360STIM is sports supplement produced in the US by 360CUT Performance Supplements. The company claim to be on a mission to provide athletes with the “most effective” nutrition products that will help them perform their best all day, every day and, according to the marketing material, 360STIM is an “intense focus and energy formula” that offers athletes three main benefits:
- Fast-acting, sustained energy
- Fat burning
- No crash
What is 360STIM and What Does it Do?
The company doesn’t outright define it but 360STIM contains fat burner ingredients and cognitive function boosters. The two types also provide energy as a result of their effects on the body.
It seems to be marketed as a general supplement to improve energy and focus more than anything but give the company name – 360CUT – you can presume they are into fat loss as an underlying theme.
What’s in the Formula?
Each capsule provides 585mg of a proprietary blend that consists of unspecified quantities of the following eight ingredients:
Caffeine Anhydrous: A powdered form of caffeine that gets to work fast. Caffeine is renowned for its ability to improve concentration and focus. It is equally well-respected as an energy booster, and scientific study shows caffeine has value as a fat burner.
Phenylethylamine: An ingredient that is naturally present within the human body. The phenylethylamine used in supplements is usually sourced from algae and is commonly added to nootropic supplements because it stimulates improved neurotransmitter activity and may enhance the mood by triggering the release of extra dopermine.
Synephrine HCL: A fat burning stimulant obtained from a variety of citrus fruit called citrus aurantium. Synephrine is a powerful ingredient that can deliver good results.
Hordenine: A molecule sourced from certain species of plant. Hordenine is a stimulant that is thought to possess fat burning qualities. It certainly appears to be good fit with the aims of the 360STIM blend, but it needs further research for more concrete backup.
Bacopa Monnieri: A plant extract that is often added to nootropic supplements designed to boost mental function. At least one scientific study suggests bacopa monnieri can improve the memory.
Green Tea Extract: A healthy ingredient that is unlikely to cause any side effects and has a scientifically proven ability to increase energy expenditure and fat oxidation.
Rhodiola Rosea: An extract taken from a perennial plant that grows in some of the colder regions of the world. Scientific study suggests rhodiola rosea has the ability to fight fatigue and stress.
Schisandra Chinensis: A popular Chinese herb. The manufacturer has added it to the 360STIM formulation as an energy booster. However, schisandra chinensis appears to be able to improve concentration and speed of thinking, but mostly when combined with Siberian ginseng, which is not in the blend.
How to Take 360STIM
Only one capsule is required each day and this should be consumed on an empty stomach, 30 minutes before a meal. It is important not to consume more than one capsule in any 24-hour period.
Side Effects & Standard Precautions
360STIM is not suitable for pregnant or nursing mothers or people who are under 18-years of age. Anyone who has existing medical conditions, or is taking medication(s), should consult a doctor prior to commencing supplementation. 360STIM should not be consumed alongside other sources of caffeine or stimulants of any kind.
There does not appear to be a money back guarantee.
Purchasing Options & Considerations
360STIM is available from a number of online stores including Tiger Fitness and Bodybuidling.com. The price can vary from one supplier to the next, but expect to pay $28 – $40 per bottle and, at the recommended dose, each bottle of pills should last for 60 days.
It is also possible to buy 360STIM via the 360CUT website, but this is usually the most expensive way to go.
Our Conclusion and Recommendation
360STIM contains some really good nootropic ingredients and some decent fat burners. At the right inclusion rates it would doubtless do a good job but we felt it was a little weak.
We are used to much stronger and more effective supplements such as Instant Knockout for the fat burning, nootropic, energy results. That would be our top recommendation. Do yourself a favour and read our review of it before you purchase anything else.
Just compare the ingredients alone!
