The majority of the ingredients in Shaklee Cinch are vitamins commonly found in daily vitamin. If dieters start this program, they should not take their normal daily vitamin as this supplement will replace that one. The three ingredients included in the Thermogenic Proprietary Blend are Green Tea, Evodia Extract and Purple Corn Extract.
Green Tea is proven to increase weight loss and there is tons of clinical evidence to back up these claims. Evodia Extract has been tested with weight loss benefits in animals with some positive results, but no human trials have been completed. Purple Corn Extract is an antioxidant with no weight loss benefits. As a weight loss supplement, Cinch falls far short. Shaklee does not publish information on weight loss support or testimonials from users who have lost weight on the Cinch program.
The Shaklee Cinch Start Kit sells for $228.00. Other Shaklee products range in price from less than $10 each to more than $200 depending on the supplement or product.
- Shaklee Cinch offers a good vitamin supplement.
- Shaklee is not dedicated to weight loss.
- No weight loss support is provided on the website.
- The price is far higher than most dieters will be willing to spend.
Shaklee may be a healthy living company, but the weight loss area of the site leaves much to be desired. There is only one supplement line, Cinch, dedicated toward weight loss. That plan is expensive and requires replacing meals with shakes and bars. The supplement included with Cinch contains green tea, a great choice, but that is the only ingredient proven to increase weight loss. We suggest taking a proven weight loss supplement and changing up to a healthy eating plan at home.
