PhenRed is marketed as a highly potent dietary supplement for weight loss offering maximum weight loss, a powerful energy rush, extreme appetite suppression and enhanced focus and mood. It has been designed as a non-prescription alternative to prescription drug phentermine, which is made pretty clear by the “Phen” in its name.
The “clinically proven” formula is reportedly made up of the following ingredients: Trimethylxanthine, Theobromine, Yohimbe Bark Extract, Beta-Phenylethylamine HCL, Synephrine HCL.
At the time that this review was created, a single bottle of PhenRED could be purchased on Amazon for $39.95.
The suggested use is to take two capsules on an empty stomach after waking up or to take the pills as directed by your healthcare provider. Beyond that, no other instructions are provided to users. It is not known how long you should wait before eating, which implies that it doesn’t seem to matter.
As for warnings, PhenRED is meant for adult (18+ years) use only and should not be combined with alcohol. Anyone interested in taking this product should first consult with their healthcare professional. That said, this non-prescription weight loss aid should not be taken by children, women who are pregnant or nursing or anyone with a pre-existing medical condition. Users are also told to immediately discontinue use and contact a physician if an adverse reaction is experienced.
This may lead you to wonder if adverse reactions are possible and what they might be. First and foremost, any dietary supplement can cause side effects, which is why it is important to make sure that you investigate the ingredients and make certain they are safe for you to take.
In regard to PhenRED, the active ingredients in this formula all appear to be stimulants. This means that you are likely to experience mental alertness as well as a boost in energy, which may prove beneficial for fat burning, particularly when combined with exercise. Some research has also found that trimethylxanthine (caffeine) may help to suppress the appetite in some people.
The one major downside to this diet pill is the fact that it contains so many stimulants, particularly the combination of caffeine and syneprhine; the natural occurring stimulant in bitter orange. Not only is there an increased risk of unpleasant side effects, such as insomnia, upset stomach, jitters, restlessness, rapid heartbeat, anxiety, etc. but synephrine enhances the effects of caffeine which can – in some cases – lead to dangerous cardiovascular effects like high blood pressure, fainting, heart attack and stroke, even in healthy individuals.
It is for this reason alone that you should first consult with your doctor prior to taking PhenRED.
