We look into Avaprex to find out if it works or whether it is a scam.
- Should be safe
- No auto ship programme
- Inadequate feedback
- Ingredients in ineffective dosage quantities
- May not work in the way as described
- US diet pill manufactured by Innervital
- Advertised as “seen on TV”
- 4 supplements in the Avaprex range
Avaprex is a American diet pill supplement that’s advertised as “seen on TV”. It contains natural ingredients that may help you lose weight. Including raspberry ketone, green tea and caffeine it may help increase your metabolism and may help you burn off fat. It looks safe and there do not seem to be any particular health issues. Customers are encouraged to sign up for the 30-day challenge and find out for themselves.
Avaprex contains four key ingredients: Raspberry ketone, Green tea and caffeine as well as a proprietary blend containing cider vinegar, grapefruit powder, kelp, African mango, Acai and Revesterol.
All contents are derived from natural ingredients and they may offer some health benefits. However, the small size of the daily dose makes this extremely unlikely to have much of an effect. For example, 100mgs of caffeine, the contents of the diet pill is only the caffeine content of an average cup of espresso coffee and hardly seems worth taking by pill.
An additional problem with Avaprex is that there is very little information available about just how and when to take the supplement or how it actually works. Clinical evidence is lacking and the advertising does not include any advice about when to take the pill although it is mentioned that you only take one pill a day.
There is no dietary information either or information about a recommended diet, drinking water or whether you should take Avaprex before or after a main meal or breakfast. Avaprex contains caffeine so we suggest you take it earlier in the day rather than too close to bedtime.
To add to the confusion, Avaprex is sold as part of a range of other products that can be used in combination to increase the weight loss effect. However there is zero information about these other products and Avaprex, the leading supplement in the range is the only one to have any information or ingredients profile, and even this is sadly inadequate.
The range comprise of:
- Herbal Cleanse
- Mega EPH / DHA
Avaprex do not publish any detailed company information or details. There is a contact phone number that you can call toll free on 800-892-9580. You can also contact them by the live chat button although when asked about the guarantee it suddenly did not work!
Avaprex are associated with Innervital a company specialising in health products and the supplement is also available from this website. It is unclear but appears that Innervital are the parent company of Avaprex rather than a third party seller.
- We’re not convinced the supplement will work as suggested
- Lack of ingredient profile
- Very little customer feedback
What Does Avaprex Claim To Do?
Avaprex makes some big claims, which they fail to back up with evidence. The four key benefits are that it:
- Burns Fat & Increase Fat Burning Metabolism
- Suppresses Appetite – Eat Less at Each Meal
- Increases Metabolism Boosting Energy
- Increases Thermogenic Body Heat
There are some interesting statements as well. Our favourite is that “Our ingredients are brought to you from the world’s most exotic locations where appetite suppression and fat metabolism is crucial” and we would love to know where that is.
We wanted to create the most aggressive diet pill you can buy and at the same time we wanted to make it safe and affordable for everyone.
This certainly is not the case with Avaprex!
The big problem with the claims is that they do not really match up with the contents. Yes, green tea and caffeine can help boost the metabolism if taken in high quantities and raspberry ketone is a good source of antioxidants but really…”the most aggressive diet pill you can buy” we don’t think so.
So What Is Avaprex and What Are The Ingredients For Avaprex?
Avaprex is a diet pill that is so incredibly average looking it gives average a bad name.
It contains a few ingredients that can be found in most other diet pills and these are present in very weak quantities. It may have a slight effect on your energy levels because of the caffeine and it may help a bit for weight loss if you use it in combination with a diet or exercise regime, but it is highly likely that you will not notice unless you are incredibly sensitive to caffeine.
Each serving contains:
- Raspberry ketone 4% extract (300mg)
- Green Tea 50% extract (200mg)
- Caffeine (anhydrous) (100mg)
- Proprietary blend (600mg)
The proprietary blend contains apple cider vinegar powder, grapefruit powder, kelp, Acai, African mango concentrate and Resveratrol extract. It seems likely that this is an existing product rebranded but the lack of details regarding the contents of the proprietary blend is frustrating.
So What Does All This Mean?
This all adds up to the fact that Avaprex is not very good and it is highly possible you will not even notice the difference between taking it and not taking it.
The product website does not provide much in the way of information and the diet pill itself appears weak and ineffectual. You might do better drinking a few cups of coffee and eating a bowl of raspberries!
Does Avaprex Have Any Side Effects?
Not really. It probably does not have any effect at all but at least it is not dangerous. You should not take any supplements if pregnant or breast-feeding and if you are caffeine sensitive, you should avoid.
Caution: You should avoid or seek medical advice if you are taken any other medication due to the grapefruit content in the propriety formula.
Any Avaprex Reviews From Customers?
Avaprex lacks customer feedback. It is currently on sale on Amazon so this may change if somebody actually buys this supplement and writes a review. Otherwise, there is lack of customer evaluation, which is a matter of concern. Even more worryingly, there are five reviews on the Avaprex website and not even these are much good.
Although it is easy to imagine that this may because Avaprex is so new on the market no one has had a chance to try it out, it appears that this is not the case.
One review on the product website is dated 5th May 2011 and according to the customer, she had received her one bottle of pills but hadn’t started taking it. Despite promising to come back with an update, she never returned. An old neutral review from over two years ago is hardly great advertising although credit to Avaprex who are at least honest with their reviews and publish them.
In fairness, two out of five reviews on the Avaprex website were positive. Two customers reported losing weight with Avaprex and were happy with the diet pills. One said;
LOVE IT, I HAVE LOST 9LBS IN 11 DAYS AND IT IS EASY I HAVE NOT CHANGED WHAT I EAT THE PILLS HELP ME EAT LESS, NOT AS HUNGRY.THANK YOU I’LL BE BACK IN A WEEK TO LET YOU KNOW HOW IT IS GOING
Despite this promising endorsement the customer failed to return with an update , although it is possible the company chose not to use it. This customer comments appear to be around two years old.
So Does Avaprex Work?
It seems highly unlikely it will work despite the positive comment. This diet pill has been around for over two years and during this time, hardly anyone seems to have tried it apart from five people on the website. The contents are fairly weak and ineffectual and we cannot see how they will do much in such small quantities.
There is no clinical proof or evidence that Avaprex will work. However, some of the ingredients have been independently tested.
Raspberry ketone has proved to have a positive effect on weight loss and may reduce
Lipid levels and a fatty liver, according to animal testing.
Green tea helps to induce weight loss in obese or overweight adults and may have many health benefits as well. It is well known as a source of antioxidants and can have an effect upon the metabolism and weight management when taken in sufficient quantities. The NHS also recommend drinking green tea as a possible preventative to illness and mental degeneration although research remains inconclusive.
Where Can I Buy Avaprex?

What About A Guarantee
There is a money back guarantee. All returns must be made within 30 days from the original order date. Shipping fees are non refundable and there will be a small processing charge (not disclosed). Refunds can take 2-3 weeks to process. The refund applies to one open bottle and all others must be sealed.
There is no feedback available regarding the guarantee.
In our opinion, Avaprex does not look very good. It would be unfair to call it a scam but it probably will not be too effective and certainly not in the way that is advertised. There are without doubt a lot of much better supplements on the market. Even some of our rejected products may work better than this.
There are very few real ingredients contained in the diet pill and we feel that this is the major problem with this supplement.
