FAQs About Thermogenics and Fat Burners

What is a thermogenic?

Thermogenics are formulas that incite thermogenesis. Thermogenesis means to produce heat and is a normal by-product of metabolic processes. The production of heat can promote an increase in energy (Busbridge, N et al. 1993). A thermogenic supplement may help to accelerate your results.

Busbridge, N et al. 1993, ‘Thermogenic Effects of Cytokines: Methods and Mechanisms, Methods in Neurosciences,https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S1043947113700119

What are the different types of thermogenic supplements?

There is a range of different thermogenic supplements that can help you achieve your body goals. These include thermogenic formulas that can be taken before training to create heat and kick your body into gear. Carnitine formulas may support the transportation of fatty acids to the cell's mitochondria, where they are oxidised and turned into energy. There are green tea supplements and lean protein powders that are designed with your body goals in mind, as well as CLA supplements to support your body goals too.

What are the active ingredients in thermogenic supplements?

The active ingredients in thermogenic supplements are generally Caffeine, Green Tea Extract, protein powder, soluble fibre, Yohimbe, CLA, and more (Jewell, T. 2020)

What are the benefits of thermogenic supplements?

If you’re trying to manage your body goals and struggling to reach your goals, thermogenic supplements can add some extra fuel when consumed in accordance with a balanced diet and training regime.

Who is most likely to use thermogenic supplements?

If you’re trying to manage your body goals and are unable to do so through dieting and exercising alone, a thermogenic supplement may provide additional support and may help you step closer towards those goals.

Who should avoid using thermogenic supplements?

If you have any allergies to any of the active ingredients or are already very lean/low on fat, then a thermogenic supplement will not be effective for you. If you have any medical conditions, thermogenic supplements may not be right for you, so you should always consult your GP before taking them.

What are the risks of taking the thermogenic supplements?

If you’re consuming thermogenic supplements with a balanced diet and exercise routine, and in accordance with the instructions on the nutritional panel, then you should not experience any side effects. However, if you’re taking excess caffeine on top of these supplements (which commonly use caffeine as a key ingredient), then you may experience side effects.

Are thermogenics bad for your liver?

If you’re consuming fat burners with a balanced diet and exercise routine, and in accordance with the instructions on the nutritional panel, then you should not experience any issues with your liver. However, if you’re consuming too many different thermogenics, this can lead to liver problems, including potential acute liver failure (Jewell, T. 2020)

Can thermogenics affect your period?

There are a number of factors that may affect a woman's menstrual cycle, from pregnancy, breastfeeding, menopause, other medical conditions and lifestyle choices. The female body requires a particular amount of vitamins, minerals, and fats to maintain regular menstruation. While thermogenic supplements shouldn’t affect your period if you’re consuming a nutritional diet, if you’re using them in place of a balanced diet, then you may find yourself lacking micronutrients that are essential for healthy menstruation (Robertson, I. 2022).

Can thermogenics cause bloating?

If you’re consuming thermogenics with a balanced diet and exercise routine and in accordance with the instructions on the nutritional panel, then you should not experience any bloating. If you’re consuming too much protein, then you may experience bloating due to the protein, sugar and fibre content (Moore, S. 2020).

Can thermogenics cause acne?

Thermogenics shouldn’t cause any acne, particularly if they’re consumed in accordance with the nutritional label on the back of the product. If you are consuming a protein-based fat burner that is high in lactose and sugar, then it is possible for symptoms of acne to appear, but if that is the case, you may want to check with a GP, as you may have an intolerance or allergy to dairy or lactose products.
