What You Should Know
Apidextra is a weight loss supplement created from several patented ingredients. These ingredients are not necessarily more effective than the individual ingredients they represent; they just have a fancy name. The official website for Apidextra reads like a prescription medication website. There is even a doctor pictured on the front page. The words “scientifically” and “clinically” are used to convince the dieter the formula will increase weight loss.
List of Ingredients
Chromax (chromium), Glucomannan (fiber), Super Citrimax (hydroxycitric acid), Cissus Quadrangularis, Green Tea, African Mango, Caffeine Anhydrous, Fucoxanthin.
Chromax, or chromium, is used to combat hunger and control blood glucose levels. Between meals, blood glucose can fall rapidly causing cravings for sweet foods. Chromium helps fight those cravings. Glucomannan is a water-soluble form of fiber. When taken before a meal, fiber slows the digestive process allowing food to stay in the stomach longer. If food is not digested, hunger does not return. Glucomannan is commonly used as an appetite suppressant.
Super Citrimax is hydroxycitric acid or Garcinia cambogia. This ingredient may be linked to potential liver problems. While there is no clinical proof of the connection, at least one supplement manufacturer pulled products from the shelf to take out all HCA and replace it with other natural ingredients due to claims of liver damage. The FDA oversaw the pull.
Green tea and caffeine are two additional proven ingredients. Green tea has been clinically tested as a fat burner and for general health. Caffeine anhydrous is powdered caffeine. We don’t know how much caffeine is in this supplement. Too much could cause negative side effects like jitters and shakes. We like the fact that three of our favorite ingredients are included in this supplement, but the other ingredients leave the supplement off the “must-have” list.
Testimonials are included on the official website. No before pictures are posted, but there is a picture with each of the testimonials. A 100% money-back guarantee is posted on the website. If the bottle is returned within a 90-day period, the dieter will receive a refund less shipping and handling. The cost of one bottle is $49.95.

We are skeptical about supplements that include any form of Garcinia cambogia. Though no clinical evidence has been published to support claims of liver damage, big companies do not pull complete product lines and shut down websites just because they want to. We would not suggest trying this supplement.
