Nueslim, Tocasil FG, Neweight, Diet Blaster, Meta Gen & MetaboQuick, Zilacetin, and Phenazen: eBay Fat Burners Reviewed
Nueslim, Tocasil FG, Neweight, Diet Blaster, Meta Gen & MetaboQuick, Zilacetin, and Phenazen.
All fat burners. All sold on eBay.
I often get questions from site visitors interested in the effectiveness of fat burners sold primarily on eBay. There are many such fat burners (I have reviewed many — Lipovox, Leptovox, Myoffiene, Phenterfein, Ephedrasil, etc.) but the ones I will discuss in this article are the aforementioned — Nueslim, Tocasil FG, Neweight, Diet Blaster, Meta Gen & MetaboQuick, Zilacetin, and Phenazen.
At first glance, all these products seem like real bargains. The price is right, a guarantee is offered, and a ton of testimonials from happy customers is presented for your review. However, I am always extremely wary about products that are not sold through conventional retail channels.
Usually, this is not so that the retailer can “skip the middleman” and offer huge savings to the you the consumer — although that’s what they tell you. Nope. Usually, it’s so they can sell you an inferior quality product and then dodge accountability to you for doing so.
Buy an inferior product at Wal-Mart or any retail store, and all you need to do is return to the store with the product and your receipt for a refund. Order online, and its much more dififcult to get any retailer to stand behind their guarantee because frankly — you don’t know who they are, where they are, or how to get hold of them.
Turns out I was right to be wary, as there are a few major problems with some of the fat burners I found on eBay…
First of all, for the listings I reviewed, the products above showed exactly the same ingredients profile. In other words, the ingredients in Zilacetin are exactly the same (and in exactly the same amount) as the ones in Phenazen, in Diet Blaster, and so on.
This is very unsettling.
After all there is only one reason to rename and repackage the identical package over and over… and it’s not for the benefit of the consumer. It’s to keep you spending your money on what you think is a new and different product, when in fact you are buying the exact same formula over and over.
This is a new and disturbing trend among the “less-than-scrupulous” supplement manufacturers. When the sales of a particular fat burner product begin to drop dramatically, the retailer simply renames it, changes the bottle and label appearance, and puts it back on the market, representing it as a “brand new product.”
The product formulas are nothing to write home about either.
While these products are often advertised as a fantastic bargain (“why pay $50 in stores when you can buy it here for $10?”) the formulations can hardly be considered potent — only a tiny smattering of the useful ingredients are included.
While the ingredients listing I reviewed showed these products to contain green tea, pyruvate and tyrosine, the dosages were so low as to be pathetic, and certainly not particularly useful for fat burning.
The only ingredient I found in the appropriate dosage was chromium picolinate (at 200 mcg/serving). Unfortunately, chromium is pretty cheap, so even its presence in these formulas is not enough to justify a purchase.
Not to take away anything from the eBay merchants selling this stuff, but be careful when you review a retailer’s feedback. Generally, feedback is indicative of customer service, shipping speed, and so on — and not how effective a product is. The truth of the matter is simple… most customers will have to leave feedback long before they’ll have used the product long enough to have an opinion one way or another.
No bargain here… you’re getting exactly what you pay for — a extremely weak and watered-down fat burner that contains a few moderately useful ingredients in dosages too low to be of any use.
