Obilean is an American made weight loss supplement designed to be an over-the-counter (OTC) diet pill alternative to popular prescription diet drug Phentermine. Not only does the name of this product rhyme with diet medication, but it’s tablets are also white with blue specks. That being said, just because this product was created as an OTC alternative, this doesn’t mean that it is effective. This is why it is important to look at the ingredients within its formula to ensure that you will receive the benefits the manufacturer claims that it will provide.
Each Obilean tablet (1 serving) contains Beta Phenylethylamine HCL (375 mg), Caffeine Anhydrous (125 mg), L-Theanine (62.5 mg), Synephrine (15 mg), Theobromine (15 mg), Hordenine HCL (15 mg).
The dosage instructions are to take 1 – 2 tablets in the morning and 1 – 2 tablets in the afternoon. No more than 4 tablets should be taken in one day. Users are cautioned to not take Obilean if they are pregnant or nursing or are under the age of 18. They are also warned that if they consume caffeine while taking this product that they may experience serious adverse health effects. Moreover, individuals who have a sensitivity to caffeine are encouraged to speak with their healthcare provider before taking Obilean.
To put this into greater perspective, if you took the maximum dose of Obilean per day (4 tablets), according to the product’s supplement facts, you would be ingesting 500 mg of caffeine daily, which is the equivalent to just over 5 cups of coffee. Moreover, to further expand on this warning, Obilean contains stimulants other than caffeine, including beta phenylethylamine, synephrine, and hordenine, all three of which work to enhance the effects of caffeine.
This means that the positive effects that caffeine can have as a weight loss aid may be improved, such as greater fat burning potential, metabolism boosting and appetite suppression. That being said, it also means that the risk of experiencing the not-so-pleasant side effects of caffeine are also enhanced like jitters, sleeplessness, heart palpitations, upset stomach, headache, ringing in the ears, anxiety, etc.
What’s more, findings from the FDA show that the combination of caffeine and synephrine may lead to serious cardiovascular side effects – even in healthy individuals – such as high blood pressure, stroke and heart attack.
The bottom line is that there is a good chance you will receive an energy boost when taking Obilean, which may possibly help you burn fat when this product is combined with exercise and a healthy diet. However, due to the high degree of stimulants in this product, it may be unsafe for many people to take. Speak to your doctor before taking this OTC diet pill.
