Phen Thin 375 is a non-prescription diet pill that has been formulated with natural ingredients to accelerate metabolism, boost energy levels and curb cravings. Based on its name it is clear that the manufacturer designed the product to be an OTC alternative to phentermine and other similar medications used to treat obesity. It is meant to be used in conjunction with a reduced calorie diet and regular exercise to blast fat and slim down the body.
Phen Thin 375 contains a proprietary blend composed of Bauhinia Purpurea L. (Leaf and Pod) Extract, Garcina Cambogia, Norcoclaurine HCI, Hemerocallis Fulva (Flower) Heat Concentrated Extract, Yohimbe (Bark) Extract, Caffeine.
Each of these ingredients is believed to provide a benefit that supposedly helps individuals attempting to lose weight. For instance, Bauhinia Purpurea L. may be important for healthy metabolism. Garcina Cambogia is thought to have a positive effect on metabolism and suppress appetite. Norcoclaurine HCI is said to help burn fat. Hemerocallis Fulva may function as an antidepressant and may help to boost mood. Yohimbe (Bark) Extract may help to boost energy and help burn fat. Caffeine has been proven to enhance energy and alertness. It may be particularly beneficial in helping users burn more fat when taken before exercise.
That being said, be advised that there is no clinical proof that taking any of these ingredients (including caffeine) will result in or assist in the reduction of fat that will lead to weight loss.
According to the directions on the bottle, users should take 1 capsule on an empty stomach before breakfast for the first three days. On the fourth day, a second capsule should be taken 6 – 8 hours after breakfast and on day 5 or 6, two capsules should be taken in the morning and a 3rd capsule should be taken in the evening. Users are instructed not to exceed 3 capsules in a 24 hour period and are also instructed not to take Phen Thin 375 for longer than an 8 week period. Users can take the pill again, but only after a 4 week break. It is not made clear why this break is necessary.
That being said, based on these dosage directions, this raises some notable concerns about the safety of this product. For starters, each pill contains more than one stimulant and – more importantly – 135 mg of caffeine, which is slightly more than 1 cup of coffee. Taking the recommended 3 pills a day will not only dramatically boost the chance of experiencing side effects, such as jitters, anxiety, racing heartbeat, headache, upset stomach, etc., but will also significantly increase the risk of sleep disruption or insomnia, especially since the third pill is to be taken in the evening.
It was very surprising to discover this dosage recommendation considering most OTC diet pill products that contain caffeine caution users not to take a dose any later than the early afternoon to avoid sleep troubles.
At the time that this review was written, a single bottle containing 90 capsules (a 30 day supply) cost $35.17 on Amazon.
It is strongly recommended that you first speak with your doctor before taking Phen Thin 375.
