Adiphene is an over-the-counter (OTC) dietary supplement that comes from RDK Global Pharmaceuticals. It claims to bind fat, lower appetite, boost metabolism, and burn fat. Based on the name of the product, it should come as no surprise that this non-prescription weight loss pill is marketed as an alternative to the well known prescription drugs Adipex and Phentermine, as Adiphene is clearly a blend of the two product names. That being said, Adiphene is an entirely different product and is in no way related to either Adipex or Phentermine.
The way that Adiphene supposedly works is it helps users burn stored fat and it binds to some of the fat that is ingested, preventing it from being absorbed by the body, allowing it to be eliminated as waste. It also claims to reduce appetite and makes a person feel less hungry and fuller for longer. Additionally, it can boost metabolism and energy, enabling greater fat burning results.
According to the official product page at the time this review was written, the Adiphene formula contains 5 stimulants (bitter orange, chromium picolinate, guaranna extract, ginseng panax root extract, cacao extract) 2 thermogenics (cinnamon extract, cayenne capsicum), 1 hunger reducer (glucomannan), 1 fat binder (chitosan extract) and 3 fat metabolizers (vitamin B6, L-carnitine HCL, ginger root extract).
Despite providing brief information about each of these ingredients, explaining how they are said to be beneficial for those seeking to lose weight, and mentioning a few studies, none of the ingredients used have ever been clinically proven effective for weight loss in humans. Furthermore, some of the ingredients are not even considered safe.
For instance, bitter orange (synephrine) can increase the risk or high blood pressure, fainting and other severe side effects such as heart attack and stroke when taken with other stimulants. Considering this product contains four additional stimulants aside from bitter orange, this knowledge alone is enough to raise some red flags.
Due to the fact that this product contains multiple stimulants, it has the potential to bring about some very powerful adverse side effects. Some of these may include shaking, tremors, nervousness, anxiety, insomnia, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, diarrhea, nausea, and even convulsions, stroke and heart attack.
