GNC Total Lean Burn 60 ReviewGNC Total Lean Burn 60 is a dietary supplement from GNC that claims to be a “clinically proven thermogenic” that increases calorie burning by up to 60%. It also supposedly helps to enhance metabolism, boost energy levels and burn calories.

At the time that this GNC Total Lean Burn 60 review was created, the ingredients in the formula included: Guarana Seed Extract, Black Tea Leaves Extract, MegaNatural Grape Skin & Seed extract, Ginger Root Extract, MegaNatural Cold Grape Seed Extract, Dill Weed Extract.

The suggested use is to take 2 tablets 30-60 minutes before beginning exercise. On non-workout days take 2 tablets with water before breakfast. Users are cautioned not to take this product close to bedtime. Also, this supplement is meant to be used in combination with a healthy diet and exercise program.

The reason why users are cautioned not to take this diet pill too close to bedtime is that it contains guarana. More specifically, it contains 495 mg of guarana per 1 serving (2 tablets). Guarana has high concentrations of caffeine and can function as a stimulant, which means it may produce adverse stimulant effects, such as jitters, anxiety and disrupting sleep, among other unwanted side effects.

That being said, guarana has not undergone extensive study. Moreover, preliminary studies have not found this substance to be helpful for improving cognitive ability or mood. Moreover, even though it is commonly used to boost athletic or sexual performance, there is no evidence that it is beneficial for boosting either of these performances.

This lack of evidence brings to attention the claim that GNC has made that its Total Lean Burn 60 product is a clinically proven thermogenic formula. There is nothing clinically proven about this product. Yes, its ingredients have been scientifically studied, but simply because an ingredient is studied doesn’t make it proven.

The only weak evidence the manufacture shares to support its claims is that, in a study, a group of participants took GNC Total Lean Burn 60 before exercising on a treadmill on one occasion, while on a second occasion they took a placebo. The amount of calories reportedly burned during the first 60 minutes of post-exercise was measured and participants burned up to 60% more calories while on this blend compared to when they were on the placebo.

This single study is not enough to prove the efficacy or safety of GNC Total Lean Burn 60. It is highly recommended that your first speak with your healthcare provider before taking this product.

Cho Yung Plus is a nonprescription weight loss supplement that is called a “weight loss accelerator” on its official website. That said, further investigation into this product rapidly builds a number of doubts as to whether this product should be considered to be appropriate in any way.

The reason is that while the ingredients in this product are all clearly identified, it is also evident that their weight loss effects are mainly based on laxatives. This is an extremely unhealthy and potentially dangerous way to lose weight. It is highly recommended that anyone considering the use of this product first speak with a doctor . That said, it is more than likely that any reputable member of the medical community would only advise against the use of this product in favor of something much safer and more effective.

There are other red flags that rapidly raise when looking into who makes Cho Yung Plus and what it includes. For example, the official website labels the product as being “Proudly made in the United Kingdom”. However, the company that owns it is registered to an address that is located in Cyprus. Upon further investigation on Google Maps, this property appears to be an empty lot located in the middle of a residential area. Though this could imply that the map is simply out of date, it does cause a reviewer to wonder what that is all about.

Among the more positive aspects of the product is that its official website is brimming with information. Not only does it list all of its ingredients, but it also explains why they were each added to the formula. Although it does not provide any scientific or clinical evidence that these ingredients can actually do what the website claims that they will, at least it makes it easier for a dieter to understand what is being promised and why.

At the time of this review, the ingredients in Cho Yung Plus include: psyllium husk powder, bentonite clay, dandelion root extract, liquorice root extract, activated charcoal, citrus pectin, clove bud powder, fennel seed powder, garlic herb powder, ginger root extract, cayenne powder, chlorella powder, and aloe vera 200. The quantities of these ingredients are not listed, so it is unclear as to how much of each substance is provided with each dose. Taking this product according to the directions involves swallowing one capsule, three times per day with meals.
