T5 Turbo – Phentramine-RX: Extreme Fat Burner is an OTC diet pill from Optimum-FX. The name of this product draws close associations with the weight loss drug Phentermine, a potent appetite suppressant prescribed to excessively overweight or obese individuals to help them lose weight. T5 Turbo is a dietary supplement that is supposed to speed up your metabolism, reduce your appetite, and provide maximum fat burning, so you can lose weight fast.
The active ingredients in T5 Turbo include: Alpha Lipoic Acid, Caffeine Anhydrous Extract, Citrus Aurantium Whole Fruit, and L-Tyrosine.
Each of these ingredients has been scientifically studied. Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) may lower blood sugar levels. Citrus aurantium (bitter orange) contains the stimulant synephrine, which is believed to increase resting metabolic rate and energy expenditure. Caffeine anhydrous may increase metabolism and the rate of fat oxidation in the body. L-Tyrosine may increase energy levels and some believe it helps with appetite suppression.
While all of these ingredients appear to have the potential to aid with weight loss, the trouble is that not enough research has been conducted on any of them to prove that that effectively help reduced weight. In addition, T5 Tubro – Phentramine-RX contains multiple stimulants, which could be problematic for those who have sensitivities or allergies to stimulants. What’s more, the FDA has cautioned that taking synephrine, especially when it is combined with caffeine, increases the risk of serious cardiovascular effects, including fainting, increased blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke.
Due to the fact that this diet pill carries the risk of certain side effects, such as insomnia, jitters, headache, heart palpitations, anxiety, etc., it would be in your best interest to consult with your medical practitioner before taking this product, especially if you are currently taking any other medication or supplements, or you have an existing health condition.
The suggested dose is to take 1 capsule with a glass of water, 20 minutes prior to breakfast. Once users have assessed their tolerance, they can take 1 more capsule 20 minutes before lunch or in the early afternoon before a workout. Users are cautioned not to exceed more than 2 pills per day and are also warned not to take a pill any later than 8 hours before bed (this is to help prevent sleep problems).
