Does It Work for Weight Loss ?

MiracleBurn® is a weight loss agent which combines the appetite suppressant Hoodia Gordonii with the metabolic stimulant Advantra-Z (active ingredient Synephrine).

Here's a list of the main ingredients:

  • South African Hoodia (for appetite suppression)
  • Advantra-Z (a patented stimulant compound with fat-burning effects supposedly similar to Ephedrine, but supposedly less cardiovascular risk)
  • Glucomannan (a soluble fiber which, once in the stomach, absorbs water and expands like a sponge to create a sensation of fullness)
  • Yerba Mate (a central nervous system stimulant)
  • Chromium (a regulator agent which helps maintain stable blood glucose levels)
  • Iodine (to ensure optimal thyroid function)
  • White Willow Bark (a metabolic booster)
  • L-carnitine (a facilitator agent in the transport and breakdown of fatty acids)

The MiracleBurn website certifies that the Hoodia in their product is exclusively South African Hoodia, which is supposed to be the most potent and effective type. The active ingredient in Hoodia is the P-57 molecule, which acts on the hypothalamus (hunger center in the brain) to suppress appetite. This effect is supposed to last for hours, making you eat less during the day than you would otherwise. In other words, it allows you to stick with your diet by eliminating hunger. This action, in combination with the fat-burning effect of Advantra-Z is supposed (at least in theory) to deliver optimal weight loss results.

So Does It Work for Weight Loss?

To its credit, the manufacturer's website posts many satisfied customer testimonials, and some rather impressive before and after pictures attesting to the efficacy of the product. However, the independent data regarding MiracleBurn are contradictory at best. Some independent review sites give it high marks, and one site even ranks MiracleBurn as number one in its reader poll. Other review sites post some rather discouraging comments, including several testimonials from dissatisfied customers who indicate MiracleBurn didn't do anything for them.

In conclusion, although the principle behind this product appears to be sound, at this point its unclear how well it works for individual users.

Side Effects:

  • The metabolic stimulant Advantra-Z, although considered safer than Ephedra, may still cause side effects such as jitteriness, restlessness, or insomnia. These effects may be compounded by the central nervous stimulant Yerba Mate. More serious reactions include rapid heart rate and elevated blood pressure.
  • As mentioned above, MiracleBurn contains the appetite suppressant Hoodia Gordonii. Although Hoodia is generally considered a safe and gentle supplement, note must be made about a potential safety concern: Preliminary research done by Pfizer apparently suggests Hoodia may have some unwanted effects on the liver, due to substances other than the active ingredient P57. (Unfortunately, the offending substances proved difficult to isolate from the Hoodia formula.) Of course, these results are just preliminary, and the final word on Hoodia is yet to be said. In the interim, it's up to each individual to decide whether the benefits of this product are worth the potential risks.
