Often when brands have multiple products within the same category there’s a lot of confusion. Namely on what’s the difference and more importantly, what’s better. Such is the case with Innovative Lab’s trio of fat burners: Hellfire, Black Mamba, and Diablos ECA. In this post, we’re going to compare Hellfire VS Diablos ECA and Black Mamba and Diablos. But, if you’re interested in other comparisons, check out some of the other blogs below!
All of these products are fat burners from Innovative Labs that recognized for being strong stimulant and thermogenic based fat burners.
When you compare the labels between Hellfire and Diablos, there are three main variations you have to note. First, Diablos ECA Fire Caps contain 75mg more caffeine compared to Hellfire. This is roughly equivalent to an espresso. Total caffeine content in Diablos is 225mg to Hellfire’s 150mg.
Next, we have to address the ephedra, which is likely what drew you to Innovative Lab’s fat burners. Hellfire Fat Burner contains 100mg more ephedra compared to Diablos. Where Diablos has only 50mg, making it the least amount of ephedra compared to Hellfire and Black Mamba. Luckily, the average dosage range for ephedra is between 25-50mg and with the synergistic effect it has with other stimulants like caffeine, the 50mg is a nice sweet spot.
Finally, we have to go over the blends. Where Diablos has around 40mg more active ingredients in its blend compared to Hellfire (275mg compared to 235mg). Because these are proprietary blends, we don’t know how these mgs are deviated between the ingredients in the blend. However, we can see that there are more ingredients within the blend of Diablos compared to Hellfire.
Within the blend, there are 4 ingredients shared between these fat burners: Senegalia Berlandieri Extract, 2-Aminoisoheptane HCl (DMHA), Black Tea Extract, and Black Pepper Extract. Here, the Senegalia Berlandieri Extract and the DMHA are additional stimulants shared between the fat burners. The Black Tea Extract, however, may act as an appetite suppressant ingredient. Finally, the Black Pepper Extract is often used in dietary supplements as an aid for increasing bioavailability. Meaning, to increase how effective each ingredient is when digested. However, it may also act as a thermogenic.
Outside of the typical fat burner ingredient classifications we use, there are 2 ingredients in Diablos that aren’t very common; Tryptamine and Cissus Quadrangularis. Tryptamine is a metabolite of the amino acid L-tryptophan, which is a precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin. (16) By including this metabolite into Diablos, there may be additional support for mood boosting properties.
However, there would need to be more research in this area. Next we have the Cissus Quadrangularis, which is a herbal ingredient packed with antioxidants. It’s more common to see this ingredient in products related to joint health. Yet, there are some studies indicating that this ingredient may be beneficial in weight loss, weight management, and prevention of metabolic syndrome. (17)
Diablos VS Black Mamba: Ingredients
Likewise to our Hellfire comparison, when you review the labels between Black Mamba and Diablos, there are three main variations. Diablos ECA Fire Caps contains only 25mg more caffeine compared to Black Mamba. Total caffeine content in Diablos is 225mg to Black Mamba’s 200mg. Next, Black Mamba contains 15mg more ephedra compared to Diablos (65mg compared to 50mg). Finally, the blends. Diablos has around 15mg less active ingredients in its blend compared to Black Mamba (275mg compared to 290mg).
How Black Mamba VS Diablos Compare:
Between Black Mamba and Diablos, there are more shared ingredients within the blend: Senegalia Berlandieri Extract, 2-Aminoisoheptane HCl (DMHA), Yohimbe Extract, L-Phenylalanine, Naringen, and 6,7 Dihydroxybergamottin. What make’s Black Mamba different is the Synepherine HCl, Hordenine HCl, Evodiae Rutaecarpa, and Carallume Extract.
Synephrine HCl is like ephedrine. This stimulant is also a strong appetite suppressant. It works by acting like adrenaline when ingested. This helps increase metabolism and boost energy without increasing blood pressure.(19)
Hordenine is similar in chemical structure to Synephrine. Because of this, they work similarly. These enzymes work in your brain to degrade the amount of dopamine, serotonin, and PEA your body has. By inhibiting this, hordenine may lead to more overall dopamine within your system. Which may help to boost your mood. (20)
Evodiae Rutaecarpa Extract shares similar effects to capsaicin. This is due to its vanilloid receptor agonistic activities. Therefore Evodiae will aid in thermogenesis. (21) Finally, Carallume Extract comes from a cactus. Studies indicate it may help with weight loss with it’s appetite suppression effects. (22)
Overall, when you compare Hellfire Fat Burner to Diablos ECA Fire Caps or Black Mamba to Diablos, the products are matched pretty well. The main deciding factor on which fat burner you should go with is going to be on stimulants. If you really like ephedra, Hellfire may be the better option as it has more. But, the combination of more caffeine and potentially more stimulants from prop blend in Diablos, make it a great substitute to Hellfire.
But if you’re really looking for the appetite suppression and mood boosting effect, Black Mamba might be the better option. Yet, we would expect that Diablos may engage more of the thermogenic effects, like increasing sweat excretion during workouts, compared to Hellfire or Black Mamba. So if you were looking for a fat burner with a strong stimulant profile and thermogenic profile, Diablos may be the better fit.
However, keep in mind, individual experiences may vary. Now let’s check out some of the reviews!
- “The best with ‘ephedrin-like’ effect”
- “I love the all day energy this product provides!”
- “Great fat burning weight loss. Stripped up in 3 weeks 9kg”
- “Very good product. It is difficult to rate the effectiveness of a fat burner. I’m currently using this product in the final weeks of prep for a show. I will say I’m happy with the definition I have gotten. However, you must have your diet dialed in and already at fairly lean (you can see your abs) to see the true effectiveness. Hope this helps”
- “You feel the effects of this supplement the first time to use it. Great product at a unheard of price. Thank you same day Supplements!”
- “Yes this does increase energy and focus. Not sure on weight loss just yet. Does make me jittery after I have it in my system for an hour and lasts about 6-8. No other issues yet”
- “This fat burner is no joke. Plenty of energy. Mood boost and curbs your appetite. Dropping lbs every week.”
- “Holy smokes I ripped through my workout like never before and still felt stimulating effect 7 hours after I took one!”
- “If you’re not a fan of really sweaty workouts, this isn’t for you! I feel the heat, energy, and appetite suppression. Everything I want from a fat burner! I’m a very happy customer and even happier that with all this COVID-19 stuff, my order was shipped on the regular schedule and I didn’t experience any delays!! Thanks Same Day!”
