What is GNC Burn 60?
According to the GNC website, “GNC Burn 60 is a clinically proven thermogenic formula that helps to enhance metabolism, burn calories and boost energy levels. With its powerful ingredients, Burn 60 enhances metabolism.”
What’s the Problem?
GNC Burn 60 contains guarana seed extract, which is an amphetamine-like stimulant that causes powerful stimulatory effects on the central nervous system (CNS), according to a study published in the medical journal PLOS One in April 2015. While guarana seed extract is generally considered safe for daily consumption in health adults, it may cause insomnia, complicate depression and be harmful for pregnant women. Individuals who have high blood pressure (hypertension) or a history of heart disease might also be more sensitive to stimulants, according to the International Food Information Council Foundation.
GNC 60 Side Effects

- Irregular heartbeats
- And more
When taken by mouth, the guarana in GNC Burn 60 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.”
