Phen700 (Phentemine 700) promises “fast and amazing results.” According to the bottle’s label, it is a “Pharmacy grade appetite suppressant dietary supplement.” This diet pill is also supposed to help improve sleep, increase energy and lower aches and pains.
The active ingredients in Phen700 include: Phenylethylamine, Synephrine, Caffeine, Nettle Leaf Extract, Yohimbine Extract, Insoitol Niacinate and Picamilon.
How do these ingredients benefit users of Phen700? The official website of the product says that Phenylehylamine (PEA) improves mood and increases alertness, which can be beneficial for improving exercise performance. Synephrine (bitter orange/citrus aurantium) is a fat burner that works best when combined with caffeine. Caffeine acts as a catalyst in Phen700, enhancing the effects of the other ingredients in the formula. It also raises energy levels and mental awareness.
Nettle leaf helps to reduce water retention, contains many vitamins and minerals and may also help to relieve joint pain. Yohimbine has been found to hinder a mechanism in fat cells that prevent weight loss. Inositol niacinate can help to lower bad (LDL) cholesterol and raise good (HDL) cholesterol when combined with proper exercise and diet. Picamilon assists the other Phen700 ingredients in helping users burn extra calories and prevent fat production.
Although this sounds impressive, the reality of this product is that not a single one of the ingredients it contains has ever been scientifically proven effective for weight loss. Research has shown that stimulants, like caffeine, are fat burners and can improve alertness, but boosting alertness and even fat burning does not guarantee weight loss.
Also, while synephrine does enhance the effects of caffeine, this may cause more harm than good. Not only does it increase the risk of unpleasant side effects like sleeplessness, jitters, rapid heartbeat, anxiety, upset stomach, etc., but the FDA also warns that it can increase the risk of serious cardiovascular effects including heart attack and stroke.
This product contains a diuretic (nettle leaf), which could increase the risk of dehydration and even heat stroke from exercise if not enough water is ingested. Furthermore, Phen700 has picamilon in its formula which is a drug and not actually a dietary supplement. Picamilon has not been approved by the FDA and does not meet the FDA criteria for compounds that are allowed in dietary supplements.
Another aspect worth noting is that according to the official product website, in America, Phen700 has proven in users an average 25 pound weight loss in just six weeks. While quite a bold and eye-catching statement, it would be more impressive if the website actually supplied facts or studies to backup this claim. Although the site does have positive testimonials, testimonials are not enough to prove the safety or efficacy of a product. In short: there is zero proof that users will lose any weight while taking Phen700, let alone 25 pounds in six weeks.
If you are interested in making Phen700 a part of your diet and exercise weight loss program, you are strongly urged to first speak with your doctor before taking this product.
