What You Should Know
Triadalean is a weight loss supplement from Covaxil Laboratories. The official website for the supplement offers no real information at all. We find tons of claims, but these claims are not associated with an ingredient list. It’s like the company expects the dieter to read through the description and say OK, I’ll take a chance. With all the dangerous ingredients out there today and all the product scams, there is no way the dieter is going to make that choice.
The official website for Triadalean also fails to provide links to any of the clinical support mentioned in the brief description. We found it extremely interesting to see a phrase on the box about the STACK. This refers to the ECA stack that was once so popular when ephedra was legal. Today, ECA is not legal, so there is no STACK in Triadalean.
List of Ingredients
- Citrus (Bitter Orange) Fruit Extract
- Guarana Extract
- Phenylethylamine Phenylethan-2-Amine
- Phenylethylamine Methylbenzylamine
- Phenylethylamine 1-Phenylethylamine
- Theobromine Extract
When we did not find the complete ingredient list on the Triadalean website, we went in search of the list. Finally, we found the supplement for sale at GNC for $30 a bottle. GNC lists all the ingredients. There are four stimulants, three mood-boosters and one B vitamin. The B vitamin is added for a very interesting reason.
Caffeine, Bitter Orange, Guarana and Theobromine are all stimulants. Theobromine and guarana are typically standardized for caffeine, but there is no mention of standardization this time around. All ingredients are included in a proprietary blend containing 945 mg. The breakdown of each ingredient is not listed.
The three mood-altering ingredients are all phenylethylamines or derivatives of phenylethylamines. These ingredients are dangerous for people taking antidepressants and other mood-altering prescription medications. We found several warnings in this regard, including warnings on medical websites. At no time should a dieter with bipolar disorder take any supplement with phenylethylamine.
The final ingredient, Niacin, is added to make the dieter feel flush. That flush feeling is commonly used to make the dieter feel like the supplement is working.
- All ingredients are listed online.
- The supplement contains one proven ingredient.
- Contains multiple stimulants.
- Contains mood altering ingredients.
We are not fond of the proprietary blend that Triadalean uses. We’d like to know just how much of the 945 mg is stimulant and how much is the remaining five ingredients. There is a warning associated with using the supplement that dieters should heed. The warning states that there is 250 mg of xanthine mixture. Again, we have no idea what that means – caffeine is a xanthine, but it is not the only xanthine in the formula.
