Alright guys, this will be my review on the product RIPTEK v2 by QNT. I received this product through the expert reviewers program. I took this product with my usual taurine, cissus, protein, BCAA's, lypolyze (non stim fat burner), and erase Pro.
I would like to thank QNT for the opportunity to offer a fair and honest review on this product.

Weight Loss (4/10):
The bottle given to me was enough to test this product for roughly 22 days at the recommended dosage of 3 caps twice per day. For the first 12 days of using this product, I kept my diet at a static norm, but for the last 10 days of the run I switched to a slow carb diet, which was basically meat, vegetables, and beans. No fruit, dairy, or white carbs were allowed. I followed my normal exercise routine 4-5 days of weight lifting and little to no cardio ;P
The first 12 days of using this product my weight fluctuated plus or minus 1 lb from daily weighings with my normal weight being 222 lbs. For the last 10 days, following the diet I was on diet with a cheat day as recommended on Saturday.
The first week of slow carb I dropped 4 lbs to 218. At the time I am writing this review, almost through my second week, I am down to about 215-216. Thats a total loss of 6-7 lbs in the 11 days I've been on the diet. This, I think, shows the importance of diet above anything else. I was very strict with my diet days, but on my cheat day I ate whatever I wanted.
Thermo properties/Appetite Suppressant(6/10):
The thermo effect of this product was hit or miss. Some consider thermo feelings to be "side-effects". However, to a certain extent I consider them "working effects." I took doses with food and some without food and didn't really notice any negative effects or consistant increase in body temperature, no noticeable increased heart rate ect.
Appetite Suppressant was noticable but not to the degree that it was once I added the lipolyze into the equation. When I was not following my slow carb diet, I noticed I was getting full faster eating the same portions, and I wasn't particularly hungry in between meals as often.
I did also experience a slight niacin flush from time to time on this product, not saying that's good or bad it just is what it is.
You only had to take this product twice a day, albeit 3 caps each time. They were relatively small so that wasn't a problem at all. Tastewise there really wasn't any, but you could smell the capsicum and pepper in them :)
This is where this product gets a little ridiculous. The cheapest place I could find this was for 43.00 per bottle. That's for a 22 day supply! Two bucks a day for a thermo
fat burner that isn't hot and doesn't make you lose weight that effectively. You can still snap up a bottle of OEP, Recreate, Lean Extreme,ect a thirty day supply for between 30-35 bucks.
This makes Riptek v2 cost TWICE as much as most other products and it doesn't even compare in regards to effectiveness.
I've said in previous reviews that I don't factor in price as much to a final overall rating if the product is effective. Well.....this product is not impressing
or effective in my mind so price most definitely factors in, especially when the price is about twice that of the industry average. I understand that in stores everything cost more, but looking online strictly, it just doesn't compare. Looking through my local GNC's, they carry Testek but not Riptek or Hydravol? I think there may be a reason for that.
I always feel bad for leaving a negative review but I'm not going to lie, this product was ineffective and unimpressive and I wouldn't pay more than 10-15 bucks for what I got from it. For these reasons I cannot recommend this product.
