Ab Igniter has got plenty of caffeine and red-hot burners, too.
Fat burners are often stimulants in disguise so it’s only natural they build around that form of simple design.
In the case of Ab Igniter, they give Caffeine the spotlight, and surround it with plenty of hot stuff included in our Best Fat Burners list. Sure, there’s some duds in there too, and some dosages could be better.
But overall, Ab Igniter stays true to its “Multipath Fat Loss Support” strategy, making it a fat-burner you can bank on. Let’s have a look and you can see for yourself, Bro:
The basic B-Complex for enhanced metabolic activity in the body. Yup, that’s about it. The forms are lower-end (methylcobalamin B12 and P-5-P B6 are preferred), and so are the dosages… but it’s good enough to contribute to ideal B-vitamin intake during your day.
Green Coffee Bean Extract, 250 mg
GCBE is standardized to 50% CGA. This means Ab Igniter supplies our #5 fat burner AND has at least 125 mg of CGA, making it a decently dosed ingredient.
Garcinia Cambogia, 250 mg
Garcinia is standardized to 60% HCA which helps block enzymes that convert carbs to fat. It just lacks the dosage we want, being mild at most, but it’s still good quality nonetheless, and YEAH bro, that’s our #3-ranked fat-burner, too!
Caffeine, 250 mg
Stimulants come and go (and sometimes get banned) but you know caffeine is here to stay. Ab igniter packs a punch with a 250 mg supply of our #2 fat-burner.
Green Tea Extract, 200 mg
This is what we consider the #1 best fat-burning ingredient out there. Being standardized is a sign of potency and serious commitment to quality. Dosage is meh, but that standardization means you get more of its active fat-burning EGCG per capsule. Awesome choice.
Razberi-K, 100 mg
A premium brand of raspberry ketones, with weight-loss functions that initiate fat burning, boost metabolism, and help block storage of fat. Dosage is at the bare minimum, but it’s definitely a quality brand of a (somewhat trendy) ingredient for weight management.
Caralluma fimbriata extract, 100 mg
Grape Seed Extract, 50 mg
This ingredient is popular for its anti-estrogenic effects among other health benefits. We think it’s in Ab Igniter to supply antioxidant activity that counters the oxidative effects of fat-burning. Ab Igniter uses a standardized form, showing off some more ingredient quality.
Nelulean, 10 mg
Another oddball ingredient, this flower is believed to help mood and blood sugar. There’s scarce information on it as a fat-burner (technically just an anti-obesogenic) and any studies associated with this flower are animal studies. It remains a premium ingredient, but we’re not sure about that small 10 mg dosage.
Ginger Root Powder, 10 mg
Definitely up there with other popular spices, ginger is known to trigger fat burning and block storage of fat. But guess what? You might be better off eating ginger snaps or drinking ginger ale. That’s how puny Ab Igniter’s 10 mg dosage is.
Guarana Seed Extract, 10 mg
Guarana’s fat burning property is because of its caffeine content and being standardized to 22% caffeine means it has an extra 2.2 mg of the stimulant. That’s like, 2 sips of coffee. With that, we wonder why Top Secret Nutrition even bothered to add this if all they were after was the caffeine. This is officially a ::Face Palm:: ingredient.
Yohimbine HCl, 3 mg
Yohimbine helps free up the body’s natural fat-burning hormones epinephrine and norepinephrine. It is a solid fat-burner, and Ab Igniter does Bros a service by isolating and supplying the active ingredient only: Yohimbine HCL. Since they separate that active ingredient out from all else in yohimbe, the 3 mg is actually a good dosage.
Ab Igniter supplies four of our five best fat burners and raspberry ketones in their standardized and premium forms. We like to think Ab Igniter could’ve just stopped it there and become a must-try fat burner.
BUT they went ahead and fairy-dusted the formula with some low-end doses of accessory ingredients which look a little “fluffy” on closer inspection.
Still, Ab Igniter’s major fat burners work well and in synergy, bro. A couple of doses could be stronger, but their ingredient selections are really spot-on.
MAJOR PROPS for showing all dosages! With that, Ab Igniter actually reminds us of some of our favorite and best-reviewed fat-burner formulas — Instant Knockout (the burner that punches you in the freakin’ face), Thermakor, Vintage Burn, to name a few — which use many of the same ingredients and have the same style of clean, transparent, all-doses-shown-no-BS-here-bro kind of style.
Overall, Ab Igniter is a good formula that’s verging on great. They got some potent standardized herbs, branded ingredients, and great fat-burners… with the X-factor being those couple of herbal exotics, which may or may not push Ab Igniter over the top.
Ab Igniter Benefits
It makes you sweat, controls appetite, speeds up your metabolism and helps burn fat to an extent. Plus, it gives you a good energy kick. Ab Igniter also makes claims about “targeting belly fat” and “reducing blood sugar spikes” that are not quite as realistic.
Who Takes It?
Definitely for six-pack enthusiasts with really high caffeine tolerance. Also for lifters cycling from their hardcore fat-burners and PWOs and need something that functions like both.
Any Side Effects?
Possibly jitters and crashes, especially if you’re not exactly used to drinking more than one cup of coffee. Since it doesn’t have anything to counteract the high caffeine content (like L-Theanine, for example) and features a couple of exotic botanicals with little research behind them, it’s best you assess your tolerance before you go all out with Ab Igniter.

Final Word on Ab Igniter
Ab Igniter has great potential. They definitely know what they’re doing with formula design, featuring many of our top fat-burners. The exotics, well, we gotta admit we’ve never even seen them in a fat-burner supplement! Doesn’t mean they don’t work; in fact, they could be sort of a “secret weapon” of this formula. With its other more well-known nutrients presented in quality forms, we’re confident Ab Igniter will help set the flab aflame.
