What You Should Know
Zanocap claims to expand in the stomach taking up space so the dieter feels full instead of feeling hungry. According to the product description, the only way to lose weight is to physically be full and that is what Zanocap will do. There is no mention of a free trial, which could help the company gain a bit of support from dieters not sure whether they want to pay for another supplement making the same claims. We believe this supplement is going to include glucomannan, which is commonly marketed as a fiber that blows up in the stomach to prevent hunger.
List of Ingredients
Xanthum Gum, Chinese Red Ginseng Root, Astragalus Root, Cayenne Fruit, Echinacea Whole Plant, Fo Ti Root, Golden Seal Root, Guarana Seed, Panax Ginseng Root & Extract and Siberian Ginseng Root.
When we assumed glucomannan, maybe we were aiming too high. Zanocap, formerly known as Zetacap, contains Xanthum Gum commonly used as a food thickener. While there is plenty of information about how Xanthum Gum is used in the food, cosmetic and oil industry, there is no mention of weight loss in any literature we could find.
Skipping a few ingredients, we find a stimulant. Zanocap contains Guarana Seed, but the supplement claims “it’s not a stimulant.” Now we are truly confused by this supplement.
Going back to the ingredient list, cayenne fruit is an up and coming ingredient showing promise as a fat burner or supplemental ingredient in a proven weight loss supplement. It works by physically increasing heat in the stomach, but can cause gastro-intestinal and digestive side effects similar to those suffered after eating hot peppers.
Echinacea whole plant is another interesting ingredient. Echinacea is typically taken on an as needed basis to increase immune system function. Long-term use is not the common role of this ingredient and there are no known weight loss benefits.
Zanocap sells for $47.00 per bottle. While there is a phone number listed for customer service, the contact link at the bottom of the official website does not work. As a matter of fact, none of the links work aside from the Order link.
- The price is lower than typical fat burners.
- No ingredients are listed on the official website.
- There is a stimulant in the formula despite claims to the contrary.
- Xanthum Gum is not a fiber.
There are too many discrepancies with Zanocap for us to suggest the supplement to dieters. When a supplement claims to be one thing and the ingredient list tells another story, typically the dieter should continue the search for a proven weight loss or fat burning supplement. We suggest green tea and chromium be included in the ingredient list.
