What You Should Know
Healthy Directions offers Metabo-X by Dr. Susan Lark. The metabolism boosting supplement claims dieters can start losing 10 pounds by taking the supplement today. The official website offers plenty of information for the dieter, including a picture of the label and a reference picture for pill size. For dieters who have trouble swallowing large pills, this reference is invaluable. Contact information is also available on the Healthy Directions website and online ordering is supported.
List of Ingredients
Chromium, Ashwagandha Extract, Green Coffee Extract (decaffeinated).
The ingredient list is quite impressive. Chromium is a proven weight loss ingredient that may control blood sugar levels. Blood sugar spikes and plummets when carbohydrates are consumed. This may cause hunger so Chromium is important for appetite suppression.
Ashwagandha Extract is adaptogenic. This means the ingredient helps the body adjust to stresses. Studies have associated this ingredient with relaxing benefits at doses of 500 milligrams. Luckily Metabo-X contains 500 milligrams. There is also a chance Ashwagandha offers anti-inflammatory benefits, which makes this ingredient have a two-for-one impact.
Green Coffee Bean Extract would normally supply some caffeine. Caffeine is important to weight loss as it is proven to increase metabolism. This source of green coffee bean extract is decaffeinated. This is very depressing. Taking the caffeine out of the ingredient may help prevent jitters and open the supplement up to dieters who are sensitive to caffeine, but it also renders the other ingredients less effective. We suggest supplementing with small amounts of caffeine for the proven metabolism boosting benefits.
Due to the fact that one of the main active ingredients is a stress reliever, Metabo-X claims it will reduce stomach or abdominal fat. During times of stress, cortisol is released, forcing the body to store fat around the middle. Take away the stress and the fat won’t store there. That does not mean more fat will be burned from the midsection. The body will choose to burn fat from the easiest spot and while that MAY be the midsection, that is not a guarantee.
- Ingredients are listed on the Healthy Directions website.
- The website is easy to navigate.
- Online ordering is supported.
- Chromium is a proven ingredient.
- Ashwagandha Extract may help relieve stress.
- The Green Coffee Bean Extract is decaffeinated.
- The supplement will not definitely increase abdominal fat loss.
- We wonder what happens after those 10 pounds referenced on the website.
Two of the three ingredients in Healthy Directions Metabo-X are proven and included in the right amounts. The lack of caffeine boost from the supplement is disappointing. Caffeine is also a proven ingredient and in the right amounts will boost metabolism without causing side effects like jitters.
