What You Should Know
From the first moment we landed on the Adiphene website we were worried about the supplement. The bottle lists RDK Pharm as the manufacturer, which could confuse dieters into thinking the supplement is a prescription medication. There is also a ton of information on the front page; a characteristic of fly-by-night supplement that aim to give the dieter so much information they are fooled into trying the supplement without ever checking if the information is accurate. The final indication that something is just not right was the large number of misspelled words on the site. Common ingredients are not spelled correctly – a huge indication the site is not from a professional company.

We love it when companies attempt to support the ingredients they’ve chosen for a weight loss supplement with clinical studies, but not all companies know exactly what they are looking for when choosing studies.
Adiphene’s ingredient list page is packed with clinical studies. Some are from more than 10 years ago, which means the results are irrelevant at this time. Then the company tried to throw in a bunch of mice and rat studies. The metabolism of mice and rats is not equivalent to humans. These studies are also irrelevant if no additional human studies have been completed to support the animal study results. Finally, we found clinical studies on formulas – not individual ingredients. The formulas contained at least one of the ingredients found in Adiphene, but not all ingredients. This, again, renders the study irrelevant.
The ingredient list for Adiphene is not the best, but there are some bright lights in the formula. Chromium, cinnamon, cayenne, glucomannan and ginger root are all safe and relatively effective in their given category. Chromium is an appetite suppressant. Cinnamon and cayenne may boost metabolism and glucomannan is a water-soluble fiber that may prevent hunger. Ginger root eases stomach discomfort and supports digestion.
- All ingredients are listed on the official website.
- Some of the ingredients are safe and relatively effective.
- Clinical studies on the Adiphene website do not support the ingredients in Adiphene or supplement claims.
- Biter orange is associated with negative side effects.
Adiphene screamed a warning from the front page of the website. There is something familiar about the look and feel of the site that we’ve felt many times before. The product offers dieters more information than they need and most of that information reads like a sales pitch rather than informative dialog the dieter can use to make an educated decision.
