Potentially Harmful Ingredient, So Is Taking Shred Jym Worth The Risk?
One of the most popular fat burners in bodybuilding circles is Shred Jym… developed by Jim Stoppani PHD – owner of JYM Supplement Science.
Sold as a three stage Fat Loss support capsule that delivers six synergistic ingredients. This helps to generate powerful fat loss as well as increased energy to maximise the results from your workouts.
The Formula In Shred Jym
The formula is fully disclosed and each serving of 4 capsules contains
- Acetyl-L-Carnitine 1.5g
- L-Tyrosine 500mg
- Green Tea Extract 500mg
- Caffeine 200mg
- Cayenne Pepper 50mg
- Synephedrine ( Citrus Aurantium Extract) 20mg
Directions For Using Shred Jym
Take 4 capsules 2-3 times per day (8-12 capsules per day) between meals.. Take the first serving upon waking and do not take within 6 hours of bedtime because the high level of stimulants could cause sleeplessness.
There are ( it has to be said) plenty of positive reviews with users experiencing dramatic energy bursts as well as solid fat burning.. on the down side, there are reports of unpleasant side effects for some users.. the general feeling is that if you are insensitive to stimulants, you should probably avoid.
Taking 8-12 capsules a day was also considered too many for a number of users

Our Thoughts On Shred Jym
There is no doubt in our mind whatsoever that Shred Jym is a powerful fat burning product. I
t should give good results as long just as you can tolerate the high level of stimulants contained in the formula…
We are however a little concerned by the inclusion of Synephedrine ( AKA Citrus Aurantium or Bitter Orange).
Commonly found in fat burning supplements. Synephedrine is now a common replacement for the now banned Ephedra.
This was withdrawn from sale due to its high risks of potentially dangerous side effects that included Increased Blood Pressure, Strokes and Heart attacks.
Similar in makeup to Ephedra; Synephedrine has also been linked to similar health problems. The facts are that there has been very little clinical testing that actually confirms that Synephedrine is in fact any safer than Ephedra.
Another point to consider that it has also been shown to make lighter skinned people more sensitive to sunlight. This could lead to an increased risk of sunburn.
“Always wear sunscreen when using products containing Synephedrine”
Shred Jym – Our Conclusion
Shred Jym does (rightly or wrongly) appear in our list of recommended Fat Burners.
Leaving the potential for side effects aside for one minute, it has proved itself as a very effective supplement… if you can tolerate it and accept the possible risks of the reported side effects – it will no doubt work for you.
The other products on the list are also all proven to work but the difference is that they cause minimal or no side effects.
There are also a couple of products on the list that are sold with a full cash back guarantee. These provide you (the buyer) some protection and peace of mind that should (after using as directed) you be unhappy with the results, you can return any empty and unused boxes and get your money back.
