APiFAST is a dietary supplement marketed for weight loss. It has been formulated to suppress appetite as well as increase energy and fat metabolism. It has been designed as an over-the-counter (OTC) alternative to prescription diet drugs like Adipex and phentermine. This isn’t only apparent by the name of the product but also by its white and blue speckled tablets.
The APiFAST formula consists of a proprietary blend made up of 2-Phenylethylamine HCL, Caffeine, Hordenine Hydrochloride, Yohimbe Hydrochloride, Synephrine Hydrochloride. One tablet is one serving. However, on the supplement facts list, there is no indication as to how much of each ingredient is in the formula.
Essentially, based on the above ingredients, it’s clear that APiFAST is composed mostly of stimulants. This means that there is a good chance that you can expect a boost in energy and mental alertness, which may help to improve fat burning, especially when combined with physical exercise. On the other hand, it also means that there is a greater risk of unpleasant side effects, such as increased blood pressure, insomnia, jitters, rapid heartbeat, anxiety, dizziness, and upset stomach among others.
It is also worth noting that this supplement combines both caffeine and synephrine, the naturally occurring stimulant in citrus aurantium (bitter orange). Synephrine can enhance the effects of caffeine. This doesn’t just include the good effects, but the bad ones as well. The FDA has warned that combining these two ingredients can increase the risk of high blood pressure, fainting, stroke and heart attack, even in healthy individuals.
Due to the fact that it is unknown how much of each ingredient is in each pill there is no way of knowing just how small or large this risk of such effects would be.
Unfortunately, as is the case with many OTC Adipex alternatives, the claims made about the product are unsubstantiated. There is no proof that taking these pills will lead to a suppressed appetite, faster metabolism or more energy. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that you will lose weight taking APiFAST.
Be that as it may, remember that if you do choose to take this pill, even if it does provide you with some benefit, don’t forget that it is weight loss aid. You will still need to watch what you eat and how much you eat as well as engage in regular exercise to drop the pounds.
At the time that this review was written, a single bottle of APiFAST cost $29.97 on Amazon. Prior to taking this supplement you should first speak with your healthcare provider.
