We receive many inquiries from customers curious about the difference between two of our best-selling fat burners, Burn-XT and Thermo-XT. This guide will get you up to speed on these fat burners so you can decide which is suitable for your weight-loss program. We'll also briefly talk about the science behind the ingredients in each product to give you a general idea of how they enhance fat loss.
Let's start with an overview of what Burn-XT and Thermo-XT have in common.
Thermo-XT and Burn-XT are thermogenic supplements featuring robust lineups of clinically studied ingredients. The term "thermogenic" refers to the process of heat production (thermogenesis). Our bodies are constantly dissipating heat as a byproduct of metabolism; hence, an increase in thermogenesis is indicative of a higher metabolic rate.
The formulas of Burn-XT and Thermo-XT share a few of the same core ingredients at similar doses, including:
Caffeine, green tea extract, and Capsimax® do most of the work in these fat burners by increasing energy expenditure (i.e. calorie burning), facilitating lipolysis (fat breakdown), enhancing fatty acid oxidation, and curbing appetite [1, 2, 3]. In simple terms, they help your body burn more calories throughout the day, reduce food cravings, and encourage the use of fat for energy.
Naturally, those are all imperative for success on a weight-loss program. Even as a supplement company, we can't dispute that you won't get lean if you're not controlling your food intake and maintaining an energy deficit by burning more calories than you consume. Thus, we formulated Burn-XT and Thermo-XT with the same "base" of ingredients that make those challenges a little easier.
Importantly, we made sure not to get too carried away with stimulants in either Burn-XT or Thermo-XT. Both formulas will provide lasting energy and steady appetite suppression without making you feel jittery or anxious. (If you're looking for a stimulant-free fat burner, Lean-XT has you covered.)
Rather than reinventing the wheel like far too many fat burners attempt, we formulated Burn-XT with five evidence-based ingredients in doses backed by scientific and clinical research. These ingredients include the aforementioned "base" of caffeine, green tea leaf extract, Capsimax, and BioPerine, plus acetyl-L-carnitine (ALCAR).
So, what makes ALCAR so special?
Well, ALCAR is a highly bioavailable form of L-carnitine, an essential compound that transports long-chain fatty acids into mitochondria . Once inside mitochondria, fatty acids can be burned (oxidized) for energy. As such, ALCAR ensures your cells have an ample supply of "helper molecules" (read: carnitines) to burn body fat effectively.
Thermo-XT contains the same ingredients (sans ALCAR) as Burn-XT and a few additional fat-burning agents, namely Infinergy™ sustained-release caffeine (as caffeine di-malate), rauwolscine, forskolin, and L-theanine. Therefore, Thermo-XT is ideal for experienced gym-goers, bodybuilders, and athletes with a higher tolerance for stimulants. If you're a coffee drinker, energy drink connoisseur, or use pre-workout powders regularly, you probably fit that description.
But don't worry if you don't consider yourself an "advanced" supplement user, as Thermo-XT is designed for anyone that wants to cut body fat and get lean.
Moreover, you may prefer Thermo-XT over Burn-XT if you're looking specifically for a fat burner to take before you hit the gym. The higher caffeine content of Thermo-XT coupled with L-theanine makes it a perfect pre-workout thermogenic to help you stay focused and "in the zone" when pushing yourself through an intense cardio session or banging out reps in the squat rack. Alternatively, we offer NitroSurge Shred as a delicious thermogenic pre-workout formula.
Since Thermo-XT also contains the yohimbine-like plant alkaloid rauwolscine, it's an exceptional fat burner for pre-HIIT (high-intensity interval training) use. Similar to caffeine, rauwolscine is a potent CNS stimulant that can help you train harder and longer by promoting catecholamine transmission .
Research suggests that yohimbine and its close relative rauwolscine target stubborn body fat by inhibiting alpha-2-adrenergic receptors that normally prevent your body from using fat for energy . Rauwolscine has also been shown to activate serotonin receptors, thereby suppressing appetite and improving mood during exercise (and throughout the day) [7, 8].
The forskolin in Thermo-XT takes fat-burning up another notch by increasing cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) activity and thyroid function . Consequently, forskolin works much like rauwolscine by liberating stored triglycerides (fat molecules) from body fat so they can be burned for energy.
Okay, so now it's time to make the dramatic, life-altering decision of whether you should take Burn-XT or Thermo-XT to complement your fat-loss regimen.
Our take is that most gym-goers and athletes should start with Burn-XT, especially if this is the first time using a thermogenic supplement. The slightly lower amount of stimulants in Burn-XT make it a superb entry into the world of fat burners.
Since Thermo-XT contains a more advanced range of ingredients, it might be a bit too much off the bat for less-experienced supplement users and those with a lower tolerance to stimulants. You can always begin with Burn-XT and try Thermo-XT on the second go-around.
Active individuals who have experience taking supplements with caffeine and a higher tolerance for stimulants will likely prefer Thermo-XT. That's not to say Thermo-XT will be counterproductive as a first-time fat burner. If you're a beginner, we recommend taking just one capsule (half a serving) for the first dose to assess your response. As long as it doesn't hit you too hard, move up to the full two-capsule dose the following day.
No matter which product you end up choosing, we back every bottle with a 100% money-back guarantee. That's just how confident we are that you will be completely satisfied with any of our fat burners.
And you'll be happy to know that both of these fat burners carry the same exceptional value at just under $1 per serving ($29.99 for 30 servings). To purchase Burn-XT or Thermo-XT, follow the links below:
