What You Should Know
Retiva is marketed as an energy boosting product that will in turn help you lose weight due to the amount of energy you will be burning throughout the day. The manufacturers of Retiva say that you will experience a burst of energy in a few minutes and that energy will continue to be released throughout the day. The major active ingredients in Retiva include amino acids such as L-Leucine and L-Isoleucine, which the manufacturers say will help with the weight loss process. Other major active ingredients such as Coleus Forskohlii and Yerba Mate, which are becoming increasingly popular in weight loss products, are also included in the product.
The ingredients in Retiva include L-Tyrosine, Taurine,L-Alanine, L-Valine, L-Methionine, L-Cysteine, L-Leucine,L-Isoleucine, L-Glutamine, Green Tea, Yerba Mate, Forsythia Suspensa Vahl,Coleus Forskohlii, Green Coffee and Schizonepeta Tenuifolia.
There does not appear to be an official website for Retiva, but it can be ordered online from a number of stores at the average price of $11.99. Retiva does contain a number of stimulants, so if you do decide to take Retiva you may want to reduce your coffee intake. There are a number of testimonials available for Retiva on the web. These testimonials seem to be mixed; some have said that the increased energy that it procures has resulted in weight loss, whilst others have said that the product has made them feel very jittery. It is probably prudent not to take this weight loss product if you suffer from any kind of heart or blood pressure disorder. Two of the ingredients in Retiva, Yerba Mate and Coleus Forskohlii, are both ingredients that are becoming increasingly popular in weight loss products. Coleus Forskohlii was traditionally used to treat heart and respiratory disorders, and is said by a number of manufacturers to have weight loss properties, however many diet experts do not agree with this conclusion. Yerba Mate is made into a coffee like drink by Indians native to Brazil and Peru, and is said to have stimulant properties similar to caffeine.
