Today we are discussing the pros and cons of BPI Sports B4, and to determine if it can help you burn fat or not. According to the manufacturer, BPI Sports, BPI Sports B4 is a fat burning and weight management formula that can help you focus during training sessions, elevate mood and sensory functions of your body, while maintaining energy levels and promoting a rapid action metabolism. It can also help in enhancing endurance and stamina.
As par the manufacturer, this product is the product of years of research, however they have failed to mention or reference these “researches” on their official website. The manufacturer also claims that BPI Sports B4 uses several mechanisms to burn fat quickly through adipose tissue regulation, dopamine regulation and CNS stimulant properties. Not only can it improve your physical abilities, but it can also improve cognitive and mental functions.
The manufacturing company, BPI Sports, is relatively a new one. Although they have been around for quite some years, they still have to create a loyal fan following or an established reputation for themselves. BPI Sports B4 claims to enhance your performance during workouts and help you burn fat and lose weight quickly. However, there is no clinical evidence that BPI Sports B4 promotes weight loss and it has not been tested for safety, so anyone interested in using these supplements have to do so on their own risk! Many customer reviews do mention that it has helped them lose weight, but at the expense of several side effects, and the jury is still out on whether it is worth it.
The Secret Formula
Here are the ingredients of BPI Sports B4 and as you can see, they are not very different from most of the ingredients listed on most fat burning supplements.
- Dendrobium Nobile
- Canavalia Gladiata
- Psoralea Corylifolia
- Sophora Japonica
Other ingredients of BPI Sports B4 are red wine concentrate and a kind of bark, called Yohimbe. One of the positive things is that all of these ingredients are natural and therefore technically safe to use. However, the lack of clinical studies makes us worried if that is the case.
BPI Sports B4 contains 30 mg of niacin, which is known for its ability to burn body fat quickly and reducing cholesterol levels. Other benefits of BPI Sports B4 are:
- Some ingredients in BPI Sports B4 have been proven in the past for their fat burning capabilities
- Many customer feedbacks say that it has helped them lose weight (but with severe side effects)
- It is designed to improve mental and physical performance
- The dosage of one capsule is quite convenient than other supplements
- It helps develop a muscle/mind connection, assisting you to train harder, longer and more effectively.
- It is a CNS stimulator, dopamine modulator and adoptive tissue regulator.
Take one BPI Sports B4 dose, at least 20-30 minutes before a training session and on non-workout days, take one dose to facilitate your body’s fat burning capabilities. Users are advised to not exceed the dosage amount, as it will not maximize the benefits, rather it can be dangerous to the health.
Potential Side Effects
Like other fat burning supplements, BPI Sports B4 is unsuitable for women who are pregnant, are thinking of conceiving or are nursing. The manufacturers also recommend the users to consult their doctors, if they are on a special medication or are undergoing treatment for any disease.
One of the major drawbacks of consuming so much caffeine in a day is, that it can cause
- Increase in blood pressure and heartbeat
- Insomnia and sleeping problems
Other potential side effects of this fat burning supplement are:
- Severe headaches
- Shortness of breathe
- Flushing or fainting
- Tingling of skin
- Skin reddening and rashes
Users can also feel a sensation of heat, if they take this supplement on an empty stomach. Most users complained that when they took BPI Sports B4, they suffered from stomach problems and severe diarrhea, which is unheard of in fat burning supplements. There is a lot of warnings and “recommendations” that come hand in hand with their dosage instruction, which makes you wonder what it is really made of. BPI Sports B4 contains heavy dosage of caffeine, due to which users are advised not to take BPI Sports B4 supplements with excessive tea, coffee, any dietary supplements, and any medications, which contain caffeine or phenylephrine or synephrine. One thing, that will make any experienced athlete or muscle builder wary of BPI Sports B4, is that there are no clinical researches or studies backing the company’s claims.
Many companies use the mainstream fat burning ingredients like caffeine, however, BPI Sports doesn’t offer its user any clinical proof of how its ingredients are supposed to burn fat. Moreover, the amount, in which the ingredients are present in the formula, is not mentioned, which makes us wary. If you don’t know how much of every compound you are consuming, you will be unable to track your goals.
Another thing, which made us pause, is that BPI Sports B4 doesn’t state that how it works. Although the marketing of BPI Sports B4 supplements is enticing, it seems riskier than any other fat burning products in the market.
