VPX Sports Review
What You Should Know
VPX Sports is a supplement company that appears to be primarily focused on body building and fitness products. However, they also offer a line of fat burners that includes energy drinks and supplements. The President of VPX Sports, Jack Owoc, founded the company in 1993 with the intention of producing the highest quality of sports supplements on the market. Customer interested in VPX Sports products can buy them directly from the company website or shop a variety of online retailers to find the VPX product line.
VPX Sports provides a website that is easy to navigate and chock full of information. Unfortunately, that information did not appear to include clinical research to support the effectiveness of the formulas or customer testimonials backing up the claims of the products. We were pleased to find that VPX provides complete ingredient information and dosing instructions for their products, since these fact are essential if consumers are to assess the safety and effectiveness of each product formula. For the sake of this review, we will take a closer look at one of the VPX Sports fat burning products; Meltdown.
List of Ingredients
According to the VPX Sports website, the ingredients in Meltdown include caffeine anhydrous, a-MTTA, yerba mate, 3′-5′-cAMP, synephrine, methylphenylethylamine, phenylethylamine, yohimbine and methyl-hordenine. The product also contains a number of filler ingredients.
Our first concern is with the long list of filler ingredients in this formula, which may cut down on the effectiveness of the active ingredients. We prefer to see a formula that contains just a handful of potent, active substances, since this type of combination usually produces the best results. A number of these ingredients are quite common in weight loss supplements, such as yerba mate, caffeine, yohimbine and synephrine. While yohimbine, synephrine and caffeine are all considered thermogenic ingredients with fat burning capabilities, they may not be the most potent options available. In addition, the combination of synephrine and caffeine may cause unpleasant side effects in some people. The other ingredients, while highly touted on the company website, do not seem to have as much clinical evidence to back up their claims as weight loss ingredients.
At the time of this review, 40 servings of Meltdown cost $64.95 on the company website. This is a rather high price to pay for a weight loss supplement, especially when we were unable to find information about a return policy or money back guarantee.
- Some VPX products contain proven thermogenic ingredients.
- The company has been in business for some time.
- We did not see formulas containing an appetite suppressant.
- At least one formula may cause unpleasant side effects for some users.
- The products are expensive.
- We could not find a return policy or money back guarantee.
There are many proven fat burners on the market today; some are created for bodybuilders and others made for dieters. The VPX Sports line appears to be primarily focused on the former. We believe consumers will be better off to find weight loss supplements designed with their unique needs in mind.
