Weight Loss: Why CleanTone Is Worth A Look
I have long been an advocate of healthy living and eating. Of course, like everyone else, I have my binge moments every now and then. A few times, I’ve tried certain weight loss products, like Herbalife or Fittea, but I haven’t really been overwhelmed.
My main concern with any healthy weight products is that you don’t know what’s inside. Most companies hide caffeine, soy, or gluten underneath ‘blends’, where they don’t have to disclose those ingredients. Maybe they contain a well-researched ingredient or two, but it isn’t worth taking them if the other 90% could be harmful. That’s when I came across CleanTone, the newest product from Prosper.
This brand is deeply committed to their mission of making healthy living easier for people like me. They use exclusively earth-grown ingredients in all of their products and formulate benefits based on just published, peer-reviewed scientific literature. More than simply having incredible products, they are setting a new health standard in an industry where it seems like everyone else is cutting corners. CleanTone, their flagship product, is 100% vegan, vegetarian and uses clinically studied ingredients to reduce bloating, increase energy, and boost metabolism. There are four primary ingredients:
Garcinia Cambogia also known as the Malabar tamarind, is a small, sweet tropical tree fruit shaped like a pumpkin. In the late 1960s, scientists discovered an acid in the fruit somewhat similar to the citric acid found in fruits like oranges and lemons.
That acid—called hydroxycitric acid, or HCA—has been clinically shown to reduce the conversion of carbohydrates into stored fat, decreasing your overall body fat ratio.
Red Raspberry contains strong antioxidants such as Vitamin C, quercetin and gallic acid that fight against cancer, heart and circulatory disease and age-related decline. They are high in ellagic acid, also known chemopreventative, and have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.
Green Coffee Bean
Green Coffee Bean Extract provides free radical support and also supports metabolism in order to burn a higher proportion of lipids to carbohydrates. And Green Coffee Bean Extract contains two important polyphenolic compounds- caffeic and chlorogenic acids. Caffeic acid provides a safe energy boost while being naturally low in caffeine. Chlorogenic acids help your body burn its fat deposits at a more rapid rate.
Green Tea Extract is an excellent source of potent polyphenols (bioflavonoids with healthful properties) which help repair tissue dsamage. Research has identified EGCG as the most active polyphenolic compound in Green Tea that supports thermogenesis (fat burning), healthy blood insulin levels and appetite control.
And that’s it. No fillers, no hidden additives. They even go as far to provide the specific clinical studies for each ingredient!
Beyond The Ingredients
Ok, so once I read about the integrity of their ingredients, I decided to check them out a little more. I know that most supplements are made in cGMP Compliant Facilities, but because the FDA can’t go check every manufacturing facilities, there is no way to make sure these companies are actually following the rules. After doing some digging, I was blown away by the steps Prosper has taken to ensure the quality of their nutrients. There were three I was impressed by, and two I’d never even seen before.
cGMP Certified Manufacturing
More than just saying they follow the rules, they’ve actually hired inspectors to come to their facility and certify that they follow FDA recommended guidelines (only about 2 in 10 manufacturers are certified). Solid plus.
Made in the USA
All of their products are not only distributed in the USA, but the ingredients are also from here. I know I’ve seen one too many weight loss products shipped in from China.
Nowhere on their entire site did I find the use of fillers or additives in any of their products. That means I’d be getting larger quantities of healthier nutrients in every serving.
Now this is where it got interesting:
Double Certified Gluten Free
This is something I’ve never seen before. These guys actually certify their entire operation to be Gluten Free, TWICE! That’s not all, they also only allow 10 parts per million gluten which is half as much as the FDA actually allows.
Amber Glass Bottles
A cherry on top – to preserve the quality of the hard-work they put into their ingredients, every product they own is packaged in amber glass bottles to protect their vegan, vegetarian capsules from sun or light damage.
Having tried countless health products before, especially for maintaining healthy weight, I have a good feel for what is a good product. I tried CleanTone and it met all my above criteria. I looked at the literature, read deep into their history, and compared it with everything I had seen before. On all measures, Prospers, and CleanTone impressed me as one of the best.
