Boombod Reviews UK – What does it do?
This is our Boombod review, a fat burner in the UK which has appeared in several newspaper such as The Sun, Daily Mail, and various other news websites.
However, this review does not look at the reviews, it looks at the facts. We investigate the claims made about Boombod and see how well it reviews.
It’s thought to help reduce your appetite, boost your energy and burn more fat throughout the day and overnight.
You’ll learn more about the ingredients, potential side effects and any areas where it could be improved.
Here’s everything you need to know:
Table of Contents
They’re okay, but there’s a lot of room for improvement. The main addition here is definitely the appetite suppressant Glucomannan. Glucomannan is good, but is it enough to carry this whole supplement?
We’re not so sure. There are some other ingredients in here that can help, but it seems mainly like the Glucomannan delivers the most impact.
Now for the Boombod ingredients…
We’ve done things a little differently from our usual with this Boombod review. This is due to Boombod being broken up into 3 different servings: Morning, Afternoon and Night. All to be taken at the respective time of their namesake with water.
Below, you’ll see on the main ingredients in Boombod, then we’ll tell you which sachets it appears in.
Let’s take a look:
This is the main ingredient in Boombod and is found in all three sachets: Morning, Afternoon and Night.
The main reason for this is that it is an effective appetite suppressant. Coming from the Konjac root, Glucomannan helps by swelling in your stomach which can help you to feel fuller for longer.
This can help suppress your appetite and reduce your overall caloric intake throughout the day.
Glucomannan can also help by reducing your cholesterol which can help overall health.
This is only in the Morning sachets, however, it can still help in Boombod.
Supplementing Magnesium can help with several aspects of health. The more direct effects it has are on blood pressure and insulin sensitivity.
This can help improve blood flow along with helping to some degree to reduce fat storage. When your insulin levels are higher, it’s easier for your body to store fat. By helping the sensitivity you can reduce that problem.
- Vitamin C
This addition to Boombod isn’t anything special. Vitamin C is in both the Morning and Afternoon blends of this supplement.
It doesn’t help directly with fat loss in any capacity, it helps more with general health.
The main way that Vitmain C can help you in this supplement is by helping your immune system and general health. Aside from that background work nothing waist slimming is really in action here.
Again this is more of a general health benefit in Boombod and is found in all the sachets of this supplement.
It has been seen in some cases to help reduce illness, and shines the most when it comes to improving testosterone levels.
However, that isn’t what we’re looking for here.
- Vitamin Bs
There are numerous Vitamin Bs in Boombod, however, they all largely do the same thing: they promote energy and metabolism.
This goes especially for the main Vitmain B, B12. Supplementing these will have some minor effects on your metabolism which can help you burn calories at a slightly faster rate.
Various Vitamin Bs are in Morning, Afternoon and Night Boombod sachets.
A mineral that is only in the Morning and Afternoon Sachets of Boombod. It’s a good addition though, and should come in handy here.
What does Chromium do?
Chromium can help to regulate your blood sugar. As we’ve mentioned, this can help with controlling your insulin levels, which can help to reduce your overall fat storage.
It’s a good addition in here, and we’re happy to see it. We see the logic in only putting it in the Morning / Afternoon slots, it’s the time that you’ll be eating the most food.
- Vitamin D3
This doesn’t help fat loss, but it can help with general health in Boombod.
Vitamin D3 is a great choice as it is technically a hormone – and most people are deficient in it. It can help with several aspects of health including immunity, bone density, hormonal regulation and more.
It’s an essential nutrient so helping towards improving your levels to a more optimum amount, which can only be a good thing.
Boombod Ingredients in Review
As you can see, the Glucomannan really takes the reins in Boombod – across all three versions.
This shows that it should work well as an appetite suppressant but not much else.
In our opinion, we feel that more ingredients aimed at targeting fat burning would help a lot here.
The main things we think would carry the most benefit are:
Green Tea – Contains antioxidants (catechins) that help promote your levels of the fat burning hormone norepinephrine.
Green Coffee Bean – Contains chlorogenic acid which reduces your stored glucose energy, in doing so your body burns more fat to make up the difference.
Cayenne Pepper – A hot chili that boosts your body temperature which causes a cooldown which burns more calories and fat.
These would help a lot.
Is Boombod Safe?
We have seen several reports of supplement Glucomannan in powder form – not capsule form – causing issues in users. It has a risk of causing gastrointestinal blockages.
The reason is down to not enough water being used to supplement Boombod. It’s a powder, not a capsule, so it’s easier for the glucomannan to gum up in the water before being consumed. This gummy form can cause blockages, and potentially even cause choking by it swelling in the mouth and throat.
For this reason, we whole-heartedly express that you take plenty of water with this supplement if you’re planning on using it – or at least consider an alternative to Boombod which comes in capsule form that still has high levels of Glucomannan.
If you have any concerns about this, we suggest that you speak to your doctor or a health specialist before using it.
How to Use Boombod
Take 3 servings a day. The ‘Morning’ sachet in the morning, ‘Afternoon’ in the afternoon and ‘Night’ in the evening.
You want to dissolve each sachet of Boombod in a glass of water before drinking it.
Where to Buy Boombod
To our knowledge, the best place you can buy Boombod is directly from their official website. You can also get it on several other online stores such as Ebay, Amazon and Holland and Barrett.
As you can see, a lot of the marketing hype does not scale up to the actual effects of Boombod.
The main thing to note is that it does not actually burn fat – it suppresses your appetite to help keep you on your diet to burn more fat.
Nothing directly in this supplement does this. Also the powder aspect is a choking hazard, and potentially an intestinal block risk too.
There are much safer options out there – and it’s clear that if you’re looking for an appetite suppressant with high fiber you need to seek capsule supplements, rather than powdered.
