What is it?
Nature’s Way Metabolift Fat Burner Triple Action diet pills claim to boost the metabolism and burn fat in three specific ways.
The website itself is extremely limited with regards to information and exactly what these three specific ways are, stating only that it will increase metabolism, burn fat and increase energy levels.
The site does offer a list of ingredients and their quantities, but there is no detailed breakdown of how these ingredients are expected to work so, unless you do your own research, there is no way of knowing exactly why these particular substances are weight-loss enhancers, or in fact if they are proven to be effective.
So does it work?
Nature’s Way Metabolift Fat Burner lists its ingredients as Brindleberry, Guarana, Caffeine, Gymnema Sylvestre extract, Fucus Vesiculosus (Kelp), Yerba Mate, Green Tea, Capsicum, Citrus Aurantium (Bitter Orange), Choline Bitartrate, Chromium, and Vitamin B6. None of them particularly stand out as miracle fat burners, however they are pretty well known and used in other diet supplements.
Potential side effects
The combination of Guarana, Green Tea, Caffeine, Yerba Mate and Capsicum are certainly included to boost the metabolism through thermogenesis (the production of heat within the body to help ‘literally’ burn excess fat) and increase energy levels, but they could also cause a few nasty side effects that may include jitteriness, headaches, nausea and anxiety.
Metabolift fat burner triple action ingredients:
Brindleberry, otherwise known as Garcinia Cambogia, is a favourite among dieters thanks to the wealth of research that has been carried out into its effectiveness; it is massively popular to diet-pill manufacturers. Unfortunately, the amount of Brindleberry in each of the Nature’s Way Metabolift Fat Burner pills is massively below the recommended amount of 1600mg (60% Hydroxycitric Acid) at just 3g per serving. According to research, there is absolutely no way that this amount of Garcinia extract will have the desired effect on weight-loss.
Kelp is another ingredient that has had some media attention in the weight-loss world, largely due to its use throughout history as a natural slimming aid, however there is still very little research that supports this.
Citrus Aurantium is still considered controversial in dieting circles and it is highly debated as to whether or not the supplement is in fact dangerous. A natural alternative to Ephedra, Bitter Orange carries with an arms-length long list of dangerous interactions and nasty side effects.
Other than these, the rest of Nature’s Way Metabolift Fat Burner is a lot of alternate names of vitamins and minerals, all required by the body and pretty much all found in your everyday vitamin supplement.
Customer reviews and complaints
While there are no customer testimonials on the brands official site, there are several online reviews for the pill. Unfortunately, they are pretty average overall.
On most review sites, Nature’s Way Metabolift Fat Burner scored an average three out of five stars, and reviewers have labelled the brand everything from ‘Good’ to ‘Terrible’.
This isn’t exactly what we like to see from our diet pills; we’d much prefer a more top heavy result from independent reviews if we’re to recommend them for weight-loss.
There’s actually very little to say about Nature’s Way Metabolift Fat Burner as far as pros are concerned. A few positive reviews are all well and good but when they are stacked against just as many negative reviews its difficult.
It’s true that all of the ingredients are natural, and stated clearly on the website, but as to whether or not they are safe, well, that’s still up for debate.
They are definitely not the most expensive brand on the market, at $35 (AUD), but they are also not the cheapest.
Sadly, there are quite a few; the website is minimal. There is not nearly enough information on here to make any kind of informed decision.
The ingredients are well known, but definitely not at the correct or recommended dosages for noticeable results.
There have been no studies or clinical trials (that we know of) into this particular formula’s effectiveness, so without hunting the research down yourself into each individual ingredient, there is no scientific research supporting the company’s claims.
Is it worth buying?
Unfortunately for Nature’s Way Metabolift Fat Burner, it looks as though the company has whipped together a pill that looks at first glance to contains a number of highly effective ingredients, but digging a little deeper and it seems just too many (in small amounts) have been crammed into a capsule.
