Xenadrine Core Review
Xenadrine Core is a fat burner manufactured by Iovate Health Sciences International Inc. and marketed under the Xenadrine brand name. The present Xenadrine range consist of four products, Xenadrine Gummies, Xenadrine Drink Mix, Xenadrine Caffeine-Free, and, of course, Xenadrine Core.
The Xenedrine website has a clean sleek look and even provides an online calorie counting tool, but, other than a list of ingredients the site contains very little information about the product. This is a pity because the “new blue chrome rapid release pill” sounds rather interesting.
Advertised benefits include:
- Powerful weight loss
- Hardcore thermogenic formula
- Unrivalled sensory & energy
How the Formulation Works
According to the information that is available on the site, Xenadrine Core is designed to provide a fast acting thermogenic reaction. Thermogenic fat burners speed up the metabolism, allowing the body to burn calories faster than normal. The thermogenic process also causes a slight rise in the body’s core temperature and creates an internal environment that is more predisposed to efficient fat burning.
Ingredients & Formulation Potential
Each capsule contains 600mg of active ingredients, but inclusion rates are only supplied for two of them.
Green Coffee Bean Extract (200mg) – Green coffee beans contain a natural thermogen called chlorogenic acid, and a number of studies have proven its fat burning abilities are real. In one 12-week study, conducted in Norway by ETC Research and Development, one group of volunteers was given daily supplements of chlorogenic acid-enriched coffee and another group was given normal coffee.
At the end of the study the group that was given instant coffee had lost 1.7kg in weight. The group that received chlorogenic acid with their coffee had lost 5.4kg.
Caffeine Anhydrous (150 mg) – Although caffeine is famous for its fatigue-fighting and focus-enhancing abilities many people are unaware that it also has a proven metabolism boosting ability, can encourage fat burning, and is natural appetite suppressant.
Experts at the Mayo Clinic confirm its value in both these respects, but point out any results attained are likely to be quite small.
The rest of the blend is made up of:
• White kidney bean extract
• Mangosteen Fruit Powder
• Sacred lotus seed extract
• Perilla Leaf Extract
• Gotu kola whole herb extract
• Caraway Seed Extract
As a weight loss provider, white kidney bean stands out as offering the most value. It is a natural carb blocker with a proven ability. Carb blockers work by preventing carbohydrates from being digested properly. This causes the carbs to pass through the body without releasing their calories. A gram of carbohydrate contains 4 calories, so carb blockers are good loss aids, but the lack of inclusion rates makes it hard to say how much benefit white kidney bean offers here.
The rest of the ingredients may provide a health boost, but are unlikely to contribute much to the weight loss process and, once again, inclusion rates would be required before speculating on the possible benefits.
[info]Usage Instructions – New users should take just one capsule per day. If side effects are not apparent the dosage may be increased to two capsules, taken twice a day, from day three onwards. Capsules should always be taken 30 minutes before eating a meal, but must never be taken within five hours of bedtime. For best results supplementation should be continued for at least six weeks and a heathy diet and regular exercise is advised.[/info]
Customer feedback is mixed
A few sample comments read:
[plain]”Works super fast and doesn’t cause any nasty side effects. Gives you oodles of energy as well. I would have no hesitation in recommending Xenadrine Core to my friends.[/plain]
[plain]”I’ve lost 2kg in less than two weeks and I’m buzzing with energy and don’t feel the desire to snack. These pills really work so I’ll be ordering some more soon.”[/plain]
[plain]”I kinda expected these would work – but I guess I will just have to ask for a refund[/plain]
[plain]did absolutely nothing for me … I am so disappointed[/plain]
Side Effects & Health Issues
No side effects have been reported, but caffeine usage can lead to headaches, nausea and jitters. Each capsule provides as much caffeine as 1 1/2 cups of coffee, so anyone who is sensitive to stimulants, or who has any health issues or concerns, should get a doctor’s approval before supplementing with Xenadrine Core. The same advice is offered to pregnant or nursing mothers.
Purchasing Options & Considerations
The manufacturer’s marketing efforts are aimed solely at buyers in the USA, so potential buyers who live in the UK or Australia will probably struggle to find a supplier. A1 Supplements appears to be the only Xenadrine Core supplier that is happy to ship to the UK. The RRP is US$59.99 (£40), but this is often discounted down to US$38.95 (£26) plus shipping.
If you are in the market for a strong fat burner that can be as a pre work out supplement that is suitable for both male and females then look closely at Phentaslim.
