Burn TS Review

Burn TS says it generally makes people feel energized with more focus and mental clarity; no jitters, which are common in other diet supplements. Burn TS does not contain the ephedra; the ingredient banned in many countries. Plus, the caffeine level is about the same as a cup of coffee.

Additionally, it offers a free e-book.

Burn TS is a premium weight-loss supplement. It helps curb appetite, increase energy levels, boost metabolism, and burn calories.

Burn TS Review

 

Burn TS had me at “free e-book, 21 Cheat Foods.” [1] The downloadable, 33-page guide is a fun and quick read with some good (and a few genius) ideas and suggestions. Some I’ve tried and others I have never heard of, so I was jazzed. [2]

From air-popped popcorn with drizzled dark chocolate for 100 calories to a cheat meal like spaghetti and meatballs using homemade marinara, whole grain spaghetti with ground chicken and veggie meatballs, this book was chock full of good ideas. And the spaghetti and meatballs recipe sounds delicious and I know I can tweak it to make it even better (bonus: it’s a low calorie way to eat comfort food.)

But back to the snacks. The truth is, I need night time snacks. I just do. Since this guide gives me healthy options, I’m probably already with this diet. Plus, it’s just one click and you get a free trial: A good start.

But What is Burn TS?

Burn TS is a premium weight-loss supplement. It helps curb appetite, increase energy levels, boost metabolism, and burn calories.

Some of the ingredients in Burn TS are thermogenics, or fat-burning agents. Destroying fat sounds good to me.

It’s made clear that the supplement may not be for everyone. We have talked about this so many times, but it bears repeating: any diet or supplement that is new to you should be discussed with your doctor. We’re all grownups here and know that, but a gentle reminder cannot hurt.

Burn TS Claims

Burn TS says many people report seeing a difference within the first month.

Burn TS doesn't claim to be a magic bullet; it should be combined with a healthy diet (I know I don't need to spell this part out for most, but just in case, we’re talking about fresh, whole foods that include lean proteins, low or no-fat dairy, healthy carbs from whole grains, lots of vegetables, some fruit, and healthy fats), regular exercise, and plenty of water every day.

Remember, they are called supplements for a reason, friends. Burn TS says many people report seeing a difference within the first month. But, as with any weight loss diet, program, or supplement, results vary from person to person.

A couple of rules: only two Burn TS doses per day, 30 minutes before meals. If you forget, don't double-up. Always read the label and if you’re being treated for any disease or illness, check with your doctor. All this bears repeating, which I do in every review though it presumably goes without saying. Just in case this is your first-ever read of a review or first diet/supplement, just like you want to know what you’re eating or drinking, you want to know what’s in a dietary supplement. [3]

Burn TS provides support from weight loss coaches to U.S, U.K, and Australian dieters six days a week; plus anytime via email. Every bottle purchased through the official website is covered by a 120-day money-back guarantee. It costs $94.95/bottle for a 30-day supply, $79.95/bottle for a 60-day supply and $69.95/bottle for a 90-day supply. [4]

Burn TS Ingredients

Meratrim contains a fruit extract and a flower extract, both used as weight loss supplements. ChromeMate helps control blood glucose levels and promotes healthy cholesterol levels. (Surely if you suffer from diabetes, you’d talk to your doctor about eating or taking anything that might impact how much insulin you need to control blood glucose levels.) It also contains caffeine and green tea. Both are familiar to the weight loss industry. When used properly, both can help with weight loss.

Burn TS Review

After two weeks, Meratrim (An ingredient in Burn TS) significantly reduced body weight by 4.5 pounds and waist and hip circumference by 1.6 inches and 1 inch, respectively, compared to placebo.

 

Meratrim is a combination of two plant extracts: Garcinia mangostana and Sphaeranthus Indicus. [5] [6] The ingredients are typically found in Southeast Asian countries. Typically, the ingredient is used in dietary supplements. What is the main benefit of Meratrim? The ingredient incorporates lipolysis or the process of breaking down fats in order to release fatty acids. [7] In addition to weight loss, Meratrim may help suppress appetite and reduce waist and hip circumference. [8] Sphaeranthus Indicus has also been connected to weight loss. [9]

Meratrim Efficacy

Clinical studies confirmed users of Meratrim lost on average 11.2 pounds more than those on the placebo.

Meratrim Safety

Meratrim is safe and well tolerated at the recommended dosage of 800mg; two 400mg pills per day.

ChromeMate combines chromium and niacin. It’s also known as chromium polynicotinate. The benefits of ChromeMate include helping users maintain body weight, cholesterol levels, and healthy blood sugar levels.

ChromeMate Efficacy

Several studies have shown that ChromeMate is effective in weight management. [10]

ChromeMate Safety

There are no safety concerns associated with using this product. [11]

Caffeine is found primarily in coffee beans, kola nuts, and tea leaves. It’s one of the most used ingredients in dietary supplements. Considering caffeine is a stimulant, there’s research showing it improves cognitive function, improves energy, and has a positive effect on weight loss.

Caffeine Efficacy

Studies show the connection between the use of caffeine and weight management. [12]

Caffeine Safety

According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), caffeine is generally recognized as safe (GRAS). Some research shows the recommended dose shouldn’t exceed 400mg per day. [12]

Green tea extract is obtained from the plant Camellia sinensis. This extract is known to help improve overall health, as well as help with weight management. Additional benefits of green tea include helping lower high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

Green Tea Extract Efficacy

Studies confirm the ability of green tea extract to cause a reduction in weight.

Green Tea Extract Safety

Green tea extract is generally considered safe and is well tolerated. [13]

The Science Behind Burn TS

Burn TS Review

Burn TS ReviewA 2014 clinical trial published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Library of Medicine states, “Previous studies have demonstrated that Meratrim is effective for weight management in obese individuals.” [14] [15]

And, in a 2010 study published by the Obesity Society, participants that took ChromeMate (An ingredient in Burn TS) versus people that were given a placebo had a “greater degree of weight loss.”

The ‘Efficacy and Tolerability of Meratrim for Weight Management’ study had 60 overweight participants in two random groups, one getting the Meratrim the other a placebo. The 16-week study had participants consume 2000 calories a day and walk 5 days a week for 30 minutes daily. At the end of the study, the results demonstrated “statistically significant reductions” in body weight; 11 pounds lost in the Meratrim group and 2 pounds lost in the placebo group. Plus, waist measurements saw a dramatic reduction; 4 inches in the Meratrim group and 1.5 inches in the placebo group.Burn TS Review

Hip size was reduced by more than double, plus, bad cholesterol was lowered dramatically and there were “no supplementation related adverse” effects.

Bottom line:

“The study findings suggest that Meratrim is well-tolerated and is an effective ingredient for weight management in healthy overweight subjects.” [16]

You cannot argue with science. (I mean you can try, but science will always win.) And, this study’s results were combined with a separate 40-subject study and published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, which demonstrated significant reduction in weight, waist and hip circumference, and an increase in quality of life parameters compared to the placebo, which could be seen as early as two weeks in. After two weeks, Meratrim significantly reduced body weight by 4.5 pounds and waist and hip circumference by 1.6 inches and 1 inch, respectively, compared to placebo.

After eight weeks, weight was significantly reduced by 11.5 pounds and waist and hip circumferences were reduced by 4.7 inches and 2.4 inches, respectively, compared to placebo. Study participants walked 30 minutes, five days a week and followed a standard 2,000 kcal/day diet as part of the lifestyle change. [17]

And, in a 2010 study published by the Obesity Society, participants that took ChromeMate versus people that were given a placebo had a “greater degree of weight loss.” [18]

Word on the Street About Burn TS

It was easy to find Burn TS reviews. Burn TS earned a whopping 4.2 out of 5 stars and if you’ve ever bought or thought of buying diet supplements on Amazon, you know users are tough critics and usually fairly candid.

Laura Thomas (2017, 5 star),

“Kinda skeptical at first. Being new to using diet pills and all. Need to lose that muffin top and baby weight. Didn’t really know what was the best option. Beside eating right and exercise, I didn’t know if curbing hunger was better than increasing energy or did I need something that could do both. Might have found a winner in this one. Curbs my hunger and give me increased energy. Just started so weight loss is slow and steady.” [19]

“I am 57 years old and have been using Burn TS for a month and a half. I am a night snacker and using Burn TS has helped me. What was surprising to me was it really reduced the craving to eat and did not have the usual jittering you would have expected with a supposed ‘diet’ supplement.” [23]

An anonymous customer (2017, 3 star),

“I am taking Burn Weight Control Formula and I have lost about 5 pounds so far. I have not had any side effects so far. Their customer service rep was also very helpful.” [20]

Curious. Not sure why just a 3-star then. But moving along to the 4-star folks.

Micah Legarde (2017, 4 star),

“I’m guilty, did one of those New Year type of challenges on January 1. Lost a few pounds and felt better about myself. What happened a few months down the road? Life happened and those pounds lost tuned into a few pounds gained. Still felt good about what I accomplished overall, but wanted those last few pounds to just stay off. I was eating healthy and exercising, so that side was covered. Also, I read that taking the right supplement could be the kicker. Looked to see if a fat burner, appetite suppressant or metabolism booster was the best option. It wasn’t until I found one that contained all three that I started to become pretty excited. Did the research and went from there. My New Year challenge may have hit a bit of a roadblock, but I feel as if I found something that will put me back on track.” [21]

Aaron Murray (2017, 5 star)

“Started really hitting the gym about a month ago. Wanted to get that before workout boost, but didn’t want to spend the money on a pre workout. Not that they’re not useful, it's just that you don’t just need a pre, you’ll need an intra and a post workout as well. Plus, all of those do something different. So, I wasn’t really interested in spending that kind of cash. Plus, some of them contain ingredients I’m not too familiar with. Did my homework and this one was the right fit. Contains green tea and caffeine to give me exactly what I was looking for. Been seeing some promising research out there on Meratrim and ChromeMate, so I’m happy those two ingredients are in there as well.” [22]

Lastly, while I generally do not as a rule use reviews or testimonials on product sites or social media, I found Luis’ review to be so genuine and so real:

“When I made the decision to start losing weight, I was tipping the scales at 305 lbs. I had planned to start eating eggs whites for protein. On the same website I found some information that companies different kinds of ways to lose weight and that’s when I decided to try out your product because Burn TS was on the top of the list. My first bottle came a few months ago. I started taking the recommended dosage and also continued doing regular exercise (in house). I am 55 years old. I do not go to the gym (I am on a tight budget) But I do as much exercise on my stationary bike and abdominals as much as I can every day. Note: I had previously dieted for many years and logged my efforts as well but I have never achieved the (kind of) results (as with) Burn TS. Great product.” [23]

The Bottom Line: Is Burn TS Worth a Try?

Yes!

As I said at the top, I need to munch at night. Cheryl, who also happens to be around my age (late 50’s), does too:

“I am 57 years old and have been using Burn TS for a month and a half. I am a night snacker and using Burn TS has helped me. What was surprising to me was it really reduced the craving to eat and did not have the usual jittering you would have expected with a supposed ‘diet’ supplement.” [23]

We are simpatico. So that’s that. I know caffeine. I know green tea. And I know about Meratrim and ChromeMate (and have written about both before). I will double check with my doctor, which I always do when I embark on any dietary change, and you should too, but I’m confident she’ll be onboard.
