Research shows some promise for 310 Shakes, or at least protein and some ingredients used in the formula.
- Obesity Reviews – A review of research conducted in 2018 that found meal replacements are effective for weight loss.
- Nutrients – Research shares promising results in obese women using whey-based supplements.
- Adipocyte – There’s also evidence-based on decades of research that shows protein helps muscle growth and recovery, which supports metabolic function.
The suggested serving is one scoop, once or twice daily. Supposedly, it helps you lose weight by suppressing appetite.
The parent company is Las Vegas-based 310 Nutrition.
The Better Business Bureau awards them an A rating with a 2.64-star customer rating based on 25 customer reviews. There are also 32 customer complaints closed in the last three years and four complaints closed in past 12 months.
These complaints seem to center around their sample offering. It appears that a few people signed up for that sample without noticing that they were authorizing a charge of over a hundred dollars two weeks later.
It seems that, at the very least, 310 needs to make that section a little more prominent.
Other 310 Shake reviews cite the 310 Shake taste as a reason for complaint. While some 310 Shake flavors seem to satisfy more than others, the 310 Shake taste seems a significant focus area.
