Creative Bioscience Raspberry Ketone Plus reviews

Creative Bioscience Raspberry Ketone Plus is yet another nonprescription weight loss supplement to have been created based on this very popular ingredient. Regardless of the fact that it has not yet been scientifically proven to have any direct link between its use and significant amounts of weight loss, many dieters have been rushing to get their hands on it after Dr. Oz brought it up on his television show.

The fact that Dr. Oz has since faced a U.S. Federal Senate Committee as a result of the unproven claims he has been making on this television show has not stopped people from wanting to buy it. In fact, many people still want it even though Dr. Oz has admitted that his recommendations of many ingredients he has called “miracles” despite a complete lack of evidence to support those statements.

It appears as though Creative Bioscience Raspberry Ketone Plus has been benefiting from that trend as it has been around for several years. What is interesting about the language of the text on the official webpage for the two raspberry ketone-based products sold by Creative Bioscience is that they say that “raspberry ketones have been researched and shown to help you lose weight.” That said, they have not cited any studies to provide proof for this statement. After searching through medical journal databases, no reputable research that would support this statement could be found.

There were some very early and preliminary studies conducted that have suggested that the ingredient warrants further study, but it is far from proven and it is not being recommended by the medical community as it is far too early to know whether or not it is consistently effective, how much should be used for the best results or even whether or not it can lead to side effects or health risks if used at certain doses or for too long.

This is not to say that raspberry ketones don’t help with weight loss. It is simply that the science and medical communities don’t know the answer and yet Creative Bioscience has taken it upon themselves to imply that they do. In fact, it makes reference to a number of different types of “tests” – still without providing any references or citing studies – that are supposed to indicate that using this substance reduces fat around the organs. It isn’t even clear if they are referring to studies performed on humans or whether they are mouse or rat “tests.”

This product is meant to provide dieters with the raspberry ketones diet pill option that is stimulant-free. This is because its main weight loss pill based on this ingredient contains stimulants in order to also provide dieters with a boost of energy and enhanced fat burning.

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.

Avaprex is an As Seen on TV weight loss supplement that is marketed as being an alternative to prescription weight loss medications such as Adipex and Phentermine. The official website that was created specifically for these pills claims a number of different benefits from which dieters are supposed to be able to benefit.

The site makes it very clear right at the start that while these are meant to be highly effective diet pills, Avaprex is not a product that is safe and appropriate for all dieters. For example, it points out that it is meant only for adults who are aged 18 years old or older, and it is not considered to be safe to use for pregnant women or mothers who are breastfeeding their babies.

For the first few months that the product existed, the creators of the official website went to the extent of listening not only the names of all the ingredients that are included in this product, but also included the quantities of each substance when taking in the recommended servings of 2 capsules at a time. At the time this review was written, however, it had designated its formula as proprietary and listed the quantities of only some of its ingredients, instead of all of them. One dose of two capsules contained: 300 mg of raspberry ketone, 200 mg of green tea, 100 mg of caffeine anhydrous, and a proprietary blend of 600 mg containing apple cider vinegar, grapefruit, kelp, acai fruit, African mango, and resveratrol extract.

While the site has gone to the effort of providing this information, which does make it easier for dieters to be able to decide whether or not these ingredients are safe and appropriate for their dieting expectations and health needs, the down side is that the majority of those ingredients are unproven, at best.

Of that entire list of ingredients, only caffeine anhydrous and green tea have a certain body of scientific and clinical evidence to support their use as a part of a diet pill. The rest of the ingredients are considered to be entirely unproven, unlikely to be beneficial, or have only preliminary research to support claims made about their weight loss benefits.

For this reason, it would be challenging to be able to recommend Avaprex over other products on the market that are supported by a more substantial body of research published in peer reviewed medical journals.

Sliminex Green Coffee is an over the counter diet supplement that was once called simply “Sliminex”, but is has recently completed an overhaul of its formula and, clearly, its name. This is a product that is sold primarily on its own website and, to a lesser extent, on some smaller supplement websites. There are very few third party sites that offer these supplements.

The official website does provide a limited description of Sliminex Green Coffee, but it is clearly geared toward selling the product and not as much toward informing the user. There aren’t any studies cited that would indicate that the formula, as a whole, has ever been tested, and the research conducted by the creators of the product wasn’t identified, making it difficult to know whether the claims made about the ingredients are based on medical science or whether they are simply promises made by a company that is hoping to sell a product.

The promises with regards to Sliminex Green Coffee state that taking this pill will give a user’s body the “boost it needs for peak performance.” It identifies benefits such as increased body and lean muscle mass, as well as higher energy levels and improved cardiovascular health maintenance, on top of a reduction in body fat as the ways that this “boost” will be provided.

Overall, this means that this product would fall into the vast category of weight loss pills in the fat burner and metabolism booster categories. There are hundreds, if not thousands of pills that make similar types of claims. While some of them can be exceptionally helpful to dieters – particularly those that are following a reduced calorie and increased activity level strategy – others aren’t nearly as good as they claim to be.

For that reason, it is a good idea to understand the ingredients contained within a product such as this, before simply believing the manufacturer’s promises. It is also a very good idea to speak with a licensed physician about the use of this product and whether or not it is safe and appropriate for you.

At the time that this review was written, the ingredients that were listed in this product formula were: satiereal saffron extract, green coffee bean extract, trimethylxanthine, garcinia cambogia, raspberry ketone, green tea extract, konjac root, and L-carnitine. This makes it clear that this formula is based primarily on the effects of stimulants, and ingredients made popular by Dr. Oz, but that he has since said was a mistake to recommend.

Miracle Diet Drops are an over the counter weight loss formulation that have been designed to be administered as a liquid instead of as a pill such as a capsule or tablet. While this doesn’t change the nature of the product in terms of the type of the type of benefit that it claims to provide, it could be more appealing than pills to dieters who find it challenging to be able to swallow tablets and capsules.

The official website explains that when a dieter purchases this product, he or she doesn’t just end up with a product but he or she also gains a membership to the dieting club through the company’s website. Whether or not this is actually considered to be a feature to buying the product is up to the individual dieter, as the website is quite rough, it is not regularly updated and maintained, and portions of it are quite hard to read as the background and text colors often approach one another. The text is filled with various types of mistakes and errors, to the extent that it may be believed that it was written in another language and translated with some form of software. If that is not the case, the people who are being the writing of the content did not take much care in terms of its accuracy and they have never gone back to repair it.

The website and membership aside, what most people would want to know about Miracle Diet Drops is whether or not they will actually work to help speed up weight loss or make it easier to accomplish.

After consulting with a doctor, the next thing that a dieter should do is look at the ingredients that make up the formulation. Although it took some searching on the website, the list of ingredients was finally located in the FAQ section. They appear to have been added as a kind of afterthought, as the entire format of their entry is different from the rest of the site.

At the time that this review was written, they were listed as: l-Carnitine, L-Omithine, L-Arginine, L-Glutamine, Tryosine, Tryptophan, Beta-Alanine, Green Tea Leaf Extract Panax Ginseng, Ginger Root, Garcinia, Eleuthero (Siberian ginseng), Capsicum, and Raspberry Ketone.

No research was cited in order to help to back up the claims that are made about these ingredients and any ability that they might have to make fat loss faster and easier. All of these substances are found quite commonly in the over the counter weight loss industry, but only some have been researched with weight loss in mind. Among them, only a small few have shown positive results in promoting weight loss in limited research.

Nuratrim is a diet supplement that is marketed by Bauer Nutrition – a large and well reputed company – as being an appetite suppressant as well as a fat burner. Bauer also manufactures this product and claims that it is completely natural, offering dieters enhanced thermogenesis to help them to lose weight with greater speed and ease.

According to the official webpage for the product on the manufacturer’s website, the formula is “unique” and it provides a complete level of support for dropping excess pounds.

The thermogenesis to which the marketing refers has to do with the body’s production of heat. This is a natural process that helps to ensure that you are neither too warm nor too cool. In order to produce heat, the body burns a certain number of the calories from your foods, or the fat stored on your body. When a diet pill that boosts thermogenesis is taken, this increases the body temperature and, therefore, raises the number of calories and fats that are burned off as the fuel for that heat. While the benefits of that action are nominal when the person is idle, when combined with activity such as a cardio workout, this can help to boost the results of that exercise.

The webpage also indicates that Nuratrim will help to increase the energy levels of the user, while reducing the appetite and calorie absorption, and increasing the metabolism.

At the time that this review was written, the ingredients listed in the Nuratrim formula were: green coffee extract, capsicum extract, liquorice extract, glucomannan konjac extract and raspberry ketone. One of those ingredients, the glucomannan konjac extract, was actually misspelled on the official website, which could suggest a carelessness on the part of the manufacturer. However, these mistakes do happen, so it may not actually be a reflection of what Bauer thinks of its product.

What is clear when looking at this list, is that none of these ingredients has been extensively tested on humans, and none would be considered to be proven by the medical community. There have been some preliminary studies on some of those substances, but not enough that anything could be considered to be conclusive.

While the official webpage does claim that some research has suggested that a user of these ingredients can lower their BMI and body fat levels, Bauer didn’t take the additional step to cite the study to which it was referring, so it would be difficult to take that claim seriously.

Metabosyn is a type of diet pill that is designed to help people to be able to lose weight. The company behind this product is NutriPharm, LLC, which is a large manufacturer of supplements within this category and that is based in Salt Lake City, Utah. That particular location is known to be a hub for very low quality health and weight loss category supplements. That said, just because this product is made in a certain city, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it will not work. It is important to give these diet pills a fair examination before discounting them, altogether.

To start, the company, itself, has had many different customer complaints registered against it, online. However, those complaints appear to be focused primarily on products other than Metabosyn, so there is still a chance that this could be the diamond in the rough.

The product is manufactured in the United States and it can be purchased exclusively within that country. The official website for the product does not offer international shipping options. At the time that this review was written, each bottle contained a month’s supply of the product and it cost $69.95, in addition to the $4.95 domestic shipping fee.

The ingredients that make up the Metabosyn formula were listed as being: green coffee bean extract, Chromax, raspberry ketone, lipolide SC, phenyethylamine, caffeine anhydrous, evodiamine, humulus lupulus, methyl synephrine, ginger root, quercetin, vitamin B12, and bioperine.

There are a few concerns that should start to rise when looking at this list of ingredients. The first is that this is a relatively long list, so it is hard to tell whether or not it is possible for enough of the ingredients to be used to produce any benefit – if there is any to be had. However, the second problem is that there is a potentially dangerous combination within this list. That combination is between the methyl synephrine and the caffeine anhydrous.

Caffeine anhydrous, on its own, is usually considered to be a well tolerated stimulant that is safe to use for most dieters on a regular basis. In fact, it has been extensively researched and it has been connected with a number of weight loss supporting benefits such as a metabolic boost, increased alertness, and even appetite suppression for some people.

On the other hand, synephrine is an ingredient that has been associated with some potentially dangerous side effects, to the point that the FDA has warned dieters not to use supplements that contain that ingredient. Furthermore, a growing body of research has shown that when synephrine is combined with other stimulants, especially caffeine, the risk of those dangerous side effects – such as stroke or heart attack – climbs significantly.
