Our Verdict On Cellucor L2 Extreme

Cellucor is a well respected bodybuilding supplements brand and the ingredients profile looks extremely efficient for increasing urination.

However, we have serious concerns about the whole concept of water weight and shredding. It can cause side effects and lead to dehydration and in our opinion, there is something rather ridiculous about this whole practice, however good the end results may look. Taking a supplement to remove water and then replacing lost water by drinking all day seems a little pointless and obsessive. In the bodybuilder world it probably makes perfect sense but people who are not bodybuilders are not going to achieve anything by taking this supplement.

This means that although we do believe that Cellucor L2 Extreme will work in the way as described, we cannot approve this supplement.

Cellucor L2 Extreme Review

Cellucor L2 Extreme is a powerful diuretic that will help you shed the water that is stored between the skin and the muscles. According to serious body builders this stored water spoils the tone and definition of the muscles, making all your hard work in the gym count for nothing!

As you may expect, Cellucor L2 Extreme is not aimed at the person who just wants to lose a little weight. This supplement is solely aimed at people who are extremely serious about training and body definition. Some might say, people who are obsessive about it!

What Does Cellucor L2 Extreme Claim To Do?

The Cellucor L2 Extreme product information explains the problem of water in bodybuilding:

Water is an always-present component in our bodies, stored between the skin and muscles. Despite eating a clean diet, working out and achieving the fat loss from those efforts, excess water can compromise muscle tone and definition.

The potential speed of losing water weight is explained.

While fat loss requires time, and a fusion of hard work and patience, water weight loss can shed quickly with the right product.

Cellucor L2 Extreme is described as a supplement that “immediately delivers the tight, hard look you want.”

There are five key features:

  • Natural and Strong Diuretics
  • Antioxidant Support
  • Hydration Ingredients
  • Metabolism Boosters
  • Stimulant-Free

It is described as “the strongest and safest solution.”

Cellucor L2 Extreme is one of the strongest diuretics on the market. It quickly rids the body of excess water weight, while supporting the body’s maintenance of sufficient vitamin and mineral levels.

Does Cellucor L2 Extreme Work?

Despite a few negative comments, we believe that Cellucor L2 Extreme does work for many people. If you are looking to enter a competition or have booked a photo session and want to look especially shredded for it, this supplement may help you achieve this aim.

It is important to remember that it will only provide a temporary effect. You cannot actually live like this. Nobody can have these well defined shredded competition muscles and water weight free six pack without a lot of effort and maintenance. It comes with the risk of dehydration and the product information clearly warns about the importance of staying hydrated and not taking the supplement for long periods of time.

That said, if you are a competitive bodybuilder, Cellucor L2 Extreme may help you get results.

Are There Any Customer Reviews For Cellucor L2 Extreme?

There is customer feedback for Cellucor L2 Extreme and some customers are satisfied.

This reviewer gave a detailed account:

Understand that L2 is not a weight loss supplement in the manner most people think. The water loss really doesn’t account for much weight, maybe two or three pounds (I do it every 6 months or so, so I’m probably only seeing a pound).

That being said, the aesthetic gain is pretty substantial. My muscle looks more defined and the striations between the fibres are more noticeable without the extra water. My vascularity is always much more exaggerated after a bottle of L2, to the point that guys at the gym who have seen me 5 or 6 days a week for the last few years will randomly stop me and ask what I’m on (especially on Arm Day)….

This customer went on to say:

…If you’re not already drinking a gallon a day, you should make that a goal while on a diuretic…

Other customers have reported the same. This reviewer said:

With proper diet and exercise which you already should have been doing added with Cellucor L2, you will get the shredded look you want.

It’s not a miracle pill so if you’re fat and out of shape you will stay that way and this product is not for you. Make sure to drink lots of water while you take this stuff for 5 days! It’s as advertised this stuff works

Not everyone is as satisfied. This customer said:

I would not waste your money on this product. I drank the recommended water and still got leg cramps but did not drop any water weight.

Other reviewers have reported similar experiences:

Honestly I’m not sure how much this worked at all. I didn’t feel like I lost much water weight at all. If anything it might have helped manage it. For the high price though I would say it is not worth it. There are probably plenty of cheaper more effective solutions out there

Does Cellucor L2 Extreme Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?
