While sounding like two separate ingredients that have had their share of controversy in the diet pill world, phentermine and ephedra, Fenphedra has entered the weight loss world, promising it’s users to not only suppress those pesky hunger pangs, but to burn excess fat as well. And these results are guaranteed, or you can have your hard earned money returned to you.
Sounds like a good deal. Strangely named after banned ingredients though, is there more than meets the eye with this product? Is there anything wrong with the it, as it’s own name seems to connotate? We decided to find out.
Fenphedra is manufactured by the Utah based Synergistic Nutritional Compounds LLC. Synergistic Nutritional Compounds is known for making other dietary supplements, such as SlimVox (which we have also reviewed.) Fenphedra can be purchased on it’s own official website, as well as 3rd party retailers such as Amazon.com.
Fenphedra claims that there are two neurohormones that actively play roles in weight loss/ gain. They are leptin, which suppresses appetite, and NPY, which makes you hungry. Fenphedra claims to help with leptin production, as well as activating the CART (Cocaine Amphetamine Regulated Transcript), which raises insulin levels, as well as bringing energy to the muscles, as opposed to storing it as fat.
Despite the claims on the company’s website that users have lost anywhere from 20-60 pounds, independent reviews of this product report that results are not at all typical.
While the company’s website does list what ingredients go into Fenphedra, the list supplied not only is incomplete, but also lacks an amount given for the individual ingredients. Because of this it is unclear exactly what ingredients are effective, or if they are effective at all. Diet pills on the top 10 list avoid this practice. It should also be noted that there is a dated version of Fenphedra and it’s ingredient list on the internet, which may confuse readers looking to research this product.
There are no known side effects from taking this product.
Unlike more stimulant based diet pills, Fenphedra has no known side effects, which may come as a relief for some.
To start, Fenphedra has problems with it’s presentation. While advertising on the picture of the box that it has 60 capsules inside it, the official website’s FAQ section claims that each box of Fenphedra contains 69 capsules! It’s not a good sign when the company’s own website can’t agree with itself.
But this isn’t the only problem. Fenphedra fails to give a complete ingredient list. With more research one can find a complete list, but when found, it’s revealed that there isn’t that much of each ingredient in each pill, which makes the product overall insufficient for weight loss.
But hey, don’t take our word for it! A look on Amazon.com reveals many customers that found themselves unsatisfied after trying this product. This is unlike the testimonials on the company’s website. Who are you going to believe, what the company says about the product or what others say about it?
With each box of Fenphedra costing nearly $70, these are factors to consider.
While not containing the potentially dangerous ingredients ephedra or phentermine, that doesn’t mean that this product is any good. In fact there isn’t much evidence that this product is effective at all.
Don’t let names deceive, this product isn’t as dangerous as it may sound. Still though, that does not mean that it is effective. Listing only a partial list of it’s ingredients, a full breakdown into what goes into this pill reveals ingredients that aren’t all that effective in weight loss. Better diet pills don’t use the same tactics as this diet pill. While trying to get attention for itself, this pill may succeed. As for actually producing positive results, that’s where this product falls short.
