Zero Xtreme Review
What You Should Know
Zero Xtreme is a fat burning supplement with an amazing flash website. The site, though beautiful to look at, is extremely difficult to read. The ingredient list is published on the website, but you will have to scroll through a long flash description and product recommendation to find the ingredients. They are well hidden. We found a Facebook page for the supplement, but most of the updates are in Spanish leading us to believe this is a relatively new product in the United States.
List of Ingredients
- Coix Lacryoma-Jobi
- Mulberry Leaf
- Cassia Extract
- Medical Amylum
- Bitter Citrus Extract
Coix Lacryoma-Jobi, also known as Job’s Tears, is commonly used as a diuretic. This could be the reason the produce recommendations for Zero Xtreme suggest the dieter add potassium to their diet. Diuretics strip the body of electrolytes like potassium and can lead to serious side effects or death when used for long periods or in extreme amounts.
Mulberry leaf may be an effective solution for controlling blood glucose response to food. According to Dr. Weil, mulberry leaf can be consumed with your largest meals of the day to help keep glucose within normal levels. Maintaining healthy glucose levels is crucial for dieters because spikes and falls in glucose associated with eating large meals laced with tons of carbohydrates can lead to carbohydrate cravings later in the day.
Cassia extract is a natural laxative. Laxatives are not a healthy addition to any weight loss supplement like Zero Xtreme. If you are suffering from occasional constipation, herbal laxatives can relieve the problem, but they can also cause lazy bowels that require constant stimulant to achieve normal bowel movements. Laxatives are also associated with dehydration and water loss.
Bitter citrus extract is synephrine, a stimulant. Synephrine has been associated with negative side effects, including increased heart rate. The ingredient is a cousin of ephedra though it does not come with the proven fat loss and weight loss benefits of ephedra.
- All ingredients are listed online.
- The site is beautiful to look at.
- Flash websites can cause trouble on some personal computers.
- The music on the website is rather loud.
- Finding the ingredient list was a little tricky.
- There is a diuretic and laxative in the Zero Xtreme formula.
Zero Xtreme is not the ideal weight loss supplement. Adding a laxative and diuretic to the mix is a lose-lose situation. Dieters should never take diuretics or laxatives to lose weight and the weight lost while taking these ingredients is associated with water loss so it will be regained later.
