What You Should Know
Phenterex is a weight loss supplement promoted with television commercials. The “As Seen on TV” product claims anyone can reshape their body with the ingredients in the supplement. The official website offers plenty of weight loss claims, but there is no clinical research backing these claims. There are a few proven weight loss ingredients commonly used in supplements, but we are certain these ingredients are not used in Phenterex. There are reviews on the official website, but before and after photos are not included with the reviews. Dieters have no idea if the reviews are real or just brief statements written by the company selling the diet supplement.
List of Ingredients
DiCaffeine Malate, Chocamine, Mango Seed Extract, Phenylethylamine, Synephrine and Humulus Lupus.
The first ingredient in Phenterex is dicaffeine malate – 200 mg. Dicaffeine malate is just another name for caffeine. Packing 200 mg of caffeine into one weight loss supplement will cause side effects for the average dieter. Over the counter “Stay Awake” pills contain 200 mg of caffeine. Dieters that are sensitive to caffeine should not take this product as the minimum dose is one capsule and one capsule contains 200 mg of caffeine. Side effects may include increased heart rate, increased blood pressure and shakes. Synephrine is also a stimulant, so the effects of caffeine are exemplified with a second stimulant. Synephrine is marketed as the cousin to Ephedra, but it is not proven to increase weight loss through the same processes as Ephedra.
Phenylethylamine is another unsafe diet ingredient. This ingredient alters mood. While many mood altering prescription drugs are used for weight loss purposes, these are prescribed by a physician to a patient with on-going care. Phenylethylamine is especially dangerous for patients with mental disorders like depression, bipolar disorder, manic depression, anxiety and panic disorder.
The remaining ingredients offer little weight loss support. Phenterex sells for $50 a bottle. Each bottle contains 60 capsules or a one month supply. Dieters consume 400 mg of caffeine per day on this supplement. It is important when taking caffeine supplements to limit caffeine intake from other sources like food and drink. Adding more caffeine will not increase weight loss, but it could increase negative side effects.

Phenterex is not a safe diet supplement for most dieters. The huge serving of caffeine is enough to leave the dieter nauseous and shaky for the entire day. Some dieters may experience racing heart rate and insomnia as a result of taking this supplement.
