What You Should Know
There are many different theories about the underlying cause of obesity and fat retention and dozens of different ways to try to correct it. Lean Xtreme markets itself as a cortisol regulator. Cortisol is a natural hormone in our bodies produced by the adrenal gland that gets released along with adrenaline when we are under stress, and it signals our body to store fat. Lean Xtreme’s theory is that most humans are under perpetual stress today and this leads to too much cortisol in our body. Lean Xtreme contains an ingredient that supposedly regulates cortisol production. The ingredients in the product are also said to increase testosterone level and Lean Xtreme is therefore mostly marketed as a weight loss aid for men.
We were not able to find an official web presence for Lean Xtreme but it appears to be widely available through online retailers. The average cost appears to be around $30 on sale for a one month supply. There does not appear to be a money-back guarantee or any product samples available. Most of the highest-rated weight loss aids have a dedicated website for their product that thoroughly explains the ingredients and provides a satisfaction guarantee to show that the company stands behind the product.
According to some online retailers, the ingredients in Lean Xtreme are: 7-hydroxy-dehydroepiandrosterone (7-OH), maltodextrin, gelatin, silicon dioxide and magnesium stearate.
7-OH is the ingredient that is said to regulate cortisol production. Lean Xtreme does not appear to provide clinical studies that support this contention and we were unable to find any independent studies.
Lean Xtreme does not contain green tea extract, which disappointed us. Many of the highest-rated weight loss products contain this important proven ingredient. We may have had more faith in Lean Xtreme if they had provided a full description of the ingredients and their role in the product. According to the instructions, users are to take 1-2 capsules, 2-3 times per day. The first one is to be taken upon waking and the last one right before bed.
- Widely available at online retailers.
- No official online presence.
- No links to clinical studies supporting the effectiveness of the product or its main ingredient.
- No money-back guarantee offered.
With so many weight loss aids on the market today, it is very difficult to recommend one like Lean Xtreme that comes with so little information. We did not find any customer testimonials, before and after pictures, or evidence of testing. Consumers may wish to seek out a weight loss product that contains proven ingredients made by a company that stands behind their products with a money-back guarantee.
