Dexamine is a stimulant weight management supplement that aims to deliver maximum potency, increased mental energy and focus, as well as fat burning and appetite control. This dietary supplement from Giant Sports International was available for purchase both on its official product page ($29.99) and on Amazon ($18.04), when this review was written.
Each single serving (1 capsule) of the formula is composed of three active ingredients: Caffeine Anhydrous (200 mg), Kigellia Africana Extract (125 mg), Bai Mudan White Tea (25 mg).
Caffeine has undergone extensive study and has been proven to alleviate fatigue, boosting mental energy and focus. Some studies have also shown that when combined with physical activity (especially cardio exercise), caffeine may increase fat burning potential. Some people also find that it works as an appetite suppressant.
Kigellia Africana is most widely known for its effectiveness as a natural herbal treatment for skin conditions ranging from fungal infections to eczema. It is also believed to be a highly potent antioxidant. In terms of weight loss, preliminary animal studies have shown that it may help with fat burning, potentially functioning like a central nervous system stimulant. It may also function as a diuretic.
Bai Mudan White Tea is thought to be rich in antioxidants and is also believed to help prevent the hardening of arteries and removing toxins from the body.
While these ingredients have been studied, none of them have been proven to be effective for weight loss and require further study on the matter. Even in the case of caffeine, which has been found to improve fat burning with exercise, it is important to note that additional fat burning does not necessarily mean this will result in measureable fat loss.
Additionally, due to the fact that this product contains caffeine, there is a greater risk of experiencing certain side effects such as insomnia, jitters, anxiety, headache, rapid heartbeat etc.
The suggested dose is to take 1 – 2 capsules once per day with 16 – 20 ounces of water after breakfast/before noon on an empty stomach. You should avoid exceeding more than 2 pills in any 24 hour period. It is also recommended for users to assess their tolerance when they first start taking Dexamine. Begin with only 1 capsule for the first few days to see how your body responds. If you feel you can handle the maximum 2 capsule dose, you can up your dose. It is important to avoid taking these pills in the afternoon, early evening or at night to avoid sleep disturbances.
To be on the safe side, speak with your healthcare provider before taking Dexamine to make sure it is the best option for your weight management goals.
