According to a woman named Tiffany, the Thermocerin diet pill helped her lose 36 pounds in three months. Tiffany’s pictures look pretty legit, but a closer look at this diet pill shows that it doesn’t contain much more than an energy boost.
White and Green Tea-Green tea is a common addition to diet pills and helps boost your energy and may increase your metabolism. White tea is the same as any other teas except the leaves are harvested before the leaves are fully open and the leaves are covered with white hair, hence the name.
Capsaicin-The active ingredient in cayenne peppers, capsaicin is an irritant that causes a burning sensation when it comes in contact with any tissue. Cayenne peppers produce capsaicin to deter mammals from eating them.
Caffeine-A common stimulant that can increase your energy and may boost your metabolism.
Will you feel the burn?
Some studies showed that 10 grams of cayenne (and its active ingredient capsaicin) may be effective for influencing weight loss, but it’s almost a sure bet that no diet pill will contain this amount of cayenne. Ten grams of this ingredient would take up a whole pill in and of itself, and even if that was the case you still shouldn’t buy it. The amount of capsaicin in Thermocerin couldn’t be found on their website, so I feel pretty safe in saying that there isn’t enough to do anything to affect your waistline. The other ingredient are pretty decent ingredients, but are also probably not included in the right amounts either.
According to the Thermocerin marketing team, the secret to being able to lose weight is to turn off the fat receptors in your body. First of all: Who says that they can be turned off. It’s not like there is just a little switch that can be flipped by taking a pill and then all of the sudden your body will stop absorbing and storing fat. Yeah right! Thermocerin’s marketers make no attempt to explain this concept and the one scientific study that they cite is a study that was done on green tea. In the study on their website (which is not correctly cited and there is no link to the actual study) it says that people who took a green tea extract three times a day burned 266 calories more than the people who didn’t. 266 calories? Big deal! That small amount of calories is not going to help you lose the kind of weight that Thermocerin claims–there’s just no way.
One bottle of Thermocerin retails for $59, but the website promotes their free trial offer. You only pay shipping and handling for one bottle of this diet pill–but there’s a catch. When you sign up for the free trial, you are also signed up for the Thermocerin VIP Program, meaning that 30 days after your free trial period you will be shipped a three-month supply of Thermocerin and charged $99 plus $6.95 for shipping and handling. While their pricing isn’t bad, the fact that you are automatically signed up to receive more of the product makes us a little uncomfortable.
There is no guarantee spelled out on the Thermocerin website. If you sign up for the free trial and cancel before 25 days you won’t be sent more of the product, but this doesn’t really count as a guarantee. We prefer at least a 60-day guarantee and feel much more confident with a lifetime guarantee.
The jury is still out on whether cayenne will help you effectively lose weight, but because the amount of cayenne in Thermocerin is not disclosed there is no way to know if it contains an effective dose. And with a suspect autoship program and little product guarantee, we advise that you stay away from Thermocerin.
