Apidren PM ReviewApidren PM is a caffeine-free dietary supplement designed to help you continue your fat burning and weight loss efforts, even while you sleep. It is made in the USA and comes from a company called NutriPharm. The company also produces a product called Apidren, It is common for many users, who are seeking 24-hour fat burning and other weight management benefits to take both the Apidren and Apidren PM products.

Apidren PM is free of stimulants, so you can take it at nighttime without worrying about it affecting your sleep. Furthermore, in addition to being designed to aid in weight loss while you sleep, the products ingredients may also help you obtain a more restful slumber.

When this review of Apidren PM was written, it was composed of the following ingredients: Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Chromium, GABA, Irvingia Gabonensis, Magnolia Bark Extract, Pellodendron Amurense Bark Extract, Melatonin, LactoSpore.

The suggested use is to take 2 capsules with 8 – 12 ounces of water approximately 1 – 2 hours before bedtime. Users are cautioned not to drive or operate heavy machinery when taking Apidren PM.

Essentially, the mixture of herbs that make up the Apidren PM formula may help regulate blood sugar levels, burn fat, breakdown fat and help the body relax.

That being said, it is highly unlikely that you will experience measureable fat loss from taking Apidren PM. The reason is that no matter if it helps you burn or breakdown fat, the only way to shed pounds is by combining a healthy calorie-conscious diet with regular exercise. You’re not going to be burning tons of fat while you’re immobile and sleeping.

That being said, one way that Apidren PM may be able to benefit some people is by helping them to get a more restful sleep. If this product does manage to do this (keeping in mind that it has never been studied or proven to be effective in this way), it could be beneficial to your overall health and weight loss goals. The reason is that regular restful sleep can improve your health and benefit your weight loss goals by helping you maintain a high-functioning metabolism.

Prior to taking Apidren PM, it is strongly recommended that you first run your intentions to do so by your healthcare provider to make sure this is a safe option for you. This is especially important if you are pregnant, nursing, have a medical condition or are currently taking medication.

Plexus BioCleanse is a nonprescription weight loss product. It was designed to help people who are battling with uncomfortable bloating as a result of a busy lifestyle that doesn’t include adequate fiber and exercise. The official description for this product specifically underscores the fact that it contains magnesium among its ingredients. This nutrient is known to be beneficial to the digestive system.

The official website for this product claims that it provides a long list of benefits. Among them are the cleansing of the gastro-intestinal tract, assisting in boosting physical energy levels, providing antioxidant support through added vitamin C, and offering relief for occasional constipation which is not in the form of chronic constipation. This product is both vegetarian-friendly and gluten free.

The formula is made of vitamin C, magnesium, sodium, a bioflavonoid complex (which contains orange peel, lemon peel and whole quince fruit. As a whole, this product essentially acts as a laxative and does not contain any ingredients that have been directly connected with actual fat loss on the body.

To use this product, the package directions recommend that users take two Plexus BioCleanse capsules along with 8 ounces of water. This should be done twice per day. The capsules should be taken between meals, not with them.

Despite the fact that this product is sold in the weight loss category, it is unlikely to cause anything but very temporary weight loss. This is because the weight that it helps to reduce is not in the form of body fat. Instead, it helps to relieve the added weight and size caused by bloating and constipation. Therefore, while fat is not being burned away, it does help to decrease the presence of gas, retained water and a buildup of waste in the digestive system.

This type of product should be used with great care. For one thing, laxatives may not be appropriate for people who suffer from chronic constipation – which the product does mention in its description. Therefore, it’s important to know the cause of your constipation before taking an over the counter product to correct it.

Moreover, using laxatives in this way can cause the body to reduce its ability to effectively produce bowel movements on its own. This can mean that a user may build an increasing need to rely on laxatives in order to avoid constipation.

It is highly recommended that a doctor be consulted before beginning the use of Plexus BioCleanse.

Prescopodene is an over the counter weight loss supplement pill that has been designed to assist dieters in their effort to drop their excess pounds more easily and rapidly than would be possible with diet and exercise alone. The official website lists three different company names behind this product. These are Drop Down Ltd, Fittiny Health Ltd. and JC Arnica Corp.

When looking into those companies, JC Arnica Corp is a business based in Panama that has locations in the United States, New Zealand, Australia, Panama, Philippines, Canada, Romania, and the United Kingdom. This was the only company among the three for which an official website could be found. The Prescopodene diet pill is listed among the products it produces, on that official website, as well as on the pill’s own official website.

Fittiny Health Ltd. is a company based in the United Kingdom. It was first registered on February 8, 2013. Drop Down Ltd. is also registered in the United Kingdom and was created on the same day as Fittiny Health, though their addresses are entirely different. Both Fittiny Health and Drop Down are currently registered as active but dormant.

Therefore, the information for this review was gleaned from the official Prescopodene website, as well as the official website of JC Arnica Corp. Typically, after speaking with a doctor, the first step in reviewing a diet pill is to look into its ingredients. What was interesting about this process in the case of Prescopodene is that the ingredients are listed differently on the official pill website and the official manufacturer’s website.

The pill’s website lists the ingredients as being: green tea, grape seed extract, vitamin C and B6, quercetin, magnesium, L-tyrosine, hordenine, octopamine, tyramine, ginger root, and pantothenic acid.

On the other hand, the manufacturer’s website lists the ingredients as: green tea extract, DMAE, tyrosine, pyridoxine HCP, yerba mate, vitamin C, magnesium, pantothenic acid, ginger root, grape seed extract, cocoa extract, and Avantra Z.

Oddly, neither one of those lists is all that impressive, as there is only one ingredient on both lists – the green tea – that has any substantial scientific or medical evidence to suggest that it will produce the outcomes that it promises. That said, the list on the pill’s site is favorable to that of the manufacturer’s site, if only because it does not contain Avantra Z, which is made from bitter orange (citrus aurantium). That substance contains synephrine, against which the FDA has released a consumer safety warning.

It is notable that the official website of the manufacturer said that this product was created with “extensive testing and landmark clinical trials,” but it did not provide any of the details of that research.

Hydroxycut Instant Drink Mix is a dietary supplement for weight loss. It is designed to increase energy and is meant to be taken in conjunction with diet and exercise to help dieters lose more weight than if they were just dieting alone.

The key ingredients in Hydroxycut Instant Drink Mix are lady’s mantle extract, wild olive extract, komijn extract, and wild mint extract. The claim is that these ingredients, which make up the Hydroxyprovia part of the Pro Clinical Hydroxycut Blend in this product, provide effective weight loss results.

At the time of this review, the official product page for Hydroxycut Instant Drink Mix mentions two studies conducted on the product’s key ingredients to further prove the efficacy of these ingredients in regard to weight loss. However, the studies were conducted only on the ingredients and not on the actual supplement. Furthermore, there are no citations provided for the studies that are mentioned. Therefore, what is provided on the website is not enough clinical evidence to prove that these ingredients are actually effective for weight loss. In other words, there is absolutely no proof that this product can help someone lose weight.

In addition to the key ingredients, Hydroxycut Instant Drink Mix also contains caffeine anhydrous, acerola concentrate, goji extract, blueberry, pomegranate, bilberry extract, vitamin C, and calcium. Caffeine anhydrous is the energy boosting ingredient in this supplement. That being said, because it has been used in the formula, there is the potential for caffeine-related side effects. Some of these may include: sleeplessness, rapid heartbeat, nervousness, restlessness, jitters, upset stomach, etc.

On a plus side, this product contains no sugar and is only 10 calories per serving. It is also very easy to take and comes in a tasty wildberry flavor. According to the official website, the best way to take this product is to open a standard size (16.9 ounces) bottle of water, take a sip of water, and then pour one full packet of the drink mixture into the bottle. Close it, shake it well, open, and then drink right away. Do this three times per day, 30 minutes prior to eating a major meal.

For best results, the manufacturer recommends that you do not snack between meals or after dinner. You should also consume between 8 – 10 glasses of water daily and you should not take more than three of the drink packets within a 24 hour period.

It is in your best interest to speak with your healthcare provider before taking this product.

The Vitabase Fat Blocker provides clear claims about what it says that it will provide to dieters. It states that it will assist in blocking the absorption and storage of fat, making it easier for a dieter to be able to lose weight. Moreover, it also claims that certain food sugars can also be blocked through the use of this product.

Though it claims that it is “Dr Passero Approved”, at the time of this review, it had not mentioned any specific clinical studies to support the claims of the entire formula or to indicate that any of the individual ingredients can provide the type of outcomes that it claims. That said, upon researching the main ingredients in the formula, it does look as though two of them might have some impact on weight loss. The problem is that the official website does not reveal how much of each ingredient is contained within the formula, so it is not possible to verify whether enough has been used in order to produce the potential benefits.

The main ingredients in the Vitabase Fat Blocker are: Vitamin C, Vitamin B2, Gymnema Sylvestre, Garcinia Cambogia and Chitosan. The vitamins in this formula are contained in low doses (for example, only 25 milligrams of Vitamin C), but they are not the main contributors to the formula. Vitamin C, for example, is a healthy antioxidant but it is not associated with any form of weight loss benefit. B vitamins are known to help to help with food metabolism and frequently passed through the body quite quickly so this may provide some benefit, in theory.

Gymnema sylvestre, assuming that it is used in an adequate quantity, could help to regulate blood glucose levels. This doesn’t directly lead to weight loss, but it can help to avoid blood glucose spikes and drops that often result in shaky motivation and food cravings. Chitosan is an ingredient that has some potential in this formula, if used properly, as it has been shown to have some appetite suppressing benefits in certain small, short-term studies. It is a type of fiber, and when taken with enough water, it can help to provide the body with a fuller feeling. Garcinia cambogia was once considered to be a very powerful fat burner. It acts as a stimulant which can help to shrink the appetite. The problem is that it needs to be taken in massive quantities to be effective, as it is weaker than regular caffeine.

The Accuslim Fat Blocker is marketed as a diet supplement that gives you the ability to eat what you want without having to feel guilty. The official website for the product explains that fiber is the central element that should be considered for stopping the body from absorbing excess fat. It stated that fat becomes trapped before it can be taken in by the body to either be used as energy, or stored as body fat.

If this pill actually does as its manufacturers claim, it could mean that it could considerably reduce the number of calories that a dieter will take in from having consumed his or her foods in a day. As fats are typically very high in calories, by blocking a certain percentage of the total that is eaten from being used as energy (immediate or stored) it can help to keep caloric intake under control without having to sacrifice favorite foods.

However, the Accuslim Fat Blocker official website did not, at the time of this review, include the percentage of fat that will actually be blocked from being absorbed.

The website indicated that Liposan Ultra: Chitosan and vitamin C were the ingredients in the formula. Those two ingredients are all that makes up the product. Chitosan is a substance that is obtained from the shells of seafood such as crab and shrimp. According to the manufacturer, this substance is able to surround the fat that is consumed in the form of food, stopping it from being absorbed by the body, allowing the fat to progress right through the digestive system without being absorbed.

There are a number of studies that suggest that this claim may be true, though not to the point that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the substance for this purpose. The FDA feels strongly enough about this fact that it contacted eVitamins.com in 2004 with regards to two products that contained chitosan. The claims associated with those products were that they would bind to fat and therefore make it easier for users to lose weight. According to the FDA, there was inadequate scientific data to support these claims.

The manufacturers of Accuslim Fat Blocker claim that its product is easier to absorb than other supplements containing chitosan, so that it can be taken at mealtime without having to wait 30 minutes to an hour in advance. No link or reference to clinical or scientific research trials are made to indicate that this claim is true.

Hydroxycut Pro Clinical Caffeine Free is one of the many products in the famous Hydroxycut line. These supplements for weight loss are often advertised and the brand is continually releasing new formulas. This particular version is a type that is 100 percent free of caffeine, though it does not specify whether or not that means that it is stimulant free as well.

At $30 per bottle, this is actually among the cheaper over the counter supplements on the weight loss market. However, whether or not this has any value depends on the effectiveness of the product and the number of days that one bottle will last. It is important to take a closer look at the ingredients list before deciding to take Hydroxycut Pro Clinical Caffeine Free.

Among the ingredients in the long list that makes up Hydroxycut Pro Clinical Caffeine Free are: vitamin C, lady’s mantle extract, wild olive extract, komjin extract, wild mint extract, goji extract, pomegranate, bilberry extract and a number of others both active and inactive.

The design of Hydroxycut Pro Clinical Caffeine Free is said to be “rapid release”, leading the dieter to be able to experience the benefits very quickly after swallowing the pill. The marketing states that there is no caffeine in the pill, which makes it more appealing to individuals who experience jitters, anxiety, and insomnia from having taken that substance.

According to the manufacturer, Hydroxycut Pro Clinical Caffeine Free functions by helping to reduce your body mass index when it is taken three times every day along with water (two pills at a time), for a total of six pills per day. It also recommends that the formula be taken for 8 to 12 consecutive weeks for the best results. The directions also encourage dieters to drink 8 to 10 glasses of water every day while taking this product. This is likely to reduce the risk of dehydration.

Unfortunately, at the time of this review, the ingredients list for Hydroxycut Pro Clinical Caffeine Free was not explained by the manufacturer in order to indicate what of the ingredients is supposed to provide a dieter in terms of benefits. There are some warnings that are applied to this product, including a suggestion that pregnant or nursing women and individuals under the age of 18 not take this product. It is also not appropriate for people with certain health conditions to take these pills, so it is recommended that anyone considering taking it should first speak with their doctors.
