CardiaShred is a dietary supplement that can be purchased without a prescription. It claims to be “medical doctor formulated 5 in 1 Heart Healthy Weight Loss” and was developed by Heüer M.D. Research. It has been formulated to help a person quickly lose weight, burn calories, build lean muscle mass, boost energy, and support heart health.
It is marketed to those who want to lose weight, as well as to bodybuilders and athletes who want to lower their body fat levels. Thus, while it has been developed for weight loss it has been designed with those who are very physically active, in mind.
The CardiaShred formula boasts 32 “potent” active ingredients, some of which include: Caffeine, COP, Citrus Aurantium, Green Tea, Yohimbe, Cissus quadrangularis, and Omega 3(from fish source). The pill was formulated by Dr. Harv Heuer, a medical doctor and the CEO of Heüer M.D. Research.
While, at first, it may sound impressive that a diet pill has 32 active ingredients, the reality is that this is far from the truth. The above list of ingredients is worrisome on its own, the reason being it contains several powerful stimulants. In fact, caffeine, citrus aurantium, green tea, and yohimbe, are all stimulants.
Although some may believe that the more stimulants a diet pill product has the better its energy boosting capabilities (as it will help to keep you more alert and motivated during workouts), the trouble with multiple stimulants is that they increase the risk of potentially problematic side effects such as insomnia, headache, anxiety, rapid heartbeat, jitters, nervousness, mood swings, and digestive upset.
Moreover, citrus aurantium (bitter orange) contains synephrine, a stimulant that the FDA warns may cause dangerous side effects in some people, such as serious cardiovascular events like stroke and heart attack. As a result, the FDA has warned dieters to avoid taking products that contain this ingredient for the purpose of losing weight.
Due to the fact that CardiaShred could potentially be dangerous for some people, it is highly recommended that you speak with your medical practitioner before taking this product, regardless of whether your intention is to take it for weight loss purposes alone or if you have bodybuilding or some other athletic goal in mind.
