BeLive Fusion Burn ReviewBeLive Fusion Burn is a fat burner weight loss pill that claims to work with thermogenesis and provides an “all-in-one” product that dieters can rely on to help lose the pounds. It claims directly that its blend of ingredients is among the best natural fat burning substances for energy boosting, raising fat burning and improving focus.

Clearly, it’s up to the dieter to dig a little deeper as the official website for this product does not support any of its claims with reputable large studies published in industry journals. Without that type of evidence, the manufacturer is assuming that dieters will simply believe the claims it makes. This is a common tactic among manufacturers, making it difficult for dieters to be able to tell whether or not the claims are legitimate.

Therefore, it’s a good idea for anyone considering the use of BeLive Fusion Burn to start with a trip to the doctor’s office. Bring a list of the ingredients in the product and any claims made in order to discuss it with your doctor. That way, you can find out not only if the product is likely to work for you in the way you’re hoping, but you can also discover whether or not it is likely to be safe for you when taking into consideration any medical conditions you may have, or any medications or supplements you are taking or plan to take at the same time as this weight loss pill.

Next take a closer look at the ingredients in the product. At the time this BeLive Fusion Burn review was written, the official product package included the following on its ingredients list: chromium, black pepper fruit extract, caffeine, apple cider vinegar powder, garcinia cambogia.

This is an interesting list of ingredients as it doesn’t contain anything that isn’t quite commonplace in the over the counter diet supplement industry. Chromium is the top ingredient, but it’s good to know that it is considered to be unproven, at best, as a weight loss ingredient. The Mayo Clinic states that far more research is required before it could be considered helpful in helping to reduce body fat. Moreover, it is not believed to function as a fat burner. Instead, it is used in other products to regulate blood sugar levels in the hopes of helping to avoid food cravings. This is not listed among the claims of this product.

Next, the black pepper fruit extract is typically used not to help burn more fat, but instead to aid in the absorption of other ingredients. This could help to make sure you’re getting the most out of the other substances in the formula.

Caffeine is a stimulant which will help to boost energy levels and alertness. This can make it easier to exercise more regularly and remain alert to focus on a dieting strategy. Apple cider vinegar may help to improve digestion and it could even boost fat burning but studies have yet to show that this occurs to such a degree that it would lead to measurable fat loss on a scale. Garcinia cambogia may help to suppress the appetite, but studies remain preliminary and this ingredient is not yet considered to be a proven fat reducing substance.

Phenastin ReviewPhenastin is an over the counter weight management product that is often found on sites selling products they claim to be Phentermine alternatives. That said, while the marketing for these pills never directly claims that it is simply a non-prescription version of the obesity drug, it does promise to provide a “pharmaceutical grade weight loss stimulant.”

Upon seeing that promise, it is very important for all dieters to be wary of what Phenastin will actually provide. Therefore, if you are considering the use of this product, take the precaution to speak with your doctor or another licensed health care professional. That way, you will be able to know for certain what type of results – if any – you can expect from using this product and whether or not it is safe for you when taking into account any medical conditions you may have.

These diet pills are made by Phenastin Clinical Weight Loss Solutions. The benefits described in the product description on the brand’s official website include reduced appetite, decreased food cravings, raised thermogenesis, increased energy levels, and enhanced mood. The pills are a form of rapid acting, rapid release caplet.

At the time of the writing of this review, a bottle of Phenastin was sold on Amazon for $36.99. The caplets were white with blue – somewhat similar to Phentermine in a none-too-subtle nod to that drug – and contained a proprietary blend of the following ingredients: Caffeine Anhydrous, Theobromine Anhydrous, Phenehtylamine Hcl, 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), Mentha Piperita, Alpha Yohimbine.

Those ingredients are quite commonplace in the non-prescription diet pill market. They clearly lean toward stimulants, as is made clear by the official description of the product. That said, it is important to note that while these ingredients can be helpful in supporting dieters who are following a reduced calorie diet and are boosting their active lifestyles, the is no conclusive research directly linking this combination of substances to fat loss.

At best, reliable research about this product’s ingredients does show that the stimulants can raise energy levels. This can also boost alertness which may make it easier to keep up with an active lifestyle or pay attention to the rules of a complex diet program. Energy can also help to make it easier to reach top workout performances when exercising for weight loss.

At the same time, it’s important for dieters to be aware that taking supplements containing powerful or multiple stimulants can lead to certain unwanted side effects such as jitters, restlessness, sleep struggles, headache, anxiety, constipation and others.

SCULPT Fat Burner ReviewSCULPT fat burner is a maximum energy thermogenic catalyst that promises benefits, such as increased thermogenesis, boosted energy and focus, support for appetite control and the promotion of healthy weight loss. It is a dietary supplement produced by Cutler Nutrition.

According to Cutler Nutrition, what really sets SCULPT apart from other diet pills like it “is the innovative blend of natural herbal thermogenic ingredients that have been scientifically validated to help increase metabolic rate and reduce appetite.”

The manufacturer claims that the formula’s natural ingredients are what transforms the body into a fat burning machine. This, in turn, helps the user to sculpt their physique to reveal months of building muscle mass from intense training. With a statement such as this, it should be noted that SCULPT Fat Burner has been developed not only to burn fat and shed weight, but also as a body building supplement.

When this SCULPT Fat Burner review was created, the formula was made up of the following ingredients: Acetyl L-Carnitine, Caffeine Anhydrous, Neurofactor (Whole Coffee Fruit Extract), Banaba Leaf Extract, Grains of Paradise Extract, L-Theanine, Cayenne Pepper Fruit Extract 4:1, Theobromine.

The recommended use is to first assess your tolerance by taking only 1 capsule, twice daily with 8 ounces of water. After tolerance has been assessed, you can take 2 capsules, twice daily. Regardless of whether you take 1 or 2 capsules doses, you should take the pill(s) in the morning when you wake up, with 8 ounces of water and then have the second dose 6-8 hours later in the late afternoon with 8 ounces of water. You should not take more than 4 capsules within a 24 hour period.

SCULPT Fat Burner does contain multiple ingredients that some research suggests may encourage thermogenesis (a process that results in the body burning calories and/or fat for energy to heat up the body). Among these ingredients include caffeine and cayenne pepper.

Speaking of caffeine, this diet pill contains 250 mg of caffeine per 2 capsule serving. This is about equal to two and a half cups of coffee. Considering the maximum dose would be 500 mg of caffeine daily, needless to say, this is a lot of caffeine. As such, there is a greater risk that you may experience unwanted stimulant-related side effects if you take SCULPT, such as insomnia, jitters, anxiety, heart palpitations, rapid heartbeat, high blood pressure, etc.

It would be in your best interest to consult with your healthcare provider before taking SCUPLT Fat Burner.

Rethink Nutrition Burner+ ReviewRethink Nutrition Burner+ is a dietary supplement for weight loss created by Rethink Nutrition. It is formulated for both men and women and features a fat loss, energy and focus blend, synergistic formula, and promises no crash.

According to the manufacturer, it was specifically designed so that its ingredients “work synergistically to achieve the ideal balance between energy and cognitive performance.” By providing these benefits, the idea is that you can achieve increased fat burning and energy to assist you in reaching your desired potential, while also maintaining the calm and clear mind you need to focus and blast through any task you want to complete.

When this Rethink Nutrition Burner+ review was written, the formula was composed of Green Tea Leaf Extract, Alpha GPC 50%, Caffeine Anhydrous, Black Pepper Fruit Extract, Huperzia Serrata Extract.

The recommended usage instructions are to take 1-2 capsules on either an empty stomach or with food. For optimal results it is suggested that you consume twice daily. The manufacturer does state that Rethink Nutrition Burner+ is not a magic supplement. It is meant to be paired with a healthy diet and exercise. When it is, the claim is that this diet pill functions as a preworkout, nootropic, fat burner or weight loss aid.

The ingredients in this dietary supplement are commonly found in many over-the-counter (OTC) weight loss diet pills, particularly in the case of caffeine, green tea and black pepper. Caffeine is a stimulant that can boost mental alertness and energy, while green tea is thought to be a fat burner, and black pepper helps the body to better absorb the product’s ingredients. Both Alpha-GPC and Huperzine-A (Huperzia) are believed to be nootropics that are thought to help with memory function.

Although there is not guarantee that Rethink Nutrition Burner+ will aid in measurable fat loss, due to the caffeine content in this product, it is likely to increase mental alertness. That being said, if you are sensitive to caffeine or you consume other caffeinated or stimulant-containing foods or beverages while taking this diet pill, you may increase your chances of certain unwanted side effects, such as jitters, insomnia, restlessness, anxiety, upset stomach, rapid heartbeat, etc.

Moreover, to reduce the risk of sleep disturbances or sleeplessness, avoid taking this product late in the afternoon or before bed.

Prior to taking Rethink Nutrition Burner+ – as is the case with all dietary supplements – you should first consult with your healthcare provider before adding this product to your daily diet.

Re-Body Meratrim ReviewRe-Body Meratrim comes from Re-Body and is a marketed as a fruit and flower slimming formula. It promises to help you lose weight starting in 2 weeks and reduce weight and hip size. The product is stimulant free and the manufacturer also claims that is has been clinically studied.

Each capsule of Re-Body Meratrim is composed of a Meratrim Proprietary Blend: Sphaeranthus indicus extract (flower heads), Garcinia mangostana extract (fruit rind). One capsule equals a single serving size and contains 400 mg of the proprietary blend.

The suggested use is to take 1 capsule twice daily (morning and evening) 30 minutes prior to bedtime.

Meratrim is a combination of two plant extracts: Sphaeranthus indicus extract and Garcinia mangostana extract. These plant extracts may change the metabolism of fat cells. It is believed that Meratrim works by making it harder for fat cells to multiply, reducing the amount of fat that they pick up from the bloodstream as well as helping the body to burn stored fat.

Meratrim has been clinically researched. According to the double blind, placebo controlled studies, the participants who took Meratrim lost an additional 8 pounds at the end of the 16-week study period compared to those who took placebos. Those who took Meratrim and lost weight also lost 2.46 inches from their waist and 2.07 inches from their hips.

This research suggests that by taking Meratrim as directed, it may help to assist in fat loss compared to partaking in only conventional weight loss methods, such as diet and regular exercise.

However, in spite of promising research, a few studies is not enough to prove the safety or efficacy of this ingredient or the Re-Body Meratrim product. More scientific study needs to be conducted to determine Meratrim’s effect on the body and just how beneficial it is for weight loss. Moreover, it should be noted that the studies conducted on Meratrim were paid for by the manufacturers who produce and sell this product. This matters because it could mean that the results are bias.

On the plus side, Re-Body Meratrim is stimulant-free so there should be no risk of adverse effects that result from stimulant-related ingredients like Caffeine, such as jitters, anxiety, insomnia, etc. That being said, this does not mean that Meratrim is without side effects.

The bottom line is that more research needs to be conducted on Meratrim to substantiate or disprove the claims that have been made about it.

Be sure to consult with your doctor before taking Re-Body Meratrim

Thermo Rip Fat Burner ReviewThermo Rip Fat Burner is a dietary fat burning supplement designed to help enhance metabolism, reduce body fat, and increase energy. It is a diet pill from Fitness Labs that has been specifically formulated for those who exercise.

The official product page for Thermo Rip Fat Burner claims that this dietary supplement is “made with 5 top diet ingredients to help enhance metabolism, reduce body fat and increase energy”.

When this Thermo Rip Fat Burner review was written, the formula was composed of a Thermo Rip Complex: Sinetrol Xpur Fruit Extracts (grapefruit extract, sweet orange extract, guarana extract, blood orange extract), Green Tea Leaf Extract, Caffeine Anhydrous, L-Tyrosine, Cayenne Pepper.

According to Fitness Labs, Sinetrol Xpur’s fruit extracts contain specific bioactive flavonoids that have been shown to boost the breakdown of fat (lipolysis). Green tea provides a high level of EGCG, a fat-fighting compound that research suggests can enhance the effects of the body’s own fat burning substances and improve exercise performance. Combined with caffeine, green tea is thought to have an even stronger effect on producing fat burning results. L-tyrosine is also believed to function like a natural fat burner, while cayenne pepper is thought to increase calorie burning, fat burning and reduce appetite.

Although Fitness Labs has referred to studies to back up the claims it has made about the ingredients within its formula, this doesn’t actually mean that these ingredients or the Thermo Rip Fat Burner formula is effective at aiding in weight loss or producing measurable long-term weight loss results.

A few positive scientific studies is not enough to demonstrate that these ingredients are proven for weight loss. On the contrary, more research needs to be conducted on each of these ingredients to determine their effects on treating overweight and obese individuals in regard to fat reduction.

Also, keep in mind that this diet pill contains multiple stimulants as it has both caffeine and guarana. Moreover, the manufacturer does not reveal how much of each of these substances has been included within its formula so there is no way of knowing how much caffeine you are receiving per serving.

The directions are to take 2 capsules, twice per day. Two capsules are equivalent to one serving size, which contains 1,075 mg of the Thermo Rip Complex. Although the manufacturer has not provided any additional dosage instructions, it would be a good idea to avoid taking this diet pill too late in the day to reduce the risk of sleep disturbances, which may result from taking caffeine too close to bedtime.

Consult with your healthcare provider before taking Thermo Rip Fat Burner to make sure it is a safe choice for you.

Unaltered Fat Burner ReviewUnaltered Fat Burner is a dietary supplement developed for serious athletes and those who would like to lose weight. It comes from manufacturer UNALTERED and has been formulated to offer a variety of benefits, such as increased metabolic rate, fat incineration, appetite suppression, and energy boosting.

The manufacturer claims on its official webpage that it’s 100% Unaltered Fat Burner is free of banned substances, is third party tested and is manufactured in a cGMP Facility. This implies that care went into creating this diet pill. That being said, to gain a better idea of just how beneficial it can be to your weight loss efforts, it’s important to take a look at the ingredients.

When this Unaltered Fat Burner review was written, its formula was composed of: N-Acetyl L-Carnitine, Coleus Forskohlii Powder, Quercitin, Green Tea Extract, Caffeine Anhydrous, Cayenne Pepper Powder, Synephrine HCl, Yohimbe Powder.

The manufacturer is correct in that its formula does not contain any banned substances. That being said, there are two important things that should be pointed out about the above ingredients. Firstly, there is no scientific proof that any of these ingredients effectively burn fat or decrease appetite in any way that leads to measurable fat loss. That said, research has found that caffeine can improve mental focus and energy, two benefits that could help support dieting and exercising.

Secondly, Unaltered Fat Burner contains syneprhine. This is a naturally occurring stimulant in bitter orange and is known to enhance the effects of caffeine. While not a banned substance, when combined with caffeine, synephrine can be dangerous. The FDA has warned that the combination of these two stimulants can increase the risk of serous cardiovascular side effects, even in healthy individuals. These risks include fainting, high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke.

Overall, Unaltered Fat Burner is more of a stimulant pill than it is anything else. While you are likely to feel a boost in mental alertness and even energy while taking this diet pill, there is a chance that these benefits may come with unpleasant side effects, such as jitters, anxiety, headache, restlessness, upset stomach, insomnia, etc.

Due to the fact that Unaltered Fat Burner combines both caffeine and synephrine it may be in your best interest to consider another non-prescription diet pill to use as part of your weight management efforts. That said, be sure to speak to your healthcare provider prior to taking this product if you should decide you would like to try it.

XyLEAN ReviewXyLEAN, from Lexona Labs, is a dietary supplement marketed for weight loss. This non-prescription diet pill has been designed to support appetite suppression, energy and focus. Each of these benefits can be highly beneficial to your dieting and exercising efforts as you work toward shedding excess pounds.

For instance, appetite suppression can help you stick to your efforts to maintain a healthful diet that is reduced in calories. Energy can help you carry on with your busy day and help you not skip out on workouts. Meanwhile, having focus can benefit both your dieting and exercising goals. When you have a clear head it is easier to stick to your objectives.

That being said, while these are all notable benefits, this doesn’t mean that XyLEAN will necessarily deliver them. Its efficacy is fully dependent on the ingredients within its formula.

When this XyLEAN review was written, the formula was composed of a XyLEAN Blend of which there was 725 mg per 1 table serving. The XyLEAN Blend contained the following ingredients: Caffeine Anhydrous, Beta-Phenylethylamine HCl, Phase-2 Carb Controller, White Kidney Bean Extract, Octopamine HCl, Theobromine, L-Theanine, Hordenine HCl, Synephrine HCl.

Based on the above ingredients, XyLEAN is likely to provide increased focus and energy. The main reason is due to the fact that it contains almost all stimulant ingredients. That being said, the fact that it contains so many stimulants is also a downside. The reason is that this significantly increases the risk of adverse effects, such as insomnia, anxiety, jitters, restlessness, heart palpitations, rapid heartbeat, high blood pressure, etc.

To put this into greater perspective, the following are all the stimulant ingredients this product contains: caffeine, phenylelthylamine, octopamine, syneprhine and hordenine.

To make matters worse, this product combines caffeine with two naturally occurring stimulants in the herb bitter orange: syneprhine and octopamine. Synephrine, specifically, acts as a catalyst to caffeine. In addition to boosting its good side effects, it also significantly increases its bad side effects. As a result, this can increase the risk of dangerous cardiovascular events such as high blood pressure, fainting, heart attack and stroke.

Unfortunately, due to the number of stimulants in XyLEAN, it would be in your best interest to avoid this product. There are much safer non-prescription diet pills that can help support your weight management program. Still, if you feel that this product is worth a try, it is prudent that you first speak with your healthcare professional to make sure it is safe for you to take.

Acai Quick Burn reviewAcai quick burn is a dietary supplement that has been formulated as a fat burner. In fact, it is referred to as a “high performance natural thermogenic fat burner.” In addition to fat burning, it has also been designed to promote energy boosting and appetite suppression.

When this Acai Quick Burn review was created, each serving (2 capsules), was composed of the following: Chromium Picolinate (200 mcg) and the Maximum Strength Acai Fat Burning Complex (1.3 g): Acai Berry Extract, Green Tea Extract, Garcinia Cambogia Extract, L-Tyrosine, L-Carnitine HCI, Licorice Root, Rhodiola Rosea Root Powder, Organic Kelp Powder, Cha de Bugre Powder.

The suggested use is to take 2 capsules, twice per day, with a full glass of water. No more than a maximum of 4 capsules should be exceeded within a 24 hour period. It is recommended for users to take the first dose immediately upon waking up. They should then wait 20 minutes prior to eating anything. The second dose is best taken mid-afternoon and users should once again wait a minimum of 20 minutes after taking the pills to eat a meal. Acai Quick Burn should not be taken within 4 hours of bedtime.

The reason users are cautioned to avoid taking this product 4 hours before bed is it contains stimulants, which can increase the risk of side effects such as restlessness, sleep disturbances and insomnia.

In regard to its efficacy, Acai Quick Burn’s three key ingredients are Acai Berry, Green Tea and Garcinia Cambogia. Each one of these ingredients can be commonly found in many over-the-counter diet products. They are believed to offer weight loss seekers a variety of benefits.

For instance, Acai berry is considered to be high in anti-oxidants and might help the body burn more fat with greater efficiency, as well as boost metabolism, lower cravings and process food at a faster rate. Green tea is believed to be a powerful metabolism enhancer and fat burner. Meanwhile, garcinia cambogia is believed to have hunger suppressing effects, as well as may help to block the digestion of fat and aid in fat burning.

That being said, there is a big difference between believing that an ingredient works and it actually being proven to work. Unfortunately, none of these ingredients have ever been scientifically proven to work for weight loss. Moreover, they’ve never been scientifically proven safe either. As such, there’s no proof that taking Acai Quick Burn will offer you any real benefits in regard to helping you achieve your fat loss goals.

Be that as it may, if you are still keen to try it, keep in mind that as is the case with any dietary supplement, you should consult with your healthcare provider before making it a regular part of your lifestyle.

No-Stim ReviewNo-Stim is marketed as a caffeine-free weight loss supplement from Addrena LLC. Designed for both men and women, it is non-stimulant fat burner meant to function as both a thermogenic and appetite suppressant to help with weight management. According to its Amazon sales page, it promises “slow, steady weight loss results over time in a safe way without stimulants.”

Taking dietary supplements that can help curb hunger can make it easier to stick to a calorie-controlled diet. As for one that encourages thermogenesis, this can be beneficial when combined with exercise to maximize fat burning potential.

That being said, the only way to really know if No-Stim can live up to claims is to take a look at the ingredients in this non-prescription weight loss formula.

When this No-Stim review was written, the ingredients included the following: Potassium Iodide, Hoodia Gordonii Stem Extract, Guggel-Oleo-Gum-Resin Extract, Saffron Bulb Extract, N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine, Selenium.

Unfortunately, none of these ingredients have ever been clinically proven effective for weight loss. In spite of this, there are still claims that have been made about each of them, and this may be why some of these ingredients may sound familiar to you.

For instance, hoodia gordonii is believed to help suppress appetite and the common story is that it has been used by South African tribesmen for centuries during long hunting trips to help stave off hunger.

Potassium iodide, on the other hand, is needed by the body to maintain proper thyroid function. Insufficient amounts of this mineral can lower metabolism, which may contribute to weight gain.

Selenium and guggulsterone are both believed to help support metabolism, saffron is believed to decrease appetite, lower cravings and give the mood a boost, while N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine may help thyroid function.

Although these do sound like wonderful benefits, without solid clinical evidence to prove that they can indeed be advantageous for weight management, there is no guarantee that they will be of any real assistance to those who take them.

On the plus side, No-Stim is true to one of its claims. It is a non-caffeine and stimulant-free dietary supplement. This may make it an ideal choice for anyone who is highly sensitive to stimulants or who simply wants to avoid them, and is interested in trying an over-the-counter (OTC) weight management product.

That being said, keep in mind that even though No-Stim is available without prescription and is stimulant-free, it’s still wise to speak with your healthcare provider before taking this supplement for weight loss or any other health reason, to make sure it is the right choice for you.

The recommended dosage is to take 1 tablet before meals, two times per days (a maximum of 2 tablets in 24 hours).
