PhenPLUS is an over-the-counter diet pill from BSkinny Global. This product supposedly controls your appetite by reducing your food cravings and also works as a fat burner and energy booster. It claims to contain the most powerful fat burning ingredients that promote rapid fat loss. By taking this dietary supplement and combining it with regular exercise and a healthy diet, apparently you can lose up to 1 pound per day and up to 30 pounds per month, safely and quickly.
With claims like these, PhenPLUS already sounds far too good to be true, especially considering its weight loss claims of up to 1 pound per day is completely unrealistic as the average person loses up to 2 pounds per week when following a safe and healthy weight management plan.
Be that as it may, while you’re not going to lose a pound a day on PhenPLUS, one of the only ways to determine the effectiveness and safety of a weight loss aid is to look at its ingredients. In terms of this product, the formulation is composed of Vitamin B6 and the following Proprietary Blend: Caffeine Anhydrous, Schisandra, L-Arginine, Beta Alanine, Guarana Seed Extract, Uva Ursi, Capsicum, Garcinia Cambogia, Raspberry Ketone, Green Coffee Bean Extract, Tribulus Extract.
Each serving (2 capsules) contains 936mg of the proprietary blend. While this is good to know, it is not revealed how much of each ingredient within the blend is present in each serving. Due to the fact that this formula contains more than one stimulant (caffeine, guarana and green coffee bean) and caffeine is the first listed ingredient, it is likely that there is a high dose of caffeine in each serving, which may prove to be more of hindrance than a benefit to some people.
The reason is that the suggested dose is to take 1 serving, twice per day (a total of 4 capsules) with an 8 ounce glass of water. This is a lot of stimulants to ingest in one day. Furthermore, while caffeine can boost your energy, your mental focus and help to increase fat burning when combined with physical activity as well as even lead to short-term appetite suppression for some, the cost of such benefits may come in the form of unwanted side effects. These may include: insomnia, jitters, rapid heartbeat and breathing, heart palpitations, headache, anxiety, mood swings, upset stomach and ringing in the ears among other unpleasant effects.
The bottom line is that there is nothing really special about PhenPLUS or its ingredients. It is simply another OTC alternative to phentermine that cannot live up to its claims. That said, if this product does interest you, at the time that this review was written it could be purchased on Amazon for $22.79. Still, prior to purchasing it, you would be wise to consult with your healthcare provider.
