The marketing for Stimerex-ES is full of crazy claims. It is said to be a fat burner, an appetite regulator, an energy booster, and a diuretic. The explanation for how the product works is then absolutely caked in psuedo-scientific language that is designed to baffle the reader. But the biggest issue we have is with the boast that Stimerex-ES contains a banned ingredient. How on earth is this a selling point? It just spells danger to us. The money-back guarantee is also problematic, as it isn’t actually a money-back guarantee.
There must be a reason, but it all looks a bit tricksy to us! We look into Stimerex-Es to find out more.
Stimerex is a stimulant made from a blend of natural leaves, herbal extracts, citrus fruit extracts and caffeine.
This does not mean that this supplement is safe because most of the ingredients have a stimulant effect that will impact on your heart even if it only makes it beat faster. If you suffer from any cardiovascular problem this could be extremely dangerous.
We don’t really believe in the much advertised leaves of this supplement. Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals are a well-known supplement manufacturer and if these leaves were the “real deal”, the FDA would have pulled this product months ago. Of course, we have no way of knowing exactly what they are and as with the legal high alternatives to illegal drugs; they may actually be more dangerous for health. Of course, they may be safe but we just don’t know.
The stimulant ingredients may cause nausea, jitters, headaches, racing heart, etc.
One bottle costs $39.95.
Stimerex-ES is a fat burner that offers rapid fat and weight loss. It is marketed by Nutra Source LLC, an American company based in Boise Idaho, and the supplement is manufactured in the USA by Hi tech Pharmaceuticals.
With the claim of being one of the strongest fat burners available and including 25mg of leaves, Stimerex-ES looks like a hard hitting diet pill and stimulant which may help you lose weight.
The manufacturers, Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals, are based in Georgia, have been around since 1994, and manufacture a wide range of supplements for private labels.
Other Hi Tech products include Lipodrene – also advertised as containing controlled ingredients, a fat burner and energy enhancer.
Stimerex-ES contains a long list of ingredients including yohimbe, phenylethylamine and synephrine, all stimulant ingredients, which can increase the heart rate and raise blood pressure, making this supplement unsuitable for many people.
The advertising focuses mainly on the claims of containing 25mg in their diet pill and we cannot really understand how or why the sale of this supplement is allowed.
The FDA carried out a blanket ban of all these products in 2004 because of the strong risk to health.
There is no real information about how to take Stimerex-ES. You are advised to “try it today and see the fat melt away” but you are not given the recommended dosage per day or the best way to take these pills. Each bottle of Stimerex-Es contains 90 capsules so it seems like that taking three pills per day is the way to go, and not too close to bedtime.
According to the US Dept of Health and Social Services,
studies and systematic reviews have found an increased risk of heart, psychiatric, and gastrointestinal problems, as well as high blood pressure and stroke….
Away from the various types of stimulants contained in Stimerex-ES, there is not much of anything else. This supplement is all about delivering a stimulant effect!
Despite the stimulant claims and the ingredients list which confirms that this supplement does contain stimulants, you are not given any warnings regarding side effects and whether this supplement is suitable for you.
If you have any type of heart condition, for example, you do need to avoid this supplement, but the product information does not mention this fact.
The Stimerex-ES advertising makes a fair number of wild claims that don’t really add up. These are the principle features taken from the website.
According to the advertising;
Stimerex-ES is for people who are looking for one product to serve as a fat burner, energy booster, appetite regulator, and natural diuretic.
We can’t understand why anyone would be looking for a product to make them urinate more; there really is no sense in doing that.
Losing water weight may show up on the scales, but it leads to dehydration and does not relate to losing fat.
The advertising also states,
A unique property of Stimerex-ES lies in its ability to target and burn fat in the most stubborn areas (the hips, thighs and buttocks)!
This is simply misleading, because you cannot target weight loss from certain areas. When you lose weight, you lose it from all over your body and not just from the areas you choose.
You can tone the muscles in certain areas of your body with bodybuilding or resistance training, but you cannot get this effect from a diet pill.
The language of the Stimerex-ES website is easy to understand and simplistic – that is until we get to an explanation of how the supplement works. Then fake science kicks in and leaves most of us baffled.
Here is an example:
Stimerex® ES formula includes 25mg Thermo-Z extract, Hi-Tech’s 1,3 dimethylamylamine, phenylethylamine alkaloids, green tea extract (EGCG), and the xanthines theobromine and caffeine as beta-2,3 adrenergic receptor agonists to promote increased breakdown of fat into fatty acids and glycerol –otherwise known as lipolysis – and the mobilization of fat along with promoting increased metabolism, all of which leads to the accelerated burning of fatty acids that enter the bloodstream from improved lipolysis and fat mobilization
Confusing to say the least!
It might work a bit. After all, the customer reviews for the leaf free Stimerex were mostly positive. However, this is not the same product, and without a clear ingredients profile or any customer feedback, it is hard to say what it will do.
We don’t like the fact that this supplement contains potentially dangerous ingredients which may cause heart problems. We also don’t like that fact that this supplement is advertised as containing an illegal substance without any explanations. We just aren’t convinced.
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.

Stimerex-ES is marketed as a stimulant. It contains the following ingredients but the ingredients profile is not very clear. Each serving size equals one capsule.
We have taken this information from the label.
Proprietary blend (510mg) with Thermo RX and Extended RX Technology. (Thermo RX and Extended RX Technology is never explained).
The lack of ingredients amounts contained in this supplement is a matter for concern. However, you may expect stimulant side effects including:
There are no warnings or directions given by either the manufacturer or Nutra Source LLC. We cannot provide any real life customer experiences either because we have been unable to find any genuine customer feedback.
Do not take if pregnant or breast-feeding. Avoid if you suffer from a cardiovascular condition or have high blood pressure. Avoid if you are taking prescription medication because of interactions.
We have been unable to find any customer reviews for this product at the time of writing.
Despite an advertised guarantee that states that Nutra Source “offer a 60 day conditional money-back guarantee unless otherwise specified”, the small print goes onto say,
PRODUCTS THAT ARE OPENED ARE NON-RETURNABLE AND NON-REFUNDABLE, NO EXCEPTIONS
There is also a 15% minimum re-stocking fee on all unopened products. This does not sound like a proper guarantee to us and advertising a 60-day guarantee creates a very misleading impression. The guarantee is only useful if you order the product and DON’T USE IT!
You can buy Stimerex-ES direct from the Nutra Source website. One 90 capsule bottle costs $39.95 and you can make savings on larger orders. Six bottles (540 capsules) costs $185.70.
Standard shipping is free on all orders to the USA. Nutra Source does not ship outside the USA. Stimerex-ES with the leaf ingredient is not available via Amazon.com either. If you are an international customer, you may be out of luck with this one.
Our overall impression of Stimerex ES is that this company employs some very tricksy marketing.
The supplement is advertised as containing a banned and controlled ingredient, there are some unbelievable statements about how weight loss works, an inadequate ingredient profile and a next to useless guarantee.
Add to this the real health concerns about some of the ingredients of these capsules, and it leads us to one easy decision and that is to reject this supplement.
