Pyroxamine

Pyroxamine is a thermogenic fat burner from MYOKEM. It is packaged in a sleek black bottle with white and bright green accent colors. A single bottle of 60 capsules sold for $49.99 on the official MYOKEM site when this Pyroxamine review was written.

A “High-performance” Thermogenic Fat Burner

Pyroxamine is marketed as a “high-performance multi-factor thermogenic weight loss agent.” A thermogenic is a substance or microorganism that can increase the body’s ability to generate heat. These substances increase heat through metabolic stimulation. Essentially, all enzymatic reaction in the human body is thermogenic. Thermogenesis impacts basil metabolic rate.

In terms of what Pyroxamine can do, the manufacturer claims that it can provide the following benefits:

  • Enhances energy smoothly and cleanly
  • Reduces appetite
  • Speeds up fat loss
  • Sharpens mental focus
  • Elevates mood
  • Increases metabolic rate

On the official site it also says that this diet pill features “scientifically calculated doses of high-quality ingredients designed to help you lose weight.”

Pyroxamine Key Ingredients

There are several ingredients in the Pyroxamine Thermo-Focal Matrix. That said, the key ingredients highlighted by the maker of this formula include:

  • Caralluma Fimbriata
  • Grains of Paradise Extract
  • Teacrine
  • Caffeine
  • Evodiamine
  • Cognizin Citicoline
  • Bacopa Monnieri Extract

On the plus side, the manufacturer has taken the time to include the individual quantities of each ingredient used in the formula and has also explained how each of the key ingredients are believed to benefit individuals seeking to lose weight. That being said, there is no scientific evidence provided to backup claims and no citations to studies. Furthermore, a statement such as “scientifically calculated doses” means absolutely nothing in terms of guaranteeing quality, efficacy or safety.

It Does Contain Thermogenic Ingredients

However, not all is at a loss for the Pyroxamine formula. While none of the ingredients have been clinically proven to aid in long-term measurable fat loss, caffeine is a thermogenic and its thermogenic and metabolic effects have been studied.

That being said, while caffeine may provide a boost in metabolic function and even enhance mental alertness and focus, for some, these benefits are outweighed by unpleasant side effects, such as jitters, restlessness, anxiety and insomnia among others. This means that Pyroxamine may not be right for you if you have a sensitivity to stimulants or are currently taking other medications, supplements or have a pre-existing health condition that could negatively interact with caffeine or any of the other ingredients in the formula.

Ultimately, it would be in your best interest to consult with a healthcare professional prior to taking Pyroxamine.

Phenastin NAEX

Phenastin NAEX is a type of diet pill designed for individuals who are seeking a non-prescription product, who would like something to help them with their weight loss strategies and who do not want to take a product that contains stimulants.

Benefits of Phenastin NAEX

This natural weight loss aid claims to provide many benefits. Among these benefits include:

  • Powerful appetite suppression
  • Blood sugar stabilization
  • Improvement of lipid metabolization
  • More weight loss compared to diet and exercise alone
  • Stimulant-free

Being a stimulant-free product, Phenastin NAEX can be taken later in the day as it does not contain ingredients that can lead to sleep disturbances. Moreover, it should also not cause side effects such as jitters, anxiety, rapid heartbeat, etc. As such, this may make it more of an ideal product for individuals who are sensitive to high quantities of stimulant ingredients like caffeine. 

Key Ingredients

The key Phenastin NAEX ingredients within the formula include:

  • Green Tea
  • Gymnema Sylvestre
  • Griffonia Simplicifolia
  • Caralluma Fimbriata
  • Dandelion Extract
  • Grains of Paradise

On the plus side, each of those ingredients are well known within the over-the-counter diet pill industry and they have been clinically studied. For instance, some studies have found that green tea may lower the amount of fat you absorb from foods and gymnema sylvestre, which is believed to have potent anti-diabetic properties, may work to suppress sweetness, helping to reduce sugar cravings.

On the down side, the ingredients have not been clinically proven effective for weight loss so there is no guarantee that they will live up the manufacturer’s claims.

Furthermore, it should be noted that this product does actually contain caffeine, which exists in green tea. That being said, it is likely only a very small amount which isn’t likely to produce stimulant effects. This is why the manufacturer has labeled it “stimulant-free” and not “caffeine-free.”

Order a Trial Pack

When this Phenastin NAEX review was created, a single bottle could be purchased on the official product page for $34.99, and was also available in other package formats. Not only that, but you could also purchase a 7-day trial pack to find out if it was right for you. There were two trial options. You could buy only Phenastin NAEX for a one-time fee of $9.99 and free shipping or you could buy this diet pill and the original Phenastin (which does contain stimulants) for $13.99 and free shipping.

While the trial packs are a great way to test to see if this product is right for you, always remember that speaking with your doctor is a good idea. This is particularly important if you have a known medical condition and are currently taking medications to treat health issues.

Appetite Away

Appetite Away is a dietary supplement from 4 Organics that claims to be an natural diet pill that provides users with control over hunger without jitters. Beyond appetite control it offers other potential advantages like increased fat burning, boosted metabolism, decreased fat storage, and provides key nutrients.

More specifically, the supposed benefits of Appetite Away include boosted energy levels, increased stamina, enhanced metabolism, increased conversion of glucose into energy, burns calories and stores fat more efficiently, and works equally for both men and women.

When this review was created, the Appetite Away ingredients include: Chromium, Caffeine Anhydrous and a Proprietary Blend (Theobromine, Guarana, Hoodia Cactus Powder, caralluma fimbriata, Magnolia Bark, Green Tea, Pomegranate Powder, Maca Fisetin, L-Theanine, L-Tyrosine, Banaba, Cha de Bugre, Guggulsterone, Glucomannan).

The directions, according to the Amazon sales page, where this product could be purchased when this review was written, are to take 1-2 capsules to control hunger as needed. Users are cautioned not to exceed more than 4 capsules within a 24 hour period.

Although the Amazon sales page claims that there are no jitters, each capsule contains 200 mg of caffeine anhydrous (caffeine equivalent of about 2 cups of coffee). It also contains another caffeine stimulant, guarana.

With that in mind, if users can take up to 4 capsules per day, this would amount to 800 mg of caffeine in total, which is double the amount of caffeine (about 4 cups of coffee) that is considered safe for individuals who are not sensitive to this stimulant.

In other words, not only is Appetite Away likely to cause jitters and a slew of other unpleasant side effects (e.g. insomnia, rapid heartbeat, anxiety, upset stomach, headaches, etc.) but it could also be dangerous if you took the maximum allowable dose.

Moreover, none of the ingredients in this diet pill have ever been proven effective for weight loss. Also, there are far too many ingredients within this formula for them to be beneficial in a meaningful way, even if they were effective.

Due to there being no official product page for Appetite Away when this review was created and the amount of stimulants in this formula, it would be best for you to consider another diet pill that could help support your appetite suppression efforts, or at the very least, contained less caffeine.

That being said, if you would like to give Appetite Away a try, do speak with your doctor first to make sure it is safe for you to do so.

Carallumanol

Carallumanol is a dietary supplement from MIT Nutra. It is marketed as an extra strength, extreme carb blocker and fat burner. It claims to slow down fat deposits, help suppress appetite, boost energy levels and promote weight loss. Even more interesting, this product contains only one active ingredient: Caralluma Fimbriata.

More specifically, each serving size (2 veggie capsules) contained 1200 mg of Caralluma Fimbriata, when this review was written.

Caralluma is a cactus native to India. Traditionally, Indian tribes would reportedly chew chunks of caralluma to ward off hunger during long hunts. Nowadays, when the chemicals of this plant are extracted and used in dietary supplements, such as Carallumanol, the common belief is that it decreases appetite for weight loss, can block fat storage, and can also increase endurance and quench hunger.

Another common belief is that caralluma can block citrate lyase. This is an enzyme required for the formation of acetyl CoA, which essentially is stored in the body as fat. It also supposedly blocks the formation of Malonyl CoA, another enzyme that is necessary to form fat.

In other words, based on all these claims, caralluma can help you eat less and also prevent the body from storing some fat.

Although it has been researched to determine its effects on weight loss, WebMD notes that there is insufficient evidence that caralluma is effective for weight loss and obesity. It mentions that developing evidence suggests that taking this herb for 60 days may decrease waistline, fat, feelings of hunger, calorie and fat intake. That being said, it does not seem to reduce weight, BMI (body mass index), body fat or hip measurements.

Ultimately, what this means is there is no real scientific proof that taking Carallumanol will lead to appetite suppression, carb blocking, fat block or fat burning. Even if any of these effects happened to occur, they are not likely to lead to measurable fat loss.

In terms of side effects, caralluma is typically tolerated well for short term use (60 days). Common, mild side effects include stomach upset, constipation, intestinal gas and stomach pain. That said, these effects usually subside after a week of use. It is unknown if it is safe to take caralluma over the long term.

The suggested use is to take 2 capsules once, daily. For optimal results, the capsules should be taken 20-30 minutes before a meal with 8 ounces of water. When this Carallumanol review was written, it could be purchased on the official MIT Nutra website for $24.99.

If you are interested in taking Carallumanol, it’s a good idea to first speak with your healthcare provider to ensure that this is a safe option for you.
