Clarification – 1 serving = 3 capsules, see FAQs section above for explanation
CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) – 1000 mg per serving
The substitute for caffeine, CLA is said to help you lose weight through interacting and stimulating your PPAR receptors. PPARα, PPARβ and PPARγ are three of the PPAR receptors. PPARα and PPARβ both directly affect the lipid metabolism and are responsible for the break down of fat stores. However, in order to achieve these desired results, a study stated a dosage of 3-6 g daily was used to get results. This is also within the safe recommended daily dosage. EVL Nutrition state that for every each serving (3 capsules, see FAQs above) there is 1000mg (1 g) of CLA. Unfortunately, that means that following their recommended dosage wouldn’t provide you with enough of a key ingredient within this supplement.
Green Coffee Bean Extract – 500 mg per serving
If you have read our Instant Knockout review, then you’ll firstly know that we’re a fan of this ingredient. You may also know that green coffee bean contains chlorogenic acid. The chlorogenic acid is responsible for breaking down glucose in your liver, this means that your body can’t use the glucose as energy. Forcing your body to break down fat stores to use as energy. It’s good stuff!
this ingredient mainly has benefits in energy and muscle repair, this means it will help you recover from your workouts. However, we can’t help but feel this is simply wasted space in this supplement. This is because users who are working out will probably also take other supplements like creatine and protein to help with their recover. Making this addition simply a waste of valuable space in a supplement that users already believe is slightly under dosed.
The appetite suppressing ingredient within this supplement. The verdict for this is a bit hit and miss, it does contain active ingredients within it that can be related to glucose metabolism. However, it is questionable whether this really hits the mark in terms of actual weight loss results. We’re not saying that it won’t aid weight loss but they could’ve definitely considered better appetite suppressors like Glucomannan.
Green Tea Extract
the EGCG antioxidant in green tea which causes a rise in norepinephrine, a hormone which triggers the release of glucose from energy stores. Allowing your body to use the glucose as energy rather than calories you’ve consumed.
Leanmode, is it an effective stimulant free fat burner?
We can’t help but feel a bit bitter sweet with this supplement, we wanted it to be up there with the best but for us it just doesn’t make the cut. Don’t get us wrong for a stimulant free or at least low stimulant fat burner, Leanmode is definitely on the right track. However, the low dosages on the active ingredients within this supplement is definitely a let down.
On that note we can say for sure that one key improvement that could be made to this supplement is increasing the dosage size of each ingredient. Additionally, ingredients with questionable effect like Garcinia Cambogia seem like un-needed wasted space that could be used to increase dosage size. They could also consider swapping Garcinia with a more effective appetite suppressant like Glucomannan.
