It’s a lot like Shred Matrix but fatter. Way, way fatter.
Some people like the idea of getting a lot of things in one capsule but supplements aren’t meant to act like multivitamins. This ain’t no Centrum that’s supposed to be complete from A to Zinc. And you know what? FitMiss BURN is really similar to another MusclePharm product called Shred Matrix. Seriously, it’s almost the same except FitMiss BURN has more layers.
Let’s break down the ingredients in this formula:
STAGE 1 & 2: Energy & Focus Complex
- Guarana and Caffeine. These two are your energy sources and we know Caffeine is 100 mg and Guarana probably has a little bit more than that. Guarana’s benefit is it’s a slow-release ingredient which means you get good energy for longer periods of time without the jitters. That’s right, it’s a clean source of energy if you’re not into caffeine spikes.
- Pyroglutamic acid. It’s a form of glutamine and glutamine is often used as a performance enhancer but bro you won’t get that with this dose.
- Green Tea Extract. Standardized to 40% EGCG, Green Tea is our #1 fat burner but with less than 100 mg to work with, we’re not sure what else it can possibly do.
- Papain. Papain is the enzyme found in those scrumptious papayas. It has inflammation benefits but apart from that we’re not sure why it’s here either.
- Yerba Mate. Oh look, another caffeine source!
- Yohimbine HCl. The thing with yohimbine is it can be pretty
deadlypotent in really tiny doses. How tiny? Like 2-3 mg tiny, bro.
Stage 3: Appetite Reduction & Fat Metaboliser
- Glucomannan. It’s a fat-loss fiber and is really popular for appetite control. Too bad it requires at least 500 mg to work.
- Raspberry Ketones. One popular fat burner known to target belly fat.
- Guar Gum. It’s another soluble fiber that, like Glucomannan, requires heavy dosages to work.
- Saw Palmetto. This is for prostate health. Again, this is for a human body with BALLS. The last time I checked, women didn’t have no balls. FAIL!
- ALA. Alpha Lipoic Acid is both a nootropic and fat burner and works by boosting cell energy metabolism.
- Gymnema Sylvestre. It helps with blood sugar so we’re thinking it should also act to reduce appetite.
- Eleuthero. This is supposed to be an adaptogen. I guess if you don’t feel stressed you don’t get hungry?
- Fo-Ti. This herb is used in traditional Chinese medicine and is a good source of Resveratrol. Its benefits are mostly for the heart and blood and perhaps works like Gymnema.
- D-Biotin. This is your vitamin B7 in its active form which is good for overall metabolic health.
- Banaba Extract. It’s not a fat burner but it helps stabilize blood sugar…again.
- Cayenne. It’s a pretty hot fat burner and your taste buds will attest to that. They got the heat score right at 40,000 HU/g but at this dosage, we don’t think it matters.
- Calcium Malate. Well it’s a calcium supplement.
- White Kidney Bean. This ingredient blocks carb absorption.
- Chromium Chelate. Chelate is a poor form for an otherwise effective appetite suppressant that can work in really tiny doses.
Stage 4: Stress Alleviating & Mood Balancer.
- Turmeric. It slows brain degeneration and is more of a brain health ingredient than anything else.
- Panax ginseng and 5-HTP. It’s a stress busting and energizing adaptogen and works well with 5-HTP, an ingredient that also helps with appetite control along with being a good mood booster.
- Echinacea Angustifolia. There’s not much about this that makes it belong to a fat burner. It’s something you usually take for recovery purposes but as far as stress and mood is concerned, we don’t got no study to show.
- Garlic. Yep. Count Dracula’s arch nemesis itself makes an appearance here. Good thing is garlic extract is capable of alleviating stress but you need at least 100 mg of the stuff to have some of its stress-benefits.
- Wood Betony. A study thinks it’s good for diabetes. We couldn’t find anything for stress.
- Astragalus. It’s a bioavailability booster meaning it enhances nutrient absorption. We prefer black pepper, though.
Stage 5: Water Shed Diuretic Complex
- Uva Ursi, Dandelion, and Potassium. These three ingredients help you shoot water out of you like a fire hydrant while making sure you keep some good ‘ol electrolytes for your bodily functions.
Stage 6: Enzymatic Matrix
- DigiSEB®. This is a quality branded blend of super enzymes which should promote proper digestion. It ain’t a fat burner.
- Ginger. It’s a good extra ingredient for fat burning but this blend only uses its digestion benefits.
- Fennel. This is actually a popular diuretic. Misplaced ingredient?
- Almond Oil. Almonds are good T-boosters due to their magnesium content. As an oil, its uses revolve around skin health benefits but it’s known to help with IBS. Yep, still not a fat burner.
- Dulse. This is seaweed known for its antioxidants.
- Alfalfa. Another ingredient for digestion.
- Chlorella. Good source of Iron and B12 and seems to be taken as an antioxidant eznyme.
- Artichoke. Artichoke is known to supply luteolin, an enzyme that promotes cAMP. Too bad we didn’t get the extract and got stuck with the leaf.
- Irish Moss Red Algae. Good for your gut microbes.
- Wild Mexican Yam. This ingredient is deemed to be a little good for menopausal symptoms.
- Apple Pectin. Soluble fiber like Glucomannan.
- Kelp. Kelp is another appetite suppressant and blood glucose ingredient that won’t work due to dosage.
- Bromelain. Kinda like Papain but not papain. Its enzyme is good for inflammation.
- Rutin NF. Its good for your skin due to its collagen content but the dose, though.
Here’s the deal with FitMiss. We like the idea of stages since having some sort of organized division in your formula makes it look like you’re serious. I mean, I don’t know how exactly do you do these stages since they all end up mixed anyway but at least you’re showing us you’re trying. With that said, we really can’t find it in ourselves to tell people this 45-ingredient bag of whatchamacallits will somehow be enough to induce the kind of burning the female body will appreciate.
The only salvageable “blends” here are your Energy and Nootropic blends and when we say salvageable we’re really stretching it. Everything else looks like some guy from marketing thought it was a great idea to mash up all these popular (and not so popular) ingredients together so people would go out and say “Hey sis! Check this out! It has ALL the fat burning ingredients I’ve heard of! It HAS to work, right?”
Sadly, a good chunk of people still think somewhere along those lines but for us who do know the importance of dosages and quality of ingredients, FitMiss BURN just ended up burning itself into a 45-ingredient pile of non-functioning herbs and enzyme ash. And bro, they ain’t no sexy phoenix gon’ come out of that ash.
FitMiss BURN Benefits
What we know FitMiss BURN can give is energy and probably enough to keep you from falling asleep when you try to knock yourself out with treadmills and spin workouts. You probably won’t get any headaches too which is always a good thing.
Who Takes It?
Fitness bunnies who are just starting out with supplements and have no clue as to what’s good for them. Also, girls who think a special fat burner is necessary for women.
Any Side Effects?
Individually, the ingredients listed may have little to no side effects. Even caffeine might not give much of a kick since it’s just 100 mg (other caffeine sources are “cleaner”). The problem is when you mix it all up and let your body be shotgunned by all these substances at once.
You know what, I think those enzymes are there specifically because the formula will give you digestive problems. I don’t know about the female body but our male stomachs might not even appreciate the digestive benefits if we take something to get it upset in the first place.
FitMiss BURN Summary
- Energy. Lots of caffeine sources.
- Anti-stress. Adaptogens should work the way they’re meant to work.
- Sloppy formula. 45 ingredients in one small capsule?!
- Underdoses. You can’t give them all great doses.
- Useless ingredients. No dosage, no function.
- Enzymes. Why would you need enzymes in a fat burner?
- What burn? Seriously bro, what burn?
- Expensive. Better off buying separate ingredients.
Pricing & Buying Info
- 1 bottle (45 servings): $49.99
- Available online and in retail stores
Final Word on FitMiss BURN
As much as we like to give respect to this FitMiss BURN, there is no chivalry in the world of supplements. We want to say it works but the best we can do is say it kinda works but mostly does not, rather, cannot possibly do as advertised. We like the intent behind the addition of that many ingredient but a sloppy formula is sloppy no matter how fancy your ingredients are.
If you want something that does something like this (with 40 ingredients!) but really knows their shit, we suggest you check out this review.
