PhenRx Topical Patches Review

PhenRX Topical Patches are a type of weight loss supplement that is sold in an alternative form to traditional pills. Patches gained a great deal of momentum through the popularity of smoking cessation patches, though the products sold in the weight loss category don’t have a very good reputation to go with them.

This is not necessarily to say that PhenRX Topical Patches wouldn’t work. It just means that they don’t happen to be in a sector of the dieting industry that is known for effectiveness.

According to the official webpage for this product on the manufacturer’s website, these patches need to be replaced only once per day in order to obtain all the necessary ingredients in the perfect balance. The manufacturer of this product, Nextgen Biolabs Inc., also offers a 100 percent money back guarantee to people who are interested in trying the product. This guarantee is for 30 days from the date of purchase (not the date of receipt) and is meant to be an unconditional, no questions asked guarantee.

The website specifically states that there are no hidden fees or recurring charges associated with this guarantee. It should also be noted that the full price of the product is returned, minus the cost of shipping, which means that any shipping paid to order the product and to return it are out of the customer’s pocket.

The marketing for this product calls this product one of the “best selling topical weight loss patch systems available in 2016.” That said, the statement doesn’t indicate where the claim came from, so this could just mean that it is among the company’s best sellers and not necessarily one of the top selling products within this category of the marketplace as a whole. It is unclear and data is not cited to add clarity.

The PhenRX Topical Patches are designed to provide users with an all-natural formula based on herbs and extracts for suppressing the appetite, boosting energy levels and the metabolic rate, and generating an overall sensation of wellbeing. It also claims to boost thyroid activity, “detox and cleanse” the body, provide “all day energy” (which is worrisome as it is supposed to be a 24 hour dose and there don’t appear to be directions as to what time of day is appropriate for application), and generate “dramatic weight loss quickly.”

At no point are studies cited to indicate that the company has found proof that the ingredients are linked to safety let alone the fast weight loss that it claims.

Ideal Protein’s Ideal Complete ReviewIdeal Protein’s Ideal Complete is a meal replacement product designed to be used on its own or as a part of the broader Ideal Protein weight loss system. This is a part of a sizeable category of products that use meal replacement products to ensure that dieters reduce their daily calorie intake.

To use this option to its fullest potential, dieters must choose several products along with Ideal Complete and must use the website, group meetings and solo dieting coach sessions to obtain a “smarter eating education.” In this way, they will be controlling their calories as they learn, and once they’re done learning, they will know how to reduce their daily calories without needing to entirely rely on the meal replacements.

Ideal Protein’s Ideal Complete comes in three possible drink flavors or a bar. The flavors of the drink are chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. The bar is a toffee and pretzel flavor. These products are meant to be used to replace whole food meals in order to ensure that a dieter keeps within a certain daily calorie range.

Unfortunately, these products are quite expensive and there is next to no information provided about them on the official website. The site is attractively designed and features large images of appealing-looking products. However, aside from brief statements such as “Spoil yourself with our sumptuous strawberry flavoured meal replacement drink,” and pointing out that the product is gluten-free, no other information is provided about them.

At the time of the writing of this review, no list of ingredients could be located on the official website. This makes it very difficult for dieters to be able to make an educated decision about whether or not they would like to choose the Ideal Complete product line for their own weight loss needs.

It is also important to note that if these products are used as a part of the program, the clinics are known to be extremely strict. In fact, there are several reports online from customers who have said that they were discharged from the programs after having admitted that they cheated on the rules. The program does not accept returns and will not issue refunds.

Considering the high cost, the lack of information provided to the dieter and the fact that it is extremely strict – and strict diets have a lower long-term success rate – it is unlikely that this product or program would be recommended by most doctors.

Nopalina Review

Napolina is a type of diet supplement pill that claims to help a user to become more healthy and to shed excess weight with greater ease. This is a product based on a fiber complex of both soluble and insoluble fiber, in addition to omega fatty acids (3, 6 and 9).

The official product website offers a limited amount of information regarding what the pills actually contain and what each of the identified substances are meant to do for a user. For example, some of the claims that are made about Napolina – such as supporting improved cardiovascular health – are based on studies suggesting that eating an adequate quantity of dietary fiber is good for the heart. However, the claims and the research mentioned in the marketing on the website are not actually specific to this product or any of the substances making up its formula.

That type of marketing tactic seems somewhat dubious as it leads customers to believe that there is research on the product – or at least some of the ingredients that comprise it – when there may not be any research backing these substances or the complete formula at all. With a marketing strategy such as this one, it’s always wise for a consumer to stay on his or her toes and carefully conduct his or her own research before purchasing the pills or using them.

The majority of the claims made about Napolina are general statements that could be made regarding any source of dietary fiber, from breakfast cereal to fruits and vegetables. That said, it should also be pointed out that many studies have pointed out that taking fiber through supplementation is not the same as obtaining it in food. Many fiber supplements are associated with a range of side effects and unwanted problems. Among the most problematic can be the dependency the body can form on fiber supplements. The body can come to depend on fiber supplements in order to be able to maintain its bowel function regularity. It is not uncommon for a person who stops the use of a fiber supplement to experience constipation, bloating, and a range of other uncomfortable and undesirable symptoms.

As there are no relevant studies about Napolina or its ingredients cited on the product’s official website, it is unclear whether these pills or their ingredients are linked with any of the problems frequently experienced through the use of fiber supplementation. Therefore, while there is the possibility that it could potentially provide the body with the same kind of benefits as ingesting dietary fiber through food, there is no way of confirming that from a scientific or medical perspective.

She Supps Slimmer Meal Replacement ReviewThe She Supps Slimmer Meal Replacement is one of several products sold under the She Supps brand. This particular product is a product meant to be consumed as a shake instead of a major meal. The idea behind this product is to provide the user with a nutritious meal with only a limited number of calories. In this way, a dieter may be able to lose more weight.

The official webpage for this product on the She Supps website claims that it provides users with a balanced carbohydrate to high quality protein ratio as well as a number of essential nutrients. They are all delivered in what it claims to be an easy to mix and delicious shake beverage.

This product is vegetarian friendly, low in fat and easy to store or bring with you when you travel or commute. That said, it does contain both dairy and gluten ingredients, so people with those dietary sensitivities may want to choose a different product. The manufacturer of this product was careful to label the product with those potential allergens in order to ensure that consumers can inform themselves.

The idea behind this product is that dieters can drink it instead of a full meal. It is convenient to prepare and to consume and is meant to offer an experience similar to drinking a “gourmet” milkshake using natural flavors. It is also designed to use protein to help reduce hunger while providing complex carbohydrates – for example, micronized oat flour – to ensure the user has the energy he or she needs to get through the day. Beyond that, the multivitamin complex provides the body with nutrition.

To use this product, the package directions recommend adding 2 scoops (the equivalent to 20 grams) of the product powder to a blender or shaker cup along with 300 milliliters (10 ounces) of water or milk. To give things a different edge, the package also recommends trying this shake with some fresh fruit or ice.

The She Supps Slimmer Meal Replacement is sold in four different flavors: chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and banana. Each jar contains 30 servings, which is a one month supply for a user replacing one meal per day.

At the time this review was written, the She Supps Slimmer Meal Replacement ingredients were: Protein Blend (Whey Protein Concentrate (Milk), Soya Protein Isolate, Milk Protein), Dextrose Monohydrate, Oat Flour, Waxy Maize Starch, Multivitamin Premix, Flavouring, Colouring, Stabilisers, Sweetener: Sucralose. Each serving provides 177 calories, 19.38 grams of carbs, 6.28 grams of fat, 10 grams of protein and 17 grams of sugar.

thinkThin High Protein Bars are a type of protein supplement meant to help people who are trying to lose weight. They are designed to provide a boost of protein while being low on the glycemic index.

The official website claims that each of the thinkThin High Protein Bars provides a user with 20 grams of protein. They also contain 0 grams of sugar. The idea is to provide a snack that will help a dieter to feel more full and to have that satisfied feeling last for a longer period of time. These bars are also gluten free, which can help to ensure that they’re more appropriate for individuals who are adhering to a gluten-free or low gluten diet.

The official description for these protein bars claims that they are made of a “balanced mix of quality ingredients.” Moreover, they are also coated in chocolate in order to ensure that these snacks taste great, too.

Customers have the option to purchase these products when they want them or to subscribe to an auto-ship program. At the time of the writing of this review, customer feedback on the quality of this auto delivery service was not available. Therefore, it’s not possible to tell whether or not the service is reliable and/or easy to cancel when desired.

This is actually important as auto-ship programs are notoriously difficult to cancel and often result in a customer receiving at least one – if not several – additional orders beyond the point that he or she had hoped to stop. This can mean that any benefit of convenience or savings that had been observed throughout the use of the program is negated in frustration and added expense at the end.

Among the flavors available for the thinkThin High Protein Bars are: lemon delight: chocolate strawberry, maple almond, chunky peanut butter, creamy peanut butter, brownie crunch, chocolate espresso, chocolate fudge, white chocolate, cookies & crème, dark chocolate, and caramel fudge.

These bars are also sold in various variety packs, including the chocolate lovers high protein variety pack, which contains 15 bars, the high protein complete variety pack which contains 12 bars, and the nut lovers high protein variety pack which contains 12 bars.

Every bar within the thinkThin High Protein line has a score of 55 or lower on the glycemic index. The purpose of producing products with this score is to ensure they will result in more gradual blood sugar level changes and slow digestion – therefore, a feeling of lasting fullness.

Purium CONTROL Pre-Meal Capsules review

Purium is a weight loss program that claims to be the “FASTEST, healthiest, simplest,” in the world. This program includes a large number of different instructions and products that need to be used in order to follow it properly. That said, it also includes free support from a staff naturopath to anyone who has subscribed.

A part of the Purium weight loss program is the use of CONTROL Pre-Meal Capsules. These are appetite suppressants, among other things. They are meant to reduce the impact of a meal on a person’s ability to lose weight. That said, its description on the official website doesn’t actually say very much in terms of solid claims. At best, it says that the product “may” have certain benefits.

For instance, among the four benefits listed for Purium CONTROL Pre-Meal Capsules, the official site says they “may” help to reduce the appetite and curb food cravings. It also says it “may” support blood glucose stabilization. This supplement “may” also boost endurance, mental alertness and stamina. The only claim that is conclusively made is that it will neutralize starches in processed carbohydrate containing foods.

The official description claims the product has been designed to make it possible for a user to comfortably eat less food. It also says it was made to reduce the carb impact of sugars, which will in turn reduce the risk that they will be converted into fat. The website does not discuss the ingredients in the product or how they are meant to live up to the statements made about its use.

The site recommends that the product be used with any weight loss regimen and says it can also be combined with their CONTROL Whole Food Meal. At the time of the writing of this review, that second product could not be found anywhere on the website, including in the complete list of products they sell in the site’s “Quick Shop” option.

Every bottle contains 180 capsules, which makes up 30 servings. This means that the user will need to be willing to take several capsules every day to follow the recommended usage directions. The package label states that two capsules need to be taken one hour ahead of each of the three main meals of the day. This is a total of six pills per day. They should be taken with eight ounces of water. That said, if a meal is especially fatty or if it is followed by a dessert, an additional capsule should be taken, for a total of three capsules an hour ahead of that meal.

Nutrislim Plus Powder reviews

Nutrislim Plus Powder is a type of dietary supplement that is meant to be used for people who are seeking a way to lose weight naturally. It promises to help deliver a body that is slender, slim and healthy. It is also meant to be used as a part of an overall fit and healthful lifestyle.

Nutrislim Plus Powder is what is known as an Ayurvedic Food Supplement. According to the official website for this product, this means that it is 100 percent natural and safe with no side effects. For anyone who is experienced within the supplement and weight loss industry, that statement alone should send out a large number of warning signs. This is because there is no product in existence – including regular foods that we eat – for which that claim can honestly be made.

Just because a product is natural, it doesn’t mean that it is also safe nor does it mean that it won’t come with side effects. After all, there are huge numbers of poisons that are found in nature, but clearly they are wrought with side effects and safety concerns. Therefore, any claims from a company that would say that its products are 100 percent natural and safe with no side effects should be at least worth further investigation if they are not passed over altogether.

After all, if those are the claims being made, one must wonder if the company is actually ill-informed enough to believe this to be true or if it is trying to deceive its customers. Neither of those situations is very promising when it comes to purchasing a product that you will take for the purposes of your health.

Another sketchy part of this product’s marketing is that while its official description from the manufacturer refers to “a combination of medicinal herbs used in Ayurveda for centuries,” it never specifically names any of those ingredients. This means that it does not provide customers the opportunity to further educate themselves about the formula and whether or not it would be safe and appropriate for them to use. In fact, a customer couldn’t even check it to make sure it is free of known allergens.

As a result, the company is expecting its customers to simply blindly believe that some sort of ancient ingredients that haven’t been used by any other supplement company will be natural, safe and free of side effects. Any doctor would tell a patient to pass on this product and move on to something else.

Solaray Yerba Mate is an over the counter diet supplement. It is designed around a single active ingredient. That substance has spent a great deal of time in the media spotlight over the last little while. That said, it’s important to recognize that media hype and scientific study are not the same thing.

While the media attention did help Solaray Yerba Mate to stand out in the weight loss industry, it takes more than that to prove that it is safe and effective. Therefore, if you are considering this product, it’s a good idea to talk about it with your doctor and then do your own research into yerba mate, the active ingredient about which it has made all its promises.

Yerba mate is a type of plant extract that contains a significant amount of caffeine. In fact, it is for its content of that stimulant that it is most frequently used in diet pill formulations. Besides the caffeine in this ingredient, there has yet to be anything about it that has been proven to have a direct connection between its use in supplements and weight loss. At the time of the writing of this review, a reputable study published in a peer reviewed medical journal could not be found indicating that yerba mate had any relationship with weight loss outside its caffeine content.

This suggests that any pill based exclusively on yerba mate may not be anything more than a glorified caffeine pill with a higher price tag. And yet, this doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything to its use. There are people who credit their ability to lose weight to products that include this ingredient.

Moreover, the benefits of caffeine itself should not be ignored. That substance has been associated not only with energy boosting – which can be very important to keeping up motivation as well as maintaining positive performance while exercising – but it may also boost the metabolism for faster fat burning and it may reduce the appetites of some dieters, making it easier to cut back on calories.

Still, caffeine has also been associated with unwanted side effects when taken in large doses. These side effects can include jitters, anxiety, heart palpitations, increased heart rate, elevated blood pressure and nausea. This can worsen if this product is combined with the use of other foods or beverages that contain caffeine, such as coffee, tea, some sodas or chocolate.

Absolutely Full is a diet supplement that is available online without a doctor’s prescription. It is made and sold by a company called Absolute Nutrition, which sells a range of different types of health and wellness supplement.

In this specific case, the diet pill is designed to provide dieters with relief from food cravings, appetite suppression, the ability to achieve a feeling of fullness more quickly, and improved satisfaction from smaller meals. Overall, this is describing one effect that can benefit the dieter in several different ways.

That said, the description of the product also suggests that it functions by stopping too many calories from being able to enter the bloodstream. It’s not entirely clear how those two functions – appetite suppression and calorie blocking are connected.

That said, the product becomes easier to investigate and understand when taking into consideration the fact that it contains only a single active ingredient. That substance is called LuraLean proplomannann. That ingredient is actually a form of dietary fiber that is not entirely unlike glucomannan, which is another dietary fiber which is commonly used in diet pills meant for suppressing the appetite.

Moreover, those two ingredients are both taken from the same genus of plant: Amorphophallus. They both work in a similar way in that they are both consumed dry along with a lot of water. The water is then absorbed by the fiber, turning into a gel-like substance. However, people who like this ingredient say that the effect of this ingredient is notably more powerful than that of glucomannan. Science has yet to support this claim.

There are three main ways in which proplomannan is believed to be likely helpful to dieters. The first is that it expands in water, causing the stomach to stretch, which makes the stomach send signals to the brain to say that it is full so that hunger pangs are not necessary. Next, it also absorbs bile acids within the small intestines so that they cannot be used to break down dietary fats. This means that fewer food fats are digested and more are sent right out with the waste. Thirdly, it slows down the rate at which the stomach empties. The longer it stays full, the longer the feeling of fullness lasts. This also reduces sugar cravings because it decreases the spiking and crashing of blood glucose levels.

Before using this product, it is important to speak with a doctor as it is not safe and appropriate for all dieters.

Nutrabolic Thermal XTC is a weight loss supplement that is meant to be used by dieters who are using exercise as their main way to lose weight. The design of this product is such that it should be used ahead of workouts in order to boost both performance and results.

It comes in both capsule and powder form so it can be taken as a pill or it can be mixed into a liquid to take it as a beverage. That way, no matter what your preference, you will be able to take this supplement in that form.

The design of Nutrabolics Thermal XTC is meant to provide users with thermogenic fat-burning, “euphoric” energy and focus, food cravings control, and fat storage suppression. The formula for this product is listed as containing the following ingredients: L-tyrosine, green coffee bean extract, caffeine anhydrous, Malabar tamarind, African wild mango, evodia, chundan, nutmeg and guggulsterone.

Those ingredients are supposed to provide users with the full list of benefits as described on the website. While it is nearly certain that most people who use this product will feel an increase in energy levels due to the number of stimulants found in this product, it is unclear as to whether or not the other benefits will be experienced. The reason is that most of the ingredients on this list are not proven in medical studies.

Just because they’re not proven, it doesn’t mean that they won’t work. However, it does mean that there isn’t any proof of a direct connection between usage in a supplement and the promised outcomes. Furthermore, there is no way to know the ideal dose of the ingredient in order to provide the desired benefit without leading to side effects.

One very strong positive point that can be made about the information provided about this product is that the quantity of every ingredient is provided. This is a rare feature in a website of this nature. This can be very helpful in allowing customers to research the ingredients and to know what type of reaction they can expect from each one. This is particularly important in the case of the stimulants contained within this product.

It appears as though every dose of this product would provide the equivalent caffeine to about a cup and a half of coffee, consumed all at once. While some people will not have a problem with this, others will have side effects such as jitters, anxiety, diarrhea, nausea, headache, an increased heartbeat and a rise in blood pressure.
