Ultra Omega Burn
A weight loss scam based on dishonesty.
Not much to say
Author does NOT exist
Fake testimonials with stock photos
Twists scientific research to deceive potential buyers
Ultra Omega Burn by ‘Derek Evans’ is another weight loss scam you must avoid. In this review you’ll find out all you need to know about this weight loss pill and all the reasons why you should avoid it like a plague!
Created in 2015, Ultra Omega Burn claims to contain information about a ‘powerful nutrient’ supposedly touted by ‘researchers’ to be ‘the answer to breaking through ANY weight loss plateau or stubborn fat area.’ The said nutrient is none other but palmitoleic acid, aka Omega-7 monounsaturated fatty acid. According to Evans, Harvard researchers discovered that ‘a very small amount’ of this fatty acid led to:
- Fat cells opening up and releasing its contents
- Normal blood sugar levels and reduced insulin resistance
- ‘Block of 96% of arterial plaque
- Improved digestion
- Increased collagen and repair of skin cells.
Evans also claimed that Cleveland Clinic researchers found out that it can reduce chronic inflammation, which is a known cause of weight gain.
But don’t be taken in by these whitewashed lies. Here are the reasons why Ultra Omega Burn is a scam:
1. Derek Evans Does NOT Exist!
Derek Evans never told us who he is and what qualifies him to bring us this weight loss miracle. All he did was to use a stock video of a model pretending to be a doctor (here he is in another Shutterstock video), and to provide another stock photo next to his name in the text version of the website.
I believe this should be pretty obvious to anyone who watched the video. Not much to say here.
2. Fake Testimonials With Stock Photos
All the testimonials featured on Ultra Omega Burn are all made with stock photos. In fact, some of the stock photos used in Ultra Omega Burn were also used as testimonials of Pure Natural Healing, an alternative medicine scam I exposed back in April 2016.
I don’t have the time to trace all the testimonial photos, but here are some examples:
- ‘Julie Cooper’ is actually a stock photo from iStock;
- ‘Kara’ is a stock photo you can buy from 123RF and Alamy;
- ‘Kelly Cooper’ is a stock photo you can buy from Dreamstime.
As you can see, fake, fake, fake.
3. Lies About Palmitoleic Acid
Derek Evans wasn’t being honest with you when he was talking about palmitoleic acid. To start with, he did NOT tell you that this Omega 7 fatty acid is produced naturally by the body and you don’t need to supplement it. Again, he did not tell you that even though scientific studies on animals have yielded good results, studies on humans have yielded mixed results. The original researchers at Harvard acknowledged this, speculating that the dietary sources of palmitoleic acid also contain the bad fat palmitic acid, which antagonizes its effects. However, a 1994 study conducted on 34 men with high blood cholesterol found that palmitoleic acid can increase the blood’s LDL (bad cholesterol) just like palmitic acid – which kinda kills this speculation [NCBI].
Another study conducted on 3,630 men and women between 1992 and 2006 found that high palmitoleic acid levels resulted in reduced LDL (bad cholesterol) and increased HDL (good cholesterol), BUT it caused an increase in triglycerides and increased insulin resistance [NCBI].
Fact is, palmitoleic acid is showing some promise of being a useful supplement for those with cardiovascular disease and obesity. However, it is still too early to say anything definitive and more research is needed.
Final Conclusion: DON’T BUY Ultra Omega Burn. It is A SCAM!
