NutraVesta ProVen Scam: Shocking Supplement Review Details

August 27, 2020 GMT

New York, NY - ( NewMediaWire ) - August 26, 2020 - ProVen was first introduced to the world through an hour and a half video published on YouTube. In it, an unnamed man goes on to explain how much of impact obesity had on his wife’s life. Though his wife tried not to show her desperation, he claims to have been able to read her mind, which reflected a lack of confidence, frustration in not being able to lose weight, and defeat. Upon searching for a natural solution, he supposedly came across the answers to all his questions. Where might you ask? As per the claims made, it was at a monastery in Tibet.

Long story short, the health practices followed by Tibetan monks were used as a  foundation to create the ProVen solution. Given that our curiosity levels heightened upon watching this promotion, it became of interest to investigate ProVen as a weight loss solution. Here’s everything that has been made available at the time of writing:

What is ProVen?

ProVen is presented as a  dietary supplement that supports detoxification. It is described as the first-ever all-natural treatment that has been formulated to target the root cause of excess body fat, which the team deems is “through obesogens and pollution exposure.” The need for ProVen stems from the fact that the tea suggested by Tibetan monks were simply too hard to swallow (due to its horrid taste), hence comes to the capsules alternatively.

What role is ProVen purported to play?

As per the official website,  ProVen is meant to act as a fat burner, natural detoxifier, and appetite suppressant. In particular, the unnamed individual in the YouTube video insists that this formula focuses on eliminating toxins because they might have a drastic impact on hormones, resulting in unexplained weight gain. Having said all that, consumers have been told that this approach has since helped 74,820 people in regard to their waist size, energy levels, and health, to name a few. However, to see whether ProVen plays the suggested roles, the listed ingredients need to be explored.

What ingredients are in ProVen?

The ProVen formula is broken down into two sections; one that houses vitamins and minerals and the other, which focuses on an array of plants, herbs, and botanicals, among others.

Below is a brief summary of what each serving of two capsules might consist of:

  • Vitamin C (30mg)
  • Vitamin E (20mg)
  • Selenium (20mcg)

As for the Proprietary Blend, which amounts to 1512mg per serving, individuals can anticipate ingesting:

  • Graviola leaf
  • Red raspberry
  • Green tea
  • Beta-glucan
  • Turmeric
  • Pine bark
  • Essiac tea complex
  • Grapeseed
  • Mushroom complex
  • Quercetin dihydrate
  • Pomegranate
  • Olive Leaf
  • Arabinogalactan
  • Cats Claw
  • Garlic
  • Panax ginseng
  • Lycopene

Upon first glance, it is evident that neither the vitamin-mineral complex nor the proprietary blend includes ingredients that upsurge fat burning directly. It could be that these ingredients help to improve different health aspects, which, as a result, might induce weight loss results. However, very little evidence suggests this. Speaking of evidence, see below for an in-depth analysis of some of the ingredients found in ProVen’s proprietary blend.

What does research suggest in regard to ProVen’s proprietary blend?

Though  17 ingredients were used in the ProVen formula, only 35% of them have any link to weight loss results. This alone goes to show that ProVen might be nothing more than a formula filled with unnecessary ingredients to argue their set prices. Here’s an overview of what research has to say for the following ingredients:

Arabinogalactan

Arabinogalactan is a type of prebiotic, which allegedly stimulates weight loss. It turns out that it works in reducing blood sugar levels, consequently impacting weight. Another factor linked to blood sugar levels is appetite. When these levels are well-managed, one’s appetite is said to be under better control, ultimately preventing one from overeating.

Beta-Glucan

Beta-glucan is a type of soluble fiber that can improve health heart and cholesterol levels. Aside from the latter two, this fiber is deemed essential in regulating blood sugar levels and maximizing one’s digestive, immune, and gut health. Though this ingredient seems to have its benefits, researchers have yet to reveal its true potential. Hence, some uncertainties still remain in place.

Graviola Leaf

Graviola is a type of tree found in Africa, South America, and Southeast Asia. It is popularly known for its fruit, which is believed to carry anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties. Though only a  handful of studies have been conducted on its effectiveness, individuals are told that it carries a rich source of antioxidants that can help stabilize blood sugar levels and reduce inflammation.

As for its ability to induce weight loss, a study conducted on mice concluded that it could, in fact, help individuals lose weight. However, the only way this is possible is if the dose of Graviola consumed is at least 25 times one’s weight (in pounds). This is highly unlikely with ProVen give that the proprietary blend together amounts to 1512mg per serving.

Green Tea

Green tea carries a rich source of antioxidants and caffeine. Caffeine is a widely acclaimed stimulant that has been found to boost fat burning potentials. In addition, it contains epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which has been linked to a boosted metabolic rate. Having said all that, the actual weight loss is considered quite meek, to say the least. If one were to take green tea alone (without any diet or training), it is less likely to yield a weight loss of a pound a day.

Red Raspberry

Red Raspberry is another ingredient commonly found in weight loss supplements, namely its compound called raspberry ketone. In terms of its overall effectiveness, studies have found that it can support weight loss as long as it has been combined with other ingredients. However, the actual reason as to why individuals are capable of losing weight remains unknown. To add to this, raspberry ketones have not been studied long enough to say with confidence that it is safe for consumption.

Turmeric

Turmeric has become a hot topic of discussion ever since its compound, curcumin was discovered. Widely acclaimed for its anti-inflammatory properties, select studies have since concluded that it can induce weight loss. However, it is not expected to yield drastic results, at least not  compared to the claims made by NutraVesta.

All-in-all, even though some of these ingredients have been linked to weight loss results, very little evidence seems to suggest a direct connection. As seen above, many appear to be capable when it comes to stabilizing blood sugar levels, which consequently has an effect on weight loss/gain. Another thing worth mentioning here is that many of these studies were conducted on mice, with a select few consisting of human participants.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)Are there any side effects to taking ProVen?

It is unclear as to what possible side effects can arise from taking ProVen, as NutraVesta insists that there have been no cases reported since its launch. However, individuals should consider some of the following to reduce any possible risk further:

  • Take one capsule rather than two in the first week to assess tolerance levels
  • Those with select medical conditions should seek a health professional’s advice on possible interactions
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding women should refrain from taking it unless advised by a health professional
  • Avoid taking it before going to bed, as it includes caffeine derived from green tea
  • Study the ingredients for potential allergic reactions

Is ProVen protected by a refund policy?

Yes, ProVen has been  protected by a 60-day money-back guarantee. This guarantee commences the moment an order has been placed (not when the supplement is received). Hence, individuals actually have much less time to decide whether ProVen is the right solution for them. That said, if one finally decides to return their purchase, all bottles (used or unused) need to be shipped back. Otherwise, the request for a full refund will be rejected.

Here’s where the purchased bottles along with one’s respective ClickBank Order ID, full name and address, email address, phone number and the original packing slip (if safely kept) need to be sent to:

Return Address: 37 Inverness Dr. East #100, Englewood, Colorado 80112, U.S.

What are the pros and cons of ProVen?

At the time of writing, the only advantages of considering ProVen entail its ease of ingestion, and the fact that it was formulated in an FDA-approved facility in the U.S. As for its cons, the prices seem unreasonable given the inadequate source and type of ingredients considered and the company’s lack of transparency throughout. Who can forget the deceiving money-back guarantee, which doesn’t even give consumers the supposed 60 days?

Is ProVen based in America?

As per the YouTube video, ProVen was made in a facility based in the U.S. that follows Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs). However, it is unclear as to where the ingredients are sourced from now that it has been revealed that the solution relies heavily on practices followed by Tibetan monks.

How reliable is the ProVen Clinical Research?

The reliability of ProVen’s supposed clinical research is very questionable, as information regarding it has been omitted altogether. Consumers have only been told that NutraVesta conducted a study involving 62 people with different obesity levels.

The results were as follows:

  • Average weight lost by per person: roughly 55 lbs
  • 95% of participants lost: over 60 lbs
  • Average time to ingested ProVen: three to six months

As interesting as these results are, the study itself cannot be found anywhere, thus, the first among several red flags. Second, no information on the participants has been provided, namely, their gender, age groups, whether individuals participated in some form of physical activity, and how the research team defined “an obese individual.” Given that the overall structure of the study has not been made available anywhere, consumers cannot make a decision based on these results.

How much does ProVen cost?

ProVen was previously offered  at three different price points. Specifically:

  • 1-month supply of ProVen: $49 each
  • 3-month supply of ProVen: $39 each
  • 6-month supply of ProVen: $34 each

An average weight loss supplement can range anywhere between $29.99 and $54.99, according to Amazon. Given that ProVen falls within this price range, the value for the price seems reasonable. However, price alone doesn’t justify whether ProVen is effective.

Final Verdict

Based on the analysis above, NutraVesta seems to have made a collection of claims that have yet to be supported. Just because some ingredients were used historically, doesn’t mean that they are all effective. ProVen is based on a tea that Tibetan monks allegedly rely on for weight management purposes. However, there happens to be insufficient evidence suggesting this. If one were to analyze the formula itself, they are likely to find that majority of the ingredients serve different purposes. This is not to say that they are all ineffective, but maybe they aren’t meant for weight loss per se.

Another area that warrants further investigation is the brand itself, i.e., NutraVesta. For a company that has been boasted as being a leader in the space, very little information is available online. This lack of transparency makes the entirety of ProVen quite doubtful. Luckily, the team seems to have shared their contact information. Hence, individuals are highly encouraged to direct all questions to  support@nutravesta.com  before making a purchase. The same applies in regard to their proclaimed study, where only results have been disclosed. Above all, if we were to recommend ProVen, it would be based on the fact that many of these ingredients seem to target other areas of health, one obvious one  being balanced blood sugar levels.
