Many of the supplements produced by NuCare are geared toward fitness and muscle building goals. Products include nitrous oxide, L-glutamine, testosterone and energy stacks. The only supplements offered by NuCare that could be considered fat burners are CLA, or conjugated linoleic acid, PowerPak and PhenolFire.
CLA has been studied and proven to increase fat burn in lab mice and rats. Human studies have not been conclusive in regards to fat burning potential. Some studies have even linked the use of CLA to potential health risks including insulin resistance. Obese and overweight people tend to be in a higher risk group for diabetes, taking a supplement that could increase that risk even further is not a healthy choice.
NuCare PowerPak for Men and Women contains green tea, which is the only proven ingredient for weight loss found in NuCare products. Green tea has been tested in several studies and has been proven to increase fat burn and overall health.
PhenolFire offers a short list of ingredients with quite a bang. Synephrine is a stimulant that comes with a long list of potential heart related side effects. Caffeine, another stimulant, works wonders at burning fat, but when added to a product with synephrine can cause increased potential problems.
Prices for NuCare products vary dramatically. The least expensive will fall in the $20 range with the most expensive being the RecoverMax at $49.95.
