Shred JYM vs. QuadraLean. Two big fat burners raring to go at each other’s throats with what they think is the perfect formula.
Shred JYM is the old school fat burner that provides a traditional yet unquestionable approach to shredding fat off your body. It does so with hot ingredients many veterans in the barbell-sphere recognize and acknowledge as legit.
QuadraLean, on the other hand, offers a new approach in an attempt to revolutionize the fat burning industry and that’s by primarily limiting your food (and therefore fat) intake.
Active vs Passive. One burns fat like a hot knife thru butter while the other aims to prevent fat from stacking up. They both say the overused lines but we’re not swayed by hype-talk. Which one of these epic fat burners outburns the other?
Let’s find out…

Round 1: Formulas
Shred JYM will make you sweat the fat out
Shred JYM starts the round with Acetyl-L-Carnitine or ALCAR, a multi-tasking ingredient capable of boosting metabolism and support physical performance and even post-workout recovery. It also has this thing that burns fat inside cells. L-Tyrosine for alertness and extra energy follows suit.
Shred JYM then shotguns us with some of our best fat burning ingredients: Standardized Green Tea Extract, Caffeine, and Cayenne as Capsimax. To cap it all off is Synephrine as Advantra-Z, a top of the line brand for this seriously potent adrenaline booster and fat burner.
As a bonus, Synephrine and Caffeine work in synergy which means they’ll be able to boost each other’s fat burning prowess to new heights!
If traditional was a fat burner, Shred JYM is definitely fit for the role.
QuadraLean is all about keeping food away from you
QuadraLean’s game changing formula starts with Conjugated Linoleic Acid as Clarinol, an ingredient known to trigger thermogenesis, mitigates hunger, and boosts your metabolism. Some even value it as a supplement for an ideal body composition and by ideal we mean shredded, bro.
Garcinia Cambogia is our #3 fat burner and with good reason. It regulates appetite, block the conversion of carbs to fat, and transform fat into energy. All in one amazing ingredient. To compliment it is Raspberry Ketones, an organic compound that promotes fat breakdown and further enhance metabolism.
Then we have the carnitine blend made up of ALCAR, Propionyl-L-Carnitine, and Carnitine Tartrate, amino acids produced by the body to promote cellular energy thru fatty acid breakdown. If it’s too complicated, let’s make it simpler: it shoves fat inside our cells to use it as fire wood, badda bing badda boom! Quadralean used three forms which suggests a possible inter-ingredient synergy that usually prolongs the overall effect.
All in all, Quadralean’s concept is centered around preventing you from eating too much while it burns up what you previously stored.
In conclusion of the first round, both supplements seem to know what they’re doing and what they can do for you and to pick the winner is to pick the one supplement which will burn you more fat for your buck.
That supplement is Shred JYM. It’s hard to contest a time-tested synephrine-caffeine stack coupled with plenty of other potent fat burners. QuadraLean focused on reducing the amount of food more than burning what’s already inside and that’s a good way to look at fat burning on its own.
Round 1… Shred JYM Wins.
Round 2: Dosages
Dosing is an important aspect of knowing whether a super ingredient will actually work once we take it and judging by the numbers both fat burners show, well this going to be a tough call.
Shred JYM has an awesome job at keeping the doses at working levels with Green Tea, Caffeine, Cayenne, and Synephrine. Tyrosine is usually taken at 500 mg and hits the minimum when you consider the form. Let’s not forget Shred JYM’s ALCAR with a dose that’s on-point.
How about QuadraLean? They got Garcinia and Raspberry Ketones decently but we can’t say for certain when it comes to CLA and its Carnitine blend. First, Clarinol openly suggests a minimum dose of at least 1.7 g and while we do appreciate the premium brand, we can’t say 500 mg is good enough.
It’s the same with the Carnitines, bro. You can put all sorts of ingredients in one blend but if the total weight of that blend ain’t enough for them then it ain’t enough. Giving 500 mg to three dose-hungry ingredients is like throwing a small chicken to feed three hungry wolves.
No questions here. Shred JYM takes the cake again!
Round 2… Shred JYM Wins.
Round 3: Ingredient Quality
Ingredient quality means offering the best forms for maximum absorption and potency and we’re happy to say both fat burners didn’t rip us off with cheap knock offs for the most part.
Shred JYM mostly has the best forms of potent ingredients specially with standardized Green Tea Extract, Cayenne as Capsimax, and Synephrine as Advantra-Z. Too bad they forgot to up the ante with plain old Tyrosine. We always prefer it as NALT if you want to maximize it as a nootropic. That’s the form the big boys use to supercharge brainpower.
QuadraLean only has CLA as Clarinol not to mention they didn’t even bother to standardized Garcinia Cambogia.
It’s pretty obvious Shred JYM won this round. No contest.
Round 3… Shred JYM Wins.
Round 4: Price
|1 Bottle (60-servings)||$35.46||1 Bottle (30-servings)||$34.99|
|Price Per Capsule||$0.15||Price Per Capsule||$0.23|
|Price Per Serving||$0.59||Price Per Serving||$0.69|
Round 4… Shred JYM Wins.
Round 5: JUDGEMENT
If you look at our reviews, you can tell why this battle ended the way it did. Both are refined fat-burning stacks, but Shred JYM has a really good lead over QuadraLean:
- We’re talking 4.5 (Shred JYM) vs. 4.1 (QuadraLean) out of 5 stars.
Two amazing fat burners worthy to be part of the Best 5 Fat Burning Supplements.
Scores are good but what do you want in a fat burner? Do you want something active or something passive? Do you like or hate stimulants?
Whichever you choose, what matters is what you want in the end and no review site can ever change that.
In our case, we have to look at the bigger picture and to us Shred JYM fits squarely into our portrait. QuadraLean is actually a pretty decent choice but became lackluster when compared to Shred JYM hence this conclusion.
In the Shred JYM vs. QuadraLean fight, the winner is…
