LA Muscle is a British company based in London. Founded in 1998, the company provides a range of supplements aimed predominantly at athletes and bodybuilders.
LA Muscle’s Fat Stripper Intense looks OK as a fat burner and it may offer some support if you use it with a diet or exercise plan. However, it is extremely expensive and if you use the upper serving size of 6 capsules a day, your bottle will only last 2 weeks. The principle ingredient is caffeine so we cannot see anything here to justify the £59.99 price tag. That said the green tea/caffeine combo may be effective for some users. It is important to remember that all LA Muscle supplements come with a money-back guarantee, so you could get your money back if you were disappointed.
This supplement looks pretty safe and side effects will depend upon your own physical makeup and the serving size (3-6 capsules daily) you decide to take.
Caffeine side effects may include increased heart rate and blood pressure, jitteriness, insomnia, and increased anxiety levels.
Other effects may include headache, nausea, fatigue, heartburn, stomach pains, and diarrhoea.
Speak to your doctor before using if you have an underlying medical or mental health issue or are taking prescription medication. You should not take choline supplements if you suffer from bipolar disorder.
Fat Stripper Intense is very expensive. Buy from the LA Muscle website and one bottle of 90 capsules (2-4 weeks supply) costs £59.99. Shipping is free to UK addresses (orders over £50.00 are free).
International delivery is very expensive. Shipping is free on orders over £100.00, but otherwise can cost anything from £8.45 (Belgium) to £61.00 (Estonia), with prices seemingly randomly applied at anything in between.
You can also buy Fat Stripper Intense via Amazon UK for £49.99.
Bizarrely, it is cheaper on Amazon USA where you can buy the same sized 90 capsule bottle for just $30.00.
Fat Stripper Intense looks OK. It has been voted highly in Men’s Fitness magazine, winning a silver medal in the fat burner category, and we do like the combination of caffeine and green tea because this seems to work for many people without too many adverse effects.
That said, we think the claims are completely over exaggerated, and we can’t see why this pretty standard ingredients combination should work so much better than many other products on the market. The answer is, it doesn’t but with the powerful advertising and all those thousands of only positive reviews, it is hard to go against the tide of so-called opinion, even if this has been totally invented by the advertising.
We would have liked to know the exact caffeine serving too, but this information is not provided.
In our opinion, this fat burner looks OK and it might work for some, but is certainly nothing to set the world alight especially at £59.99 a bottle.
Overall we think it looks like a waste of money, so we do not recommend LA Muscle Fat Stripper Intense to the Watchdog readers.
Fat Stripper Intense is a fat burner that the advertising claims will help you lose substantial weight within just three days.
It contains 7 ingredients. The two principle components are Green Tea extract and Guarana – a Brazilian bean extract that is higher in caffeine than the coffee bean. There is strong evidence that this combination can help weight loss by increasing the speed of the metabolism much faster than either ingredient used on its own.
The other ingredients in Fat Stripper Intense also look good. There is Yerba Mate, another South American inspired ingredient choice which may have weight loss benefits. There is N Acetyl L Tyrosine, a supplement form of L Tyrosine, an amino acid obtainable from animal protein, such as cheese, meat, and fish, and important for strength and energy. Alpha Lipoic Acid, Choline Bitartrate, and Cayenne pepper complete the formula. All the components of this supplement look pretty effective and unless you have a sensitivity to caffeine, should be safe for most people to take. Check out the ingredients tab to find out more.
According to the advertising, Fat Stripper Intense is an award-winning supplement. We have heard all this before from LA Muscle regarding Norateen Heavyweight II, also described as award-winning but with zero independent evidence that it was even true.
By contrast, Fat Stripper Intense was voted the 2nd best fat burner supplement on the market by Men’s Fitness magazine in 2018, which based the findings on a user poll. We have no idea how many people voted on this of course, but it does suggest that this supplement is safe and popular and with over 53,000 customer feedback comments left on the official website, this positive opinion is reinforced.

We have covered LA Muscle supplements in previous reviews including LA Muscle Norateen Heavyweight II which is one of the company’s principle supplements. We have also covered LA Muscle Bloat No More and LA Muscle REPO.
According to the advertising,
“You see results in 1-3 days, no killing yourself in the gym, you take NO RISK”
Fat Stripper Intense is the strongest natural fat burner you can buy, ideal for men and women, containing 7 fantastic ingredients, including Choline and Green Tea.”
According to the advertising, Fat Stripper Intense is a sure fire way to lose fat.
“Or over 20 years, one weight loss supplement has consistently delivered results for millions of men and women. No matter how much weight you need to lose, Fat Stripper Intense is going to start working within 3 days and you will see NOTICEABLE results or you get 100% of your money back. YOU TAKE NO RISK. Join millions of others who have consistently seen immediate results. Why waste money on cheaper dubious supplements or suffer unduly with health or image issues associated with excess weight.”
We think that Fat Stripper Intense will work as long as you combine it with a weight loss diet and exercise program. Although the individual capsules are not overly strong, you are advised that you can take up to 6 caps a day. So this supplement really is as strong as you make it but of course, you will run through supplies if you take 6 caps a day.
The ingredients profile looks reasonably effective. The principle ingredients are green tea and guarana, which is high in caffeine. The exact quantity of caffeine neither is nor provided, but with 100mg of guarana per capsule, it should be close to the amount found in a cup of ordinary instant coffee (about 100mg). It is important to note that Yerba Mate also contains caffeine in unknown quantities, so the caffeine content in total could be high.
Green tea is rich in antioxidants, (ECGC epigallocatechin-3-gallate and polyphenols) which have been found to have anti-obesity and fat burning properties. According to some clinical investigation, Green tea combined with resistance training may lead to a decrease in body fat. So if you already work out, you may find some improvement to your efforts.
Other clinical research suggests it combines well with caffeine, making the effects of both the caffeine and the green tea stronger than if used individually, although this has not been seen in all users especially if you already a high caffeine consumer.
Some animal studies suggest that Yerba Mate may help improve leptin function, the hormone that signals that you are full, so there may be an appetite reducing aspect to this supplement.
The other ingredients; choline bitartrate, and Alpha Lipoic acid are both present in dietary foodstuffs and may have general health benefits, although weight loss seems unlikely.
N Acetyl-L-tyrosine helps the body make tyrosine, an amino acid in the body that is used to make chemical messengers. In this form, it is especially beneficial for improving mental performance.
Most side effects are going to be related to caffeine, so may include:
Supplements containing tyrosine can cause:
At serving sizes up to 300mg a day, Choline supplements can cause:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor before use if you suffer from an underlying health condition, including mental health or are taking prescription medication. Choline for example should not be taken if you have a bipolar condition.
There are over 50,000 customer reviews for Fat Stripper Intense posted on the official website. This is impressive, and also astounding is that there do not seem to be any reviews that are less than completely positive.
It is important to remember that this supplement has been on the market for 20 years, and while we believe that customer comments are genuine, it seems likely that LA Muscle simply doesn’t post negative reviews.
Here is a selection of feedback comments,
My go to product to shift my yo-yo dieting weight! Awesome!
Easy to swallow capsules. No obvious adverse effects on digestion or cognitive function. Some weight loss has occurred.
Fantastic product, works wonders
Fat Stripper Intense is also on sale via Amazon UK where it has only attracted 29 reviews, and Amazon USA where it has been reviewed by 8 users. Opinion is not anywhere near as favourable as is seen on the official site.
Some customers are happy, such as this reviewer,
Been taking for a while and am happy with results
I thought these would boost my exercise efforts… But I was very wrong, managed to lose what definition I did have!
Does not work – and I exercise a lot!
This customer kept the dose down to 3 a day and was disappointed,
Can’t say I’m impressed really. I exercise and eat reasonably ok. But I’ve not noticed any difference since using these. I don’t take loads though so maybe for people wanting to take 2 before every meal etc they may work better?
After 3wks of using this product I am very disappointed with the results. I changed my whole routine because I wanted to lose the spare tyre and added this product for what it claims to do, however there has been no change still the same weight actually eating less so in all I have to say what a rip off!!!
