Presentation and promises of Turbo Ripper by Scitec Nutrition
Scitec Nutrition’s Turbo Ripper is a supplement in ultra-concentrated capsule form.
Its aim: to promote optimal weight management and fat elimination, thanks to a powerful, rapid and long-lasting fat-burning action.
According to the official website, Scitec Nutrition’s Turbo Ripper has multiple benefits:
- Activates thermogenesis, for maximum calorie and fat burning ;
- Effectively aids weight control;
- Increases fat burning;
- Reduces appetite.
Also on the official website, the recommended dose of Turbo Ripper is 4 capsules a day, to be taken in the morning on an empty stomach or 1 hour before training.
On other sites selling sports nutrition products, the recommended dosage is 1 capsule a day.
The high concentrations of active ingredients in Scitec Nutrition’s Turbo Ripper are undoubtedly behind the different dosage recommendations.
A particularly athletic person in a lean period might take 4 capsules before training or on an empty stomach.
A person on a weight-loss programme, practising a more moderate level of activity, might stick to one capsule a day, and observe the effects of Scitec Nutrition’s Turbo Ripper before possibly increasing the dosage.

Ingredients of Turbo Ripper by Scitec Nutrition
Turbo Ripper is made up of highly concentrated doses of 3 active agents: caffeine, acetyl L-carnitine and green tea.
Caffeine and its benefits for weight loss need no introduction.
In fact, this substance is officially recognized as an adjuvant to weight-loss diets, i.e. an ingredient capable of enhancing the effects of weight loss.
Caffeine activates lipolysis in fat cells, by inhibiting the cAMP enzyme phospohodiesterase. Its action strongly limits the formation of fat cells, but also the storage of fat in the body. Caffeine is also known to significantly increase thermogenesis. As a result, the body burns more calories and melts fat reserves.
2. L-Acetyl L-Carnitine:
Carnitine is involved in the transport of fatty acids.
This process enables the production of energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Carnitine therefore plays an essential role in muscle function, providing the fuel needed for physical effort. Carnitine is also said to improve physical performance.
3. Green tea:
Green tea is renowned for its slimming properties.
It stimulates lipolysis and thermogenesis. Thanks to its high catechin content, it boosts noradrenaline levels in the body. This hormone is also involved in increasing energy expenditure and fat oxidation.
Other ingredients in Turbo Ripper by Scitec Nutrition
This amino acid acts on weight loss and stress, reducing appetite and stress.
This ingredient is also very interesting because it prevents the fatigue felt when the stimulating effects of the product wear off. Tyrosine prevents the fatigue associated with intense sports, but also sometimes associated with strict low-calorie diets.
5. Cayenne pepper:
Capsaicin, derived from cayenne pepper, stimulates metabolism and thermogenesis, and thus increases fat burning.
Scientific studies on Turbo Ripper
No studies are available on the precise mix of ingredients in Scitec Nutrition’s Turbo Ripper.
However, individual active ingredients have been the subject of numerous clinical studies.
Here are a few examples:
Caffeine has been shown to promote weight loss via the process of activating thermogenesis and fat oxidation.
Green tea is recognized for its fat-burning effects.
A review from the University of Maryland Medical Center shows that green tea improves weight loss and helps maintain a healthy weight.

Carnitine has been the subject of preliminary studies evaluating its effects on improving physical performance. The results still need to be fleshed out as regards the effect of this substance on the ability to increase physical effort.
On the other hand, carnitine has been shown to reduce muscular stress after exercise, thereby reducing fatigue and speeding recovery.
Side effects and contraindications of Turbo Ripper
The presence of caffeine makes Scitec Nutrition’s Turbo Ripper a powerful product. In people sensitive to this active substance, side effects may occasionally occur. Insomnia, palpitations, anxiety, nervousness, changes in heart rate…etc.
It is therefore advisable to observe the effects of Scitec Nutrition’s Turbo Ripper on your body before increasing doses.
