With the recent buzz about Octalean, we decided to conduct a more thorough review to see if the product is what it claims to be. We looked closely at the ingredient list, potential side effects, customer care and scientific research. We read through every comment and forum post we could find. Then, we summarized and condensed everything to give you the bottom line.
What is Octalean?
To begin with, Octalean is a weight-loss supplement designed for women, featured on Dr. Oz, and in Women’s Magazine. Just because the supplement received good publicity, however, doesn’t mean it is an effective solution. It contains sea buckthorn, EGCG, green tea extract, fucoxanthin, rhodiola extract, caffeine, raspberry ketones, capsicum extract, black pepper extract, panax ginseng extract, and digestive enzymes.
There is no official website, so we’ve no idea the company behind the formula. We think Core Health Innovations may make Octalean. You can buy it on websites like Amazon. We like the availability of product information and what some users have the say about it, but read on…
Fad Ingredients – “Science Isn’t There”
First thing; Octalean contains raspberry ketones. It was made popular when a television show touted it as the next big thing in weight-loss. Unfortunately, there is no human research that shows it helps you lose more.
”Fad ingredients are popular for weight-loss because of the exposure they’ve received in the media, but they aren’t actually effective.” said our Research Editor.
“I have been taking this for almost a month and haven’t noticed a difference in how I have felt, but it tastes alright.” said one user.
Side Effects – “Not Worth It?”
Even though the formula appears to be all-natural, some users report experiencing negative Octalean side effects including feelings of nausea, stomach pain, and diarrhea.
“I was nauseous, nervous, had a hard time sleeping and most of all had to go to the bathroom # 2 a lot! I was miserable,” said a customer.
Another user said, “This made me so sick. I only took 1 a day for 3 or 4 days; I’m home sick today as I was up all night dry heaving and with the worst stomach pains ever.”
Our research shows that if something has problems, like if it’s too expensive or causes side effects, dieters just aren’t going to have a high chance of success. If Octalean doesn’t live up to the expectations of users, that’s where the problems start.
The Science – “Solid?”
Octalean doesn’t provide any links to published clinical research. There is some science to support the effectiveness of some of these ingredients, like green tea and caffeine, but without knowing how much of each is in the formula, it’s hard to say the science is really there to support it. We like proof here at DietSpotlight and this supplement doesn’t come with enough to alleviate our concerns.
The Bottom Line – Does Octalean Work?
Have we already ordered our first bottle? Even though this product got Dr. Oz’s seal of approval, users say it doesn’t work, and has caused a number of side effects. This, combined with the lack of real clinical research, leads us to believe there are better options on the market that Octalean. Our reservations only increase when you take into account there’s no official website or information on the company behind the product.
Trying to shed a few pounds? We suggest you go with a scientifically tested weight-loss supplement and a healthy balanced diet and regular exercise routine. Check out customer reviews to see just how successful users have been.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is Leptigen. It contains four clinically-tested ingredients known for their fat burning power. Throughout our research, we couldn’t find many negative mentions of side effects and we saw tons of users who reported experiencing solid, measurable results.
The makers of Leptigen are so certain their product works, they’re providing new customers with a Special Trial Offer, which we love to see.
