And in today’s review, we’re going to be talking about Xenadrine ultimate.
This is a weight loss supplement that I recently got a chance to test out, and I’m gonna talk a little bit about the product first.
But as always, if you’d like to skip ahead to my review, you could just click on the link below the video there, and it’ll take you to my website supplementcritique.com, where I go into all the details.
Anyway, Xenadrine ultimate is basically the follow up to the original xenadrine.
Back in the day, I believe it was like the mid to late 90s.
It contained an ingredient called the ephedra or ephedrine, which was really really effective, and it was actually my go-to fat burner.
I believe it was in a few other supplements, I can’t remember off the top my head, I think Hydroxycut.
The original contained Efrain as well, but um, unfortunately, a safety was called in a question, when there was like a huge amount of poison control center visits.
They went up dramatically, and as a result, I believe like 13 people actually died from supplements that contain ephedrine.
So the FDA ultimately ended up banning the substance in any kind of supplements.
You can find it, I believe as an over-the-counter nasal spray, but I’m not really sure about that.
But as a result, they did come up with this follow-up formula, which, unfortunately, in my opinion, isn’t it nearly as effective as the original.
But in any case, you could see here on the label, it contains probably about, I’d say about a dozen ingredients.
They try to go a little bit heavy on the stimulants, as far as I can tell.
A serving size of two capsules, as you can see here, contains 200 milligrams, which it’s kind of a lot of caffeine for most people.
It also contains Yohimbe bark extract, which is a really popular stimulant, that you’ll find on a wide variety of like weight loss, diet pills, pre-workout supplements, things of that nature.
And robusta coffee bean extract, which I never actually heard of before, but clearly it’s some sort of a caffeine derivative.
Their ultimate complex contains garcinia fruit extract, l-theanine, spearmint leaf extract, autumn olive fruit extract, and ashwagandha root.
I talk about all these ingredients on my website, I’m not gonna go into any kind of like great detail here, but um, yeah.
As far as Xenadrine the company, they’ve been around for a really long time.
When you go on their website, they don’t really just sell a supplement for weight loss, they actually have what’s called the 21-day starter plan.
And for someone like myself who’s kind of already been into diet and exercise since I was 16, 17 years old, this information is really not that informative.
However, for somebody that’s kind of new to the scene, especially new to any kind of weight loss supplements or even just working out in general, it’s definitely a really good approach to weight loss.
And it gives you a lot of information as far as like diet and exercise, and how to break out your days.
So you have like strength days, cardio days, rest days, and and then, you know, also a little bit of help with the, with diet.
As far as the kind of break down that you should have for protein, fats, carbs, things of that nature.
As far as my personal results, it’s really been a long time since I’ve actually tested a weight-loss supplement.
I gained probably about eight or nine pounds over the winter, and I figured that this would be a good test.
As far as with me, I tend to be very jittery when it comes to anything laden with stimulants.
So the directions on the label state that you should take two capsules.
I decided to start off with just one per day for the first few days and then kind of gradually, you know, work my way up.
For me, I actually skipped my usual, I have like two cups of coffee a day.
I only ended up having one, and then I skipped the second one.
And instead of having the second cup of coffee, I ended up taking one of these capsules.
I would say that I started feeling the effects probably within like 20, maybe 30 minutes, something like that.
And I would say about an hour later, is probably where I saw the peak effect.
The first thing I noticed was, my hunger pangs had been completely eliminated.
Usually, I wait a few hours after waking up, before I actually eat, and so by the like a third hour so, I’ll actually kind of be really hungry, and I’ll be ready to eat.
And I didn’t feel hungry at all for probably a good, I would say, maybe two or three hours.
One other thing that I noticed, which was not necessarily that good, was a slight sense of nausea.
Now, this is really common with products that contain Yohimbe.
It wasn’t like debilitating nausea, but definitely, like an uncomfortable one.
So that’s something that you want to definitely keep in mind if you decide to try this out.
I would also recommend that you probably just start off with one capsule as well.
After the first few days of taking just one pill, I decided to take two in the morning.
I thought about actually dividing up that dose by taking one pill first thing in the morning, and then one later in the day.
But I didn’t want to risk getting insomnia, I tend to get in something if I take any kind of stimulants later in the day, but um, yeah.
Just like the first day or so I felt, I felt they kick in after about 20 minutes.
This time though, the effects were, they felt like they were much much more pronounced.
I would say they’re literally doubled which is not really a surprise there, right.
I actually decided to go to the gym a little earlier that day, and I found that it was probably like one of the most intense workouts that I’ve actually had in a really really long time.
Unfortunately about probably, about four hours, maybe five hours later or something like that, I felt kind of a big crash from it, but um, to the point where I was basically, just wanted to kind of like lay around all day.
Anyway, you can find this in a lot of different stores, big box stores like Walmart, you know, carry it.
I believe CVS, Walgreens, GNC, I think they sell a sixty capsule bottle of this stuff for like 25 bucks.
But you might be better off buying it off their website.
I don’t really know what the money-back guarantee is, but normally that’s anywhere between like thirty to sixty days.
Anyway, that’s pretty much all I have for Xenadrine.
I personally think it does work.
I don’t think it works nearly as well as the original formula, but it’s definitely a close follow-up, I would say.
It definitely seems to work more as far as curbing appetite, and also it could also actually work as a decent pre-workout formula.
So if you want to take one or two capsules of this, you know, about maybe 60 minutes before your workout, it actually could help you out.
Anyway, if you have any questions, you can leave them in the comment section below or you can send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll try to get back to you as soon as possible.
And I’ll be back soon with another review.
