Active Woman Define is one of the latest entries to the celebrity endorsed weight loss supplement market. This product was launched with the image and autograph of Melanie Sykes printed on every bottle. Although many people find that they are immediately swayed or put off by a celebrity endorsement, it is better to conduct a little bit of extra investigation into this product before deciding whether it is right for you or whether it should be avoided.
To start, it should be noted that Active Woman Define is quite inexpensive when compared to other products on the market shelves. In fact, at the time of this review, it has a notably lower price tag than much of its competition, despite its similar claims. Those claims are that using this product will help to increase the metabolism so that fat and calories can be burned more quickly and effectively. It also claims that the product produces appetite suppressing effects that will help to reduce cravings for sweets.
At the time that this review was written, the ingredients making up the formula for Active Woman Define included: konjac mannan, green tea standardized extract, caffeine, and chromium chloride. It is clear that this is a stimulant based product and that many of the benefits that it claims to have will be based on its caffeine content. While caffeine has been shown to help to produce some positive weight loss results when used in combination with a reduced calorie diet and a regular exercise program (because of appetite suppression and metabolism boosting) it is also linked to certain side effects among some users. These can include symptoms such as jitters and shakiness, headache, nausea, tension, nervousness, and sleep struggles.
Because of the powerful stimulants within this product, every serving of two capsules contains an estimated 100 grams of caffeine. That is easily enough to cause a reaction in people who are sensitive to stimulants or who have already had caffeine that day, such as from coffee, tea, some sodas, and even chocolate.
The chromium in this product raises a few red flags when it is carefully considered. The reason is that the Mayo Clinic already refers to this substance as unproven for weight loss, as a great deal more study would be required to link it to the claims that are made about it. Furthermore, the amount within this product is 500 percent of the daily recommended amount. Therefore, it is unknown whether or not this quantity should even be considered safe, regardless of whether or not there is the chance that it could help to encourage fat loss.
