So What Is Total Ultraburn and What Are The Ingredients?

The ingredients used in Total Ultraburn are listed below. The ingredients list features some concentrated ingredients, which are given a ratio indicating the equivalent amount of the ingredient that is used. The figure given appears to be the quantity used before it was concentrated. The ingredient quantities provided are per serving of 3 Capsules. On training days consumers are instructed to take two servings, whilst on non-training days, consumers are instructed to take only one serving.

  • Vitamin B6 (10mg) (714% RDA*): Vitamin B6 has several important functions in the body, including ‘allowing the body to use and store energy from protein and carbohydrates in food’. Whilst taking excess amounts of vitamin B6 will not infinitely improve this ability, a deficiency could make it more difficult to lose weight. Vitamin B6 is naturally present in a wide variety of foods, including meat, cereals, bread and vegetables, and is often included in fortified breakfast cereals.

  • Vitamin B12 (30µg) (840% RDA*): Vitamin B12 is naturally present in many foods, primarily meat, fish and dairy products. It has several roles, including aiding in releasing energy from consumed food, and keeping the nervous system healthy. It may be that a deficiency hinders weight loss, but taking excess amounts could be, according to the NHS, potentially harmful.

  • Chromium (198µg) (495% RDA*): This is used primarily to lower fasting blood sugar levels and to lower insulin levels in people who have type 2 diabetes. In terms of its potential effect upon weight loss, it is possible that taking chromium picolinate by mouth for 2 to 3 months might produce a small weight loss of about 1.1 kg.

  • ALCAR (Acetyl L-Carnitine) (498mg): There is some evidence that supplementation of acetyl-l-carnitine can reduce body fat, although the strongest results were seen in the elderly. The ingredient also boosts energy levels, and is used to treat fatigue.

  • Green Tea Extract (10:1) (3789mg) (of which Polyphenols 360mg, of which EGCG 56mg): Green tea is high in a group of antioxidants called catechins. Studies have suggested that catechins and caffeine both increase energy expenditure by boosting the metabolism slightly for few hours.

  • Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) (300mg): Alpha lipoic acid is used in the body to break down carbohydrates and to make energy for the other organs in the body. Research links long term supplementation of large quantities of this antioxidant (1800mg per day) with some weight loss.

  • Caffeine (225mg): 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.

  • L-Tyrosine (201mg): Some people use L-Tyrosine as an appetite suppressant, but there is little clinical evidence that it is effective for this use. Large doses of tyrosine may be useful for increasing alertness, especially in people who are sleep deprived.
  • L-Theanine (126mg): This amino acid may play a small role in weight loss, as well as increasing feelings of relaxation. It may also reduce the negative side effects of caffeine, although there is seemingly no strong clinical evidence to support this claim.

  • Capsicum (8:1) (600mg): Capsicum contains Capsaicin, which is thought by some to play a role in weight loss. Some studies suggest it could suppress the appetite mildly, whilst others suggest that the heat causes a thermogenic reaction in the body, burning more calories for a period of time. However, there are also studies that show cayenne has little or no effect upon weight loss attempts.

  • Green Coffee Bean Extract (40:1) (2400mg): 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.

  • Black Pepper Extract (5mg): Black pepper extract is used for increasing the bioavailability of nutritional compounds. In other words, it increases the amounts of nutrients that are absorbed into the body in the digestive tract. It may also increase the absorption of various drugs, which may lead to potential side effects.

So What Does All This Mean?

The ingredients list contains numerous well-known dietary aids and ingredients that are commonly taken by gym and exercise enthusiasts in order to maximise their workout’s potential.

Green Coffee Bean is still often hyped up to be a great weight loss aid, despite a lack of evidence to support this. It is another source of caffeine, which may mildly increase the metabolism of the consumer.

Caffeine is made more effective by black pepper extract, as it allows greater absorption into the blood stream from the stomach. Theanine may reduce some of the potential side effects of caffeine, as well as creating a feeling of relaxation. Carnitine is often supplemented to reduce body fat, but the clinical evidence is limited in its support. Chromium can reduce blood sugar levels and is linked with very minimal weight loss over prolonged use.

When diet pill companies use ratios in their ingredients list, it usually indicates that the product is concentrated. However, it is often unclear whether the manufacturers list the concentrated quantity of each ingredient, or whether they list the original quantity, before the product was concentrated.

Does Total Ultraburn Have Any Side Effects?

With many different ingredients being used in Total Ultraburn, it is more than likely that some side effects may occur.

Caffeine can lead to headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness and insomnia. Consumers should avoid other sources of caffeine such as tea, coffee, energy drinks and soft drinks, especially on training days when consumers will be taking up to six capsules, which can contain a total of 550 mg of caffeine.

Bioperine increases the absorption rate of many ingredients, including caffeine, and so may make the side effects of these ingredients more likely or worse. Consumers who are taking medication are also more at risk of overdose because of this higher absorption rate, and so should consult their doctor before taking any product that contains bioperine or pepper extracts.

Chromium can lower blood sugar levels, and so diabetics should consult their doctor before ordering this product. Cayenne can cause heartburn and stomach aches, as well as increased sweating.

Supplementing alpha-lipoic acid may cause an upset stomach, numbness or a tingly feeling, dizziness, tired feeling, headache, muscle cramps and a mild skin rash. Supplementing L-carnitine can cause nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, heartburn, diarrhoea, and seizures.

Caution:

Contains 225mg caffeine per 3 capsule serving.

Not recommended for children or pregnant or breast-feeding women.

Discontinue use and seek medical advice if adverse reactions occur.

Do not exceed recommended use.

Not suitable for people with cardiac-related health problems, including high blood pressure.

Diabetics should consult their doctor before taking this product.

Any Total Ultraburn Reviews From Customers?

Currently there are no customer reviews for Total Ultraburn on the Protein Dynamix official website. The product is also not reviewed anywhere else by customers who have used the product.

This lack of reviews from customers is less than ideal, as reviews help to provide an accurate picture of just how effective the product really is.

So Does Total Ultraburn Work?

Without any customer reviews it is much more difficult to accurately establish just how effective this product really is. Without this additional anecdotal information, the only information available is the ingredients list. The manufacturers do provide individual ingredient quantities, which helps us to establish the relative strength and importance of each ingredient used in the formula.

The two ingredients used in Total Ultraburn that have the strongest clinical support are green tea and caffeine. The large quantity of caffeine used could easily cause side effects, especially on training days when consumers are taking up to six capsules per day.

There is a huge amount of green coffee bean in each serving, but the ingredient is not as effective as one fraudulent clinical trial had suggested, leaving it to be an unproven ingredient used in many diet pills, despite a total lack of clinical support.

Where Can I Buy Total Ultraburn?

A single bottle of Total Ultraburn costs £24.99 plus delivery charges from the official Protein Dynamix website. Free delivery is available for orders over £50.

It appears that at present, Total Ultraburn is not available at any third party online retailers.

Watchdog Verdict

One big disadvantage of Total Ultraburn is the sheer number of capsules that consumers need to take each day. On training days, consumers are instructed to take as many as six capsules.

The company also fails to offer a money back guarantee, and their returns period is a short 14 days from the delivery date. However, the product is also fairly inexpensive per bottle, although with the huge variations in daily dosing, the product may be used very quickly. Depending upon the consumers daily dosage, a single bottle could last anywhere between 15 and 30 days.

As for the product itself, there is a mixture of strong weight loss ingredients and ingredients that have little clinical support and are unlikely to aid weight loss. The large amount of caffeine used in this product could easily cause side effects, especially on training days.

There are also ingredients that are not directly related to weight loss, or that are present in insufficient quantities here to aid significant weight loss.

Overall, the quantities of each ingredient used in Total Ultraburn is less than ideal, and so this, along with a number of other issues listed above, mean that we cannot recommend this diet pill to our readers.
