TWINLAB’s Ripped Fuel has been offered for more than ten years. It includes an efficient mix of ingredients, the majority of which should still be familiar to individuals who have looked at a few thermogenic products.
TWINLAB’s Ripped Fuel should be taken throughout the day; 2 capsules should be ingested before each meal. There are advantages and disadvantages to this style of dosing; an advantage is that the user will experience the effect of the product in a timely manner. However, it also contains caffeine. And users are also at risk of developing a high caffeine tolerance from consuming caffeine 3 times a day, every day. If this mode of administering dosages is not combined with proper diet and exercise, it can have negative effects and users may possibly even develop a dependency in order to achieve “normal” energy levels.
The most important part of TIMELAB’s Ripped Fuel formula is the blend of bitter orange extract, caffeine, and St. John’s Wort. This blend of ingredients was used in a study published in Therapeutic Research that suggested the combination might promote fat burning when accompanied by diet and exercise. St. John’s Wort is normally recommended for depression and proper mood maintenance; it may also aid users in maintaining a positive mood throughout a diet and training program. Although there are other potentially beneficial ingredients, such as yohimbe, coleus, and phenylalanine, in a product that offers 310 mg. of Metabolic Blend in each 2 capsules, their presence is of little significance.
