We’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about Clearvite. We wanted to know what the deal was so we wanted to do an in-depth review of their ingredients, side effects, published research and customer service. We also read tons of online reviews from the top retailers. Then, we condensed and summarized it all to give you the bottom line.
What You Need to Know
To start, Clearvite is a diet cleanse that is designed to be taken over the course of 2-3 weeks. This cleanse containschromium, molybdenum, evening primrose oil, inulin, medium chain triglycerides, l-glutamine, l. acidophilus, glycine, quercetin, rutin, hesperidin, l-lysine, amylase, cellulase, glucanase, protease, milk thistle, taurine, marshmallow, n-acetyl l-cysteine, choline, Jerusalem artichoke, gamma oryzanol, pea protein, vitamins and minerals. The product comes in a convenient tub and it can be mixed anywhere with a variety of liquids.
Clearvite has been around for over a decade, which is encouraging, and it can be purchased from many well-known retailers online. The company does have a professional looking website and has some longevity, but read on…
Our first concern with Clearvite was the high cost. “Clearvite doesn’t seem too expensive at just $59 per canister,” said our Research Editor, “but when you learn that each one lasts just 7-10 days, the monthly cost can be over $150.”
“I bought this thinking it was a good deal, but in order to finish the cleanse you’ll need 2-3 bottles,” said one user.
“The $50 price tag won me over, but after reordering twice before completing my cleanse the final cost of $150 was just too much,” explained another.
Taste–“Poor Taste and Consistency”
Many reviewers agreed that the recent formula change for Clearvite led to a poor taste and a gritty consistency. “I liked the old formula, but the new formula has a poor taste and consistency, I won’t be ordering this again,” said one customer online.
“The new flavor is bad,” said another.
Many reviews on online retailers echoed this sentiment. Some people did find that mixing it with a sweeter liquid helped, but the increased calories in juice, milk, or other liquids can sabotage any positive effects of this supplement. “It tastes better with almond milk, but I stopped losing weight when I started taking this with milk,” said one review.
Our research shows that whenever a supplement or exercise routine is particularly troublesome (poor taste, negative side effects, difficult workouts, etc.), the likelihood of sustained weight-loss is slim. If Clearvite really does have a poor flavor and consistency like many reviewers claim, it could make it difficult to lose weight and keep it off.
The Science – “Evidence?”
The official website for Clearvite boasts great results and incredible success stories, but the lack of information about the ingredients and proprietary formula gives us a reason to be skeptical. There are no published studies proving the efficacy and without knowing details about the formula, we can’t research the effectiveness. At DietSpotlight, we’re always looking for science proving that a product works and is better than similar choices, so without this information we see big red flags.
The Bottom Line – Does Clearvite Work?
Racing out for a few bottles of Clearvite? We were initially excited to review a product that is easily available online, has decent longevity and had some good reviews, but because this cleanse doesn’t have any research backing up its claims, we aren’t comfortable recommending it as a weight-loss supplement. We’re also concerned about the high price of this cleanse, the poor taste and consistency and the lack of information about the ingredients.
If you’re looking to lose those last few pounds without the hassle of a cleanse, we suggest a product that offers proven weight-loss at an affordable price. Look for a one that has claims backed by published research and unbiased studies.
Among the best products we’ve seen so far in 2016 is a product called Leptigen. The proprietary blend of four ingredients has been shown in published research and clinical studies to help increase fat loss while boosting metabolism. The online reviews seem to agree that this is an effective weight-loss tool and there doesn’t seem to be any mention of negative side effects.
The makers of Leptigen are currently offering a Special Trial Offer, because they are exceptionally confident in the formula.
