I’m always on the look-out for the latest and greatest fat burning product to try. Fat burners are a great supplement to add to your routine if you’re looking for a little extra help with weight loss and energy. Gaspari has recently launched their new thermogenic amplifier and it does not disappoint! Here is my Gaspari Nutrition Detonate review.
The Detonate Proprietary blend consists of the following ingredients. The total amount of the blend per capsule is 700 mg, but the individual amounts are not listed on the bottle.
Dendrobium extract (stem) is sourced from a Chinese orchid, and has been used effectively for years as a way to replace spent adaptive energy and replenish fluids. It is commonly used by those who engage in a lot of marital activity and, as a result, has been called the ‘honeymooners tea’. In herbalism, dendrobium is used to treat dryness problems, specifically in the lungs and stomach, such as dry mouth, thirst, stomach pain, mouth sores, sunstroke, and dry lungs and air passages due to dry weather, pollution and smoke. Dendrobium also helps support beatiful, healthy skin.
B-Phenylethylamine HCL is biosynthesized from L-Phenylalanine (an amino acid), and is naturally present in the brain to help regulate stress, mood and focus.
Tangerine extract (fruit) is used to treat diabetes, blood sugar problems, and obesity. It contains a flavonoid called nobiliten which has been noted to prevent weight gain due to a high sugar/carbohydrate diet.
Caffeine anhydrous helps improve energy and focus.
Green tea extract (leaf) is high in antioxidants, and is a natural source of caffeine. This ingredient offers an energy boost, and will help with weight control and fat burning.
Green coffee bean extract contains the antioxidant CGA (chlorogenic acid), and has been shown to reduce visceral fat and body weight by reducing the amount of glucose in your bloodstream so that your body burns fat cells for energy instead of carbohydrates.
Asian ginseng (root) is known to boost energy, focus and help prevent memory loss. It has also been shown to improve mood, create a better sense of well-being, and improve athletic performance.
Black pepper extract (as BioPerine) helps with the absorption of nutrients, and has been shown to have an anti-depressant effect.
Dosing – 10/10
Suggested use: as a dietary supplement, take 1-2 capsules on an empty stomach before breakfast. Due to the potential potency, begin by taking 1 capsule for the first three days, and add 1 capsule should the need arise. Do NOT use this product for longer than 4 weeks, followed by a subsequent 4 week break. Do NOT exceed 2 capsules in a 24 hour period. Consume A LOT of water while taking Detonate – at least 11 cups per day for women, and 15 cups per day for men. There are 60 capsules in a bottle, providing a 1-2 month supply.
Effectiveness – 9.5/10
I found Gaspari Detonate to be a very effective product. From the first dose, I noticed a strong stimulant and sensory effect, resulting in clear thinking, and plenty of focus and energy. Detonate provided me with clean energy. I didn’t experience any jitters, headaches or crashes. It did make me a little warm, but that’s a small sacrifice for the overall heightened sense of well-being. Detonate also suppressed my appetite which helped me lose the weight. I had all these great results on just 1 capsule per day. I tried 2, but the extra capsule made me too sweaty and have uncomfortable energy. Everyone will react differently, but 1 capsule was enough for me.
Overall – 9.7/10
In their new fat burner, Gaspari Nutrition felt it was best to head in a different direction with the Detonate formulation. As a replacement for the now banned DMAA (geranium), Gaspari included Dendrobium extract with much success. Their formula is supported by 2 clinical studies, involving active and healthy adults, which demonstrated product safety and effectiveness, supporting a strong trend for weight loss and lean body mass recomposition. Detonate can easily be stacked with other products like aminos or proteins, but avoid taking it with other stimulants. I was happy with the results I got from using Detonate by Gaspari Nutrition. My energy levels and mood were great all day. This is a good fat burning/weight loss product that is definitely worth a shot!
