Avaprex is an over-the-counter (OTC) diet pill that works to amplify energy, boost fat metabolism, stimulates fat burning, and may also help to curb hunger. The creators of the product (also called Avaprex) claim to be nutraceutical experts, who have worked hard to design a formula that contains the purest weight loss ingredients and is of the highest quality.
Avaprex is marketed as a safer and non-prescription alternative to popular prescription diet pill Adipex, brand name Phentermine. In other words, it’s just another Adipex alternative with unsubstantiated claims.
At the time that this review was written, a single bottle of Avaprex cost $90.91 on Amazon. Considering this was one of the only places it could be purchased online and due to its high price, as well as the fact that there is no official website, this is very good indication that the product has been discontinued.
With that in mind, the following were the ingredients that were part of the Avaprex formula when this review was written:
- Raspberry Ketone
- Green Tea
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Acai Fruit
- African Mango
- Resveratrol Extract
If you are familiar with popular ingredients frequently used in the OTC weight loss diet pill industry, you likely recognized many of the substances listed above. They have all be touted for their positive effects, such as fat burning, energy boosting and appetite suppression. That being said, regardless of the claims you may have heard about these ingredients, none of them have ever been proven effective in regard to leading to measurable weight loss. Moreover, Avaprex, itself, has never been clinically proven effective.
Caffeine and green tea are the ingredients with the most promise in this formula. Research has found that, in addition to boosting mental alertness, when combined with physical activity, they can help boost metabolism and fat burning. Still, due to the fact that it is unknown how much of each substance is in one serving, there’s no way of knowing just how effective it will be.
Potential Side Effects
It should also be noted that stimulant ingredients can lead to unpleasant side effects, such as headache, jitters, insomnia, etc.
You should also know that other side effects that may occur with Avaprex including:
- Abdominal gas
- Upset stomach
Be that as it may, if Avaprex is an OTC diet pill that you are considering, make sure you consult with your healthcare practitioner before you take it to make sure that it is a smart and safe option for you.
Update: November 2020
As it was assumed at the time the above Avaprex review was written, this OTC diet pill product has been discontinued. Currently, it can no longer be found online for purchase in any of its forms. Amazon still lists the product, but it is “currently unavailable”.
What to Consider Before Buying Another Adipex Alternative
Avaprex isn’t the first diet pill product to be marketed as an over the counter Adipex alternative and it won’t be the last. If you are seeking a nonprescription diet pill that can provide you with the benefits that the prescription weight loss medication phentermine can offer, you should know that no such product truly exists.
There are diet pills available that can offer you support with your weight management efforts, such as engaging in regular fitness-appropriate exercise and adhering to a healthy calorie-conscious diet. These diet pills tend to offer support in regard to fat burning, improved mental focus, boosted metabolism and energy, helping to make it easier to keep up with the efforts that will/are making a difference to your waistline.
To find the best of these weight loss supplement products make sure that the diet pills that interest you are not like Avaprex. In other words, ensure that:
- The product has clinically researched ingredients
- The manufacturer doesn’t make unsubstantiated claims regarding the benefits
- There is an official website for the product
- The price is cost competitive
- There is a money-back guarantee
Not All Clinically Researched Ingredients are Beneficial for Weight Loss
Finally, it’s also worth noting that when you are seeking the highest quality diet pills, it’s not simply enough for a product to contain clinically researched ingredients. Beyond simply using ingredients that have been scientifically studied, it is also important to check if those ingredients have been found to have any potential positive effect on weight management. More specifically, weight loss in humans.
For instance, the main ingredient in Avaprex is Raspberry Ketone. This ingredient is a well-known antioxidant and many believe that this chemical from red raspberries can help with obesity. Although it has been studied, and some research involving animals or test tubes have shown that this ingredient may possibly increase metabolism, boost the rate at which the body burns fat, and lower appetite, there is no reliable clinical evidence that raspberry ketone helps in the improvement of weight loss in humans.
As such, it is important to make sure that the ingredients used in the OTC diet pills that interest you have not only been clinically researched, but that the findings of this research (conducted on human subjects) offer some support to the benefit claims the manufacturer has made about this product.
