MiracleBurn Fat Burner Review
Like a bad infestation, MiracleBurn™ is another of a zillion “miraculous” fat burners popping up online like so many weeds. And where some manufacturers at least try to appear credible, the folks at MiracleBurn™ certainly don’t bother. Take this for instance, from their home page…
“Miracleburn™ uses Advantra Z®, the only Patented Form of Bitter Orange that is proven to be AS EFFECTIVE as Ephedra in weight loss, without the dangerous side effects.”
Um… proven where exactly? No such proof exists.
Sure, there is a small amount of clinical data to demonstrate synephrine (the standardized extract of bitter orange) displays thermogenic activity and may be the best alternative to ephedra yet (click here for validation from PubMed).
But that’s a far cry from saying Advantra Z IS proven to outperform ephedra. And most experts proclaim it a “dud” for weight loss. This excerpt from PubMed (Am J Cardiol. 2004 Nov 15;94(10):1359-61.) says it best…
“An extensive search of MEDLINE, EMBASE, BIOSIS, and the Cochrane Collaboration Database identified only 1 eligible randomized placebo controlled trial, which followed 20 patients for 6 weeks, demonstrated no statistically significant benefit for weight loss, and provided limited information about the safety of the herb.”
A review of Miracle Burn’s™ ingredient page is almost as hilarious as a George Carlin video. The compilation of the product actually isn’t too bad, it’s the description of each component that’s laughable. Here’s what they say about Apple Cider Vinegar…
“Contains an acidity content that literally eats away at your body’s fat cells. It also contains properties that lower your cholesterol levels, which enable the fat to be burned quicker and more easily. This fat is transformed into energy.”
Totally outrageous. The US Food & Drug Administration has had its hands full trying to stop the manufacturers of apple cider vinegar from making outrageous claims (click here and scroll halfway though the page for just a few).
Apple cider vinegar does not burn fat, nor does it do much of anything (for a great article on the real benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar, click here!)
The newest version of MiracleBurn contains Hoodia, the most hyped and unsubstantiated weight loss product on the net. Although advertised a super-potent appetite suppressor, there’s little evidence Hoodia is good for anything.
On top of all this, these statements are completely at odds with human physiology. Fat is a stored energy source. The only way to lose fat, is to burn it off by expending more energy than you consume — i.e., by creating a caloric deficit.
Even if there was a magic substance that emptied your fat cells, it would do you no good. Because unless you happen to performing an activity that requires significantly elevated level of calories, that fat is going right back where it came from. The body does not “flush” fat from its system, it simply doesn’t work that way.
Unfortunately, the entire MiracleBurn™ Web site is rife with ridiculous and unsubstantiated claims. And even though the product compilation is about average, I have question the credibility of products advertised in this manner. Let me put it this way…
It would be a cold day in you-know-where before I plunked down my credit card at this site.
Sidebar: Useful ingredients include glucomannan, chromium, and yerba mate. Unfortunately, we are not told how much is present in the compilation — another bad sign!
MiracleBurn™ offers a 7-day free trial of their product. Don’t be fooled. It costs them very little to do this, and it’s a common marketing tactic for acquiring qualified leads.
Worst of all, they will add you to a recurring billing program if you do not cancel your “membership” within 14 days of the date upon which you placed the order. That means they will ship you a new bottle of MiracleBurn and charge your credit card accordingly — every single month.
So if you would like to try this product, read the stipulations on the web site very carefully before surrendering your credit card info.
I’d also strongly recommend you read visitor feedback before making a purchase. I have received dozens of complaints about this company’s unethical billing practices, its rude and unco-operative customer service representitives and so on. Don’t get burned… click here to read the visitor feedback!
