Phenocerin claims that it “gives you real tools for improvement, a winning edge for weight loss. Combined with your other efforts, it will help increase your energy, help boost your body’s fat-burning power, and help control your appetite, making the weight loss happen faster and more easily than if you were “on your own.” (Their boldings, not mine.) Judging from their ingredient profile, this isn’t likely to be true.
But the shady marketing doesn’t stop there. They have very misleading before and after photos, questionable testimonials, and empty promises. Read on in the Phenocarin review to get a better picture of the diet pill itself as well as the company behind it.
Hoodia Gardonii – If you’ve read many reviews on this website at all, chances are you’ve found one that has included hoodia, along with my extremely poor reviews of it. Hoodia has become extremely popular as of late but the fact still stands that there is absolutely NO supporting research to back up its claims of appetite suppression. Phenocerine also doesn’t disclose how much of this ingredient they’ve included which is never a good sign (although in reality, it wouldn’t matter anyways since I don’t believe hoodia to be effective).
Chromium Picolinate – Some studies show chromium to help in regulation of body fat storage (through insulin regulation). Others studies show that it has no effect. To be completely decisive, there will need to be more studies done.
Before and after photos – I got a kick out of this one. The first thing that you see on the website is Tina’s success story. For one, I think they look like two different people, but that’s just me. But if you look at their website, the diet pill container that she is holding is not even the Phenocerin bottle- it’s much darker (and I’ve only seen one version of the Phenocerin bottle). Something is fishy if they are mixing up bottles in their before and after photos.
In addition to that, in small letters below “Tina’s” testimonial, you see this: “Testimonial results not typical; your results may vary. Individual used Phenocerin with diet and exercise and has been remunerated.” If the results aren’t typical, why would you make that your main testimonial and sales pitch? Also, in case you were wondering, “remunerated” means “compensated” or “paid.” I’m not sure how valid a paid testimonial is, but I would definitely take it into consideration if I were you.
They also have a slew of techniques to try to make them look more credible than they actually are. One of these is a posting of a picture of some “doctor” above an explanation of why Phenocerin will work (as if the doctor was saying it rather than the makers of Phenocerin). I also searched to find any reference of Phenocerin on those programs that were listed in the “AS SEEN ON” box. Not suprisingly, I couldn’t find anything at all. Oh and did I mention that the testimonial photos all appear to be model shots? For some reason, I don’t beleive that all of the people in the testimonials that they used just happened to have a professional photo taken the previous week.
$59.00 for a 1 month supply. For the two (ineffective) ingredients that it includes, that seems quite high.
They have a guarantee on their “free trial” but not on their actual product when purchased.
When buying a diet pill, we first look at the ingredients. Which in this case, are rather poor in our opinion (and in the opinion of the research behind the ingredients). We then look at the company touting the diet pill. If they use shady marketing and dirty selling tactics, something has to be wrong and I sure wouldn’t put a pill into my body that is produced by such a company. Don’t let Phenocerin scam you into having you pay a high price tag for an inneffective product.
