SHREDZ Fat Burner for Women Review

SHREDZ Fat Burner Facts

  • Marketed by Shredz – a bodybuilding supplements company
  • Each bottle contains 60 capsules (or perhaps 59 capsules)
  • Just because it is in a pink bottle does not mean this supplement is safe for women to take

Shredz Fat Burner Made For Women is made by Beyond Genetics Supplements and marketed by Shredz. This US company market supplements for both men and women and the focus is on the body beautiful, training in the gym and working out.

Shredz have what they describe as “athletes” as their “ambassadors” and these super toned men and women are all part of the Shredz Army and feature strongly on the website. If you buy Shredz products, you can be part of the Shredz Army too!

The Shredz For Women range comes in some edgy black and neon pink advertising and has a punky type of appeal with attitude!

Most people will be carried away by the image and we admit to being tempted by it ourselves. It is easy to forget that you will not be carried away to a magical world with beautiful people if you buy these capsules.

Remember, once they drop through your mailbox, they may not seem quite as exciting. Essentially you are on your own with a bottle of pills in your own home so it is important to really know exactly what it is you are buying without the hype.

SHREDZ Fat BurnerShredz Fat Burner is described as a natural thermogenic formula that “melts fat away” and will get you skinny, sexy and toned.

This all sounds fun but the ingredients list is not much of a laugh. This supplement will have a stimulant effect and includes Yohimbe and Synephrine among its contents.

Both these ingredients are well known for potentially dangerous side effects mainly around the heart and blood pressure and the medical advice is to avoid them.

Many customers report a strong appetite suppressing effect, which helps them lose weight by making them feel too sick to eat.

Worrying, the ingredients in the Shredz formula – the Shredz Fat burning complex does not list individual ingredient amount quantities. It contains 934mg of active ingredients but how this is broken down is anybody’s guess.

How To take Shredz Fat Burner for Women

If you workout in the AM, take one (1) capsule pre-workout with breakfast followed by one (1) capsule in the afternoon.

If you workout in the PM, take one (1) capsule with breakfast followed by one (1) capsule pre-workout.

The Shredz Made For Women Line includes four products.

As well as Shredz Fat Burner, you can buy Shredz Anti Aging Made For Women designed to reverse the signs of aging and an expensive multi vitamin supplement (Shredz Multi Vitamin Made For Women) which at $55 per tub is a very expensive way of taking a general vitamin supplement.

Shredz also sell Her Creatine – a Creatine supplement that will not cause bloating.

If you have any questions, you can ask a “transformation specialist” via live chat.

SHREDZ Fat Burner for Women Concerns:

  • The ingredients have been linked with causing serious side effects including strokes and heart attacks
  • This supplement claims to help fitness yet in reality it is an unhealthy way to lose weight
  • The potential side effects. We cannot stress this enough. Shredz Fat Burner will be dangerous for some people

What Does SHREDZ Fat Burner for Women Claim To Do?

Shredz Fat Burner claims to help you “Burn Fat and Boost Energy”.

It is a;

gluten-free fat burner with naturally found ingredients is designed to deliver smooth clean energy and helps you focus so you can maximize your results and lower your body fat percentage in those troubled areas.

There are five key benefits to this supplement. It will help you:

  • Burn Fat
  • Get Lean
  • Clean Energy
  • No Jitters
  • Increased Focus

Ingredients like Vitamin B5, Green Tea Extract, and Cayenne Pepper Extract help raise the body’s internal temperature to burn fat

We are not so sure that these ingredients will have these effects and the Shredz advertising does not include any clinical proof or evidence that their claims are true.

So What Is SHREDZ Fat Burner and What Are The Ingredients For SHREDZ Fat Burner?

Shredz Fat Burner is a diet pill that is supposed to help you burn off fat. Serving size is in two capsules so this will be your full daily supply.

The principle ingredient is the SHREDZ® Proprietary Fat Burning Complex For Women, which contains 934mg of active ingredients.

We cannot provide a fully detailed ingredients breakdown because this information is unavailable but we can provide a general overview.

  • Alpha Lipolic Acid: (Not to be confused with Alpha Linoleic Acid or ALA). Alpha Lipolic Acid is an antioxidant, which is found in some commonplace foodstuffs including yeast, broccoli, potatoes and liver as well as manufactured in the lab for medicinal use. It is used to treat diabetic nerve pain such as numbness and tingling in the hands and legs. There is however no evidence that it will be effective for weight loss or for improving cognitive ability.

  • Theobromine: Bitter Alkaloid of the cocoa plant and present in chocolate, tea leaves and the cola nut. Theobromine is used in medicine to widen the blood vessels and as a heart stimulant.
  • Acetyl L-Carnitine: This may play a role in the treatment of cancer and it may have an effect upon the metabolism and muscle development. However, Acetyl L Carnitine is largely untested for its role in weight loss and has mainly undergone animal testing. The long lasting effects and optimum dose need to be further tested.
    Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22549035
  • Synephrine HCL: Synthetic version of a compound found naturally in orange skin where it is known as Citrus Aurantium and believed to help weight loss by increasing the metabolism.
    Synephrine is often used as a legal alternative to banned drug ephedrine and has similar dangerous side effects. It increases the risk of heart attacks and strokes. We covered Synephrine in a previous investigation.
  • Gugglesterones 99% E&Z Plant steroid: Found in the resin of a north Indian tree. There are two Stereoisomers – types of molecule groups called E or Z. Guggulsterone was once believed to decrease cholesterol synthesis in the liver but extensive studies have now proven that Gugglestone has no effect upon cholesterol. It can act like oestrogen in the body and will not be suitable for all women.
    Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guggulsterone
  • Yohimbine HCL: Yohimbe is believed to improve sexual and athletic performance but lacks evidence to prove this. Reported side effects include blood pressure changes, heart beat irregularities and heart attacks. This ingredient is on the dangerous list of supplements.
    Source: http://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/news/20040401/dietary-supplements
  • Cayenne Pepper Extract: Commonplace spice found in most kitchens. Some evidence has suggested that it may increase serotonin and so when taken in large doses may help prevent comfort eating. High levels of cayenne may increase the metabolism.
  • Green Tea Extract: Rich in the antioxidants Polyphenols and Catechins, which are excellent for maintaining health. Green tea has been found to promote modest weight loss because it can increase the speed of the metabolism and the rate at which you burn off fat Contains caffeine
    Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23140132
  • Caffeine Anhydrous: Well known stimulant that is believed to burn fat. Most diet supplements contain caffeine and it is ideal for giving you a quick energy boost. It can increase the speed of the metabolism and help fat burning but the effects are often short lived.

As well as the formula, Shredz also contains:

  • Choline (Choline Bitartate) (100mg): Essential nutrient present in many foodstuffs including chicken, wheat germ, cod and almonds. Choline is effective for the treatment of asthma and is often taken by athletes to improve endurance.
  • Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) (20mg): Important vitamin that plays a role in the destabilisation of fat and cholesterol
  • Vitamin B7 (BIOTIN) (100mg): Important B vitamin that helps healthy skin, nerves, metabolism, and present in a normal diet without the need for supplementation.
    The benefits and risks of biotin supplementation are not clear. The RDA is set as 30mcg so this amount is extremely high and possibly unsafe. Check with a doctor if you have any other medical condition before taking because it can interact with medication.

So What Does All This Mean?

We really do not like the look of this supplement. It contains some dangerous ingredients and there is no evidence that it will help you lose weight. As well as the Synephrine and Yohimbine, it contains Guggulsterone, which works in the body in a similar way to oestrogen. Medical advice is to avoid Guggulsterone if you have any hormone related conditions such as breast cancer – that is if you even know. In addition many of the so-called benefits of this cocktail of ingredients are unproven and as with Guggulsterone have been found not to work.

As ever, with supplements like this, the full ingredients information is not provided so you really will have no idea of what you are taking and what this will do. It is important to remember that the diet pill industry is unregulated so just because a supplement is on sale does not mean it is necessarily safe.

Does SHREDZ Fat Burner for Women Have Any Side Effects?

Yes, it does have side effects and customers have experienced a range of problems.

One customer reported;

I got EXTREMELY sick! I was throwing up violently for about 5-6 hours. I couldn’t even keep water down. When I went to the doctor the following day she highly recommended me to stop taking the fat burner. She said that a lot of these products take a dangerous toll on your liver.

We cannot argue with that.

Other customers have reported similar experiences;

This product made me extremely sick to my stomach and shaky all day long. I made sure to eat with it and not to take in any additional caffeine and still I felt like crap.

Another reported;

makes me feel nervous and out of sorts. I guess this is the way diet pills are supposed to make you feel

(There is no point in taking a diet pill that makes you feel like that. Not all diet pills have this effect. )

Even more worryingly, another customer reported;

I had to force myself to eat a sandwich at dinner. Aside from minor chest pains, which I attribute to taking this on practically an empty stomach, this is exactly what I have been looking for.
I’m taking it with actual food for breakfast today and am hoping for similar results without the chest pain.

This customer is taking a real risk in continuing using these pills with chest pains.

Potential side effects include:

  • Vomiting
  • Stomach upsets
  • Loose stools
  • Nausea
  • Chest pains
  • Breathlessness
  • Increased risk of heart attack or stroke
  • Increased risk of liver problems
  • Whooshing sound in ears – symptom of high blood pressure
  • Jitteriness
  • Anxiety
  • Skin rash
  • Itching
  • Tremors

Caution: Avoid if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
Do not take if you suffer from any type of heart condition or high blood pressure. If you experience related side effects such as chest pain discontinue use immediately. Do not take if you are sensitive to hormone related conditions such as breast cancer or uterine fibroids.
Avoid if you are taking the birth control pill because it may increase side effects and do not take if you are on prescription medication because of interactions.
Seek the advice of your doctor before you start taking this pill and get qualified medical advice in case of side effects.

Any SHREDZ Fat Burner for Women Reviews From Customers?

Yes, and it is the usual mixed bag of opinion. Some customers have been pleased with this supplement.

One user reported;

As a fitness model, I’m always looking for new products to improve my fitness goals. I found that Shredz gives me energy without the shaky feeling that other fat burners tend to give you.

Some customers have issues with the amount of pills in each bottle. It seems that in many cases you only receive 59 capsules in place of the advertised 60.

The Fat Burner and the Multivitamin both say 60 capsules but both only had 59

Complained one customer. Many others reported the same thing and have been left feeling ripped off.

Some customers found that Shredz Fat Burner did nothing for them;

These did nothing for me. I feel like I wasted my money. They made no difference when I added it to my routine.

These negative comments are in addition to the complaints about unpleasant side effects.

So Does SHREDZ Fat Burner Work?

Shredz Fat burner obviously does work for some people, that is if they do not mind the side effects. However, we don’t think that it looks very safe and although it may help you lose some weight it is not worth gambling with your health.

Some of these ingredients are well known for causing dangerous side effects and we are not being over cautious about this. Many people have reported real problems after taking this supplement and many of the ingredients come with real and medically proven dangers.

Is it really worth it? After all, you could lose weight with a serious illness or a bout of diarrhoea and vomiting too but would you really want to?

We feel that this supplement will probably do nothing for safe weight loss. Once you have finished taking the pills, you will probably put any weight you lost back on. This diet pill is extreme and gimmicky and may pose a real risk to your health.

Where Can I Buy SHREDZ Fat Burner for Women?

You can buy Shredz Fat Burner Made For Women direct from the Shredz website.

One bottle of 60 capsules is 30 servings and costs $60.00, which works out at $1.00 per pill.

This should be enough for one month’s supply but make sure you count the contents of each bottle because Shredz are well known for sending only 59 capsules.

You can also buy Shredz Fat Burner via Amazon.com. for the slightly cheaper price of $45.00.

You cannot buy Shredz direct if you live outside the USA. It is not available from UK Amazon.

What About A Guarantee

No money back guarantee is offered. A representative has responded to customer complaints via Amazon but has not offered any type of refund.

Watchdog Verdict

It comes as no surprise to find that we are not impressed with Shredz Fat Burner Made For Women. It features some attractive and powerfully persuasive advertising but is short on any real information. Given that it contains some potentially very dangerous ingredients that can cause serious harm this lack of contents information is a real concern.

Some people have lost weight because it has made them feel too sick to eat but this is not a healthy method of weight loss and will probably lead to weight gain once you finish the pills.

In addition, the company seem extremely tricksy with sending 59 capsules in place of 60 and we are also unimpressed with the lack of a guarantee.

We would not take this supplement ourselves and we certainly would not recommend other people to try it too. It is an easy decision: we reject Shredz Fat Burner Made For Women.

  1. Ursula M says:

    I took this for 4 days with no problems. On the 5th day about 10 minutes or so after taking it i had a sever allergic reaction. Red rash all over my upper body and parts of my legs. I was extremely hot and started hyperventilating. I made a call to my Dr she advised to take some benadryl and drink ALOT of water (AND THROW AWAY THE PILLS) and multiple trips to the bathroom after about 5 hours I felt ok but it wasnt until the next day that i felt better. DO NOT TAKE THIS PRODUCT! I am out the $ i spent for the alpha female stack as they do not accept returns on opened bottles!

  2. Keri says:

    Much like Ursula, I too had a severe allergic reaction all over my entire body. It set in about 10 mins after I took both the multi vitamin for women and the fat burner. Rash was severe on legs, arms, chest, stomach and face. Only after 2 benadryl and 35 mins did the itch and rash lessen but the heat lingered as well as feeling faint of breath. DO NOT PURCHASE!

  3. H says:

    I took the fat burner pill for the first time today (first pill) and a couple hours later in the middle of work, I started feeling jittery, shaky, anxious, sweaty, hot, and uneasy with a burning in my ear! I had to close all the windows from the sun and heat and was freaking out. Felt like a panice attack! I’ve never felt this way before. DO NOT BUY THIS CRAP!

  4. Eshraq says:

    I was going to get these pills but heard bad things about them so I was hesitating. But now after reading this article, I ain’t getting those pills!
    Thanks for the in-depth info!

  5. mg says:

    I took my 1st fat burner pill TODAY 9/15/14 with breakfast and by noon I swore I felt like I was going to die! EXTREMLY jittery my heart felt like it was going to jump out of chest! so I started drinking lot of water but by 12:40 pm I felt like I was going to pass out. I carefully walked to my co-workers desk and told her what I took and asked her to call 911 if I passed out. I’m asking ALL to please be careful when taking the fat burner. I’ve never ever felt like this in my LIFE! I called my doctor to inform her and she recommend that I a) eat a heavy meal with lots of water and b) head out to the nearest urgent care if I continued to feel this way. After a sandwich and just about a gallon of water I’m feeling a tad bit better…PLEASE PLEASE do not take this pill….I feel completely SILLY…. to say the least, for taking this pill.

  6. Chris says:

    I’ve been taking this for months, no problems. It gives me the energy to push through tuff xfit workouts.

  7. Paola says:

    I’m 21 years old and I have recently purchased the shredz alpha . About 2 weeks ago I had a horrible panic attack . After reading this I started to put 2 and 2 together . I have never felt like that nor do I ever want to feel like that again. I felt like I was going to die and I thought I am too young to be feeling like I am having a heart attack. My twitching did not stop untill 3 days after I stop taking it. Please don’t take this pill it’s been a week. And I am still getting sick but slowly recovering from it each day I feel better and better since I stop taking them

  8. Kristen says:

    Omg, I took the fat burner and multi vitamin this a.m. with breakfast (as directed) grabbed my infant son n went to the grocery store, I only made it to the first isle and felt so incredibly short of breath, and heart racing, and thirsty as hell. I must’ve looked crazy bcuz I felt like I was on speed. I had to leave the store, carefully drove home n put the baby down…Frank almost a gallon of water, had to eat n felt a little better. Then came the dizziness, I had to lay down, couldn’t stop clenching my teeth and slurring whenever I tried to talk. It’s 8 pm now and I’m JUST NOW kinda feeling like it’s going away..I DID NOT take the pm dose, nor do I intend on taking these things again. I’m out a bunch of money, but I’ll be around for my kids…take the old advice…JUST SAY NO. lol

  9. Mary Kay Durham says:

    I’m right there wit the rest of you ladies! Although I do not fill jittery or short of breath, I break out into a horrible rash, my face and body gets incredibly red and flustere for about 20 minutes at the least. It feels like a temporary sunburn. If this part of the product would go away I would be more understanding to continue use, but because of the rash break out, I wish I wouldn’t have wasted my money.

  10. josette says:

    I been taking fat burner and her creatine. I have no side effects I have increased energy and I do better workouts now. I just got my second order for the transformation challenge. I am going to continue taking them.

  11. Chanel says:

    I took these supplements for the first time today. After about an hour I started to feel really anxious likei couldn’t calm down. Very jittery and an overall weird feeling I can’t describe. I am not going to continue using these supplements after reading these comments. I hope water will help flush this out so I can calm down for the rest of the day

  12. Daisy says:

    Please don’t take this supplement I got the fat burner and the multivitamin (“sexy and lean”) and I thought I was going to die I felt like crap I had panic attacks and had energy but then I started sweating and feeling dizzy it felt like if I had a cocaine overdose even if it sound funny please don’t waist your money on this product . Theirs nothing like eating clean and exercise without risking your health!!!

  13. Sasha says:

    Please please stay away from these- They are bad for you! they do false advertising and pay athletes to advertise these. They have no ingredients on the site. like the rest i got the fat burner and i thought i was going to die.

  14. Joanna Campos says:

    I took them for 1st week I gave it a try followed the instruction on the bottles and I broke out in hives on the 3rd day taking the pills, my back was full of rashes from this product I took the fat burner the multivitamin and pre-creatine ate clean and healthy gave me jitters . I do not recommend this product. WASTE of MONEY…

  15. Stephany says:

    I don’t think these pills are good for you. I just started taking them today, and right now I can’t sleep. I’ve been using the restroom since about 3 hours ago and keep going. I feel jittery and nervous and keep thinking that I’m going to die . It’s not a good feeling. I am not saying DON’T USE THEM! but use at your own risk. All I know, is that I’m not taking them anymore after this, because the side effects are horrible. :(

  16. Ashley says:

    I took this for the first time this am. I have already taken the multi vitamins (no side effects) and with my lunch, I took 1 fat burner. I actually feel nothing. No side effects, no energy. It’s like I didn’t take anything. I am going to continue to take it for a while and see what happens.

  17. Nicole says:

    I started taking these a couple of days ago and this may sound weird but I have had sharp pains on the left side of my head. I read that there is a risk of stroke so I will no longer take these pills. I just thought it may be that I needed to drink more water, as with most fat burners.

  18. alexis says:

    im on day 3 and have felt fine so far until last night. i ate after my workout and i felt like i was going to throw up after i ate. dont know if its a side effect or if im getting my period. i have had stomach pains and cramps on my right side and i usually dont get them, period or no period. testing it out for the rest of the week.

  19. Tina says:

    All the side effects can happen, but you are suppose to eat a meal before taking the pills and drink lots of water. Drinking lots of water helps with metabolism and it seems most of you haven’t been doing that. These pills worked great for me!

  20. Adrianna says:

    These did give me a few headaches the first week. However, I will continue to take them since they give me so much energy throughout the day as well as during workouts. I am confused on whether to take them with the “Her Creatine” because both of the labels warn you not to take either with another dietary supplement containing caffeine.. they both contain caffeine. I am confused.

  21. Emily says:

    Took the burner pill today along with the toner and vitamin. Went to the gym for a good hour and worked up a sweat! This is not a pill to just take for a diet. This burner pill is to help ladies workout in a gym setting or some kind of cardio. Not for grocery shopping. Jitters are barely there if you put in a decent workout. You cant just take this pill and expect the weight to come off. Its not how weight loss works. Also try eating a protein bar, and that will help with jitters…

  22. Terra says:

    I have been taking the Sexy & Lean combo which is the Fat Burner and Toner for about a week now and LOVE them.. I haven’t had any side effects and I can push through my workouts. I agree with Emily, you can’t take them and not change your diet and exercise! That isn’t what they are made for!

  23. Rebecca says:

    Took a Fatburner about 3 hours ago with breakfast, I drink a lot of water anyways so on my 3rd full glass….don’t feel anything yet.

  24. Justine says:

    I have been taking these fat burner pills for about 5 days now and working out. I feel nothing. No jitters in fact i was hoping they would give me energy. I took 2 today and it feels as though they are making me sleepy. I am going to be cautious and discontinue if I experience any of the side effects you ladies described. I’m also going to weigh myself at the end of the week to see if it made any significant differece. If not then theres no point in taking them and I will stop.

  25. Brenda says:

    I just purchased the “Sexy and Lean” package before reading all these reviews! I am 21 years old looking to lose 20 lbs…. I hope I don’t get bad side effects.

  26. vivian says:

    Just started the female alpha stack today…just like many of u, about 10 minutes after taking the detox and burner I broke out in severe hives on my face, neck, chest, ears, arms and legs and felt as if my body were on fire!! my body then started to shake uncontrollably! im so sad because i was really looking forward to start these supplements :( and the weird thing is that im not allergic to anything and have never experienced this before. it took about 2-3 hours for my body to settle down and start feeling back to normal

  27. Yobana says:

    I just started (today) taking these and it was afterward when I started working out that I saw this info. This actually scared me. Now I’m just drinking lots of water to get It out of my system and I feel a bit jittery. I’m not taking this ever again, my life is to precious and I can burn fat without it, I just wanted a boost but now I regret it.

  28. Lindsey says:

    Took all three pills from the womens alpha stack for the first time today, went to the gym an hour later and had a great work out. When I took the second set of pills later in the after noon I had a really bad allergic reacton. My face was covered in hives, my ears were on fire and I felt like I was going to pass out. I would recommend starting off by taking them once a day then ease your way into taking them twice a day. Make sure you eat something before taking them as well, even if your not hungry at least eat a slice of bread or some crackers.

  29. Agnes says:

    on my three weeks of taking shredz burner. My left eye started to burn. It’s like I can see red veins inside my eyes. Is it from the fat burner?

  30. nata says:

    Ive been taking shredz for two weeks now; but i guess this product isnt just made for everybody; but im actually considering to stop usage of this product. I honestly feel no real side affects, no jitters, no vomiting, i still have my appetite, expect since i recently went to the doctors i was told my blood pressure was very low and not sure if this is due to using the product or other sources; but ive only used this product when im going to work out, otherwise i dont touch them; but every workout session i feel full of enegry and finish to the end. I have seen improvmentes, lost 7pounds in just the first week of trying it. But honeslty after reading this page, ive taking to much consider the usage of this product. Thanks for the information.
