X-TONE Fitness CLA Fat Burner Review
X-TONE Fitness CLA Fat Burner First Look
X-TONE are an unknown entity. There’s very little about them on the internet but I found a bottle of these CLA softgels while out shopping and thought I would take a closer look as well as try them out.
The branding certainly looks the part and as is the case with most health and nutrition companies X-TONE have taken the crisp, clean white route for their packaging.
In fact the package belies the low price. Potentially this could offer great value for money.
I’ve been quite interested in fat burning products containing CLA because initial research looked promising…
Conjugated Linolenic Acid (CLA) – Initial reports and studies have showed that CLA helped a bunch of women who did no exercise lose 9% body fat.
However, further studies are showing very mixed, if not medicore results that aren’t really setting the world alight, in fact the side effects are having their presence felt moreso outweighing any real benefits. Any benefits that were found meant that the composition had to be greater than 80%.
The advice is to take up to 2 soft gels three times daily. This provides a maximum of 6000mg per day. That is a lot and much more than most CLA supplements.
As with any supplement such as this we would recommend a dose of 4 pills/soft gels to be taken evenly throughout the day to minimize large peaks and troughs of the nutrients to be utilized by your body as with the best products.
CLA is one of those ‘wonder’ supplement ingredients that many people rave on about and the next thing you know CLA is found everywhere; from the grocery store to the shopping channel.
However, the real, consistent evidence of its effectiveness is somewhat lacking.
CLA is not a tried and tested ingredient such as green tea, caffeine or capsaicin which is good for helping fat burn.
On a positive note it is free from stimulants for those who are not comfortable with them and of course, a proprietary blend.
So always avoid anything that contains a proprietary blend.
So will it work? Well, again it will probably depend on person to person which doesn’t sound too promising. However, it does have a large daily dose and is the required 80% composition.
Therefore, if it can work, of all of the products, this is one of the best to use.
The real lack of evidence to substantiate the claims is pretty high up on the list of negatives for this product.
There’s a real lack of assisting ingredients too which would help this product be more effective, even some other CLA products have accompanying ingredients to help the effects moreso.
My initial thoughts were that this is great value, and do not get me wrong it is pretty cost effective. However, when you realize that the daily dose is 6 softgels and there are only 60 softgels per bottle it becomes clear that the initial low price needs to be tripled for a month supply.
X-TONE Fitness CLA Fat Burner Review Conclusion
I get that this is one of those singular ingredient supplements, however, to be truly effective it needs the support from other ingredients like caffeine, B12, B6, cayenne peppers, green tea and the like which this omits.
And while it jumps on the CLA bandwagon, this offers nothing new or is hardly a leap in science to give it an edge over its contemporaries. Although the 6000mg daily dose is pretty big and it has the necessary 80% composition as found from studies if it is to have the best chance of working.
This really is a bit of a try it and see product. The dose is there, the value is pretty good but there’s not real guarantee it will offer any benefit.
This supplement from X-TONE Fitness would be best used alongside an already established and proven fat burner to help maximize results
