Fat burners UK versions tend to be under-powered today. The reason behind this is strict rules and regulation to what ingredients can be used. Supplements are getting banned on a near monthly basis. Companies are working hard to find alternative and safer ingredients to use but the market doesn’t have the big hitters it once had, such as ephedrine.
What exactly happened?
In 2004, the FDA created a ban on ephedrine marketed for reasons other than asthma, colds, allergies, other disease, or traditional Asian use. A few years went by of fighting the case that in moderate dosages, ephedrine wasn’t dangerous. It wasn’t until 2006 ephedrine become banned and a lot harder to get hold of over the counter. Canada led the way with their restrictions in 2002 and the UK later joined by making it illegal to sell over the counter, as a fat burner.
DNP has caused deaths in the UK, as much as 5 in the last 3 years. DNP is not a drug to be messed with, it’s a lot more potent than ephedrine and claims it can increase metabolism by up to 30%. This would cause a surge in body temperature and if you overdose, it may be fatal. DNP was banned in 1938 due to severe side effects, over 77 years ago!
In 2002 a well-known supplement “guru” was selling DNP online as a fat loss pill. This resulted in a death. The investigation went on and found two people accountable for mis-leading people to thinking that this fat loss pill was safe. DNP is not illegal in the UK but it’s one of the most dangerous drugs out there, it’s for industrial purposes, not for human consumption.
2015 and beyond
As you can see, the supplement industry in general can be a dangerous place if you do order from shady websites/companies. It’s a shame that some safe and effective ingredients are banned due to overdosing on them and far exceeding recommended dosages. Are there any fat burners on the market today that actually work?

Dieting is never easy. Being in a caloric deficit takes its toll on the mind and body. Dieting tends to break people down until they break and consume junk food. They immediately regret the decision but the feel-good factor of junk food is too hard to resist. This is why a fat burner needs to give you a feel good factor. Feeling good whilst dieting can help you overcome the cravings and help you push through to that well-earned cheat meal.
It gets better:
5-HTP is an amino acid that does exactly what we want. It helps increase serotonin a brain chemical which regulates our sleep, raises our pain threshold, and elevates our mood. 5-HTP is safe, legal and effective.
A fat burner needs to give you energy. A caloric deficit will make you hungry, moody and lethargic. It’s important to choose a fat burner that can give you a clean and sustained release of energy. Caffeine is the go to ingredient here. It’s safe, consumed world-wide and also has fat burning benefits. Caffeine Anhydrous is a popular form of caffeine used in fat loss supplements and can help you stay alert, energised and boost fat burning. When combined with green tea extract the results are amplified. An easy go to choice here is a green-tea and caffeine combo. A green tea-caffeine mixture improves weight maintenance, through thermogenesis, fat oxidation, and sparing fat free mass. Perfect!
This may come as a surprise on the list but enhancing absorption can have dramatic results. You can mix all the best ingredients available but if the bio-availability is poor they won’t produce their desired effects.

This makes the supplement it’s being used in more effective.
