LipaVex, from health and wellness company VH Nutrition, is composed of a natural fat burner formula. The claim for this dietary supplement is that it is a thermogenic hypermetabolizer that promotes fat metabolism, decreases body fat levels, enhances energy levels, and boosts thermogenesis.

When this review was created, LipaVex was composed of a Lipavex Proprietary Blend: Coleus Forskholii Root Extract, Fucoxanthin (Seaweed Extract), Garcinia Cambogia, Bitter Orange (synephrine), Green Tea, Tumeric, Ginger, Cassia Cinnamon, Black Pepper. Each serving size of this formula’s proprietary blend contained 1495 mg and 2 capsules made up a single serving.

For optimal results, users are instructed to take one serving (2 capsules) of LipaVex with 12 ounces of fluid in the morning and once again in the early afternoon. Users are cautioned that consuming caffeine or other stimulants while taking this dietary supplement may cause nervousness or hypertension.

The reason is that the formula contains synephrine, a stimulant that is naturally found in bitter orange. Synephrine can enhance the effects of caffeine, boosting the chance of adverse side effects (e.g. insomnia, rapid heartbeat, hypertension, etc.), even in healthy individuals who do not have sensitivity to stimulants.

As for the overall effectiveness of this product, it supposedly works with your body to decrease body fat and promote metabolic activity. If this is true, the potential thermogenic effects of LipaVex can help you burn fat when combined with a healthy workout. As for its possible appetite suppression effects, it could aid with weight loss by helping you control appetite so that you ingest fewer calories.

All that being said, there is no guarantee that LipaVex will help you lose weight. None of the ingredients in its formula have ever been proven by science to be effective or safe for weight loss. Furthermore, on the official product page, it states that LipaVex can “burn belly fat fast.” Statements like these bring the products integrity into question because there is absolutely no guarantee that it will specifically burn belly fat (if it causes any measureable fat loss at all).

LipaVex is meant for healthy adult men and women. Be that as it may, you should still consult with your healthcare provider before taking this dietary supplement. This is particularly important if you are pregnant, nursing, have a medical condition or are taking any medications. When it comes to your health and finding the best weight loss regimen, it is always best to err on the side of caution.

At the time that this review was written, Amazon sold LipaVex for $27.99.


PhenaTrim is a non-prescription diet pill that claims it can suppress appetite and melt away fat without users having to change their diet. This “high performance multi-stage, weight loss formula” will apparently help you to shed pounds and burn off calories without you having to spend hours at the gym. Claiming to provide drastic weight loss for those who are overweight or for those who simply want to lose those stubborn pounds that they just can’t shake, PhenaTrim supposedly burns fats, increases energy levels, decreases overeating, and increases metabolism.

When this review was written, a single bottle of PhenaTrim could be purchased for $21.95. Users are instructed to take 1 capsule 30 minutes prior to breakfast and 1 capsule 30 minutes prior to lunch. Each dosage should be taken with a full glass of water.

The ingredients in PhenaTrim include: . Each of these ingredients is believed to help weight loss. For instance: Vitamin B3, Garcinia Cambogia, DHEA, Fucoxanthin, Guarana

Vitamin B3 is believed to assist with energy metabolism and nervous system function. It is also supposed to be good for digestion, as well as for healthy skin. It can also assist in lowering blood pressure, help promote healthy digestion, and reduce cholesterol triglyceride levels.

Garcinia Cambogia is thought to assist with weight loss when it is combined with a healthy diet and exercise. There have also been studies that have discovered that its HCA content may help to prevent sugar from being transformed into fat.

DHEA is believed to assist in the burning of calories for energy and assists in the blocking of G6PD, a major enzyme that manages the production of fat tissue.

Fucoxantin may improve resting energy expenditure without stimulating the central nervous system. This means that it does not increase the risk of stimulant-related side effects, such as insomnia and jitters.

Guarana may have the ability to boost energy, as well as enhance memory and physical endurance. It is thought that Guarana may also help with fat cell reduction and help a person feel full.

Although everyone of these ingredients have been clinically studied, none of them have been scientifically proven to benefit weight loss. What this means, plain and simple, is that there is no proof or guarantee that taking PhenaTrim will help a person lose weight. In addition, while at the time this review was written the PhenaTrim site stated that you can “lose weight without changing your diet”, the reality is that this weight loss supplement will not work miracles on its own. If you want to shed pounds, regular exercise and a calorie-conscious diet is important for shedding fat.

Moreover, because this diet pill contains stimulants, there is a risk of certain side effects including sleeplessness, jitters, heart palpitation, anxiety, gastrointestinal upset, etc. Therefore, before taking PhenaTrim it would be prudent to first speak with your medical practitioner, to make sure it is safe for you.
