AtraFen Elite

AtraFen Elite has been designed as a weight management aid by Nutratech. This diet pill is the company’s flagship weight management and fat loss supplement. It is marketed as a “Professional Strength & Thermogenic Fat Burning Amplifier.”

AtraFen Elite was supposedly formulated as a clinical strength diet pill that uses the most potent, high-quality and scientifically proven ingredients. The ingredients were carefully selected for effective, safe and “dramatic weight management”.

The ingredients in the product’s proprietary formula, when this review was written, include: Caffeine, Glucuronolactone, Phenethylamine HCl, Synephrine Caprylate, Nettle Leaf Extract, Yohimbe Extract, Inositol Niacinate. There is 450 mg of this proprietary formula in each 1 capsule serving.

Each capsule contains 450 mg of the proprietary formula and the directions are to take one capsule twice per day prior to meals. A third capsule can be taken for dieters seeking increased weight loss. No more than 3 capsules should be exceeded in a 24 hour period.

The AtraFen Elite formula is supposed to help with fat burning, appetite suppression, craving control as well as for boosting metabolism and energy. Although there is no proof that the formula can do all of this, as AtraFen Elite has never been scientifically proven effective as a weight management aid, there is a good chance that you are likely to experience more energy.

The reason is that Atrafen Elite contains multiple stimulants including caffeine, synephrine and phenethylamine. Although they may not cause measurable fat loss, they can help to boost mental focus and alertness and can help maximize fat burning when combine with physical activity (e.g. cardio workouts).

That being said, as much as energy boosting may be helpful, these stimulants can also produce some unpleasant side effects, such as insomnia, jitters, restlessness, anxiety, headache, rapid heartbeat, digestive upset, etc. Furthermore, the FDA warns that the combination of caffeine and synephrine (the natural occurring stimulant found in bitter orange/citrus aurantium), can be dangerous even for healthy individuals. The reason is that synephrine boosts the effects of caffeine, which can dramatically increase the risk of cardiovascular effects such as high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke.

You should avoid taking AtraFen Elite late in the afternoon or evening to avoid sleep disturbances. You should also consult with your healthcare provider prior to taking this dietary supplement if you are breast feeding or pregnant, have a current medical condition, or are currently taking other medications.

It would be wise to avoid ingesting other stimulants (e.g. caffeinated beverages) while taking this product to reduce the risk of unwanted side effects. When this AtraFen Elite review was written, this OTC diet pill could be purchased on Amazon and the official product website for $44.99.
