If you’re thinking of getting this product, you’re in either two camps: you’re looking to lose some weight to look great for the summer, or you already look great (shredded in the gym, bro!) and you want to lower your fat percentage. Supposely, Oxylite PRO helps accomplish both.
In a sense, Oxylite PRO is a “cheat” pill. Steroids is banned in sports. Except instead of adding muscles to your body, Oxylite burns fat off your waist line. Does the pill really work? Let’s investigate and uncover this supposedly “miracle pill” that got banned from some stores.
The dirty inside scoop on OxyElite
OxyElite PRO by USPlabs is clasffied as a “thermogenic” – which means you take this to burn fat. Supposedly it’s a “pharmaceutical-strength” drug … in other words, it’s strong shit.
Let’s look at the label – and what do we see? Yohimbe. What the heck is Yohimbe? It’s a chemical in the plant Pausinystalia yohimbe. Yohimbe is known to help curb appetite. Ancient African tribe men used to chew on the plant to help suppress their appetite during their long hunting excursion (they’re hunting lions and stuff)
Next up, we see 100 mgs of caffeine. How much is 100 mgs of caffeine? It’s about a cup of instant coffee. When you dripped your coffee, there’s about 115 to 175 mgs of caffeine. Do you get an upset stomach when you drink instant coffee? If so, you may want to avoid this product.
Warnings and side effects …
If you got high blood pressure, I admire you to avoid this product. Why? Because the doctor said so. Like any fat burner, it causes stress on the lungs and heart. Imagine your poor heart working overtime pumping blood, and the pill stresses the hell out of it. So if you have high blood pressure, avoid this.
However, for people who have normal blood pressure, you’re good to go. Obviously the pill doesn’t literally “burn” fat – but rather curn your appetite and gives you extra boost of energy to walk around or exercise.
Interesting enough, this pill does not contain caffeine (which is common among many fat burners). Many users haven’t felt any jitteries or upset stomach when they use this product.
Because of the caffeine, it’s recommended that you don’t the pill 6 hours before sleeping time (unless you enjoy watching late night infomercials)
Interestingly enough, there isn’t any celebrities endorsing this product. Perhaps the company’s marketing budget is low or something, because you won’t see Tiger Woods or Britney Spears endorsing this product (Imagine Britney Spears on TV: “Hey guys, I used OxyElite to shred my pounds. I’m skinny know. You guys love me? Tee hee!”
Reviews from around the Internet
I gathered some reviews around the Internet, including those from Amazon and GNC. Let’s see what people have to say:
Review #1 from “Flako209″:
“I lost 70 lbs a year and a half ago and now just want to get shredded. This Thermo really smashes on current and past popular Thermogenics. Ive been taking this product for 28 days and have lost over 10 lbs my abs our finaly coming in. My appetite is crushed and I have amazing energy. I have been taking Anabolic Pump as well and it really has helped me break my routine and take my workouts to the next level. – Flako209″
His result isn’t typical. He got the motivation to lose it all by exercising and eating right. If anything, the pill is just the “cherry” on top to provide him the extra motivation to lose the 70 lbs. I give him nothing but props because it’s hard as heck to lose 70 lbs. He had the discipline and patience to lose that weight. Good for him.
I have used this product (as instructed, 8 weeks on 4 weeks off) for almost a year now. With this product I have been able to lose 50 pounds. I used to HATE working out, but since I have seen such great results, I have integrated walking a couple times a week (I don’t always get to, I’m very busy ). I have recommended this product to my family and friends, and all of them have lost weight. The key to this pill is consistency. If you only take it a few times a week, you WILL NOT see results. The pill gives me a little energy, however, it is not where I feel like my heart is going to pound out of my chest. I can still even drink coffee with it. The pill helps you control your appetite and increases your metabolism. I will never take anything else ever again!
She lost weight but her body is not toned – she’s more “skinny fat”. However, she lost the weight and that’s great for her. It seems that all she did was talk the pill, and walked around for a year. It took her a YEAR to see the difference. So don’t expect overnight result. However, if you got the patience to take it easy, you can get her result by walking 3 times per week and adapting good eating habits.
Review #3 from ladebugash, Austin TX:
This is my 5th day on OxyElite Pro. I am overweight and need to lose about 40 pounds. Since Sunday, I have lost a few pounds and my body fat % has gone down a little. Since taking these pills I have been eating healthier, drinking tons of water and exercising for about 30 minutes every other day. I am a little sensitive to caffeine, so the 1st day I took the pill in the morning I became very hot and almost felt like I was having a panic attack.
This went away slowly about an hour and a half later. I can only take 1 pill early morning (not the recommended 2) and 1 in the afternoon around my lunch time (1pm), because 3 would be too much for me. The morning one has been ok, but after I take the 2nd one during lunch, my heart rate increases and I cannot concentrate on anything at work. I actually had to leave work early today because this pill made me feel so much anxiety and I couldn’t fully calm down.
It seems like the person is experiencing side effects because of the caffeine. Like I mentioned before, if you have high blood pressure, you don’t want to consume this pill because of it puts stress on the heart and lungs. Avoid it and seek alternative methods. People with high blood pressure is the same reason why the FDA banned “jack3d” which is a pre-workout supplement. People with high blood pressure were dropping on the floor, giving the supplement a bad rep.
The benefits and other good stuff …
The good news is, the supplement runs at $34 dollars (it’s more expensive in other stores, but I’ll hook you up with this price). The bottle contains 90 pills. You only need to take 2 pills per day, every day. So the bottle should last you a month and a half. Not too expensive, as far as supplements go (I spend more than $35 on my Starbucks habit)
If you were to buy this product, I don’t recommend buying it at the mall – because you’re going to be over paying. Malls are notorious for marking up their products (which is understandable because they have employees and rent to pay)
However, as consumers it’s wiser to buy online. You’ll save a few dollars and the item will be delivered to your house. (Especially if you’re lazy like me. You want me to drive to the mall and buy full retail price? Hell no)
Final verdict – do I recommend this product?
The general census: Yes, it will help you lose weight and “motivate” you to work out.
Unlike many fat burners, this product uses a low amount of caffeine to avoid the “I got an upset stomach and possibly diarrhea” syndrome. The only read drawback to this product is the stress it cause on your lungs and heart. So if you had previous heart or lung problems, or high blood pressure, than avoid this product and other fat burners.
I’ve been buying at this store for the past 2 years.
The shipping is fast and you save a couple dollars. They even have a toll free number (1-888-324-2758). I call them once to ask if they got a particular product in stock. Much to my surprise, the call wasn’t outsourced to some Indian call center, because a gentlemen with an American accent answered the phone (yeah, it’s an American company) The company ships the stuff via FedEx or UPS.
If anything, the secret to losing weight is being consistent. Taking the pills will give you the “extra” motivation to eat less and exercise more.
Hope you enjoy my rant on OxyElite. As always, I wish you nothing but the best of luck on your weight loss and fitness goals. Nothing feels better than looking naked in the mirrior. I check out myself naked in the mirror every morning. Feels good man.
Hope you enjoy this “informative and highly entertaining” journalism. Lose weight, look good and enjoy your life. I’ll see you on the other side.
