said, even if it is as effective as it claims to be, you need to be able to handle a massive number of stimulants if you are going to avoid unpleasant side effects.
A Formula of Stimulants
The stimulants in Nuphedragen – if not the other ingredients – have been shown to be beneficial for people who are trying to lose weight not because they necessary cause the weight loss in themselves but they can help to boost energy. An energy boost is important among dieters because it is easy to run out of steam when you increase your activity level while reducing your caloric intake.
Thermogenic agents, such as caffeine, can stimulate the central nervous system and promote thermogenesis, which can help increase metabolic rate, potentially burning fat at a quicker rate.
That said, though the manufacturers do claim that their ingredients are quite different from everything else out there, there aren’t any disclosed ingredients in the marketing materials that are not included in any number of other similar products.
Whether unique or not Nuphedragen is a heavily stimulant-based medication that could potentially benefit those who can handle stimulants very well.
The disclosed ingredients for Nuphedragen include:
- Dicaffeine Malate
- Synephrine HCI
A More Detailed Look at Nuphedragen Ingredients
The first ingredient, dicaffeine, is a brand-name form of “improved” caffeine that they claim is more effective for weight loss – though there is no research to prove this statement. Caffeine on its own, though, is known to help with weight loss due to its energy boosting and thermogenic properties.
The second ingredient, chocamine, is an altered version of cocoa extract which attempts to improve its efficacy, though it has never been proven to be any better than standard cocoa. That being said, while cocoa does have some health benefits, weight loss is not among its proven effects.
Synephrine in Nuphedragen and some studies have started to indicate that in a clinical setting it can influence weight loss. At the same time, it is a serious stimulant that can cause many unwanted side effects that are often seen with other stimulants such as nausea, jitters, sleeplessness, anxiety, and others.
A Potent Supplement
Because of the number of stimulants included in Nuphedragen, it is considered to be a potent dietary supplement, made very clear even in their marketing materials and on their official website, as well as in the appearance of the packaging for this drug.
Though the website isn’t as professional as that of other similar drugs, it does include more information such as ingredients as well as a testimonials section which are important and yet often missing on websites for diet drugs.
Regardless of the information provided, testimonials, etc., the bottom line is that Nuphendragen contains several stimulant ingredients, which may pose more risk than benefit to certain individuals, especially those who are sensitive to stimulant or thermogenic ingredients. As such, it would be in your best interest to first consult with your healthcare provider before you use this dietary supplement. This is of particular importance if you are pregnant, nursing or planning on becoming pregnant, or if you have an existing medical condition or are using medication or herbal supplements to currently treat a health condition.
Update March 2020
Although information about Nuphedragen and images of the product can still be found online, the official product page no longer exists and this OTC diet pill cannot be purchased on the web, at least not from reputable sources. Moreover, there is no info regarding when or if it might return. That being said, it is likely that this weight management aid has been discontinued, especially considering the domain NuPhedraGen.com is presently for sale.
While it may be a let down for you that this product is gone, on the plus side, nothing about its formula was unique. Moreover, it was composed mostly of stimulants. The reality is that there are several non-prescription diet pills out there that are packed full of stimulants and that have similar formulas to Nuphedragen. In other words, if you truly want to find a pill that is similar to this one, you will likely find it.
Be that as it may, while stimulant ingredients can help to provide an energy boost, which can be beneficial for weight loss, this is only a benefit if the stimulants do not cause other adverse effects, such as jitters, the shakes or insomnia. If you should choose a diet pill that contains one or more stimulants, it’s always a good idea to first assess your tolerance before taking the maximum dose, to see how your body reacts.
