Shred Time Fat Burner - 5% Nutrition



Rich Piana 5% Nutrition Shred Time® is an OVERDOSED thermogenic powerhouse packed with effective ingredients. We decided to step in and show the competition how it’s done. We use the most effective, well-researched, and sought-after ingredients available. Compare the Shred Time® formula to the competition, and you will see what a fat burner should look like.

Shred Time® stimulates fat loss, increases energy levels, suppresses appetite, and puts your body into a sweat-pumping, thermogenic state.


As expected from 5% Nutrition, Shred Time® takes fat loss beyond anything the competition offers. We use a formula that targets fat loss using multiple pathways, giving you energy, focus, and mood elevation so you can conquer your workouts and your day.

N-Acetyl L-Carnitine Hydrochloride – 1,000 mg – This highly bioavailable form of Carnitine is synthesized in the liver from the amino acids lysine and methionine. The primary function of Carnitine is to transport stored fat to the mitochondria, which can be used as energy by the body.(7)

Green Tea Extract – 500 mg – Standardized to 50% EGCG – Green Tea is well known for its antioxidant benefits. This is due to its active ingredients, known as catechins. The most effective catechin is Epigallocatechin Gallate or EGCG. Did you know that EGCG also targets storing fat for energy? Here’s how: the hormone norepinephrine signals the breakdown of fat to be used as energy. EGCG inhibits the enzyme that breaks down this hormone, allowing it to send a stronger signal so more fat can be used as fuel.(8)

Green Coffee Bean Extract – 250 mg – This compound is unroasted coffee beans. This means the active ingredient, Chlorogenic Acid, stays intact. What does Chlorogenic Acid do? Preliminary research indicates it can help reduce carbohydrate absorption. Additionally, animal studies have suggested that it improves the function of the hormone adiponectin. This is considered the primary fat-burning hormone in the body.(9,10) These three ingredients work synergistically to signal your fat-burning hormones to burn stored fat for fuel.

Cocoa Alkaloids (Theobromine) – 50 mg & Theobromine – 50 mg – This compound is found in chocolate, kola nuts, and other foods. It’s similar to caffeine but has a milder stimulant effect. This means theobromine helps ease the harshness of caffeine, so you experience a smoother energy effect. Some companies load up the caffeine despite the negative effects it can cause. Leave it to 5% Nutrition to use two sources of this compound to help smooth out our hardcore caffeine dose.(11)

Gamma-Butyrobetaine Hydrochloride (GBB) – Some call GBB “Super Carnitine”. So what is it? GBB is a precursor to L-carnitine and increases the body's natural L-carnitine production. GBB has been shown to double the plasma concentration of carnitine in the body, which amplifies the effects Carnitine has to offer. One of the big selling points of GBB is that it increases sweating. This means increased thermogenesis for faster fat loss.(12, 13)

Alpha Yohimbine Hydrochloride (Rauwolfia) – 3 mg – This is an alpha-2-receptor antagonist that stimulates increased noradrenaline production. It’s a mild stimulant that increases the body’s use of energy. Alpha Yohimbine helps burn “stubborn” fat by blocking the a2 receptor, which shuts down fat burning. The term “stubborn fat” comes from this because fat, the a2 receptor, makes fat harder to burn. By blocking the a2 receptor, stubborn fat becomes easier to burn.(14)

Sweat It Out Complex

CaloriBURN® Grains of Paradise Extract – 50 mg – This plant originates in West Africa and contains an active phenol compound called 6-paradol. The CaloriBURN form of Grains of Paradise is a premium quality, stim-free, herbal fat-loss ingredient that contains 12.5% 6-paradol. This compound has been shown to stimulate thermogenesis in B.A.T. or brown adipose tissue. It does this by supporting the conversion of stored fat into BAT, which the body can burn as energy.(15)

Cayenne Pepper Fruit Extract – 50 mg – This patented compound contains an active ingredient known as Capsicum. It can stimulate an increase in the body's core temperature (thermogenesis), which burns more calories as energy. Capsimax is designed to prevent the burning sensation that regular cayenne pepper can cause.(16)

Appetite Suppressant Complex

Hoodia Gordonii Extract Powder – 375 mg – Hoodia is a plant originating in South Africa that has an extended history of use as an appetite suppressant. Traditionally, it was used by native tribes to help control hunger during hunting expeditions. Hoodia has become a popular fat loss aid due to its appetite control properties. Hoodia’s believed to work by tricking the body into thinking it’s satiated. The active ingredient in Hoodia is P57, which was discovered by the South African Council for Scientific and Industrial Research in 1977.(17)

Saffron – 88.5 mg – Saffron is a spice that originates in Greece and has an extended history of medicinal use. Research has indicated that Saffron may control appetite and cravings by elevating mood, which decreases the desire to snack. Another mechanism of action suggests that Saffron increases the feeling of being full, so you eat less.(18) Who else but 5% Nutrition can create a powerful appetite suppressant complex that will bring your hunger to its knees?

Fat Burner Blend 365 mg

Caffeine Anhydrous – 295 mg – Caffeine is the most popular energy and alertness compound. Beyond its ability to increase energy and improve focus and alertness, Caffeine is thought to stimulate thermogenesis.(19) We use several forms of Caffeine in Shred Time® to create extended, smoother energy and activate thermogenesis. This version of Caffeine has had the moisture removed, making it more potent gram for gram than regular Caffeine.

CognatiQ®️ Coffee Fruit Extract – 50 mg – This patented natural extract comes from the coffee arabica plant. CognatiQ®️ has been shown to dramatically increase protein levels known as Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF). This protein is active in the brain and central nervous systems. It supports memory, learning, and cognitive function. CognatiQ®️ produces a stimulant-like effect that works well with the other forms of Caffeine in Shred Time.

Guarana Seed Extract – 10 mg – This South American fruit contains 22% Caffeine. That’s more Caffeine than a coffee bean! Guarana has a slow energy release because of compounds called tannins, leading to a smooth, extended energy experience.

Infinergy™ Dicaffeine Malate – 10 mg – Infinergy™ is a combination of Caffeine and Malic Acid that increases energy, elevates focus, and stimulates thermogenesis. This type of caffeine is buffered to reduce stomach discomfort. Malic Acid is involved in the cellular energy processes of the body. We’re referring to a long-lasting caffeine complex without the usual adverse effects but with extended energy and thermogenic power!
