BPI Burn XS – Stim-Free Focus Fat Burner


Burn XS is the newest one pill fat loss solution promising “mind bending clarity”.

While many companies hit the beaches and go into an “off” season once summer rolls around, the same can’t be said for BPI Sports!

They’ve been particularly busy this season with the recent release of Pump HD and Best Aminos.

They don’t seem to be slowing down either as the dog days of summer wear on. Recently announced is their latest fat burner, Burn XS. It’s promises “mind bending clarity”, yet is stimulant-free (in the sense that there’s no caffeine).

We have a sneak peek of the ingredients inside and will give you the full rundown, but first make sure to sign up for PricePlow alerts and get the best deal:

Burn XS Ingredients

Choline Molecule

Meet choline, the main focus booster in BPI’s latest fat burner.

The two biggest factors that BPI seems to be concentrating on with Burn XS is its heavy focus factor and the absence of the traditional stimulants found in other fat burners. If we know anything about BPI it’s the fact that they aren’t shy about exploring new territory and releasing unconventional formulas with their products.

The same holds true here, as you’ll see there are some interesting players included to help you shed the fat:

  • CDP-Choline

    Burn XS kicks off its list of ingredients with a heavy hitter in the focus department. CDP-Choline, or citicoline, is the most bioavailable, and expensive) form of choline supplementation on the market.[1]

    When taken orally, as in the case here, it easily crosses the blood brain barrier. It acts on the central nervous system (CNS) rather effectively causing the production of noradrenaline and dopamine. Additionally, it also improves memory and learning in individuals with age related cognitive decline.[2]

    This will be the primary component of the “mind bending clarity” that Burn XS promotes and it looks like BPI isn’t cutting corners by using cheaper forms of choline supplements.

    Choline for fat burning?!

    While choline supplements are best known for boosting memory and cognition, a recent study hints at the possibility of fat loss as well. When dosed at 2g, choline can boost fat burning potential without compromising strength levels.[14]

    Now, the dose used in that study was a whopping 2g! We don’t expect this much to be included in Burn XS, but having CDP-choline as part of the formula may help with fat loss overall.

  • Picamilon

    Continuing on with the focus-centric aspect of Burn, we have this combination of GABA and niacin. It’s classified as a nootropic compound by the U.S. National Library of Medicine that’s been shown to improve both learning and short term memory.[3,4] This may be due to the fact that picamilon improves blood flow to and from the brain.[5]

    Additionally, since picamilon is a derivative of GABA, it can reduce stress and improve focus, mood and cognition.[6]

  • Cocoa Seed Extract

    BPI seems to be a big fan of cocoa seed extract as they’ve recently used it in Pump HD. Cocoa extract contains xanthine molecules (theobromine and caffeine) which can increase blood flow and improve cognition.[7,8,9]

    It possesses a mild stimulatory effect in the body, similar to caffeine, but much smoother and longer-lasting.[10] Should you choose to stack this with a stimulant-based fat burner, cocoa seed extract will also help smooth out crashes typically seen with high doses of caffeine.

    However, “cocoa seed extract” can mean a lot of things, and it’d be great to know what BPI is really standardizing for here. For example, might it be epicatechin?

  • Lycoris Radiata

    Red Spider Lily

    Red Spider Lily is yet another ingredient that will boost focus in BPI’s newest fat burner.

    Also known as Red Spider Lily, this plant is a member of the Amaryllidaceae family and is traditionally found in China, Korea and Nepal. Interestingly enough, the bulbs of the plant are quite poisonous and used by homeowners to keep mice and other rodents away.

    That’s obviously not why it’s included in Burn XS though. Red Spider Lily is rich in a group of alkaloids that confer antioxidative effects in the body.[11] Additionally, these alkaloids also exhibit the ability to inhibit acetylcholinesterase (enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine, a potent neurotransmitter).[12] This will lead to improved cognition and focus with higher circulating levels of acetylcholine in the body.

  • Solanum Tuberosum

    This ingredient may sound rather strange, but no doubt they’ve formed one of the pillars of your diet since childhood, whether in the form of French fries or mashed taters. Yes, we’re referring to the common potato!

    While bashing on potatoes is en vogue with the mass media and carbo-phobes alike, some interesting research has surfaced on the use of potato extracts in regards to obesity. In animal trials, Irish potato extract has been shown to be effective for decreasing body weight and fat mass, and improving glucose control.[13]

    While this may not give you free reign to go on an all French fry diet, it does mean that you don’t have to run screaming in the other direction next time you have a craving for a baked potato – there is indeed something in there that may help with your diet. We just hope that BPI properly isolated it!


Each bottle of Burn XS contains 40 capsules, which hints to the possibility that this is a single-serving fat burner, similar to BPI’s Roxy. This means you’ll only have to pop 1 cap a day to experience the potential weight loss benefits and not have to worry about shoveling 3 or more pills as you see with other fat burners.

BPI Fat Burners in legion!

Many of BPI Sports’ fans may be a bit confused. After this is what we calculate to be BPI’s ninth fat burner!!! (Link will take you to our BPI Sports Fat Burners, and we’re probably missing one or two.) This feels like the market is getting a bit flooded with them, so that may leave you wondering which one to try.

The good news is that the value proposition of Burn XS is pretty simple: this is the one you want to try if you don’t want more stimulants, but do want more focus. Many will enjoy that. But what to stack it with from BPI… Roxy or RoxyLean or RX6 or whatnot… it’s a bit confusing and we really can’t give you a clear-cut guide on that. Thankfully, they have helpful reps in the forums and on social media that will be happy to help, so don’t feel ashamed to ask!!

At some point, we’ll have to nominate one of these for our popular Best Fat Burners buyer’s guide… and if this one’s dosed with enough choline, it might actually make the cut!

Wrap Up

Pile of Potatoes

Potatoes no longer need to be feared and some research has indicated extracts from the spuds may improve weight loss.

BPI serves up another unique combination of ingredients with its latest product. It’s refreshing to see companies experimenting with new ingredients and not rehashing the same old stuff with ridiculously high doses of caffeine and other green tea extracts like so many products continue to do.

Burn XS should be released anytime, and we’ll keep an eye out for user feedback and see what the masses have to say in regards to its effectiveness.
