There’s no shortage of fat burning supplements available today but one that stands apart from the rest is Pharmafreak Ripped Freak. Check out our Ripped Freak review for the low down on this popular fat burner.
Ripped Freak is a one-of-a-kind hybrid fat burner with a unique formula and selection of ingredients to target key fat-loss processes. It contains clinically validated doses of key active ingredients to support healthy fat loss and maximise intensity and strength.
If you haven’t heard of Ripped Freak, you’ve probably at least seen the unmissable yellow and red packaging. Unlike other fat burners that only target one fat-loss mechanism, Ripped Freak helps boost metabolic rate and thermogenesis, supports fat mobilization, sustained energy release, and decreases appetite. Forget taking multiple pills before every meal, with Ripped Freak you take one capsule in the morning and an optional one capsule in the afternoon. Wow!
While Ripped Freak is marketed at hardcore bodybuilders and extreme athletes, many everyday gym goers and people looking to lose weight have found results with the fat burner. Ripped Freak is suitable for both men and women.
Olea Europaea (OA)
This unique stimulant extract comes from the Olive Leaf and provides adrenaline and protein level support. OA helps to stimulate beta-adrenergic receptors and supports the release of the fat-burning hormones, norepinephrine and epinephrine, to speed up fat loss.
Red Pepper Extract
Red Pepper Extract supports an increase in uncoupling proteins (UCPs). This results in an increase in oxygen consumption and dispersing of energy as heat (thermogenesis) during exercise and rest.
Green coffee bean extract comes from unroasted coffee beans. Coffee beans have fat burning and antioxidant effects. Roasting the coffee beans removes the compound chlorogenic acid which is responsible for the aforementioned benefits. Another extract and benefit of green coffee beans is caffeine.
Caffeine increases your metabolic rate and kick starts the process of lipolysis which is when your body releases free fatty acids into the bloodstream. This happens when your body breaks down stored fat in your body and converts it into energy. Caffeine also has the nice benefit of giving you an energy boost, making you more alert, and temporarily fighting off drowsiness. When taken before a workout, it can give you the energy to work harder and for longer so you get results faster.
Green Tea Extract (GTE) is a powerful fat burner through a rather complex cellular mechanism which involves catechins and caffeine. This potent mix of catechins and caffeine increases the production of norepinephrine to support fat loss.

As with any supplement, you should always read the entire label before use and seek professional advice before starting any new supplement. Some users have reported the following side effects after using Ripped Freak:
- Upset stomach
- Anxiety, nervousness or jitters
Ripped freak does contain a large amount of caffeine so if you are sensitive to caffeine or using other caffeine-based or stimulant products Ripped Feak may not be the right product for you.
Overall conclusion of our Ripped Freak Review
Ripped Freak is a great fat burner and we can definitely see why it is so popular. Key fat burning ingredients such as Green Tea, Red Pepper, and Caffeine target key fat-loss mechanisms for maximum results. We like that you only need to take one capsule, two a day maximum, and that it can also be used as a pre-workout. The only downsides of the product is the large caffeine content which may not agree with everyone and the need to cycle on and off the product.
