Quick SummaryShredded-AF is a top tier fat burner. This thing is no joke. Very powerful thermogenic that you can only gauge by using it for yourself. By far the most powerful fat burner I have ever used. It helped me shed a few pounds, and pushed me harder in the gym. I experienced different effects based on how I took it, but every time I knew this thing was working. Really surprised me because it did more than just lean me out. I got a jolt to my day and was ready to take on the world. I would definitely buy this again.
IntroductionAlright everyone, I decided to do a couple reviews on STEEL SUPPLEMENTS and really find out what this company is all about. Are their extreme talks about their products BS, or can they put their money where their mouth is? As the only reviewer of STEEL on SR, I'd like to invite any other TROOPs to take on this company with me. They have some interesting products and I wanted to do a full run on all of them, but I cant be the only one! I promise to review almost every product they have, as this is my second review on them. ADABOLIC was my first review ever on SR, and I've fallen In love with SR ever since....go check it out!
Now, Im 18 years old and I work out 5 d'ays a week. Im currently in college and its hard to balance the gym, school, work, and life all at the same time....so unfortunately my workouts take the hit if im short on time. I work as a spin instructor at my local gym, and that covers my cardio for me. I love chest and arm days, but have really been focusing on my legs and lower back in order to get my big legs back for football. Im training for football, and used to play soccer.
5'10 and 200 lbs, Im a pretty dense boy. I've been working out for almost two years and packed a lot of muscle onto me. Currently, Im happy with my physique, but I definitely have the extra couple pounds to lose, so I decided to opt in for Shredded-AF.Enough talk. Lets get into this product.

3.5 diiodo-I-thyronine 150 mcg [b/] - metabolism booster. Speeds up your thyroid to suppress appetite and support weight loss.
Taste/Mixability/DosingNo taste since these are capsule. Go down easy with water and are about the same size as any other gelatin capsule,
One dose is two capsules with a meal. Sometimes I would only take one capsule, or I would take on an empty stomach. This thermo had different stages, and based on how I took it I experienced different effects.
Okay, so there were definitely different effects with this supp depending on how I took it. At first, I would always take two pills after waking up with a cup of water. My heart would be racing for the next 4 hours. I felt very awake and almost used this as an alternative for my morning filled with energy drinks or coffee. I was very alert and happy that this would set me in a good mood. Although, I only felt my these effects when I was on an empty stomach.
This should be taken after a meal. I dont know why, in fact im pretty sure that the effects should be stronger on am empty stomach, but for some reason I felt SO much more when I took this with food. I would sit in class listening to my professors lecture, when all the sudden I would get hit with a sense of warmness. I was always warm. Not enough to sweat, but a good warm feeling and I knew I couldnt wear long sleeves or pants or else I would sweat. Your thyroid is sped up with this product and I could definitely feel some effects in my throat, I felt like I just swallowed a golf ball and could still feel something stuck in my throat. After class I would go hit the gym, and here comes the sweat.
I was sweating bullets. A little bit of cardio would make me look like I just showered, and im not even a heavy sweater. This could definitely be taken as a pre-workout, and sometimes I did. After my workout, I would go to shower and change and even after my workout was over with and 30 minutes later I was still sweating.
I've heard from people that I this and other fat burners supress your appetite but not me... maybe its because I like food too much??? lol I was always eating after and never felt that sense of "I really do not want to eat".
Now, one pill in the morning and I just felt the caffeine hit me. Two pills in the morning and I was alert and energetic and ready to go. Two pills with food - all effects are present and youre ready to shed some weight.
With shredded-af I lost 6 lbs while working out. Keep in mind I am not watching my diet, and continuing my normal training in the gym. Pretty good for me. I started leaning out and could definitely see my abs coming in.
ValueNow, a bottle of shredded will run you 69.95. but found it for 59.95 on Reuscos supplement outlet.
2.33 for one serving of shredded. 60 capsules per bottle and two capsules per serving will put you at a month of shredded.
A little expensive but im going to go on a bit of a rant...
Im writing my value to go with the sliding bar. I gave it a 7.4 because youre paying for a quality fatburner with good ingredients and the slider says "great value, I dont mind paying this much for what I get" which is true.
A lot of people read the price and try to burn me for giving it a good value, but like I said I would be willing to pay this again for this quality of supp. Value of the product comes to eye of the beholder...
Side EffectsNone...Extreme sweats! But thats the point!
ConclusionOverall, if youre looking to shed a few lbs hit up STEEL for a quality product that is sure to make the abs poppin. I found that it worked great for me and definitely would buy this again. I would most likely wait for a sale, but this thing was fantastic. Of all fatburners I tried, I was confident during the whole run that it was working.
See ya guys next time! Thanks for checking in.

I agree with what you did on Value. I always look at value as $$ per dose coupled with ingredient quality coupled with effectiveness. A supplement could cost you 5 cents a day and do nothing, no value in that. One could do great things for you and cost 2 bucks a day. I am okay with the you get what you pay for concept. Great review, this stuff looks intense!
