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.

PhenPhast Advanced

PhenPhast Advanced is a non-prescription diet pill that promises rapid weight loss with its “double –strength” formula. It should come as no surprise that this dietary supplement from NaturaPrime promises appetite suppression. The reason is that the vast majority of over-the-counter (OTC) weight loss products that have the word “phen” in their name are marketed as alternatives to the prescription diet drug Phentermine.

PhenPhast supposedly works as a thermogenic, boosting metabolism and enhancing fat loss. In addition to suppressing appetite it also claims to improve focus and boost energy levels.

The formula consists of a PhenPhast Advanced Complex, which is composed of a 1,000 mg per serving of L-Carnitine, L-Arginine, L-Ornithine, L-Glutamine, Tyrosine, Tryptophan, Beta-Alanine, GABA, Chromium, Hoodia, Grapefruit Powder, African Mango, Green Tea Leaf Extract, EGCG, Panax Ginseng, Glycyrrhizin Extract, Gymnema Sylvestre, Coleus Forskohlii, Grape Seed Extract, Astragalus, and Maca Powder.

Unfortunately, there are no clinical trials to backup any of the claims made about this product. Furthermore, none of the ingredients – not even those that have been proven to improve mental focus and help with fat burning (ex. Green Tea), have ever been scientifically proven to cause weight loss.

Furthermore, it is also important to point out that right on the PhenPhast product label it states that the product is “non-stimulating”. However, you might have noticed in the list of ingredients that it contains Green Tea Leaf Extract which typically contains caffeine. However, the caffeine in green tea is often so mild that it is unlikely to cause the harsher side effects associated with caffeine anhydrous, such as insomnia, jitters, rapid heartbeat, etc. Be that as it may, the product doesn’t tell you how much green tea is in each serving. Still, the term “non-stimulating” is not the same as “stimulant-free”. The product isn’t claiming to be without stimulants only that it won’t cause stimulating effects.

At the time that this review was written, PhenPhast Advanced sold on Amazon for $23.99. Each bottled contains 60 capsules (a one month supply). Users are instructed to take 2 capsules per day with an 8 ounce glass of water. Beyond this suggested use instruction, there are no other directions for users (ex. when to take the pills, if they should be taken together, if they should be taken on an empty stomach or with food, etc.).

Prior to taking PhenPhast Advanced it would be a good idea to first consult with your healthcare provider. He or she can help you decide if PhenPhast is a good choice for your particular lifestyle, state of health and your weight loss goals.
