Phentaslim is a powerful metabolism booster. This means it will work to raise your metabolic rate. All sounds like too much science? Probably. Put simply, a faster metabolism is the perfect way to lose weight, and to lose it properly.
We’ll get straight to the point: for ‘fat burning’, we’re yet to find a better product.
We’ve loved Phentaslim ever since it was first made available many years back. It’s now better than ever, having been revised to make it vegan-friendly. All considered, there’s very little not to like about this weight loss supplement.
The company who make Phentaslim is about as blunt as they come when it comes to weight loss: there are no miracle cures, you can’t just take a pill and expect great results. Great results come with a bit of extra effort.
This is why they market Phentaslim at people who are actually serious about weight loss and not those who just want to swallow a pill and then eat a wedge of cake. This product requires discipline, from you, for it to work effectively.
Below, we take an in-depth look at Phentaslim to see how effective it is at helping with your weight loss goals.
Phentaslim is manufactured by a company called Optimum Nutra Inc. The Phentaslim website starts off with a testimonial from a happy customer who claims to have lost 18 pounds over a period of five weeks and extolls the virtues of using Phentaslim to achieve this.
It is said that this can be achieved as the product increases the metabolism, reduces excess body fat, decreases hunger cravings, and increases energy levels. The product also claims to support good mental balance, good concentration, and co-ordination.
The product is manufactured in Government-inspected facilities that have met the highest standards of production. The company can be contacted using the information provided on the official website.
Optimum Nutra Inc. has an excellent reputation for customer service, and we were unable to find any customer complaints about the company. We sent an inquiry via the contact form regarding some of the ingredients and received a detailed reply back within a couple of hours. It feels like they are aiming for a personal touch and put the customer first.
You should follow the directions on the product label. This is currently stated as three capsules per day spread evenly; one before breakfast, one before lunch, and one late afternoon or early evening. Customers may also want to start with a lower dosage to assess personal tolerance levels.
The manufacturer of Phentaslim describes the following benefits for the product:
Both the ingredients list and the customer reviews we have located suggest that Phentaslim aids weight loss without the side effects seen in other supplements.
Appetite suppression seems to be very effective for many consumers too, meaning this could help you to stick to a lower calorie diet plan that you may be following.
Each daily serving of Phentaslim is comprised of three capsules. You are advised to split them over the course of the day, ideally before meals and taken with a glass of water.
The actual makeup of the supplement is said to be a “metabolic diet formula” and the blend of ingredients certainly agrees with this:
Although each of the above ingredients have all been clinically proven to be effective, the significance is in the way they are blended in an optimal combination. This also allows for the correct ingestion and processing as a whole, leading to the overall thermogenic effect.
Amino acids are critical to the correct metabolisation of fats, as well as effective brain functioning. This allows the body to produce enough fat-burning hormones. It’s like getting a hormone kick-start in a natural manner and in harmony with the body’s needs.
This vitamin and mineral complex has been blended to work in conjunction with the thermogenics. Put simply, the body needs adequate amounts of these (the B vitamins in particular) in order to provide energy.
The “triple action” effect of the thermogenic, amino acid and vitamin/mineral complexes contained in Phentaslim produce a very impressive combination.
Normally we see ingredients skimped on, with the more expensive ingredients – usually the ones that actually work – reduced in volume. This is not the case here. It’s rare that we see a product that packs as much punch as Phentaslim.
Whilst many diet pill manufacturers offer statements and make dramatic claims about how their product works to aid weight loss, very few offer evidence for their claims. The manufacturers of Phentaslim have included numerous links to the clinical trials they have referenced.
Caffeine will increase the body’s metabolism for a period of a few hours after consumption. The content for each capsule is about the same as a cup of coffee, so spacing out the doses, taking two with breakfast and one with lunch or before exercise will maximize the energy and metabolism boost throughout the day. Theanine will help to counteract some of the “jitters” a few people experience. The inclusion of black pepper extract will likely increase the absorption of caffeine, enhancing its effects.
Green tea and cayenne pepper will both increase thermogenesis in the body, burning more calories in the process. Cayenne pepper may also have a small appetite suppressing effect, although studies suggest that this is small.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Tyrosine are both amino acids, so can be used by the body to create muscle mass when the consumer is undertaking muscle building exercises.
The vitamins provided in this supplement are of an appropriate level compared to the recommended daily intake. Consumers should ideally not combine this product with other sources of caffeine or other B vitamin supplements.
Whilst some of the ingredients used in Phentaslim can cause side effects in a very few consumers who are very sensitive to caffeine, the dosages are well-balanced to be effective whilst making side effects uncommon.
As with anyone who is taking prescription medication, you should consult your doctor before taking a product of this type. Theanine claims to help counteract some of the potential side effects of caffeine, including any jitters.
Caution: Always swallow the capsules with water. Do not take if pregnant or nursing. If you have any medical conditions or are taking any medication, consult your doctor before use. Not suitable for anyone suffering from any heart-related health issues, including, but not limited to, high blood pressure. Not suitable for those under the age of 18.
Numerous customers have left their feedback for Phentaslim here at Diet Pills Watchdog. A selection of these comments are below:
Started taking 1 of these each morning on Wed this week and am down 2 pounds already! Has given me the ability to get out of recliner and be the wife and grandmother Ive always wanted to be! Spotlessly clean house and flowerbeds are weeded. Been to the gym every day since starting these! Has really helped with my hunger and curbed appetite. I pray they continue to help like this!
I received my order in the mail super fast which was awesome. Best of luck to everyone who takes these, they’re great!
So after a full two month course on these pills, I am very happy to announce that I have lost two and a half stone in two months! I would recommend these to anyone hoping to get a head start on their weight loss as the extended energy, fuller feeling of stomach and ease of use make these HIGHLY commendable.
I ordered this product mid-April and am really liking it so far! Have lost noticeable weight (that people comment on). I do exercise regularly anyway so haven’t changed anything there, it’s just given me a much needed boost. The only thing I will say is that – as a big caffeine drinker myself – do not drink coffee while taking this product, at first I couldn’t sleep/was feeling a bit jittery. However when I cut the coffee down that all stopped! Good product if taken correctly!
Two weeks ago I was 20st 11.4lbs. Weighing this morning I am 19 st 11.6lbs. 0.2 pounds away from losing a stone in two weeks.
I have drank only water and eaten clean over the two weeks. The pills are amazing for helping to suppress your appetite but I recommend you have a small amount to eat after the 20 min recommendation of taking them or you will experience a weird stomach until some food is digested. The energy I am experiencing from these pills has really helped me down the gym and has finally kicked me into gear for losing weight. I highly recommend these pills for helping towards your overall diet and exercise plan but that’s all it is. A booster for your diet and exercise. You put in the effort and these pills will help you get the most out of what you do. 9.9/10.
The manufacturers offer a 60-day money-back guarantee on this supplement, which starts from the order date. This is valid for one opened bottle – any additional bottles returned should be unopened.
Customers should obtain an RMA number from the company’s customer service department before sending the package, and should mark the RMA number clearly on the outside of the package.
Customers can order Phentaslim from the official Phentaslim website, and have a choice of several multi-buy purchase options that can make massive savings.
We’ve been informed that there are time-limited savings available. We would advise readers wanting to purchase Phentaslim to check the website for real-time pricing.
In general, Phentaslim is a very cost-effective product.
Customers can securely pay using Visa, Mastercard or American Express credit and debit cards. There is no auto-ship program or automatic repeat ordering, which we particularly like.
Overall, we are very impressed with both Phentaslim and its manufacturer, Optimum Nutra Inc. The company clearly associate themselves with their own products on their official website, provide a company address, and follow high manufacturing standards for diet pills. They offer a 60-day money-back guarantee, the returns policy is clear and easy to follow, and all the information is available on the website. The claims the manufacturers make about the product are supported by references to clinical trials and are not outrageous or ridiculous.
As for Phentaslim itself, it appears to have a solid ingredients profile, using appropriate dosages of the active ingredients. Numerous ingredients used in the product have strong clinical support, such as caffeine and green tea. The ingredients used also have a strong safety record.
The product has been around for quite a while, and the number of positive reviews from happy customers that we found are very encouraging. The customer reviews also support the idea that if used properly and alongside a healthy diet and regular exercise, Phentaslim can help to accelerate the consumer’s rate of weight loss.
It’s recommended to take two capsules with a glass of water (8 ounces) before breakfast and another one capsule with water before lunch. The capsule size is similar to other such supplements and so shouldn’t pose any problems taking them.
We do suggest following the manufacturer’s advice and drinking plenty of water when taking Phentaslim, this will ensure you’re hydrated.
There is caffeine in Phentaslim, so it may not be suitable for those sensitive to this ingredient. Actual caffeine comes from a few ingredients, these are:
Phentaslim’s caffeine content:
Caffeine Anhydrous (270mg)
Guarana Extract (22mg)
Green Tea Extract (16mg)
Total approximately: 308mg per daily serving of three capsules, so just over 100mg per capsule. This is the equivalent of a strong filter coffee.
It is recommended adults consume no more than 400mg of caffeine a day, though this really depends on your individual tolerance.
Since caffeine is a great ingredient for weight loss, we would suggest cutting down elsewhere, swapping regular coffee for decaf, black tea for decaf, green, or a fruit infusion. We feel the caffeine in Phentaslim is more beneficial than getting it from a cup of coffee, especially if you’re one for adding cream and sugar, and maybe a donut on the side – something you should really stop doing, to be honest.

Have found these have been helpful for my weight plans. I’m late forties and slowing down a little naturally and extra weight has been creeping on. Truthful is I’m a little too lazy for too much exercise, but these are helping me maintain some activity. I wasn’t expecting miracles so perhaps I’ve met my expectations here. They suit my lifestyle, I guess.
I followed the instructions took the pills at the right time had the water with them.
I had already lost 2 stone before starting on the diet pills my weight had just plateaued .I just wanted my weight journey to be given a little kick.
I took the pills for one month and lost nothing .Very disappointed I will not be wasting any more of my money .
Which is the correct way to take this? On this site it says 2tablets before breakfast and one before lunch. Some say not to take it later than 3pm. On the bottle it says one to be taken before breakfast,lunch and dinner. I have been taking it for nearly 2weeks and haven’t noticed any weight loss. Can you help please.
Hello Lynn. You should always follow the advice given on a product’s label. Information from other people can often be wrong and, as with ours, out of date––we’ve updated our article, thank you for pointing this out.
The book which is supplied mentions intermittent fasting which means no breakfast so how do you take a tablet in the morning before a meal? I’m really confused.
Quite possibly my favourite of all the products I’ve tried. This has helped me lose some weight without feeling like I’m being punished for something!!
I have taken these for a month and had no results truly disappointed after reading positive comments
Is there an age limit to taking this product! I’m 61
I live in England, where can I get these pills?
WHERE ARE THE OTHER CUSTOMER REVIEWS? THE ONLY ONE I CAN SEE IS A NEGATIVE ONE FROM CHE
I have used these on and off this year (one month on, two weeks off, three weeks on, one week off, etc.) and have lost a good amount of weight. It’s come off in bits, and I did some exercise as well. It’s good to do some exercise anyway, I dont understand why people think negatively of exercise. It’s good for you!!
I’m extremely sensitive to caffeine and these pills did nothing for me. I felt no energy and i still felt hungry.
Rubbish! Probably another company lying to stop people buying. If you are sensitive to caffeine why would you buy a product that contains caffeine? That’s like an recovering alcoholic buying 80% vodka!!
Hi there, is there an alternative product that one can purchase in South Africa?
I have a question, due to arthritis I am unable to exercise. Will Phentaslim still help if I stick to a healthy diet? Fiona xx
Well who knows. I am just considering taking the pill myself as too over weight (and the thought of buying new clothes in a smaller size is exciting).I have arthritis but am going to try. I don’t think it will kill me, but not losing weight would mean an earlier death.
Best wishes, hope you decide to take it and your weight goes down, which I think, and hope, help you get the weight off. Best wishes, and good luck!!
I really “Respect” as well as “Appreciate” your Well Researched & “Unbiased” Opinion.I just wished I had read before I ordered “Metan X”[Diet supplement]. Haven’t received yet, But planning to return as soon as delivered. Interested in know your Professional Opinion about this product. I highly Regard your input. Respectfully yours.
Hi I would love to get these pills to lose weight, but is it a safe site
Hello. I had my thyroid taken out and take levothyroxine for my metabolism. Would this work for me?
Hi I’m a 47 yr old female. I have been working out 3 times for the past 3 years. I have lost afew inches here and there but would love to loose some weight. No matter what I try it’s not budging of my belly, thighs & bum. I am 5foot 1 & weigh
I am not a big eater but try to eat healthy(but not every day) my metabolism is very slow as I sometimes dont go to the toilet for up to 2/3 days. Would these pills be good for me or would you recomend anything diffrent?
Do you know if this interacts at all with the contraceptive pill?
Is this just another appetite suppressant? That you have to take it before a meal with a large glass of unpalatable water suggest that it is like the many gelatine stuffed capsules that tout that they help with increasing energy and metabolism
Hi can I take these in the fasting month of Ramadan? When should I take them?
Hi, I am on Lansoprazole stomach acid blocker (PPI) prescription as I suffer from stomach acid heartburn please does anyone know whether this causes acid burning? Heartburn?
Only the majority of diet pills I have tried did make the acid burning worse. Especially Boombod, my God the acid burning came on after day 2 and was so severe I had to stop taking the product.
Any advice would be so greatly appreciated, I mainly want a pill for appetite suppression that works without causing heartburn and stomach acid burning.
Hi, I suffer really bad heartburn also and take emeprazole and have been taking these tablets for a week now and no increased heartburn if I actually think about it I’ve had less heartburn. Hope this helps.
I assume this Product causes all over weight loss. I am a 67 yr old and a small person at 130lbs with only the problem of belly fat / waisted line problem, when I loose weight all over I look kind of gaunt in the face and skinny looking. Do you make any product that target specifically “belly fat storage – and why does the body do this anyway?
Hi, does anyone know if you have to pay monthly for this product? Thanks
Hey Sara, no you don’t have to pay monthly. You only get sent what you pay for when you order, nothing else, they don’t offer subscriptions at the moment.
I was wondering if you can take it if people have hypothyroidism and don’t take medication for it
I am excessively eating more in the morning and during the day I have rheumatoid arthritis and there’s a lot of restriction from Excercises is the product will help honestly
I want to take your product as I am finding it hard to lose weight I am on antidepressants like lexapro clonezapam lamotrigine melatonin compound can this be safe for me or gps don’t believe in herbal medicines so can you help me I am from Australia thankyou as which did not work.
I am on antidepressants like lexapro clonezapam lamotrigine and melatonin is this product be safe for me as I am desperate to lose weight can you advise
Hi Bianca. You really need to discuss this with your doctor. Best thing to do is to take a list of the ingredients from the website and ask them for advice. Don’t ask anyone who isn’t qualified, it’s just asking for trouble. In general, this product contains natural ingredients which means any potential conflict with your medication will be limited. Ask your doctor, please. I was on medication for anxiety and was asked about diet pills (not phentaslim though), I was told the risks would be small if any and that if I took them and felt weird I should stop. I took them, didn’t feel weird but I stopped (because of the price). I’m losing weight the long hard way instead. Less food, more moving.
Has anyone taken this with a seizure disorder?
I am sure many have. Most of them are no longer with us now 🙁
I suggest you take vitamin C with phosphotidylcholine instead. Helps keep your blood thin and reduces fat due to better fat metabolism.
Can this product enter into Malaysia?
I really want to try your product. There was another product called LA-3 & it didn’t have a good review. There was something in it that causes you to have to go number 2 a lot. Heck, I don’t need that. That’s when I seen your product underneath.
I have cardiomyopathy and take Bisoprolol and Ramipril and only drink de caffeinated tea and coffee on doctor’s recommendation. Does this mean I would Not be able to take this product? I am desperate to lose weight and have been advised not to exercise other than gentle walking!
You may wish to try No Thanks I’m Full which is based on isopathic (homeoapthic leptin). It has no stimulants like caffeine. It’s uniquely able to control cravings as well as the other things leptin does. I encourage Kelly Johnson of this site to give me an email so that she can try and review it. I formulated it and introduced it in January, 2013 and while it is non-prescription, practitioners have used it in the weight management/control practices. Hope this helps.
It’s not their product, this is a review site. You can buy the product itself from the phentaslim.com website on the links on this page. I tried it, seems good. Its definitely not autoshipped anyway, the company only sends what you order, if you want more you have to go and buy more.
I would like to try your product
Please advise me i.m on blood pressure tablets 5mg, propranolol 80mg, and citolopran 20mg would I be safe in taking your slimming tablets. Thank you
I had a high systolic blood pressure coming in around 147 for several years. I started taking 1 ounce of Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar w/ the Mother with 4 ounces of Apple Juice and stir it up in a glass. I have half of a bagel then mix up the Apple Cider Vinegar with the Apple Juice and drink it every day. After three months of taking this my systolic high blood pressure is down to 121. This has worked for me and many others. The Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar is only $5 USD. I didn’t want to get on high blood pressure medicine and this really worked. You may want to give this a try. It will knock at least 10 points off of your systolic. Good Luck!
To everyone asking the author questions-
GO SEE YOUR DOCTOR!
You are asking very specific medical questions, and some of them are terrifying to think you’d take medical advice from a stranger online.
Please, please be safe and go in to see your primary care physician before starting anything they haven’t approved.
