Return of FitMax: Formula Revealed

Return of the Flavored Fat Burner

Before we made it to the close of 2017, Performax Labs squeezed in confirmation of a supplement release it had planned for 2018. That release wasn’t exactly entirely new, it was in fact the return of its previously discontinued flavored fat burner FitMax.

Since we’re now in 2018, Performax Labs is continuing the hype for the return of its weight loss product. Today it has passed on the label for its upcoming FitMax, confirming each and every one of the supplement’s ingredients, all included to deliver clean energy, appetite suppression, increased focus, and improved performance.


You can see the full label for the new version of FitMax above, where not too surprisingly Performax Labs has put together a pretty full on formula. The product features just as many ingredients in its Burn blend as it does its Energy blend, with the likes of TeaCrine ( 125 mg ), eria jarensis ( 200 mg ), rauwolscine, L-carnitine L-tartrate ( 2000 mg ), Choline Bitartrate ( 2000 mg ), and Rhodiola Rosea ( 200 mg ).

Performax Labs is saying FitMax will officially return sometime very soon in the one 60 serving tub size, which is intended to last the usual 30 days. Users are directed to throw back one serving in the morning and another in the afternoon, or both together once per day.

When FitMax does eventually arrive, to start, Performax Labs fans will have just the one taste to choose from in Pink Lemonade. That one flavor, however, is said to be joined by a few other options following the launch of FitMax.

As far as we know, Performax Labs is still planning on launching FitMax in the first month of the new year. That release is also due to be followed closely by a new stimulant pre-workout from the brand sometime in February, then an amino competitor another month later in March.


For those who would prefer to take a capsule fat burner, we also have OxyMax

In healthly non-vegan people carnitine does not contribute to fat burning, so why carnitine tartrate in the formula? Why not ALCAR instead, which at least could work in the brain to enhance Acetyl Choline levels, especially in the presence of this large dose of choline bitartrate? Aside from that, this is pretty good formula overall. Thnx

Just as ALCAR has benefits independent of any potential fat-burning effects, so does LCLT. As to why ALCAR was not used, you mention its ability to increase acetylcholine levels in the brain; with the full dose of choline bitartrate, as well as huperzine-A, an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (AChE-I), FitMax already possesses solid acetylcholine increasing effects, from multiple angles.

As for why LCLT was used, multiple studies have shown that it is a useful supplement that is able to improve/enhance/accelerate muscle recovery from exercise. This is valuable any time, but can be particularly welcome during a cut, which is when many people will be using a fat-burner like FitMax. When you are in a caloric deficit, it can often take a toll on your recovery, which makes making progress, or even maintaining strength and size, on a cut a challenge. By improving recovery, LCLT can help you recover, allowing you to get back to the gym sooner and stronger. In addition to simply having a fat-burning effect per se, which it certainly does, FitMax also aims to help improve energy, focus, and performance. The LCLT can help with the performance aspect, as the studies referenced below will demonstrate. Other aspects of the FitMax formula like rhodiola can also improve performance. Performance often takes a hit during cutting, so we want people using FitMax to be able to perform to their max, to not just survive a cut, but to thrive on it, and ingredients like LCLT and rhodiola can help achieve this.

Some relevant research:

“Over the recovery period, LCLT reduced the amount of exercise-induced muscle tissue damage, which was assessed via magnetic resonance imaging scans of the thigh. LCLT supplementation significantly (p < 0.05) increased IGFBP-3 concentrations prior to and at 30, 120, and 180 minutes after acute exercise. No other direct effects of LCLT supplementation were observed on the absolute concentrations of the hormones examined, but with more undamaged tissue, a greater number of intact receptors would be available for hormonal interactions. These data support the use of LCLT as a recovery supplement for hypoxic exercise and lend further insights into the hormonal mechanisms that may help to mediate quicker recovery."

“Exercise-induced increases in plasma markers of purine catabolism (hypoxanthine, xanthine oxidase, and serum uric acid) and circulating cytosolic proteins (myoglobin, fatty acid-binding protein, and creatine kinase) were significantly (P < or = 0.05) attenuated by LCLT. Exercise-induced increases in plasma malondialdehyde returned to resting values sooner during LCLT compared with placebo. The amount of muscle disruption from MRI scans during LCLT was 41-45% of the placebo area. These data indicate that LCLT supplementation is effective in assisting recovery from high-repetition squat exercise."

“Compared to the placebo trial, muscle oxygenation was reduced in the LCLT trial during upper arm occlusion and following each set of resistance exercise. Despite reduced oxygenation, plasma malondealdehyde, a marker of membrane damage, was attenuated during the LCLT trial. There were no differences between trials in the vasoactive substance prostacyclin. In conclusion, because oxygen delivery was occluded during the forearm protocol, it is proposed that enhanced oxygen consumption mediated the reduced muscle oxygenation during the LCLT trial. Enhanced oxygen consumption would explain why hypoxic stress was attenuated with LCLT supplementation.”
