About Alpha Rush Pro
Alpha Rush Pro claims to be a scientifically advanced fat burning and energy building supplement that can help men and women burn fat, increase energy, shed weight quickly, block fat from being made, and transform their body. Because of this, Alpha Rush Pro’s manufacturer claims that it represents a “new breakthrough in weight loss.”
In order to accomplish this, Alpha Rush Pro is claimed to contain a 100% natural blend of antioxidants, green tea, caffeine, garcinia cambogia, and orange extract, and to be completely ephedra free.
Sure, Alpha Rush Pro might sound like great, but before you hand over your hard-earned money, consider the following:
Is Alpha Rush Pro Clinically Proven to Help You Lose Weight?
The quick answer: Neither Alpha Rush Pro nor its ingredients have any clinical evidence showing that they can help you lose weight.
In order to back up their claims, the Alpha Rush Pro website attempts to link to 2 studies on their website, although both of these were broken at the time of our research.
The detailed answer: There is insufficient clinical evidence showing that green tea or caffeine can help you lose weight. In addition, as we’ve written about on multiple occasions, garcinia cambogia is an overhyped ingredient that has almost zero clinical evidence showing that it can provide any kind of benefits, weight loss or otherwise.
While we’re not provided any information about the “orange extract” contained in Alpha Rush Pro, it very likely references bitter orange, which also has insufficient clinical evidence showing it to provide any weight loss benefits.
Finally, keep in mind that ephedra was banned in the US in 2003, so it’s not necessarily a benefit that Alpha Rush Pro doesn’t contain it; the manufacturer is simply complying with the law.
Alpha Rush Pro Side Effects
According to WebMD (as anyone who’s drank too much coffee knows), caffeine can lead to “insomnia, nervousness and restlessness, stomach irritation, nausea and vomiting, increased heart rate and respiration, and other side effects.”
Furthermore, “bitter orange is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when taken as a supplement for a medical purpose such as weight loss. Bitter orange, particularly when taken with stimulants such as caffeine or caffeine-containing herbs, increases the risk for high blood pressure, fainting, heart attack, stroke, and other severe side effects. There are reports that bitter orange can trigger headaches, including migraine and cluster headaches, in some people. Bitter orange can cause sensitivity to the sun.”
Customer Reviews for Alpha Rush Pro
There were several in-depth customer reviews for Alpha Rush Pro at the time of our research:
A Bodybuilding.com forum thread, where most responses advised that the supplement should be avoided.
In addition, there were 7 customer reviews on Amazon, with an average rating of 3.7 stars. While some customers claimed to have experienced great results and rated the supplement 5 stars, it’s important to note that several of these came from accounts that reviewed many of the same products, which is a strong indication that they might be fake.
With this said, among all of these 5-star reviews, they referenced only the energy that Alpha Rush Pro provides, not any weight loss results.
Outside of these, all other Alpha Rush Pro reviews we found online were created by affiliates (here's one), which just contain more marketing hype from the manufacturer. As such, they’re typically put together just to mislead instead of inform.
From a company perspective, Alpha Rush Pro is manufactured by Verticality Advertising LLC based out of Las Vegas, NV, who also manufactures a similar supplement named Fat Burn X. Unfortunately, neither the company nor their supplements were listed with the Better Business Bureau.
Alpha Rush Pro Pricing & Refund Policy
Alpha Rush Pro is only available through a 14-day trial for $4.95 S&H, for which you’ll receive a full 30-day supply of the product.
Then, once your trial expires, you’ll be billed $87.63 for the full price of the product and will also be enrolled in the company’s autoship program. This means you’ll continue receiving a regular supply of Alpha Rush Pro once every 30 days and your credit card will be billed $87.63 each time.
Important note: It’s our experience that autoship programs and free trials are only intended to suck you into making an ill-advised purchase and then to keep sending you a product you probably didn’t want in the first place. As such, we generally recommend avoiding products sold only through these methods.
Outside of the 14-day trial, no refunds are available for Alpha Rush Pro.
With this said, in order to cancel your trial or your autoship enrollment, you’ll need to contact customer service at 855-826-7861.
Is Alpha Rush Pro Right for You?
Chopping to the point: Considering the lack of clinical evidence showing that any of its ingredients can help you lose weight (and that some may be harmful to your health), as well as the fact that it’s only available through a free trial and autoship program, it’s our opinion that Alpha Rush Pro is a scam and should be avoided.

This company is a scam
Watch out! This company is a scam!
I purchased the product and paid for two bottles in full. I then canceled as per the guidelines. They then debited more money and sent more product after I canceled.
Then they wanted me to pay to send the product back to them. I sent it back as return to sender as I do not feel I should pay for their mistake. It has been three months now, and I am still chasing my money.
Be warned! Do not go near this company and most certainly DO NOT give them your banking details.
I am taking the matter further with the bank as they have taken my money illegally.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friendView all 1 commentsHide comments

Definitely a SCAM. Even after I terminated during the trial period, they continued to bill me but I NEVER received the products. I have been fighting this for approximately nine months through First Progress Mastercard and the company. This Mastercard has been of no help. The company has tons of the same bad reviews, and yet continues to falsely advertise and get away with it. Why doesn't the FTC and others do something?

I tried it, it didn't work for me and I called - no answer. So I texted them to stop taking money out of my account for this stuff. The product quit coming but they continued taking out payment. So now in order to stop them I had to close out my account. They just deducted another payment today and when I checked I closed it. They haven't given back the last two months of payments that I asked for, nor have I received any product. When I called they wouldn't answer. Looks to be a scam unless they return my money. I didn't want the stuff and they kept withdrawing from my account.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Alpha Rush is a scam. Do not buy this product as it does not work. Not to mention they advertise that they give you 14 days trial period, which is not enough time, but they really only give you 10 days and then they reach into your bank account and take your money. Just another way for them to screw you out of your hard earned money.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
