What You Should Know
LeCheek Nutrition is the creator of Melt Xtreme, but the company also produces the fat burner Melt. Melt is the result of two years of research and formulation, but the end product is not safe for all dieters. We are unsure when diuretics became diet ingredients, but they are not associated with increased metabolism or increased weight loss so they should not be included in a fat burner unless targeted at bodybuilders during the cutting phase of the sport. Diuretics are needed to counteract the effect of creatine and shed excess water before a competition.
List of Ingredients
- Garcinia Cambogia
- Uva Ursi
- 1,3 Dimethylamylamine
- Dandelion Root
- Green Tea Extract
- Cayenne Pepper
The ingredient list for Melt does not read much different from Melt Extreme by the same company. Guarana, synephrine, garcinia cambogia, green tea and 1,3 dimethylamylamine are all stimulants. Any one of these ingredients is strong enough to increase heart rate, let alone all of these ingredients packed into one supplement.
Garcinia is associated with possible liver damage and dimethylamylamine may cause heart palpitations. LeCheek Nutrition should have taken these effects into consideration before including them with other stimulants that could increase the risk of negative side effects.
Uva ursi and dandelion root are diuretics. These ingredients are used to push water out of the body. Bodybuilders take diuretics before competition, but dieters do not need to take diuretics to lose weight. Long-term use of diuretics can lead to chronic constipation, heart problems, dry skin and other negative side effects simply not worth the few ounces the dieter may lose from increased urination.
- Contains green tea extract – clinically proven to offer a long list of health benefits.
- All ingredients are listed on the official website.
- The dieter can order the product online.
- Contains more than one stimulant.
- 1,3 Dimethylamylamine may cause heart palpitations.
- Diuretics should not be used in conjunction with strong stimulants.
- May cause constipation, water loss and dehydration.
- Garcinia cambogia may be associated with liver damage.
All it takes is one bad ingredient to make an entire supplement bad. In this case, Melt contains multiple ingredients with questionable backgrounds. There are proven weight loss ingredients that don’t carry the risk of heart palpitations or liver damage. We suggest finding a supplement that is both safe and effective. Dieters can look for moderate amounts of caffeine and large amounts of green tea – even in decaffeinated form.
