So What Does All This Mean?

The majority of the product consists of several proprietary formulas and so no individual ingredient quantities are provided.

There are numerous stimulants in this product such as Citrus Aurantium, Hordenine, Synephrine, guggulsterones and caffeine, which can increase the metabolism, leading to increased calorie burn. They will also significantly increase energy levels. Green tea and Octopamine are other ingredients that can also increase weight loss, although they do not act as stimulants in the body.

There are also numerous ingredients that could be beneficial for consumers who exercise regularly and who are trying to increase their muscle mass. Hesperidin could increase blood flow. Several ingredients could help to reduce inflammation and muscle soreness after exercise, helping the consumer to stick with a rigorous gym schedule without feeling exhausted.

Does Anadrox Have Any Side Effects?

There are numerous ingredients used in Anadrox that can cause a range of side effects. The warnings list provided by the manufacturers of Anadrox is extensive, and includes a list of lots of groups of people who should not use this product.

Side effects associated with the use of Bitter Orange extracts include increased heart rate and increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, fainting, muscle disorders, seizures, irregular heartbeat, loss of consciousness, strokes, heart attacks, and death in previously healthy patients. The Mayo Clinic has recommended avoiding use of Bitter Orange extracts because in their opinion, the risk of using the product is not worth the pay-off of any potential weight loss. The effects of synephrine and other bitter orange extracts are enhanced when combined with caffeine. Consuming large quantities of caffeine can lead to headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness and insomnia. Green tea can also cause constipation.

Bioperine increases the bio availability of caffeine and medications; this could increase the chances of side effects from the caffeine in the product. Consumers who are taking medication are 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.

Tyramine can trigger headaches and migraines, as well as raise blood pressure. It should not be used in conjunction with MAOIs (a certain type of antidepressant).

Guggulsterones can cause a range of side effects, including stomach upset, headaches, nausea, vomiting, loose stools, diarrhoea, belching, and hiccups. Guggulsterones can also cause allergic reactions such as rash and itching. Guggulsterones can also cause skin rash and itching that is not related to allergy.

Vanadium can cause a range of side effects including abdominal discomfort, diarrhoea, nausea, and gas. It can also cause a greenish tongue, loss of energy, and problems with the nervous system. It can also lower blood sugar levels.

Caution:
Not intended for use by persons under age 18. Do not exceed recommended dose. Do not consume synephrine or caffeine from other sources, including but not limited to, coffee, tea, soda and other dietary supplements or medications containing phenylephrine or caffeine. Contains caffeine. Do not use for more than 8 weeks. Consult your physician prior to use if you are pregnant or nursing, or if you are taking medication, including but not limited to, MAOI inhibitors, antidepressants, aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or products containing phenylephrine, ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, or other stimulants. Consult your physician prior to use if you have a medical condition, including, but not limited to, heart, liver, kidney, or thyroid disease, psychiatric or epileptic disorders, difficulty urinating, diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiac arrhythmia, recurrent headaches, enlarged prostate or glaucoma. Discontinue 2 weeks prior to surgery or if you experience rapid heartbeat, dizziness, severe headache or shortness of breath.

Any Anadrox Reviews From Customers?

There are several reviews for Anadrox that have been left by customers on bodybuilding.com. We have included a selection of them below. It is important to remember that the majority of bodybuilding.com reviewers are regular users of weight loss supplements and pre-exercise energy boosters, and so often have a high tolerance for these types of products.

This is one of my favorite supplements; it INCREASES stamina drastically while decreasing fat percentage. I can’t say enough about this product, it’s one of best out there that does not give you the jitters!!!!

great supp to lose weight and increase energy before workout. i lost 13 pounds in 2 months using anadrox while maintaining all of my strength. i highly recommend this product.

This is one of the better NO booster I’ve ever tried. However, it is not the NO boosting effect that makes this product remarkable. What makes Anadrox great is its fat burning qualities! Without really changing my routine, I have lost 10lbs within one month of regular usage. I highly recommend!

I found this product great for energy during my dieting phase. I couldn’t take the recommended dose initially as it is too strong but did build up to it over the weeks. I definitely couldn’t take it after 12pm or i would not sleep well. I could feel this product working as opposed to others which I would only notice for a few weeks if that. I will take it again.

The first time I took this, I thought my shirt was going to rip and my veins were going to explode out of my arms. I’ve never experienced anything like it. I also felt like I was going to vibrate out of my skin, I felt like I was floating and I had trouble sleeping…and I didn’t even use a full dose! I used it for about 3 weeks before I got fed up with the out-of-body experiences I had every time I took it. Not for me.

So Does Anadrox Work?

The ingredients list suggests that Anadrox is a strong stimulant. However, without knowing the exact ingredient quantities it is impossible to know just how strong it really is, or how likely it is that any of the numerous potential side effects could occur. The customer reviews suggest that anyone who has a high tolerance for stimulants and fat burning supplements will find this product effective but not too strong, whilst consumers who have never used a fat burner before, or who are not undertaking regular muscle-building exercise, will struggle with the strength of the product, and are quite likely to develop a range of unpleasant side effects.

Customers who are considering purchasing this product should ensure that they read the cautionary message provided by the company (in the side effects section), and if they have any of the health issues mentioned, avoid use of the product.

Where Can I Buy Anadrox?

When purchased direct from the manufacturer one small bottle (112 Tablets) costs $41.99 and one large Bottle (224 Tablets) costs $79.99 plus delivery charges.

Androx can also be purchased from bodybuilding.com. Here a bottle of 112 Capsules costs $22.98 and a bottle of 224 Capsules costs $44.81.

As the recommended daily dose for maximum results is eight capsules, the product will be used up quite quickly. A smaller bottle would last for 14 days, whilst the larger bottle would last for 28 days. Obviously if consumers take a lower dosage, the product will last longer (and they may be less likely to experience side effects).

What About A Guarantee

When purchased direct from the manufacturers, Anadrox is:

Covered by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If you’re not completely satisfied with your product, you may return the item within 45 days of delivery for a full refund of the purchase price, minus the shipping and handling.

The address and other instructions are on the MHP Strong official website.

Bodybuilding.com have a comprehensive returns policy that covers both opened and unopened products. Where a full refund is unavailable on a returned product, they usually offer store credit or an exchange instead.

Watchdog Verdict

Anadrox is clearly not suitable for anyone who leads a sedentary lifestyle. The ingredients list and customer feedback suggest that it is very strong, relying upon numerous stimulants that will affect the body’s central nervous system. Considering the long list of potential side effects, and the long list of restrictions of who should not use the product for health reasons, it appears that this product could even be too strong!

The product is expensive when ordered from the manufacturer’s official website, especially considering that one small bottle will last for just 14 days if used at the recommended dosage. Although the manufacturers do not state this, we advise starting at all smaller dose, and slowly building up the dose in order to assess tolerance. The recommended dose for maximum results is eight capsules per day. This is a huge number of capsules to take, and may be inconvenient for some people.

There is a money back guarantee on any product that is ordered from the manufacturer’s official website, but considering the price of Anadrox, this is not the best option. Bodybuilding.com offer a much lower price, and still have a solid returns policy.

Overall, we would not recommend Anadrox to our readers, as it should not be used by many people for health reasons, is expensive, and appears to cause side effects frequently.
