PX Pro Xanthine

PX Pro Xanthine is a thermogenic weight management supplement from Finaflex. Claiming to be “the next generation in weight loss supplementation,” this diet pill will supposedly provide you with everything you need to get through your day, including energy, focus, and appetite suppression.

The Power Behind PX Pro Xanthine

What is in the PX Pro Xanthine formula that supposedly makes it such a super thermogenic that can help you power through your day? According to the supplement facts, this formula is composed of an Antioxidant Energy Matrix and Mood Support. Each contained multiple ingredients as follows:

Antioxidant Energy Matrix:

  • Caffeine
  • IrisinXD (Green Tea Leaf Extract and Cocoa Seed Extract)
  • Blueberry Powder
  • Theobromine
  • Theacrine
  • Rauwolifia vomitoria Extract

Mood Support:

  • L-Phenylalanine
  • Schisandra chinensis Extract
  • AMATEA Guayusa Extract
  • Huperzia serrata Extract

The directions are to take 1 capsule (1 serving) 1 to 2 times per day. The first serving should be taken immediately upon waking up and the second serving should be taken 6 hours later. No more than a maximum of 2 capsules should be taken daily. The percent daily values of the PX Pro Xanthine ingredients per serving are based on a 2,000 calorie diet.

Plenty of Stimulants to Give a Boost, But…

The ingredients in PX Pro Xanthine show that there are certainly enough stimulants (caffeine, green tea, cocoa, theobromine, theacrine) that effect the central nervous system to likely increase mental alertness, thermogenesis and metabolism. That being said, due to the fact that they are combined as part of the Antioxidant Energy Matrix, it’s not known how much of each is present in the formula per serving. In other words, there is no telling just how beneficial taking this diet pill might be in terms of providing a safe and effective energy boost that would be useful for weight loss.

That being said, considering the combined ingredients in the Matrix is 453mg – and the majority of the ingredients are stimulants – there is the potential risk of unwanted stimulant-related side effects. This is especially likely if two capsules are consumed daily. For the average healthy adult, ingesting too much caffeine (usually more than 400 mg per day) can lead to unpleasant side effects. Some of these side effects may include:

  • Headache
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Nervousness
  • Racing heartbeat

Users who take this nonprescription diet pill are cautioned not to consume other products containing caffeine or stimulants while taking it and are warned not to use it for more than 8 weeks consecutively.

When this PX Pro Xanthine review was written, one bottle containing 60 capsules sold for $29.95 on the official Finaflex website.

PhenFire 375

PhenFire 375 is a powerful thermogenic weight loss management supplement that can be purchased without a prescription. According to its official product page, it is “fast becoming the Number 1 Replacement for ‘Phen’ products.”

A Formula with Stimulant, Thermogenic and Diuretic Ingredients

PhenFire 375 has been “specially formulated” with three types of ingredients – stimulants, thermogenics, and diuretics – to reduce body fat. More specifically, each pill contains:

  • 1,3,7, Trimethylxanthine
  • N-Methyltyramine
  • Taraxicum
  • Bioperine
  • Capsicum
  • Vitamin B Complex (vitamins B1, B5, B6, B12)

Each of these ingredients was selected because they are believed to provide certain benefits to individuals seeking weight loss.

For instance, 1,3,7 trimethylxanthine, which is just a fancy way of saying caffeine anhydrous – or simply caffeine – is a stimulant that research has found can boost energy and improve mental alertness. Some research has even found it to have reduced hunger in some people.

N-Methyltyramine is believed to encourage the release of norepinephrine, which helps to support energy levels and enhances metabolic rate. Bioperine and capsicum help to encourage thermogensis, which is a process that uses fat cells to boost body heat. B vitamins are said to assists with fat burning. Taxicum is a diuretic, which helps to expel excess water from the body.

Aside from caffeine being proven to improve alertness and energy, there is no solid clinical evidence that any of these ingredients will assist in weight loss. Unfortunately, this means that there is no guarantee that PhenFire 375 is an effective product for weight loss.

Negative Effects of Which You should Be Aware

Due to the fact that PhenFire 375 contains caffeine, as well as thermogenics and a diurectic, there is the potential for some negative side effects. For starters, caffeine increases the risk of:

  • Insomnia
  • Jitters
  • Anxiety
  • Heart palpitations
  • Mood swings
  • Headache

These adverse effects are a particularly a risk for individuals who are sensitive to this stimulant or who ingest other caffeinated products (ex. cola, coffee, tea, energy drinks), while taking PhenFire 375.

Another major issue is this pill’s diuretic factor. When taking diuretics, the major risk is dehydration and heat stroke, which can occur from not ingesting enough water to compensate for the amount you are losing. Furthermore, the risk of dehydration is higher with this product because not only does it contain an actual diuretic, which will naturally encourage the body to rid itself of excess water via urination, but caffeine can also be a diuretic, when too much is ingested. This, coupled with its thermogenic properties, means that likely the biggest risks when taking PhenFire 375 is dehydration and overheating. Take care to stay well hydrated if you take this product.

Other Things to Consider

Furthermore, it is important to point out that when taking diuretics you are likely to lose a build up of excess water which can lead to a quicker slimmer appearance and a few pounds reduction on the scale. Do keep in mind that losing water is not the same as losing fat. Water weight fluctuates and you will continue to lose and gain it.

PhenFire 375 is meant to be used in conjunction with diet and exercise. Talk to your doctor before taking this weight loss supplement.

When this review was written, one bottle of PhenFire 375 cost £44.99 ($68.00) and came with a money-back guarantee.

PhenFire 375 Update June 2020

PhenFire 375 is off the market. At least, it was not available for sale online in the US as of June 2020. Clearly this product that was once “fast becoming the Number 1 Replacement for ‘Phen’ products” didn’t have what it took to stick around for the long term.

To be honest, this doesn’t come as much of a surprise considering there is absolutely nothing within this formula that stands out as being unique or revolutionary. At the end of the day, it was just another diet pill in a long list of other unproven OTC weight management aids that tried to prove itself as a nonprescription Phentermine alternative and failed.

Ultimately, if you are interested in choosing a diet pill that is a nonprescription Phentermine alternative, what you need to understand is that this product does not exist. The best course of action is to look for a product that contains a limited number of scientifically researched ingredients, does not make false claims, and is manufactured by a reputable company that stands by its products and will offer you a full money-back guarantee if you’re not satisfied.

Fen-72

Fen-72 is a non-prescription weight loss supplement that has been designed to provide weight loss results and is a 72 hour detox formulation that aids users in jump starting their diet and helps them to stay on target with their weight loss goals.

According to the official website for Fen-72, the formula is comprised of powerful detox and fat burning ingredients that work to clean the body of toxins and undigested waste to transform it into a fat burning machine. Apparently, by ridding the body of toxins, metabolism is enhanced and this will help the fat burning ingredients to work most effectively.

Multiple Diuretic Ingredients

The Fen-72 formula contains the following ingredients:

  • Uva Ursi
  • Alchemilla Vulgaris
  • Dandelion Root
  • Cuminum Cyminum
  • Buchu
  • Mentha Longifolia
  • Glucomannan

One simple look at these ingredients already raises a few red flags for this product. The reason is it contains multiple diuretics.

Dandelion Root, buchu, and uva ursi are all diuretics or have diuretic properties. This means that they work to clear excess fluids from your body. More specifically, diuretics like dandelion increase urination frequency. Some people believe that this is good because they think diuretics help to detoxify the body, flushing it of toxins, as well as reducing water weight, swelling, and bloating.

You Don’t Need to Detox with a Diuretic

The reality is that you don’t need a diuretic or any other detox agent to detoxify your body. You already possess the organs that naturally do this for you, such as your kidneys and liver to name a couple. Furthermore, while diuretics may help to lower your water weight, this is only a temporary effect. You will eventually gain the weight back.

What’s more, if you are not careful to replace the water that you lose when taking a diuretic like Fen-72, you increase your risk of dehydration, which can be quite dangerous for some people. In addition, the risk of dehydration is also increased with this product because it contains glucomannan, which relies on water to function proper. Therefore, you need to considerably increase your water intake for both this ingredient and the diuretics.

Fen-72 is not a practical weight loss solution. It is clearly designed for the short-term, and there is no proof that it provides any real weight loss benefit, or that it is safe to take. It is a good idea to first speak with your medical practitioner before considering this product.

When this review was written, one bottle of Fen-72 (30 capsules) cost $19.99.

Fen-72 Update – May 2020

Fen-72 is no longer a diet pill that you can purchase from any reputable online store. It has been discontinued. Therefore, even if you should happen to find it for sale somewhere on the Internet, it would certainly be in your best interest to avoid purchasing this product. This isn’t only because it has been discontinued and there’s no telling how old the ingredients in the formula may be, but also because this was never a good diet pill to begin with.

Be Wary of Diet Pills Primarily Composed of Diuretic Ingredients

One of the ways in which dubious manufacturers pretend that their diet pills help with weight loss is to add several diuretic ingredients to the formula, which results in the user losing water weight. Rapidly losing excess water weight can make you appear slimmer in a matter of days or even hours. In fact, not only can diuretics make you appear slimmer, when you step on the scale, you might notice a reduction in a couple of pounds as well. While at first this may be exciting to see, this weight that you have lost will return as body water weight naturally fluctuates. Moreover, losing water is not the same as losing fat, which is the true goal of long-term weight loss.

Additionally, while diuretics are generally safe, they are not without side effects. For starters, their primary side effect is an increase in urination and sodium loss. This can lower potassium levels in the blood as well as cause dehydration, headache, dizziness, thirst, increased blood sugar, muscle cramps, etc. When taking diuretics, like those in the Fen-72 formula, you need to make sure that you are adequately replenishing the water you are losing so that you do not become dehydrated. What’s more, you should not take OTC diuretic supplements for any length of time without first consulting with your healthcare provider.

Ultimately, any non-prescription diet pill that has a formula similar to Fen-72 should be avoided. Choosing a quality weight management product, with few and clinically researched ingredients from a reputable brand, is always the better option.

 

Pyroxamine

Pyroxamine is a thermogenic fat burner from MYOKEM. It is packaged in a sleek black bottle with white and bright green accent colors. A single bottle of 60 capsules sold for $49.99 on the official MYOKEM site when this Pyroxamine review was written.

A “High-performance” Thermogenic Fat Burner

Pyroxamine is marketed as a “high-performance multi-factor thermogenic weight loss agent.” A thermogenic is a substance or microorganism that can increase the body’s ability to generate heat. These substances increase heat through metabolic stimulation. Essentially, all enzymatic reaction in the human body is thermogenic. Thermogenesis impacts basil metabolic rate.

In terms of what Pyroxamine can do, the manufacturer claims that it can provide the following benefits:

  • Enhances energy smoothly and cleanly
  • Reduces appetite
  • Speeds up fat loss
  • Sharpens mental focus
  • Elevates mood
  • Increases metabolic rate

On the official site it also says that this diet pill features “scientifically calculated doses of high-quality ingredients designed to help you lose weight.”

Pyroxamine Key Ingredients

There are several ingredients in the Pyroxamine Thermo-Focal Matrix. That said, the key ingredients highlighted by the maker of this formula include:

  • Caralluma Fimbriata
  • Grains of Paradise Extract
  • Teacrine
  • Caffeine
  • Evodiamine
  • Cognizin Citicoline
  • Bacopa Monnieri Extract

On the plus side, the manufacturer has taken the time to include the individual quantities of each ingredient used in the formula and has also explained how each of the key ingredients are believed to benefit individuals seeking to lose weight. That being said, there is no scientific evidence provided to backup claims and no citations to studies. Furthermore, a statement such as “scientifically calculated doses” means absolutely nothing in terms of guaranteeing quality, efficacy or safety.

It Does Contain Thermogenic Ingredients

However, not all is at a loss for the Pyroxamine formula. While none of the ingredients have been clinically proven to aid in long-term measurable fat loss, caffeine is a thermogenic and its thermogenic and metabolic effects have been studied.

That being said, while caffeine may provide a boost in metabolic function and even enhance mental alertness and focus, for some, these benefits are outweighed by unpleasant side effects, such as jitters, restlessness, anxiety and insomnia among others. This means that Pyroxamine may not be right for you if you have a sensitivity to stimulants or are currently taking other medications, supplements or have a pre-existing health condition that could negatively interact with caffeine or any of the other ingredients in the formula.

Ultimately, it would be in your best interest to consult with a healthcare professional prior to taking Pyroxamine.

Limnitrix Burnz

Seeking an intense weight loss supplement? Limnitrix Burnz is an over the counter diet pill that promises to be a “super intense fat burner” and the “ultimate plateau-destroyer.” This extreme fat burner was developed for both men and women by Limnitrix and can currently be purchased on the official Limnitrix website for $34.95.

Just How Intense is It?

That’s a good question and one that the manufacturer does not answer, at least not when this Limnitrix Burnz review was written. That said, it claims that the benefits of taking this product include:

  • Thermogenic fat burning
  • Decreased appetite
  • Enhanced metabolism
  • Increased energy and focus

Since the manufacturer provides next to no information about this weight loss aid, it’s up to the ingredients to shed some light on the intensity of this formula.

Limnitrix Burnz Supplement Facts

According to the supplement facts on the bottle, the Limnitrix Burnz ingredients include:

  • Caffeine
  • Choline Bitartrate
  • L-Carnitine Tartrate
  • VitaShure(R) Caffeine SR
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid
  • Denrobium 4:1
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Huperzia Serrata

This product contains two doses of caffeine per 1 capsule serving (200 mg of caffeine anhydrous and 50 mg of VitaShure (R) Caffeine SR). These stimulant ingredients are likely why the manufacturer claims this product is an intense fat burner.

Research has found that caffeine can stimulate metabolic rate. Caffeine has also been linked to increased energy and mental focus. While these benefits may be useful to an individual who is working towards a weight loss goal (for instance, by helping them to get the most out of their workouts), ingesting too much caffeine can increase the risk of unwanted side effects. These adverse effects can derail progress by causing other problems, which is a potential issue for those who take Limnitrix Burnz.

Potential Side Effects

The directions are to take 1 capsule in the morning with 8-12 ounces of water and 1 capsule with 8-12 ounces in the mid-afternoon. Users should avoid taking this product 6 hours before bedtime.

The reason this warning is given is that taking stimulants, such as caffeine, too close to bedtime, can disrupt sleep or lead to insomnia. Other possible side effects that could arise from taking this amount of caffeine (500 mg per daily dose) are:

  • Jitters
  • Restlessness
  • Mood changes
  • Headache
  • Upset stomach
  • Rapid heartbeat

In fact, due to the amount of caffeine in this diet pill, there is a good chance that even those who are not typically sensitive to this ingredient may experience negative side effects.

While you should certainly consult with your doctor prior to taking Limnitrix Burnz, if you should decide to give this product a try, it would be in your best interest to avoid ingesting other foods or beverages that also contain stimulants while you are on it.

PhenRx PM

PhenRx PM claims to provide appetite suppression, improved metabolism function, fat burning, and “extreme” weight loss. Since it has been developed for nighttime use, it is also supposed to provide increased HGH and enhanced REM sleep. It is manufactured by Nexgen Biolabs.

PhenRX PM Facts

At the time this PhenRX PM review was written, a bottle containing 30 capsules (a one month supply) cost $34.97 on the product page of the official Nextgen Biolabs site. The recommended dose is to take 1 capsule 30 minutes before bed.

Each of the capsules are made up of the following ingredients:

  • Green Tea Extract
  • Magnolia Bark Extract 20:1
  • Phosphatidylsrine
  • Coleus Forskholi
  • Raspberry Ketones
  • L-Theanine
  • 7-Keto DHEA
  • Gamma-aminobutyric Acid
  • Melatonin
  • Black Pepper Extract

Based on the above ingredients, it may seem strange that PhenRx PM contains green tea extract, which contains caffeine (a stimulant), as this appears to conflict with the manufacturer’s non-stimulant statement.

However, the amount of caffeine is insufficient and is unlikely to boost energy or increase the risk of stimulant-related side effects. Moreover, keep in mind that there is a difference between the terms “non-stimulant” and “stimulant-free,” the latter of which means that a product is entirely without stimulants, which the manufacturer did not claim.

Therefore, unless you are incredibly sensitive to stimulants, it is unlikely that the amount of caffeine that may be present in the green tea of this formula will affect you in any way that would disrupt your sleep.

Clinical Evidence is Lacking to Support Claims

That being said, while the manufacturer did not make any false claims regarding its product and stimulants, the official product page for PhenRx PM does not provide any studies that prove this product is actually safe or effective for weight loss or for enhancing sleep. Interestingly enough, it does go into detail regarding some of the benefits of taking the formula and how it works, but it offers zero evidence to support its statements.

For instance, the manufacturer says that PhenRX PM not only burns fat, it can curb food cravings by stabilizing insulin levels and blood sugar so that you do not wake up feeling hungry. Additionally, this product is supposed to promote deep and restful R.E.M. sleep that increases the body’s natural release of human growth hormone (HGH). This hormone blocks cortisol and can lead to even more fat burning while also preserving lead body weight.

However, the primary ingredient in PhenRX PM is green tea and while it may not have enough caffeine to cause negative side effects in the average individual, clinical evidence in regard to the health benefits it can provide the human body and its positive effects on weight loss are lacking. Further study is still required.

Too Good To Be True

Thus, there is no guarantee that this product will work as the manufacturer claims, which is disappointing. After all, if the product could actually help target fat loss on stubborn areas of the body, enhance fat burning, suppress appetite, boost thyroid levels, significantly reduce BMI, and help users fall asleep and remain in a deep sleep, this would be nothing short of amazing. Unfortunately, without sound scientific evidence such claims only make the product sound too good to be true.

Additionally, it should be noted that it is unlikely that taking a diet pill before you go to sleep will aid with added fat burning or appetite suppression while you sleep. The best nonprescription diet pills are developed to work in conjunction with a calorie-conscious diet and regular fitness appropriate exercise to help support your weight loss strategies so that you can get the most out of them. In other words, with a PM diet pill like this one, you are not likely to burn more than the normal calories you would naturally burn while you sleep.

Finally, the fact that the company has used “RX” in the name of its product is a shady practice in itself as RX refers to prescription medication, which this is clearly not.

Still, if you should decide that you would like to add a nighttime diet pill to your weight management strategy, before taking PhenRx PM (or any other PM diet pill), you should first speak with your healthcare provider. This is particularly important if you have an existing health condition, you are currently taking any other types of supplements or medications, are taking other supplements for weight loss, or are pregnant or nursing.

Apidextra

Apidextra is a non-prescription diet pill that is supposedly a “clinical strength weight loss supplement” that delivers fast powerful weight loss results. It has been designed to:

  • Burn fat
  • Suppress appetite
  • Amplify metabolism

These benefits sound very promising, especially for dieters who are seeking this type of support for their weight loss efforts. However, it’s one thing for a manufacturer to claim that its nonprescription diet pill can provide these benefits and another for their claims to actually be true.

The best way to find out if there is any truth to the claims is to examine the ingredients.

Five “Powerful” Ingredients

According to the official product page for Apidextra, the formula contains five powerful and “scientifically proven ingredients”. These include:

  • Greenselect Phytosome Green Tea
  • Irvingia Gabonensis
  • Green Coffee Bean Extract
  • Coenzyme Q10
  • Caffeine Anhydrous

However, at the time this review was written, the amounts of each ingredient contained within the formula and whether or not there are other ingredients was not provided on the site.

Ingredients Have Been Tested, Not Proven

While it is true that the ingredients found within Apidextra have been scientifically tested, they have not been clinically proven to be effective for weight loss.

That being said, according to the official Apidextra site, some research has found that these ingredients do offer certain benefits. For instance:

  • Green tea extract can boost metabolism in some people and help with fat burning.
  • Irvingia Gabonensis showed in one study that it has the potential to burn fat and reduce appetite.
  • Green coffee bean is believed to be an effective fat burner and boosts fat metabolism.
  • Coenzyme Q10 supposedly increases metabolic rate and burns calories.
  • Caffeine anhydrous can provide an energy boost and suppress appetite in some people.

Thus, while this research does suggest these ingredients do show some promise in terms of being beneficial in assisting certain individuals in losing weight, there is no solid evidence that proves them to be effective. Moreover, the official product page did not include any citations to this research to backup its claim.

Therefore, while the official product page for Apidextra proclaims “The fact is Apidextra works!” and that the “formula is even more powerful than the most prescribed diet pills that work,” these statements lack credibility because they are not based on anything. The diet pill itself has never been tested.

Additionally, it is important to note that making such a tall claim that a dietary supplement can be even more powerful that most prescribed diet pills is nothing short of ridiculous. There are no legal or recognized nonprescription alternatives to Adipex-P (phentermine), which this diet pill is clearly trying to pretend to be with a name like “Apidextra.” Unlike FDA-approved diet drugs, Apidextra is not a treatment for obesity or weight loss.

Apidextra Side Effects

As for side effects, the main concern is that the formula contains more than one stimulant, which can increase the risk of unpleasant side effects such as:

  • Insomnia
  • Jitters
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Mood swings
  • Rapid heartbeat

For this reason, anyone who takes Apidextra should avoid ingesting other products with stimulants and should refrain from taking this product too close to bedtime to avoid problems. Research has shown that excess caffeine consumption can be potentially harmful.

With that said, prior to using this product, it would be wise to play it safe and consult with your healthcare provider, even if you don’t have existing health conditions and are not taking medications.

When this Apidextra review was written, a one-month supply containing 60 capsules cost $49.95 and came with a 90-day money-back guarantee. Users are instructed to take 1 to 2 capsules daily: one capsule before breakfast and one capsule before lunch or before exercise.

Update – March 2020

If you are in search of Apidextra, you won’t find it for sale anywhere online today. This diet pill isn’t on any digital shelves likely because it has been discontinued. This is probably for the best due to the lack of information there was to back up the claims that were made about it.

There are other nonprescription diet pills on the market today of better quality and integrity that can help offer you support for your dieting and exercising weight management goals. Just remember that it is best not to trust any OTC product that claims to be just as good as or better than diet drugs.

Quadralean Thermo

Quadralean Thermo is a thermogenic diet pill that has been developed to support weight management, provide natural energy, appetite support and intense focus. Marketed as an all-in-one thermogenic weight management and metabolism booster, the official product page currently sells this nonprescription diet pill for $31.97, at least it did at the time that this Quadralean Thermo review was written.

A Formula Composed of Four Blends

All the Quadralean Thermo ingredients are split up into these four different blends:

  • Weight Management Blend
  • Energy Blend
  • Neuro Blend
  • Thermogenesis Blend

That said, the actual ingredients that can be found within the formula include:

  • Innobio
  • L-Carnitine Tartrate
  • Natural Caffeine
  • Choline Bitartrate
  • Alpha GPC
  • Grains of Paradise
  • Cayenne Pepper Fruit Extract

Scientifically Proven Ingredients Claim

Although the manufacturer makes a variety of claims about the different ingredients in Quadralean Thermo, the two that it claims are scientifically proven to “kick start your metabolism for optimal weight management” when combined, are Grains of Paradise and Cayenne Pepper.

The belief is that grains of paradise can help to decrease inflammation, destroy certain bacteria and help to burn body fat. Some studies suggest that ingesting this herb daily may help to reduce body fat by preventing the accumulation of visceral fat.

Cayenne pepper is thought to be beneficial with helping to curb appetite, speed up metabolism and help in the burning of calories. Studies have found that it does have a variety of metabolic health benefits, especially in regard to weight loss in obese individuals.

All that said, it is important to bear in mind that even though there have been studies conducted on these ingredients and some of this clinical research has found promising results, this does not mean that either of these ingredients have been scientifically proven to aid in or cause weight loss. Furthermore, even if this were the case, no studies have been conducted on Quadralean Thermo to prove that it offers similar benefits.

Weight Loss Requires More Than Diet Pills

Remember that after you have carefully considered if Quadralean Thermo is right for you, it is important to keep in mind that taking this product alone will not lead to weight loss. You need to decide if it is the right fit for your conventional weight management strategies.

If you’re not certain that it or any other dietary supplement is ideal for your dieting and exercise goals, it would be best to consult with your doctor to discuss your health and your options.

Xentrafen

Xentrafen is an over the counter (OTC) diet pill. It comes from Nexgen Biolabs. According to the manufacturer, Xentrafen provides those who are seeking to lose weight several benefits. These include:

  • Targeting fat and lipid metabolism on stubborn areas of the body
  • Energy boosting
  • Fat burning
  • Appetite suppression
  • Mental focus
  • Enhancing metabolic function

Xentrafen supposedly helps you control your cravings and targets and blasts away body fat in stubborn areas of the body where it is hard to lose weight. This includes areas like your buttocks, love handles, stomach, thighs, and legs. It is also supposed to help you lose cellulite.

Beware Bogus Claims

While there may be some substance to a few of the claims made about the Xentrafen formula, such as its potential to boost energy, increase mental focus, enhance metabolic function and help to control appetite, it won’t target any specific area of fat on your body. Furthermore, it will not help you lose cellulite.

The reason is that when the body burns off fat, fat is lost all over. There is no specific area that you can target. Typically, the place where you will lose fat first is the area of your body that holds the greatest amount of fat. For the majority of people (but not all) this is their stomach.

As for the cellulite claim, that is no known diet pill (prescription or non-prescription) that can help to eliminate or reduce the look of cellulite. For most people, once you have it, it’s there forever. Certain dermatological treatments (e.g. laser, cryolipolysis, etc.) may help improve the look of it, but even those are not permanent, according to research.

Additionally, do not let this manufacturer trick you into thinking for a moment that taking only Xentrafen will lead to fat loss. Weight loss occurs when you burn more calories than you consume, which means that this product needs to be taken in conjunction with a healthy calorie-conscience diet and regular exercise to deliver any true benefit at all.

The Xentrafen Proprietary Formula

As for its ingredients, every Xentrafen capsule is made up of the following propriety formula:

  • 1,3,7 Trimethylxanthine (caffeine anhydrous)
  • Synephrine HCl
  • N,N-Dimethyltyramine
  • Schizandrol A
  • 5-Hydroxytryptophan
  • Yohimbine HCl.

In spite of providing the ingredients list, no other information was given about this formula on the official product page at the time this Xentrafen review was written. Without any studies to backup the claims made about this diet pill, there is no solid scientific evidence that proves this product is effective or safe for weight loss.

Additionally, it should be noted that this weight loss supplement contains multiple stimulants within its formula. As such, there is a risk of unwanted side effects, including jitters, the shakes and sleep disturbances. Although not everyone who takes this product will experience these adverse effects, the risk of experiencing them (or others not listed) increases in those who are sensitive to these substances or who consume other products (foods, beverages or supplements) containing stimulants (e.g. caffeine).

When this review was written, a single month supply of Xentrafen sold online for $44.99. While this is certainly not the cheapest OTC diet pill on the market, it is not the most expensive either. That said, if you feel that this is a product that is worth your time and money to try, it would still be in your best interest to consult with your healthcare provider before taking it to be on the safe side.

Xentrafen Update March 2020

Xentrafen appears to have been discontinued. The official product page cannot be found and even popular retailers, like Amazon, that once sold it, do not have it in stock. You can still find information about the product and read customer reviews, but in all other ways it appears to have disappeared from existence.

Considering the false claims that the manufacture made about the product being able to target specific areas of fat on the body and the claims about cellulite, it is for the best that Xentrafen is gone to make room for more reputable products. Products with unachievable claims such as these are frequently short-lived. You will find that there are plenty of other respectable non-prescription diet pills available with fewer stimulants that can help you reach your weight loss goals.

Phentirimine

The name of this non-prescription diet pill is not only similar to the name of the prescription drug, but its white and blue colored capsules have clearly been designed to mimic its appearance, as well.

No Ingredients Listed

The ingredients in the Phentirimine formula are unknown. When this review was written, there was absolutely no information about this diet pill’s ingredients on its marketing page or anywhere else. This automatically raises some obvious concerns about this product. Without a list of ingredients, it instantly makes one wonder what the manufacturer has to hide. Furthermore, it means that is impossible to believe any claims that are made about this product being beneficial for weight loss.

What is Known About the Phentirimine Formula

All that is known about this diet pill formula is that it contains no amphetamines, it is an appetite suppressant, it is GMP certified, and you don’t need a prescription to buy it. In other words, virtually nothing is known about it. There isn’t even any mention of side effects. In fact, users are simply directed to contact their doctor if they notice adverse effects.

That being said, according to the directions for this dietary supplement, users are instructed to take 1 capsule before breakfast or prior to morning exercise and 1 again in mid-afternoon, but should not take a pill in the evening. Thus, although it isn’t officially stated, based on the instruction not to take the pills in the evening, it is likely that Phentirimine contains at least one stimulant powerful enough to risk side effects that could disrupt sleep or cause insomnia.

For instance, there is a good chance that it may contain caffeine as studies have linked this stimulant to sleep disturbances.

Users are warned not to exceed more than four capsules per day, and it is suggested to those who weigh less than 150 pounds to take half the recommended dose for the first week. At the time this review was written, a 30 day supply (60 capsules) cost $79.99.

Due to the severe lack of information about this product there is no way to know if Phentirimine is safe or effective for weight loss. In short, this diet pill cannot be trusted. Therefore, purchasing this product is not recommended. However, if it is something that interests you, talk to your doctor about it first and find out the information you need to know.

Update February 2020 – Phentirimine is Unavailable

Not surprisingly, as of February 2020, Phentirimine can not be found for sale online. The product sales page no longer exists and these diet pills are not sold on Amazon or at any other online retailer, reputable or otherwise.  That said, it is for the best that this dietary supplement, which was marketed as a Phentermine alternative, is no longer available for sale. This is especially true since it lacked credibility even when it was around.

Take Care to Scrutinize the Diet Pills that Interest You

Phentirimine is only one of many OTC diet pills that lack integrity. Today, just as was the case years before, you can’t be too careful when it comes to selecting an over the counter diet pill that you would like to try. For this reason, it is important that you keep the following in mind when you make your selection:

Read the Ingredients

Make sure the diet pill you are considering has an ingredients list. If you cannot easily find out what is in the formula of the product, it’s not worth your time, money or risking your health over. A reputable manufacturer will be transparent about the formula of its diet pill. Knowing the ingredients is important not only to research their potential benefits, but to make sure that you do not have any allergies to the substances or that they will not negatively interact with other medications or supplements you may be taking.

Investigate the Claims

It’s not good enough for a manufacturer simply to claim that its product is a non-prescription alternative to Phentermine, or to imply this through the product name, as was the case with Phentirimine. For starters, you should not trust any manufacturer who claims that their product is a Phentermine or Adipex OTC alternative, because these supplements do not legally exist.  Secondly, don’t just take a manufacturer at its word that its diet pill will deliver certain benefits. Have a look at the ingredients list and check to see what scientific studies have found in regard to the potential advantages they might offer individuals seeking to lose weight.

Research the Company that Manufactures the Product

Finally, have a look at the company who stands behind the product. Do they have an official webpage? Have there been complaints about them? What other products do they make? What do customers have to say?

Do your best to protect yourself when searing for the best OTC diet pills. Don’t ever settle for a third-rate and potentially unsafe weight loss aids like Phentirimine. You have plenty of better options.
