Is It Effective?There is a lack of scientific evidence supporting a conclusion that Akavar is effective for weight loss. No adequate research studies have been performed and published. The Akavar Web site claims that its effectiveness has been proven in a published clinical study. However, the name of the study (or even where or when it was published) is not provided. Even if it is assumed that this study is valid, it was a very small study -- too small to make any definite conclusions.

Dosing InformationThe manufacturer of Akavar recommends a specific dose, despite the fact that a safe and effective dose for many of the active ingredients in the supplement has not been established.

Side EffectsBecause Akavar products have not been adequately studied, very little is known about the possible side effects. Based on the caffeine content of the supplement, it is reasonable to assume that the following stimulant-related side effects are possible:
- High blood pressure (hypertension)
- A rapid heart rate (tachycardia).
