Phenterex is a dietary supplement designed for weight loss. It is a non-prescription, all-natural product. The manufacturer claims that the diet pill’s key benefits include burning fat, boosting fat burning metabolism, increasing energy, boosting thermogenic body heat and appetite suppression. Based on its name – Phenterex- one can assume the product was meant to be marketed as an OTC alternative to phentermine and similar prescription diet drugs.
According to the official website, at the time this review was written, the aim of the product is to help those who take it lose weight quickly and reshape their “body easily by melting away flab, fat and cellulite.” With a statement such as this one, this already raises a few red flags about the product and its claims. While losing weight can help reduce the appearance of cellulite in some people, there is no product that has ever been proven to “melt away” cellulite.
The ingredients within the Phenterex formula include: Vitamin B-6, Iodine, Chromium, Guarana, Theobromine, Green Tea Leaf, Garcinia Cambogia, Chitosan, Gymnema, Banaba, Calcium Pyruvate, Apple Cider Vinegar, Grapefruit, Coleus Forskohlii, Whie Willow Bark, Uva Ursi, Juniper Berry, Buchu Leaves, and Cayenne Pepper.
While many of the above ingredients are commonly featured in a number of non-prescription weight loss products, none of them have ever been clinical proven to be beneficial or effective for weight loss. Thus, there is a zero guarantee that you will lose weight while taking this pill.
Instructions on how to take this product have not been provided on the official product page. That being said, due to the fact that the formula contains more than one stimulant (ex. Guarana and green tea leaf), it would be in the users best interest not to take it too close to when they will sleep, as it could cause insomnia. Other possible side effects that may occur when taking this product include: dizziness, headache, upset stomach, heartburn, flushing, drowsiness, nausea, jitters and abdominal gas.
It is recommended for Phenterex to be used in conjunction with a complete weight loss program that includes exercise and a healthy diet. Anyone who is interested in taking this product should first consult with their healthcare provider to ensure that it is safe for them. This is especially true for those who have existing medical conditions or who are currently taking medications.
At the time this review was written, a one month supply of Phenterex (60 tablets) was $44.98.
