Since the recent acquisition by Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals, iForce Nutrition has been on a rampage with their supplement line. Within the past few months, iForce has released an all-day gains formula, Finish Line, and brought back a limited run of Dexaprine Original!
If you like powdered thermogenics… and you like it strong, you’ll want to keep reading.
Reason being, iForce has improved another incredibly popular fat burner in their long line of products. The original Thermoxyn was a capsule-based fat burner, but not only has the brand switched to a powder-based option, they’ve also completely reworked the ingredients in their new Thermoxyn powder as well!
Check out the all-new label below after you sign up for PricePlow alerts — you’ll know the powder because it will be listed as servings (not capsules).
And if the powder isn’t yet in stock, you’ll get notified when it is:

The stim heads out there should LOVE this. Stim sensitive folks will get a lot of bang for their buck! –iForce Vaughn
Fans of the original Thermoxyn will notice a much slimmer profile for the new edition that’s popping up, and while it’s still unfortunately a proprietary blend, iForce has disclosed a few key ingredients so that we know how to dose it!
Gone are the Dr. Oz herbal ingredients like raspberry ketones, green coffee bean, and garcinia cambogia. They’ve since been replaced with a “HUGE dose green tea extract to provide same if not better fat loss effect,” according to iForce’s FB page.
Let’s see what else Thermoxyn is packing to blast fat:
Caffeine Anhydrous (300mg)
All great fat burners start off with a solid hit of the energy-boosting methylxanthine, caffeine. Too much and you’re bouncing off the walls and jittery. Too little, and you might as well not even bother using it.
There is a “the sweet spot” for caffeine that is perfect for improving not only fat loss, but focus, energy, and performance as well.[1,2,3,4]
Although the label is proprietary, Vaughn at iForce responded to our inquiry and said that each serving of the new Thermoxyn will include 300mg of caffeine per scoop. This is definitely on the higher end of the caffeine spectrum for some, so be advised to start with 1/2 scoop if you are stim-sensitive.
Theacrine is another xanthine-type molecule that’s chemically similar to caffeine. It should come as no surprise that it also exerts similar effects to caffeine. The difference between the two is that theacrine doesn’t have a tolerance build up like caffeine dose.
What this means is that you can keep a lower dose and still see the same energy boosting effects without having to continually up the dose. Additional benefits derived from theacrine supplementation include: increasing dopamine levels in the brain, and reducing oxidative stress in the body.
This was the hot ingredient in 2015, and that trend seems to be continuing into 2016. Thanks again to Vaughn for disclosing the dose!
Synephrine HCl (60mg)
Since ephedrine has been banned for use in dietary supplements, companies searched for the next “it” ingredient to really amp up the fat burning capacity of their products. Synephrine was the answer and has since been proven to be a safe, effective alternative to ephedrine.
It’s extracted from Citrus Aurantium, a.k.a. Bitter Orange, a plant known to contains several of bioactive alkaloids frequently used in fat burners and pre workouts. It functions as a strong beta receptor agonist in the body,[9,10] that stimulates lipolysis, which enables you to essentially “burn fat for fuel”
Furthermore, synephrine increases metabolic rate without spiking your heart rate or blood pressure.
Keep in mind that this boost in metabolism takes places without any sort of exercise! So you can basically lounge around all day on the sofa and keep burning fat!
To follow with the trend of Thermoxyn Powder, 60mg is a relatively aggressive dose here, especially given the following ingredient. Usually we see 25-50mg of this lately… not with iForce!
Higenamine, a.k.a. Norcoclaurine, is another beta adrenergic like our previous ingredient. It increases production of noradrenaline, which ignites a chain reaction in the body that triggers the “fight or flight” response.
From here, the body mobilizes stored fats for use as energy rather than using up your glycogen stores. You’ll also notice better focus and greater concentration during the day.
What’s interesting here is that many fat burners usually choose synephrine OR higenamine, since they work in a similar capacity. Leave it to iForce to get a bit more aggressive.
Lemon Verbena Extract (10% Verbascosides)
Lemon Verbena is a plant typically used in skin creams and as a herbal, antioxidant-rich tea. However, A recent study on Lemon Verbena found that it decreases lipogenesis, enhances fatty acid oxidation and activates AMPK, a potent energy sensor in the body.
Other research indicates the Lemon Verbena can lower levels of oxidative stress markers.
The trick to lemon verbena’s effectiveness is the verbascoside, an ester found in Lemon Verbena and several other plants. Thermoxyn’s particular extract is standardized for 10% verbascoside.
New ingredient alert – try it first here!
Lemon Verbena is a new ingredient to fat burners, and it was first in Thermoxyn. We’ve also hinted at it in an article about a trademarked ingredient named MetabolAid.
Thermoxyn Powder here is not using that trademarked ingredient – it’s using straight 10% lemon verbena extract – but the point is that you’re going to be seeing this ingredient more often. Thermoxyn (and now Thermoxyn Powder) is your first chance to see and feel its effects!
Green Tea Extract
Green tea contains a number of catechins, with EGCG being the most well-known and intensively studied. Green tea extract is included in Thermoxyn due to EGCG’s role in enhancing the body’s natural lipolytic mechanisms.[15,16]
EGCG also is beneficial as a carb-blocker in the body due to its interactions on various digestive enzymes in the body.[17,18]
A high dose – but how high?
Remember, iForce has stated that this is a very high dose of green tea extract. Studies have shown that high doses are definitely tolerable,[19,20,21,22] so why not give it a shot?
The all new Thermoxyn will come in 2 flavors: Very Cherry Lime and Rainbow Sherbet. Assuming these flavoring is similar to Max Out or Hemavo2 Max, fans will be licking the shaker cup to get every last bit of tangy delicious flavor.
All the high stims in this product will definitely be tough to flavor, so let’s see if the Rainbow Sherbet can take them on down.
Now is the time of year when everyone is heading back to the gym after a long lay off. What better way to jumpstart your weight loss efforts than with a potent thermogenic fat burner. According to Vaughn from iForce, “The stim heads out there should LOVE this. Stim sensitive folks will get a lot of bang for their buck!”
Sounds like many of you will want to test the waters at half of a scoop to get started!
We can’t wait to see what else iForce Nutrition has in store for the upcoming year as the partnership with Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals has gotten off to a banging start!
