'Maximuscle Thermobol' is Maximuscle's contribution to the fat
burner market. As per usual, it's presented in a very flashy looking
bottle and with a label containing a plethora of statistics and
overly complex science speak. I'll do what I can to break it down for
anyone who has better things to do than read up on obscure
chemical names. Ready? Ok let's get started then.
Thermobol contains a particularly high concentration of caffeine and
tea polyphenols, along with an ingredient called "Synephrine" that
reputedly causes the body to burn fat while resting. Another
of its major selling points is the inclusion of Bioperine, and extract
from the black pepper plant that allows more of the supplement's
nutrients to be absorbed more easily.
I was initially dismayed by the size of the Thermobol capsules. They
are roughly twice the size of other fat burners, and you'd be forgiven
for thinking they are, in fact, suppositories! In spite of the
intimidating size these capsules are fairly easy to swallow and have no
particular after taste as far as I could tell, but in the minutes after
consumption I did experience a faint and uncomfortable burning
sensation in my chest. In the traditional manner, I took one full
course of this Maximuscle offering. The results were pleasing, and the side effects eg
mood swings or indigestion, that are common with fat burning supplements were mild.
Without altering my diet or exercise regime, I lost roughly 0.7% body fat and
I suspect I may have lost more if I'd continued the full Maximuscle Thermobol
course. Despite those positives, I wasn't completely happy with my experience
of this product. Overpricing (common when dealing with Maximuscle
products) is an issue, and I never truly felt like I was taking a
high strength supplement.
Another problem was a decrease in mental agility, although when taking caffeine
type supplements this is always a small risk anyhow. The principle of Thermobol is
quite simple. It's designed to kick start your metabolism and keep it running at a higher
level than normal. This means that its thermogenic properties help you to naturally
burn fat throughout the day as you go about your normal day to day life.
Overall, Maximuscle have done a decent job of producing an effective
supplement in the form of Thermobol. However, when compared with the
truly epic MX LS7,
the Maximuscle Thermobol Review has shown it is often found wanting.
I'd suggest this supplement if you fancy a slightly milder experience,
but otherwise you should spend your money elsewhere, try reading the
Isatori MX LS7 Review.
