Ghost Burn: Weight Loss Energy Drink that Melts Away Fat!

The legends behind the best minds of YouTube Fitness re-launched heir powdered fat-burning drink aptly named Burn. Does it live up to the PricePlow standard?

Ghost Burn – Ghost Lifestyle ventures back into the fat-burning market!

Dedicated citizens of PricePlow Nation are undoubtedly familiar with Ghost — as they sponsor many of the top fitness YouTube personalities ranging from Christian Guzman to Maxx Chewning. Their products are well developed and generous in terms of clinical doses, and done in a unique fashion amongst companies with aggressive marketing strategies. When we get our hands on a Ghost product, we expect excellence.

Ghost Burn Action

Ghost is venturing into the fat-burning world with Burn!

A powdered fat burning drink.. with some sour and some spice!

Ghost Burn is a powdered fat burner built to help amplify the results for individuals with dialed-in weight-loss routines. While gym-goers may think of fat burners as a capsule-dominated industry, powdered products are often a better option due to their inherent customization. Consumers can decide how much of the product they should take – this can be advantageous for those that have low stimulant tolerances and would like to limit the amount of stimulants they’re taking at one time. Lifters that have more stimulant tolerance can taper their dosages up, allowing for intensified fat burning when they adapt to the recommended serving size.

Powders also allow for greater serving sizes and higher doses of products that demand more label real estate. Thus, fat burning drink powders have become increasingly commonplace in 2019, and Ghost is clearly supporting that trend. Let’s dive into the label to see if Burn lives up to its competition.

Before we get into this loaded and intense formula, make sure you’re subscribed to PricePlow’s Ghost news updates and alerts for any supplement deals, news, and reviews you’re interested in, especially those related to Ghost products!

As our long-time readers know, PricePlow has a love-hate dynamic with fat burners. Fat burners won’t burn fat independent of effort and are not a magic bullet for dieting. We hate when companies take advantage of consumers by potentiating that idea. However, we love when companies look out for the educated gym-goer that is looking to get everything out of their diet and exercise program, because these ingredients do help and do have research backing them.

The Ingredients

We’re about to break down everything going on inside Burn. If you’re in the mood for watching a video review of the label instead, don’t worry – Mike and Ben got you covered! We were lucky enough to get our hands on Burn shortly after its release, and spoiler alert – it lives up to the hype!

While the opportunity to assess your tolerances through different doses is present here, and the label lists the individual yields in both 1-scoop and 2-scoop servings, we’re going to assume a full 2-scoop serving for our analysis. Here’s what each 2-scoop, 14.5g dose delivers:

  • L-Carnitine Tartrate – 1.5g

    Ghost Burn Ingredients

    Ghost Burn comes in heavy with carnitine, but the fun doesn’t stop there – this entire label is loaded!

    Burn delivers two distinct forms of carnitine. L-carnitine L-tartrate (LCLT) is the carnitine athletes want for performance improvements. Research suggests that LCLT may enhance muscle building while also reducing muscle soreness after exercise.[1,2] A study from 2002 tested the effects of carnitine on resistance-trained men, with those conducting the experiment specifically interested in potential changes in signals of muscle soreness. After 3 weeks of supplementation, they found that LCLT decreased muscle tissue disruption by 43%,[1] thus concluding that LCLT treatment can significantly enhance recovery. Burning fat is highly dependent on how intense your training sessions are, and when you can recover better and faster, you can keep your daily expenditure elevated!

    Fresher muscles, hotter burn!

    Beyond its ergogenic qualities, carnitine is an essential player in fat metabolism. By providing more carnitine, LCLT supplementation may help you lose body fat.[3,4] Researchers have identified the mechanisms that allow carnitine to help burn fat, and it goes far beyond muscle recovery. Carnitine can increase fatty-acid oxidation,[3] meaning it helps free up long-chained fatty acids within the body for energy use. In other words, LCLT slightly alters the metabolism’s main fuel source, shifting from incoming calories to stored energy, otherwise known as body fat!

    The one downside to LCLT is that it does not cross the blood-brain barrier, so it loses out on the nootropic benefits that other forms of carnitine supplementation offer. However, Ghost has accounted for that, delivering another, slightly different form of carnitine in Burn!

  • Acetyl-L-Carnitine HCl – 1.5g

    L-Carnitine L-Tartrate

    LCLT is the form of L-Carnitine that you want if the main focus is burning fat!

    While LCLT cannot cross the blood-brain barrier, acetyl l-carnitine (ALCAR) can. In providing two forms of carnitine, Ghost bypasses the downsides of ALCAR and LCLT, while heightening their upsides. LCLT delivers the performance punch in Burn while ALCAR provides the nootropic uppercut. Acetyl groups are lipid-soluble, allowing for the carnitine it is complexed with to get into the brain. ALCAR in high doses may increase focus and memory recall while also protecting the brain from oxidative damage.[5,6,7] In fact, research has shown that ALCAR acts as a precursor to acetylcholine once it surpasses the blood-brain barrier.[5] Acetylcholine, as we’ll get into shortly, is crucial for overall cognitive strength. This can leave your mind more focused, making it easier to keep your fat-burning goals a priority!

    Thankfully, Ghost went with a massive 3g serving size of total carnitine here. This ensures you’ll receive both the mental and physical benefits. That being said, iIf you decide to stick to the lower end of the serving recommendation, 1.5g is still more than enough to help out your diet.

  • Choline Bitartrate – 1g

    Choline is an ingredient that we at PricePlow feel is underappreciated. Choline is a building block of acetylcholine, dubbed “the learning neurotransmitter” due to its involvement in muscle contraction and memory formation. Supplementing with choline appears to increase the amount of acetylcholine present in the body,[8,9] which can in turn improve focus and muscle force in athletes. Essentially, choline helps create the chemicals the brain needs to function properly. Combining this ingredient with the blood-brain barrier-crossing ALCAR, Burn delivers a nootropic effect quite unique to fat burners.

    However, bitartrate is a cheaper form of choline and is less bioavailable than its brethren like Alpha-GPC. While we wish Burn capped out at 2g as the highest label dose – 1g is still enough to give most an acetylcholine boost!

  • KSM-66 Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) Root Extract – 600mg

    Let’s be honest – dieting isn’t easy. It can be extremely difficult on our bodies, as well as our mind. In fact, dieting can really elevate stress levels through cortisol production. This hormone is the enemy when it comes to weight loss – stress-induced eating can destroy even the most disciplined of dieters!

    Ashwagandha Cortisol Study

    With less stress and a healthier mentality, you’re more likely to stay on track with your diet![10]

    Thankfully, Burn includes PricePlow’s favorite stress-crushing plant extract. Ashwagandha appears to reduce stress via modulation of the stress hormone cortisol. Cortisol levels tend to rise as caloric intake falls. Since ashwagandha appears to reduce serum cortisol levels, it is a good option for those that experience more stress on a diet.[10,11] Research from 2012 found that subjects supplementing with ashwagandha for 60 days improved scores on depression-anxiety tests by 71.6%, compared to only a 5% improvement found in placebo.[10] Keeping cortisol levels, and thus stress, minimized is extremely advantageous in a weight-loss journey. It can be the difference between sticking to your diet or falling off the rails!

    Affects another hormone, too…

    KSM-66

    KSM-66 bills itself as the World’ Best Ashwagandha… and we don’t disagree!

    There is also preliminary research suggesting that ashwagandha may keep testosterone levels regular in men.[12] In 2010, 75 infertile men with faltering hormone levels were administered ashwagandha. The root induced significantly higher serum testosterone and luteinizing hormone (LH) levels, while also decreasing markers of poor testosterone levels.[12] This is relevant in terms of dieting, as well – restricted caloric intake can severely affect testosterone levels. Keeping all of your hormones in check throughout this process is crucial, and luckily, Ghost realizes that!

    We also love Ghost’s decision to utilize KSM-66. While ashwagandha itself is already the gold standard of mood-enhancing ingredients, the KSM-66 extract is the gold standard of the gold standard.The 600mg dose of ashwagandha in Burn matches the common clinical dose. The decision to use a top-quality ingredient at its proven dose should come as no surprise – this is Ghost we’re talking about, after all!

  • L-Tyrosine – 500mg

    We’ve already touched on one nootropic ingredient, but Burn doesn’t stop there! Tyrosine is the building block of the catecholamines – dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine.[13] These brain-based chemicals are sometimes referred to as the “feel-good” neurotransmitters, and are responsible for controlling the “fight-or-flight” systems within the body. Supplementing with tyrosine encourages the body to produce more catecholamines, which may improve focus and general motivation.

    Tyrosine Plasma Elevations

    Tyrosine has a powerful effect on your neurotransmitters![32]

    Despite working mostly through sympathetic mechanisms, tyrosine supplementation appears to mitigate stress.[14] In a meta-analysis from 2015, 14 different studies testing tyrosine and its possible stress-relieving abilities were assessed. Each study looked at showed a positive effect in terms of alleviating cognitive stress,[14] likely through the compound’s catecholamine-inducing behavior.500mg is right around where we start to “feel” L-tyrosine. This euphoric experience can help maintain your mood during your weight-loss journey – nobody wants to be around a cranky dieter!
  • Caffeine Anhydrous – 300mg

    Ghost does caffeine right with Burn. While this feels like a strange statement, it is exactly how we felt when we saw the label. The two-scoop serving delivers a whopping 300mg of caffeine – equivalent to what you’d find in modern pre-workouts. Caffeine, simply put, is here to wake you up.[15] It will also help you keep the weights heavy in the gym and your feet fast on the treadmill – allowing you to hold onto more muscle as the fat falls off.[16,17]

    Ghost Burn Family

    Burn packs a serious dose of caffeine. If you’re a bit stimulant-sensitive you adjust accordingly!

    This stimulant actually packs a potent thermogenic punch. Research from 1990 tested multiple caffeine doses (100mg, 200mg, 300mg, and 400mg) in healthy test subjects. They found that caffeine can significantly increase caloric expenditure via triglyceride oxidation.[17] In addition, it seemed to do so in a dose-dependent manner, meaning a higher dose of caffeine, such as the 300mg we have here, is more effective in enhancing your metabolism.

    That being said, 300mg is not for everyone. It’s a pretty serious energy-boosting hit, and some may find that it’s simply too much for them. That’s ok – because Burn is a powder, you’re free to experiment a bit and find the dose that works for you. If not the full 2-scoop serving, maybe it’s a scoop, or perhaps 1.5 scoops is your sweet spot. Regardless, you’ll benefit greatly from the cognitive-boosting, fat-burning jolt Burn will deliver!

  • Cocoa Bean (Theobroma cacao) Seed extract (20% Theobromine) – 20mg

    While we associate cocoa beans with chocolate, these seeds also contain theobromine. Theobromine can be thought of caffeine’s weaker cousin – it’s a stimulant that provides an experience that feels damn good.[18] That being said, it actually functions better as a weight-loss agent!

    Blunts appetite

    A review from 2014 identified a key effect of theobromine. Oddly enough, doing so was not the main focus of the study. Initially, these scientists were concerned with identifying undisclosed ingredients in different supplements, but after some interesting findings, decided to dive a bit deeper.

    Upon further inspection, these researchers found that theobromine reduces feelings of hunger.[19] When consuming a calorie-restricted diet, hunger can be problematic for staying on-track. Being able to feel less hungry can make it significantly easier to stick to a diet!

    Helps target fatty acids

    Theobromine’s stimulant-based nature somewhat drives how the body processes it. In fact, it actually helps free up fatty acids for use, similar to other ingredients on this label!

    A study from 2006 found that theobromine can induce weight loss due to changes in lipid profile.[20] As with LCLT, this compound shifts the body’s attention a bit, encouraging the metabolism to burn stored body fat! When taking a fat burner, there really aren’t enough ways you can go about attacking body fat stores. Burn does so through multiple angles, making sure your fat-burning efforts are well-focused!

    Unfortunately, the dose here is much lower than other fat burners on the market. The clinical dose of theobromine is approximately 150mg, substantially higher than the 20mg in Burn. While we wish Ghost had sprinkled in more some more of this appetite-blunting stimulant, we’re happy to see it included nonetheless.

  • NeuroFactorTM Coffee (Coffea arabica) Fruit extract – 100mg

    BDNF Levels Graph

    Blood levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) are significantly elevated by whole coffee fruit extract!

    NeuroFactorTM is a trademarked coffee bean extract fromFutureCeuticals. It’s relatively new to the scene, but the early research involving NeuroFactorTM is extremely promising. Research suggests that NeuroFactorTM may acutely raise levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) by as much as 144%.[21,22] BDNF is a growth factor for neurons and may improve neurogenesis and brain cell repair. It’s also related to aging – increased BDNF may slow neuronal decay. In theory, more BDNF means better learning, moods, well-being, metabolism…it may just improve every aspect of life.[21,22,23] We aren’t 100% sold on NeuroFactorTM just yet – the research is new and we aren’t the guys that jump at the results of a few trials. It’s so new that a clinical dose hasn’t yet been identified. However, we typically see around NeuroFactorTM comes in around 100mg in products containing the brain-booster. Burn falls right in line with that common dose, so for the time being, we’ll suggest that’s fair!

  • Bitter Orange (Citrus aurantium) Fruit extract – 60mg

    Ghost Legend Christian Guzman

    Ghost loves their synephrine! Full article on Ghost Legend Christian Guzman on our blog!

    Synephrine is also known as bitter orange extract. Synephrine acts as a metabolic booster and stimulant through beta-receptor agonism – much like ephedrine.[24,25] Specifically, it acts as a beta-2 and beta-3 adrenergic receptor agonist, which helps free up fatty acids for use. Research also shows that it can increase metabolism and suppress appetite,[25] deeming it an all-encompassing fat-burning ingredient! However, you may question its use here, especially if you know anything about ephedrine. Ephedrine is actually a bit more powerful than synephrine, but lacks in a more crucial respect.

    Synephrine is a safer alternative

    Ephedrine may be more effective than synephrine, but the former has actually been under question in recent years. It’s even been banned in some countries, and is currently under review in the U.S. Thus, while it is weaker than ephedrine, synephrine is significantly safer.[26] Ghost prioritizes the safety of their customers, and using synephrine here speaks volumes to how much they care!

    Burn delivers a full 60mg of synephrine. That dose is right in line with what we’d expect in a fat-burning product, and we’re more than happy to have it!

  • Grains of Paradise (Aframomum melegueta) Seed extract (std. To 12% 6-paradol) – 40mg

    Grains of Paradise Energy Expenditure

    Energy expenditure change (ΔEE) after oral ingestion of Grains of Paradise. This spice helps melt away those stubborn pounds![28]

    Our fearless leader Mike Roberto is the patron saint of Grains of Paradise, so we always like seeing it included. Grains of Paradise helps the body burn through brown fat – a stubborn type of adipose tissue that mammals have for thermoregulation.[27,28] While brown fat was great when our ancestors got lost in the arctic Tundra – it’s not so great for maintaining a lean physique. This type of fat can be the most problematic when discussing body recomposition – it’s stubborn as hell! Grains of Paradise can help loosen it up – that may be an issue if you’re about to venture out into subzero temperatures, but it’s advantageous if you’re heading out to Single’s Night at your local bar, instead!Most studies out there tend to hover around a 10mg dose of Grains of Paradise. We have a massive 40mg here, and at 12% standardiztion, Burn packs quite a spicy punch with this ingredient!
  • BioPerineⓇ Black Pepper (Piper nigrum) extract – 10mg

    In taking this product, it’s imperative that the body is primed to fully absorb everything that’s being delivered to it. That’s easier said than done, especially when you consider the sheer size of this label, in addition to each ingredient’s individual dose!

    Here to ensure nothing slips through unnoticed, Ghost is using BioPerineⓇ, the most effective form of black pepper extract on the market! Research has shown that this ingredient can increase the bioavailability of supplemented ingredients, showcasing this ability in both fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins and minerals.[29,30] However, that’s not all this spice can do. Given its nature, it actually can increase overall caloric expenditure,[31] an effect especially relevant in a fat burner! Something that can not only help burn more calories on its own, but also amplify the fat-burning effects of other ingredients fits right at home on this label.

    The whopping 10mg dose is more than enough to help deliver these effects, as well. While it may fly under the radar a little, the importance of black pepper extract here cannot be exaggerated!

Flavors – a Ghost specialty!

Ghost Burn Container

Burn doesn’t forget about that signature Ghost quality – incredible taste!

Burn has a unique leg up on its competition through flavor. Utilizing previous partnerships Ghost has built and cultivated, Burn provides two flavors officially sponsored by WarheadsⓇ– sour green apple and sour watermelon. For those of you who aren’t fans of lip-puckering sour variations, Ghost includes a more refreshing mango option, too!

    Ghost is fulfilling their promise…

    At the beginning of 2019, the guys behind Ghost Lifestyle promised a huge year from their brand. We typically hear promises like this made across the industry – new products, new flavors, and new innovations are constantly being teased. Yet, it’s not too often a brand can fully live up to the lofty expectations they’ve set for themselves. However, when it comes to Ghost, they practically never fail to live up to the hype.

    Recipients of GNC’s 2019 Partner of the Year Award, these industry trailblazers have absolutely cleared the bar they’ve set for themselves. As far as products go, Ghost has expanded upon their already massive profile – we’ve gotten another iteration in the Guzman Legend pre-workout series, a revamped EAA formula in Amino V2, and Ghost Vegan, an incredible vegan protein powder.

    Ghost Whey Chips Ahoy!

    Cookies in a protein powder!? Say no more – we’re in! Setting new standards is simply what Ghost does!

    This being Ghost, simply releasing new products wasn’t enough. Ghost built a significant part of their reputation on their ridiculous ability to flavor their products – seriously, there may not be anyone better in the industry! They’ve introduced a creamy Coconut Ice Cream flavor to their best-selling Ghost Whey, as well as launching a partnership with Welch’s for grape-flavored products! Oh, and they’ve ventured into the inclusions game, as well – yeah, you can now get Chips Ahoy pieces in your protein powder! When it comes to meeting expectations, Ghost doesn’t just meet the bar…they obliterate it!

    Ghost Burn is the latest release to hit the scene and is perhaps their most innovative release in quite some time. Other product releases thus far have been variations of previous products, but Burn is in a world all by itself. This fat-scorching formula not only sits in its own category in Ghost’s profile, but finds itself in a world of its own when compared to other fat burners on the market, as well!

    Conclusion – Burn incinerates fat, and burns the competition!

    When discussing Ghost products, there’s often two takeaways we expect to have – the use of effective ingredients and an incredible taste. Sure, these are lofty expectations, but they’re the kind of expectations that come when a company has, time after time, raised the standard. Ghost has done just that, and when we heard their first fat-burning product, Burn, would hit the shelves, we assumed excellence was on the way.

    Ghost Burn Lineup

    When it comes to fat burners, you really can’t do much better than Burn – a great-tasting, effectively-dosed fat-burning powder!

    Simply put, Burn is a fat burner that literally checks off all of our boxes. The label is nearly entirely comprised of fat-burning, energizing workhorses – these are the type of ingredients that generally lead fat-burning formulas, and Burn utilizes all of them. For the individual that wants to buy a safe fat burner that works — Burn is a great option.

    Ghost tends to break new ground when it comes to their formulas. To be clear, they did not do that here – instead, Burn relies on what’s tried-and-true, the compounds that are trusted and proven. That being said, it’s been awhile since we’ve seen a fat burner that is this enjoyable to drink!

    Ghost has reached new, incredible heights in 2019. Burn is yet another win in a year seemingly full of them. Stay tuned, because these guys aren’t done yet – we’ll have much more coming from Ghost in the near future!
