Weight loss is a frustrating investment: you put in all the hard work now, but have to wait weeks to see results. KETO-XT, however, says it can change that.
KETO-XT is a diet pill from BPI Sports advertised to start working the minute it enters your system. According to BPI, the KETO-XT formula is a “revolutionary breakthrough based on proven research and results.”
Because this is a common claim among diet pills, I decided to see if there was anything revolutionary at all about KETO-XT. I’ll go over the KETO-XT formula, customer reviews, usage instructions, and purchasing options to see if it really is “the strongest stimulant-based thermogenic on the planet.”
What’s in KETO-XT?
KETO-XT includes nearly 20 ingredients in a 290 mg proprietary blend. Since BPI chooses to advertise just a few, those are the ones I’ll go over.
Raspberry ketone is a chemical from red raspberries used to induce weight loss. It made waves after it appeared on “The Dr. Oz Show” in February 2012, promoted as a “miracle” for weight loss. Although scientific evidence on raspberry ketone’s effectiveness is mixed, many believe it boosts metabolism and triggers fat burning.
White Kidney Bean
High in fiber and protein, white kidney beans make a great appetite suppressant. By curbing cravings and keeping you full, white kidney bean helps you achieve the caloric deficit you need to lose weight. Studies, however, have been mixed. One study found that white kidney bean increased weight loss by about 6 pounds. However, a second study showed no benefit to taking white kidney bean.
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)
CLA is another recent weight loss fad. Said to stimulate fat burning without affecting the central nervous system, CLA both decreases body fat and preserves muscle. Unfortunately, like raspberry ketone and white kidney bean, CLA has yielded mixed results when studied for effectiveness. At most, you can expect modest weight loss with CLA.
You probably know saffron better as a spice. Although it doesn’t have direct weight loss properties, it prevents heart disease by protecting arteries. Saffron is also linked to mood elevation, which should help you beat dieting blues.
A Chinese herb, cassia nomame is a modest fat blocker. This means it prevents fats from being absorbed into the body by flushing them as waste instead. In this way, cassia nomame prevents further weight gain and makes it easier to lose the weight you’re already carrying around.
KETO-XT also contains many amino acids and other herbal extracts to support their core formula.
Overall, the KETO-XT formula looks promising, but is far from a sure bet. Even if studies on the ingredients were 100% in agreement, I’m not sure there’s enough of each ingredient to provide the promised benefits. With only 290 mg for nearly 20 ingredients, that indicates small doses of everything.
Do Customers Like KETO-XT?
To see if the proprietary blend in KETO-XT is optimal, we have to turn to customer reviews.
It seems that customers actually like KETO-XT. It holds a 4.3/5-star rating on GNC.com, with 100% of reviewers reporting they would recommend the product to a friend. Judging by the reviews left on GNC, KETO-XT doesn’t go above and beyond the call of an average diet pill, but instead promotes modest weight loss.
Most customers seemed to like KETO-XT’s fast-acting nature and its effect on mood.
Here’s a look at what a few customers had to say about KETO-XT:
“I lost three pounds in three weeks using this product.”—jim.beauchamp
“I am on my first day of Keto XT and will be back soon for another review. Must note however that I am in a better mood and noticed an improvement in my energy. Hoping this works:)” –c_valerius84
“Taking this product is amazing due to the fact that you can tell when it starts to work, which is as soon as you take it.”—auto20159657
However, it’s worth pointing out that only 4 reviews have been left on GNC.com. It’s possible other customers would review KETO-XT less favorably. Until we get a wider sample, it’s hard to say this is the prevailing customer opinion.
What’s the Best Way to Use KETO-XT?
To use KETO-XT, you need to take 3 capsules daily. You can take these all at once, or divide them between meals.
If you try this dosage and feel it isn’t working, BPI says you can work up to 6 capsules a day. However, I would recommend starting slow so your body can get used to KETO-XT’s effects.
How Much Does KETO-XT Cost?
KETO-XT is rather expensive. On BPISports.net, you can find it for $64.99 per bottle. There are no discounts for buying in bulk. Because each bottle lasts about 30 days, expect to pay $65 a month for as long as you want to stay on KETO-XT, if you choose to buy from BPI.
Luckily, there are discounts available from other distributors. GNC.com sells KETO-XT for $38.99 a bottle, and you can find KETO-XT on Amazon.com for $26.32.
If you take advantage of these deals, KETO-XT isn’t overly expensive at all.
Should You Try KETO-XT?
While I wouldn’t argue that KETO-XT really is the “the strongest stimulant-based thermogenic on the planet,” it does have some weight loss potential.
However, don’t expect KETO-XT to deliver mind-blowing results. This seems more like a moderately effective diet pill good for helping you lose vanity pounds.
