What You Should Know
Ripped Fuel was one of the few diet supplements that changed their formulation after the ban on ephedra was enforced. The original Ripped Fuel contained ephedra, the current version contains Bitter Orange Extract. The official website for Ripped Fuel offers consumers a place to research the product and ask questions about the formulation through a contact us page. Twinlabs is the manufacturer of Ripped Fuel and despite changing the formula, this weight loss supplement has not gained back any of the popularity lost in the ephedra scare.
Ripped Fuel is sold online through various third party retailers for as little as $16.29 per bottle of 60 capsules. This is a one month supply when taken as directed on the bottle.

Ripped Fuel claims to boost the metabolism so the user can lose more weight. The ingredient list offer some insight into the method behind this claim. There is several sources of caffeine including straight caffeine and Guarana Extract. Multiple stimulants in one weight loss product can lead to jitters, nausea and sleeplessness.
In addition to these stimulant ingredients there is a lengthy warning included on many websites that sell the Ripped Fuel product. People who are sensitive to caffeine, pregnant, nursing, have high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, nervous tendencies or anxiety should not take the Ripped Fuel weight loss supplement. There are also warnings about taking Ripped Fuel if antidepressants are currently being used. Consumers who have PKU, a pigmentation disease or a malignant melanoma that is pigmented should not take Ripped Fuel either.
When a weight loss product has a long warning the consumer should beware of the formulation. Weight loss supplements can be safe and clinically proven to work for everyone and taking a chance on a supplement that is clearly unhealthy for so many people is a risk that is not needed in todayÃs weight loss market.

Ripped Fuel was a very popular weight loss supplement when it contained ephedra. Once that ingredient was banned, the new formula with Bitter Orange did not regain that popularity. As a matter of fact, the long warning statement makes this product unsafe for many people to use no matter how well it helps them to lose weight. We cannot support this product at the time of this review because weight loss can be safe for everyone not just a select few.
