Fenphedrine

According to the official product page, Fenphedrine was created to inhibit neuropeptide Y (NPY) and stimulate Cocaine Amphetamine Regulatory Transcript (CART) to help aid with weight loss. 

The Power of CART Over NPY

The official product page says that CART aids in:

  • Boosting metabolism
  • Reducing appetite
  • Increasing insulin levels

All this supposedly results in less storing of fat and calories and provides muscles with the energy they actually require.

That being said, NPY is a stress hormone that:

  • Lowers body temperature
  • Boosts appetite
  • Hinders metabolism

According to the site, the continual battle between CART and NPY is the reason why a person is overweight. That being said, they offer no science to back this up. 

Fenphedrine Ingredients are a Mystery

The only ingredients listed in the Fenphedrine formula include:

  • DiCaffeine Malate
  • Razberi K
  • Thermodiamine

No other ingredients are provided, and no supplements facts sheet is available for viewing on the official page, which is quite disappointing, as it makes it difficult to learn more about the product other than what the manufacturer wants to reveal.

This immediately raises a red flag because it makes it seem as though the manufacturer doesn’t care enough about its product to provide the necessary information that allows potential customers to inform themselves. It also makes it seem as though the manufacturer has something to hide, which is never a good impression to leave.

Furthermore, while the site does provide a few details about the benefits of the three ingredients that it does list, no studies have been provided to backup claims that have been made about them.

Therefore, while these ingredients may help to stimulate thermogenesis, encourage mental alertness and focus, boost energy levels, burn fat, and lower fat absorption, as the site claims, there is no proof that this is true, which is another red flag.

It is one thing to say that a product contains clinically researched ingredients and to talk about certain benefits that may help support a person’s weight loss efforts, but it is entirely another to make bold claims about the ingredients without backing up these claims with scientific fact.   

There is No Guarantee that this Product is Safe

In addition to there being no substantial evidence that Fenphedrine is effective, there is also no guarantee that it is safe. This product has a high stimulant content, which may increase the risk of certain adverse effects, such as:

  • Insomnia
  • Jitters
  • Headaches
  • Nervousness
  • Anxiety
  • Digestive upset

The risk of these adverse effects is increased in some people with sensitivities to stimulants or those who might ingest other foods or beverages containing stimulants like caffeine, while taking this product.

It would be in your best interest to first speak with your doctor before taking this product to make sure that it is safe for you and that it is beneficial to your weight loss goals. This is especially important if you are currently taking other medications or supplements or if you have an existing medical condition. After all, the last thing you want is for this diet pill product to make a medical condition worse or negatively interact with other medications or supplements that you may be taking.

With that said, when this Fenphedrine review was written, a one month supply (60 capsules) cost $69.95. It also came with a 90-day money-back guarantee.

October 2019 Update – Fenphedrine is no longer available nor is the official webpage that was dedicated to it currently active. Although you may have hoped to have tried this product, considering the lack of information about it when it was available, it’s not too surprising that it was discontinued and pulled from the digital shelves. It would be far better for you to choose an OTC diet pill that is manufactured by a reputable company that provides detailed information about their product as well as one that cites clinical research pertaining to the ingredients that have been chosen for the formula. You deserve no less than the best.

Apidren Super Shredded

If you want to melt fat from your body, boost your metabolism and feel great while you’re doing it, Apidren Super Shredded promises to help you do just that. This product comes from NutriPharm and supposedly contains all natural and powerful ingredients to help you lose weight in a healthy and natural way. When this review was written, a single bottle of Apidren Super Shredded could be purchased on Amazon for $59.99.

The ingredients in the Apidren Super Shredded formula included the following: Vitamin B12, Chromium, Garcinia Cambogia, Green Coffee Bean, Irvingia Gabonensis, Razberi-K, Phenylthylamine, ThermoDiamine.

The recommended dosage is to take 2 capsules 30 minutes prior to breakfast, lunch and/or exercise with 8-16 ounces of water. The manufacturer cautions not to exceed the recommended dosage and not to take it within 6 hours of bedtime. Due to the fact that there are stimulants in this product it makes sense that users should avoid taking this dietary supplement before bed to lower the risk of insomnia or sleep disturbances.

What isn’t quite clear is the caution that was made in reference not to exceed the recommended dose. The reason is the product label isn’t quite clear on what that recommended dose might be. Based on the way it is written, the maximum dose per day could be only 2 pills (either taken at breakfast lunch or before exercise) or as many as 6 pills (2 pills before breakfast, lunch and exercise). The fact that the directions are not clearly laid out is a sign of this product’s lack of integrity.

On the plus side, Apidren Super Shredded is GMP certified and is manufactured in the USA. It is also free from any fillers or questionable ingredients and does have full ingredient transparency. Each of these points help to build the product’s quality.

Unfortunately, beyond these points, this dietary supplement offers very little else that is positive. For starters, none of the ingredients within its formula have been clinically proven to be effective weight loss aids. What this means is that there is no guarantee that you will lose weight if you take this product. It also means that there is no guarantee that it’s safe to take either.

Still, if you feel like Apidren Super Shredded is worth a try, it is strongly recommended that you first speak to your healthcare provider about your weight loss goals and plans before you add this pill to your weight loss regimen and diet.
