Ambliq Natura Review
“Drop 15-25 lbs. in 40 days,” claims Ambliq Natura’s website. While it sounds exciting, that’s less than 1 lb. a day, which is reasonable weight loss. But can Ambliq Natura do the job?
AmbliqNatura.com features a testimonial claiming 1 user lost 42 lbs. in 12 weeks. But the website admits these results are not typical. So, I researched the formula and reviews to see what results users can expect.
What Are the Ingredients?
The ingredient list is shown on the official website’s FAQ page. The company combines the following ingredients into a proprietary blend:
Aloe. Many people claim aloe promotes weight loss by burning fat or increasing insulin sensitivity. However, researchers have not proven these claims are true during human studies. Aloe is a natural laxative, so it may cause temporary weight loss.
Goji Berries. These berries are low in calories and high in antioxidants. They are touted as a “superfood” and weight loss ingredient by supplement companies. But again, there is no research to support this claim. It is true, however, that goji berries are beneficial. Their antioxidants defend the body from toxins like free radicals.
Hawthorne. Also a berry, this low-calorie ingredient reduces water retention, which may cause temporary weight loss. Hawthorne contains many healthy nutrients, but it’s not supported by weight loss research.
Flaxseed. Flaxseed is rich in vitamins, fatty acids, and fiber. Fatty acids are healthy fats the body converts into energy. They don’t promote fat loss, but may prevent fat gain. The fiber in flaxseed improves digestive function. Consuming large quantities increases satiety and reduces appetite. In one study, flaxseed was shown to improve insulin resistance in obese people.
Decaffeinated Green Tea. Contrary to popular belief, caffeine isn’t the reason green tea burns fat — it’s epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). This polyphenol not only stimulates fat burn, it lowers blood sugar and cholesterol. By lowering blood sugar, green tea suppresses sugar cravings. Research shows green tea is an effective weight loss ingredient.
Lotus Leaf Flavonoids. EGCG, quercetin, and isoflavones are flavonoids that may reduce body weight. However, the particular flavonoids in lotus leaf have not been tested for their weight loss abilities. Until research becomes available, the claims are unsupported.
Dosages in the Proprietary Blend
Because the manufacturer uses a proprietary blend in Ambliq Natura, the individual dosages are obscured.
The official website doesn’t show the blend’s total dosage either. So, I can’t even begin to determine whether Ambliq Natura contains safe, effective quantities.
Some companies use blends because they are convenient and protect “secret recipes.” Shady companies use blends to hide insufficient amounts and large filler dosages. Either way, consumers are at a disadvantage because they can’t see what’s in the product.
Side Effects and Ingredient Safety
Ambliq Natura only uses natural ingredients, but this doesn’t mean the ingredients are 100% safe. Natural ingredients may cause side effects, too; especially for people with allergies or sensitivities.
Since most Ambliq Natura ingredients weren’t clinically tested, there’s no proof they are safe or unsafe. On the plus side, this diet pill doesn’t contain stimulants, which are usually the #1 cause of side effects.
Take 1 capsule 30 minutes before breakfast and 30 minutes before dinner. After the first week, both capsules may be taken before breakfast. Since Ambliq Natura holds 60 capsules, the bottle lasts 30 days.
The manufacturer suggests drinking eight 8 oz. glasses of water each day. Water “combines with the natural cellulose fiber” to increase fullness and suppress appetite. Cellulose fiber must be an inactive ingredient because it wasn’t listed with the active ingredients. I’m not sure if Ambliq Natura contains enough cellulose fiber to suppress appetite.
Eat a healthy diet and exercise while using Ambliq Natura.
According to the website, Ambliq Natura does not interact with thyroid or high blood pressure medication. If you have diabetes, but don’t take insulin, you may be able to take Ambliq Natura. Talk to your doctor first.
Children, pregnant women, and people with heart disease should not use Ambliq Natura.
How Much Does Ambliq Natura Cost?
AmbliqNatura.com sells its product for $69.99. If you buy the 90-day program, you receive 3 bottles for $179.97 ($59.99 each). Orders ship within 3-5 days and shipping is free. I’m not sure where orders are shipped from or how long delivery takes.
Limited quantities are also sold on Amazon.com. The price is $69.99 and shipping costs $4.99.
The official website has a 14-Day Satisfaction Guarantee. Day 1 starts when the product is delivered. If you want a refund, email customer service and ask for a return authorization number (Customerservice@AmbliqNatura.com).
Send back the unused portion within 14 days. The bottle must have at least 50% of the original content. The company issues a full refund (less s/h) within 3-4 business days.
One of Ambliq Natura’s 6 ingredients was proven to suppress appetite and burn fat. The other 5 might work but there’s no proof.
Because the company hides dosages, I can’t determine if safe, effective amounts were used. If the recommended green tea dosage is not included, this ingredient won’t be effective; regardless of what researchers say.
Ambliq Natura contains natural ingredients, but evidence regarding their safety is lacking.
I’m not convinced Ambliq Natura is a safe, effective diet pill. So, I don’t recommend paying $70 for it. Instead, buy a diet pill with several proven ingredients and the recommended dosages. Top-rated diet pills contain more powerful formulas and cost less than Ambliq Natura.
