Made by respectable company
Good set of ingredients
Some key ingredients missing
Some key ingredients omitted
Arguably too cheap
Mixed customer reviews
The ingredients in this product are good. That’s makes it surprising that a lot of people are saying LeanMode doesn’t work. LOOK ELSEWHERE
It aims to achieve this by providing the most innovative and effective supplements available.
Evlution Nutrition produces two products that bear the name “LeanMode” The first one is a capsule-type supplement. The other is a drink mix.
This review is for the capsule version because, although both products use the same ingredients, the drink mix contains significantly less green tea, green coffee bean extract, and garcinia cambogia. It also contains double the amount of CLA and Acetyl-L-Carnitine.
With such huge differences in the inclusion rates, the drink mix and capsule should be considered two different products. They are the same in name only and are bound to produce different responses in anyone who takes them.
What Is Evlution Nutrition LeanMode?
Some companies provide in-depth information about the supplements they sell, but others provide very little at all. Evlution Nutrition belongs to the latter category.
However, according to the bottle, the product provides stimulant-free weight loss support in several areas:
- Appetite Support
- Metabolism Support
- Fat Burning
- Energy Levels
The company also makes a statement about “5 modes of action”, but fails to explain what these modes are. Presumably, appetite and metabolism support, fat burning, and energy levels are four of them. What’s the fifth one? That’s anybody’s guess.
How Does LeanMode Work?
We’re not dealing with anything fresh and new here. The aforementioned benefits are pretty standard ambitions for weight loss formulas of all kinds.
If LeanMode can make good on the promise of appetite support, it will help people using it to eat less food without having to suffer the torment of hunger pangs. That’s actually a very important diet pill feature.
You won’t get anywhere with your diet unless you stick to healthy food options and keep your calorie intake low. When hunger strikes this can be extremely hard to do. That’s one of the main reasons such a lot of diets fail.
Metabolism is a biological process that extracts energy from food and utilizes it as body fuel. When Evlution Nutrition says LeanMode provides “metabolism support” it’s a little unclear what the company means.
Most fat burning diet pills boost the metabolism. Doing so causes it to burn extra calories. If LeanMode can do this, and successfully suppress hunger as well, it will help create the calorie shortage that is necessary for fat burning.
Many diet pills contain ingredients that increase energy. It looks like LeanMode is designed to do this too. If so, the capsules may help prevent the feelings of lethargy that are sometimes the result of low-calorie living.
Although Evlution Nutrition is pretty stingy when it comes to providing information about the way LeanMode works, the company does provide a complete ingredient profile. No proprietary blends here either. All the inclusion rates are right there in black and white. Kudos to Evlution Nutrition for that.
LeanMode contains some good ingredients. There’s nothing nasty to see here. If only it was always so simple. Time to get to work and see what this formulation is likely to do.
Green Coffee Bean Extract
Roasting green coffee beans and turning them brown may improve the flavor, but it robs them of an important chemical. It’s called chlorogenic acid and its got a good fat burning reputation.
Furthermore, unlike caffeine, it’s not a stimulant and research shows using it long-term may be good for reducing body fat. [SOURCE]
Garcinia cambogia! It sounds like the name of a movie star, but it’s not. Garcinia cambogia is actually a tropical fruit. However, it’s ability to suppress hunger and prevent fat cell formation has allowed it to take a starring role in many weight loss formulations.
Although these are the abilities it’s most famous for, research shows they are only part of a bigger picture.
The results of a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study suggest the hydroxycitric acid (HCA) it provides may also reduce existing body fat. [SOURCE]
Green Tea Extract
There’s no secret about green tea’s ability to boost the metabolism and support thermogenic fat burning. Researchers have proved it time and time again and some evidence suggests the benefits may last 24 hours.
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)
There’s nothing very exotic-sounding about this ingredient, but don’t worry. It’s not something that’s been drained from the transmission of a car. CLA is a fatty acid that’s naturally-occurring in dairy products and beef.
Although it’s probably not going to turbocharge your weight loss, research shows long-term supplementation with CLA can reduce body fat mass. So even if it doesn’t set you on the fast track it should get you there in the end. [SOURCE]
An amino acid that helps the body produce energy. Its ability to do this has allowed Acetyl L-Carnitine to become quite a common inclusion in performance boosting supplements.
The dose is three capsules, two times per day. For best results, the capsules should be taken 30-60 minutes before meals. Evlution Nutrition states the best times are before breakfast and dinner.
A few randomly-selected customer reviews read:
“This is a great product and I’ve seen some great results! I’ve been using it for 8 weeks and can already see a big difference in my weight.”
“Product did nothing at all. Seriously is it meant to be a placebo, or what?”
“I’ve been using these for 6 weeks and have noticed significant changes.”
“If this did anything for me I fail to see what. I’m an active gym-goer and I eat healthy, but this furnished me with zero results.”
“Good quality diet pill that works. I’m losing weight without jitters of side effects so it really is stim free.”
“I’ve been using this for a month and it’s not helping me at all. Instead of reducing hunger it increases it. I’ve been reading a lot of reviews and see other people are saying the same.”
Side Effects and Other Health Considerations
Side effects don’t appear to be an issue with LeanMode. However, Evlution Nutrition states it should not be used by people who have pre-existing medical conditions.
The company also says LeanMode is not intended for anyone who is under 18-years-old or for women who are pregnant or nursing an infant. Nor is it recommended for women who are contemplating becoming pregnant.
Evlution Nutrition also issues a warning that the capsules are manufactured in a facility that may also process compounds that contain milk. This won’t be an issue for most people but will be an important consideration for anyone who is lactose intolerant.
LeanMode Purchasing Options and Considerations
You can buy LeanMode directly from the Evlution Nutrition website. The product is also available via many online suppliers. You can even find it on the shelves of GNC stores. Buying via Amazon.com is another option. However, the price may vary a little from one supplier to the next.
LeanMode comes in a choice of three pack sizes. The smallest is the 10 serving trial size bottle, the largest bottle provides 50 servings, and the 30 serving options sits somewhere in the middle.
At the time of this review, customers purchasing via the Evlution Nutrition website could expect to pay $6.99 for the 10 serving trial pack and $19.99 for a bottle that provides 30 servings. Pricing information was not available for the larger option.
These prices may initially appear unusually cheap, but you have to remember two servings are required each day. That means 30 servings will only last for 15 days.
Evlution Nutrition fails to provide customers with a money back guarantee. All sales are final. The company is very clear about that.
The only time Evlution Nutrition will consider offering a refund or exchange product is when shipments have been damaged in transit.
The Bottom Line
The ingredients in this product are good. That’s makes it surprising that a lot of people are saying LeanMode doesn’t work.
However, it could be that Evlution Nutrition is using ingredients taken from sub-standard sources to try and keep production costs down.
Using coffee as an example. All coffee comes from roasted coffee beans but there’s a big difference between the big brand name coffees and the ones that bear the supermarket’s own label. Cup of dirty dishwater anyone?
Whatever the problem is, it’s a great pity because the world could do with more good stimulant-free fat burners. This one appears to have gone wrong somewhere along the line.
Perhaps that’s why Evlution Nutrition is so adamant “all sales are final” and refuses to offer a money back guarantee.
