DRY XT

DRY XT ReviewDRY XT is a dietary supplement from Jacked Factory. It is designed as a water weight loss agent that is stimulant-free. According to the official product page, this diet pill was crated so that men and women can sculpt their physique and enhance muscle definition without the use of any harsh stimulants.

What is the Purpose of DRY XT?

Although this is a weight management aid, its focus is not to reduce fat, it is to reduce water weight. Its primary benefits include:

  • Water weight loss
  • Bloating reduction
  • Reducing unwanted water retention
  • Help the body flush out toxins
  • Muscle definition
  • Research-backed ingredients
  • Made in the USA
  • No fillers or dyes

Ingredients Researched by Science

The manufacturer is proud to state that the DRY XT ingredients are clinically researched. The ingredients in the formula are as follows:

  • Horsetail herb,
  • Dandelion root extract,
  • Hawthorn berry powder,
  • Green tea extract,
  • Yerba mate leaf powder,
  • Vitamin B6

One look at this ingredients list and it is clear that this water pill contains plenty of diuretics. These are ingredients that cause you to urinate more frequently. In fact, every one of these ingredients has the ability to function as a diuretic.

Horsetail, dandelion root, and hawthorn berry are known for their diuretic properties while green tea and yerba mate contain caffeine, which can act as a diuretic in some people.

All that being said, While DRY XT has never been officially studied, due to the ingredients it contains, there is a very good chance that it will function as a diuretic, which will lead to frequent urination, expelling excess water from the body. 

What to Keep in Mind When Taking Water Pills

When this DRY XT review was created, the suggested use was to first assess your tolerance by taking 1 capsule 1 time per day with a glass of water after a light meal. Once a user is ready to take the regular dosage for maximum results, they are instructed to take 2 capsules 1-2 times daily with a glass of water after a light meal.

That being said, as this is a diuretic, it is very important that you make sure you drink plenty of water to stay well hydrated throughout the day. Expelling an excess amount of water from your body can lead to dehydration if you are not careful to make sure you are returning the appropriate amount of water and electrolytes to your body that you are losing through excessive urine output.

Moreover, remember that no matter how much you might slim down from taking this diet pill, all that you are losing is water, not fat. Water weight will return. This dietary supplement is not a permanent or long-term weight loss solution.

It would be in your best interest to first consult with your healthcare provider before taking DRY XT, regardless of your current state of health.

Hum Skinny Bird

Hum Skinny Bird ReviewHUM Skinny Bird is a dietary supplement for weight management. According to the official HUM Nutrition website, this nonprescription diet pill is an “all natural weight loss program.” It supposedly reduces stress eating, boosts metabolism and curbs appetite.

When this HUM Skinny Bird review was created, the ingredients within the vegan capsules included: Chromium, Caralluma Fimbriata Extract, 5-HTP, Green Tea Extract.

The suggested dose is to take 1 capsule up to 3 times per day, ideally 30 minutes before eating.

According to HUM Nutrition, each of the ingredients offers a benefit. For instance, Caralluma Fimbriata helps to curb appetite. Chromium helps to support healthy blood sugar levels, Green Tea boosts metabolism, and 5-HTP helps to reduce stress eating.

More specifically, the manufacturer seems to have a lot to say about 5-HTP, claiming that when used as a supplement, it enhances the production of serotonin. This naturally occurring chemical in the hypothalamus is believed to be involved in the regulation of food intake, encouraging within-meal satiation, and improving post-meal satiety.

Some science suggests that taking 300 mg of 5-HTP orally, 3 times per day, 30 minutes prior to meals for 2 to 12 weeks, can improve early satiety and reduces daily caloric intake in obese women.

HUM Nutrition lists other science in regard to the rest of its ingredients as well, which is commendable. However, when looking at the research that the company has cited, it reveals that the studies associated with it are very small and mainly preliminary. In other words, more scientific research is required before it can be truly determined how each of these ingredients could be beneficial for weight loss (if at all) and what effect (good or bad) they have on the body.

Moreover, while HUM Nutrition mentioned a 5-HTP study that found results when 300 mg of 5-HTP was used 3 times a day (a total of 900 mg), it should be noted that there is only 100 mg of 5-HTP per serving in HUM Skinny Bird. This means the maximum daily 3 capsule dose will provide only a total of 300 mg, which is far less than what was used in the study that reported benefits.

Essentially, while there are some good points about this product, such as it having minimal caffeine (green tea) and only a few scientifically studied ingredients within its formula, there is no solid proof that the ingredients are effective weight management aids on their own or combined in the HUM Skinny Bird formula.

Green Stinger

Green Stinger reviewGreen Stinger is an over the counter weight loss pill that has become popular among dieters who have tried many other products and who have reached the end of their tether in terms of not finding something that is truly effective and powerful enough to meet their expectations. That said, just because a product is selected by people who have become frustrated with many other available products, it doesn’t necessarily mean that this one will work. It is important to look more closely into weight loss supplements before taking them as they aren’t always what they seem.

In this case, Green Stinger is marketed as being a powerful thermogenic. In this way, it is supposed to increase the body temperature in order to cause the body to burn through more calories and stored fat in order to fuel this additional heat. How does it do this? With ephedra.

Therein lies the problem. Ephedra may be marketed as a powerful thermogenic and it may very well work to boost the body temperature to increase fat burning and calorie burning, but there is a very dark side to this ingredient, as well. This substance has been associated with a number of very powerful and dangerous side effects, including an increased risk of stroke, heart attack and other cardiac issues. Moreover, it has also been directly connected with several deaths.

This substance has been banned from weight loss pills by the FDA due to the number of reported adverse reactions and fatalities connected with its use. For this reason, Green Stinger is, in fact, illegal for production, sale and purchase in the United States. This is the case in a number of other countries, as well. Therefore, even if you weren’t afraid of the potentially risky side effects, you are also putting yourself at risk of getting into some hot water due to the fact that this is not a legal product.

If that wasn’t enough, consider the rest of the formula. It contains: ephedra extract, yohimatrix (two versions of yohimbine HCl), citrus aurantium, synephrine extract, acacia rigidula, phenylethylamine HCl, Theobroma CoCoa, green tea extract, naringen, pure white willow bark extract, evodiamine and TriENRG (kola nut, guarana extract and yerba mate).

This means that this product actually contains a long list of additional stimulants beyond ephedra, including a combination of stimulants against which the FDA has released a consumer warning (sinephrine and caffeine, which are both contained in this product from multiple sources).

Lipoblast Extreme

Lipoblast Extreme reviewLipoblast Extreme is a nonprescription diet pill that is manufactured in the United States by a company that goes by the name of MetaHerbal Labs, LLC. The official website for that company has a page dedicated to this specific product. This provides some information about the pills and allows dieters to purchase it if they wish to do so.

The availability of this information is handy for customers who know the importance of researching a product before actually making a purchase. Lipoblast Extreme is sold on a number of different websites and online marketplaces, but it is typically considered to be best to begin with the official information provided by the manufacturer when doing research into any product. From there, additional reviews, studies and comments can always be sought, but this is a good jumping off point.

In terms of the customer reviews that this product has received over the years, it is interesting that while there are well over one hundred five star reviews, at the same time, there are about an equal number of one star reviews. This suggests that while there are many customers who couldn’t be happier with the results that they have experienced, there is an equal number of customers who are completely dissatisfied with what they have received.

Therefore, to truly understand if this is right for your needs and expectations, it’s a good idea to dig a little bit deeper. At the time that this review was written, the official website listed a massive number of ingredients that make up this formula. They were: Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Pantothenic Acid, Magnesium, Tyrosine Complex (proprietary blend of l-tyrosine and acetyl-tyrosine), Green Tea Extract (standardized for epigallocatedchin gallate, caffeine and polyphenols, Cocoa Extract (standardized for PEA (phenlethylamine), tyramime and theobromine), Yerba Mate (standardized for caffeine and methyanthines, dl-methionine, Ginger Root (standardized for gingerols), Proprietary blend fo3, 3′, 4′, 5-7 pentahydroxyflavone and 3, 3′, 4′, 7-tetrahydroxy-flavone), Bitter Orange (standardized for synephrine, n-methyltryramine, hordenine, octopamine and tyramine, DMAE 2 dimethylaminoethanol), Grape Seed Extract (standardized for catechines).

With that number of ingredients, it is difficult to say whether or not there is enough of anything to be effective. It is difficult to believe that there could be adequate amounts of all of those substances in a pill to be able to enjoy benefits from them all, assuming that there are indeed weight loss benefits associated with all of those ingredients. While there are certain substances in Lipoblast Extreme that have been studied, there are many others that have not. Even more concerning is the number of strong stimulants in this product, which could lead many dieters to experience unwanted side effects such as anxiety, jitters, headache, digestive upset, and more.
