Zantrex-3 Review

 width=Zantrex-3 is marketed as a ‘hardcore’ diet pill that will provide ‘rapid weight loss’ and ‘incredible energy’. This caffeine packed pill is sure to provide you with the energy. It actually sounds as though the marketing team for Zantrex-3 took WAY too much of their own product when creating the extremely annoying commercial ad. It essentially yells at you the whole time (I’m not exaggerating, go find it). The ad itself is enough for me to laugh at these folks and walk away. But since this is a review, we’ll try to give you a more complete view of what Zantrex-3 has (or doesn’t have) to offer.


Proprietary Blend (1312 mg)

Yerba Mate, Guarana, Damiana – Studies have shown when these three herbs are combined that it acts as an effective appetite suppressant.

Caffeine – A stimulant, caffeine has been shown to effectively help you lose weight. As a stimulant, however, you should take caution when supplementing with caffeine as it has a number of bad side effects. It is also addictive.

Green Tea – Another effective diet pill ingredient, it has been shown to increase your metabolic rate.

The other ingredients don’t really have much going for them.

Note: It appears that Zantrex-3 has a high load of stimulants (caffeine, guarana, etc.) This is also apparent since they make it look like you can break through brick walls when taking Zantrex-3. As such, we warn against taking such a stimulant-loaded pill. If it is anything like what Zantrex-3 markets it as (which I’m not sure that I’d buy it) then such a pill can’t possibly be healthy.

In addition, they hide it all in a proprietary blend, so we don’t know how much of each ingredient is actually in the pill.

Zantrex-3’s Marketing

Wow. As already mentioned, they use insanely annoying ads that scream “Zantrex-3″ until my ears want to bleed. It just seems to me that they’re trying to load a bunch of kids up with caffeine and make a big doing it. Just my impressions though. Their website itself provides very little information about what the product even is (I had to find the ingredients on a different website).

It appears that the makers of Zantrex-3 is a company called Basic Research (Zoller Labratories). They are also the makers of Leptopril and Leptoprin (which also got horrible reviews). Basic Research has a chequered past, having been fined by the FTC among other things.

Zantrex-3’s Price

$49.00 per bottle.

Zantrex-3’s Guarantee

No guarantee at all. Not a surprise.


If you want to be up all night with the jitters and don’t care much about your health, then go ahead and try Zantrex-3. Otherwise, be smart and look for a diet pill that provides more than just a bunch of caffeine for an expensive price and that yells at you in its commercials.

    I found myself getting very annoyed real easy. I could not stop shaking and there were sometimes were I feared for my health.These pills are very addicting . but hey the best thing was I lost 20lbs. in 1 month fast VERY fast. I would NOT DARE use these pills again. I love my life way too much. I rather stay at the size that I am now.

  2. Ken Cooper's Review

    I have been taking two Zantrex-3 pills per day now for twelve weeks and have not lost any weight which ranges from 197 to 199 lbs before and since starting the pills. I am 6’1″ tall, and the “fat” is in my waist area. I am on the “cusp” of my jean/clothing size and refuse to trash all of it and go into a larger size. That is my incentive to lose weight down to about 189 lbs. or more. The one thing I have not done is take the pills 30 min. or so before eating. Nor do I take more than two per day. That could be my problem if taking Zantrex-3 (or any other diet pill) shortly before eating is a critical requirement in order for the pills to be effective. If this is the case, I do not find this stated anywhere for any diet pill that to be effective it MUST be taken 30 to 60 min. prior to each meal. Nor, do I have a set time during the day for eating, nor is it the same number of times per day…..mostly small snackes and one main meal. If diet pills really work, it would be critical for the sources to be detailed in the method required for them to be effective; otherwise, I could be using a bottle of 60 every week just to maintain two before “each meal”…..As such, two per day each morning is not working for me. especially when I never know 30 to 60 min. before that I plan on snacking, or eating a serious meal, or if I am even suppose to take diet pills every time I eat anything regardles of the amount.

  3. Annie's Review

    To be honest I was happy with Zantrex-3 mostly because my number one reason for taking it was I was often too tierd to workout! I felt it gave me loads of energy but I only took 2 pills before my workout not the recommended 6 a day. . . . Which may have killed me. I stopped taking it because I noticed I was getting addicted to the “energy high” and it was definitly not healthy.

  4. Emma Tuitubou's Review

    I tried zantrex 3 yrs ago and it worked. I lost 5lbs the first week and it was the reason I kept trying it. I started out with the 2 in the am, and 2 in the pm for about 3 days and realized that may be too much for me because my heartrate was probably a little too fast. The energy boost was great for me! I took 1 in the am and 1 in the pm and it worked well for me. I went from 198 lbs to 160 lbs in 2 months.
