  • Marketed as an alternative to Ionamin

  • No ingredients list easily visible to research formula

  • Claims to suppress the appetite for an extended time period

  • Best to avoid this product without knowing what's in it
  • Ionimine is an over-the-counter (OTC) diet pill that has been designed to suppress the appetite. If the name of this product sounds familiar, it might be because you are thinking of the prescription diet drug Ionamin, an anorectic drug for weight loss containing phentermine, which is combined with a resin to create a slow release formula. Although this particular diet drug is still sold, it is not available in the U.S. Based on its name, Ionimine was clearly marketed as an OTC alternative to Ionamin.

    At the time this review was written, the Ionimine formula was a mystery. In other words, an ingredients lists nor a simple supplement facts sheet was not available for this product manufactured by LabQ2. All that is known is that it is a natural supplement that does not contain ephedra, amphetamines, or speed and that it is used as an oral appetite suppressant in combination with a diet and exercise program for weight loss.

    It is almost laughable that what appears to be the official product page of Ionimine actually states “Don’t take risks with your health. Only order from sites with the Good Manufacturing Practices seal.” Meanwhile, the site provides you with no useful information about the product that would help to support that it is safe and effective for weight loss, such as an ingredients list or studies proving that it works. Therefore, while, yes, the site proudly shows off its GMP certified seal, beyond that, it leaves little to be desired.

    In spite of there being no ingredients list, there is a strong possibility that Ionimine contains at least one stimulant, and a large enough quantity that it could affect sleep. This assumption is based on the warning given to users not to take the pills in the evening. Usually, the only OTC weight loss pills that provide this warning are those that contain stimulants, such as caffeine.

    As for dosage recommendations, users are instructed to take 2 capsules per day (1 prior to breakfast or morning exercise and 1 in the mid-afternoon). No more than 2 capsules should be taken per day. When this review was written, one bottle of Ionimine cost $89.99

    While it would be wise for anyone interested in taking Ionimine to consult with their doctor prior to taking this product, even though it can be purchased without a prescription, you are strongly urged to not purchase this product at all. A lack of an ingredients list is never a good sign. There are other far more reputable OTC phentermine alternative options on the market that are worth your time and money compared to this product.
