We take an in depth look at Tanked Strike to find out more.
We are not very impressed by Tanked Strike. There is a lack of information about this company which is making us nervous and one Facebook page is not enough to provide any reassurance.
There is zero information about Tanked Strike’s origins and whether it was made in the UK in accordance to basic safety and hygiene standards or imported from elsewhere. If it was imported from China for example, there could be a risk of additional ingredients, which don’t show up on the list. The advertising should include this basic information.
That said, the listed ingredients are a matter for concern. This supplement contains a mix of stimulants and could cause potentially dangerous side effects such as heart attacks or strokes. We are pleased that Bodybuilding Warehouse has provided some clear health warnings – we just hope customers will take the time to learn the risks before they take the capsules.
The list of potential side effects is long and includes jitteriness, anxiety, vomiting, nausea, headaches, migraines, tachycardia, palpitations, hypertension, arrhythmia, stroke and heart attack. It could also get you disqualified if you compete in a drug-tested discipline.
You can buy Tanked Strike from a couple of online retailers. However, the company seem to favour the Bodybuilding Warehouse over others. The company’s Facebook links straight to this one company. One tub of 84 capsules (approximately one month’s supply depending on your tolerance) costs £19.99. Shipping to UK addresses is £1.99.
We do think that Tanked Strike will probably work in the way as described. We think it will probably decrease your appetite and make you feel jittery so if you want these effects, then this supplement will tick the right boxes. However, this supplement is not safe and we would never recommend anyone to take it. It is an easy decision. We reject Tanked Strike.
Tanked Strike is a fat burner that is aimed at people looking for phenomenal results in their diet and training and from its description as a “weapon’s grade” supplement, we are getting the impression that this supplement is strong.
Tanked Strike contains stimulants, including caffeine and Citrus Aurantium – a source of the stimulant chemical synephrine. Both these ingredients will “enhance” energy but you will need to take care because this can affect your heart and blood pressure levels. Synephrine in particular does come with health concerns and has been linked to causing strokes and heart attacks, so you should be aware of these risks before you take it.
Tanked Strike also contains a hefty serving of green tea at 500mg. Although in general, green tea is a safe and healthy ingredient with weight loss benefits, it does contain caffeine so will add to the general stimulant effect, as will the small serving of green coffee extract.
Green coffee contains a natural chemical called chlorogenic acid, which is often described as a natural fat burner because it may slow the release of glucose into the blood stream and reduce LDL cholesterol.
To assess tolerance consume 1 capsule twice per day for the first 7 days.
Once tolerance has been assessed and you feel comfortable taking a higher dosage, take 2 capsules on an empty stomach upon waking with water. You may if you wish, take 2 capsules again 30 minutes prior to lunch with water.
For an explosive workout, take 2 capsules prior to training. Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day.
DO NOT EVER exceed 4 capsules per day.
The final two ingredients are Phenylalanine an amino acid that may affect the chemical messengers in the brain and is sometimes taken for disorders such as ADHD and depression, and capsicum extract. Capsicum is a natural fat burner. If you have ever experienced the sensation of breaking out into a sweat after eating a chilli pepper, then you will know that in natural form, this ingredient does have this capability. According to some research, capsicum in supplement form works in the same way and as an added advantage may help increase serotonin levels too.
There isn’t a huge amount of information about Tanked Supplements. The only background to this company is their Facebook page, which comes with the claims.
TANKED make the strongest supplements in the world – we want you to get big, FAST. We don’t accept weakness and don’t take no for an answer.
There is little in the way of real information such as the company’s location or manufacturing process or whether Tanked Strike is made in accordance to GMP (good manufacturing process).
Without this assurance, this supplement could be imported from China so you will not have a guarantee that it is safe.
However, Tanked Strike is on sale from UK company Body Building Warehouse. This company specialise in body building supplements and look to be a reputable business. We have covered Body Building Warehouse supplements before such as Warrior Blaze Reborn.
According to the product advertising:
TANKED STRIKE is a state of the art weight management system designed to energise your system.
When used synergistically with a sensible diet and workout regime, TANKED STRIKE may help to support your energy levels and help you achieve the body that you have always desired
There are five key facts about this supplement:
According to the product information:
TANKED STRIKE has been designed and formulated by a team of experts in the field of biochemistry, hormonal and human adrenal response dynamics.
It contains “ingredients within TANKED STRIKE have been scientifically proven.”
However, there are no details about this so-called team of experts. There is no explanation about the scientific proof to these ingredients or links to any clinical evidence.
Tanked Strike may help you lose some weight. If you are looking for a stimulant to increase your work out energy and to put you off eating, then it may work. However, side effects may be an issue and in addition, this type of weight loss is rarely permanent.
Drugs, which mimic the fight or flight response by increasing the stress hormones, are called sympathomimetic agents and these do not have a good record for long-term weight loss. Once you stop taking them, the weight will come straight back, in the same way as it does following an illness.
In addition, there are health risks. According to reports, “strokes and cardiac arrhythmias have been the major concern about supplements containing the sympathomimetic drug, synephrine.”
Tanked Strike is a weight loss supplement. Each serving is equal to two capsules. Amounts here provided per serving.
Tanked Strike may cause potential side effects including:
It could also get you disqualified if you compete in some drug-tested discipline.

Here are some customer reviews posted on the Bodybuilding Warehouse website, the major outlet for Tanked Strike.
All are extremely positive and along the lines of:
Great product, fat loss has been incredible on these!
While we are not accusing the company of posting fake reviews, it is possible that they have filtered the customer responses to only show positive feedback.
In most cases, even with the best of products, someone will complain about something, so 100% glowing feedback left by all customers is not necessarily telling the whole story.
Tanked Strike does not come with a guarantee.
Tanked Strike is unlikely to be on the shelves of most supplement retailers so this easiest way to buy it is online.
