Universal Nutrition Ripped Fast Reviews

Universal Ripped FastUniversal Nutrition is a trusted name in body building supplements.  They’ve been around for more than thirty years and are very well known in the body building community. 

Unfortunately I was really disappointed by the lack of information on the official website regarding this–and their other products.

I was also disappointed by the lack of customer testimonials.

Testimonials–outside of an official website–are a great way of gauging a product’s effectiveness.  And they’re free.  A lack of testimonials could signify a lack of product success.


Universal Nutrition’s “Ripped Fast” is an encapsulated product said to be an “Advanced, High Potency Fat Burner.”  Here are the claims:

  • Helps get rid of subcutaneous fat that hides natural muscle striations and makes you look smooth.
  • Contains high potency lipotropics, energizers and herbals to reduce water retention.
  • Contains choline, inositol and chromium-three important lipotropic and insulin-regulating nutrients.

It’s cheap at only $21.95 from the official website (and even cheaper elsewhere online.)  But is it really effective?

Let’s look at the ingredients…

Ingredients in Universal Nutrition Ripped Fast

In every 4 capsule dose Universal Nutrition Ripped Fast contains:

  • Chromium 200 mcg-a clinically proven blood sugar regulator that caused test subjects to eat 365 less calories a day. It does this by taking away your cravings for sweets and high-carb foods and by correctly utilizing your blood sugar for energy rather than storing it as fat.  You need 200-400 mcg’s for an effective dose, so this dose is at the lower end of the scale but still effective.
  • Vitamin B6 2 mg-B vitamins are ‘stress’ vitamins and provide energy.  Though good for you, they are not going to show measurable weight loss results.
  • Caffeine Anhydrous 125 mg-dehydrated caffeine. This is the cheapest and most common of diet pill/fat burner stimulants and 125 mg is not a high dose.  It’s about the equivalent of two cups of coffee.
  • Green Tea 250 mg-another clinically proven weight loss ingredient high in antioxidants and EGCG’s to heal the body, raise metabolic rate and oxidise fat. You need 400 mg’s for this ingredient to really be effective, so this dose is too low.

Diuretic and Metabolic Complex 1000 mg containing:

  • Alfalfa-makes you pee
  • Dandelion Root-makes you pee
  • Uva Ursi-to treat urinary tract infections
  • Cayenne-hot chili pepper thought to raise metabolic rate.
  • Cha De Bugre-popular in Brazil-thought to raise metabolic rate.

Lipotropic Complex 750 mg containing:

  • Choline Bitratrate-aids in the metabolism of fats and nourishes the nervous system.
  • Lecithin (Soy)-supports liver health and helps with cholesterol–but there is no evidence it supports weight loss.
  • Inositol-combined with choline, Inositol stimulates and works to energize a sluggish metabolism.

Unfortunately I am not a fan of proprietary blends–even ones in higher dosage like these.  They hide ineffective quantities of the ingredients that may help with weight loss and fat burning, and too much of cheaper, less effective ingredients.

You have a couple of good ingredients here.  Chromium works and is in an ‘okay’ dosage in this blend.

Caffeine and Green Tea are good–but you’re not getting enough.

And there’s plenty of ingredients to help you lose water weight. 

But will you actually burn fat?  I doubt it.

Does Universal Nutrition Ripped Fast Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?

I could not find a money-back guarantee anywhere on the site–which is disappointing considering they are so well known and reputable.  In my book a lack of guarantee means a lack of confidence in their product working.

Final Thoughts

Universal Nutrition Ripped Fast isn’t the worst fat burner I’ve seen, but it’s certainly not the best either.  It seems to be more based on water weight loss than fat loss–and let’s face it, water loss is temporary and you’re not losing real weight. 

I’m really very disappointed–especially with the lack of refund. 

(Yes, DISAPPOINTMENT seems to be the general theme of this review.  I’ve used the word FIVE times!)

You should rely instead on a fat burner that you know will work–one that has at least SIX clinically proven weight loss ingredients–no ‘prop blends’ in sight–and a 100% lifetime money back guarantee. 

After all, there’s more to a fat burner than a name…

Sorry to disappoint  you!

(Oops!  That’s ‘six’!)
