Reveal Extreme Review - Does This Metabolism Booster Work?
Reveal Extreme is a diet product I will surely never forget. We analyzed the scientific studies and everything we could find on ingredients, side effects, and customer-service quality. Then we focused on user comments about the product. Finally, we took what we had learned and summarized it to give you the facts.
What is Reveal Extreme?
To begin with, Reveal Extreme is a weight-loss aid consisting of three supplements, including, the 60-day program, the Accelerator, Reveal Extreme Toner, and Reveal Extreme Night Time. The ingredients are ashwagandha extract, emblic myrobalan caffeine, white willow bark, evodiamine HCL, synepherine HCL, Thyrostim, n-acetyl-l-tryosine, vinerol, yohimbe, flaxseed oil, safflower oil, borage oil, evening primrose oil, gamma linolenic acid, valerian, selenium, 5-hydroxy-1-tryptophan, inositol, tryptomine MEL, oat flower, peppermint, passion flower, guggulsterones, reishi mushroom, ashwagandha, kelp, hoodia, and citrimax.
Reveal Extreme is made by Complete Nutrition. The company was founded in 2004. The supplements are only sold at the official stores. We like that it contains a few natural ingredients and that we found some positive comments, but read on…
Reveal Extreme Ingredients– “Questionable?”
Our first issue is with Reveal Extreme ingredients. “There is a lot going on here,” said our Research Editor. “While there’s three supplements in the kit, there’s limited connection to weight loss.”
A dieter complained, “I felt like I was taking a pill every three hours. Why couldn’t one do the trick?”
Another said, “I’d feel ok when I took one of them but then it would be time for another and it made me feel sick. I just gave up.”
Some liked that the ingredients were separated by the time of day they were needed.
But one happy shopper decided, “I liked that I took something that gave me energy during the day and then helped me sleep at night.”
While another related, “I think it’s good that you don’t get hit with everything all at once. I liked it.”
Customer Support– “Lacking?”
The official website has a blank page when Reveal Extreme is selected. It is unclear if that is because it is only available in retail locations or if the product is no longer offered anywhere.
A livid reviewer raged that, “I bought this and went online to find out if it was ok to take just two of the three and I can’t find anything anywhere.”
And a steaming man disclosed, “It annoys me when I buy something right before it’s discontinued and everyone acts like I’m crazy if I have a question.”
Not all customers were bothered by this.
This pleased client explained, “I bought it in the store and had all my questions answered then.”
Which was similar to the woman who insisted, “I know website glitches happen so it’s ok that the information is down. What I need is on the packaging.”
According to our research, poor customer service could reduce the chances of long-term success. If users can’t get help from the Reveal Extreme support team, is it time to consider something else?
The Science – “Is Reveal Extreme Researched?”
At DietSpotlight we expect manufacturers to be upfront about what they’ve done to ensure the efficacy of their product. The fact that the company website offers absolutely nothing in the name of science is concerning. This is unfortunate, considering the supplement does contain solid ingredients like caffeine and flaxseed.
The Bottom Line – Does Reveal Extreme Work?
Is it time to clear the shelves of Reveal Extreme? We like that it contains a few natural ingredients and that we found some positive customer comments. However, there’s no clinical evidence connecting the supplement to weight-loss. We’re also concerned about reviews talking about the poor customer service and questionable formula.
If you want to drop those extra pounds, we suggest going with a product with ingredients backed by science and supported by positive customer comments.
Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Leptigen. The supplement contains four clinicially-tested ingredients and has been shown to help ignite fat loss and accelerate metabolism. People are talking about seeing great results and there’s no chatter about harmful side effects.
The makers of Leptigen are so confident in their product, that they’re offering a Special Trial Offer.

What You Should Know about Reveal Extreme
Reveal Extreme is a weight loss accelerator that adds extra stimulating ingredients to mirror the effects of Ephedra in the system. According to the description on the official website, the accelerator is formulated to reduce or eliminate negative side effects. Reveal Extreme is a 60-day program available for order from third party websites or offline. The manufacturer offers a store locator to make purchasing easier.
List of of Reveal Extreme Ingredients
Supplement 1 - Weight Loss Accelerator Blend: Emblic Myrobalan Caffeine, Ashwagandha Extract, White Willow Bark, Synephrine HCL, Evodiamine HCL, N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine, Thyrostim TM, Yohimbex and Vinerol.
Supplement 2 - Selenium, Stress Supporting Blend: Valerian Root, Inositol, 5-Hydroxy-L-Tyrptophan, Melatonin. Anxiety Support: Peppermint, Passion Flower, Oat Straw, Reishi Mushroom. PM Metabolism Enhancing Blend: Guggul. Thyroid Support: Kelp, Ashwahandha. Appetite Supporting Blend: Hoodia, Citrimax.
Supplement 3 - CLA Omega 3, 6, 9 Blend: Safflower Oil, Fish Oil, Flaxseed Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Borage Oil.
At first glance, there are more ingredients in this supplement trio than many of the other supplements we have reviewed. While complete ingredient lists are offered, there are no names for each of the supplements so we gave them the names Supplement 1, Supplement 2 and Supplement 3.
Supplement 1 is the accelerator talked about in the Reveal Extreme description. Caffeine, White Willow Bark and Synephrine make up the ECA-like stack that is supposed to mimic the way Ephedra works in the body. There is little doubt that synephrine has some of the same effects in the body as Ephedra, but even this strong stimulant and aspirin combination will not mirror the proven results of Ephedra. The remaining ingredients in the blend are more stimulants. One ingredient, Ashwagandha Extract, is used to calm down the dieter in much the same way an anti-anxiety medication will work. This could be to combat the effects of overstimulation.
Supplement 2 is the heart of the Reveal Extreme supplement kit. This supplement relieves stress and anxiety while fighting off hunger. Because the supplement contains a PM Metabolism Blend, it is probably taken at night before bed. There are no known supplements that can boost metabolism without increasing heart rate and thus these ingredients are there only to make the dieter sleep more soundly. This may work for some dieters, but those on prescription medications or diagnosed with a mental condition should not take herbal mood altering or sleep enhancing supplements.
Supplement 3 contains several different oils to promote a healthy omega 3, 6, 9 balance. This is the only portion of the Reveal Extreme supplement we can fully support. There is a constant imbalance in most people with omega 6 fatty acids being far higher than omega 3s. Typically, omega 9 fatty acids are not lacking in the human diet. We could not find any pricing information for Reveal Extreme, but one dieter said the kit was very pricey.
Advantages of Reveal Extreme
- Omega fatty acid support.
- Stimulants to boost metabolism.
Disadvantages of Reveal Extreme
- No pricing information could be found.
- Synephrine can cause harmful side effects.
- Many of the ingredients are mood altering and not safe for everyone.
Reveal Extreme is not a weight loss supplement we would suggest dieters try. There are quite a few stimulants - so many, in fact, that the supplement includes an herbal ingredient to calm the dieter down. Without pricing information, we cannot gauge how this supplement compares to others on the market, though with such a long list of ingredients we doubt it compares to any.
