Phentremine-X claims to be “Rated Number One Diet Pill for Successful Weight Loss.” This diet pill is actually a tablet and a capsule that also claims to be rated higher than top prescription medications for weight loss. That’s a pretty tall order for a diet pill. Let’s see if this company can back up their claims.
Proprietary Blend 477 mg
- Vitamin B12 25 mcg
- Chromium 25 mcg
Proprietary Blend 750 mg
- Hoodia Gordonii
- Citrus Aurantium Extract
- Senna Extract
- Evodie Extract
- Alpha Lipoic Acid
- White Willow Extract
- Yohimbe Extract
L-Phenylalanine-An amino acid that has been shown to aid in appetite suppression. It does this by releasing a hormone called cholecystokinin (CCK) in the intestines which sends a signal to the brain that you are full.
Synephrine, Citrus Aurantium-Also sold as the ingredient Advantra Z, synephrine is found in the citrus aurantium fruit, or bitter orange and is a good diet pill ingredient.
Caffeine-One of the few diet pill ingredients that actually has been proven in many clinical studies, caffeine is a stimulant and a diuretic that aids significantly to weight loss.
Chromium-Does chromium have an important role in blood sugar regulation? Yes. Has that been proven to directly aid in weight loss? Not yet.
Hoodia Gordonii-This is the latest fad ingredient for diet pills, but don’t be fooled; there are no independent studies that support hoodia’s claim for weight loss.
White Willow Extract-This is the ingredient that aspirin was developed from and it won’t help you lose weight.
Watch out for “proprietary” blends
While diet pill companies want you to think that a proprietary blend is something special, what these blends really are is a device to mask the amount of each ingredient. So for example, the proprietary blend in the Phentremine-X tablet contains some good diet pill ingredients (l-phenylalanine, synephrine, and caffeine) but the amount of each ingredient is not listed. There is no way to tell how much of each ingredient is in the tablet and whether or not the amount is enough to be effective. The same thing goes for the Phentremine-X capsule. There is no way to know what amount of each ingredient you are getting.
The Phentremine X marketers position this diet pill as a natural alternative to ephedra, ephedrine, and prescription Fastin and splash their website with a few random testimonials here and there. Basically, this marketing is the same old hype without information to back up any claims that we’ve seen before. Oh, and this company does offer an autoship program, but they are not sneaky about signing you up for it. You can buy as many or as few bottles of Phentremine X as you would like, then if you want you can sign up for automatic shipments. But as with any program like that, I would stay far, far away.
Phentremine X Price
To get the whole Phentremine X system, you need to purchase both the tablets and the capsules. A 30-day supply of tablets is $58.95 and a 30-day supply of capsules is $48.95. That is an outrageous price for a diet pill with “proprietary” ingredients! I would check out eBay.comThere is no guarantee on the Phentremine X website. I would never recommend a diet pill without a guarantee.
Because the amount of each ingredient in Phentremine X is not disclose and there in no guarantee-not to mention the expensive price-I am giving this diet pill a thumbs down. While this pill could have potential, it seems that the company is more concerned about making money than supporting their customers.
