Luxxe Slim is a nonprescription supplement based on L-Carnitine. It is meant to help the body to better transport fatty acids – that is the main energy source for the cells – throughout the body. By increasing efficiency in this way, the idea is that the body can benefit in several ways, including through weight loss, improved energy for muscles (including the heart) and better physical performance.
L-Carnitine, says the official Luxxe Slim website, encourages the body to use fat as its energy source. In that way, it will boost stamina and also make sure the body burns off the fat it has stored. For dieters, this can help with a greater level of efficiency in weight loss, assuming that it does actually work in the way the website claims.
At the time this review was written, there were only two active ingredients within the Luxxe Slim formula. They are: L-carnitine and green tea extract. The product package says that each capsule contains 350 mg of L-carnitine and 150 mg of green tea extract.
The product package also recommends that users take two capsules per day along with 8 to 16 ounces of water per capsule. This means that the bottles containing 30 capsules are good for a 15 day supply while the 60 capsule bottles will provide a month’s supply.
Though green tea extract has been shown in several research studies to have benefits for both exercise and weight loss, the daily amount within Luxxe Slim does not reflect the dose used in the research that showed the best results. The studies mainly provided participants with 500 mg per day, but the daily dosage of this product provides only 300 mg per day.
While that doesn’t mean that the amount of green tea extract in this product is inadequate to provide beneficial results, because it doesn’t match the amount used in the research, there’s no way to know whether or not that amount will be enough to produce measurable results.
The website for this product makes a troubling number of medical claims considering that it is not FDA approved. It speaks a lot about L-carnitine, though it does not specifically say that the product itself will lead to the many benefits it lists including heart conditions, recovery from heart attack, Alzheimer’s and other memory impairment issues, chronic fatigue syndrome, and many others. There is absolutely nothing that proves that this specific product will benefit a user in these ways or with weight loss, for that matter.
