Luckily when it comes to foods that will supply your brain with the proper energy and nutrition that it needs, there are plenty of food choices out there that will do the job. The trick to maintaining proper function however is making sure that you are getting a consistent steady supply of these nutrients to your brain, which unfortunately most people aren’t doing properly.

Here Are Some Suggestions as to What Foods You Should Be Eating to Boost Your Brain Power

Breakfast

preview-full-shutterstock_557894209As we have all heard the saying before, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and for good reason. After an entire night of sleeping where your body is deprived of the nutrients it desperately needs, your body needs these essential ingredients and is craving for them. Make sure you are eating a full balanced meal even if you have to force yourself to do so.

Oatmeal- Oatmeal is a powerful whole grain that contains the necessary ingredients to make the glucose which our brain runs on. Oatmeal is a good base to work with, and becomes a power food when combines with healthy fats from flax seeds for example, along with powerful brain boosting antioxidants found in berries. Add in a banana for some extra calories, fiber and heart healthy potassium as well.

Yogurt Smoothie- When it comes to nutritional value and ease of preparation, nothing can really beat a good yogurt smoothie. Yogurt contains a good source of protein and probiotics which help improve cognitive functioning. Yogurt is best paired with a healthy fat from peanut butter for example, along with berries for their fiber and antioxidants, along with a banana for fiber and calories as well.

Eggs- Eggs are arguably the best stand alone food when concerning about improving memory, concentration and performance overall. Eggs are packed with protein, vitamins and minerals which all help to improve how your brain functions.

Lunch

When thinking about lunch, it is usually something that is rushed and is done out of convenience. Because of this, many people turn to fast food and other heavily processed foods because they are readily available and require no preparation. These foods are usually packed with artificial ingredients, salts, sugars and fats which will be detrimental to how fast our brains are able to process information.

To put it easily, fast food items and processed foods are ones we want to stay away from because they will not only not be beneficial but could actually do us harm. Try to choose an alternative that has less calories and is lighter on the sugars, salts and fats as well.

Salads-Salads should be your go to food choice when it comes to lunch for a variety of reasons. First of all you can preview-full-shutterstock_576313399add numerous items to your salad which can help to mix things up a bit in the interest of not being bored with what you are eating. In addition to this, adding things to your salad like nuts, seeds and proteins will improve the nutritional profile of the salad as well, or make it even more healthy for you.

If you are uncertain of how to build a nutritionally balanced meal consisting of salad, try to incorporate greens, good fats from nuts or seeds, protein from chickpeas, chicken or turkey, and antioxidants from dried cranberries or raisins for example.

There are so many different salad combinations that are healthy food choices which makes the salad a great versatile choice when it comes to lunch.

DINNER

When searching for healthy dinner choices the best place to start is with a whole grain. Whole grains will supply your body steadily over a long period of time with the energy it needs. Eating whole grains is what keeps you satiated until breakfast the next morning.

Seafood-Baking or grilling fish like salmon or trout for example are good sources of healthy omega 3 fatty acids which contribute to health brain functioning.

Whole grains- Rice, whole wheat pasta, oats and barley are rich in carbohydrates, omega 3 fatty acids and fiber which your body needs to maintain health brain functioning.

 Supplements

There are effective supplements out on the market like Brain Gain which will help to improve cognitive function as well. If you can’t get all the necessary nutrients you need from food sources, supplements are a viable alternative option as well.

Product Introduction

In terms of fresh ideas and cutting-edge technologies, the male enhancement industry continues to flourish. We continuously see new supplements being developed and offered for sale, adding the large amounts of male enhancement products in the market. However, we all know that products of excellent quality are rare. There are also many instances where supposed-to-be new supplements aren’t really new but are just imitations of other products. Worse, some of these products are even created for the purpose of making quick money.

This article will tackle MD Science Lab Max Size Male Enhancement Cream. This is a product that guarantees to heighten your sexual performance with its distinctive topical formulation. It also ensures to deliver an instant transdermal delivery procedure, so that the components in Max Size are absorbed by the body rapidly. The faster the absorption, the faster you can expect for results to become visible. The concept behind this product is to increase the flow of blood to the penis in order to obtain more solid erections, as well as endurance that’ll last a significant period of time.

What Are the Components Present?

The ingredient profile is the core of any product that aspires to bring on significant changes. As for Max Size, below are the components involved in its formulation:

ButeaSuperba
Botanical Extract
Propylene Glycole
Dimethicone
Polysorbate-80
Glycerine
Carbomer
Aloe Vera Gel
Menthol
Peppermint Oil
Niacin
Diazolidinyl urea
Iodopropynylbutlcarbamate
Tromethanamine

Does Max Size Work for Real?

preview-full-59a-1

The company behind Max Size states that their product has ButeaSuperba, which is a recognized PDE-5 inhibitor. With the presence of this ingredient, it means that Max Size can generate effects like that of Cialis and Viagra. While they elaborate on the efficiency of this ingredient and the studies that confirm that it really works, the company failed to include information confirming if ButeaSuperba could be really soaked up by the skin.

For apparent reasons, transdermal process is a complicated course to achieve. This is why we ingest Ibuprofen orally to ease our pain, use Demerol for IV and take mild Benzocaine for topical use. The point is, something may work when taken orally, but it can be a different story if it’s to be used topically through transdermal procedure.

Reading feedbacks on the web where we learned that several customers are specifically concerned due to the involvement of Menthol and Peppermint oil to the product’s formulation. Sure, menthol is required to open up the pores in order to enable the components to be taken in through the skin. On the other hand, it’s certainly an uncomfortable and maybe even painful feeling with the cooling and burning sensation that it’ll have on a man’s penis and on a woman’s vagina during sex. This is where it becomes a predicament, because no man would want to encounter such strange sensation on his sexual organ, and no woman would want to feel that, either. This could ruin a sexual encounter, actually.

We’ve assessed transdermal patches before and even though their formulations seem to be inefficient, at least they make sense in terms of their ingredients. The same cannot be said to Max Size, thanks to the presence of menthol in its formula.

What’s the Conclusion?

Naturally, you want a male enhancement product that works with no hassles. That’s why it’s important to go for what’s simple as long as it’s effective. The most excellent products are the ones that can give you better sexual functions and improve your performance in bed without making you do much, let alone allow you to encounter strange or uncomfortable sensations in your penis.

About BSN Hyper FX

This particular product is a pre-workout product created by the manufacturer BSN. It is promoted as a supplement that can help you increase your levels of energy during your workout sessions. With heightened energy, you’re able to perform more effectively at the gym. It also helps your body endure extreme workouts from top to bottom.

shutterstock_558821248

The company BSN is recognized for their production of nutritional supplements of excellent quality. Shockingly, its pre-workout product, Hyper FX, is not as well-received as the company’s other supplements. The reasons for this are varied. There are some customers who criticize the product’s true capacity, which is said to be not as effective as its manufacturer claims it to be. Other grievances from users include its poor taste and the side effects brought by the caffeine in the formula.

Nevertheless, there are still several positive feedbacks that discuss the supplement’s efficiency in helping users have increased energy for better physical or athletic performance. In these testimonials, consumers stated their appreciation of Hyper FX’s overall features, functions and performance.

But how effectual Hyper FX really is? Are the positive gains you can get from taking this supplement worth any negative repercussions, if there are any? This article will explore the product further to help you come up with an informed decision prior to proceeding with your purchase of this supplement. This way, you’re sure of the product you’re using and you’re money is not wasted on the wrong brand.

How Efficient Is Hyper FX?

Users of Hyper FX who used it the first time immediately thought that the powder is not easily mixed like many pre-workout products. For example, sometimes the powder clusters, which leads to a cluttered powder blend that has grainy aftertaste. In general, powder mixes that don’t blend greatly become very difficult to absorb in the system. This could be behind why other customers didn’t notice any remarkable results like Hyper FX’s company has promised.

shutterstock_548586616

Several consumers also claimed that the grape flavor of Hyper FX kind of stinks, while other customers said they experienced gassiness with the use of this product. Aside from these, there are also reported side effects that include vomiting, nausea, and tingles.

Just like other products that have caffeine, Hyper FX also has side effect brought by its caffeine such as boosted alertness. While it is a welcome effect for some, for others it is not as it also means higher blood pressure, palpitations, sleep problems and angina. Also, it is important to note that the high surge of energy that the manufacturer guaranteed was not present in several of the user tests.

Moreover, Hyper FX has a gentle thermogenic effect that only works while the caffeine kicks in. With this, you can anticipate your core temperature to increase but this effect is fleeting. Those individuals who have caffeine sensitivity also encountered their energy plummeting as quickly as two hours after their consumption of the supplement.

What Are the Components Present?

The company has categorized its primary components into Hyper-FX™ Peak Proprietary blend. These are:

Endura Fusion:

Betaine Anhydrous
Taurine
CarnoSyn®
Magnesium Oxide
Boron Citrate
Zinc Gluconate
Cholecalciferol
Thermic Matrix:

Choline Bitartrate
L-Tyrosine
Caffeine Anhydrous
AstraGin®
Shock Composite:

L-Arginine
DMAE Bitartrate
Thiamin HCl
Cyancobalamin
Niacin

All these components are intended to give customers a 3-part mixture of stamina, energy and drive. However, the concentration of the aforementioned components is not divulged by the company.

What are the Product Features?

The supplement is said to have excellent ingredients that induce thermogenesis.
It comes from a reputable company; hence, the brand is more trusted.

What’s the Bottom Line?

It is not as impressive as other supplements manufactured by BSN, mainly because it has some negative feedbacks online questioning its true efficacy and even the quality of its powder mix. But while it has poor comments from some customers, there are others who are satisfied with its performance. Thus, its effectiveness may depend on the individual as the effects vary for every person.

It will be no surprise to you when I say that your brain is in complete control when it comes to engineering an invention or creating a sculpture or painting. These activities require the brains’ full and undivided attention to perform our best and achieve our goals.

What may be a surprise however is that your brain is as in much control of your workout as it is when you are doing rocket science. How fast, how long and how intense of a workout you want is by in large determined by your brain and state of mind at the time.

For years it was believed by laymen and experts alike that our body begins to shut down in response to muscle fatigue and over use due to lack of oxygen. What recently has been found however is that our brains in fact control this, and that they instruct our body to cease exercising as a preventative measure. We know this because in testing endurance athletes, they tend to stop performing well before their muscles are depleted of oxygen as we expected.

With that being said, we now know for certain that being mentally tough and prepared can help you get the most out of your workout.

I Don’t Have the Time Excuse

shutterstock_150268346This is the most common excuse that people use today to get out of their workout routine. The fact of the matter is that there are plenty of exercise programs and routines on the market that are specifically designed for this type of person in mind, many of these programs being effective.

Studies show that Americans have a lot more free time than they think they do, in most cases close to double. The problem is that most of this free time comes in small chunks, and is usually not one large block of free time.

The solution to this is to choose a workout that fits your schedule. Actually sit down, plan and write out when you are going to exercise, where you are going to exercise and what routine you are going to do that day. This is so that all the preparation and planning is done ahead of time and you can just hope right in to your workout routine.

Since our free time is limited and we are only available at very specific times of day, it is best to tailor out workout around this schedule. For example, if you have a half hour of free time one morning and then again later on that evening, you want to do the more strenuous exercise in the morning so that you aren’t up all night. You can schedule moderate to light exercises at night to wind things down and make it easier for you to fall asleep as well.

It is also important to keep a diary or log of your daily routine and the progress you made.  This will make it very easy to determine exactly what progress you made in what frame of time, giving you a good idea of how to go forward as well.

Take note at the end of each week to see how you’ve progressed. Chances are with this method you will be making more progress than anticipated, and you can then modify your routine to progress even further at a much faster pace as well.

Workouts Aren’t Fun

shutterstock_293965973Planning out a workout routine can be tiresome and boring. Then trying to do the workout itself by yourself can be intimidating and challenging. One way to get around this is to get a friend to workout with you. Doing the routine with someone else along with you makes it seem like it is more manageable, and gives you the confidence to do so.

Exercising with a friend can turn your workout from something you dread to something you look forward to day in and day out.

Introducing Ultra SX

Does a male enhancement product that only costs $5.49 function just how it’s being advertised? This is the case with the supplement called Ultra SX. It is claimed to be a male enhancement product that works like a lightning. It’s fast and thorough and can be taken only when you need it unlike others that need to be ingested regularly. All you need to do is take Ultra SX 30 minutes before having sex and you can expect to have an amazing sexual performance, as claimed by its manufacturer. For a product that’s only around $5, this is a great deal, specifically if you’re thinking of purchasing those male enhancement supplements that have to be taken regularly and cost $1 each pill per day. Nevertheless, Ultra SX is quite costly at $5.49 for a pill when measured up to other similar products you can find.

sex-with-your-ex-a-mistake

Essentially, Ultra SX doesn’t function like how others function. It’s one of a kind, as purported by the company behind it. For one, it’s not being sold per bottle. It is offered in single or double packages. You also don’t need to worry about taking it on a regular basis because you’re not required to do that with Ultra SX. In fact, you only have to take this product when you need to, specifically before engaging in a sexual activity. As we all know, taking male enhancement pills on a regular basis can be inconvenient. This seems ideal, except for the fact that FDA included this particular supplement in their list of spoiled or stained sexual health products. The aforementioned list has all the brands of products that are said to be polluted with prohibited components. As for Ultra SX, it is reported that FDA discovered that the supplement also consists of Sildenafil, which is an active component found in Viagra.

How Efficient Is This?

If you don’t consider what FDA has reported about Ultra SX, the components in the product’s formula are enough to make you think twice about disregarding this supplement. This is because Ultra SX has a set of components that are not usual in the male enhancement industry.

140329044016132-sex123456Based on the information provided, Ultra SX’s components are as follows:

Wolf berry extract

Smilax Regelii

Rhizoma Polygonati

Rhodiola Rosea

Cyanotis Vaga

Cortex Cinnamon

Note that none of these components are utilized by top products in the industry. The formulation in itself does not even evidently show the technology utilized in order to make it fast-acting, as claimed by its company. Essentially, products that are quick-acting are not common in the industry. This is due to the fact that not several natural components can be soaked in quick enough to be used before sex. In fact, even pharmaceutical medications can take 30-40 minutes before you can feel their effects. Plus, there’s a group of anonymous components that makes it less persuasive for the product to be effectual in time before a sexual activity – unless, of course, it involves something else. This brings us back to the aforementioned presence of the banned component called Sildenafil.

Why Supplements and Drugs Don’t Mix?

ScreenSnapz3-e1311758603590Generally, combining medications with supplements without announcing the components in the formulation is highly detrimental. This is especially true to those suffering from medical illnesses. Apparently, there’s a significant medical reason why the FDA necessitates everyone to have a doctor’s prescription before they’re allowed to purchase drugs for treating erectile dysfunction. The medical reason behind this is because the adverse reactions can prove to be severely damaging and even lethal to the consumer. Medications can trigger allergies, drug resistance, interactions and the worsening of a current medical condition. All these must be assessed by a doctor.

Final Recommendation: Is Ultra SX the One?

If you’re looking for something that functions like a Viagra and you don’t have a doctor’s prescription, then Ultra SX can be an option. You just have to be cautious of its proper use to avoid experiencing any side effects. If not, it’s wiser to go for those herbal Viagra substitutes.

Introducing NeuroGum

preview-full-shutterstock_524518951NeuroGum is a nootropic supplement, which features a patented blend of caffeine, l-theanine, and B-vitamins.

But unlike other brain boosters, NeuroGum, as its name implies, is just something that comes as a mint-flavored gum that guarantees to be free from aspartame.

When you chew this product, its manufacturer touts that you’re bound to feel improvement in your focus and concentration, memory and overall mental capacities. It is also said to be capable of lessening your stress while allowing your brain to sustain its wellness. All these benefits are said to be accomplished without side effects like jittering or crashing.

If you think about it, improving your cognition by simply chewing a gum sounds like something straight out of a fiction story. But NeuroGum exists in real life. We’re not just sure if its claimed positive effects that can help improve the brain also happen for real. Let’s find out below.

First, let’s discuss what nootropics are.

Defining Nootropics

Generally, nootropics are those supplements that are developed for the purpose of boosting your memory and overall cognition, as well as help you learn faster and better with your improved mental performance. Most nootropic products in the present are categorized as nutritional supplements and not prescription medications. Nutritional supplements are essentially perceived by the FDA as food. What does this signify?

Companies the produce nutritional supplements can create any assertions they please without being required to divulge substantial clinical evidence to prove their claims.

In the last few years, we have evaluated so many nootropic supplements here. This includes the prominent brands such as Brain Storm Elite and Addium, to name a few. Generally, the customer reception for such kinds of products is not very positive.

Most of these supplements only garner 2-stars as their average scores. The complaints are mostly about ineffectiveness, steep costs and the troubles customers get into trying to discontinue autoship plans and getting refunds.

However, this does not directly imply that you will experience the same with NeuroGum.

How Effective Are the Components?

Below are the components involved in NeuroGum’s formula:

Caffeine 40mg
L-Theanine 60mg
Vitamin B6 (30% daily value)
Vitamin B12 (100% daily value)

It is important to note that the Recommended Daily Allowances or RDA can differ from one individual to another. For instance, the RDA of Vitamin B12 can go between 2.4mcg-100mcg. This, of course, depends on your age, gender and if you’re a woman, whether or not you’re expecting.

Fortunately, there’s a product label included, which means that we’re told of the dosages for each component. Most companies leave out this information. Nevertheless, we think it’s strange that the company only indicated the RDAs for Vitamin B6 and B12 and not their actual dose or content.

Moreover, caffeine is largely recognized for its capacity to increase alertness. It is also considered to be potentially efficient for augmenting memory in certain situations. In the studies subjecting caffeine, 200mg of it was used each day, but NeuroGum only has 40mg.

Meanwhile, L-theanine is a form of amino acid that helps transports nerve impulses in the brain, but there’s not sufficient proof demonstrating that it can generate any significant gains when orally ingested.

Lastly, vitamins B6 and B12 are vital for the body and can deliver multiple health gains, just not the ones promised by the supplement’s company.

What About its Absorption?

Generally, components function and potency is felt when absorbed by the body. The more the body can take in, the better the components function and respond.

Most brain boosters are in capsule forms and orally ingested. They’re naturally digested by the stomach, transported into the bloodstream, where they start their work.

Even as we don’t really absorb 100 percent of anything we consume, oral ingestion generally absorbs more components than just via the inner lining of the mouth. Besides, if the skin was not choosy about what it soaked up, we would become ill right away.

The point here is that NeuroGum is a gum, so it is not ingested. This means that its ingredients will be absorbed less compared to the conventional nootropic products.

Defining Cold Compressed

The company behind NeuroGum asserts that the product being “cold compressed” brings maximum efficiency, although this doesn’t seem to be an official terminology.

We looked it up and we found the term, but it generally makes a reference to oils that are created at temperatures lower than 120 degrees.

What are the Adverse Reactions?

preview-full-shutterstock_471869396Naturally, high consumption of caffeine can produce side effects, including sleeping problems, jitters, digestive discomfort, boosted heart rate and many others.

The good thing is that NeuroGum only has 40mg of caffeine for every dose. This is lower compared to 95mg in an 8oz of coffee. Thus, the caffeine content in the supplement should be tolerated by most consumers, unless you’re highly sensitive to stimulants.

Where to Get the Product?

This supplement can only be purchased through the manufacturer. A 6-pack NeuroGum cost $18 from its original price of $19.50 while a 12-pack also costs $18 from its original price of $39, which is odd. You can also subscribe to their email list to get 15% and 20% discounts.

Final Recommendation: Is NeuroGum a Cutting-Edge Cognitive Enhancer?

Though NeuroGum is a unique brain booster, being a gum instead of a capsule, its components lack the credible clinical proof demonstrating that they totally work as claimed by the product’s company.

The caffeine in this product may cause momentary boosted alertness and focus, but so does a cup of coffee. Its form, being a mint-flavored may be something new that will get people want to try it, but the components themselves are not groundbreaking. Whether NeuroGum is worth considering or not will depend on its cost.

Realized Nootropics: At a Glance

This brain supplement touts to be a dietary product that makes use of 14 purely natural components to aid in the optimization of memory, restoring brain capacities and overall health, produce mental energy, boost mental focus, and decrease oxidative stress. Given this, Realized Nootropics is touted to be developed with the purpose of helping you preserve information, conduct normal tasks more proficiently, and improve your concentration. Simply put, Realized Nootropics is said to help you become more prolific in your daily life.

This is achieved by causing 3 biological modifications, which are:

preview-full-shutterstock_161572154

Refilling crucial nutrients and amino acids that increase your body’s generation of primary neurotransmitters like acetylcholine and GABA.

Delivering a healthy dosage of nutrients that can aid in the enhancement of blood flow to the brain, decreasing the effects of stress, and soothing the mind.

Giving potent anti-oxidants that can aid in the prevention of free radical damage and give other neuroprotective gains.

Of course, all these seem excellent, but surely you’re looking for something that truly delivers, something that can help you with your daily life by performing your tasks incredibly. In this sense, can Realized Nootropics make a difference?

Understanding How the Components Function

Some of the components contained in the supplement have been demonstrated to generate specific gains beneficial for the brain, but in very specific situations. For example, huperzine and vinpocetine can help to address mental deterioration in people with Alzheimer’s, Bacopa Monnieri for recall when using particular extracts, phosphatidylserine and Acetyl-L-Carnitine for mental deterioration caused by aging, and L-tyrosine for enhancing mental focus following sleep deprivation.

On the other hand, there’s not enough scientific proof that Alpha-GPC, forskolin, artichoke extract, pterostilbene, vitamin B6, L-theanine, oat straw, and L-Phenylalanine can credibly enhance mental capacities or avoid memory loss in healthy individuals with normal brains.

We believe that the inclusion of forskolin in the supplement’s formula provides significant understanding into the level of clinical proof they necessitate for every component they have. This is due to the fact that the proof demonstrating that increased cAMP levels can help promote weight loss is tiny at best. Plus, the peer-reviewed clinical proof illustrating it can help increase mental capacities remains in its slightest.

While we were not informed how their supplement was developed, who it was developed by, or where the components come from, Realized Nootropics asserts that their product has no reported adverse reactions, that the components it includes have been comprehensively studied and documented with no determined physical manifestations. Furthermore, WebMD said that even as nearly all of the components in Realized Nootropics are believed to be harmless, they still highlighted that huperzine and forskolin must not be used by people with heart problems, bacopa must not be used for over 12 weeks at a time, and l-theanine must not be used for over three weeks.

What Users Have to Say?

The supplement has only begun its promotion, thus there were no user feedbacks at the time of this writing. What we found were some reviews that were obviously not legitimate.

We also learned that Realized Nootropics is a division of All-Organic Marketing Ltd., which is mainly headquartered in Alberta, Canada. It is listed with Better Business Bureau where it has an A- rating as of November 2014. It had no customer issues during the time of our research. But BBB only made a file for the said company in May 2014.

Realized Nootropics Cost and Money-Back Guarantee

Every bottle of the product has 30 capsules. This can last up to 15 days. Below are the pricing options:

1-Month Supply (2 bottles): $50

3-Month Supply: $160 (This means you’ll pay $10 more for a 3-month supply than if you selected three 1-month supplies individually)

14-Day Trial: $2.95

Whatever selection you order, shipping of the product is free of charge.

If you select the 14-day trial, you will get a 30-day supply (2 bottles) of the product and the trial starts from the date the order is made. If you do not cancel within the 14-day period, you will be charged $50 for the 2 bottles you initially received. Subsequently, you will be listed in their autoship program, allowing you to get a monthly supply on a regular basis, charging your credit card with the full amount each time.

The information on the product site said that you can expect to see a positive outcome within 90 days or you can ask for your money back, less shipping and handling. But remember that this is only applicable to your first bottle. The following bottles must be unopened to be accepted.

For your concerns regarding refunds, trial and autoship cancellations, you have to contact them at 855-530-6884. You can also reach them via their contact form on their site.

As we’ve said several times, free trials and subsequent autoship enrollments are red flags you need to watch out for. This scheme is more about getting as much money from the customers rather than building expedience. It is also a fact that this is quite usual in the supplement industry, but several of the reputable companies don’t practice such program.

Is Realized Nootropics the One to Give You Mental Edge?

preview-full-shutterstock_304868180Sure, the supplement has the potential to help you by giving neurodegenerative gains. However, WebMD said that many of its components don’t have enough scientific foundation that they are indeed valuable in delivering significant brain benefits.

Plus, Realized Nootropics is relatively a new supplement, hence the lack of consumer reviews on the web. It is hard to measure the overall satisfaction level on a customer standpoint if there aren’t any reviews from real users. For this reason, we suggest that you consult with your doctor first about other efficient means of improving your brain’s functions and overall health before proceeding with Realized Nootropics.

PreOPS: At a Glance

PreOPS is a pre-workout supplement that’s created by the company Dark Ops Fitness. It is touted to enable the body expand its limits, so that your performance at the gym is enhanced. This is achieved through the use of components that are said to have undergone clinical studies, proving their potency and safety. In contrast with many muscle development products, PreOPS prides itself in being a pre-workout supplement that has no exclusive blends. Its components are basically an open book. Here they are:

morning-workouts-2Creatine Monohydrate 5g
Betaine Anhydrous 2g
Carnosyn Beta-Alanine 1.5g
L-Taurine 1.5g
Aminoblast Instantized L-Leucine 1g
L-Isoleucine 500mg
L-Valine 500mg
Beet Root Extract 350mg
Caffeine Anhydrous 200mg
White Willow Bark Extract (std. min. 25% salicin)

PreOPS is also said to be manufactured in a laboratory that’s been sanctioned by the Food and Drug Administration, as well as in a place that’s GMP-certified in the United States. Plus, the product is also purported to be tested for spotlessness and superiority by a third-party laboratory.

With this, will PreOPS deliver its promise of giving you a lean, toned and ripped body? Or are these empty promises? Think of these factors:

The Components and their Efficacy

Basing on clinical information that’s accessible, some of the components in this product may be effectual for exercising, training or for boosting physical functions for athletic purposes.

WorkoutFor instance, the ingredient creatine may aid in the boosting of one’s athletic performance. But it comes tricky since creatine’s effects vary depending on the person who takes it and whether the dose is enough to create any significant changes. Carnosyn beta-alanine may also aid in the enhancement of one’s physical functions, particularly during rigorous workouts and strength training. L-leucine on the other hand, seems to be promising in its capacity to help, though more clinical tests have yet to be performed. Until then, it cannot be linked to muscle development and increased overall performance.

Lastly, beetroot has high content of nitrates. This may aid in the reduction of blood pressure and enhance the circulation of blood throughout the body. The outcome is a much better athletic functions and general performance. Meanwhile, L-isoleucine and l-valine are vital amino acids, also recognized as BCAAs, that aid in delivering energy to muscles, as well as contribute for muscle restoration and recuperation.

On the other hand, while caffeine may heighten mental alertness and give a momentary surge of energy, it won’t produce any permanent health gains. Worse, this may even prompt you to ‘crash’ after. This depends on your sensitivity to stimulants.

As for betaine, l-taurine, or white willow bark, the clinical evidence suggesting that these said components can result to any form of athletic or physical performance gains is weak and lacking.

What Users Have to Say About PreOPS?

This particular supplement is produced by Elite Provisions, LLC that is mainly headquartered in Addison, Texas. However, neither Elite Provisions nor Dark Ops Fitness is registered with the Better Business Bureau. The latter’s URL was even just registered in July 2014. Hence, we didn’t find any online feedbacks discussing the company or any of their products.

Bottom Line

It’s a good thing that several of the components in this pre-workout supplement show benefits that can help you maximize your training efforts. But it’s only important to note that, at best, all it can do is provide you with an edge. Simply put, if you’re expecting to get a ripped and toned physique after a month just because you’re taking PreOPS and doing a couple of workouts weekly, then you’ll just be frustrated. It doesn’t work like that.

But if you’ve been training hard and practicing proper nutrition for a while and you feel that a bit of an extra boost is necessary, then PreOPS may help you achieve this. As mentioned, it’s just designed to give you a boost. In the end, you’ll be the judge as for this product’s effectiveness.

SlimXo Clitramine: At a Glance

This weight loss supplement, SlimXo Clitramine, is said to be a cutting-edge solution for losing weight. It is touted to help those who are overweight and those suffering from obesity by letting them lose up to three times more weight compared to just dieting and working out solely. This is achieved by strapping to soluble and insoluble fat during digestion and removing it from the body.

Based on the information from the supplement’s manufacturer, the trademarked formulation of SlimXo Clitramine helps curb your appetite, lessen your unhealthy food cravings, boost your levels of energy, alleviate stress and lose the extra pounds. It is claimed that these benefits can be obtained without the need to modify your everyday eating regimen and without working out. With this, SlimXo Clitramine declares itself as “the most effective and powerful weight loss formula in the market”.

What are the Components in SlimXo Clitramine?

The product uses the following components:

los-mejores-termogenicos-para-mujeres (1)Gum Acacia: it has glycoproteins and polyscaccharides that could potentially help you shed pounds.
Cactus Root: this is rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants, which could aid in slowing down aging while you also shed pounds.
Trigonella: this has natural proteins that may help increase the body’s mechanism to lose weight.
Furthermore, SlimXo Clitramine touts that’s been featured on some TV programs like Dr. Oz, Daily Mail and BBC. The supplement is said to be clinically shown to generate weight loss effects without adverse reactions.

Surely, it is frustrating to undergo rigorous fitness regimen and practice a strict diet without seeing any substantial weight loss outcome. With this said, can SlimXo Clitramine make a difference? You can think of the following considerations:

Verifying the Clitramine Issue

Weight-Loss-Tips-for-WomenFor one, the principal ingredient in SlimXo Clitramine is not Clitramine, but a compound called Litramine. Litramine is the product mentioned in an episode (Flush Fat Fast) of Dr. Oz that was aired on May 7, 2014. Both compounds are patented, but there are no details on the SlimXo Clitramine page explaining the difference between Clitramine and Litramine.

Aside from this, the official page of the product doesn’t have a product label. Hence you cannot verify if the product really contains the ingredients it says it has, or what the precise quantity is included in every serving.

Given this, Dr. Oz suggested to find for the one that’s 100 percent pure on the label. A total of 3 grams each day is also suggested, 1 gram every meal. With regards this recommendation, the SlimXo Clitramine site mentions that it is 100 percent natural, but not 100 percent pure. There’s also no information on the precise quantity each dose has. Moreover, a bottle of this supplement has 60 capsules that is said to last for 30 days. Thus, it would appear that the company behind SlimXo is not being consistent with Dr. Oz’s recommendations.

The Influence of Dr. Oz

Following the aforementioned feature on Dr. Oz, the number of Litramine products has increased, which many call the Dr. Oz Effect.

Given this, SlimXo Clitramine URL was listed in October 2014. This implies that the manufacturer of SlimXo Clitramine is only following the trend.

Is there Clinical Proof?

The only clinical proof there is showing Litramine’s efficiency is on a German research conducted in 2012. In this study, the following conclusion came to be: “Compared with placebo, IQ [Litramine] also showed significantly greater reduction in BMI, body fat composition, and waist circumference. IQ [Litramine] was well tolerated with no adverse reactions reported.”

On the Dr. Oz TV program, the host said that said research was published in Obesity journal and asserted that dieters taking Litramine shed around a half pound more every week, or around 5.3 pounds over the course of the study, which was 12 weeks.

It is also important to note that this is the only research conducted on Litramine and it doesn’t mention the SlimXo Clitramine’s formula. To further, this study doesn’t really support the company’s assertions that SlimXo Clitramine can help you shed pounds three times more.

Lastly, while a Dr. Richard Pletcher says on the product site that his patients shed an average of 5-8 lbs each week from taking SlimXo Clitramine, it’s validated that, according to the outcome of the clinical study mentioned earlier, these people were taking Clitramine in addition to proper dieting and regular exercise as part of a weight loss management plan. On the other hand, it wasn’t specified how much of the total weight loss can be credited to the use of the supplement alone and how much can be credited to living a healthy life.

SlimXo Clitramine Marketing Ploys

Another point we want to highlight is the fact that the SlimXo Clitramine site makes use of the standard weight loss website set-up. This includes the image of a great-looking model with its ultimate guarantee about its self-proclaimed effectiveness. You will also read the following: “Due to recently being featured on T.V. we cannot guarantee supply. As of today we currently have product IN STOCK and READY to ship within 24 hours of purchase.” This is obviously stated to give you the false sense of necessity.

To finish, SlimXo Clitramine’s manufacturer comforts your feelings by informing you that you still can get your very own SlimXo Clitramine making you feel lucky, which eventually gets you signed to their autoship program. As said before, the website is created to elicit an emotional response rather than a logical one.

SlimXo Clitramine Cost and Money-Back Guarantee

This supplement is offered through a 14-day trial that costs $4.95 to cover for shipping and handling. They will then send you a 30-day supply consisting of 60 capsules.

Cancellation is needed if you don’t want to continue using the supplement. If you fail to do so, you will be billed $79.97 for the full price of the item. You will also be enrolled in their autoship program, which means that your monthly supply of SlimXo Clitramine will be automatically replenished every 30 days charging you of the said amount every month. This will only stop if you opt for cancellation. To do this, call customer support at (888) 297-0964.

Final Verdict

SlimXo Clitramine is actually new in the industry and hasn’t established a solid reputation in terms of its efficacy. The scientific proof that its active ingredient Litramine can promote weight loss is also lacking and weak. Plus, it’s only offered through a free trial and a subsequent autoship enrollment, which is, based on our experience assessing customer feedbacks, only creates trouble than expedience. It’s better to consult your doctor about other healthier alternatives to losing weight.
