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.
