Limnitrix Burnz

Seeking an intense weight loss supplement? Limnitrix Burnz is an over the counter diet pill that promises to be a “super intense fat burner” and the “ultimate plateau-destroyer.” This extreme fat burner was developed for both men and women by Limnitrix and can currently be purchased on the official Limnitrix website for $34.95.

Just How Intense is It?

That’s a good question and one that the manufacturer does not answer, at least not when this Limnitrix Burnz review was written. That said, it claims that the benefits of taking this product include:

  • Thermogenic fat burning
  • Decreased appetite
  • Enhanced metabolism
  • Increased energy and focus

Since the manufacturer provides next to no information about this weight loss aid, it’s up to the ingredients to shed some light on the intensity of this formula.

Limnitrix Burnz Supplement Facts

According to the supplement facts on the bottle, the Limnitrix Burnz ingredients include:

  • Caffeine
  • Choline Bitartrate
  • L-Carnitine Tartrate
  • VitaShure(R) Caffeine SR
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid
  • Denrobium 4:1
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Huperzia Serrata

This product contains two doses of caffeine per 1 capsule serving (200 mg of caffeine anhydrous and 50 mg of VitaShure (R) Caffeine SR). These stimulant ingredients are likely why the manufacturer claims this product is an intense fat burner.

Research has found that caffeine can stimulate metabolic rate. Caffeine has also been linked to increased energy and mental focus. While these benefits may be useful to an individual who is working towards a weight loss goal (for instance, by helping them to get the most out of their workouts), ingesting too much caffeine can increase the risk of unwanted side effects. These adverse effects can derail progress by causing other problems, which is a potential issue for those who take Limnitrix Burnz.

Potential Side Effects

The directions are to take 1 capsule in the morning with 8-12 ounces of water and 1 capsule with 8-12 ounces in the mid-afternoon. Users should avoid taking this product 6 hours before bedtime.

The reason this warning is given is that taking stimulants, such as caffeine, too close to bedtime, can disrupt sleep or lead to insomnia. Other possible side effects that could arise from taking this amount of caffeine (500 mg per daily dose) are:

  • Jitters
  • Restlessness
  • Mood changes
  • Headache
  • Upset stomach
  • Rapid heartbeat

In fact, due to the amount of caffeine in this diet pill, there is a good chance that even those who are not typically sensitive to this ingredient may experience negative side effects.

While you should certainly consult with your doctor prior to taking Limnitrix Burnz, if you should decide to give this product a try, it would be in your best interest to avoid ingesting other foods or beverages that also contain stimulants while you are on it.

Quadralean Thermo

Quadralean Thermo is a thermogenic diet pill that has been developed to support weight management, provide natural energy, appetite support and intense focus. Marketed as an all-in-one thermogenic weight management and metabolism booster, the official product page currently sells this nonprescription diet pill for $31.97, at least it did at the time that this Quadralean Thermo review was written.

A Formula Composed of Four Blends

All the Quadralean Thermo ingredients are split up into these four different blends:

  • Weight Management Blend
  • Energy Blend
  • Neuro Blend
  • Thermogenesis Blend

That said, the actual ingredients that can be found within the formula include:

  • Innobio
  • L-Carnitine Tartrate
  • Natural Caffeine
  • Choline Bitartrate
  • Alpha GPC
  • Grains of Paradise
  • Cayenne Pepper Fruit Extract

Scientifically Proven Ingredients Claim

Although the manufacturer makes a variety of claims about the different ingredients in Quadralean Thermo, the two that it claims are scientifically proven to “kick start your metabolism for optimal weight management” when combined, are Grains of Paradise and Cayenne Pepper.

The belief is that grains of paradise can help to decrease inflammation, destroy certain bacteria and help to burn body fat. Some studies suggest that ingesting this herb daily may help to reduce body fat by preventing the accumulation of visceral fat.

Cayenne pepper is thought to be beneficial with helping to curb appetite, speed up metabolism and help in the burning of calories. Studies have found that it does have a variety of metabolic health benefits, especially in regard to weight loss in obese individuals.

All that said, it is important to bear in mind that even though there have been studies conducted on these ingredients and some of this clinical research has found promising results, this does not mean that either of these ingredients have been scientifically proven to aid in or cause weight loss. Furthermore, even if this were the case, no studies have been conducted on Quadralean Thermo to prove that it offers similar benefits.

Weight Loss Requires More Than Diet Pills

Remember that after you have carefully considered if Quadralean Thermo is right for you, it is important to keep in mind that taking this product alone will not lead to weight loss. You need to decide if it is the right fit for your conventional weight management strategies.

If you’re not certain that it or any other dietary supplement is ideal for your dieting and exercise goals, it would be best to consult with your doctor to discuss your health and your options.

Phen24

Phen24 is a nonprescription diet pill designed to provide 24 hour weight loss support and is an OTC (over-the-counter) alternative to prescription diet drugs like Phentermine. There is both a daytime and a night time formula and each one has been specially crafted with specific ingredients to help dieters seeking additional help with their conventional weight loss plan (healthy diet and regular exercise) in reaching their weight loss goals with greater effectiveness and speed. The full Phen24 system has been created to assist in the burning of fat, boosting energy, enhancing metabolism, lowering food cravings and helping you to sleep better at night.

More specifically, the daytime formula has been designed to increase metabolism to boost calorie burn and weight loss, give you more energy to help you power through your exercise and further boosting your metabolic rate, and burn more calories to help make weight loss a smooth and continual process. At the time that this review was written, the ingredients in Phen24 Day included: Caffeine, Cayenne Powder, Iodine, Zinc Citrate, Guarana Extract, Phenylalanine, Manganese, Copper Sulphate.

As for the night time formula, it lowers evening cravings to help you stay on track with your diet, it boosts night time metabolism to break down fats, carbohydrates and proteins even as you sleep, and since it doesn’t contain any stimulants, it promotes better sleep. When this review was created, the ingredients in Phen24 Night included: Glucomanan, Biotin, Molybdenum, Thiamine, Green Tea Extract, Griffonia Extract, Chromium Picolinate, Choline Bitartrate, Pantothenic Acid, Pyridoxine HCl, Ascorbic Acid, Hops Extract.

Users are instructed to take 1 Phen24 Day capsule in the morning with breakfast and to take 2 Phen24 Night capsules 15 minutes prior to their evening meal with 1 to 2 glasses of water. Furthermore, it is recommended that users eat early dinners due to the fact that late dinners can contribute to more belly fat. This product is meant to be used in conjunction with a healthy calorie-reduced diet and regular exercise.

When this review was written, a one month supply of Phen24 cost $84.99 and included two bottles: one Phen24 Day bottle containing 30 pills and one Phen24 Night bottle containing 60 pills. It could also be purchased from the official Phen24 product site.

Although many of the ingredients within Phen24 are commonly used in the OTC weight loss industry and many have been clinically studied, be advised that there is no guarantee that taking these products will contribute to measurable weight loss. Also, be advised that while the night time formula does not contain stimulants the daytime one does. Therefore this dietary supplement may not be the best choice for anyone who has sensitivity to stimulants like caffeine.

Prior to taking Phen24 it is advised that you first speak with your healthcare provider, especially if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, are nursing, or have a current medical condition or are taking any medications.

Alphamine

Alphamine is a thermogenic powder that is mixed into water. Therefore, instead of taking pills, those who use this dietary supplement from PEScience, make a drink that supposedly helps them to burn fat. It is meant to be used in combination with regular exercise and a healthy diet to help an individual burn more calories than they would by engaging in only conventional weight loss methods.

Alphamine is comprised of two blends. These include the FIT Performance System [(Choline Bitartrate, Alpha-Hydroxy-Isocaproic Acid, Eucommia Ulmoides (Leaf) Extract (98% Chlorogenic Acid), Olive (Leaf) Extract] and the Ergo-Thermogenic System [Caffeine Anhydrous, Nelumbo Nucifera (Seed) Extract (Standardized for Higenamine), Yohimbe (Bark) Extract]. These two systems combined make up the Alphamine FIT Matrix.

Basically, this fat burning product is made up of amino acids and stimulants. Both work together to increase metabolism and activate thermogensis (burns fat to generate heat in the body). The official product page for Alphamine on the PEScience website makes particular note of the two ingredients choline Bitartrate and olive leaf. However, while it notes that these two particular ingredients are an important part of the formula, it actually provides no details as to why this is.

For instance, the site says “we could write an article on the importance and biological functions of choline in the body,” but provides no actual information, not even stating what benefit this particular ingredient brings to the formula. This is also the case with olive leaf. The site talks about it as being “one of the most underrated ingredients today” and that it “holds numerous beneficial properties,” but fails to elaborate on what these beneficial properties are. The lack of information and studies leaves one wondering about the efficacy of this product.

Although none of the ingredients in Alphamine have ever been proven to cause weight loss, it does contain caffeine, which has been proven to increase alertness and fat burning. Be that as it may, 1 scoop of the mix contains 125 mg of caffeine, which is about equal to an 8oz cup of coffee. Users are instructed to assess their tolerance by first taking only 1 does (1 scoop of the powder mixed with 4-5oz of water) before breakfast for the first couple of days. After this point, they can take a second dose 5 to 6 hours later and eventually take a maximum of 3 scoops per day (2 in the morning 1 in the afternoon).

Taking the maximum dose means ingesting a lot of caffeine, which increases the risks of certain unwanted side effects such as jitters, sleeplessness, anxiety, restlessness, headache, upset stomach, etc. What’s more, caffeine isn’t the only stimulant in this mixture. It also contains Yohimbe bark. Additionally, the ingredient higenamine acts like a stimulant and can cause some parts of the body to relax and other parts, like the heart, to speed up, which could cause rapid heartbeat.

It would be wise to avoid ingesting caffeinated products (ex. coffee, tea, cola, etc.) while taking this product and to first speak with your healthcare provider before taking Alphamine.

When this review was written, a single tub of Alphamine (a 4-week supply) cost $49.99 and came in three flavors: Raspberry lemonade, Cherry Limeade, and Fruit Punch.
