What You Should Know
Every dieter wants to find a supplement that offers optimal weight loss and dieting support. Pharmanex Overdrive is designed to increase athletic performance in the gym and on the field. Dieters working out regularly could use the supplement to support performance during exercise or as a general supplement for dieting support. We easily found an ingredient list for Pharmanex Overdrive but there are no clinical trials listed supporting claims of improved athletic performance.
List of Ingredients
Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Vitamin B12, Pantothenic Acid, Magnesium, Selenium, Chromium, Bromelain, Papain, Citrus Bioflavonoids, ReSalt Powder, n-Acetyl Cysteine, Quercetin and Grape Seed Extract.
According to the product description, the dieter is supposed to take the supplement about one hour before working out. The main function of the supplement is energy and antioxidant support. Energy support is provided with B vitamins. B vitamins offers immediate energy support, but that support will only last a short while. B vitamins are not stored in the body so the dieter must take supplements with B vitamins for energy multiple times a day.
Antioxidant support is important for dieters who exercise on a regular basis. Exercise causes an increased need for water. The body turns oxygen into water. During this process, free radicals are released into the cell. Some free radical escape and take over healthy cells to reproduce. Typically, the human body produces enough antioxidants to fight off free radicals, but exercise can cause an imbalance between free radicals, or oxidants and antioxidants. Supplementing antioxidants helps maintain a healthy balance.

There are thousands of weight loss and dietary supplements on the market. The dieter can pick and choose the right individual ingredients for weight loss or choose a supplement formulated with multiple ingredients. The idea is to find a formula with proven ingredients and clinical studies supporting weight loss and performance claims. Pharmanex Overdrive does not list clinical support. The dieter may wish to choose a supplement designed for weight loss and appetite control instead of a supplement designed to improve athletic performance.
The most efficient ingredients for weight loss include green tea, chromium and caffeine. Overdrive does not contain any of these ingredients. Most of the ingredients in the supplement are also available in a daily multi-vitamin.
