Apidren PM ReviewApidren PM is a caffeine-free dietary supplement designed to help you continue your fat burning and weight loss efforts, even while you sleep. It is made in the USA and comes from a company called NutriPharm. The company also produces a product called Apidren, It is common for many users, who are seeking 24-hour fat burning and other weight management benefits to take both the Apidren and Apidren PM products.

Apidren PM is free of stimulants, so you can take it at nighttime without worrying about it affecting your sleep. Furthermore, in addition to being designed to aid in weight loss while you sleep, the products ingredients may also help you obtain a more restful slumber.

When this review of Apidren PM was written, it was composed of the following ingredients: Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Chromium, GABA, Irvingia Gabonensis, Magnolia Bark Extract, Pellodendron Amurense Bark Extract, Melatonin, LactoSpore.

The suggested use is to take 2 capsules with 8 – 12 ounces of water approximately 1 – 2 hours before bedtime. Users are cautioned not to drive or operate heavy machinery when taking Apidren PM.

Essentially, the mixture of herbs that make up the Apidren PM formula may help regulate blood sugar levels, burn fat, breakdown fat and help the body relax.

That being said, it is highly unlikely that you will experience measureable fat loss from taking Apidren PM. The reason is that no matter if it helps you burn or breakdown fat, the only way to shed pounds is by combining a healthy calorie-conscious diet with regular exercise. You’re not going to be burning tons of fat while you’re immobile and sleeping.

That being said, one way that Apidren PM may be able to benefit some people is by helping them to get a more restful sleep. If this product does manage to do this (keeping in mind that it has never been studied or proven to be effective in this way), it could be beneficial to your overall health and weight loss goals. The reason is that regular restful sleep can improve your health and benefit your weight loss goals by helping you maintain a high-functioning metabolism.

Prior to taking Apidren PM, it is strongly recommended that you first run your intentions to do so by your healthcare provider to make sure this is a safe option for you. This is especially important if you are pregnant, nursing, have a medical condition or are currently taking medication.

BioFitea Herbal Dietary Tea Review

BioFitea Herbal Dietary Tea is an over the counter supplement that is taken in the form of a beverage instead of a pill like a capsule or tablet. This product is meant to help dieters who are trying to lose weight but at the same time, it is also geared toward individuals who are seeking a better fitness level, as well.

This product is sold on a number of different websites, but at the time this review was written, its own official website or a page on an official manufacturer website could not be located. This makes it rather difficult for a consumer to be able to inform him or herself about the product through the manufacturer’s own information. That said, for the purposes of this review, information was gleaned from what was shared on retailer and online market websites where the product was being sold.

According to the product description used for BioFitea Herbal Dietary Tea on Amazon.com, a user of this product will be able to improve his or her weight loss efficiency by “flushing fats and toxins.” That said, it does not make any additional effort to explain what that means or how it is meant to happen as a result of the ingredients in the product. The description also states that using it promotes a healthy digestive system. Again, aside from the claim itself, no additional information or explanation is provided.

This product’s description suggests that either it is meant to work as a fat blocker product or it reflects a rather strange lack of understanding of the way fat loss works in the body. If that fats that it claims to help a person flush are dietary fats found in foods, it means that the product claims to include ingredients that stop the body from absorbing some dietary fat from consumed foods, causing it to travel through the body and head out with the waste, undigested.

On the other hand, if it is claiming that fats stored on the body are somehow detaching and are entering the digestive tract only to be flushed away, then it is a strongly deceptive statement and should not be believed at all.

Unfortunately, the description did not contain a full list of the ingredients in this product. It identified only senna leaves, which are known to work as a type of laxative. Laxatives do not promote fat loss. Instead, they produce only temporary weight loss by causing water loss and relieving constipation. The weight soon returns once the body is rehydrated.

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.

Nature's Way Curica Turmeric ReviewNature’s Way Curica Turmeric is a natural supplement product meant to help people who are trying to live a more active lifestyle for better health or weight management. This product is geared specifically toward easing the pain that can occur from overextension during a fitness routine or other physical workout.

While Nature’s Way Curica Turmeric is not meant to help dieters directly with weight loss, it can play a helpful role in making sure the exercise component of the weight loss strategy is an effective one.

This particular formula is based on the curcuminoids found within turmeric, but it has been carefully designed to ensure that they are bioavailable. The reason is that the benefits of turmeric may have considerable potential, but the substance can be difficult for the body to absorb. Therefore, choosing products or forms of the ingredient that are more bioavailable – that is, that the body will absorb more readily – is quite important.

One serving of Nature’s Way Curica Turmeric is two capsules. These two capsules contain 600 mg of theracurmin (which is the enhanced bioavailability version of the turmeric rhizome complex). That ingredient is 30 percent curcuinoide, offering 180 mg of that substance. The package directions suggests that you take 2 capsules per day, but if you’re unsure, it’s always wise to speak to a doctor about the right dose for your specific needs and expectations.

The supplement is based on turmeric. This is a commonly used spice that finds its way into many foods in several parts of the world. It is bright yellowy orange and tastes somewhat like mustard. That said, it has also been used medicinally for hundreds of years. It is known to have anti-inflammatory properties, which helps to explain why it has been used for conditions such as joint pain and arthritis, stomach pain, heartburn, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, high cholesterol, headaches, colds, lung infections, irritable bowel syndrome, skin inflammation, fibromyalgia and many others that are related to swelling and pain. It is also believed that regular consumption of this ingredient may help to reduce the risk of some cancers.

For people who are exercising, this type of product may be helpful because of the anti-inflammatory properties, as well. It can help to overcome pain and discomforts after an intense workout, during the time that the muscles are recovering. That said, this is not meant to be used for the treatment of chronic pain or as a treatment for an actual injury unless directed to do so by a doctor.

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.

Mag 07 Oxygen Cleanse is a nonprescription weight loss pill manufactured by a company called Aerobic Life. At the time of the writing of this review, an official website for either that company or product could not be located. However, the supplement is sold at a number of different online retailer websites and the company does have a Facebook page. Therefore, the information for this review has been gleaned from those sources.

Mag 07 Oxygen Cleanse is sold in the form of capsules. As the product has been labeled as both vegan and vegetarian on vitaminshoppe.com’s listing, it would be assumed that those capsules do not contain any animal based products. The problem, however, is that the ingredients list gelatin among the inactive ingredients that make up the capsule and gelatin is an animal based substance. However, on Amazon.com, the ingredients say that the capsule is made from cellulose, which is indeed vegan friendly.

This conflicting information makes it difficult to know what to believe about the product. Without an official webpage on a manufacturer’s website, it makes it even more challenging for a consumer to trust the information available online for this product.

One serving of Mag 07 Oxygen Cleanse consists of 3 capsules according to the nutrition table printed on the product. It specifies that there are 60 servings per bottle as there are 180 capsules per bottle. At the same time, when turning the product label around, the directions for using this product state that the user should “take up to 5 capsules at bedtime” with a large glass of water “for 7-10 days or until desired cleanse has been attained”.

This provides two conflicting instructions directly on the product package. Again, without an official website to consult or customer service with whom to communicate, there isn’t any way for a dieter to receive clarification.

Before using a product like this one, it is a very good idea to consult with a doctor. For one thing, most doctors now agree that cleanses provide more stress to the body’s organs than benefit. For another, with such conflicting ingredients lists and usage instructions, even if this product does contain a proper formula, only a medical professional would have the knowledge to guide a user.

That said, it is unlikely that a doctor would recommend using this product when there has been inadequate attention to directions and formula ingredients information.

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.

Plexus BioCleanse is a nonprescription weight loss product. It was designed to help people who are battling with uncomfortable bloating as a result of a busy lifestyle that doesn’t include adequate fiber and exercise. The official description for this product specifically underscores the fact that it contains magnesium among its ingredients. This nutrient is known to be beneficial to the digestive system.

The official website for this product claims that it provides a long list of benefits. Among them are the cleansing of the gastro-intestinal tract, assisting in boosting physical energy levels, providing antioxidant support through added vitamin C, and offering relief for occasional constipation which is not in the form of chronic constipation. This product is both vegetarian-friendly and gluten free.

The formula is made of vitamin C, magnesium, sodium, a bioflavonoid complex (which contains orange peel, lemon peel and whole quince fruit. As a whole, this product essentially acts as a laxative and does not contain any ingredients that have been directly connected with actual fat loss on the body.

To use this product, the package directions recommend that users take two Plexus BioCleanse capsules along with 8 ounces of water. This should be done twice per day. The capsules should be taken between meals, not with them.

Despite the fact that this product is sold in the weight loss category, it is unlikely to cause anything but very temporary weight loss. This is because the weight that it helps to reduce is not in the form of body fat. Instead, it helps to relieve the added weight and size caused by bloating and constipation. Therefore, while fat is not being burned away, it does help to decrease the presence of gas, retained water and a buildup of waste in the digestive system.

This type of product should be used with great care. For one thing, laxatives may not be appropriate for people who suffer from chronic constipation – which the product does mention in its description. Therefore, it’s important to know the cause of your constipation before taking an over the counter product to correct it.

Moreover, using laxatives in this way can cause the body to reduce its ability to effectively produce bowel movements on its own. This can mean that a user may build an increasing need to rely on laxatives in order to avoid constipation.

It is highly recommended that a doctor be consulted before beginning the use of Plexus BioCleanse.

Holland & Barrett Lycopene reviewHolland & Barrett Lycopene is a nonprescription dietary supplement. It is the house-brand of the large Holland & Barrett retailer. Its only active ingredient is lycopene, a nutrient found naturally in certain fruits and vegetables. Some natural sources of lycopene include pink grapefruit, watermelon and processed tomato products such as tomato paste. In fact, it is the substance that gives many of those fruits their red or pink color.

In this particular supplement, there is 10 milligrams of lycopene. This supplement is listed under the Holland & Barrett weight management category of the website. That said, no direct claims about losing weight are made with regards to this product. In fact, the official description of this product does not suggest that it will lead to any specific benefits at all. Instead, despite being sold as a weight management product, it claims only to effectively supplement the lycopene nutrient.

In order to take this product properly, the official webpage for the product recommends that one be taken each day with a meal. No more than one tablet should be taken per day.

Aside from the lycopene within this product, the non-active ingredients include: Bulking Agents (Microcrystalline Cellulose, Dicalcium Phospate), Maltodextrin, Anti-Caking Agents (Stearic Acid, Magnesium Stearate). This product does not contain any added sugar or salt, it is also free of sweeteners, artificial colors, preservatives, flavors, wheat, gluton, soya, lactose, yeast, fish and porcine ingredients.

Many people have been choosing lycopene supplements such as this to complement an eating and exercising strategy for weight loss. Anecdotal evidence suggests that this nutrient can help to promote better weight management while also being very good for overall health. There is also some evidence that this substance can help to prevent certain types of cancer.

At this dose it is quite unlikely that the majority of people would experience any side effects. This is a positive note as many diet pills are associated with unwanted side effects that can make it challenging to be able to take advantage of their benefits.

This pill should not be taken with the expectation that it will simply cause excess fat to be lost without taking part in any other dieting efforts. It is important to practice proper eating and fitness appropriate activity levels in order to be able to achieve healthful weight management. This pill should be seen as a nutrition tool and not a magic solution to weight loss needs.
