Cylaris is a non-prescription diet pill that promised the world it was the strongest weight loss formula available. That said, its primary claim to fame occurred when Benjy Bronk used it as a part of an effort to lose 64 pounds in nine weeks to win the weight loss challenge on The Howard Stern Show.
Was Cylaris Really That Good?
Naturally, Bronk went to far greater lengths than just using Cylaris in order to lose all that weight. Still, it caused an explosive interest in this formula, which came with marketing that promised no other weight loss supplement was stronger.
It backed its claims with a sketchy-looking clinical study that suggested that anyone using this product according to its directions could lose up to 32 pounds in 8 weeks. Of course, that “up to” is certainly the key term in this claim, as it includes anything from 0 pounds to 32 pounds, which isn’t all that specific.
Can You Trust the Research?
The clinical trial loosely described on the Cylaris website indicated that over 8 weeks, participants who used this supplement lost an average of 14.52 pounds. Those in the placebo group lost an average of 5.06 pounds.
That means the Cylaris group lost 287% the weight as compared to the placebo group. In the same study, 10% of subjects lost up to 32.78 lbs. in 8 weeks. No other product on the market can deliver the same results due to Cylaris’ unique proprietary formula. The new standard in clinical-strength weight loss has been set.
It’s important to point out that the specific methods or even the size of the sample (number of participants) was not provided. It was unclear who conducted the study and whether the participants were paid. It could have been that a university conducted this study in a double-blind placebo-controlled method. It could also be that the company behind Cylaris conducted its own research using employees as participants. Moreover, this is the only research study conducted on Cylaris.
