The Secret Formula
Shred Matrix contains a long list of ingredients but the most important ones are discussed below.
- Anhydrous Caffeine, which is a powdered form of caffeine believed to increase alertness, exercise performance and improve mood.
- Green tea extract boosts metabolism and helps with fat loss.
- Capsimax is an extract from cayenne powder that is used to oxidize fat and increase energy levels.
- Panax Ginseng root that improves the immune system and cognitive abilities, and decreases fatigue.
- Acetyl-L-Carnitine that enhances the fat burning process of the body and improves mental focus.
- Bearberry extract that is used as a diuretic to reduce bladder inflammation, treat urinary tract infections and help fight water retention in the body.
It also consists of six important and major compounds like Zinc, Chromium, Biotin, Pantothenic acid, Niacin and Magnesium.
A total of six capsules have to be consumed in a day; three capsules half an hour before breakfast with 8 ounces of water, and three capsules half an hour before lunch. Accordingly, one must drink a lot of water during the day usually 8 pints and avoid taking the tablets a few hours before going to bed at night.
Potential Side Effects
It can be observed that the product contains a lot of stimulants that can cause uneasiness, agitation, and palpitation. Probably that’s why the manufacturer cautions users to avoid consuming the capsules before sleeping at night. Many people have reported side effects of shred matrix such as:
- A ‘choking’ feeling
- Pain in the chest
- A nauseous feeling often resulting in vomiting
- Intense abdominal pain
- Increase in the heartbeat and/or erratic heartbeats
On top of that, the product has an ingredient called Yohimbe that has been banned in many countries like Australia. Yohimbe is said to cause anxiety, fear, paranoia, and panic attacks.Additionally, there is no money back guarantee on the product by the company and the claims of the product have not been proved scientifically.
Yes, shred matrix packs a punch when it comes to burning excess fat, but it has been designed specifically for the bodybuilder in mind. It contains more ingredients than an average fat loss supplement; however there is no mention of the amounts of any of the ingredients, which makes it difficult to determine how they would react with the body and what their side effects might be.
Many of the reviews available on the different health websites claim that this product is more suitable for bodybuilders as it increases the energy and stamina during a workout, but does little to help promote weight loss. If you are looking for an effective fat burner and you aren’t a professional bodybuilder, then this product is not the right one for you.
