MuscleMeds are one of the more underrated supplement companies around, often overlooked for flashier brands such as Optimum Nutrition, MusclePharm and Muscletech. The company’s story is much like that of its leading spokesperson and sponsored athlete; IFBB Pro Kai Greene, who has consistently been seen as one of the underdogs of the industry. Respected he may be, but the man just can’t seem to catch a break and win the coveted Mr Olympia title. MuscleMeds products suffer a similar fate; whilst respected, they’re perhaps not the first choice of many trainers. But you can’t deny the company is innovative – after all they were the first people to bring out a 100% beef protein powder. One of their latest releases will be the fat burner MuscleMeds Phenbuterol.
MuscleMeds Phenbuterol Highlights
- Potent new fat burner from the makers of Carnivor
- Pill form supplement for extreme fat burning and appetite suppression
- Strong formula designed for the seasoned trainer and supplement user
MuscleMeds Phenbuterol Ingredients & Dosage
MuscleMeds latest supplement Phenbuterol has been a long time coming with very few supplements released by the company in quite a long time. The new fat burner is a collection of common and more novel fat burning compounds contained in a matrix known as the UCP-1 Fat Burning Catalyst. These ingredients include:
- Caffeine Anhydrous
- Yerba Mate (also known as ilex paraguariensis)
- Advantra Z™ (a mix of ingredients including citrus aurantium, n-methyltyramine, hordenine, octopamine and tyramine)
- Grains of Paradises (also known as aframomum melegueta)
- Rauwolfia serpentina (provides yohimbine)
Phenbuterol will be available in a 30 capsule package with a recommended serving size of 1 capsule per day. Each capsule contains 595mg of active ingredients.
MuscleMeds Phenbuterol Pros & Effectiveness
MuscleMeds has always been known for making some strong supplements, especially in the more specialised categories such as pre-workouts and fat burners. Phenbuterol is no different featuring a select range of potent fat burning compounds, many of them stimulants in nature and assisting with the suppression of appetite, fat metabolism and impeding the regain of weight. These ingredients include caffeine, yerba mate, the Advantra Z matrix, and rauwolfia serpentina. Grains of Paradise is a spice similar to that of ginger, which has been shown to be able to affect fat mass, however only by augmenting or increasing the effects of cold exposure on metabolic rate. Interestingly, Grains of Paradise has also traditionally been used as an aphrodisiac.
MuscleMeds Phenbuterol Cons
The biggest issue with Phenbuterol is that it contains the active compound yohimbine, which is banned in Australia. The ingredient itself is extremely effective as a fat loss compound, but also acts as an aphrodisiac, however has been considered unsafe, due to the potential for harm when overused. As such, Phenbuterol will need to be reformulated just like Muscletech's Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite had to if it ever has the chance of being sold in Australia. The only other issue with the supplement is that it contains a lot of stimulants and unlike powdered supplements where you can adjust the initial dose, it’s harder and inconvenient to break up a capsule just to have a smaller dose. As such, this supplement is not for the faint hearted or those who are new to stimulated supplements.
MuscleMeds Phenbuterol Taste & Mixability
MuscleMeds Phenbuterol is only currently available in pill form. However, the company may also choose to reformulate the product into a powder form for easier compliance in Australia and New Zealand.
MuscleMeds Phenbuterol Verdict
It’s been a long time since MuscleMeds released a brand new supplement, so it’s definitely exciting to see movement coming from Kai Greene’s sponsors. Phenbuterol is a potent fat loss supplement designed for those who are used to stimulants and those who have trained and supplemented for awhile. If you’re new to supplements or have just started training, it may just be on the strong side.
