UberPHEN Platinum is an OTC weight loss aid that has been formulated to increase metabolism and fat burning as well as suppress appetite. It comes from Nantucket Nutritionals. The promise on the official product page is that by taking UberPHEN you can get the “lean, slim, and slender body you want” because it helps you to “lose weight fast” by combining “the most effective weight loss supplements available including Garcinia Cambogia, Green Coffee Bean Extract and Green Tea Extract.”
In addition to these three key ingredients, the formula also contains Glucomanan and a Proprietary Blend of Fruit Extracts which includes: African Mango, Grapefruit Extract, Acai Berry Extract, and Apple Cider Vinegar Extract.
Some research suggests that garcinia cambogia may help to prevent fat storage, increase exercise endurance and control appetite. Unfortunately, there is insufficient evidence to support these claims. Furthermore, this herb has been linked to certain unpleasant side effects including nausea, headache and digestive discomfort.
As for green coffee bean, studies have found that it may affect how the body handles metabolism and blood sugar. It may also help to decrease high blood pressure. However, there is no clinical proof that taking green coffee bean will result in weight loss. Furthermore, since it contains caffeine it can cause caffeine-related side effects like sleeplessness, restlessness, nervousness, stomach upset, increased heart and breathing rate, headache and anxiety among other unpleasant symptoms.
Green tea extract is believed to help reduce body weight and body mass index (BMI) in individuals who are obese. It can help to speed up metabolism and increase fat burning, particularly when combined with exercise. That being said, there have been studies that have shown green tea to have no effect on fat loss. The bottom line is that there is conflicting evidence regarding the effects of green tea and its effects on obesity and weight loss. As for side effects, caffeine-related side effects, such as those listed above are possible, particularly if green tea is taken in high doses.
The recommended dosage is to take 1-2 capsules daily, 30 minutes before a meal with 8 ounces of water. Users are also directed to use UberPHEN Platinum in conjunction with a diet and exercise program.
Although this dietary supplement contains ingredients that are commonly found in many non-prescription weight loss aids, it is still in your best interest to speak with your healthcare provider about whether or not this product is a safe and realistic choice for you.
