New improved diet pill from Saba? We check out if this supplement is a contender.
The manufacturers of Saba X-treme 5000 are indeed Saba, who appear to use SabaforLife as their official website. Saba use a distribution network of independent ‘consultants’ to sell their product for them, and as such a variety of unofficial websites have sprung up, as each consultant tries to increase their market further.
Each Saba consultant tries to not only sell the product, but also encourage others to ‘join the movement’. Indeed, when we were searching for more information on Saba X-treme 5000, we found it much easier to find promotional videos discussing how easy it is to become a consultant and ‘share the news’, which the videos remind us time and again is not selling!
The website gives no directions for how to use the product, although it is most likely listed on the bottle. We are unsure what training consultants need to undergo before they are able to give diet and lifestyle advice to their customers, professing themselves to be ‘consultants’.
X-treme 5000 represents a quantum leap in weight management that promotes a healthy metabolism, helps suppress appetite and provide sustained-release of energy.
X-treme 5000 works fast to…
- Safely activate natural thyroid output
- Stimulate fat burning via brown adipose tissue (BAT)
- Help you retain muscle, shape and lose fat
- Break yo-yo cycle for permanent tissue fat loss
- Elevates mood and energy with no jitters
The official website does list the ingredients used in Saba X-treme 5000, but does not provide any quantities for these ingredients. It is possible that the quantities are listed on the label of the bottle, either individually or as a proprietary formula, but no picture of the label is available.
Because no ingredient quantities are provided for this diet pill, it is impossible to judge how strong the product is; on one end of the scale, this means that the diet pill may be totally ineffective, whilst at the other end of the scale, the product could be too strong, increasing the risks of use and the chances of developing unpleasant and even dangerous side effects.
Whilst caffeine is not listed as a separate ingredient in this diet pill, it is naturally present in both guarana and green tea. This is a stimulant to boosts the metabolism temporarily. The EGCG in green tea also aids weight loss, as does synephrine and chromium.
There are several ingredients that may aid weight loss, but there is mixed or limited clinical evidence, and so weight loss is not certain. Yohimbe extract has only limited clinical evidence, whilst Raspberry ketones has never been tested in humans.
Side effects associated with caffeine include headaches, increased urination, jitteriness, dehydration, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations and problems sleeping. Caffeine in turn enhances the effects of synephrine, which carries its own set of side effects, including increased heart rate and increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, fainting, and even heart attack and stroke in healthy patients.
Yohimbe has been linked with irregular or rapid heartbeat, kidney failure, seizure, and heart attack in rare cases. More common side effects include stomach upset, tremor, sleep problems, anxiety or agitation, high blood pressure, a racing heartbeat, dizziness, stomach problems, drooling, sinus pain, irritability, headache, frequent urination, bloating, rash, nausea, and vomiting.
Bioperine is known to increase the absorption of numerous medications, which can lead to accidental overdose when taking normally safe doses. It may also increase the absorption of the ingredients used within Saba X-treme 5000, which can make the effects of these ingredients, both good and bad, more dramatic.
Chromium can lower blood sugar levels. Whilst in many cases this can aid weight loss by regulating hunger cravings, diabetics should avoid using chromium supplements, as it can interfere with their medication. Diabetics who want to control their blood sugar levels whilst dieting and using a diet pill should consult their doctor before buying any product, and monitor their blood sugar levels.
Saba Trim Pro comes with no user warnings or health concerns, but from the ingredients profile we have identified the following areas for concern.

Anyone with a sensitivity to stimulants should avoid the use of this product.
Those who have health conditions which they are receiving medical treatment for should avoid the use of Saba X-treme 5000, as Bioperine affects the absorption of medications.
Those who have cardiac related health issues such as high blood pressure should also avoid this diet pill.
Not suitable for diabetics.
Going to the reviews available on Amazon.com, there are many reviews, even the positive ones, mentioning a wide range of side effects, including jitters, nausea, vomiting, racing heart, feeling nervous/anxious, red blotches on skin, swelling lips, flushed skin, headache, increased appetite, cold sweats, breathlessness, panic attacks, feeling restless, hives and increased blood pressure.
Use to take original ACE and was fine! Switched to the Xtreme 5000, will NEVER take again! I had an allergic reaction and actually passed out in a store! Had major jitters for hours after and was nauseas!
I took one capsule yesterday and about an hour after I took it, I started shaking uncontrollably, my heart was racing and pounding, I was getting cold sweats, and I was out of breath. About thirty minutes after that set in, I had a full blown panic attack. I do not have anxiety, nor have I ever had a panic attack. This stuff made me very sick. I am a healthy individual who just wanted an extra energy boost/appetite suppressant. It’s a good thing I was off work yesterday because after taking this, I had to lay down for the rest of the day/night and hope I didn’t have a heart attack. I almost went to the ER when I was having the panic attack, but luckily I had someone with me to help calm me down. I was honestly scared for my life. How this stuff is even allowed to be sold, I have no idea. I am imploring anyone who is considering buying this product-please do not do it. There are other, safer, ways out there to lose weight or get extra energy. This is not a safe product. I have spoken with other people who have taken this as well as an ACE distributor and they all had similar reactions.
There are a significant number of positive reviews as well, but even some of these mention experiencing some side effects.
This, at first, as expected did make me a bit shaky, hence you know it’s working. After the initial first few days while my body adjusted to the sped up metabolism, that shakiness disappeared.
Start with one pill a day in the morning – DO NOT take any of your usual caffeine with it!! Additional caffeine will only increase the jitters. This stuff will energize you more than a pot of coffee!
Does it work, heck yeah. Start slow, give your boys a week at least to adjust, and before you know it, you’ll drop the weight. One week in, I’ve dropped 6 pounds, and I changed nothing in my lifestyle. After the first week, I did a full body detox, fruits and veggies for 3 days, still on the pill, dropped 3 more. Now, I’m just maintaining, back to regular eating.
The ingredients list and a good proportion of the available customer reviews both suggest that this product aids weight loss. However, it does seem that the ingredients cause a range of side effects, with some people being unable to take the pill because of the side effects. If this product is too strong to use, obviously some customers are not going to lose any weight with the product.
Other customers have mentioned increased hunger and weight gain amongst the side effects, which seems to suggest that this product will not aid everyone. Without knowing the exact ingredient quantities it is hard to determine exactly what is causing some customers to lose weight, others to gain weight, and for many to experience unpleasant side effects.
Saba X-treme 5000 can be purchased from the official website for the Saba company. The standard retail price is $60.00 per bottle, although preferred customers who have signed up for an auto ship program will pay $40.00 per bottle. Saba Trim Pro can be bought from any Saba independent distributer, who will also more than likely try to sign up their customers to be consultants themselves.
At amazon.com the same product is available for $36.49 plus $4.50 shipping.
The product does not seem to come with any kind of money back guarantee.
The sales network is staffed by independent distributers who call themselves consultants, but do not need qualifications to back this up. Encouraging others to join the sales team is about the same level of priority as selling their actual products.
As we have established before in our review of Saba Trim Pro, we would advise customers to avoid this company, as it pushes customers to become sellers of the product, investing in much more than they would initially purchase for themselves, and promotes signing up to a ‘preferred’ customer scheme, which is merely an auto-ship program. Some of the independent websites have made it almost impossible to merely purchase the product without signing up as a consultant or for the preferred customer scheme.
It seems that Saba X-treme 5000 is a very strong product that causes a variety of unpleasant side effects. However, there are still customers who lose little weight despite these strong side effects. Without knowing the ingredient quantities, it is difficult to establish just how strong this product really is, and how it will benefit weight loss. Because of the number of people experiencing side effects, we would not recommend this product to our readers.
We reject Saba X-treme 5000.
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.
