Metabazine is a thermogenic hypermetabolizer from VH Nutrition LLC. A “systemic metabolic accelerator,” it claims to be formulated to boost metabolism, decrease body fat levels, promote thermogenesis, and improve energy levels.
A dietary supplement designed for both adult men and women, this weight management aid is meant to be taken daily to help provide energy, increase metabolism and suppress appetite. It has been carefully formulated for individuals seeking real results without the unwanted side effects and additional costs associated with prescription medications, such as Adipex-P.
The Metabazine formula utilizes a variety of “ultra potent ingredients” to deliver immediate benefits. When this review was written, these ingredients included: Green Tea, Bitter Orange, Coleus Forskholii Root Extract, Fucoxanthin, Garcinia Cambogia, Tumeric, Ginger, Cassia Cinnamon, Black Pepper.
Based on the above ingredients list, it’s evident that Metabazine contains several substances that have been praised for their thermogenic and fat burning effects. Among these include its top three listed ingredients: green tea, bitter orange and coleus forskholi.
Although this may sound beneficial, you should know that none of these ingredients have ever been clinically proven effective for weight loss. Furthermore, one of the major downsides of Metabazine is that it contains bitter orange, also known as citrus aurantium.
Within bitter orange is a naturally occurring stimulant called synephrine. Like the stimulant caffeine, synephrine affects the central nervous system. It can squeeze blood vessels, raise blood pressure and cause the heart to beat faster.
This stimulant is considered to be particularly dangerous when it is combined with stimulants like caffeine or caffeine-containing herbs, such as the caffeine-containing herb camellia sinensis found in green tea. The combination of syneprhine and caffeine can increase the risk of severe side effects, such as high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke and fainting.
For this reason, it is strongly recommended that you do not take other stimulants and avoid caffeinated foods and beverages to reduce the risk of nervousness, hypertension and more serious side effects when taking Metabazine. In fact, to be on the safe side, it may be best for you to simply avoid taking Metabazine. There are many other non-prescription diet pills you can take that have safer ingredients.
That being said, if you should decide to take Metabazine, be sure to carefully follow usage instructions provided on the label or by your healthcare provider. You should also talk to your healthcare provider prior to taking this dietary supplement to make certain it is a safe choice for you.
When this Metabazine review was written, a single bottle containing 60 capsules could be purchased on the official VH Nutrition website for $27.99.
