Xtreme Cuts 750 is a fat-burning supplement by ASN.
It aims to boost calorie burning and fat loss while dieting.
It’s based on the popular “ECA” stack (Ephedrine, Caffeine, Aspririn), and has substituted some of the ingredients to make it legal in Australia and New Zealand.

Bitter Orange is a citrus fruit that contains a compound called Synephrine.
It is used to suppress appetite and improve weight loss.
Studies have shown that Bitter Orange supplementation increases metabolic rate, burning more calories even in sedentary people (1).
Synephrine is commonly used as a replacement for Ephedrine, which is similar in structure but highly regulated in Australia and New Zealand.
Caffeine is a stimulant that also increases metabolic rate (2).
The dose for fat-burning effects is about 200mg.
Guarana is a second source of Caffeine. It also has some antioxidant effects.
Tyrosine is an amino acid that can improve mood and brain function while under stress (3).
An effective dose is 500-2,000mg.
White Willow Bark Extract
White Willow is a tree whose bark is commonly used for pain relief. It works in a similar way to aspirin (4).

It also has a small dose of Tyrosine in it to keep stress levels down throughout the day.
