We take an in depth look at Tone Clinical to find out more about this supplement.
Tone Clinical is a health supplement that is designed to support overall fat loss while focusing specifically on your abdominal fat. It contains a range of tea varieties including green tea leaf extract, black tea, oolong tea and white tea shoots as well as some herbal extracts, chromium picolate and a trademarked CLA supplement called Clarinol.
Tea is a powerful source of antioxidants. All tea is derived from the same plant; Camellia Sinensis but as with all plants, there are different varieties. Oolong tea is a prized for its taste but as with all teas the major differences come down to how the tea is processed after picking.
Most of the tea that we drink in the west is black tea and this has undergone a lengthy oxidisation process. Green teas by contrast have had less processing and retain more of the natural antioxidants – powerful molecules that have health benefits.
White tea shoots are the shoots harvested from the tea buds before they open. White tea is highly prized in China and has only undergone minimal oxidisation making the tea shoots a potent source of antioxidants.
Antioxidants help protect the body from cell damage and can increase the speed of the metabolism making green teas effective for weight loss. As well as the tea extracts, Tone Clinical contains Gotu Kola an extract derived from an Indian plant called Centella that is used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine and believed to decrease inflammation.
Tone Clinical also contains Cassia Nomame a Chinese herb. According to some opinion, this natural ingredient helps block fat and stops fat absorption. This ingredient is unusual in supplements but according to some online commentators looks set to become the latest craze in diet pills.
Added to the mix is Clarinol –a branded CLA supplement. CLA or Conjugated Linoleic Acid. CLA is a group of unsaturated omega six compounds found in dairy products, meat and eggs. It is often marketed as a way to build muscle and there is some evidence that it may help reduce body fat.
Other ingredients include, Forskolin a plant chemical believed to increase testosterone and help prevent weight gain, Wakame an edible seaweed extract which contains fucoxanthin believed to increase a fat burning protein in the brain and Evodia Fructus a Chinese plant extract believed to have many medical effects but lacks evidence.
The final ingredient is chromium picolate – a trace mineral that can be dangerous at high levels but may play a role in insulin production.
Take 1 softgel three times per day with main meals and 6-8 oz. of water.
For best toning results, follow a proper diet and exercise plan.
Tone Clinical is a supplement on sale from Complete Nutrition. This American company have a network of franchised retail stores across the USA and also sell via their online shop.
Complete Nutrition market weight loss supplements, sports nutrition, anti aging and general health supplements. There is an extensive range in most categories of diet pill types.
We covered Complete Nutrition Tone in a previous review. This is a supplement designed to promote heart health and help maintain lean muscle. We felt it had several good points but rejected it, as it was unlikely to work in the way as described.
Other supplements include Tone Fusion a supplement that contains raspberry ketones and green coffee and Tone Trim a 10-day weight loss plan aimed at you if you need to slim down for a special event.
All Complete Nutrition supplements are manufactured in Omaha, USA.
According to the product advertising,
Tone™ Clinical is a toning formula that scientifically works to target abdominal fat. It includes highly concentrated extracts of green tea Catechins clinically formulated to help you lose weight and burn fat.
There are three key benefits. It may help:
None of these effects are strictly proven but according to the product information,
Numerous clinical studies suggest that green tea helps to burn intra-abdominal fat, reduce BMI, waist size and overall body fat.
We would have liked to have seen a further explanation about the clinical studies and a link to the evidence.
Complete Nutrition Tone Clinical is a general purpose diet pill that makers say will help you reduce abdominal fat. Each capsule is equal to one serving. We cannot provide full ingredients information because the formula comes under a proprietary blend called Tone GT Adipoblast, which means we cannot see amount quantities.
We cannot see why or how Clinical Tone will specifically target abdominal fat. Weight loss does not really work like that because you cannot specify which part of the body you wish to trim. That said, sometimes the belly is first to go as it is the place where most people carry their extra fat.
We are concerned about some of the ingredients in this supplement. Evodia Fructus is a herbal medicine that lacks any real clinical testing and may interfere with your menstrual cycle as well as stimulating heart rate. Cassia Nomame has had very little investigation and side effects are unknown. How much chromium is contained here? It is dangerous in high quantities.
We like green tea but we cannot see how or why this supplement should be effective. You could probably get greater benefits by drinking a good quality green tea or by taking a green tea supplement, which contains more of this active ingredient than is present in this supplement. It would be safer too.
There is not much customer feedback but side effects do not seem to be an issue.
However judging by the ingredients list there may be potential side effects. Green tea does contain caffeine so this may be an issue for some people. Some ingredients have not been fully investigated for adverse effects.
Side effects may include:
Do not exceed recommended amount.
Use only as directed.
Not intended for use by persons under 18 or by those with a serious medical condition.
Do not use if pregnant or nursing.
Please consult your physician before using this product.
Do not use if tamper resistant seal is broken.
We advise you to avoid this supplement if you are trying to conceive because the Evodia content may help induce bleeding.
There are a few genuine customer reviews placed on the product website, and well done to Complete Nutrition for including the negative as well as the positive comments. There is a range of opinion. Some customers are satisfied.
I started taking Tone™ Clinical 4 days ago and I have already lost 6 lbs. I changed my eating habits and started Tone™ and the results are amazing. I had been stuck for months. I love this product.
Other customers seem less impressed,
I’ve been working out and eating healthy, but I plateaued on my stomach area and nothing I do seems to be targeting it. So, I tried tone. I’ve been 3 weeks in – same routine, same diet and workout (4-5 days a weeks) and nothing so far. Pretty bummed.
One customer was pleased but mentioned the need for your own efforts,
So I was given this supplement by my cousin. So far I actually think it does the trick but don’t be fooled you do really need to engage yourself. I run/walk at least 8 miles a day (mainly walk) and have lost 15 lbs in 2 months. I’m stoked.
We don’t think it really works very well for weight loss. However, we love green tea and when used in combination with caffeine, exercise or resistance training it seems to promote weight loss.
There have been many clinical trials into green tea and there appear to be many health benefits but there is no real reason why you should choose this supplement.
The tea varieties do not have any specific benefits –and without knowing the quantities of the tea or any other of the ingredients, it is hard to assess their efficacy.
If you wanted to try out green tea, you could find other supplements on the market with clearer product information. You could also try adding it to your daily diet by drinking as natural tea.
We are concerned about the other ingredients. They lack a full safety profile and although CLA is touted for weight loss, there is evidence that suggests that it may not work for everyone.
You can buy Complete Nutrition Tone Clinical from one of the Complete Nutrition stores across America. You can also buy it online from the complete Nutrition website.
One container of 90 capsules (one month’ supply) costs $49.99. Shipping is calculated at the point of sale. Complete Nutrition do not appear to ship internationally so may not be available to customers outside the USA.
Complete Nutrition do not offer a money back guarantee.
We are not very impressed with Complete Nutrition Tone Clinical. This supplement lacks a full ingredients profile so you do not really know how much of any one ingredient you will be taking.
In addition, this supplement contains mainly green tea, which although seems safe and may be effective for health and weight loss, is easily available, elsewhere and for much less cost.
Some of the additional ingredients are worrying. We are particularly concerned about Evodia and Cassia – these ingredients are unproven and potentially dangerous and there is no real reason why this supplement will target abdominal fat as the advertising describes.
That said, Complete Nutrition seem to be a reputable company with no associated billing issues but when it comes down to this supplement, it is expensive and does not seem to provide good value for the price.
For all these reasons, we cannot add Tone Clinical to our approved list so have no other option but to reject it.
Thousands of customers have cut the fat with this fast and powerful thermogenic fat burner. Can suppress appetite, boost energy levels and elevate mood without the jitters.
