Below we take an in-depth look at Fedramine to see if it is an effective weight loss aid and fat burner, and whether or not it is manufactured by a reputable company.
Fedramine is a weight loss supplement that is described as an alternative to Ephedra. The manufacturers also state that it is made from an ‘Extreme Energy and Weight Loss Formula’, as well as describing the product as an appetite suppressant.
Fedramine is only available from a My Shopify store; this suggests that the manufacturers are not a large company, and are not very professional either. It is likely that they do not have their own manufacturing facilities, and instead have hired another company to manufacture the product to their specifications. The About Us page states that Fedramine is sold by a company called Internet Marketing Solutions Group, LLC.
The company can be contacted using the information provided on the About Us page of the Fedramine sales website.
‘Fedramine should be taken one half hour before breakfast and one half hour before lunch and at least 10 to 12 hours prior to your normal bedtime. Take with water and swallow whole. Do not break, crush, or chew before swallowing. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible. If it is afternoon, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.’
Fedramine is described as an:
appetite suppressant developed to aid short-term weight management and increase energy levels when used in coordination with a proper diet and a doctor approved exercise program.
The sales page also states that the product is designed to provide ‘extreme energy’.
There are no individual ingredient quantities provided for Fedramine, but it appears that the product contains a total of 400 mg of active ingredients per capsule. Consumers are instructed to take two capsules per day.
The lack of individual ingredient quantities is frustrating, as it makes it impossible to establish the actual strength of the diet pill. This means that trying to predict its effectiveness, and the likelihood of side effects occurring, are both impossible.
Green tea increases thermogenesis in the body, and may aid mild weight loss when taken in sufficient quantities, but its effects are still considered to be relatively small. Caffeine is present in this diet pill from both green tea and guarana, even though it is not a listed ingredient. Caffeine will also have a mild impact upon the consumer’s rate of weight loss, as it causes small increases to the body’s metabolic rate. Citrus Aurantium is a strong stimulant that has been clinically proven to stimulate the central nervous system and increase the body’s metabolic rate. This will cause an increase in calorie burn. However, citrus aurantium can cause a wide range of side effects, and the Mayo Clinic have questioned its safety, recommending consumers to avoid this ingredient. It also interacts with caffeine, making both more potent than they would be if used separately. Metabromine is another stimulant, although this is considered far less potent than caffeine.
Chromium lowers blood sugar levels, and its consumption could lead to a minimal amount of weight loss if used in the long term. White willow bark acts as a mild pain killer, as it contains salicin, which is similar in structure to aspirin.
There is very little information available about the doses used in Fedramine, and so it is impossible to know just how likely or unlikely it is that side effects will occur.
Side effects associated with the use of bitter orange extract 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 including synephrine 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 are enhanced when combined with caffeine.
Guarana and green tea are both natural sources of caffeine. Caffeine consumption 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.
Chromium can lower blood sugar levels, and so should not be used by diabetics before they consult their doctor. Whilst generally lowering blood sugar levels is not problematic, if this product were to be taken when the consumer already had low blood sugar levels, they could develop side effects such as dizziness, light-headedness and even fainting.
White willow bark can cause side effects such as stomach upset, digestive system upset, itching rash and allergic reactions. Anyone who is allergic to aspirin should not consume this product, as white willow bark contains salicin, which is very similar to aspirin.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for those under the age of 18. Diabetics should consult their doctor before purchasing this product. Discontinue use at least two weeks before any scheduled surgery. Not suitable for anyone with any cardiac related health problems, including but not limited to high blood pressure. Not suitable for anyone who is allergic to aspirin. Not suitable for anyone who is sensitive to caffeine or other stimulants.
It appears that there are no customer reviews for Fedramine.
Theoretically, the main ingredients in Fedramine should aid some weight loss through increasing the metabolism. However, with no ingredient quantities provided, it is impossible to establish just how strong or effective this product really is. With no available customer reviews of Fedramine either, we have to conclude that the product could theoretically work, but we have no actual evidence of this.
Considering that each capsule contains 400 mg of the active ingredients, of which there are six, it seems very likely that many of the ingredients are present in inadequate quantities to make much of a difference to the consumer’s rate of weight loss. Studies using theobromine use a minimum of 250 mg, and up to a gram per day, whilst one study using catechins extracted from green tea used daily doses of 690 mg.
Fedramine can be purchased from the official Fedramine My Shopify webpage. Fedramine costs $45.00 for a single bottle of 60 capsules. Delivery on single bottle orders costs an additional $9.00. For a bulk purchase of three bottles (180 capsules), customers will pay $99.00, with free shipping.
Consumers are instructed to take up to two capsules per day, and so a standard bottle of 60 capsules will last for one month, whilst the larger offer of three bottles will last for three months of daily use.
The manufacturers of Fedramine offer a 30-day money-back guarantee.
If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, please contact the Support Center within 30 days of the date the original order was placed.
Orders that consist of two or more bottles must be returned unopened to received credit.
All returns must be assigned an RMA number which can be done by clicking on the “Submit Ticket” here in the Support Suite. Someone from our Customer Care Department will be happy to provide you assistance in making arrangements to return the product.
Contact details are provided in the About Us section of the fedramine sales website.
We are not impressed by Fedramine at all; whilst the ingredients list suggests that the product could aid weight loss, the company fail to provide a lot of necessary information about the product and themselves. No individual doses are listed at all, and we suspect strongly, because of the 400 mg total dosage per capsule (800mg per daily serving), that many of the ingredients are provided in inadequate dosing.
The sellers of this product are a marketing company that have no apparent history in manufacturing and selling diet pills, other than Fedramine. They have taken a very unprofessional route by setting up a My Shopify page rather than setting up an actual product website. We find their statement that they are ‘a leader in providing high quality all -natural supplements online’ inaccurate.
There is a money-back guarantee that lasts for 30 days from the purchase date. However, the cost of a single bottle is quite high. There is a discount for a larger order of 3 bottles (180 capsules), but we feel that this is not enough of an incentive to purchase a product that may not aid weight loss.
Overall, we do not recommend Fedramine to our readers.
