The dangers of Zyatonix – is it safe?
With sweeping statements like “kills fat cells” and “better than liposuction” it’s easy to see why Zyatonix has spiked a world-wide interest in its so-called weight-loss properties.
Zyatonix claims to be the best on the market and even has a few celebrity followers to boot, but is it actually as effective as its claims, and most importantly, is it safe?
What is Zyatonix?
At the time of writing this article, the Zyatonix official website was down for maintenance, so it was tricky to find out exactly what the company is claiming Zyatonix is and how it actually works.
What I did find however was that Zyatonix claims to be the ultimate fat burner, going as far as to describe itself as a ‘fat killer’, claiming that its particular blend of ingredients works via a process known as apoptosis, literally translated as ‘cell death’.
Having researched countless other diet pills, I have never come across this particular terminology when describing fat burning properties and my first inclination is that it sounds a little far-fetched. Generally, fat burners work by stimulating the metabolism, helping to burn more calories.
Looking up apoptosis specifically (which involves damage or injury, resulting in death to the particular cells), we suppose you could technically describe fat burning in this way, but the concept is misleading (and frankly quite dramatic!).
How does it claim to work?
There are several claimed ingredients of Zyatonix, but no actual detailed information, making it especially hard to know how exactly this brand works within the body and whether or not it is actually safe.
Perhaps most worrying, is the discovery that Zyantix contains Phenylethylamine HCL, a controversial ingredient that is in essence very similar to ephedrine.
Phenylethylamine HCL is known to cause a number of negative side effects in users such as insomnia, dizziness, paranoia, headache and chest pain.
The other listed ingredients of Zyatonix include:
Hoodia Gordonii – A South African plant that is a known appetite suppressant, now banned from sale in the EU.
Citrus Aurantium – Otherwise known as Bitter Orange, another controversial ingredient that has a list of side effects as long as your arm and banned in Canada.
Dihydroxy Bergamottin – Or Grapefruit Juice, a natural energy booster when taken in the correct dosage.
Yohimbe – Essentially a type of tree bark that is a known mood enhancer, often used to treat erectile dysfunction.
Is it effective?
Without a definitive list of these ingredients it’s impossible to say whether or not Zyatonix will be effective as a weight-loss supplement, so what do its customers say?
Once again, finding independent customer reviews for Zyatonix is not easy, but there is seems to be pretty 50/50. Customers have either found the supplement particularly effective, or not effective at all.
Is it worth buying?
Rating : (1.5/5)
Given that Zyatonix is probably one of the more expensive brands on the market, I would have to say no. There is very little evidence that the formula actually works as a diet pill and what information there is, is not very revealing.
Even if the blend does have some effect on weight-loss, the inclusion of ingredients that are well known as controversial and potentially dangerous is a worry.
There are plenty of other brands on the market that don’t carry the risk of any danger to your health or your wallet.
