What are Burn Bullets?
Burn Bullets is a weight loss supplement aimed at all men and women who want to lose weight.
If the marketing material is to be believed, thousands of happy customers have already experienced “amazing body transformations by using Burn Bullets.
The formulation is vegan-friendly and dairy-free and it does not contain any gluten, soy, or GMO.
That’s going to tick a lot of the right boxes for many people who wish to lose weight and have very specific dietary needs.
Unfortunately, the formulation is not stimulant-free.
So, if the idea of stimulants in diet pills does not sit well with you, now’s a good time to go searching for an alternative product instead.
Who Makes Burn Bullets?
Burn Bullets is one of several health and fitness products marketed by Grilla Fitness. It’s not a supplement manufacturer.
Grilla Fitness is a Vitamin and Minerals store based in Romford, England.
The company also has a range of branded gym wear and appears to be moving into in-gym accessories.
At the time of this review, the only accessories available were shakers and water bottles but it seems likely more will follow.
Grilla Fitness is a Limited Company. It was incorporated in January 2014.
It’s owned by Dino and Georgio Georgiades, whose names will be familiar to all fans of the TV show, The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE) because both twins were early stars of the show.
Burn Bullets Benefits
- Supports your metabolism
- Boosts energy, concentration, and alertness while working out
- Can be taken by almost anyone as a part of a healthy lifestyle
None of the claims made are overly wild and the interesting thing is Grilla Fitness does not make any direct claims that the formulation can help you to lose weight.
Let’s look at a statement made on the Burn Bullets sales page:
“Losing weight, building muscle or staying healthy – we have the supplements you need to reach your targets.”
The company says it has “the supplements”. It doesn’t actually claim Burn Bullets can do any of these things.
How Do Burn Bullets Work?
Grilla Fitness doesn’t really provide much information about the way the product works.
However, the formulation contains two stimulants and both of them are good at providing extra energy.
They can boost concentration and alertness too.
We also know the formulation aims to increase metabolism. This is something most fat burners try to do.
Metabolism is the process that extracts energy from food. It also helps you to put that energy to work.
When metabolism increases, you burn extra calories. This can help create the energy shortage the body has to experience before it can begin burning its stores of fat.
Correct Dosage and Other Usage Considerations
The dose is one capsule, two times per day. No further usage instructions are provided.
Burn Bullets Ingredient Profile
One capsule provides:
- Vitamin B6 (1.4 mg)
- Chromium (50 µg)
- Caffeine (100mg)
- L-Carnitine Tartrate (100 mg)
- L-Tyrosine (100 mg)
- Capsicum (50 mg)
- L-Tryptophan (50 mg)
- Citrus Aurantium (50 mg)
- Green Tea 4:1 Extract (50 mg)
- Naringin Extract (50 mg)
- Bioperine (2.5 mg)
Burn Bullets contain 11 ingredients. All of them are natural and a few of them have good credentials as weight-loss providers.
If you are eating a balanced diet, you are unlikely to be short of Vitamin B6 but it’s still a worthwhile inclusion.
You can find Vitamin B6 in most brands of energy drink because it helps with energy metabolism.
A lot of diet pills have chromium in them. It’s a mineral you can get from many foods including broccoli and potatoes.
Diet pill manufacturers favor it because it can modulate blood sugar and insulin levels.
Diabetics sometimes take chromium for the same reason.
If blood sugar levels rise too fast or become overly high after eating, the liver releases insulin to bring blood sugar levels down.
If the levels drop too low (crash), and they often do, it can cause you to experience carb cravings and desires for sugary food.
Grilla Fitness is obviously using chromium in Burn Bullets to try and prevent this scenario from happening.
Caffeine is another regular diet pill inclusion. It provides energy, which can help prevent diet-related fatigue.
Caffeine also boosts concentration and can make you feel more mentally alert.
In addition to these abilities, caffeine is also a proven fat burner that works by increasing metabolism and thermogenesis.
We’ve already touched on the importance of metabolism earlier in this review so no further explanation should be necessary but you may not be familiar with the term thermogenesis.
Thermogenesis is a process that causes your body to lose energy as heat.
Ingredients that increase thermogenesis heat up your body and cause you to lose more energy still. (source)
This ingredient provides carnitine. Some research shows carnitine can be good for elevating the mood. It is also shown to improve the immune system
That could make it useful for anyone whose diet is getting them down. Other research suggests supplementing with carnitine is a good way to delay the onset of fatigue.
An ingredient that’s popular with sports supplement manufacturers. They use it to boost mental alertness. That can be handy when you are training hard in a gym.
Capsicum red pepper extracts are present in many of the best diet pills.
Red peppers from the capsicum family provide capsaicin and research shows it can support improvements in weight-loss in a couple of ways.
The first way capsaicin supports weight is by controlling hunger.
That’s an important ability for a diet pill ingredient because any endeavor to lose weight requires you to begin eating less.
This invariably causes hunger along with all the misery a nagging stomach entails.
However, although hunger suppression is important, capsicum tends to get more respect for its proven capabilities as a thermogenic fat burner.
An amino acid. Research suggests supplementing with L-Tryptophan may boost physical endurance while also reducing fatigue.
It’s more common to sports supplements than weight loss aids, but its presence could still be seen to add value.
Citrus Aurantium is a species of citric fruit. It’s often added to diet pills and sports supplements, often under the name “bitter orange“.
Extracts from the fruit provide the stimulant synephrine. It’s good for boosting energy and is a good natural fat burner too.
However, the Burn Bullets fat-burning formulation also contains caffeine. Adding a second stimulant may not be wise. Especially when the second stimulant is a powerful one like synephrine.
Green Tea 4:1 Extract
Green tea is one of the most popular natural weight loss ingredients available today.
Grilla Fitness is using a 4:1 extract that’s concentrated to be four times normal potency.
That means the 50 mg the formulation provides packs the same power as 200 mg of normal-strength green tea extract.
Green tea is a fat burner that works.
Many clinical trials show this is true. The fat-burning capabilities of green tea are due to its ability to increase metabolism and thermogenesis.
Like metabolism, thermogenesis is a normal biological process. It causes the body to generate heat, which is then lost into the atmosphere.
When you lose more energy via thermogenesis it can increase the energy shortage in the body causing a greater need to burn fat.
Although green tea naturally contains a little caffeine, research shows the fat burning ability of green tea has more to do with the catechin epigallocatechin gallate than it does with the stimulant.
A grapefruit extract that enhances the effects of caffeine. Pairing the two can increase the benefits caffeine provides.
Unfortunately, the pairing can also increase the likelihood of side effects.
A branded black pepper extract that offers superior potency. Black pepper contains piperine. It’s an alkaloid that improves the bioavailability of other supplement ingredients.
Burn Bullets Customer Reviews
At the time of this review, the Grilla Fitness website was showing 80 customer reviews and most of them were 5-star.
Let’s not forget this is a company website.
It belongs to the people who are selling the product.
They have something to gain. It’s a very biased source. I only trust customer reviews available on third-party sites. I suggest you do the same.
Known Side Effects
Burn Bullets contains stimulants. That means side effects cannot be ruled out.
If you look on the Grilla Fitness website, you will see the nutrition information states each capsule provides 100mg of caffeine.
That’s the same amount of caffeine as you’d get by drinking a normal-strength cup of coffee.
Most people can handle 100 mg of caffeine without experiencing any negative effects.
However, if you zoom in on the label embedded into the same page, you will see the bottle states there is 161 mg of caffeine per capsule.
That’s 61% more. Somebody needs to give their head a shake and decide which figure it is.
Let’s not forget the formulation also contains naringin, which can amplify the effects of caffeine. There’s some citrus aurantium in there too.
Although the customer feedback available on the Grilla Fitness website does not suggest any previous users have experienced any side effects, it’s important not to lose sight of the fact the site exists to sell products not to put people off buying them.
At least one person has experienced side effects with this product and her frightening experience made the news.
In July 2015, Manchurian hairdresser, Naomi Leach, had such a severe reaction to the product it necessitated a hospital visit.
The doctor treating Naomi said the reaction was probably due to the presence of Brazilian cocoa extract.
The Georgiades brothers were quick to show their concern and offer Naomi support.
They could find no problem with the pills and said the reaction may have been due to Naomi being hypersensitive to one of the ingredients.
The present formulation does not list Brazilian cocoa extract among the ingredients so it appears the brothers may have had it removed.
Where to Buy Burn Bullets
You can buy Burn Bullets directly from the Grilla Fitness website.
At just £29.99 for a 30-day supply of pills (60 capsules), it’s a pretty cheap diet pill to buy. Shipping costs are extra but won’t break the bank.
Grilla Fitness does not provide its customers with a money-back guarantee.
Burn Bullets Review Conclusion
Burn Bullets contains green tea and capsicum extract and the amounts provided are okay.
If you use this supplement alongside a sensible low-calorie diet, it should provide improvements in metabolism and thermogenesis that should help you lose weight faster.
The two stimulants it provides (caffeine and synephrine) should provide further fat burning support.
Unfortunately, the presence of two such potent stimulants also has the potential to cause side effects.
The Burn Bullets formulation could be greatly improved by removing one of the stimulants and possibly ditching the naringin.
Such an action would greatly reduce the likelihood of negative issues.
It may also impact the formulations ability to boost energy but Burn Bullets appears to be primarily aimed at dieters, not people who need extra energy in the gym.
As far as the price goes, Burn Bullets is pretty cheap but it would have been nice to see a money-back guarantee.
As a fat burning supplement, the product should work but it’s probably best not to try and use it without checking with a doctor first.
