A diet product’s worth depends on whether it actually helps people lose weight. Let’s find out if Synedrex really works. We needed to learn as much as possible about the ingredients, side effects, clinical support and customer service. We also took a long, hard look at customer experiences. We processed and condensed to give you the info you need.
What You Need to Know
Let’s start with the fact that Synedrex is a “thermogenic” supplement with B vitamins, caffeine, sulbutiamine, yohimbine extract and other ingredients. You can take up to two capsules a day, though you may want to start with one according to the directions. The small container means there’s no trouble taking them on the go.
The start date of Metabolic Nutrition, the company behind Synedrex, is not listed on the official website, but we know the business started online in 1997. That’s quite a while to be on the supplement market. We like that the ingredients are available for the dieter and the BBB rating for several locations is good, but read on…
Side Effects – “Do You Need to Worry?”
The first negative we found with Synedrex was side effects. “No dieter wants to feel shaky and jittery after taking a product,” says our Research Editor. “You can have increased energy and metabolism without the problems.”
As one dieter puts it, “The side effects while on it included excessive sweating, inability to regulate body temperature, jitters, dizziness, and insomnia.”
Another user reports even more Synedrex side effects, ”Omg! This stuff is crazy! It worked the first two days, which is why I gave it one star. After that, I have never felt so bad in my life! My heart was racing, but I was exhausted. I was nauseous beyond belief. The room was spinning. I drank a ton of water, and I believe I was still dehydrated.”

Chest Pain – “Frequent Complaint”
Chest pain is a side effect, but in the case of Synedrex ingredients, there are more than a few reports of this specific issue. “You sweat so much but it give me chest pain and a lot of anxiety and some crazy thoughts too,” a user reports.
Another dieter with the same problem says, ”This product made me start having chest pain. Even after I stopped taking them I still had pain for a week and a half.”
“OMG! I’m having the same side effects such as mucus in my stool, slight chest pain that lingers, and dull headaches,” we also read.
You only need one negative, like chest pain, to ruin your chance of long-term weight-loss success. In the case of Synedrex, if the side effects are as harsh as dieters report, that’s a bad sign.
The Science – “Is There Proof?”
We visited the Science Center portion of the Metabolic Nutrition website to see if there was any support for the weight-loss product. We found articles about supplements and exercise, but no research. The most important parts are caffeine and yohimbe, two stimulants. We know these ingredients boost energy and promote a stronger metabolism, but too much can do more harm than good. Based on the side effects there may be too much in. At DietSpotlight, we need proven facts to support claims. If there’s none out there, or if the formula may cause issues, that’s not a good sign.
The Bottom Line – Does Synedrex Work?
Yeah, so what’s our final take on this one? The business has been around for 20 years and some dieters do report positive results, but we feel uncomfortable giving our support because of the lack of clinical support and potential for side effects. Plus, it bothers us that the bottle only contains 22.5 servings.
If the time has come to shed off the extra weight, our suggestion is to find a supplement that contains clinically supported ingredients, with no known side effects offered at a price you can afford.
Among the best products we’ve found in 2015 is one called Leptigen. The ingredients are a proprietary blend with published scientific research to spur metabolism and boost fat loss. Dieter’s aren’t talking about negative side effects and users report seeing great results.
Also, the company that makes Leptigen is so confident in the formula they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which we like.
