Ignite Maxx reviewIgnite Maxx is a dietary supplement manufactured by EPXBody LLC. It has been designed to help individuals lose and manage weight. The claim is that the product can help you control your appetite, lower body mass and body fat, and help induce thermogenesis.

The ingredients in Ignite Maxx supposedly help to transform white fat into brown fat, a process that boosts the mitochondria in the fat cell. The more mitochondria that is present, the more these cells can breakdown. In addition, the product is supposed to help minimize fat cells by stimulating the hybrid fat cells (the cells with increased mitochondria), causing them to burn up.

According to the supplement facts sheet, on the official product page, the ingredients include: Chromium and a Proprietary Blend consisting of panax ginseng extract (5% ginsenosides) (root), green tea leaf extract (providing 150 mg catechins, 90 mg, EGCG), caffeine (200 mg), sea buckthorn fruit extract, digestive enzymes (amyplase, protease, lipase, papain and bromelain), high-fucoxanthin brown seaweed, raspberry ketones, capsicum fruit extract (Capsimax™), rhodiola root extract and black pepper.

Ignite Maxx uses a mixture of patented ingredients, including Capsimax, which is a proprietary thermogenic blend that combines the ingredients Capsimax Capsicum Extract, Caffeine, Piperine and Niacin.

The fruit of the capsicum plant contains capsaicin, the active thermogenic ingredient from peppers. The thought is that this ingredient can burn extra calories while in the bloodstream by generating energy to make extra heat. Caffeine, on the other hand, has shown to boost alertness and energy levels and may boost metabolism, while piperine (black pepper extract) can help the body better absorb the nutrients from digested food, and Niacin can help keep energy levels up, which can aid in the burning of more calories.

According to the official Ignite Maxx website, Capsimax has been clinically researched. In a double blind, randomized, placebo controlled cross-over study conducted at the University of Oklahoma, 25 subjects, who took Capsimax 60 minutes prior to exercising on a treadmill, burned an average cumulative total of 278 more calories combined, compared to when these same subjects took a placebo and exercised.

The site provides a reference for this study, which does show Capsimax as having some promise as a fat burner. However, more than one clinical trial is needed to determine the safety and efficacy of a supplement. Furthermore, it is important to point out that while Capsimax has been studied, the actual Ingnite Maxx, as a complete product, has not been studied. Therefore, any statements made about this product are completely unsubstantiated.

Finally, it is important to note that this product does contain caffeine, so it carries the risk of stimulant-related side effects, such as insomnia, jitters, headache, anxiety, sweating, rapid heartbeat, etc.

It is highly recommended that you talk to your doctor before taking Ignite Maxx.
