What You Should Know
Nubeau Products include five supplements promoted for a variety of natural effects. Nutritropin is a male age-defying supplement and Epoque is the female version of that product. Rejuvital works to combat stress and provide energy and Testro-V supports healthy testosterone levels in men. Hydroxydrene is the only fitness product listed by Nubeau.
List of Ingredients
Hydroxydrene: Garcinia cambogia fruit extract (60%(-)hydroxycitric acid), Safflower oil (Conjugated linoleic acid 680 mg), St. John’s Wort herbal extract (flowering tops) (0.3% hypercin), Alpha-Lipoic Acid, Gymnema Sylvestre Leaf Extract (standardized), Bitter Melon Fruit Extract (special), Fenugreek Seed Extract, N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine and Vanadium (as Vanadyl Sulfate).
Nubeau seems keen on including at least 70 ingredients in each of their supplements. Of these 70 ingredients, green tea is one that is included in every one but Hydroxydrene. Green tea is a proven weight loss ingredient that can increase metabolism substantially. If Hydroxydrene is the Nubeau attempt at a fitness supplement, why not include green tea?
The other ingredients in the list are said to promote carb blocking, fat blocking and fat burn. Safflower oil is listed as the carb blocker. Safflower oil is the most common source of conjugated linoleic acid or CLA. CLA was once that next big ingredient, but research studies proved weight loss was not a proven side effect of taking the ingredient even over long-term studies. Most nutritional companies refer to animal studies, specifically rat and mouse studies, when they note increased weight loss while taking CLA.
Fat blockers make up the majority of the Nubeau Hydroxydrene. Gymnema Sylvestre, Alpha-Lipoic Acid, N-Acetyl L-Cysteine and Fenugreek are all supposed fat blockers. Unfortunately, for Nubeau, there are not proven ingredients that will block fat without a prescription.
Fat burners are proven to boost metabolism and increase calorie expenditure in the body. Nubeau includes Garcinia Cambogia and Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) in the thermogenic support complex. Even though Garcinia is used quite often in weight loss supplements, claims of increased fat burn and decreased appetite are unsubstantiated. Hydroxycitric Acid, found in Garcinia, can be toxic to the liver. Testicular atrophy may also be a side effect of taking products with HCA.
Nubeau sells Hydroxydrene and Testro-V for $39.95 per box. All other supplements sell for $79.95 for a one-month supply.
- Green tea is an ingredient in most Nubeau products.
- Including more than 70 ingredients in most supplements could confuse the dieter.
- Most of the Nubeau products are expensive.
- The only supplement without green tea is the fat burning supplement.
- HCA, in Hydroxydrene by Nubeau, can have toxic side effects.
- None of the ingredients in Hydroxydrene is proven to increase weight loss.
Nubeau has several long lists of ingredients marketed as elixirs and age-defying supplements. In the fitness area, Hydroxydrene does not compare to other products on the market.
