The goal of any fat-burning compound is to increase the rate of fat loss. This can be achieved by either increasing the overall Metabolic Rate, the amount of calories that come from fat relative to other sources, or to raise limits placed on fat cells in regards to releasing fatty acids. Some newer fat burning compounds can also work via uncoupling, which is the process of creating heat inside of a cell.

Other compounds that augment the above reactions can be classified as fat burners.

Fat burners typically act directly on the fat cell, as is the case with Yohimbine, or vicariously through some hormones like adrenaline (as is the case with Caffeine).

Caution Notice

Although not applicable to all, many fat burners increase levels of adrenaline in the body and should be approached with caution for those suffering from cardiac ailments or high blood pressure.

Many fat-burners are also neurologically active, and caution should be taken when one also uses neurologically active compounds like anti-depressants, be they prescription medication or supplemental.
