What You Should Know
HCG Platinum Maintain by Right Way Nutrition claims to boost energy and fat loss. The supplement comes in drops so the dieter must drip several stops under the tongue twice a day. The drops are absorbed via the mouth and fat boosting begins. We find it hard to believe that a few drops will boost energy and stimulate weight loss, but the ingredient list could prove us wrong.
GNC sells HCG Platinum Maintain for $69.99. It is likely that the supplement is in drop form to convince dieters the product is similar to an HCG injection. HCG or human chorionic gonadotropin is secreted by the female body when pregnancy occurs. The product claims to work for both men and women.
List of Ingredients
Acetyl L-Carnitine, L-Ornithine, L-Arginine, L-Phenylalanine, Caffeine, L-Theanine, USP Purified Water, Grain Alcohol (20% by volume), Stevia Extract, natural flavors (raspberry and peach), Sucralose, Peppermint, Essential Oil.
Acetyl L-Carnitine is responsible for part of the energy production process in the body. We found evidence that this ingredient could help men recover from symptoms of male menopause and may reduce nerve pain for patients suffering from diabetes, but there is no link to HCG levels. Dieters taking acetyl L-carnitine have complained of nausea and restless sleep.
L-Ornithine helps the body get rid of nitrogen. This function is similar to self-detoxing. There are no links to weight loss. L-Arginine is a healthy and safe amino acid with antioxidant properties. L-arginine supports other antioxidants, by helping to reproduce antioxidants the body may be deficient in, to fight free radical and oxidants. The body produces L-arginine.
L-Phenylalanine is a natural mood booster. This ingredient is not safe for use by people suffering from depression or other mood disorder. This is especially true if the dieter is taking prescription medication for the condition.
Caffeine boosts energy and metabolism. The dieter only consumers 80 mg of caffeine per day from HCG Platinum Maintain.
- Ingredients are listed online.
- The product is sold from a reliable source.
- We found no ingredients to boost HCG.
- The product is priced higher than other fat burning supplements.
Caffeine is likely the reason dieters would lose weight with this supplement. HCG Platinum Maintain is full of amino acids, some of which are healthy additions to a diet and weight loss program. For the small amount of caffeine added to the supplement, Right Way Nutrition could have included green tea extract and boosted weight loss potential. We found no indication that HCG Platinum Maintain would help a dieter lose more weight, but the claims of increased energy may be true. Over time, the body would get used to the small amount of caffeine and that energy would taper off.
