The people behind MetaboLife Ultra first dalliance into the diet supplement market was with a product called Metabolife 356. It showed tremendous promise initially but had to be scrapped since it contained Ephedra – a substance that is now virtually banned
Though this does not condemn them by any means, the manufacturers have since then only succeeded in bringing out products which have been mediocre at best. It shows that their lab wholly depended on the power of Ephedra to deliver rather than explore other healthier avenues.
With MetaboLife Ultra they have introduced an Ephedra free line but are again heavily depending on caffeine to show fast results. Not really good news for their users. While it has shown some sporadic results, news of side effects have also traveled in its wake making users wary of using it freely.
What It Claims to Do
Essentially a caffeine-based fat burner that claims to not just burn fat, but also control hunger pangs to aid in weight loss.
The official website suggests that the user take plenty of exercise and follow a healthy diet when they take these pills for optimum results.
Proper diet and regular workouts lead to weight management naturally. Why would anyone need an additional supplement when they have the time to do these is anybody’s guess.
The manufacturers boast that their key ingredient – the SuperCitrimax, will lead one to fast and effective weight loss in no time at all. By this they are relying on the powers of Garcinia Cambogia and Hydroxycitric Acid.
Though these ingredients are parts of many weight loss supplements, scientific evidence regarding their effectiveness is not very conclusive.
The official website shows no proof that there has been any clinical trials to corroborate their own claims. Besides, the use of these ingredients and caffeine does not show any path breaking achievement in any case.
The official website claims that Metabolife Ultra inhibits fat production, suppresses appetite, and reduces body fat while preserving lean muscles. The presence of caffeine acts as an energy booster.
- The main ingredient Super CitriMax is a proprietary blend of Hydroxycitric Acid and Garcinia cambogia fruit extract.
- Other than this the supplements contains Caffeine, Chromium Picolinate, Calcium, and the antioxidant Co-enzyme Q10.
- Other Ingredients in the capsules consists of maltodextrin, croscarmellose sodium, microcrystalline cellulose, stearic acid, dextrin, silica, dextrose, sodium carboxymethylcellulose, soy lecithin, sodium citrate.
The high dose of caffeine leads to insomnia, nervous and jittery feeling, restlessness, breathing problems, cardio vascular problems and increased heart rate, and increasing headaches. Those who are caffeine sensitive should definitely stay away.
Even those who are not may suffer from these symptoms. To top it all caffeine can be habit forming and too much caffeine intake may lead to dependency. Sudden stop may even lead to withdrawal symptoms.
Pregnant women, nursing mothers and people who suffer from chronic conditions like diabetes and hypertension should refrain using this product.
