AbCuts CLA Belly Fat Formula Fat Burner Review

 1star

Initial Thoughts:

The fat burner market is a crowded arena, to succeed you must make a great product and stand out from the crowd. From an initial look, this certainly stands out. It feels like it is aimed at the female market moreso than the men with its almost gold and jeweled appearance in a stunning transparent bottle. This look more at home in a hair salon as a high end luxury hair serum than anything else.

Vitamin E – Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin found in many foods, fats, and oils. It is also an antioxidant, a substance that may help prevent damage to the body’s cells. Antioxidants may provide protection against serious diseases including heart disease and cancer.

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.

Safflower Extract  Possibly effective for lowering cholesterol but there’s very little evidence to substantiate any other claims it seems.

Fish Oil – Omega-3 increases insulin sensitivity which greatly oxidizes fat cells. Fish oil may be a great way to lower fat levels as well as decrease muscle and bone degeneration.

Flax Seed – Supplementation shows a decease in testosterone levels and helps combat hirsutism. It may lower the level of LDL (bad cholesterol) which may be linked to obesity, however, a renowned flax seed PhD researcher has stated that none of the benefits of flax have been “conclusively established”.

Borage Oil – Many claimed uses for borage including alcoholism and periodontitis but nothing on fat loss or weight management. Looks like it could be useful in conjunction with anti-inflammatory drugs for arthritis.

Sesame Oil – Results of a study suggests that sesame oil as edible oil lowered blood pressure, decreased lipid peroxidation, and increased antioxidant status in hypertensive patients. Bodyweight and BMI was reduced also.

Instructions:

2 soft gels daily. The ideal would be 4 soft gels per day in order to provide a constant fat burning stimulation throughout the day.

Good:

There is only one solid, proven ingredient present, the rest are all ‘may be’ this or ‘may be’ that, nothing utterly conclusive.

Sesame is a bit of an exception but it seems only to be effective if the person has high blood pressure. There’s very little reliable sources to state otherwise.

Bad:

1600mg per day isn’t satisfactory neither is the dose of 2 soft gels per day.

There’s only one thoroughly researched and proven ingredient out of 7.

My Review Conclusion:

This fails on many levels. It looks great and people will buy it purely on appearance, however, fundamentally it is flawed. The one saving grace is the 1 ingredient with rigorous studies behind it, the other’s are too anecdotal, which, realistically in this time and place we would have found out by now if they really did work.

This is blown away by the #1 fat burner on the market today.

My score:

1/5
