What You Should Know
Gaspari’s CytoLean V2 is a fat burning supplement that claims to work better than the rest of the competition. This is the same claim every fat burner makes, but few live up to. Gaspari Nutrition does not list CytoLean on the official website which could mean the product is no longer being offered from Gaspari. Retailers may continue to sell inventory until there is no additional stock available, but expiration dates must be checked before ordering such a product. The original version of the supplement CytoLean has been discontinued. Will the ingredient list for Gaspari’s CytoLean make a third-party purchase worth it?
List of Ingredients
Gaspari’s CytoLean Original: Green Tea, Caffeine, Phenylethylamine.
Proprietary Blend: Green Tea Extract, Proprietary Extract of Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae, B-Phenylethylamine HCL, Proprietary Extract of Paullinia Cupana.
Psycho-Corticoid Optimization Matrix: Caffeine, Lactium (aS1-casein tryptic decapeptide), 7B-OH (7b-hydroxy-dehydroepiandrosterone), Chinese Boxthorn Extract (Lycium chinense), Bioperine, Huperzine A.
The original Gaspari’s CytoLean included three main ingredients, green tea, caffeine and phenylethylamine. Green tea is proven to boost fat burning as is caffeine. Phenylethylamine is a mood booster that some dieters find helps them stay focused on weight loss, though it is not safe for all dieters to use. This formula is no longer available though it received good reviews from dieters.
The initial proprietary blend in the new CytoLean contains a proven weight loss ingredient – green tea. We like products that contain green tea, though we would like to see how much green tea is actually used in Gaspari’s CytoLean. All they have to include is a touch and it can be listed on the label. In that case, there would not be enough to promote fat loss.
Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae is tangerine peel. Tangerine peel contains synephrine and N-methyltyramine. Synephrine may help to raise heart rate a bit and thus impact fat burning, but the effect is not as strong as its cousin Ephedra. N-methyltyramine may boost the effectiveness of phenylethylamine.
Phenylethylamine is a natural mood altering ingredient. This ingredient may help some dieters feel better about dieting. In some cases, especially if the dieter is taking medications for depression or anxiety, this ingredient may not be safe to use.
Paullinia Cupana is Guarana. This scientific sounding name is clearly used to make the dieter feel it is some unique ingredient. It is a mild thermogenic and may increase heart rate enough to impact fat burning.
The final important fat burning ingredient is caffeine. Studies have concluded that taking green tea with caffeine can boost fat burning ability in the body and promote weight loss. We have no idea how much green tea or caffeine are used in Gaspari’s CytoLean and thus we cannot tell whether or not this thermogenic effect will actually occur.
Gaspari’s CytoLean sells for $26.95 per bottle from third-party retailers.
- Both new and old versions of Gaspari’s CytoLean may increase weight loss.
- Green tea is an effective fat burner.
- Caffeine may boost weight loss.
- All ingredients are in a proprietary blend.
- The older version received good dieter reviews but is no longer available.
Gaspari’s CytoLean V2 is not quite the version the original version was. Originally, the ingredient list read more like a mood boosting supplement than a weight loss product. This version is a bit less mood altering, but without information on ingredient amounts, it is difficult to tell whether the supplement will truly be effective or not.
