Claiming To Be A Super Thermogenic… But Just How Good Is Performix SST?
We Find Out…..
Supplement manufacturer Performix sell a thermogenic fat burning supplement through GNC simply called SST (Suspension Super Thermogenic)
Designed to boost energy and also trigger the natural fat burning processes to help with weight loss, at first glance Performix SST promises so much… But Does It Deliver??
The Formula in Performix SST
Regretfully it appears that Performix are rather coy about letting us know exactly what is in the mix.. they do disclose the actual ingredients, just not how much of anything is in each serving….
With the exception of Niacin (10mg) and Vitamin B12 (1000mcg) the amounts of everything else is undisclosed and squeezed into a proprietary blend totalling 322mg
- Caffeine Anhydrous
- Bitter Orange ( Synephedrine)
- Mucuna Pruriens
Take 2 capsules daily on an empty stomach
Do Not Take Within 6 Hours Of Bedtime and avoid anything else containing caffeine while taking this supplement
GNC do show a mixed bag of reviews, on the plus side, some users did experience greater energy, but on the down side some reported disturbed sleep, the shakes and anxiety – this is no doubt to the mix of stimulants..
The facts are that very few people actually speak about losing unwanted fat with this product…
Where To Buy Performix SST
GNC are a main supplier – expect to pay anything between $59.99 and $99.99 for a months supply

Any Cash Back Guarantees
There are none provided – which for a product this expensive is actually disappointing.
With a real mixed bag of both positive results and sheer disappointment from users of Performix SST – we decided to have a real in depth look at the formula to se if this supplement has any chance of living up to its hype…
Caffeine is one of the main ingredients and to be fair it’s found in many thermogenic fat burners… it helps to raise the body’s natural temperature, increasing the metabolism and as a result can help to boost energy and increase your fat burning ability..
Looking at some of the other ingredients in the mix:
Ashwagandha – natural herbal extract popular in indian traditional medicine… it has been shown to have a positive effect on stress, and can help reduce cholesterol…. it has also shown to be able to reduce fatigue…. It has (however) also been linked to causing burning and inflammation in some male users genitals – something that should always be considered before taking anything containing Ashwagandha.. No Proven Thermogenic properties whatsoever..
Bitter Orange (Synephedrine) a popular replacement for the now banned Ephedrine…It has similar properties to Ephedrine. but overall is largely untested and unproven in humans test subjects.. it has been linked to similar side effects that include, Heart Problems, Increased Blood Pressure and fainting.. it also has the tendency to make fair skinned users more sensitive to sunlight.
Yohimbine – In the correct dose, Yohimbine has been shown to be an effective fat burning compound… however , its effects are only any good if used while fasting.. if you eat while taking this, its effects are virtually 100% reduced.. Yohimbine is actually on the FDA list of dangerous ingredients and has been banned in some countries, it has been shown to cause panic attacks, dizziness, hallucinations and both renal and heart failure
Mucuna Pruriens – also known as velvet bean, it is popular in male enhancement supplements and this is due to its recognised ability to improve sexual function, fertility and performance.. has no recognised fat burning properties whatsoever…
Overall – Ineffective at Best – Potentially Dangerous At Worst
