Burn TS fat burner is weight loss supplement which works by increasing internal body temperature. Primary ingredient is proprietary blend Meratrim®. It has mild thermogenic ingredients like caffeine in it. Still, in theory, should not cause serious discomfort or side effects to female dieters.
Why I’m highlighting female dieters specifically?
That’s because men can tolerate caffeine or any other thermogenic boosters in larger dose. Men booze more than women, right?
BIG Breaking News!

Top 10 Fat Burner?
The official website makes bold claim that Burn-TS is the top 10 fat burner sold on Amazon market place. Based on my research it no longer appears to be true. While writing this review article it has been ranked at #36 position on Amazon.
Nevertheless, it is one of the serious contenders in the flooded ‘fat burners’ market.
Suspicious 5-star ratings
79% users on Amazon have left 5-star rating to this product. Precisely, it is the ‘verified customers’ who trigger alarm bell. Some websites and independent bloggers allege that these 5-star ‘verified customers’ feedbacks are ‘manufactured’ by the promoter. Although I could not make such conclusion, it still looks very suspicious.

Now let’s investigate 1-star rated reviews from angry & disappointed customers. (click to enlarge)
Fakespot.com is a Amazon review analyzer. It can easily detect fake reviews posted on Amazon through algorithm. Out of curiosity I analyzed Burn TS on it. For my utter shock, fakespot said nearly 65% amazon reviews are fake.

Burn TS review analysis from FakeSpot
Kindly note this fact before judging a product from Amazon market place. Not all happy customers leave positive reviews or testimonials. It’s the unhappy & disappointed customers who bash the product & post low ratings.
Many people don’t research thoroughly whether the supplement is suitable for their body & health condition or not. That’s the primary reason for ‘it didn’t work for me’ type of complaints.
Burn TS Review
Meratrim® is the primary ingredient used is Burn-TS. It is a proprietary blend made from Sphaeranthus indicus (a flower) and Garcinia mangostana (a fruit). The exact ratio is 3:1
There was a 12 weeks, double blind placebo clinical study sponsored by the Meratrim’s manufacturer. And the resulting report highlighted good weight loss result.
During the study period participants were put on 2000 calories diet and advised to go for 30-minutes’ walk. At the end of study, the Meratrim group has lost an average 11 pounds (5.2 kg). The other group (placebo) only lost about 3 pounds (1.4 kg)
That’s pretty good result if you consider 2000 calories per day and only 30 minute of simple exercise (walking)
Meratrim Gets Dr Oz’z Approval
On 2nd February 2014, Dr Oz gives Meratim much needed market stimulation. In his popular health-entertainment episode, Dr Oz’s show, he declares Meratrim as ‘triple your fat loss’. That was enough for it to become miracle fat burner.
Is Meratrim greatest fat burner?
My doubt was cleared by Amazon once again. There is an 800mg MeraTrim supplement for about 30 bucks. Around 50% customers said it works and remaining said it doesn’t.

The second ingredient is ChromeMate®
ChromeMate® uniquely combines the benefits of chromium and niacin into a single mineral complex. ChromeMate® has been clinically studied, and may be used to help maintain healthy blood sugar, cholesterol levels and body weight. Preclinical research suggests that ChromeMate® increases absorption compared to other forms of chromium tested.
The other 2 ingredients include Green tea extract & 75mg of caffeine.
Caffeine is the most widely used stimulant in the world. You’d be hard pressed to find an effective weight loss supplement that did not contain this ingredient because it is effective in boosting metabolism. You traditionally consume caffeine in drinks and foods. The most common drinks that contain caffeine are coffee, soft drinks and energy drinks.
Green tea extract is the star of Indian and Chinese medicine. With centuries of use under its belt and hundreds of clinical studies, green tea extract is one of the few weight loss ingredients with strong clinical backing. You can find green tea extract in thousands of weight loss products, but it is most effective when used with other ingredients backed by scientific research.
- Does not cause any harmful or severe side effects
- Has been the subject of two peer reviewed clinical studies
- Distributor provides user testimonials
- At about $60 per month, it’s pricier than some other supplements and weight loss plans
- Caffeine in the product could cause some users to feel jittery
- Company has awful reputation
- Many customers reported serious side effects

They scammed me too. I got the free trial last month, which never stated any recurring few for monthly shipments. I called them to get my $95.90 back after my husband discovered the charge today. They refused to give it to me. After I explained that my husband lost his job and us losing our car and that I wasn’t working, the CSR said they would check to see if I could get one, but they only came back to say they can’t do that since the system was down to check my account even though I gave they pulled it up at the beginning of the call. They said they would call me back, never did. I call them back several hours later, I get the same rep who was giving a rehearsed line. I call another number and get the account manager, but he wasn’t willing to help. My husband told him off. Anyway, he knew I had called earlier, so he should have known my situation. I may try again tomorrow to remind them what they have stolen at a really bad and stressful time in my life right now.
Even i feel that burns ts is same as Leptigen which i bought few years ago. Thanks for comparing the similarity
I got duped too. I’m unable to contact the company. The telephone number is only for sales query, for cancellation they are asking to send email which i did… still they take money from my card 🙁
scam scam SCAM.. I’m trying hard to cancel my free trial as well. Never trust this dietspotlight
