Total Science Rush Burn Pros & Effectiveness
Rush Burn is an incredibly interesting specimen of a supplement. While it is considered a stimulant based fat burner at its heart, it can also effectively double as a pre workout formula. Looking at the ingredients, Rush Burn definitely has the stimulant side of things covered with plenty of caffeine, AMP Citrate and Methyl Synephrine (the active compound of bitter orange extract). The addition of the methyl group helps the compound bind better to beta receptors though, which are the range of receptors that assist with fat metabolism.
The acetyl l-carnitine and inulin should also assist with fat loss thanks to its ability to support fat metabolism and better digestive health respectively. The DIM & chrysin were added presumably to aid in hormonal support to assist with increasing lean muscle mass and reducing fat mass. One of the best aspects of the supplement though is its ability to support appetite suppression and Rush Burn is definitely a front runner when it comes to supplements to help keep hunger levels down.
Total Science Rush Burn Negatives & Cons
Perhaps one of the more glaring issues with Rush Burn are some of the doses of the ingredients. While it’s fantastic that Total Science Nutrition has decided to opt for transparent dosing, this has left them flat footed with some of their ingredients. In particular, inulin, acetyl l-carnitine, DIM, coenzyme Q10 and chrysin are all dosed quite low. Good ingredients, but to really make it effective, you would need 2-3 serves, which is not advised due to the amount of stimulants in the supplement. However, you could split your doses throughout the day, you could take an extra serve or two.
Total Science Rush Burn Flavours, Mixability and Taste
Total Science Rush Burn comes in two official flavours: Lemon Lime and Tropical. Both flavours are quite pleasant without any significant aftertaste. There is a slight bitterness, but that just signals the presence of stimulants. Rush Burn mixes well with very little residue or frothing. Overall the product tastes quite nice and should be easy to get through the tub.
Total Science Rush Burn Verdict
The new Total Science Rush Burn is a decent fat burner/pre workout supplement, ideal for those wanting to boost their fat metabolism and weight loss. It’s an excellent product to help with suppressing appetite and boosting energy levels throughout the day, which is important to keep you focused whilst on a calorie deficit diet. Rush Burn can definitely be improved somewhat in terms of dosing, but it is still a solid supplement for the majority of trainers.
