What You Should Know
Ripped Juice EX2 is a unique fat burner designed to help the bodybuilder shed extra weight and get ripped in the process. Getting ripped typically means shedding water weight so muscle definition shows through, but an extra layer of fat can also hinder the look of muscle definition. We did not see any diuretics upon first glance at the ingredient list, but that doesn’t mean there’s not a diuretic hidden amongst the stimulants.

Ripped Juice EX2 is a combination of stimulants, an appetite suppressant and amino acids. The stimulants found in the formula include caffeine, green tea, synephrine and yohimbe. All are proven to increase heart rate and blood pressure, but only caffeine and green tea are considered safe when used in the right quantities. These ingredients are part of a proprietary blend, so the dieter has no idea how much of each ingredient they are consuming.
The appetite suppressant in this formula is useless. Hoodia was once attached to a myth that South African hunters used the root of the cactus to suppress appetite on long hunts. When clinical research tested hoodia, the active ingredient P57 was metabolized by the liver long before it reached the brain to signal a feeling of fullness.
The geranamine is an ingredient that concerns use quite a bit. It is also known as 1, 3 dimethylamylamine and is known to cause heart palpitations. Dieters or bodybuilders with a history of heart problems should not take this ingredient.

Ripped Juice EX2 by Betancourt is packed full of stimulants. The average dieter may not have the resilience to caffeine and other stimulants to handle this sort of product, but bodybuilders tend to take higher concentrations of stimulants like caffeine so the effect of this supplement would have to be tested on a person-to-person basis. Other than the strong stimulant effect, there is little benefit to taking Ripped Juice EX2. It will not help the bodybuilder achieve that shredded look and it contains no diuretics.
