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.

Phenadrine Xtreme

Another Phentermine alternative diet pill from Biogen, Phenadrine Xtreme is a non-prescription diet pill that supposedly helps weight loss seekers to control their appetite, obtain long-lasting energy and thermogenesis. According to the information on the official product page, Phenadrine Xtreme’s formulation was created based on the “latest scientific research”.

The ingredients that make up the Phenadrine Xtreme formula include Green Coffee Bean extract (200mg), Natural Caffeine (200mg), Capsaicin (15mg), Chromium Polynicotinate (200µg), Hoodia Gordonii (400mg) and the Hardcore-Xtreme TM Blend [Yerba Mate, Octopamine HCl, Citrus Aurantium, N-acetyl-L-carnitine (680mg)]. One serving size is equal to 3 capsules.

The above list reveals that this product contains several ingredients and it is nice to see that the manufacturer has provided how much of each ingredient is in one serving (with the exception of the Hardcore-Xtreme TM Blend), which gives users an idea of just how much of each substance they are ingesting.

It also reveals that the formula contains many ingredients that are well known in the weight loss industry, such as green coffee bean, caffeine, chromium, hoodia, yerba mate, and citrus aurantium (bitter orange). Unfortunately, what is true about many of these well known ingredients is that they are not clinically proven to be safe or effective for weight loss.

Take Hoodia, for example, this herb, which has been touted for centuries as an appetite suppressant, has never been clinically proven to successfully have this effect on those who take it.

Furthermore, while it does contain stimulant ingredients that act as thermogenics and have been proven to boost mental focus, energy, and even improve fat burning when combined with exercise (ex. caffeine), Phenadrine Xtreme contains many stimulants. This may be more of a hindrance than a help. The reason is that stimulants like caffeine – which is also in the ingredients yerba mate and green coffee bean – can cause unwanted side effects like insomnia, fast heart rate, rapid heartbeat, dizziness, headache, jitters, etc. The more stimulants there are, the higher the risk of side effects occurring.

It should also be pointed out that citrus aurantium contains the stimulant synephrine, which enhances the effects of caffeine. This includes both its good effects and the bad ones. The FDA has cautioned that combining these two ingredients can be a dangerous combination, even for healthy individuals, with the potential to cause side effects like increased blood pressure, stroke and heart attack.

Overall, Phenadrine Xtreme appears to be a fat burner that is likely to give you an energy boost. If you are interested in trying this product, remember that it is better to be safe than sorry. Consult with your healthcare provider.

Phenadrine Lipo Cut Zero

Phenadrine Lipo Cut Zero comes from South African supplements manufacturer, Biogen. It is a dietary supplement created for weight loss that is designed to help you decrease your appetite and block some of the carbs that you ingest. It is marketed as a potent carb blocker and fat burner free of stimulants.

Additionally, Phenadrine Lipo Cut Zero is also said to help decrease mental fatigue, as well as balance mood and revive energy during the weight loss process. Another claim is that it can help a person maintain healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels while promoting anti-oxidative protection in the body at the same time.

Each capsule of the Phenadrine Lipo Cut Zero formula contains the following ingredients: Cacti-Nea, Hydroxycitric acid, N-acetyl-l-carnitine, and a Carb Regulator Stack (Wild Mango Seed Extract, Phaseolus vulgaris, Banaba leaf extract, and Chromium polynicotinate).

According to the official product page for this weight loss product, Cacti-Nea is a natural water extract of prickly pear cactus fruit, which has displayed notable diuretic and weight management properties without having an effect on mineral balance or blood pressure. Being a diuretic, this ingredient could help to reduce water weight and bloating.

As for the other ingredients, hydroxycitric acid is derived from Garcinia Cambogia and is thought to hinder an enzyme that can transform dietary fats and carbs into body fat. N-acetyl-l-carnitine is believe to help convert fat into energy. Wild mango seed extract’s high fiber content is said to help lower cravings. Phaseolus vulgaris is believed to function like a natural carb blocker, binding with starches, and may also help a person to feel full because it stays in the stomach for a prolonged period of time. Banaba leaf extract is thought to help control blood sugar levels. Chromium polynicotinate supposedly can also assist in the regulation of blood sugar levels, as well as help control cravings.

Unfortunately, not only does the manufacturer not provide any studies to support any claims it has made about its product or formula, no solid proof exists that any of these ingredients can help a person safely and effectively lose weight for the short or long term.

One positive aspect about Phenadrine Lipo Cut Zero is that it does not contain stimulants, such as caffeine. Therefore, users do not have to worry about unpleasant stimulant-related side effects. That being said, this does not mean that this product is without adverse effects. Potential side effects include increased urination, headaches, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, gas/flatulence, nausea, stomach discomfort and changes to blood sugar levels.

Before taking Phenadrine Lipo Cut Zero, you should first consult a medical practitioner.

When this review was written, this product was available only in South Africa. Users were instructed to take 1 to 3 capsules, three times daily, 30 minutes prior to meals. A bottle of 180 capsules cost R199.95 ($15.43).

Phenadrine Slim Sticks

Not all over-the-counter phentermine alternatives come in the form of diet pills. This is the case with Phenadrine Slim Sticks, a weight loss product from Biogen that has been designed as powder to be mixed with water and taken as a beverage. It has been formulated to boost energy, encourage rapid fat loss support, enhance mood and stimulate metabolism and the breakdown of fat.

Phenadrine Slim Sticks contain several ingredients within its proprietary blend. They include: Mango Seed (Irvingia Gabonensis) extract, Green coffee bean extract (45% chlorogenic acid), Caffeine anhydrous, Citrus Aurantium (30% extract), Yerba Mate (25% Xanthins), N-acetyl-l-carnitine. It also contains Inulin (Prebiotic fibre), Flavorants, Citric acid, Malic acid, Non-nutrative sweetener blend (Acesulfame-K, Aspartame [contains Phenylalanine]), Colorant, (E124, E104, E110).

The ingredients within the proprietary blend are believed to help with weight loss. For instance, Mango Seed is said to lower cholesterol levels and improve blood circulation. Green coffee bean supposedly helps to quickly burn fat. Caffeine can increase mental alertness and may increase metabolism. Citrus Aurantium is believed to increase metabolism, energy and calorie expenditure and may act as an appetite suppressant. N-acetyl-l-carnitine is believed to encourage the uptake of fatty acids into your cell mitochondria, so more of your energy comes from burning stored fat. Yerba Mate may help with appetite control.

Unfortunately, aside from caffeine having been clinical proven to increase alertness, none of these ingredients has ever been scientifically proven safe or effective for weight loss. Therefore, while Phenadrine Slim Sticks may give you a boost in mental alertness, there is no guarantee that they will help you lose weight.

In addition, this product contains more than one stimulant. A risk of unpleasant side effects such as insomnia, jitters, anxiety, rapid heartbeat, and other stimulant-related effects is possible with this supplement. Furthermore, be advised that it contains both caffeine and synephrine (a naturally occurring stimulant in citrus aurantium), which can be a dangerous combination as synephrine enhances the effects of caffeine, and this could lead to serious cardiovascular effects including high blood pressure, stroke and heart attack. Anyone interested in taking this product should first speak with their healthcare provider.

The suggested dose for Phenadrine Slim Sticks is to take 3 sachets per day, 1 sachet 30 minutes prior to meals or snacks. A single sachet should be added to 500ml of water. It is recommended for users to take the first dose on an empty stomach in the morning either before breakfast or before a workout. The second dose should be taken before lunch. If users choose to take a third dose, it should be taken prior to 4 pm to avoid sleeping difficulties.

Users are also instructed to take this product 5 days in a row and to stop it for 2 days before beginning again. The manufacturer recommends taking Phenadrine Slim Sticks in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
