Turn up the heat with Thermal BLACK Series Fat Burner, the new pinnacle of thermogenic supplements. Unlike other fat burners, Thermal BLACK brings more to the table than just a feeling – it actually works, and it works well! With a profile of clinically-validated ingredients, your search for the ultimate fat burner ends here.
Take a deeper look into Thermal BLACK and you will find:
- Caffeine Anhydrous and Infinergy™ DiCaffeine Malate – Caffeine is well-known, but this is not your typical caffeine. The addition of malate to two caffeine molecules smooths any agitation from, and prolongs the metabolic-boosting effects of, caffeine.
CapsiAtra™ Dihydrocapsiate – Enhances insulin sensitivity, protecting your hard-working body from storing carbohydrates as body fat and stuffing your muscles full of glycogen.
- Advantra Z® - Facilitates fat loss without the cracked out stim feeling, making Thermal BLACK the best physique boosting supplement available.
Clearly, Thermal BLACK is on to something, but with a multi-faceted approach to fat burning, Thermal BLACK doesn’t stop there.
The rest of the ingredients add neurotransmitter support, reduce stress, crush lipogenic hormone production, provide complete adrenergic stimulation, and enhance anti-oxidation status.
Just like Thermal BLACK has definitively differentiated itself from the rest of the thermogenic market, Thermal BLACK will certainly help YOU stand out from your competition!

THERMAL NRG COMPLEX
TeaCrine is concentrated nature-identical theacrine that delivers energy shown to last up to 6 hours.
- Theacrine's multi-faceted effects come from the synergistic reactions between two neural pathways: dopaminergic and adenosinergic pathways.
- By affecting these pathways, Theacrine accelerates metabolism, increases energy production, and enables competitive athletes, active individuals and driven professionals to better their physical and mental performance.
- TeaCrine also helps to maintain inflammation within the normal range, which helps decrease muscle and joint discomfort during and following exercise.
L-Theanine is an amino acid, that when consumed produces GABA and glutamate, two neurotransmitters that act on the brain to reduce the perceived stress.
- Research suggests that L-Theanine’s biggest supplemental role may be in taking the “edge” off of other stimulants.
- A combination of L-Theanine with caffeine is noted to be synergistic in promoting thermogenesis, cognition, and attention.
- Giesbrecht et al. found the combination of L-theanine and caffeine significantly improved accuracy during task switching, self-reported alertness, and reduced self-reported tiredness.
CapsiAtra™ is a dihydrocapsiate compound naturally found in CH-19 Sweet peppers that holds clinical benefits in weight management, endurance, and metabolism.
- 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.
Advantra Z is derived from the immature bitter orange fruit, a GRAS (generally recognized as safe) food ingredient traditionally used for dietary and medicinal purposes.
- Advantra Z activates receptors that promote the release of fat from fat cells where it can be used as energy.
- Advantra Z may also suppress appetite and increase metabolism
- Several studies exist showing that not only Advantra Z is very effective for fat loss, but it is also very safe.
- Lopez et. al (2013) discovered subjects supplementing with a weight loss product containing Advantra Z were able to enhance body composition, reduce hip and waist girth, and increase energy levels in overweight me and women.
XANTHINE ENERGY MATRIX
Caffeine Anhydrous is simply caffeine with no water (around 0.05%). This has been shown to make caffeine anhydrous more potent because the body will absorb it more readily.
- 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%
Dicaffeine Malate, as the name implies, is the combination of caffeine and malic acid.
- Adding malic acid to caffeine is thought to calm the digestive effects of caffeine and thought to replenish the energy produced by caffeine (either through increased fat oxidation or ATP production).
- Malic acid may also weaken the feeling of a caffeine crash and slow tolerance development to caffeine.
Beta-Phenylethylamine is a neuromodulator responsible for the release of norepinephrine and dopamine which can act as powerful mood enhancers.
APPETITE SUPPRESSION MATRIX
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a mitochondrial fatty acid that is highly involved in energy metabolism. It is synthesized in the body and can be consumed through eating meats and minimally in some fruits/vegetables.
- ALA has been shown to keep insulin levels lower and act as a mild appetite suppressant.
- ALA has also been shown to be of 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 anti-oxidant defenses.
- It is also seen as an anti-aging compound since it can reverse some of the oxidant damage related effects of aging.
Rauwolscine is a central nervous system stimulant that is classified as an alpha-2 agonist.
- As an alpha 2 agonist, Rauwolscine will block alpha-2 receptors. This results in the body releasing more norepinephrine - which gives you a feeling of overall well being.
- As a bonus to blocking the alpha-2 receptors - Rauwolscine may prevent the formation of new fat tissue.
Q: What is the best way to take Thermal Black?
A: As a dietary supplement, take one serving (1 Capsules) in the morning, with 8-10oz of water. To assess your tolerance, take with food initially and take ONLY 1 serving within a 12 hour period. DO NOT TAKE within 6 hours of bedtime.
Q: Do you recommend combining Thermal Black with pre workouts or other stimulants?
A: Due to the high caffeine content found in Thermal Black (in order to produce a thermogenic effect) we DO NOT recommend stacking it with your pre workout or other stimulants.
If you love pre workouts, check out Rhino Rampage Pumped for insane workouts without the extra caffeine.
Q: How is TeaCrine different from caffeine?
A: TeaCrine is molecularly similar to caffeine, but has many unique properties as well. TeaCrine has a longer duration of action, is non-habituating, improves mood and decreases feelings of stress and irritability, and is less likely to disrupt sleep.
And while TeaCrine delivers clean energy without habituation, research is underway that shows combining TeaCrine with caffeine can have additive benefits.
