Beast Sports make some big claims for their Amphetalean powder, stating it can boost energy levels, stimulate fat burning, and increase concentration levels and mental alertness. If you listen to Beast, Amphetalean is as effective as a pre-workout formulation as it is for weight loss.
The formulation may very well offer some level of benefit in both departments, but it contains prescription only drugs and the Australian Government are so concerned about the health risks its use may involve they have made it illegal to sell the supplement anywhere in Australia.
What is Amphetalean and how does it Work?
Amphetalean is a powder designed to be mixed with water and taken as a dietary supplement.
Promised benefits include:
- Fat burning
- Increased energy
- Appetite suppression
- Improved clarity and focus
Appetite suppressants can be useful for helping to lower the daily calorie intake. Fat burners are used to trigger the fat burning process. If Amphetalean really can deliver these benefits it offers obvious advantages to anyone who wishes to lose weight.
The fat burning process releases calories (from stored body fat). The released calories are then available for use and can provide a natural boost to flagging energy levels. Needless to say, taken prior to training, a good fat burner can help fuel more intense workouts.
Any formulation that can provide improved levels of clarity and focus can also be useful for ensuring enhanced training sessions, so in theory it all sounds very good, it’s just a great pity Beast made such bad choices when choosing which ingredients to use.
Amphetalean Key Ingredients
Each (5g) scoop provides:
- Vitamin B1 (60mg)
- Niacin (10mg)
- Calcium (63mg)
Nothing too frighting there—just a couple of vitamins and a mineral. Vitamin B1 and Niacin may help speed up the metabolism and provide some of the promised mental focus. Calcium probably adds little of particular value, but has an alleged fat burning ability.
The main ingredients are used in a proprietary blend, but there is some confusion as to what the Amphetalean Thermogenic Matrix contains.
Let’s look at three example lists of ingredients, taken from three different suppliers:
|Granulated Phenylethylamine Blend (Phenylethylamine HCl, Caffeine Anhydrous, Magnesium Stearate), DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol), Raspberry Ketones (Razberi-K™), Gingko Biloba (leaf extract), Evodia Rutaecarpa (Thermodiamine™), Hordenine, Indian Snake Root, cAMP (cyclic adenosine-3′-5′-monophosphate).||[Beta-PHenylethylamine HCl, Caffeine Anhydrous, DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol Bitartrate), Raspberry Ketones (Razberi-K), Gingko Bioloba (leaf), Rauvolfia Canescens L, Evodia Rutacarpae (Thermodiamine), Hordenine, cAMP (cyclic adenosine-3’-5’-monophosphate)]||Choline Bitartrate, Phenylethylalamine HCl, Coffea Robusta (bean), Nelumbo Nucifera (seed), Raspberry Ketones (Razberi-K), Ginkgo Biloba Extract (leaf), Evodia Rutaecarpa Extract 10% Evodiamine, N,N-Dimethyl-Tyramine, cAMP (Cyclic Adenosine-3′-5′-Monophosphate)|
The fact that more than one version of the blend appears to be available should in itself be enough to scream “Stay away!” and it is intresting to note that the Beast Sports website provides no information about the product at all.
Raspberry Ketones appears in all versions and is undoubtedly a safe and efficient weight loss provider (if included in sufficient quantity), but many of the other ingredients present more problems than they are worth.
The two ingredients the Australian government is particularly worried about are:
- Yohimbine (alpha-yohimbine, Indian snake root)
- Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE)
Both substances have dangerous qualities that require close monitoring by a doctor so they are deemed suitable for prescription use only.
Amphetalean Customer Feedback
Some users appear to get away with using the formulation without experiencing any negative issues.
But other users have not been so lucky:
Amphetalean Side Effects
Possible side effects are many and varied and could range from jitters and headache to heart attack and stroke.
A statement issued by the Australian Government Department of Health Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) reads:
There does not appear to be a money back guarantee.
Beast Sports Amphetalean is not a recommended product.
It cannot be denied that the formulation may offer some benefits, but many safer options can provide the same or better benefits so there is no need for anyone to take unnecessary gambles with their wellbeing in order to lose a few pounds or train a little harder. Amphetalean is banned in Australia for a reason—it may endanger the user’s health.
Where to Buy Amphetalean
Amphetalean can be purchased from a number of online stores, but the TGA is working with the Customs and Border Protection Services to ensure no further shipments of Beast Amphetalean powder gain entry into Australia.
