Which Fat Burners are Continually Voted the Best?

SST GlowSST Glow is a weight management capsule produced in Denver by Performix Inc.

The company says the product has been designed for women who want to “look, feel, and be their best” and it even contains a few ingredients to improve the look and quality of the skin.

It is designed in the same style as the other products and appeals to customers who are willing to spend a little more than the average on their supplements.

The main promised benefits are:

  • Ballistic Body Energy
  • Enhanced Mental Focus
  • Improved Fat Metabolism

What is Performix SST Glow and How Does it Work?

healthy skinPerformix say the capsules work in four stages. Each stage is called a “TERRA” phase and refers to the company’s “intelligent dosing technology.

This is a trademark protected system that allows each TERRA phase to be released in the most effective time.

TERRA phase 4 comprises the nucleus of ingredients at the center of the capsule and TERRA 1 consists of the ingredients housed in the capsule’s outer casing.

TERRA phases two and three involve the two layers that are dissolved and absorbed between them. Each stage is intended to offer a specific benefit.

  • TERRA 1 (Introduction Phase): Raises the metabolic rate to encourage thermogenesis. This is a process that causes the body to lose extra calories by converting them to heat.
  • TERRA 2 (Chill Phase): Users are promised a “chilling” effect that is apparently caused by peripheral heat transfer.
  • TERRA 3 (Sustain and Block Phase): Anti-adaptive nutrients trick the body into maintaining it elevated fat burning.
  • TERRA 4 (Transition Phase): A potent (1000mcg) dose of vitamin B12 is delivered to support “natural mental and physical energy production”.

Key Ingredients

Two capsules provide:

  • Vitamin D3 (2000 IU): A vitamin that is necessary for strong bones and teeth and provides many other health benefits.
  • Niacin (8.5mg): A B Vitamin that can lower cholesterol levels, is good for the skin, improves overall energy levels, and is sometimes used as a treatment for acne.
  • Vitamin B12 (850mcg): An important vitamin that has probably been added here because it has the ability to aid the metabolism of fats and protein.

The rest of the ingredients are included in two proprietary blends that have been combined to make the Performix Super Beauty Complex (1,203mg).

  • TERRA Pod Ballistic Energy Complex: caffeine anhydrous (170mg) Sensoril ashwagandha, Advantra Z, huperzine A, yohimbine HCI, mucuna puriens extract, black pepper
  • Lipo Beautifying Skin Complex: medium chain triglycerides, safflower, Lipowheat, conjugated linoleic acid, evening primrose oil.
Yohimbine Bark

Yohimbine bark

It’s hard to say exactly how effective each ingredient is likely to be because their individual inclusion rates have not been provided, except for caffeine.

Each serving of SST Glow will provide slightly less caffeine than two standard cups of coffee. Caffeine is a proven metabolism booster and fat burner. It is also a stimulant that can provide extra energy.

The other ingredients in the TERRA Pod Ballistic Energy Blend are stimulants as well (Synephrine, Yohimbine). Other ingredients are included to increase mental focus and cognitive function (Huperzine-A, Ashwagandha).

Black pepper increases the bioavailability of the stimulants it has been blended with, allowing them be absorbed faster and more efficiently.

Moving on to the Lipo Beautifying Skin Complex, lipowheat is reputed to be capable of nourishing the skin and ensuring it is adequately hydrated. The other inclusions are not without merit either, but again, we would need to know more information about dosages to comment with more confidence.

Usage Instructions – The normal dose is two capsules every morning, taken on an empty stomach, but new users are advised to take just one capsule per day so they can check for tolerance issues.

Customer Feedback

A few average customer reviews read:

“SST Glow is good for giving you extra energy, but it gives me a headache every time I use it. It has helped me to drop a few pounds though.”
“I can’t believe I was stupid enough to pay such much money for a product with no guarantee. I took the pills in the way you are told to do and put on weight instead of losing it.”
“Sometimes its worth paying a little more for a quality product and that’s what SST Glow is. After I take them I can feel the thermogenic ingredients working and the scales don’t lie…..IT WORKS!”
“I took these pills for a month and saw no results at all. This is disgraceful for such an expensive product.”

Note: with such variety between customer comments, it’s hard to use them as a guide. People may or may not be using the product correctly, or monitoring their diet alongside its use. We try to include them only as part of our overall research. Our recommendations at the end of the article tend to be from a more informed perspective.

Side Effects & Health Issues

DoctorPerformix says SST Glow is not suitable for women who are under 18 years of age or for anyone who is pregnant or nursing a child.

Women who have existing medical problems are also warned to stay away and Perfomix points out the capsules should not be used at the same time as alcohol or alongside other stimulants. After eight weeks of use supplementation must be stopped.

Yohimbine is probably the ingredient we are most wary of as it can have some unwanted side effects. Over-stimulation and anxiety are included. The dosage included does not impact most people in this way, even if it is unknown.

Purchasing Options & Considerations

It is not possible to buy SST Glow directly from the manufacturer, but a number of online stores stock the product and it is also available from Amazon, but it’s not a cheap product.

At the time of this review the Amazon price was $57.33, GNC were asking $109.99, and the price in the online store was $74.99. It is clearly “boutique” pricing for a high-end looking product.


SST Glow has no money back guarantee.

The Bottom Line

In theory SST Glow may provide the kind of results Performix claims it will, but the the level of stimulation may be strong for people unused to stims, or sensitive to them.

The price will also be an issue for some people, especially bearing in mind the fact the product is not backed by a guarantee.

Will it help women “look, feel, and be their best”? In some cases the answer may be yes, but the women who cannot tolerate the stimulants, or feel let down by the product and are unable to get their money back, will answer differently. Hence the mixed customer comments.

In our opinion, cost doesn’t reflect anything but itself. A product’s efficacy is what we are interested in. And Performix works for some of us and not others.

Again, it’s down to stimulant tolerance, specifically that of Yohimbine as it is known to cause some issues of anxiety in some young people.


PhenQ – One of the recommended products

Exact dosages are unknown so we can’t go into too much detail about the side effects of the ingredients in this product.

We recommend a few other products as alternatives for people living in countries where Performix is not really accessible/affordable and for those who just don’t like it.
