Meta-Burn XTP Review
What You Should Know
Meta-Burn XTP is a fat burner that claims to be the next generation in weight loss supplements. The ingredient list is nothing more than caffeine and more caffeine with some tyrosine thrown in to reduce blood pressure. The company tries to add thyroid support, which is useless if the dieter has no thyroid problems. Green tea is added to the mix and the quantity is superb, but it a straight green tea supplement is much less expensive and could have the same effect as Mea-Burn XTP.
List of Ingredients
- Freeze Dried Bovine Thyroid Extract
- Monolodo Tyrosine
- Green Tea Extract
- Coleus Forskohlii
- Cayenne Pepper
We immediately noticed the huge dose of green tea (485 mg). That green tea is standardized for EGCG. According to the description for Meta-Burn XTP there is 291 mg of EGCG in the formula. EGCG and green tea are proven to boost metabolism so the dieter can rest assured they will notice a difference in weight loss if this product is taken as part of a reduced calorie diet and exercise program.
The TyroBurn portion of the supplement is less thrilling. The ingredients in TyroBurn support healthy thyroid function. The thyroid plays an important part in weight maintenance, weight loss and weight gain, but not all dieters need thyroid support. The freeze dried bovine thyroid extract will have no effect on thyroid function. The body will simply metabolize it as food.
Octopamine is an ingredient dieters should be wary of when taking diet supplements. It is found in bitter orange and is also known as a type of phenylethylamine – this is a one-two stimulant/mood-altering punch. There are no clinical studies supporting long-term use of octopamine. There are studies proving it helps the body release fat, but that fat is likely absorbed by other cells.
- Ingredients are listed online.
- Contains green tea and EGCG.
- Will likely boost metabolism.
- Octopamine is known to cause a rise in blood pressure when taken with stimulants.
- May cause changes in mood.
- Contains thyroid supporting ingredients – not useful for all dieters.
Meta-Burn XTP contains just the right amount of green tea and EGCG. That is the best part of the supplement. When the company added octopamine, however, it also added a long list of potential side effects. Dieters should be extremely cautious when taking a supplement with octopamine and stimulants as it can cause an unsafe rise in blood pressure.
