Welcome to our Genone Labs Oxy Shredz Elite review – now updated for June 2021. It’s a fat burner designed to help you get more out of your diet and workouts, and achieve your body goals. But does it work? We’ll start this off by giving you our short summary, followed by a more detailed breakdown of its ingredients below.
[OXY SHREDZ ELITE SUMMARY] This is one of the worse fat burners we’ve reviewed. Its manufacturers are completely dishonest, claiming all these fabulous benefits, but at the same time, they’re not confident enough to be transparent. Staring at you from the label is one big ugly proprietary blend, a concoction that prevents us from knowing how much of each ingredient is inside. It’s also using a risky stimulant Rauwolscine, which is similar in effects to the banned compound Yohimbine. This fat burner is a decent choice only if you’re highly experienced with stimulants and like their aggressive effects.
Genone Labs Oxy Shredz Elite Review – The Basics
Today we’ll be reviewing Genone Lab’s flagship fat burner for you – it’s called Oxy Shredz Elite.
It promises the following benefits:
- Increased focus
- More Energy
- Enhanced sense of well-being
This entire product is formulated with a blend of natural ingredients. The blend’s dosage is a bit shady; you can only see the combined doses of all the ingredients in it, but not their individual doses. Obviously, this makes it harder to know how safe and effective the product is.
We’ll look at what the science says about its ingredients, and check the serving sizes. This should tell us a bit more about its effects.
The ingredients list of Oxy Shred Elite includes mostly plant-based, all naturall ingredients. The main problem is that you can’t see their individual doses. So yeah.. you don’t know how much is going into your body. Not great!
Generally, the ingredients themselves look fairly safe, with one exception – Rauwolscine. This is a risky inclusion. Especially when you pair it with caffeine, which is exactly what Genone Labs have decided to do.
Another thing is that, most of the ingredients you see on the label aren’t generally used in most fat burners. That’s because they just haven’t been shown to be effective.
See for yourself:
Caffeine is a staple ingredient to most people’s life. It’s a highly effective CNS stimulant that triggers a chain of thermogenic reactions in the body, resulting in better focus, higher energy levels, and increased caloric expenditure. In other words, it helps you burn more fat. (study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4462609/)
As well as this it can also increase the benefits of other metabolism-boosting ingredients, such as cayenne pepper or green tea. Athletes have long been using it to boost alertness, endurance and longevity in sports. This is overall an essential ingredient in a fat burner.
But there’s a thin line between a good caffeine dose and too much. You need a dose of 150-200mg spread evenly throughout the day for optimal results. More than that could easily lead to side effects. We don’t know how much caffeine there is in Oxy Shredz Elite as it’s a part of a proprietary blend.
2. Bacopa Monnieri
Bacopa Monnieri is a memory enhancer. We aren’t sure how it has found its way to a fat burner. It really can’t do much for you in that regard. Also, we don’t know its dosage here, and that is very important. Bacopa’s nootropic effects are best felt at doses higher than 100mg per day. For all we know it could be as low as 1mg in Oxy Shredz Elite. They can still keep its name on the label to make it look fancy. More on Bacopa here: https://examine.com/supplements/bacopa-monnieri/
3. Bauhinia L.
Bauhinia L. is a flowering plant. It has absolutely no proven effects on weight loss. It has no benefits whtasoever. You have to ask yourself… what’s up with all these pointless ingredients in Oxy Shredz Elite?
Rauwolscine works similarly to Yohimbine, which is an a aggressive stimulant banned in some countries. Rauwolscine is reportedly even stronger than Yohimbine. It helps your body use more stored fat for energy.
Some people will like this ingredient, but only if you can tolerate high doses of stimulants. Otherwise, it’s best to avoid it because it can cause serious side effects (more on that below). It’s also understudied so its long-term effects aren’t known.

5. Geranium Oil
This is extracted from different types of flowers, however, it hasn’t got a lot of research backing it. It’s a very weak compound from what little research we were able to find on it. It’s also worth noting that a few studies found it to be completely ineffective.
Selenium is a good choice. It doesn’t burn fat, but it’s an important antioxidant that helps your body fight off oxidative stress. This strengthens your immune system and helps you stay mentally and physically strong while on a calorie-restricted diet. More on Selenium: https://examine.com/supplements/selenium/
Magnesium is an essential mineral that can help you burn fat. It can do this by raising your testosterone levels. The higher your T is, the more muscle you’ll build and naturally have a faster metabolism. Keep in mind though, that we don’t know the dosage nor the form of magnesium in Oxy Shredz Elite. You need around 400mg of highly bioabsorbable Mg to get its benefits, otherwise it all goes down the drain (literally and figuratively).
Niacin or vitamin B3 has many small roles in your body, including regulating LDL cholesterol. You’ll get it from some plants, eggs and most other animal foods. However, the irony with this ingredient is that it’s been shown to cause insulin resistance when supplemented.
If you aren’t aware, insulin resistance is a condition where your body becomes unable to burn off excess fat, along with storing excess adipose tissue in the belly. Insulin resistance is also suggested to be playing a major role in the onset of many chronic diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure.
There are quite a few ingredients missing from OxyShredz Elite fat burner. It’s missing an appetite suppressant to help with cravings, along with something that would go well with caffeine in boosting thermogenesis.
It would be a much more effective formula if it included the following:
- Chromium – helps regulate blood sugar levels to prevent weight gain.
- Cayenne Pepper – Boosts metabolism by increasing the body’s core temperature.
- Green Tea Extract – In addition to stimulating fat breakdown, it also provides antioxidants for immunity and overall health.
- Glucomannan (Konjac Root) – The best known natural appetite suppressant.
How to Use Oxy Shredz Elite
Dosage instructions for Genone Labs Oxy Shredz Elite are 3 capsules per day. This is a good amount, but it’s not dosed evenly. You’re instructed to take them all at once, which is ineffective at keeping you topped up throughout the day.
The best fat burner will use 3-4 daily servings to ensure the effects don’t wear off after a few hours.
Oxy Shredz Elite: Side Effects
Genone Labs Oxy Shredz might be packed with caffeine which can give off the illusion that it’s working. The only risk from side effects comes from the combo of caffeine and Rauwolscine, both of which are stimulants. This is never a smart combo, not even for the more experienced individuals. Not to mention we don’t know their doses. Too much and it can lead to:
- High blood pressure
- Heart problems
- Anxiety episodes
Price and Value for Money?
As we said, Oxy Shredz Elite can be bought on some 3rd party sites. You might be able to find it on Amazon. The cost is around $35 for a bottle of 90 capsules. Since you’ll be taking 3 capsules per day, it will last you one month. It’s not the best value for money considering the risk it brings. The proprietary blend prevents us from assessing its safety.
Conclusion to Our Oxy Shredz Elite Review
So that concludes our Oxy Shredz Elite reviews.
Oxy Shredz Elite is a product that looks great, has some good marketing copy, but what’s the point when it’s all rusty under the hood. The ingredients aren’t great, it’s missing a lot of the essentials, and it’s quite aggressive with its caffeine and Rauwolscine combo.
When you consider that the ingredients are completely masked in a proprietary blend, meaning you can’t tell their individual doses, it’s pretty clear this is one of the more shady supplements we’ve reviewed lately.
While it might give you a bit of an energy boost from the caffeine and Rauwolscine combo, there’s very little else that it offers, and it has a lot of proven and ineffective ingredients. It even uses flowers in its formula. These serve absolutely no purpose here. Alright, they might make it smell good… but that’s about it!
Overall we just aren’t convinced by this one – there are far better choices on the market right now.
- Caffeine boosts energy and focus
- Bacopa Monnieri can help with mental aspects of dieting
- Big dose of 3 capsules at once, might provide you with good short-term effects
- Ineffective and possibly dangerous for long-term use
- Uses a proprietary blend which hides how much of each ingredient it contains
- Poor serving schedule
- Caffeine and Rauwolscine combo is only for those brave at heart
