Tru Ultra Lean Review
What You Should Know
Tru Ultra Lean claims to be a powerful fat burner that claims the dieter can lose up to 17 pounds taking the supplement. Making specific weight loss claims simply means the company behind the supplement wants to sell more product – there is no guarantee any dieter will lose weight taking a supplement no matter how strong or proven the ingredient profile. The product description also claims dieters can lose weight without changing how they eat or how they move – you do not need to diet or exercise to lose weight, according to Tru Ultra Lean. Again, these are false claims as diet and exercise are the cornerstones of successful, long-term weight loss.
List of Ingredients
- Raspberry Ketones
- Green Coffee Beans
- African Mango
- Green Tea
Raspberry ketones are a wildly popular weight loss ingredient right now, but not because clinical trials have produced weight loss results in humans. There were a couple of animal trials that showed promise, but trials have not shown success in overweight and obese dieters. Dr. Mehmet Oz backs raspberry ketones for weight loss, which is likely why supplement manufacturers are jumping on the bandwagon.
Green coffee beans are a source of chlorogenic acids. We stumbled on one study claiming green coffee beans worked to help dieters lose weight, but the study involved just 16 participants. All participants exercised daily and calories were kept under control though no weight loss diet was prescribed. The average caloric intake was 2,400 calories, but dieters burned at least 400 calories per day with exercise. They were also told to drink lots of water when taking the supplements because of the bitter taste, increasing water consumption during the study. The study was funded by the company selling a green coffee bean extract supplement making the results irrelevant.
Green tea is a strong antioxidant with numerous clinical studies proving the supplement may help dieters lose weight or improve overall health. Green tea has been around for thousands of years and it is considered safe for most dieters. Green tea contains caffeine and EGCG, both proven to boost metabolism.
- All ingredients in Tru Ultra Lean are listed online.
- Green tea may help spark metabolism and improve weight loss.
- May contain too much caffeine for some dieters.
- Raspberry ketones and green coffee bean are not proven to aid weight loss.
We are not sold on Tru Ultra Lean. The biggest problem is the product description that makes unrealistic claims of weight loss without diet and exercise – particularly that dieters can lose up to 17 pounds taking the supplement. Most of the ingredients have no clinical support and none of the ingredient amounts are listed so dieters have no idea if they are taking enough green tea to promote health benefits.
