We take an in-depth look at Astral Nutrition Overpwr, to see if it really could help you to lose weight and to decide if it is safe to take.
Astral Nutrition Overpwr is an appetite suppressant that uses Glucomannan as the main ingredient, alongside numerous B vitamins as well as Chromium.
It comes from the relatively new British supplements company, Astral Nutrition, who are based in the North of England and who manufacture a range of products that all target weight loss and body-building.
Glucomannan works by absorbing water in the stomach, making it really important to drink plenty of water when taking the product otherwise you could experience constipation and stomach cramps. As glucomannan is a fibre, it is likely that its usage will increase the rate of bowel movements. Diarrhoea may also occur. Glucomannan also affects blood sugar levels. Diabetics should consult their doctor before taking any glucomannan-based product.
Overpwr is reasonably expensive. It costs £29.99 for one bottle of 60 capsules, which could last as little as 20 days if the full dose is taken. It works out a lot better if only 1 capsule per day is taken and will then last for 60 days, however the effects will be particularly minimal at that dosage.
It is also available on the official website at a reduced price for multiple bottles or with another of their products, Thermaxin, for £49.99.
Astral Nutrition Overpwr is a weight loss supplement based on Glucomannan. This is a natural absorbent fibre derived from a plant extract called the Konjac root. Glucomannan absorbs water, making it form into a gel. When you ingest this substance, it expands in the stomach like a sponge and this causes you to feel fuller and satisfied for longer. According to research, glucomannan helps maintain normal blood sugar levels, manages cholesterol, and has other medical benefits too.
It does not cause jittery side effects that are often associated with weight loss products that are stimulant-based, and this also means that it can be taken at any time of the day.
Glucomannan is one of the few substances that the European Food Standards Agency (EFSA) has recognised as effective for weight loss support, so it does come with some evidence that it works.
The product also contains multiple B vitamins and chromium for added support. Check out the ingredients tab to find out more.
The product is manufactured by Astral Nutrition, a company based in the UK who claim to give their customers the tools to push past their limitations. The company offer both weight loss and weight gain supplements, in the form of fat burners, appetite suppressants, and shakes.
Astral Nutrition does offer a money-back guarantee, however it does come at a cost with you losing out on shipping costs both ways, as well as a £6 admin fee for processing your return.
Astral Nutrition Overpwr claims to help you to lose weight by suppressing the appetite; promoting a feeling of fullness, countering hunger and reducing fatigue. It claims to work in 5-10 minutes.
We think it is unlikely that Overpwr will work as described as it simply does not provide you with enough Glucomannan to work effectively. All of the clinical evidence has been based on a daily serving size of glucomannan of 3000mg a day, but this supplement only provides 1500mg at the maximum dosage so it looks pretty ineffective.
It certainly cannot meet the claims of reducing fatigue as there is nothing in this product to help with this.
Its ingredients are scientifically proven to aid weight loss and you are covered by a full 60-day money-back guarantee from a trusted company, making Phentatrim a very popular choice in the diet world.
Phentatrim is the best thing to hit the supplement market in a long time, with thousands of customers already seeing the benefits. That’s why it's our editor's top pick.

The principle ingredient glucomannan is generally safe, but can cause some mild side effects of consuming fibre such as:
It is important to take glucomannan with plenty of water, so that it can expand safely in the stomach where it does not cause any type of blockage.
Do not use if pregnant or breastfeeding. Not for use by persons under the age of 18.
There are some reviews on Amazon, the majority of which are very positive. However, from analysing the reviews on review checking website Fakespot, it does appear that many of them may not be genuine.
An example of a positive review includes:
this really works for me as have tried many different products before that have filled me out but i wanted an appetite suppressant to stop me picking at food and this works better than the other products
Negative reviews mostly say that the product has done nothing at all:
Speedy delivery. Product not effective at all with me! Very disappointing
Yes, Astral Nutrition does offer a money-back guarantee. However, they do not refund your shipping costs for the delivery or the return (even if you got free shipping!) and they also take an ‘admin fee’ of £6 so you will still be losing out on quite a bit of your money even if the product does not work for you.
Your refund will be the total amount paid, minus the cost of shipping and minus a small handling admin fee of £6. If you received free shipping on your order, our incurred shipping cost will still be deducted from the final value. We will not be able to reimburse the cost of returning the products.
You can buy it from Amazon for £29.99 for 60 capsules. It is also available on the official website at the same cost, as well as at a reduced price for multiple bottles or with another of their products, Thermaxin, for £49.99.
Astral Nutrition Overpwr is a British made supplement that contains Glucomannan as the principle ingredient. However, even with the maximum dose of 3 capsules, you are only getting half of the recommended quantity you need per day, so we cannot see this supplement having much of an effect on weight loss.
Glucomannan has been approved by EFSA, but in many cases, clinical testing has been carried out over months rather than weeks using double times the amount of Glucomannan as is present here.
We do like Glucomannan as a weight loss aid; it can work for those who are sticking to a healthy diet, and it can have a beneficial effect on blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
However, we feel that there are much better choices than Astral Nutrition Overpwr because the levels of the key ingredient are just too low. Due to this, we do not recommend Astral Nutrition Overpwr to our readers.
