Below we take an in-depth look at Phentaslim to see how effective it is at helping with your weight loss goals.
Phentaslim is manufactured by a company called Optimum Nutra Inc. The Phentaslim website starts off with a testimonial from a happy customer who claims to have lost 32 pounds over a period of 5 weeks and extolls the virtues of using Phentaslim to achieve this . This, apparently, can be achieved as the product increases the metabolism, reduces excess body fat, decreases hunger cravings, and increases energy levels. The product also claims to support good mental balance, good concentration and co-ordination.
The product is manufactured in GMP facilities in the USA that have been FDA inspected. The company can be contacted using the information provided on the official website. Optimum Nutra Inc. have a good reputation for customer service, and we were unable to find any customer complaints about the company. We sent an inquiry via the contact regarding some of the ingredients and received a detailed reply back within a couple of hours.
Take three capsules per day. The manufacturers do not state on the website how best to distribute these three capsules, but we suggest taking two with breakfast, and the third capsule either with lunch or about an hour before exercise. Because of the caffeine content, consumers should avoid taking this product in the evening. Customers may also want to start with a lower dosage to assess personal tolerance levels.
The manufacturer of Phentaslim describe the following benefits of the product:
The ingredients used in Phentaslim are listed below. Each daily serving of three capsules contains a total of 1800 mg of the Phentaslim formula. The individual ingredient quantities provided below are per three capsule serving.
Whilst many diet pill manufacturers offer statements and make dramatic claims about how their product works to aid weight loss, very few offer evidence for their claims. The manufacturers of Phentaslim have included numerous links to the clinical trials they have referenced.
Caffeine will increase the metabolism slightly for a period of a few hours after consumption. The caffeine content for each capsule is about the same as a cup of coffee, and so spacing out the doses, taking two with breakfast and one with lunch or before exercise will maximise the energy boost and metabolism boost throughout the day. Theanine may help to counteract some of the potential side effects of caffeine, including jitters. The inclusion of black pepper extract will likely increase the absorption of caffeine, enhancing its effects and the likelihood of side effects.
Green tea and cayenne pepper will both increase thermogenesis in the body, burning more calories in the process. Cayenne pepper may also have a small appetite suppressing effect, although studies suggest that this is small.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Tyrosine are both amino acids, and so can be used by the body to create muscle mass when the consumer is under-taking muscle building exercises.
The vitamins provided in this supplement are of an appropriate level compared to the recommended daily intake. Consumers should not combine this product with other sources of caffeine or other B vitamin supplements.
Whilst some of the ingredients used in Phentaslim can cause side effects in consumers who are very sensitive to caffeine, the dosages are well-balanced to be effective whilst making side effects relatively uncommon.
If you're very sensitive to caffeine then this supplement may not be for you. Consumers unsure if they can tolerant the caffeine could try the recommended advice of starting with 1 capsule per day and avoiding other sources of caffeine such as coffee, tea and energy drinks. This will minimise the chances of side effects occurring.
Each capsule contains a similar amount of caffeine to a cup of coffee.
Consumers who are taking medication should consult their doctor before also more at risk of accidentally overdosing because of the higher absorption rate associated with bioperine, and so should consult with their doctor before taking this product. Theanine may help to counteract some of the potential side effects of caffeine, including jitters.
Always swallow the capsules with water. Do not take if pregnant or nursing. If you have any medical conditions or are taking any medication, consult your doctor before use. Not suitable for anyone suffering from any heart related health issues, including but not limited to high blood pressure. Not suitable for anyone who is sensitive to caffeine and other stimulants.

Numerous customers have left their feedback for Phentaslim here at Diet Pills Watchdog. A selection of these comments are below:
Started taking 1 of these each morning on Wed this week and am down 2 pounds already! Has given me the ability to get out of recliner and be the wife and grandmother Ive always wanted to be! Spotlessly clean house and flowerbeds are weeded. Been to the gym every day since starting these! Has really helped with my hunger and curbed appetite. I pray they continue to help like this! I do get the stomach burning after taking, but a few sips of milk and it goes away!
I received my order in the mail super fast which was awesome. I'm sorry to say I have decided not to take them as I feel too spaced out and jittery on them. I will say though that I’m not a coffee drinker so I think it was due to the caffeine in the pills. I'm not giving a bad review they just aren't for me. Best of luck to everyone!
So after a full two month course on these pills, I am very happy to announce that I have lost two and a half stone in two months! I would recommend these to anyone hoping to get a head start on their weight loss as the extended energy, fuller feeling of stomach and ease of use make these HIGHLY commendable. However, I would recommend only taking a month or two course at a time before taking a few weeks break off of them (maybe to try out Superfruit Slim, which I have just started) as their effectiveness diminishes over time as your body gets used to them.
I ordered this product mid-April and am really liking it so far! Have lost noticeable weight (that people comment on). I do exercise regularly anyway so haven’t changed anything there, it's just given me a much needed boost. The only thing I will say is that – as a big caffeine drinker myself – do not drink caffeine while taking this product, at first I continued to drink caffeine as normal and couldn't sleep/was feeling a bit jittery. However when I cut the caffeine out that all stopped! Good product if taken correctly!
Two weeks ago I was 20st 11.4lbs. Weighing this morning I am 19 st 11.6lbs. 0.2 pounds away from losing a stone in two weeks. I have drank only water and eaten clean over the two weeks. The pills are amazing for helping to suppress your appetite but you must eat after the 20 min recommendation of taking them or you will experience slightly bad stomach pain until some food is digested. The energy I am experiencing from these pills has really helped me down the gym and has finally kicked me into gear for losing weight. I highly recommend these pills for helping towards your overall diet and exercise plan but that's all it is. A booster for your diet and exercise. Without diet or exercise, these pills are just a waste of money. You put in the effort and these pills will help you get the most out of what you do. 9/10.
Both the ingredients list and the customer reviews we have located suggest that Phentaslim does aid weight loss.
Whilst some side effects can occur, it seems that these are uncommon, and small changes to other lifestyle habits can prevent the majority of side effects completely. Avoiding other sources of caffeine, ensuring that the product is not taken too late in the evening, and taking the product with food (or with a glass of milk as one reviewer recommended) all seem to minimise any potential side effects, whilst still noticing significant increases in energy levels and the consumers’ rate of weight loss. Appetite suppression seems to be mild, but still helps consumers to stick to their diets.

We recommend Phentaslim to our readers who are looking for an effective but safe metabolism boosting weight loss supplement.
