Below we take an in-depth look at McCall Fitness Women’s L-iquid Youth, to see whether this formula offers the right balance of ingredients to offer the best value to female athletes.
McCall Fitness Women’s L-iquid Youth is an all-purpose pre-workout supplement designed especially for women. It promises to help customers to build lean muscle and lose weight, whilst also guaranteeing better sleep patterns, better skin, and a host of other effects. Despite a long list of potentially impressive effects, this product’s main distinguishing feature is its incredibly high cost (which reaches up to more than $100 per month).
This article will only cover the Women’s version of the L-iquid Youth product, as the Men’s version is considerably different in terms of ingredients and effects.
Customers taking Women’s L-iquid Youth will be exposed to a huge number of ingredients, which greatly increases the chance of side effects. However, it must be said that this product comes with relatively fewer side effects than McCall Fitness’ similar L-iquid Youth product for men.
One major source of frequent side effects in many product like this is plain old caffeine, which can cause jitters, sleeplessness, heart palpitations, and increased blood pressure in high doses. The high and various doses of l-arginine in this product could also cause a range of effects, including, blood pressure changes, dizziness, vomiting, loss of consciousness, breathing issues, bloating, and diarrhoea.
L-carnitine is generally thought to be safe for use, although it can occasionally cause stomach problems, vomiting, heartburn, diarrhoea, seizures and a fishy odour from the urine, sweat, and breath. Lysine can cause stomach pain and diarrhoea.
Melatonin can cause headaches, short-term depression, dizziness, stomach cramps, and irritability.
McCall Fitness Women’s L-iquid Youth is an extraordinarily expensive product, costing $100 plus $7 in shipping for a month’s supply. Discounts are only available when signing up for an auto-ship program or when buying in bulk, and still result in a month’s supply costing $90 as a minimum. This product is available to buy from the official McCall Fitness website and from Amazon.
If any readers are familiar with the men’s version of this product, they may be as mystified as us as to why this one is so different and the strange choices that have been made. The main difference is that the men’s version has more in it, including a few ingredients designed to protect the gut or boost mental performance. Although the women’s version logically has fewer amino acids, the decision to advertise one as “for women” and one “for men” honestly has little basis in anything.
In any case, this women’s version is better for being different. It is less prone to causing side effects than the men’s version and has attracted better reviews. On balance, it appears to work broadly as advertised (although it offers no weight loss benefits), and should work well to boost performance without relying on bloat-inducing protein powder.
There are still serious concerns. Some customer reviews mention the fact that the product didn’t work at all for them, which would have been particularly hard to take when you consider that this product can set you back by more than $107 per month. This exorbitant cost is not protected by a money back guarantee, and is far in excess of other comparable products.
In short, this product could be a good bet if you have the money to spend, although most of its key actions can be replicated by using cheaper products with the same ingredients. Not one we would recommend but maybe worth a quick look if the ingredients appeal to you.
Overall, we do not recommend McCall Fitness Women’s L-iquid Youth to our readers.

McCall Fitness Women’s L-iquid Youth is a pre-workout supplement that is designed to boost performance, build lean muscle, and burn fat. Specifically advertised as an all-in-one formula, Women’s L-iquid Youth comes with “day” and “night” formulas that are obviously designed to be taken at different times of the day. As well as being comprehensive, this product is also marketed as extremely fast-acting, with customers told to expect results within just one week.
Women’s L-iquid Youth is manufactured by McCall Fitness, a family-owned company who are based in Austin, Texas in the USA. The company can be contacted using the information provided on their official website, or through their social media pages. Customers who use the contact form on the official website are told to expect a reply within 24 hours.
The directions for use are as follows:
Take 1 Scoop (approximately 18g) of Day Formula in the Morning & 1 Scoop (approximately 19.8g) of Night Formula at Night. Use these fruit flavored formulas 5 days a week.
For clarity, the L-iquid Youth product comes in a Women’s and Men’s version and this article covers just the Women’s product. The two versions are actually surprisingly different, meaning that we decided to give the Men’s version its own review article over on our sister site.
The Women’s version of the L-iquid Youth product claims to pack a variety of effects in one supplement. L-iquid Youth claims to offer women the opportunity to build lean muscle and burn fat, whilst also improving overall health. In addition, the product’s many ingredients are also said to provide an anti-aging effect, improve skin, and rejuvenate the skin’s elasticity and overall clearness. The night formula claims to contribute to better sleep pattern by inducing a deeper form of REM. Finally, the NO boost is also said to increase blood flow and boost libido.
Women’s L-iquid Youth makes a number of bold claims, and it could well deliver on a few of them. The product seem to be well-designed in terms of its performance-boosting ingredients, containing more than a few sources of l-arginine and with a host of other amino acids that should help to accentuate its various effects (such as raising NO production). The use of caffeine should help to boost energy and collagen could help to provide a measure of the beautifying effects.
However, most of the other claimed effects have no ingredients within the mix to back them up, most notably the claimed weight loss effects. There is very little in this product that could conceivably have an anti-aging effect or improve general health.
Some of the available customer reviews we could find that are genuine also express very mixed feelings on whether this product works, even as a performance-booster. As the ingredient quantities are not listed, it remains entirely possible that the overall mix is balanced so poorly that the product has very weak effects all-round.
The ingredients found in McCall Fitness Women’s L-iquid Youth are detailed below. Readers should note that ingredient quantities are not listed for this product, which can make it hard for us to estimate how effective it is and the likelihood of side effects occurring.
Women’s Tropical Sunrise Blend (Day Formula) 14,190mg
Women’s Tahitian Sunset Blend (Night Formula) 16,962mg
As with many products with high numbers of ingredients, there is a moderate-to-high chance of this product causing side effects.
High doses of caffeine can cause headaches, jitteriness, insomnia, an increased heartrate, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, and increased blood pressure.
In one study, L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (AAKG) caused side effects including dizziness, vomiting, and loss of consciousness. AAKG is not recommended for continuous, high-level use for more than 60 days.
L-carnitine is generally thought to be safe for use, although it can occasionally cause stomach problems, vomiting, heartburn, diarrhoea, seizures and a fishy odour from the urine, sweat and breath. Lysine can cause stomach pain and diarrhoea, and Hyaluronic acid also has the potential to cause serious allergic reactions, although the potential for this is extremely rare.
Melatonin can cause headaches, short-term depression, dizziness, stomach cramps and irritability. Very high doses of ornithine could cause diarrhoea, but this is incredibly unlikely as doses of 4 or more grams per day are generally well-tolerated in trials.
Maximum safe doses in pregnant or nursing women, young children, and those with severe liver or kidney disease have not yet been established. If you are diabetic, have severe liver, or kidney disease, please consult a medical doctor before use. If you have angina, congestive heart failure, or intermittent claudication, do not attempt to treat yourself with arginine derived nutritional products except under a physician’s supervision. Not intended for the use by persons under 18. Do not use if you have had a heart attack. Inhalation may amplify the inflammatory response in people with asthma. Consult a medical doctor before use if you have been treated for, or diagnosed with or have a family history of any medical condition, or if you are using any prescription or over-the-counter drug(s). Consult a medical doctor before starting any diet or exercise program. Do not exceed the recommended dosage. Improper use of this product will not improve results. Use only as directed. Do not use if the package has been tampered with. Do not refrigerate. Store in a cool, dry place (60 to 80 degrees). Keep out of the reach of children.
We were able to find a number of customer reviews on the product’s Amazon page, with many expressing positive thoughts about the product and its effects. However, a quick visit to the fake-review spotter FakeSpot shows us that many of the reviews posted to the Amazon page have been faked. Out of the real ones that remain, we see a more mixed reception, although some still report hugely positive experiences. Criticism is often reserved for the product’s poor taste and side effects.
I have really enjoyed using this product (in combination with a healthy lifestyle and workout routine). I will be ordering my 3rd round of the Liquid Youth this week. I really like the day time formula because I feel like it gives me a good boost in energy without the jitters, and I also feel like it gives me a calming sensation while brightening my mood. The night formula definitely helps enhance my sleep, which I really do enjoy. I also have enjoyed getting some feedback from the owner, he is very responsive and gives great advice. This really makes me like the products even more! I looking forward to continuing to use this product. 🙂
This stuff is amazing I could notice more energy, slept better and many more things. I will keep buying and encourage everyone to try.
I can tolerate the AM formula for the energy boost it gives me….and it does give a nice boost. However, I have to choke it down due to the taste and I am really not that picky about these kinds of things! The PM formula gives me a stomach ache that keeps me up all night…no bueno!
I still have more than half leftover. It just didn’t work out for me. I’ve been going through depression and my doctor said maybe I should’ve waited until I had control. The flavor is very good, night time helps me fall asleep but the morning time really didn’t help much at this time
