Lipo-Phen Advanced

If you’re seeking to boost your energy and burn belly fat while you’re at it, Lipo-Phen Advanced is a carb blocker that might help you maximize your weight loss efforts. It has been designed to help melt away stubborn belly fat through appetite suppression, energy boosting and by preventing your body from digesting fewer carbs and fats from the foods that you eat.

One Lipo-Phen Advanced capsule was equivalent to one serving size and, when this review was written, each capsule contained the following formula: Proprietary Blend 140 mg (Bauhinia Purpurea L Extract, Garcinia Cambogia, Norcoclaurine, HCl, Hemerocallis Fulva, Heat Concentrated Extract, Yohimbe Extract), Caffeine (135 mg).

Based on this ingredients list, at the very least the formula does contain an extensively researched substance: caffeine. This ingredient has been proven to boot mental alertness and it is believed that it can also help to maximize fat burning potential, especially when combined with cardio exercise. However, beyond that, science has yet to determine the true benefits the remainder of these ingredients offer as weight loss aids.

Users are directed to take 1 capsule with 8 ounces of water on an empty stomach prior to breakfast for the first 3 days. A second capsule should be taken 6 – 8 hours after breakfast on the 4th day. Then on the 5th or 6th day, take 2 capsules in the morning and a 3rd capsule in the evening. Users are cautioned not to exceed the recommend dose of 3 capsules per day and are also warned to take a 4 week break from the product after they’ve taken it for 8 weeks.

Considering 1 capsule contains more caffeine than a single cup of coffee, and it is recommended that you eventually take an evening dose of this product, there is a good chance that you could increase your risk of experiencing unwanted side effects such as insomnia, sleep disturbances, jitters, restlessness, anxiety, headache, upset stomach, rapid heartbeat, etc.

As such, Lipo-Phen advanced may not be an ideal weight loss product for you if you have a sensitivity to caffeine. Furthermore, you should not use this dietary supplement if you are pregnant or nursing. Be sure to tell your doctor if you are currently taking any medications (prescription or non-prescription) as well as if you have a pre-existing condition. This is especially important if you are suffering from high/low blood pressure, stroke, thyroid or heart disease, liver/kidney problems, seizures, cardiac arrhythmia, and so on.

Phen Thin MAX

Phen Thin MAX is a non-prescription diet pill that has been created as an over-the-counter (OTC) alternative to Phentermine and similar prescription diet drugs. However, unlike phentermine, this dietary supplement designed for weight loss promises that not only will it help to reduce food cravings and appetite as well as increase energy, but it also supposedly helps you lose weight while you sleep.

The Phen Thin MAX formula is composed of a proprietary blend that includes: Bauhinia Purpurea L. Extract, Garcina Cambogia, Norcoclaurine HCI, Hemerocallis Fulva Heat Concentrated Extract, Yohimbe Extract. The formula also contains Caffeine. Each serving (1 capsule) contains 140 mg of the proprietary blend and 135 mg of Caffeine.

This product contains several ingredients that can be found in many OTC weight loss products including bauhinia purpurea L., which is believed to boost the body’s metabolism and ability to burn calories. It also contains garcinia cambogia, which is believed to prevent the body from making fat and aids in appetite suppression. Norcoclaurine HCl and Hemerocallis Fulva Heat Concentrate are both thermogenics that supposedly help to burn fat through heat energy. Yohimbe and caffeine boost energy, with caffeine also acting as a thermogenic that may even help to suppress appetite.

The suggested dose is to start with 1 capsule for the first three days, which should be taken on an empty stomach before breakfast. On the fourth day, users can increase their dose to 2 pills (the first on an empty stomach prior to breakfast and the second to be taken 6 – 8 hours after breakfast). On the fifth or sixth day, users can increase their dosage to the maximum 3 pills per day (2 pills in the morning and 1 in the evening). For best results, Phen Thin MAX is meant to be taken in conjunction with a calorie-conscious diet and regular exercise.

There is no clinical evidence that Phen Thin MAX will lead to measurable fat loss or any fat loss at all. Caffeine has been scientifically proven to boost mental alertness and can help to increase fat burning when combined with physical activity, but there is no clinical research that proves it will actually cause weight loss.

Furthermore, it is unlikely that this pill will help you lose weight while you sleep. On the contrary, it is more likely that you will suffer from insomnia! One serving of this product contains more caffeine than what is in an average cup of coffee. Possible side effects you might experience while taking Phen Thin MAX include sleeplessness, jitters, anxiety, rapid heartbeat, anxiety, etc.

If you are interested in taking this dietary supplement you would be wise to consult with your healthcare provider as this product contains ingredients that may not be safe for everyone to take.

When this review was written, a bottle of Phen Thin MAX (containing 90 capsules) could be purchased for $19.99 on Amazon.
