Phen Ultra

Phen Ultra is a weight loss supplement that promises stable appetite control, extreme energy and rapid fat loss. It is also said to improve your mood as well.

All this sounds good but this supplement contains stimulant ingredients known for side effects and in addition, the sales website has a very low trust rating. It seems that things may not be quite what they seem with this supplement.

We take an in depth look at Phen Ultra to find out more.

Phen Ultra Pros

  • There is no good reason to take this supplement.

Phen Ultra Cons

  • Contains potentially dangerous ingredients in unknown quantities.
  • Lack of transparency about the terms of sale. Concerns about auto billing.

Phen Ultra Facts

  • Phen Ultra is sold only via the Slim Capsule website.
  • Slim Capsule is a subsidiary of Global Alliance Corp – the so-called manufacturers of Phen Ultra.
  • Each bottle contains 60 capsules.

Phen Ultra is a weight loss supplement that contains Phenylethlamine HCL as a principle ingredient. This ingredient also known as PEA is popular in supplements because it stimulates chemical messengers in the brain increasing alertness as well as serotonin and dopamine levels.

Some evidence suggests that improving mood in this way can reduce snacking and comfort eating.

The other ingredients are mainly composed of stimulants including caffeine, Yohimbine and Synephrine. This mix comes with health concerns because it raises heart rate and blood pressure as well as energy levels. Synephrine is a symptomatic agent, which means it mimics the effects of stress on the body. Side effects include loss of appetite, shaking and nervousness – as anyone who has ever been under stress will know. It is effective for weight loss but the associated side effects will not make it suitable for everyone.

Other ingredients include nettle leaf extract – a diuretic that will make you urinate more frequently. This loss of water weight may convince people that they are losing weight but comes with a risk of dehydration. If you decide to take Phen Ultra, you will need to ensure you drink plenty of liquids throughout.

Phen Ultra also contains Glucuronolactone – an ingredient that shows up in lots of energy drinks. Glucuronolactone is a naturally occurring chemical present in inter connective tissue in biology. Glucuronolactone was once believed to be dangerous and the cause of tumours but this was in fact an urban myth and according to the European Food Safety Authority is safe if ingested at no more than 1000mg per day.

Overall, we have concerns about Phen Ultra and its safety.

Phen Ultra is on sale from a US supplements website called Slim Capsule. We decided to check out the background and found that this website is classified as a high risk and is associated with adverse customer reviews. Despite this, we have been unable to find any of this negative feedback but it has put us on our guard about the Slim Capsule website.

Slim Capsule sell a range of supplement brands. We have covered some of these in previous reviews including Asia Black and Stimerex ES, both so-called ephedra supplements.

However, Phen Ultra is not a brand that is available elsewhere. It is only on sale from the Slim Capsule website so it looks as if it is a Slim Capsule own brand although this is not first apparent.

According to the product information, Phen Ultra comes from a company called Global Alliance Corp described as:

A full service professional company specializing in Fulfilment Services for USA and International sales of shipments of supplements.

In the terms and conditions it is revealed that Global Alliance Corp are the actually the parent company of Slim Capsule.

The fact that Global Alliance specialise in international shipments sounds as if Phen Ultra has been imported despite the “ made in the USA label” on the bottle. Obviously, we don’t know this for sure but it would be good to see some details about the place of manufacture.

How to Take Phen Ultra

Take (1) Capsule Prior to breakfast with water and 1 capsule after lunch with water. Do not exceed 2 capsules per day.

Phen Ultra Concerns:

  • Once Slim Capsule (Global Alliance Corp) have your credit card details, will they extract further payments for “any other fees” to fulfil your order? What are these fees?
  • You have to join the site before you can see the payment options and details. Could these include auto billing?
  • Side effects are highly likely. They are even mentioned in the terms and conditions as being no reason for a refund.

What Does Phen Ultra Claim To Do?

According to the advertising:

Phen Ultra Maximum Strength is a Powerful Weight Loss Supplement that is designed to help you Burn More Calories While Suppressing Your Appetite and Food Cravings and Providing You a feeling of Fullness.

It is described as the “Best Phentermine / Adipex-p Alternative” In fact even better than these prescription drugs known for dangerous side effects.

PhenUltra is designed to create similar or even better effects of the most popular prescription medications on the market today including Phentermine and Adipex P. All this within a safe OTC product that is created with the highest consistent quality!

We would have liked to have seen more information about this “highest consistent quality” but there is zero information about the manufacturer.

So What Is Phen Ultra and What Are The Ingredients?

Phen Ultra is a diet pill that contains a blend of stimulants. Serving size is equal to one capsule.

The ingredients are under a proprietary blend, which means we cannot provide a full breakdown of how the 450mg of each capsule is shared out among ingredients and the individual strengths.

  • Caffeine: the world’s most favourite stimulant and ideal for perking you up and increasing energy. However, it is dangerous in high levels and when combined with other ingredients, such as stimulants here, the effects of both can be increased.
  • Glucuronolactone: This natural compound is made in the body from glucose and this substance is a vital component of all connective tissue in the body. It is an ingredient in energy drinks because it is supposed to boost energy but there is a lack of evidence to prove the claims. Glucuronolactone is safe and well tolerated. An urban myth once claimed that this substance caused brain damage but was hushed up by the CIA. This is not true.

  • Phenylethlamine HCL: This is a synthetic form of Phenylethlamine (Phenylalanine) a trace amino chemical present naturally in the body. It helps to make the body’s chemical messengers so can increase feelings of wellbeing, energy and mental clarity. It is similar in molecular structure to amphetamine and can cause problems of addiction in some people even though it is a natural chemical compound. However the effects quickly wear off – in most cases between 15 and 30 minutes for most people

  • Synephrine Caprylate: This synthetic compound was first noticed in natural form in bitter orange peel and it can increase the speed of the heart and raise blood pressure, in common with other stimulants. Promotes stress response so may be effective for short-term weight loss but comes with major health concerns around side effects.

  • Nettle Leaf Extract: Well known diuretic ingredient so will cause increased urine output. Can also cause stomach complaints.
    Source: http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/nettle
  • Yohimbine HCL: chemical derived from African tree extract called the Yohimbe and often marketed as an aphrodisiac and body builder supplement. Dangerous ingredient on the supplement “dirty dozen” list and can lead to vomiting and nausea combined with a rise in heart rate and blood pressure.
    Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19640235
  • Picamilion: Supplement also known as nicotinoyl sometimes used in Russia to treat depression or glaucoma. Not much relevance to weight loss or appetite suppression.
  • Inositol Niacinate: Compound, which contains a form of Niacin (vitamin b3) which is quickly released into the blood stream. It widens blood vessels and can break up fats in blood such as cholesterol.

So What Does All This Mean?

Taking this supplement will be a gamble with your health. Most of the ingredients are known for causing side effects, some of them potentially dangerous. We have no idea of the amount of ingredient contained here either, which is of further concern.

You will probably feel “something” following taking this supplement. Whether this is good or bad will largely depend on your own physical make up, enjoyment/tolerance to stimulants and whether or not it makes you feel ill or not.

Remember that the supplements industry is unregulated so just because something is openly on sale, does not mean it is safe. We believe that Phen Ultra falls into the dangerous category.

Does Phen Ultra Have Any Side Effects?

Looking at the ingredients profile, we think it unlikely that you will get away with NOT experiencing side effects.

These may include:

  • Jitteriness
  • Tremors
  • Mood swings
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Increased heart rate
  • Palpitations
  • Increase in blood pressure – signs such as ringing in ears/ pins and needles
  • Chest pain
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Sweating
  • Stomach pains
  • Increase urine output
  • Risk of dehydration

There is a health warning on the label.

Caution:
Only suitable for individuals aged between 18 and 60. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Do not take if you have any pre-existing health conditions.

Do not take if you are prone to dehydration or exposed to excessive heat.

Do not take in combination with any prescription medication and speak to your doctor first. Discontinue use if you experience side effects and seek medical advice.

We add that you should not take this supplement if you have any history of addiction.

Any Phen Ultra Reviews From Customers?

There are a couple of reviews for Phen Ultra on the Slim Capsule website. Both are positive but neither look convincing.

Bought and tried PhenUltra and love it! No jitters but gave me energy. Also curved my appetite for a few hrs.

And:

Phenultra is amazing.. Slimcapsule is a great website for the products I need. Friendly customer service and fast delivery.

Elsewhere we cannot find a single genuine customer review for this supplement.

So Does Phen Ultra Work?

Phen Ultra does not look safe so we advise you to steer clear from this supplement.

It will probably create a stimulant effect for most people and this in turn may make you feel too wired and stressed to eat. It may cause you to lose water weight too so show up temporarily lighter on the scales. In addition, there are some addiction issues associated with PEA especially when combined with anti depressants.

None of this will help with your long term weight loss or general health.

Where Can I Buy Phen Ultra?

You can buy Phen Ultra from the Slim Capsule website. It does not seem to be available elsewhere.

1 bottle of 60 capsules (30 days supply) costs $13.99

2 x bottles costs $27.50

3 x bottles costs $40.50

4x bottles costs $53.00

US shipping is free. International shipping is also available.

Before you are allowed to buy, you have to register and join the site.

We were reluctant to do this, especially in view of the fact that Slim Capsule website is considered a high-risk site by web security experts.

So we read through the terms and conditions to try to find out whether Slim Capsule are operating Auto billing.

It seems that they might be.

Here is what the terms read about credit cards (the only way to pay):

I authorize you to charge my credit card towards the price of products sold on SlimCapsule.com, any shipping fees and any other fees that you may charge to fulfill my order. I am aware that my Credit Card statement will reflect the charge by your company Global Alliance Corp.

The three important little words here are “ANY OTHER FEES” In our opinion it seems as if once you have given your credit card number, the company have a licence to withdraw funds!

What About A Guarantee

Slim Capsule do not offer a guarantee for Phen Ultra. Here is what you agree to, when you buy.

I understand that all sales are final. I further understand that I cannot cancel my order or request refunds once the SlimCapsule.com package is shipped. I am fully aware that no refund is given if I change my mind and decide not to take the product or upon my physician’s opinion that I should no longer take the product.

Watchdog Verdict

We are extremely unimpressed with Phen Ultra. The Slim Capsule website comes with a high risk warning to customers and we have our suspicions that the sales policy may include auto billing as standard practice.

We never like having to join a site before you are allowed to buy a product, as here, and the fact that the company only accepts credit cards as a payment method is suspicious. In addition, why is this supplement only sold through this dodgy looking website? All factors which have got our scam sensors fully on Red Alert.

When it comes to the supplement, we are equally concerned. Phen Ultra does not look safe and we feel that side effects will be a major problem It seems that the company are expecting problems too. The guarantee disclaimer states that you will not get a refund even if your doctor advises you to not take this supplement. Without question anyone who did visit a doctor to ask about the safety of taking this supplement, would be told to avoid it. It is not safe; it will not help you lose weight. It will probably cause a range of side effects.

There is no good reason why you should trust your health or your credit card details to Phen Ultra, Slim Capsule or Global Alliance Corp so we have no other option but to reject it.

  1. I have purchased this product from eBay

    I was on a weight loss assistance from my doctor’s and I noticed that after I was off of it I had a hard time adjusting. I used this pill as instructed for a month, then I started to take only one a day and I have continued to lose weight slower but still losing. I have updated my workout which helps me sleep. I drink a lot of water so I do visit the restroom slightly more often than usual. I don’t any weight loss pill is for everyone and this is not FDA approved. But would recommend people to try it and buy from websites they know like Ebay or Amazon, who sells this pill as well.
