Ab Cuts Lipo Cuts Fat Burner Review
Fat burners are big business and now summer is on it’s way (if you live in the Northern Hemisphere) there’s even more reason for us to crack on and trial a new product coming to the market to see how it fairs against more established competition.
The free market is a good thing…
This looks and sounds like some new gimmicky hair product that women would buy, something that has buzzwords like ‘ProV’ and ‘Serum Shine’.
The labeling actually makes it look like a hair product for guys from the 1980’s with that color palette.
The whole packaging is trying to look as ridiculous as this sounds…scientific – the sort of shit women tend to fall for whilst on the cosmetics aisle in the grocery store.
Guys like it simple and less like a fancy cosmetic product, in fact the more I look at it, the more it resembles a rampant rabbit in it’s box.
Ingredients: The Science
There’s not one but two, yes two proprietary blends here! Immediately that has my back up and my seating position has just changed, it’s extremely annoying to see this.
Manufacturers will tell us until they’re blue in the face that having a proprietary blend doesn’t disclose the secret and scientific amounts of each ingredient included so their competitors cannot produce a copy.
The truth is, it’s unregulated so they can only include trace amounts of each ingredient and bulk it up with something like flour and save lots of dollar!
It’s utterly criminal and not present in the any of the best fat burner’s on the market.
Let’s have a look at this blend of ingredients then:
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) – Studies have shown that this naturally occurring fatty acid helped a group of women lose 9% body fat within 12 months.
You need a composition of at least 80% for this to be effective which this just edges, however, there have been some further studies which contradict much of the initial hype.
Medium Chain Triglycerides – Can be used to help raise metabolism but the effect is very small, MCT essentially are fatty acids that can be used for energy and they are much easier for your body to absorb – but they ain’t a miracle worker.
Vitamin B12 – Gives you more energy and boost your metabolism, helping you shed unwanted pounds. Ensure you are not deficient in Vitamin B12 so you can do that quick 10 miler at 5am…
Safflower Extract – Possibly effective for lowering cholesterol but there’s very little evidence to substantiate any other claims.
Niacin – Higher amounts of niacin can improve cholesterol levels and lower cardiovascular risks. However, the jury is out on these real benefits.
Caffeine – can assist with endurance, tested athletes saw an edge from caffeine in scientific studies. In some trials, the stimulant boosted athletes’ speed.
In others, it helped them last longer before they spent all their energy.
Caffeine also raises the metabolism which means you burn more calories. Some studies show that it can curb soreness after exercise, too.
This means you could get back to your training sooner and training means more calories burnt.
Dandelion – There’s many uses for dandelion, however, there’s no real evidence to suggest it works for any of them.
Ashwagandha – There has been some debate about whether ashwaganda stimulates hyperthyroidism.
Hyperthyroidism is when your thyroid gland, located at the front of your neck, produces too much thyroid hormone.
The extra thyroid hormone causes your metabolism to speed up a lot more than normal but this does place more stress on your cardiovascular system.
BioPerine – The extract of piperine, called BioPerine® in the patented form, has been clinically tested in the United States.
BioPerine® significantly enhances the bio-availability of various supplement nutrients through increased absorption.
2 tablets twice a day.
This is a good dose, however, I feel that these should be spread out more evenly to avoid flat lining for long periods of time.
You want your body to be constantly utilizing the nutrients so a dose of 1 tablet equally spread out 4 times per day would be more beneficial.
Lipo Cuts promises lots, especially with its new fangled time release system.
The truth being, it will have little effect as your stomach acid will just dissolve it all pretty quickly so don’t be fooled by some extra thick beads, it’s just a marketing ploy and something to differentiate it from other products.
Truth be told this has very few effective ingredients and barely any found in out list of top fat burning ingredients.
CLA was seen as a good inclusion (but this is now debatable) as is caffeine but there are many ingredients with no scientific evidence to back up the claims meaning they’re anecdotal at best and stories do often become exaggerated along the way, I have a good friend who will never let the truth get in the way of a good story.
There’s two proprietary blends here which is no good at all, all in there’s a total of 1,255mg of content, yet the 1175mg in the blend(s) could only contain trace elements of each ingredient and the rest be bulking agent.
There’s also gelatin which is no good if you’re a veggie or vegan plus it was manufactured in a facility which may have processed a whole host of foods that could have an allergic reaction on someone.
Additionally, with ingredients that may cause hyperthyroidism and be potentially dangerous and I just cannot get past this proprietary blend though, it’s a real issue in supplement industry and isn’t something found in our #1 Fat Burner.
Too few active and proven ingredients.
A ‘secret’ blend, silly marketing features and unattractive branding all scream “NO” to me.
I’m afraid there is no reason to risk wasting your money on this product when there are much better products out there with proven results.
Stay clear of this one.
