There are vitamins and amino acids, also common in protein shakes. It isn’t until the end of the ingredient list that unique ingredients for a protein shake are added.
Garcinia cambogia is a fat burner. This ingredient may be linked with liver damage, so dieters need to be cautious when taking a supplement with this ingredient. Safflower oil is a source of CLA or conjugated linoleic acid. CLA may promote healthy lean muscle mass.
The supplement also contains phenylalanine. Phenylalanine is a mood boosting ingredient. Dieters with a history of mental illness should not take this supplement or supplements including phenylalanine.
