Performix SST Review Feature Image

✓ Fact Checked

Introduction

The slower your metabolism is, the easier it is to gain weight and the harder it is to lose it (but that’s common knowledge these days). While in the past there wasn’t too much that could help, nowadays the supplement industry has a whole host of different products that can help treat the problem – these products are known as fat burners.

Unlike many other diet pills that are on the market, Performix have opted for an extra-cool liquid-delivery capsule. Aesthetics aside, does it have what it takes to deliver weight loss results?

In this Performix SST review, we’re looking at the ins and outs of this product to establish what we believe consumers can really expect from it.

What Is Performix SST?

SST is a weight loss pill produced by a US-brand named Performix LLC.

One bottle of Performix SST contains 120 liquid-capsules, costs $109.99 and will last users for approximately two months based on the set directions of two capsules per day; it can be ordered directly from the Performix SST website, as well as from GNC and Amazon.

Like almost every other product made by Performix, SST is marketed towards those who are looking for a powerful weight loss pill that can help them lose body fat quickly. Based on our research, SST is the first fat burner that Performix made (it was later followed up with products like SST v2X and SST Cuts). Performix themselves described SST as a “super suspension thermogenic” that comes with a whole host of effects useful for the purposes of weight loss.

Consumers of this product are told they can expect effects such as higher energy levels, a sped up metabolism and a lowered appetite.

Does Performix SST Work?

After conducting some in-depth research into this product, we believe that it may be somewhat useful for the purposes of weight loss, but only if it is used in a correct manner.

Prior to using Performix SST, you should set your expectations accordingly. Most people automatically assume that diet pills have the ability to “burn fat” but the truth is they cannot – Performix SST, while commonly referred to as a “fat burner” does not actually contain any ingredients within its formula that directly and independently “burn away body fat”.

Despite this, Performix SST does have its benefits, however the product should be viewed as a weight loss aid, rather than something that can counteract a high-calorie diet and inactive lifestyle.

By far the most useful effect Performix SST will provide users with is faster metabolic rates – by boosting the speed of your metabolism, you body may be able to burn calories at a faster rate which will allow for faster weight loss provided you’re sticking to a caloric deficit.

We believe that if you’re able to stick to a low calorie diet and start exercising, Performix SST may be a useful tool for helping you hit your weight loss targets sooner than you otherwise could have.

Are There Any Performix SST Reviews From Customers?

We have found the following Performix SST fat burner review testimonials via customers online:

I’ve taken a lot different supplements over the years and I have to say this one is the best I have personally taken since Ripfuel was on the market. It’s got the energy you want, and without the crash that you don’t need.

I used this product for about three months and didn’t see much results. For the amount of this thing costs that is very disappointing.

Our Final Verdict On Performix SST

To conclude our Performix SST review it’s a bit of a mixed bag – there are things that we like about it and things that we aren’t too blown away by.

Firstly let’s recap on the positive aspects of this product. Performix SST features an extremely potent formula that is absolutely loaded with stimulants; the product is highly likely to speed up your metabolic rates, which will trigger a thermogenic effect, allowing your body to start burning calories faster – as long as you are not overeating, this can lead to faster weight loss when used over a period of 8-12 weeks.

Furthermore, the product will more than likely provide users with a significantly energy boost (depending on their caffeine tolerance of course). Each serving has 250mg of Caffeine, which has been shown to reduce your RPE (rate of perceived exertion), allowing for a more intense workout.

Obviously, the product does have its downsides (like any diet pill). The most alarming thing is that Performix SST contains an ingredient named Yohimbe, which has been deemed “possibly unsafe” by WebMD due to its impact on blood pressure (it has the potential to send the consumers’ blood pressure levels soaring, which may have lethal repercussions). Furthermore, the product is pretty unlikely to have any impact on your appetite – there is nothing inside the formula that will promote a feeling of fullness or satiety. Finally, you should be aware that, because the formula is so potent, there is a very real possibility of users experiencing negative side effects.

Finally, the lack of money back guarantee and ultra-premium price point just put that off the product completely.
