Plexus BioCleanse is a nonprescription weight loss product. It was designed to help people who are battling with uncomfortable bloating as a result of a busy lifestyle that doesn’t include adequate fiber and exercise. The official description for this product specifically underscores the fact that it contains magnesium among its ingredients. This nutrient is known to be beneficial to the digestive system.

The official website for this product claims that it provides a long list of benefits. Among them are the cleansing of the gastro-intestinal tract, assisting in boosting physical energy levels, providing antioxidant support through added vitamin C, and offering relief for occasional constipation which is not in the form of chronic constipation. This product is both vegetarian-friendly and gluten free.

The formula is made of vitamin C, magnesium, sodium, a bioflavonoid complex (which contains orange peel, lemon peel and whole quince fruit. As a whole, this product essentially acts as a laxative and does not contain any ingredients that have been directly connected with actual fat loss on the body.

To use this product, the package directions recommend that users take two Plexus BioCleanse capsules along with 8 ounces of water. This should be done twice per day. The capsules should be taken between meals, not with them.

Despite the fact that this product is sold in the weight loss category, it is unlikely to cause anything but very temporary weight loss. This is because the weight that it helps to reduce is not in the form of body fat. Instead, it helps to relieve the added weight and size caused by bloating and constipation. Therefore, while fat is not being burned away, it does help to decrease the presence of gas, retained water and a buildup of waste in the digestive system.

This type of product should be used with great care. For one thing, laxatives may not be appropriate for people who suffer from chronic constipation – which the product does mention in its description. Therefore, it’s important to know the cause of your constipation before taking an over the counter product to correct it.

Moreover, using laxatives in this way can cause the body to reduce its ability to effectively produce bowel movements on its own. This can mean that a user may build an increasing need to rely on laxatives in order to avoid constipation.

It is highly recommended that a doctor be consulted before beginning the use of Plexus BioCleanse.

Matrix Night Shredder review

Matrix Night Shredder is a weight loss supplement that has been designed to help to boost the rest that you receive while you sleep and to give your body an added advantage so that it will burn a larger amount of fat during the time that you’re unconscious at night. According to the webpage for this product on the official website, the ingredients in this formula have been designed to promote rapid fat burning without including any stimulants. This makes it possible to comfortably take this product at nighttime without risking sleeplessness, as is often a side effect of stimulant based diet pills.

The non-stimulant fat burners are combined with sleep promoting substances so that Matrix Night Shredder can be used not only to lose weight but also to get a better night of sleep.

At the time of the writing of this review, the ingredients identified on the official webpage included: the Nocturnal Fat Attack Complex – (Raspberry Ketone, L-Carnitine, Irvingia Gabonensis and CLA), as well as the Rest & Recoup Matrix – (Magnesium, Theanine and 5-HTP), and non-active ingredients, which are Microcrystalline Cellulose, Calcium (DC), Magnesium Stearate and Silicon Dioxide.

These ingredients are not uncommon in the diet pill industry, but the manufacturer is accurate in saying that they do not contain stimulants. At the same time, the vast majority of these ingredients are considered to be unproven by the medical community when it comes to a direct relationship between their use in supplements and the ability to lose weight.

Furthermore, the inclusion of raspberry ketone and irvingia gabonensis suggests that some of the substances in this formula were chosen more because of media hype and the fact that they were once featured on the Dr. Oz show and less for any actual solid scientific evidence that would suggest that they can be safely and effectively used for weight loss purposes.

Still, among the 42 customer reviews currently posted on the official webpage on the manufacturer’s site, the average rating is a very high 93 percent (nearly five out of five stars), which is considerably higher than the rating that has been received by a number of other Matrix products on its own website. This is worth noting as it appears as though many customers are receiving positive benefits in terms of effectiveness and value, regardless of the fact that there isn’t a large body of scientific evidence to support its use for this purpose.

Prescopodene is an over the counter weight loss supplement pill that has been designed to assist dieters in their effort to drop their excess pounds more easily and rapidly than would be possible with diet and exercise alone. The official website lists three different company names behind this product. These are Drop Down Ltd, Fittiny Health Ltd. and JC Arnica Corp.

When looking into those companies, JC Arnica Corp is a business based in Panama that has locations in the United States, New Zealand, Australia, Panama, Philippines, Canada, Romania, and the United Kingdom. This was the only company among the three for which an official website could be found. The Prescopodene diet pill is listed among the products it produces, on that official website, as well as on the pill’s own official website.

Fittiny Health Ltd. is a company based in the United Kingdom. It was first registered on February 8, 2013. Drop Down Ltd. is also registered in the United Kingdom and was created on the same day as Fittiny Health, though their addresses are entirely different. Both Fittiny Health and Drop Down are currently registered as active but dormant.

Therefore, the information for this review was gleaned from the official Prescopodene website, as well as the official website of JC Arnica Corp. Typically, after speaking with a doctor, the first step in reviewing a diet pill is to look into its ingredients. What was interesting about this process in the case of Prescopodene is that the ingredients are listed differently on the official pill website and the official manufacturer’s website.

The pill’s website lists the ingredients as being: green tea, grape seed extract, vitamin C and B6, quercetin, magnesium, L-tyrosine, hordenine, octopamine, tyramine, ginger root, and pantothenic acid.

On the other hand, the manufacturer’s website lists the ingredients as: green tea extract, DMAE, tyrosine, pyridoxine HCP, yerba mate, vitamin C, magnesium, pantothenic acid, ginger root, grape seed extract, cocoa extract, and Avantra Z.

Oddly, neither one of those lists is all that impressive, as there is only one ingredient on both lists – the green tea – that has any substantial scientific or medical evidence to suggest that it will produce the outcomes that it promises. That said, the list on the pill’s site is favorable to that of the manufacturer’s site, if only because it does not contain Avantra Z, which is made from bitter orange (citrus aurantium). That substance contains synephrine, against which the FDA has released a consumer safety warning.

It is notable that the official website of the manufacturer said that this product was created with “extensive testing and landmark clinical trials,” but it did not provide any of the details of that research.

Lipo 13 is an over the counter supplement that has been designed to help dieters to be able to achieve faster and easier weight loss. It is manufactured by Ecopharma, which is a company that is headquartered in Belgium. Originally, this product was sold under the label “Lipo XR”, but Ecopharma has now changed the name of these diet pills, and the ingredients have been slightly changed within the formula from what they had been under the old brand name.

According to the manufacturer, each of the ingredients within the formula for Lipo 13 has been clinically tested. That said, while it did say that testing occurred, it did not actually reveal the results of those tests on the website. This leaves the visitor to assume that the results were positive in terms of effectiveness and safety, though it never specifically says this. This could be a matter of either sloppy or careful wording on the website, neither of which reflects very well on the product.

This impression is made worse by the fact that Lipo XR had been sold with a 14 day money back guarantee. This may be a very short guarantee, but at least it was there. At the time of this review, no mention of that guarantee could be found on the official website.

To gain a better understanding of Lipo 13, it is a good idea to examine the formula for this product, which claims to be clinically tested. The ingredients listed on the official website at the time of this review are: citrin HCA, green tea, forslean, guarana, yerba mate, bioperine, L-carnitine, choline bitartrate, magnesium, L-tyrosine, zinc, vitamin B6, and chromium.

This list makes it very clear that while these ingredients may have been clinically tested, they are not proven and that the wording on the website was strategic and not careless. This problem could be identified with the chromium, alone. The Mayo Clinic, a highly reputable medical organization, has included chromium among the ingredients that it has labeled inadequately studied when it comes to the claims being made for use in a diet pill.

Moreover, it is clear that this formula is highly based on powerful stimulants. The citrin HCA, green tea, guarana, and yerba mate are examples of powerful stimulants on their own, but even more powerful when combined. This may seem appealing because stimulants are known for helping to reduce the appetite and boost energy levels and fat burning, except that when they are combined to a very powerful degree, then any benefits may be negated by the risk of unwanted and unpleasant side effects such as sleeplessness, jitters, anxiety, headaches, and more.
