Below we take an in-depth look at Phenatrim, to see just how effective this product really is.
Phenatrim is, according to the official website, a fat burner and appetite suppressant that causes dramatic weight loss without the need to change diet or take up exercise.
Here at Diet Pills Watchdog, whenever we see such dramatic claims being made we are instantly sceptical. Even the strongest of diet pills can easily be counteracted by overeating and a lack of activity.
There is also a lack of information about the manufacturers of this product. The website is copyrighted to Phenatrim.com, rather than obviously being the property of any diet pill or supplement company. There is no location provided for the company, or contact details beyond the generic contact form provided on the website. Based upon the delivery options and the currency, we believe that the company is based in the USA, and delivers exclusively to customers within the US.
Take 2 capsules two times a day with a full glass of water.
The best times to take the product are immediately upon waking and 30 minutes before lunch.
Do not exceed the suggested dose.
Do not take within 6 hours of bedtime.
It appears that PhenaTrim was once on sale through amazon, as this still shows up on google search results. However, the product is no longer available on amazon, and even the product page has been removed.
Despite this, we were able to access the customer reviews for the product that had been left on amazon; these reviews are a mixture of incredibly positive but poorly written reviews that appear fake, and comments from dissatisfied customers who compared the product to ‘taking nothing at all’.
Phenatrim promises to melt fat away and suppress the appetite, ‘without changing your diet’. The manufacturers describe the product as containing all natural ingredients.
The official website states:
With the use of PhenaTrim you will be burning off the calories and shedding pounds without spending hours in the gym. Utilizing only pharmaceutical grade ingredients, PhenaTrim suppresses appetite, reduces overeating, boosts metabolism, increases energy levels and burns fat, all while sculpting lean muscle. PhenaTrim has been shown to provide drastic weight loss in not just overweight individuals but also those who have been trying to rid themselves of those stubborn pounds that won’t seem to go away.
No ingredient quantities are provided on the official website for this product, and the official website even fails to provide a full ingredients list, mentioning only vitamin B3, Garcinia Cambogia, DHEA, Fucoxanthin and Guarana. However, the sales page on amazon for PhenaTrim does provide a full ingredients list, with some ingredient quantities. The quantities provided below are per serving of two capsules.
Proprietary blend 725 mg:
The inclusion of DHEA, which is lab-synthesised, shows that this product is not all-natural as the manufacturer states. Guarana is a source of caffeine, which will provide an energy boost and may mildly increase the body’s metabolic rate. Chromium helps to regulate blood sugar levels, which can be useful for reducing cravings for food between meals.
The manufacturers do not mention any possible side effects that could occur whilst using PhenaTrim. However, some of the individual ingredients may cause some side effects.
Caffeine, which is naturally present in Guarana, can cause various side effects including headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness and insomnia. Garcinia cambogia can cause nausea, digestive tract discomfort and headache. Its long term safety is unknown, and so should not be used in the long term.
Guggulsterones are extracted from guggul; side effects from the use of this ingredient include stomach upset, headaches, nausea, vomiting, loose stools, diarrhoea, belching, and hiccups. Guggul can also cause allergic reactions such as rash and itching. Guggul can also cause skin rash and itching that is not related to allergy. These side effects are more common when using larger doses than are included in Phenatrim, but are still possible at lower doses.
Potential side effects of DHEA consumption include acne, hair loss, stomach upset, and high blood pressure. Some women can have changes in menstrual cycle, facial hair growth, and a deeper voice after taking DHEA. DHEA should not be supplemented for more than three months at a time.
DHEA use is banned by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), and may also be banned by other Athletic Associations. Competing athletes should consult the relevant official guidelines before purchasing this product, as consuming DHEA could lead to disqualification from sporting and athletic competitions.
Not suitable for those under the age of 18.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
If unsure about the suitability of this diet pill, consult your doctor before purchase.
The website features a number of positive customer testimonials. However, we strongly suspect that these are not authentic reviews. The pictures alongside them appear to have been taken from a number of different weight loss success story website, where the dieters attribute their success to various diet plans, including the Dukan diet and Paleo diet, and make no mention of the use of any diet pills.
The product was once available on amazon, and customers have left a variety of reviews here.
It did not take my appetite or anything. i did not see any changes in energy or anything.
Didn’t help for nothing waste of money… this is false advertising. I would not recommend it to no one, please don’t throw your money with this.
Something Fishy Here. I don’t trust the reviews because every one of these people giving it high marks have only reviewed this particular product. I’m not falling for it.
I read the reviews and they were all positive but taking these are like taking nothing at all. Not really impressed.
Below are some of the positive reviews that other customers have called into question.
When I got this wonderful product. I feel so sexy without going to gym. I really love this product.
I really don’t know how,but it does work..I feel lighter, don’t ask me how or why, I just do..I’ll definitely order it again.
I Love Phenatrim!! I just started using it a few days ago, and have already had great results without much exercise! I work midnights, and haven’t had time to exercise with it yet, but I have not felt tired or worn down at work!! I haven’t had any side effects like I normally get with other diet pills! I am positive this is going to be the product to help me reach my weight loss goals!! Thank you Phenatrim!!!
As many of the positive customer testimonials, both on the official website and on amazon, are likely fraudulently written, we are left with only the ingredients list and a reduced number of reviews to judge the product by. The negative reviews all suggest that the product provides no energy boost, no appetite suppression and leads to no weight loss.
The ingredients list shows that there are no strong stimulants or appetite suppressants present in this product. Whilst caffeine and chromium have both been shown to aid weight loss, their impact is minimal, and usually only noticed after prolonged use combined with a calorie restricted diet.
Garcinia Cambogia is an incredibly popular diet pill ingredient at the moment, but in reality the evidence from clinical trials suggests that it is not a strong weight loss aid- studies are inconclusive, with some showing no weight loss at all.
Whilst in the past PhenaTrim could be purchased through amazon.com, the product is no longer listed here.
This means that PhenaTrim is available exclusively through the official PhenaTrim website. There are several offers available for purchases of multiple bottles.
A single bottle costs $21.95 plus delivery costs. The multibuy offers are both to buy a certain number of products and get some more PhenaTrim free. Purchasing three bottles (buy two, get one free) costs $43.90, whilst purchasing five bottles (buy three, get two free) costs $65.85.
Delivery charges start at $2.99, although quicker and more expensive shipping options are available.
According to the official website, there is a 90-day money-back guarantee on PhenaTrim. However, because no returns address or company information are provided, we are sceptical about this offer.
With the official PhenaTrim website providing no information about the product’s manufacturers, and incomplete information about the product itself, we are not impressed with the company who sell PhenaTrim.
The ingredients list is only partially listed on the official website, but even with the full ingredients list available, it is clear to see that this is not a strong weight loss aid. The product relies upon caffeine from guarana to provide a small boost to the metabolism, and depends upon the recent popularity of Garcinia Cambogia to help promote the product.
With fake positive customer reviews and testimonials, and numerous complaints from dissatisfied customers, it is clear that Phenatrim is an ineffective weight loss aid sold by a company desperate to boost sales.
