Smart Coffee is an instant coffee drink that combines several coffee types. This review will give the advantages and disadvantages of Elevate Smart Coffee and if it is likely to help you lose weight.
The product includes Colombian dark roast beans and espresso, with caffeine anhydrous and several other ingredients that have been added to boost energy levels, improve cognitive function, and help with weight loss.
It’s one one of several products brought to market by a company called Elevacity.
Other than the fact the company was founded in Frisco, Texas in 2014 we haven’t been able to find out much about Elevacity.
However, the company distributes its products via a network of Multi-Level-Marketing partners and many of them have created their own sites to promote Smart Coffee and spiced-up the claims made for the product.
What Is Smart Coffee and How Does It Work?
Elevacity Smart Coffee is a powder-type supplement that can be purchased in a tub or in individual one-shot sachets. A tub will provide 30 servings whereas a box of sachets will provide 24 servings.
The product description on the Elevacity website claims the coffee powder provides natural amino acids that possess nootropic qualities that allow them to assist with energy, mental clarity, memory, creativity, and motivation.
Other promised benefits include
- Curbs cravings
- Elevates the mood
- Burns fat
None of the sites promoting the product explains how any of these things are supposed to be achieved and the Elevacity website is no exception.
Each serving provides 3.1g of a proprietary blend that contains an unspecified amount of the following 12 active ingredients.
- Dark Roast Coffee
- Espresso Coffee
- Green Coffee Bean
- Green Tea
- Caffeine Anhydrous
- Canola Lecithin
- Beta-Phenylethylamine HCL
- Kigelia African Extract
- Juglans Regia Extract
There are also 9 additional ingredients that have presumably been added to improve the texture and flavour:
- Coffee and Vanilla flavour
- Acacia Gum
- Brown Rice Syrup
- Natural Flavours
- Silicon Dioxide
- Sunflower Lecithin
- D Alpha Tocopherols
- High Oleic Sunflower Oil
Elevate Smart Coffee Formula / Blend
To be fair, some of the ingredients are known to be capable of supporting weight loss.
Green tea is a proven fat burner and green coffee bean extracts provide a chemical called chlorogenic acid that has a similarly good fat burning reputation.
However, there are 12 ingredients in the Smart Coffee proprietary blend, no inclusion rates are supplied, and it seems likely the formulation will not provide enough of them to allow Smart Coffee to provide much of a kick in the weight loss department.
The list of ingredients shows several sources of caffeine, three of which are coffee beans and one of which (caffeine anhydrous) is a potent caffeine powder.
Caffeine is added to energy-providing drinks and supplements because it’s good for invigorating the mind and body. It’s also capable of boosting mental focus and concentration.
Cocoa provides theobromine, which can have a positive effect on the mood. L-Theanine is a stress-fighting amino acid capable of relaxing the mind without causing sedation.
Looking at the blend as a whole, it’s possible the formulation will provide some of the nootropic benefits that are mentioned on the Elevacity website, though the inclusion rates may be too low.
The dose is one stick or one scoop and the powder can be mixed with cold or hot water in a similar way to normal coffee.
It’s also permissible to mix add it to a standard cup of coffee or any other favoured drink.
No other instructions are supplied, but we are assuming only one cup is required per day.
Elevate Smart Coffee Customer Feedback
The amount of good reviews available to read online slightly outnumbers the amount of bad reviews but we are not seeing anything that suggests a particularly potent product.
Some typical customer reviews read:
“This suppresses the appetite ok for the first few weeks then the effects disappear.”
“It tastes nice. Better than normal coffee. I feel more energetic for a while after I’ve drunk it, but I haven’t noticed any change in my appetite and I haven’t lost weight.”
“This is blooming expensive stuff but I absolutely love it because it fills me with energy and keeps me full of beans.”
“Does not work all that good. It gives me a bit of energy but, nothing special.”
“I’ve lost a couple of pounds. That’s good I suppose, but I don’t think it’s worth the money.”
Elevate Smart Coffee Side Effects
No side effects have been reported, but the formulation is unlikely to be suitable for women who are pregnant or nursing a child.
People who have pre-existing health issues or are planning on consuming Smart Coffee alongside medication are advised to discuss the matter with a doctor before use of the product is commenced.
Where to Buy Smart Coffee
It’s possible to buy Smart Coffee via the company website but registration is required and, unless you have been referred by an Elevacity “Elepreneur”, this will not be possible.
However, some Elepreneurs are distributing the product via their own websites and others are selling it via Amazon, all be it at a greatly increased price.
There is a guarantee, but most Elepreneurs fail to disclose it on their sites and it’s only good for 30-days.
As a weight loss aid, the abilities of this product is likely to range from limited to none.
When it comes to providing extra energy, the results are likely to be better because the formulation contains several sources of caffeine which probably add up to make a reasonable dose.
The presence of this powerful stimulant should also boost mental focus and concentration.
The lack of inclusion rates makes it impossible to speculate on the formulation’s value in other areas, but any number of quality nootropic supplements are likely to provide a more significant mental boost at a fraction of the price.
