What You Should Know
U4EA is a product by Pure Life that promises to increase mental clarity and improve muscle performance in the gym. It also detoxes the body for overall improved general health. U4EA does not contain caffeine and will not make you feel jittery, according to the description. We could not find an official website for the Pure Life company or U4EA.
List of Ingredients
Phenibut, L-Theanine, L-Tyrosine, L-Glycine, Taurine, Sceletium Tortuosum, Bioperine.
The first ingredient in the supplement is phenibut. This is not an ingredient we see very often in weight loss products. Phenibut is prescribed in Russia as a neuropsychotropic medication. There are claims that the supplement works like an anti-psychotic which crosses into the brain through the blood / brain barrier. Any herbal supplement that affects brain function by directly impacting the brain may be a bit too intense for the average dieter trying to shed a few pounds.
Sceletium Tortuosum is another ingredient of great concern. This ingredient is known to affect mood and relieve anxiety. That is two ingredients that affect how the dieter feels and no ingredients affecting how fat is burned in the body. Higher doses of the medication can cause euphoric effects. This ingredient could cause negative side effects in dieters who are taking anti-depressant medications or other mood altering medications.
Bioperine is another name for black pepper. Black pepper has been shown to increase fat burning and metabolism, but not on the level that will greatly impact weight loss.
The remaining ingredients work on a muscular level. These must be the ingredients that focus on muscle performance and muscle recovery, as stated in the supplement description.
There are some discrepancies in the information provided for U4EA. The product claims to induce deep sleep when taken before bedtime, yet it can be taken before a workout to calm the dieter down. Calming down could theoretically reduce heart rate which could adversely affect fat burn as heart rate should decrease as well.
None of the listed ingredients have a detoxing effect though U4EA claims to detox the body during sleep.
U4EA sells for $23.99 per 45 capsules. A single dose is four capsules so one bottle would last only 11 days. Three bottles per month would cost more than $70.
- Product ingredients are easy to find online.
- Two of the ingredients are mood altering and may cause euphoria.
- None of the ingredients will significantly increase fat burn.
The two mood altering ingredients are enough for us to share a word of caution. These ingredients will change mood and one passes through the blood brain barrier to directly affect the brain. Weight loss supplements typically include fat burning ingredients no psychotropic herbs.
