Now and again in this job, we come across diet pills that make some pretty wild claims, and have simply nothing to back them up. Is Anoretix another diet pill that doesn’t deliver on its promises or is it just another scam?
With a strong focus on supposedly genuine testimonials from consumer’s who have reported lots of weight, Anoretix offers little information as to how it actually works. We reveal why this product could be best avoided!
- Main ingredient proven not to work for weight loss
- Clever manipulation techniques
- Proprietary blend of ingredients
Watchdog Rejected Diet Pills
As is usual with our reviews we try and get hold of a sample of the product to see what the delivery and logistics is like, how long it takes to come etc.
Nearly all reputable companies are happy to send a free sample out if they have nothing to hide, but not in this case. We contacted them and managed to get through to an outsourced support centre, but they were unable to help.
So we wrote a nice email but didn’t receive a reply so as a last resort we were going to send a letter. Alas no contact details for an address, not a good sign at all! If something goes wrong how will you get hold of a physical address for them?
- Customer reviews are anecdotal
- Contains a proprietary blend
- Website designed to mislead you
What Does Anoretix Claim To Do?
Lets start with the name shall we “Anoretix”.
This is a subliminal trick they have used, by changing it slightly from “Anorectic” they are trying to trick you into thinking that you will lose massive amounts of weight. Your mind will associate the name with being thin, without you consciously thinking about, very clever and very manipulative.
So we take a closer look at the website and see what we can find out. It looks like yet another site by one of the scam diet pill sites based in Utah. Same layout and same clever tricks to fool their potential customers.
First off we have a bold headline:
“I lost 27 pounds in 5 weeks!” supposedly written by “Miyoney.”
This is meant to imply that this person lost this amount of weight by using Anoretix and so could you….BUT …. there is no further evidence to back this up. It’s simply a wild claim designed to trick you.
Next we move on to the sub headline:
“Introducing The Worlds First Diet Pill With 9 Patented Weight Loss Ingredients In Every Dose!”
Well this is simply a blatant miss-truth. There is no evidence at all that this is the case, it is again designed to trick you into thinking that some incredibly talented scientists have developed a wonder diet pill.
Lets move on to the testimonials they have then listed, at last some good news.
They admit that the testimonials are anecdotal!
Lets got to Wikipedia and see what this means:
“The expression anecdotal evidence refers to evidence from anecdotes. Because of the small sample, there is a larger chance that it may be true but unreliable due to cherry picked or otherwise non-representative samples of typical cases.
It is considered evidence, although often dubious if accepted often because it is the only evidence we have. However it may itself be true and verifiable.”
Oh dear, this isn’t looking good at all, they then reference the quotes to a small disclaimer hidden away at the bottom “Results Not Typical”
So lets get this straight, they are using anecdotal evidence then saying that they are not typical results!
This is starting to look like one of the dodgiest diet pills we have looked at with a sales page full of tricks and misleading information that is the qualified by disclaimers on order to avoid legal action from the U.S Authorities.
This is not looking good, but lets press on and see what is in Anoretix.
So What Is Anoretix and What Are The Ingredients For Anoretix?
They are making a big song and dance that the ingredients of Anoretix are either patented or patent pending. Again this is a hollow claim and is being used to imply that everything has somehow been approved by Government agencies. This is far from the truth but a clever little trick designed to fool people.
So lets have a look at what is actually in Anoretix.
- ChromeMate: The only ingredient that is listed with an actual amount of 200 mcg. We have seen this ingredient several times in diet pills but its been completely discredited by the National Institute of Health website:
“Chromium supplements are sometimes claimed to reduce body fat and increase lean (muscle) mass. Yet a recent review of 24 studies that examined the effects of 200 to 1,000 mcg/day of chromium (in the form of chromium picolinate) on body mass or composition found no significant benefits” and
“In several studies, chromium’s effects on body weight and composition may be called into question”
Well there you have it, none other than a U.S agency stating that the main ingredient in Anoretix is based on fraudulent claims.
Then we have the other 8 magic ingredients:
- Super Citrimax: Claims to lower appetite and lower fat production. We have no idea what the “super” is meant to mean but sounds good.
- Advantra Z: Made from the extract of citrus aurantium or “Bitter Orange.” No tests have been done on this particular version of bitter orange.
- NeOptunia: Another fancy sounding ingredient, it claims to be a fat binder. No indication that there are sufficient amounts of this ingredient to have any effect.
- Phase 2: Made from an extract of white kidney bean, this is a carb blocker but again probably not in sufficient quantities to make any real difference.
- 7-Keto Dhea: Claims to be a natural metabolite of DHEA, a steroid that boosts muscular and mental stamina.
- ForsLean: Supposedly initiates chemical reactions in the body in order to release fat from fat cells. Said to be similar to epehedrine, a banned substance.
- Tonalin: A form of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) said to improve body composition.
- Bioperine: A black pepper supplement that claims to increase the heat of the body and so increase the metabolism.
Then we have the biggest sign yet that you are going to be sorely disappointed, all these ingredients are in a “Proprietary Blend”.
This is the number one ruse by companies to mislead you! If you see this then run a mile.
A supplement that lists a “proprietary blend” on the bottle can be there for one of two reasons:
(a) To prevent the competition from knowing exactly what ratios and amounts of each ingredient present in the formula to prevent the competition from copying their formula exactly (commonly referred to as a ‘knock off’) or
(b) To hide the fact the formula contains very little of the active ingredients listed on the bottle in an attempt to fool consumers.
This technique is commonly referred to as “label decoration” by industry insiders, and is used to simply hide the truth. There could be as little as 1mcg of some of the ingredients, which would have absolutely, zero effects for weight loss but they are allowed to get away with it.
It’s definitely a case of Buyer Beware.
So What Does All This Mean?
On the surface of it Anoretix appears to contain a number of good ingredients.
Unfortunately the main ingredient has been dismissed by the U.S. Government scientists to have no effect on weight loss.
The rest if the ingredients have then been given some fancy sounding names and jammed into a “proprietary blend” in order to hide the amounts and fool people into thinking its some sort of magic formula.
The amounts used in the pill for the ingredients bear no resemblance to any of the studies into their effects on weight loss. In effect they are cross referencing scientific studies to prove that the ingredients work, without actually providing us with the correct amounts. Another clever trick.
Does Anoretix Have Any Side Effects?
No studies have been done either into the effectiveness of Anoretix or indeed if there are any side effects from ingesting the mix that they have come up with. There could possibly be long-term damage to the body; at this stage it is impossible to say one way or the other.
Any Anoretix Reviews From Customers?
Apart from the “anecdotal” reviews on the makers website, which are a bit of a mind trick, there doesn’t seem to many positive independent comments for Anoretix. We can only find some negative reviews which is not surprising.
So Does Anoretix Work?
To put it bluntly, NO.
This is probably one of the worst diet pills we have reviewed to date, not only is the main ingredient totally discredited for weight loss but the rest of the ingredients are in a proprietary blend
Anoretix is a combination of clever marketing and mind tricks along with selective claims all mashed up in order to fool the buyer. Please do not waste your money on this product.
Where Can I Buy Anoretix?
Anoretix can be bought online direct from the main merchant, which appears to be Gadd Formulas, LLC based in Utah. This is the company receiving the payments but they are well hidden by registering under a proxy company controlled by an attorney. More reason to arouse the suspicions.
There are also appear to be a number of fake review sites that review Anoretix but the same people control them all in order to give fake reviews.
Utah is the diet pill scam capital of the U.S and probably worldwide. Never buy any diet pills from companies in Utah.
This was very easy for us to reject Anoretix as a diet pill.
Absolutely everything surrounding Anoretix is clever manipulation designed to part you with your money, please stay well away to avoid disappointment.
