Testing Results and Ratings
We reviewed American Metabolix Exile Super Shock on four categories. We first start by looking at it’s ingredient profile. This portion of the review looks at the ingredients used in the making of this fat burner. We look into each ingredients effective use and determine if it was a quality selection for the product.
We then look at the dosage of the fat burner. Are they using the ingredients at effective doses? It’s one thing to select awesome ingredients, it’s another to make sure they are being dosed where they are meant to be effective.
We then look at effectiveness. This is generally an extension of the profile and dosage section. The higher quality ingredients used at proper dosages, the more effective that the fat burner will be.
Finally, we talk about value. Value is the combination of profile, dosage, and effectiveness in relation to cost. Another part of value are the competitors and other versions of fat burners on the market.
Exile Super Shock uses stimulants in this extreme fat burner. Exile SS uses a proprietary blend (not a fan) of Caffeine Anhydrous, Dicaffeine Malate, Higenamine HCL, Phenylethylamine HCL, Hordenine HCL, Garcinia Cambogia Fruit and Rauwolscine.
Caffeine Anhydrous and Dicaffeine Malate provide a nice boost of energy which increases your body’s overall metabolism through increasing your body’s temperature (thermogenesis). Higenamine (similar to ephedra), Phenylethylamine HCL, Hordenine HCL, Garcinia Cambogia Fruit and Rauwolscine all act together to speed up your body’s metabolism, inhibit your ability to store fat and limiting your appetite. Collectively these will lead to weight loss and fat burning capabilities.
This is a solid selection of stims to product fat burning effects.
My one issue with this product comes here in the dosage department. Due to the fact that this is a proprietary blend, I am not sure what I am getting for doses.
Looking at the overall dosage amount of 612mg for the blend, I feel like this is close to being properly dosed based on the info available on the ingredients used. Some of the ingredients have not been studied enough to have proper dosage amounts yet. However, due to the claims that you are not to take more than 2 capsules in 24-hours as a warning that is a good sign that this is dosed efficiently.
Whenever I take a thermogenic/fat burner I look for my body temp to increase significantly to the point I actually sweat and for me to obtain more definition in my abs after a “cycle.” I would take Exile SS first thing in the morning and go to the gym. I can say without a doubt that my body temp increased and the sweat poured more than normal. After the 30-days on this I was more defined in my abs. This was combined with a proper diet and exercise plan as well. Overall I thought this was an effective OTC fat burner.
There are a lot of OTC fat burners that are just pure garbage. As I mentioned earlier, I did obtain positive effects from this product in terms of increased body temp and a leaner self after 30-days when combined with proper diet and exercise. This product retails for around $40. Some of the most popular fat burners with claims to be the “best” retail for around $35-$40. This is priced right. I think if this was around $35 it would be higher value to you, but at $40 and the fact it doesn’t include banned substances, it is a good value.
