Fenphedra is a non-prescription diet pill that claims it is a “Hardcore Weight Loss Supplement”. The name of the diet pill suggests that it provides benefits similar to prescription drugs, like Phentermine, which previously came in a form that is now banned called Fen Phen, and ephedra, which was a popular substance used in weight loss products until the U.S. and other countries banned it after it was revealed to be the cause behind more than 100 deaths. That being said, Fenphedra does not contain ephedra.
The ingredients in the Fenphedra formula, according to the official website at the time this review was written, include the following: Green Coffee Bean, Chormax, DiCaffeine Malate and Phenylethylamine (PEA).
Although this may sound like an impressive formula, it is, unfortunately, a blend of unproven and hyped ingredients and stimulants. Green coffee bean extract, for example, is one of the ingredients that gained popularity primarily because of being mentioned on the Dr. Oz show, a result better known as the “Dr. Oz Effect”. However, studies conducted on green coffee bean extract are insufficient and the substance is still in a very early testing phase. Furthermore, some tests involving rats that were given green coffee bean showed certain diabetic symptoms.
Another important aspect to point out is that this substance, as well as dicaffeine malate and PEA are all stimulants. This many stimulants increases the risk of adverse affects, especially in anyone who has a sensitivity to them. Many of the side effects associated with stimulants can be uncomfortable such as insomnia, jitters, heart palpitations, mood changes, headache, nausea, digestive upset, etc.
Each box of Fenphedra contains 69 capsules. It is recommended that users take 1 capsule 30 minutes before breakfast and 30 minutes before lunch. One box lasts for about a month. When this review was written, the official website offered a 100% money back guarantee. However, the guarantee is unclear as it only says you can be refunded up to one box of the product if you are unsatisfied, but does not say for how long the guarantee lasts. The refund does not cover the cost of shipping.
Before taking Fenphedra it is in your best interest to investigate the ingredients within the product. Do not simply trust the marketing material and claims made by the manufacturer.
It is also highly recommended that you first consult with your doctor to make sure that this weight loss supplement is the safe and right choice for you.
