Musclepharm Shred Matrix – Our In Depth Review
Does Shred Matrix Work?
Musclepharm are a well known bodybuilding supplement company and have formulated a popular weight loss product called Shred Matrix.
Said to increase stamina and energy while burning fat and helping to control appetite.
It is marketed as a Complete Fat Loss System.
Shred Matrix is suitable for both men and women and is claimed to “utilise the body’s multiple energy pathways and systems to promote aggressive mobilisation of fat which is then burnt as fuel”.
The makers claim the product will improve energy levels, increase alertness and enhance both mood and concentration. It is also said to regulate appetite. It seems like the perfect all round product.
The ingredient list is long, in fact too long to include here, so we have an image of the product label
Containing 6 different proprietary blends each with undisclosed amounts of their respective ingredients.. also including..
- Biotin 150mcg
- Pantohenic acid 3mg
- Niacin 3mg
- Zinc 1mg
- Magnesium 3.5mg
- Chromium 100mcg
How To Take Shred Matrix
Take 3 capsules with 8 oz of water 30 – 40 minutes before breakfast, take the second serving (3 capsules) 30 – 40 minutes before lunch
Warning – Do not take within 6 hours of bedtime and always make sure you drink at least 8 pints of water a day while taking Shred Matrix
On some bodybuilding sites the ratings for this product are high with an average rating of 8.2. On other sites such as Amazon the reviews are more mixed.
Users concerns included the actual ingredients contained in the supplement, others claim the product was ineffective.. One user was wary due to the fact that the label on the bottle warned users that there was a risk of choking while taking the product.. this shows if nothing else that the makers have been transparent about possible side effects.
But this possible risk alone would be enough to to put most people off. Why use an ingredient(s) that could could this kind of serious effect???

Shred Matrix will do what it says on the bottle.. The massive amount of stimulants will guarantee weight loss and fat loss, but……
This product is packed with ingredients, many which could cause unpleasant and many even serious side effects.
One ingredient in particular is definitely not for the faint hearted – Yohimbe – it has been banned in several countries, (Australia is one) due to the links with the following side effects.
- Panic Attacks
- Tachycardia (increased and/or irregular heart rate)
- Increased Feelings of Fear
- Decreased Cognitive Function
We really think Shred Matrix just isn’t worth the risk.. Yes this will do what it claims and will without doubt, help you lose weight, but if the makers feel they have to warn us about “possible choking” then we think looking elsewhere is a no brainer…..
We cannot consider recommending a product that carries such serious health warnings.
