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.

W700 Thermogenic Hyper-Metabolizer is an over the counter supplement pill that is designed to provide assistance to dieters by increasing their body temperature so that more fats and calories are burned off as heat. That is a common strategy among many nonprescription diet pills, and is a process known as thermogenesis. This product is manufactured by a company called Ubervita.

Thermogenesis is a process that has seen some controversy in terms of use as a weight loss product, but the area in which it has been widely accepted is in promoting greater calorie burning when used in conjunction with cardio exercise. While measurable weight loss may not occur as a result of the use of thermogenic diet pills, on their own, they may help to enhance the results of a good workout, if it is completed with the use of the product on a regular basis.

In the case of W700 Thermogenic Hyper-Metabolizer, this diet pill has been marketed to two main groups of consumers. The first is people who want to lose fat so that they can reduce their weight overall (and who would like to improve their fitness level while they’re at it). The second is people who are already athletic and who want to be able to burn a higher amount of fat so that there will be less padding covering up their muscles. By reducing that layer, the outcome is better muscle definition as the existing muscles will no longer be hidden.

At the time that this review was written, these fat burners were being sold on the official website of the manufacturer. They were $29.95 for a bottle of sixty capsules, which provides a one month supply of the product.

That website also provided information with regards to the ingredients that make up the 468mg proprietary blend in the formula, as well as the directions for using the product.

On top of 2000 mcg of vitamin B6, the formula also includes the proprietary blend that is made of: caffeine, schizandra, L-arginine, beta alanine, guarana seed extract, uva ursi, capsicum, garcinia cambogia, raspberry ketones, green coffee, and tribulus.

This product is clearly made of a mix of studied and completely unproven substances. There are some known fat burners, some very powerful stimulants, recognized thermogenics, and diuretics. This means that while fat burning could result from the use of this product, there is also a risk of side effects for many dieters, and water loss that could place the user at risk of dehydration. It is important not to confuse the loss of excess fluids resulting from the use of this product, with burned away fat. The reason is that lost water will return once the body rehydrates.

The directions for this product say that it should be taken two times per day, with a full glass of water at meal time.

Due to the nature of this product, it is very important to speak with a doctor before using it.

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.

Zotrim is an over the counter diet supplement that is made up of a three ingredient formula that is designed to make weight loss faster and easier. These ingredients are all natural extracts, which the manufacturer markets as being a notable feature. There are a number of different claims made by the manufacturer regarding the types of effects that this product will have that will help with dieting.

The official Zotrim website lists a great deal of information to try to explain the ways in which it works, what it contains, and its purpose. The primary claims are that it is a metabolism booster, an appetite suppressant, and a fat burner. Essentially, it claims that a dieter will feel fuller faster and longer, while burning calories more effectively. To achieve this, the product would require an extremely powerful formula.

The ingredients that make up the Zotrim formula are: yerba mate, damiana leaf extract, and guarana seed extract. The first ingredient is extremely common in weight loss supplements. It is from a south American plant that is believed to have powerful antioxidant properties. Though some limited studies have shown that this substance can help in weight loss, many over the counter supplements that contain the ingredient fail to combine it with damiana leaf extract, which – according to the research – is required in order to produce positive weight loss results.

Unlike some of its competitors, Zotrim has actually included both yerba mate and damiana leaf extract in its formulation, which is quite promising. Together, they help to prevent fat cells from building up in the body. Therefore, while the dieter will still need to focus on exercising and reducing calorie intake every day, by taking this product – assuming that it contains the ingredients in adequate quantities – it has the potential to encourage faster fat burning.

Guarana see extract is also very popular in nonprescription weight loss supplements. It is also sometimes found in energy drinks because it is a very powerful stimulant. Though this can bring about a temporary increase in the metabolic rate which may be helpful when combined with cardio exercise, it also comes with the risk of a long list of different side effects, ranging from jitters and shakes to headaches, nausea, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, and others.

The official website for Zotrim is very open about the risk of side effects and makes recommendations regarding starting on a lower dose and building up as the body becomes accustomed to the effects. Although the risk of side effects is an unpleasant one, this is a notable and responsible effort by the manufacturer to ensure that its product reaches the right people.
