What You Should Know
Xenadrine Ultra is the newest supplement in the Xenadrine line of fat burners and weight loss aids. The new supplement claims improved weight loss, increased energy and faster metabolism. Testimonials are the major focus of the official website, but these are taken with a grain of salt. Xenadrine has been cited in the past for paying dieters to give positive testimonials for its supplements, so the ingredient list needs to support fat burning and not dieters claiming extraordinary weight loss.
List of Ingredients
Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Yerba Mate, Guarana Seed, Caffeine, Damiana Leaf, Gamma-oryzanol, L-histidine, Campesterol, Beta-sitosterol and Para-amino-benzoic acid.
Xenadrine currently only promotes three supplements, though the company behind Xenadrine Ultra has formulated and sold many more. The description of Xenadrine Ultra is not without clinical claims. According to information on the official website, three ingredients used in Xenadrine Ultra have been proven to increase weight loss – Yerba Mate, Guarana and Damiana. Xenadrine Ultra does not include caffeine on the proven list of ingredients, but it has been proven to increase metabolism.
Guarana, caffeine, yerba mate and Damiana leaf are all stimulants. Overstimulation is always a chance taken when choosing from fat burning supplements, but Xenadrine Ultra certainly packs more stimulants into one supplement than other comparable products. When too many stimulants are used to increase heart rate, the dieter can feel shaky and nauseous when taking the product. This can lead to stopping supplementation and thus failure to lose weight yet again.
Xenadrine Ultra suggests taking one capsule 15 minutes before breakfast, lunch and dinner for the first three days and then two capsules before breakfast, lunch and dinner from day four and beyond. This gradual increase in capsules allows the dieter to get used to the stimulation and caffeine boost from the supplement. Xenadrine Ultra is not for sale from the website, but can be found online for $21.99 per bottle. Each bottle contains 60 capsules and when taken at the highest suggested dosage the bottle will only last 10 days. One month’s supply would then cost more than $60.
- Several ingredients are proven to increase metabolism.
- Multiple stimulants can lead to racing heart rate and adverse side effects.
- Xenadrine Ultra costs more than other fat burners.
- Xenadrine has been accused of paying for testimonials in the past.
There are simply too many stimulants in Xenadrine Ultra for many dieters. Four of the main ingredients are stimulants and that can only lead to side effects including racing heart rate, nausea and jitters. Sleeplessness can also occur if Xenadrine Ultra is taken within five hours of bedtime. When choosing a fat burner, the dieter should always look at all products formulated by the manufacturer. If there are multiple fat burners with the same name, as is the case with Xenadrine, the dieter should wonder if any of the products are the best available fat burner.
