BPI Sports make a number of different supplements, from protein powders to pre workouts, and Roxylean is their main offering targeted at women.
If you’re a regular reader of our reviews, you’ll already know that we’re big fans of supplements targeted specifically at women, as most products these days seem to be aimed at men.
The manufacturers say that this product has been specifically designed to help support your goals, so we’re looking forward to delving a little bit deeper to see if this product lives up to the marketing hype or not.
We’re going to be taking a close look at the ingredients, the customer reviews, and all of the other important information to determine whether this is a supplement you should be taking or not.
So, let’s kick off our Roxylean BPI review by starting with the basic information about this supplement for women.
Roxylean is marketed as a supplement for women to help support you as you take responsibility for your body.
The official website says that it’s been specifically formulated to help you in three different ways.
This all sounds good to us. As you should already be aware, the best supplements in this category have usually been formulated to work in multiple ways.
It’s a good start, and you’ll definitely want to choose a supplement that works in multiple ways to help support you.
So, it’s good to see that BPI have set out to make a supplement which works in multiple ways. Now it’s time to take a look at the ingredients to see whether this supplement can really deliver on its claims or not.
Let’s start this all-important ingredients section by taking a close look at the actual ingredients label of this product.
The first disappointing thing that we noticed about this product is that it uses something called a proprietary blend.
This is where a manufacturer chooses to mask the individual doses of the ingredients, meaning that we don’t know exactly how much of each substance is used in the product.
Unfortunately, this is not good news, because it makes it very difficult to judge the effectiveness of the product. We strongly feel that there is no excuse for a manufacturer not to list the actual ingredient doses in this day and age.
Anyway, let’s now focus on the main ingredients that Roxylean uses.
• Caffeine Anhydrous – This is a popular ingredient, so it’s good to see it in Roxylean BPI. We always like to see small doses of Caffeine used in this kind of supplement. The bad news about this ingredient is that we don’t know exactly how much is in each dose. Not good, because as you probably already know, too much Caffeine can cause unwanted side effects.
• Lemon – This is the first time we’ve come across a supplement which uses lemon as an ingredient. It’s not one of our favorite ingredients around at the moment. BPI Sports have said that they’ve included this particular ingredient because apparently it can help with certain things. There’s not much evidence to back this up though.
• Yohimbe – This is a chemical derived from the bark of the Pausinystalia yohimbe tree in Central Africa. We have found it in a few different supplements before. However, we don’t rate it as one of the best ingredients because it has been reported to cause some side effects. We would have preferred to have seen something else used in its place.
• Goldenseal – This is a herb which BPI Sports say that they’ve included in this supplement for a variety of reasons. However, we are not convinced by the evidence behind it, so it seems to be a bit of a pointless inclusion.
• White Willow – Again, this is not one of the most popular ingredients. BPI Sports say they’ve used it because it’s “believed” to have certain effects. We prefer ingredients that have actually been proven by science. Again, it’s not one of our favorite ingredients.
• Capsicum annuum – This ingredient is listed under ‘other ingredients’ on the label of Roxylean. Again, we don’t know the exact dose amount, which isn’t good. The good news is that this is one of the most commonly used ingredients in supplements like this. It was good to find it on the label.
Where to start? Roxylean falls quite a way short of being considered one of the best supplements for women on the market right now, in our opinion.
Aside from using a proprietary blend, Roxylean also doesn’t contain any Green Tea Extract, which is one of our favorite and one of the most popular ingredients for a product like this.
We’d also have much preferred to see BPI swap one of their somewhat strange ingredients such as White Willow for something like the dietary fiber Glucomannan.
There was also no Green Coffee Extract or Chromium in this product. This was a real shame.
It also doesn’t use Turmeric, one of the flagship ingredients of our current top rated female supplement Leanbean.
All in all, Roxylean falls quite a way short of being considered one of the best supplements for women by our team.
As we’ve already mentioned, there are a few ingredients in Roxylean which could cause side effects in some people.
The problem with the proprietary blend is that some ingredients could be overdosed and others underdosed. We simply don’t know.
Yohimbe has been reported to cause some problems for some people, so we are not fans of it as an ingredient.
We don’t know exactly how much Caffeine is included per serving. The closest thing we get to an official dose is from the official website, where it says that one capsule is the equivalent to “three cups of coffee”.
We strongly recommend speaking to your doctor before thinking about taking any new supplement for the first time.
The directions for Roxylean are pretty simple.
You are advised to take one capsule daily, in the morning on an empty stomach before food, or as directed by a qualified healthcare practitioner.
There is a warning saying not to exceed the stated dose of one capsule per day.
From our research, the best supplements require you to take them multiple times a day. As we touched on above, it’s better to be regularly supplied with doses of the ingredients.
The leading supplements usually require you to take them three to four times per day. It’s unlikely that one capsule per day is going to have much of an effect.
We found lots of positive reviews of Roxylean on the official website, although that’s probably not a surprise. It had an average rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars.
One person warned that this product is “no joke” and said not to mix it with other supplements.
Someone else said that it made them sweat a little bit more during their workout at the gym.
We’re still waiting to hear more about this product from customers.
Not really. Roxylean contains a couple of good ingredients but it’s fallen short of expectations because of the fact that it uses a proprietary blend and has a lot of somewhat strange ingredients.
Leanbean is our top pick for supplements for women on the market at the moment. You can check out the rest of the top five in our full guide via the link below.
As we say when discussing any supplements, there is no such thing as a ‘magic fat burning pill’ to help you lose weight.
If you want to make a change, you should always first make sure that your diet and training regime are both on point.
You should only consider taking a quality supplement after you’ve addressed the fundamentals. That means training hard and eating a healthy and balanced diet.
That wraps up our Roxylean BPI review. Overall, this product fell quite a way short of our expectations. It uses too many strange ingredients and also has a proprietary blend to make things worse.
Put simply, we think that there are some much better options on the market right now.
