Presentation and promises of Turbo Ripper by Scitec Nutrition
Turbo Ripper from Scitec Nutrition is a supplement that comes in the form of ultra-concentrated capsules.
Its objective: to promote optimal weight management and fat elimination, thanks to a powerful, fast and lasting fat-burning action.
According to the official website, Turbo Ripper from Scitec Nutrition has multiple advantages:
- Activates thermogenesis, to burn maximum calories and fat;
- Effectively helps in weight control;
- Increases fat burning;
- Reduces appetite.
Also on the official website, the recommended dose of Turbo Ripper is 4 capsules per day, to be taken in the morning on an empty stomach or 1 hour before training.
On other sites selling sports nutrition products, the recommended dosage is 1 capsule per day.
The high concentrations of active ingredients in Turbo Ripper from Scitec Nutrition are undoubtedly the reason for the different dosage recommendations.
We imagine that a particularly athletic person, during a dry period, can take 4 capsules before training or on an empty stomach.
A person on a slimming cure, and practicing a more moderate activity, can stay on one capsule a day, and observe the effects of Turbo Ripper from Scitec Nutrition before possibly increasing the dosages.

The ingredients of Turbo Ripper by Scitec Nutrition
Turbo Ripper is composed of very concentrated doses of 3 active agents: caffeine, acetyl L-carnitine and green tea.
We no longer present caffeine and its interest in weight loss.
This substance is also officially recognized as an adjuvant in weight loss diets, that is to say an ingredient capable of reinforcing the effects of weight loss.
Caffeine activates lipolysis in fat cells by inhibiting the enzyme cAMP phosphohodiesterase. Its action strongly limits the formation of fat cells, but also the storage of fat in the body. Caffeine is also known to significantly increase thermogenesis. The body will then expend more calories and melt the fat reserves.
2. L-Acetyl L-Carnitine:
Carnitine participates in the transport of fatty acids.
This process allows the production of energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The role of carnitine is therefore essential for the functioning of the muscles, to provide them with the fuel necessary for physical effort. Carnitine would also improve physical performance.
3. Green Tea:
Green tea is known for its slimming properties.
It contains has stimulating properties of lipolysis and thermogenesis. Thanks to its richness in catechin, it promotes the elevation of norepinephrine concentrations in the body. This hormone also participates in the elevation of energy expenditure and the oxidation of fats.
Other ingredients present in Turbo Ripper by Scitec Nutrition
This amino acid acts on weight loss, stress, reducing appetite and stress.
This ingredient is also very interesting because it avoids the fatigue felt when the stimulating effects of the product wear off. Tyrosine therefore avoids the bouts of fatigue associated with the practice of intense sports, but also sometimes present during strict hypocaloric diets.
5. Cayenne pepper:
Capsaicin, derived from cayenne pepper, stimulates metabolism and thermogenesis, and therefore increases fat burning.
Scientific studies concerning Turbo Ripper
No studies are available regarding the precise blend of ingredients found in Scitec Nutrition’s Turbo Ripper.
On the other hand, the active agents have, individually, been the subject of numerous clinical studies.
Let us quote a few:
Caffeine has been shown to promote weight loss via the process of activating thermogenesis and fat oxidation.
(Source : NCBI. Department of Human Biology, Maastricht University, The Netherlands. Westerterp-Plantenga MS., Lejeune MP., Kovacs EM. Obes Res. 2005 Jul;13(7):1195-204).
Green tea is known for its fat burning effects.
A review from the University of Maryland Medical Center shows that green tea improves weight loss and promotes healthy weight maintenance.
Carnitine has been the subject of preliminary studies evaluating its effects on improving physical performance. The results still deserve to be fleshed out with regard to the effect of this substance on the ability to increase physical effort.
On the other hand, it has been shown that carnitine reduces muscle stress after exercise, and therefore reduces fatigue and accelerates recovery.
