Shredz Fat Burner for Women is one of several supplements produced in the US by Shredz and the product is certainly marketed with some big promises:
“Put down the magazine and become your own centerfold. SHREDZ Supplements specifically designed a thermogenic capsule formulated to help get you the body, looks, and attitude for your everyday catwalk.”
The Shredz marketing team can certainly talk the talk, but many customers state the product fails to walk the walk and some unhappy Shredz users are convinced the company is placing fake reviews that suggest the product is better than it is. If they are they won’t be the first, but let’s give Shredz the benefit of the doubt for now, dig a little deeper, and see if how well the product stands up to the marketing hype.

What is Shredz Fat Burner for Women and how does it Work?
Shredz Fat Burner for Women has been designed specifically for women who have a regular training regimen. The capsules are designed to step-up the metabolism and encourage the body to burn existing body fat. If the capsules achieve this the extra calories released from the fat will provide an energy boost that should then fuel higher intensity workouts.
Looking at the list of ingredients fails to shed much light on how powerful the blend is likely to be because many of the ingredients are incorporated in a proprietary blend and specific inclusion rates are unknown.
Each capsule contains:
- Choline (100mg)
- Vitamin B7 (100mg)
- Vitamin B5 (20mg)
B vitamins are important to a healthy metabolism, and choline can encourage the fat burning process, but the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine states the average female body requires 425mg of choline a day, so the amount included here is likely to be insufficient. It is also worth noting the Nutros.com nutrition database states choline is a poor second to many alternative fat burners such as green tea.
The proprietary blend accounts for 934mg of the capsule content and contains the following ingredients:
- Alpha Lipolic Acid
- Acetyl L-Carnitine
- Synephrine HCL
- Guggulsterones 99% Pure E&Z
- Yohimbine HCL
- Cayenne Pepper Extract
- Green Tea Extract >98%
- Caffeine Anhydrous
According to the Shredz website four ingredients are of particular importance so we’ll concentrate on those.
|Ingredient||Shredz Says||How the claims Pan Out|
|Yohimbine||Increases your metabolism and will burn fat throughout the day.||Often touted as a fat burner. There is little evidence to support such claims and yohimbine is a dangerous ingredient that has been linked to dangerous side effects including heart attacks and strokes.|
|Alpha Lipoic Acid||An antioxidant that can be vital to cellular energy production, and may help neutralize the damage caused by free radicals.||Such results are unlikely, but Alpha Lipoic Acid can be useful for treating some diabetes symptoms.|
|Gugglesterones||Activates lipolytic enzymes and increases T3 levels. Increasing t3 levels speeds up metabolism and aids in fat loss.||A plant sterol extract from the guggul tree. Some tests show the ingredient can produce ‘modest’ weight loss if combined with phosphate, hydroxycitric acid, and L-tyrosine; none of which are included here.|
|Acetyl L-Carnitine||Natural energy, burns fat, improves heart and brain function.||Some studies suggest the ingredient can improve mental functions and help reduce feeling of fatigue, but there is no evidence to support any fat burning claims.|
The blend contains a couple of worthwhile ingredients such as green tea and cayenne, but the lack of inclusion rates makes it impossible to say if enough is included and the inclusion of a dangerous ingredient like Yohimbine is a real cause for concern, as is Synephrine, because the ingredient has also been linked to cardiovascular issues.
- If you workout in the AM: Take one capsule pre-workout with breakfast followed by one capsule in the afternoon.
- If you workout in the PM: Take one capsule with breakfast followed by one capsule pre-workout.
This is a little confusing because it seems unlikely that too many people will workout seven days a week and no advice is offered about dosage on non-workout days.
Many customer state the product let them down, but the majority of reviewers speak in glowing terms.
An average negative response reads:
And a more positive recation:
But there is some question about the validity the level of positive reviews and several dissatisfied customers have expressed concerns. One customer writes:
Side Effects & Health Issues
Shredz Fat Burner for Women contains two dangerous ingredients so all potential users are advised to seek medical advice prior to commencing supplementation.
A one month supply of capsules costs $60 from the Shredz website. The Capsules can also be purchased from Amazon for a much more reasonable $45. The GNC price is usually somewhere between the two.
There is no money back guarantee.
The Bottom Line
Shredz Fat Burner for Women is not a recommended product. It is possible that the blend may provide some level of fat burning to some users, but the inclusion of unknown quantities of dangerous ingredients presents too many risks for use of the product to be endorsed. Many safer options are available. Consumers are advised to look elsewhere.
