If you’re looking for a way to stimulate your body’s natural ability to burn fat faster, this is what the dietary supplement Simply 8 promises to help you do. The “healthy and natural” weight loss formula, developed by Biosearch Life, has been designed for both men and women, and has been created with clinically tested ingredients. Simply 8 works to curb hunger, and energize you while you burn fat and get rid of extra belly pounds.
The ingredients in the Simply 8 formula (when this review was written) included: Yerba Mate, Bladderwrack, Dandelion and Guarana. The recommended dosage is to take 1 capsule daily, 30 minutes either before breakfast or lunch.
Each of the ingredients selected for the Simply 8 formula have been scientifically researched. For instance:
Yerba Mate is believed to function like an appetite suppressant and is a caffeine-based stimulant. It can increase calorie burn, aid with appetite suppression and cause thermogenesis.
Guarana is also a caffeine-based stimulant that is believed to have a synergetic effect with yerba mate and is believed to function as an appetite suppressant.
Dandelion is high in dietary fiber and is believed to have detoxifying properties and functions as a diuretic and/or laxative.
Bladderwrack is a metabolic stimulant and is easy to digest and may help to provide support for an underactive thyroid.
Although this dietary supplement does contain ingredients that are well-known and frequently used in the OTC (over-the-counter) weight loss industry, this doesn’t mean that they are effective or safe, even though the official product site for Simply 8 claims that they are both of these things as well as “proven”. In fact, the site goes so far as to say the ingredients are “FDA-approved”, which is untrue. None of these ingredients have been FDA-Approved for weight loss or medicinal use, nor have they been proven.
As for its efficacy, there is a good chance that you might experience improved energy and mental focus, due to the ingredients that contain the stimulant caffeine. It could also help with fat burning if combined with cardio exercise. That being said, there is no proof or guarantee that taking these ingredients will lead to measureable fat loss.
What’s more, even though caffeine has benefits, it also has many unpleasant side effects, including sleeplessness, rapid heartbeat, headache anxiety, digestive upset, etc.
Additionally, Simply 8 contains dandelion which may result in frequent urination, due to its diuretic properties. As such, be sure to drink plenty of water and keep in mind that any water weight you might lose isn’t fat loss.
If you’re interested in taking Simply 8, run this by your doctor first to obtain a professional medical opinion about this dietary supplement.
