Review Overview – What does BSN Clean do?
From big-time supplement company BSN comes Clean the ‘concentrated fat burning’ support that has been added to their range.
On the face of it, Clean claims to:
- Improve energy levels
- Manage weight
- Burn fat
Usually with a fat burner the last two points mean the same thing, so I was curious about what had gone in to Clean to make it so different to other fat burners out there on the market.
Unfortunately, there wasn’t much of a surprise. You can read my findings below:
How does BSN Clean Work?
The serving schedule for BSN Clean is pretty good. 3 servings a day of one capsule is not only manageable but it helps keep thermogenesis consistent throughout the day, and energy levels stable.
There were a few good ingredients in here, but unfortunately the problem wasn’t they put it, it’s what they didn’t put in:
The Green Coffee Bean was a great addition
Although it contains no caffeine, Green Coffee Bean gives your body a great thermogenic boost.
The chlorogenic acid in this bean helps cut down the amount of glucose in the liver. Without this stored, the body must look to other resources for energy, and moves on to your fat stores.
As was the Caffeine Anhydrous
This natural stimulant is great at boosting both energy levels and your body’s metabolism. If you’re struggling to keep up while you’re on a low calorie diet, it’ll definitely come in handy.
The Cissus Quadrangularis was a different choice
Not so much of a fat burner but more of a joint aid. It’s used among athletes to keep up bone health, but there’s not that much evidence to back it all up yet.
However the evidence for the Grapefruit Bioflavonoids is thin
This citric nutrient is thought to promote fat loss. However, only one study has come forward so far that touts the effects of Grapefruit – grapefruit was used with a combination of other citrus fruits.
It’s unclear how much of this was the grapefruit. You can read the study here.
Yerba Mate helps get a little more caffeine in there
There are some ties to Yerba Mate helping with fat oxidation, however not enough evidence has been collected. The only benefit it serves at the moment is supplying us with more caffeine which can help boost those energy levels.
And Cayenne Pepper is just a great thermogenic
This chili is always a solid way to burn extra calories. By raising your body’s core temperature due to it’s heat, the process your body must carry out to regulate itself burns calories, and allows you to benefit from a solid thermogenic effect.
All in all there’s a good combination of ingredients here, but it is lacking in a few areas. There’s not enough ingredients in this product to engage full thermogenesis (Green Tea would’ve been great) and nothing has been done to suppress appetite.

Where to buy BSN Clean?
It’s currently $59.99 on the GNC website. It’s an okay product, but I don’t think it’s worth this price personally.
None have been reported.

BSN Clean Fat Burner Review Conclusion
After closely studying BSN’s Clean, I have to say it’s better than quite a few of the fat burners on the market – but it is by no means the best.
It contains some good ingredients like Green Coffee Bean, Caffeine and Cayenne Pepper, however it doesn’t have any other nutrients that have been proven to promote fat loss.
There even has been no effort to promote appetite suppression whatsoever.
If this was a cheaper fat burner, it would be more worth the money, but when you’re paying $50 and up, expect the best – this is not it.
