Abs+ Reviews

Abs+ is a nonprescription weight loss supplement that is manufactured by Genuine Health, a company that produces several different weight management and other health and wellness products. In this case, these pills are meant to assist people to be able to shed stubborn belly fat when they have been struggling to lose weight.

It is described as an all natural formula and it claims that some of its ingredients – green tea and CLA – are clinically proven to help to reduce a person’s waist circumference in a safe and natural way. Though it did not mention the studies that prove that those two ingredients work, the official website does make reference to a study that was conducted on this product by the University of Toronto. There, it claimed that it will work in as little as 90 days.

That claim included a link to where the research was supposed to be available. Unfortunately, the page to which it was linked had nothing to do with that study. After conducting further research on the website, the abstract of the University of Toronto study was found. On one part of the site, it was claimed that it was Dr. Martin Ktzman, while in another part of the site, it was Dr. Kathee Andrews and Dr. Venket Rao who were given the credit. It is unclear as to which among those researchers were truly behind the study.

What the study showed was that using abs+ could potentially stop prescription drugs from bringing on weight gain as a side effect. However, there are two problems with the way that abs+ has used this research as evidence to back up its claims. The first is that it was not conducted on people who were actually trying to lose weight, so it didn’t show if measureable weight loss would result from using it in an effort to shed excess fat. The second problem was that this was only a preliminary study. It involved the participation of only 35 people, six of whom were in the placebo group. This means that only 29 people were actually testing the effects of the pill.

While any results from a study like that could show promise in a pill, would hardly be considered conclusive and would never be considered to be “proof” within the medical community.

The Abs+ website would have been better off citing other studies relating to its green tea extract and CLA, as a number of larger studies have actually been conducted on those ingredients and have been published in peer reviewed journals.
