Burn Ultra Review – Thermogenic Fat Burning Drink

Burn Ultra Review – Thermogenic Fat Burning Drink

Burn UltraBurn Ultra is a thermogenic fat burning supplement produced in America by Core Nutritionals.

The company manufactures a number of other weight management and sports supplements all of which appear to be aimed at people who have more athletic lifestyles than the average person who is looking to lose weight.

Apart from fat burning, Burn Ultra users are promised the following benefits:

  • Sustained energy
  • No jitters
  • No artificial colours
  • Gluten-free formulation

However, Burn Ultra is only available as a powder, so it has to be mixed with water and consumed as a drink. This is a fact that may deter many dieters from using the product because although bodybuilders and other sporty individuals may be used to taking supplements of this nature such supplements are not as convenient to use as diet pills.

What is Burn Ultra and How Does it Work?

There is nothing particularly cutting-edge about the formulation. Like most thermogenic fat burners, Burn Ultra contains ingredients that have been chosen for their ability to speed up the metabolism and raise the body temperature by an amount that is sufficient to encourage the body to begin burning fat. Any extra energy the product provides will be largely due to the fact the formulation is loaded with stimulants.

Key Ingredients

Each (5g) scoop of Burn Ultra contains:

  • Acetyl-L-Carnitine HCI (500mg): According to the authority website Examin.com, supplementation with Acetyl-L-Carnitine may support weight loss, but the effects are likely to be greater for elderly users.
  • Garcinia Cambogia Extract (60% HCA) (250mg): A fruit that provides hydroxycitric acid (HCA). It is primarily used as a fat blocker. Most experts agree the extract needs to provide 60% HCA to be effective for weight loss. The extract used here provides this, so that is a point in its favour, but the inclusion rate may be a little low.
  • Green Coffee Extract (250mg): The active ingredient in green coffee bean extract is a compound called chlorogenic acid that is believed to be a themogenic fat burner.
  • Caffeine (150mg): A stimulant that can provide extra energy and aid concentration and metal focus. Caffeine has also been proven to be an effective thermogenic fat burner.
  • Coleus Forskholii Extract (125mg): A plant extract that is often added to supplements because its presence is believed to encourage weight loss and help protect against loss of existing muscle tissue.
  • Bacopa Monniera Extract (100mg): A plant extract that is often used in traditional Indian medicine. Some research suggest Bacopa Monniera may be useful for treating age-related memory problems, but the reason for its inclusion here is unclear.
  • Advantra Z (50% Synephrine): A branded form of the fat burning stimulant synephrine.
  • PURENERGY (50mg): A patented ingredient that combines caffeine with pTeroPure. According to the manufacturer, PURENERGY is absorbed more quickly than normal caffeine.
  • Theobromine (50mg): A stimulant that is milder than caffeine. It may provide an extra energy boost. Theobromine is also believed to useful for improving the mood.
Usage Instructions – New users should mix one scoop of the formulation with 10-12oz of water and consume the mixture in the mornings. An additional serving can be taken 5-6 hours later. If no tolerance issues arise it is permissible to increase the morning dose to two scoops, but the afternoon dose must remain at just one scoop because three scoops should never be exceeded in any 24-hour period. After eight weeks of continuous use supplementation should be stopped for at least four weeks. Core Nutritionals also state the formulation must not be used alongside other foods, products, or beverages that contain caffeine or other stimulants.

Customer Feedback

We were unable to find any customer feedback other than a comment left on the manufacturer’s website by a customer who said the formulation helped to wake him up in a morning and keep him going for several hours.

Side Effects & Health Issues

Core Nutritionals point out Burn Ultra is unsuitable for women who are pregnant or nursing a child. The formulation is also not intended for people who are under 18-years of age. All potential users are advised to seek medical advice before commencing supplementation and Core Nutritionals state this is especially important for people who have existing health problems or are using medication.

Purchasing Options & Considerations

Burn Ultra is available in several flavour choices including mango, peach, and blueberry and green tea. Each tub contains 56 (5g) servings and has a price tag of USD$ 39.99 (AUS$ 55) when purchased from the Core Nutritionals online store.

It is also possible to purchase Burn Ultra from SpartanSuppz, but although the shipping charges are less this still may not be the cheapest option because SpartanSuppz are asking AUS$ 79.95 per tub.

Guarantee

There does not appear to be a money back guarantee.

The Bottom Line

Although Burn Ultra may be able to support weight loss the formulation contains so many stimulants it will probably be more useful as an energy provider and may be a very good option for bodybuilders who are searching for a pre-workout supplement. There are better options available for people who are trying to slim down and lose weight.

Platinum Soursop Graviola Extract Review

Platinum Soursop Graviola Extract

Soursop GraviolaIn 1997 researchers at Purdue University, in Indiana, USA, conducted studies involving compounds taken from the Brazilian pawpaw tree. The researchers wanted to see if the compounds may be useful for fighting drug-resistant cancers. The preliminary success of their studies caused quite a buzz and many supplement manufacturer’s began producing products that contain extracts taken from the fruit of the tree (graviola).

Unfortunately, many graviola-providing supplements contain too many binders and fillers, so the quality is pretty poor. Platinum Soursop Graviola Extract has been one of the most popular graviola products for a number of years. But is it really likely to be the strongest, most potent graviola supplement available? The manufacturer claims it is, but big claims are common in the supplement industry. Let’s take a closer look at Platinum Soursop Graviola Extract and see if it can hold up to close scrutiny.

Advertised Benefits

  • Positive mood
  • Healthy cell support
  • Supports immune system health

Active Ingredients

Two Platinum Soursop Graviola Extract capsules provide 1000mg of graviola extract. It is the only active ingredient and we are pleased to discover it is not diluted by unnecessary binders and fillers.

Graviola fruit is enjoyed as a food in many different countries of the world and it is known to have a high nutritional value. Graviola is also used as a traditional remedy for stomach aches, respiratory problems and muscle pain.

Apart from providing numerous vitamins and minerals, graviola also contains a group of phytochemicals called acetogenins. Studies are ongoing, but these acetogenins appear capable of retarding the growth of cancer cells while also making them more vulnerable to the effects of cancer-fighting drugs.

How to Use Platinum Soursop Graviola Extract – We could not find any usage instructions, but each dose consists of two capsules, and a bottle of Platinum Soursop Graviola Extract contains 30 doses. Most supplements are sold in one-month supplies, so we presume the normal dose to be two capsules, once per day.

Customer Comments

We found a number of affiliate-run websites that quote positive reviews, but we were unable to find any customer reviews at all. Bearing in mind that fact that affiliate-build sites are designed to sell the products they contain, and earn the site-owner a commission, there’s a good chance the reviews are fake.

Side Effects & Health Issues

Although graviola is a healthy fruit to eat, the extracts that are used in supplements are very concentrated. This is not generally a bad thing, it can make for a much stronger product, but graviola contains a chemical called annonacin and unusually high doses can impair the speech and interfere with motor functions. This does not make graviola a potentially dangerous ingredient, but it does mean supplement users need to treat it with respect and never exceed the stated dose. It also means supplements that contain graviola extract may be an unsuitable option for people who suffer from Parkinson’s disease and already have problems with their speech and motor functions.

Guarantee

Although Platinum Soursop Graviola Extract appears to be backed by a 90-day money back guarantee, this is not the case. An examination of the terms and conditions page on the official website reveals the company only accepts returns of unopened product and a USD$ 10 restocking fee is deducted from any refund that is made.

Where to Buy Platinum Soursop Graviola Extract

You can only get Platinum Soursop Graviola Extract from the manufacturer’s website, but it is only possible to obtain it by agreeing to pay a small charge for postage and accepting the offer of a “trial bottle”.

This sounds pretty good from the get-go, especially with shipping costs to Australia being what they are, but things are not what they seem. An examination of the terms and conditions reveals the trial is also for the company’s automated billing and shipping program and customers who fail to realise this, and do not cancel the agreement in time, will be charged for the trial bottle.

They will also receive a fresh shipment of pills every month and the charge will be applied against the card they used when paying the postage costs. We were unable to discover how much a bottle of Platinum Soursop Graviola Extract costs, but products that are sold via automated billing and shipping programs are usually expensive and sometimes cost more than USD$ 100 per month.

Concluding Thoughts

We are not big on companies that operate automated billing and shipping programs, but when we checked the consumer complaint sites we did not find and complaints about Platinum Soursop Graviola Extract, so that’ s a point in its favour. We are also impressed with the quality of the product and feel the manufacturer’s claim that Platinum Soursop Graviola Extract is the “strongest, most potent” graviola supplement available could very well be true.
