Omega Sports BURN 24 Review
According to Omega Sports, maker of new insulin-inhibitor BURN 24, insulin increases fat by pushing nutrients out of the blood stream and into adipose cells.
Omega Sports promises BURN 24 lowers insulin activity and persuades the body to burn fat cells for energy, resulting in amazing weight loss.
But does Omega Sports BURN 24 have the ingredients to achieve this result?
The BURN 24 Formula
Burn 24’s formula consists of 7 ingredients intended to inhibit insulin, lower blood sugar, and promote fat burn:
Green Coffee Bean Extract (250 mg)
A 2012 clinical study shows green coffee bean significantly improves weight loss. These fat burning results are often attributed to its high cholorgenic acid content.
Chlorogenic acid inhibits glucose absorption and utilization from ingested food, prompting the body to use fat cells for energy. According to one researcher, chlorogenic acid may have “some effect on keeping down glucose absorption.” This statement mirrors the results of a 2007 study.
Green coffee bean also contains small caffeine amounts (2 mg). Caffeine stimulates metabolism and improves weight loss. Hhowever it’s doubtful this minute amount will have much effect.
Momordica Charantia Extract (200 mg)
Often known as bitter melon, this ingredient reduces lipid accumulation in cells. This effect is likely due to adiponectin, a protein shown to slow glucose absorption by inhibiting insulin activity. While these results are promising, further human trials need to be conducted.
Berberine Hydrochloride (200 mg)
Berberine lowers glucose levels. However, the ingredient has no effect on insulin secretion, the main instigator of glucose absorption and use. Consequently, berberine’s fat-burning effectiveness is questionable.
Bergenin (150 mg)
Gymnema Sylvestre (150 mg)
Gymnema Sylvestre facilitates glycemic control by stimulating insulin release from pancreatic beta cells. Its inclusion here is confusing because many BURN 24 ingredients are intended to limit insulin function.
Cissus Quadrangularis (100 mg)
In a 2007 clinical study, researchers found cissus supplementation lowered blood glucose levels in obese women. However, the study failed to show any connection between cissus quadrangularis and insulin.
Piper Nigrum (6 mg)
This black pepper-based ingredient improves bioavailability, enhancing the absorption and utilization of BURN 24’s other ingredients.
Findings in recent studies suggest black pepper also inhibits the formation of fat cells.
BURN 24’s formula is confusing at best. While it’s nice to see individual dosage information for each ingredient, it’s difficult to tell just how effective BURN 24 is at inhibiting insulin. Many ingredients appear to lower blood sugar levels, but BURN 24 also contains gymnema sylvestre that stimulates insulin release.
Is BURN 24 Safe?
Many ingredients interact with medications for diabetes, lowering blood sugar levels to dangerous levels. Consequently, people using diabetes drugs should avoid using BURN 24.
Also, cissus quadrangularis causes headaches, dry mouth, and diarrhea.
Taking BURN 24
Take 2 capsules approximately 20 -30 minutes before meals, 3 times a day. Do not take more than 6 capsules in a 24-hour period.
Also, do not take BURN 24 without food, because it lowers blood sugar.
Buying BURN 24
Burn 24 can be purchased online from several health supplement vendors.
• AllStateHealth.com: $39.99 for one bottle (180 capsules)
• BestPriceNutrition.com: $39.99 for one bottle
• NutraPlanet.com: $44.99 for one 180-capsule (includes a bottle of Vanillean)
Omega Sports offers a 100% money-back guarantee on BURN 24 regardless of where you buy it.
While BURN 24 has some ingredients proven to inhibit insulin activity and promote fat burn, the effectiveness of the entire formula is questionable.
Since the product is new, I suggest waiting for some user reviews before deciding whether you want to try it.
