Ab Cuts Active Review
The name “Ab Cuts Active” grabs my attention. I picture an energy-boosting diet pill that trims belly fat and carves chiseled abs. But what does it really do?
Revolution makes Ab Cuts Active for “women who have extra stress in their life.” By reducing the stress hormone cortisol, this product should boost mood and cut belly fat. So, Ab Cuts Active isn’t quite what I expected, but is it still worth trying? Let’s find out…
Who Is Revolution?
Since I’m not familiar with Ab Cuts Active, my first step was researching the company. If a company has a good reputation, it increases my confidence in their products.
Revolution, also known as Corr-Jensen Labs, has been in business since 2005. The Better Business Bureau gives the company an A+ rating; mainly because there are no customer complaints. I could not find complaints on other sites either.
Safflower Oil (350 mg) – reduces body fat and increases lean muscle, but it does not decrease appetite or body weight.
Pomegranate Seed Oil (175 mg) – decreases triglyceride levels, which improves cardiovascular health.
DHA Oil (70 mg) – enhances brain function and reduces triglycerides.
MCT Oil (50 mg) – increases thermogenic response to promote fat burn. It also increases energy.
Phosphatidylserine Oil (50 mg) – lowers cortisol levels, and relieves stress and anxiety.
Echium Oil – reduces triglyceride levels and may increase collagen.
Sesame Seed Oil – provides antioxidant benefits.
Arachidonic Acid – may increase insulin-like growth factor 1 and promote protein synthesis.
One Ab Cuts Active softgel contains 777 mg total. I can see 5 dosages that make up this total. But the echium oil, sesame seed oil, Arachidonic acid, vitamin E, and vitamin B12 dosages are not disclosed. As a result, I don’t know if proven amounts for these 5 ingredients are used.
Although it has been tested, MCT Oil does not have a proven dosage. Here are the proven dosages for the 4 ingredients with disclosed amounts:
• Safflower Oil – 8 grams
• Pomegranate Seed Oil – 800 mg
• DHA Oil – 300 mg
• Phosphatidylserine Oil – 400 mg
It’s recommended you take 2-3 Ab Cuts Active capsules three times a day with meals.
Taking 6-9 capsules daily provides the proven phosphatidylserine dosage; a small safflower oil dosage; and huge pomegranate seed oil and DHA oil dosages. You may or may not get proven dosages of the other 6 ingredients. I can’t know for sure.
Does Eating Fat Burn Fat?
It’s true: eating healthy fats causes the body to burn fat faster. All but two Ab Cuts Active ingredients are fatty acids. So, will this diet pill help you lose body fat? I’m doubtful it will, for two reasons:
First, the dosages are too high, too low, or unknown.
Second, most of the fat your body burns will be the fat you consume; not body fat.
Is Ab Cuts Active Safe?
Ab Cuts Active has 2 vitamins and 8 fatty acids. These are healthy, safe ingredients. However, because huge dosages are included, side effects are more likely to occur. Ab Cuts Active does not contain caffeine, which eliminates stimulant-related side effects. But large fatty acid dosages are known to cause side effect such as:
• Stomach upset
• Digestive problems
These side effects may not be severe enough to outweigh potential benefits. If your body adapts to large fatty acid dosages, the side effects should stop occurring.
Why Is Ab Cuts Active Just for Women?
Men and women both have stress, cortisol and occasionally, too much belly fat. It seems to me both groups could benefit from Ab Cuts Active. So why is it just for women? I don’t know. These aren’t gender-specific ingredients. In fact, most Revolution products contain the same fatty acids and vitamins.
When you take 6 capsules daily, Ab Cuts Active lasts 20 days. Take 9 capsules daily and it lasts 13 days. The official website (RevolutionLifeStyle.com) sells Ab Cuts Active for $44.99.
One bottle is already expensive, but you’ll need more than one bottle for weight loss. Typically, fatty acid diet pills must be taken for at least 6-8 weeks for significant results.
These sites also sell Ab Cuts Active:
• eBay.com: $39.99
• AllStarHealth.com: $43.99
• Amazon.com: $44.98
The Return Policy
If you are not 100% satisfied, Revolution has a 30-day return policy. To be eligible, you must purchase Ab Cuts Active from Revolution. Next, fill out a Return Request form (available on the official website). Lastly, return the diet pill and the form to this address:
221 South Cherokee Street
Denver, CO 80223
It may take 4 weeks for your refund to process.
The 30-day policy starts when you buy Ab Cuts Active. It’s better than no policy, but I wish it lasted longer. Ab Cuts Active is not a fast-acting diet pill. You may need 3-4 weeks to see if it works or not. Thirty days to receive, try, and return it is not enough.
Ab Cuts Active contains many health-promoting ingredients. Some are proven to promote weight loss and improve cardiovascular health. Although Ab Cuts Active is advertised to reduce cortisol, only one ingredient provides this benefit. The included ingredients are safe, but Ab Cuts Active contains huge dosages. Consumers may experience side effects.
I’m not confident Ab Cuts Active is an effective diet pill. Since it may take 3-4 weeks for consumers to realize this, the 30-day return policy doesn’t really help.
I don’t recommend Ab Cuts Active. Other diet pills cost less, and work faster and better. Keep looking!
