What You Should Know
GC7X is not your average weight loss supplement. According to the official website, the supplement helps control hunger by stabilizing blood glucose. GC7X stands for Glucose Control 7 Times. The ingredient list for GC7X is interesting. The company claims the supplement includes Emulin, but it appears that Emulin is just a proprietary blend of other ingredients. Some of the ingredients are widely used in the weight loss industry, but others are a bit more obscure.
List of Ingredients
- Chloraxis Green Coffee Bean Extract
- Myraxis Bayberry Bark Extract
- Sophora Japonica Flower Extract
Information on GC7X is interesting to read, but the ingredient list leaves us a bit confused. Green coffee bean extract is commonly used as a stimulant in weight loss supplements. Hydroxycut, for instance, reformulated all supplements to include green coffee bean after the garcinia cambogia incident. Green coffee bean is considered a viable and effective weight loss ingredient because it contains caffeine, chlorogenic acid and antioxidants. We found no support for appetite suppression, however.
Bayberry bark extract is listed as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, but again we found no association between this ingredient and appetite suppression. Some websites warn that people with high blood pressure and edema should not take products contains bayberry bark extract.
The final ingredient in GC7X is cranberry extract. Cranberry extract is often taken to promote urinary tract health, but not as a weight loss ingredient. There are certainly no associations between cranberries and appetite suppression or blood glucose control.
We read through the information on clinical studies and found GC7X earned positive results in a human study, but the participants had type 2 diabetes. There is no mention of any studies performed on overweight humans that did not have type 2 diabetes.
- The official website refers to clinical studies supporting GC7X.
- The ingredients are listed on the website.
- Available from the manufacturer and outside vitamin retailers.
- Clinically proven to help reduce blood insulin response.
- Human studies were completed on diabetics.
- Not designed for the average dieter.
- May not help if the dieter is not diabetic.
- Links to the outside studies are not provided in the product description.
GC7X has a great website. Reading through the information, we wanted to hop on the bandwagon, but the fine print tells a different story. GC7X is designed to help control glucose, not appetite. While glucose control may lead to appetite control, this supplement has not been tested on people desiring to lose weight. It has been tested, however, on diabetics. Dieters with diabetes should not take GC7X without first speaking with their doctor. If it does work as claimed, medications for diabetes may need to be altered or stopped.
