TwinLab Metabolift Weight Loss Supplement, Ephedra Free Formula is a dietary supplement that works on fat burning with a mix of active ingredients.
The mix is patented and designed to help you lose weigh quickly and to increase your energy level. It seems that this promise comes with strings attached, since the manufacturer’s website comes with half page of warnings about dangers to your health if the dose is exceeded.
Other warnings are about the product not being suitable for people under the age of 18, to keep the product from children and never, ever to take it if pregnant. With such warnings, it better be worth it.
How does TwinLab Metabolift Ephedra Free Weight Loss Supplement Work?
The Metabolift is a blend of active ingredients from a number of herbs.
List of ingredients
St. John’s Wort Extract (Standardized For 0.9 Mg Hypericin), L-phenyLaLanine, Green Tea Leaf Extract (Standardized For Epigallocatechin Gallate), Quercetin Dihydrate, Citrus Bioflavonoid Complex (Containing Naringin), Ginger Root, Cayenne Fruit. Other Ingredients: Gelatin, Purified Water, Mct, Silica, Magnesium Stearate.
Each of these herbs is known for its own particular effect, but in combination, the product boosts metabolism and burns fat rapidly.
What Others Are Saying – Does TwinLab Metabolift Ephedra Free Work?
The reviews I read are positive. Customers reported weight loss mostly due to the lack of appetite, and increased energy level, but the general advice is to start with half the recommended dose. A user stated:
“I’m hardly hungry by the time my next meal comes around. Somehow, when on metabolift, I forget about food for the day.”
How Much Weight Will I Lose?
Jason Dougherty used the Twinlab Metabolift capsules and reported losing 45 pounds, probably making his girlfriend happy, but making his doctor pull his hairs. Others reported slow weight loss, but decreased appetite and more energy than normally.
The manufacturer recommends that the users should consult a physician before using this product. It is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women. If you feel dizziness, sleeplessness, tremors, nervousness, headache, heart palpitations or tingling sensations after using Metabolift, stop using it and see your doctor.
The Metabolift contains St. John’s Worth, which makes people with fair skin sensitive to strong sunlight. Guarana seeds contain caffeine, so avoid taking more coffee than necessary; otherwise, you will end up with jitters or running around like Energizer Bunny.

Problems and Complaints
There are no reported problems, only the potential ones if the dose is exceeded (heart attack and stroke are a possibility)
This completely natural product is perfect proof that herbs and plants are not as innocent as we think. After all, people used them for centuries and they are a base for most pills anyway.
The use of herbal supplements has to be monitored by your doctor just like any other medication.
Considering the warning from the manufacturer of the serious side effects for some people, especially if the dose is exceeded, it would be a good idea to see your doctor and have a checkup before embarking on such a risky endeavor. Being slim and beautiful is fine, but not if you are dead.
