The results of my research into MPOWER were somewhat surprising. We did one of our in-depth reviews, examining the ingredients, side effects, clinical studies and level of customer service. We additionally read hundreds of user comments and remarks from around the web. Finally, we summarized and condensed to give you the bottom line.

MPOWER Readers: Click here to find out why we're giving away samples of our product, Dietspotlight Burn.

What is MPOWER?

Firstly, MPOWER ingredients include green tea leaf, ginkgo biloba, conjugated linoleic acid, garcinia cambogia, green coffee bean, raspberry ketones, guarana seed, yerba mate and caffeine anhydrous. This supplement is supposed to help boost energy levels, improve focus and concentration, promote fat loss and aid with weight control. You need to take one to two capsules each morning and afternoon. Both women and men can use this formula, and no special diet is required.

We are not sure when MPOWER was first released. However, this diet product is made by Rivalus, a company located in Aurora, IL. It is one of several weight-loss and fitness supplements available from this brand. You can buy this formula via the official website, as well as through dealer sites like bodybuilding.com, but read on…

Fad Ingredients – “Concerned Yet?”

The first concern we have is fad ingredients. “MPOWER capsules contain key components like garcinia cambogia and raspberry ketones to aid with fat loss. However, these herbs are not supported by any solid science,” says our Research Editor.

One customer stated, “This does not help you lose weight. It gives you an energy boost, but that’s it.”

Then again, a different user said, “Take this before I exercise. It does increase endurance.”

Another posted, “Kind of like an energy drink. If you want a boost, MPOWER might be what you’re looking for.”

Side Effects – “Watch Out”

Another issue we have is MPOWER side effects. Some users have reported anxiety, rapid heartbeat, headache, insomnia, jitteriness and nausea. In fact, one customer said, “Can’t take this one. Makes my heart pound like crazy and I feel on edge.”

However, a different user revealed, “MPOWER gives me a jolt and reduces my appetite.”

“If you can stand the jitters, this product can help you through your workouts,” commented another.

The extensive research we’ve conducted has shown if there’s a specific part of a diet product or weight-loss program that’s quite problematic (fad ingredients, side effects, high cost) the odds of long-term success are slim. This means if MPOWER does in fact cause unpleasant reactions in a lot of people, this could be a deal breaker.

The Science – “Solid?”

First off, MPOWER does contain green tea and caffeine to help elevate metabolism. On the other hand, this supplement also relies on some fad ingredients like raspberry ketones and garcinia cambogia, which are not backed by any real science. We did not find any clinical studies presented on the official website to support this formula. For us at DietSpotlight, we like to see some actual research before we get behind a product.

The Bottom Line – Does MPOWER Work?

Now the moment you’ve been waiting for. This is our bottom line on MPOWER. To begin, we like that this supplement contains natural ingredients. It’s also good to see that this formula is easy to use anywhere. But, we have some concerns about this diet product because it’s not backed by any documented clinical studies. Also, it contains some fad ingredients, and some users have complained of unpleasant side effects.

If you really want to get started shedding some pounds, then we suggest you go with a product that contains clinically tested ingredients for weight-loss, does not lead to any harmful side effects and gives you plenty of bang for your buck.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Dietspotlight Burn. This supplement contains a potent blend of four ingredients, which have been shown in documented clinical research to help speed up fat loss and boost metabolism. We can’t find any negative user reviews, comments around the web indicate people are seeing wonderful results and there are no fads to worry about.

The makers of Dietspotlight Burn are so sure about their product they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is a positive sign.

Previous MPOWER Review (Updated September 12, 2012):

What You Should Know

MPOWER claims to be a "Thermogenesis and Energy Activator" supplement created by RIVALUS Sports Nutrition. MPOWER claims to decrease your body fat by over 10 percent, give you energy right away, and also increase the rate that your body's cells burn fat by giving your mitochondria a kick into overdrive. Mitochondria live inside each cell and regulate cellular energy among other things. RIVALUS is a Canadian company that was created to help athletes improve their performance safely and effectively. This company was created by a Dr. Darren Burke who is an exathlete who is now a researcher and professor. The official website doesn't say what university Dr. Burke teaches at and doesn't give a lot of background information on his expertise however.


MPOWER contains: 1) MITOLEAN, 2) p38BURN and 3) nFOCUS. MITOLEAN contains: KREBFUEL, Hakyul, Green Tea extract, Guarana Seed extract, Yerba Mate extract and Caffeine Anhydrous. The p38BURN contains: Campesterol, Rheosmin/Raspberry Ketone, Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), Evodiamine, and Forskolin. nFOCUS contains: Ginkgo biloba, Vinpocetine and Siberian Rhodiola Rosea.

Product Features

MPOWER claims to work directly on your mitochondria and the website suggests that the best athletes in the world have mitochondria that simply function better than an average athlete. This company has tried to let everyone have access to the same cellular energy supply. The official website has some test results posted but it doesn't tell us who conducted these tests or where. The official website contains quite a bit of information on MPOWER including a frequently asked questions page which contains a list of the active ingredients. MPOWER is sold on the official website for $69.99 but we can't find a satisfaction guarantee or a free trial.


  • MPOWER claims to contain powerful thermogenic ingredients.


  • This product claims to increase the amount and size of mitochondria inside cells but it is unknown whether or not you can actually do that with any products.
  • This product contains stimulants.
  • There is no satisfaction guarantee offered on the official website


MPOWER is an interesting product. The mitochondria that live inside each of your cells do play an important role in how your body uses and distributes energy but there isn't a lot of scientific data to back up the effectiveness of this product. MPOWER does contain some basic thermogenic ingredients such as green tea and caffeine but we don't see a very powerful one like Citrimax. We like what MPOWER is trying to do as thermogenesis is a great and easy way to burn excess fat and have extra energy but there are cheaper and more effective products available. We recommend finding a thermogenic weight loss product that is a little more well known.

I have been using MPower Ramp Up for about three months now. Here are my observations below…
Yes for the first few days, I was feeling jittery and anxious when I started to take this product. I basically knew it was a side effect and stuck with it. It has natural stimulants which of course will increase your heart rate.
After taking one capsule first thing in the morning for a few days, my body became adjusted to it’s effects. Not any noticeable anxiety or jittery feelings.
Combined with a healthy breakfast, I noticed that I was not getting as hungry as normal by lunch time.
After a couple of weeks, I moved onto taking two capsules in the morning. I didn’t notice a change in my body adjusting to the new double dosage. I seemed fine. Again my appetite seemed suppressed still.
I have lost about 11 lbs in total. BUT……..I have made some changes in diet which have helped too. And I found myself having more energy to work out at the end of the day which helped the weight loss.
So this product alone will not magically burn fat, but it will suppress your appetite so you eat less and it will give you energy so you will work out more. I will continue to take MPower in the foreseeable future..

  I just got Mpower, will update of any good or bad results.

I just got MPower today and wondering if this really works. Will update you guys of any good or bad results.

  I have BP can I still take the Mpower pills?

My question is that I have BP can I still take the Mpower bills?.

Carl (Verified User)

For those who are having trouble with their digestive system… i was instructed by the seller to always take this with food and never in an empty stomach.

   i hope it works for me as well

i only just got this product after failing to lose any weight with healthy eating and exercise. i hope it works for me as well

  it works wonders, worth the money 100 percent!
Michelle (Verified User)

This product is completely amazing not sure how it works but gives you energy that you have never felt before !
Exercise was never so easy after taking these pills it works wonders, worth the money 100 percent!


Not true….


Mower DOES work! I used it along with Encharge and got really great results! I did exercise and ate healthy. I think my body got used to them now though as they don’t work for me anymore. For first time users I would recommend 1000%

  Loved the product.
linda (Verified User)

this product truly does work! I was a little worried about any type of side effects but I was perfectly fine. I was taking it for about a month and I am currently taking a break. However, I have not gotten my period for about a month now and I was wondering if the pill could have caused this. If anyone could help me out, that would be greatly appreciated!


OMG this pill made me have uncontrollable bowel movements! How embarrassing!

  Having problem with menstrual.
h (Verified User)

For the ladies, has mpower effected anyone’s menstrual cycle?? i haven’t gotten my period since over a month and a half ago, which is strange (def no chence of beinng pregnant). just a little worried, don’t know if i should continue with this product or stop..


Any physical activity can drastically effect your menstral cycle even just beginning a regular excercise regime. Go to doc if your worried but I can say this happened to me and I’m very healthy.

  I'm worried about side effects
help! (Verified User)

I was taking Mpower regularly for 3 months . I just found out i was 4 months pregnant and didn’t know . How is mpower going to affect baby or is it ?? Im very worried .

Maribel (Editor)

Hello, because of possible interactions with pregnancy, please make sure to consult with your physician.

  Can't wait to see the results

I just tried it yesterday but I felt weird after taking it. I guess I wasn’t used to feeling so energized since I’m somewhat tired lately due to 2 pt jobs and school. I’m hoping it works because I heard some good things about it. Wanted to initially try the slimspa hgc but didn’t have so this one has less caffeine and more natural. can’t wait to see the results~

  I love it!
Kelli (Verified User)

I have tried a few fat burning products and nothing compares to mpower. Love it!

  Product is not good for my body
Matt (Verified User)

i have used MPower for almost a month and a half. it didnot work at all. i started pooping blood because i was so constipated it plugged me up, i stopped taking it yesterday and am fully cleared up everything.


Wow it did the opposite for me! Couldn’t get off the toilet!


Lol, I am opposite, I been releasing #2 5-8 times a day for couple days now.


I have been using mpower for the last several months 2 pills in the am before workouts and just recently started experiencing some serious digestion issues such as constipation and bloating and lots of discomfort in my lower groin…eliminated everything else out and then finally the mpower and within a couple of days I’m feeling better. Very disappointed as I love the energy that I get from the supp but I guess like everything moderation is the key….


I use MPower and have not experienced that problem. Maybe you should try and incorporate so fiber into your diet. That’s probably what the problem is.

  Nothing compares to this product!
leah (Verified User)

Over the years I have used several different types of weight loss pills and although i have gotten great results with others, nothing compares to MPOWER. it gives you energy, curbs your appetite, but most of all it really does burn fat. i have noticed a dramatic difference in my skin. I know it may sound crazy but it feels smoother and more firm. something i have never noticed with any other pill i have tried before. I would highly recommend this to women especially. It really does eat away the fat!

  really liked the results
TJ (Verified User)

I’ve used this product for two sets of 8 week cuts and really liked the results. I would recommend this to anyone and have already gotten a couple friends to try it, including my girl. So far, nothing but good energy and exceptional weight loss.
