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.
