What is Cutting Edge and How Does it Work?
Like a many other diet pill options, Cutting Edge is designed to provide several benefits that are intended to encourage fat loss.
The main benefits promised are:
- Increased satiety
- Lipid metabolism
- Thyroid function
- Improved digestion
Putting it in layman’s terms, its a diet pill that’s intended to suppress the appetite and make the fat burning process more efficient.
Six capsules (daily dose) contain:
- Glucomannan (3000mg)
- Green Coffee Extract (400mg)
- L-Phenylalanine (400mg)
- Caffeine (300mg)
- Cinnamon Extract (250mg)
- Peppermint Leaf Powder (50mg)
- Choline Bitartrate (50mg)
- BioPerine (5mg)
- Chromium Picolinate (1mg)
- Selenium Methionine (55mcg)
Cutting Edge Blend Potential
Glucomannan is obviously the main ingredient and it’s a good one to have because it’s use as an appetite suppressant has been endorsed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
It’s a form of natural fibre extracted from the roots of the konjac plant and its ability to curb hunger comes courtesy of the fact that it has the ability to absorb large quantities of water.
The hydration process causes the fibres to expand in the stomach and create the feeling of satiety that’s responsible for suppressing the appetite. Although the value of the ingredient has not been disputed by the EFSA, they state good results will require three (1000mg) doses per day, taken with two glasses of water, before the three main meals of the day.
Green coffee bean extract is also a good ingredient. Although it’s abilities as a thermogenic fat burner generally gain the most attention, it also has the ability to moderate blood sugar levels and help prevent sudden desires for sweet food. Chromium picolinate also has this ability.
The stimulatory powers of caffeine, a proven fat burner in its own right, may help prevent diet-related fatigue. Selenium is necessary for healthy thyroid function.
The thyroid produces hormones that regulate the metabolism so, on the face of it, selenium would appear to be a valid inclusion, but iodine is equally important for thyroid health and the Cutting Edge formulation fails to make this important pairing.
Peppermint is known to be good for the digestive organs, so the Cutting Edge formulation does contain ingredients that should be capable of helping the formulation work in the intended way.
Cutting Edge Customer Feedback
The manufacturer’s website is the only source of customer reviews. This is not ideal. Reviews published at a less biased source would carry a lot more weight.
However some of the reviews slam the product’s ability. That’s a good sign because it suggests the feedback system may be honest.
A few sample customer comments read:
Cutting Edge Side Effects & Health Issues
If any side effects have been reported, Bulk Powders are keeping quiet about it, but they point out the fact that six capsules contain 300mg of caffeine.
That’s 100mg per dose (about the same as a cup of coffee). This should not be a problem for most people, but the product will be unsuitable for anyone who wants to lose weight without using stimulants or does not tolerate them well.
Cutting Edge is not recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers. People who are under a doctor’s care and/or using medicine or other supplements are advised to get their doctor’s approval before adding Cutting Edge to their daily weight management routine.
Cutting Edge Purchasing Options & Considerations
You can only buy Cutting Edge from the Bulk Powders website and a 30-day supply of pills (180 capsules) will cost you £29.99. That’s considerably cheaper than most other options so, as far as the price goes, it’s not bad at all.
There is a “money back guarantee” and it’s good for 28 days, but it’s not quite what it appears to be. Customers who are “not happy with CUTTING EDGE and have not used an unreasonable amount” can return it.
But the refund will be in the form “Bulk Points” that can only be used to purchase more Bulk Powder products.
This is not a money back guarantee at all and it seems likely that it will only be valid if very little of the product has been used.
Customers would need to use the product for at least a month to give it a fair go; so the Bulk Powders guarantee is does not compare well to the 60-day no quibbles money back guarantee that is provided by the manufacturers of leading weight loss products like PhenQ and Phentaslim.
The Bottom Line
Cutting Edge contains ingredients that should be capable of furnishing it with the ability to do the things it’s supposed to do, but it’s primary power is likely to be as an appetite suppressant.
The formulation does not contain any of the top fat burning ingredients, like green tea or capsicum extract. This could explain why the formulation has failed to benefit so many users.
Appetite suppression is certainly important to weight loss, but it’s not always enough to provide the kind of fast results most dieters crave.
If Bulk Powders had ditched some of the ingredients with lesser abilities, such as cinnamon and selenium, in favour of something with better fat torching abilities this could have been a truly cutting edge product but, as it stands, it’s a poor second to the top diet pill formulations, all of which come with a real “money back” guarantee.
