What is Fat Blaster Max?
Fat Blaster Max is dietary supplement that claims to promote weight-loss by boosting your energy levels, raising stamina and suppressing hunger.
Fat Blaster Max is actually an award-winning supplement.
It won the Australian Journal of Pharmacy Award for the best over-the-counter health product, although independent confirmation of this is hard to find.
What’s in the formula and how does it claim to work?
The are 20 ingredients within Fat Blaster Max formula which briefly includes Svetol (Green Coffee Bean Extract), Gurana, Psyllium Husks, Elemental Chromium, Thiamine, Riboflavin and Cyanacobalamin.
The method by which Fat Blaster Max offers to help with weight-loss is thermogenesis, whereby the body temperature is slightly raised to aid with the stimulation of energy levels and the burning of fat.
Clinical trials have been a little hit and miss
Svetol, or Green Coffee Bean Extract, has been praised repeatedly by multiple sources for its effects on metabolism, although the success of the substance remains under review.
Clinical trials on Svetol have been carried out, and the results have been extremely varied. One study claimed that users of Svetol Green Coffee lost twice as much weight as a placebo group.
Another study conducted by the International Journal of Obesity Related Disorders, stated that the placebo group and the group using Svetol lost the same amount of weight over six months of use. See one study here – http://www.svetol.com/sites/default/files/20070222_clinical_study_svetol.pdf
As to the other ingredients, Guarana is a natural herb with high levels of caffeine. An effective link between caffeine and the thermogenic process has been well-documented.
Psyllium Husks are a water-absorption ingredient with helps provide a feeling of being full. It also decelerates the gastric process and aids in stabilising blood-sugar levels, as well as lowering cholesterol. Chromium is another hunger suppressor. It maintains insulin and blood glucose levels.

What’s the verdict – is it recommended?
Overall rating : (2/5)
While there are various independent studies on some of the included ingredients, the question remains whether there is enough of anything here to really be effective.
Twenty different fat burners have been crammed into just one capsule, seemingly relying on a “throw everything at it” approach to encouraging weight loss.
While this sounds good on paper, in reality it is impossible to provide any meaningful amount of any one ingredient, most of which simply contain lots of caffeine. In our opinion, there are better options available which cost much less and feature effective amounts of proven fat burning compounds.
Recommended alternative – Garcinia Cambogia
Garcinia Cambogia is one ingredient which has sparked a media frenzy in recent months. This natural fruit extract can help you burn more calories and suppress cravings for sugary and fatty foods.
