Summary: Inno Shred Focus is a thermogenic weight loss supplement aimed to help you get a boost of energy, boost brainpower, increase focus, and suppress your appetite. We’ve found it to be a lackluster supplement at best. Due to its downsides, Inno Shred Focus isn’t as effective or safe as other fat burner supplements on the market.
About Inno Shred Focus
Inno Shred Focus is made by Inno Supps. This company makes a wide range of supplements ranging from muscle building, fat burning, energy increasing, and wellness.
They claim to have products manufactured in GMP and Informed Choice certified facilities, ingredients sourced from only the most reputable suppliers, and no artificial sweeteners or fillers in their products.
As far as Inno Sherd Focus goes Inno Supps claim that this product will unlock extreme mental drive while accelerating the fat-burning process. Let’s see how the ingredients back up these claims.
Ingredients in Inno Shred Focus Review
The most important part of any review is the ingredient analysis. This is where the product either shines or all the promises the manufacturer makes crumble. What we will be taking into consideration is what the ingredient will do for you regarding the task at hand(weight loss and focus) as well as looking for studies done on the ingredients and whether the studies back up the claims you might hear about an ingredient.
General Health Ingredients
One of the 8 B vitamins your body needs to stay healthy. It’s an essential part of around 200 chemical reactions in your body such as brain development and transportation of oxygen through your bloodstream. Vitamin B6 is also important in order to maintain a healthy nervous and immune system.
An essential nutrient that helps your body create DNA. Just like Vitamin B6, it nourishes the brain and nervous system. Vitamin B12 plays a role in creating serotonin which means it could help with combating depression and improving your mood.
This nutrient can be found in your body, but you need to get Choline from a diet in order to not be deficient. Your brain and nervous system need it in order to regulate memory, mood, muscle control, and other functions.
Fat Burning Ingredients
Green Tea has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for a long time. These days in the West it has been claimed and used as a weight loss supplement, but does it really work? A green tea-caffeine mixture improves weight maintenance, through thermogenesis, fat oxidation, and sparing fat-free mass. Therefore, it’s a good thing that Inno Shred Focus contains both of these ingredients.
Even though Green Tea itself has Caffeine the addition of Caffeine as a separate ingredient is a welcome one. Apart from being a great combination with Green Tea, Caffeine Anhydrous is just as its Latin name suggests basically Caffeine without any water. This is a dehydrated and powdered form of Caffeine that has the potential to reduce your weight, BMI, and fat reduction, a systematic review, and meta-analysis of controlled trials have shown.
Green Coffee Seed Extract
Green Coffee is essentially raw coffee before it’s roasted. It’s believed that it might help you with weight loss, but the studies so far have been on lab rats. With that being said, scientists believe that the high levels of chlorogenic acids in green coffee bean extract are key to its weight loss effects. Chlorogenic Acids may also boost fat metabolism, but research needs to be done on humans so we can tell for sure if Green Coffee could benefit us the same way it does rats.
Citrus Aurantium Seeds Extract
This ingredient contains beta-agonists. Two studies have shown that it can aid weight loss and increase thermogenesis. In one of the studies, the subjects showed a mean of 0.94 kg lost during the first week when no product was given and 2.40 kg during the second week when a Citrus aurantium product was taken.
Capsicum Fruit Extract
If you have ever eaten a hot pepper you are more than aware of the burning sensation it gives. Capsaicin is the substance responsible for the sensation you’ll get and it has a few potential health benefits. Firstly and most importantly, Capsaicin could help you with weight or fat loss. It can help boost your metabolism, increase your oxygen consumption and increase your body temperature. All this combined could help you reach a calorie deficit making you lose weight.
Grains Of Paradise Seed
Grains of Paradise isn’t that well-researched yet. This plant comes from Africa and is in the GInger family. Results of a study suggest that GP extract may be an effective and safe tool for reducing body fat, mainly by preventing visceral fat accumulation.
Mental Focus Ingredients
So far we were fairly happy about the ingredients and the potential effectiveness of this product. This is the part where we’re starting to become a little bit disappointed. We really dislike proprietary blends and both Mental Focus and Appetite Suppression ingredients are proprietary blends.
You can also find this ingredient naturally in Green and Black tea. There is immense interest in L-Theanine as a supplement as well as a functional food ingredient for its therapeutic health benefits, including but not limited to its effects on learning ability, immune function, cancer suppression, and vascular relaxation.
Alpha-GPC increases the release of the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine and facilitates learning and memory. In athletes, Alpha-GPC supplementation prevents exercise-induced reductions in choline levels and increases endurance performance and growth hormone secretion.
People use rauwolscine for obesity, athletic performance, sexual arousal, and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses. Until further research is done we can’t be sure of the actual benefits it can bring. It is actually eerily similar to the banned stimulant Yohimbine; early evidence suggests Rauwolscine could be even more potent! Needless to say, this is a risky inclusion.
Huperzine A Complex
Huperzine A Complex increases the levels of Acetylcholine whose benefits we have already discussed with Alpha GPC. To recap, you may experience an improvement in your memory levels from Huperzine A. One major downside to this ingredient is that it can cause headaches and (ironically) memory impairment when taken long-term. But since you need to take a break from Huperzine A to avoid these side effects, it means that other ingredients in Inno Shred Focus that need to be taken daily won’t work properly.
Appetite Suppression Ingredients
Hoodia Stem Extract
This succulent plant has been traditionally used by Indigenous people of southern Africa as an appetite suppressant. One chemical in hoodia called P57 is thought to decrease feelings of hunger. But it’s not clear how P57 causes this effect. Another chemical in hoodia called gordonoside F is thought to decrease feelings of hunger by increasing the production of insulin.
Theobromine can be found in cocoa beans. Although it may have many benefits we haven’t been able to find any appetite suppression claims backed by research.
Garcinia Fruit Extract
This ingredient is popular for weight loss. It’s been said that it blocks your body’s ability to make fat and it suppresses your appetite. The active ingredient in this fruit is Hydroxycitric Acid which appears to block an enzyme called citrate lyase, which your body uses to make fat. Results from a couple of studies don’t seem too impressive as people who took Garcinia Cambogia only lost around 2 pounds more than people not taking it.
It’s believed that raspberry ketone might increase metabolism, increase how quickly the body burns fat, and reduce appetite. But the evidence in humans is limited.
Coleus Forskohlii Rhizome Extract
Limited studies show that Coleus Forskohlii extract could aid in weight reduction, but more research needs to be done.
Dosage Instructions (How to Take)
Inno Supps recommends you to take two capsules any time of the day with or without food. It is also important not to take more than the company recommends in order to reduce any risks of harmful side effects.
What do Customers Say About Inno Shred Focus Review?
Customer reviews of Inno Shred FOcus seem to be mostly positive. One thing we have mostly picked up from users is that they feel a lot more energy than they used to. Another benefit people are often mentioning is brain clarity and better concentration. Some users have stated that they can see the weight shed while some say they don’t see a difference. It’s hard to judge the effectiveness of a product by just reading reviews as you don’t know if the person is consistent with taking the supplement and whether the testimonial is legitimate, etc.
The most side effects we can find are people getting the jitters, potential nausea, and diarrhea. The culprit for many of the side effects people are feeling is caffeine. If you have a low caffeine tolerance or already consume a lot of coffee daily consider reducing your coffee intake, or simply try taking one capsule daily instead of two.
Pricing and Availability
As far as the price goes Inno Shred Focus will set you back $55. The price is with a discount on the official site and we aren’t sure if this is a marketing trick or an offer that won’t last forever. The stated regular price is $80. If you decide to subscribe the price is even lower costing you $44 for a month’s supply. Inno Shred Focus isn’t only available on the official website though, it can also be found on Amazon and eBay.
All in all Inno Shred Focus seems like an average weight loss supplement. Don’t get us wrong, it’s not terrible but it’s not great either. Although it should bring you results with the ingredients it uses what bothers us the most is the use of not one, but two proprietary blends. Proprietary blends are not only potentially dangerous because you can’t know the doses of ingredients, but also paint a bad picture of the company as being shady and not wanting to tell their customers what exactly is in the product they are buying with their hard-earned cash.
