Full Meeka Gold Rush Review
Meeka are a pretty small scale supplement manufacturing outfit.
But we keep seeing more and more of their products hitting the shelves. With such rapid expansion, we expect to see these guys become a much bigger player in the industry over the next few years.
They currently make a range of sports supplements, including the usual testosterone boosters and pre-workout pills ubiquitous in supplement stores today.
So what is Gold Rush all about?
What is it supposed to do for you?
According to the bottle, Gold Rush provides “advanced weight loss support”.
The ad banners displayed on merchant sites claim that Gold Rush does just about everything:
- Enhanced fat loss
- Increased stamina
- Natural energy increase
- Appetite suppression
- Sustained energy with no crash
This is a great list of benefits. The best way to boost fat loss is to take multiple different approaches.
But every fat burner claims to do these things.
Very few actually deliver.
So can Meeka Gold Rush really do all of this?
How does it compare to the best fat burners currently on the market?
Is your money better spent elsewhere?
Is Meeka Gold Rush safe?
Find out by reading our full Meeka Gold Rush review below. We start by looking at the formula in greater detail before moving on to the risks. We’ll also look at what some other people have been saying about Meeka Gold Rush.
Please post all of your questions in the comments section at the end.
Meeka Gold Rush Formula
Here is the Gold Rush formula:
In a word: uninspiring.
That formula is a major let down.
Meeka Gold Rush promises so much, and this is what we are given; some bogus, overhyped, garbage ingredients coupled with low doses of green tea and caffeine.
Altogether, we think this is a very low quality formula.
It is certainly not worth the current retail price tag. It isn’t even worth half that.
There’s pretty much no chance of Gold Rush delivering on the promises made by Meeka.
As always though, there are some good ingredfients in here which are worth pointing out.
Here is a breakdown of the main positives of Meeka Gold Rush, and the main negatives.
Main Positives (with Caveats)
There are two good ingredients in Meeka Gold Rush: caffeine anhydrous and green tea leaf.
Caffeine anhydrous is a dehydrated form of caffeine, which means that it is more potent than regular caffeine on a gram for gram basis.
Caffeine reduces the perception of fatigue, increases motivation, and boosts focus.
While you’re dieting, motivation can be the first thing to go. You become dispirited with your training, you lose focus, and you feel deflated.
Training on fewer calories will also inevitably leave you more tired than usual.
Adding caffeine to your pre-training supplementation can help with both of these pitfalls of dieting.
Green tea has fat burning properties independent of exercise.
That means that green tea doesn’t work by supporting your training, like caffeine does.
Rather, it directly encourages lipolysis even if you’re at rest.
A catechin in green tea, called EGCG, has been found to directly stimulate the mobilization of body fat. It has also been found to increase the rate at which you burn body fat.
Several studies, such as this one, have shown that green tea consumption increases the rate of fat loss (rather than mere water loss or muscle loss).
Both of these ingredients should be found in a serious, modern fat burner.
They are absolute staples.
The problem here is the doses.
The 5omg of caffeine anhydrous found in Meeka Gold Rush might give some users a little kick, especially those who are sensitive to caffeine.
But for most people, 50mg is nowhere near enough to make a difference to your energy levels.
The best fat burners provide about 300mg of caffeine anhydrous split over an entire day (usually 3-4 servings).
This ensures that you stay focused and energized all day long.
Meeka Gold Rush falls short of the mark here.
The 200mg of green tea is also well below what we would expect to see in a fat burner with a premium price tag.
For us, 300mg is the absolute minimum baseline, unless we’re dealing with a particularly powerful extract.
For all the [potential good that caffeine and green tea can do, the doses here render them pretty much useless.
There is really only one drawback with Meeka Gold Rush, aside from the small serving sizes of the key ingredients.
But that drawback is a big one.
Aside from the caffeine anhydrous and green tea, the ingredients in Meeka Gold Rush simply don’t do anything.
Garcinia Cambogia is often said to be a powerful appetite suppressor.
However, we are yet to see any compelling evidence for this.
Some clinical trials have found that it makes meals seem more satisfying, but not necessarily more filling.
Studies are few and far between, but none of them definitively show it as having a suppressing effect on hunger, food cravings, etc.
It is, for want of a better word, a dud.
Acai Fruit doesn’t seem to do anything at all of interest.
There is no reason for us to think that Grapefruit Powder will accelerate fat loss or make dieting easier. There is no scientific (or even broscientific) evidence supporting this one.
None at all.
The same is true of apple cider vinegar and kelp powder.
Some people swear by apple cider vinegar. Reading some health food blogs is incredible; according to some, apple cider vinegar is a cure for everything from diabetes to insomnia.
Unfortunately though, there is a lack of any clinical evidence for these claims.
Even if there was, 50mg of apple cider vinegar powder isn’t going to do a great deal.
In buying Meeka Gold Rush, you’re paying for more dead weight than effective ingredients.
That is totally unacceptable.
Meeka Gold Rush Side Effects
There isn’t much to be worried about here in the way of side effects.
The ingredients in Meeka Gold Rush are all pretty benign.
That means that they don’t do much of anything, good or bad.
So while you won’t get much good out of this stack, you are unlikely to come to serious harm from using it.
The only two slight concerns here are caffeine anhydrous and kelp powder.
Caffeine obviously has the potential to cause you harm. It is an incredibly powerful stimulant. Small quantities can have massive physiological effects.
A single espresso coffee can leave you feeling shaky and dizzy unless you have a good tolerance, and that provides just 40-60mg of caffeine.
There are few natural stimulants so powerful.
Common side effects of caffeine consumption include:
- Light headedness
- Elevated heart rate
- Shortness of breath
The long term health risks of consuming a lot of caffeine can be serious. The most serious is the higher risk of heart disease that comes with chronic caffeine overconsumption.
That said, the 50mg found in Meeka Gold Rush is not a very large serving.
Most people will be fine with this soert of dose, assuming they don’t have a pre-existing condition which puts them at particular risk.
If you do have any kind of pre-existing medical condition (such as a weak heart) or a low tolerance for stimulants, then it is best to avoid all products containing caffeine.
The addition of kelp powder is also a bit of a mystery to us.
Not just because it has no proven benefits, but because it is known to have some side effect risks.
Kelp powder is thought to potentially affect your thyroid gland.
Kelp powder is usually high in iodine, and supplementing with large doses of iodine can adversely affect your thyroid function.
Your thyroid gland is very sensitive; damaging it in any way can have lasting, potentially life threatening consequences.
Remember, we are not doctors.
This is not medical advice.
Just because Meeka Gold Rush looks like it will be safe for 99% of people does not mean that it will definitely be safe for you.
Do your own research, and get a proper medical opinion before continuing.
Meeka Gold Rush Review Conclusion
The short answer to that question is a resounding “no”.
The long answer is “not unless you want to spend that much on a cup of green tea”.
The only active ingredients in this stack are caffeine and green tea leaf.
Their serving sizes are small, and the other ingredients are pretty much worthless.
In buying this product, you are effectively paying premium prices for the same stuff you will find in a few cups of green tea.
The use of kelp powder, which has no independently verified benefits, just makes things worse.
We have nothing to gain from this substance, but some very worrying health risks to consider.
If you want value for money, look elsewhere.
