This fat-burning product uses the Chinese herb bitter orange (Citrus aurantium) as a weight loss supplement. The goal of the product is to replace ephedrine and its fat-burning capacity with a natural herb. The Pro Image company claims Pro Lean offers “the best themogenic substitute for Ephedra.” The combination of green tea leaf extract, Siberian ginseng and bitter orange, according to Pro Image, produces no adverse side effects or blood pressure problems. Pro Lean strives to increase the body’s resting metabolic rate and stimulate the release of stored fat for energy production. This botanical promises to increase thermogenesis without stimulating the nervous system. Pro Image claims the Citrus aurantium component will not promote a wired or jittery feeling. Instead, it will enhance fat burning and suppress appetite. Current pricing is 29.00 dollars for a 60 capsule bottle. This site does not record daily dosage information.
- Bitter orange is a Chinese herb that has been used for years as a holistic medicine for treatment of nausea, indigestion and constipation.
- The ingredient listing includes caffeine. This would seem to contradict the assertion by Pro Image that there is no anxiety or jittery feeling.
- Reviews of bitter orange as a weight loss unit are less than enthusiastic. Body Building for You (bodybuildingforyou.com) states clinical research does not back up the claim of “no side effects.” There are cases of stroke and angina reported after using products containing Citrus Aurantium.
- There is limited to no scientific backing for the claims that bitter orange is an powerful fat burner.
While Pro Images states that the product Pro Lean provides a replacement for Ephedra, there little offered to support that statement. Independent reviews of this product are more skeptical. The ingredient listing contains some components known to raise blood pressure and cause anxiety, such as caffeine. Any alternative dietary supplement requires caution. Pro Lean might affect underlying health problems or cause drug interactions. While the jargon advertising the product seems plausible, Pro Image can give no evidence that scientific organizations back their product or its impact on weight loss.
