Phenadrine Thermo Cut is a thermogenic fat burner that has been designed to increase alertness and energy. It also contains appetite suppressant properties and is manufactured by Biogen. The name of this weight loss product reveals that the manufacturer intended to market it as an over-the-counter alternative to Phentermine and other similar prescription weight loss drugs like Adipex.
Within the Phenadrine Thermo Cut formula are the following ingredients: Coleus Forskholi, Naringin, Green Tea, Caffeine, Yerba Mate Leaf, L-Tyrosine, Nicotinamide, Gymnema Sylvestre extract, Bacopa Monniera Ext, Evodia Rutaecarpa 10%, Theobromine, Barberry Bark Ext 60%, Curcuma Longa, Bioperine, Caralluma Fimbriata.
There are a couple of troubling aspects about Phenadrine Thermo Cut. The first is that it contains 15 active ingredients. The more ingredients a formula contains, the less likely it is to have sufficient amounts of each ingredient for them to be effective.
Secondly, it contains multiple stimulants including caffeine, yerba mate, and theobromine. The more stimulants in a diet pill, the more likely it is that it can cause sleep disturbances, or other unpleasant side effects like anxiety, jitters, headache, mood swings, digestive upset, heart palpitations, etc.
Each of the ingredients within the Phenadrine Thermo Cut formula are supposed to help improve the product’s efficacy for helping a person lose weight. For instance, yerba mate, caffeine, and evodia rutaecarpa may help to encourage fat burning and boost energy. Meanwhile, Gymnema sylvestre is believed to help reduce sugar cravings, coleus forskholi supposedly has a direct effect on the thyroid, and caralluma faimbriata may help to make a person feel full.
While all of this sounds very promising, the problem is that there is absolutely no proof that any of these ingredients can help a person lose weight. Caffeine has been proven to help increase energy and alertness, but beyond that there isn’t any guarantee that this weight loss supplement will do anything more for you than boost your energy, which is definitely not the same thing as causing fat loss.
Another alarming fact about this product is that the directions for use state that 1 to 2 capsules should be taken twice per day in the beginning, and then gradually this dosage should be increased according to tolerance. In total, a user can take up to 4 capsules, 2 to 3 times daily, 30-40 minutes before breakfast or morning workout, 30-40 minutes before lunch, and 30-40 minutes before a mid-afternoon meal or workout. Needless to say, that is a high dosage of stimulants.
For best results, users are instructed to take the pills for 5 consecutive days, go off them for 2 days, and then continue to repeat this cycle.
At the time this review was written, Phenadrine Thermo Cut was sold online but was available only in South Africa. Anyone interested in taking this product should first consult with their healthcare provider.
