What You Should Know
AbGONE is a capsule diet supplement distributed by Biotech Research. So many people are dissatisfied with their abdominal muscles, and this product claims to specifically target the user’s belly fat. AbGONE also claims to be free of the potentially harmful stimulant ephedra. Ultimately, AbGONE claims that users will finish a course of the supplement with coveted six-pack abs. The product claims to specifically reduce the amount of cortisol in the body, which is believed to directly affect fat-retention in the stomach area. Starchy, carb-rich foods, particularly, raise cortisol levels more than protein-rich foods do. AbGONE’s primary active ingredient seems to be CLA, which stands for conjugated linoleic acid. Though studies are still in the early stages, this acid has been shown to have some success at treating tumors. It has also been shown to block the body’s glucose intake, hence reducing abdominal fat. However, not much research has been done on CLA, and some studies indicate that it could also interfere with insulin processing, potentially leading to a higher risk of diabetes.
AbGONE is available from the manufacture at the price of $81.00 for a 90 day supply, making it one of the more expensive weight loss diet supplements on the market today. Unfortunately, the Biotech Research website is fairly rudimentary and no dosage instructions are given for AbGONE. However, it does appear that the product is offered at a discount via the manufacturer’s subscription service.
List of Ingredients
The full list of active ingredients found in AbGONE is: Vitamin C, Zink, Chromium, Dandelion Root, Phosphatidylserine, CLA, L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine.
It seems to us that, while most of these ingredients certainly won’t hurt you, many might be more appropriate for an anti-wrinkle supplement or for a detox pill. Dandelion root, for example, is commonly found in herbal detox teas but we’ve never heard much about its effectiveness when it comes to weight-loss. The inclusion of CLA concerns us slightly. This seems like a potentially promising ingredient, but it also seems like an ingredient that could use a lot more testing. We found many studies were CLA was tested on laboratory animals, but few where it had been tested by human subjects.
- Product is available directly from manufacturer via official website.

- Other active ingredients seem to have little effect on any aspect of the weight loss process.
We do like AbGONE’s intentions; after all, the belly can be one of the most difficult areas for weight loss. The body tends to drop fat from other areas before it uses the fat stored away in the belly. However, we have some questions about AbGONE’s main active ingredient, CLA. We would be hesitant to use any products that include CLA at this phase and we’d like to see a lot more tests done on the ingredient’s effects in humans. We’re not saying that this is the case for AbGONE, but many diet drug manufacturers rush to put the latest “break-through” ingredients into their products, only to find out a couple years later that they have potentially harmful side-effects. With several diet drug scandals behind us already, our general rule is to wait on “break-through” new ingredients until all of the research has been done properly.
