Do Fat Burners Work?

do fat burners work.jpg

At the very core, fat-burning pills are designed to do what they say in the product description: burn fat. But you might be surprised at how they do it.

Fat burners operate and work in a variety of ways. Many of them claim to increase metabolism, block fat absorption, increase weight loss, and maximize fat oxidation during activity. The most common ingredient in fat burners is caffeine. You’ll most likely see some which have green tea in them as well. In most instances, the root of almost all fat burners is some sort of stimulant (we’ll tell you why in the next section.)

So what exactly do fat burners do? Fat burners can help:

● Curb appetite

● Convert fat to be used for energy

● Increase metabolism

● Increase your core temperature for more calorie burn

● Boost energy

There are two processes involved in fat loss and fat burners. Thermogenesis and lipolysis. In a simple explanation, thermogenesis is a metabolic function where your body produces heat by burning calories. Lipolysis is where lipids are broken down by hydrolysis of triglycerides (glycerol and three fatty acids). Most fat burners target one or both of these processes.


Fat burners are very effective when you are trying to burn excess fat or when you want to lose weight. They will improve your body’s ability to burn fat. Whether it’s through uncoupling (creating heat inside a cell to burn fat), manipulating enzymes in the body responsible for fat loss, thermogenics, or boosting your metabolism, fat burners are very effective for losing weight and burning fat in your body.

Not all fat burners are equal though. As mentioned below, many fat burners rely on high amounts of stimulants, like caffeine and green tea. At one point, ephedrine was a very popular fat burner, but with so many negative side effects most commonly associated with it, most manufacturers have opted in for the two popular types mentioned previously. With that said, be cautious of fat burners where the main ingredient contains higher than safe doses and relies on a stimulant such as caffeine or green tea. Prolonged use of these types of stimulants can create unhealthy habits.

It comes back to the question many ask: Do fat burners work? Of course, they do! But how they work is just an important question.


Are there side effects to taking fat burners? Generally, the short answer is “Yes”. There is a catch though: the type of fat burner matters. Most fat burners on the market rely on artificially increasing the workload of your heart to turn your body into a fat-burning machine. This approach does work and you’ll most likely see results. But...due to this fat-burning philosophy, most fat burners put undue stress on your heart. This extra stress is often the root of some of the negative side effects.

As a result, most users will see these common negative side effects of fat burners:

● Heart palpitations

● Fast heart rate

● High blood pressure and blood pressure fluctuation

● Irregular heartbeat

● Insomnia

● Headaches


At Xyngular, our weight-loss products, some of which also have the benefit of being fat burners, operate on a different scientific approach.

We don’t believe in having the heart do all the work to burn all the fat, and we don’t believe the core ingredient of a fat burner should be a stimulant like caffeine. The Xyngular holistic approach says that the whole body is responsible for burning fat, not only the heart.

For example, Xyngular’s Accelerate leverages our exclusive Thermolit Blend™ of five naturally sourced ingredients exclusive to Accelerate and Xyngular. This patented fat-burning blend helps break down excess fat in the body, controls hunger, aids in balancing and regulating healthy blood sugar levels, improves digestion for better nutrient absorption, and helps with cravings.

Many people have wondered, “Are fat burners safe?” That’s because they are unregulated supplements that offer varying degrees of results. Because they are unregulated, some fat burners don’t contain effective ingredients, and others have even been found to be tainted with harmful ingredients. So, if you’re asking, “Are fat burners dangerous?” the answer isn’t clear. It all depends on WHICH fat burner you’re taking.

The fat burner Accelerate, which is included in the Xyngular 8-Day Jumpstart, is safe and effective, and here’s why: Accelerate uses a proprietary Thermolit Blend. Its patented vegan and caffeine-free formula employs the use of several natural herbs that break down fat, control hunger, stabilize blood sugar levels, and improve digestion. Most importantly, it is made in the United States in a Good Manufacturing Practices-compliant facility. That means it contains clean ingredients that are known to be safe.*


Unlike many fat burners out on the market, Xyngular products are intended to work together as a kit. The reason so many supplements fall short in delivering on the promises they make? They address just ONE aspect of weight loss (surprise—there are more than a dozen)! You know there is more than just one obstacle when it comes to losing fat!

That's why Xyngular's bundled approach to weight loss and fat burning has been so effective. We know that there are many aspects to living a healthy life—and our kits, while definitely capable of burning fat, can do so much more.*

**Xyngular kits include a variation of the 8-Day Jumpstart. If you have additional weight to lose after your Jumpstart and select a Xyngular kit to support your efforts, DO NOT complete another 8-Day Jumpstart immediately. Instead, move to the post-Jumpstart meal plan of your choice and recommended product usage included in your kit.

*Individual results may vary based on personal variables and adherence to the program/product use. Typical results are 1-2 lbs. lost per week.
