Phentarmine is marketed as an alternative to the prescription diet drug Phentermine and the capsules are even blue and white. While it works to provide similar benefits to the prescription drug, it lacks the negative aspects, such as the harsh side effects associated with Phentermine, such as addiction.
Phentarmine capsules contain a Phentarmine Proprietary Blend, which includes the following ingredients: Umbrella Arum Seed Powder (Glucomannan), Bitter Orange Fruit Extract, Lithium (as Lithium Orotate), and Black Pepper Fruit Extract. Each of these ingredients is believed to be advantageous for weight loss.
Glucomannan turns into a bulky fiber when it is ingested and absorbs water. It is believed that it can help to slow the body’s absorption of sugar. Also, since it expands, it may provide a feeling of fullness, helping to control hunger. Eating less helps a person to ingest fewer calories.
Bitter Orange Extract is a stimulant that can boost energy and help augment metabolic rate. In some people it may even provide hunger suppression.
Lithium Orotate is believed to lower stress levels and anxiety. It may help lower the hormone cortisol, which has been connected to rapid weight gain in the mid-section.
Black Pepper Fruit Extract is said to enhance metabolism and assist the body in burning fat and calories at a rate that is faster than normal.
In spite of the information provided about each ingredient, there is no solid evidence given that can back up any claims that the manufacturer has made about this weight loss product. In other words, there is no guarantee that taking this diet supplement will lead to fat loss.
Even though the official product page for Phentarmine capsules claims that there are no side effects, this is a false statement, because this product can cause side effects, especially because it contains bitter orange, which has been linked to adverse effects, such as high blood pressure and fainting, and even stroke and heart attack in extreme cases, particularly when combined with caffeine. It is strongly recommended that you speak to your medical practitioner before taking this product.
