Phenternin, also known as Phenternin Hoodia, is a dietary supplement that is meant to help a person lose weight by suppressing their appetite. Its only active ingredient is Hoodia. While this may not sound very revolutionary, Phenternin claims that it is the top-rated hoodia supplement because it contains real hoodia gordonii.

The sole active ingredient in Phenternin is Hoodia Gordonii, which is considered to be pure hoodia. The makers of Phenternin claim that the pure hoodia they use in their formula comes from the specific region in South Africa where the plant that contains the appetite suppressing qualities only grows. Pure hoodia gordonii contains P57, which researchers believe is what causes appetite suppression.

P57 is a molecule that is believed to affect the hypothalamus in the brain. This is the part of the brain that is responsible for appetite control. The hoodia in Phenternin supposedly releases a chemical that is like glucose, which tricks the hypothalamus into thinking that enough food has been ingested, so the brain thinks that hunger has been satisfied.

To prove the authenticity of its product, Phenternin provides consumers online access to its various certificates of authenticity and permits, such as USDA protected plant permit, South African Government Certificate of Authenticity, CITES certificate, and Phytosanitary permit, on its official website.

While it does appear that Phenternin does contain a pure form of hoodia, and may indeed be a better choice than some of the other hoodia supplements for weight loss on the market, the one major problem is that there is no solid proof that pure hoodia causes appetite suppression. There isn’t enough conclusive scientific evidence to prove that it does or does not work. This means there is no guarantee that Phenternin will suppress appetite.

In addition, while no major side effects have been linked to hoodia, it may not be safe for everyone to take. This product is for adults only and pregnant women should avoid taking this product. Furthermore, women who are breast feeding, and anyone with an existing medical condition or who may be taking any other medications or supplements, should first speak with their healthcare provider before taking Phenternin.

At the time this review was written, one bottle of Phenternin containing 90 pills cost $44.99. It is recommended for users to take 1 pill 30 to 60 minutes before each major meal, 3 times daily, with an 8 ounce glass of water. A maximum of 6 pills can be taken per day. For the most effective weight loss results, this product is meant to be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise plan. Talk to your doctor if you think Phenternin is right for you.


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.


Phentamedrazine is an OTC weight loss pill that has been designed to suppress a person’s appetite. Manufactured by LabQ2, this product has been marketed as an alternative to prescription diet drugs, such as Phentermine and Adipex. The claim is that this dietary supplement can assist with reducing hunger, which could be very beneficial in helping an individual who is seeking to lose weight, control their appetite.

For best results, Phentamedrazine is meant to be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise plan. Users are instructed to take one capsule prior to breakfast or a morning workout and a second capsule in the middle of the afternoon. Users are also cautioned not to take this product in the evening.

In addition, on the LabQ2 website, users are warned not to exceed 4 capsules per day, but another site advertising the pill says not to exceed more than 2 pills per day, which seems more sensible. Either way, this is conflicting information. That being said, when this review was written, a single bottle containing 60 capsules cost $79.99.

Usually, you can tell a lot about a diet pill product based on its ingredients; however, the Phentamedrazine ingredients list has not been provided. In fact, at the time this review was written, a basic supplement facts sheet wasn’t available on the manufacturer’s sales page or anywhere else. Naturally, this raises a few concerns about the product and calls its integrity into question.

Of course, the main issue about not knowing a diet pill’s formula is you have no idea if its ingredients are safe or if they are beneficial for weight loss. Claiming that Phentamedrazine can help you lose weight and suppress your appetite isn’t enough. A manufacturer needs to provide more than unsubstantiated claims if they want their product to appear credible.

With that in mind, even without knowing its ingredients, it is highly likely that this product contains at least one stimulant and a strong enough dose of one that it could lead to side effects. The reason is that users are cautioned not to take this product in the evening, which suggests that if they do, it could interfere with their sleep. This is a common warning for OTC weight loss pills that contain stimulants, such as caffeine.

It is in your best interest to steer clear of this product altogether. It’s not worth the money or the potential health risk when you can talk to your doctor about safer and more effective weight loss options.
