What You Should Know
Phenedrine is produced by a South African company known as Biogen. There is an official website for the products manufactured by Biogen. The site refers to this weight loss supplement as both Phenedrine and Phenadrine, which may cause a little confusion. Some of the main active ingredients in Phenedrine include Green Tea Extract and Citrus Aurantium. Citrus Aurantium was thought at one time to be a safe alternative to the now banned Ephedrine. However, some experts are warning that Citrus Aurantium may not be as safe as manufacturers of weight loss products thought and that it can increase the risk of a stroke or heart attack in the same manner as the banned stimulant that it is intended to replace.
The ingredients in Phenedrine include, White Willow Bark, Citrus Aurantium, Octopamine HCL, Green Tea Extract, Yerba Maté, L-Tyrosine, Caffeine, Pathothenic Acid, Vitamin B5 and Vitamin B6.
If you live in the United States or Europe, you will find it difficult to purchase Phenedrine as it is only available for sale in pharmacies in South Africa. The official website tells us that you should take 4 capsules of Phenedrine, two to three times per day with water for five days, and then leave two days before taking the next dose. The website advises users to continue like this, following the pill regimen for five days and then taking two days off.
White Willow Bark is one of the ingredients in Phenedrine, and you should therefore not take Phenedrine if you are taking aspirin or any other kind of blood thinning drug. Also, as a result of the risks associated with Citrus Aurantium which is present in Phenedrine, it is not suitable for anyone who has any kind of blood pressure or heart problem. In fact anyone with a medical problem should seek their physician’s advice before they take Phenedrine.

- It does not contain Ephedrine.
- Phenedrine can only be purchased in pharmacies in South Africa.
- As a result of the risks associated with Citrus Aurantium, which is present in Phenedrine, it is not suitable for those with any kind of heart or blood pressure problem.

Of course, for those reading this who happen to live in the United States or Europe, one of the main disadvantages if you would like to try Phenedrine is that it is only available in pharmacies in South Africa. Unless you know someone in South Africa who can purchase this product on your behalf you will find it difficult to purchase Phenedrine. At the end of the day, the ingredients in Phenedrine can be found in a whole host of other weight loss products currently on the market, and there is no evidence that Phenedrine achieves superior results to these other products. Certainly not enough to recommend going to great lengths to obtain it.
