It has been a while since we have looked at Strong Supplements EPIC top picks for…
I try and revisit this heavy-hitting list every few months. If you are anything like me, you may like to switch between fat-burning formulas throughout the year to help induce metabolic confusion. Meaning my metabolism and body chemistry never conform to one formula for too long, rendering it possibly less effective.
Let’s go back to Fat Burners 101 and review the basics…
Essentially what a fat burner does is help jump start our internal engines to aid our body in burning fat. They stimulate hormonal reactions by producing a chemical message to our bodies to burn fat as fuel.
Gym rats, there are some common ingredients in some of the most well-known fat burners, but there are also some that you may not have been keen to. For example, we all know caffeine, but what about Green Tea extract? Yohimbine? Caffeine FROM a coffee bean?
A lot of time and effort has been placed into the science of going beyond the fat burner jitters and truly delivering formulas that help see those extra pounds come off.
So lets take a look at some of the best ones that I personally have tried, but have also been studied and tested by the team here at Strong.
Cortisol is one nasty imbalance to have. It will literally KEEP storing fat and burn MUSCLE for energy instead. I have, however, found that there are some excellent ways to help fight cortisol in the body. I did a lot of research on the formula Assault Labs has put forth, and after studying the results, I am confident that this could be the stress hormone throat punch you may be looking for. CORTI COMBAT helps control cortisol and thus lets out bodies go back to burning fat for energy instead of wasting away at our hard-earned muscle. The price point can’t really be beat when it comes to Cortisol blockers.

It includes our Caffeine, Green Tea Extract, and active ingredients like Eria Jarensis Extract, which even helps produce a euphoric feeling to increase energy.

I wanted to save the best for last! This is the first time I have personally experienced a fat burner with this many natural products and I’ve got to say, the countless R&D hours they spent developing this have paid off! It is rare I use SUPP’s that are this well balanced. Every single ingredient is working in harmony with the others. As a result, I felt GREAT using this fat burner!
