What You Should Know
Metabolism, energy and fat burn are all important parts of losing weight. MytoSlim claims to increase all with one safe and effective supplement. MytoSlim makes some extraordinary claims like increasing weight loss by 200% over diet and exercise. The majority of the information on the MytoSlim website focuses on selling multi-bottle packs in order to save the dieter money. If the MytoSlim formula is as strong as the company claims, that could be a good thing.
List of Ingredients
3-Acetyl-7-Oxo-Dehydroepiandrosterone, Panax Ginseng Root Extract 20%, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12, Biotin, and Pantothenic Acid.
3-Acetyl-7-Oxo-Dehydroepiandrosterone is the scientific name for 7-KETO DHEA. DHEA is a supplement used in years past to improve weight loss. Over time, the estrogenic and androgenic effects of the ingredient lead to more harmful side effects than helpful ones. DHEA is converted to 7-KETO in the body and thus 3-Acetyl-7-Oxo-Dehydroepiandrosterone was developed. According to some scientific studies, 7-KETO DHEA offers all the weight loss and metabolism benefits of DHEA without the side effects. The trouble with most of these studies is the fact that they have been performed on animals or in a lab. No human studies support weight loss claims of products like MytoSlim.
The remaining ingredients on the MytoSlim list are nothing to be excited about. B vitamins are commonly used to increase energy. More energy could mean higher metabolism, but B vitamins are only absorbed into the body on an as needed basis. The left over vitamins are flushed out of the body within hours. MytoSlim is offered at $49.99 per bottle plus $7.99 shipping and handling. Ordering more bottles reduces the per bottle price via a buy one get one offer. For instance, two bottles can be purchased for $99.98 and $9.99 shipping and handling. With this order, the dieter gets one bottle free. Ordering four bottles or more gives the dieters the ability to reorder bottles at only $24.99 in the future.
- 7-KETO DHEA has been proven to increase fat burn in a lab setting and in animal tests.
- The $49.99 price is higher than other supplements with similar ingredient lists.
- No human studies support the claims of 200% more weight lost.
- B vitamins are not an effective way to increase metabolism.
MytoSlim does not back up the claims of losing 3 times more weight while taking the supplement. Clinical trials are great when they can support more than just an ingredient used in a supplement. Petri dish and animal studies do not support increased weight loss in humans. MytoSlim may need to rethink promoting a supplement so strongly when there is no proof it actually works to meet the claims.
