What You Should Know
Pharmanex is a supplement company that formulates and sells a long list of supplement for everything from general health to weight loss. The Pharmanex Life Pak is a multi-vitamin supplement that offers quite a bit more than the average, over the counter multi. The official website for Pharmanex Life Pak offers a complete ingredient list and a long product description. There are frequently asked questions and several research studies supporting claims in the product description. We are thrilled to find a supplement with such an intricate, detailed description, but the ingredients are not going to boost metabolism as much as proven weight loss ingredients.

The ingredient list for Pharmanex Life Pak contains all the ingredients the dieter would expect from a multi-vitamin. We did find chromium on the list, which is typically used as an appetite suppressant in weight loss supplements. The 100 mcg of chromium is about the average amount in any supplement though some weight loss products include more. Chromium helps regulate blood glucose to prevent cravings. If blood glucose drops below normal, the dieter may feel the need to snack on simple carbohydrates to supply easy energy even if the dieter is not hungry. Chromium helps prevent this reaction.
None of the other ingredients are particularly supportive for the dieter, in terms of weight loss, but dieters should always take a good multi-vitamin to replace any vitamins, minerals or trace metals not consumed through diet. We love the ingredient list for this supplement and clinical research is available to support many of the ingredients.

Dieting means reducing caloric intake and food intake. At times, the dieter may eat enough calories but miss out on the vitamins and minerals they need for optimal health. Pharmanex Life Pak is designed to support overall health. The product description is detailed and even if the dieter does not choose the supplement there are a few things to be learned from the provided description. This supplement provides a complete source of nutritional support.
