What’s the Problem?
GNC Burn 60 is a “clinically proven thermogenic formula that helps to enhance metabolism, burn calories and boost energy levels,” according to the GNC website. However, the supplement contains guarana seed extract, which is a stimulant that causes powerful amphetamine-like effects on the central nervous system, according to an April 2015 study published in PLOS One.
GNC 60 Side Effects
- Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
- Increased heart rate and blood pressure
- Irregular heartbeats
- And more
Guarana seed extract is dangerous to pregnant women, and for individuals who have high blood pressure or a history of heart disease, according to the International Food Information Council Foundation.
“Guarana is LIKELY UNSAFE and even deadly, due to its caffeine content,” according to WebMD. “The fatal dose of caffeine is estimated to be 10-14 grams. Serious poisoning can also occur at lower doses, depending on an individual’s caffeine sensitivity or smoking behavior, age, and prior caffeine use.”
