Shred JYM vs. Hyper SHRED are two fat-burners bearing the same SHRED title. Both claim to shred fat off your body but they vastly differ in approach…. kind of like two employees vying for a promotion.
Shred JYM is that guy who comes to work with the same old clothes day-in and day-out, sometimes you wonder if his hair ever gets combed too. But he works hard and has done a lot to get where he is right now. The old guys in the office know this very well.
As if in direct contrast, HYPER SHRED is that guy you hate because everyone likes him for no good reason. He’s charming, your boss likes him, office girls flirt with him, and he’s always the guy who gets to host the company events because he makes a pretty good poster boy. He has a pretty decent resume but some of his colleagues think he’s all talk and no action.
Looks vs Personality. Form vs Function. Which fat burner approach shreds more fat? Let’s find out!

Round 1: Formulas
Shred JYM is simple and straight to the point.
Shred JYM believes in KISS. No, not the metal band with black and white make-up and tongues sticking out. KISS means Keep It Simple Stupid, or to make sure you’re focused on one goal to maximize efficiency. With just six ingredients, you can’t get any KISSable than this.
Shred JYM starts strong with ALCAR, an ingredient known to boost metabolism, gym performance, and recovery. L-Tyrosine is mainly for mental energy and alertness, especially in the face of stress. But we want it as NALT, though. That’s the form used by the most powerful brain-boosters out there.
What better way to blast fat to smithereens than to have standardized Green Tea Extract, Caffeine, and Cayenne as the premium Capsimax in one hot blend? These three belong to the upper echelons of fat burning and naturally made out best fat burners list.
Then we have Shred JYM’s wildcard, Synephrine. Potent, synergistic, and comes in the premium form of Advantra-Z. Don’t you worry about so-called dangers; Advantra-Z is quite safe.
HYPER SHRED takes the word “shred” onto a whole new level.
HYPER SHRED thinks differently as it believes dressing for the part is just as important as function if not more. And boy, does HYPER SHRED look good. Sporting plenty of premium ingredients and fancy blend names (and a really noticeable red bottle), you can never spell sophisticated without thinking if HYPER SHRED.
HYPER SHRED looks awesome on paper specially with three fancy blends.
THERMODYNAMIC INTERFUSION sounds like it came from a Star Trek film but it’s real and it’s made of super awesome ingredients: Caffeine, Synephrine as Advantra-Z, Red Pepper as Capsimax, and Black Pepper as BioPerine.
Caffeine works amazingly with Synephrine while Red Pepper makes sure the fire they produce is hotter and lasts longer. Black Pepper in the form of BioPerine makes sure your body absorbs all the ingredients in this supplement efficiently. This is probably HYPER SHRED’s best blend and, given enough dosage, can work as a standalone.
ACTI-TROPIC COMPLEX is their nootropic blend. First up is standardized standardized Bacopa which ranks as #3 best nootropic. DL-Phenylalanine is more of a mood and focus enhancer while Huperzine-A is an excellent choice for mental energy and brain cell regeneration.
As much as we’re sure about the first two blends, MIMETIC COMPOSITE confuses us a bit since we’re not sure why it’s there based on its ingredients: Banaba Leaf Extract in the form of GlucoHelp is the perfect ingredient when it comes to blood sugar balance and Chromium Chloride also helps balance blood sugar but the form we’re looking for is Picolinate as Chloride is poorly absorbed.
Both formulas look different but the purpose is the same: to burn fat and loads of it.
These two both have amazing ingredients but we can only really pick one and this round goes to Shred JYM. There’s something to like about simple formulations specially if they’re all working towards one goal. HYPER SHRED had good ingredient choices but it’s not as focused on fat burning compared to Shred JYM.
Round 1… Shred JYM Wins.
Round 2: Dosages
Only Shred JYM avoided the dreaded Proprietary Blend labeling so kudos to him. If we want to assess this properly, we’ll have to consider how their fat burning compounds work.
Shred JYM readily exploits the serving size by adding 500 mg of standardized Green Tea Extract, 200 mg of Caffeine, 50 mg of Cayenne, and 20 mg of Synephrine. These dosages are effective as far as fat-burning is concerned. Let’s not forget the 1.5 g ALCAR in the mix.
As for HYPER SHRED, we know they have 180 mg of caffeine and if that’s their biggest ingredient then it stands to say everything else falls below that number. What we can say is they probably got Synephrine, Red Pepper, and Black Pepper correct since those ingredients are in their premium form and are therefore allowed to work in small yet concentrated doses.
When you look at it in their context, both have good dosage but when put against each other the answer is as clear as day. Shred JYM definitely takes this one by a mile.
Round 2… Shred JYM Wins.
Round 3: Ingredient Quality
Both Shred JYM and HYPER SHRED offer premium ingredients in their list. Sometimes the quality of ingredients can offset low doses too so there’s hope for HYPER SHRED in this round but let’s start with Shred JYM first.
What made Shred JYM awesome are its standardized Green Tea Extract and premium Cayenne and Synephrine brands. What made it fail is its poor choice of Tyrosine form.
As for HYPER SHRED, its winners include premium ingredients for Synephrine, Red Pepper, and Black Pepper. It also has standardized Bacopa and, for what it’s worth, GlucoHelp. We’re fine with these but Bacopa being standardized to a mere 20% is just laughable.
Its main derps encompass its B-vitamins as well as Chromium Chloride. Vitamins aren’t even that expensive compared to their ingredients yet their B-Vitamins got the short end of the stick too. Finally, Chromium in that form won’t work at all thanks to both dosage and quality. Even if they cram the whole pill with BioPerine, clinical dosages are clinical dosages bro.
While Hyper SHRED does have the quantity of quality ingredients, it’s tough to believe how if it will ever function as whole. If you think about it, Shred JYM’s Tyrosine flaw isn’t really that bad when you look at HYPER SHRED so this one definitely goes to Shred JYM.
Round 3… Shred JYM Wins.
Round 4: Price
|Shred JYM||VS.||HYPER SHRED|
|1 Bottle (60-day supply)||$35.46||1 Bottle (90-day supply)||$31.97|
|Price Per Capsule||$0.15||Price Per Capsule||$0.36|
|Price Per Serving||$0.59||Price Per Serving||$0.36|
Round 4… HYPER SHRED Wins.
Round 5: JUDGEMENT
It’s almost a landslide. Shred JYM winning on almost all counts save for price and our ratings tell the same story.
- We’re talking 4.5 (Shred JYM) vs. 3.7 (HYPER SHRED) out of 5 stars.
That gap is wider than your lats will ever get bro.
The only good thing about HYPER SHRED is it’s cheap so if your budget isn’t working out for you then HYPER SHRED is a pretty decent fat burner. It’s good for 90 days and you can always take more provided you know what you’re doing.
As far as quality and efficiency is concerned, though, Shred JYM definitely takes the cake. Shred JYM is definitely worth the higher price bro.
Going back to our employees, if looks could kill, the fashionable guy would be a cold-blooded murderer. Too bad it’s not about how you dress to work but how you actually perform at work and the guy with the crazy hair definitely deserves that promotion.
In the Shred Jym vs. HYPER SHRED fight, the winner by a WIDE MARGINE is…
