Not all Fat Burners are created equal. Perhaps more importantly, virtually none of these fat burners are specifically formulated for women. That is, until FEMMEBURN entered the supplement arena!
FEMMEBURN is a highly-effective and clinically-dosed thermogenic fat burner that is formulated to fit the needs of HER metabolism and biochemistry using a purpose-built ingredient profile and dosing strategy.
- Diindolylmethane (DIIM) - Detoxifies estrogens (there are 4 major types of estrogen with additional sub-classifications) to reduce body fat storage.
- Yohimbine HCl - Acts as an alpha 2 adrenergic receptor antagonist to stop the adrenals from shutting down fat loss. The alpha 2 adrenergic receptors are prevalent in body fat along the thigh, and yohimbine has been shown to preferentially reduce thigh fat.
- L-5-Hydroxytryptophan – Functions as an appetite suppressant to ease the stresses of dieting, which can easily compound its effects by reducing fat storage due to elevated stress!
- Ashwagandha Extract – A staple in Ayurvedic medicine. For good reason too, as it reduces cortisol, increases exercise performance, and beneficially modulates sex hormone profiles in women.
- Acetyl L-Carnitine - Without Carnitine, fats cannot be metabolized. Carnitine escorts body fats to the mitochondria where they can be broken down.
- Caffeine Anhydrous – Stimulates metabolism, increases energy expenditure, and upregulates the body’s reliance on fat as fuel.
- CapsiAtra™ – Enhances insulin sensitivity, protecting your hard-working body from storing carbohydrates as body fat and fills your muscles with glycogen.
FOR HER means that this product was designed and formulated to deliver the greatest thermogenic and fat burning results to female-specific health and fitness goals.
But that’s not all, FEMMEBURN can also help to regulate estrogen at the receptor level which will help to alleviate fat in those difficult areas, such as the booty, legs, lower back, and abs!
You can buy FEMMEBURN as a standalone or as part of the synergistically formulated SLIM KIT that was designed to work in unison to transform you into the leanest version of yourself with the most effective supplementation approach available!

Ingredient ProfileMETABOLIC MATRIX
- In supplement form, ALA has shown benefit against various forms of oxidation and inflammation. These effects carry on to benefits that protect one from heart diseases, liver diseases, diabetes, and neurological decline with age.
- ALA is also a potent anti-oxidant compound. It works with mitochondria and the body's natural antioxidant defenses.
- It is also seen as an anti-aging compound since it can reverse some of the oxidant damage related effects of aging.
- 5-HTP can increase endogenous cortisol which releases anabolic hormones (testosterone and insulin) and produces a greater anabolic response during weight training sessions.
- 5-HTP also may promote appetite suppression and lead to a reduction in weight
- It also serves an important role in helping brain function, blood cells, gastrointestinal system.
- Ceci et al. (1989) found 5-HTP in obese women (BMI 30-40) was associated with a reduction of calories by approximately 38% (placebo recorded at 20%) over 5 weeks, resulting in weight loss.
- It helps to reduce accumulation of uric acid in the bladder and help the overall health and productivity of the urinary tract.
- Uva-Ursi may also help reduce high blood pressure and bloating.
- It's anti-inflammatory effects can help to tighten upper layers of the mucous membrane - relieving irritation and improving tissue firmness.
- It also shows promise for relieving insomnia and stress-induced bouts of depression.
- Ashwagandha is able to to mitigate stress and anxiety by reducing cortisol concentrations and the immunosuppressive effect of stress in the body.
- Ashwagandha can improve the formation of memories, and may be able to treat Alzheimer’s disease due to its ability to prevent the degradation of brain cells, making the herb a neuroprotectant.
- In a study conducted by Andrade et al. (2000), six weeks supplementation of Ashwagandha in persons with diagnosed generalized anxiety disorder (mixed anxiety and depression) noted significant improvements in both depression and anxiety symptoms.
- DIM has potent effects on estrogen metabolism and is able to keep the body relatively balanced by preventing either drastic increases or decreases in estrogen.
- Helps control the rates of 2-hydroxylation of estrogen, which plays a significant role in estrogen potency and, therefore, body fat deposition.
- DIM can both inhibit the aromatase enzyme (and prevent the conversion of testosterone into estrogen) and it can act on more potent forms of estrogen and convert them into less potent forms; this conversion reduces the overall effects of estrogen in the body.
- Yohimbine may act as a fat burning compound by acting upon the adrenergic receptor system of fat cells, which regulate thermogenesis.
- The specific adrenergic receptors affected by yohimbine are located in troublesome body fat areas, such as the hips and thighs.
- In some cases, Yohimbine increases blood vessel dilation which may enhance energy levels during workouts.
- Increases in cognitive performance have also been noted in those supplementing with Yohimbine.
- A study conducted by Ostojic (2006) found elite soccer players who supplemented with Yohimbine for 21 days reduced average body fat levels by 2.2%.
- L-Carnitine has also been shown to reduce exercise-induced muscle damage, muscular fatigue, and reduce soreness.
- A study conducted by Volek et al. (2002) found that supplementation with L-Carnitine daily for one week in healthy resistance trained men was able to reduce markers of muscle damage after weight lifting. It was also discovered that biomarkers of oxidative damage reduced to baseline sooner than placebo.
- Ho et al. (2010) discovered that middle-aged males and females who supplemented with L-Carnitine over a 24-day period experienced less muscle damage and soreness following exercise and had less oxidative markers in serum after exercise.
- Although caffeine can affect a wide variety of motor and mental functions it is most commonly used to improve endurance exercise, focus, and cognitive performance, and improve energy levels.
- Caffeine has also been shown to have a thermogenic effect (heating/calorie burning) at rest and may increase the use of fats for fuel during exercise.
- According to the research higher doses of caffeine, in the 250-450mg range, are needed to provide an ergogenic benefit.
- In a study conducted by Astorino et al. (2010), active men given caffeine before resistance training were able to increase maximal torque, power, and volume by 5-8%
- The fruit from the Guarana plant is high in caffeine and has been shown to improve cognitive faculties, aid in fat loss, and increase energy as well as endurance capabilities.
- CapsiAtra™ has the ability to increase resting energy expenditure (REE) – allowing the body to burn off more calories than normal, and stimulate thermogenesis – allowing the body to burn calories off of stored fats.
- It also enhances glycogen sparing, promoting an increase in energy production through the burning off of fat stored within the body instead of carbohydrates.
- Galgani et al. (2010) discovered subjects who supplemented with Dihydrocapsiate over a one month period were able to increase their resting metabolic rate on a daily basis compared to placebo.
