What You Should Know
Metabolift is a stimulant weight loss supplement designed to promote metabolism and reduce hunger. Each serving contains 120 mg of caffeine. The dieter takes three servings per day, so that is a total caffeine intake of 360 mg. This information is revealed in the product description, not on the product label, so the dieter holding a bottle of Metabolift may not know how much caffeine is included per serving – a bad idea for the manufacturer.
Twinlab offers a long product description and direct ordering, but the customer is not given the pleasure of testimonials of before and after photos. If a product contains proven ingredients, we have a good idea how it will work in the human body, but testimonials are often more important to dieters than clinical information. This is especially true when the ingredients are included in proprietary form. Proprietary means the total amount of some ingredients is not revealed on the product website.
List of Ingredients
- Vitamin D
- Green Tea Extract

- Bilberry Extract

Finding information on Metabolift was rather simple. The product is listed for sale on multiple websites, including the official website for the product by Twinlab. We found an ingredient list and several of the ingredients are proven to have a positive impact on weight loss or overall health, but the use of proprietary blends is a bit disheartening. Dieters need to know how much caffeine, green tea, chromium and other ingredients are included in the formula. If there is too much of any stimulant or combination of stimulants, the dieter may feel negative side effects. On the other hand, if there is too little of a proven ingredient, it will not work to boost metabolism.
One bottle of Metabolift contains just 60 tablets. This is normally a 30 day supply, but in this case the dieter is supposed to take 6 tablets per day so one bottle lasts only 10 days. Either the company needs to pack more into each tablet or offer a larger bottle. The total cost of using this supplement per month is more than $55. This would normally be okay, but the dieter must buy three bottles just to make it through one month.
- Contains caffeine – proven to boost metabolism.
- Contains green tea standardize for EGCG.
- Acai is a strong antioxidant that may reduce free radical damage.
- Contains chromium – proven to help control blood glucose.
- Guarana and caffeine together could cause negative side effects.
- There are multiple stimulants in the formula.
- Many of the ingredients are included in proprietary blends.
Metabolift may include some proven ingredients, but Twinlab does a horrible job supporting the supplement or offering dieters important information on the product.
