Phen700 is marketed as a “powerful pharmaceutical grade fat burner”. It is not a prescription pill and at the time this review was written, the official product page claimed that it was a “new re-formulated Phentemine”, also known as Phen375. Essentially, it is an over-the-counter fat burner and appetite suppressant that is an alternative to the prescription diet pill, Phentermine.
Manufactured in the United States and produced in GMP certified facilities this product, which claims to increase the body’s fat burning ability, suppress appetite, and results in an average weight loss of 3 to 6 pounds per week, sounds highly impressive. That being said, just how great is it?
First, let’s check out its ingredients. When this review was written, a supplement facts sheet was not provided. However, according to the official Phen700 website, the product’s formulation was made up of: Phenylethylamine, Synephrine, Caffeine, Yohimbine Extract, Inositol Niacinate, Nettle Leaf Extract, Picamilon.
Some of these ingredients may look familiar to you and others may not. The following is how each one is reportedly beneficial for weight loss in regard to the Phen700 formula:
Phenylethylamine (PEA) is a stimulatory transmitter that is believed to improve mood, increase alertness and boost exercise performance. Synephrine is a naturally occurring stimulant in citrus aurantium (bitter orange) that is believed to help burn fat and increase thermogenesis. Caffeine is a stimulant that helps to boost energy, alertness, and even causes appetite suppression in some people. In the Phen700 formula, caffeine apparently works as a catalyst and boosts the effects of every ingredient to increase thermogenic response, as well as mental awareness and energy levels.
Yohimbine, another stimulant, has been found in some research to block a mechanism in fat cells that hinders weight loss, so it helps to speed up the fat loss process. Inositol Niacinate helps to lower bad cholesterol and boost good cholesterol. Nettle Leaf Extract reduces water retention and can also act as a pain reliever. Picamilon, according to the Phen700 website, prepares the body so that the other ingredients can work optimally.
Right away, what you have likely noticed is that Phen700 contains multiple stimulant ingredients. This increases the risk of negative side effects, such as insomnia, jitters, anxiety, heart palpitations, etc. Furthermore, it contains both synephrine and caffeine, which the FDA has warned can be a dangerous combination. Taken together, these ingredients can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. This product also contains a diuretic (nettle leaf), which increase the frequency of urination. It is important to drink sufficient amounts of water to avoid dehydration.
When all is said and done, Phen700 makes some pretty big promises that it likely can’t keep. The average person losing between 3 and 6 pounds per week is unlikely, especially considering all the claims made about this diet supplements incredible weight loss effects are unsubstantiated. Furthermore, none of the ingredients have ever been proven effective for causing weight loss directly or helping a person lose weight.
Prior to taking this product, it would be prudent to first speak with your healthcare provider.
At the time this review was written, a one-month supply of Phen700 cost $67.00.
