Embrace Weight Loss Review - Does This Diet Kit Work? Are ineffectiveness and questionable ingredients deal breakers?PUBLISHED: 09/14/2015 | BY: SUMMER BANKS, SENIOR REVIEWER
There’s a bit of buzz around Embrace Weight-Loss, so we chose to dive right into ingredients, side effects, customer service and clinical research. We went through hundreds of consumer reviews and comments. Then, we gathered, refined and condensed to give you the info you need.
What You Need to Know
First off, Embrace Weight-Loss is a kit combining energy, toning and detox supplements. Some of the ingredients include caffeine, synephrine, senna leaf powder, raspberry ketones and green tea extract. When taken daily, the products are supposed to help the dieter lose more weight. There are three bottles, but you only have to take a few pills or capsules with you on the go.
The product, released by NDS Nutrition after 2002, claims to support weight-loss day and night, a good idea. While you can’t buy the supplements on the official website, you can at GNC stores and online. We like the longevity of the company and all ingredients are listed for consumers to research, but read on…
No Results at All
The first thing we took into consideration was the effectiveness of Embrace Weight-Loss. “The idea of taking three supplements a day may make the user feel like they’re attacking those extra pounds head on for 24 hours,” offers our Research Editor. “But, if the product doesn’t produce results, why would the dieter keep taking it?”
“After two weeks of taking the all three supplements and completely cutting out sodas because of the caffeine in the Embrace. with moderate exercise. I lost ZERO pounds,” one dieter reports.
“Embrace Xtreme was a waste of money,” says another.

Ineffective or Potentially Dangerous Ingredients
Two Embrace Weight-Loss ingredients we felt needed special attention were synephrine and raspberry ketones. One comes with the potential for side effects and the other offers no proven benefits.
The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health at NIH has a warning about synephrine, “Because bitter orange [synephrine] contains chemicals that may speed up the heart rate and raise blood pressure, it may not be safe to use as a dietary supplement. There have been reports of fainting” and other more dangerous reactions.
In regards to raspberry ketones the NIH says only one study has been completed and the participants took a supplement that contained multiple other ingredients and stimulants making it “impossible to determine the effects of [this ingredient] alone.” Sixty minutes of exercise and a reduced calorie diet was also part of the trial.
Our experience and research shows if one part of a diet plan, like effectiveness, doesn’t live up to dieter expectations the chances of long-term success are low. If Embrace Weight-Loss isn’t what the user wants it to be, that’s reason to walk away.
There is some clinical research into ingredients like caffeine and green tea extract. The company doesn’t bother to list any studies, likely because they would then have to show others that prove the formula is not as effective as other alternatives. Synephrine makes us worry about Embrace Weight-Loss side effects and raspberry ketones do nothing to help you lose more weight. Senna leaf extract can cause diarrhea and stomach cramping. At DietSpotlight, the science is a critical part of the review process. If there’s none to go on, the dieter should turn away.
The Bottom Line
Our interest in Embrace Weight-Loss peaked and after a closer look we came to a firm conclusion. We like that the company has been around for more than a decade and you can buy products from a trusted business with a lenient return policy, but we can’t recommend a supplement with potentially dangerous ingredients and no headquarters information. It also concerns us that there’s no clinical research mentioned on the official website.
If it’s time to get up and shed those pounds, we suggest going with a supplement that’s affordable and proven effective by published clinical research.
Among the best products we’ve found in 2015 is Leptigen. The formula is comprised of four ingredients with strong clinical support. Side effects are not reported by dieters, but we did find quite a few reviews that reported some amazing results.
Also, the company is so confident in Leptigen they are offering a special trial offer, nice addition.
