Skald Fat Burner Review Overview
Skald Oxydynamic Fat Burner is an extremely popular weight loss supplement, but we do not know why it is still so popular. Skald contains some useless, unproven, ineffective ingredients. It is almost completely reliant on a large dose of caffeine anhydrous coupled with some synephrine to deliver the feeling of results for its users. This isn’t going to help you lose fat any more than a strong cup of coffee will, but Skald is much more likely to cause side effects than coffee! Skald is also hugely overpriced. Better fat burners are on the market right now, no doubt about it.
What is Skald Fat Burner?
Skald Fat Burner, or Skald Oxydynamic Fat Scorcher to give it its proper name, is a popular fat burner from BELDT Labs. Skald has been on the market for a good few years now, but it hasn’t become any less popular in that time.
According to the Beldt Skald website, this fat burner delivers the following benefits:
- Astounding Energy & Fat Loss
- Respiratory Support
- Elevated Mood
- Appetite Control
These are some big claims, but they aren’t any different to what the best fat burners on the market currently claim to offer too.
The question is, does Skald Fat Burner really work? Is it safe, or will it cause side effects? Is Skald the best fat burner on the market right now? Read our full Skald Fat Burner review below to find out.

As you can see, Skald Fat Burner doesn’t show the dosage for each ingredient on the label. We are only told the dosage for caffeine anhydrous. This is a big problem; it means we can’t properly gauge effectiveness or side effects. More on this later!
We will now go through each Skald Fat Burner ingredient one by one, explaining what it does, how it is supposed to work, and what the scientific literature has to say. We will then talk about our experiences with Skald Oxydynamic Fat Burner.
Caffeine Anhydrous – 110mg
Caffeine is probably the single most powerful stimulant that most people ever use, and they use it frequently. Caffeine is a great fat burner ingredient. Caffeine decreases fatigue, suppresses appetite, boost stamina, and elevates mood – all things which help enormously on a diet.
Skald Fat Burner contains 110mg of caffeine anhydrous, which is a slightly more potent form of caffeine than standard caffeine (it has been dehydrated making it more powerful by weight). This is a lot to take in a single serving, but it will undoubtedly increase energy levels, decrease appaetite, and help you get through a workout or busy day on fewer calories.
N-Acetyl-Tyrosine – DOSE UNKNOWN
Tyrosine is an amino acid, and a precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine. It is usually taken to promote focus, memory and motivation. Some people have suggested that Tyrosine may boost metabolism and energy levels by manipulating thyroid hormone levels. Not only is this something you WOULD NOT WANT TO DO under any circumstances, but there is no evidence that Tyrosine has this effect. In any case, we have no idea how much we get from Skald Oxydynamic Fat Burner, but it is unlikely to be an effective dose!
Green Tea Leaf Extract – DOSE UNKNOWN
Green tea leaf extract is a common fat burner ingredient, so it’s no surprise to see it listed as a Skald Fat Bunrer ingredient. Green tea is a rich source of a catechin called EGCG which has been found to have potent fat burning properties. EGCG may stimulate lipolysis independently of exercise, which is pretty amazing. Unfortunately, we don’t know how much EGCG we get in Skald’s extract, nor how much green tea extract we get in a serving. If it’s less than about 300mg, there’s no point taking any!
Bitter Orange Fruit Extract – DOSE UNKNOWN
Bitter Orange Fruit Extract, often also listed as Citrus Aurantium Extract or simply as the active ingredient, synephrine, is another common fat burner ingredient. However, there is no good clinical evidence that synephrine works as advertised. It is said to be structurally similar to ephedrine, but structural similarity does not mean two substances have similar effects (think water and bleach). Worse still, synephrine may cause serious side effects, especially when taken with caffeine.
White Willow Bark Extract – DOSE UNKNOWN
We have no idea why Skald Fat Burner uses White Willow Bark Extract as an ingredient. White willow bark is the natural source of salicylic acid, the active ingredient in aspirin. Depending on the dose and salicylic acid content, white willow bark extract may in theory increase blood flow. Sadly, there’s no evidence that it actually does so. There is certainly no evidence that it is effective for promoting fat loss.
Skald Fat Burner’s manufacturer claims that increased blood flow directly leads to greater fat loss. As far as we can tell there is no scientific evidence to support this claim.
Verbascum thapsus Leaf Powder – DOSE UNKNOWN
Verbascum thapsus has been variously used to treat pulmonary problems, inflammatory diseases, asthma, spasmodic coughs, diarrhoea and migraine headaches. But like most “traditional medicines” or “homeopathic cures”, there is not a shred of evidence to show that Verbascum thapsus actually does these things. There is definitely no proof that it promotes fat loss; it doesn’t even seem to be linked to fat loss by “traditional medicine”. Another total dud of an ingredient in Skald Fat Burner!
Theobromine – DOSE UNKNOWN
Theobromine is a naturally occurring compound; it is found in large quantities in the cocoa plant, as well as in tea, coffee, mate and cola nut in lesser quantities. Theorbomine is a far milder stimulant than caffeine. While this may be a benefit, we don’t understand why you would stack theobromine with caffeine – unless you were trying to cut costs that is!
Theobromine has similar effects to caffeine, but requires a larger dose since it is much weaker. The Skald Fat Burner formula is only 341mg, and 110mg of that is caffeine. So why include Theobromine at all?!
Elecampane Root Powder – DOSE UNKNOWN
Like Verbascum thapsus, Elecampane Root has long been used in traditional medicine. This native European herb has been used to treat coughs associated with bronchitis, asthma, and whooping cough in infants. Like most “traditional medicines”, it is said to be effective for pretty much everything. And like most “traditional medicines”, there is no evidence that it actually works for any of these illnesses. And again, there is NO SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE that this Skald Fat Burner ingredient helps with weight loss, appetite, or energy levels.
Bioperine Black Pepper Extract – DOSE UNKNOWN
Bioperine is a natural compound found in black pepper. It aids with digestion and increases nutrient absorption. This is a very important ingredient for most supplements, but for fat burners like Skald Oxydynamic Fat Burner in particular. When dieting, it is important that you get as much nutrients from your food as possible. But again, the lack of dosing information is a problem. How much Bioperine is in Skald Fat Burner? If it’s less than 5mg, then it is another wasted ingredient unlikely to provide any benefits.
Skald Fat Burner Formula Review
Does Skald Oxydynamic Fat Burner really work?
Looking at the ingredients and doses listed on the label, we highly doubt it.
For starters, we have a proprietary blend to deal with – and a tiny one at that! Skald hides most of the ingredient doses, which means we have no idea how much we get per serving. But since the whole formula is only 341mg, and 110mg is taken up with caffeine, we know that no ingredient is going to be dosed generously.
The Skald Fat Burner formula is almost completely reliant on caffeine anhydrous to work. The other ingredients are either completely useless, totally unproven to work, or dosed far too low to have any effects.
Ingredients like Verbascum thapsus or Elecampane Root have no links to fat loss or weight management whatsoever, let alone hard scientific proof of efficacy.
The green tea lead extract and Tyrosine may offer some support, but their doses are undoubtedly too small given the 341mg proprietary blend size.
Overall, Skald Oxydynamic Fat Burner has a hugly disappointing formula, with garbage ingredients and low doses across the board. The combination of caffeine with other sitmulants makes side effects likely too. We think you should stear clear of this crap!
Skald Fat Burner Reviews & Complaints
Before buying a fat burner like Skald Oxydynamic Fat Burner, it’s worth looking at reviews from customers who have also used the product to see what they have to say.
While reviews of Skald Fat Burner may be biased, misleading or downright dishonest, if we look at enough positive and negative reviews then we can get a good picture of whether the priduct is legit or a scam.
Here are some Skald Oxydynamic Fat Scorcher reviews taken from various places online:
As we have already mentioned, it’s important to look at professional Skald Fat Burner reviews as well as user reviews and complaints to get the full picture.
Skald Fat Burner Side Effects
Does Skald Oxydynamic Fat Scorcher cause side effects?
After looking at the ingredients in Skald Fat Burner, we think it is highly likely that users will experience side effects.
Skald Oxydynamic Fat Scorcher is like to cause a range of side effects, including:
- Shortness of breath
- Elevated heart rate
- Mood swings
Obviously, these side effects largely come from the large dose of caffeine anhydrous we get in each serving of Skald Fat Burner. The 110mg of caffeine anhydrous in Skald Fat Burner is a lot, particularly as caffeine anhydrous is more powerful than regular caffeine by weight. Add in the unknown quantities of other sitmulants – theobromine, synephrine and green tea extract – and we have a lot of stimulants per serving.
Some of the ingredients in Skald Oxydynamic Fat Scorcher have also not been thoroughly tested in humans. We don’t know how these ingredients are dosed, making adverse side effects even more of a concern.
How long should I take Skald?
While some people recommend taking Skald for as long as 8-12 weeks, we don’t think it is safe to take Skald every day for any longer than about 14 days. If taking this product long-term, we strongly suggest you cycle off of Skald for at least 2 weeks after every 6-weeks of continuous use.
The 110mg of caffeine anhydrous coupled with synephrine which you get from Skald is not safe to take every day for prolonged periods. We highly recommend cutting right back on caffeine consumption if you insist on using Skald daily for more than a few days.
Where can I buy Skald Fat Burner pills?
You can buy Skald Fat Burner pills from a number of different places. In the past, you could purchase Skald Oxydynamic Fat Scorcher directly from the manufacturer, Beldt Labs. However, the Beldt Skald page appears to be forbidden to us right now, so they may no longer be selling the fat burner through their site.
You can also buy Skald through Amazon. BLEDT Labs runs its own Amazon store, so be sure to buy through them and not a third party if buying Skald online.
There are lots of third party sellers out there on sites like eBay. But these are often either jacking up the price above retail or selling damaged or phony products.
You cannot buy Skald at Walmart, GNC, or brick and mortar supplement stores.
Whenever possible, we recommend always buying fat burners directly from the manufacturer. This protects you from scams, price jacking or damaged product.
Skald Review Conclusion: Does it really work?
Is Skald a good fat burner?
After doing a detailed review of Skald’s ingredients, doses and side effects, we really don’t think so.
Skald is a proprietary blend full of ingredients that are either totally unproven, completely ineffective, or dosed too low to have any real benefits.
Almost all of the benefits of Skald you might experience will be down to the large dose of caffeine anhydrous. While this will not doubt help people lose weight and stay energized in the gym, it comes with serious side effect risks. This is especially true given the extra stimulants in Skald Fat Burner.
There’s no appetite suppressants in Skald, and nothing to help control blood sugar.
Simply put, there are far better fat burners out there right now than Skald Oxydynamic Fat Scorcher from Beldt Labs.
If you are looking for a natural supplement to help you get more from your next cut, we recommend staying away from scam diet pills like Skald and using professional, high-spec fat burners instead.
