What You Should Know
Many supplements use name recognition to promote products. Weider is no stranger to the world of sports nutrition and supplementation. Beginning in 1936, the Weider brand has been linked to nutrition, sporting events and supplements. Weider Dynamic Fat Burners is a product in a long line of fat burners with high claims and no scientific proof.
List of Ingredients
Chromium (As Chromium Picolinate), Green Tea Extract (Camellia Sinensis) (Leaf), Kola Nut Extract (Cola Acuminata) (Nut), Caffeine (As Caffeine Anhydrous, Caffeine Citrate And From Kola Nut Extract), Cinnamon Powder (Cinnamomum Cassia)(Bark), Cayenne Powder (Capsicum Frutescens)(Fruit)
Weider Dynamic Fat Burners is labeled as a product designed to get rid of fat and boost metabolism; the end result being assistance in a proper weight management program. We have found discrepancies in those claims. There are no scientific studies supporting any of the claims made from Weider Dynamic Fat Burners.
Upon reviewing the ingredients, we found healthy ingredients in levels that do not stimulate weight loss. The inclusion of chromium helps reduce blood sugar levels which reduce hunger. With hunger no longer a factor, weight loss could occur. Green Tea is included and has been scientifically proven to promote weight loss. The concern we saw was the minimal amount of green tea is not an effective amount.
Caffeine is added in small amounts and raises the heart beat. The inclusion of caffeine in Weider Dynamic Fat Burners is equivalent to one cup of coffee. The effects claimed will not be seen if dieters take the required dosage. Again, with such small amounts, weight loss may not be promoted.
Supplements with diuretics pull water from the body and in essence cause weight loss. Diuretics also present dangers to the body by causing dehydration and lowered potassium levels. A key ingredient in Weider Dynamic Fat Burners is Kola Nut, a diuretic. Products which contain diuretics typically have potassium added, Weider Dynamic Fat Burners does not add potassium.
The final two ingredients, Cinnamon and Cayenne have been studied to boost metabolism and lower blood sugar levels. Unfortunately, Weider Dynamic Fat Burners does not provide research studies. Also, if the studies did exist, the minimal amounts of either ingredient would not promote metabolism boosting or a lowered blood sugar level.
- Includes chromium, proven to help reduce blood sugar levels.
- Green tea has been proven to promote weight loss.
- Available at online retailers.
- Ingredient list readily available online.
- Multiple stimulants may cause nausea, vomiting and upset stomach.
- Kola Nut Extract acts as a diuretic.
Weight loss product backed by a well known name in fitness does not equate to an effective weight loss supplement. Although Weider Dynamic Fat Burners provide the dieter with scientifically proven ingredients such as chromium, green tea and caffeine, the addition of Kola nut counteracts the effects by acting as a diuretic. After research, we have concluded dieters will not maximize their weight loss goals by taking Weider Dynamic Fat Burners.
