It’s recently become de rigueur for supplement companies to combine ingredients you never thought you’d see together. Whether this is because customers are demanding more from their supplements, or companies are just looking for a way to stand out, it’s hard to say.

GNC has done this with a number of products, including the recent Amplified Wheybolic Extreme 60 Ripped. This is essentially a hybrid protein powder and fat burner which reputedly improves overall body composition.

The Protein Blend

The first thing worth mentioning is the type of protein you’re going to get in here. The main source of protein is whey protein isolate, followed by hydrolyzed whey. Both whey protein isolate and hydrolysate undergo processing to remove virtually all of the fat and lactose.

Because of this, Amplified Wheybolic Extreme 60 Ripped is going to be pretty low calorie. Each serving has 100 calories which includes 20 g of protein, 1 g of fat, and only 1 g of sugar.

Shredded Stuff

The main fat burning ingredient in here is going to be green coffee bean extract. This is an ingredient that’s gotten a lot of attention recently, thanks to its appearance on a certain television show that rhymes with Dr. Shmoz.

Green coffee bean contains a compound called chlorogenic acid, and is actually supported by research.

A study published in the journal Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity revealed subjects supplementing with chlorogenic acid for 12 weeks lost an average of 18 pounds, including 4.4% of their overall body fat.[1]

What’s more, you’re going to get some additional fat fighting support from the capsicum and brown seaweed in here. Capsicum helps suppress appetite and increases thermogenesis so you burn more calories.

Brown seaweed contains compounds called fucoxanthins, which enhance thermogenesis and kick up the body’s metabolic rate.

You should also be aware that there are 66 mg of caffeine in here. Amplified Wheybolic Extreme 60 Ripped is definitely something you’ll want to take in the morning to avoid sleeplessness.

Enzyme Matrix

Two important enyzme’s you’re going to find in here are protease and amylase. Protease is going to improve digestion and absorption of amino acids, and the amylase enzyme helps with carbohydrates digestion.

Taste and Availability

The French vanilla flavor I tried was strong, but didn’t think it was too overpowering. This does have some well-researched and effective ingredients, which appears to be reflected in the cost. Amplified Wheybolic Extreme 60 Ripped is going online for about $75-85.

Can a Protein Powder Really Get You Ripped?

Thanks to the caffeine and other thermogenics found in Amplified Wheybolic Extreme 60 Ripped, this definitely a great protein powder to start off the morning with.

It’s going to jumpstart your metabolism and help you burn extra calories during the day. It also contains fast digesting whey protein isolate and hydrolysate to immediately feed muscles and reverse a catabolic state.
