Target Response Fat Incinerator & Adaptogen
SHRED-XS-HARDCORE™ is a super strength fat burning formula that combines powerful thermogenic ingredients for maximum energy, appetite suppression, mental clarity and fat burning with high potency adaptogenic herbs for comprehensive adrenal support. All stimulant fat burners exhaust the adrenal glands by causing a down regulation in adrenaline production through over stimulation called adrenal fatigue. Avoiding down regulation in adrenaline production is imperative to avoid elevated cortisol levels from the negative feedback loop. The lower adrenaline levels fall the higher cortisol levels rise.
SHRED-XS-HARDCORE™ is the only high stimulant fat burner on the market to provide ample support to the adrenals (2:1 ratio Adaptogenic/Stimulant) for incredible sustained energy production, mental clarity and focus and stabilized stress hormone levels. SHRED-XS-HARDCORE™ combines the powerful adaptogens Ashwagandha (4:1), Siberian Eleuthero (4:1), American Ginseng (4:1), potent adaptogenic Ginsenosides (80%) from Panax Ginseng with the building blocks of adrenaline, Pantothenic Acid and Vitamin C (as sodium ascorbate) to provide comprehensive support to the adrenal glands for healthy energy and lower cortisol and stress levels. The adrenals are taxed heavily everyday due to the intake of stimulants and the constant burden of our stressful lives. The continuous stress on our adrenals causes them to overwork thus down regulating and becoming sluggish. This adrenal down regulation adversely affects everything from hormones and energy levels to mood, sleep and mental clarity. SHRED-XS-HARDCORE™ provides potent adaptogens (compounds that help the body adapt to stress) to fight adrenal fatigue and bring balance and synergy to the SHRED-XS HARDCORE™ product. The Adrenaline-XS blend allows SHRED-XS-HARDCORE to stay active longer creating a sustained thermogenic effect combined with smooth all day energy without a crash.
If you’ve tried other fat burners only to have their effects fade rapidly leaving you tired and sluggish, then it’s time to try SHRED-XS-HARDCORE™!
Shred-XS-HARDCORE combines the power and energy accelerant CAFFEINE with PEA (phenylethylamine), Synephrine, Hordinine and Theobromine to create a powerfully stimulating thermogenic blend for maximum fat burning, energy, focus, appetite suppression and metabolic support.
PEA (Phenylethylamine) is a monoamine naturally derived from the cacao (cocoa) bean involved in elevating mood, focus, mental alertness, concentration, energy and an overall sense of well being. PEA enhances the transmission of dopamine and norepinephrine and acts as a stimulant to the AMPA receptor increasing the levels of acetylcholine in the brain. PEA has the ability to provide energy and clarity without building tolerance or making you crash.
Synephrine stimulates the beta-3 receptors with minimal impact on the other receptor sites, functioning to increase the metabolic rate like ephedrine (ephedra) without adversely affecting heart rate or blood pressure or building tolerance. Synephrine stimulates the release of adrenaline and noradrenaline only in the beta-3 receptor sites (mostly adipose tissue and the liver). Stimulation of the beta-3 receptor sites elicits the breakdown of fat. Synephrine is used to activate the adrenaline system without the stimulatory effect posed by ephedra-based products, so it is much safer on the adrenal glands than ephedrine.
Hordenine is a central nervous system stimulant that effectively elicits norepinephrine release. Norepinephrine is lipolytic, meaning it liberates/releases lipids from adipose tissue. As a result the released fats are burned for energy. Hordenine is believed to have a positive effect on realigning the body’s set point making it easier to lose weight and keep it off. Hordenine also helps with weight loss by slowing the digestion of food. This makes it easier to go longer between meals - lowering overall caloric intake, increasing satiety and eliminating food cravings.
Theobromine is the naturally occurring “feel good” alkaloid found most concentrated in the cocoa bean. Unlike caffeine, theobromine has three methyl groups instead of two (no it’s not liver toxic), and the presence of the third methyl group slows the rate in which theobromine is metabolized and cleared from the body making theobromine is a longer acting methylxanthine compound than caffeine. Although theobromine is related to caffeine and exerts similar effects, theobromine does not stimulate the central nervous system. It instead induces muscular relaxation of the smooth muscle tissue. The addition of Theobromine brings balance, long lasting smooth energy, clarity and relaxation to Shred-XS-HARDCORE.
Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) also known as Indian Winter Cherry and Ayurvedic Ginseng, is renowned and prized as a potent adaptogen. In the Indian Ayurvedic it is used in promoting rejuvenation, mental and physical health, as well as providing a defense against aging and challenging environmental factors. Ashwagandha has been shown to increase energy levels in as little as a week’s time. Ashwagandha root displays powerful antioxidant properties and has been shown to protect brain cells from oxidative damage caused by exposure to stressors. In one study, Ashwagandha reduced the number of neurons damaged due to oxidative stress by 80%. In a second placebo-controlled study, men and women given an extract of Ashwagandha root showed improved mental skills by performing better in reaction times, mental arithmetic and logical deductions. Ashwagandha is also a powerful supporter of the immune system increasing phagocyte activity aiding in destroying and removing toxic pathogens from the body.
Panax Ginseng (Asian Ginseng) has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine and is one of the most coveted adaptogens used today. Panax is prized for its Ginsenoside content which is responsible for its adaptogenic, immunological, nourishing stimulant, metabolic, aphrodisiac, stamina and anti-oxidant effects. Ginsenosides can be stimulating yet calming and are traditionally known as Yang (hot) producing. The Panax used in Shred-XS-Hardcore is standardized to a minimum of 80% ginsenosides for maximum potency and effect.
American Ginseng (Panax Quinquefolius) is a potent ginseng grown in North America and mostly shipped to Asia where it is revered as the powerful adaptogenic Yin (cold) counterpart to Panax ginseng. In traditional Chinese Medicine balance and harmony is always sought and hot must always be balanced by cold. American ginseng displays tremendous adaptogenic capabilities and is a cooling and welcome addition to Shred-XS-Hardcore.
Siberian Eleuthero (formerly Siberian Ginseng) is cooler and less stimulating than Panax ginseng but may be more adaptogenic and immune system supporting. Many athletes world wide use Eleuthero to enhance focus and stamina as well as aid in recovery from strenuous exercise. As with Ashwagandha and American Ginseng, Siberian Eleuthero was added for its ability to cool off and smooth out the effects of the stimulants allowing for longer lasting metabolic effects without building tolerance or accelerating adrenal fatigue.
Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B-5) has long been a favorite among athletes. Not only is it required for adrenaline production, it also plays a vital role in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, helping to supply the body with energy. It is a member of the B complex vitamin family and is called the Anti stress Vitamin' because of its role in relieving stress. Pantothenic acid along with Vitamin C and cholesterol is required for the normal adrenaline production and functioning of adrenal glands. Moreover this vitamin takes part in many chemical reactions in the body through which energy is released. Pantothenic acid also removes toxins from the body. There is no storage form for this vitamin. So it has to be provided through food or by vitamin supplements.
Vitamin C (as Sodium Ascorbate) is necessary for the synthesis of Adrenaline. Vitamin C is needed in the amino acid tyrosine metabolism which is a precursor of various hormones like adrenaline, dopamine and noradrenaline.
The adaptogenic content in SHRED-XS-HARDCORE works synergistically with the stimulants to maximize energy levels, metabolic support and fat burning without crashing or building tolerance like on all other stimulant based products.
Protection of our adrenal glands is paramount in maintaining proper metabolic, hormonal and mental stasis. Fatigued adrenals are why we are compelled to consume stimulants to begin with. The only way to avoid adrenal fatigue is to avoid stimulants and stress altogether, which might be easy for some. For everyone else there is SHRED-XS-HARDCORE!
For additional adrenal support SHRED-XS-HARDCORE may be stacked with Cordygen5 for extreme adaptogenic protection.
Directions: As an adult dietary supplement, take two to four capsules daily with food or beverage. Do not take late in the late afternoon as this may cause sleeplessness. Do not exceed six capsules in a 24 hour period. Use in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise program for optimal results. Shred-XS may be stacked with Kreaceps-XS, Cordygen5, Carnage, Citruvol or Caffeine Free Ragnarok.
Warning: Do not take if you are pregnant or nursing, have high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, hyperthyroidism, renal disease, or any other mental or physical condition. Do not take if you are currently taking any prescription, over the counter medication including ephedrine alkaloids or an MAOI. Consult your physician before taking. Discontinue use immediately and call a physician if you experience rapid heart beat, dizziness, nausea or any other related symptom. Do not use before strenuous activity in high temperature conditions. Do not take more than the recommended dose. Taking more than the recommended dose may cause serious health effects.

Q: What is the difference between the original Shred-XS and Shred-XS-Hardcore?
A: The original Shred-XS is a low stimulant product containing thermogenic, thyrogenic and adaptogenic ingredients. Shred-XS-Hardcore is a higher stimulant product with double the adaptogenic adrenal protection. The only ingredient that supports the thyroid in Shred-XS-Hardcore is Ashwagandha.
Q: Is Shred-XS-Hardcore safe?
A: Yes, Shred-XS-Hardcore is safe for men and women alike, especially when compared to the vast majority of high stimulant fat burners that are used daily without adrenal protection. Shred-XS-Hardcore incorporates a 2:1 ratio of adaptogens/stimulants to help protect against the effects of stimulants on the adrenals.
Q: Will Shred-XS make me jittery or over stimulated?
A: Possibly. Shred-XS-Hardcore is a higher stimulant thermogenic than the original Shred-XS. You may experience the jitters if you take it on an empty stomach. For most, the energy tends to be very smooth, clean and long lasting due to the adaptogenic content. If jitters or nervous energy become a problem reduce the dose or take it with food.
Q: Will Shred-XS-Hardcore make me crash after taking it?
A: You should not experience the normal “crash” associated with other products. The adaptogens provide support to the adrenals for a smoother let down that fades much slower than conventional stimulants.
Q: Will Shred-XS-Hardcore cause sleeplessness?
A: Yes, it can, but; It completely depends on the individual and how close to bedtime it’s taken. If it’s taken too close to bedtime then sleeplessness could occur. We advise allowing at least four hours between your last dose and bedtime.
Q: How long can I take Shred-XS-Hardcore?
A: Shred-XS-Hardcore can be taken for longer periods than the typical high stimulant thermogenic that doesn’t incorporate adrenal protection. You will find that you can take Shred-XS-Hardcore for extended periods and not build a tolerance to it. We advise discontinuing the product for 2-4 weeks after 8-12 weeks of consecutive use before resuming.
Q: How much weight will I lose with Shred-XS-Hardcore?
A: That completely depends on you and your lifestyle. There is no such thing as a magic weight loss bullet. We obviously recommend combining Shred-XS-Hardcore with a healthy diet and exercise program for best results.
Q: Can Shred-XS-Hardcore be stacked with other Millennium products?
A: Yes, Shred-XS is completely compatible with Kreaceps-XS, Citruvol, Cordygen5, Carnage and Caffeine Free Ragnarok. If you are planning on using the caffeinated version of Ragnarok with Shred-XS-Hardcore carefully assess your tolerance one capsule at a time. Since both products contain caffeine they should be used carefully together and doses should be separated by at least an hour to allow you to assess the effects of one product at a time.
Q: Can I use Shred-XS-Hardcore with other fat burners?
A: Yes as long as it is stimulant free. If you must stack it with another stimulant based product use caution and start one capsule at a time. We will be releasing a strong stimulant free Thyrogenic fat burner in the near future that will stack perfectly with Shred-XS-Hardcore.
