Dexaprine is an over the counter diet pill that has been designed to provide dieters with appetite suppression at the same time as it increases their energy levels. While the website remains highly enthusiastic about its benefits, it should be noted that these pills have been the center of a considerable amount of controversy as a result of claims from some users that there have been strong side effects associated with its use.

Before using Dexaprine, it is recommended that a doctor be consulted and that the potential user take a closer look at the ingredients. The reason is that this may not be appropriate for all users and it is a good idea to know that it will be safe, effective, and provide the expected results before spending the money or placing health at risk.

When investigating the formula, each of the ingredients should be carefully examined. When looking at the formula that currently makes up Dexaprine, the good news is that the ingredient that had previously been included in the formula and that was associated with powerful or even dangerous side effects has been removed. That ingredient has been banned in the United States, Canada, the U.K., and New Zealand, among others.

The new formulation of Dexaprine contains only ingredients that are legal in all of those countries. It contains: caffeine, green tea extract, acacia rigidula extract, and citrus aurantium. For anyone who is familiar with ingredients that are commonly found in the over the counter weight loss pill industry, the problems with this new formula should be easy to spot. For one thing, three quarters of its ingredients contain stimulants, two of which are very powerful. This, on its own, can cause side effects that are uncomfortable for many users.

However, the biggest problem that can be seen with this formula is that it contains citrus aurantium. That substance – also known as bitter orange – contains synephrine, which is a substance that can be dangerous for many users and can lead to severe side effects such as an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. That risk only increases when it is combined with caffeine, which Dexaprine also contains. The potential for an adverse reaction is strong enough that the FDA has released a warning to dieters not to use products that contain synephrine.

For this reason it would be difficult to think of a reason to recommend this product.

Diet Ultimo is a pill that is marketed as a powerful diet pill that will help a dieter to get the most out of his or her best weight loss efforts. However, it is a very good idea to take a second look at this product before deciding to purchase and use it. This can help to determine whether the product truly is what it promises to be, or whether it would be better to save the money and effort that would be spent on trying to benefit from it.

To start, regardless of whether or not this product actually works as claimed, there have been a very large number of people who have called the Diet Ultimo company a free diet pill scam. This is because it offers a free sample of the product, for which the user must provide his or her credit card details in order to pay for the shipping. From that point, though, the user is registered into an auto shipping (and auto billing) program that will continue to automatically renew every month. While this isn’t necessarily a scam, in itself – as there are some quite reputable auto shipping companies out there – the fact that many customers have had a very hard time trying to cancel these shipments and bills, and often complain of a minimum of one more shipment and billing after the cancellation point, speaks volumes.

In terms of the product itself, the manufacturers claim that it will help to reduce food cravings and will reduce fat while maintaining lean muscle. There doesn’t appear to be any kind of diet or exercise plan associated with the use of this product. That said, the information provided on the official website is exceptionally limited, so it is difficult to learn all that much about it or how to use it. It is focused primarily on praising itself and selling through the free trial.

At the time that this review was written, a list of ingredients for Diet Ultimo could not be found on the website. Moreover, while there was a product packaging image available on the site, it was not shown at an angle that would reveal the ingredients list or nutritional table. All that could be found was a reference to raspberry ketone and green coffee on the front of the package. Whether or not those are the only two ingredients within this product, or not, is unclear. A third party website also listed garcinia cambogia and citrus aurantium as a part of the ingredients list, but it is unclear whether or not those additional substances may still be in the formula, or if the formulation has been changed since that time.

Maxislim Day is a nonprescription diet pill that is designed to help dieters to be able to lose weight and achieve easier weight maintenance. Although the official webpage for the product on the manufacturer’s website never specifically says that it is formulated for women, the images on the bottle make it clear that the female market is their target group. That manufacturer, a company called Health Arena, also claims that this product’s formula helps to improve fat burning, suppresses the appetite, and boosts the metabolism.

This is a common claim, but whether or not it actually lives up to it will help to make it easier to understand whether this product is worth its low price.

It should be recognized that Maxislim Day is only one of a number of weight loss products produced and sold by Health Arena, and it is one of a line of different products being sold under the Maxislim brand name. The formula was recently created to remove 5-HTP and caffeine, which are both substances that have considerable scientific evidence to support their weight loss benefits, and replace them with citrus aurantium, acai berry and chili powder.

This could be considered to be a rather confusing move by the company considering that citrus aurantium is a substance that contains synephrine, and the FDA has released a warning cautioning consumers against the use of anything that contains that substance. The reason is that it has been linked to a number of strong side effects that could be uncomfortable for some dieters and that could be downright dangerous for people who have certain health conditions. Moreover the next ingredient that was brought in, acai berry, is known to be associated with some of the largest weight loss product scams in the history of the industry as there is absolutely nothing about that ingredient that has ever been scientifically or clinically linked to speeding up weight loss. That said, the chili powder does contain capsicum, which can help to produce a thermogenic reaction in the body and speed up fat burning provided that its use is combined with cardio exercise.

The rest of the active ingredients that make up Maxislim Day include L-tyrosine powder, green tea extract, conjugated linoleic acid powder (CLA), guarana seed extract, black pepper extract, vitamin B6, cayenne powder, and chromium.

It should be recognized that guarana seed extract is a powerful stimulant and green tea extract also contains a stimulant (caffeine). This, particularly combined with the citrus aurantium, could lead to some unwanted side effects such as trembling, nervousness, sleeplessness, nausea, and others.

Thermoburn is a nonprescription diet pill that is geared directly toward male dieters. In this effort, it has targeted all of its marketing claims and benefits toward that specific market. As the name implies, the way that this product has been designed to promote weight loss is through thermogenesis.

That is a process in which the body raises its temperature and, in doing so, burns more calories and fats as a fuel in order to produce that heat. This can help to enhance the metabolic rate and achieve greater fat loss if it is combined with exercise and if it is powerful enough.

The product, itself, is manufactured by Muscle Lab. That company is a nutrition business that is based in the U.S. and that also produces a number of other products within the same overall category.

According to the official website for Thermoburn, the ingredients that make up the formula for this diet pill include: guarana, vitamin B6, green tea extract, caffeine anhydrous, and citrus aurantium. It is very clear to anyone with experience in diet pills that this product is primarily based on stimulants. In fact, the stimulants in this formula are high enough that it should likely raise some red flags for many dieters. Every single one of those substances, other than the vitamin B6 contains some form of stimulant. In the case of the guarana, caffeine anhydrous, and citrus aurantium, this represents quite powerful stimulants.

When these substances are combined, it means that there will be many people who will experience side effects that could range from quite mild to very uncomfortable. At this level, side effects could include anything and everything from sleeplessness to jitters, from heart palpitations to a rapid heartbeat and a rise in blood pressure, from anxiety to nausea, and from diarrhea to constipation. There are many other side effects associated with the high use of stimulants, as well, and dieters should be aware of them before taking a product such as this one.

In fact, it is highly recommended that anyone who intends to use Thermoburn first speak with his doctor. The reason is that it is not only wise to do this before taking any diet pill, but in the case of these particular pills, there could be a risk that they could conflict with a medical condition or cause problems with drugs or even other supplements that are already being taken or that could be taken throughout the use of this diet pill.

System-Six, created by Irwin Naturals, is one of those odd weight loss pills that is mentioned in many different places online, but isn’t actually all that easy to find in terms of actually making a purchase. This is just one of the reasons that makes it important for you to get to know whether or not it will be worth your while to try to hunt it down and buy a bottle for yourself. Also called Diet System 6 and a handful of other names, it has become available at a selection of websites under its various names for approximately ten dollars for thirty pills.

Upon reading the marketing materials for System-Six, it doesn’t seem to offer much in terms of unique benefits when compared to other diet pills which may be less expensive and easier to procure. Its claims are that while you build your overall body muscle, you will also burn away excess fat and will have help doing it through a notable energy boost.

According to an online herbal remedie store that sells System-Six, these diet pills contain the following primary ingredients: St. John’s Wort Extract, Advantra-Z Citrus Aurantium Extract, Guarana, Yerba Mate, 5-HTP, Betaine, Chromium Picolinate, Garcinia Cambogia, Cayenne, Ginger Root, L-Carnitine, L-Tyrosine, Green Tea Extract, Spirulina, Kola Nut Extract and Bioperine.

Sytem-Six diet pills contain a few ingredients that are known to aid weight loss. For example, citrus aurantium, guarana, yerba mate, garcinia cambogia and green tea extract are all used to enhance metabolism, which is beneficial when you are trying to lose weight. These ingredients are very common in other non-prescription diet pills.

Overall, System-Six diet pills may be beneficial in helping your body burn more fat and they may even noticeably decrease appetite, however positive customer reviews are hard to come by. One of the major drawbacks of taking these diet pills is the shear amount you need to take. It is recommended that you take up to 6 capsules with every meal. If you eat three meals a day then you will be taking 18 pills a day, which seems excessive. At this rate, you will be taking a bottle of pills (130 gelcaps) every week and this can get expensive since it retails at approximately $20 for a bottle.

Though Irwin Naturals does have an official webpage, System-Six doesn’t seem to have its own official site or page, which is odd as it does seem that the drug is still being manufactured and made available elsewhere for sale.

Yellow Jacket

Yellow Jacket is a type of ephedra diet pills that is also being marketed as an energy supplement. The formula for this product consists of 25 mg of ephedrine in addition to 200 mg of caffeine. The official name for this drug type is barbiturates. It is important to note that as of April 2004, all dietary supplements containing ephedra have been banned by the FDA.

What this means is that the manufacture, purchase, and sale of Yellow Jacket is illegal in the United States. That said, they are also not legal in Canada and many other countries around the world that have found the potential side effects of ephedra to be too dangerous. The only approved uses for ephedra are in its synthetic form as a nasal congestion, asthma, or minor eye irritation treatment.

Other active ingredients in the Yellow Jacket formula include sida cordifolia, citrus aurantium, ginseng, kola nut extract, capsicum, and ginger root.

The main ingredient in Yellow Jacket is ephedra, which is a natural plant substance. Ephedrine is the actual ingredient within the formula, and is the main component of ephedra that gives it properties that are similar to amphetamines. This type of substance acts as a stimulant within the body which impacts the blood pressure and heart rate so that the result is an energy boost and appetite suppression.

The reason that Yellow Jacket and other ephedra (and ephedrine alkaloid) containing products were banned as dietary supplements is that there were reports of dangerous cardiovascular effects. Irregular heart rhythm and elevated blood pressure were among these concerns. Moreover, the FDA determined that any weight loss that resulted from the use of products that contained ephedra was only short-term. Moreover, the FDA also determined that ephedra supplements cause the blood pressure to increase, placing additional stress on the circulatory system. This stress to the circulatory system was associated, by the FDA, with heart disease and strokes. The result of this ban was that all dietary supplements containing ephedra, including Yellow Jacket, were banned from sale. That said, they are still being sold in countries outside the United States.

In order to compensate for the illegality of ephedra in the United States, many diet drug manufacturers started to alter their formulations to use herbal stimulants, such as bitter orange, instead. However, it is important to note that the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine has declared that these substitutes for ephedra in diet pills are not any safer than the ephedra itself.

Following the ban, other drug manufacturers started to produce supplements that do not contain ephedra under the name Yellow Jacket Energy Pills, with a formula that includes B-complex vitamins, caffeine, ginseng, guarana, and yerba mate, instead.
