Has anyone tried Estrolean Fat Burner Supreme?? I am considering trying it along with my diet and exercise program for a boost. It doesn't have Ephedra but does contain caffiene. But wondered if anyone has tried it already and if they experienced any side effects. Thank you!

Hi Halley! Did you ever start the Pinnacle Estrolean supplement? I just ordered it from this site. I have searched desperately for reviews over the net and have found NADA! After reading some negative reviews on pinnacle products from the forums, I'm considering returning mine without even trying it. I would love to hear how it worked for you.

I may not be a female (please don't hold it against me :) ), but I still may be of help :D Pinnacle, is reputable as far as their quality control; so, not getting what you pay for, in terms of quantified ingredients, is not the issue (as it seems). The main issue with Pinnacle, is due to their formulations (and the lack of effectiveness, that stems from it).
Putting that aside, this formula is marginal, but not horrid. It has the estogen balancers, that may help older (relatively) women to keep their levels in check. Although, it may be cheaper to buy the soy isoflavones themselves. Digestive enzymes (Protease, etc..), are not going to be overly beneficial, unless you are extrmely deficient in such enzymes (you would have a harder time breaking down your food). Other than that, it has a tad of caffeine from several sources , and the non-stimulatory synephrine (about 2.6 mgs). Synephrine, while not as harsh as ephedrine, is consequently, not as good as ephedrine for weight loss. This formula, as well only has a small amount. There are other bells and whisles in this product, which do not contibute anything above a marginal impact upon this formula.
All, in all, it is not bad, but considering the price, and considering the many options available, it most certainly is not the best option. If you are a women over 30, you can use the soy isoflavones (you may wish to read up on this, to come to your own informed conclusion) for Estrogen balance (you can also use Black Cohosh, and Red Clover), and you can use Green Tea as well. So, you do not have a bad formula, and it is not harsh, but at the same time, there are better options (so, there is no harm in using it for now, as it is reasonable; next time, you may wish to use something else :) ). Read up on the respective herbs that I mentioned (Soy isoflavone, Black Cohosh, Green Tea, Red Clover).
