Can this thermogenic fat burner really do all this? If so, then men around the world should be queuing up and ordering. But is this supplement the real deal?
- Nice bottle design!
- Ingredient profile not fully disclosed
- Lacks clinical studies to support claims
- Uses incorrect “science”
- No physical address for the company
- Comes from Utah, the diet pill scam capital
- Manufactured by Ampersand Industries, LLC based in Utah
- Each bottle contains 112 blue capsules enough for 28 days supply
- Fat burner for men only
Taking a similar approach to marketing as Testoripped, this diet pill is very much geared towards guys looking for that lean, defined and ripped look without any flab. There is little doubt that MyoRipped is for guys!
The guys used on the official site have little fat and clearly spend a lot of time in the gym. The sales marketing more than suggests you too can get a body like this!
With the similarity to Testoripped we weren’t surprised to discover the owners are linked to a number of other Utah diet pill manufacturers. The owner, Ampersand Industries, LLC has a number of other diet pills, which we have also reviewed and have rejected. Based in Utah this company has links with Gadd Formulas (and may have owned MyoRipped before) who have a very poor history for consumer care and untrustworthy practice.
When searching for rip-off and scam reports online we found some consumers who failed to receive the product after ordering at the beginning of 2012.
Take a look here at their reports: http://www.ripoffreport.com/Search/myoripped.aspx
Each bottle contains 112 blue capsules with a maximum recommended dosage of 4 per day should be enough for 28 days supply. With the blue capsules and the reported increase in libido we did wonder if there was an intended similarity to Viagra.
- Outrageous claims not backed by any clinical evidence!
- Manufactured by company with dubious history
- All marketing and NO substance

So What Is MyoRipped and What Are The Ingredients For MyoRipped?
Primarily a fat burner, this supplement is suggested to increase energy levels to aid your work out performance.
There are 12 active ingredients specified by the manufacturer, with no indication of the ingredient amounts used. In fact there is no mention of a proprietary blend or formula either, yet no details are revealed so we don’t even know the total serving amount!
Diet pills in capsule form are usually contains between 500-600mg of ingredients. As the maximum daily capsule intake of MyoRipped is 4 capsules you could be taking 1,500 – 2,000mg of the following ingredients:
- Caffeine: One of the few ingredients that has tons of data to support its weight loss properties. From increasing metabolism, suppressing appetite and boosting energy levels, caffeine can also cause negative side effects if particularly sensitive to it. With no indication of how much caffeine is present in this supplement this is a possibility!
- Coleus Forskohlii: A tropical perennial plant related to the typical coleus species that’s been used as an ancient Ayurvedic medicine for centuries with a number of important cellular functions, relaxing muscles and interestingly increasing thyroid function. Some promising studies have supported some of the fat reduction claims but more research is needed.
- Beta Alanine: Said to boost endurance and energy levels by supporting muscule output in high intensity exercise. Studies have supported this claim when taking 4g per day of Beta Alanine, MyoRipped won’t contain ANYWHERE near enough to exert the same effect!
- Tribulus Terrestris: Said to maximum testosterone production and treat conditions such as low energy, depression, impotence and infertility. There is some evidence to support such claims but you require at least 1gm per day of dried root to be effective. It’s highly unlikely that MyoRipped will contain enough!
- Cissus Quadrangularis: Said to act as an appetite suppressant, however rather conveniently they are not letting us know how much of this ingredient is included in the product. This is because the most effective research was done with a proprietary extract of Cissus Quadrangularis of 300mg. Once more, it is highly doubtful whether MyoRipped contains the correct extract or the correct amount to be effective.
- Creatine Ethyl Ester: Good old fashion Creatine has lots of clinical research showing its effectiveness in giving the muscles a boost of energy. Studies looking at the benefits for weight loss are somewhat mixed.
- 20-Hydroxyecdysterone: An ingredient popular with bodybuilders as it’s said to act similar to anabolic steroids, but legally. No indication how much is in MyoRipped and lacks scientific data to suggest will work here.
- Eurycoma Longfolia: Anecdotal evidence suggests it can increase testosterone levels as well as modulate cortisol levels.
- Horny Goat Weed: Said to have a number of benefits from increasing blood flow and acting as an aphrodisiac that could help boost sexual desire and erectile dysfunction. With a somewhat appropriate name, this compound has some evidence to support these claims but little information as to the safety. Again no indication of how much is present in MyoRipped!
- Vitamin B6: Water soluble vitamin that plays an important role in many amino acid reactions and helping release glucose.
- Vitamin B12: A vitamin that’s essential for good health with a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system. Most likely you are consuming enough from a well balanced diet for normal functioning of the body.
- Chromium Picolinate: Seen in many diet pills but with mixed results with some studies showing positive changes and others not, largely discounted now as an effective weight loss ingredient.
So What Does All This Mean?
MyoRipped is not just similar to Testoripped in its marketing approach, but in its ingredients as well! All the ingredients in this men’s diet pill supplement is in Testoripped apart from Cissus Quadrangularis.
A few of the ingredients do look promising though and have been suggested to promote weight loss and aid exercise performance, namely caffeine, Coleus Forskohlii and Beta Alanine.
Does MyoRipped Have Any Side Effects?
Caffeine is present in MyoRipped, in what quantities we just don’t know. This may explain why some consumers have reported side effects such as may cause jitteriness, inability to fall asleep, headaches, rapid heartbeat, and increase blood pressure.
Caution: The manufacturers make it clear that this supplement is NOT for women or for anyone under 18 years of age. We would also add that if you’re sensitive to caffeine then you should probably avoid this supplement!
Any MyoRipped Reviews From Customers?
There are a number of testimonials on the official MyoRipped website, of course all positive extolling the “awesome results” achieved taking the supplement from 3 weeks to 3 months.
Some of the testimonials show before and after pictures, some of which certainly look impressive. We can no way verify the accuracy of these testimonials.
The only independent MyoRipped consumer reviews are from Ripoff Report. These few consumers were certainly not happy about not receiving ANY product after ordering. Whether they have been refunded or sent out their desired order we can’t be sure.
So Does MyoRipped Work?
One of the most misleading claims by MyoRipped is that the product can turn “fat into muscle”. This is a common myth, as body fat and muscle are completely different tissues with different structure and function. So there is no turning fat into muscle and likewise muscle into fat. The fact is that unlike fat cells that act as one unit, muscle can be specifically targeted with training.
Increases in body fat are due to increased calorie intake and excess fat and carbohydrates stored in subcutaneous tissue (under the skin) or adipose tissue (around organs). In contrast, muscle increases when stressed due to exertion and not the outcome of dietary intake. Having less subcutaneous fat will mean you get to see lean muscle though, so they are certainly linked. The ripped guy in the marketing image used by MyoRipped will certainly have a very low body fat percentage and spend a lot of time working out!
Looking at the ingredients, there is no indication how much is used, so even if there were any supporting evidence it would be impossible to know if the quantity was enough.
In summary, no ingredient amounts, no references to clinical studies and flawed statements about turning fat into muscle… we are not confident you will lose much weight with this supplement. With the caffeine content (again unsure how much) you may well experience an increase in energy levels, similar to the effects of drinking caffeine drink!
Where Can I Buy MyoRipped?
The supplement is available directly from the official website or from sites that stock similar products and could well be linked.
MyoRipped bottles cost from $49.95 for one month to $149.95 for 3 bottles with free shipping and typically bundled with another supplement.
What About A Guarantee
There is a 90-day money-back guarantee on offer but there are some complaints on rip-off and scam websites about non-delivery of the supplement. With this in mind we are somewhat concerned how easy it would be to get your money back!
The marketing behind MyoRipped is clever, targeting the issues that many guys will find high on their list. This supplement will certainly appeal to guys to aid their work-out performance to get that ripped look. We can’t help but think its marketing hype and little substance!
There are some outrageous claims made by this supplement. That MyoRipped can turn fat into muscle is just plain wrong! The science just doesn’t support this misleading claim.
With some unhappy consumers, links to untrustworthy retailers, lack of full ingredient profile and misleading claims we wouldn’t recommend this fat burner. And so we reject MyoRipped diet pills.
