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.

TRIMTHIN X700 ReviewTRIMTHIN X700 is a weight management capsule designed to help people to be able to achieve their goals more effectively by overcoming the barriers in their way. The key to the success of this product is in its proprietary formula which is based entirely on pharmacological grade clinically researched ingredients.

The manufacturer of this product, an American company called Intechra Health Inc, has an official website. On that site, there is a sizeable section dedicated to TRIMTHIN X700, one of it’s most effective products for energy. It describes the product, how it should be taken, how it works and what ingredients are included in the formula. The ingredients are all described in detail including descriptions of research with cited sources linked to the peer reviewed industry journals in which the studies were published.

These ingredients are composed of energy boosters, fat blockers, fat burners and appetite suppressants. These create a solid tool kit for dieters to use along with their healthy, nutritious eating plan that is properly calorie restricted, and a regular exercise regimen suited to their fitness level.

The reason is that each of the types of ingredients in this formula help users to overcome different types of obstacles to their weight loss strategies. For instance, fat burners help to accelerate the calorie burn overall but particularly during and following a cardio workout. Fat blockers help to improve a dieter’s efforts to eat right because it reduces the absorption of dietary fats from the foods they eat. Appetite suppression reduces or even eliminates food cravings. This makes it far easier to stick to a calorie restricted diet because a dieter can make better food and portion size choices.

The ingredients are combined into a proprietary formula called the TRIMTHIN X700 COMPLEX. It includes: Dimethylaminoethanol Bitartrate, Green Tea, Caffeine, Green Coffee, Conjugated Linoleic Acid, Xanthinol Nicotinate, Cnidium Powder, Eleuthero Powder.

Intechra Health manufactures TRIMTHIN X700 at a cGMP facility. This means it has met or exceeded the good manufacturing practices of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and has earned its certification. This assures consumers that a high priority has been placed on quality and safety in the making of this product.

To use these diet pills according to the manufacturer’s directions, they are taken 2 at a time. Two are taken a half hour before breakfast with an 8 ounce glass of water. Another 2 are taken a half hour before lunch in the same way. No more than 4 should be taken in a day and the pills shouldn’t be taken within 5 hours of going to sleep as they do contain stimulants.

PHENBLUE Review

PHENBLUE is an American made weight management pill that can be purchased without a prescription. It is a capsule containing a proprietary formula meant to be used as a part of a complete strategy that also includes healthy nutritious dieting and exercise appropriate to the dieter’s fitness level.

This is an over the counter pill and it is manufactured by Intechra Health Inc. That company is American and manufactures its products in the United States, as well. Its manufacturing facility has been certified GMP by the FDA, which means that it meets the good manufacturing practices standards of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The official website for the product shows that the company prides itself on the quality of its ingredients. The PHENBLUE proprietary formula is made exclusively of ingredients that have been clinically studied. The research cited on the website shows that the substances in this weight management capsule have been shown to be fat burners, appetite suppressants and energy boosters.

Those types of ingredient can help to make a much needed difference in supporting a dieter’s effort to reach his or her goals. The reason is that they help a dieter with control when it comes to some of the top most identified complaints regarding what makes it difficult to lose weight.

For instance, many dieters feel that their metabolism simply isn’t fast enough to help them to reach their goals at the speed they would like. Slow metabolisms can make it very difficult to lose weight and can take its toll on a person’s motivation to keep trying. Fat burners can help the body to burn through calories and fats at a faster rate, in essence speeding up the metabolism. This is particularly true when combined with cardio exercises, which naturally increase the body’s rate of fat burning. Many dieters look to this type of pill to help them to get the very most out of every workout.

Other dieters find that their hunger is the main barrier between them and their goals. When all they can think about is food, it makes it difficult to keep portion control and smart meal and snack choices high on the priority list. Fat blockers can support a dieter’s efforts to stay within a reasonable daily calorie limit by reducing or even eliminating food cravings.

Energy boosters don’t often get the credit they deserve in the weight loss industry. Energy plays two very vital roles in losing weight. The first is it gives a dieter alertness and drive, making it easier to stay motivated to keep up with the efforts necessary to lose weight. The second is that it helps to improve workout performance. Therefore, energy boosters can help to ensure that every minute spent exercising is being used to its fullest.

In PHENBLUE’s case, the ingredients that make up the formula are: NeOPuntia® (Prickly Pear), Caffeine (150mg), Organic Green Tea (Matcha) Leaf Powder, and Theobromine.

Metabo 379 Review

Metabo 379 is a nonprescription diet pill that is designed to provide dieters to achieve faster fat burning. The goal is to help dieters to boost the results of their efforts by giving their bodies the ability to work through calories and fats more quickly than would be possible on their own.

The official website for the company that makes this product – BioTrust Nutrition – has a website dedicated to Metabo 379. It claims that by using this diet pill, dieters can lose 3.79 times more weight than they would on their own. It isn’t clear exactly how they obtained this figure as no studies or research have been cited.

The site also claims that by taking this pill you can expect to start seeing results in as little as two weeks from starting. Not only will you lose weight over three times more quickly, says the site, but you will also see a 2.2 times decrease in waist and hip size. Again, no studies were cited to share how that figure was obtained, nor was it made clear what “2.2x decrease in waist & hip size” actually means. It wasn’t stated what the 2.2 times figure was referring to or to what it was being compared.

Still, regardless of the lack of cited studies, the website still claims that the product has been scientifically proven. This may be true but it remains difficult to believe. The reason is that companies that have any reputable research to back their products will nearly always share links to that research. This is because scientific studies are time consuming and expensive. Moreover, scientific proof is rare within this industry. So if it is present, companies will jump at the chance to share it with customers. This is not the case with Metabo 379.

Every bottle contains 60 capsules and as each serving is only 1 capsule, this means that a bottle provides sixty servings. Every capsule contains a formula made of up SIGMALean complex (sphaeranthus indicus flower head extract and garcinia mangostana fruit rind extract) and BIOperine piper nigrum fruit extract.

Unfortunately, without actually citing a study, the claims that the formula is “scientifically-backed” by “peer-reviewed research” doesn’t offer much to customers. It doesn’t show what kind of research was performed, who conducted it, how it was conducted , what was found, or even for what purpose the research was conducted. Nothing about the claims say that the scientific research proved that its use results in weight loss. The ingredients could have provided any results at all to be involved in peer-reviewed research.

It is unlikely that any doctor would ever consider these claims acceptable or believable and it is, therefore, difficult to think of a reason to recommend this product.

phenXTREME Review

phenXTREME is a nonprescription weight loss supplement produced by SuppleSense LLC. It is designed to be a product that will help to support weight loss. In fact, it is marketed as being an over the counter alternative to the popular prescription diet drug called Phentermine (Adipex). This helps to explain the “phen” portion of the product’s name, as it is suggesting this connection right into its name.

There are dozens, if not hundreds of nonprescription weight loss supplements on today’s market shelves that make very similar claims. Therefore, it’s up to the dieter to do his or her homework to know for certain that this will be an appropriate product for his or her needs and unique medical history.

phenXTREME is made of a proprietary formula. At the time this review was written, the ingredients within that blend consisted of: caffeine anhydrous, schisandra fruit, L-Arginine, beta-alanine, guarana seed extract, uva ursi, capsicum, garcina cambogia, green coffee bean extract, raspberry ketone and tribulus terrestris.

The directions for this product say that one serving is 2 capsules. Each serving contains 936 mg in total of the ingredients within the proprietary blend. While it is perfectly legal for a manufacturer to label a proprietary blend with a total quantity of ingredients instead of identifying each amount separately, this can be frustrating for dieters who are trying to inform themselves.

After all, if you are researching a substance to see if it is effective or if it can lead to side effects, then it isn’t just the substance that will be researched, but also how it is used and how much of it. There is, after all, a big difference between using 100 mg of caffeine anhydrous – about the same as a cup of coffee – or 300 mg. This can be the difference between a helpful energy boost or a range of side effects like anxiety, jitters, nausea, headaches, rapid heartbeat, heart palpitations and others.

Considering the number of different stimulants in this product (caffeine anhydrous, guarana seed extract, and green coffee bean extract) and the fact that it also contains diuretics like uva ursi, it would be very helpful to dieters if they could know just how much of these substances they are taking.

It is very important to speak with a doctor before beginning the use of this product. Stimulants and diuretics are not safe for all dieters and could place a person’s health at risk if used alongside certain other products or medical conditions. It is also important that this type of pill be combined with the right lifestyle changes in order to gain possible benefits while avoiding certain unwanted symptoms that can be associated with the use of this type of ingredients list.

Slimatee Review

Slimatee is a nonprescription herbal product that is made and sold by a company called Ideal Health. It is among a growing category of tea based products focused on helping people to slim down their waistlines.

At the time of the writing of this review, this product was being sold on many sites, particularly large marketplaces such as Amazon and eBay. That said, the official manufacturer’s or brand’s website could not be located through search engines such as Google. There is a website for a company called Ideal Health LLC which also produces supplements, but it doesn’t appear as though that company is related to this particular item.

An article published in 2016 also made reference to a supplement brand experiencing considerable harm following a collaboration with one of Donald Trump’s brands. However, again, it is unclear as to whether or not that is the same company as the one producing this product.

Therefore, the information used for the purposes of creating this review was gleaned from some of the sites that sell it as no official data could be located despite significant efforts. The fact that a manufacturer cannot be tracked down doesn’t necessarily reflect well on a product. Most reputable companies will provide at least a basic web presence with contact information, if only in the form of a social media page.

Slimatee is sold in boxes of 20 teabags. It claims to be made of substances that have been used for weight loss for hundreds of years. Each unbleached paper tea bag is meant to be prepared into one cup of tea. According to the product package, each tea bag contains: frangula bark, senna leaf, hibiscus flowers, black tea, goldenrod herb and maté tea.

Those ingredients are all quite commonplace in herbal teas and the maté is frequently seen in stimulant-based diet pills under the name “yerba mate.” That said, the rest of the ingredients are more likely to act as laxatives and diuretics than they are weight loss promoters. Therefore, even if this product does work, any weight lost will not be in the form of fat. It will be lost fluids and, if the dieter was constipated, they might lose a bit of weight from reduced waste after the laxatives have taken effect.

Laxatives and diuretics are not typically considered to be a safe form of weight loss for many people. Moreover, any difference in size or weight is extremely temporary as it is not the result of actual lost fat.

Fentalena ReviewFentalena is a nonprescription weight loss pill that is named to sound somewhat like FenPhen, or possibly Phentermine despite the fact that it does not contain that banned drug or prescription medication. It is marketed specifically toward women.

The official website for this product indicates that it assists women with their weight loss as it “attacks your fat loss in 3 proven female approved ways!” That said, the site doesn’t do very much to show who proved these methods or how. It does claim that the 3 different proven ways are: appetite suppression, thermogenesis and energy boosting.

Among these benefits, the goal is essentially to make it easier for women to lose weight by feeling less hungry, more energized and making it possible for their bodies to burn fat faster. It is unclear as to why those benefits are specific to women, as it does sound as though men would be able to benefit from those types of benefits just as readily when it comes to weight loss.

At the time this review was written, the ingredients in Fentalena included: Garcinia Cambogia Extract, Raspberry Ketones, Green Coffee Bean Extract, Yohimbe Bark Extract, Green Tea Leaf, Acai Fruit Extract, Goji Fruit Extract, Pomegranate Fruit Extract, Cinnamon Twig, Noni Fruit Extract, Galangal Rhizome, Naringin, Glucuronloactone, Hoodia godonii extract, Guggulsterones E & Z.

This is quite a substantial list of ingredients and makes one wonder if there could truly be enough of each of those ingredients to be possible for them all to produce a detectable effect. It is also important to note that there are quite a few ingredients that contain stimulants and a large number that are essentially hyped by the media but that do not have a significant body of evidence through reputable scientific study to support their use.

In fact, of all the ingredients within this product, it is the green tea leaf that has the most research behind it. That said, it is already fifth down on the list. As most research says about 500 mg of this substance is needed to produce an effect that could support weight loss, it is unlikely that this amount has been used in the product considering where it is on the list.

This is especially true because the entire proprietary formula contains 1467 mg. As 500 mg would make up over one third of the total and there are four ingredients ahead of it on the list, it is mathematically impossible for that amount of green tea to have been included in the product.

Energybolizer Original Formula ReviewEnergybolizer Original Formula is an over the counter weight loss product made for dieters who are seeking to reduce their body fat while they build lean muscle mass. The goal is to let users burn away the layer of fat covering up a more toned and fit body.

The company behind Energybolizer Original Formula is called OLAX. That business sells a number of different supplement products both within the weight loss category and a number of other parts of the wellness industry. That company does have an official website through which it provides a certain amount of information about this product. This includes the ingredients that make up the product formula.

A great deal of the real estate on that website suggests that research supports the use of Energybolizer Original Formula for the promised results of boosted muscle and reduced fat. That said, while there are many mentions of the studies, that research isn’t exactly cited at the time this review was written. Furthermore, beyond not providing a link to any location where the study results were published, the company also has not identified who conducted the research, what method was used, how many participants were involved – if it was a human study – or how the results were measured.

This makes it very difficult to place much faith in the research they continually mention. After all, a company with reputable, published research supporting their product would be far more likely to cite that research in order to prove its legitimacy. In this case, there is no way to know if it was conducted by a university or hospital, or if the company conducted its own research through its own methods.

At the time this review was written, the Energybolizer Original Formula was made of: chromium picolinate, white willow bark, green tea, Siberian ginseng, 72 trace mineral complex, garcinia cambogia, royal jelly, ginger, bladderwrack, foti, guarana, hawthorn berries, saw palmetto, kola nut, beer root powder, yerba mate, vitamin B12, and gingko biloba.

None of those ingredients have been proven to directly lead to weight loss by any studies that would be considered acceptable by the medical community. Moreover, it is likely that due to the number of ingredients containing stimulants in this formula, many dieters will experience side effects as the result of its use.

It is highly recommended that anyone who is thinking of purchasing or trying this product first speak with a pharmacist or licensed doctor.

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.
