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.
The Fen-72 formula contains the following ingredients: Uva Ursi, Alchemlla Vulgaris, Dandelion Root, Cuminum Cyminum, Buchu, Mentha Longifolia, and 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, they 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.
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.
