Our Final Review of GNC Total Lean CLA Softgel Capsules
This product does have a viable dosage of CLA per serving and comes in an easy to swallow softgels. Aside for their product claims they do not give us any idea how this product actually delivers on its promises. The only information they provide is a list of bullet points making promises however, there is no information backing up their claims. In our research, we came across a multitude of negative reviews about this product. Consumers claimed that they experienced adverse side effects. They claimed that these gelcaps caused them to break out, lose energy and many say they did not see any results after using this product over an extended amount of time. Another factor that put us off is its price. The cheapest price we were able to find online for a 90-gelcap bottle was $29.99. If you follow their recommended dosage of four gelcaps a day one bottle will not even cover a full month’s supply and if taken for a year will cost $547 a year! This product seems to be similar to other ‘magic’ pills that we have become so wary of that make many promises but end up falling through.
