Review Overview – What does Superstim do?
Superstim is a fat burner produced by Driven Sports that claims to:
- Increase Energy
- Help with Appetite Suppression
- Use Fat as Energy
- Works as Pre-Workout
- Boosts Metabolism
And basically anything else you can think of. The oversell on this product is annoying.
Which makes us suspicious of it actually works or not.
We’ve been taking a closer look at the facts and science behind what goes into Superstim and we’ve been blown away by the actual answers.
Here’s what we found:
How are the servings in Superstim?
Awful. 1 Serving a day.
Although it may sound convenient, 1 serving a day is the worst thing you can do for good results. This means your body only has as long as the fat burner lasts to experience the benefits – a couple of hours at tops.
What you should be looking for:
For the best results you need a fat burner that has around 3 – 4 servings a day, this way your body has a constant supply of the nutrients it needs to stay in fat burning mode, with regular top ups throughout.

What about the ingredients?
Superstim seems to miss the point completely when it comes to the term fat burner, as it includes no thermogenics whatsoever – which essentially are the main tools to help you burn the extra calories to get rid of fat.
On top of that the product is one large proprietary blend. This means all the ingredients are under the same value, so we have no idea how much of each is being used in these products, or how effective they’ll be in total – and some of them can cause side effects if improperly dosed.
Take a look:
The Phyllanthus Extract may have some effect, but it’ll be minor…
A herb that originates from Indian medicine for relaxation and therapeutic services – however, no studies have confirmed this. The only evidence that stands for Phyllanthus is that it may have some effect on regulating glucose metabolism.
However, these effects are minimal.
It’s the Caffeine that’s the main ingredient here…
Possibly the best known natural stimulant, caffeine is good for both boosting energy levels and metabolism. The only danger here is that we don’t know how much is used in Superstim.
Grapefruit is another nutrient that falls short of the mark…
Studies have shown that in very few cases, supplementing grapefruit has seen to help make some minor impact in lowering body fat.
However, those studies involved eating 1 and a half grapefruits a day, significantly less than the amount in this product – with or without knowing the dosage.
The Japanese Sophora Extract is another that doesn’t help with fat loss…
Another traditional herb, Japanese Sophora is thought to help with the immune system, however there is no evidence that supports it for fat loss.
It may help with cognition and focus, however studies in this area are largely unexplored.
The Yohimbe may help, or cause side effects, as this is a proprietary blend we can’t tell which…
Yohimbe bark has been seen in some cases to help with appetite suppression, however in others it has been seen to cause side effects.
It all depends on how much you take, and if it’s over 0.2mg/kg of body weight, you’re not going to be in for a good time. More on that later.
Ingredients Bottom Line:
There are two main problems with the ingredients in this product: the selection and the proprietary blend.
The selection is the worst thing here by far, there are absolutely no thermogenics in Superstim which damages its ability to help you burn fat and essentially see results. The only energy booster is caffeine (that we don’t know the dosage of), and the only appetite suppressant is Yohimbe which may cause side effects!
On top of that the whole product is wrapped in a proprietary blend that stops us knowing how much of each ingredient is used, and by extension how effective it will be.

There are two main risks when it comes to Superstim: the caffeine and the Yohimbe.
Usually caffeine is fine in a fat burner, but as this is a proprietary blend and that the product is called ‘Superstim’ we can assume there’s a lot of it.
Too much caffeine can lead to:
- Light Headedness
- Raised Blood Pressure
Whereas going over the recommended dose of Yohimbe (0.2mg/kg of body weight) can lead to:
- Gastrointestinal Distress
Driven Sports Superstim Review Conclusion
Overall, Superstim falls very short of the standards of a good fat burner.
The only benefit we could pull out of this product is that it contains caffeine – and that might be a potential side effect!
Here’s what you need to know:
- Poor Servings – With only one serving a day, there’s not enough nutrients delivered for constant fat burning
- Ineffective Ingredients – No thermogenics in this product
- Proprietary Blend – No indication of how much of each nutrient has been used
- Potential Side Effects – The caffeine and yohimbe could cause side effects if improperly dosed
It’s a long list of problems with not a lot of benefits. If you’re looking for fast, effective and above all safe fat loss, I suggest you check out our current top rated fat burner in the link below:
