About Burn TS

By HighYa Staff
Updated on: Jun 30, 2018

Brought to you by DietSpotlight, Burn TS is advertised as a powerful, advanced weight-loss formula containing a blend of science-backed ingredients that can help burn fat, boost energy, and shed pounds.

In addition, the manufacturer reports that the dietary supplement contains no artificial ingredients, fillers or binders; is gluten-free, non-GMO, made in the USA, and third-party tested for purity and potency.

To experience these benefits, you’ll need to take one capsule of Burn TS in the morning and another in the afternoon, 30 minutes before meals. According to the website, some men and women see positive results within the first several days, while many report hitting their weight-loss goals within the first month.

Just because Burn TS promises to deliver meaningful weight loss, and the company claims to have been on the market for more than seven years with 400,000+ customers, does this mean it represents a valuable use of your money? Let’s start by discussing fat-loss basics, and then we’ll find out how this relates to the supplement.

How Does Your Body Lose Fat?

While the scientific community understands the old ‘calories in, calories out’ adage doesn’t tell the whole picture (short story: the types of foods we eat can be just as important), the fact of the matter is that calories still represent one of the most straightforward ways of calculating the amount of energy contained in food.

Now, our body doesn’t simply hold unused calories in our stomach like unburned gas in a car’s tank. Instead, it stores this potential energy inside specialized fat cells called adipocytes. And if you consistently eat more calories than you expend, enough of these adipocytes will fill up so that this fat begins accumulating in the stomach (for men) or the hips and thighs (for women).

And although it’s certainly a heck of a lot simpler than it sounds, doing just the opposite (consistently burning more calories than you consume through diet and exercise) will cause the body to lose weight. How? By burning up the fat contained in these adipocytes.

Outside of eating properly and working out regularly, is there anything contained in Burn TS that will help you achieve faster, more pronounced results than the standard one to two pounds per week?

Are Burn TS's Ingredients Effective for Weight Loss?

According to the label listed on the supplement’s website, Burn TS contains the following ingredients:

  • Meratrim 400mg
  • Green Tea Extract 200mg
  • Chromium ChromeMate 100mcg
  • Natural Caffeine USP 75mg

Looking at these on their own, journals like Obesity Research and Lipids in Health and Disease indicate there’s some clinical evidence that Meratrim, caffeine, and chromium (or proprietary ChromeMate) can provide weight-loss benefits in humans.

The Meratrim In Burn TS

Meratrim is a proprietary ingredient manufactured by InterHealth USA that combines Sphaeranthus indicus flower heads and Garcinia mangostana fruit rind. Along with exercise (30 minutes of walking, five days per week), three double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies, two of which are publically available on the National Institutes of Health’s PubMed:

  • A 2016 study involving 60 participants, and found that it “is well-tolerated and is an effective ingredient for weight management in healthy overweight subjects.”

A 2015 toxicological evaluation that found the ingredient boasts “broad spectrum safety.”

On the other hand, while research into the health benefits of green tea is plentiful, writing for Medical News Today, Megan Ware RDN LD reports that scientists are still debating its potential effect on weight loss.

However, she notes that clinical studies show green tea possibly aids in the treatment of cancer, cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, stroke, and inflammatory skin disease.

Caffeine & Fat Oxidation

Burn TS’s manufacturer points out that one study in published in the journal Obesity Research found, “…caffeine intake was associated with weight loss through thermogenesis and fat oxidation and with suppressed leptin in women. In habitually low caffeine consumers, the green tea-caffeine mixture improved [weight management], partly through thermogenesis and fat oxidation.”

In other words, based on what’s reported by these two sources, green tea as a whole might not have enough clinical evidence to be labeled as ‘effective’ for weight loss, but the caffeine it contains could help the body burn additional fat.

The Relationship Between Chromium & Weight

While we didn’t encounter any large-scale studies on sites like the PubMed that looked at the relationship between chromium and weight loss, WebMD reports that supplementation could “lower fasting blood sugar, lower insulin levels, and help insulin work in people with type 2 diabetes.”

How does this relate to weight loss? Blood glucose levels, when they drop quickly, can cause hunger. Thereby, the manufacturer tells us that keeping these levels in check could help reduce cravings and calorie intake.

Are There Potential Side Effects With Burn TS?

According to the supplement’s website, a few individuals have reported “very mild headaches or increased heart rate” with Burn TS. If this occurs, you should discontinue use immediately and consult with a physician or licensed, qualified healthcare professional.

They also emphasize that women who are pregnant or nursing shouldn’t take Burn TS, or those who are under 18 years of age or who have pre-existing health conditions.

Caffeine (both the standalone ingredient and the natural levels found in green tea) is reported by WebMD and the Natural Medicines Database to sometimes cause nervousness, restless, and insomnia, especially for those who are sensitive to stimulants.

For chromium, WebMD notes that some people can experience other side effects like skin irritation, headaches, dizziness, digestive upset, mood changes, and impaired thinking, judgment, and coordination. No specific circumstances or dosages were noted.

How Much Does Burn TS Cost?

If purchased directly from the manufacturer as a 15-day trial, you’ll pay $3.95 S&H for a full-size bottle (60 capsules).

Along with your order, you’ll also receive a pill case and a 33-page e-book titled “21 Cheat Foods Guide.”

After 15 days have passed, you’ll be charged the full price of $89.95 and enrolled in the company’s autoship program. Here, you’ll continue receiving a new bottle of the supplement once per month, and charged $89.95 plus $5.95 shipping and handling each time.

To change shipping frequency, or to cancel or extend your trial, you’ll need to reach out to support at 844-964-3258 or customercare@dietspotlight.com.

If you’d prefer to avoid this trial and automatic enrollment in recurring shipments, Burn TS was also available at $88.99 per bottle on Amazon at the time of our research.

What Are Customers Saying in Their Burn TS Reviews?

On the DietSpotlight website, Burn TS had a 4.5-star average rating, based on more than 1,100 votes. Although it's important to keep in mind that these reviews were accumulated for the previous version of the product, Burn HD

We also encountered 220+ reviews on Amazon, where the supplement had a 4.3-star combined average rating. 87 percent of reviews on Amazon were four or five stars. Note: There were different entries for ‘Burn’ and ‘Burn HD.’ However, both names refer to the same supplement. This is not pertaining to the version of Burn TS at present time.

There, most compliments revolved around effective results (boosted energy, improved weight loss, etc.), no side effects, and solid customer support. On the other hand, complaints (one or two star reviews account for 8 percent of Burn HD’s reviews on Amazon) frequently referenced lack of results results, side effects (jitteriness, digestive upset, headache), and high price.

From a company perspective, DietSpotlight is based out of Coral Gables, FL and held a C+ Better Business Bureau rating, with 69 complaints, all of which but one were resolved. This data was taken as of 6/30/18

How to Choose Between Burn TS & Other Weight-Loss Supplements

According to Fooducate.com, the American weight-loss industry rakes in about $60 billion per year, with diet pills and meal replacement solutions making up about $3 billion of this.

Clearly, even if you’re just looking to purchase a supplement—which can range in price anywhere from $5 to $50+, the number of options can quickly become overwhelming. How can you cut through the marketing hype and make a more informed decision?

Start by Asking: Do I Need a Weight Loss Supplement?

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics reports that our nutritional needs should be met with food, which they are for the vast majority of the American population. In some instances, though, dietary supplementation might be warranted. A handful of examples:

  • Taking folic acid to help prevent neural tube defects
  • Supplementing vitamin D to prevent falls in “community-dwelling adults aged 65 years or older who are at increased risk for falls”
  • Taking a multivitamin for individuals who consume less than 1,600 calories per day
  • Other instances where an individual might have a gap in their diet

However, outside of instances diagnosable only by a physician, organizations like the National Institutes of Health, as well as their Office of Dietary Supplements, Harvard Health, and the UK’s National Health Service note that most of us don’t need to take a dietary supplement.

In her book Vitamania, Catherine Price adds to this list “the US Preventive Services Task Force, the American Cancer Association, the American Heart Association, the American Diabetes Association, and the American Academy of Family Physicians, among other respected health organizations.”

This is where your doctor can play a pivotal role in your decision by helping you discern whether you could benefit from a supplement like Burn TS, as well as whether it (or another option) might work best, based on your diagnosis.

In Your Complete Guide on How to Buy a Nutritional Supplement, we also recommend that when exploring different options (assuming your physician gives you the go-ahead, of course), you’ll want to focus on supplements with clinical support for the manufacturer’s claims.

Other important factors should be a straightforward return policy that gives you plenty of time to try the product, a competitive price, and a mostly positive online customer reputation.

What’s the Bottom Line About Burn TS?

On one hand, the supplement comes with a higher price (if you choose to continue beyond the sample) than many other options and gives you just 17 days (they provide an extra three days for shipping) to try before needing to request a return.

Given the amount of money potentially on the line, as well as the fact that your doctor is one of the single most important resources when deciding which supplement is right for you, we’d recommend scheduling an appointment before making a decision about Burn TS (or any other dietary supplement, for that matter).

On the other hand, Burn TS seems to tick a lot of important boxes. First off, it includes an ingredient (Meratrim) which is backed by several double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies. The previous version, Burn HD, also comes with solid ratings from consumers from Amazon, is backed by a 120-day return policy, comes from a company with a positive online reputation, and is available without a trial or autoship enrollment, if desired.

Editor's Note: The manufacturers (DietSpotlight) have notified us that they changed the product name from Burn HD to Burn TS. The name change to the product name has been reflected in this article accordingly as of June 30, 2018

  • Surprised at my results

    • Cape Coral, FL,

    • Verified Reviewer

    I’m pleasantly surprised at how well this worked for me. I’ve been trying to lose weight for a while and just could not get past a certain weight.

    I started taking these and sticking to my diet and exercise routine, and it did indeed help me past that plateau.

    I do get a little boost of energy with these as well, but no jitters, which was a huge thing for me.

    Overall, I would take these again if I ever need them, but I’m hoping I can maintain my new weight and not need to.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Unfortunately, these tablets did absolutely nothing except disturb your sleep and make you feel restless. I am somebody who can sleep very easily, but these really made me struggle to fall asleep...I know it was the tablets because nothing else has changed.

    A happy customer

    • Alabama,
    • Nov 19, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I received my sample pack of diet pill and the detox/cleanse. I spoke with a representative for the company, and he sent another two-week supply for free.

    I had already been dieting, but nothing would get me over that 143 hump. So I began to look for other types of pills to take.

    I lucked up on this one. I started losing weight immediately. This morning I was down from 143 to 139. I never thought I'd see the number 3 on my scale again.

    It really does curb my appetite - seems to help me think a little clearer and feel better. Naturally, when you step on the scale and the weight is coming off, you feel good.

    I ordered more pills yesterday and the detox. I really like the detox because I'm older (54) and have to take meds that interfere with BM's. The detox had me going every morning! I was happy about that part as well.

    I have absolutely nothing negative to say about the diet pill. I would recommend anyone at least give it a try. It's only $3 to get a two-week supply.

    My point of contact is Roger Moore, and he couldn't do a better job - it has been excellent working with him. I hope you all will give it a try.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Burn TS does a great job of giving you energy without the jittery feeling, and I have noticed a curve in my appetite. I don't snack throughout the day like I used to. I noticed the changes within the first few days of starting Burn TS.

    I could definitely feel the appetite suppressant working, and that was very important to me. No tummy troubles from taking this. Would be glad to recommend. I have tried different over-the-counter products and I can stay I truly feel like this combination works.

    Never deal with this company!

    • Boston, MA,
    • Sep 15, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    This is a huge scam, do not deal with this company! They will charge your account for a "subscription" you never agreed to and will not refund you for anything they send to you. If you try to get a "free sample" pack, you will automatically be charged monthly until you call to cancel, again with no refund. What you're sent has no contact information or number on the order receipt, so you’re left to piece it together on your own and find the contact info online to stop being barged an outrageous amount. Awful, DO NOT get anything from this company.
