Appetite Away

Appetite Away is a dietary supplement from 4 Organics that claims to be an natural diet pill that provides users with control over hunger without jitters. Beyond appetite control it offers other potential advantages like increased fat burning, boosted metabolism, decreased fat storage, and provides key nutrients.

More specifically, the supposed benefits of Appetite Away include boosted energy levels, increased stamina, enhanced metabolism, increased conversion of glucose into energy, burns calories and stores fat more efficiently, and works equally for both men and women.

When this review was created, the Appetite Away ingredients include: Chromium, Caffeine Anhydrous and a Proprietary Blend (Theobromine, Guarana, Hoodia Cactus Powder, caralluma fimbriata, Magnolia Bark, Green Tea, Pomegranate Powder, Maca Fisetin, L-Theanine, L-Tyrosine, Banaba, Cha de Bugre, Guggulsterone, Glucomannan).

The directions, according to the Amazon sales page, where this product could be purchased when this review was written, are to take 1-2 capsules to control hunger as needed. Users are cautioned not to exceed more than 4 capsules within a 24 hour period.

Although the Amazon sales page claims that there are no jitters, each capsule contains 200 mg of caffeine anhydrous (caffeine equivalent of about 2 cups of coffee). It also contains another caffeine stimulant, guarana.

With that in mind, if users can take up to 4 capsules per day, this would amount to 800 mg of caffeine in total, which is double the amount of caffeine (about 4 cups of coffee) that is considered safe for individuals who are not sensitive to this stimulant.

In other words, not only is Appetite Away likely to cause jitters and a slew of other unpleasant side effects (e.g. insomnia, rapid heartbeat, anxiety, upset stomach, headaches, etc.) but it could also be dangerous if you took the maximum allowable dose.

Moreover, none of the ingredients in this diet pill have ever been proven effective for weight loss. Also, there are far too many ingredients within this formula for them to be beneficial in a meaningful way, even if they were effective.

Due to there being no official product page for Appetite Away when this review was created and the amount of stimulants in this formula, it would be best for you to consider another diet pill that could help support your appetite suppression efforts, or at the very least, contained less caffeine.

That being said, if you would like to give Appetite Away a try, do speak with your doctor first to make sure it is safe for you to do so.

Jumpfire Nutrition Fat Burners

Jumpfire Nutrition Fat Burners is a weight loss pill that claims to work fast for both men and women. It is marketed as “premium thermogenic physique sculptor,” and according to Jumpfire Nutrition Fat Burners product page when this review was created, advantages include: elevating mood, supercharging metabolism, appetite suppression, help melting those hard-to-get fat storages, and gives you lasting energy without the crash.

At the time that this Jumpfire Nutrition Fat Burners review was written, the active ingredients within the formula included: Caffeine Anhydrous, Bitter Orange, Niacin, Green Tea Extract, Guarana, N-Acetyl L-Carnitine.

Oddly, it included these same ingredients in its inactive ingredients list. This is bizarre considering an ingredient cannot be both active and inactive, it is one or the other. Moreover, ingredients such as caffeine are never inactive. Caffeine is a drug and has an effect on the body.

That aside, one look at the active ingredients in this over-the-counter (OTC) diet pill, and its clear that the majority of the ingredients are stimulants (e.g. caffeine, bitter orange and guarana). Stimulants, such as caffeine have been found to boost mental alertness. Caffeine can also boost metabolism, particularly when combined with physical activity, and some people have reported feeling less hungry when taking caffeine.

However, there is no scientific proof that taking caffeine or any of the ingredients in Jumpfire Nutrition Fat Burners will aid in or cause measurable fat loss. Weight that you may lose while taking this dietary supplement will be heavily dependent on your diet (how many calories you ingest) and regular exercise.

The suggested use is to take 1 capsule, 2 times per day, 4 to 6 hours apart. For energy pre-workout you can take 1 to 2 capsules per day, 45 minutes prior to exercise. Although it does not say the maximum number of pills you should take within a 24-hour period, it can be assumed that no more than 2 capsules should be exceeded in a day.

It should also be noted that it would be best not to take Jumpfire Nutrition Fat Burners later in the afternoon or too close to bedtime to avoid sleep disturbances or insomnia. One capsule contains 200 mg of caffeine, which is about equal to just over two cups of coffee.

Caffeine, especially when combined with bitter orange (which contains the stimulant synephrine), increases the risk of unwanted side effects, including: sleeplessness, jitters, restlessness, anxiety, heart palpitations, rapid heartbeat and even more serious conditions, such as high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke.

You should speak with your healthcare provider prior to take Jumpfire Nutrition Fat Burners.

When this Jumpfire Nutrition Fat Burners review was written, a bottle could be purchased from the official website for £21.95 (approximately $28.00).

Diet-Phen

Diet-Phen with St. John’s Wort is a dietary supplement from Source Naturals. It is a weight loss product that has been designed to be used as a part of the Diet-Phen Weight Loss Plan. It has been specially formulated to help support a positive mood, boost mental alertness and assist in weight loss.

Three tablets make up one serving size of Diet-Phen. The ingredients include: Chromium, St. John’s Wort, L-Phenylalanine, Hypericins, Guarana, Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl, Lipoic Acid, Yerba Mate, Green Tea, Resveratrol, Ginger Root.

Users are instructed to take 1 or 2 tablets in the morning, 30 minutes prior to breakfast and one tablet 30 minutes before lunch. No more than three pills should be exceeded in a day and Diet-Phen should not be taken before bedtime because this product contains stimulants (ex. guarana, green tea) and ingredients that boost the effects of stimulants (ex L-phenylalanine). When this Diet-Phen review was written, a single bottle of 180 tablets cost $26.77 on Amazon.

In terms of effectiveness, Diet-Phen contains many ingredients that have been studied for weight loss, such as l-phnylalnine, guarana, green tea, yerba mate, ginger root and so on. Of all these ingredients, green tea and guarana (which both contain caffeine) have shown the most promise in terms of helping with fat loss. Research has shown that when combined with physical activity, caffeine can enhance fat burning, which may be beneficial to those seeking to drop pounds. That being said, don’t expect any miracles if you take this product by itself. A healthy, calorie-conscious diet and regular exercise is key for any effective weight loss program.

In terms of precautions, Diet-Phen is not meant for long term use. It is also recommended that you avoid drinking alcohol when taking this diet pill. Tell your doctor of any previously existing or current medical conditions that you may have. You should also inform your healthcare provider of any medications (prescription or OTC) and supplements that you may be taking to ensure that Diet-Phen is safe for you to take.

As for side effects, anyone with a wheat allergy should not take this supplement as it contains wheat. If you are sensitive to stimulants, you should also avoid taking this diet pill. Stimulant-related side effects that may be experienced when taking Diet-Phen may include, but are not necessarily limited to: insomnia, restlessness, jitters, anxiety, rapid heartbeat, rapid breathing, headache, mood swings, stomach upset, ringing in the ears, etc.

Finally, Diet-Phen contains St. John’s Wort, which can cause negative side effects like vivid dreams, headache, dizziness, tingling, skin rash, anxiety, stomach upset, restlessness and so on. Keep this information in mind if you decide to take this weight loss aid.

PhenMax 375

PhenMax 375 is an “extra strong thermogenic fat burner and appetite suppressant”. Promising rapid weight loss, this USA made over-the-counter diet pill contains a blend of ingredients that are supposedly clinically proven to help you lose body fat safely and at a rate that is far quicker than if you were to engage in only diet and exercise alone.

Unfortunately, like so many other diet pills on the market that have been created as OTC alternatives to weight loss drugs like Phentermine, PhenMax 375 is unlikely to help you lose weight. What it will likely do is boost your energy, which will be explained in more detail when the ingredients are analyzed.

Each capsule is composed of the PhenMax 375-60 Proprietary Blend: B-Phenylethylamine HCL, Green Tea, Garcinia Cambogia Extract, Guarana, L-Carnitine Fumarate and Carlluma Extract.

One confusing aspect in regard to this product is the dosage instructions found on its label. Although one serving (765mg) is made up of 2 capsules, the recommended dose is to take only 1 capsule on an empty stomach 30 minutes prior to breakfast. Users are cautioned not to exceed the recommended dosage. However, if only one pill should be taken, it is odd that the manufacturer listed 2 capsules as one serving.

As for the ingredients themselves, here’s what you should keep in mind. Garcinia cambogia is thought to curb hunger. Phenylethylamine (PEA) is a stimulant that works to boost mental alertness and suppress appetite. L-carnitine fumarate may help burn fat and decrease feelings of tiredness. Carlluma extract may help quench thirst and reduce hunger. Green tea boosts metabolism and is high in antioxidants. Guarana is also a metabolism booster and may also improve mental focus.

The reality of PhenMax 375 is that it is little more than a caffeine pill. It contains caffeine (found in both green tea and guarana), which stimulates the central nervous system. Caffeine has been clinically proven to boost mental alertness. Some studies have also found that when combined with physical activity, caffeine can increase fat burning for a short time. That being said, keep in mind, caffeine has never been clinically proven to cause weight loss. Furthermore, it may also not be safe for everyone.

In addition to its good side effects, caffeine has many unpleasant ones as well. Sleeplessness, restlessness, upset stomach, headache and rapid heartbeat are some that may be experienced. It would be wise to avoid ingesting other caffeinated products while taking this pill and to consult your healthcare provider before making it part of our weight loss plan.

At the time that this review was written, a single bottle (60 capsules) cost $26.55 on Amazon.

Fedramine

Fedramine is a non-prescription weight loss pill that was created by Internet Marketing Solutions Group, LLC to suppress appetite, boost metabolism and increase energy levels. Based on its name it is clear that this over-the-counter diet pill was designed to be used as an OTC alternative to prescription diet drugs like phentermine and also as an alternative to banned OTC weight loss supplement Ephedra.

At the time that this review was written, while you could purchase a bottle of Fedramine on the internet for around $45, an official product page did not exist. This could imply that the product has been discontinued or soon will be.

Each red and purple capsule contains the following ingredients: Citrus Aurantium, Metabromine, Green Tea, Chromium, White Willow Bark, and Guarana.

Research has found that citrus aurantium, also known as bitter orange, is an energy enhancer that works on the central nervous system. It contains a natural stimulant called synephrine. The belief is that it can help aid weight loss by burning body fat, and curbing appetite.

Metabromine is believed to have a stimulant effect without over-stimulating the nervous system, so it provides a boost of energy but is not as potent as caffeine.

Containing a group of antioxidants known as catechins as well as caffeine, green tea is believed to boost thermogenesis (burning fat as energy to produce heat) in the body and can help to boost metabolism.

Studies have found that Chromium can lower blood lipid levels and may help to produce weight loss. It may also lower insulin levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes.

White Willow Bark may help to reduce pain and inflammation. For weight loss, some believe that this herb can be beneficial because it helps to improve general feelings of wellbeing which may make it easier for people to stick with their goals and maintain motivation.

Guarana is naturally high in caffeine and can help a person feel more mentally alert and may also help to boost metabolism and lead to more fat burning when combined with physical activity. It may even suppress appetite in some people.

Unfortunately, in spite of some interesting findings, none of these ingredients have ever been sufficiently studied to solidly prove that they are effective for aiding in or causing weight loss. Even caffeine, which is a known energy booster and fat burner, won’t necessarily cause weight loss.

Furthermore, anyone who is interested in taking Fedramine should be aware that this product contains many stimulants, including 2 ingredients containing caffeine. Furthermore, it contains synephrine, which enhances the effects of caffeine (both good and bad). Therefore, while you will receive a greater energy boost, you will also be at a great risk of unpleasant side effects including insomnia, jitters, rapid heartbeat, anxiety and upset stomach. The combination of synephrine and caffeine may also lead to more serious risks including high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke. You should avoid taking this supplement too close to your bedtime.

If you are interested in taking Fedramine, you should first consult with your healthcare provider to make sure it is safe for you. Individuals under the age of 18, pregnant or nursing women and individuals with diabetes should avoid taking this product.

PhenaTrim

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.
