Is AlphaViril a Scam

Is AlphaViril a Scam Testosterone Boosting Supplement? – Review You Should Read

HFL’s AlphaViril supplement can supposedly boost your testosterone and increase your libido–and is even said to work like five products in one–but is it really as good as Dr Sam Robbins claims it to be?

Or is AlphaViril a scam that is just going to be a waste of your money–getting your hopes up for nothing?

You are probably reading my review now because you don’t quite trust what Dr Sam Robbins says about it–it just sounds too good to be true, which was exactly what I thought at first as well and is the reason I am writing this review now.

I first came across AlphaViril after landing on the video presentation you can see here…

video presentation

There are so many scam testosterone boosting products out on the market that simply don’t work, that I am always suspicious when I come across something that sounds a little bit toooo good.

One of the main selling points to this particular supplement is that it attacks low testosterone problems from multiple different angles–by not only helping boost testosterone levels but also by decreasing levels of “anti-testosterone hormones”.

AlphaViril Review

  • Product – AlphaViril
  • Manufacturer – HFL Solutions (by Dr Sam Robbins)
  • Price – $49.97/bottle (price drops if you purchase more than 1)
  • Recommended? – To some extent (more on this)
  • Where to Buy – Official website here

As we already know, AlphaViril is a 100% natural testosterone boosting supplement created by Dr Sam Robbins and sold under his brand, HFL Solutions. Dr Robbins claims that he originally formulated AlphaViril back in 1999 and used exclusively with professional athletes, but has since expanded the marketing around it–now selling it to the general public so that anyone can buy it.

The potential benefits of this supplement, as stated on the website, include…benefits of AlphaViril
Among it’s many claimed benefits, Dr Robbins also claims that it has no negative side effects–although this does not seem to be the case and I will talk more about it shortly.

Ingredients

There is a long list of ingredients included in this supplement and it is formulated to work in seven different areas, including:

  1. Testosterone Optimizer – Testofen (Fenugreek extract), Avena Sativa, Tongkat Ali, maca root
    • These are the ingredients intended to increase levels of total testosterone and free testosterone in the body.
  2. LH, FSH, SHBG Optimizer – Pro-Tribulus Terrestris, Stinging Nettle, Ginger
    • While these ingredients also have a testosterone boosting effect, they are primarily included here for their benefits of helping keep testosterone levels high over longer periods of time.
  3. Female Hormone Optimizer – DIM, White Button Mushroom, Vitex Agnus
    • This is the complex of ingredients that are included in the formula to help lower “anti-testosterone hormones”, such as estrogen.
  4. DHT Optimizer – Zinmax, Zinc Picolinate, Copper, Selenium
    • DHT is a male sex hormone that is commonly associated with male pattern baldness. It is an androgen that is a byproduct of testosterone. These ingredients are intended to keep DHT in line so that you don’t experience the negative effects of it–and also to help improve prostate health.
  5. Stress Optimizer – Sensoril, Ashwagandha, Horny Goat Weed
    • These ingredients are for targeting stress hormones–helping reduce them which can benefit overall health–but they also have testosterone boosting effects.
  6. PDE-5 & Nitric Oxide Optimizer – Xanthoparmelia Scabrosa, L-Arginine
    • Here are the ingredients that Dr Robbins tells us are for improving nitric oxide production (although there are others). L-Arginine is a commonly included ingredient for NO boosting supplements and is well studied in this area. These can help give you a better pump in the gym and increase blood flow to the penis.
  7. Dopamine Optimizer – Macuna Pruriens
    • Macuna Pruriens is thrown into the mix to help increase dopamine production, providing you with a happier, better feeling. This is a good source of L-DOPA, which is a precursor to dopamine and can increase levels of such.

Now if you have ever bought testosterone boosting supplements in the past, you are probably familiar with many of the ingredients listed above, such as horny goat weedL-Arginine (doesn’t boost test but is often included in test boosting supplements), tribulus, and so on.

A lot of the ones included here have been used for thousands of years and traditional Eastern medicine and some are more modern findings. Not every ingredient has the best scientific backing for its effectiveness on humans, but overall there is a decent amount of scientific evidence that supports the supplements in it of these ingredients for its intended use–although I would definitely like to see more evidence.

Dosage

But of course the ingredients are only one part of the equation. In order for this all to work, there has to be the right amount of each ingredient and unfortunately this is where I think the product falls very short.

Below you can see a picture of the label of AlphaViril…

AlphaViril

Every ingredient that I listed above, the entire blend, makes up less than 1 gram total per serving, which is very low.

Maybe this “doctor formulated” dosage works surprisingly well with all of the different ingredients in combination, but this is still concerning to me.

For example, horny goat weed, as mentioned is often included in test boosting supplements, has only really been shown to increase testosterone levels in rats at very high doses–doses much higher than that included here.

Side Effects

We are told that there are no side effects to taking the supplement, but it seems that many who have taken it would beg to differ.

In my research I read over quite a few user reviews and found that heartburn is a side effect that is somewhat common, some people have experienced nausea after taking it, and one person even said they felt like they’re going to have a heart attack (although this definitely does not seem to be common).

For the majority of people out there, there probably will not be any negative side effects worth mentioning, because the doses included here are so low, but there is the potential for some.

Is The Money-back Guarantee Real?

If you have come across promotional material for AlphaViril then I am sure you have heard all about the money back guarantee–in which Dr Sam Robbins claims that if this doesn’t help improve testosterone levels in 30 days you will get a full refund plus an additional $100 back for free.

He makes the same guarantees with his other products as well, such as Blood Flow Optimizer, but unfortunately you should not get your hopes up thinking that you will ever actually be able to get them to follow through on this guarantee.

Just think about–they would have to be absolutely crazy to offer a guarantee like this with the hopes of staying in business. 

If AlphaViril didn’t work for you and you did try to claim your full refund plus $100 cash back, you would probably be asked to provide lab tests showing your testosterone levels before and after as proof–and even if you could provide these, how could you ever prove that you actually took the recommended doses for the recommended period of time?

This is just a somewhat scammy marketing tactic that likely holds no truth (truth as we are led to believe that is).

What Others Are Saying

AlphaViril also sells on Amazon and at the time of me writing this there are over 90 reviews left by customers, who have supposedly tried it. 

Overall it’s rating is surprisingly good, with an average of 4 out of 5 stars…
AlphaViril Reviews Amazon

That said, I review products all the time and have developed somewhat of a keen eye for fake reviews–and I am no doubt suspicious of the legitimacy of many of the reviews left for this product. Some of them just seem to be fake and not very realistic.

Conclusion – Is It Worth The Money?

While I do think that AlphaViril definitely holds some promise and has the potential to boost testosterone levels naturally to some extent, in my opinion it is overpriced and a bit overhyped as well.

Whether or not it is worth the money is ultimately a decision that is up to you. It does include a lot of good ingredients that have some scientific backing, so it might be worth a try.

What do you think? I’m always interested in hearing the opinions of my readers–so please leave your comments or questions below 🙂 And if you have tried AlphaViril then I would really appreciate you leaving a short review describing your experience with it.

Blood Flow Optimizer scam

Blood Flow Optimizer – Scam or Anti-aging Miracle Supplement?

Blood Flow Optimizer is most commonly marketed for its anti-aging benefits, in which it is said to provide all around better health, such as more energy, less fatigue, healthier looking skin, thicker hair, etc.

But does it really work as good as you are told? Can you really trust Dr Sam Robbins? Or would this better be summed up as being a scam that everyone should avoid?

The reason you’re probably reading this review is because the product is obviously overhyped, at least to some extent. What I mean by this is that things just seem a bit too good to be true–the product is often promoted as some sort of miracle worker and in this review I will be giving you a realistic look at Blood Flow Optimizer without all the hype.

Spoiler alert – It’s not the amazing product that is claimed to be.

The Sales Pitch

As you probably know, the man behind this supplement goes by the name of Dr Sam Robbins.

There is a bunch of different promotional material out there on the internet for Blood Flow Optimizer but what I came across was a video presentation as you can see pictured below, in which this supplement is said to improve blood circulation in just a few hours, and is one of the most valuable anti-aging solutions there is…

video presentation

It’s all about improving blood flow, which has an effect on every single part of your health. Poor blood flow means poor overall health, and thus good blood flow means better overall health. So yes, it is totally possible for a product to give you healthier hair, shinier skin, more energy, less fatigue, less ED problems, Etc just by improving blood flow.

And it is also true that many of the drugs doctors typically recommend don’t address the real problem that comes with aging and leads to less blood flow, which is plaque buildup. Instead, they prescribed drugs that will help thin your blood but don’t really do anything to get rid of the plaque, which will continue to build up and the problem will just keep getting worse.

Blood Flow Optimizer is said to attack the problem from multiple angles, by decreasing plaque buildup, strengthening the walls of your arteries, and preventing future plaque buildup.

In the video presentation that I watched, Dr Sam Robbins explain that it works to improve blood flow and overall health in seven different ways…

  1. Thins blood and helps improve circulation
  2. Supports proper fibrin function and healthy blood clotting
  3. Helps move excess minerals out of your arteries and to places in your body where they need to be
  4. Promotes strong and flexible blood vessels
  5. Works as an anti-inflammatory
  6. Helps remove heavy metals and toxins
  7. Has antioxidant properties–which fights free radical damage

Over-hyped?

As mentioned, the reason you are reading my review is probably because you think this sounds too good to be true, and it does–which reminds me of other overhyped products I’ve reviewed in the past like Internal 911.

And don’t worry, you and I aren’t the only people to think this. A consumer protection group called The ASRC actually reached out to HFL Solutions (the company who makes this product) and asked them to discontinue many of the unbacked ridiculous claims that they were using to market Blood Flow Optimizer.

You can read the article by the ASRC (council of the Better Business Bureau) if you wish, but below I took a screenshot to show you a summary of what the article was about…

screenshot

And while it appears that they have cut back on some of the unbacked ridiculous claims made, I would still definitely consider this supplement to be very overhyped–meaning it probably is not going to work as good as you would think based on the promotional material.

But anyways, let’s get into the actual review and talk about what’s in this product and whether or not it is going to do anything for you.

Blood Flow Optimizer Review

Blood Flow Optimizer is a supplement that consists of 100% natural ingredients which are intended to increase blood flow and improve overall health, which is being mostly marketed to people getting into their later years looking for anti-aging benefits.

And as I just went over, it is an overhyped product, so much so that the ASRC felt the need to get involved and ask them to quit making many of the claims that they were with regards to Blood Flow Optimizer’s benefits.

Ingredients

Below is the label from Blood Flow Optimizer which I found on the official website…

ingredients


Will it work?

It does provide a good array of different vitamins and amino acids, which are well known to have energy boosting qualities, and can make you feel younger. You then have a few somewhat strange ingredients, such as white willow extract that has been used as a traditional medicine for thousands of years and is said to help with fevers, inflammation, migraines, increasing blood flow, etc.–but overall, like I said, there really isn’t all that much to it.

The recommended dosage varies a lot. It is recommended that you take at least one pill twice per day, but most people probably won’t notice any positive effects from this amount, or at least very little.

All of the ingredients combined don’t even make up 1 gram per serving–one serving being one pill.

Based on what I see here it seems that this supplement is significantly overpriced and really doesn’t provide all that much.

And as far as the reviews go, things don’t look too promising. It is actually sold on Amazon as well as the official website and these are some of the most recent reviews…

Amazon reviews

Who Is Dr Sam Robbins?

There Is a lot of controversy surrounding Dr Sam Robbins. In fact, if you do a quick Google search for his name you will find many people calling him a “quack” and “phony”–lots of complaints.

He is the founder of HFL Solutions, the company who manufactures Blood Flow Optimizer, and is most well known for promoting testosterone boosting supplements.

The good information I was able to find on him is very limited. He does appear to be a real person, contrary to what many people claim, but 99% of the information I was able to find comes from people complaining about him and isn’t even really worth mentioning.

Cost

The cost varies depending on how many bottles you purchase…

  • 1 bottle – $49.97
  • 2 bottles – $39.97
  • 4 bottles – $34.97
  • 6 bottles – $29.97

One thing that I noticed right away is that there is a massive price difference depending on whether you purchase one bottle versus six bottles–nearly a 50% discount.

Now this may sound great and all, but I actually had a problem with it. If they are still able to profit from selling bottles at $29.97 a piece, then does the original price really need to be $49.97 per bottle in the first place?

In my opinion this supplement is very overpriced.

Money-back Guarantee

One of the big selling points that you may have heard is there a money back guarantee. According to the website, “if Blood Flow Optimizer doesn’t help improve your blood flow and reduce arterial plaque at the end 30 days, you’ll get a full refund + an additional $100.00 cash back”. 

Really? You get a full refund plus an extra $100 cash back?

I’m pretty sure that no one is ever going to receive a full refund Plus $100 extra, the reason being because no one is ever going to prove that this supplement didn’t improve their blood flow at the end of 30 days–unless they had a bunch of doctor tests performed before and after showing the difference.

So definitely do not count on this guarantee. It Is just another somewhat scammy marketing tactic.

Conclusion – Worth a Try or Not?

While Blood Flow Optimizer definitely does have the potential to improve blood flow, thus improving overall health, my finds have been disappointing. It seems to be another overhyped and overpriced product that many people likely won’t see much effect from.

For this reason I am not going to be personally recommending it–because I think there are much more fairly priced products on the market that give you a lot more bang for your buck.

What do you think? I like to hear from my readers and would appreciate any comments or questions left below down in the comment section…

does Ear Clear Plus really work

Does Ear Clear Plus Really Work? – Scam Alert

Ear Clear Plus is said to target the root cause of tinnitus 100% naturally, but will this really do the trick? Is this really the cure-all that they make it seem to be?

Does Ear Clear Plus really work? 

Or is this just another scam that is going to be a waste of your time and money?

The questions of whether or not this actually works and if it is a scam are definitely not out of line. There are many scam products out there being marketed to people who are desperate for a solution to their tinnitus–products that don’t work and are being sold for ridiculous prices.

Right off the bat, this sounds like a scam…

I’m guessing you are probably thinking the same thing, after all, you are reading my review right now looking for more information on this product.

You probably watched the ridiculous video presentation from “Greg Peterson”, which was insanely long. (If you were able to make it through the entire video, then you deserve a pat on the back.) 

The video starts out with Greg talking about how he almost committed suicide on his birthday right in front of his family–and how this horrific event then sent him on a two-year journey that led to the discovery of this natural cure to tinnitus.

The video presentation is filled with a lot of hype and ridiculous claims–which make the supplement sound way too good to be true. Greg acts as if he has come across some newly discovered miracle cure to the problem that is going to work for everyone, which seems a bit suspicious since there are numerous different causes of tinnitus.

Lots of Typical Scam Marketing Tactics

Of course, just like nearly every other miracle cure tinnitus supplement being marketed out there, Greg claims that pharmaceutical companies and the medical establishment are “willing to spill blood to keep tinnitus sufferers away from it”.

I could making a long list of other scammy products I have reviewed in the past that have used this same exact marketing tactic–that of making you think that the entire medical establishment is out to get you and they are trying to shut this amazing new miracle down. For example, the promotional material behind Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol and Tinnitec said the same thing.

Now while I am definitely not a big fan of the pharmaceutical companies and I do agree that they probably do let greed get the best of them quite often, they are not always there “bad guys” and even if they were, it definitely does NOT mean that Ear Clear Plus is the answer.

Not only does much of what is said in the video presentation make this supplement sound like a scam, it also doesn’t help that “Greg Peterson” is probably a fictitious character that was made up just to promote this scammy product…

As you can see below, the image that was shown of him in the video presentation is actually a stock photo…

But enough about the video presentation let’s move on to the actual review of this product and talk about whether or not it is going to work…

Ear Clear Plus Review

  • Name: Ear Clear Plus
  • Type: Tinnitus supplement
  • Manufacturer: Alliance Health
  • Price: 3 bottle plan at $59/bottle; 6 bottle plan at $49/bottle
  • Recommended?: No, and for good reason

Overview: Ear Clear Plus is a 100% natural supplement that is intended to treat tinnitus.

The supplement’s success is based on a “newly found” cause of tinnitus that has to do with damaged in the synopsis of the brain, which leads to faulty connections in the brain and causes tinnitus among other problems.

It consists of a concoction of different natural ingredients that supposedly help treat the root cause of the problem, and is not just supposed to help lessen the severity of it as many supplements do.

Ingredients

The Different ingredients included are:

  • Hibiscus
  • Hawthorn berries
  • Olive leaves
  • Niacin
  • Garlic
  • Buchu leaves
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin B6
  • Green tea
  • Juniper berries
  • Uva Ursi
  • Vitamin C

This supplement contains a long list of very different ingredients that are intended to attack the problem from multiple angles, such as by helping to calm the nervous system, detoxify the body, improve neural connections, boost the immune system, along with many of the ingredients having good anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties–which are good for pretty much any health problem.

Sounds good and all, but will these really do the trick? I mean–let’s be honest here– green tea, vitamin C, vitamins B6 and B12, niacin, garlic… most people are probably very familiar with these ingredients and many probably consume them adequately on a regular basis–AND STILL HAVE TINNITUS!

Olive leaves, hawthorn berries, hibiscus, buchu leaves, juniper, and uva ursi are the only “somewhat unusual” ingredients on the list and unfortunately there is definitely NOT any strong evidence suggesting that these are going to be the miracle cures for the condition.

But then again–the mainstream medical establishement is trying to cover this all up, right? They are “willing to spill blood” to keep this all a secret according to “Greg Peterson”.

Ingredients Concern

Unfortunately there is very limited information that I have been able to find on the ingredients in this supplement. In fact, the ingredients that are listed above came from the video presentation. I have not been able to find an official list by the company or anything like that. 

Additionally, we have absolutely no idea how much of each ingredient is actually in the supplement. For all we know, it could be made of 99% “filler” ingredients and only 1% of the ingredient mix listed above.

Cost

Just as expected, the price you will have to pay to get your hands on a bottle of this is pretty ridiculous–which is to be expected since this seems to be another supplement being marketed to those desperate for a cure.

The price varies depending on how many bottles you purchase. If you purchase three bottles you will get each one for the price of $59, but if you purchase six bottles you’ll get each one at a price of $49 a piece.

Awesome–all that money and you don’t really even know what you’re getting.

The Company Behind This

Alliance Health

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to supplements and things that I am putting in my body, I want to be darn sure that the company manufacturing them can be trusted.

Unfortunately, there is absolutely no reason to trust the company behind this product, which is “Alliance Health”.

Above you can see the logo for this Alliance Health company. The reason I put it there is because there seem to be several different companies with the same name–and of course this one in particular has virtually no background information.

I have not been able to dig up any information of value regarding this company–and I definitely DO NOT trust them.

Conclusion – Worth a Try or Not?

While there is some scientific evidence that the ingredients included in this supplement can help facilitate the repair of neural connections in your brain (very limited and not concrete by any means), and this can potentially help with tinnitus, saying that it is going to cure the ringing in your ears in just a few weeks is one heck of a bold statement to make–and one that I definitely do not believe.

Ear Clear Plus seems to be another overhyped product that is just going to get a bunch of people’s hopes up and then let them down–having wasted money and still have the problem they were trying to fix in the first place.

While there is some possibility that this supplement could help with tinnitus, it is definitely not something I will be recommending to my readers.

I hope you enjoyed this review and found it helpful. Please share this post to help spread the truth–the real truth.

Also, leave any comments or questions below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂

Blood Sugar Premier scam

Is Blood Sugar Premier a Scam? – What They Don’t Tell You

Blood Sugar Premier sounds too good to be true, does it not? 

Many of the promotions for this natural supplement make it sound like the greatest treatment for diabetes to ever bless this earth--but let's be honest here--things sound a scammy.

Could Blood Sugar Premier be a scam? 

Will this supplement actually work?

I had my suspicions upon coming across this products so I decided to dig a little deeper into things and in this review I'll be going over my findings.

Spoiler Alert: Blood Sugar Premier is NOT as good as they claim!

The Sales Pitch

My guess is that you probably came across the video presentation for Blood Sugar Premier. You know, the one about some "2000-year-old Chinese... secret"…

Blood Sugar Premier video

The video presentation is very over-hyped and is sure to make anyone a bit suspicious of what is actually going on here. Overall it just sounds too good to be true… And you know what they say about things that sound too good to be true--they probably aren't true.

It reminds me a lot of the sales pitches for Gluco Type 2 and Vedda Blood Sugar Remedy, two other scammy diabetes products I've reviewed in the past.

In the video the spokesman talks about how there have been new blood sugar secrets found in some ancient book called "the Old Testament of natural health", written by the father of Chinese medicine.

Of course... some ancient book in a faraway land--this is usually how it goes.

I've reviewed quite a few scammy supplements in my day and it seems that many of them use very similar sales pitches. 

Usually they claim that some new "secret" has been discovered in some remote part of the world. Usually it is some method, secret ingredient, etc. that has been used for thousands of years in secret--which is similar to what is being said here.

Testimonials with no proof... Right on cue...

In the video presentation we are shown a bunch of testimonials from people emailing the company expressing their thanks and gratitude… But of course there is absolutely no proof that these testimonials are real.

They could easily be fake…

testimonial

"The mainstream medical industry wants to sweep these discoveries back under the rug"

And… Just as expected… We are told that this new "secret" discovery is trying to be covered up by the mainstream medical industry.

There have been plenty of supplements I have reviewed that have had promotions saying something along these lines. Usually they tell you that "big Pharma" is out to shut them down and that you need to watch the presentation until the end right now, and buy the product before it is gone forever, which is basically exactly what they are telling you in this video…

screenshot

Now while I do agree that the big pharmaceutical companies often let greed get the best of them and have much more power than they should have, I don't believe that any large pharmaceutical company is actually trying to get this video presentation taken down--because I don't think it is any threat to them.

Bad and misleading information...

We are told in the presentation that the writer of this "lost book" in which Blood Sugar Premier has been formulated from went by the name of Shen Nong...

Blood Sugar Premier book

What is said is that this guy is the father of Chinese medicine-who tested over 350 different herbs for medicinal purposes, created acupuncture and even discovered tea--BUT what we are not told is that this guy actually might be a mythological Chinese deity in folk religion.

In other words… We don't even know if this guy actually existed!

He is often depicted with horns and such--which seems to be comparable to the mythological Greek gods.

That said, there are supposedly books that have been written by Shen Nong, many of which have been lost--and we are told that some of the lost information has now been found…

screenshot

While I did find some information about some of the books he supposedly wrote being lost, such as 'Shen Nong Jin' and Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing'-- I found nothing about them being "found".

So ya--a lot of confusing, misleading, and unbacked information being fed to us in the video presentation.

But enough about that… Let's talk about whether or not the supplement actually works…

Blood Sugar Premier  Review

  • Product: Blood Sugar Premier by Zenith Labs
  • Cost: $49/bottle (less expensive the more you buy)
  • Recommended?: Not really
  • Where to Buy: Official website here

Blood Sugar Premier is a 100% natural blood-glucose lowering supplement that can supposedly reduce blood sugar levels so that you can live a healthier and more enjoyable life, without taking potentially harmful medication.

The supplement is manufactured by a company called Zenith Labs, which isn't exactly the most trustworthy company, but I will get more into that in a bit.

Overall I would not really recommend taking the supplement, although you could potentially see some positive results and there won't be any harmful side effects. There is some good to it, it's just not nearly as good as we are led to believe from the video presentation and ridiculous sales pitches that are floating around the Internet.

Ingredients

Below you can see the label from Blood Sugar Premier and its list of ingredients…

Blood Sugar Premier ingredients

Now there are a lot of different ingredients there, but the top 3 ingredients that much of the focus of the video presentation is on include berberine, curcumin, and piperine (black pepper fruit extract).

And--we are told that this supplement contains "the perfect ratio of berberine, curcumin, and piperine"--which of course we were all expecting to be told based on the over-hyped sales pitch.

Berberine

Berberine is an alkaloid that can be found in a variety of different herbs, including Chinese Goldthread, and has traditionally be used in Chinese medicine. It's uses include everything from helping with diabetes, to lowering cholesterol, to helping with weight loss and more.

A study published in 2016 in the International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Medicine concluded berberine to be a "potent oral hypoglycemic agent". In the study patients with type 2 diabetes went through 8 weeks of treatment taking 300mg of berberine three times per day and showed decreases in blood glucose, cholesterol and more.

The mechanisms in which it is able to decrease blood glucose levels are still not completely clear, but some researchers believe it comes from berberine's ability to alter Bifidobacterium species, which are a species of gut bacteria that live inside us all.

Additionally, berberine has been shown to help break down fat deposits and prevent them from forming around the pancreas--which helps keep the pancreas functioning as it should and helping keep blood sugar down.

Curcumin

Curcumin is a compound found in the turmeric root, which is part of the ginger plant family.

Among its most well known benefits are that of it's anti-inflammatory effects--but it has also been shown to have some benefit at lowering blood glucose levels--although more human studies on this matter would be nice.

One interesting study published in Diabetes Care that I came across tested curcumin's treatment ability with pre-diabetics, aka people who would likely develop diabetes. In this study the pre-diabetics were separated into 2 groups, one group supplemented curcumin and the other took a placebo. The results were pretty darn good--after 9 months of treatment 16.4% of the placebo group developed diabetes while no one form the curcumin group did.

Piperine

Piperine itself does have some anti-diabetic, and has been shown to mitigate obesity and type 2 diabetes in rates, but the main reason for it being in this supplement is its ability to increase the absorption of curcumin.

Curcumin isn't absorbed easily by the body and piperine is well known and proven to increase its absorption as well as the absorption of many other compounds.

Do The Ingredients Actually Work?

The first thing that I want to point out is that the amount of curcumin included here is very small. It only contains 50mg of turmeric extract and who knows how good this extract actually is. Most turmeric supplements will say "95% standardized curcuminoids", but this makes no mention of such.

Also, the 50mg of berberine hydrochloride might not be nearly enough. The one study that I mentioned above (also talked about in the video presentation) where berberine was shown to have anti-diabetic effects--patients were given 300mg of berberine three times per day!--that's a heck of a lot more than 50mg!

Not only is the amount of science on this particular subject very limited and not all that well proven--but the science that is out there leads me to believe that the amount of the main ingredients in this supplement simply are not enough.

You might see some results, but this is without a doubt a disappointing find.

The Company Behind This Supplement - Can They Be Trusted?

One of the big problems I have with this supplement is the fact that it is manufactured by a company called Zenith Labs, which doesn't exactly have the best reputation.

First off… They don't have much of any reputation at all, besides that of selling other scammy products like Hearing X3 and Vision 20.

Much of the information I have found out about this company doesn't really add up. For example, on their website (zenithlabs.com) they state their address as being…

Zenith Labs location

...but when I did a Google search for this address I not find anything about any Zenith Labs.

The only company I could find at this address is called Corporate Disk Company who specializes in making CD's, DVD's, etc.--which obviously has nothing to do with supplements.

Strange isn't it?

I don't know about you, but if I am taking something like a supplement, that I am putting in my body--I want to be able to trust the company behind it. Unfortunately I cannot trust this company because they don't give much reason for me to trust them.

Final Thoughts - Scam or Not?

I think that Blood Sugar Premier is a pretty good example of another overhyped supplement that is not going to perform as well as we are led to believe.

There is definitely some potential here for it to decrease blood glucose levels and benefit your overall health, but from what I see I wouldn't keep my hopes up too much.

The sales pitch is ridiculously misleading, it contains fairly low doses of the main 3 ingredients, and Zenith Labs just doesn't seem like a very trustworthy company--pretty disappointing.

Keto Blast Scam

Is Keto Blast a Scam? – Read Before Buying!

Is Keto Blast really the ketosis-inducing supplement that is claims to be? Is this the real deal or is this just another scam supplement that you should avoid at all costs?

It is often advertised as having the benefits of…

  • Burning fat for energy, not carbs
  • Releasing fat stores
  • Increasing energy
  • Making you feel better

... and on top of that is said to be made with "100% natural ingredients". 

It sounds like the real deal, but of course things are not always as they sound. With all of the hype surrounding the keto diet craze, it's no wonder that you were suspicious this might be another scam.

When I first came across this supplement I was thinking the same thing. This led me to doing some research and coming to the conclusion that this supplement is NOT worth purchasing

So if you are thinking about buying into this, think again. You will see in this review why I am saying this.

Misleading Claims

Products like Keto Blast bring out the worst in the online marketing world, which is well known for dishonest and unethical marketing tactics.

One of the tactics marketers are using to sell this Keto Blast supplement as well as other Keto supplements is by claiming that it has been featured on the popular TV show Shark Tank.

But this is all a lie. In fact, I was able to actually find a tweet by Mark Cuban warning about KETO scams going around. 

*For those of you who don't know, Mark Cuban is one of the hosts on Shark Tank.

Mark Cuban Tweet

Besides that, there is a lot of misleading information published directly on the website where you purchase Keto Blast, which is buyketoblast.com (might be other websites selling it too, I don't know).

For example, they claim that a recent study found that Keto Blast supports ketosis, which is simply not true. What the study found was that one of the ingredients in Keto Blast does support ketosis, but they did not test the Keto Blast supplement directly.

Shady Sales Tactics

When I was looking into this possible scam I also came across quite a few shady sales tactics.

For one, on the official website there was a warning displayed at the top of the screen that claimed there to be a limited supply and that I should "HURRY!". However, I don't think there is any truth to this warning and it seems to be one of many false scarcity sales tactics used by somewhat unethical online marketers.

This warning seems to be there at every time of the day, everyday... Just doesn't seem real.

screemshot

As I was going about looking for information on the supplement I came across quite a few reviews (which seemed to fake) promoting Keto Blast. 

Not only did they seem fake, but some of them included links for me to purchase it and instead took me to purchase a different supplement. For example, on one review site they had a button for me to purchase Keto Blast and when I clicked on it took me to purchase some sex pill called Serexin...

serexin

My first impression when looking into this all was that this seems really scammy. It reminds me of some other scammy Keto supplements that I've reviewed, such as Keto Ultra Diet Pills.

But anyways, enough about why it seems like a scam… Let's talk about the product itself in whether or not it works. Because this is what it's all about, right?

KETO Blast Review

  • Product: KETO Blast
  • Type: Ketosis supplement
  • Price: $46.99 - $59.99/bottle (from what I've seen)
  • Recommended?: No

In a nutshell, Keto Blast is a supplement that is supposed to help you achieve a state of ketosis.

What is ketosis?

Only the biggest health craze ever!… No, but seriously... Ketosis is the term used to describe the state when one's body begins burning fat for the main source of energy rather than carbohydrates.

There are lots of benefits to ketosis, although there is still a lot more research that needs to be done on this area. Some of the said benefits include…

  • Higher energy levels
  • More steady energy
  • Fat loss
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Better cholesterol levels
  • Appetite reduction
  • And more...

Normally you would have to achieve a state of ketosis by eating a diet very high in fats and a very low in carbs. This way your body is forced to use fat as an energy source because there just aren't enough carbs for it to fuel your body with.

However, anyone who has tried a keto diet knows that they can be quite difficult to stick to, which is where supplements like Keto Blast come into play... By helping you achieve a state of ketosis without as much effort.

How It Works (If At All)

Keto Blast is all about an ingredient called Beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB), which is said to be what can help induce a state of ketosis in your body even if your diet isn't all that great.

Is There Proof That BHB Works?

Yes there is, although this particular topic is still relatively new and has lots of room for research.

A 2017 study published in Frontiers in Physiology took a look at the effects of taking BHB on 15 participants. The participants consumed a drink that contained the substance and the results were positive, which led to the conclusion that ingesting such is a practical way to achieve ketosis.

In this study the participants consumed either 12g or 24g of BHB per drink.

The problem here is that I have no idea how much BHB is actually in this KETO Blast supplement. The information on it is limited and they don't state the amount of ingredients on the official website, which is a bit concerning to say the least.

Can You Really Trust This Supplement?

Besides the fact that there are many scammy marketing tactics being used to promote this supplement and the fact that the company doesn't give much information on the ingredients included, it is also worth noting that there has been a pattern of complaints with the BBB about Keto Blast, as you can see here…

Keto Blast BBB

And yes this company does have a F rating, which is as bad as it gets.

I don't even know if I'd call this "Keto Blast" a company. I don't know what to call it. It sounds like it is just the name of the supplement, yet it seems to be the company name behind it all is well.

Conclusion - Worth a Try or Not?

So should you give Keto Blast a try?

Well, you are more than welcome to do whatever you want, but I sure as heck am not going to be recommending this supplement to anyone.

While BHB has been shown to be beneficial when trying to get into a state of ketosis, we have no idea how much BHB this supplement has and there are just way too many red flags for me to fully trust the company producing this supplement.

My advice: Buy another supplement with BHB that actually has a good track record. There are probably plenty of them available on Amazon.com.

I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful. Please leave any comments or questions down below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂

Internal 911 scam

Is Internal 911 a Scam Supplement or Does It Work? – Review

Internal 911 is a colon cleansing/detoxification supplement sold by Phytage Labs… But is it any good and is it worth the money?

Is it possible that Internal 911 is just another scam that isn’t going to do anything for you?

In this review I’ll be answering all you need to know…

They call it the “emergency flush system” and say that it has “triple action” colon cleansing power to scrape the walls of your colon clean from waste and debris, but of course you can’t always believe what you hear or read online.

There is a good chance you came across this video presentation for this product…

video presentation

And if you didn’t that is okay. Basically the video presentation made Internal 911 sound like the greatest thing ever and to be honest, it raised my suspicion because it sounded too good to be true… a bit scammy.

The purpose of Internal 911 is to clean your colon, which is something that is often overlooked and is and underlying problem to many different health problems.

On the bottle of Internal 911 it says that it has the benefits of…

  • Detoxification
  • Energy restoration
  • Improved skin

And to be honest this is far from an exaggeration. In fact, colon cleansing can be incredibly important and can provide a heck of a lot more benefits than just that.

Why Is This Important?

The colon is the large intestine, which has the function of absorbing water, minerals, vitamins etc.

Over time the walls of the colon can become encrusted with waste, which can seriously hinder nutrient absorption and also slow down digestion. This can lead to a lack of nutrients as well as energy, which can lead to a number of other problems.

There are a lot of people out there that probably feel sluggish and unhealthy throughout the day, thinking that they are just getting old, when in reality much of this problem can be attributed to an unclean colon.

So yes, keeping your colon clean can be incredibly important, and this is more true when you get older and your body starts to slow down.

But anyways…. Yeah it is important, but is Internal 911 actually a good supplement to do the job? Let’s find out…

Internal 911 Review

  • Name: Internal 911
  • Product Type: Natural cleansing/detox supplement
  • Manufacturer: Phytage Labs
  • Recommended?: Somewhat, more on this
  • Where to Buy: Official Website Here

As you already know, Internal 911 is a cleansing/detoxification supplement that is sold by Phytage Labs, who I am familiar with because I have also reviewed other products by them such as Eagle Eye 911 and Tinnitus 911. All of their products are 100% natural, so I knew what to expect when I first started looking into this one.

Overall Internal 911 isn’t that bad and definitely does have potential to get the job done, but I do question its effectiveness and you will see why.

Do The Ingredients Actually Work?

Internal 911 Ingredients

Psyllium – This is a great source of soluble fiber, which is the type of fiber that absorbes water and turns into a soft gel-like substance when doing so. It helps prevent diarrhea and keeps stools soft. It is widely used for cleansing the colon and is also considered a laxative, which can help with constipation.

It’s also worth noting that this might be one of the most safe oral laxatives out there.

Black Walnut – The outer covering of the nut from black walnut trees are used to treat parasitic worm infections. This has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years and besides helping get rid of parasitic infections that could be sucking prescious nutrition out of your digestion, it is also a well known laxative.

According to ParasiteTesting.com, black walnut husk helps to oxygenate your blood which then helps kill off parasites.

Bentonite Clay – This is another commonly found ingredient in cleans and detox products and is also used for skin care among other things. The reason it is so good for cleaning/detoxing is because it absorbs toxins, heavy metals, impurities, etc and makes it easy for your body to get rid of them.

According to some sources it can also help restore a healthy balance of bacteria in your guy, killing off bad baceria and promoting the growth of good bacteria.

I know it may sound weird, and maybe even harmful, to eat clay, but the amount included in this supplement is nothing to worry about by any means.

Oat Bran – Oat bran is another good healthy source of soluble fiber, which is good for restoring healthy bowel movements, which is the reason you may have seen it included in many cleanse/detox supplements out there. It is made from the inner husk part of whole oat grains. In addition to this it is also a good source of antioxidants, which are good for overall health in general.

Apple PectinPectin is a type of soluble fiber that is found in fruits, and in this particular case it comes from apples. Yet another good source of soluble fiber to help soften stools if constipated and absorb water if you have diarrhea.

And then some more ingredients, some of which I’m sure you have heard of before, that are included in Internal 911 are…

  • Flaxseed
  • Prune
  • Aloe Vera
  • L. Acidophilus
  • Glucomannan Powder

Will This Formula Actually Work?

There is no doubt that these ingredients are good for digestion and could help with a number of problems. Pretty much no matter what type of problem you are expriencing, these could help restore normal bowel movements as well as cleanse your colon even if you are having normal bowel movements.

They are pretty well known to help cleanse and support health digestion.

HOWEVER, there really isn’t that much to this supplement. The entire blend consists of 1500mg.

If you take an apple, for example, 1 cup of sliced apple contains about 654mg of pectin according to LiveStrong.com. And I’m sure many of you reading this already consume apples on a regular basis and get much more pectin than this supplement will provide you with.

That said, you are getting psyllium, black walnut, bentonite clay and oat bran which most people don’t consume on a daily basis, and maybe have never even had. 

So there is definitely some potential benefit from taking this, but the amount it will help is questionable.

*It’s also worth mentioning that the wide variety of ingredients here has the potential to work from a number of different angles.

Side Effects

One of the great things about a natural supplement such as this is that there are no side effects that you have to worry about. None of the ingredients are dosed too high and you should have no problem.

But of course it is always recommended that you consult with a doctor first.

The Cost

The price you pay per bottle depends on how many bottles you purchase, as you can see…

  • 1 bottle – $69.95
  • 2 bottles – $59.95/bottle
  • 4 bottles – $49.95/bottle
  • 6 bottles – $39.95/bottle

How long do you have to take it?

They say that you should take this supplement for at least 7 days to start noticing positive effects. However, this is the type of supplement you might want to take for months on months at a time.

It all depends on the person. Some people may need to be pretty much constantly cleansing/detoxing their body to help keep in tip top shape, while others’ bodies may do the job perfectly fine on their own.

What I Like/ Don’t Like About It

What I Like

  • Natural
  • No Side effects
  • Wide variety of ingredients; can help from many angles
  • Tackles an important problem that most people don’t know they have (an unclean colon)

What I Don’t Like

  • Amount of each specific ingredient is not listed
  • Dose is small per serving
  • Expensive

Conclusion – Worth The Price or Not?

Well first off, Internal 911 is definitely not a scam. The marketing around this product may be a little bit over-hyped, but I don’t see any reason to call it a scam. The ingredients that it includes are natural, known to work and won’t give you any bad side effects.

But is it worth buying? This is an entirely different questions and the answer is that… Well… It might be.

The thing about cleansing your colon and detoxification is that it is hard to know when it needs done. You might be feeling sluggish because you need a cleanse/detox or you might be feeling sluggish because of allergies or something like that. It is hard to say for certain, but it could very well be worth a try.

I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful at the very least. If interested, you can purchase Internal 911 on the official website here

Gluco Type 2 Scam

Is Gluco Type 2 a Scam Supplement? – Read Before Buying!

Gluco Type 2 is a natural supplement that can supposedly reverse your type 2 diabetes in no time… But can it really? Or is it possible that Gluco Type 2 is just another scam that is going to be a waste of your money?

I know that there are a lot of people promoting this as the greatest supplement ever for diabetes, but you can’t always trust what you hear. Sure, it sounds great that “you can reverse your type II diabetes in less than 15 days”…statement…and if this is actually true then that is great, but what if it isn’t true?

I have exposed many scam supplements before in the past and, honestly, this one seems to be very scammy, which is why I decided to dig a little deeper and write this review.

If you are thinking about possibly buying into this, you are definitely going to want to read this over first. I will be going over what exactly Gluco Type 2 is, whether or not the ingredients work, complaints and more.

But first let’s talk about the ridiculous video presentation and some of the red flags that probably made you suspicious of this all…

Sounds Good… But There Are Lots of Red Flags!

Gluco Type 2 Video

You probably came across the video which you can see a screenshot of above. The video presentation makes this supplement sound a little bit too good to be true. And we all know what they say about things that sound too good to be true…. They probably aren’t true!

And there are tons of red flags…

Red Flag #1 – “Big Pharma, Big Medicine, and even Big Governement have been keeping all of this hidden from you”

We are told that “big Pharma” has been stealing from us and that this is the biggest theft in the history of mankind…

screenshot

We are also told that they have been bribing doctors to prescribe expensive medications that don’t actually make you better, but rather make you more sick so that they can further profit from you.

Now I know it is very true that the pharmaceutical industry has a somewhat “less than ethical” reputation at times, but the problem here is that they just want to make the pharmaceutical industry look bad and don’t really offer any proof to back up these claims.

And… I have heard similar claims with many scammy supplements I have reviewed in the past, such as with Diabetes Destroyer for example.

Red Flag #2 – The Real Cause of Your Type II Diabetes Has Nothing to Do With The Foods You Eat..

What the heck are they talking about here?

This is a really dumb statement and simply not true. Type II diabetes has a lot to do with what you eat and this is pretty well proven with science, even by plenty of independent studies that have not been funded by large pharmaceutical companies.

Red Flag #3 – Michael Bradford Doesn’t Exist

Michael Bradford is the spokesperson in the video. He claims that his wife had diabetes very bad and he was the one that finally figured out this “miracle” treatment.

He claims that the pharmaceutical industry hates him because he is actually trying to help people and that this means less money for them.

HOWEVER, this guy is completely fake. When I was doing my research I looked at the disclaimer and found that they state “Michael Bradford is a pen name”…

disclaimer

Red Flag #4 – Fake Testimonials

Also, on the checkout page they show you some testimonials from people who have supposedly been taking this supplement and getting really good results. HOWEVER, I did a reverse Google image search of one of these testimonials and found that the picture is actually a fake…

fake testimonialIt’s a stock photo that anyone can purchase and use online as they wish.

More Red Flags

I’m not going to go over every single red flag but just know that there are plenty of more.

But anyways… Enough about the sales pitch that is full of lies in the misleading information. Let’s talk about the actual product. Does it work?

Let’s find out…

What Is Gluco Type 2?

  • Supplement Name: Gluco Type 2
  • Type: Diabetes treatment
  • Manufacturer: Phytage Labs
  • Cost: Varies
  • Where to Buy: Official Website Here

Gluco Type 2 is a 100% natural diabetes treatment supplement created by Phytage Labs, who is the company also behind Tinnitus 911 and Eagle Eye 911, which are natural supplements for tinnitus and vision that I am familiar with.

Overall the supplement really isn’t as bad as you would imagine based on the very scammy sales pitch, but it definitely isn’t as good as you are led to believe either. That said, it does have some potential to lower blood sugar levels and help with diabetes, naturally of course.

Ingredients

The supplement consists of 20 ingredients as you can see below. And don’t worry if you can’t read this, I know it is small print. I will be going over what you need to know below.

Gluco Type 2 Ingredients

Well… I’m not going to go over every single ingredient, because there are a lot (20 in total), but it will go over some of the more main ingredients that you might not know about…

  • Banaba
    • This herbal remedy can help with your heart health, diabetes, weigh loss and more. It contains corosolic acid, which is the substance that is largely thought to be responsible for its blood sugar-lowering abilities and is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
    • Has been used as a folk medicine for high blood sugar for years.
  • Guggul
    • This has been used as a traditional medicine dating back at least to 1700 BC and is used for a number of reasons, such as to treat high cholesterol, arthritis, skin problems and according to some sources has shown anti-diabetic effects. You might know this particular group of plants better by the names Commiphora and Boswellia, both of which fall under the name “guggel”.
    • A 2009 study published in Food and Chemical Toxicology journal found that a compound in guggul can inhibit 3T3-L1 preadipocytes differentiation, which suggests it can help cure type 2 diabetes.
  • Bitter Melon
    • Another herbal remedy for many things, if you Google the benefits of bitter melon you will find that it is used to treat diabetes at the top of the list. And there is some proof that it can help.
    • One study from the Journal of Ethnopharmacology tested the antidiabetic effects of bitter melon compared to metformin, which is a prescription diabetes medication. In this study some diabetic patients took metformin and others took either 500mg or 1000mg of bitter melon. The results where that it can help lower blood sugar levels but it wasn’t as effective as the prescription drug.
  • Gymnema Sylvestre
    • Some of the said benefits of this herb include that it may reduce bad cholesterol, lower blood sugar, reduce heart disease risk and aid in weight loss.
    • A 2010 study from the Journal of Dietary Supplements found that GS is beneficial and did lead to lower blood sugar levels among other good things. In this study patients supplemented 500mg of the herb per day for 3 months.
  • Licorice
    • Licorice is commonly used as a treatment for digestive issues and is said to have powerful anti-inflammatory and immune system boosting benefits.
    • According to the American Nutrition Association, licorice also has antidiabetic effects and this is probably due to substances it contains called amorfrutins.
  • Cinnamon Bark
    • Cinnamon has shown some ability to lower blood sugar but some studies have shown no such ability. That said, it does contain a compound that is thought to act like insulin, which would make sense that it can at least help lower blood sugar levels.
  • Yarrow Flowers
    • Some of the traditional uses of these flowers are to help with gastrointestinal problems, reduce fevers, improve circulation and more. They are often used to make herbal tea.
    • Some information suggests it may help with diabetes but I couldn’t find any good studies to reference.
  • Juniper Berries
    • These are used for everything from pain treatment to treating UTI’s, and of course diabetes.
    • One study conducted on diabetic rats showed significant decreases in blood sugar levels within 24 days, although the dosage was quite high.

And there are also a lot of well known ingredients such as vitamin C, vitamin E, magnesium, biotin, zinc, manganese and more.

Potential? Yes… But….

So obviously this supplement does have potential. Many of the ingredients are claimed to have antidiabetic effects, and many of them have even been proven to have such effects in scientific studies.

HOWEVER, there is definitely a lack of evidence and another problem is that most of the ingredients are dosed pretty low. Most of the “unusual” ingredients are dosed at around 10 to 50 mg, which really isn’t all that much when you look at how much people were taking in the studies I found.

Side Effects

One of the good things is that there are not any side effects you have to worry about.

I’m sure there might be a few people that experience some minor adverse side effects, but generally speaking all of these natural ingredients shouldn’t pose any threat. That said, of course it is always recommended to consult with a doctor before taking supplements.

The Cost

The cost depends on how many bottles you buy. The best price, the most bang for your buck, is the 4 bottle option in which you get each bottle at $49.95…

  • 1 bottle – $69.95
  • 2 bottles – $59.95 each
  • 4 bottles – $49.95 each

But is just 1 bottle enought?

This is a hard question to answer, but there’s a good chance it won’t be. As I’ve already went over, the studies on these ingredients are limited but many of the ones that are out there are often conducted for longer than one month.

It’s also worth mentioning that there is a 90 day moneyback guarantee…money-back guarantee

What I Like and Don’t Like

What I Like

  • Consists of 100% natural ingredients
  • Many ingredients that can potentially attack the problem from many angles
  • No side effects

What I Don’t Like

  • Misleading and deceptive marketing (lots of lies that I exposed)
  • Low doses for many of the ingredients

Final verdict – Scam or Worth a Try?

I would not consider Gluco Type 2 a scam. When I first started looking into this supplement I was thinking it probably was because of the absolutely ridiculous video presentation, however it is not.

It definitely does have some potential to treat type 2 diabetes although it is not the miracle worker it is claimed to be.

Will it work for you? The best answer I can give for that is that “it could help”, but definitely is not guaranteed.

Anyways… I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful. Hopefully this gave you a better idea of what you are looking at here. If you do want to give this supplement to try you can purchase Gluco Type 2 on the official website here.

Fungus Clear scam

Fungus Clear – Scam Supplement by NaturePure? [Read Before Buying!]

Fungus Clear it is said to be a 100% natural and healthy supplement that can clear up your fungal infection in no time, but can it really?

Is this product really as good as people are claiming it is? Or could this be another scam that is just going to be a waste of your money?

I have reviewed quite a few antifungal products over the years and there have been many “cure all” products I have come across that simply do not work as they are said to, and have led to very disappointed customers. So wondering if a product like this actually works is something that everyone should do. 

I’m glad you decided to do a little bit of extra research on this and end up landing upon my review here. In this review I’ll be going over what exactly Fungus Clear is, how it works, whether or not it has proven ingredients, concerns and more.

What Is Fungus Clear by NutraPure?

Well obviously you already know that it is a supplement which can supposedly clear up fungal infections, such as toenail fungus. However, it tackles this problem a little bit different than most other antifungal products out on the market.

Fungus Clear is what you call a probiotic and its goal is to help strengthen the immune system so that your body can better fight off infection itself. In addition it is also said to increase skin health, brain health and more. 

What is a probiotic?

A probiotic is actually a supplement that you take where you ingest bacteria. Yes, you heard me correctly, you ingest bacteria.

It may sound like something that you wouldn’t want to do, but has actually been proven to be extremely beneficial. The importance of bacteria in our guts plays a big role in our overall health. Humans are not animals that simply live completely by themselves. We all have an entire biome of different bacteria living inside of us at all times, helping us stay healthy and stay alive. 

Why is this important?

Now of course not all bacteria is good. You aren’t going to want to ingest something like E. coli, because that could be extremely harmful and could even potentially lead to death.

There are certain bacteria that are good for us and that we live in symbiosis with… And it is these bacteria that are included in probiotics.

Ingredients

It’s not like Fungus Clear is going to introduce a bunch of strange and unusual bacteria into your body. It just provides you with more of the bacteria that you need, which you should already have living inside your gut right now.

The problem that our modern society has is that you don’t get nearly enough of the bacteria needed from food sources, since much of the food that people eat nowadays is highly processed and unnatural. This is why it is important for some people to take probiotics so that they can get their healthy bacteria levels up to where they should be.

The main ingredients, which are bacteria, included in Fungus Clear are…

  • Bacillus Subtilis
    • This is a bacteria that is often found in probiotics due to it’s known health benefits. It is found in the soil and also in the guts of animals, such as humans. It can help with a number of things by producing proteins, enzymes, antimicrobial compounds, vitamins and more. 
    • A 2017 study published in the Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy journal found that it has significant ability to kill off the influenza virus.
  • Bifidobacterium Breve
    • This bacteria is probably most well known for it’s benefits as a probiotic for young children, although it is still useful for adults. It is said to be able to improve digestion, reduce inflammation and more.
    • A 2016 study from PLOS One journal found that in the early stages of life supplementing Bifidobacterium Breve improves the developement of mucosal immunity.
  • Bifidobacterium Longum
    • Another important bateria, this one is common in infants that are breast fed, as they should be. It is important in the early stages of life and has shown the potential to help with a number of things, such as immunity against infections, digestive issues, IBS and more.
  • Lactobacillus Acidophilus
    • This bacteria is responsible for producing the enzyme called lactase, which breaks down lactose in our digestive systems. It is extremely important, but not just for that. It also may reduce cholesterol, reduce the risk of diarrhea, stop vaginal infections, reduce the risk of viral infections like the flu, and more.
  • Lactobacillus Casei
    • Probiotics with Lactobacillus Casei are often consumed for treatement of diarrhea, such as infectious diarrhea, traveler’s diarrhea and others. But it is much more than just that. It can also increases antibiotic activity, helps relieve stress, and of course helps boost immuity.
    • A 2013 study published in Immunopharmacology and Immunotoxicology showed that it can improve the immune system’s defense by helping increase the activity of the body’s T cells, natural killer cells and macrophages, all of which play a big role in immune health and help kill of invaders, such as harmful viruses and bacteria.
  • Lactobacillus Plantarum
    • This is commonly found in fermented food and has numerous benefits, among which some include antioxidant, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antiproliferative and antidiabetic properties.
  • Lactobacillus Rhamnosus
    • Lactobacillus rhamnosus has been found to benefit overall digestive health, help stimulat the immune system and prevent allergic reactions among other things.
    • A 2013 study from Digestive Diseases and Sciences found that it can restore normal gut health and help with mucosal immune responses.

Why This Might Be a Good Choice

One of the problems with probiotics is that they simply do not work. The reason that many do not work is because the acid in our stomachs kills them before they ever have a chance to be of any help.

This is why you often see probiotics being sold in yogurt drinks or mixed in with other dairy products. This is because dairy products help neutralize stomach acid so that the probiotics can make their way into the intestines and do their work.

Now Fungus Clear is just being sold in capsule form, with no dairy mixture to neutralize stomach acid. HOWEVER, the probiotics that are included in this supplement, which mostly consist of lactobacillus and bifidobacteria types, are considered “highly resistant” and are able to survive stomach acid, so this is not a problem.

Concerns

That said, I do have some concerns.

Firstly, the NutraPure company, which this supplement is made by, I really can’t find much information on. Of course this does not mean it is a scam or anything like that, but it is a bit concerning.

It does seem that this company sells CBD oil products and is pretty popular with that, but there just isn’t all that much information out there for me to look into.

Also, this Fungus Clear is marketed in a rather “shady” way. Not only are the claims about this product often blown out of proportion, but I also found that many people promoting it are now directing people to purchase Fungus Hack instead. As I was doing my research I clicked on many links to try to purchase Fungus Clear and was instead directed to purchase this other Fungus Hack product.

Final Verdict – Scam or Legit?

Although I do still have some concerns, I do not consider this product a scam and overall it seems to be pretty good. I like the approach that this takes to clearing up fungal infections. Most supplements on the market include a concoction of herbs to strengthen the immune system while this one focuses on strengthening the gut flora via probiotics, which can then boost your immune system.

Is it definitely going to cure your case of fungus? No, there is not any guarantee. However, it definitely “could” help. It does have potential.

But anyways… I hope you enjoyed my honest review and found it helpful. Hopefully now you will be able to make a more informed and better decision when it comes to purchasing this product, if you can even find anywhere to purchase it.

    Is Eagle Eye 911 a Scam

    Is Eagle Eye 911 a Scam Supplement? – Read Before Buying!

    Can Eagle Eye 911 really improve your eyesight or is this just another scam supplement that is going to be a waste of your money?

    That is a big question and it is one that you should definitely be asking yourself. After all, there are plenty of “less than ethical” supplements out there that do not do what they’re supposed to, and of course you don’t want to waste your money on something like this.

    And… I’m probably not the only one that came across the video presentation for this supplement and thought it sounded a bit “scammy”.

    In this review I’ll be going over what Eagle Eye 911 is, the ingredients and whether or not they actually work, some concerns I have, complaints and more.

    But before we get into all of that, let’s first talk about the sales pitch, which is a bit ridiculous in my opinion.

    The Sales Pitch

    Maybe you have seen it or maybe you haven’t, but there is a video presentation out there that I came across which looks like this…

    video presentation

    And as you can see this video is titled  “never worry about your eyesight again… guaranteed”.

    Really? You’re going to guarantee that whoever takes this supplement will “never” have to worry about their eyesight again. That is quite a bold to claim to make, and honestly it sounds a bit” scammy”.

    The spokesperson in the video, who says his name is Dr. Steve Klayman, claims to be a renowned health care practitioner and says that they have put together some new “secret formula” to improving eyesight.

    This formula is supposedly so good that it “can give you twice the protection of typical vision supplements” and it is “59 times more vision defense than a best-selling multivitamin”. HOWEVER, these statements are misleading as you will see soon.

    The video goes on and on, for what feels like forever, and mostly just repeats the same things over and over again. It was pretty painful to sit through and if you did end up making it through the entire video you should give yourself a pat on the back.

    It’s All About Lutein

    Most of the focus of the video presentation is on lutein, which is found in green leafy vegetables and is claimed to protect retinal cells from damaging blue light.

    There is some talk about other ingredients that are included in this supplement, but the main focus is on lutein… And supposedly this supplement has some “special” form of lutein.

    Lots of Talk About How Other Vitamins/Supplements Aren’t Any Good

    There it is also a lot of talk about how other multivitamins out there on the market have a cheaper form of lutein which does not absorb well and will not work.

    The spokesperson compares it to some random multivitamin and says that Eagle Eye 911 can give you 59 times more eye protecting power, yet this claim is completely unsubstantiated.

    Red Flags!:

    You are probably reading my review now because you want the truth and you were suspicious that this might be a scam yourself. The reason for this is probably because there are many red flags that make this seem a bit untrustworthy.

    Overall it just seems a little bit too good to be true, does it not? And we all know what they say about things that sound too good to be true.

    Also, there are some red flags that you probably are not aware of.

    For example, I did a little research into this “Steve Klayman” guy and I am pretty certain that he is a FAKE. There have been more than one picture shown of this guy in different promotional material and the problem is that they show 2 totally different people…Eagle Eye 911 Steve KlaymanNow I’ve come across this sort of thing many times in the past when reviewing potential scam supplements. HOWEVER, this still could potentially be a real doctor. I understand that some people don’t like putting images of themselves all over the Internet, so the image could be a fake for privacy reasons.

    But anyways… Enough about the sales pitch… Let’s talk about the actual product and whether or not it is any good…

    Eagle Eye 911 Review

    • Type: Vision supplement
    • Manufacturer: Phytage Labs
    • Cost: Varies
    • Recommended?: Somewhat, but it is no as good as they lead you to believe
    • Where to Buy: Click Here

    Overview:

    Eagle Eye 911 is a natural eye support supplement that is manufactured by company called Phytage Labs, which doesn’t exactly have the best reputation.

    Although there are many “scammy” things going on here, such as the ridiculous sales pitch, overall the supplement does seem to be something that has potential. It contains proven ingredients, which I will go over now…. and this is the most important thing.

    Ingredients

    eagle eye 911 ingredients

    If you can’t read that label, that’s fine, I will go over the ingredients you need to know about, the more important ones…

    1) Lutein

    Lutein is a cartenoid that has been very well proven to benefit eye health. It is also a powerful antioxidant that is located in the eye, so of course it is going to be important for eye health, right?

    Eagle Eye 911 provides 20mg of a “special, patented, fully absorbable form of lutein”. 20mg is a good dose, so this is nice to see. HOWEVER, there was no information I could find about it being a “special” form of lutein that is “patented”. I’m not sure how true this statement actually is.

    But anyways… Yes, lutein is something that benefits that eyes and this is not just some myth.

    The National Eye Institute states that people who supplement lutein are less likely to develop AMD (age-related macular degeneration), which is a major cause of vision loss. This was concluded after an indepth study was conducted by the National Institutes of Health in 2001.

    It has also been shown to reduce the risk of cataracts.

    2) Bilberry Extract

    There is a legend that says airplane pilots in the British Royal Air Force bombed an enemy during WWII with incredible accuracy after eating bilberry jam. They claim their night vision was improved.

    This claim has been later proven by science. It can help increase your ability to see at night and holds some powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which is always a good thing.

    It has also been shown to reduce eye fatige by a 2015 study published in The Journal of Nutrition, Health, and Aging.

    3) Grape Seeds

    According to WebMD, grape seed extract can help with eye disease that is related to diabetes.

    In a 2011 study published in Molecular Vision, grape seed extract was found to protect the epithelial cells on the lenses of our eyes from oxidative stress and damage. Because of this researchers concluded that it might be a potential effective treatment against the development of cataracs.

    4) Vitamin A

    Vitamin A is an antioxidant vitamin that is pretty well known to help with eye health. This is what carrots and sweet potatoes have a lot of. And you have probably heard that they are good for your eyes at least once before.

    One of the ways that it helps is by protecting the surface of the eye effectively keep away harmful things such as bactaria, viruses, etc. It has also been shown to be effective at reducing inflammation in the eye, which can cause wide array of problems.

    5) Taurine

    Taurine is extremely important for our vision. In fact, it necessary for the chemical reactions that produce our vision, which is why a deficiency in this amino acid is often associated with retinal decline.

    Taurin is also a good antixodiant that helps protect the ocular tissue from damage done by free radicals.

    6) Zinc

    Zinc helps bring up vitamin A from the liver to the retina, which then helps to protect the eye. A deficiency in this mineral can lead to cataracts, cloudy vision, poor night vision and so on.

    Taking  zinc supplements has been shown to slow the progression of age-related macular degeneration, which as I mentioned above is a common problem for many people as they age.

     

    So Do They Work?

    There is no doubting the fact that this concoction of natural ingredients definitely has potential to improve vision.

    Now is it going to be a guarantee that your vision improves upon taking this? Absolutely not. I know that they say you will “never have to worry about your eyesight again… Guaranteed”, but this is not true.

    Hopefully it will work for you, but there is definitely not a guarantee.

    Concerns… The Company Behind It

    The company behind this product is Phytage Labs, which as I mentioned earlier doesn’t exactly have a very good reputation.

    I wasn’t able to find any good reviews from people complaining about Eagle Eye 911, however you can see below that another one of their popular products, Tinnitus 911, isn’t exactly very well liked…

    BBB website

    I’m very familiar with the product this guy is talking about because I have reviewed it. It gets a heck of a lot of complaints and the main problem that it has is MISLEADING ADVERTISING.

    The main reason that Phytage Labs gets a fair amount of negative reviews (for various products) is from the misleading advertising. That said, if you actually know what you’re getting and don’t buy into the over-hyped sales pitch, then you probably won’t be too disappointed.

    The Cost

    The cost depends on how many bottles you purchase. The more you purchased the last you have to pay per bottle…

    • 1 bottle for $69.95
    • 2 bottles for $59.95/bottle
    • 4 bottles for $49.95 per bottle

    Alternative Supplements

    You can find some cheaper alternatives on Amazon but this is not as overpriced as I was thinking at first.

    A lot of good alternative products out there are right around the same price.

    It’s also worth mentioning that Phytage Labs is offering a 90 day money-back guarantee on Eagle Eye 911money-back guaranteeI have no idea the difficulty of actually getting your money back if you try, but it is still reassuring just knowing that they have something like this in place.

    Final Verdict – Scam or Not?

    I would not call Eagle Eye 911 a scam. In fact, as I’ve mentioned, I do think this supplement has the potential to improve vision. Many of the ingredients are well proven to possess vision-improving properties.

    I just don’t get why they can’t promote it anymore straightforward and honest way, instead of the over-the-top sales pitch.

    Overall this supplement really doesn’t look too bad. When I first came across this product I thought it was going to be a complete scam, but after digging a little deeper I’ve changed my opinion.

    If you want to you can purchase Eagle Eye 911 on the official website here.

    But anyways… I hope I’ve given you a more realistic look into this supplement so that you can make a more informed decision.

    Myco Ultra Scam

    Myco Ultra – Scam Supplement or Does It Work?

    Is Myco Ultra really as good as people are saying it is? Or is this just another scam supplement that is going to be a waste of your money?

    In this review I'll be going over what you need to know before buying this. I'm glad you took the time to do a little extra research. I'll be going over what exactly this supplement is, the ingredients, whether or not there is any proof that it actually works, what other people are saying about it, complaints and more.

    They claim it is the "#1 immunity mushroom supplement" on the market, but of course who knows how true a statement like this actually is. Personally I don't believe this statement because this supplement isn't even all that popular.

    But anyways... Myco Ultra is claimed to…

    • Boost your immune system
    • Have life span extending properties
    • Have ingredients backed by clinical studies

    The main focus of this supplement is to improve your immune health.

    This is important because the immune system is your body's defense against invaders.... invaders like bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungus and anything that can potentially make you sick. 

    Many people live a lower level of life for years due to infections they don't even know they have.

    Our immune systems are working around the clock, day and night, to keep us healthy and it is important for us to help them do their jobs, which you can do by eating healthy and staying fit.

    So basically Myco Ultra is supposed to keep you feeling healthy and good, and they claim that people taking it have experienced increased energy and just an overall better feeling throughout the day.

    But this is just what they tell you, and as you probably know you can't always trust what you hear from supplement companies. After all, they are trying to sell their supplements so of course they're going to mostly just talk about all the good things.

    Does it REALLY work? Let's find out…

    Myco Ultra Review

    • Name: Myco Ultra
    • Type: Immune support supplement
    • Ingredients: Mushroom blend
    • Price: Varies depending on amount purchased
    • Legit?: Yes

    Myco Ultra is an immune boosting supplement that consists of 8 different ingredients, all of which are mushrooms.

    Now when most people think of giving their immune system a boost, they usually don't think of mushrooms. They usually think of maybe eating a few extra oranges to get more vitamin C or something along those lines. That said, there is actually quite a bit of scientific evidence showing that certain mushrooms can be effective at giving your immune system the boost it might need.

    In the Western world this isn't all that well known, but consuming mushrooms as a traditional Chinese medicine has been around for thousands of years.

    To be completely honest, when I first came across this supplement I was thinking it was probably going to be another over-hyped scam, but I actually think it could actually be pretty good for some people with weakened immune systems.

    The 8 Ingredients

    You can take a look at the label for Myco Ultra here... 

    Myco Ultra Label

    Now I don't know if you can read that, and if you can't it is okay. I will go over each ingredient.

    With each capsule that you take you get a 700 mg blend of the following 8 mushrooms…

    • Reishi
      • This has been shown to affect the genes of white blood cells,  which play a huge role in our immune system. They are what devour invaders that enter our bodies.
      • Some research, such as as study published in Immunological Investigations, has shown that reishi can increase levels of Natural Killer white blood cells, which is good.
    • Maitake
    • Agaricus blazei
      • This mushroom is native to Brazil but is even used in as far as Japan for medicinal purposes.
      • It has been shown to have medicinal effects on tumors, infections, allergies and inflammation in a 2011 study.
    • Cordyceps sinensis P.E.
      • This may sound gross, but Cordyceps is actually a fungus/mushroom that lives on caterpillars in the high mountains of China... However, most supplements grow this in laboratories.
      • According to WebMD, it "might" stimulate cells and chemicals that can boost the immune system, although there is no hard evidence of such.
    • Lion's mane extract
      • There are many benefits of supplementing Lion's Mane, such as less stress and anxiety, reduced risk of heart disease, helps with diabetes, and even improved immunity against diseases as deadly as cancer.
      • This 2011 study from Food & Function found that Lion's mane can increase the death rate of cancer cells, in particular leukemia cancer cells.
    • Pleurotus eryngii (King Trumpet)
      • This mushroom is native to the Mediterranean area, but is also cultivated in other parts of the world. An amino acid that it has named ergothioneine is what is responsible for much of its antioxidant activity, which helps keep disease away.
      • This also has what are called statins, which are compounds that help fight off diseases.
    • Antrodia camphorate
      • Antrodia camphorate, or AC for short, is a fungus that is native to Taiwan and grows inside the trunk of a tree.  Use of this for medicinal purposes dates back many years.
      • It has been shown to inhibit cancer cell proliferation, provides a good source of antioxidants that can protect against aging and more.
    • Turkey tail mushroom powder
      • This immune boosting mushroom has lots of antioxidants and contains polysaccharopeptides, which can really help give your immune system a boost.
      • Has been shown to possibly improve immune response against cancer cells.

    Mushrooms like these are a great source of beta-glucans, which have been shown to boost the immune system and help fight off diseases and illness in many studies.

    Any Side Effects?

    They state that there are no side effects that have been observed.

    Now of course there are probably some potential side effects, because it seems like there is always at least someone that has a negative reaction to just about anything, but generally speaking there are not any that you have to worry about.

    I don't know the amounts of each ingredient but there can't be that much because the entire mix is only 750mg.

    This is one of the big upsides to taking a natural health supplement such as this… No side effects.

    The Cost

    Try not to jump out of your seat, because the price is a bit high.

    You can purchase one bottle for $60, two bottles for $109.95, or 4 bottles for $173.

    Now of course the 4 bottle deal is the best, because you get the most for your money's worth, but that is also a good chunk of money to spend all at once.

    price

    When I first saw the price I thought it was pretty darn high, but after looking around at other similar products, such as those on Amazon, I found that it really isn't too bad.

    Slightly Cheaper Alternative:

    However, if you do want a slightly cheaper alternative then another good choice is Host Defense on Amazon. It has most of the same ingredients plus some, and sells for around $50 for a 30 day supply.

    What I Like/ Don't Like

    What I Like

    • Variety of different mushrooms in the mix which can help boost your immune system from different angles
    • Good amount of science to back up the claims that it works
    • Doesn't give you bad breath like other mushroom supplements (so they say)

    What I Don't Like

    • A bit pricey (but it seems like other alternatives are as well)
    • The advertising for this supplement is a bit over-the-top (like how they say Big Pharma is trying to cover up the truth)

    What Users Are Saying About It

    Unfortunately I wasn't able to find much in the way of reviews for Myco Ultra from people who have actually used it, however I was able to find quite a bit of good reviews from similar supplements out there.

    Mushroom blends like this seem to be pretty good at giving your immune system a little natural boost. In fact, I'm thinking about buying some to keep on hand when I feel sickness coming on.

    Final Verdict - Scam or Not?

    As I mentioned earlier, when I first came across this supplement I thought it was just going to be another over-priced scam. However, I was pleasantly surprised after looking into it further.

    This is not a scam as far as I see and very well could help give your immune system the boost you have been looking for.

    Will it work for everyone? No. But could it work for you? Yes.

    Anyways... I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful. Please leave any comments or questions down below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
