Maxi Nutrition Thermobol Key Features

Maxi Nutrition Thermobol is a supplement that was formally known as Maxi Muscle Thermobol. Maxi Muscle was a familiar brand name to many people who spend time training and working on fitness.

This UK Company was established in 1995 and quickly developed a good reputation for sports nutrition. However, after 20 years of trading as Maxi Muscle, in 2015 the brand name was changed to Maxi Nutrition. According to the company, this was to reflect the changes to sports nutrition over the past two decades. As the company explained, today’s sports supplements are more mainstream and appeal to a far more diverse group who are much more interested in fitness and health than they are in muscle development.

Maxi Nutrition Thermobol Key Points

  • Maxi Nutrition used to be known by the earlier name of Maxi Muscle
  • Manufactured by Maxi Nutrition, a division of HNC Healthy Nutrition Company
  • Endorsed by numerous world-class athletes

Maxi Nutrition Thermobol is part of the Lean Definition range of supplements, and the formula seems unchanged despite the company’s rename.

The supplement contains caffeine, so will increase energy levels and this combined with the green tea in the formula may be effective at helping weight loss. There is a lot of evidence that this is a winning combination.

This supplement also contains bitter orange extract – a powerful stimulant that may have weight loss benefits but does come with some health concerns. You should not take it if you have any health concerns around heart and blood pressure.

How to Take Maxi Nutrition Thermobol

  • Take 1 tablet before breakfast + 1 tablet before lunch + 1 tablet mid-afternoon
  • Take with plenty of water

Other ingredients include B vitamins and amino acids L Tyrosine and L Carnitine Tartrate, which may help energy, alertness, and muscle development.

Maxi Nutrition is a very well known supplements brand and is a division of HNC Healthy Nutrition Company (UK).

Maxi Nutrition is endorsed by many well-known athletes, including UK rugby international players including Chris Robshaw, Jamie Heaslip, and George North, as well as Olympic boxers such as Antony Ogogo, Amir Kahn, and ex Pussy Cat Doll dancer, Kimberly Wyatt.

Maximuscle Thermobol Benefits

  • Strong brand manufactured by major UK sports nutrition company
  • Potent ingredient profile that’s fully disclosed
  • Lots of consumer feedback is mostly positive

Maxi Nutrition supplements are available from a wide range of outlets including High Street stores such as Boots as well as specialist health and nutrition stores.

As expected, we could find no scams or rip-off reports for either Maxi Nutrition the company or the Thermobol product itself.

What does Maxi Nutrition Thermobol claim to do?

The wording has changed a little on the Maxi Nutrition Thermobol product page but essentially, the claims for this supplement remain the same.

According to the advertising:

Make sure your supplements work as hard as you do. Thermobol provides the energising effects of caffeine with specific vitamins and chromium to support your training goals.

Thermobol supports weight loss, definition and helps maintain a health metabolism

And contains:

A unique blend of nutrients to support your lean definition goals.

In addition:

Thermobol provides the energising effects of caffeine with specific vitamins and chromium to support your training goals.

You can see from the claims that training, hard work, and exercise are important to potential results.

Does Maxi Nutrition Thermobol work?

Unlike many diet supplements, Thermobol contains potent ingredients in high amounts and this is not going to suit everyone.

When used with a healthy diet plan and regular training programme that includes intense exercise, Thermobol should help you to shift stubborn fat. There is evidence that some of the ingredients such as green tea combined with caffeine, the amino acids and the vitamins will help support health and increase metabolism. The stimulants may help motivate you and reduce your appetite.

A high number of consumers have testified that this supplement works. That said you will need to use with caution. A lot of people have reported associated side effects so it obviously is not suitable if you are sensitive to stimulants like caffeine. We all have different tolerances so it will largely depend upon your own physical makeup.

Maxi Nutrition Thermobol Ingredients

Consumers need to be aware of the high stimulant content. Maxi Nutrition makes no secret of the fact that it contains a lot of caffeine; in fact, the full serving is 444mg of caffeine per day.

We are slightly concerned, as with the original product that the advertising seems to gloss over the Bitter Orange content, a stimulant that could make this supplement unsuitable for some people.

The ingredient list is not for the faint-hearted. What you normally see in a daily serving in most other diet pills you get in just one Thermobol tablet!

This means that the ingredients could be too strong for some people.

The ingredient amounts listed below are for 1 capsule only. So you should be aware that the recommended daily consumption is 3 times the amounts listed below:

  • Bitter Orange Peel (325mg): Also known as Citrus Aurantium this is a popular weight loss ingredient said to be as effective as ephedrine for boosting metabolism and suppressing appetite. However, it is not suitable for everyone and can increase heart rate and blood pressure.
  • L-Tyrosine (300mg): Non-essential amino acid, l-tyrosine has had a number of claims behind it for weight loss. Suggested to help in suppressing appetite and works to promote healthy thyroid function and improved, more efficient metabolism. It is said to work better when taken with certain B vitamins, which may explain the use of them in this product.
    Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tyrosine
  • L-Carnitine L-Tartrate (300mg): This amino was not included in the original ingredients profile but is the only change to the original formula. Your body makes Carnitine in the kidneys and liver and stores it in the muscles, heart and brain. Taking it in supplement form it may help energy production, support the metabolism and help muscle development.
  • Caffeine (148mg): A number of studies have found caffeine to improve alertness and sports performance. Other benefits have been suggested to be boosting metabolism and suppressing appetite. The amounts here are fairly high, especially per day so we would exercise caution if stimulants affect you negatively.
  • Green Tea extract (100mg): Healthy ingredient shown to promote increases in metabolism in sufficient amounts. According to some clinical investigation, Green tea combined with resistance training may lead to a decrease in body fat. Other clinical research suggests it combines well with caffeine.
    Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17201629
  • Guarana Seed power (12mg): Added source of caffeine. Gurana contains more caffeine than the coffee bean so will add to the stimulant effect.
  • Bioperine (5mg): Also known as Black Pepper Extract. Appears to increase the rate of absorption of nutrients.
  • Chromium (67mcg): Although popular in diet pills its effectiveness has been questioned in a study that looked at varying amounts from 200 to 1,000mg a day, finding no significant benefits to body mass or composition. However, it may be effective at treating diabetes.
    Source: http://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/Chromium-HealthProfessional
  • Cayenne extract (0.1mg): Some studies have suggested when consumed in the correct amounts, cayenne can increase body temperature helping to boost metabolism, leading to more calories being burnt. It’s unlikely this ingredient will do anything at all in such a minuscule amount.
  • Selection of B Vitamins (B1, B5, B7, and B12): Found in the recommended daily amounts and said to help with fat metabolism, energy in the body and work at the cellular level in the body.

This supplement is strong. We have not revised our original opinion of this supplement since we last reviewed it and despite the addition of L Carnitine, the formula is unchanged.

Thermobol will not be suitable for everyone and for many customers side effects will probably outweigh the benefits. Even habitual users of stimulants should use it with caution at first.

However, there is a demand for a strong fat burner diet supplements and we feel that Thermobol will deliver what it promises. The daily serving size means you get potent amounts that should help promote fat burning. If you are looking for a strong fat burner, it will probably fit the bill

In addition, you do have the assurance that Thermobol will not contain undisclosed ingredients and is made in the UK in adherence to industry guidelines.

Maxi Nutrition Thermobol Side Effects

The potential side effects of Thermobol will mainly relate to the stimulants. If you are sensitive to stimulants, you should not take this supplement. In addition, you should avoid caffeine from other sources throughout use, and not take too close to bedtime.

Side effects may include:

  • Jitteriness
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Increased heart rate
  • Elevated blood pressure
  • Upset stomach/ nausea

Caution: Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Do not take if you have health issues relating to heart or blood pressure. Speak to your doctor before taking if you have any type of medical condition or are taking prescription medication. Thermobol may aggravate certain conditions and may interact with medication.

Maxi Nutrition Thermobol Customer Feedback

There are numerous independent customer reviews for Maxi Nutrition Thermobol. The overriding opinion is positive but there are negative comments as well.

This customer is wholeheartedly positive:

I don’t normally write reviews but felt this is something I do rave about to everyone as I felt it has most definitely helped me on my weight loss journey and I continue to use them to keep it off and give me a great energy boost at the gym. I have a few friends that use them, even my mum! Great product

Lots of customers state it works as advertised:

Does what it says on the tin

And there are many short reviews along the lines of:

Very good product

However, some people have experienced side effects:

After first tablet I was full of energy and thought this is really gonna work for me. But after a second at lunch time I felt dizzy and shaky…My mum also tried one and she also felt sick and shaky. Some people might be okay with them but for me they are VERY STRONG

One customer advises caution:

The whole idea of Thermobol tablets is that they are there to give you a boost of energy that you may need to work hard and have greater focus in the gym and get about your day. Something similar to coffee but with some added benefits.

It is said that you should take 3 tablets a day, but in my opinion that is not necessary as 1/2 a day can be more than enough depending on the length of your working day.

We think this sounds like good advice, especially when you start taking this supplement. You can always reduce the dose to match your own needs and tolerance.

Maxi Nutrition Thermobol Money-Back Guarantee

There is a 40-day money-back guarantee but there are conditions.

Firstly, you are required to use the product for 30 days as instructed whilst eating a healthy diet and sensible training programme.

After which time you can send the original packaging with information on your training programme and meal plans for Maxi Nutrition to review whether a full refund applies.

Watchdog Verdict

There is no denying that this supplement contains stimulants that will not agree with everyone. However, there is always going to be a demand for strong fat burning stimulant supplements and, although you do need to be careful when using them, this demand is not going to go away.

If you are looking for this type of supplement, our opinion is that Thermobol is safer than most without compromising on strength.

Many users have not suffered any adverse effects and have reported success whilst using Thermobol. It is a popular supplement, which is well tried and tested.

Thermobol is manufactured in the UK by HNC Healthy Nutrition Company, so you do have the assurance it fully complies with industry and safety standards and will not contain undisclosed ingredients.

In addition, Maxi Nutrition has a great reputation across the sports world. The company offers a money-back guarantee and they are a reputable company to deal with. It’s worth pointing out that their guarantee is subject to review by Maxi Nutrition; they will look at your training and meal plan whilst taking the supplement and then determine whether or not they feel a refund is warranted. We have no idea how many refunds they give out based upon their review criteria. In addition, Thermobol is well priced and seems to offer good value for money.

Our opinion is that if you know the risks but are looking for a supplement that works in unison with your training, then Maxi Nutrition Thermobol may be the one for you. But for the general user, it may be a bit riskier, particularly as it contains bitter orange peel (the uncertainty behind the money-back guarantee is also somewhat disconcerting). Therefore we cannot recommend this product to everybody.
