Could this supplement finally be the one that really does help you lose weight fast, or is it just another product in a saturated market that doesn’t live up to its claims? We take a look at SAS Nutrition Vapor 2-1 below to find out.
SAS Nutrition Vapor 2-1 is a supplement for weight loss and increased energy. It also claims to increase concentration, and suppress appetite. It uses stimulants and an amino acid alongside Citrus Aurantium. Citrus Aurantium contains Synephrine which has been found to speed up heart rate and raise blood pressure, and could lead to harmful health effects even in otherwise healthy people. This can be particularly problematic when taken in combination with stimulants such as caffeine as it is here. It has been linked to a number of serious side effects and deaths.
This product contains a few of different stimulants, including a potential 400mg of caffeine anhydrous in one serving of 2 capsules, which is the recommended daily limit. Add to that the other ingredients that also contain caffeine, and you are looking at going well over the recommended amount in a single dose, leading to the many side effects associated with that.
Vapor 2-1 is manufactured by SAS Nutrition, a supplement company based in Glasgow, Scotland.
There are side effects associated with the use of Citrus Aurantium and its active ingredient, Synephrine. It can speed up heart rate and raise blood pressure, and could lead to harmful health effects and has been linked to a number of deaths. It is particularly problematic when taken in combination with stimulants such as caffeine (which this product contains).
Headaches, including migraines, and nausea have also been found by users as a side effect. In addition to the fact that Synephrine has not been found to have a significant effect on fat loss or energy, the side effects are a big concern here.
There are lots of potential side effects from the high caffeine content, including headache, insomnia, irritability, diarrhoea, nausea, increased heart rate and breathing, and high blood pressure.
N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine can cause nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, heartburn, diarrhoea, and seizures. It can also cause the urine, breath, and sweat to have a “fishy” odour.
SAS Nutrition Vapor 2-1 contains a lot of stimulants at high doses, and therefore likely side effects. It is likely that the consumer has increased energy after taking the supplement due to all the stimulants and therefore could workout more efficiently, but that is probably all it is going to do. It contains Caffeine Anhydrous; a highly concentrated form of caffeine, often used to stimulate athletic performance or weight loss. A daily dose of this supplement is going to take you over the recommended daily limit which can lead to side effects.
Synephrine, found in Citrus Aurantium has been shown to increase resting metabolic rate and energy expenditure, and help with weight loss. However, there are very dangerous side effects associated with Synephrine, and it is banned from use in some places which makes its addition in this supplement very questionable.
Only one or two capsules are taken each day, which means that the potential effects are not continuous throughout the day, and you would have to be very careful not to take this supplement close to bedtime because of the high caffeine content.
There are other issues, such as the lack of a money-back guarantee. Overall we do not recommend SAS Nutrition Vapor 2-1 to our readers.
SAS Nutrition Vapor 2-1 is a thermogenic fat burner supplement, meaning that it contains ingredients that will help to increase the metabolism and raise body temperature which also helps you burn off those extra calories more easily. The supplement also promises increased energy, improved concentration, and reduced appetite.
The supplement contains a lot of stimulants, including Synephrine from the Citrus Aurantium as well as a very high level of caffeine, which is likely to take the consumer over the recommended daily dose and leading to potential side effects.
One of the ingredients in SAS Nutrition Vapor 2-1 is N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine, which is often used as a brain booster, due to its ability to increase alertness and mitochondrial capacity. It is also linked with fat burning, but studies do not show very good results and any fat loss seen is likely to be from the increased activity a person may do from the increased energy they have from supplementation. As well as this, it appears here at a very low dose of only 2mg per capsule; the recommended dose is between 630-2,500mg per day.
It is likely that taking this supplement would lead to an increase in energy levels and ability to focus, from the caffeine that it contains. This could lead to more effective workouts and consequently fat loss, but the supplement is very unlikely to improve fat loss alone.
An increase in metabolism could be seen from the caffeine in the green tea extract as well as the caffeine anhydrous, however any effects would only last a few hours after taking the supplement.
Vapor 2-1 is manufactured by a Scottish company, SAS Nutrition who sell their products online as well as in their store in Glasgow. There is very little information available online about the company or the people behind it.
SAS Nutrition Vapor 2-1 claims to incinerate fat and take your weight loss to a new high, with the perfect blend of thermobolic stimulation to push through any weight-loss plateau. They say it gives increased energy and concentration and reduces appetite.
We think it is likely that SAS Nutrition Vapor 2-1 will provide a stimulant effect. It contains 200mg of caffeine anhydrous per serving as well as many other stimulants (including even more caffeine from the green tea and guarana) so the consumer is likely to notice increased energy levels which could mean that you work harder at the gym, but could also leave you feeling jittery and unwell.
The N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine could theoretically increase a users alertness so it could help you to focus more during workouts, but the levels are way too low to really have any effect.
We do also have some concerns about the supplement. The levels of caffeine are extremely high and the user would need to avoid coffee and other drinks containing caffeine. The product contains Synephrine which is the active ingredient in Citrus Aurantium (or bitter orange). This has been shown to speed up heart rate and raise blood pressure, and could lead to harmful health effects. This can be particularly problematic when taken in combination with stimulants such as caffeine (which this product contains a lot of). It has been linked to a number of serious side effects and even deaths.
Headaches, including migraines, and nausea have also been found by users as a side effect. In addition to this, Synephrine has not been found to have a significant effect on fat loss or energy.
The ingredients used in SAS Nutrition Vapor 2-1 are listed below. The ingredient quantities listed are correct for 1 capsule.
