Hourglass – Fat Burning Supplement Review 2019
Last updated: 20th August 2019
If you’ve ever checked online for the best fat burners, you’ll probably have noticed that the vast majority of them are made for (and marketed towards) men.
If you’re a woman, you might find this a bit of a disappointment. But fear not, there are a few new products which have recently hit the market and are female focused fat burners.
One of the most popular that we could find is Hourglass. It has been specifically created to cater to women who are looking for an alternative to the male dominated far burner market. We think it’s a good move and well overdue!
Regardless of whether they’re made for men or women, what we really want to know is, do they work?
We’ve put Hourglass through our strict testing criteria to find out if it does the business.
What’s in it?
We’ve decoded the ingredients label to find out just what’s in this fem friendly fat burner. Take a look.
Vitamin B6 – This vitamin is present in many foods but found in a concentrated dose in Hourglass to give you more of it.
Capsimax – This extract is taken from chili peppers which are known to have some natural properties which could aid in burning fat.
Green Tea Extract – Green tea has been used for years as a herbal remedy and like pepper, is thought to have the ability to burn fat faster.
Guarana – This plant extract is thought to have a diuretic effect which

How to take it
All you need to do to take Hourglass is to consume one capsule per day with a meal of your choice. In order to get the very best results from this product (and any supplement) you should take it daily and consistently over a period of months. Make sure you are eating a good diet and getting plenty of exercise or it also will not work.
Who makes it?
Hourglass is made by manufacturer Propura Ltd who are based in the UK and USA. They make a range of supplements and all of their products are made to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) standards, meaning you get a clean and safe supplement.
- Good ingredient choice
- Not stimulant heavy
- Propura have a good industry pedigree
- Contains some stimulants
- Only available direct from the manufacture
We really like the idea of creating a specialist fat burner for women, and we were really interested to give Hourglass the road test.
We have to say we’ve been impressed with the construction and formulation of the product and will be taking it over the coming months to see what the results are.
While you can only buy it direct we don’t think this is necessarily a bad thing as it means the manufacture can keep a close eye on the quality of the product.
Overall we would recommend you try Hourglass if you’re in the market for a fat burner for women in 2019. While there aren’t that many to choose from, we think that Hourglass is close to being the leader of the pack.
We hope there are more female friendly fat burners released in the near future and if there are, you’ll find our review of them here first.
