Is Zynamite a Scam? - TLDR

Partial Scam
Partial Scam 

SUMMARY:  It is our opinion that this probably should be a scam, but we have a lower bar for ingredients you can feel, since you can try them yourself and be the judge. Zynamite is the trademark name for a mangifera indica (mango leaf) extract. The website frequently compares Zynamite to caffeine calling it a "Caffeine replacement" as do brands using this product. However, none of the research directly compares Zynamite to caffeine, it's all misdesigned studies against a placebo. The studies were designed to get a positive outcome for marketing claims, not to answer whether Zynamite is actually better than caffeine. It could be better, it could be worse no one knows because these studies were not done correctly.

We would be very skeptical of Zynamite, maybe try buying one serving to see how it works for you before you commit to more. 

Agree with our opinion? Disagree? Either way, be sure to let the FTC know here.

What is a TLDR review?

A full ingredient review takes weeks to research and weeks to write up as they are 2000–4000 words in length. We love the research part but don't have a full mastery of the English language and loathe the writing. TLDR means "Too long, didn't read". We are going to try doing the same research and just writing a summary. If an ingredient gets enough views, we will expand this to a full write-up. We hope this allows us to give our opinion on more ingredients and prioritize novel new ingredients that just launched.
