We look into Abidexin to find out whether this diet pill has something original to offer.
- Website is easy to navigate
- Expensive! 1 bottle may only last 10 days
- Poor customer feedback
- Customer privacy concerns
- Name change for diet pill previously known as Apidexin
- 1 bottle of 60 capsules costs $49.95
- Each bottle lasts from 10 to 30 days!
After a bit of digging we discovered that Abidexin is made by NutriPharm, LLC in the US who appear to own a number of other diet pills. Some of these we have reviewed previously and include; Fexotropin (now discontinued), Appexit (also discontinued), Slimrexin and Metabosyn.
The first thing that strikes you is that it all looks a bit familiar, right down to the name and the type face used on the website and then it hits you. It is identical to Apidexin a better-known diet pill that has been on the market for the last few years.
The two products are identical down to images and text on the websites but after contacting Apidexin, the confusion was quickly cleared up. They are the same diet pill and run by the same company however, the Apidexin name is being phased out because of its similarities in name to Adipex P a pharmaceutical drug.
According to the company, the name led to customer confusion between two very different diet pills. In addition, they were quick to stress that Abidexin is a 100% natural product.
Abidexin contains five key ingredients that are designed to work together to suppress appetite, enhance energy levels and burn fat. These are natural extracts and although the caffeine content may cause side effects if you are sensitive, there does not appear to be anything dangerous or unknown contained in these diet pills.
How to Take Abidexin
According to product information, you should take Abidexin in combination with a healthy diet and exercise.
The recommended dosage is between 1 – 3 diet pills per serving and you are advised to take them no later than 7 hours before bedtime. This is because the caffeine content may cause sleeplessness.
You are advised to take only one capsule each serving until you become accustomed to the effects.
Consumer Notice: Be aware that if you take 3 capsules per day then one bottle will ONLY last 10 DAYS.
Abidexin offers a guarantee and provides contact details. The free phone number is currently 866.917.0541 and valid within the US and there is a “live chat” option too.
The company does not appear to operate an auto ship programme but you do have to register your details in order to pay. Tucked away in the small print you will find that your details may be shared with third party sites, and that your privacy is not guaranteed. Unsubscribing to emails from Abidexin may be difficult because small print information states that you need to opt out of this feature. In the light of internet security, the way that Abidexin deals with their customer privacy issues is worrying.
- Might be expensive if you take maximum dosage – 1 bottle lasting only 10 days
- Lack of positive customer feedback
- One ingredient unapproved by the FDA
What Does Abidexin Claim To Do?
Can You Imagine Burning Fat and Eating Less Food Effortlessly?
The Abidexin website proposes this question and then provides an answer. Yes, you’ve guessed it; you take this diet pill, which is claimed offers three key benefits. According to the advertising Abidexin will help you;
- Eat Less Food
- Reduce Body Fat
- Boost Metabolism
The small numbers do not appear to tie up with anything else on the website but we get the idea that this diet pill contains ingredients that will help achieve these goals.
According to the website:
The Abidexin Research & Development team set out to create the world’s strongest fat burner.
We like this ambition but of course it doesn’t really mean anything and anyone could say it. This statement works for everything, so for example “we set out to create the worlds best cake recipe”, does not mean that Mr Kipling or Sarah Lee have anything to worry about.
The Abidexin Research & Development team sound interesting. It implies that scientists in white coats have been tinkering in the lab with test tubes and formulas and with a strong irony alert, it seems a shame they did not publish their research or their findings. In fact, there are no medical endorsements, explanations or research findings that come from the Abidexin Research & Development Team.
Instead of real information, the Abidexin website focuses on supposedly genuine customer testimonials including plenty of before and after photos of satisfied customers, which look great. This effect is spoiled because some of the images do not appear to be the same people in both photos. Yes, they are thinner, but Kay Charoenwong for example looks completely different facially in her before and after photos.
All customers featured on the website have an Abidexin success story to tell. They used the diet pills. They lost weight. What could possibly be more convincing than that!
So What Is Abidexin and What Are The Ingredients For Abidexin?
Abidexin is a diet pill that aims to reduce the appetite while simultaneously boosting your energy levels and helping your body to burn off fat.
It contains five ingredients.
- Caffeine Anhydrous (210mg): This is the dry powdered form of caffeine. It stimulates the fat burning effect and increases alertness. Caffeine works as a diuretic so it will be important to drink plenty of liquids.
- Green Coffee Bean Extract (200mg): Unroasted or immature coffee beans are green and high in chlorogenic acid – linked to causing a weight loss effect by inhibiting the release of glucose into the blood stream. Glucose is stored by the body as fat. Green coffee bean extract is popular as a diet pill ingredient following exposure by Dr Oz on his TV show.
- Green Select Phytosome Green Tea (150mg): Trademarked green tea extract often included in diet and health supplements. You can buy this ingredient yourself as a health supplement, from various outlets and benefit from increased dosage. In many cases with around 600mg per serving. Green tea is beneficial for health due to its high level of antioxidants and believed to help prevent against cancer. It is also effective for healthy weight loss for the same reason.
- Irvingia Gabonensis (150mg): Also known as African mango seeds. Popular diet pill ingredient derived from a natural plant and believed to increase weight loss due to fibre content. This ingredient has shown some good effects for weight loss when added to diet and studies suggest it may help reduce cholesterol levels. The best results show that Irvingia Gabonensis may work best when taken in its natural form rather than as a supplement.
- CoEnzyme Q10 (50mg): Described as being a “promising weight loss ingredient”, this substance is found naturally and helps convert food into energy. It has not been approved by the FDA as a supplement, which is a matter of concern.
So What Does All This Mean?
Abidexin looks reasonable enough and contains some good ingredients. The diet pill is safe and it may have some effect upon your weight loss if you combine it with a diet and exercise regime. However, it is expensive for what it is. Yes, green tea and coffee is good for weight loss but you could probably achieve the same effects by drinking a cup of coffee (approximately 200mg caffeine per serving) and drinking more green tea.
The effects of Irvingia Gabonensis on weight have not been proven although they look promising and the FDA has not approved one of the ingredients as being suitable for use as a supplement. This is a matter of concern.
Does Abidexin Have Any Side Effects?
The website does not outline any side effects and the supplement looks pretty safe. However, you should avoid if you suffer from a heart condition or have high blood pressure. You may experience caffeine side effects such as jitteriness, tremors, headaches and anxiety and you may need to visit the bathroom due to the potential diuretic effect, also of caffeine.
No side effects are reported.
Caution: Avoid if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. If you have any underlying medical condition or are taking medication, seek advice from your doctor.
Any Abidexin Reviews From Customers?
There are 65 independent customer reviews available for Abidexin on Amazon with a very poor rating of 2.0 out of 5 stars at the time of writing this review.
Some of the reviewers have questioned the authenticity of the some of the positive reviews claiming they are likely to be fake!
A typical unhappy customer comment reported.
Waste of money did everything it says on bottle, didn’t lose any weight what so ever in 1 month. The money I wasted on this I might as well off spent it on a pizza, got the same result.
So Does Abidexin Work?
It might work a bit. Despite the negative review and lack of feedback, the ingredients look OK and you never know….This diet pill is not going to set the world alight though! It is highly possible you will not notice any effect from taking this, especially if you are used to drinking coffee.
Some of the ingredients have performed well during clinical trials so benefits may transfer to the effects of these diet pills. Irvingia Gabonensis may help reduce cholesterol.
Green coffee bean extract reduced fat in mice during clinical testing.
Where Can I Buy Abidexin?
Abidexin is available direct from the product website and you can find it on sale on Amazon as well as some other third party sites. Please note that some sellers are keeping to the old name Apidexin – the same product.
Abidexin costs similar to other supplements with one bottle of 30 diet pills costs $49.95 with savings made on larger orders. Three bottles of Abidexin costs $109. 95 and includes free shipping and three free bottles of Abidexin Cleanse an associated weight loss product.
Consumer Alert: Consumers need to remember that the serving is between 1 – 3 capsules so if you take the maximum dose of Abidexin twice a day as recommended, your month’s supply would only last around 10 days!
What About A Guarantee
To qualify you have to contact the company for a return authorisation number but they offer to refund on one used bottle of Abidexin as well as unopened bottles. The guarantee is good for 90 days.
Abidexin is not the worst diet pill on the market but it has a way to go before it qualifies as being a good product.
One of its major drawbacks is that it does not provide good value for money. This diet pill is expensive and your bottle of pills will probably run out long before the month is over.
Many of the ingredients in this supplement can be found in other more cost effective supplements. And if you drink coffee already you may not notice any effects at all.
It may work a bit but do not expect much from Abidexin or you will be heading for disappointment.
