Phytodren looks to be all style and no substance. The website looks good on the surface, but when you dig a little deeper it just seems to through lots of confusing advertising copy and pseudoscience at you. The ingredients may well be stimulating, but they are ultimately underwhelming. There is a money-back guarantee though, but the product is pretty expensive in the first place.
The most shocking thing about Phytodren is that they have failed to indicate the proportions of ingredients you would actually be buying. There is no indication what amounts are recommended to take anywhere on the website. This could be a deliberate ploy, as with other pills of this type they normally don’t include enough of the ingredients that have been shown to have any effect on weight loss.
By not listing the exact amounts of Phytodren, it is simply not possible to determine whether anything that they claim is even achievable.
Ask yourself why they fail to list the exact composition of Phytodren Diet Pills!
As the ingredient quantities aren’t actually listed, it is impossible to tell if side effects can occur. We would recommend caution though, just in case.
The recommended retail price was a ridiculous $129.95, but is now $69.95 for one month’s supply of 60 capsules – which is still pretty expensive.
The first thing that strikes us when landing on the website is that they have gone for a darker and, it’s fair to say, a much sexier look. Immediately, a big picture of the bottle jumps out at us, along with a sexy scantily clad lady. Rather strange from the Mormon brotherhood to feature things that go against all their morals, but sex sells, as they say. So let’s not let morals get in the way of making lots of money, shall we?
We took a long around to try and find some contact details. There is the usual phone number to the sales people in Utah, which was not answered when we rang, as well as the chat box that only seems to operate during west coast business hours. Again, no luck as we tried early morning, east coast time.
Notice of Contact Information
If you should have any questions or concerns regarding the arrangements of the Terms, or should wish to speak to a representative of Company for any reason, please contact us at any of the following:
It seems they haven’t added a valid phone number, and the only contact point is the email, so no physical address whatsoever! This is one of the worst things about these diet pill sites. It is as if they are deliberately trying to make it as hard as possible to track them down.
So far, we have the usual setup used by these companies, so let’s take a closer look at the product and what it is claiming to do.
In massive red letters that jumps off the page at you we have:
Lose Serious Weight Fast! Or Your Money Back Guaranteed
Wow, the copywriters have been in good form coming up with that one, by using “serious” rather than a number, they are giving an unquantifiable amount! They could have used “stacks” or “mountains” as they are the same type of word, it’s designed to trick you into thinking you will lose massive amounts of weight without actually saying how much. Jedi mind tricks from these guys again.
The guaranteed part is very clever as well, they are offering the money-back guarantee (which is great) but it is referring to the previous phrase, “Lose Serious Weight Fast”, good luck in proving what sort of amount “serious” is and what time scale “fast” fits into. Whose definition?
Moving on we have some nice bullet points:
So it’s claiming to be a fat burner, an appetite suppressant and a metabolism booster all in one. We’ll need to look closer at the ingredients to check this out.
Moving further down the sales page, this time they have gone for the bamboozle tactic! This is a deliberate attempt to deceive the reader by waffling on in semi-scientific tones in order to confuse the hell out of you. This way they are not really claiming anything but appearing to know what they are talking about.
It starts off with the same old thing we see on all these sites by this same bunch of diet pill sellers:
Finally after years of scientific research and developments in modern science, the key to long term weight loss has been revealed
What an absolute load of tosh, they make this same claim on other products they produce that contain different ingredients!!! The same dodgy claims with no evidence, a similar design and the exact same people behind it!
In a word: NO.
There is zero evidence presented that Phytodren could possibly work. You have no idea what exactly you are buying and in what composition, so it is impossible to make an informed decision.
There is no evidence at all presented, instead they are relying on the power of the sales page to coerce you into buying.
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.

This time instead of some dubious claims about patent pending ingredients they are again using the pseudoscience claims:
“Phytodren contains 5 ingredients designed to mimic C-A-R-T Activation and NP-Y Inhibition”
Wow, they really pushed the boat out with that claim, let us say here that this is total rubbish, with zero scientific research or clinical studies proving that these 5 ingredients in this combination have any effect on weight loss.
So what are these magic ingredients?
No studies have been done either into the effectiveness of Phytodren or if there are any side effects from ingesting the mix that they have come up with. There could possibly be long-term damage to the body; at this stage it is impossible to say one way or the other.
By deliberately not listing the quantities of the ingredients used in Phytodren, it is not easy to see whether there could be any detrimental side effects.
There are some testimonials listed on the sales page, and each one has a pretty-looking person next to it; this is a clever psychological effect to make you think that you could look like this as well.
BUT… at the bottom in small writing they have a disclaimer:
While the testimonials are from real people based on real experience, the pictures used are stock photography.
This just gets worse. They are legally covering themselves by saying this, but does it make it any better?
On paper, the guarantee looks good. You have 90 days to try the product and then return for a refund, minus shipping costs. Be wary of the way in which you purchase your Phytodren box from though, as the money-back guarantee may only apply from the official website.
Phytodren only seems to be available online. They are using a payment processor owned by Doakes Nutraceuticals LLC based in the diet pill scam capital of the world, Utah.
Doakes Nutraceuticals LLC is hidden behind a proxy owner, which coincidentally is the same one as Gadd Formulas LLC.
There are also a number of fake review sites that review Phytodren, but the same people control them all in order to give fake reviews.
With possibly one of the most confusing sales pages we have looked at, when you start to break it down, there is simply nothing to recommend about Phytodren.
It’s full of pseudoscience and clever manipulation techniques designed with only one thing in mind: to get you to part with your money. The total lack of contact details for the company, as well as a lack of proper information about what you are buying, has disaster written all over it!
In this situation, it’s definitely a case of “Buyer Beware”.
There are no clinically studies on this product or none cited on the official website for the ingredients used in this supplement.
Taking just two capsules per day will mean your 60 capsules will last a full 30 day (months) supply.
One capsule has 100mg of caffeine, so taking the maximum dosage of 4 capsules per day means a fairly hefty 400mg of caffeine intake – the same as 3-4 strong coffees! This means if you aren’t a regular coffee drinker then you are likely to suffer from jittery side effects, increased heart rate, elevated blood pressure and potentially insomnia.
The other ingredients in Phytodren if taken in the recommended servings should be safe and not cause side effects.
7 Amazon customers (all Amazon verified purchasers) give Phytodren a very poor rating of 1 out of 5. The feedback is fairly common with all 7 customers saying the product didn’t work for them.
Apparently this detox supplement helps you lose 10lbs in just 3 days! If it does work, it will most likely be water weight that is lost as most of the ingredients in the proprietary blend are diuretics, meaning you will be going to the toilet a lot!
We have made no secret of our dislike for these types of supplements, read our article on detox diet pills here.
With this in mind, your free bottle(s) of 3-day detox may not be such a great thing after all.
The manufacturer does sell Phytodren via Amazon.com although shipped and stocked by eSupplements Amazon store. Prices on Amazon are slightly cheaper than the official website but you may need to check with the seller if the guarantee is still applicable.
The recommended retail price was a staggering $129.95, but now still a fairly costly $69.95 for one month’s supply of 60 capsules. Discounts are available when purchasing two or more boxes at a time. For example. two boxes (2 months supply) works out at $124.95.
Be aware that there are shipping costs applicable depending on where you are ordering from.
