Supplements are more or less endorsed by professional bodybuilders and athletes but most of the time people actually take their time to ask around or look up reviews. Some even go as far as research each ingredient or dive in and discuss the product in question in forums.
LMNITRX seems to say there’s no need to do that anymore. Their reason is mainly because they’re a company founded by actual athletes. Okay, that sounds reasonable so we’ll take them up on that challenge and review their best selling product: MELT, a fat burning supplement.
Is MELT a product you won’t have to look into? Let’s find out!
About LMNITRX MELT
According to their website, MELT is sold as a fat burner and appetite suppressant and their cause is to fight obesity in America. They also say it’s their best selling fat burner that gives you the result you’re looking for without the jitters. We’re like “Wow, okay. Where’s the formula?” and truth be told there is no formula on their website. It’s completely devoid of the information we need to judge a product. That’s not exactly promising now is it? Good thing our researchers know where to look. Formula notes:
- No Jitters: A lot of supplements claim this but so few pull this off.
- Good cause: The company aims to fight obesity but we all know supplements alone can’t do that.
- Prop blend: But we thought athletes hate prop blends?

Poorly designed formula makes MELT not as hot as it sounds.
MELT does a wonderful job at marketing itself as a potent fat burner backed by a company founded by actual athletes, people who’ve been through the grit and grind and know exactly what people like us need. This is why we’re here wondering how the hell they messed this one up. It’s confused, imbalanced, and we’re not sure how it got the go-signal from actual athletes. Let’s break down the ingredients in this formula:
Caffeine, 250 mg
More than a third of the capsule contains caffeine, our #2 fat burner. It can set your body into fat burning mode faster than you can drink a shot of espresso in the morning.
Choline Bitartate, 167 mg
This is a really, really poor form of choline which makes it cheap and a popular choice. It’s a nootropic but it can also function as an appetite suppressant although this form and dosage makes us think it will barely do both. If we had it our way, we would’ve used Citicoline like this mega brain booster does.
Proprietary Blend, 300 mg
- L-Carnitine is known to funnel fatty acids into cells’ mitochondria which helps optimize thermogenesis and give the user more energy. It’s an amazing metabolic booster but we think the dosage is too small for it to work.
- Beta Phenylethylamine is also known as BPEA or PEA and is actually a nootropic that helps boosts our mood by tweaking dopamine and serotonin. As a weight loss ingredient, it’s supposed to make you so happy you’ll forget about being hungry. Too bad the only study we have was done on rats.
- Cayenne as Capsimax is a welcome addition in any fat burner. You know how cayenne makes your mouth feel hot and make you sweat all over? That’s your body trying to cool you off and the only way to trigger your sweat glands is if your body starts burning fat for heat. The premium brand makes us smile but it’s a gem in this rough of a formula.
- Dendrobium extract is a really bad ingredient. The only thing it’s good for is being an anti-inflammatory ingredient. On top of that, dendrobine is actually a convulsant and might just promote seizures.
- Hordenine is BPEA’s best friend as it can act as a MAO inhibitor. MAO stands for Monoamine Oxidase and this is a substance that destroys BPEA just before it reaches your brain. Adding Hordenine in the mix means the effects of BPEA should last much longer than its dosage will allow.
- Yohimbine is your small but terrible fat burning ingredient as it’s capable of tweaking your fat burning hormones to get your metabolic rate up even in really small doses.
- Higenamine is a so-so fat burner at most and works more or less like L-Carnitine when it comes to boosting thermo.
- Synephrine is caffeine’s partner in fat burning crime although we doubt it can work the way it’s supposed to work given its puny dose in the blend.
- Huperzine A enhances brain chemicals and mental energy and works in the tiniest of doses.
MELT has a few yet concerning issues we need to address. The first one being the dosage allotted per capsule. One capsule is equivalent to a little over 700 mg and while that’s usually not much of a problem, the fact that 250 mg of it goes to caffeine is.
Seriously, you got 11 ingredients in your formula and more than a third goes to one ingredient? Don’t get us wrong, we love caffeine but this much in one serving not only hinders the other ingredients from having more dosage but it also prevents the user from doubling the dosage for potency.
It’s even ironic for LMNITRX to market MELT as a “no jitter” supplement despite bringing that much caffeine into the table. At 250 mg a pop, and with no real anti-jitter ingredient in sight, we have to question whoever Even if MELT is marketed towards professional athletes, we’re pretty sure even they will think twice before taking more than one capsule a day.
And it just snowballs from there. The rest of the ingredients, no matter how great, will not have that much of an impact thanks to a less than desirable dose for each of them.
Choline bitartrate is already weak enough but that dosage is just adding insult to injury. L-Carnitine needs at least 500 mg to work and we’re not sure if it even has 200 mg thanks to MELT’s prop blend. Capsimax, Yohimbine, Huperzine A, BPEA and Hordenine are all great additions for fat burning and that might just have enough dosing to work but it’s a long stretch and we’re stretching because these ingredients can work well even in reduced dosages. Synephrine is another ingredient worth adding but we cry at the small dosing it most likely has and makes it as useful as a bucket of apples.
In our opinion, MELT could’ve done itself a favor by removing Higenamine and Dendrobium extract. Higenamine can do what L-Carnitine does but the dose is really too small to be of any use here and Dendrobium is not only a waste of space here but might also cause seizures. Like why the heck are companies still using this in their weight loss products?!
We really don’t know how to make sense of this entire formula. On one side, it’s a decent energy booster that might have some fat burning benefits but on the other, it’s a poorly designed burner-nootropic stack. To make it worse, the whole company boasts at the fact that it’s founded by a team of athletes. Athletes! Not a bunch of schmucks who have no idea how to make a decent stack but actual pros who know their stuff and for some reason couldn’t pull it together in MELT.
So no, they won’t be ending obesity anytime soon but they will get a lot of fat people buzzed.
LMNITRX MELT Benefits
The only clear benefit, one that we’re sure works, is the energy boost you’ll get in one capsule. Then again, if you’re after something that can perk you up, why bother with a fat burner when you can just have a good cup of coffee or two? Fat burning takes a backseat and the nootropic function is in the trunk for MELT and we can only really blame the people behind the mess they call a formula.
Who Takes It?
LMNITRX is hell bent on fighting obesity but their website seems to be catered more towards athletes judging by the models they use. We also think this product will appeal to those who need their morning pick me up but can’t drink coffee for some reason and also like the idea of getting a mild fat burning effect on the side.
Any Side Effects?
By now the side effects are obvious. We’re talking about jitters, crashing, and maybe even anxiety. If your body is not used to high amounts of caffeine, lack of sleep could be an issue. Some users say taking two a day can make you nauseous and this could be due to too much caffeine.

Final Word on LMNITRX MELT
We probably sound like a broken record but we can’t really wrap our mind around the fact that this supplement is made by certified athletes. Past that, we can only really depend on its energy-boosting function and that’s about the only commendable thing in this formula. Fat burning isn’t as highlighted here as we expect from other supplements which is a disappointing thought since the fat burning part is the reason people buy MELT in the first place.
