When your weight loss has hit a plateau, a thermogenic fat burner can help kick start those results again. Fortunately (or unfortunately), there are tons of options for fat burners. But that’s where we come in. In this post, we’re going over a fat burner that’s rising in popularity, Burn-XT. We will be going through the formula, reviews, and how it compares to other popular fat burners.

Section Divider: What Is Burn-XT

What Is Burn-XT

Burn-XT Thermogenic Fat Burner is a fat burner from Jacked-Factory. It features a fully disclosed label with research-backed ingredients. Being a thermogenic fat burner means the ingredients in Burn-XT are intended to promote thermogenesis or calorie burning. But, according to Jacked-Factory Burn-XT has more potential than just this.

Burn-XT may also:

  • Improve Metabolism†
  • Increase Energy†
  • Suppress Appetite†
  • Maintain Muscle†

With that, let’s dive into the formula!

Section Divider: Burn-XT Formula Breakdown

Burn-XT Formula Breakdown

Burn XT Thermogenic Fat Burner

1 Capsule (60 Servings) 2 Capsules (30 Servings)
Acetyl-L-Carnitine HCl 350mg 700mg
Green Tea Leaf Extract 225mg 450mg
Caffeine Anhydrous 135mg 270mg
Capsimax® Cayenne Pepper Fruit Extract 25mg 50mg
Bioperine® 2.5mg 5mg

The first thing to note is the servings. Burn-XT features 60 to 30 servings per container depending on how many capsules you choose to take. This is important when comparing formulas that are only 1 capsule a day as these formulas tend to be stronger.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine:

Our first ingredient in Burn XT is Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) at 350mg per capsule. Interestingly, ALCAR is often more popular in pre workouts or focus-oriented products. This is because of its neuroprotective properties and ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. In contrast, L-Carnitine is a different version of this amino acid and is more popular for weight loss purposes. Additionally, most studies using either ALCAR or L-Carnitine tend to use larger dosages, between 1-3 grams daily. So while ALCAR is a research-backed ingredient, it is effective for weight loss and, at 350/700mg, would need more research. (1,2,3,4,5)


Green Tea Leaf Extract:

The next ingredient is Green Tea Leaf Extract at 225mg per capsule. Green Tea Extract is a popular and common ingredient in fat burners. And there are lots of studies that support its benefits with anti-obesity properties. However, it is often debated how significant these benefits are. Additionally, because Green Tea Leaf Extract can include other compounds, stimulatory effects may occur. Some other benefits could include the following:

  • Increasing Thermogenesis
  • Improve Exercise Performance
  • Reduce Visceral Fat (belly fat) & Inflammation

Dosage ranges for Green Tea Extract often vary from 100-800mg in studies for weight loss. So a dose between 225/450mg is on the lower end of the spectrum but may support some of the weight loss benefits. (6,7,8,9,10)


Caffeine Anhydrous:

Outside the natural compounds in Green Tea Extract, Caffeine is the direct stimulant in Burn-XT. This formula has either 135mg of Caffeine or 270mg, depending on how many caps you take. Your tolerance to Caffeine and stimulants, in general, would be the biggest determinant for if you should move up to 2 caps a day. At 135mg, Burn-XT contains the equivalent of ~1.5 cups of coffee (~95mg of Caffeine in one 8oz of coffee). At two caps, that’s almost 3 cups of coffee. So if you find yourself sensitive to caffeine after 2 cups of coffee, you shouldn’t move up to 2 caps.

Caffeine is one of the most well-researched ingredients in dietary supplements. As far as weight loss goes, dosages between 5-7mg/kg during aerobic exercise may aid your body in increasing the utilization of fat as a fuel. (11) Caffeine may also increase appetite suppression and boost performance. (12,13) And because of its role as a Central Nervous System (CNS) stimulant, it may also promote attention and improves mood. (14)


Capsimax® Cayenne Pepper Fruit Extract:

Our next ingredient is a popular thermogenic, Capsimax®. This patented ingredient is popular, specifically in thermogenic fat burners. The ingredient capsaicin is a major active compound of chili pepper and cayenne peppers. Like Green Tea Extract, this ingredient may also support other things like inflammation reduction through its antioxidant properties. like as an antioxidant. And in addition to this, capsaicin may also be a potent thermogenic and increase energy expenditure. (15,16) Unlike the other ingredients, there isn’t as much research on this ingredient/patent in regard to dosages.


Bioperine®:

Our final ingredient in Burn-XT is Bioperine®. This ingredient is popular in dietary supplements in general, and for a good reason. Bioperine® comes from black pepper, is often a bioavailability enhancer in formulas. Meaning it may improve the bioavailability/effectiveness of the other ingredients in the formula (17). We typically see Bioperine® dosed at 5mg, so one capsule may not get full effectiveness from this ingredient.


How To Take Burn-XT:

The manufacturer recommends beginners initially take one capsule per day with at least one glass of water and a meal for at least one week to assess their tolerance. You may also want to increase daily water consumption while using this product to avoid dehydration. After you’ve assessed your tolerance, you can take one capsule with a glass of water and a meal two times per day. The manufacturers recommend not exceeding this dosage.

Section Divider: Burn-XT Comparisons

Similar Products

Now that we’ve gone over what’s in Burn-XT let’s dive into the comparisons and alternatives!

Chromium (as Chromium Picolinate) 200mcg ×
Acetyl-L-Carnitine HCl 500mg
N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine 150mg ×
Paradoxine® 25mg ×
Bioperine® 5mg

Our first comparison is with Lipo-6 Black Stim-Free. Because this is a stimulant-free formula, this is a great option for anyone who finds Burn-XT to be too strong caffeine-wise. However, that means this won’t be a great option alone for other individuals with a stronger tolerance to stimulants. Instead, if you want to amp up your thermogenesis with a different fat burner or a pre workout, this is a great stackable option.

There are only two shared ingredients between Burnt-XT and Lipo-6 Black-Stim Free, Acetyl-L-Carnitine HCl, and Bioperine®. But Lipo-6 Black Stim-Free also features a fully-disclosed label and 60 servings. However, Lipo-6 Black Stim-Free is a one-pill-a-day formula.

When you compare the dosages, Burn-XT provides about 737.5mg per capsule of active ingredients. Whereas Lipo-6 Black Stim-Free provides 680.2mg of active ingredients. However, in both formulas, ALCAR is the ingredient with the most volume (500mg in Lipo-6 Black Stim-Free and 350mg in Burn-XT). Additionally, when you take out the stimulants from Burn-XT (Caffeine and Green Tea Extract), there is only 377.5mg of active ingredients per capsule. 

There are three ingredients in this formula that are different from Burn-XT; Chromium, N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine, and Paradoxine®.


Chromium:

When you look at the formula, the first ingredient listed is Chromium, an essential trace mineral. Chromium Picolinate has mixed feedback from researchers in regard to weight loss. While there may be some evidence of it aiding in reducing appetite and cravings (18), overall research on the impact of chromium in weight loss is questionable. (19) However, this ingredient may be beneficial in improving blood sugar. (20)


N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine:

Like ALCAR, N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine has cognitive benefits. It’s popular for improving alertness, attention, and focus. But when it comes to weight loss, Tyrosine may also be beneficial for regulating metabolism (21,22,23).


Paradoxine®:

The last different ingredient is Paradoxine®. Compared to Burn-XT, Paradoxine® best compares with Capsimax®. This is because both ingredients contribute majorly to the thermogenic aid of fat burners. Paradoxine® or Grains of Paradise Extract comes from Alframomum melegueta and is another popular thermogenic ingredient in fat burners. Where it may aid in increasing energy expenditure (calorie burning) through the activation of brown adipose tissue. (24,25)

Lipo-6 Black Stim-Free Review:

Review By Ally: “I picked this fat burner because it didn’t have caffeine. Normally, I go for caffeine-based/stimulant-based fat burners, but I wanted to try something new as I can be sensitive to caffeine. I feel like this fat burner really helped me to concentrate and helped me sweat at the gym. I liked it!” Posted on 1/11/22

Our next product comparison is with Leanfire By Force Factor. The difference to note between these products is that Leanfire does not feature a fully disclosed label. So we won’t be able to make a direct comparison between dosages for most ingredients. However, we do have the volume of the active ingredients in the whole blend (700mg) and specifically Caffeine (150mg).

From this comparison, Burn-XT has more active ingredients as a whole, but one capsule of Leanfire has more Caffeine. Besides Caffeine, Leanfire shares two other ingredients directly with Burn-XT and partially shares a fourth ingredient. This includes Cayenne Pepper Powder (Capsimax® in Burn-XT), Green Tea Extract, and L-Carnitine (ALCAR in Burn-XT).

Adding to the differences, Leanfire only features a 30 servings formula, which would compare to 2 capsules of Burn-XT daily. But, the manufacturers for Leanfire do say you can take up to 2 capsules daily. Meaning you may have 15 servings per container if you choose to take two capsules.

Like in Lipo-6 Black Stim-Free, there are three ingredients in this formula that are different from Burn-XT; L-Theanine, Verilean Green Coffee Extract, and Garcinia Cambogia Extract.


L-Theanine:

Theanine is our first ingredient in the blend and isn’t often in fat burners. Theanine is considered an anti-stress amino acid, which is described as a relaxation without sedation. But, there may be a synergistic effect when combined with Caffeine. Research suggests this combination may promote heightened focus, awareness, and energy (26). This ingredient would compare to the ALCAR in Burn-XT.


Verilean Green Coffee Extract:

Next, we have Verilean Green Coffee Extract. Similar to Caffeine, Green Coffee Bean Extract has many published studies indicating its potential effectiveness for weight loss. These studies support that Green Coffee Bean Extract can promote body fat reduction through its anti-obesity properties. (27,28,29)


Garcinia Cambogia Extract:

Our last ingredient in Leanfire is Garcinia Cambogia Extract. This extract is potent in Hydroxy Citric Acid or HCA. Where HCA is primarily used for its appetite-suppressing properties and may inhibit fatty acid synthesis. (30)

Leanfire Review:

Review By Timmy: “I really loved the way this product made me feel. I could definitely tell I had more energy and I also did not feel as hungry as I usually do.” Posted on

XD Delivery Technology 61mg ×/✔

Our last product comparison with Burn-XT Thermogenic Fat Burner is Blade Fat Burner by Blue Star Nutraceuticals. Like Burn-XT, Blade features a fully disclosed label. When you add the volume of the ingredients in Blade, there is about 1,494mg of active ingredients compared to Burn-XT’s 737.5mg. But Blade does feature a 2 capsule per serving formula. So if you were to only take one capsule, you would need to half the value of each ingredient. Despite the serving size being two capsules, Blade still features more servings per container. With 120 capsules in all, taking two capsules daily will leave you with a 2-month supply.

When you compare the formulas, you can see again we have almost four shared ingredients. This includes Acetyl-L-Carnitine, Green Tea Extract, Caffeine Anhydrous, and Bioperine® in the delivery blend. This leaves three ingredients that are different and the rest of the delivery blend.

This includes; CH-19 Sweet Pepper, Advantra Z® (Citrus Aurantium), Yohimbine HCl, and the remaining ingredients in the delivery blend that are intended to support the absorption of the formula.


CH-19 Sweet Pepper:

Similar to Capsimax®, CH-19 Sweet Pepper aids weight loss by promoting calorie burning. Additionally, in combination with Green Tea Extract, this ingredient can also promote appetite suppression.  (31)


Advantra Z® (Citrus Aurantium):

Advantra Z® or Citrus Aurantium is another popular stimulant in fat burners. This extract is full of vitamins, minerals, flavonoids, and phenylethylamine alkaloids, including p-synephrine. Where p-synephrine has both energy-boosting and mood-boosting properties. And in addition to that, it may also support fat mobilization, which increases fat burning. (32,33,34)


Yohimbine HCl:

Yohimbine is another common stimulant/thermogenic. This ingredient is considered an alpha-2 antagonist. This means that it can stimulate adrenaline and noradrenaline receptors. Stimulating these receptors can result in appetite suppression, improving energy and focus, and fat mobilization. (3536)

Blade Review:

Review By Eric: “Blade really worked for me. After starting it I noticed I was losing weight faster and staying lean longer. I can recommend this product 100%. But like all supps it works if you work. You will still need to workout and eat well to get results and maintain them. ” Posted on 1/12/22

Section Divider: What Thermogenic Should You Try

What Thermogenic Should You Try

After going through all those fat burners and their ingredients, the main deciding factor will come from the following:

  • Stimulant Content
  • Value Per Container
  • Value Per Serving

Burn-XT:

We would recommend Burn-XT for individuals new to fat burners but familiar with stimulants like Caffeine. Because of your option to graduate to 2 capsules a day, you have around a month’s supply of this fat burner or two months if you prefer fewer stimulants. 

Lipo-6 Black Stim-Free:

However, if you are not a fan of stimulants and want to focus on thermogenesis, Lipo-6 Black Stim-Free provides a better value per capsule and per container. This is because of the higher content of thermogenic ingredients per capsule and the one capsule/day formula providing a two-month supply. 

Leanfire:

Leanfire, on the other hand, would be a great option for individuals that have a moderate to high tolerance to stimulants. Although most of the ingredients are in a proprietary blend, we know the content of Caffeine (150mg). And because the manufacturers state you are able to take two capsules daily, you can potentially take 300mg per day. Consequently, taking two capsules daily would give you only 15 servings. So we would recommend Leanfire for individuals looking for a thermogenic fat burner for short-term usage. 

Blade Fat Burner:

Finally, we have Blue Star Blade. This is a great fat burner option for individuals looking for low-moderate stimulant doses but for long-term use. As there are 120 capsules per bottle, there is a 4-month supply of this fat burner for individuals with a low tolerance to stimulants who choose to take one capsule daily. If you choose take a full serving (2 capsules), you do not sacrifice stimulant content or supply. Additionally, the manufacturers state not to exceed four capsules a day, so if you prefer a higher-stim fat burner, you can take an additional serving. 

If you’re looking for an even higher-stim fat burner rather than a thermogenic, we recommend checking out Her Ab Ignitor
