Redcon1 have been making a serious splash in the supplement market since their launch just a few months ago.
Headed up by Blackstone Labs co-founder Aaron Singerman you know this is going to be done right.
Double Tap is a thermogenic fat burning supplement which was specifically formulated for the Australia market.
Double Tap is a capsulated product in the US but this wouldn't work here in Australia.
We said to the Redcon1 boys to come up with something for Australia and after a few (well, actually a lot!) of test batches and samples, this is what we came up with.
Acetyl L-Carnitine 1000mg:
A must-have in any good complete thermogenic fat burner. ALCAR acts as a transport molecule moving fatty acids into the mitochondria where they are burned for energy. This has 100mg per serve which is a decent amount but under the effective dose. It's rare to see a full clinical dose of 3-5gm in a fat burner. We would recommend getting some ALCAR and adding it in with this to beef up the fat burning power.
Choline Bitartrate 750mg:
Crosses the blood/brain barrier to improve mental focus and cognition. Choline is a real feel-good nutrient and will have you in the zone in no time.
Green Tea Extract 500mg:
Widely known for its ability to increase thermogenesis and provide a natural energy source green tea has a wide of health benefits.
It's a powerful anti-oxidant and also provides a high concentration of catechins.
Dandelion Root Extract 200mg:
Most commonly known for its diuretic effects this compound is also great for mood enhancement and will have you feeling calm and relaxed in no time.
Green Tea Extract 500mg:
Widely known for its a staple in any thermogenic fat burner caffeine is a potent CNS stimulant to raise your metabolic rate. This also provides a fast-acting hit of energy and focus. At 150mg the kick is good without being too crazy.
Octopamine HCL 30mg:
Another powerful stimulant very similar to synephrine. Fast acting energy, sense of alertness and a nice boost in metabolic rate.
This is the area where this product really comes into its own. You get a nice boost in energy/mental quite quickly and you'll be feeling really happy shortly after.
Mental focus is great and the sense of well being is quite strong.
If you have a tendency to get a little hot from fat burners this will have you sweating it up if you take it pre-workout.
This is a real feel good fat burner. The appetite suppression is a nice benefit of the DMHA and the effects of this product last for a number of hours.
If you have a tendency to overeat and issues with appetite control when dieting then this would be an ideal product to try out.
In a word-epic! This comes in Pineapple and Strawberry Mango and the flavours are on point. In my opinion, these are hands down the best two flavours in the entire Redcon1 range. You can thank the Spartans Crew for these as we were the ones who tested/chose the flavours!
Not too sweet, mixes well, no artificial colours and no bitter aftertaste. Some of the best flavours on the fat burning market.
Redcon1 Double Tap Review
All in all, this is a great fat burning supplement. The formula is solid, the effects are fantastic and the flavours are on point. This is a product that provides a little bit of everything.
Energy, focus, mood enhancement, thermogenic, fat metabolisers and no crash.
Is it the most complete or highest energy product on the market? No, it's not.
That being said it ticks a lot of boxes and provides you with a product that will help you feel good while getting into great shape. Well worth a shot if you're looking for feel-good fat burning you'll look to taking every morning.
Value for Money
Each tub of Redcon1 Double Tap powder has 40 serves and retails for $79.95.
This makes it spot on $3/serve. Given the number of ingredients in the product and dosing of them, I would say this is good value for money.
