Oxydrene Review - Does This Oxygen Booster Really Work? Are lack of ingredient information and athletic concerns deal breakers?
Give me just two minutes and I’ll tell you whether Oxydrene actually works. We looked closely at potential side effects, ingredients, clinical studies and customer service to learn more about it. Then, we sorted through hundreds of comments and reviews, Finally, we summarized it all to give you the facts you need.
What is Oxydrene?
Firstly, this is a supplement that’s supposed to increase oxygen saturation in the user’s blood and tissue. It is also supposed to increase energy, stamina, and endurance. Oxydrene ingredients (if you buy the Elite version) may include rhodiola rosea, cordyceps sinensis powder, coenzyme Q10, schisandra chinensis extract, eleuthero extract, l-arginine alpha-ketoglutarate and gingko biloba.
Oxydrene is made by Novex Biotech, and was made available in Europe prior to being released for sale in the US. We don’t know when it first became available but the business has been at it for more than a decade. We like that the product is available from various retailers and the ingredient list is interesting, but read on…
No Ingredient List – “Tell Us What’s In It!”
The first concern we have is the lack of an Oxydrene ingredient list. “We found what’s in the Elite formula, but nothing on the classic one,” said our Research Editor. “There could be some major changes that are cause for concern.” Whatever’s in it, some users didn’t see the results they wanted.
”It gives me a good boost for my 1st 30-40miles, after that I’m so weak cant even go on a high cadence at 20mph,” said one user.
”Does nothing…Don’t waste your money,” said another reviewer.
Others did not feel this way.
“Within 45 minutes I could notice how much better my breathing was,” was one experience.
Another said, “I love this stuff. I notice such a difference when I take this vs. when I do not.”
Athletic Concerns With Oxydrene – “Not Safe for Competitions”
Because of the fact that this claims to raise your blood oxygen concentration, Oxydrene is not safe for any professional athlete that is subject to World or Olympic Anti-Doping regulations. These rules forbid competing athletes from using any substance to create an increased blood oxygen level.
“We found an information sheet from a trusted retailer that put it plainly,” offers our Research Editor. “Competitive athletes should check with their trainers and governing bodies before using Oxydrene.”
Over the years, we’ve found it takes just one small thing, like lack of detailed information, to scare away potential customers. Why not share the ingredient list for the original formula?
The Science – “Is It There?”
Without a full list of ingredients to research in-depth, we cannot determine if anything in the formula is scientifically tested and proven to meet the claims. There are no studies on the product itself to reference, either. Though, this is common in the supplement market. At DietSpotlight, we want to see science before we can recommend anything.
The Bottom Line – Does Oxydrene Work?
What’s the real deal with Oxydrene? We don’t know, and we wish we did. We were unable to find the ingredients for the original formula and there’s the concern with athletic competition. Both of these leave us with reservations about suggesting it to anyone trying to lose weight.
If you’re ready to lose weight, we suggest using a supplement that contains scientifically tested ingredients, known to support your efforts. For even better results, use it with a regular exercise routine, and a reduced calorie, nutritionally balanced diet.
Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Leptigen. It’s made with a blend of ingredients, shared by the manufacturer, all known for their ability to help boost metabolism and make weight-loss easier compared to using just diet and exercise. Plus, we couldn’t find any mentions of harmful side effects or negative user comments, which tells us users are experiencing great results.
Also, if you’re interested, you can get in on a Special Trial Offer direct from the makers of the product. This is something we like to see.
Previous Oxydrene Review (Updated September 20, 2013):
What You Should KnowOxydrene is one of those multi-purpose diet supplements that makes a lot of claims. Sold in capsule form, Oxydrene's mission is to increase oxygen saturation of the user's tissue and blood. This, the manufacturers claim, will benefit the user's stamina, endurance and overall energy. This means that Oxydrene is marketed towards athletes and body builders, as well as users aiming to lose weight. The ideal Oxydrene user would probably be someone trying to get the most out of an existing exercise routine, or to take their exercise routine to the next level. Oxydrene is manufactured by Novex Biotech, and seems to have been available in Europe prior to being available in the USA. The product comes in capsule form, and the three key active ingredients seem to be herbal. The supplement regimen consists of taking two capsules of Oxydrene in the morning and two in the evening, and these were the amounts used during the company's clinical tests. However, the official product website points out that if users have a "larger frame" then they will likely see better results by taking an extra pair of pills in the middle of the day. Oxydrene is sold via the official product website, and 120 capsules-approximately a one-month supply-retail for $59.99. However, Novex Biotech also offers a "Preferred Customer Plan", which seems to be a subscription service that automatically refills your Oxydrene supply monthly and gets you a discount price of $48.00 for future monthly orders.
List of IngredientsThe three active herbal ingredients found on Oxydrene are: edum crenulata, hippophae, and fructus lychii chinensis. We could not find a full ingredient list.
Product FeaturesOxydrene is an herbal diet supplement that is sold in capsule form. We do know that hipophae is currently used to treat high blood pressure and heart disease. It is also being studied as a red blood cell booster for use after chemotherapy treatments. Unlike many diet supplements that we review, Oxydrene is actually intended as an energy stimulant and a muscle enhancer. The product manufacturers make no real claims regarding the product's effects as a metabolic stimulant, and it seems that it will be most beneficial for helping users get the most out of an exercise routine. Novex Biotech does provide a product disclaimer for professional athletes subject to Olympic or World Anti-Doping regulations, which forbid any artificial increase of an athletes blood oxygen levels. Any athlete competing under these regulations should consult their trainer or doctor before taking Oxydrene.
