Need something to stop those pesky cravings? When you’re trying to shed those extra pounds, nothing is more annoying than cravings. And to make things even worse, when you try to force yourself to stop eating, you are only hurting yourself as it slows down your metabolism.
Once your metabolism slows down, so does your energy. It is a very unhealthy and dangerous way to lose weight.
We understand what it’s like to want or need to cut pounds quick and trust me, we have tried it all! Back in the 90’s, everyone was on that huge diet fad train, trying to eat less and only buy “Non-Fat” or “sugar-free” products which were loaded with chemicals.
People were taking crazy harmful diet pills and buying prescription diet medication all with hopes of trying to get skinny quick.
Thankfully, since then we have expanded our knowledge on healthy foods and healthier lifestyles in general. Nothing is better than old-fashioned healthy diet and EXERCISE!
However, sometimes you just need that extra help to shed those lb’s….the healthy way!
This brings us to our product review today.We are here to introduce you to Nucific’s Bio X4. A 4-in-1 weight management probiotic. You’re probably thinking “Oh, great just another scam.”
Well, no worries we are here to provide you with a full review on a supplement said to take control of your appetite, burn fat, boost energy, stop cravings, enhance your metabolism, help/control digestion, and make you look and feel better than ever…the natural way!
What is BIO X4 and What Does it Do?
Bio X4 is a supplement that they claim contains a unique blend of 4 powerful ingredients that work together to help you control and lose weight: digestive enzymes to help you extract the maximum nutrients, probiotics to rebalance your gut with healthy bacteria, which acts as mood enhancer and appetite suppressant, and EGCG from green tea said to help support a healthy metabolism.
The hunger-control power of Caralluma Fimbriata and the fat-burning capabilities of EGCG work together with the digestive boost of probiotics and digestive enzymes to help your body reach its full weight-loss potential. This will suppress hunger and boost your energy levels throughout the day.
What Are Probiotics?
First of all, do not freak out with the word “bacteria” there is good bacteria and bad bacteria. Probiotics are the good kind!
Probiotics are microorganisms that many believe provide health benefits when consumed. The term probiotic is currently used to name ingested microorganisms associated with benefits for humans and animals. They are active yeasts that interact with the bacteria that is living in your gut.
We don’t want to freak you out but you have more than 500 types of bacteria in there, but they are essential to your health. Although our bodies do require “good” bacteria and “bad” bacteria; sometimes the “bad” outweighs the good, this results in digestive and health problems, which taking a probiotic is thought to help cure and make your gut a happy and healthy one!
Your digestive system is directly related to your health and your weight. Recently, probiotics have gained a ton of popularity in the health and fitness world due to their benefits.
Probiotics Listed in BIO X4:
- Lactobacillus acidophilus blend (L. acidophilus, L. rhamnosus, L. Plantarum)
- Bifidobacterium blend (B. lactis, B. animals)
Both are the most well-known of probiotic species, for a total of five different strain at a total of 4 billion CFUs (that is, colony-forming units, the standard of measurement regarding all bacteria – the more CFUs, the more chance that the beneficial bacteria will populate the intestinal tract) per capsule.
Bio X4 Full Ingredient List
- Probiotic Blend: 4 billion CFU per capsule – Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. rhamnosus, L. plantarum, Bifidobacterium lactis, B. animalis.Digestive Enzyme Blend: 88mg – Amylase (from Aspergilus Oryzae), Bromelain, Lipase (from Rhizopus Oryzae).
- Weight Management Blend: 100mg – Green Tea Extract (50% EGCG)
- Craving Control Blend: 166mg – Caralluma Fimbriata Extract
- Caralluma Fimbriata: Multiple studies have shown Caralluma Fimbriata extract to be a safe and powerful appetite suppressant. One study published in Appetite (May 2007) indicates that Caralluma extract helps suppress appetite and reduce waist circumference.1
- EGCG is natural compound found in green tea. It has been shown in several studies to boost the body’s fat-burning activity. One study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition indicated that EGCG quadrupled belly fat loss.2
Digestive Enzymes are tiny protein molecules that break down the foods you eat and unlock the nutrients for your body to absorb. As you get older, though, your production of these enzymes starts to slow down.
BIO-X4 includes 3 key digestive enzymes to help you get the most from the food you eat:
Amylase: an enzyme that is in our saliva to help us digest carbs like rice and potatoes and break down sugars. Taking it as a supplement may help with swelling.
Lipase: also breaks down fats and is produced in our pancreas and helps us break down proteins into amino acids. Most people don’t need additional lipase, although a small clinical study of 18 people showed it could help with indigestion, bloating, and gas.
Bromelain: another enzyme found in pineapple and helps digest protein . It has been used to treat indigestion and appears to be effective for reducing inflammation and infection from injuries . Also helps with bloating and gas,etc
Probiotics are friendly bacteria that help balance your gut. Your digestive system has both good and bad bacteria:
Good bacteria helps your body absorb nutrients properly and helps unlock the enzyme from your food while the “bad bacteria” causes digestive problems and makes your body crave sugars, chips, carbs, and all the fatty foods we love but hate.
Does Bio X4 Cause Side Effects?
Keep in mind everyone’s body is different, especially when it comes to taking supplements. As with most nutritional supplements, even though many of BIO X4’s ingredients may not provide the benefits claimed by the manufacturer, it should still be pretty tolerable for most of us.
The probiotics in BIO X4 may cause a temporary increase in bloating or gas, although this side effect should resolve itself over the course of a couple days. Caralluma might also lead to gas, constipation, or stomach pain, (coincidentally) which should subside after a week of use. Kind of confusing.
The only other side effect would be for those sensitive to caffeine which comes from the green tea extract.
Still, nothing too serious goes as far as side effects.
Where Can I Buy Bio X4?
Bio X4 can be purchased directly from their site. You will not your locals stores such as like Walmart,GNC, Walgreens, CVS, or Vitamin Shoppe. Going directly to their company site is pretty much your only option.
Bio X4’s pricing is as follows:
30 day supply at $99*, 90 day supply at $261.36, or a 180 day supply at $487.08. It is definitely not cheap but the more you buy the more you save.
Also, if you need a safety net, they do offer a money back guarantee if it does work out for you which is a plus!
We are giving Bio X4 a 3 out of 5. We’ll start with the ingredient list which is pretty great and full of healthy goods. However, after some research, there are many mixed reviews from good to extremely scammy which is always a red flag and the price point is steep.
More importantly, from personal experience, we did not experience any bad side effects (thankfully) but also did not experience too many great ones. There was a nice little boost of energy and did notice a slight decrease in appetite however serious pounds were shed.
However, Depending on the person and your goal, this could be the product for you. Do your test and trial and see what happens.
Worth a shot!
