What You Should Know
Dymatize markets a wide variety of nutritional supplements aimed primarily at athletes and body-builders. Dymatize’s product lines include: Nitric Oxide, High Protein Cereal & Oatmeal, Protein, Amino Acids, Creatine, Specialty Products, Energy & Fat Loss, and Apparel & Accessories. We will focus on the Energy and Fat Loss product line in this review. Dymatize carries several products in the Energy & Fat Loss line including: Guggul Complex, AMP’D Energized Fat Burner, Liquid Speed, Dyma-Burn, Acetyl L-Carnitine, Tonalin CLA, and Dyma-Retic. Each product contains different ingredients and this always concerns us when we see it. We feel that the best weight loss products companies focus on a single formulation that they believe to be the most effective. When we see a company that markets many different ingredients in many different products, it can confuse consumers trying to find the one that will work the best for them.
All of the Dymatize products can be purchased directly from the company’s website. Being able to buy directly from the company generally provides savings to the customer and results in better customer service. However, we were unable to locate any information about a manufacturer’s money back guarantee. We like to see this type of guarantee as it not only allows the customer to purchase without financial risk but it also shows that the company stands behind its products and their quality. There also does not appear to be any product samples available so that consumers can try the product before investing in a whole bottle or jar.
The Liquid AMP’d is one of Dymatize’s most popular fat burning products so we will take a closer look at this product for the purposes of this review. According to the Dymatize website, the active ingredients in Liquid AMP’d are: Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12, Caffeine, Glucuronolactone, NAC, Taurine, L-Tyrosine, L-Phenalalanine, Guggulsterone E&Z, Evodiamine, Green Tea, Citrimax, and Bladderwrack.
Liquid AMP’d contains many ingredients common in other weight loss aids. The three ingredients we feel may be the most effective in the formulation are caffeine, green tea, and Citrimax. Caffeine and green tea have been clinically proven to help burn fat and boost metabolism. Citrimax is showing scientific promise as a fat burner. Many of the other ingredients do not have the clinical trials behind them to support their effectiveness. Dymatize does not provide any indication of clinical trials supporting the effectiveness of the ingredients or the product itself.
- Contains some ingredients that may be effective at fat burning.
- Can purchase directly from the manufacturer.
- No money-back guarantee offered.
- Many products may confuse consumers.
- Some ingredients do not have scientific support.
Dymatize’s line of fat burning products appears to be fairly lackluster in the way of ingredients used. We would have been more impressed if the company’s website contained information on the ingredients and their role in the formulation. Fortunately, there are products on the market today that contain proven weight loss ingredients and are backed by satisfaction guarantees. We recommend that consumers research other products before settling on this one.
