ARP was produced by ARThermo as a result of several trials. The manufacturer is not as reputable as it may see from its official website. The supplement does not have FDA approval, even though it was made on the facilities approved by the FDA. Visiting the product's official website, your eyes will be caught by the photos of ripped men with muscular bodies. The manufacturer offers also a few other products of the same type. They claim that ARP is 100% natural and is promised to burn your body fat and increase your energy levels. However, it remains a secret in what way it is possible because there is no information about the ingredient list of this fat burner.
It turned out that it is not an easy task to find out what ingredients are exactly in the supplement. Still, I succeeded to do it but we will come back to this topic later in this review. The manufacturer does not mention any possible side effects from the usage of ARP. It means that they do not really care about the health of their customers, because any dietary supplement can be harmful for the human health or at least cause some allergic reactions in a certain group of users.
The manufacturer claims that ARP contains only safe and natural ingredients, but whether it is true we will try to find out. The official website does not give the complete list of the ingredients used in ARP or any detailed information on its components. It makes me think that the product can contain an inappropriate combination of compounds which can be the reason of unexpected reactions. In this case, I would not risk taking such a supplement. The manufacturer mentions that the product has been studied but there is no proof of any positive clinical research. Still they claim that you will get energy benefits from Caffeine and Green Tea contained in ARP. You are promised to have fat blocking benefits from Orange Extract and Garcinia Cambogia. That is all you can find about the product's ingredients on the website.
As a scientist, I can say that Green Tea has too mild fat-burning effect, so you will most probably not see any visible results. Concerning caffeine, there is a disputable question what effects will prevail - positive or negative. Garcinia Cambogia is not a "miracle fat burner" at all. Weight loss occurs due to the loss of liquid because this ingredient causes a diarrhea effect. It is not a good way to lose weight. Together with my colleagues I have tried different brands of Garcinia Cambogia, but we saw little results. The manufacturer does not specify what Orange Extract they are using. Obviously, this is Bitter orange. It has been shown to participate in weight loss in low-quality clinical trials. But it is a well-known fact that it can produce many different side effects.
I have made my own thorough research of ARP ingredients and would like to share my knowledge. Arginine is used in the product to stimulate the production of growth hormone and insulin, but it is only possible if there is a sufficient dose of this component. The latter remains a mystery. Besides, Arginine has certain health restrictions.
Caffeine really possesses powerful antioxidant properties which can help to reduce body fat but it also has a lot of side effects for people with certain health conditions. So, you should be careful with using caffeine-containing supplements. Chlorogenic Acid can be found in green coffee. It inhibits glucose release, but at the same time it improves the absorption of nutrients in the human body, including fat. So, it can hardly lead to weight loss.
We have already mentioned Garcinia Cambogia in this review, but, unfortunately, this ingredient has too unpleasant adverse reactions in most users. It causes diarrhea and stomach ache. Green Tea is really beneficial for the human health but it can hardly bring any obvious effects in terms of suppressing appetite and losing weight and body fat. The same concerns Orange Extract which has too mild weight-loss effects.
The manufacturer does not give any information about possible side effects of ARP. If the product contains natural ingredients that does not mean that it cannot cause side effects. Let us see how main product's components influence human health.
L-arginine is prohibited to usage by people with allergies or asthma because it makes swelling in the airways even worse. It has to be used with caution by patients with cirrhosis, guanidinoacetate methyltransferase deficiency, herpes and low blood pressure. This ingredient should also be avoided by people who have had heart attack recently as L-arginine can be too risk in this period of life. Kidney disease is also a condition when this substance should not be used.
Caffeine is can cause a lot of side effects including insomnia, restlessness, nervousness, stomach irritation, vomiting, nausea, high heart rate, etc. It can worsen sleep disorders, lead to anxiety, headache, agitation, ringing in the ears, and chest pain. Conditions when caffeine should be avoided include anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, bleeding disorders, heart conditions, diabetes, diarrhea, epilepsy, glaucoma, high blood pressure, irritable bowel syndrome, and weak bones. Let us have a look at some of the customers' reviews.
"I just received ARP today, I took two fat burn pills before my workout but as soon as I started exercising I had got a terrible headache. I think this was the side effect of the pills because I never had headaches before my workouts."
"I decided to cancel my subscription for ARP thinking that it could be a scam, so I called the BBB. But the service line said that I could leave a message and they would call me back. This is exactly what I did but they never called me back!"
"I signed up for a "free" trial and was sent a 30 day supply of ARP. After 9 days (not even 14!) I got billed $87 to my account for this bottle, so I actually paid for a full container. Be aware, this is a scam."
ARP can be bought through a 14-day trial for $4.95 from the official website. Once your trial expires, you will be billed $87.63 for the product. In this way you will receive a regular product supply every month and each time you will be charged $87.63!
I do not think that ARP can take care of your health as it has a number of disadvantages. There is a lot of argue around the effects of orange extract and Garcinia Cambogia. A free trial offer seems to be a deceptive venture. There is no money-back guarantee in reality. It is still necessary to lead a healthy lifestyle to get any positive results from using ARP which causes a number of side effects. Considering the absence of clinical evidence and doubtful autoship program, I consider this product to be a scam. Do not waste your money on this unreliable supplement but look for another more effective and less harmful product.
