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.
