At the writing of this review, the proprietary formula contained within each AtraFen Elite capsule was composed of the following ingredients: Caffeine, Glucuronolactone, Phenethylamine HCl, Nettle Leaf Extract, Yohimbe Extract, Inositol Niacinate. There is 450 mg of this proprietary formula in each 1 capsule serving.
Although the individual amounts of each ingredient used in the formula is not listed, it is very likely that the ingredient that is most prevalent in it is caffeine. The reason is that the claim for this product is that it was “formulated specifically for those that need to lose weight fast and can handle the powerful metabolic stimulants.” Considering this product contains only three stimulants – caffeine, phenethylamine and Yohimbe – and caffeine is the first listed ingredient, there’s a good chance that a good percentage of the 450 mg per serving formula is caffeine.
That being said, most of the ingredients in the formula – stimulant or not – are believed to help boost energy, improve metabolism and help to suppress appetite. In terms of clinical evidence regarding their efficacy in this regard, caffeine – a central nervous stimulant – has been found to boost mental focus, ward off mental fatigue, and can maximize fat burning potential when combined with physical activity, like cardio exercise.
Users are directed to take 1 capsule, twice per day, 30 minutes before meals. A third capsule can be taken for increased weight loss. No more than 3 capsules should be taken in a 24 hour period.
While taking AtraFen could potentially help you with your weight loss goals if you combine it with a healthy, calorie-conscious diet and regular exercise, you should keep in mind that since it does contain stimulants, it does increase you risk of certain side effects, such as sleeplessness, jitters, restlessness, anxiety, heart palpitations, rapid heartbeat, upset stomach, headache, and so on.
You should consult with your doctor before taking AtraFen Elite, especially if you are sensitive to stimulants or have an existing health condition or are taking medication.
