Arnold Iron Cuts Review – Fat Burning Supplement

IRON CUTS AUSTRALIAArnold Iron Cuts is a fat burning supplement manufactured by the American company MusclePharm. The company has an outstanding reputation for producing quality products and Arnold Iron Cuts is particularly noteworthy product because it is part of their “Arnold Series” range—produced in collaboration with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Arnold Iron Cuts is produced in capsule form and a variety of pack sizes are available (30 servings, 40, servings, and a 7-day trail pack).

The formulation contains three proprietary blends, each of which has been formulated to work in a specific way. The Thermogenic & Fat Metabolizer Matrix contains the main fat burning ingredients.

The Muscle Building Maximizer blend is designed to work as a “sculpting agent” and provide hard, well-defined muscles. The Estrogen & Cortisol Metabolizer blend has the important task of preventing elevated estrogen and cortisol hormones from preventing the other two blends from fulfilling their purpose.

Key Ingredients

Three capsules provide:

  • Vitamin D (400 IU)
  • Chromium (50 mcg)
  • Thermogenic & Fat Metabolizer (50 mcg): L-Carnitine Tartrate, Green Tea (Camellia Sinensis) Leaf Extract, Caffeine Anhydrous, Panax Ginseng Root Powder, N-Acetyl-L-tyrosine, Thermodiamine™ (98% Evodiamine), Vinpocetine, Inositol
  • Muscle Building Maximizer (900mg):  Maca 4:1 (Lepidium meyenii) Root Extract, AminoShield® Eriobotrya japonica Leaf Extract Proprietary Blend of 20% Pentacyclic Triterpenoids, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Boron Citrate, Fenugreek (Trigonella Foenum Graecum) Seed Extract 50% Saponins, Pumpkin Seed (Cucurbita Moschata Poiret) Extract
  • Estrogen & Cortisol Metabolizer (383mg):  Gymnema Sylvestre Leaf Extract, Grape (Vitis vinifera) Seed Extract, Diindolylmethane DIM), Cinnamon (Cinnamomum cassia) Bark powder, Banaba (Lagerstroemia speciosa) Leaf Extract

Blend Potential

Chromium and vitamin D are both considered to be fat burners. Vitamin D has shown some promise in recent studies, but chromium success as a fat burner is limited to tests conducted on rodents during the 1950s. More recent tests have shown it to be ineffective.

As for the three main blends, they look quite promising on paper, but the lack of information about the inclusion rates of individual blend constituents makes it impossible to predict how well the overall formulation will work.

Thermogenic & Fat Metabolizer Matrix

The main fat burning potential probably comes courtesy of evodiamine, L-Carnitine (an amino acid), green tea and inositol. All of them have merit, and caffeine also possesses a limited fat burning potential. The potential of the other ingredients is harder to define, but panax ginseng offers many health benefits and could also be useful for reducing fatigue.

Muscle Building Maximizer

Sufficient testosterone levels are of key importance to muscle growth, and Boron, fenugreek, maca, and pumpkin seed extract are all believed to be testosterone boosting ingredients. Eriobotrya Japonica is believed to reduce the breakdown of muscle protein so its inclusion here offers obvious benefits.

Estrogen & Cortisol Metabolizer

Grape seed extract is believed to be an aromatase inhibitor with the power to decrease estrogen levels. DIM is believed to possess similar capabilities. It is feasible that the other ingredients will be of benefit in an indirect way. Many of them can lower blood sugar levels, which, as a repercussion, should then reduce cortisol levels.

Customer Opinion

A few average comments read:

“I tried this product because I wanted to find something cheaper than the expensive Animal products. Based on the reviews I decided to give it a try. I must say I am impressed with this and am a fan. I have noticed the dry cuts and the fat burning (especially around the belly). I workout regularly so my results started to show after about 2 weeks. I am more cut and my muscles are more defined than before.”

“My belly got smaller but I didn’t lose any pounds just shed some unwanted belly fat. It didn’t hurt my stomach and was very easy to take

This made my muscles feel harder and tighter, I definitely noticed results from taking this. I would say I cut about 5-6% body fat and clearly noticed more definition and vascularity.”

“Did nothing for me but It did give me a boost of energy not bad on the heart but I expect more of the fat burning witch did not happen so this my first ever supplement which I given a one star maybe my body is different” 

How to Take Arnold Iron Cuts
