What You Should Know
Emerge is a new fat burner from Max Muscle. Max Muscle is a supplement franchise that is primarily located on the west coast. Products can be ordered online and shipped throughout the United States. Max Muscle calls Emerge a fat incinerator, which is an interesting description. The product is a drink mix, not a supplement, so the dieter has to measure the proper dose. This could be dangerous as some dieters think they can take more of a supplement and lose more weight. Emerge contains caffeine so taking more will only increase the risk of negative side effects associated with caffeine intake.

Max Muscle has always managed to stand out among supplement companies. Max Muscle lists all ingredients, provides a long list of key features and lists clinical studies supporting the product claims. The company doesn’t always offer supplements with all proven ingredients, but they do a pretty good job of offering strong supplements with effective ingredients.
Emerge is a fat burner. The ingredient list is packed with caffeine, green tea extract and L-carnitine, but that is where the good stops. There is no total amount of caffeine listed. Hoodia is the appetite suppressant, but hoodia doesn’t suppress appetite. Dandelion leaf extract is a diuretic and diuretics should not be used for weight loss. Citrus aurantium is another name for synephrine and synephrine is associated with ephedra-like side effects.
This time around Max Muscle dropped the ball. This product is not safe for all dieters and the label is missing some important information. We also worry about the dieter dosing with a measuring scoop when the main ingredient is caffeine.
- Contains caffeine and green tea.
- May work to boost metabolism and fat loss.
- There is a product description sheet online.
- Max Muscle lists clinical studies for some ingredients.
- We have no idea how much caffeine is included in the supplement.
- The supplement is in powder form – could be dangerous.
- Contains ingredients associated with negative side effects.
If you are a dieter living near a Max Muscle, go into the store and ask for a sample of Emerge. There is no other way to try out the formula, but beware of the possible negative side effects. Otherwise, we would suggest skipping this product just because there are more possible dangers than benefits.
