Phentramine-RX 50

Phentramine-RX 50, or Re:Active Phentramine-RX 50, is an over-the-counter (OTC) weight loss supplement sold by Desirable Body. It has been created to suppress appetite, boost metabolism, and burn extra fat. 

The Benefits of Phentramine-RX 50

Phentramine-RX 50 supposedly improves the body’s natural ability to burn calories. This results in enhanced fat burning at a faster rate than would be possible through diet and exercise alone, according to the creators of this product.

If this diet pill does indeed provide this advantage, it could be highly beneficial to dieters who need additional support with their weight management strategies, such as adhering to a calorie-controlled diet and regular exercise.

Moreover, aside from its fat burning claims, the manufacturer also says that this nonprescription diet pill has been developed to enhance focus and improve energy levels. Both of these positive effects can certainly be beneficial for offering support in overcoming struggles associated with keeping up with daily exercise and feeling clear-headed when it comes to making smart food choices.

All those potential benefits aside, however, it is evident by its name and how it is meant to help with weight loss that this product has been designed as an alternative to prescription Phentermine. That being said, it is important to note that such alternatives do not truly exist. This diet pill will not produce effects similar to a prescription diet pill.

Ingredients to Consider

When this review was created, the Phentramine-RX 50 ingredients included:

  • Caffeine,
  • Tyrosine,
  • Gelatin,
  • Naringin,
  • L-Tryptophan,
  • Magnesium Stearate,
  • Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitmain B6)

On the product page of the official Desirable Body website, it says that the ingredients in the formulation are proven and that they help you to burn excess fat cells, giving you a boost to help you keep up with your workouts.

As far as the proven ingredients are concerned, this product does contain caffeine, which has been extensively studied. While it is commonly believed that caffeine has the potential to boost energy and reduce appetite in some people. Some studies have found that this is not the case, particularly in regard to appetite suppression.

Furthermore, when used in conjunction with one of the diet pill’s other ingredients, naringin, caffeine is said to work with greater efficiency. In addition, the body transforms L-tryptophan into 5-HTP, which is known to have calorie burning benefits when combined with cardio exercise. 

Be Aware of Potential Side Effects

However, it is important to note that even though caffeine may boost energy and naringin can boost its effects, caffeine is a stimulant and just as it can cause positive side effects; it can also cause negative side effects in some people, especially those who are sensitive to stimulants.

Potential adverse effects include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  • Sleeplessness
  • Anxiety
  • Jitters
  • Headache
  • Mood changes
  • Digestive upset

Additionally, be advised that ingesting other stimulant foods and beverages when taking these pills could also increase your risk of adverse effects. 

Take This Diet Pill as Directed

For best results, Phentramine-RX 50 was meant to be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise program. The recommended dosage is to start by taking one pill per day to assess how well your body responds to the supplement. You can eventually increase the dose to two pills per day, which is also the maximum dose. One pill should be taken in the morning and the other in the early afternoon.

A one month supply (60 capsules) was available online for £19.95 (approximately US$30.00) at the time that this Phentramine-RX 50 review was written.

That being said, prior to taking this weight loss supplement, it is advisable to first speak with your medical practitioner to make sure that this product is the right fit for your weight loss goals and healthy lifestyle habits. This is particularly crucial if you have a known medical condition, are treating a health condition with medications or herbal supplements, or if you are pregnant or nursing. 

Update: As of September 2019, Phentramine-RX 50 appears to be unavailable. The official website is gone and it is not for sale at reputable retail sites.

Full-Time Fat Burner

Full-Time Fat Burner is a non-prescription diet pill that claims to be a premium fat burner that works fast for men and women. It has been designed to work with the user’s body to quickly burn stubborn belly fat.

This product supposedly increases metabolism within 30 minutes, at which point the user should notice a boost in energy as their metabolism begins to burn the fat that is stored on their body. It is also said on the product’s Amazon sales page (an official site didn’t exist for this product when this review was created) that the pills provide sustained boosted energy that lasts all day long. It claims that because the energy doesn’t wear off, there aren’t any sudden energy crashes.

Full-Time Fat Burner was designed for individuals who want energy that lasts all day and those who want a boost before their workout. If it does actually provide an energy benefit, this product may help you power through your day and stick to your workout routine, especially if you already follow a healthy calorie-reduced diet and a regular exercise plan.

When this review of Full-Time Fat Burner was written, each serving size (1 capsule) contained Niacin (10 mg) and the FT Burn Proprietary Blend (223 mg): Guaraná (seed), Yohimbe (bark) Extract (yohimbine), Green tea (leaf), Cinnamon (twig), Greater Galangal (rhizome), Gugglesterones E & Z, Naringin, Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly, Asian ginseng (root).

The first ingredient in this fat burning supplement formula is guarana, which is an herb and potent stimulant. It contains about twice the concentration of caffeine found in coffee seeds. Yohimbe is also a stimulant and there is caffeine in green tea. In other words, Full-Time Fat Burner is likely to give you a mental boost and may help to energize you. Still, don’t expect any miracles. Even if this product can boost your fat burning capabilities (although this is not proven), this doesn’t mean fat will magically melt off your body. At best, it will assist your current weight management strategies.

Moreover, although the Amazon page for Full-Time Fat Burner states that this dietary supplement has no side effects, this is an untrue statement, every dietary supplement carries a risk of side effects. It doesn’t matter how “safe” the ingredients may be. Simply because something comes from an herb, does not make it safe.

More to the point, this diet pill contains caffeine, which means that there is a risk of stimulant-related side effects, at the very least, such as sleeplessness, restlessness, jitters, anxiety, headache, heart palpitations, etc.

It’s a good idea to first consult with your healthcare provider before you take this or any other dietary supplement for weight loss purposes.

Phenadrine Thermo Cut

Phenadrine Thermo Cut comes from Biogen. It is an OTC thermogenic fat burner that boosts energy, increases alertness and also helps to reduce hunger. According to the official product page for this weight management aid, Thermo Cut has “been enhanced with the latest in effective ‘fat burning’ herbs, as well as key nutrients to improve absorption and efficacy of these ingredients.”

The ingredients in Phenadrine Thermo Cut include: Coleus Forskholi, Naringin, Green Tea, Caffeine, Yerba Mate Leaf, L-Tyrosine, Nicotinamide, Gymnema Sylvestre extract, Bacopa Monniera Ext, Evodia Rutaecarpa 10%, Theobromine, Barberry Bark Ext 60%, Curcuma Longa, Bioperine, Caralluma Fimbriata.

There are three major troubling aspects about these ingredients. The first is that there is more than one stimulant (ex. green tea, caffeine, yerba mate leaf, and theobromine), which increases the risk of unwanted stimulant-related side effects like sleeplessness, anxiety, jitters, heart palpitations, moods swings, headache, etc. The second issue is that there are 15 ingredients. With so many ingredients, it is unlikely that there are enough quantities of each to provide any significant benefit. Finally, while they have been clinically studied, there is no solid evidence that any of these ingredients can help a person actually lose weight.

Users are instructed to start by taking 1 to 2 capsules twice per day. Over time, as users assess their tolerance, they can take up to 4 capsules, two or three times daily. It is recommended that users take the pills 30 – 40 minutes before breakfast or a morning workout, 30 – 40 minutes before lunch, and 30-40 minutes before a mid-afternoon meal or workout. Users are cautioned not to take the pills after 4 pm to prevent sleep disruption. To achieve maximum results, the manufacturer recommends that Thermo Cut should be taken for 5 consecutive days and stopped for 2 before continuing the same process.

Due to the dosage suggestion, it seems likely that even if dieters do not take this pill after 4 pm, they are still likely to encourage unwanted stimulant-relates side effects due to the number of stimulants in the formula. Furthermore, taking up to 4 capsules two to three times daily is quite the high dose of stimulants.

At the time this review was written, Phenadrine Thermo Cut was only available for sale in South Africa. That being said, if this pill interests you and you find a way to obtain it, be sure to first consult with your medical practitioner prior to purchasing it to make sure it is the right weight loss aid for you.
