Mancore 2

Rating

Below we take an in-depth look at Mancore 2 to see if this diet pill for men can really aid significant weight loss.

Mancore 2 Facts

  • Manufactured by Complete Nutrition.
  • 120 capsules of each product.
  • Fat Burn capsules and Testosterone Replenish Capsules.

Mancore 2 is a weight loss aid designed specifically for use by men. It consists of two tablets, called Total Fat Burn and Testosterone Replenish. Total Fat Burn will help to increase the metabolic rate of the body and aid weight loss, whilst the Testosterone Replenish is intended to raise testosterone levels, as the name suggests. The side effects of increased testosterone levels include changes in body composition such as gains in lean muscle mass and reduced body fat and an increased sex drive. It could take several cycles of the product to see the positive side effects of increased testosterone levels.

Mancore 2 is manufactured by Complete Nutrition, a diet pill company from Omaha, NE. The company has been in business since 2004, and has a huge range of products, including CTS360 Advanced and CTS360 Maximum, which have both been reviewed.

The company can be contacted using the information provided on their official website.

Testosterone Replenish: Take 1 capsule in the morning and 1 capsule in the afternoon 15-30 minutes before meals with 8 oz. of water. This product should be cycled with 4 weeks off after 8 weeks of continuous use.

So What Is Mancore 2 and What Are The Ingredients?

Mancore Total Fat Burn

    • Niacin 30 mg 150% RDA
    • Vitamin B6 5 mg (250% RDA)
    • Vitamin B12 30 mcg (500% RDA)

Fat Burning Complex 595 mg

      • Green tea leaf extract (98% polyphenols, 45% EGCG) (Camellia Sinensis): Green tea is high in a group of antioxidants called catechins. Studies have suggested that catechins increase thermogenesis in the body, whilst caffeine increases energy expenditure by boosting the metabolism slightly for a few hours.
        Source: http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/70/6/1040.full
      • Caffeine Anhydrous: Numerous studies have shown that caffeine boosts energy levels and alertness, as well as mildly boosting the metabolism. The effects shown in studies are small, and some studies are inconclusive.
        Source: http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-living/weight-loss/caffeine
      • Synephrine HCI: Synephrine is a stimulant extracted from bitter orange peel. A review of numerous studies concluded that use of synephrine resulted in an increase to the participants resting metabolic rate and energy expenditure, and moderate weight loss was seen in studies lasting over 6 weeks. However, there are some concerns about its safety being under-researched and the numerous side effects that have been associated with it.

      • White Willow Bark Extract (std. to 15% salicin): Willow bark contains salicin, which acts a painkiller, and is thought to be as effective as aspirin. There is some evidence that when taken in conjunction with kola nut and ephedra, it can cause weight loss. It does not seem to have been tested on its own for weight loss properties.
        Source: http://www.webmd.com/willow%20bark.aspx
      • Guarana Seed Extract: A berry that is naturally high in caffeine, it is often an ingredient in energy drinks and diet pills.
        Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/Guarana
      • Yohimbe Bark Extract (std. to 2% yohimbine): Some studies have noticed increased blood concentrations of free fatty acids in participants who use yohimbe extract, suggesting increased rates of lipolysis. However, the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database has stated that there is insufficient evidence to claim it aids in weight loss.
        Source: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/natural/759.html
      • Green coffee bean extract (std. to 50% chlorogenic acids): Contains caffeine. Whilst it was thought that this ingredient was a significant aid in weight loss, the relevant research has been discredited as it was fraudulent. Currently there is no evidence that it aids with weight loss more than any other source of caffeine. See our article for more details:

      • Ginger root extract (std. to 5% gingerols): Some studies suggest that ginger root is an appetite suppressant. One study used dried ginger powder to make a tea that participants drank with breakfast. Researchers found that satiety levels were much higher when the tea was consumed with breakfast, rather than just the breakfast on its own.

Mancore Testosterone Replenish

      • Zinc 7.5mg 50% RDA: Zinc is required by the body for numerous purposes, including natural testosterone production. Supplementation for as little as 6 weeks has been shown to cause a ‘marked improvement’ in testosterone among men with low levels.

Hormone Enhancement Blend 647 mg

      • Tribulus terrestris fruit extract (40% saponins): Usually advertised as an herbal supplement that will produce large gains in muscle mass and strength, but studies in rugby players undertaking pre-season training showed no differences in the changes in muscle mass or strength between groups taking the ingredient and groups taking a placebo. Although there are worries amongst some athletes that the product could change their testosterone/epitestosterone ratio, putting them at risk of a positive drug test, the study also revealed that the participants’ testosterone/epitestosterone ratio did not change.

      • White button mushroom extract (agaricus bisporus)
      • Long Jack 100:1 Root extract (Eurcome longifolia): This Asian plant is taken as a tea by Malaysian men to improve sexual abilities and virility. It could stimulate testosterone levels, and is sometimes used as an herbal treatment for Erectile Dysfunction.

      • Cordyceps Sinensis: This ingredient is a parasitic fungus that grows on caterpillar larvae in some regions of India. It has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. There is limited evidence linking this ingredient with improved athletic performance and endurance.
        Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3121254/
      • Stinging Nettle Leaf Extract (Urtica dioica): A diuretic, nettle is used for treating urination problems and bloating from water retention.

      • Bee Propolis Extract (supplying caffeic acid phenethylester, CAPE)

So What Does All This Mean?

This diet pill program consists of two separate tablets to take, which play two different roles in weight loss. The Total Fat Burn pill contains numerous stimulant ingredients. Yohimbine and synephrine have been associated with a wide variety of side effects, as described in the side effects section below, which could prevent some groups of people from taking this diet pill. Green tea, caffeine and synephrine are all proven weight loss aids, although, as mentioned above, some have better safety profiles than others.

At this time, there is little evidence available to suggest that green coffee bean aids weight loss through any mechanism other than its caffeine content; the strongest evidence that Green Coffee Bean boosted weight loss was retracted after it was revealed that the results were fraudulent.

Some of the ingredients used in Mancore Testosterone Replenish could cause the body to increase its production of Testosterone, whilst some could potentially improve athletic performance and recovery times after exercise. Long Jack seems to have the biggest impact on testosterone levels. This product contains natural ingredients that could increase testosterone levels, and so is very different from having a testosterone injection or taking steroids. However, it is possible that having high testosterone levels could raise a red flag during drug testing for athletes or soldiers.

As testosterone plays a big role in both fat mass and muscle mass for men, increasing testosterone levels may make it easier to gain muscle mass through exercise, and make it easier to lose fat mass though diet and exercise. Muscle will not develop on its own without undertaking an appropriate work out regime.

Does Mancore 2 Have Any Side Effects?

There are numerous potential side effects that could be caused by the consumption of Mancore 2.

Side effects associated with the use of synephrine include increased heart rate and increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, fainting, muscle disorders, seizures, irregular heartbeat, loss of consciousness, strokes, heart attacks, and death in previously healthy patients. The Mayo Clinic has recommended avoiding use of Bitter Orange extracts including synephrine because in their opinion, the risk of using the product is not worth the pay-off of any potential weight loss. The effects of synephrine are enhanced when combined with caffeine. Consuming large quantities of caffeine can lead to headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness and insomnia. Green tea can also cause constipation.

The potential side effects of consuming yohimbine include nervousness, irritability, insomnia, headache, skin flushing, anorexia, nausea, gastric distress, diarrhoea, vomiting, heart palpitations, tachycardia, dysuria, pain, increased blood pressure, dizziness, sweating, weight gain, constipation, and anxiety.

Side effects of increased testosterone levels can include changes in temperament such as an increase in aggression and mood swings, an increase in sex drive, and increased body hair. Very high testosterone levels can lead to a drop in sperm count.

Caution:
Not intended for persons under the age of 18 or by those with a serious medical condition. Do not use is pregnant or nursing. The testosterone boosting supplement is not suitable for women in general. Consult your physician before using this product. May cause dehydration, nausea and/or dizziness with inadequate water intake. Stimulant-sensitive individuals may experience rapid heartbeat and nervousness. Do not use if tamper resistant seal is broken. Sports competitors who are subject to rules or regulations regarding the use of supplements are responsible for reviewing all ingredients prior to use and complying with all codes and policies.

Any Mancore 2 Reviews From Customers?

There are several customer reviews on the manufacturers sales page for the product.

Just started this product today and no jitters and no side effects so far. Ill post results later.

I began using the Mancore® 2 pack in July. I’m feeling great. Getting stronger every day. Losing lbs too. Prior to that I was using a product (Androblox 300) from my local GNC store. Now I’m a loyal Mancore® and Complete Nutrition customer.

Tried Mancore® for a couple months. These made me sick as a dog every time I tried to take them. Complete Nutrition kept their word and gave me a refund. I am now trying Prime Drive®, 3-Test-OXO™, and Weapon X. Will review those in a month.

So Does Mancore 2 Work?

Whilst there are limited customer reviews for Mancore 2, the reviews reveal a split in customer opinion. One customer noted numerous side effects any time he took the product, most likely due to the stimulant ingredients used in the Total Fat Burn pills. Another customer loved the product, and a third reported no initial side effects but had only just begun using the product. These short reviews are not enough information to establish the average consumer experience.

The clinical evidence for the ingredients used in Mancore 2 suggests that side effects could be common and incredibly varied; as the ingredients list consists of a proprietary formula, there is no way of establishing just how likely any side effects are. It also makes it more difficult to establish how likely it is that the product will aid weight loss. There are numerous ingredients that have been clinically proven to aid weight loss, including green tea, caffeine and synephrine. Ginger is a proven appetite suppressant that will help the consumer to eat less at meal times, if they pay attention to their own hunger rather than eating out of habit.

The second product included in Mancore 2 is a testosterone booster, but not all of the ingredients will actually boost testosterone. One is a diuretic, which should not be used in the long term. Testosterone levels do play a role in fat mass and muscle mass, but are not the main determining factor in body composition – diet and exercise will still be the main factors, but an increased level of testosterone could make building muscle and losing fat easier, once other good habits have been taken up.

Where Can I Buy Mancore 2?

Mancore 2 can be purchased directly from the manufacturer’s website, Complete Nutrition. A single box of the product contains 120 capsules of Mancore Total Fat Burn and 120 capsules of Mancore Testosterone Replenish, and costs $129.99.

The product can also be purchased from any Complete Nutrition Store.

One of the products used in Mancore 2 are available separately, which could be useful as the testosterone replenisher needs to be cycled, with a four week break after every eight weeks of use. A single bottle of Mancore Total Fat Burn costs $69.99. However we could not locate Mancore Testosterone Replenish for sale on its own.

What About A Guarantee

The manufacturers offer a 30-day money-back guarantee. Customers must follow the instructions in order to obtain a refund:

Email us at [email protected] Include your order number, first and last name, email address, phone number and reason for return. A Complete Nutrition Complete Care team member will respond to you as quickly as possible to process your return.

Customers who purchased a product in store need to return the product to that store, rather than direct to the company.

Watchdog Verdict

Overall, we find Complete Nutrition products in general to be overpriced. Mancore 2 definitely fits this trend, with a single pack costing $129.99. Whilst this product may last for 60 days, this is still in the upper range of diet pill prices, and we have seen many that are far cheaper.

Cycling one of the products but not the other could get complicated if using Mancore 2 in the long term. Complete Nutrition do offer a money-back guarantee on purchases.

The ingredients list suggests that there could be a huge list of potential side effects that may develop whilst using this product. Customer feedback is limited, and shows a split between positive results and negative effects including side effects. It is hard to establish exactly what the average customer experience is, based upon these few reviews.

Overall, we do not recommend Mancore 2 to our readers, as it is an overpriced weight loss aid. Anyone who is concerned about their testosterone levels should consult their doctor.

1 comment on 'Mancore 2'

  1. I am at the end of my 1st cycle of Mancore Total Fat Burn and Testosterone package. Before using any products, I was lifting weights daily and doing 20 minutes cardio on a 3-4 times a week, routine. I had never used any products prior to Mancore ever. I am 56 yrs old and maintained my weight for the past 30 years as I continued a physical routine of running since leaving the army. However, about two years ago I dropped 25 pounds and found myself wanting to maintain a thinner look but wanted muscle gain.

    I started lifting weights and got into it. After my 1st year, I could see some hardening but not the growth of muscle. I only get into the whole history so one can understand that I have seen significant gain of muscle and according to my BMI, less fat. But this may come from the fact that I am pushing myself harder physically and that energy must be coming from the ManCore products?

    But I do have diarrhea currently and its come about right at the end of my two bottles! So maybe prolonged use leads to this or maybe I cuz I started drinking coffee again….bottom line for this older guy, be it mental, maybe the caffeine, I am looking better which makes me feel better overall. And my buds notice it….I have a six pack for the 1st time in my life and I am 57!!!
