To be alpha is to command the attention of the people around you without any real effort. Your sheer presence is enough to make them look at you and think “Damn, that guy is alpha af!”
Essentially, anything with the word “alpha” is something that is actually not alpha. I mean, if you’re so alpha, you wouldn’t have to tell other people “Hey, I’m alpha!”
Alpha Lean 7 fat burner begs to differ. Real alpha dudes should always make it known who’s in charge.
With a formula that is claimed to be exclusively for pros and advanced users, Alpha Lean 7 fat burner comes in and tells every other fat burner to shut up and listen to what it has to say.
Can Alpha Lean 7 fat burner justify the “alpha” label or is it just a bottle of hot air? Read my Alpha Lean 7 fat burner review to find out!
About Alpha Lean 7
Alpha Lean 7 fat burner claims it’s something only for the advanced and experienced. They describe themselves as a product that initiates a violent assault on the body. Quite a scary description for a supplement that wants to help you. They also use buzzwords like arsenal, weaponry, fitness warriors, and divine physique.
To date, that is the first time I’ve seen those words in one sentence. That’s a sign of pretentiousness, and being pretentious needs a lot of backing. So, I hope Alpha Lean 7 fat burner can walk the walk.
- Familiar ingredients. It’s always good to see familiar faces in supplements.
- Prop blend. All that talk of being fierce, but wasn’t brave enough to show doses.
- So many ingredients. That’s not usually good…

Alpha Lean 7 Review: ingredients list
Alpha Lean 7 fat burner has the kind of formula label that I really, really dislike.
First, it doesn’t look professionally done. Like, at all. That label doesn’t even look like it was done using FDA standards.
Second, I really can’t get the reason behind using a prop blend in this day and age. Bro, no one’s going to copy you. Your formula isn’t original and even if it is, there’s a good chance you probably copied most of it from another product anyway.
Lastly, the way the ingredients were just bunched up together like that is just disrespectful. It’s messy and just not easy on the eyes.
Labeling aside, the formula contains ten ingredients in total, contrary to what I thought would be seven total ingredients because of the Alpha Lean 7 fat burner name. Now, imagine stuffing 10 ingredients inside a capsule with a total serving size of 675 mg. You can just imagine the problems that would entail.
Let’s give Alpha Lean 7 fat burner the benefit of the doubt. I mean, some ingredients work with less than 50 or even 10 mg, so maybe Alpha Lean 7 fat burner ain’t so bad after all.
Alpha Lean-7 Proprietary Blend, 675 mg
- Caffeine anhydrous. The first ingredient in this blend, and this is actually not good. This means caffeine is owns the largest dosage and makes this fat burner largely dependent on stim. I wanna guess at least 250 mg for this energy booster. That’s my max dose if I ever make a supplement of my own.
- Taraxacum officinate (dandelion powder). This flower here has chlorogenic acid, a compound normally found in green coffee bean extract which is a really potent fat burner. Chlorogenic acid supports blood sugar management, improves digestion, and supports fat burning.
- Also known as DMAE, this ingredient is more nootropic than fat burner. As far as weight management is concerned, it’s said to support natural energy levels. Its real function, however, is for boosting mental performance like memory and focus.
- Theophylline anhydrous (natural). This is more like caffeine’s cousin. From what I gather, it’s found in cacao beans and studies say it increased overall caloric burn and carb metabolism.
- Eria Jarensis extract N-Phenyl-Dimethylamine. Another nootropic (seriously, Alpha Lean 7 fat burner?). It helps with mood and brain function. Not really a fat burner, but it could help with weight loss through stress management when dieting.
- Betaine Anhydrous (TMG). This is a pre workout ingredient first and foremost. The studies about it say it helps with body composition (aka less fat storage, more lean mass). It’s great in this blend, but the dosage is likely too low for it to have any significant ergogenic effect.
- Green Tea Extract (50% Catechins). Green tea is one of the best fat burners in the world. While Alpha Lean 7 fat burner managed to squeeze this in, we doubt the dosage is within the working range. It’s also standardized for the wrong compound. It’s EGCG you’re looking for, Alpha Lean 7 fat burner.
- Cissus Quadrangularis (5% Ketosteroids). Not a common ingredient, but studies about this African plant states several benefits for cardiovascular health, weight loss, blood sugar management, and even lower cholesterol levels.
- L-Carnitine. An amino acid that our body naturally produces. It pretty much forces stored fat into cells to be burned up for energy. It’s also one hell of a popular fat burner back in the early 2000’s, with virtually every beverage and fruit shake company finding ways to add this in their product line.
The dose is probably next to nothing given its hierarchy in the formula ladder. Not to mention l-carnitine is known to work in minimum doses of at least 250 mg.
- Rauwolfia vomitoria root extract std. 90% Alpha Yohimbine. Not exactly pure yohimbine or yohimbe bark, but it’s close. Yohimbine is known to be one of the fat burning world’s most controversial fat burning ingredients. It does help boost metabolism and overall fat burning (especially when combined with caffeine), but it also entails some temporary risks on cardiovascular health.
Alpha Lean 7 Review: formula analysis
Alpha Lean 7 fat burner is a stim-driven mess of ingredients that still probably works on fat burning. Seriously, the 675 mg dose over 10 ingredients was a bad start and it was further exacerbated by the fact that Alpha Lean 7 fat burner made use of dose-hungry ingredients. Pretty much, half the blend is either non-functional or working minimally. Yet I still think it works, especially (and much to my dismay) because it’s stim driven.
What I like:
I like how Alpha Lean 7 fat burner made use of popular fat burners in their formula. The likes of caffeine, green tea extract, yohimbine, and betaine are welcome additions for sure.
Their angle on burning fat without losing muscle isn’t as strong as some of its competitors, but at the very least I like how Alpha Lean 7 fat burner recognizes the need for consumers to not fear losing lean mass along with fat.
There’s also a “health supplement” angle to how Alpha Lean 7 fat burner was formulated. Some of its ingredients aren’t really fat burners per se, but more about supplements for overall cardiovascular health.
What I don’t like:
I really disliked the fact that they used a prop blend and decided to start the formula with a standard stimulant. This makes it too risky to even try double stacking or taking two caps at once. They recommend two caps a day, but we would never know if it was safe to take the two caps in one go.
Taking two caps could have possibly offset some of the questionably low doses of Alpha Lean 7 fat burner’s ingredients and potentially give this Alpha Lean 7 fat burner review a more positive tone.
Speaking of dosages, what can we expect from a 675 mg blend for fat burning? Not much. Even if the number of ingredients were cut in half, Alpha Lean 7 fat burner’s formula will still not be as potent as it claims to be.
Lastly, there’s also the issue with stuffing non-fat burning ingredients inside a formula that could have gone better without them and not prioritizing fat burning enough.
Alpha Lean 7 fat burner is just a glorified stim-nootro blend. I’m not even sure if it even works as a nootropic despite being fluffed with nootropic-functioning ingredients. The only thing that can work here is the stim, and even that’s a quality not worth mentioning.
What’s Missing from Alpha Lean 7?
What’s missing for Alpha Lean 7 fat burner is a better formula design. I can be okay with the prop blend if Alpha Lean 7 fat burner insisted on taking two caps instead of one per serving – adjusting the formula for two caps – and giving us twice the serving size.
So, does Alpha Lean 7 work?
As with many stim-driven burners, Alpha Lean 7 fat burner is effective at giving your body a huge boost in energy that should help stimulate your metabolism. There could be some nootropic benefit, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
Does Alpha Lean 7 have a lot of caffeine?
Gosh darn, I hope not. We don’t see the dosages, and to assume caffeine has at least 300 mg (which is a lot, by the way) is to cut almost half the serving size for one ingredient – an ultimately poor formula design.
So, is Alpha Lean 7 any good or just hype?
Alpha Lean 7 fat burner is more hype than anything. The serving size was the big red flag, but it all went tumbling down after we saw the quantity of ingredients and the prop blend.
Alpha Lean 7 Review: benefits for muscle
As I mentioned earlier, Alpha Lean 7 fat burner is stim-driven. This means it will get your body moving and feeling like it needs to lift heavy stuff for a period of time. This should help you get bigger gains, but that’s it. You might as well just drink coffee, really.
Who is Alpha Lean 7 made for?
Alpha Lean 7 fat burner was made for beginners in both weight lifting and supplement taking. Because I clearly don’t see gym vets and pros buying something that will make them play supplement detective.
Alpha Lean 7 Review: side effects
Tough to say what caffeine will do to you given the lack of dosage transparency. However, if it’s higher than my 250 mg limit, then you might get a bout of jitters and the crash. There’s also a possibility of feeling nauseated too.
Alpha Lean 7 Review: pros and cons
- Noob friendly. I’d like to think the dosage for each ingredient aren’t too strong.
- Traditional burn. Uses fat burners known to actually burn fat.
- Preserves muscle. At least it tries to.
- Just thought I’d appreciate the effort.
- Low doses. Mild stuff even for the new guys.
- Poor standardization. Not potent enough in the critical areas
- Too complicated. Simple formulas work so much better.
- 1 bottle (45-90 servings): $34.95
- Available online and in retail stores.
Alpha Lean 7 Review: summary
Here’s the thing with Alpha Lean 7 fat burner: It tried to host a party for all the popular people, but just didn’t have enough room for all the guests to mingle and have fun. Their complex blend suffered from a pretentious attempt at being an elite fat burner, stuffing all of those good ingredients inside a capsule that can probably only hold only half.
There’s a lot to be said about supplements that do this despite being in the industry for years, and none of it is good.
I don’t see Alpha Lean 7 fat burner being bought by anyone who has at least done some basic research (aka Googling) into what a fat burner should have. The most Alpha Lean 7 fat burner could hope for are people who forgot Google was free to use and desperate enough to try something for their weight problems.
At the price of $34.95, Alpha Lean 7 fat burner is expensive. Given the effects it could give you, you’d be better off drinking three shots espresso and hope for the best.
