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.

Users Reviews

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

There are reports of anxiety, dizziness, tachycardia and feelings of sickness in some users.. this is no doubt down to the high levels of stimulants – in particular one ingredient that has thrown up some health concerns ( see ‘Our Thoughts’ below)

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This was withdrawn from sale due to its high risks of potentially dangerous side effects that included Increased Blood Pressure, Strokes and Heart attacks.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.

    • Hi Josina… I have to be honest I am not personally familiar with Levothyroxine…. however, I have done some research, and it appears that the only thing you need to be aware of is possible interactions with vitamins and natural minerals, in particular anything related to calcium…. that said, you are doing the right thing by waiting 4 hours, which is the recommended period of time, after that timescale, it appears to be safe…One thing… Are on any other medication? as Lethothyroxine does have some interactions with a number of other drugs….hope this helps – Paul

  1. Jym 6 week shred plan calls for additional caffeine and yohimbe with shred supplement. Can you take hydroxycut black onyx for the extra caffeine and yohimbe are would that be too much?

    • To be honest Mike.. I wouldn’t go anywhere near Yohimbe…. its far to risky for me… Do you know about the health risks linked to it?? and the fact that its on the FDA dangerous ingredient list – there is an information page on yohimbe on this site that you should have a look at.. you will find it in the side bar…..Just a suggestion – if you want to increase your caffeine intake. why not have look at Instant Knockout as a good alternative.. its a bloody good fat burner and whats more it doesn’t have any risky ingredients.. cheers Paul
