Grenade Black Ops Review
As a hardened reviewer, I consider myself immune to most of the marketing razzle dazzle supplements trot out. But I have to admit the idea of getting shredded with military precision still gets me pretty excited, so Grenade Black Ops was always going to get a look.
The makers claim it has a shorter action time than Grenade Thermo, their previous burner.
This apparently makes it better suited to High Intensity Interval Training, but essentially the aims are the same. Lower body fat, increased energy and improved focus are the objectives, so is it mission accomplished.
All the ingredients are lined up awaiting inspection, which should be your starting point for selecting a good burner. There’s never any need to camouflage ingredients behind proprietary blends.
Let’s engage! (Sorry, you can tell I’m excited, can’t you?)
How Does It Work?
At a Glance
- Green tea & cayenne to promote thermogenisis
- Caffeine to stimulate metabolism and energy
- Vitamin B6 to support fat burning
- Blue green algae to increase power output
- Taurine for stamina
- Choline to sharpen focus
Grenade Black Ops is a little patchy to say the least. The cayenne peper is there in a solid amount and will definitely have an effect, as will the caffeine, though there may be too much for some so buckle up for a bumpy ride. After that there’s more a problem with dosage than anything. Green tea is a great choice and deserves more than just a 100mg, while blue green algae and choline have promise, but come in at under active doses according to research. On the flip side, based on clinical evidence taurine’s amount is generous. The details let Grenade Black Ops down.
Just over £20 for 100 capsules is cheap by burner standards and this combined with the cool packaging and slick marketing might make it tempting to some. It’s worth remembering though – as you’ll see if you read on- that you’re only really paying for two, maybe three guarunteed effective ingredients. Better to save your money and maybe shell out a little more for a brand with no weak links.
We always prefer brands to make room for a dedicated testimonial section, and even though Blacks Ops does offer user reviews, there’s nothing like the detail we need. The Amazon reviews on balance are positive, but there are plenty of people claiming it did nothing for them or that they found the stimulant hit unpleasant. You want to be sure about these products before you commit to buy, and retail reviews just don’t offer enough.
There’s plenty to give Grenade Black Ops credit for here. It’s made in Britain and has to apply with manufacturing laws, so isn’t dangerous and it doesn’t hide anything behind proprietary blends. There are also clinical studies cited for each formula choice on the offical website. However a lot of those studies and others actually user higher levels to get results than the supplement offers and a few have only so far been tested on rats.
Alan and Juliet Barret a husband and wife team based in the U.K city of Coventry run Grenade. They claim to work with special forces to develop supplements which will give the absolute pinnacle of performance. They have a very impressive set up, with wide range of supplements that ship worldwide (though Black Ops doesn’t appear to have reached the U.S) We take issue with their formula choices but other than that, they seem very legit.
How Do I Take It?
Users should take 2 capsules immediately on waking then another 2 half an hour before exercise (or lunch on non-workout days)
This misses the mark in our opinion. As we always say, just 2 servings positioned that early are bound to see effects tail off before you do.
We know Grenade say this product is designed to have a shorter action time, but why? Far better to find a well rounded burner that uses 4 evenly spaced servings to give you a full day of fat blitzing.
Any Grenade Black Ops Side Effects?
Grenade Black Ops say their formula manages to avoid the jitters you get with a lot of burners that use stimulant. But with almost 300mg per serving we struggle to see how.
Unless your the kind of person who’s injecting espresso once or twice a day, chances are the caffeine will be a bit of a shock to the system. Racing heart, headaches, nausea, insomnia – everything you’d expect from a caffeine happy product, are a possibility.
Where Can I Get It?
You can purchase 100 caps of Grenade Black Ops from Amazon.co.uk for £21.84. It is not currently widely available in the U.S.
Grenade Black Ops falls into the trap a lot of burners do by not providing any help with appetite. Maybe they feel you should have the will power to resist, but when you’re losing weight that fridge is a clear and present danger. How hard is it to include a naturally fiberous ingredient to keep the user feeling full?
Grenade Black Ops is more up and down than a platoon of new recruits on an obstacle course. Some good ingredients and a reasonable price are let down some poor dosing choices and a serving schedule that needs work. There’s definitely better to be had out there.
