Cylaris

A vitamin-packed weight loss supplement.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Cylaris is one of the many vitamin-based supplements manufactured by Iovate Health, the Canadian vita-giant that also produces the "MD" lline, including, but not limited to, Joint MD, Allergy MD, Sleep MD, etc. Claiming to be the "world's most powerful" weight loss supplement, Cylaris is meant to be taken as an oral supplement, two capsules a day, two times per day, before meals.

PRO
  • Cylaris is easy to take
  • Website support includes testimonials with users enjoying a reasonable and healthy weight loss of not more than 1.5 pounds per week for women, 2 pounds per week for men
  • High levels of B-vitamins and three sources of caffeine for extra energy
  • Ingredients, such as green tea extract, have been shown to be effective appetite suppressants
  • Recommended six mini-meals is a healthy approach to eating
CON
  • Mind-boggling amounts of vitamins and caffeine could make most users feel sick upon consumption
  • Body will acclimate to levels of supplements in Cylaris and hunger will resume over time
  • Sleep may be severely affected, for those who are caffeine and/or stimulant sensitive
  • Menu programs recommended by the Cylaris website are more restrictive than most people could follow
INGREDIENTS

Cissus quadrangularis is an herbal supplement not regulated by the FDA.

Cylaris claims to have conducted an 8-week scientific study, but said study is somehow "not available" to the public, and when contacted, a representative to the company admitted that the study is "not yet published."

Two caplets contains:

  • Vitamin B-6
  • Folic Acid
  • Vitamin B-12
  • Selenium
  • Chromium
  • Proprietary Blend
  • 3 types of caffeine, including green tea extract
DIET and NUTRITION

Cylaris encourages a diet rich in healthy foods like whole grains, fresh produce and seafood. You should stay away from fast food.

EXERCISE

Website testimonials have activity tips, however, Cylaris is clearly meant to be an oral supplement, and users are on their own to come up with a physical activity plan that works.

CONCLUSION

Iovate Health seems to have the "supplement promise" category nailed down, as evidenced by the additional products that they manufacture, including Hydroxycut, RapidSlim, and Smart Burn. The company recommends the supplement to be used for 8 weeks, however testimonials for weight loss are as long as 30 weeks, or 7 months.

Cylaris seems to be a marginally healthy way to get a jump-start on weight loss via massive water loss, however, unless lifestyle changes are maintained for a lifetime, the cost and the jitters are unfortunate side effects.

I started Cylaris a week ago and so far lost 6 lbs. It really curbs my cravings for sweets and a huge plate of food. I am very conscious about portion control and drinking more water. My biggest struggle has been to stay away from sodas. I feel great, the only thing I need to start is exercising regularly.

I just started taking it and have lost 4 pounds in 5 days. No exercise because of the weather outside, but don't have the cravings for sweets, so I am eating healthier. I find it does help my appetite. my stomach has felt a little quesy after the second tablet in the evening, but it has kept me from eating late. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Just took my first pill at 7:30 a.m. and only had a light yogurt for breakfast. Looking to lose 30 lbs over the next 12 months. It doesn't happen overnight folks!

I'm 5'2" and weigh about 164lbs. I would really like to lose at least 30lbs and I'm hoping Cylaris can help. I've only taken it for 2 days so far but I've noticed that I do have increased energy throughout the day and that my appetite is somewhat reduced. There are small crashes as well as stomach pain. Also the pills smell really bad. Other than that though I like it so far

I have lost 52 pounds taking Cylaris. 4-6 lbs per WEEK! I am only 5'3, and was 241 pounds. I feel fuller, faster. It helps with my cravings. I DID have to cut my caloric intake to 1500 per day, and I DO exercise, 2-3 miles per day, 4x a week. There is no magic pill that is going to miraculously take the weight off you while you sit on the couch, watching Days Of Our Lives, but if you make the lifestyle changes, take the pills and STICK to it, I'm tellin ya, it worked for me.

I have only been taking it a day and half, but I have so much energy on just 1 pill I don't think I will take two until my body gets used to this! I like it though, it definately seems to cut back the hunger.

I have only taken it for 3 days now and i am not going to take it any longer. I felt really sick to my stomach within 10 minutes of taking it, then my skin felt like it was burning and i ended up getting red blotchy skin head to toe. I must be allergic to something in it, but it doesnt seem right.
