Razberi-K® raspberry ketone - This is a major aromatic found in red raspberries. Raspberry ketone helps with weight reduction through two mechanisms:
1) Enhancing the breakdown ("burning") of fat - The chemical structure of raspberry ketone is similar to the structures of capsaicin and synephrine, two compounds known to exert anti-obesity actions and alter fat metabolism in favor of fat weight loss. Raspberry ketone increases a process known as norepinephrine-induced lipolysis. Additionally raspberry ketone supplementation appears to result in a higher secretion of the hormone adiponectin. Both of these effects - increased norepinephrine-induced lypolsis and higher levels of adiponectin - enhance fat metabolism.
2) Decreased fat absorption and storage - Raspberry ketone assists in inhibiting a primary step in the absorption of fat, trioleoylglycerol hydrolysis. Additionally, not only does an increase in adiponectin result in increased metabolism of fat, it also is associated with a decrease in fat storage.
Fabenol Max™ Phaseolus Vulgaris L. - The extract from the white kidney bean is commonly referred to as a "starch blocker" or "carbohydrate blocker." This "blocking" effect is due to its ability to reduce the activity of an enzyme known as alpha amylase, which is involved in starch breakdown and sugar absorption. When less alpha amylase enzyme is available, there is a greater potential for more carbohydrates (primarily starchy carbohydrates) to be excreted from the body instead of being assimilated into sugars and stored as body fat. This effect may also support healthy blood sugar levels.
Successfully reaching your target weight and keeping it there may be a real struggle for you, especially if you're a "carb junkie." Not anymore! Phytolean will help you win the war against weight. The Phytolean formula is safe, natural, and plant-based. Unlike weight-loss products that offer unrealistic promises and deliver no results, we guarantee that Phytolean will work for you. Not "may" work, WILL work - Phytolean is that effective!
In a nutshell, Phytolean:
Helps to increase your body's fat-burning potential
Aids in reducing fat absorption
Blocks the digestion and absorption of starchy carbohydrates
All of these help you to lose weight, maintain ideal blood sugar levels, and achieve optimal body composition without any undesirable side effects that can occur from stimulant-based weight-loss products.

Hasn't been Long Enough...It's only been 2 weeks and I haven't really noticed anything, but I wanted to give myself at least 30 days before judging this product so I am going to wait and see.

It helpsI am not a high starch eater but occasionally indulge in evening sugar. My
Aerobic activity has been reduced this past six months from norm and I'm not getting younger. Even with this, my body composition has been good and I believe reduced hip and low back adipose gathering has been kept to a minimum. I attribute this to Phytolean usage.

Phytolean ResultsI bought this product for another to try, in addition to myself. We both saw an initial weight decrease, but then returned to our pre Phytolean weight. I've continued to utilize the product & take it per the instruction guidelines but, haven't seen the results expressed by Hammer.

Not so happyI bought these a few weeks ago and so far have gained weight! I'm not eating any differently than before. I'm a HUGE Hammer lover, but this one left me cold. Sorry.

I tried Phytolean for a month; unlike most Hammer Nutrition products, I was NOT impressed, in fact I was very disappointed. I definitely will not purchase this product again. This product did absolutely nothing for me, my diet varied slightly during the holidays, but who's doesn't, hence the reason of purchasing this product. My work outs dropped a bit (cardio went from 5-6 days to 2-4 days due to work schedule) but that should not effect the outcome of what is stated in the product description. I followed the directions on the bottle, still no results, I maintained my weight (even gained a few pounds) prior to starting Phytolean, to make things worse, I still have an unused bottle of this stuff. I'm thinking to just send it back to you, don't worry I don't expect a refund; I just want to get rid of it.

"Winter weight" is not in sightI've been using Phytolean for a few months now, since it was first available. I typically gain about 10 pound during the winter months. Yeah, it gets harder and harder for me to train outside Dec, Jan and Feb. My indoors training isn't nearly as efficient as being on the bike outdoors, so on comes the "winter weight". By using Phytolean, I have actually been able to maintained my end of season weight instead of gaining a few pounds each month. And when the northeast winter weather finally breaks, I'll be able to shed current pound instead of the added pounds...and still with the assistance of Phytolean.

There's hope --- less holiday baggage on the hipsYear after year I've struggled to balance holiday celebrations and New Year's resolutions with common sense and determination. I'm tired of having to work for 6 weeks to take off the pounds gained in 1 or 2 holiday meal/celebration slips. I've seen a difference already, not in losing weight with Phytolean, but in not gaining as much as I normally would (carbs are not my friend, never have been, and I can add 8-10 lbs with simple slips.) My winter cycling gear will be a bigger pleasure to don this winter than in the past without the bloating and girth. I'll continue my battle, but now sincerely feel that there's someone/something in my corner rooting for a thinner, healthier outcome. Thank you.

Still waiting for resultsI got this a couple of weeks ago and have been using it as directed since. I've kept my food intake and workouts consistent during that time but have so far not lost any additional weight. I'm about 10 pounds over my racing weight right now and that hasn't dropped by a single pound of yet. I'm going to up my workouts next week while continuing to use the phytolean and maybe then we'll see some results. My diet doesn't typically consist of a lot of carbs though, I got it to help burn some extra fat as it claims to on the product label. I'd like to give another update in a couple more weeks if possible, two weeks might not be enough time to get any kind actual results.
