Max Muscle – a company that offers everything you could need in terms of supplements. From fat burners to meal replacements to cleansing supplements – there’s nothing you can’t find. It’s all about the Max Nutrition, Max Health. But, just because the product list is long, doesn’t mean the products are worth a try.
Our research team dug deep into Max Muscle supplements and found research into the main ingredients. What did the research find?
Max Muscle Sports Nutrition is a supplement franchise that’s concentrated on the west coast of the US. The official website shows a name change – now supplements are sold by M Nutrition by Max Muscle. We didn’t find any evidence that this is a legal name change.
Caffeine: a 2012 study in Obesity Research says, “High caffeine intake was associated with weight loss through thermogenesis and fat oxidation.” There’s also evidence, based on this study, that a combination of green tea extract and caffeine is more effective.
Green Tea Extract: green tea contains caffeine, which has been shown to help improve focus, increase energy and spark metabolism. It also contains potent antioxidants that promote overall health by fighting free radical damage, claims the Journal of Nutrition.
Citrus Aurantium Extract: citrus aurantium goes by various names including bitter orange and synephrine. All the names refer to the same ingredient from the same plant. What we know about citrus aurantium and the chemicals it supplies is that they increase heart rate and blood pressure for up to five hours after ingestion, according to the Annals of Pharmacology.
Yohimbine HCL: a study in Psychosomatic Medicineshows that yohimbine intake increases heart rate due to a stimulatory action. Thus, yohimbine is a stimulant like guarana and caffeine.
Berberine HCL: There’s no evidence that Berberine has any proven effect on weight or overall health – aside from some benefits in terms of blood sugar.
Senna Leaf Extract: a stimulant laxative just like cascara sagrada.
Uva Ursi Extract and Dandelion Root Extract: two natural diuretics used for centuries to promote urination. This effect was utilized for the treatment of conditions of the bladder and urinary tract.

Bottom Line on Max Muscle
