Phenamax Review - Does This Fat Burner Actually Work?
We’re all searching for the right diet product. We took the time to create a comprehensive review, focusing closely on the ingredients, side effects, customer-service quality, and scientific studies. Then we dug through user comments from all over the internet. Finally, we summarized what we found to give you the bottom line.
What is Phenamax?
To begin with, Phenamax is a weight-loss supplement. The ingredients include citrin, yerba mate bark, green tea leaf extract, guarana seed, white willow bark, cha de burge, hordenine, and Forslean. It’s supposed to improve appetite control and burn fat.
It is unclear what company manufactures Phenamax, but we know it is distributed by EyeFive. It looks like a fulfillment center. While the product is available at online retailers, very little information about it is out there. We do like that some of the ingredients have clinical support, but read on…
Limited Information – “Who Makes It?”
Our first concern is the overwhelming lack of available information regarding the product itself and the company that makes it. It is difficult to ascertain safety and efficacy without more details. According to our Research Editor, “When information on a business is missing and there’s no official website, that’s a big red flag.”
This was especially troublesome to some dieters. One said, “I like to check the sustainability of the ingredients used in my herbal supplements. If I can’t then I’m going to pass on the product.”
Another explained, “It’s important to me that products are made in the United States where there are better safety procedures in place.”
Others were less concerned about these sorts of details. One reviewer said, “I need a product that works. I don’t really care where it is made or how easily I can look up information online.”
Another happy dieter said, “It worked well for me with minimal side effects. That’s all that really matters.”
Customer Service – “What if I Have Questions?”
Customer service is an often overlooked component when evaluating product quality. When a customer has a concern or question about Phenamax it is important they be able to quickly and easily reach someone who can help.
One worried consumer remarked, “I just wanted to find out if it was safe to take with my medications before I bought it but I couldn’t find anyone to ask.”
Another said, “My doctor had questions about one of the ingredients and said I should stop taking it until I could get an answer.”
Others are less concerned with the ability to talk to someone. One said, “If it doesn’t work for whatever reason I don’t need to talk to someone. I’m not going to jump through hoops to get a refund and I don’t like talking to barely trained reps.”
Another reviewer explained, “If I like the product I’m not going to need to talk to customer service and if I don’t like it, I don’t want to waste my time being told why I should.”
According to our research, easy access to information and quality customer service make a huge difference in long-term results. If Phenamax doesn’t have strong company support and there’s no detailed information out there, that could cause trust issues.
The Science – “Any Clinical Backing?”
At DietSpotlight, we like the products we recommend be backed by quality scientific research. Though we found no research into Phenamax, in particular, there is some on green tea, guarana, and yerba mate. However, you have to consider that these ingredients are literally found in hundreds of formulas.
The Bottom Line – Does Phenamax Work?
Should I race out for a bottle of Phenamax? Some of the ingredients do have the support of individual scientific studies that we are independently aware of. However, there is no proof that the quality or quantity of these needed are present in sufficient amounts to produce the desired results. This is one of the reasons we are hesitant to give it our support.
If you are ready to lose weight we suggest choosing a supplement made of ingredients which are backed by scientific research. A good manufacturer will make the information about their product readily available to the public and will provide high quality customer service.
Among the best products we’ve seen this year is named called Leptigen. It is made of four key ingredients, which have been shown in documented clinical research to help boost metabolism and kick-start fat loss. We didn’t find any negative user reviews online, and customer responses around the web reveal people are seeing great results.
The manufacturers of Leptigen are so sure about their product that they are now offering a Special Trial Offer, which we find reassuring.
Previous Phenamax Review (Updated December 12, 2008):
What You Should KnowThere is an official website for the weight loss supplement Phenamax. The manufacturers claim that customers who have already used Phenamax have lost 10- 25 1bs in the first month of taking this product. The manufacturer also claims that adequate weight loss is normally achieved after taking Phenamax for a period of three to five months. One of the main active ingredients in Phenamax is Green Tea Extract. Anyone who knows anything about weight loss supplements knows that Green Tea Extract is one of the most popular ingredients in weight loss supplements on the market today due to the fact that it is said to increase the metabolic rate of the body. Of course due to the fact that the market is flooded with weight loss products which include Green Tea Extract as a major active ingredient, manufacturers really do need to work hard to distinguish their product from other similar weight loss products on the market.
IngredientsAs well as containing Green Tea Extract, Phenamax also contains Yerba Mate, Guarana, Che de Burge and Citrin. A number of these ingredients produce effects similar to caffeine and so you may want to reduce your coffee intake if you do decide to try Phenamax.
