What You Should Know

Triadalean is a weight loss supplement from Covaxil Laboratories. The official website for the supplement offers no real information at all. We find tons of claims, but these claims are not associated with an ingredient list. It’s like the company expects the dieter to read through the description and say OK, I’ll take a chance. With all the dangerous ingredients out there today and all the product scams, there is no way the dieter is going to make that choice.

The official website for Triadalean also fails to provide links to any of the clinical support mentioned in the brief description. We found it extremely interesting to see a phrase on the box about the STACK. This refers to the ECA stack that was once so popular when ephedra was legal. Today, ECA is not legal, so there is no STACK in Triadalean.

List of Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • Caffeine
  • Citrus (Bitter Orange) Fruit Extract
  • Guarana Extract
  • Phenylethylamine Phenylethan-2-Amine
  • Phenylethylamine Methylbenzylamine
  • Phenylethylamine 1-Phenylethylamine
  • Theobromine Extract
  • Niacin

Product Features

When we did not find the complete ingredient list on the Triadalean website, we went in search of the list. Finally, we found the supplement for sale at GNC for $30 a bottle. GNC lists all the ingredients. There are four stimulants, three mood-boosters and one B vitamin. The B vitamin is added for a very interesting reason.

Caffeine, Bitter Orange, Guarana and Theobromine are all stimulants. Theobromine and guarana are typically standardized for caffeine, but there is no mention of standardization this time around. All ingredients are included in a proprietary blend containing 945 mg. The breakdown of each ingredient is not listed.

The three mood-altering ingredients are all phenylethylamines or derivatives of phenylethylamines. These ingredients are dangerous for people taking antidepressants and other mood-altering prescription medications. We found several warnings in this regard, including warnings on medical websites. At no time should a dieter with bipolar disorder take any supplement with phenylethylamine.

The final ingredient, Niacin, is added to make the dieter feel flush. That flush feeling is commonly used to make the dieter feel like the supplement is working.

Advantages

  • All ingredients are listed online.
  • The supplement contains one proven ingredient.

Disadvantages

  • Contains multiple stimulants.
  • Contains mood altering ingredients.

Conclusion

We are not fond of the proprietary blend that Triadalean uses. We’d like to know just how much of the 945 mg is stimulant and how much is the remaining five ingredients. There is a warning associated with using the supplement that dieters should heed. The warning states that there is 250 mg of xanthine mixture. Again, we have no idea what that means – caffeine is a xanthine, but it is not the only xanthine in the formula.

    I started this supplement about two weeks ago. So far I have lost 15 lbs but the recommended dose of two capsules in the morning and two again with main meal did make me excessively nauseous. So I brought it down to one per day so I could still eat. It does alter mood a bit. For me it made it better. As a person with depression and lack of motivation I was able to start getting things done and had more energy for things I enjoyed. This may not be the case for someone else who is already anxious or agitated frequently. So I hope that people will start of easy with this drug and see where it takes them

    Okay, so I purchased a bottle yesterday. I took two in the morning without a meal and two in the evening with a meal. That morning, after taking two I ran for two miles as I’m training for the 5k. I thought I was going to pass out, but I made it. Throughout the day, I felt and heard stomach growling but I didn’t eat that much. The evening, I took two with my meal, and I was so full I did not finish. I eat healthy, exercise every day. My goal is to loose 30 pounds and was looking for something to help speed up the process. I’m not sure how it’s workinh so far. My heart did beat fsst, and I had a lot of energy. Today, is day 2, so I will keep going until I finish the bottle. I will check back in, in 15days.

    Triadalene is the only pill I’ve found to help control my appetite and give me energy without a crash! I have recommended it to everyone who has asked me what I took to lose 40 lbs. Love this product. I did plateau after that. I didn’t exercise or change my eating habits. It made me full

    I really like Triadalean. I have ADD and to be honest I was looking for something over the counter that would help me with attention. When I first started taking this it gave me energy for about 20 mins and then I felt completely drained. After taking it for about a week by appetite has decreased, my focus has improved in addition to my mood and motivation.

    I actually bought this over the OTC Fastin. CVS had a sale, so I thought let’s give it a go. I’m a late night person and took it about 5pm on an empty stomach. Oh boy was I flying on one pill. Ripped up the whole front garden for winter and was a sweating mess. And my mood was great! I also have bipolar one. Next day I took it with food and a 20oz coffee, no jitters or anything…just a good mood and energy. Yes, I felt as if I didn’t need to eat as much, but I know you need to eat to lose weight. Just don’t forget that!

    I’ve been taking this pill to help with my appetite. I’ve had no side effects Thank the Lord and I have lost about 15lbs. Mind you this is with watching what I eat, excersize and this pill. Been on it for about 3 months. I’m 100% happy.

    All in all I really liked these pills because they were a great addition to my diet and exercise. When I first started taking them my heart would beat rapidly and I would get dizzy at times. The worst part was having trouble getting to sleep at night. After a few weeks the dizziness went away but the pills made me VERY VERY drained and sleepy. I would drink nearly a pot of coffee and STILL not have enough energy. One night I got to the gym and had absolutely no motivation whatsoever to complete my workout. That’s when I decided to stop taking them. At first they were okay but I can’t handle the exhaustion in my fast paced life.

    Hope this helps :)

    I’m on my 2nd day of pills. It did increase my energy and decrease my appetite and while my heart is beating faster its no faster than if I drank a large redbull. My only concern is the mood swings. It doesn’t effect me like Adderall but I actually have ADD and took it in the 90′s when no one knew what amount to really prescribe. Adderall just made me anti-socail THIS stuff made me freaking crazy. I felt depressed all morning and about an hour ago I just broke down for no reason. I bawled for a 1/2 hour for no reason. I’m sure this works but for me it’s not worth it.
    Diet and exersize that’s what I’m sticking to now. (btw if you do want to still buy these pills they were selling them for $20 at walmart)

    I have been taking thid product for a week to round out my weight loss efforts. It has curbed out my appetite. I feel more energy, but not anxious or jittery, which many stimulants have done to me before; luckily not this time. I did experience a very mild headache for 2 days but it went away. So for, I have been satisfied with how Triadalean has been affecting me. I have seen an improvement in my mood and motivation.

    I hope u didn’t take any of those pills because it sounds like. They. Were tampered.with or messed up in the factory. I’ve bought over 10 bottles. So far another pills look all uniform. Purple and white. Return. Bottle and get a new one.sorry if this is too little too late but it’s my first time on this site and I just had to answer your question.

    Do NOT mess around with these pills unless you are ready to deal with the side effects. I tried them for two days and could barely function due to extreme upset stomach, dizziness and rapid heart rate. The box says to consult a doctor before use. I did not. Do yourself a favor and dont repeat my mistake. Check it out thoroughly before you buy it. I do hope it works better for others than it did me.

    I’m bipolar but I choose to cope with no medications aside from a sedative (Trazodone) to sleep at night, is it still unsafe for me or just with any other medications? Does Trazadone effect it any way?

    If you are bipolar, I would not take this at all. As far as drig interactions, I am not a doctor and unawate of ibteractions, but due to the nature of the stimulants, I believe it would cause rapid cycling in individuals with bipolar disorder.

    I just bought this pill and began taking 2 at 8:00 am and 2 at 11:00 am. Right away I noticed major changes. First, my heart beat feels different, I feel really anxious (especially when I’m sitting down), have an upset stomach (like I have diarrhea but I really don’t), and I could NOT fall asleep. The whole night my mind was on alert and id occassionally fall into these 5 minute trances…This is the end of my second day. I have noticed a decrease in my appetite and it seems I’ve lost 2 pounds, but who knows, it could be water weight. One more thing: I have not been able to exercise while on these. Yesterday I went to my birkham yoga class and almost passed out (shortness of breathe, etc) and today I tried running on the treadmill and again (shortness of breathe). I want to
    Stay on them and see what happens, but I’m not trying to make myself feel like crap everyday. Does anyone have any comments or advice on this? Thank you!! :)

    I need something to curb my appite to help me loose 10-12 lbs before
    I have a much needed hip replacement surgery within this next year. I’m hoping for a little more weight loss but just 10lbs would be awesome. I do exercise as much as possible without aggravating my right lower side. I can’t do much walking anymore,other than everyday getting around. No more power walks like I used to do to keep my weight in check.

    I just started taking these yesterday. I loved the boost it gave me at work. I slept last night but not well. The feeling of impending doom you mentioned is the mood enhancers. Mood enhancers do different things to different people depending on your chemical levels (i.e dopemine, serotonin, valproic acid(?) I know this is not what the chemical is called but if really low or really high it can cause chemical bipolar disorder) Also if you have undiagnosed ADD or ADHD which a lot of people do. I am 38 and when I was a kid there was no such thing as ADD or ADHD at least not as readily talked about as it is today. I was in a great mood all last night, probably due to this product. I would take it for that alone. I deal with a lot of stress and have a lot of belly fat as a result. I exercise moderately and eat like a bird yet I still have a lot of extra midsection weight because of stress. Im hoping this product will help. Ill check back in a week and let ya know :)

    I’ve been on the pills for about six days and I have lost six pounds. It completely diminished my appetite, but gave me a serious upset stomach when( like another person said) I wasn’t active . It gave me incredible energy, but even when only taken once a day in the morning, I still had insomnia. I can feel them working. But tonight I have this crazy feeling of impending doom. This feeling is scaring me and I have decided to stop using the pills. There’s no doubt that the pills work, but the side effects have pressured me to try the old diet ad exercise again.

    I have tried these pills, taking two at a time did increase my energy, but also gave me the shakes and made me nauseous. If I stayed busy the side effects went down, but the moment I was idol I would feel sick. I started to take one and I am able to cope with that. I don’t drink coffee or tea so this gives me that extra boost in the morning.

    I got them as a legal alternative to adderall. Caffeine supplements and 5 hour energy give me cramps and diarrhea. Adderall doesn’t. Neither does this. I really love them. I am not trying to lose weight, or suppress my appetite per say. I needed a good boost to keep my energy up and maintain my weight. I accidentally lost 5 pounds taking these. Over the holidays! I ate everythingfrom cheesecake to chocolates. So they work.

    Have there ever been reports of amphetimenes found in triadalean?

    [Reply]

    jennifer

    Of course, caffeine is an amphetamine. They also contain phenylethylamine from 3 sources and theobromine from cocoa. Its the blending that makes magic. Same as adderall. Adderall is a blend of prescription amphetamines and these are over the counter. Each on there owno, not great. Blended makes them powerful.If you have high blood pressure or a very overweight, they might not be safe.

    [Reply]

    Kate

    No, caffeine is NOT an amphetamine. These are NOT like adderall. I’ve been on these for 4 days. So far, they do well with curbing my appetite and right now I’m noticing an edge in my energy, as if I want to go exercise. Cheers.

    I have been taking these for 2 months 2 pills a day they give me energy where I didnt have any before they curb my appetite they dont make me feel shaky or anything and I went from 250 lbs to 210 in less then two month and down almost 3 sizes the one thing I can say is its nice to have energy and not drag all the time and for someone that feels like alls they can do is sleep and not feel like doing anything this has been an amazing help so its nothing like speed

    I’ll let you know when my boyfriend gets home in a week and a 1/2 lol . I’m on day two. I only take two in the morning, that’s enough to keep get my energy up, and not keep me up all night. I’m usually exhausted all day so , the energy was great, I also had a good mood, I am ADHD and it hasn’t affected my mood yet, i eat like the guy off that show Man vs. Food but so far my appetite has been less than usual, I still make it a point to eat three meals a day , eating no later than 8 and I am going to try to eat smaller portions, and make better food choices. I have been drinking more water and I take a multivitamin in the morning, and take a fiber pill with lunch , and though I haven’t exercised in years I think with this new energy boost I will try to start doing some. I think the combo of eating better(more fiber filled/protein rich veggies/meats) , drinking more water, fiber pills and the citrus extract in the triadalean will help with my weight loss because i will feel fuller throughout the day, and the caffeine and what not in the triadalean along with my vitamins, will help me keep my energy levels up…which has motivated me to be active. Both should help with weight management

    I tried this product recently. I took 2 pills Friday morning, as instructed in the directions. Instead of giving me an energy boost, it did quite the opposite! It drained every last ounce of energy out of me. I was worthless the rest of Friday & all of Saturday. I have never felt that horrible from a pill. I didn’t eat much, but I’m not so sure it was due to the pills curbing my appetite or because I just didn’t have the energy to eat. I would not recommend this product to anyone!

    [Reply]

    jennifer

    Honestly, that sounds like a backed up colon. Unless you have add or adht, stimulants should never do that. If that exhaustion was followed by multiple bowel movements, you know that’s what was happening. The pills probably made it catch up with you quicker. I’d try them again if you experienced what I described.
