Fenphedra PM

Fenphedra PM is a diet pill for nighttime weight loss. It is a non-prescription formula that is caffeine-free and could help you to jump start your diet while you’re sleeping. The company behind this dietary supplement doesn’t pretend to promise users that they will obtain overnight weight loss results from taking this product. They also don’t claim that weight loss will occur without exercise.

While it is refreshing to see a company state that their weight loss support dietary supplements are not miracle pills, at the same time, the official product page for Fenphedra PM doesn’t exactly state in what ways the product does aid with weight loss. In fact, beyond the ingredients list and the directions, no other real beneficial information is provided about this PM diet pill.

This means, the only way to really know what type of potential positive effects this pill might have as a weight management aid, is to check out its ingredients.

When this Fenphedra PM review was written, each serving of the formula (2 capsules), contained the following ingredients: Vitamin C (60 mg), Vitamin D3 (800 IU), Chromium (60 mcg), Chromax (500 mcg), GABA (500 mg), Irvingia Gabonensis (300 mg), Magnolia Bark Extract (150 mg), Phellodendron Amurense Bark (150 mg), Melatonin (2.5 mg), LactoSpore (100 Million CFU).

Based on the above list, it’s clear that Fenphedra PM has been primarily formulated with appetite suppressants and herbs that aid in sleep and relaxation. That being said, the three key ingredients include:

GABA – may help to reduce blood pressure and may also play a role in energy balance. It is well-known for calming nervous activity in the brain and may function like a natural tranquilizer.

Chromax – is believed to help glucose metabolism, insulin resistance, appetite control, weight management and energy support.

Irvingia Gabonensis – may lower cholesterol and may also affect fat cells, lowering fat cell growth and boosting the breakdown of fats.

That being said, while none of these ingredients have been proven effective for weight loss, even if they were, they are not likely to do much for you while you sleep. In other words, taking Fenphedra PM is not likely to cause any additional fat burning beyond what you would naturally achieve from sleep alone. Still, the product may be beneficial as a sleep aid, due to ingredients like GABA and melatonin. Studies have linked better sleep with increased fat burning, so there is some benefit to a product such as this.

The recommended dose is to take 2 capsules with 8 to 12 ounces of water, about 1 – 2 hours before bedtime. Users are cautioned not to exceed the recommend dose and not to take this product with alcohol. They are also cautioned not to drive or operate heavy machinery after taking it.

Pregnant and nursing women should avoid taking this product. You should also speak with your doctor prior to taking this product if you are currently taking other medicine or have a known medical condition.

AtraFen PM

Do you wish you could keep burning fat and suppressing your appetite while you get a good night’s sleep? According to Nutratech, you can with their AtraFen PM formula. This dietary supplement has been designed as a stimulant-free weight management and night-time sleep aid.

In addition to making sure that you get restful sleep so you wake up feeling energized and refreshed, it also helps to regulate blood sugar and cortisol for reduced belly fat. Additionally, it can help to lower late night junk food cravings and boost metabolism without the use of stimulants, so there are no jittery feelings or trouble sleeping.

It should be noted that it is recommended for users to take AtraFen PM along with a weight loss regimen that includes a healthy diet, regular exercise and a daytime fat burner, such as one of the daytime AtraFen fat burner products. The idea behind taking both a daytime and night-time AtraFen weight loss aid is to provide 24-hour fat burning.

When this review was written, the AtraFen PM formula was composed of the following Proprietary Formula: Garcinia Cambogia, L-Theanine, Magnolia Officinalis, Phosphatidylserine, Gaba, Melatonin. Each capsule (1 serving size) contains 640 mg of the proprietary formula.

The good news is that AtraFen PM is indeed stimulant-free. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about unpleasant side effects like insomnia, jitters, anxiety, etc. Furthermore, it does contain a few ingredients that may help with sleep, such as melatonin and L-theanine.

On the flip side, although AtraFen PM contains garcnia cambogia, it is unlikely to lead to anymore fat burning nor is it likely to suppress your appetite. The reason is that garcinia cambogia has never been proven to be an effective weight loss aids. As such, this diet pill isn’t likely to help you burn off anymore fat than you naturally would as you sleep.

Regardless of any claim made about this product, the bottom line is that it has never been scientifically studied so there is no proof of its efficacy or even its safety, for that matter. Speaking of safety, simply because it doesn’t contain stimulants, this doesn’t mean it is without side effects. Headaches, dry mouth, dizziness, nausea and digestive upset are all potential adverse effects.

That said, if you are still interested in seeing if you can achieve a 24-hour fat burning experience with AtraFen PM, make sure you consult with your doctor before making this dietary supplement a regular part of your lifestyle.

A single bottle of AtraFen PM sold on Amazon for $35.00 when this review was written.

PhenPhast Advanced

PhenPhast Advanced is a non-prescription diet pill that promises rapid weight loss with its “double –strength” formula. It should come as no surprise that this dietary supplement from NaturaPrime promises appetite suppression. The reason is that the vast majority of over-the-counter (OTC) weight loss products that have the word “phen” in their name are marketed as alternatives to the prescription diet drug Phentermine.

PhenPhast supposedly works as a thermogenic, boosting metabolism and enhancing fat loss. In addition to suppressing appetite it also claims to improve focus and boost energy levels.

The formula consists of a PhenPhast Advanced Complex, which is composed of a 1,000 mg per serving of L-Carnitine, L-Arginine, L-Ornithine, L-Glutamine, Tyrosine, Tryptophan, Beta-Alanine, GABA, Chromium, Hoodia, Grapefruit Powder, African Mango, Green Tea Leaf Extract, EGCG, Panax Ginseng, Glycyrrhizin Extract, Gymnema Sylvestre, Coleus Forskohlii, Grape Seed Extract, Astragalus, and Maca Powder.

Unfortunately, there are no clinical trials to backup any of the claims made about this product. Furthermore, none of the ingredients – not even those that have been proven to improve mental focus and help with fat burning (ex. Green Tea), have ever been scientifically proven to cause weight loss.

Furthermore, it is also important to point out that right on the PhenPhast product label it states that the product is “non-stimulating”. However, you might have noticed in the list of ingredients that it contains Green Tea Leaf Extract which typically contains caffeine. However, the caffeine in green tea is often so mild that it is unlikely to cause the harsher side effects associated with caffeine anhydrous, such as insomnia, jitters, rapid heartbeat, etc. Be that as it may, the product doesn’t tell you how much green tea is in each serving. Still, the term “non-stimulating” is not the same as “stimulant-free”. The product isn’t claiming to be without stimulants only that it won’t cause stimulating effects.

At the time that this review was written, PhenPhast Advanced sold on Amazon for $23.99. Each bottled contains 60 capsules (a one month supply). Users are instructed to take 2 capsules per day with an 8 ounce glass of water. Beyond this suggested use instruction, there are no other directions for users (ex. when to take the pills, if they should be taken together, if they should be taken on an empty stomach or with food, etc.).

Prior to taking PhenPhast Advanced it would be a good idea to first consult with your healthcare provider. He or she can help you decide if PhenPhast is a good choice for your particular lifestyle, state of health and your weight loss goals.
