Pro Supps have released a metabolism boosting diet pill called Vexxum, which is described as having a ‘True One Cap Daily Dose’, although customers can take as many as four capsules per day as required.
Below we take an in-depth look to see just how effective Pro Supps Vexxum really is, and judge whether a one capsule per day dose can really aid significant weight loss.
Pro Supps Vexxum is described as an ‘Intense ultra-concentrated thermogenic metabolizer’ that also provides appetite control and mood support, as well as long lasting energy. Vexxum is manufactured by Pro Supp, an American company based in Texas.
They state: ‘Our Company’s vision is to encourage healthy living through exercise, diet and supplementation. We will create products specific to this vision, and provide the tools for all ProSupps customers to reach their personal health and fitness goals.’
Directions for use are as follows: As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule per serving. Do not exceed 4 capsules per day. Consult with your physician prior to using this product. Vexxum should not be taken within 4-5 hours of any other stimulants or caffeinated products. Vexxum should only be used on an empty stomach after assessing tolerance.
The manufacturers of Vexxum make the following claims about their product:
ProSupps’ new fat burning miracle is now here with Vexxum. This truly one capsule serving thermogenic will prime your body for optimal weight loss. By combining the same powerful three stage caffeine blend that is found in ProSupps’ infamous Mr. Hyde pre-workout with both mood support and appetite control ingredients, they have managed to produce an all-around fat shredding pill.
The combination of trademarked ingredients such as TeaCrine™ Theacrine and Cocoabuteral™ Cocoa Seed Extract with other caffeine sources will provide your body with endless energy and fat melting potential for the whole day with just the one pill dose.
The ingredients listed below are a part of a proprietary formula, and so whilst we know the total quantity of the ingredients used in this diet pill, no individual quantities are provided. One serving consists of a single capsule, and contains 627 mg of the active ingredients. Consumers can take as many as four capsules per day.
Proprietary blend: 627 mg per single capsule serving.
There are numerous stimulant ingredients that may increase the consumer’s metabolic rate, which would lead to an increased rate of weight loss. These include numerous sources of caffeine, as well as hordenine and theobromine. Octopamine also boosts the body’s metabolic rate but is not a stimulant.
Sulbutiamine is thought to treat fatigue, which can be useful for consumers who are exercising regularly. Rauwolfia vomitoria root is used for numerous different purposes, but is still under-researched in relation to weight loss. Generally, it has been noted as a side effect in other clinical studies of the plant.
Lotus leaves have been used traditionally to treat obesity, but there is no clinical evidence in humans to support this. However, Vexxum uses lotus seeds, which have never been studied or used for weight loss purposes.
All supplements carry the risk of some side effects, although some are safer than others. Below we take a look at the potential side effects of some of the active ingredients used in Pro Supps Vexxum.
Rauwolfia Vomitoria is a toxic plant originally from Africa. When processed properly, it can have some therapeutic uses, but the list of potential side effects is significant: it can cause decreased heart rate and blood pressure, which is due to dilatation of blood vessels. It also causes low sex drive, increased appetite, weight loss, swellings, stomach upset, hallucinations, poor co-ordination, dizziness, impairment of physical abilities and psychotic depression.
Yohimbe can cause a wide range of side effects, including stomach upset, excitation, tremor, sleep problems, anxiety or agitation, high blood pressure, a racing heartbeat, dizziness, stomach problems, drooling, sinus pain, irritability, headache, frequent urination, bloating, rash, nausea, and vomiting. High doses can cause more severe effects.
There are several different ingredients that are likely extracted from bitter orange extract, such as Hordenine. Side effects associated with the use of Bitter Orange components include increased heart rate and increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, fainting, and even heart attack and stroke in healthy patients.
The Mayo Clinic has recommended avoiding use of Bitter Orange and its extracts because in their opinion, the risk of using the product is not worth the pay-off of some weight loss that could be achieved using other means. Consumers should remember that the effects of the stimulants found in Bitter Orange are enhanced when combined with caffeine.
Significant quantities of caffeine can cause side effects such as headaches, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations and problems sleeping. There are three different sources of caffeine in this diet pill, making it likely that each capsule contains a high dose of caffeine.
Not for use by individuals under the age of 18 years. Do not use if pregnant or nursing. Keep out of reach of children. Do not consume this product if you have a medical condition and/or taking any prescription medication. Do not exceed recommended servings. Do not use this product if you are at risk of or are being treated for high blood pressure, kidney, thyroid or psychiatric disease, anxiety, depression, seizure, enlarged prostate or stroke. Before beginning any supplement or training program always consult a physician first. Not suitable for anyone who is sensitive to stimulants including caffeine.
There are a few reviews from customers at bodybuilding.com. Most reviewers here tend to have an excellent body fat percentage, are incredibly active, and are looking for products to refine their bodies further. Generally, those who review products on bodybuilding.com appear to be regular users of supplements to enhance their workouts.
I was given the chance to log Vexxum and was VERY happy with the results. By keeping my diet (mostly) in check and working out 6 days a week, Vexxum helped me lose 11lbs over the course of a month. That’s right, from 233 down to 222lbs! The energy and sweat from Vexxum is the real deal. Appetite suppression was there some days, some days not. But, as you can tell from my avatar, I have a pretty healthy appetite. I never went with more than 2 caps a day and had these great results. I’m a believer, Vexxum is a step above most weight-loss supplements here on BB.com!
Great product that provided me with some great results. Dropped 4 lbs while on this product and felt a great energy from the caffeine also.
this product is amazing and it makes me feel great i love that i only need to take one capsule per day!! prosupps has done it again!
So far this has been an awesome thermogenic. Clean energy I can utilize to the max and I love the true 1 capsule serving.
The few reviews that have been left for this product are all very positive. Many of the customer comments mention that one capsule a day is enough to make a difference, whilst another reviewer stated that he never took more than two capsules per day. Whilst customers can take up to four capsules per day if they wish, it appears that this is a strong product that provides noticeable results when used in conjunction with a strict diet and regular exercise.
The ingredients list contains a number of different ingredients that may increase the body’s metabolic rate. These include hordenine, octopamine, theobromine, three types of caffeine, and yohimbe. Most of these, with the exception of octopamine, are stimulants, which could have a large range of potentially serious side effects, as detailed above. There are also a few ingredients that could reduce fatigue, which would be useful for those who are exercising regularly as a part of their weight loss regime.
Whilst this product does seem to be strong and effective, customers should pay attention to the warnings label on the product, and follow the cautionary guidelines provided- whilst a diet pill containing strong ingredients will be more likely to yield results, it is also more likely to cause unpleasant side effects.

Pro Supps Vexxum appears to be a strong weight loss product. Based upon its strength and the number of different stimulant ingredients, we would not recommend it to anyone who is sensitive to stimulants including caffeine, or anyone who has not used a stimulant based fat burner before. It is also not suitable for anyone unwilling to stop drinking caffeine whilst taking the product.
There is a huge list of potential side effects that could occur from using Vexxum, and so customers should pay close attention to the cautionary list provided by the company explaining who should not use this product. No individual ingredient quantities are provided, and so it is very difficult to establish just how strong the product is, as well as how likely side effects are.
The price of Vexxum is hugely variable, with it costing three times as much to purchase from the official manufacturer’s website compared to the cheapest third party distributor we could locate. There is no money back guarantee offered for the product.
It is clear that Vexxum is not a fat burner suitable for beginners: whilst it may be highly effective, it is also a strong product that carries a high risk of side effects. In general, we do not recommend this product to our readers.
For readers who want to try this product, we recommend taking caution and using the minimum suggested dose, ensuring the product is not taken on an empty stomach and ensuring that all other stimulants are avoided whilst using this diet pill.
