Adiperx HCL 37.5mg is a non-prescription diet pill that has supposedly been designed to suppress a person’s appetite. The name of this product makes it clear that is has been marketed as an alternative to Adipex, which contains phentermine hydrochloride (HCL). That being said, aside from its name and the fact that it is a white tablet with blue specks, Adiperx HCL does not contain phentermine. It is also free of ephedra and amphetamines.
While there is no official website for Adiperx HCL, information that can be found about it online claims that it is an all natural herbal supplement and it can control cravings and reduce appetite. At the time this review was written, no ingredients list for this product could be found. This immediately raises many red flags and brings the efficacy and safety of this weight loss pill into question. However, one site selling the product did say that it is a gymnema-based herbal supplement, which suggests that the formula may contain gymnema. Still, even if this is the case, it is unknown how much of this herb it contains or what other ingredients may be found in the formula.
Gymnema is a shrub that is native to Africa and India. It is commonly used in weight loss products, as well as to aid in the treatment of diabetes, metabolic syndrome and cough. The leaves of the shrub contain a substance that reduces the absorption of sugar from the intestine. It can also increase insulin production and the growth of pancreas cells. It has been used as an appetite suppressant, diuretic, laxative and digestive stimulant. There is no clinical evidence that proves gymnema is effective for aiding in weight loss in humans.
Since there is extremely limited information regarding Adiperx HCL, it is unknown what side effects may occur from taking this product. This, coupled by the lack of evidence to back up claims that it works to assist with weight loss, leads one to conclude that this product is likely ineffective and potentially dangerous.
At the time of this review, a bottle of Adiperx HCL containing 60 tablets cost $79.99. Nevertheless, while it may be possible to purchase this weight loss supplement, due to the lack of ingredients list and the limited information about this diet pill, it is strongly recommended that you avoid taking it and definitely consult with your healthcare provider if it is something that interests you.
