When this review was written, the ingredients in the Xenadrine Ultimate formula included: Weight Loss and Metabolic Intensity Complex (Robusta Coffee Bean Extract, Caffeine Anhydrous, Yohimbe Bark Extract) and the Xenadrine Ultimate Complex (Garcinia Fruit Extract, L-Theanine, Spearmint Leaf Extract, Autumn Olive Fruit Extract, Ashwagandha Root and Leaf Extract).
The key ingredient in the formula is the robusta coffee bean extract. The official product page for Xenadrine Ultimate lists a study involving this ingredient, which found that this herb helped some study participants to lose an average of just over 10 pounds in 60 days with a low-calorie diet. Better known as Green Coffee Bean, this herb is believed to help boost metabolism and aid with fat loss. That being said, while some preliminary research seems promising, further study is required to determine just how effective and safe this extract is for weight loss.
Another key ingredient is garcinia cambogia, which is thought to help control appetite as well as help prevent certain fat from being digested by the body. Ashwagandha is thought to help lower cholesterol as well as reduce anxiety. Yohimbe is believed to help with exercise performance and may also help build muscle mass.
The claims made about this product in terms of it being beneficial for weight loss or weight management are unproven. Since this is the case, you should know that taking Xenadrine Ultimate to help you reach your weight loss goals may not necessarily produce the results you want.
With that in mind, you should speak with your healthcare provider before taking this product, especially if you are pregnant, nursing, have a medical condition or are currently taking medications. Furthermore, due to the stimulants in this product (e.g. caffeine), be advised that there is an increased risk that you might experience unpleasant side effects, such as insomnia, sleep disturbances, anxiety, heart palpitations, rapid heartbeat, headache, digestive upset, etc.
If you should decide that this diet pill is something you would like to take, be sure to assess your tolerance first. It is recommended that for the first 3 days you take 1 capsule twice per day, 20 – 60 minutes before your two main meals (e.g. breakfast and lunch). Day 4 and onward, you can take 2 capsules twice a day, 30 – 60 minutes before breakfast and lunch. For best results, use for 60 days with exercise and diet and drink plenty of water. You should also avoid snaking between meals and avoid taking this product 5 hours before bedtime to reduce the risk of side effects like insomnia.
