What do you look for in a fat burner? When searching for the right fat burner, we often lean into the customer reviews, see what’s trending, and stick to what we can feel is working. In this post, we’re going over a newly trending fat burner, YouTheory Daily Fat Burner. Here, you’ll find answers to what it is, what’s in it, and more!
As the name suggests, this is a fat burner product. But, unlike many of the popular fat burners we review, the Daily Fat Burner from YouTheory is a low-stim, thermogenic fat burner. Unfortunately, the only energy source of this fat burner is in a proprietary blend, so we can’t determine exactly how low the dosage is. But, in compared to other popular thermogenic fat burners like Lipodrene with Ephedra, Hellfire Fat Burner, or EPH 100—it’s low.
When you look at the formula, the first ingredient listed is chromium, which is an essential trace mineral. Chromium Picolinate has mixed feedback from researchers in regards to weight loss. While there may be some evidence of it aiding in reducing appetite and cravings (1), overall research on the impact of chromium on weight loss is questionable. (2) However, this ingredient may be beneficial in improving blood sugar levels. (3)
Sinetrol® Citrus Fruit Blend:
This patented proprietary blend features extracts from various of citrus fruits, including Blood Orange, Grapefruit, and Sweet Orange. The bioactive polyphenols that come from these fruits include naringin, hesperidin, and neo-hesperidin. These bioflavonoids may aid in these citrus extracts’ lipolytic properties and bioavailability. (4) In addition to these properties, citrus extracts may assist with reducing blood pressure through their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and supports blood sugar level control. (5,6,7,8,9)
The Sinetrol® blend also features Guarana Extract, the only stimulant in this formula. It has benefits, such as aiding fatigue relief and improving focus. Still, it is also typically standardized for caffeine. So you’re getting the fat-burning effects through this mechanism. Guarana may aid in weight loss by boosting your metabolism. (10,11,12)
Our final ingredient in YouTheory Daily Fat Burner is a popular thermogenic, Capsimax®. This patented ingredient is popular in specifically thermogenic fat burners. The ingredient capsaicin is a major active compound of chili pepper and cayenne peppers. Additionally, this ingredient may support other things like inflammation reduction through its antioxidant properties. And as a thermogenic, capsaicin may increase energy expenditure. (13,14)
As the Daily Fat Burner is not a heavy, stimulant-based fat burner, you could expect more of an emphasis on the thermogenic properties.
As a whole, this fat burner may support:
- Natural-Feel Energy Boost†
- Promote Lipolysis†
- Enhance Thermogenesis†
- Reduce Oxidative Stress And Inflammation†
How To Take YouTheory Daily Fat Burner:
The manufacturers recommend taking one (1) capsule twice daily with food.
Here, we’ll dive into the science a bit more, so feel free to skip ahead.
The body uses white adipose tissue (WAT) to store fat and for whole-body energy homeostasis. Through lipolysis, WAT can release fatty acids. Sinetrol® assists with increasing resting energy expenditure resulting in adipose beiging benefits. The ratio between WAT and brown adipose tissue (BAT) plays a critical role in regulating energy expenditure by inhibiting phosphodiesterase PDE-4. PDE-4 is the enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP). By inhibiting PDE-4, cAMP levels increase and can increase lipolysis rate through triglyceride breakdown. As a result, energy expenditure increases. So far, there are three clinical studies on Sinetrol®, all of which support the mechanism of action and bring strong results in weight loss. (9,15,16,17)
It is important to note these studies lasted for 12 weeks, with some with a larger dosage than recommended with YouTheory Fat Burner.
Customer Review By Aly: “I love this product! I am very sensitive to caffeine so finding a fat burner that doesn’t overwhelm me has been a struggle. But, this fat burner really helps me with reducing my appetite and boosting energy!”
Customer Review By Hannah: “I was looking for a fat burner that had no caffeine, or ephedra. I found this one and haven’t looked back. This works so well for me. I do not get the jitters, or a crash. Much recommended!”
In this section, we’re going to dive into three products from Life Extension that are similar to YouTheory Daily Fat Burner:
Life Extension AMPK Metabolic Activator:
Our first product comparison is with AMPK Metabolic Activator, which features two ingredients different from YouTheory Daily Fat Burner, Calcium, and Actiponin® Gynostemma Extract. It only indirectly shares Hesperidin as this ingredient is one of the primary active compounds from Sinetrol®, along with Naringin.
Calcium has numerous functions, such as building and maintaining bones and teeth, blood clotting, transmitting nerve impulses, and regulating the heart’s rhythm. But, current research also suggests that it may assist in reducing body weight. (18)
As you can imagine, from being one of the primary active compounds in Sinetrol®, hesperidin may promote similar effects on its own. For example, one study’s results suggest a combination of 500-mg G-hesperidin and 75-mg caffeine for 12 weeks may significantly reduce abdominal fat, body weight, and BMI in subjects with a moderately high BMI. While other studies found hesperidin may help regulate inflammation and improve insulin resistance. (19,20,21)
Actiponin® Gynostemma Extract:
Similar to Sinetrol®, several clinical trials and research studies support Actiponin’s® anti-obesity effects. Some physiological benefits include reducing body fat mass, improving blood sugar and cholesterol levels, and even supporting exercise performance.(22,23,24)
How To Take Life Extension AMPK Metabolic Activator:
The manufacturers recommend taking one (1) tablet daily, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
Customer Review By Vinny: “When I first began taking this product, I noticed the appetite suppression benefits right away. The results that I have been getting from this product have been great! I have slowly been getting back into shape thanks to this product.”
Life Extension Mediterranean Trim:
Next, we have Life Extension Mediterranean Trim, which features Sinetrol® at the exact dosage as the Daily Fat Burner. The only difference between these formulas is the lack of Chromium and Capsimax®. Additionally, the manufacturers indicate the value of caffeine derived from the Guarana Extract (10mg).
How To Take Life Extension Mediterranean Trim:
The manufacturers recommend taking one (1) capsule twice daily at breakfast and lunch, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner. Each serving contains approximately 10 mg of caffeine (the amount found in about 1/4 cup of brewed green tea).
Life Extension Waistline Control:
Our last similar product from Life Extension is Waistline Control™, which only features its patented proprietary blend, Meratrim®. Meratrim® contains two ingredients that total 400mg. One study’s results suggest Meratrim® is effective for weight management and can improve other health markers like blood sugar and cholesterol levels. (25,26,27)
How To Take Life Extension Waistline Control:
The manufacturers recommend taking one (1) capsule twice daily 30 minutes before meals, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
Customer Review By Quin: “Its only been a couple of weeks, but I do see a difference! I do follow a healthy diet-exercise routine, but definitely feel this is giving me an edge. Going to get another bottle!”
