Pride Nutrition C-Gone
The ‘C’ in C-Gone is short for ‘carbohydrates.’ Now most people view carbs as the enemy, but they’re actually essential in fueling the body… if eaten healthfully. By this I mean, the consumption of whole grains, not sugar donuts! C-Gone promises to take the carbohydrates you consume, and use them-along with any stored fat you have-as energy. Visualize C-Gone actually shuttling the carbohydrates into the muscle cells, energizing and fueling your muscles so you can perform with increased strength and vigor during your workout! Users have noted their muscles feeling ‘pumped’, before they even lifted a weight!
If this isn’t good enough, C-Gone is also designed to increase heart health, promote glowing skin, and support mental concentration and fast recovery time.
Chromium Picolinate 240 mcg: an essential mineral that promotes a strong and healthy metabolism by helping the body absorb glucose more efficiently so it can be used for energy rather than be stored as fat. This ingredient has been clinically tested and proven to aid in weight loss, and was even found in trial to lessen the craving for carbohydrates! An excellent ingredient!
Vanadyl Sulfate 15 mg: an ultra-trace mineral which works like insulin to increase the amount of glucose (sugar) and amino acids driven into the muscle. It improves energy levels and maintains blood sugar levels in the normal range. Because of its efficient use of insulin, it increases protein synthesis, and the use of the body’s fat storage for fuel.
Gymnema Sylvestre 100 mg: an herb that reduces sugar cravings, and blocks the absorption of sugar.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine 500 mg: also known as the ‘energy nutrient’, this amino acid helps the body burn fat for energy. In the ‘acetyl’ form, it can also be utilized by the brain to aid with mental concentration.
L-Glutamine 500 mg-an amino acid that improves recovery time from your workouts and like Acetyl-L-Carnitine, aids with mental concentration.
Alpha Lipoic Acid 200 mg: this fatty acid is an antioxidant that not only kills harmful free radicals, but also helps the body produce insulin. When used in conjunction with Acetyl-L-Carnitine, it’s very good for heart health and to improve the appearance of skin.
C-Gone Side Effects
No known side effects have been reported with C-Gone. If you’re on a low-carb diet, you’ll want to lower your consumption to one pill twice daily with carbohydrate foods. If you’re training, take one-two pills before breakfast, and before (and/or) after your workout with carbohydrates and proteins. Make sure you take C-Gone with a full glass of water.
Does C-Gone Work Well Enough to Buy?
Consumer reviews are positive and I certainly believe the ingredients have good enough dosages that C-Gone will perform well. The only thing that gives me pause is the lack of clinically tested and PROVEN ingredients. Chromium Picolinate is the only ingredient scientifically proven to do what it claims to. Still, at $24.95 for 120 capsules from some websites, it’s probably worth the risk. (If you purchase directly through pride nutrition, it’s more expensive at $69.99. However, Pride Nutrition offers a 30-day money back guarantee.)
