Omega Cuts Review - Does This Muscle Supplement Actually Work? Are side effects and lack of real results deal breakers?
We’ve all struggled to find the right supplement. There’s been a great deal of chatter about Omega Cuts Extreme Muscle Definition softgels, so we did one of our extensive reviews, taking a close look at the ingredients, side effects, scientific studies and overall customer care. Furthermore, we sorted through hundreds of dieter comments and responses from around the web. At this point we compressed all the data to give you the info you need.
What is Omega Cuts?
To begin, Omega Cuts is touted as a “lean muscle maintenance anti-catabolic formula” for serious athletes only. The ingredients are medium chain triglycerides, gamma-linoleic acid, lauric acid, myristic acid, linoleic acid, oleic acid, caprylic acid, conjugated linoleic acid, omega 3 acids and alpha linoleic acid. It should be taken in the morning and before workouts. Regular exercise is encouraged. It claims to help with extreme muscle definition, stimulate thermogenesis and encourage fat loss.
This product is made by PMD and has been available since 2011. It can be purchased via the official website for $49.99. Natural oils are used in Omega Cuts and there are a few customer testimonials posted on the company website, but read on…
Side Effects – “Yikes?”
The first concern we found, based on multiple reviews, was that users are experiences some side effects. According to our Research Editor, “We discovered that numerous people experienced adverse reactions while taking Omega Cuts. This is a big red flag as there are safe and effective solutions available.”
One customer said, “My wife said she felt bloated from these pills.”
Another user stated, “First day I took 2 before my workout the next day I woke up suddenly around 6am with a minor headache. Day 2 on Omega cuts I took 4 Caps, one in the morning and 2 before my workout. Woke up the next morning same thing 6am this time with a huge headache.”
This wasn’t a problem for everyone who tried the formula.
One review shared, ‘Yes, I lost weight without any problems or issues!”
Lack of Real Results – “No Effect”
Even though this supplement contains natural fatty acids such as CLA, there is no proof that this helps with increasing strength and muscle size. In fact, one user commented, “These do not increase the size or definition of my muscles.”
“Is there any additional supplement I should be taking with Omega Cuts in order to increase it’s effectiveness?,” said another customer.
We’ve read tons of reviews and found a few that praised the results.
One user said, “These are not magic, you still need to put in the hard work by working out and being athletic.”
“Great booster to daily diet and exercise,” was another comment.
According to our extensive research, if there is some particular facet of a supplement or diet program that is very bothersome (a painful/difficult exercise routine, lack of real science, too many side effects) the chances of long-term success are not good. In other words, if Omega Cuts does in fact fail to yield real results in a lot of people, this could be very problematic.
The Science – “Any Validity?”
Here at DietSpotlight, we need to see published clinical research that backs the supplement and its ingredients. As for Omega Cuts, there are no study results presented on the official website. While we were able to find some that support essential fatty acids for heart health, we did not find anything solid that links the formula to weight-loss.
The Bottom Line – Does Omega Cuts Work?
Well, we’re at the end of this one – what’s the verdict? We are glad to see that Omega Cuts softgels contain omega fatty acids to help with heart health and blood pressure. However, from what we gathered, these natural oils do not actually increase muscle size and strength. Nor do they encourage fat loss or weight reduction. Furthermore, we are concerned about the side effects that some users have experienced.
If you’re ready to jump-start weight-loss, we suggest going with a supplement that’s made with ingredients that have been clinically tested and shown to help you do just that.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. This supplement uses a proprietary blend of four key ingredients that are clinically tested with results showing they help increase metabolism and decrease hunger. We have not found any discussion of harmful side effects and customer comments found online show people are seeing substantial results.
The makers of Leptigen are so confident in their product they’re offering every customer a Special Trial Offer.

What You Should Know
Omega Cuts is a PMD supplement that can be used stacked with other muscle building formulas. The name Omega refers to essential oils needed for optimal muscle health and toning. There are no thermogenics or fat burners in the ingredient list, because other "Cuts" would need to be included in the stack to achieve those results. We could not find an official website for PMD or Omega Cuts, but several online retailers sell the products from PMD exclusively. Dieters wishing to lose weight could use Omega Cuts as part of a daily supplement plan.
List of Ingredients
Muscle Sparing Blend: Medium Chain Triglycerides Blend, Lauric Acid, Myristic Acid, Caprylic Acid, Capric Acid, Oleic Acid and Linoleic Acid.
Muscle Toning Blend: Conjugated Linoleic Acid, Gamma-Linoleic Acid, Alpha Linoelic Acid, Eicosapentaenoic Acid and Docosahexaenoic Acid.
At first glance, the ingredient list for Omega Cuts offers very little for the dieter. There are no proven weight loss ingredients, no fat burners and no appetite suppressants. Some manufacturers claim essential omega oils can reduce hunger, but this is not a proven effect. Conjugated linoleic acid or CLA, was once sold as a weight loss supplement that increased lean muscle, but over time research studies were unable to prove these claims and complaints of gastrointestinal discomfort caused many dieters to leave CLA behind.
The description for Omega Cuts is interesting. The formula is supposed to support muscle growth and with muscle growth comes a higher fat to muscle ratio. This means a higher metabolism. In a round about way, Omega Cuts is claiming to increase weight loss.
The price of Omega Cuts is much higher than other fish oil or omega oil supplements at $74.99. The supplement will not work effectively for fat loss as a standalone product, which means this is just the starting price. Higher overall cost will come from stacking other "Cuts" supplements. Dieters could quickly spend more than $200 a month on supplements for weight loss and health benefits and that is not affordable for most people.
- Omega fats are great for improved fatty acid balance in the body.
- Ingredients are listed online.
- This supplement is priced far higher than other fatty acid supplements.
Dieters who use Omega Cuts will not see the benefits they would gain from taking a fat burning supplement. Conjugated Linoleic Acid has also been linked to gastrointestinal problems like diarrhea which no dieter wants to deal with when trying to exercise and eat less.
Proven fat burners contain green tea, chromium and caffeine. These ingredients can be taken with a omega 3 complex purchased for a fraction of the cost of Omega Cuts. We truly feel this product is overpriced for what the dieter gains in return.
