Created by a company known as MRI, 8-FX claims that you can attack the reasons why you gain fat. They claim that 8-FX will target metabolism, fat oxidation, the thyroid health, focus, energy, mood, thermogenic activity, and cAMP breakdown all in one. In short, it will address the 8 reasons why you have trouble losing weight, hence the name. They claim that you will see greater weight loss results than you have ever seen before without all the hassle of a lesser product.
So How Does 8-FX Work?
Like so many others, 8-FX relies largely on caffeine. While caffeine comes with side effects frankly speaking, it only temporarily burns fat or produces a thermogenic effect in the body. This requires at least 400mg of each type of caffeine you happen to use, and they don’t bother using this. Based on ingredients alone, 8-FX is just like any other product. And when you consider the small and ineffective amounts, you could say the same thing.
Chromium -suggested to control blood sugar. But it has only been positively proven in athletes. All other studies have actually failed.
Avena Sativa -thought to be a muscle builder
Caffeine -caffeine anhydrous can burn fat and create a temporary thermogenic effect. However, it requires at least 400mg, they have 50mg.
DMAE -a powerful brain improving antioxidant. It does not promote weight loss.
Coleus forskohlii -known as the active component forskolin, it is thought to improve your muscle building.
Raspberry ketones -studied in rats, it has been shown to help people to slow weight gain or even promote weight loss with a high fat diet. However, it has only been tested by one group of potentially biased researchers in rats
Advantra-z -this form of synephrine is patented. They suggest it as an alternative to ephedra burning fat, increasing metabolism, and otherwise. But they don’t disclose the proper amount.
Green tea -the most popular fat burner out there, green tea requires at least 400mg. It’s in a proprietary blend with other ingredients that isn’t even 400mg in total. This being said, green tea can only promote a limited amount of weight loss in the first place
Yohimbine -a natural sexual stimulant in men, yohimbine has been proven to cause heart attack, stroke, renal failure, and severe kidney damage. But it has not been actually proven in weight loss at all.
Japanese knotweed extract -known for antioxidants, they claim it will promote a caffeine free thermogenic effect. But it will not necessarily work with proven effects.
