PhenRx PM

PhenRx PM claims to provide appetite suppression, improved metabolism function, fat burning, and “extreme” weight loss. Since it has been developed for nighttime use, it is also supposed to provide increased HGH and enhanced REM sleep. It is manufactured by Nexgen Biolabs.

PhenRX PM Facts

At the time this PhenRX PM review was written, a bottle containing 30 capsules (a one month supply) cost $34.97 on the product page of the official Nextgen Biolabs site. The recommended dose is to take 1 capsule 30 minutes before bed.

Each of the capsules are made up of the following ingredients:

  • Green Tea Extract
  • Magnolia Bark Extract 20:1
  • Phosphatidylsrine
  • Coleus Forskholi
  • Raspberry Ketones
  • L-Theanine
  • 7-Keto DHEA
  • Gamma-aminobutyric Acid
  • Melatonin
  • Black Pepper Extract

Based on the above ingredients, it may seem strange that PhenRx PM contains green tea extract, which contains caffeine (a stimulant), as this appears to conflict with the manufacturer’s non-stimulant statement.

However, the amount of caffeine is insufficient and is unlikely to boost energy or increase the risk of stimulant-related side effects. Moreover, keep in mind that there is a difference between the terms “non-stimulant” and “stimulant-free,” the latter of which means that a product is entirely without stimulants, which the manufacturer did not claim.

Therefore, unless you are incredibly sensitive to stimulants, it is unlikely that the amount of caffeine that may be present in the green tea of this formula will affect you in any way that would disrupt your sleep.

Clinical Evidence is Lacking to Support Claims

That being said, while the manufacturer did not make any false claims regarding its product and stimulants, the official product page for PhenRx PM does not provide any studies that prove this product is actually safe or effective for weight loss or for enhancing sleep. Interestingly enough, it does go into detail regarding some of the benefits of taking the formula and how it works, but it offers zero evidence to support its statements.

For instance, the manufacturer says that PhenRX PM not only burns fat, it can curb food cravings by stabilizing insulin levels and blood sugar so that you do not wake up feeling hungry. Additionally, this product is supposed to promote deep and restful R.E.M. sleep that increases the body’s natural release of human growth hormone (HGH). This hormone blocks cortisol and can lead to even more fat burning while also preserving lead body weight.

However, the primary ingredient in PhenRX PM is green tea and while it may not have enough caffeine to cause negative side effects in the average individual, clinical evidence in regard to the health benefits it can provide the human body and its positive effects on weight loss are lacking. Further study is still required.

Too Good To Be True

Thus, there is no guarantee that this product will work as the manufacturer claims, which is disappointing. After all, if the product could actually help target fat loss on stubborn areas of the body, enhance fat burning, suppress appetite, boost thyroid levels, significantly reduce BMI, and help users fall asleep and remain in a deep sleep, this would be nothing short of amazing. Unfortunately, without sound scientific evidence such claims only make the product sound too good to be true.

Additionally, it should be noted that it is unlikely that taking a diet pill before you go to sleep will aid with added fat burning or appetite suppression while you sleep. The best nonprescription diet pills are developed to work in conjunction with a calorie-conscious diet and regular fitness appropriate exercise to help support your weight loss strategies so that you can get the most out of them. In other words, with a PM diet pill like this one, you are not likely to burn more than the normal calories you would naturally burn while you sleep.

Finally, the fact that the company has used “RX” in the name of its product is a shady practice in itself as RX refers to prescription medication, which this is clearly not.

Still, if you should decide that you would like to add a nighttime diet pill to your weight management strategy, before taking PhenRx PM (or any other PM diet pill), you should first speak with your healthcare provider. This is particularly important if you have an existing health condition, you are currently taking any other types of supplements or medications, are taking other supplements for weight loss, or are pregnant or nursing.

Phenadrine Thermo Cut

Phenadrine Thermo Cut comes from Biogen. It is an OTC thermogenic fat burner that boosts energy, increases alertness and also helps to reduce hunger. According to the official product page for this weight management aid, Thermo Cut has “been enhanced with the latest in effective ‘fat burning’ herbs, as well as key nutrients to improve absorption and efficacy of these ingredients.”

The ingredients in Phenadrine Thermo Cut include: Coleus Forskholi, Naringin, Green Tea, Caffeine, Yerba Mate Leaf, L-Tyrosine, Nicotinamide, Gymnema Sylvestre extract, Bacopa Monniera Ext, Evodia Rutaecarpa 10%, Theobromine, Barberry Bark Ext 60%, Curcuma Longa, Bioperine, Caralluma Fimbriata.

There are three major troubling aspects about these ingredients. The first is that there is more than one stimulant (ex. green tea, caffeine, yerba mate leaf, and theobromine), which increases the risk of unwanted stimulant-related side effects like sleeplessness, anxiety, jitters, heart palpitations, moods swings, headache, etc. The second issue is that there are 15 ingredients. With so many ingredients, it is unlikely that there are enough quantities of each to provide any significant benefit. Finally, while they have been clinically studied, there is no solid evidence that any of these ingredients can help a person actually lose weight.

Users are instructed to start by taking 1 to 2 capsules twice per day. Over time, as users assess their tolerance, they can take up to 4 capsules, two or three times daily. It is recommended that users take the pills 30 – 40 minutes before breakfast or a morning workout, 30 – 40 minutes before lunch, and 30-40 minutes before a mid-afternoon meal or workout. Users are cautioned not to take the pills after 4 pm to prevent sleep disruption. To achieve maximum results, the manufacturer recommends that Thermo Cut should be taken for 5 consecutive days and stopped for 2 before continuing the same process.

Due to the dosage suggestion, it seems likely that even if dieters do not take this pill after 4 pm, they are still likely to encourage unwanted stimulant-relates side effects due to the number of stimulants in the formula. Furthermore, taking up to 4 capsules two to three times daily is quite the high dose of stimulants.

At the time this review was written, Phenadrine Thermo Cut was only available for sale in South Africa. That being said, if this pill interests you and you find a way to obtain it, be sure to first consult with your medical practitioner prior to purchasing it to make sure it is the right weight loss aid for you.
