MiracleBurn is yet another diet pill that claims to contain all sorts of ingredients helpful for weight loss, but fails to list how much of those ingredients are contained in each serving. Without proper nutritional information about MiracleBurn diet pills it is more difficult to make an informed decision about the effectiveness of this product. However, my past experience with diet pills suggests that when a company isn’t forthcoming about the ingredients, or amounts of ingredients, it’s usually because the product is sub-standard.

To add insult to injury there is also a blatant absence of any clinical trials that have been done with MiracleBurn that supports its weight loss claims. In order to learn more about the possible effectiveness of MiracleBurn as a diet pill the company expects you to do your own digging, so I have.

Review of MiracleBurn Ingredients

On the official website, the ingredients for MiracleBurn are listed (without amounts) as: Hoodia, Advantra-Z®, Glucomannan, Yerba Mate, GTF Chromium, Iodine, White Willow Bark, and L-Carnitine. 

  • Hoodia – Hoodia, an herbal diet supplement that comes from an Africal cactus, is a commonly used diet pill ingredient, either on its own or in combination with other herbal products. Despite Hoodia's popularity, there is still little evidence supporting that Hoodia is an effective appetite suppressant.
  • Advantra-Z – Advantra-Z is a patented form of Bitter Orange Extract. Advantra-Z contains synephrine, which is similar to ephedrine that raises blood pressure, heart rate and metabolism, but without ill side-effects. Although there are clinical studies supporting that bitter orange extract (Advantra-Z) increases thermogenesis (fat burning), these studies have also found that thermogenic effects can only be attained by taking high dosages that also result in adverse side-effects. Although MiracleBurn does not disclose how much Advantra-Z it contains, you can be guaranteed it is not in quantities large enough to promote fat burning or weight loss.
  • Glucomannan – Glucomannan is a soluble fiber that absorbs water and forms a gel-like mass. The expansion of glucomannan in the stomach may cause feelings of satiety (fullness) thereby reducing the amount of food one eats. A study conducted in 2005 states that “At doses of 2-4 g per day, GM (glucomannan) was well-tolerated and resulted in significant weight loss in overweight and obese individuals.” (Altern Ther Health Med. 2005 Nov-Dec;11(6):30-4)Again, because MiracleBurn’s manufacturer does not list the amount of Glucomannan used it is impossible to know if this ingredient is present in amounts that would aid weight loss, but I would guess it’s not.
  • Yerba Mate – Yerba Mate comes from the leaves of a small evergreen tree that is grown in South America. Yerba Mate contains caffeine along with numerous vitamins, minerals and amino acids and is said to produce a longer lasting boost of energy than that of coffee.
  • GTF Chromium – Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF) Chromuim originates is a complex occuring in Brewer’s yeast. GTF Chromium is believed to help reduce sugar cravings and regulate appetite by stabilizing blood sugar levels, however clinical evidence supporting this from human studies is still lacking.
  • Iodine – Iodine has been added to MiracleBurn for its thyroid-stimulating effects. This ingredient will only aid weight loss if the diet of the person consuming MiracleBurn is iodine deficient, which is not very common in a society so keen on its salty foods.
  • White Willow Bark - White Willow Bark extract has no weight loss benefits on its own, but has proven to enhance the effects of thermogenic ingredients, such as caffeine and Advantra-Z.
  • L-Carnitine – A dietary deficiency of L-Carnitine, a water-soluble, vitamin-like compound responsible for fat oxidation, is rather uncommon in industrialized countries because it is so easily obtained from food sources. Foods that are rich in L-Carnitine include beef, sheep, lamb, poultry, milk and cheese. Our bodies are also capable of producing L-Carnitine on their own. For this reason, most people taking MiracleBurn will experience no weight loss effect at all from this ingredient.

MiracleBurn and Weight Loss – Does MiracleBurn Work?

MiracleBurn may work a little bit, but who really knows? The manufacturer of MiracleBurn provides no evidence that their product helps people to lose weight, and this is a red flag. Only companies that do not wish you to look into the effectiveness of their products avoid listing the nutritional information or providing any supporting evidence from clinical studies.

What we do know about MiracleBurn is that it contains Hoodia, Advantra-Z and Glucomannan, but likely in quantities not even close enough to help you lose weight. It contains Yerba Mate as a caffeine source, but who cares because most of us consume some form of caffeine during the day. And finally, MiracleBurn contains GTF Chromium, Iodine, White Willow Bark and L-Carnitine that have weak clinical evidence they even aid weight loss. 

After this review of MiracleBurn diet pills I think it is safe to say you shouldn’t waste your money on this product. It would be a “Miracle” if this diet pill does anything at all.
