With so many ingredients, Xenadrine Ripped may be a bit confusing for the average dieter. While the product description claims weight loss benefits, most of the ingredients appear to be focused more on muscle gain. Gaining muscle and losing weight are typically two different desires. Weight loss requires one set of ingredients and muscle gain – another. We believe combining the two leaves out a specific segment of the population that is looking from an effective fat burner or appetite suppressant for weight loss as they may be intimidated by the label.
Caffeine is a known metabolism booster. We like the fact that this ingredient is included as clinical studies prove it works, but there are no clinical study links listed. The product description does reference two studies on some of the active ingredients in the supplement. In one study, users lose about 20 pounds while the placebo group lost only two pounds. This is a huge difference, but dieters need more than claims, they need proof so before and after photos or a clinical study link should be included with all literature. There is no mention of Xenadrine Ripped on the official website.
- Caffeine may help improve weight loss by boosting metabolism.
- Too many ingredients with scientific names by confuse dieters.
- No appetite suppressants.
- Formulated for bodybuilders not dieters.
Dieters looking for a strong fat burner to help them lose weight will be wasting their time with Xenadrine Ripped. As the name suggests, the supplement is suggested for bodybuilders who want to create that “ripped” look. The caffeine is a good ingredient for weight loss, but it is not supported with healthy ingredients to promote weight loss. Caffeine is used in this supplement for energy only. All ingredients are included in proprietary blends, so the dieter has no idea how much of the ingredients are included so the efficacy cannot be proven.
