X50 Showtime is a fat-burner which caters to most aspects of dieting, including speeding up fat-loss, as well as improving mood and energy levels.
The ingredient profile looks great, however due to the individual doses being hidden (except for caffeine), we can’t tell if they’re included in effective doses or not.
Usually this is a bad sign, however if Tribeca Health managed to squeeze in optimal doses of most ingredients, we would have a very effective all-round fat-burner on our hands.
