Is PhenGold really worth its weight in gold or is it just one big glittery fake? Read our PhenGold fat burner review to find out.
Gold is used to represent anything of high caliber. Be it a medal, a certificate, or a membership card, gold is perhaps the most iconic material used to rank someone (or something) as top tier.
Speaking of gold, here’s our review on one of the proclaimed best fat burners on the market. Judging by its name, it wants us to consider it an elite among the elite fat burners in the industry.

PhenGold fat burner’s ingredients are focused on three things: Energy, focus, and thermogenesis.
Let’s check out what’s inside.
B Vitamin Complex
Judging by the combination of vitamins, we take it that PhenGold fat burner is meant to be taken before a good workout. This is because B vitamins are known to specifically help muscle energy metabolism which can translate to better lifts and faster recovery.
Caffeine is a known favorite for anything related to stimulation. The dose of 225 mg isn’t too high that it’s going to get you crashing or anxious, but it’s still worth at least 2 cups of black coffee. If you’re not fond of coffee, then this could be a bit too much for you.
Theanine is found in tea and is considered the compound known to provide calming benefits. In the context of the formula, theanine can act as a way to balance caffeine’s “harsh” side effects.
This is more of a mood booster that also helps you cope with the stress of dieting and lifting weights. Tyrosine is found in a multitude of food sources including but not limited to spinach, beans, and whole grains.
Cayenne Pepper extract
Cayenne is known as a spice that just makes food taste spicy and arguably better. In this case, cayenne’s spiciness is used to create heat from fat – a process known as thermogenesis.
Green Tea standardised to 50% Polyphenols
This is one of the best in the business of fat burning. Many studies point to green tea’s potential at fast tracking fat oxidation to produce more energy. The dose is good, but the unfortunate thing is it’s not standardised for epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG, the very compound known for its fat burning benefits.
This is yet another mood booster, but the form of bitartrate means it’s not the most bioavailable form out there.
BioPerine Black Pepper extract
Rounding up the entire formula is perhaps the most premium absorption booster in the supplement industry. BioPerine is a concentrated form of black pepper extract, standardised for its piperine content. Piperine has been cited to help boost absorption by more than 10 times in several supplement ingredients.
Green Coffee Bean
This raw coffee bean ingredient isn’t roasted not because it’s hipster, but because of a compound called chlorogenic acid. Chlorogenic acid or CGA is known to help stimulate fat burning. Dosage is modest and it’s not standardised for CGA, but it’s a good addition nonetheless.
Rhodiola rosea standardised to 3% salidrosides
This is an adaptogen or an herb known to help manage stress. Not the most potent in the world of anti-stress herbs, but it’s still standardised which is always worth noting.

My verdict on PhenGold
PhenGold is a pretty shiny fat burning supplement with regards to its chosen ingredients. The formula and synergy tell me that the company did the right research or at least consulted the right experts. I also like how the company didn’t try to reinvent the wheel when it comes to fat burners; they kept familiar ingredients that just worked.
The problem we do is the price or the value you get for how much it costs. As we mentioned, the formula is too traditional to assume that price range. Not to mention not all ingredients are in its premium forms.
Overall, it works as a decent fat burner, but it is pricier than others available unless you buy the 3 months supply and get 2 months supply for free, which works out better value.
