Below we take an in-depth look at Revex-16 to see how effective it is as a weight loss aid.
Revex-16 is manufactured by Scitec Nutrition, and is sold across Europe. The company is based in Hungary, but there is little other information available about them or their philosophy.
The company do provide contact details on the official website.
It’s advised to begin usage with 1-2 caps 1-2 times daily to assess stimulant tolerance. Build up to a maximum of 3 caps twice a day on an empty stomach first thing in the morning and in the afternoon. Cycle usage: 8-12 weeks on, at least 2 weeks off. Avoid any other sources of stimulants while on! Contains 200 mg of Caffeine! Stack only with non-stimulant ingredients like L-Carnitine.
Revex-16 is described as a stimulant diet pill that can contribute to the control of bodyweight, body fat and sense of hunger.
The manufacturers make the following statement about Revex-16:
REVEX-16 is a stimulant weight and bodyfat management complex. It provides 16 ingredients, including Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) from Garcinia Cambogia Extract, and Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) from Green Tea extract and it can contribute to the control of bodyweight, bodyfat and sense of hunger. REVEX-16 contains Chromium that contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism and to the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels.
The product has the following benefits:
Revex-16 contains a proprietary formula, and so the individual ingredient quantities are not generally listed. The official website states that each serving of 3 capsules contains 13.8mcg of chromium picolinate and 2165 mg of the proprietary formula. This includes 220 mg of caffeine, which is roughly the same amount found in two large cups of coffee.
The ingredients used in Revex-16 are listed below:
Citrus Aurantium is a known stimulant, but despite the manufacturer’s claims that it is side effect free, actually can cause a wide range of side effects, and has a questionable safety status.
Caffeine is a well-known stimulant, which mildly increases the body’s metabolic rate, although its effects are not significant. Green tea may aid mild weight loss when taken in sufficient quantities, but its effects are still considered to be relatively small.
Resveratrol may have anti-oxidant benefits to general health, but there is no confirmed link between it and weight loss. Dandelion is a diuretic, and so may cause initial weight loss from increased urination.
Being mildly dehydrated can make muscles seem more prominent, and this ingredient could also help to reduce bloating. Both these factors would give the impression of weight loss, even though it is not a permanent effect.
The studies that have investigated Garcinia Cambogia have had mixed results, with one study finding that the placebo group lost more weight than the Garcinia cambogia taking group, demonstrating that it appears to be an unreliable ingredient at best.
There are numerous potential side effects that could occur when consuming the ingredients used in Revex-16.
Side effects associated with the use of Citrus Aurantium 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 Citrus Aurantium 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 Citrus Aurantium are enhanced when combined with caffeine.
Caffeine can lead to headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness and insomnia.
Bioperine increases the absorption rate of many ingredients, including caffeine, and so may make the side effects of these ingredients more likely or worse. Consumers who are taking medication are also more at risk of overdose because of this higher absorption rate, and so should consult their doctor before taking any product that contains bioperine or pepper extracts.
Garcinia Cambogia can cause nausea, stomach cramps and headaches. Side effects of Hesperidin include stomach pain and upset, diarrhoea, and headache. Inositol can cause nausea, tiredness, headache, and dizziness.
Don’t use if you have any physiological or mental medical condition, take any medications, or under the age of 21.
Also avoid if pregnant or nursing.
This product contains an absorption modifier that could affect your medications. Consult your physician before use!
Keep out of reach of children!
Don’t exceed the recommended daily dosage!
Do not use this product if you have any cardiac related health problems, including high blood pressure.
Diabetics should consult their doctor before purchase, as some of the ingredients may affect blood sugar levels.
In general there seems to be a lack of detailed customer reviews of Revex-16. There are several shorter reviews of the product, although they do not reveal much about their experience with the product. For example, none mention how much weight they lost, if any, and fail to state whether they experienced any side effects or not.
At supplements-online, there are three customer ratings, one at 5 stars, one at 4 stars and one at 3 stars. Only one review is in English and states:
I didn’t see any results
There is a wide variety of ingredients that are present in Revex-16. There are some that seemingly have no direct link to weight loss, such as Hesperidin, Quercetin and Inositol. Bitter melon and Resveratrol may indirectly affect weight loss because of their effects on blood sugar levels, but at this time there is no clinical evidence to support this.
Dandelion is merely a diuretic, which does not affect fat mass in the body, but merely aids weight loss temporarily by removing some water weight.
Garcinia Cambogia is at best an unreliable weight loss aid, with studies being incredibly mixed about how it actually affects the body. Green tea, chromium picolinate and caffeine all seem to aid weight loss, but their effects are considered to be small. Bitter orange extract is much stronger, but comes with a much higher risk of unpleasant and even dangerous side effects. Bioperine may make some of the more active ingredients in this diet pill more potent.
However, overall, it seems unlikely that Revex-16 will aid significant weight loss. Without knowing the individual ingredient quantities it is difficult to establish just how much of each of the fat burning ingredients is present, and so the diet pill’s strength cannot be determined. There is also a long list of potential side effects that could occur whilst using this diet pill.
Revex-16 can be bought from numerous European online retailers, servicing a number of different countries.
Amazon’s UK website has numerous sellers of the product, with the cheapest offering the product for £25.76, with free shipping.

There is no money back guarantee for this product. Revex-16 is sold by numerous different online retailers, each of which will have a different returns policy. Consumers should consult the individual terms and conditions of their chosen retailer before purchasing the product.
With a lack of information about the manufacturer, and no individual ingredient quantities provided, there is a lot that is unknown about this product. The company who makes Revex-16 do not sell the product direct from their official website, and so the product is not covered by any money back guarantee. However, the product seems to be cheap in general, and is sold at numerous reputable European retailers who specialise in diet pills and body composition supplements.
The ingredients list contains a lot of ingredients, as reflected in the products name. These ingredients are mixed, with some being well-regarded fat burners and weight loss aids, whilst others such as Garcinia Cambogia are likely present because of their popularity, rather than their actual fat burning potential. There are also some ingredients that have no proven links to weight loss, but may benefit the consumer in other ways such as improving alertness, lowering blood glucose levels, and improving insulin resistance.
Overall, we do not know enough about the product’s actual composition to accurately rank this diet pill’s effectiveness. This is not helped by the lack of detailed customer reviews. Therefore, we cannot recommend Revex-16 to our readers.
