What You Should Know
Dexaprine is an extreme fat burner from iForce Nutrition. The product description reads like most bodybuilding supplement descriptions. There are graphs and big words combined with creative language and a clear push to try the supplement because you’ve never felt anything like this in your life. THIS is the supplement you’ve been looking for, according to iForce Nutrition. We agree, if you’ve been looking for a supplement to increase blood pressure, cause heart palpitations and cause you to feel nauseous due to caffeine overload.
List of Ingredients
- Citrus Aurantium
- 1, 3 Dimethylamylamine
- Caffeine Anhydrous
- Green Tea Extract
- 3, 3′ Diiodo L Thyronine
- 3, 5 Diiodo L Thyronine
Citrus aurantium is a source of synephrine commonly added to fat burners that once contained ephedra. When ephedra was pulled from the market, synephrine stepped in claiming it could give the dieter all the same positive benefits without the negative side effects. Synephrine has never been proven to have the same benefits as ephedra, but it does carry some of the same side effects.
1, 3 dimethylamylamine is associated with heart palpitations. Simply put, dieters should not take this ingredient unless they have the okay from their doctor. Patients with kidney disease, liver disease, heart disease, diabetes and a huge list of other medical conditions, should not take 1, 3 dimethylamylamine.
Caffeine anhydrous is powdered caffeine. It will increase energy and decrease hunger while promoting a healthy metabolism. But, in large quantities caffeine can cause negative symptoms similar to a heart attack.
Green tea extract is another proven ingredient. We can’t give Dexaprine credit for including green tea because they don’t bother to list how much is in the formula.
The remaining two ingredients are supposed to support thyroid function and increase fat metabolization. There are some clinical studies supporting these claims, but they are only available in animal studies, particularly mice.
- Ingredients are listed online.
- Contains two proven ingredients – green tea and caffeine.
- Contains dangerous ingredients that may cause negative side effects.
- Dexaprine is not the safest fat burner.
- Not safe for dieters with health conditions or those taking prescription medications.
Dexaprine may have a great website with tons of scientific graphs and literature, but that does not change the fact that the ingredient list is not packed with the best ingredients on the market. How much caffeine is in the supplement? How much green tea does the company include? Why is a stimulant included that causes heart palpitations? When a dieter has more questions than answers it’s time to choose another supplement.
