PhysiqueSeries Stim-Free Unique Ingredients
Acetyl L-Carnitine, 750 mg
Acetyl L-Carnitine, or ALCAR, is an amino acid that’s made by your body and can be found in animal meats. It serves a number of functions, like shuttling fuel to cells, increasing both mental and physical energy, enhancing cognition and promoting better muscular recovery . ALCAR has also been shown to help improve bodily fat burn during high-intensity exercise .
Rhodiola Rosea, 100 mg
Naturally found in frigid arctic climates, Rhodiola Rosea is an adaptogenic herb that’s been used for centuries to help remedy imbalances like stress, anxiety, fatigue, and depression . Interestingly, Rhodiola has been shown to enhance exercise performance by reducing the body’s perceived exertion . Interestingly, it may also help improve cognition. One study involving students showed an increase in exam scores by 8.4% compared to placebo .
Fucoxanthin, 10 mg
Fucoxanthin is the main carotenoid found in most brown seaweeds. Carotenoids are the pigments which give color to plant parts like fruits, vegetables, and leaves. Some preliminary research suggests Fucoxanthin can help promote metabolism (burn fat), balance blood glucose levels, lower inflammation, and inhibit the buildup of abdominal and liver fat [6, 7]. While more studies need to be done, it appears very promising for weight loss and health.

PhysiqueSeries Stimulant Unique Ingredients:
Green Tea (50% EGCG), 400 mg
Green Tea has a long and well-known reputation for positive health benefits. One of its main uses is to fight obesity. It does this with certain active compounds called catechins. Catechins promote healthy fat oxidation and help prevent bad LDL cholesterol from building up . What’s more, the EGCG in Stimulant has been seen to improve effectivity with l-theanine.
L-Tyrosine, 300 mg
L-Tyrosine is an effective amino-acid used to help protect your well being and reduce perceptive stress associated with using fat burners or dieting . Clinical studies with combat personnel during stressful conditions have shown L-Tyrosine to help significantly reduce fatigue, improve mental cognition and elevate one’s mood without negative any noted side effects . In short, L-Tyrosine can help your body maintain mental and physical performance for better fat burning results.
L-Theanine, 240 mg
L-Theanine is a non-essential amino acid that acts as a brain neurotransmitter. It helps promote relaxation without sedation, which lowers perceptive stress and increases mental focus . Found in Green Tea, L-Theanine has been shown to work synergistically with Caffeine for an improved focus and fat loss without any jitters . It also appears to help regulate proper blood nitric oxide levels, reduce some anxiety and improve quality of life.
Caffeine Anhydrous, 240 mg
Caffeine has a wide range of health benefits to offer, like elevating mood and curbing hunger to name a few [13, 14]. One of its main effects, though, is its ability to induce thermogenesis. Thermogenesis is a bodily process that raises metabolism and specifically burns fat for energy.
In addition to being one of the most clinically studied ingredients to ever exist, caffeine works synergistically with several other ingredients in Stimulant, including l-theanine and Green Tea.
Salicin (White Willow) Bark Extract, 120 mg
Derived from white willow bark, salicin appears to be anti-inflammatory, anti-obesity and to also inhibit angiogenesis – a process essential for tumor progression . Once ingested, your body will metabolize salicin and convert it into salicylic acid. This compound is chemically similar to the drug aspirin and has been traditionally used as a natural remedy to alleviate different types of pain [16, 17]. Researchers have found it also enhances the thermogenic (fat burning) effects synephrine . This is more apparent in individuals who are dieting.
Synephrine HCL, 25 mg
Extracted from the peels of bitter citrus fruits, synephrine HCl is a highly effective fat burner. Synephrine works like ephedrine, however, little seems to pass the blood-brain barrier . So, you get all of the benefits without any side effects associated with ephedra. That said, studies have found synephrine to raise one’s basal metabolic rate by as much as 65 kcal . Basically, this means it helps induce thermogenesis, resulting in more burnt calories over time. It’s also been shown to work synergistically with ingredients like caffeine and enhance fat burning efficiency .
What ingredients do they both share?
TL Stimulant and Stim-Free share the 3 ingredients Forslean, Cayenne Pepper, and 5-HTP.
Forslean (10% forskolin), 500 mg
Derived from Coleus Forskholli, Forslean is an herb that naturally improves your body’s fat burning processes. One clinical trial showed Forslean to increase lean body mass while significantly lowering body fat and general fat mass . In terms of safety, researchers have found Forslean exhibit’s a great safety record and is also well tolerated by the body .
Cayenne Pepper Extract, 50 mg
Cayenne Pepper gets its ‘kick’ from a bioactive compound called Capsaicin. Capsaicin is naturally produced in spicy red chili peppers and is used as both a medicine and spice.
Despite how it may make your taste buds feel, capsaicin is very beneficial to take. It’s been seen to help weight loss by inducing thermogenesis, raising metabolism and reducing overeating [24, 25]. Although the immediate caloric burn is minimal, it will add up over time.
It should be noted that Cayenne Pepper has been eaten by humans for thousands of years. When consumed in moderation, you likely won’t feel any negative effects besides some warmth. It should be noted that Cayenne Pepper is “generally recognized as safe to eat” by the FDA .
5-HTP, 300 mg
5-Hydroxytryptophan, or 5-HTP, is an amino acid that functions as an appetite suppressant and is used to produce the hormone serotonin. Serotonin works by shuttling cellular signals. Low levels of this hormone can cause problems like overeating and weight gain. It’s also been shown to work synergistically with other ingredients in TL Stimulant to raise overall fat burn.
As a bonus, 5-HTP is also used to make Melatonin (by way of Serotonin). Melatonin helps regulate your body’s natural sleep cycle. Not enough rest can cause issues, particularly fat gain.
So, which Fat Burner should I take?
Finding out whether you should take a stimulative or non-stimulative fat burner ultimately depends on you, and there really isn’t a wrong answer. Both Fat Burners are the same in the sense that they’re designed to provide results- the only difference is their strategy of doing so.
A good place to start is by asking yourself a few questions.
Do you want something that won’t provide noticeable energy or you might be sensitive to stimulating ingredients like caffeine? Pick Stim-Free.
On the other hand, are you looking for something to melt away fat and provide energy at the same time? In that case, you’re probably better off with Stimulant. Both Fat Burners cost the exact same, so no pressure. Simply choose which burner you believe is best suited for you.
Final thoughts on PhysiqueSeries Fat Burners
At the end of the day, both Fat Burners are equally as good at what they do. The only differences are a few ingredients, whether or not they’re stimulative, and the way the ingredients work with each other to accomplish the same goal: Burning Fat.
That said, if you’re looking for a high-quality fat burner we’d definitely say try giving TL PhysiqueSeries a shot all day long. To recap, both burners are clinically dosed, have no banned ingredients and are effective.
