Ubervita W700 Thermogenic Hyper Metabolizer Comprehensive Review

ubervita supplement analysisComing in at 2015’s top selling weight loss fat burner on Amazon.com, Ubervita is certainly selling a LOT of their product, W700 Thermogenic Hyper-Metabolizer. Is it’s Amazon dominance well deserved? I personally, am not fully convinced. See where W700 ranks on our best fat burner post here.

This review is 2 parts – 1) my personal experience testing a full bottle of w700, and 2) a comprehensive review of the ingredient profile and company.

Personal Testing and Review

I have been personally testing this product for the last month, following the labels advice of taking 1 capsule twice daily. Like all thermogenics, there is a noticeable increase in energy throughout the day – especially when appropriately timed and spaced out. This is usually do to caffeine and other stimulants (caffeine and guarana seed extract for W700).

I’m not gonna lie, I felt good on this product. Real good. Not only was I more energized, but I also felt more focused (which can be a result of Schisandra) and motivated.

But heres the important question… Did I burn fat and get completely shredded?

The answer… yesish. I lost 1 pound total and decreased body weight from 10.5% to 9.8%.

Not exactly numbers I’m stoked on but not terrible. Obviously this experience comes down to not just the fat burner, but what work outs and what diet I am adhering too (I have done my best to keep these 2 variables consistent over the last 3 months – 2 preceding and 1 during). So really, 1 persons personal experience is not the final word on the issue. I have talked to people who have had much more impressive results than I have. So lets move on to the unbiased ingredient breakdown.

Ingredient Profile Analysis

Heres a copy of the label which I will reference…

fat burner review

Ubervita’s W700 contains 12 ingredients, 11 of which are rolled up into a proprietary blend totaling 468mg. It always bugs when a company is not transparent about their exact amounts. This makes my job as a reviewer more difficult, and your job as an informed, educated customer nearly impossible.

There is 2 primary reasons for proprietary formulas. 1) To protect a unique formula from being replicated by competitors. Makes sense. However, #2 tends to be the more common reason. 2) To allow label stuffing – The process of putting a very little expensive (which are usually the better) ingredients but still being able to market that ingredient.

Now I am not sure which Ubervita had for going proprietary – maybe a little of both, but what I do know is what each ingredient does, and how much is needed to make an impact on the body.

Note: The order of ingredients listed should be in order of mg count. Top being the highest, bottom being the lowest. So it is possible to make educated guesses based on this FDA requirement and the total mg amount.

Ingredient Description

Caffeine: Caffeine is the most commonly injested supplemental ingredient on the planet. It is well tested and a confirmed thermogenic with a lot of scientific backing to support it. A recent study showed caffeine to increase weight loss and fat burning in individuals who exercise. [1].

Schisandra: Used as an adaptogen for resisting stress as well as increasing energy and endurance. Some studies suggest that schisandra may be beneficial for improving focus. I was not able to substantiate any weight loss or fat burning claims, although there is some evidence that it may boost athletic performance. Read more on Schisandra here.

L-Arginine: This ingredient is an essential amino acid and plays an important role in the bodies blood flow and nitric oxide levels. It has notable studies that show improved human performance and increased fat metabolism. However, recommended dosage for weight loss is about 3-9 grams daily!!… This level is impossible in W700’s 468 mg per serving dosages.

Beta Alanine: Beta Alanine is a non essential amino acid that has been shown to improve muscular strength and endurance by increasing the production of carnosine. By increase muscle within the body, your body will naturally burn more fat and calories. Studied dosages for notable effects range from 800-1000 mg daily. Again, like L-Arginine, W700 clearly will not contain studied dosages.

Guarana Seed Extract: The guarana seed is very high in caffeine and is primarily used for its stimulatory properties. Effective dosages range from 50-75 mg.

Uva Ursi: Primarily used to reduce water retention and bloating. Standard dosage is usually around 200 mg. For those who are having difficulty shedding excess water weight, this could be a helpful ingredient.

Capsicum: Latin word for pepper. According to a study published in “Bioscience, Biotechnology and Biochemistry” back in 2006, peppers were shown to reduce body fat update and overall body weight. Further studies are advised.

Garcinia Cambogia: There’s a lot of hype around Garcinia Cambogia and the overall claims are that it stops your bodies ability to make fat and also curbs appetite. I have personally tried this ingredient on its own and it seems to be effective. I definitely noticed appetite suppression. Studies in rat testing have shown Garcinia Cambogia to help regulate cholesterol as well as increasing the bodies ability to use glucose. Standard dosage usually ranges anywhere between 100 – 500 mg.

Raspberry Ketones: Human studies are limited, however, raspberry ketones have been shown to exhibit fat burning potential on specific areas of fat cells in in vitro studies. Further studies will need to be conducted to confirm, although there are many who claim that these work miracles for them.

Company Review

When I googled Ubervita, a shopify website was top ranking. The URL was a shopify domain, not even a private owned domain. This is really weird, but perhaps the company just has a really bad IT manager.

They also have another site at ubervita.com. Not sure why they have two and why their shopify, non personal domain ranks higher than their company site. Either way, this is a reflection of the company and not the product.

Ubervita also offers additional health and fitness nutritional supplements. RocT (Rock Tit anyone?) is a thermogenic drink mix with a completely different formula. It looks more like a pre-workout (with creatine) than a thermogenic, but lets be real, thermogenics and pre-workouts both contain stimulants which is ultimately what people are looking for in a pre-workout. Other products include Uberday (a vitamin/mineral supplement), Ubersurge (a pre-workout), UberNO (nitric oxide booster), UberTest (testosterone), UberSleep, and even UberAbs (a magic formula that targets abs?). Some of these products look decent, and some (UberAbs?) seem like a total joke.

The thing that bothers me with W700 is the frivolous claims. On their Amazon page, they reference this product being used by professional athletes without mentioning any specific endorsements. They also claim to be the most powerful thermogenic in the industry. There’s absolutely no grounds for such claims and I would argue that they go beyond reasonable puffery.

Customer Reviews

w700 amazon reviewsThey have a TON of cusomter reviews on Amazon. At time of writing they have 7,213 reviews (star rating as displayed to the right). How they have such a strong amazon presence and so little traffic on their website is very puzzling. Also, there seems to be no one talking about this product anywhere else but on amazon. This again is very strange and I wonder (although I have no proof) if they have been purchasing reviews to boost popularity. They wouldn’t be the first company to do so. Other ways of eliciting customers for reviews is offering discounts or bribes. I personally think bribing for HONEST reviews is fine and within ethical bounds, but it is impossible to monitor.

That being said, don’t put too much faith in amazon reviews. They can be easily manipulated.

As mentioned earlier in this post, I have had personal acquaintances that have also tried this product. It’s pretty split, some love it some hate it, but we all agree that there are better options available. Check out our list of top thermogenic products here.

Conclusion

Overall, W700 Thermogenic Hyper-Metabolizer is a decent product ASSUMING appropriate amounts of each key ingredient is included. We know right off the bat that some (L-Arginine and Beta Alanine) will for sure NOT have the correct amounts, but others may be within spec. With ingredients like Garcinia Cambogia and Raspberry Ketones, it is POSSIBLE (based on label data) that they COULD have appropriate levels.
