BeLive Fusion Burn ReviewBeLive Fusion Burn is a fat burner weight loss pill that claims to work with thermogenesis and provides an “all-in-one” product that dieters can rely on to help lose the pounds. It claims directly that its blend of ingredients is among the best natural fat burning substances for energy boosting, raising fat burning and improving focus.

Clearly, it’s up to the dieter to dig a little deeper as the official website for this product does not support any of its claims with reputable large studies published in industry journals. Without that type of evidence, the manufacturer is assuming that dieters will simply believe the claims it makes. This is a common tactic among manufacturers, making it difficult for dieters to be able to tell whether or not the claims are legitimate.

Therefore, it’s a good idea for anyone considering the use of BeLive Fusion Burn to start with a trip to the doctor’s office. Bring a list of the ingredients in the product and any claims made in order to discuss it with your doctor. That way, you can find out not only if the product is likely to work for you in the way you’re hoping, but you can also discover whether or not it is likely to be safe for you when taking into consideration any medical conditions you may have, or any medications or supplements you are taking or plan to take at the same time as this weight loss pill.

Next take a closer look at the ingredients in the product. At the time this BeLive Fusion Burn review was written, the official product package included the following on its ingredients list: chromium, black pepper fruit extract, caffeine, apple cider vinegar powder, garcinia cambogia.

This is an interesting list of ingredients as it doesn’t contain anything that isn’t quite commonplace in the over the counter diet supplement industry. Chromium is the top ingredient, but it’s good to know that it is considered to be unproven, at best, as a weight loss ingredient. The Mayo Clinic states that far more research is required before it could be considered helpful in helping to reduce body fat. Moreover, it is not believed to function as a fat burner. Instead, it is used in other products to regulate blood sugar levels in the hopes of helping to avoid food cravings. This is not listed among the claims of this product.

Next, the black pepper fruit extract is typically used not to help burn more fat, but instead to aid in the absorption of other ingredients. This could help to make sure you’re getting the most out of the other substances in the formula.

Caffeine is a stimulant which will help to boost energy levels and alertness. This can make it easier to exercise more regularly and remain alert to focus on a dieting strategy. Apple cider vinegar may help to improve digestion and it could even boost fat burning but studies have yet to show that this occurs to such a degree that it would lead to measurable fat loss on a scale. Garcinia cambogia may help to suppress the appetite, but studies remain preliminary and this ingredient is not yet considered to be a proven fat reducing substance.

Apidren PM ReviewApidren PM is a caffeine-free dietary supplement designed to help you continue your fat burning and weight loss efforts, even while you sleep. It is made in the USA and comes from a company called NutriPharm. The company also produces a product called Apidren, It is common for many users, who are seeking 24-hour fat burning and other weight management benefits to take both the Apidren and Apidren PM products.

Apidren PM is free of stimulants, so you can take it at nighttime without worrying about it affecting your sleep. Furthermore, in addition to being designed to aid in weight loss while you sleep, the products ingredients may also help you obtain a more restful slumber.

When this review of Apidren PM was written, it was composed of the following ingredients: Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Chromium, GABA, Irvingia Gabonensis, Magnolia Bark Extract, Pellodendron Amurense Bark Extract, Melatonin, LactoSpore.

The suggested use is to take 2 capsules with 8 – 12 ounces of water approximately 1 – 2 hours before bedtime. Users are cautioned not to drive or operate heavy machinery when taking Apidren PM.

Essentially, the mixture of herbs that make up the Apidren PM formula may help regulate blood sugar levels, burn fat, breakdown fat and help the body relax.

That being said, it is highly unlikely that you will experience measureable fat loss from taking Apidren PM. The reason is that no matter if it helps you burn or breakdown fat, the only way to shed pounds is by combining a healthy calorie-conscious diet with regular exercise. You’re not going to be burning tons of fat while you’re immobile and sleeping.

That being said, one way that Apidren PM may be able to benefit some people is by helping them to get a more restful sleep. If this product does manage to do this (keeping in mind that it has never been studied or proven to be effective in this way), it could be beneficial to your overall health and weight loss goals. The reason is that regular restful sleep can improve your health and benefit your weight loss goals by helping you maintain a high-functioning metabolism.

Prior to taking Apidren PM, it is strongly recommended that you first run your intentions to do so by your healthcare provider to make sure this is a safe option for you. This is especially important if you are pregnant, nursing, have a medical condition or are currently taking medication.

Bio-Trim is an over the counter diet pill that is made and sold by a large supplement manufacturer called Pharma Nord. That business produces many products within the weight loss and wellness categories and its claims about this specific product are that its users will find that they can lose weight with greater ease and efficiency.

The marketing for these weight loss supplements suggests that they are to be used by dieters to help them to overcome the challenges that they are facing in their efforts to reduce their body fat. Pharma Nord explained on its website that by taking these tablets on a daily basis, it improves the body’s ability to shed excess pounds in a faster and simpler way than is possible with diet and exercise alone.

This is the most common claim that exists in the nonprescription weight loss industry. While some companies have managed to put out products that are highly effective in living up to their promises, others provide little help or could even do more harm than good. Therefore, before blindly believing claims from any company about any product, it is highly recommended that a customer looks into a product with greater depth.

Following a consultation with a doctor, to ensure that this will actually be a safe step for you to take as a part of a complete healthful weight loss program, the next step is to look at the ingredients that make up the formula for Bio-Trim. According to the official Pharma Nord website, at the time of the writing of this review, the ingredients in this formulation were: co-enzyme Q10, garcinia cambogia, carnitine and chromium. This list was provided from among a very small amount of information offered on the official website.

Essentially the Pharma Nord website offers an image of the product package and a very brief paragraph about the product, as well as its ingredients list. This is not enough to answer all of the questions of a consumer who wishes to adequately inform him or herself for safety and effectiveness in weight loss.

This, combined with the fact that none of those ingredients have ever been directly linked with weight loss in any large and reputable published studies makes it difficult to want to choose Bio-Trim over a range of dozens of products in this category that provide a great deal more information to dieters and have proven ingredients.

Metabolife Ultra is a nonprescription diet supplement that has been designed to help dieters to reduce their weight by way of thermogenesis. It is one of several products in the Metabolife family of supplements that are produced under that brand name by its manufacturer, ISI Brand Company. That business is the owner of several different health and weight loss companies and brands.

According to ISI Brand Company, Metabolife Ultra will help a dieter by reducing his or her appetite while increasing his or her energy levels and the fat burning of the body. The fat burning is the result of a process called thermogenesis in which the body temperature is raised. This requires the body to use more fuel – that is, calories and fats – in order to generate heat, thereby burning through that fuel more quickly than would be possible at a lower body temperature.

While thermogenesis typically doesn’t do too much when it is simply the result of popping a pill, it can actually be made to be quite effective for fat burning when it is combined with cardio exercise. This can help to increase the rate of fat burning that the body achieves during those workouts. It is important to realize, though, that thermogenesis can come with certain risks, such as overheating more easily, and dehydration from the increased body temperature. Therefore, it is a very good idea to be especially vigilant about keeping hydrated and resting if symptoms of overheating are detected.

The ingredients that make up this formula are: calcium, chromium, HCA, potassium, SuperCitrimax, caffeine, and coenzyme Q10. These ingredients are seen quite commonly in the weight loss industry and, among them, only one has been proven: caffeine. Moreover, the only thing that caffeine has truly been proven to provide is an increase in energy levels and alertness. The rest are considered to be unproven in terms of their connection with weight loss.

For this reason, it is a very good idea to speak with a doctor before taking these pills. After all, even if they are effective despite the fact that they have not been proven by reputable science, some of these substances are known to conflict with certain common medical conditions, medications, and supplements. By consulting with a doctor, it is possible to know whether or not Metabolife Ultra will be safe for you to use, regardless of whether or not its benefits have been proven.

Xenamine is a nonprescription weight loss supplement that is manufactured by a small company that is known as InnerVital. The official website for this product refers to these diet pills as fat burners and says that they will burn fat more quickly than any other supplement on the market. It also allegedly provides appetite suppression and metabolism boosting, though at the time that this review was written, the official website didn’t cite any medical studies that would indicate that there is any scientific research to support those claims.

That said, just because a product hasn’t been researched as a whole, it doesn’t mean that it won’t work. Therefore, after consulting a doctor, it is recommended that anyone considering the use of this product actually look into the ingredients and the research that has been conducted on them either together or individually. It is best to look for studies that are conducted by independent and reputable organizations, such as universities, that have not received funding by companies that stand to gain by positive results.

At the time that this review was written, the ingredients in Xenamine, which were listed on the official website, included: chromium, caffeine anhydrous, and a proprietary blend of hoodia cactus powder, caralluma fimbriata extract, glucomannan, green tea extract, theobromine, guarana, cha de bugre, maca extract, L-theanine, banaba, pomegranate powder, and gugglesterone.

At first glance, it is easy to see that a great deal of the results that are produced by this product are based on stimulants. There are several stimulant ingredients in this formulation. This doesn’t necessarily mean that it isn’t a good product, but it could cause unwanted side effects in many dieters. Moreover, it should also be noted that several of the ingredients in this list are not at all scientifically proven but are successful at the moment exclusively due to media hype. This does not say much about the ability of the Xenamine company to select proper safe and effective weight loss supporting ingredients other than the interest of that business in making money from consumers who have not done their homework when looking into their diet pills.

Finally, it should be noted that with a list of ingredients as long as this one, even if the substances that were chosen were each shown to be effective by research – which many of these have not – there still may not be enough to actually produce the type of effect that is being promised. For example, this proprietary blend is made up of a total of 992mg. Since studies showing that green tea extract successfully for weight loss used 500mg, and as it is fourth ingredient on the list, it is mathematically impossible for the manufacturers to have used enough of that ingredient to match the type of results that were experienced in the reputable research.

Activ8 X Diet Drops are a type of over the counter diet supplement that come in the form of a liquid instead of the traditional pill form such as capsules and tablets. This product was developed by AMAS Enterprises Ltd. It is a part of a growing category of formulas that are a liquid to be used one drop at a time, as a part of a larger alternative sector of the market that provides an option outside of pills. This is appealing to individuals who struggle to be able to swallow pills.

The effects promised by the official website for this product include carbohydrate blocking, metabolism boosting, fat burning, and appetite suppression. This is quite the ambitious list for one formula to be able to achieve. It is important to look into the formula in order to decide whether or not it could be possible for dieters to be able to achieve these benefits through Activ8 X.

At the time that this review was written, the official website listed the ingredients in this product as being: chromium, grapefruit powder, grape seed extract, panax ginseng, pyruvate, garcinia, beta alanine, green tea leaf extract and capsicum.

The first thing that should be noted by this formula is that it contains a large number of ingredients. When a product has more than a handful of substances in its formulation, it is usually very helpful to know the quantities in which they have been included to know for certain that there will be enough of any of them to actually produce the desired benefits. Unfortunately, the official website did not provide that additional information.

It should be noted that while there are two known fat burners in this formula – green tea leaf extract and capsicum – they are extremely low on the list so it is unclear whether or not they will be powerful enough to offer measurable benefits. Moreover, it is also worrying that the rest of the ingredients on this list are completely unproven as they have not been researched in any large published study that would be acceptable by the medical community.

For this reason, it is very difficult to believe that Activ8 X drops will be able to live up to the considerable list of benefits that it has promised on its official website. Therefore, it is hard to think of a good reason to recommend this product over a range of other options within this market that have a much better reputation and more scientific proof in their track record.

Lipozin is a nonprescription fat burning diet pill. Its manufacturers claim that its customers have a 95 percent success rate through its use and that it is one of the most effective products in its category. It also claims to include clinically proven ingredients to help its users to reach their weight loss goals.

In an unidentified study that is mentioned on the official website, it states that over 60 days, its users lost 10.95 pounds while the placebo group lost just over 5 pounds. No reference on the website could be found at the time of this review with regards to who conducted the study, how it was conducted, how many people were involved, or whether or not it was published in a peer reviewed medical journal. The fact that these details were not provide suggests that it is a study that was conducted by the company itself, or in a manner that would not be considered to be “proof” by the medical community.

At the time of this review, the ingredients listed on the website for the Lipozin formula were: Vitamin B12, chromium, green tea leaf extract, guarana, caffeine, hoodia gordonii, and cha de bugre. Anyone who has any experience in diet pills can see two primary issues, right away. The first is that this product contains several ingredients that are stimulants, and the second is that it contains several substances that are not proven in terms of their effectiveness in promoting weight loss or even in their safe use by humans.

Several of these ingredients, such as hoodia gordonii, have received a lot of hype and media attention, but that is the closest that they have ever come to a large, trusted, scientific study that would indicate that a specific dose in pill form will help to provide any degree of measurable weight loss.

The stimulants in Lipozin – green tea leaf extract, guarana, and caffeine – mean that many dieters will experience side effects through the use of these pills. Though smaller doses of these ingredients, or individual doses of them, may be used without problems by many people, the fact that these ones are combined increases the risk that they could result in symptoms such as shakiness and jitters, headaches, anxiety and nervousness, sleep struggles, diarrhea, and other discomforts.

It is highly recommended that anyone considering the use of this product should speak with a doctor, first.

Drop Away Diet Drops are a type of weight loss supplement that is made in the form of a drop instead of a pill, to provide dieters with an alternative to tablets and capsules. This can be appealing to many people who struggle to be able to swallow pills, or who simply would prefer a different format.

That said, the most notable thing about Drop Away Diet Drops likely isn’t the fact that it is made in the form of a liquid instead of a pill – particularly as this type of option is becoming increasingly popular within this market. What is very interesting is that at the time of this review, there were a total of 22 ingredients that made up this formulation. This is considerably higher than the standard pill and is usually seen as an indicator that there is a decreased chance that the product will actually be effective. That said, just because these drops have a common warning sign against them, it doesn’t mean that they will not be effective or useful. It is important to look more closely at a product before making this type of assumption.

Typically speaking, one of the first steps to take – aside from consulting with a doctor – in terms of looking into weight loss products is to examine the ingredients and determine whether or not they have been scientifically proven to be both safe and effective. This could present quite a challenge when it comes to a product containing 22 ingredients. That said, the official website for Drop Away Diet Drops unfortunately does not provide a complete list of its ingredients. It lists only the first eight, and then simply says “and much more!”, so that the consumer would need to blindly trust the company and the fact that the remaining ingredients would not only be safe and effective, but that they would also not be something to which they could potentially be allergic.

The ingredients that are listed are: L-Carnitine, L-Ornithine, L-Arginine, L-Glutamine, Tyrosine,
Beta-alanine, Chromium, and Blue Green Algae (Aphanizomenon flosaquae). These are all ingredients that are commonly seen in the nonprescription weight loss industry, despite the fact that none of them have actually been proven to provide measurable weight loss in humans.

Moreover, as there is no complete ingredients list provided and the quantities of these first eight ingredients are not offered on the official website, it is impossible to know if there are any specific combinations that could be considered effective. As 22 ingredients are all meant to be dispensed in the form of liquid drops, even if all of these substances were effective, it would be unlikely that there would be enough in them to actually provide the desired results.

Beach Body Drops are a form of diet supplement that allows the dieter to be able to avoid trying to swallow a pill if it is something that is too difficult for them to do. Many people do have a hard time with capsules, gel caps, caplets, and tablets. For that reason, this product was designed in the form of a drop that can be taken as an alternative. According to its manufacturer, it offers metabolism boosting while it shrinks hunger levels at the same time.

At the time of this review, the official website for Beach Body Drops was calling up a temporary fatal error, so the information for this article was gleaned from the official Facebook page, as well as third party distributors that sell this product.

The official manufacturer claims that this is an American product that has recently made its way to the United Kingdom, as well. Its formula is made up of a massive 21 ingredients that they claim act together in order to produce very powerful effects that can lead to faster weight loss. They also claim that for the best benefits, three separate stages are required. The first is that the user must drink adequate amounts of water and adhere to a proper weight loss diet. The second is that regular workouts are required and that calories in (through food) and calories out (through exercise) should be tracked while doing so. The third step is to use a special calculation to be able to tell how many additional calories beyond the basic amount can be consumed as a result of the additional exercise that has been done.

The directions on the package also list how long Beach Body Drops need to be taken based on the amount of weight that is to be lost. For example, if the dieter wants to lose 15 pounds or under, then he or she will need to continue the use of the drops for 23 straight days.

The ingredients within this formula include: green tea, chromium, African mango, beta alanine, tyrosine, ginseng, and a full range of others. With 21 ingredients in the formula, it is difficult to believe that a few drops every day will produce any results at all. The reason is that it isn’t likely that there will be enough of any ingredient to be able to produce a meaningful response in the body that would lead to measurable weight loss.

Maxislim Day is a nonprescription diet pill that is designed to help dieters to be able to lose weight and achieve easier weight maintenance. Although the official webpage for the product on the manufacturer’s website never specifically says that it is formulated for women, the images on the bottle make it clear that the female market is their target group. That manufacturer, a company called Health Arena, also claims that this product’s formula helps to improve fat burning, suppresses the appetite, and boosts the metabolism.

This is a common claim, but whether or not it actually lives up to it will help to make it easier to understand whether this product is worth its low price.

It should be recognized that Maxislim Day is only one of a number of weight loss products produced and sold by Health Arena, and it is one of a line of different products being sold under the Maxislim brand name. The formula was recently created to remove 5-HTP and caffeine, which are both substances that have considerable scientific evidence to support their weight loss benefits, and replace them with citrus aurantium, acai berry and chili powder.

This could be considered to be a rather confusing move by the company considering that citrus aurantium is a substance that contains synephrine, and the FDA has released a warning cautioning consumers against the use of anything that contains that substance. The reason is that it has been linked to a number of strong side effects that could be uncomfortable for some dieters and that could be downright dangerous for people who have certain health conditions. Moreover the next ingredient that was brought in, acai berry, is known to be associated with some of the largest weight loss product scams in the history of the industry as there is absolutely nothing about that ingredient that has ever been scientifically or clinically linked to speeding up weight loss. That said, the chili powder does contain capsicum, which can help to produce a thermogenic reaction in the body and speed up fat burning provided that its use is combined with cardio exercise.

The rest of the active ingredients that make up Maxislim Day include L-tyrosine powder, green tea extract, conjugated linoleic acid powder (CLA), guarana seed extract, black pepper extract, vitamin B6, cayenne powder, and chromium.

It should be recognized that guarana seed extract is a powerful stimulant and green tea extract also contains a stimulant (caffeine). This, particularly combined with the citrus aurantium, could lead to some unwanted side effects such as trembling, nervousness, sleeplessness, nausea, and others.
