A tasty caffeine drink that helps you to burn fat, support brain health, strengthen immunity and boost energy levels? That’s exactly what Java Shred (formerly Inno Spresso Burn) claims to achieve!
It is a caffeinated drink with a twist – using a combination of natural ingredients to help you lose weight without ugly side effects.
But does it really work? Read on as we explain what you can expect from Java Shred – starting with a brief overview.
- Natural formula
- Great flavor ratings
- A strong dose of caffeine for long-lasting energy
- Might help to suppress your appetite slightly
- Supports brain & immune function
- Multiple stimulants (146mg of caffeine+Rauwolscine) may be too much for sensitive users
- Lacking core ingredients such as glucomannan and cayenne pepper extract
- The price ($44.99 per 30 servings) is not the best value for what it offers
Java Shred (Innospresso Burn) Review at a Glance:
Java Shred is yet another fat burner from Inno Supps, the newest one after Inno Shred and Night Shred. It should give you some results, but it’s not for those sensitive to stimulants. While Java Shred is a definite upgrade to your standard cup of coffee, it’s lacking some key fat burners and appetite suppressants, while using some ineffective ingredients compared to market-leading weight loss products.
About Java Shred
Java Shred, or Inno Spresso Burn by Inno Supps, is marketed as a natural fat burning brew. It is a caffeinated drink with some additional ingredients that should help to:
- Kickstart your metabolism in the morning

- Curb sugar cravings
- Promote brain function
- Support your immune system
Java Shred claims to be different from other caffeinated drinks in the sense that it gives you a clean rush of energy without the ugly mid-day crash, plus the additional brain health benefits.
IJava Shred comes in two flavors:
- Original Blend
- Chocolate Caramel
Whether it really works as claimed, and how it will work for you, are some of the questions we will look at in more detail below.

So, what do we think about Java Shred’s formula? Does it work for fat burning, energy, metabolism, and appetite suppression?
The answer is yes — to an extent.
A few ingredients in Java Shred are well-known fat burners. Caffeine included.
However, some ingredients in Java Shred aren’t proven to work at all. Not only that, a few compounds in the formula are potentially risky and can cause side effects.
See for yourself.
Java Shred contains several vitamins from the B-complex family, these include:
- Riboflavin (2mg)
- Niacin (10mg)
- Vitamin B6 (2.5mg)
- Vitamin B12 (25mcg)
These are all essential nutrients that your body needs to get from outside sources (aka, diet and/or supplements). Lack of any of the B vitamins can lead to health problems, which include memory loss, insomnia, and, yes, weight gain.
Having said that, only a small minority of people experience a real deficiency in B vitamins, since they are abundant in most foods we eat.
If you are already getting enough B vitamins through your diet, then supplementation doesn’t do much at all. In the context of weight loss, we don’t see how tiny doses of these vitamins in Java Shred can boost weight loss. At best, they’re here for supporting your overall wellness.
MCT, or medium-chain triglycerides, are saturated fat commonly found in coconut oil. MCTs get absorbed quickly by your liver and can then be used for energy.
Despite the hype they’ve been getting, MCTs aren’t an effective weight loss supplement. If anything, MCTs are just like any other type of fat when it comes to calories; consuming too much can only slow down your progress.
CLA or conjugated linoleic acid is another type of fat in Java Shred. It is an ingredient with some slight evidence showing it may contribute to increased fat burning. CLA achieves this effect by stimulating a system in your body called PPAR (which affects weight loss). However, studies so far show that CLA’s effects on PPAR are too insignificant to lead to noticeable weight loss. It is sadly yet another ineffective ingredient in Java Shred.
Coffee Bean Extract (Caffeine)
Caffeine is an ingredient we’re all familiar with. It affects your nervous system by increasing adrenaline and noradrenaline production; making you more alert. In addition, caffeine “blocks” adenosine receptors making you less sleepy.
Caffeine isn’t just for energy-boosting, though. It has also been shown time and time again that it increases the basal metabolic rate of your body; working as a thermogenic. If that already wasn’t good enough, caffeine is also a natural appetite suppressant, helping you to stay below your daily calorie intake.
There is about 164mg of caffeine in Java Shred. This is a strong enough amount to give you the aforementioned effects without causing significant side effects. However, if you are sensitive to stimulants, then this dosage can make you jittery, anxious, ad experience an energy crash as the effects wear off.
Garcinia Fruit Extract
Garcinia Cambogia is a type of fruit rich in HCA. HCA is an acid thought to suppress appetite and promote fat burning within the body. It works by affecting your serotonin brain levels, which results in a happier mood and reduced appetite. Sounds like a win-win combo, right? Unfortunately, we also have experts showing Garcinia can be harsh on the liver. The 200mg that is in Java Shred might be too high of a dose, too, so we’d play caution here.
Rauwolscine is a stimulant compound. It is similar in effects to the banned ingredient Yohimbine. However, whereas we know exactly how Yohimbine works, Rauwolscine’s long-term effects are still a topic of debate – it is not studied enough. Coupled with the fact that we already have more than enough stimulant content in caffeine, this makes us wary of recommending this as a safe weight loss ingredient for you.
Our Commentary on Java Shred’s Formula
Java Shred is not a terrible fat-burning formula, but it definitely has a lot of room for improvement.
It is good for boosting your energy. In addition, some of the ingredients like CLA might positively affect your brain function, although there are even better nootropics that could’ve been included in its stead if brain support is the goal (e.g. Citicoline).
How would we improve upon Java Shred? We would remove the ineffective fat loss compounds such as CLA and MCTs and replace them with proven, tried and tested fat burners such as cayenne pepper extract, green tea extract, and a high dose of vitamin D.
We would also remove the potentially risky Rauwolscine which is unnecessary when you already have a good amount of caffeine. Combining multiple stimulants only raises the danger of side effects while not adding much in terms of benefits.
Overall then, Java Shred could be a good fat burner for you if you’re mostly looking for a strong energy kick, and if you’re experienced with stimulants.
Otherwise, for safe and effective long-term fat loss, you can easily find better supplements on the market today.
How to Use Java Shred
Java Shred dosage is one (1) scoop when you need a “boost”, for example before your workout or early in the morning instead of your regular coffee. Speaking of which, you should watch your total caffeine intake when taking Java Shred to avoid negative health effects. In addition, don’t take it too close to bedtime as this may give you insomnia.
Just like any supplement, there is a risk of side effects when taking Java Shred. The level of risk depends on your unique body chemistry and how you react to its compounds. Generally speaking, stimulants always raise the risk of side effects, especially if you are intolerant to them, and even more so if you combine multiple stimulants together (which is the case with Java Shred). Some of the potential side effects of Java Shred, therefore, include:
- Depressive symptoms
- Energy crashes
- Mood swings
Testimonials & Reviews
Java Shred is a relatively new supplement to hit the market so legitimate reviews are difficult to come by. You can find some “testimonials” on Inno Supps’ official website, though it’s difficult to say how many of these are good reflections of how the product will work for you. Generally speaking, though, the reviews on Java Shred look positive for the most part.
Pricing, Availability, and Other Things to Consider
A tub of Java Shred (30 servings) costs $44.99 on its official website if you choose the single-time purchase option. Alternatively, you can subscribe to recurring payments and delivery of the product for a price of $35.99 per tub.
If you are looking to boost your energy and experience slightly more mental clarity during your day, Java Shred could be a good enough option for you.
When talking about weight loss, though, it’s definitely far from the best out there. Java Shred has too many downsides for us to recommend it as an effective and safe option for the price that is being charged.
