Cytodyne's Taraxatone


Cytodyne's Taraxatone is an all-new higher strength version of the original herbal definition formula.  It provides a potent blend of natural nutrients including magnesium, uva ursi, dandelion, hydroxanthine complex (green tea, yerba mate), horsetail extract and TX-HP (celery seed powder, parsley powder, taurine). Taraxatone has been developed specially for competitive bodybuilders to reduce excess water weight and rev up metabolism.

The botanicals uva ursi, dandelion and horsetail are natural plant diuretics. One study indicates that dandelion leaves have similar diuretic effects to the diuretic drug furosemide (Lasix®). Uva ursi and horsetail have been used in traditional herbal medicine for kidney and bladder problems. Magnesium is an essential mineral that can help relieve symptoms of edema.

The hydroxanthine complex contains potent methylxanthines green tea and yerba mate, standardized to 120 mg caffeine. Research suggests that methylxanthines boost the metabolism and calorie burning (thermogenesis) and improve mental and physical performance. Caffeine is also a natural diuretic. The addition of taurine helps regulate blood sugar levels, allowing for a steady release of energy.


Taraxatone is specially formulated for competitive bodybuilders to achieve a hard, lean appearance.

Taraxatone has the following benefits:

  • Eliminates excess water weight
  • Boosts the metabolism
  • Stimulates calorie burning
  • Enhances performance and energy


Since edema may be a sign of a more serious disease, individuals should see their doctor to establish a diagnosis.
Green tea may cause insomnia, trembling, anxiety, and urinary frequency. If you regularly drink coffee or caffeinated beverages, Taraxatone should be taken in place of your caffeinated beverages, not in addition to them. Individuals that are sensitive to caffeine's stimulant effects should avoid taking Taraxatone.
Some people may experience itching, nausea or GI (gastrointestinal) upset with uva ursi.

For some people, magnesium may cause diarrhea.
People with a confirmed sensitivity to inulin fiber found in dandelion should not take Taraxatone.
Pregnant or lactating women, people with pre-existing medical conditions or those taking medications should consult a physician before taking Taraxatone.
