Review Overview: What does Rapid Cuts Extreme do?
Rapid Cuts Extreme is one of the newer products from company Bad Boy Nutrition.
Claimed to be full of ‘formulated weight management capsules’, the product contains a total of 11 ingredients.
However, in terms of what Rapid Cuts Extreme does we found the benefits that Bad Boy Nutrition had made to be a little underwhelming:
- Formulated Weight Management Capsules
- 11 Active ingredients
- Reduces Fatigue and Tiredness (Vitamin B6)
- Contributies to a normal energy-yielding metabolism (Vitmain B6)
- 25 Day Supply Pack
The only benefit that seems to be set in stone in that write up is that this product contains Vitamin B6. So what sets Rapid Cuts Extreme apart from other fat burners?
And why should we spend our money on it over another product?
How does Rapid Cuts Extreme Work?
Unfortunately, this is a product with one serving per day. This may make it sound more convenient but don’t be fooled – 1 serving a day is a big no-no in the fat burning world.
As just one serving, thermogenesis and metabolism will peak for a time, but soon after there will be a strong energy crash.
3-4 servings per day ensure that thermogenesis is at a constant, and that energy levels stay topped up throughout the day. This ensures a slow decent back to normal levels, rather than a huge peak and a drop.
Back to Rapid Cuts Extreme, the daily serving is recommended to be 2 capsules for the first 5 days, followed by upping the dosage to 3.
Now let’s have a look at those ingredients (this is for 3 capsules):
Sadly, we’re off to a rocky start with 400mg of Bitter Orange Powder (synephrine).
We’re not fans of synephrine, mainly because it can cause dangerous side effects when taking over 10-20mg three times a day or when mixed with caffeine or caffeinated herbs. If that’s the case I’m pretty sure 400mg in one dose falls into the dangerous category – plus there are both caffeine and caffeinated herbs in this product.
When it’s not being dangerous, synephrine has been seen to work as a stimulant – however studies confirm that it does not benefit the fat burning process. Why put this in?
Without the synephrine this 250mg of caffeine anhydrous would’ve been great.
Caffeine is a top quality stimulant. It promotes wakefulness in the body and helps boost metabolism. It is also linked to increasing power output during workouts.
There shouldn’t be a problem with this L-Tyrosine… however 250mg may not be enough.
L-Tyrosine is an effective anti-stress amino acid. Given the amount stimulants in this product it may serve some purpose here. However, reports have said the effective dosage of L-Tyrosine is noted anywhere between the 500 – 2000mg area. Rapid Cuts Extreme only uses half of the minimum amount. Success here looks doubtful.
The 100mg of Green Coffee Bean Extract should be good though.
Green Coffee is great for fat burning. The chlorogenic acid that makes up part of the unroasted bean helps the liver break down glucose. This breakdown uses up most of the body’s supply, so it must turn to other energy sources like fat cells to keep going.
Green Tea is also a good ingredient, although they only use 100mg here.
Yes, Rapid Cuts Extreme should have this as the starring ingredient. Green Tea extract is one of the best natural fat burning compounds in the world. Not only does the caffeine boost metabolism, but the catechins inside the herb boost norepinephrine in the body. The fat burning hormone. This promotes thermogenesis throughout the body and helps with weight loss.
100mg of Cayenne Pepper and 50mg of Capsicum are other thermogenic powerhouses.
Red pepper is exactly what you need if you’re looking to burn extra calories. The capsicum in the pepper raises the body’s core temperature. To regulate this the body begins cooling itself, which requires additional energy and helps burn more calories.
And now the incredible 10mg of Vitamin B6…
Okay there is a lot of this vitamin in Rapid Cuts Extreme, but the body can only absorb so much at a time. B6 essentially helps to raise the body’s metabolism through a reaction called gluconeogenesis, which turns glycogen into glucose. This stops the body craving more, mainly from things like carbohydrates.
Finally 200Ug of chromium to help it all along the way.
The chromium is mainly to help with the glucose processes by regulating the metabolism of it along with insulin sensitivity. That said however studies have shown that supplementing chromium does not always produce reliable results and may be ineffective.
P.S. We would’ve mentioned the L-Carnitine in this product but there is only 50mg. There needs to be at least 500 – 2500mg for it to make any considerable difference to physical performance or power output.
Lastly, the black pepper is there just to help with absorption, no direct benefit towards fat burning. If you want to see the current top fat burning ingredients on the market, click the link below.
Where to buy Rapid Cuts Extreme
Rapid Cuts Extreme can be bought from a numerous amount of online and offline vendors. We suggest shopping around to find the best price.
Yes, unfortunately the synephrine mixed with the stimulants in this product can lead to side effects.
These usually present as:
- Raised Blood Pressure
- Increased Risk of Heart Attack
- Increased Risk of Stroke
It also doesn’t help that there is way more than the recommended dosage of synephrine in this product and that could lead to some serious health risks and problems.
Rapid Cuts Extreme Review Conclusion
Although Rapid Cuts Extreme contains some good proven ingredients: Green Tea, Green Coffee Bean, Cayenne Pepper, Caffeine – but a lot of these products are under-dosed. Instead they take a back seat to the main ingredient Bitter Orange which combined with the above can lead to a whole host of side effects.
Also this product makes no attempt to work towards appetite suppression and instead focuses on thermogenesis and energy, which isn’t bad, but the synephrine could’ve been swapped out for glucomannan (appetite suppressant) and this product would’ve been spectacular.
The servings need revising as well. It needs to be broken up into 3-4 for the ingredients to have the most positive effect.
This product shows promise if Bad Boy Nutrition decide to revise a few aspects of it. Until then, this product scores only 2 and half stars:
