Most fat burners on the market are full of caffeine or other stimulants, and very little of the actual ingredients that will help you lose weight and burn fat. Sure, the ingredients SOUND great, but when you find out the amounts they use and how much is needed to help you burn fat, you’ll see that they are ineffective at best.
How do fat burners work?
Fat Burners work in 2 ways:
- by helping you feel full
- by increasing your metabolic rate (thermogenesis)
After a couple of days of dieting and depriving yourself of things you used to eat, your body will begin to have cravings. Those cravings can derail your progress. Taking a fat burner supplement with effective craving control and the ability to help you feel fuller faster, you can continue to see progress during those tough restrictive days, or on any day you want to boost your diet. Be sure your supplement contains enough of the important ingredients to be effective, so you’re actually seeing the results you want.
Fat burners also work by increasing your metabolic rate. This is the amount of energy your body burns throughout your day. By increasing your metabolic rate, you can lose weight faster by burning more calories. This works by forcing your cells to burn carbs and fat for energy.
Some fat burners use Ephedrine (also called bitter orange extract) to help support fat loss. Unfortunately for most, ephedrine and synephrine have negative side effects, such as blood pressure increases, higher pulse rate, anxiety and cardiovascular distress. These are NOT ingredients you should accept from your fat burners!
Life Nation’s Fat Burners for Men and Women are scientifically formulated to give you the best, natural results, without causing harmful effects. We include in every capsule:

Coleus Forskohlii should not be used in the place of medication, and as with any supplement, you should check with your doctor first before using it.
How does Forslean® work?
Forslean® works by increasing cAMP levels in your body, which bind to the receptors inside the cells to produce a message to your brain to increase your body’s thermogenic response to food, increase your body’s basic metabolic rate, and increase utilization of body fat.[i] Forslean® also leads to subsequent activation of the protein Kinase. Kinase has been shown to activate the hormone-sensitive Lipase that is involved in the breakdown of triglycerides, known as the building blocks of fatty tissue.
Is Forslean® safe?
In 7 clinical trials with Forslean®, 250mg of Forslean® divided into two doses each day, participants lost anywhere from 4-9 pounds each after taking it for 12 weeks. The group taking the placebos gained weight during this 12 weeks, while maintaining the same level of fitness and eating plan. None of the participants saw an increase in blood pressure during the study. [ii]

Cayenne Pepper can boost your metabolism by increasing the amount of heat your body produces through thermogenesis, and increase your feeling of fullness. In one study, participants added cayenne pepper with MCT oil during meals and increased their thermogenesis by 50% compared to non-users.[vi] You will build a tolerance to it over time, though, so cycling on and off can be beneficial.
Cayenne Pepper is also shown in many studies to reduce hunger. This is thought to occur through a reduction in the hormone ghrelin, which tells your body to keep eating. In addition, cayenne pepper has other digestive properties that are beneficial for you.
Is it Safe?
Cayenne peppers are generally recognized as safe to eat. Start with a small amount if adding to your food, though, to assess your tolerance, as they are quite hot. If you take blood thinners or high blood pressure medications, check with your doctor before taking cayenne pepper.
