Intro: What does this supplement do?
This is our KETO BURNER review, which is a fat burner from AddNatural. It has claims to promote:
- Fat Loss
- Appetite Suppression
But how well does it work for you?
We’ll be looking closer at the ingredients in here along with our summary and suggestions on how it could be improved.
This is what we’ve found:
The Ingredients: What is in KETO BURNER?
There’s only a handful of ingredients, with the majority being good – however, it’s all in a proprietary blend.
A proprietary blend is not a good sign. This is when a supplement manufacturer chooses to hide the individual dosages of the ingredients in their product.
This means you don’t know how much of each ingredient you’re getting or how effective it is overall. Not only that it also raises your chances of being cheated out of a fair dosage.
Below, we’re looking at the ingredients in this fat burner, along with our summary and suggestions on how it could be improved. This is what you need to know:
This is not a great start to KETO BURNER. Raspberry Ketone just isn’t an effective nutrient when it comes to fat loss.
Despite the aggressive marketing that this nutrient gets from the supplement industry, the studies tell another story.
The only time this ingredient has been seen to provide benefits for fat loss or weight loss is in rat studies. Unfortunately these benefits don’t scale up to humans, you’d need to be taking several grams a day to get the same dosages.
However, even if you were this still doesn’t ensure that it will work for you. There are still no human studies out there showing Raspberry Ketones helps with fat or weight loss when supplemented in isolation.
You’re unlikely to get any benefits from taking it in this diet pill.
Green Coffee Bean
This is a much better option in this supplement from AddNatural.
Green Coffee Bean contains chlorogenic acid which is great for fat loss. How? Because after you consume it, the chlorogenic acid reduces the glucose in your liver that your body uses for energy.
This is important because your body uses this glucose for energy. Without it, it encourages your body to use other resources in your system for energy – your stored fat.
Supplementing Green Coffee Bean makes it easier for your body to burn fat with little extra effort.
This however, is not an effective ingredient in AddNatural KETO BURNER.
Garcinia Cambogia is this fat burner’s appetite suppressant, and it’s not a great one.
Why? Because studies show the only time this nutrient has helped promote appetite suppression is when it is used as a food seasoning. It improves the flavor of a meal which makes you feel satisfied for longer, reducing further cravings.
However, as a supplement you’re not tasting the Garcinia, so the results are not the same. A better option here would be a fibrous complex that you don’t need to taste to suppress your appetite. We’ll talk more about them and how they can help you later.
Not an appetite suppressant, but it can help with your metabolism and energy levels.
You already know what Caffeine does, it’s the most popular natural stimulant in the world. It can help you in KETO BURNER by increasing your energy levels, metabolism, focus and even power output.
This makes it a great choice if you’re working out while using this fat burner, but also a bad choice if you’re about to go to bed.
Just make sure you’re using it a good few hours before you need to sleep.
This is a great option in AddNatural KETO BURNER, and we’re glad to see it in here.
Green Tea, in our opinion, is the best natural fat burner on the market. It just has so many benefits.
So, what can it do?
It contains a specific type of antioxidant known as catechins. These catechins promote your body’s levels of the fat burning hormone norepinephrine. The more norepinephrine you have in your system, the more fat your body burns throughout the day.
Not only that, it has some caffeine in there to help with your energy levels, and also the amino acid L-Theanine to boost your overall focus.
It’s a great addition to any supplement.
Nutrient Profile Overview:
There are some good ingredients in this supplement from AddNatural, but there are a few things that we need to address.
Our first issue is the proprietary blend. You can’t know how effective a fat burner really is if you don’t know how much of each ingredient you’re getting.
The next problem is weaker ingredients. Raspberry Ketone and Garcinia Cambogia are both options that don’t have the studies to support their benefits as a supplement. You’re unlikely to get much benefit from them.
That said, the Green Tea, Green Coffee Bean and Caffeine are great in here. It would just be better if we knew their dosages.
How could the ingredients in KETO BURNER be better?
- Revealing the dosages
- Removing Raspberry Ketones and Garcinia Cambogia
- Some more study supported ingredients
The main ingredients that we think could help here are Glucomannan and Cayenne Pepper. They would be great replacements for the Garcinia Cambogia and Raspberry Ketones.
Glucomannan is a more effective appetite suppressant. It is a fibrous complex that swells in your stomach after you consume it. By swelling up, it leaves less room in your stomach making you feel fuller than you actually are. This allows you resist cravings and be more faithful to your diet.
Cayenne Pepper would be a good option too. It’s a thermogenic that can help heat up your body’s core temperature. The advantage of this is that your body has to start a cool down process to bring you back down to your normal levels. In doing so, your body uses more energy which burns more calories and fat.
It would be great to see more ingredients like this in this supplement.
Safety Check: Are there any side effects?
Although it is a proprietary blend, and that is concerning, we don’t think this supplement will cause you any side effects.
All of the ingredients in here are completely natural and don’t have a history of causing problems. You shouldn’t run into any problems while taking KETO BURNER.
That said, everyone is different and has different reactions. If you have any concerns or any pre-existing medical conditions, you should speak to your doctor before using this supplement.
Directions: How are the servings?
There’s two servings a day, so it could be better.
Typically a serving only lasts for a few hours. This means with two servings you’re unlikely to be getting enough coverage to keep your body in fat burning mode for the full day.
Ideally, what you need is a fat burner that has 3 – 4 servings a day. This gives your body a constant supply of the nutrients it needs to keep you in fat burning mode for as long as possible.
It would be better if this supplment from AddNatural was set up to work like this.
Is this the best fat burner?
No. There’s better:
We review an endless amount of fat burners every month searching for the most effective one on the market.
We look for supplements that deliver:
- Rapid Fat Loss
- 100% Natural Ingredients
- Powerful Appetite Suppression
- Effective Energy Boosts

Review Summary: KETO BURNER – Is it effective?
There are definitely some good points to using this supplement, but we have to say it isn’t the best option out there on the market.
Here’s a brief summary of our concerns with KETO BURNER from AddNatural:
- Proprietary Blend – You don’t know how much of each ingredient you’re getting or how effective it is overall.
- Some Ineffective Ingredients – Raspberry Ketones and Garcinia Cambogia aren’t great in diet pills.
- Missing Core Nutrients – Cayenne Pepper and Glucomannan would both work better in here.
As you can see, this isn’t the best option that we would recommend adding to your stack, however there are definitely some good ingredients in here.
