If you like bodybuilding supplements that contain high amounts of stimulants then you will probably like this one. We would urge caution when advising people to take bodybuilding supplements – they can cause serious health problems and some of the ingredients such as Citrus Aurantium can put a strain upon the heart.
However, the bodybuilding world seems to run on taking stimulants and Compress Fever fits into this category with some extra weight loss ingredients thrown in.
How To take Compress Fever
Take 3 capsules 30 minutes before breakfast and a further 3 capsules 30 minutes before lunch.
You are advised to use for three weeks continuously then take a break for a week before resuming for the next three weeks.
Do not exceed the dose and do not take in the evening or later.

Nutrend manufacture all the supplements they sell and fully comply with international standards and certification.
Compress Fever is part of Nutrend’s bodybuilder range of supplements so by its very nature is a lot stronger and harder hitting than the Nutrend mainstream supplements.

Nutrend sell via a network of international dealers and retail outlets across the world but are not directly available to customers in the USA or the UK.
However, you can find Compress supplements on sale from the list of international distributors listed on the website.
Compress Fever Concerns:
- Stimulant heavy, could cause serious side effects
- Why can;t we buy this supplement from anywhere we have ever heard of such as Amazon?
- Nutrend claim that Compress Fever will not cause doping issues but some sporting authorities have banned Citrus Aurantium supplements.
What Does Compress Fever Claim To Do?
According to Nutrend Compress Fever is;
the most efficient fat burner containing only strictly legal substances you can find.
contains a Revolutionary formula and synergic combination of ingredients unrivalled in the current market.
Its formula is everything what every hard training athlete could wish for. Metabolism acceleration, stimulation, increase in thermogenesis and better absorption of nutrients.
The Compress Fever information states that this supplement is intended for;
hard and intensively training sportsmen and athletes
It does not contain substances of doping character
So What Is Compress Fever and What Are The Ingredients For Compress Fever?
Compass Fever is a pre workout supplement and fat burner. Ingredients are in daily doses of 6 capsules and is equal to 7220 mg. Each capsule contains 1203 mg.
Amounts here relate to the daily dose of 6 capsules (not per capsule):
- L –Carnitine L Tartrate (800mg): Often known by the more familiar name of L Carnitine, this amino acid helps the body convert fat into energy. Your body makes this substance in the kidneys and liver and stores it in the muscles, heart and brain.
Some studies show that;
oral Carnitine reduces fat mass, increases muscle mass, and reduces fatigue, which may contribute to weight loss in some people.
- L-Tyrosine (800 mg): Is an amino acid, which you can obtain through diet if you eat meat. It is believed to help training and is popular with body builders for this reason. L Tyrosine raises adrenaline levels and can make you feel too on edge to eat.
- L- Arginine (500mg): Amino acid (chemical building block) that is obtainable through diet most notably red meat and dairy products. It helps blood vessels dilate, is sometimes used to improve blood circulation, and has a variety of uses. May cause drug interactions.

- L-Citrulline Malate (360 mg): Amino acid that is found in foods including water melon and believed to improve exercise performance. However it lacks clinical evidence
Source: WebMD Resource
- GarCitrin (1500 mg): Branded Garcinia Cambogia supplement made in the USA by supplements company Sabinsa Corporation Despite the hype, the claims about Garcinia have not been proven.
- Gugulipid (800 mg): Branded Gugulipid (Guggulsterone) supplement of a Plant steroid and also a Sabinsa supplement. Guggulsterone is found in the resin of a north Indian tree and 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.
- Guarana extract (800mg): Natural South African berry that contains high levels of caffeine.
- Yerba Mate Extract (200 mg): Natural plant extract, high in caffeine.
- Citrus Aurantium Extract (120 mg): Also known as bitter orange extract or synephrine and banned by many sporting authorities as a stimulant. Citrus Aurantium causes the heart to beat faster and increases blood pressure. It is potentially dangerous.
- Withania Somnifera extract (100 mg): Also called Indian Ginseng and related to deadly nightshade. Might be effective as an adaptogen – i.e. improve general health and resistance. May increase thyroid hormone levels and reduce blood pressure. Long term safety unknown and can cause vomiting and other problems.
- Green tea extract (60mg): Green tea contains antioxidants and has medical benefits.
- Ginkgo Biloba extract (40 mg): Believed to improve memory and brain function but requires further evidence of efficacy.
- Bioperine (75 mg): Branded black pepper supplement that may help the absorption of the other ingredients.
- Chromium (1380 mcg): Trace mineral and according to medical advice unnecessary to take in supplement.
So What Does All This Mean?
Compress Fever contains a cocktail of ingredients and this is worrying because the higher the number of different components, the greater the chances of side effects and interactions.
Some of the ingredients are a matter of concern and will not suit everyone such as Guggulsterone, which may not be suitable for women, and Citrus Aurantium, which is known to increase heart rate and blood pressure.
You will notice the stimulant effects but many of the fat burning ingredients such as Garcinia Cambogia lack clinical evidence and may do nothing at all. On the other hand, all those stimulants will probably reduce your appetite.
There is a long list of potential side effects for this supplement. We certainly would not advise anyone to take this for weeks at a time as the product information advises.
Does Compress Fever Have Any Side Effects?
We couldn’t find any English speaking customer feedback for Compress Fever so only have the ingredients list to go on when it comes to side effects.
Potential side effects include:
- Increased blood pressure
- Alternatively reduced blood pressure
- Increased heart rate
- Increased risk of stroke and heart attack
- Increased risk of hormonal medical conditions related to oestrogen.
Avoid if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Do not take if you suffer from a medical condition related to heart, blood pressure or the thyroid.
Avoid if you suffer from glaucoma or if you have a hormonal related medical condition or sensitivity such as breast cancer.
Avoid if you are taking prescription medication because of the risk of drug interactions including anti depressants and blood thinning medication such as Warfarin.
Any Compress Fever Reviews From Customers?
We searched for Compress Fever reviews worldwide but were unable to find any customer feedback. Not even from Australia where this supplement is supposed to be on sale.
So Does Compress Fever Work?
Who knows what this combination of ingredients will do. This formula has never been tested so if you fancy being a guinea pig, here is your chance!
However, it will probably have a stimulant effect you can feel and this in turn may help promote weight loss by your enhanced activity levels combined with a stressed out buzz that takes away your appetite.
We cannot see it doing much otherwise. Body builders like amino acids and there is some evidence that they may help promote muscle building but this requires further evidence. Some of the other ingredients look promising but may not be safe – such as Withania Somnifera and Guggulsterone.
Citrus Aurantium can be unsafe and combined with all these other stimulants and an intensive gym workout this supplement looks too dangerous to take a chance on.
Where Can I Buy Compress Fever?
Nutrend sell via a network of distributors to various countries worldwide and you can find a retail outlet via the Nutrend website.
We took a look at one Greece based supplement company that we found via the Nutrend website.
They offer 120 caps of Compress Fever (20 days supply) for €43.92.
However, Nutrend products are not available in the UK or the USA and even the Australian outlet does not stock Compress Fever.
What About A Guarantee
No money back guarantee on offer.
Compress Fever is a body builders supplement and like all of these types of supplements is high in stimulants with a few weird novelty ingredients thrown in. However, none of this really matters because it seems such hard work to actually find out how to buy it.
Nutrend claim to have a worldwide network but this does not apply to the English-speaking world and some of their international retailers do not even stock Compress Fever. If you want it, you will have to go through an unknown overseas bodybuilding retailer and there may be issues with language and shipping.
Compress Fever is not on sale via Amazon or eBay so buying Compress Fever is just not that easy for English speaking clients. It is strange because the Nutrend website is written in English and the business looks extremely convincing.
We are unimpressed with supplement. We think it looks quite dangerous and are concerned about how all these ingredients will actually work together but at the end of the day, it does not matter because at the time of writing it appears practically unavailable to most of our readers.
Maybe that will change in the future but it does not make any difference to our final decision.
This supplement does not look very safe so we have no other choice but to reject Compress Fever.
