What You Should Know
Metabolife Ultra is a caffeine based fat burner manufactured and distributed by Metabolife. The company claims Metabolife Ultra can help a dieter reach their weight loss goals when taken in combination with a healthy diet and regular exercise plan. Metabolife Ultra also claims to curb hunger with unique ingredients.
List of Ingredients
Calcium, Chromium, HCA, Potassium, SuperCitrimax, Caffeine and Coenzyme Q10.
The ingredient list is not new and exciting as the company claims. SuperCitrimax is commonly used as an appetite suppressant and HCA, which Metabolife Ultra claims to be clinically proven, is not linked to any clinical trials from the official website. Caffeine is the most trusted and effective ingredient in the blend and has been proven to increase metabolism and fat burning, but again there are no links to appropriate supportive trials.
Metabolife Ultra also claims to increase energy and we can clearly see where this claim comes from with caffeine on the ingredient list. Caffeine does tend to increase energy in short bouts, which could be why the dieter must take two capsules, three times a day. A constant barrage of caffeine in the body will consistently be supplied. Caffeine is part of a proprietary blend, however, so the dieter has no idea how much caffeine is really included. According to the information provided, each serving has the same amount of caffeine as about two cups of coffee. Taking Metabolife Ultra three times a day would be the same as drinking six cups of coffee. Too much caffeine can cause sleeplessness, nervousness and jitters.
Health warnings are also provided by Metabolife Ultra for people who may be sensitive to caffeine, women who are pregnant or nursing and people with high blood pressure or heart related problems. Warnings of this nature are helpful, but may leave some dieters questioning the safety of the weight loss product.
Metabolife Ultra sells for $29.99 for 90 capsules. At the suggested dosage, one bottle will only last two weeks so the product costs around $60.00 per month for continued use. After taking a product with high levels of caffeine for an extended period of time, caffeine dependence may occur which could lead to headaches and other withdrawal symptoms if the dieter stops taking the product.

Metabolife Ultra contains no new and exciting ingredients. The product is basically a caffeine supplement with SuperCitrimax throw in to help curb hunger. SuperCitrimax is used in a variety of diet pills and may work to decrease hunger a bit, but the effects of the caffeine will be far more intense.
