Customer Review After Using Instant Knockout
What is Instant Knockout?
Developed by a company called Roar Ambition, Instant Knockout is a ‘revolutionary shredding formula’ that claims to activate whole body burn.
Originally developed for MMA fighters and professional boxers, their formula is reportedly based on scientific research and intended to:
- Help burn stubborn fat deposits
- Increase metabolism
- Reduce hunger cravings
- Increase energy levels
How Does Instant Knockout Work?
According to the official website, Instant Knockout is designed to attack your fat stores by increasing your metabolism.
It’s a 3-pronged attack that works as follows:
1. Boosts Metabolic Rate
According to Wikipedia, your metabolism is essentially the “chemical process that converts food to energy to run cellular processes, convert food/fuel to building blocks for proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids, and the elimination of nitrogenous wastes”.
In less-scientific words, it’s your body's fat burning source.
When you have a fast metabolism, your body burns fat at a high rate.
When you have a slow metabolism, your body struggles to burn the fat, and stores it as a reserve (usually in your mid-section for men, and butt and thighs for women).
2. Appetite Reduction
The ingredients in Instant Knockout (discussed in detail below), are also potent appetite suppressants.
Losing weight / keeping the weight off is really a matter of calories in being lower than the number of calories burned in a typical day.
For example, let’s say you need 2,000 calories a day to maintain your current weight.
If you eat 300 calories less per day, you’ll lose weight.
If you eat 300 calories more per day, you’ll gain weight.
Instant Knockout is apparently designed to help you eat fewer calories, resulting in substantial weight loss.
3. Fuels Energy Levels
Apart from eating less, you’ll also need to workout.
When you’re eating fewer calories, you’ll have less energy to workout (which can be a problem).
This is where Instant Knockout is supposed to shine.
Instead of being tired and lethargic, it apparently will help to fuel your body's energy reserves, allowing you to push through a sustained workout.

While all of these ingredients are an important addition, the manufacturer states that 3 of them are critical to achieving the results you’re looking for.
They are Green Tea Extract, Cayenne Pepper, and Glucomannan.
OMK reached out to Maggy Doherty, a registered dietitian, and nutritionist, to get her take on this.
Here’s what she had to say about each of the primary ingredients in Instant Knockout:
Green Tea Extract
Green tea extracts have been labeled as a “fat burner” and proposed to increase weight loss through its ability to increase your fat metabolism.1
The primary components in green tea extract that are believed responsible for this are catechins and caffeine.
Catechins are a polyphenol that has anti-oxidant and antiviral properties; it is thought to stimulate fat oxidation through direct inhibition of catechol=0-methyltransferase, an enzyme that degrades norepinephrine.2
Caffeine may suppress appetite, increase energy expenditure, and elicit short-term thermogenic effects (aka increasing your resting metabolic rate).
Clinical Trials of Green Tea Extract
A 2012 Cochrane review of 15 randomized controlled trials of at least 12 weeks duration comparing green tea preparation to control in overweight or obese adults found that the weight loss in adults who had taken a green tea preparation was small, not statistically significant, and not likely to be clinically 3
There is not enough evidence to determine if green tea can aid in weight loss, 4 however it MAY help with weight loss, but it likely will be a small amount (but, hey that’s better than none –right?!)
Other notable facts:
- Additional benefits you may reap include enhanced mental alertness due to the caffeine 4
- Green tea is safe for most adults in moderate amounts. 4
Be mindful that green tea extracts contain caffeine, which can cause insomnia, anxiety, irritability.
Cayenne peppers may boost your metabolism by increasing your internal body temperature and in turn increasing your calorie burn.
This is attributed to the active compound in chili peppers, known as capsaicin, which makes them spicy or “hot”.
Clinical Trials of Cayenne Pepper
A 2014 meta-analysis of 19 studies looking at the effect of capsaicinoids (naturally occurring chemical in chili peppers), found that daily consumption of capsaicinoids may contribute to weight management through a reduction in energy 5
Note: capsaicin is a type of capsaicinoid and the most common.
Glucomannan is a water-soluble fiber supplement made from the root of the konjac plant.
Fiber is an essential nutrient in weight loss because it takes longer for your body to digest, keeping you fuller for longer, which can lead to increased satiety and decreased calorie
Several randomized control trials did not find that glucomannan intake generates statistically significant weight
Although this one may not yet be supported for weight loss and fat burning, it has multiple benefits ranging from helping constipation, slowing the absorption of sugar and cholesterol, and improving blood lipid and sugar 6
Instant Knockout Reviews
In general, reviews of Instant Knockout were mostly positive.
Some users report that it doesn’t work at all, and some say that it indeed did help with weight loss.
On the one hand, you have nothing but positive reviews on the Instant Knockout website.
Here’s an example of a review on their official website:
“I have been using it for three and a half months now and I can tell you this stuff is magical. I’m losing 2 – 2.5 kg (4.5 – 5.5 pounds) per month without any side effects and the results are constant month in, month out. In a few months, 15% body fat will be a reality. I’m so happy about that. And yes, I recommend Instant Knockout with all my heart to everyone serious about losing body fat.”
