C9-T11 is a CLA supplement that makes many claims in regards to how much muscle you can build with it, and how much fat it can help you lose. But does it actually work the way they say?
Getting bigger and leaner muscles is the goal of many guys and losing the fat in order to show off the muscles is a big part of that. Getting a product that is designed to both increase muscle mass and help shed the fat would be a big help towards attaining that goal. Many products out there claim to do both in an attempt to offer the Holy Grail of muscle building and dieting, but few are able to provide measurable or sustainable results.
There are many claims made regarding C9-T11, including that it can build pounds of lean muscle mass and reduce fat at the same time. They say it is a way to begin your total body transformation, and they say that it is able to provide a 600% increase in muscle growth. They also say that it reduces muscle catabolism, or the shrinking of your muscles, and they say it can help you gain a greater focus before your workout so you can train harder.
You may have seen one of several ads out for C9-T11. They appear to be editorials on a “steroid alternative” when in fact they are simply advertisements referring you to the pitch page. These types of advertisements are meant to create a false sense of legitimacy to the product, or make it sound like it is a real scientific breakthrough. Many people can spot these ads and realize they’re reading a pitch, but others subconsciously or consciously believe that they’re getting breaking news from a reliable source.
The cost of one bottle of C9-T11 is $37 plus shipping which varies by state but our total came to $44.40. The four bottle offer where you’re buying three and getting one free came to $120 which includes shipping. That brings the per bottle price down to $30, which is pretty much as low as you can get this for because their bigger offer is the same deal, just double. When you compare this to other CLA products you’ll notice that the price is much higher. You can find CLA on sale at places like Amazon and GNC for far less at the same dosage.
There are a few nice things about the way this is set up. They say that each purchase is backed up by their guarantee which allows you to return the product at any time. Also, the product price is much greater than the shipping cost so if you do return it you’ll be getting a bulk of your money back. Also, they’re not setting you up on an auto-ship or auto-charge recurring payment plan so you’re only getting what you buy on that day and not obligating yourself to further charges and shipments, a common tactic used in the supplement industry, but not here.
Since they offer deals on multiple bottles, it seems that they’re expecting you to take this for a long time. You are only required to take one to two pills twice daily, so in regards to the amount of pills you’re taking each day, there’s not too many of them. You’ll need to commit to going to the gym because this is not a pill that you can simply take and not workout and expect to gain muscle. In fact, if you take it and don’t lift weights you might find that you start gaining weight.
They compare C9-T11 to Nitrous Oxide boosters, whey protein, and creatine and say that it is the only one of that group that does all of the following: increases protein synthesis, increases testosterone, increases muscle strength, and reduces abdominal fat. While the others have been shown to do one of these or may two, they’re saying that C9-T11 does them all with one product.
The ingredients list is pretty telling as to what exactly you’re getting. The only active ingredient listed is 1000mg of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), no proprietary blend, no gimmicky ingredients, just a flashy name that makes it sound more scientific than it actually is.
Final C9-T11 Review
C9-T11 is getting our Thumbs Down rating because no CLA product has been shown to provide the results they claim. Also, the price is unnecessarily high for what the product is, and they’ve merely taken something that’s been around for quite some time, CLA, and marketed it in a way to make it sound new and exciting. While it’s easy to get swept away in all of the claims being made by the company, at the end of the day CLA can only do so much, and there are few reports that it’s capable of doing what they say it can.
If you want to try out a CLA product you can do so for far less of a financial commitment. CLA may be linked to increased levels of testosterone, but there are testosterone boosters available that are specifically targeted for that purpose. There is also some evidence that CLA may have an anti-cancer effect in humans, but those studies are still in their early stages. Also, there is the possibility of negative side effects when using CLA so be sure to consult with your doctor before starting up with it.
