PhenterMAXINE is a dietary supplement that claims it can provide users with extreme weight loss. Although at the time this review was written PhenterMAXINE did not have its own website, its Amazon sales page states these are “pharmaceutical grade quality diet pills developed as an extra strength supplement for rapid weight loss.” It supposedly works fast and is an “ultra strong formula.”
More specifically, this product has been designed to provide users with appetite suppression, helps them to burn fat, and boosts metabolism. The only way to determine how effective these diet pills are is to take a look at their ingredients.
The PhenterMAXINE formula contains: Vitamin C, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Phenylethylamine Hydrochloride, Caffeine, Green Tea Extract, Flaxseed Oil Power, Bitter Orange Fruit, Guarana Extract, Green Coffee Bean Extract, Cape Aloe leaf Extract, Theobromine, Yohimbe Bark Extract.
One quick glance at these ingredients is enough to raise a red flag. For starters, this diet supplement is loaded with stimulants including: phenylethylamine hydrochloride, caffeine, green tea, synephrine (found in bitter orange), guarana, green coffee bean and yohimbe bark. With this many stimulants, it is probable that when taking PhenterMAXINE users are likely to feel alert and/or energized, which may help to improve exercise performance and encourage activity. On the flip side of the coin, users are also likely to experience unpleasant side effects.
Some side effects related to stimulant ingredients, such as caffeine, include jitters, rapid heartbeat, heart palpitations, anxiety, upset stomach, headache, mood changes, insomnia, etc. The reason why the risk of experiencing unwanted side effects is very high with this product is it contains stimulants, such as synephrine, which can actually enhance the effects of caffeine. For some people, this could be very dangerous, as the FDA has found that combining these two substances can lead to dangerous cardiovascular effects, such as high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke.
None of the ingredients in this diet pill have ever been scientifically proven effective or safe for aiding individuals in losing weight. That being the case, any weight loss claims made about this product are completely unsubstantiated.
PhenterMAXINE is meant to be taken in combination with a sensible diet and exercise and the recommended dose is to take 1 or 2 capsules 30 minutes prior to meals. At the time this review was written, a bottle containing 60 capsules could be purchased for $23.98
Although this is an OTC product, you would be wise to speak with your healthcare provider before taking PhenterMAXINE.
