LipaVex

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.

AtraFen Pro-3

AtraFen Pro-3 is a “triple action non-stimulant extreme weight loss formula” from Nutratech that is meant to provide weight loss support. It is a 3-in-1 stimulant-free fat burner blend that works as an appetite suppressant, provides a full body detox and also delivers a dose of probiotics for digestive health.

More specifically, the formula is broken down into 3 blends and each one plays a specific role in the body. The overall goal of this product is to provide all-day appetite suppression and fat burning through several pathways in the body. Fat burning supposedly results from increased theremogenesis and increased thyroid appetite.

The ingredients within each AtraFen Pro-3 Capsule include:

Stim-Free Burning & Appetite Suppression Blend: Rasberry Ketones, African Mango Extract, Cayenne Pepper, Citrus Pectin, Fennel Seed Extract.

Metabolic ProbioBoost Complex: Acidophilus, Falxseed Oil, Ginger, Goldenseal.

UltraCleanse & Detox Matrix: Cascara Sagrada, Pumpkin Seed, Buckthorne Root, Licorice Root, Rhubarb, Cape Aloe, Bentonite Clay, Aloe Vera, Senna, Oat Bran, Prune Juice.

The recommended dosage is to take 2 capsules on an empty stomach in the morning. A third (optional) capsule can be taken later in the day for those seeking extra weight loss benefits.

Although AtraFen Pro-3 contains clinically tested ingredients, it doesn’t contain clinically proven ingredients for weight loss. Moreover many customers have complained of receiving no appetite suppression benefit from taking this pill.

Nutratech’s official product page for AtraFen Pro-3 claims that this dietary supplement has zero side effects. It’s always concerning when a company claims that their product has no side effects because this statement is untrue. Even though there are no stimulants within the formula, this doesn’t mean the product is without any side effects, after all, if the pill did manage to cause appetite suppression and fat burning, both of these would be side effects.

Of course, when the manufacturer claims “no side effects” they are referring to adverse effects and not the ones the product has been designed to cause. Still, there is always the potential for side effects such as digestive upset, especially due to the fact that this product contains laxatives.

Therefore, it would be unwise to automatically assume that this dietary supplement will be an effective or even safe complement to your weight loss regimen. It’s always best to speak with your doctor first to make certain it is right for you.

When this review was written, a single bottle of AtraFen Pro-3 sold on Amazon for $39.99.

Phen Drink

Phen Drink is an over-the-counter product for individuals who are seeking to boost their weight loss results. More specifically, it has been designed to help enhance the weight loss results of Phetermine users or those taking other diet medications. That being said, while it is marketed as a weight loss aid to complement Phentermine, it can also be taken by individuals interested in adding more water to their diet and who want to lose weight at the same time.

Phen Drink is supposed to help relieve dry mouth, help those who take it stay hydrated and increase their saliva production, as well as boost metabolic rate and suppress hunger to improve calorie and fat burning. Furthermore, it apparently manages to do all of this without increasing calories.

At the time this review was written, a one month supply, which contains 30 packages, could be purchased online for $39.95, plus shipping.

The ingredients in the Phen Drink formula include: Green Tea Extract, Chamomile Extract, Prickly Ash, EGCG, Ginger, Guarana Extract, Lemongrass, Lo Han Fruit, and Stevia Leaf. Users are instructed to take one packet of Phen Drink per day. The single packet of powder should be emptied into a 1 liter (33 ounce) bottle of water. Users should shake the water thoroughly and have the drink throughout the day.

Each of the ingredients within the powdered formula supposedly provides a specific advantage. For instance, Chamomile helps in the stimulation of digestion, alleviates bloating, and increases saliva production. Guarana provides an energy boost, and may also help to suppress appetite and increase alertness. EGCG is thought to have a positive effect on weight management. Green tea helps to prevent dry mouth by triggering saliva. Prickly Ash also increases saliva production and Giver is believed to boost metabolism and add flavor.

While the effects of each of these ingredients sound promising, there is no evidence that they truly benefit weight loss. What’s more, this product contains guarana, which is considered to be even more potent than regular caffeine. Therefore, it could cause adverse effects (ex. heart palpitations, sleeplessness, jitters, headache, etc.) in those who have sensitivities to stimulants or who may be ingesting other products containing stimulants.

Although you do not need a doctor’s prescription to take this product, you should still consult with your healthcare provider before taking PhenDrink. This is especially important if you will be combining it with another diet drug or weight loss supplement, or any other medication you may be taking.
