At the time this review was written, the product description for Phenelean on the Pro Muscle Products site (the official UK distributor of the product), said that Phenelean is a “Phentremine 375 replacement”. One would assume that this was a typo and whoever created the ad was referring to the prescription drug Phentermine, and not another OTC Phentermine alternative. This clear carelessness in the ad automatically raises some red flags about how much care actually went into the creation of this product.
According to the supplements facts for Phenelean, each capsule contains the following proprietary formula: .
While many of the ingredients in Phenelean are commonly found in many quality OTC weight loss pills on the market, such as caffeine, cayenne, and green tea, others, such as Amp Citrate, are a huge cause for concern.
Also known as Methylpentane, Amp Citrate is a chemical that is not unlike 1,3-dimethylamylamine (DMAA), which was banned by the FDA back in 2012 due to its connection to heart attacks, seizures, and even death. Methylpentane works like a stimulant and can cause blood vessels to contract in certain parts of the body and boost heart rate.
Furthermore, this product contains multiple stimulants, which also increases the risk of certain issues such as sleeplessness, anxiety, mood swings, etc. For this reason, it is a good idea for users to watch their caffeine intake when taking dietary supplements that contain stimulants, to reduce the risk of unwanted side effects.
That being said, prior to taking this product, you are strongly advised to first speak with your health care provider. This dietary supplement contains powerful ingredients that could be unsafe for some individuals to take, especially those with health conditions or who may be taking medications.
Users are recommended to take 1 capsule in the morning with water and 1 after lunch with water. They are also instructed not to exceed more than 2 capsules per day.
When this review was written, Phenelean could still be purchased online from the Pro Muscles Products site for £25 ($38.00)
