Cylaris, a vitamin based diet pill with a high caffeine level.  And while there was a single unpublished study on Cylaris, but it only briefly dealt with Cylaris possible side effects.   Cylaris is manufactured by Lovate Health Sciences Research Inc, out of Canada. Cylaris is advertised as the “world’s most powerful” weight loss supplement.  Yet, the reviews that have been posted about Cylaris are mixed. Some users complain about side effects from taking Cylaris.

Cylaris Side Effects

Because of the high caffeine level in Cylaris, it is likely that side effects could include insomnia, restlessness, and indigestion.  Some people who took Cissus quadrangularis an ingredient in the Cylaris diet product, experienced side effects such as headache, flatulence, dry mouth, diarrhea, and insomnia. But there is not enough information to know how often these side effects might occur.A doctor should be consulted immediately if more serious side effects, such as difficulty breathing, a rapid heart rate or seizures are experienced.  In the single unpublished clinical study Cylaris side effects included:

• Headaches

Cylaris dosage

Cylaris recommended dosage is two pill with a glass of water twice a day. Cylaris should not be taken within five hours of bedtime, likely because of its stimulant effects that can interfere with sleeping.

Cylaris Review Summary

It is not known how Cylaris works for weight loss. According to the Cylaris marketing information, the effectiveness of Cylaris is based on Cissus quadrangularis but the mechanisms of action for this plant have not been established.  While the Cylaris website claims that the manufacturers have conducted an eight week scientific study, but apparently it has not been published yet.  Cylaris contains a proprietary blend of ingredients and thus we are unable to establish if a daily dose contains the 300 mg of the Cissus quadrangularis extract found to be helpful in limited studies. 

Cylaris marketers incredibly claim that it is possible to lose 1.5 to 2 pounds per day using Cylaris.  Such cotinuous weight loss is impossible; could you envision losing 60 pounds a month; not a single diet drug can deliver anything remotely similar.   And such weight loss claims are in violation of the FTC’s weight loss false advertising red flags for consumers to take caution with. 

Cylaris is simply a vitamins and caffeine pill and can make some users feel unwelcomed side effects.  For example, sleep may be adversely affected, for those who are caffeine and/or stimulant sensitive.  Did you know that Cylaris calorie restrictive menu plans on the Cylaris website are so restrictive that likely most people would be prepared follow them?
