Consumer Review: I Have Two Friends Who Are Taking Ripped Fuel And They Have The Worst Mood Swings.

What are the long and short term effects of the Ripped Fuel pill itself in whole? Does the pill effect the human psyche? Will it effect human emotions? What are the effects the product while smoking different types of drugs?

The reason I am asking is because I have friends who are taking ripped fuel and they have the worst mood swings. some of them will snap at the littlest things like inanimate objects that don' t do as they are supposed to, then forget they ever did it.

Please be honest about your answers to these questions. I'm not interested in the product for my own use. I just want the truth about this product.

Thank you for your time,
Tanya M.

I have not taken this myself but my husband has been taking it for a bout 3 months. I must say that I have also noticed his mood swings. He doesn't smoke or take any other drugs but he is also on other supplements. I can always tell when he has taken them (ripped fuel) because he becomes very hyper like a kid on sugar. I think his mood swings have more to do with the other supplements he's on. The Ripped fuel reaction is like that of speed lasting for about 4 hours. At least with my husband and other friends on it.

Hope this helps,

I have taken ripped fuel off and on for about 9 months and I have not noticed any strange behavior . It just gives you an energy lift. Nobody around me has said anything to me.

I have been weight training on and off for quite a while now. Although I am certainly not an Arnold look alike, within the past several months I have noticed a great deal of difference in my physique. I can honestly say that Ripped Fuel has helped me make these changes. It is the only supplement I am currently taking and I have noticed no negative side effects. The only thing that I have noticed is that I am able to train more intensively then before. I should also mention that I only take Ripped Fuel before a workout. An increase in my energy is noticeable and I guess you could say that I may be a little hyper, but not much; and since I am going to the gym within 20 minutes of taking the "Fuel" I burn up that extra energy during my workout.

I think that it would be worth anyone's money to purchase this product as an extra edge in achieving their weight training goals. Ultimately, it has helped me lose 15lbs but has also helped me put on my flat bench press.

Another piece of information I might include to anyone looking to get the most out of their workouts,would be to purchase Arnold Swarzenegger's "New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding. Not only does Arnold do a great job of covering the sport of bodybuilding itself, training exercises included, but he also has a good section on different training herbs and metabolites. It is a definite must for anyone interested in the sport or fitness in general.

I have taken Ripped Fuel for three weeks in conjunction with my natural body building program. It definitely has helped me cut up and does give me a noticeable buzz, or energy high. This lasts 4-6 hours. At first, I could hardly sleep. But with less dosage, I am back in my normal sleep pattern. I have not noticed any negative side effects.

I have been taking ripped fuel for a very long time now, and am on it now. I haven't seen any bad reaction or effects!!!!

I am in the United States Air Force, I have been taking Ripped Fuel religiously for over two years. We are required to take a cycle ergomertry test once a year that measures your heart rate and the way your body uses oxygen. I work out aerobically at least 3 times a week and should have no problem passing this test. I failed it, and after some research, I was informed that Ripped Fuel was a major contributing factor. It raised my resting heart rate anywhere from 10 to 15 beats per minutes. Once I laid off the fuel for a few weeks I passed the test with no problem. Just a word to the wise it really affects your heart rate.

I took Ripped Fuel for 8 months and my family and friends told me that I was more aggressive. My girlfriend had noticed my mood swings and couldn't tell what was wrong with me. Listen to RT. All that has been mentioned I have experienced. Taking 2 pills, 3x a day for 8 months I lost 80 pounds. I went from 260-178lbs. But this stuff makes you pretty messed up.

Response #8

I took ripped fuel this summer and I started up again now in college because I think I've been eating unhealthy and I want to make my workouts more effective. I always used to take 1 pill whenever I needed an energy boost or before workouts, but recently I've been taking 2 pills. The extra pill really has a big effect on me. I get jittery and I don't want to sit in the same place. I also experience a HUGE down. By that I mean that I get a huge headache when it starts to wear off, but that could be because I just started taking 2. I play hockey here and I would never take 2 pills and play, because in hockey you are out there sprinting for a couple of minutes and your heart rate skyrockets. The last thing you need is to be on 2 pills of ripped fuel, that's how people have died from this stuff (I did a LOT of research this summer before I took it).

So, in my opinion, its OK to take 2 pills before an endurance run or something that doesn't make your heart approach its maximum heart rate. DON'T TAKE 2 PILLS AND DO SPRINTS OR SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT. I don't want to see anyone harm themselves with this stuff. Again, all that is stated above is my personal opinion based on some internet research I did about 4 months ago.

My husband has been taking 3 Diet Fuels (red label), 3 Ripped Fuels (red label or bright orange) for 2 years on a daily basis. Every morning he wants his pills. He has a physical every year and he is perfect. I rather him continue to take his daily doses, because he gets real grumpy. I guess it just depends on the person.

I took ripped fuel for about 6 months now, and the results were incredible. I dropped 60 pounds and I feel great. At first it was hard to get used to, but then I got the hang of it. I'm not taking it now and I still feel great and I am in my best shape ever. I also would like to say that based on the responses that I have read, I noticed that there are people taking this stuff for years and years and this is something that is not good. What I think the creators of this supplement were trying to do was to give people that boost of energy when you need it the most, and not to take it whenever you are going out and playing basketball or something.

Also I noticed that the bottle said Metabolic enhancer, and by the time I had taken the pills for 6 months I noticed that my metabolism was too quick and it digested the food way before my body took any advantage of it. This is when I stopped taking it. Now I don't have to rely on ripped fuel all the time. I just use my own energy and I feel great. Just use ripped fuel as a boost to do activities you always wanted to do best, but don't rely on it too much.

I have been taking ripped fuel for about a year and a half. During the first 6 months, I was an alcoholic and I would have real bad mood swings (even when I was sober). But since I stopped drinking, I haven't had anything like that. I will get a little bit hyper, but that is the extent of it. Also, I have lost about 35 pounds since I have been taking them. I take about 4 a day to keep me going through work.

I take ripped fuel before workouts, and I very much agree with RT on how you should use it. I think you should only use it to enhance serious weightlifting and cardiovascular workouts. Stay away from it for recreational activities like basketball, light jogging, tennis, etc.

Physiologically, ripped fuel does increase your serotonin, making you feel somewhat high, happier, more motivated, more alert, more energetic. As for coming down, I have never had a problem with it, but how you react depends a lot on your own chemical makeup. Have you ever regularly taken drugs or meds? If so, coming down should not be a major issue for you because you have some tolerance to this effect. However, a bigger issue may be coming down on top of being mildly or otherwise depressed. If you are somewhat depressed and don't take any SSRI's, coming down may be very hard on you. If you experience a great deal of depression after coming down from ripped fuel, I would stop taking it or cut your dosage a great deal.
