What You Should Know
The Metabolife Break Through supplement is considered a stage 2 supplement on the Metabolife program. The product is supposed to aid in breaking the plateau that is so difficult to understand during continuing weight loss. The official website offers the supplement for $29.99 a bottle. The links on the official page to the Suggested Use and Ingredients are not active and link to nothing.
List of Ingredients
Chromium, Potassium, Green Tea Extract, L-tyrosine, Cayenne Fruit, and Caffeine.
The first question that comes to mind when looking at the ingredient list is why the potassium? We have noted in previous reviews that Metabolife has been known to cause muscle weakness that has lead to a misdiagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. This addition of potassium could have something to do with that. There is no need for potassium in a weight loss supplement as the dieter will more than likely consume enough potassium in their diet without supplementation.
The green tea leaf is a great ingredient. Without the website links working, we have no idea how much is in the product, but we like the ingredient none the less. Green tea is a proven fat burner that is safe for all dieters. Cayenne Fruit is an interesting ingredient as it has shown laxative effects. Maybe this is the way the Metabolife Break Through helps to bust the plateau. The caffeine is a common ingredient in weight loss products and has also been proven to increase metabolism. Luckily there are not multiple stimulants in the product.
There are 6 products in the Metabolife line. It is not explained whether the Metabolife Break Through is formulated to be taken with the other 5 products or as a standalone product. If it is formulated to be taken in conjunction with the other supplements, the effect could be far different as the ingredients from the other stages could enhance or hinder the effects of this supplement.
- The Metabolife Break Through is affordable.
- The green tea is a proven fat burner.
- There are no super strong stimulants in the product.
- The potassium added serves no purpose.
- Potassium can cause severe side effects if too much is consumed.
- Broken links on the website appear unprofessional.
We would like to support the Metabolife Break Through as a product that could help to bust that plateau, but the potassium alarms us. With claims of muscle weakness attributed to the Metabolife name as it is, you would think the manufacturer would eliminate this ingredient. With the potassium in the ingredient list, the product is not safe for everyone. We support weight loss products with a proven track record to help the dieter not land them in the hospital with shortness of breath and muscle problems.
