CritiCalorie's Top Diet Pill Pick
Do we ever rate a diet pill positively?. Yes (rarely). Why aren't we recommending Lyse XL? We're looking for clinically-researched ingredients, at the right (that means clinical) dosage. There are a few diet pills that have chosen this better route, and our favorite is Boda Extract No. 3. You can read our review or go to the official site.
LYSE XL is a “thermogenic weight loss formula designed to naturally assist the body in burning more calories by efficiently using stored body fat for energy. It also works as an appetite suppressant and an energy booster so you feel less hungry and have more energy” (website). This Lyse XL review will explore the truth behind Lyse XL’s marketing and help you see what you can really expect from Lyse XL diet pills.
Hydroxycitric Acid Update
On May 1, 2009 the FDA issued a warning to consumers to stop taking Hydroxycut-branded products. Over more than 7 years they have received 23 reports of health related issues with those taking Hydroxycut-branded products. The main health concern appears to be serious liver-related problems. Iovate Health Sciences Inc., the makers of Hydroxcut, have voluntarily recalled all of the products under question in the FDA’s report
Common symptoms of liver complications include:
- jaundice (yellowing of the skin)
- brown urine
- light colored stools
- unusual tiredness
- stomach pain
- loss of appetite
In light of the recent FDA warning concerning the possible dangers of Hydroxycut-branded diet pills, many believe that the associated health risks are likely due to the inclusion of the commonly used ingredient Hydroxycitric Acid, or HCA. And while according to the FDA, “The agency has not yet determined which ingredients, dosages, or other health-related factors may be associated with risks related to these Hydroxycut products. The products contain a variety of ingredients and herbal extracts.” you can never be too cautious.
So, while further study and research is needed to confirm the link between HCA and the liver problems, until proven otherwise any products that contain HCA are no longer recommended on this website.
Lyse XL Ingredients
- Boerhaavia diffusa 50mg
- Smilax china 50mg
- Phyllanthus emblica 25mg
- Zingiber officinale 25mg
- Piper longum 25mg
- Piper nigrum 25mg
- Commifora mukul 50mg
- Garcinia combogia 50mg
- Terminalia belerica 25mg
- Terminalia chebula 25mg
Smilax is used as an herbal remedy for various afflictions, but it does not contribute to weight loss.
Phyllanthus emblica (Indian gooseberry) may reduce blood cholesterol levels, but research has not shown a direct contribution to weight loss.
Zingiber officinale is just the scientific name for ginger. Ginger calms the stomach, but it does not contribute to weight loss.
Piper longum and Piper nigrum contain piperine, which increases the body’s thermogenic activity. Thus, the body can absorb more nutrients. Whether this tranlates directly to weight loss remains to be proven.
Garcinia cambogia contains HCL, which has been proven to contribute to weight loss.
Terminalia chebula supposedly inhibits the growth of malignant tumors. There is no evidence to show that it contributes to weight loss.
You will notice only ONE ingredient in Lyse XL diet pills (Garcinia cambogia) has actually been proven to contribute to weight loss. This Lyse XL review finds you would be better off looking for a diet pill that includes more proven ingredients in proven amounts. Garcinia cambogia won’t do a lot by itself.
Lyse XL Cost
Lyse XL diet pills cost $41.95 for a one month supply (with a discount for buying in bulk). This Lyse XL review finds this is too expensive. Lyse XL contains only ONE proven ingredient.
Lyse XL Marketing
The Lyse XL website contains typical before and after photos as well as outrageous testimonials. I was shocked to read, “Individuals shown are paid models, and not necessarily Naturomeds customers” (website). At least they are honest about it. It makes me wonder–Are the testimonials paid for as well? If they have to pay people for their before and after pictures, what else are they being phony about?
Lyse XL Conclusion
This Lyse XL review finds most likely you will be disappointed with Lyse XL diet pills. They contain only one proven ingredient, and their marketing tactics are sketchy at best. Don’t waste your time or money with products that fail to include proven ingredients. Look through our recommended products for diet pills that actually include proven ingredients in necessary amounts.
