What You Should Know
Mountain Home Nutritionals is a supplement company for Dr. David Williams. There is a long list of supplements to improve health or naturally treat specific conditions. For weight loss, Dr. David Williams suggests taking TonaLean-3. The product previously promoted by the company was Tonalin. Tonalin contained only conjugated linoleic acid, but TonaLean-3 contains more than one ingredient. There are no free trials offered through Mountain Home Nutritionals. Mountain Home Nutritionals offers a 100% money back guarantee. If dieters are not happy with the results they can return the supplement and receive a credit less shipping and handling.
List of Ingredients
Conjugated Linoleic Acid, Green Tea Phytosome (Green Tea Extract and Phosphatidylcholine Complex) and Chromium Polynicotinate.
Let’s start with conjugated linoleic acid. When Tonalin was first introduced, safflower oil was associated with increased fat burn. Later, studies revealed the weight loss benefits associated with the product were not as spectacular as supplement companies wanted the dieter to believe. Side effects associated with conjugated linoleic acid include stomach discomfort, diarrhea, gas and bloating.
Green Tea Extract is a fantastic ingredient. TonaLean-3 includes 300 mg of green tea per serving, which is another bonus. Most supplements will only include a small bit of green tea and claim benefits associated with much higher doses. Green tea is proven to increase metabolism and fat burn along with many other health benefits. It is a safe ingredient that may increase energy.
Chromium may help control blood sugar levels. Why is this important to the dieter? Eating carbohydrates causes a rise in blood glucose. The body digests the carbs and then the extra glucose is not needed so levels crash. This crash signals the brain that an easy source of energy is gone so hunger kicks in so more carbs will be eaten. Chromium may help keep blood glucose levels more even so that hunger signal never happens. We love the fact that TonaLean-3 thought about hunger in addition to fat burning.
TonaLean-3 sells from Mountain Home Nutritionals $59.98 per 20 day supply. This is a bit higher than we expected from a green tea, chromium, CLA supplement. Buying the ingredients individually will cost less than buying this supplement.
- All ingredients are listed by Mountain Home Nutritionals.
- TonaLean-3 contains green tea and chromium.
- Green tea may increase weight loss.
- Chromium may reduce hunger.
- CLA is associated with stomach related side effects.
- The price is TOO high for the ingredients listed.
Mountain Home Nutritionals TonaLean-3 offers two GREAT ingredients and then messes up the supplement with CLA. Conjugated linoleic acid can cause pain and discomfort for some dieters so we are reserving our recommendation for this product. If the green tea and chromium were the only two ingredient and the price was lower, the supplement may be near perfect.
