What You Should Know
Phedra-Cut Ultra XT fat burner is designed to improve metabolism and speed up weight loss. The product description includes a complete ingredient list, but we are concerned about the product name. The word Phedra comes from the ingredient ephedra. If this product contains ephedra it is illegal for sale in the United States based upon the ban established by the FDA. The FDA now regulates all sales of ephedra.
List of Ingredients
- Caralluma Fimbriata
- Capsicum Extract
- Citrus Aurantium
- Banaba Extract
- Green Coffee Bean
- Natural Caffeine
- Green Tea Extract
- Yerba Mate
The USN-XT proprietary blend is packed with stimulants. Green coffee bean is commonly used to replace garcinia cambogia. Green coffee bean is a source of caffeine. Natural caffeine is the second ingredient in the formula. Of course, natural caffeine is a source of caffeine. Green tea extract is a third source of caffeine, but this time it comes in a proven metabolism-boosting ingredient. Yerba mate is the final caffeine source.
When you pack that many stimulants into one supplement, you have to attempt to reduce blood pressure rise that will inevitably occur. Phedra-Cut Ultra XT contains various forms of tyrosine. Tyrosine is thought to control blood pressure naturally.
Bioperine is added to increase the absorption of the other ingredients in the formula. Banaba helps control blood glucose response and hunger and Caralluma Fimbriata has some positive clinical studies for use as a diet supplement.
- All ingredients are listed online in label form.
- The product contains several proven ingredients.
- May help control hunger and increase energy.
- May contain too much caffeine for some dieters – 208 mg.
- Likely to cause negative side effects if the dieter does not usually take caffeine.
- May cause increase heart rate, increased blood pressure and jitters.
Overall, Phedra-Cut Ultra XT is a good supplement, but there are far too many stimulants in the formula. Most dieters are not used to taking supplements with heavy stimulation. There is a good chance the dieter will notice nausea, jitters and shakes when taking this product. The effects will be even worse if the dieter drinks caffeinated beverages with the formula. If you currently suffer from high blood pressure or heart problems, this supplement is not safe. The L-Tyrosine may decrease blood pressure slightly, but not enough to reduce the overall effect.
We suggest using a diet supplement with proven ingredients like green tea, caffeine and chromium and not multiple supplements.
