Omega Sports BURN 24 is marketed as a “physician recommended, clinical strength fat burner.”

With several ingredients designed to combat unhealthy blood glucose levels, BURN 24 is also described as a “reset button” that promotes insulin balance – without stimulants.

Omega Sports BURN 24 is intriguing with its original concept and uncommon ingredients. But, new doesn’t always mean better. . .

Under the Label

Omega Sports prides itself on innovative, high-quality ingredients. Here’s what I learned about the BURN 24 formula.

Green Coffee Bean Extract. Green coffee beans are proven fat burners. In clinical studies, green coffee bean reduces body fat, BMI, and overall body weight. [1]

WebMD experts suggest taking 80 – 200 mg green coffee bean extract daily to enhance weight loss. [2] Omega Sports BURN 24 contains 250 mg, so it is likely effective.

Chlorogenic Acid. Green coffee beans contain high chlorogenic acid levels. According to some doctors, chlorogenic acid promotes weight loss by “slowing down the absorption of glucose in the bloodstream.” [3]

Momordica Charantia Extract.Also known as bitter melon, momordica charantia improves insulin resistance and enhances weight loss. In one study, rats were fed a fructose-rich diet for eight weeks and then given this extract or a placebo. Those with bitter melon experienced improved insulin resistance. [4]

In another animal study, momordica charantia significantly lowered body weight. [5] More applicably, human studies show bitter melon increases lipolysis, or fat cell breakdown. [6]

Berberine Hydrochloride. This ammonium salt is used in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine as gastrointestinal support. It also reportedly regulates blood sugar levels. [7] However, clinical research is slim.

Gymnema Sylvestra. According to WebMD experts, gymnema sylvestre’s Hindi name translates to “destroyer of sugar.” So, it is no surprise gymnema sylvestre is used to combat diabetes and metabolic syndrome – two conditions worsened by blood sugar imbalances. WebMD also suggests it is an appetite suppressant and a diuretic. [8]

One study showed fasting people who took gymnema one hour before they were offered food ate less than those with a placebo. [9]

An animal study also showed gymnema’s weight loss effects. After two weeks with gymnema water extract, rats showed significant weight loss compared to the control group. [10]

Bergenin. According to one study, bergenin increases weight loss by inhibiting insulin-induced fat storage. [11]

Cissus Quadrangularis. Research shows cissus quadrangularis promotes weight loss and lower blood glucose levels. In one study, participants lost weight when they took cissus quadrangularis, regardless of dietary changes. [12]

Piper Nigrum Extract. Better known as black pepper, piper nigrum is a bioavailability enhancer, meaning it improves nutrient absorption and increases other ingredients’ effects. [13]

How to Use Omega Sports BURN 24

Take 2 capsules 3 times daily, just before each major meal. Each bottle contains 180 capsules and lasts 30 days when used as directed.

The caffeine content in Omega Sports BURN 24 is low enough that it should not impact sleep when taken before dinner. This may not be true for all users, however – particularly those who are caffeine sensitive.

About the Manufacturer

Omega Sports is a supplement company with the highest Better Business Bureau rating: A+ on a scale of A+ to F. Omega Sports is not BBB accredited but has received this rating due these factors:

• How long they have been in business
• They have responded to all (2) BBB customer complaints
• They are transparent in their background and contact information

Omega Sports was founded in 2003 and is supposedly more focused on quality than becoming the biggest company in the business.

Company Reputation
Here are some Bodybuilding.com user comments about Omega Sports as a company.

“As far as I’ve seen, very classy, science based, overall great company that will hopefully make it big.” –sdfan13

“Solid company.” –TheFugitive

“They make very innovative and high quality products.” –DR_P

Obviously, bodybuilders are generally happy with Omega Sports products. And, Omega Sports seems like a trustworthy company. But, that doesn’t necessarily mean BURN 24 is the best of the best.

Omega Sports BURN 24 is a fairly new supplement, so customer reviews are sparse. Here is the only testimonial I could find:

“I’d recommend this to anyone who is interested in dropping body fat . . . one of the best I have used.” –Celeste, NutraPlanet.com

While this sounds promising, it is no guarantee it will work for you. This could be a fake review posted by the company – or it may be a real review by one satisfied customer. Either way, one review is not enough to determine its effectiveness.

Pricing and Guarantee

Surprisingly, BURN 24 is not available on Omega Sports’ official website. Here are the best online deals I found:

• NutraPlanet.com: $39.99
• BestPriceNutrition.com: $39.99
• AllStarHealth.com: $39.99

Omega Sports offers a 100% money-back guarantee on all their products, no matter where you purchase it.

Is Omega Sports BURN 24 the Pill For You?

Omega Sports BURN 24 targets insulin imbalances. This could mean great weight loss for those with metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and extra belly fat. If you don’t suffer from any of these conditions, it may not be as effective for you.

The company is trustworthy, and the product is generally safe for all users. Omega Sports BURN 24 may be a viable option if you are looking to lose weight.
