Metaburn Review - Does This Supplement Work? Is the formula a deal breaker?
With the recent buzz about Metaburn, we decided to conduct a more thorough review to see if the product is what it claims to be. We looked closely at the product itself, the company behind it, the science, and user reviews. To make it easier for you, we summarized and condensed it all.
What You Need to Know
First off, Metaburn is A weight loss supplement offered by MRM, a nutrition and health supplement company that was founded in 1996. They claim to use superior ingredients, scientific expertise, and modern technology. The supplement is available in two different forms – EF and XTP. Both of them claim to help with increased fat burning through a boost to the metabolism. The XTP formula sells for $31.96 for 90 capsules and the EF formula sells for $19.95 for 120 capsules. Both versions of the supplements are ephedra free. Ingredients include: Green Tea Extract, Octopamine, Xanthine Xcellerator, EnergX , EGCG, Synephrine, Hydroxycitric Acid and Coleus Forskohlii.
We like that they are two different versions of the product available, but read on…
This formula uses fat ingredients like green tea extracts, but also includes bitter orange extract, which is a chemical cousin to ephedra. It is known to cause potentially harmful side effects such as increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, and insomnia.
”The inclusion of bitter orange in this formula makes for a potentially harmful supplement. Please talk to your doctor to make sure you are healthy enough to use this product. If you have high blood pressure or heart condition, this could make your condition worse.” said our Research Editor.
Several Complaints from Users
Over the course of our research, we found many users were not happy with their customer service experience. Many of them ordered the product, had money taken out of their accounts and didn’t necessarily receive all of the product. Several other users have reported issues with canceling automatic shipments.
“Metaburn is a giant rip off. they took their money before i even received a product. and i have never received the 2nd bottle i had ordered. i have made at least 7 phone calls to the usa which i am paying for just to get my money back.” , said another.
Another user said, “Another unhappy customer. Said it was a free trial only $2.95. They took $75.00 from my account. Do not take anymore money from my account. I can’t even contact these people to discuss the matter.”
Our research shows that if something has problems, like if customers are being charged for product they don’t receive, or the product represents a health risk, dieters aren’t likely to stick with it.
Metaburn doesn’t provide any links to published clinical research. what we do know about the ingredients is that while some of them do work to help boost the metabolism, the potential side effects and health risks negate any real reason to use the product.
The Bottom Line
At first glance, it seems like meta-burn would be a good product to use alongside a balanced diet and regular exercise routine to help boost fat loss. However, after digging a little deeper into the ingredients in seeing what customers think about the product, this company doesn’t appear as reputable as they would like customers believe.
For anyone who wants to drop a few pounds, it is better to choose a clinically proven safe and effective supplement, or at least one that contains clinically proven safe and effective ingredients. For even better results, use the supplement as part of a routine that includes a balanced diet and regular exercise.
One of the best supplements we’ve seen so far this year is Leptigen. It contains four clinically proven safe and effective ingredients known for their ability to increase fat burning power. Over the course of our research, we were not able to find any negative mentions of side effects and we saw many users who reported success.
The makers of Leptigen are so certain their product works, they’re providing new customers with a special trial offer, which we love to see.
