The skinny on Biochem Fat Metabolizer is very skinny indeed. Their official website only says that the supplement will support liver function and fat metabolism. It gives absolutely no other details on how or why this supplement will work. After thoroughly studying the formula of the Fat Metabolizer it may have some digestion and some minor weight-loss benefits but it seems like many of the effective ingredients are a bit diluted.
Biochem Fat Metabolizer Ingredients
- Vitamin B-6
- Chromium Picolinate
- Artichoke Extract
- Barberry Extract
- Dandelion Extract
- Milk Thistle
It seems like all of the ingredients in this formula do back up Biochem Metabolizer’s very short mission statement, to help support liver function and fat metabolism. The Chromium Picolinate has been said to help the body process carbohydrates and fats more easily. Some studies show this to be true while other studies show no weight loss advantages. The L-Carnitine has been suggested to improve fat metabolism. The Choline is said to help emulsify fat. Choline has not been studied extensively but we do know the most easily digested foods and even breast milk contain choline. The Methionine and Inositol help detoxify the waste products of protein and fat breakdown. And the herbs such as dandelion, barberry, and artichoke have been said to support liver cells and enhance liver’s fat breakdown.
Biochem Fat Metabolizer Side Effects
All in all the Biochem Fat Metabolizer is a fairly safe and side effect free diet supplement. The main ingredient that could cause side effects is the L-Carnitine. L-Carnitine is actually illegal due to the adverse side effects that can occur. These include vomiting, nausea, headache, diarrhea, stuffy nose, and difficulty sleeping. However, there is only 340 mg of L-Carnitine in Biochem Fat Metabolizer making it a relatively safe dose. On the other hand, 340 mg is a pretty watered down dose. An effective dose would contain at least 500 mg.
Does Biochem Fat Metabolizer Work Well Enough to Buy?
Country Life, the parent company for Biochem Fat Metabolizer does not allow consumers to buy the Fat Metabolizer from their official website. This ultimately means there is absolutely no money-back guarantee. This always makes me a bit wary of products when there is not a money-back guarantee. I like having the security of knowing that I am not wasting my money if a supplement does not work for me. You can however purchase the product from a number of health food stores and third party online retailers for as little as $10.00 a bottle. Because of this inexpensive price, you wouldn’t be out too much giving this product a try. It seems to me that this is another diet supplement where you get what you pay for. I think that Biochem Fat Metabolizer does seem like one of the safer supplements and it may have some digestion advantages but I do not think it will have a major weight-loss effect.
