By Michael Brooker - March 28, 2018
Fat Burners are big news. When it comes time to shred and get those muscles popping, fat burners are the product sitting in your cupboard or on your bench that is going to help you get you there.
It can be confusing taking a look at the range available though. Which one has the best ingredients, that quintessential mix (and quantities of each component) that is really going to get you results?
Today we’re taking a closer look at two of the biggest names in the game: Platinum Labs Optiburn vs. EHP OxyShred. These two powerhouses are on the must-have lists of people around the world that are looking to get sculptured. So let’s take a closer look at each in turn and then give you our verdict on who we agree is the winner in this particular battle.
EHP OxyShred has been around for some time now and has been a popular choice for consumers. The product stakes itself as an Ultra Thermogenic with 100% natural flavour, available in a range of 6 different flavours – Guava, Wild Melon, Kiwi Strawberry, Pink Grapefruit, Mango, and Passionfruit. Each double scoop of OxyShred boasts that you’ll get the effects of a boosted metabolism and fat blasting formula without having the jitters or a calorific intake.
So, what’s in OxyShred? This supplement contains the regular list of vitamins and minerals you’d expect, like Vitamins C, B6, and B12, Niacin, and Riboflavin. The makeup includes their own proprietary blend of ingredients like Acetyl L-Carnitine, Conjugated Linoleic Acid, Grapefruit Seed Extract, Green Coffee Bean Extract, and other fat burners. For mood enhancers, there’s L-Tyrosine, Taurine, and more. The exact mix of the supplement is unknown.
Effects vary with some consumers saying it does nothing and others having adverse effects and mood destabilisation, and others saying it's their favourite thermogenic. However, one thing stands out in online reviews – it tastes good.
Platinum Labs Optiburn
In the other corner, we have Platinum Labs OptiBurn Thermogenic Powder, which promises five benefits – thermogenesis, to burn fat, hunger management, fat transport, mood enhancement, and water flushing.
The great benefit of Optiburn is that you know exactly what you are getting in each serve. Platinum Labs do not use proprietary blends, so you know that you’re getting exactly 250mg of Raspberry Ketones, 2000mg of Acetyl-L—Carnitine, and 200mg of green tea extract, for example. Other goodies in Optiburn include taurine, conjugated linoleic acid, and dandelion root extract.
It’s rated highly among users and is known for being very effective at working as an appetite suppressant, which helps in the weight loss journey.
So, with all that said, what’s our opinion on the matter? Which wins in this duel? We like Optiburn as you know what you’re getting. Proprietary blends are a bit of a mystery and make it difficult to understand precisely what you’re taking.
For the scientists among us, full disclosure makes more sense and makes it easier to measure if you want to try something different or mix with other products.
