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).

Cellucor C4 Extreme is a type of fat burning supplement that is meant to help with weight loss not among dieters, but among bodybuilders. This product is taken in powder form, instead of requiring the user to swallow a pill – which many people consider to be quite difficult. The product is measured in scoops, and contains a substance called synephrine, which has a certain chemical similarity to ephedra.

While ephedra is a banned substance due to the dangerous side effects that it causes, and the fact that it has lead to the deaths of several people, including at least one Major League Baseball player, synephrine is a legal alternative that rose in popularity after ephedra was banned by the FDA. That said, this doesn’t necessarily mean that synephrine is safe. In fact, the FDA has issued a warning to consumers that cautions them against the use of the substance, as that ingredient, too, has been linked to a number of very scary, severe side effects among some users.

The manufacturer of Cellucor C4 Extreme says that the main ingredient within the formula helps to increase the synthesis of ATP in the body and will simultaneously increase energy levels. It also claims that the metabolic rate increases as a result of taking this product, which boosts the body’s fat burning abilities, particularly when combined with exercise.

While this does sound similar to the claims made by certain diet pills, in this case, the product is not meant for a weight loss dieter as much as it is geared toward bodybuilders who are seeking to reduce the outer layer of fat on their bodies, so that they can achieve better definition for their muscles and a more “chiseled” look.

At the time of the writing of this review, the ingredients within the formula for Cellucor C4 Extreme were: 1,3-Dimethylamylamine, as well as N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine and Mucuna Pruriens, caffeine, and others. As caffeine is present within this formula, it is important to note that it is possible that some side effects are possible due to the presence of a stimulant. When combined with synephrine, this increases the chances that many users will experience such symptoms as tremors and shakes, nervousness, headache, sleep struggles, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, or any of many others.

Customer reviews of this product have said that they are pleased with how easily the powder dissolves in liquid and that it mixes relatively well, instead of remaining in solid form simply suspended within the liquid. The instructions state that it is important to place the product in a bottle and shake it vigorously with the liquid or it will not completely mix.

There are multiple flavors available for this product, but it was fruit punch and orange that seemed to receive the best reception by customers.

It is highly recommended that a doctor be consulted before starting the use of this product, as it should not be considered safe or appropriate for everyone.
