What does Apex-TX5 claim to do?

The manufacturers make the following claims about Apex-TX5:

Apex-TX5 supercharges your metabolic rate to make sure that when you make a solid effort to burn the excess fat off your body, you’ll be rewarded for your labours. You’ll burn far more fat and calories throughout every day and night, for a difference you can see.

  • Instantly increased energy
  • Appetite suppression & food craving busting
  • Mood support for superior diet control

The company also uses dramatic statements such as,

Skyrockets the metabolism to never-before seen levels.


Shrinks overall body fat percentage giving awesome definition to muscles underneath.

Does Apex-TX5 work?

The reviews are mixed, but most of them generally agree that this diet pill does boost energy levels. Some people have also noticed some weight loss.

The ingredients do suggest that this could be a mild weight loss aid that could boost energy levels and mildly increase the metabolic rate of the consumer. When combined with a calorie controlled diet, this could lead to weight loss in the long term.

However, we do not believe that this product is anywhere near as strong as the manufacturers describe in their marketing. We also believe that the product is not going to be a strong appetite suppressant, as the only ingredient used for appetite suppression had almost no clinical support.

The fact that no ingredient quantities are provided makes it more difficult to establish the effectiveness of this diet pill.

Apex-TX5 Ingredients

The ingredients used in Apex-TX5 are listed below. The diet pill contains a proprietary formula, and so no individual ingredients are provided. The ingredients are also only listed in an explanation of how the product works, and so may not even be a complete ingredients profile.

  • Acetyl-L-Carnitine HCl: There is some evidence that supplementation acetyl-l-carnitine can reduce body fat, although the strongest results were seen in the elderly. The ingredient also boosts energy levels, and is used to treat fatigue. Source
  • Caffeine Anhydrous (1,3,7-trimethylxanthine): Numerous studies have shown that caffeine boosts energy levels and alertness, as well as mildly boosting the metabolism. The effects shown in studies are small, and some studies are inconclusive. Source
  • Beta-Phenylethylamine HCl: More commonly known as PEA, this ingredient is thought to increase alertness, aid in concentration and focus, and may also enhance mood. These are all arguably traits that dieters need help with in succeeding with their weight loss attempts. Source
  • L-Tyrosine: Some people use L-Tyrosine as an appetite suppressant, but there is little clinical evidence that it is effective for this use. Large doses of tyrosine may be useful for increasing alertness, especially in people who are sleep deprived. Source
  • Theobromine: Found in cocoa beans, this is a mild stimulant and mild diuretic. However, it is thought to be much weaker than caffeine, and so is unlikely to make much of an impact on weight loss efforts. Source

What Does All This Mean?

Without knowing the ingredient quantities used in this diet pill, it is difficult to establish just how strong the product is.

Numerous ingredients in this diet pill will boost energy levels and reduce fatigue. L-Tyrosine is thought to be an appetite suppressant, but there is little clinical evidence to support this.

Caffeine and theobromine are both stimulants but are not very strong. They may increase the consumer’s metabolic rate moderately, but this small increase is unlikely to result in dramatic weight loss.

Apex-TX5 Side Effects

The manufacturers make the following statement about potential side effects that could be caused by consuming Apex-TX5: When taken as directed, there should not be any side effects. However, some people who are sensitive to stimulants may become excited and/or jittery. As with any product, there is always the possibility of an allergic reaction to one of the ingredients.

If you have any unusual symptoms when taking this product, discontinue its use right away. If symptoms are severe, please seek medical attention.

Going through the ingredients individually, we have identified a range of possible side effects that could occur whilst taking this diet pill.

Apex-TX5 Customer Feedback

There are numerous reviews for this product on Amazon. Whilst the majority are positive, there are also a number of people who were dissatisfied with the product.

Did absolutely nothing for me.

Don’t bother buying this product!!! I think people were paid to write positive reviews about this product, I did not feel any different when taking this, nor did it give me more energy. I did a test and took the pills one day and none the next. I felt no different…only losing weight by drastically cutting my calories! This is a scam!!!

I had high hopes based on other reviews of this product, but it just didn’t do anything for me. My appetite did not change and I’ve had no weight loss. I wish I would have done more research before ordering.

Despite these negative reviews, the majority of customers appear to be pleased with the product. Some reviewers have doubted the validity of these reviews, but most appear to be verified purchases made through Amazon. Whilst this is not an infallible system, it does suggest that at least some of these positive reviews are authentic.

I am actually really surprised at how much it curved my appetite. I literally am not hungry but I do eat. I get full very easily, I don’t have to eat as much as I did before taking these pills. That’s one major thing that is helping me lose weight. I’m down almost 5 pounds for this week. So I think that’s pretty amazing…Also, I’m so so glad that these pills didn’t give me a headache or make me feel shaky. So many pills before have given me awful side effects. They give me a good boost of energy! I’m on my feet at work (being a server) and I’m just on the go go go. I don’t get as tired or worn out. The only thing I noticed is that since I do have much more energy than before, I’ve been up a little later than normal. It suggests to not take them less than 5 hours before bedtime. I’ve followed that but it seems to keep me awake for longer than normal. So far, I’m happy and pleased with the purchase because 1) it curved MY appetite. 2) I didn’t get any negative side effects. 3) it gave me the right amount of needed energy! I know everyone’s different so you may or may not get similar results. I’m happy though!

One mixed review shows how this product appears to work for some people but not others:

They are not working for me. I feel no different. My sister on the other hand is full of energy and isn’t hungry.

The official manufacturer offers a number of different discounts for bulk purchases. A single bottle costs $48, whilst two bottles cost $89. Three bottles are on offer for $119, whilst the largest bulk package of six bottles is available for $199. The three and six bottle packages both come with free delivery. Delivery costs are based upon the location of the consumer.

Watchdog Verdict

With absolutely no returns accepted by the manufacturer, we are sceptical about Intechra Health’s confidence in their own product range. The company also fails to reveal the quantities used in Apex-TX5, or even provide a total quantity of ingredients used in the proprietary formula.

The ingredients that are listed by the manufacturer are well known and are commonly used in diet pills. However, in this particular formulation, caffeine appears to be the strongest metabolism-boosting ingredient. Considering that caffeine is considered to only have a small but significant effect upon the body, Apex-TX5 may not be a strong weight loss aid.

The claims made by the manufacturer are exaggerated dramatically, with outlandish statements such as ‘Skyrockets the metabolism to never-before seen levels’.

Overall, we cannot recommend this product as it is simply not strong enough to make a significant difference to weight loss.

2 comments on 'Apex-TX5'

  1. I ordered this product from amazon. I received an email from Intechra Heath that stated if I gave a positive review on amazon they would send me free bottles. That could explain all the positive reviews. They make me feel sick and do not work. They leave me feel thirsty to the point I can not quench my thirst. Dry mouth, not much energy due to the fact they make me sick.

  2. I just got my order in the mail yesterday. I started on it this AM! I have not noticed any increased energy as of yet. I took my first dose with breakfast and am about to take my second dose with my lunch. I am praying that this works for me..
