Methyl Ripped Reviews
Methyl Ripped contains a few effective stimulants such as green tea and di-caffeine malate. It also uses some standard testosterone builders such as guggulsterones and phosphatidylserine to speed up the muscle recovery rate.
The ingredients are popular, but common. Most of them don’t have research to support the idea that they do anything for weight loss or muscle building efforts. Guggulsterones come in two forms, the yellow being useless and the brown being relatively effective. But the brown form is difficult to find, and most manufacturers don’t bother trying. Supporters of octopamine claim it mobilizes the release of fat from cells. But the fat release is immediately reabsorbed by other surrounding cells. Because of the high levels of stimulants in methyl ripped, side effects include cramps, headaches, jitters, and insomnia.
All of the ingredients used are put into different proprietary blends, which means they are not going to tell you exactly what is in the pills. One of the blends is a total of 5mg, and it supposedly consists of one ingredient. The fact that they made that a :complex unto itself tells me they are probably filling each blend with fillers to save money. The largest complex has 900mg. But it also has 14 ingredients trying to fit into that 900mg blend. The rest are 50mg and generally contain 4 ingredients each. In other words, there is no way for any one ingredient to be in a large enough quantity to be effective. As an example, forskolin was shown to produce favorable results in the alteration of body composition when taken in doses of 250mg twice a day over 12 weeks. The entire proprietary blend which includes forksolin is 50mg.
Overall Impression of Methyl Ripped:
Methyl Ripped contains a plethora of ingredients which are untested and unproven as well as small proprietary blends of ingredients proven to be useful only in specific doses. In my research, I have found that the most effective muscle builders tend to include at least 500mg of an ingredient called tribulus errestis or a significant amount of creatine, ingredients which Methyl Ripped does not use at all.
