Rockstar R7 Thermogenic Hyper-Metabolizer

Rockstar R7 Thermogenic Hyper-Metabolizer is an over the counter dietary supplement that promises its users that it will speed up their metabolism for faster fat burning.  This is a highly common claim among diet pill manufacturers, so it’s up to customers to be savvy about what ingredients can do, whether or not they are safe and if they are worth the money.

What Does Rockstar R7 Thermogenic Hyper-Metabolizer Promise?

The claims made about Rockstar R7 Thermogenic Hyper-Metabolizer on the official brand’s website is that it will provide the body with thermogenic ingredients.  Thermogenics are a type of substance that will increase the body’s thermogenesis levels.  Thermogenesis is the process used in the body for producing heat.  It’s what helps your body to maintain a steady body heat throughout the day, it’s behind your raised temperature after a workout, it is what leads to a fever when you’re sick, and it’s what makes you feel hotter after you eat spicy foods.

As you can see, thermogenesis is a very natural process.  What Rockstar R7 Thermogenic Hyper-Metabolizer and other diet pills in this category try to do is to boost the process to raise the body temperature just slightly.  The reason that is beneficial is that in order to produce heat, the body needs to burn a fuel.  When used properly, that fuel can be your body’s stored body fat or the calories you’ve eaten in your recent meals and snacks.

What Are the Ingredients?

To understand whether or not you should trust the claims Rockstar R7 Thermogenic Hyper-Metabolizer makes about itself, it’s a good idea to have a closer look at the ingredients in its formula.  These will help you to know whether it contains substances that have been shown to produce the reactions it promises.  It will also help you to see if you should expect potential side effects or if there are safety issues you should know about.

At the time this Rockstar R7 Thermogenic Hyper-Metabolizer review was written, the ingredients in its formula were listed on the package as:

  • Green coffee bean
  • Conjugated linoleic acid
  • Hoodia
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Caffeine anhydrous
  • Garcinia cambogia
  • Raspberry ketones
  • African mango
  • Rhodiola root
  • Guarana
  • White kidney bean
  • Turmeric
  • 5-HTP
  • Griffonia simplicifolia
  • L-arginine
  • Papaya leaf

At first glance, it’s very easy to see that the people who formulated Rockstar R7 Thermogenic Hyper-Metabolizer had done their homework in ensuring that virtually every hyped diet pill ingredient made it onto this list.  What isn’t as clear is why so many of these substances were chosen and why they were all combined in the way they were.  The official website for this product doesn’t cite any published research into these ingredients.

While some have been researched, the majority of the studies are considered to be preliminary. Indeed, some are seen as thermogenesis promoting. However, with a list this long, it is unclear as to how there would be enough of many of these ingredients contained within these pills to provide the same effects shown in the preliminary research available. Moreover, many of these ingredients have not been researched in combination with each other. It is therefore exceptionally important to speak with your doctor before taking these pills.

Saba ACE

Saba ACE Review

Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes cast)

Saba ACE is a weight management and energy formula that has been developed to provide dieters with the following benefits as they commit to their efforts to lose weight:

  • Fat loss
  • Weight loss
  • Appetite control
  • Energy
  • Relief from fatigue
  • Mood improvement
  • Focus improvement

If this OTC diet pill manages to provide all these benefits, it could certainly help make it easier for a dieter to stick to a calorie-controlled eating plan and engage in regular exercise. Naturally, the only way to know how well it can deliver on these benefits is to have a look at its ingredients list.

Saba ACE Formula

When this Saba ACE review was created, there were a number of ingredients within the formula. These included:

  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B12
  • Chromium

Saba ACE Proprietary Blend

  • Caffeine Anhydrous
  • GreenSelect Phytosome
  • Irvingia Gabonensis
  • Garcinia Cambogia
  • Dynamine
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • L-Theanine
  • Evodiamine
  • BioPerine

The ingredient that the manufacturer touts the most for Saba ACE is GreenSelect Phytosome. This is a proprietary lecithin formulation of a caffeine-free green tea catechin extract. There have been some studies conducted on this ingredient and findings have been promising in showing that GreenSelect Phytosome has clinical potential for the maintenance of weight after intentional weight loss. That said, keep in mind that simply because an ingredient shows potential this doesn’t mean that it’s proven. Additionally, remember that while this ingredient may have been studied, it has not been studied as part of the Saba ACE formula.

It should also be noted that in addition to the makers of Saba ACE claiming that GreenSelect Phytosome is clinically proven, it also states that irvingia gabonensis (African Mango) is clinically proven, which it is not.

An Energy Boost is Likely and So Is the Risk of Side Effects

Based on the Saba ACE ingredients list, it appears that this diet pill is likely to provide an energy boost, increase mental alertness and support enhanced metabolism. The simple reason being that it contains the stimulant caffeine.

Although it is not revealed how much caffeine is present in 1 serving size (1 capsule), as the caffeine is part of a blend, it is likely to be a notable amount. This is believed for two reasons. The first is that it is the first ingredient listed in the blend. The second is that the suggested use instructions warn users not to take a dose near bedtime as it could cause restlessness. As such, there is likely enough caffeine in this product that those who are sensitive to stimulants should probably think twice before taking it.

The bottom line is that there is no solid proof that Saba ACE is a quality and safe dietary supplement for weight management, especially when the manufacturer makes false claims about proven ingredients.

Avaprex review

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.

ZendaSlim is an over the counter weight loss pill that has been formulated to make it easier for dieters to be able to reduce their fat levels in a way that is faster and easier than diet and exercise alone. This is an exceptionally common claim in the health and wellness industry, so it is important to investigate a product that makes this type of promise, before actually purchasing it and starting to use it.

The official website for these diet pills has underscored the idea that it is “doctor endorsed and recommended.” At the time of this review, there was, indeed, one doctor’s name that could be found on the website in the form of an endorser of ZendaSlim. What was interesting about this individual’s endorsement, at the time of the writing of this review, was that the picture of the doctor who was supposed to have been the endorser is not the same as the image of the man that is linked to the endorsement page. It is unknown whether the link image is a generic photo simply to represent the idea of a doctor who would recommend the product, or whether this is someone else who has remained unnamed but who backs this pill. Either way, it doesn’t leave a feeling of confidence behind on the side of the viewer.

One positive note is that the website takes the additional step of providing a list of all of the ingredients contained within ZendaSlim, including references to studies that have to do with those various substances. The ingredients that make up this product include: Green Coffee Bean Extract, Green Tea Extract, African Mango Extract, Apple Cider Vinegar, Grapefruit, Caffeine, Acai Berry Extract, Resveratrol Extract, and Kelp.

While there are studies cited with respect to these ingredients, when actually looking at them, it is clear that many of them have a slim chance of actually providing any weight loss benefits to the dieter. Acai berry extract and resveratrol extract, for example, have been associated with some of the largest weight loss scams in the history of this category of the industry. Grapefruit has never been directly connected with fat loss. Green coffee bean extract and African mango extract are both greatly hyped ingredients that have never been adequately studied on human subjects for dieting purposes. All of their claims are unproven.

Caffeine and green tea extract are both supported by legitimate medical studies and can help to reduce the appetite, boost energy levels, and enhance fat burning.
