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).

Daily Fit ReviewDaily Fit claims to be a stimulant-free fat burner that has been formulated to help you burn calories. It offers thermogenic fat burning support to help you stay lean and fit. It is manufactured by Optimum Nutrition and its primary active ingredients are L-Carnitine and Green Tea. Both of these ingredients are thought to help support metabolism and help you get the most out of your fat burning when combined with exercise.

More specifically, when this Daily Fit review was written, the formula contained the following ingredients per 2 capsule serving: Thiamin (3 mg), Riboflavin (3.4 mg), Niacin (12 mg), Vitamin B6 (4 mg), Folic Acid (200 mcg), Vitamin B12 (12 mcg), Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl (500 mg), Green Tea Extract (200 mg), Red Pepper Extract (65 mg), Black Pepper Extract (10 mg).

The suggested use is to take Daily Fit in the morning after meals. Other than this instruction on the official product page, no other directions, such as how many pills to take per day, etc.) are provided.

None of the above ingredients have ever been clinically proven effective or safe for weight loss or treating obesity. What’s more, Daily Fit is not stimulant-free as the manufacturer claims. It may be considered “non-stimulant” due to the low levels of caffeine in green tea but it is certainly not free of caffeine, which is a stimulant.

Although green tea certainly does not contain as much caffeine as coffee nor is the caffeine content of green tea extract as potent as caffeine anhydrous, caffeine still exists within it. For a company to claim that their product is “simulant-free” or to give the impression that it does not contain caffeine is simply untrue and irresponsible. It suggests that either the company is lying or that it does not know the difference between a product that contains caffeine and one that doesn’t.

Either way, this is a red flag for Daily Fit and the company behind it, Optimum Nutrition. If you are interested in taking a fat burning dietary supplement, there are better products available from far more reputable companies.

That being said, no matter what dietary supplement you might consider as part of your weight management regimen, always remember that it’s a good idea to discuss your plans with your healthcare provider. A professional medical opinion can be very useful in helping you find a product that is safe and provides you with the best weight loss support.

INVIGOR8 Fat Burner

INVIGOR8 Fat Burner ReviewINVIGOR8 Fat Burner is an over the counter weight loss product designed to make it easier for dieters to be able to lose weight. The official INVIGOR8 website claims this fat burning supplement will reduce cravings between meals while its thermogenic ingredients “melt away fat” all throughout a user’s busy day.

From that very language, people experienced in the weight loss industry know to be skeptical of the product as no supplement – even those with the best clinical trials and consumer feedback – can work by melting away fat. That is a very common claim among products that are trying to make sales and aren’t necessarily formulated to provide actual results.

That said, just because it has sketchy language on its official website, it doesn’t automatically mean that INVIGOR8 Fat Burner won’t work. Therefore, the next step for a dieter is to have a look at the ingredients that make up this formula. Fortunately, the official website does provide a clear list of all the active ingredients contained within its capsules. Even better, it also provides the specific amount in which each ingredient has been used for every 2 capsules – which is the equivalent to one serving when taking according to the package directions.

At the time this review was written, the INVIGOR8 Fat Burner ingredients were: green tea leaf extract, green coffee bean extract, raspberry ketones, olive leaf extract, bacopa leaf extract, garcinia fruit extract, chrysin and forskohlli root extract. Interestingly, despite the dubious claims made about this product, there is some preliminary research supporting the use of some of its ingredients. While it is clear that some of the ingredients – such as raspberry ketones – were selected because they have received a great deal of media hype and haven’t necessarily been proven to work in medical studies, others are better supported.

For example, green tea leaf extract has been widely researched and a growing body of evidence is building to support its use to help promote fat burning while reducing the accumulation of body fat.

To use INVIGOR8 Fat Burner according to the package directions, dieters should begin by taking one capsule twice per day. The pills should be taken 30 to 45 minutes ahead of a meal. This should be continued for a period of 3 days to determine the user’s tolerance level to the ingredients. It is not made clear what exactly a dieter should be watching for during that time. That said, after three days, the dieter is supposed to take 2 capsules, twice per day ahead of meals, for a total of 4 pills per day. Accustomed users are supposed to take 2 capsules, three times per day before a meal for maximum results, for a total of six pills per day.

As each bottle contains 60 pills, each bottle will last only 10 days for accustomed users. This means that they will need to use three bottles per month. At the moment, the website offers three bottles for $112.39. Since most dieters will need to lose weight for longer than a month, this product would prove to be cost prohibitive even if it did work, particularly when considering its claims are dubious. It is also not clear what sort of diet and exercise program should be followed while taking INVIGOR8 Fat Burner.

Fentalena ReviewFentalena is an over the counter weight loss supplement that markets itself exclusively to women. It targets women who not only want to lose weight, but who have struggled to do so in the past and feel as though they are the only ones who can’t seem to make their diets work. It quite specifically speaks to women who are frustrated and feel as though they’ve run out of options that can work for them.

This product claims to be an appetite suppressant as well as a fat burner through thermogenesis and an energy booster. These are very common claims and they are typically found together in products that contain stimulants. The reason is that many stimulants can produce all three of these effects in the body. Still, the idea is to know whether or not this product has the right types of ingredients and the right quantity of stimulants to make sure that there is a chance it can help produce fat loss without leading to severe unpleasant side effects.

The ingredients in the Fentalena formula make up the Fentalena Proprietary Blend. Its ingredients include: Garcinia Cambogia Extract, Green Coffee Bean Extract, Raspberry Ketones, Green Tea Leaf, Yohimbe Bark Extract, Acai Fruit Extract, Goji Fruit Extract, Pomegranate Fruit Extract, Noni Fruit Extract, Cinnamon Twig, Galangal Rhizome, Glucuronloactone, Naringin, Hoodia godonii extract, Guggulsterones E & Z. The pill also contains Thiamne, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Vitamin B12, and Pantothenic Acid.

When compared to the ingredients lists on many high quality product, this one easily contains three to four times the number of substances. Though it’s hardly a record breaker, it contains a striking number of ingredients, which should cause many dieters to wonder if there is enough of each substance to actually produce a desired effect.

Also noticeable is that while many of these ingredients are quite popular in over the counter weight loss substances, very few of them have a substantial body of medical research to support their use and none of them would be considered as proven by the medical community.

While this doesn’t mean that the ingredients are necessarily ineffective, it does suggest that the manufacturer does not have the information necessary to chose the perfect amount of an ingredient to ensure maximum benefit with the lowest risk of side effects. The reason it hasn’t been able to do this is that the evidence has not yet been provided through scientific study and therefore that amount simply isn’t known. Moreover, without being proven through medical research, it’s also impossible to know if it causes negative effects if used over the longer term, if it conflicts with other supplements, drugs or medical conditions, or if it really does produce the promised benefits.

APEX-TX5 ReviewAPEX –TX5 is a nonprescription diet pill that was formulated in order to provide people following a healthy weight loss strategy with additional support. It is marketed primarily as a metabolic support formula, which means that it contains metabolism enhancers to ensure the body is receiving more than it would naturally for encouraging the metabolic rate.

That said, while the primary focus of APEX-TX5 may be on its metabolic support, it actually contains a range of different types of ingredients within its proprietary formula, which are meant to provide a more complete experience for dieters.

This product was designed and is made by a company called Intechra Health Inc. That company makes all its products in the United States in an FDA cGMP facility. This means that APEX-TX5 is American made and is produced in a facility that meets or exceeds the GMP standards laid out by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Each of the ingredients that comprise the proprietary formula for this supplement has been clinically tested. This helps to make sure that every one of them has been more thoroughly understood and that Intechra Health can be confident of the quality of its product.

Aside from metabolism enhancers, the ingredients in this formulation also include fat loss catalysts, thermogenic intensifiers, energy boosters and appetite suppressants. These can all be helpful for dieters who are adhering to the type of weight loss strategy most frequently recommended by doctors.

The metabolism enhancers, as well as the fat loss catalysts and thermogenic intensifiers are all meant to provide support to dieters who are also including regular fitness appropriate exercise in their efforts. They make sure that every time someone using the product completes a workout – particularly in the case of cardio workouts – he or she will burn as many calories as is possible.

The energy boosters can also be beneficial during workouts as they provide the added endurance and drive a user needs to perform at their very best. This helps to make sure that every workout will provide the highest possible results.

The appetite suppressants, on the other hand, are meant to help to ensure that a dieter will be able to improve their level of control. In that way, he or she will be able to overcome food cravings in order to make more appropriate food choices and resist overeating. This can be very handy for people who are prone to consume too many calories.

At the time of the writing of this review, the APEX-TX5 ingredients were: Acetyl-L-Carnitine, Caffeine Anhydrous, (as 1,3,7 Trimethylxanthine), Beta-Phenylethylamine HCl, L-Tyrosine and Theobromine.

FENFAST 375 Review

FENFAST 375 is an over the counter diet pill that has been receiving a large amount of attention from both dieters and the media over the last few years. While it experienced quite a sudden rise to popularity following its initial launch, the number of users has only continued to steadily grow since that time, according to the number of positive reviews it appears to be receiving in the various marketplaces where it is sold – including its own official website, Amazon.com and others.

This product is made and manufactured for a company called Intechra Health Inc. That business is located in the United States and all its products are made in the U.S.A. Its manufacturing facility is FDA cGMP, which means that it conforms with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s good manufacturing practice standards. This knowledge can help consumers to know that FENFAST 375 is subject to only the highest standards in the way it is made.

Beyond its manufacture, the ingredients are also carefully purity tested and they have all been clinically tested. It was the outcomes of that scientific research that allowed the team at Intechra Health to select and balance the substances comprising the proprietary formula. The pill itself is a tablet that is all white with blue specks.

At the time of the writing of this review, the ingredients found within the formula included: Beta Phenylethylamine HCl, Caffeine (Caffeine Anhydrous at 1, 3, 7 Trimethylxanthine), Hordenine HCl, L-Theanine.

Those substances are known as appetite suppressants, fat burners as well as energy boosters. Those three effects provide well rounded support for dieters who are following healthy natural weight loss strategies involving nutritious reduced calorie dieting as well as regular fitness appropriate amounts of exercise.

Taking FENFAST 375 is relatively straightforward. The tablets are meant to be swallowed whole with 8 ounces of water. Two tablets are taken with the water about a half hour before each meal, for a total of up to six pills per day. That said, as this product contains a stimulant, it’s important not to take it within 5 hours of going to bed at night. Leaving enough time for the pill to wear off before bedtime will allow the energy boosters to subside so they won’t disrupt sleep, says the package directions.

FENFAST 375 is considered appropriate for healthy adult dieters. That said, it is always recommended that anyone speak with their physician before taking any diet pill. This product is not meant for women who are pregnant, breastfeeding or think they will become pregnant during the time they intend to use these pills.

Dynamic Body Shaper Diet & Energy Review

Dynamic Body Shaper Diet & Energy is an over the counter diet pill that is one of several different products in that category made by Weider. Weider is a somewhat large supplement company that also makes products for several other health and wellness purposes. It focuses mainly on weight loss, pre-workouts, bodybuilding, weight gain, creatine supplements and stacks.

The official website for Weider has a complete webpage dedicated exclusively to Dynamic Body Shaper Diet & Energy. It provides some limited information to be helpful to dieters, as well as a partial list of all the ingredients that comprise the formula. This information can be very helpful to dieters who are trying to learn more about the product and who want to make sure it will be safe for them to use. This information can also be brought to the dieter’s doctor in order to be able to check into its appropriateness. It is a shame that it is not provided in any useful way on this particular site.

Interestingly, one of the first things said about this product on the website is that it does not contain any ephedrine. It is unclear as to why this was pointed out, unless there was, perhaps, a previous version of the product that once contained it back when the ingredient used to be legal. However, it does not specify, so it is impossible to know.

What this product does contain is not listed on the site. At the time this review was written, the only one of the Dynamic Body Shaper Diet & Energy ingredients listed on the official website was chromium picolinate. The product package also identifies green tea as an ingredient, though that is not mentioned on the website.

Chromium picolinate is sadly lacking in scientific support to indicate that it can be used for weight loss purposes. Well reputed websites such as the Mayo Clinic states that more research is needed to better understand chromium before it can be considered to be proven for use for dieters.

There is some research to support the use of green tea to improve weight loss results. However, without knowing how much green tea is included in this formula, it’s impossible to know if enough was used to mirror the results of the research.

A warning is posted on the website for residents of California in order to comply with Proposition 65. It says that this product contains chemicals that are known by the state to cause reproductive harm such as birth defects. That said, it did not identify the ingredient that was the culprit behind that warning.

Green Coffee Plus Review
Green Coffee Plus is one of dozens upon dozens of diet pills based on this very popular ingredient which gained the majority of its attention when it was mentioned on an episode of the Dr. Oz daytime talk show program. Unfortunately, the statements made about this ingredient were not only unproven at the time, but they have been disproven since its airing.

Dr. Oz faced a federal Senate committee as a result of having made this and several other similar claims about unproven ingredients. This hasn’t stopped the ingredient from being highly popular as is reflected in the existence of products such as Green Coffee Plus.

That said, it’s important to note that just because the research isn’t there to prove that Green Coffee Plus can work, it doesn’t mean that it won’t. However, without the research into the ingredients and this specific formula combination, it’s not possible for a dieter to know whether or not the ideal quantities are being used, what benefits could be expected, what interactions could occur with other ingredients, medications or medical conditions, or how much is too much and causes the product to become toxic.

The official website for Green Coffee Plus claims that there will be a number of benefits to dieters using this product. For one thing, they claim that there aren’t any fat cells that can “resist” green coffee bean, the main ingredient in this formula. It also states it will help a dieter to lose up to 16 pounds per month, to repair the metabolism, to regulate blood pressure and to improve skin condition.

These are not only unproven claims but they are also quite difficult to believe considering their broad spectrum and their very nature.

While no research was cited in the description of this product on the official website, many of the claims made about it reflect the results of a moderate sized study that was in fact conducted. However, as positive as the results of that study appeared to be, they have been determined to be unusable because the methods used by the researchers turned out to be tainted.

As a result, it’s very difficult to believe the claims made about this product as they appear to lean on research with unusable results. The information they appear to rely on is not considered to be trustworthy by the medical community. It is highly recommended that a doctor be consulted before using this product.
