Zenalean Pro Review
What You Should Know
Zenalean Pro is a weight loss fat burner that claims to contain ephedra. Ephedra, in the most popular form, cannot be used by supplement companies for weight loss. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) pulled ephedra from the diet market when negative side effects and at least one death was reported after a dieter used an ephedra-based fat burner. There is a chance that the ephedra extract in the formula is another extract of the same plant, but it is unlikely that the extract is the classic form of ephedra.
List of Ingredients
- Guarana Extract
- Ephedra Extract
- Bitter Orange
- Geranium Extract
- Beta Phenylethylamine HCL
- White Willow Bark Extract
- Ginger Root
- Acetyl L-Carnitine
- Green Tea Extract
Guarana extract, ephedra extract, bitter orange, geranium extract and green tea extract are all stimulants. That is five stimulants in one formula – too much for the average dieter and even the seasoned dieter who drinks coffee every day. Bitter orange may cause hypertension and racing heart beat. Geranium extract may cause heart palpitations.
The addition of white willow bark extract means the company was going for an ECA stack with Zenalean Pro. The term ECA refers to ephedra, caffeine and aspirin. The ephedra and caffeine (guarana) are listed on the ingredient list and the aspirin is replaced with white willow bark. This stack can be extremely dangerous and even though the ephedra in this formula is not likely the real thing – there are enough other stimulants to cause negative side effects.
We like the fact that caffeine and green tea extract are in Zenalean Pro, but we’d like to know how much caffeine is included per dose. We would also like to see some clinical support in the product description, but Zenalean Pro offers no such support.
- All ingredients in Zenalean Pro are listed online.
- The ingredient list contains proven ingredients like caffeine and green tea extract.
- The company claims the formula contains ephedra.
- There are multiple stimulants in the formula.
- The warning on the Zenalean Pro label is long and detailed.
Zenalean Pro is not a safe weight loss supplement. The product may contain ephedra and it does contain at least five stimulants. There is no reason to take that many stimulants, especially when some are known to cause severe side effects.
A safe and effective weight loss supplement will include proven ingredients and have testimonials from people who’ve lost weight taking the supplement. Green tea and caffeine are safe, but when you start adding in other stimulants and claim ephedra is a main ingredient, we tell dieters to steer clear.
