Ultra 90 is actual two supplements: a daytime formula and a nighttime formula. They can be taken separately or in combination, according to the company. The supplements contain a conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) brand called Tonalin, plus marine collagen, which according to the advertising, will enhance healthy living and help you reach your diet goal. There doesn’t seem to be any real evidence that either of this pairing will work though. In fact, the ingredients list seems to be identical for both products. We can only assume the quantities, and therefore the strengths, will differ, but we can’t confirm this as there is no information about how much of each ingredient is included.
We take an in-depth look at Ultra 90 to find out more.
It is hard to know what to make of Ultra 90. Tonalin is well known as a CLA supplement and some people do believe in this ingredient. Some research indicates that it may help the body lose fat and build muscle.
However, the other ingredients do not seem as convincing. There is no real evidence that taking marine collagen has any effect whatsoever on your joints and muscles and we are very concerned about taking unknown quantities of aloe vera internally.
Aloe Vera does come with some serious health concerns and is known for causing side effects. The lack of ingredient quantities information is also of serious concern.
The most likely side effects include nausea, gas, fatigue, stomach upset, diarrhoea, and stomach cramps.
A one month supply costs $44.99.
The Ultra 90 Daytime and Night time supplements contain Tonalin, a branded Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) supplement as a principle ingredient.
CLA is popular for weight loss and for bodybuilding because it is believed to help burn fat as well as build muscle mass.
CLA is a collective name for the group of chemicals composed of unsaturated omega 6 fatty acids and is a natural substance present in dairy products, beef, eggs and natural vegetable oils. It is obtainable by a natural diet but some evidence suggests that it is effective as a fat burner and the diet pills industry has been quick to market CLA supplements for fat loss. As a fat burner, it is different to most because it does not contain stimulants.
Tonalin is a trademarked good quality CLA brand that is available only to the supplements industry. The Tonalin brand shows up in many other CLA supplement brands including Blue Bonnet CLA, TLS Tonalin and more.
The other principle ingredient is marine collagen, specifically an amino acid called L Hydroxyproline, which according to the product information will feed and nourish the connective tissues such as muscles and tendons. The idea seems to be that this will help recovery after training and workouts.
Ultra 90 does contain additional ingredients and some of these are a matter for concern such as aloe vera. Although aloe vera is effective for skin and hair, when taken internally there are some major concerns about side effects.
Daytime Formula: Take 3 gel caps when you first wake up with a glass of water, wait one hour before you eat or drink anything else (other than water.) Do NOT go back to bed, take Ultra 90 AM when you are getting up and staying up! Must be taken alone!
Night Time Formula: Stop eating or drinking (other than water) 3 hrs. prior to bedtime, let your stomach digest. Take 3 gel caps with a glass of water and go to bed. Must be taken alone!
Strangely, although the advertising makes a point of advising that the supplements are designed for either daytime or night time use, it is hard to see any differences between them. They both contain exactly the same ingredients and if there are any differences is ingredient quantities, this information is not provided.
Ultra 90 does not come with much background information. The company behind the product is called Healthy Incentives Inc and is based in Sheridan Illinois. We have not found any issues associated with the company so it looks pretty safe to buy from.
According to the small print at the foot of the product page, all supplements are manufactured in the USA in FDA registered facilities and the company NEVER autobill. We feel that these good points should have been featured more prominently on the website.
There is an Ultra 90 Facebook page but although it looks quite good at first glance, it has not been updated for almost a year, which is strange and gives the product and the company a neglected look.
As well as Ultra 90 Daytime and Night time formula there is also an n Ultra 90 Eye Serum, which is sent free with each order. However, there are no further details about this product.
According to the advertising, “Over 2,000,000 bottles” have sold of this formula, a figure we are struggling to believe.
There are three advertised key features to CLA.
The product information attempts to explain the role of Conjugated Linoleic Acid:
Decades of research indicate that CLA (Conjugated Linoleic acid) actually changes body composition by reducing body fat and increasing or preserving lean muscle mass – giving you a leaner, healthier appearance.
Derived from natural safflower oil, CLA inhibits lipoprotein lipase, an enzyme that breaks down fat from our diets. Once fat is broken down, it is stored in the body. By suppressing this enzyme, CLA helps reduce the amount of fat that is broken down and, therefore, the amount of fat that is deposited and stored.
There are no links to any clinical evidence to prove the claims.
We don’t think that Ultra 90 will work very well, if at all, but without full ingredients information it is hard to say for sure.
However convincing the claims for Tonalin and CLA may seem to be, medical opinion is not convinced.
In a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized clinical trials, carried out over 6 months, a Meta analysis found serious flaws in many of the research methods.
In some tests, although CLA did appear to reveal a small significant difference in fat loss favouring CLA over placebo (MD: -1.33 kg; 95% CI: -1.79, -0.86; I (2) = 54%) effects were small, and the clinical relevance uncertain.
The conclusion was that the evidence from Random Controlled Trials does not convincingly show that CLA intake generates any clinically relevant effects on body composition on the long term.

Ultra 90 is a fat burner/ health supplement. Serving size is equal to three capsules. However, there is zero information about ingredient quantities so the following information is just a general overview. It is impossible to gauge hoe effective or strong this supplement is
Both the Daytime Formula and the Night Time Formula have an identical ingredient profile but may differ in the strength of the individual ingredients.
According to the product information, Ultra 90 is safe because it does not contain any “type of herb, stimulants, caffeine or other types of drugs.”
However, this is not strictly true because this supplement does contain Aloe Vera, and even ingredients that do not fall into the stimulant or caffeine category can still cause adverse effects.
CLA is known to sometimes cause:
Marine Collagen is safe for most people but you probably should avoid if you have any type of seafood allergy.
Aloe Vera may cause:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor first if you suffer from an underlying medical condition such as diabetes or heart disease and seek medical advice first if you are taking prescription medication in case of interactions.
We would advise you avoid if you have any allergies relating to seafood or latex.
We have been unable to find any independent reviews or customer testimonials for this supplement.
Ultra 90 is not covered by a money-back guarantee.
Ultra 90 is not on sale from any shops or stores and does not appear to be stocked by any third party sellers such as Amazon.
The easiest way to buy Ultra 90 is via the Ultra 90 website.
You can choose between the Day Time or Night Time Formula.
One bottle (90 capsules or one month’s supply) costs $44.99.
You can also buy the Night Time and Day Time in various combinations.
For example, one bottle of Daytime Formula (90 capsules) plus two bottles of Night time Formula (180 capsules) costs $90.00.
Alternatively, you can buy two bottles of Daytime Formula plus one bottle of Night Time Formula for the same price.
Three bottles of Daytime Formula (3-month supply) also costs $90.00. You can also buy three bottles of Night Time Formula for the same price.
Another option is to buy three bottles of Daytime Formula and three bottles of Night Time formula and take the supplements in combination. This option costs $145.00 and comes with a free gift of a bottle of eye serum.
As far as we can tell, shipping is free to US addresses.
International shipping is $20.00.
Ultra 90 is a confusing looking weight loss product. The two supplements in the weight loss programme have an identical looking ingredient profile yet are designed to be taken in either the morning or evening. In addition, you can choose to buy both supplements and take them in combination but with both supplements looking identical apart from the label there seems to be little point.
We have concerns about the Aloe Vera content. This ingredient is dangerous in high levels and known for causing side effects yet does not seem to have any application for weight loss. Marine collagen (collagen Hydrolysate) is equally unproven for helping improve muscles and alleviating joint pain.
In our opinion Ultra 90 would probably have been better had it just contained Tonalin which does seem safe and well tolerated although clinical testing suggests that weight loss effects are minimal so it may not be the great support as advertised.
We like that Ultra 90 seems pretty safe to buy and that the supplement is made in the USA. We are just not so keen on the supplement and a lack of customer feedback or any current information on the Ultra 90 Facebook page furthers this impression.
We don’t think that this supplement is really worth bothering with so for this reason we have no other option but to reject it.
