What You Should Know
DuoLean is a diet supplement infused with natural, organic ingredients that claims to slim the body with their patented proprietary blend NeOpuntia, which is said to absorb 28% more fat than Chitosan. According to their own research, the combination of NeOpuntia and their herbal ingredients helps prevent fat from fully absorbing in the digestive system and helps maintain healthy weight levels. Another proprietary blend, Alpha Trim, claims to prevent the breakdown of carbohydrates, acting as a sort of carb block as well. Using DuoLean’s TRA Weight Management program is also heavily recommended in order to successfully use DuoLean’s product. The all natural formula is claimed to be a hit with consumers, although no testimonials are provided on their website.
Those interested in DuoLean’s formula may purchase it off their website for $44.65 per 90 ct bottle, which is roughly a 30 day supply. No word on available samples or discounts on their website, and it appears this supplement is exclusively available on the Internet. Despite these issues, however, DuoLean maintains the belief that its groundbreaking formula will provide substantial results for dieters.
NeOpuntia (Opuntia Ficus Indica), Alpha Trim (Wheat Extract), Gelatin, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Magnesium Stearate and Silicon Dioxide.
DuoLean claims two of its proprietary formulas, NeOpuntia and Alpha Trim bind to fat and carbohydrates, preventing it from being fully absorbed in the body and stimulating weight loss. Unfortunately, there have been no studies that prove these benefits. NeOpuntia, which consists mainly of Opuntia Ficus Indica, better known as the Indian Fig, is only recognized as an antidiarrhea and blood glucose stabilizing agent. Several studies have shown its chemical properties, which are unique to the plant, help regulate digestion, making it a suitable and natural remedy for digestive issues. There is also some evidence it may reduce the symptoms of alcohol hangover due to how it binds to the chemicals that contribute to hangover symptoms. This may be why DuoLean claims NeOpuntia binds and destroys fat, although this is simply not true. No studies have shown it can produce this effect. Dieters should not mistake the Indian Fig as a useless ingredient, however. It is rich in vitamins and nutrients and may help regulate the digestive system.
- Opuntia Ficus Indica may help regulate the digestive system, an issue for some dieters.
- Heavily recommends exercise and a proper diet.
- States dieters should not depend on their supplement alone for results.
- There is no independent evidence provided stating it may help absorb fats more readily than Chitosan.
- There are no studies showing wheat extracts help prevent carbohydrate breakdown in the body.
- Does not contain any ingredients which promote thermogenesis.
The lack of thermogenic ingredients and proper evidence are two facts that cannot be ignored, and DuoLean fails to provide any evidence about how its proprietary blends prevent the absorption of fats and carbohydrates in the body. These proprietary blends do contain numerous vitamins and minerals, however, and the proven stabilizing effects of Opuntia Ficus Indica may be an attractive benefit of this supplement.
