So What Is Spartan Physique Sport Fat Burner and What Are The Ingredients?
Right at the very bottom of the page, we eventually found an ingredients section: No ingredient quantities are listed on the website, but they are listed on the back of the bottle. The back of the bottle also lists slightly different ingredients to the official website, calling into question the professionalism of the company.
Energy and Focus Blend (450 mg)
- Caffeine: Numerous studies have shown that caffeine boosts energy levels and alertness, as well as mildly boosting the metabolism, causing a small increase in the number of calories used by the body. The effects shown in studies are small, and some studies are inconclusive.
- Acacia Rigidula: This plant, originating in Texas, Mexico and Africa, supposedly contains over 40 active compounds, some of which are thought to increase the metabolism, as well as lipolysis in the body. However, there very little investigation has been made into this plant in relation to weight loss, and so our knowledge of the plant is based on speculation rather than clinical results.
- Phenylethylamine: Also known as PEA, this ingredient is derived from the amino acid phenylalanine. It is thought to increase alertness, aid in concentration and focus, and may also enhance mood, which are all arguably traits that dieters need help with in succeeding with their weight loss attempts.
- L-Tyrosine: An amino acid that is a building block of protein, this ingredient is found naturally in many foods including meat and dairy products. Some people use it as an appetite suppressant, but there is little evidence that it is effective for this use. Large doses of tyrosine may be useful for increasing alertness, especially in people who are sleep deprived.
Thermogenic Blend (40 mg)
- Camellia sinensis (what green tea is made of): Green tea is high in a group of antioxidants called catechins. Studies have suggested that catechins and caffeine both increase energy expenditure by boosting the metabolism temporarily. However, the metabolic increase caused by green tea is limited. One study found that the use of green tea was not enough to counteract weight gain following a very low calorie diet.
- Raspberry ketones: Raspberry ketone is the part of a raspberry (and other fruits) that provides the distinctive smell of raspberries. Whilst it can be extracted from the fruit, especially for use in food flavourings and perfume production, it is much cheaper to synthesize it in a lab, especially for the large quantities that are required for use in raspberry ketone supplements. Whilst there is a small amount of evidence that raspberry ketone can cause weight loss in rats, there have never been any human trials on the potential weight loss effects of raspberry ketone. The safety of using such large quantities of raspberry ketone has also never been fully researched.
Lipogenic Blend (4 mg)
- Theobromine: Theobromine is an active compound in Cacao, and is thought to be a mild metabolism booster. However, it is not as strong as caffeine, and the clinical evidence linking it to weight loss is weak.
- Yohimbe: Some studies have noticed increased blood concentrations of free fatty acids in participants who use yohimbe extract, suggesting increased rates of lipolysis. However, the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database has stated that there is insufficient evidence to claim it aids in weight loss.
So What Does All This Mean?
Whilst some of the ingredients in Spartan Physique’s Fat Burner, such as green tea, do offer weight loss benefits, such as boosting the metabolism, other ingredients have not been clinically proven to boost weight loss in humans.
For example, raspberry ketone has never been tested in humans for weight loss, and has been classified as a novelty item by the EU. L-Tyrosine is often used as an appetite suppressant despite there being little evidence it performs this function. Theobromine and Yohimbe may aid weight loss, but the evidence is far from conclusive.
The ingredient quantities provided on the bottle suggest that some ingredients are present in very small quantities.
Does Spartan Physique Sport Fat Burner Have Any Side Effects?
Spartan physique contains caffeine, which can cause headaches, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, dizziness, jitteriness and insomnia.
Yohimbe has been linked with irregular or rapid heartbeat, kidney failure, seizure, and heart attack in rare cases. More common side effects include stomach upset, tremor, sleep problems, anxiety or agitation, high blood pressure, a racing heartbeat, dizziness, stomach problems, drooling, sinus pain, irritability, headache, frequent urination, bloating, rash, nausea, and vomiting. It may also interact with caffeine, increasing the chances of side effects.
Not recommended for children or pregnant women or for people sensitive to caffeine.
Any Spartan Physique Sport Fat Burner Reviews From Customers?
There are numerous customer reviews on Amazon for Spartan Physique Sports Fat Burner. However, one negative review does mention that they were contacted by the company being offered a free bottle in exchange for a review, which may go some way to explaining the large number of reviews. This is especially considering that this appears to be a fairly new product- the earliest reviews are from may 2014, but the majority of reviews are posted from August 2014 onwards, perhaps because the company began their free bottle in exchange for a review offer. Overall, the reviews are generally positive, although there are some customers who lost no weight whilst using the product.
It has been 15 days I have been taking this product. I bought this product because all the reviews had five stars. The company emailed me and told me that they will send a free bottle if I write a review. I wonder if they will still send me the free bottle with less than 5 star review. My wife and I frankly speaking, did not lose a single pound and makes me wonder how only this product has all 5 star ratings.(100%) We took this product with 10 oz of alkaline ionized water every morning for two weeks but absolutely nothing happened at all. Not Even One Single Pound.
I’ve not seen any results or felt any effects taking these. I workout daily and track what I eat. I have hit a wall and had hoped these would kick start me. Nope….and…I’ve actually gained 3lbs since taking them which really baffles me. Will not be buying them again.
It seems that the majority of the five star reviews include no specifics about how much customers have lost, with them merely stating that the product is excellent, and that they have seen great results. Not all of the reviews are verified purchases, which is suspicious, especially as the product is only available on amazon.com.
While using this supplement I did not lose much weight (i’m using it for around two weeks) but it really feels that my energy levels have been increased. I feel more active and energetic overall.
This is a high quality weight loss supplement. I’ve tried it for 1 month and so far I’ve lost more weight than ever before. Make sure stay active as well and eat healthy as it helps a lot as well.
I have been using some pre workout products that gave me energy before my early morning workouts and I found this thermogenic and decided to give it a try. My first bottle is almost over and I’ve been feeling more energy and focus when working out, at the same time it seems that I’m burning fat faster than normal, now I’m 3% down on body fat and also have lost 4 pounds. Going for my second bottle!
Most of the 5 star reviews agree that the product gives them plenty of energy.
So Does Spartan Physique Sport Fat Burner Work?
The customer reviews are generally positive but quite generic. They may have also been written in exchange for a free bottle of the product, and so are more likely to be positive.
The ingredients profile suggests that the product may increase the metabolism, but some of the ingredients, such as green tea, seem to be present in only small quantities. Because of the three proprietary formulas that make up this product, it is quite difficult to determine just how strong this product is. However, there are clearly several ingredients that are not conclusively clinically proven to aid weight loss.
Overall this product may work, but it is not the most potent ingredients list we have ever seen, because of a few ingredients that may not boost weight loss.

What About A Guarantee
According to the website, Spartan Physique offers their customers an unmatched unconditional money-back guarantee.
Overall, we do not believe that Spartan Physique Sport Fat Burner is as good as the manufacturers make out. Whilst some of the ingredients do have potential to increase the metabolism and boost weight loss, there are plenty of others with conflicting or no clinical evidence. The amounts of each ingredient used in this diet pill is also questionable, since some are present in very low quantities.
The website also seems to be fairly unprofessional, with plenty of spelling mistakes, and a different ingredients list to that listed on the label of the actual product. The product is also fairly expensive, even with the discount on the full price.
The customer reviews are generally positive, but as it seems that some of them have been left in exchange for a free bottle of the product, it is hard to trust the accuracy of these reviews.
In general, we would recommend that customers do not purchase Spartan Physique Sport Fat Burner, and that instead they look for a more reputable and well-established company.
