We take a closer look at Maxitone Sculptress Tablets to find out more.
The Maxitone Sculptress range is aimed at the woman who wants to lose excess fat and sculpt a more slender body. Maxitone Sculptress Tablets are just one part of a range that also contains diet bars and meal replacement drinks. Maxitone is just part of the product range of Maxinutrition – a leading Sports Nutrition Supplier based in the UK
Maxitone Sculptress tablets are high in caffeine and synephrine and according to the product information, just the thing to give your energy levels a lift and give you a mental boost.
Despite the claims that the supplement contains a blend of herbal, mineral and vitamin ingredients designed to support health and fitness goals, many customers have struggled with side effects. This makes the advertised claims that the supplement will help manage your metabolism and keep you in peak condition, look extremely suspect.
Even more worryingly, Maxitone advertise the fact that the tablets contain caffeine so act as a stimulant without mentioning any of the other stimulant ingredients such as Synephrine and Guarana.
To use Maxitone Sculptress Tablets you take one tablet three times a day on an empty stomach with water.
Because of the caffeine content, you are advised not to take too close to bedtime.
Maxitone Sculptress Tablets are marketed by Maxishop the retail arm of UK and Europe’s Sports nutrition company Maxinutrition. As well as the Maxitone range, the company produce four product ranges including Maximuscle (read our Maximuscle thermobol review here), Maxiraw and Maxifuel.
These ranges are aimed at bodybuilders and athletes and include nutrients and supplements designed for these purposes. They include all the usual powders and proteins and come with a sporty and manly image.
The products have names such as Maximuscle Cyclone – an all in one muscle growth shake, Maxiraw Creatine Charge – a supplement containing protein to improve strength and Maxifuel a food supplement that aids athletic performance and recovery.
To the uninitiated (or sceptical), the products all look much the same despite the fact that the ranges are specifically targeted for different purposes.
Maxitone looks a little different. It is aimed at women so the products are packaged in a suitably girly pink and the concept of building lean muscle is not something that is advertised.
Maxitone is a whole range of fitness and weight loss products aimed specifically at active women most of whom will not be aiming to build a muscle stacked six pack, but want the body beautiful and to lose weight.
Maxitone Sculptress Tablets can be taken in combination with other weight loss products in this range including a diet drink and a cereal bar and there is also a body toning range for women, which includes protein powder and a Conjugated Linoleic acid supplement.
Maxitone Sculptress Tablets are advertised as offering three benefits to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
In addition the company state that they;
specialise in providing nutritious and convenient protein-based products for ladies with an active lifestyle.
But what does this actually mean in practical terms? How does this supplement help you stay in control of your calories and what does supporting your weight actually do?
The problem with the Maxitone Sculptress advertising is that it is all a bit vague and the major point seems to be that the tablets contain caffeine and will help you without really telling you how and that the tablets will:
Maxitone Sculptress Tablets are a general weight loss supplement that may help boost your energy levels. Although the advertising claims this is due to the caffeine, the principle ingredient is actually bitter orange extract – synephrine that is a stimulant as well.
The ingredients are quoted in a serving size of three tablets and therefore are the daily intake.
Lots of stimulants and high levels of adrenaline boosting L Carnitine will undoubtedly mean that you will “feel” this supplement.
Despite the cutesy pink advertising for the ladies, this is a strong supplement. It won’t so much “support” your weight loss as take a sledgehammer and completely annihilate it! The advertising does not mention the synephrine content, preferring the bitter orange powder title but don’t be fooled. It is there and there are health risks.
There are lots of side effects and many customers have found out the hard way about them.
One customer who took the supplements for 9 months ended up in hospital;
I lost a whole stone, I was toned… great you might think. Well it was until I was admitted to hospital with severe heart palpitations, increased heart rate and an array of other symptoms that caffeine overdose and addiction causes
Some customers have found that the tablets cause sickness and nausea;
I tried this for 5 days and each day I was sick, I couldn’t function, and my head was foggy. As soon as I quit taking them I felt so much better and was back to normal.
I am perfectly healthy but made the stupid decision to take this because I was just being impatient and after 2 days of headaches, weird gut feelings and heart palpitations it’s just not worth it
Many customers complain about the severe headaches and complain of feeling sick and shaky.
Side effects include:
Despite these common and well-documented side effects, Maxishop do not provide any health warnings.
Caution: Avoid if pregnant or breast feeding. Do not take if you suffer from a heart condition or have any issues with blood pressure. Avoid if you are taking any other medication – it may cause interactions.
Yes, and response has been mixed. Many customers have struggled with the unpleasant and potentially dangerous side effects and even positive reviews have
mentioned the side effects rather than the weight loss.
One customer said;
I would never use these as directed- if I took 3 in a day I would never get to sleep and would be climbing the walls
I find they make me quite ‘buzzy’ but once I’m exercising, I am totally focused and definitely have more energy that when I don’t take them”
I definitely feel like I’ve lost some size around my legs and stomach and feel accustomed to take the supplement. It does have a high caffeine content so if you don’t usually drink caffeine, you re likely to feel more side effects. I’ve just cut out the coffee whilst taking the capsules so that I don’t end up a jittery mess!
Maxitone Sculptress Tablets are stimulants that contain much more than caffeine. They will work as a stimulant so will probably make you run around more and not feel hungry but it is highly likely they will cause potentially dangerous side effects. There is nothing healthy about this supplement and it will only help you lose weight if you manage to burn off weight with exercise and not eating.
Very few people can physically handle this and once you stop taking the tablets, expect the weight to come piling back on.
You can buy Maxitone Sculptress Tablets direct from the Maxishop website. One week’s supply of 21 tablets costs £9.99 and delivery is free to UK customers. If you are outside the UK, you will need to contact the company for shipping costs and details.
Maxitone Sculptress is available from Amazon.co.uk. A tub of 21 tablets costs £7.79.
You can also buy Maxitone Sculptress Tablets via Holland & Barrett for £10.39 per tub or for £15.58 for two tubs.
Consumer Aware: Taking Sculptress tablets as directed will mean that one but only lasts 7 days and so at least 4 buts will be required for one months supply, costing £30 plus.
Depending on where you buy this supplement there is a money back guarantee advertised but you have to search through the website to find details. Here is what the company says;
We’re so confident that you’ll see results that if for whatever reason you don’t feel they are working, just send them back within 40 days for a hassle free refund.
Maxitone Sculptress Tablets have a stimulant effect and although the company advertise that this is caused by the caffeine content, the fact that this supplement contains high levels of synephrine is a matter for concern and can be dangerous.
Don’t be fooled by the pink advertising into thinking this is a safe and healthy support to weight loss because it isn’t.
The ingredients profile combined with a high number of customer complaints and tricksy advertising leads us to just one conclusion and that is 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.
