Alpha Pro Nutrition is a shadowy company and although big on social media, there is nothing in the way of real information about who they are or where the supplements are made. However, the official website is glossy and supplements are on sale at Amazon USA.
Alpha Pro Nutrition Alpha Cuts is a powdered supplement that you mix with water in order to make an energy drink, with the idea of fuelling your workout or enhancing fat burning.
It contains a blend of CLA combined with stimulants so you may find that it helps some types of athletic performance, and if you are looking for a speedy buzz it is possible this will work. Many customers have mentioned enhanced energy although not everyone, so it is likely that effects will largely come down to the user.
This supplement does come with some risks to the user. Many of the ingredients will raise the heart rate and blood pressure. In addition, Naringin will cause drug interactions with most prescription medication and NMT is a banned substance in competitive sport.
Customers have mentioned a couple of side effects including headaches, upset stomach, and loss of libido.
Judging by the ingredients list, Alpha Cuts may cause increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, palpitations, pounding heart sensation, increased risk of heart attack or stroke, dizziness, jitteriness, anxiety, insomnia, vomiting, nausea diarrhoea, increased urination.
You need to avoid this supplement if you are taking prescription medication (check with your doctor first) because it may cause your medication not to work or cause other side effects.
You should not take Alpha Cuts if you take part in competitive sport because it contains NMT, a banned substance, according to the World Anti Doping Authorities (WADA)
Alpha Cuts is not overly expensive. It costs $26.99 on Amazon for a tub of 30 servings. It is available in two flavours; Sweet Red Raspberry or Tropical Fruit Punch.
We never like supplements that come with a risk to health so we do have problems with this one. It contains too many different types of stimulant in unknown quantities, so side effects may be an issue for many users. In addition, we cannot see the point of the branded CLA product Clarinol! When looking at the Clarinol product information, it clearly states that you need 3g per day yet Alpha Cuts falls far short of this figure.
Customer feedback is interesting. Some users have mentioned the energy buzz, but not everyone. This suggests that on top of the 239mg of caffeine, the stimulant content may be not as strong as claimed or that the reviewers are so used to stimulants and possibly physically large they just have not noticed!
All this could have been avoided with some adequate product information. It is very important for companies to provide full information, especially when a supplement contains ingredients that may cause side effects. Failing to do this does not help customers looking for a strong stimulant buzz or those customers who are trying to avoid it!
As ever with this company, Alpha Cuts is let down by a lack of proper information. We do not recommend Alpha Cuts to the Muscle Watchdog readers.
If you like websites that show muscle clad men doing manly things like boxing and sweating, and women in tiny shorts leaning over gym equipment, you will probably love the style of the Alpha Pro Nutrition website because it is full of this stuff!
We can’t work out whether this is homoerotic, empowering, or just aimed at gym goers who probably come in all persuasions and will just find the whole thing damn attractive, right from the moodily shot chains (do they even have chains in gyms?), poor lighting, and general atmospheric vibe that is going on. It does not look like any gym we have ever visited, that’s for sure!
Alpha Cuts is a weight loss powder that you add to water in order to make a drink. It comes in a choice of two flavours; Tropical Fruit Punch or Sweet Red Raspberry. It is aimed solely at semi-advanced or advanced athletes, and not first time users. According to the advertising, this is because you need to be in tune with your body and how it reacts to potent substances. So it is marketed as strong but as we all know, strong often means side effects!
Alpha Cuts contains a lot of ingredients; all combined in a proprietary blend, so it is impossible to know just how much there is of any individual ingredient. These include a branded CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) supplement called Clarinol. There are also stimulants including Caffeine, Synephrine, and Higenamine. There is Cassia Nomame, a plant extract that acts as a dietary fat blocker, and Naringin, a powerful chemical found in grapefruit. According to customer information, there is 239mg of caffeine per serving.
It is important to note that if you are taking any type of prescription medication you will need to check with your pharmacist before using Alpha Cuts, because Naringin interacts with most medication.
Check out the ingredients tab and the side effects tab to find out more.
There is also an Alpha Cuts capsule. This has a different ingredients profile to the powder, and you are advised that you can take both products as a stack.
There is very little information about Alpha Pro Nutrition as a company, such as an address or phone number. The company is supposed to be based in Los Angeles, but we could find no record of it in the various business directories. Alpha Pro Nutrition is engaged on social media but again, although you can contact the company by email or message, there are no location details.
However, all supplements are labelled as made in the USA which is good.
According to the advertising,
“Alpha Cuts is the first pre cardio fat burning drink” as well as a “new generation” thermogenic fat burner in powder form.”
Designed to be both a potent fat mobilizer and an energy producing compound that works by triggering lipolytic actions in your metabolic system.
Biochemically superior to all regular fat loss powders ALPHA CUTS® works on several different levels due to its unique formulation and extreme effectiveness. High potency, pureness of ingredients and an integrated balance of these sources compelled Alpha Pro Nutrition to write MAXIMUM STRENGTH above the product name!
There is a warning to non-serious users,
ALPHA CUTS® is not a product for first time users or people who don’t take their workouts seriously. ALPHA CUTS® is an advanced formula for semi-advanced to advanced athletes who are already in tune with their body and how it reacts to potent substances.
It has been tested on pro athletes.
It’s been tested extensively on pro bodybuilders and world class athletes who have given our biochemists crucial feedback on what they expected from a thermogenic formula and what results were obtained by their own ALPHA CUTS® usage.
We would have loved to have known about some of these pro bodybuilders and world-class athletes but as these are never identified, it is hard to believe this claim is true!
We are not provided with full ingredients information, so it is impossible to tell just what this supplement will do!
CLA does seem to have some effect upon muscle mass. However the makers of Clarinol state that 3g a day is necessary and as this entire formula only contains 1.800g, it does not conform to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
There are a lot of different stimulants in unknown quantities in this supplement; caffeine, synephrine, Higenamine, and NMT (N Methyltramine), so you will probably notice these, and depending upon your own physical makeup will either experience an energy buzz or be climbing the walls with the side effects. L Tyrosine can boost energy levels and alertness too.
Will this supplement help you lose weight? It will probably make you too jittery to eat so this in itself may help you lose weight, but don’t be fooled into thinking this is safe or good for you. The Alpha Cuts advertising mentions this supplement is strong almost as a badge of honour, so if losing weight by stimulants is your thing and you don’t much care about safety, it may work as described.
If you take part in competitive sport, you do need to be aware that NMT is on the WADA list of banned substances so you will run the risk of being disqualified for doping. Of course, NMT is present in natural substances such as beer but it all comes down to the quantities, and of course, nobody knows how much of this banned substance is present in this supplement.
In our opinion, this supplement is very questionable.
Serving size is equal to 1 x 3.4g scoop. This is slightly smaller than an average teaspoon.
Many of the ingredients in Alpha Cuts are known for side effects, many of them serious. Effects may depend upon the strength of these and as we do not know this vital information, it is impossible to know how likely these are going to be for most users.
Some customers have mentioned adverse reactions which don’t sound too serious, such as:
Judging by the ingredients list, things are more serious and may include:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your physician before use if you have any underlying health condition or are taking prescription medication. This supplement will cause drug interactions with many types of prescription medication. Definitely avoid if you have a medical condition related to heart or blood pressure. Cease use if you experience side effects and take medical advice from a trained professional.
There are customer reviews. Here is a selection of comments:
Effective appetite suppressant. Feels like an upper. Taste better than the orange which eventually nauseated me and I had to toss. Gets the job done.
This stuff literally wires me into the matrix with the boost it gives me. Whether I take it as a preworkout, like instructed, or as an energy alternative, it works just the same. Will be ordering more in the future.
Gave me an upset stomach during workouts and made my head hurt afterward!
I love the energy it provides me shortly after taking it. I lost 15 lbs in 2 months while using it. Would recommend to anyone
It gave me energy but it’s nasty taste I couldn’t stand so I threw it out.
Tastes good – not sure if it works as advertised…
No, Alpha Pro Nutrition Alpha Cuts does not come with a money-back guarantee.
