Described as one of the strongest fat burners, StripFast 500 Platinum RX is a diet pill that is aimed at people who have tried fat burners before, and are now looking for something stronger. The focus is on stimulants and this supplement contains caffeine and high levels of bitter orange extract (synephrine).
But, is it safe to take? We reveal the potential side effects you may encounter with this dietary supplement.
We take a look at Stripfast 5000 Platinum RX to find out more.
With claims that this is a “professional weight loss product” counterbalanced by a very basic looking website, StripFast 500 Platinum RX appears to be sending out mixed messages. These British diet pills do not look anything like a premium product, and the fact that it is hard to find it anywhere on sale apart from eBay adds to this downmarket impression.
We have never seen a diet pill that had a filler ingredient as its major ingredient but that is the truth about StripFast Platinum RX.
Most of the usual type of diet pill ingredients are in inadequate quantities – such as Guarana and Green tea and at this level unlikely to do anything at all. However, at 200mg per dose, the Bitter Orange Extract is high and may cause side effects.
We cannot really see how this supplement will help you lose weight. You probably will notice a caffeine buzz within a few minutes of taking – comparable with drinking a couple of cups of coffee.
Common side effects may include nausea, heart palpitations, elevated blood pressure, increased heart rate, headaches, gastrointestinal problems, insomnia, jitteriness, and anxiety.
You can buy StripFast Platinum RX direct from the product website. One month’s supply of 30 capsules costs £29.95 per bottle, so this supplement is not too expensive.
StripFast 500 Platinum RX is a diet pill that is aimed at people who have tried fat burners before, and are now looking for something stronger. The focus is on stimulants and this supplement contains caffeine and high levels of bitter orange extract (synephrine).
Unsurprisingly the supplement comes with plenty of warnings because these ingredients will not suit everyone. We covered Bitter Orange extract in a previous Watchdog report and were alarmed about the potential side effects it can cause. Take a look at our synephrine ingredient article to find out more about this dangerous ingredient.
Leaving the health concerns aside, according to the product advertising, there are four key benefits to StripFast Platinum RX. It is described as:
Losing weight by taking stimulants can help promote weight loss short term and although it is not a healthy way to lose weight, it can be effective. Making you feel too stressed to eat does reduce your appetite and the idea is that you use the enhanced energy to move about more, making any training or exercise regime more effective.
However, stimulants can increase heart rate and blood pressure, so is potentially dangerous for some people.
StripFast 500 Platinum RX does not come with any clinical evidence or links to prove that it works, but taking stimulants to lose weight is so well known in the diet industry most people will take it on face value that this supplement will do what it claims.
Strip Fast is a British company based in Lancashire. The company’s full address is StripFast, International Business Centre, Hill House Business Park, Thornton Cleveleys FY5 4QD.
We investigated the address and found the Hill House Business Park, which appears to be a standard industrial estate.
However, the International Business Centre did not appear so this business is probably a lot smaller than the name suggests.
As well as StripFast Platinum RX, StripFast sells other products around weight loss and beauty. These include Lipo RX a fat burner aimed at enhancing mental and physical stimulation and containing amino acid L tyrosine and Strip Shake Super Lean – a meal replacement diet shake which contains whey protein.
In addition, StripFast market a peroxide free teeth-whitening kit described as an “Essex style” professional whitening kit and tapping into the TOWIE craze despite the Lancashire location.
As well as the diet pill, you are encouraged to follow the Free Strip Faster Diet Plan and to take the 30-Day Challenge Pack to monitor results. All this sounds great but product information does not include any details.
StripFast Platinum RX does not come with much product information. One of the major selling points is the:
“100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE – All StripFast 5000 weight loss support products (Diet Shakes and Diet Pills) come with a LIFETIME, no questions asked, money back guarantee. Love them, or get a full refund.”
When it comes to the supplement, according to the sales pitch;
“Each Platinum RX capsule contains the very latest ingredients, delivered in the perfect dosage to ensure a rate of fat loss you never thought possible.”
That sounds great but what does it really mean? After all, how do the advertisers know what we all consider to be an acceptable rate of weight loss?
However, StripFast Platinum RX is the strongest diet pill produced by the company. The product information states that:
“This is StripFast 5000’s strongest ever formula. Specifically designed for people wanting to SUPERCHARGE their rate of fat loss and reveal lean mass definition as quickly as possible.”
No, we don’t think it will work as suggested. You may lose some weight initially but once your body becomes accustomed to the stimulant effects this weight loss is unlikely to continue. We are extremely concerned about the Bitter Orange content and cannot understand why the principle ingredient is Dicalcium Phosphate because this does not have an application for weight loss.
StripFast Platinum RX is a fat burner diet pill. Each capsule equals one dose, which you take once a day.
Yes, side effects are highly possible and the product website places a prominent warning. However, we could not find any customer feedback so cannot bring you any true-life experiences.
Common side effects may include:
It may increase the risk of:
Although this supplement is available on numerous websites including eBay and Gumtree, it does not appear to be on sale in the shops or on Amazon and as a result, it is impossible to find any feedback other than comments from our readers received below.
Yes, there is a money-back guarantee and it looks very good. According to the information:

You can buy StripFast Platinum RX direct from the product website. One month’s supply of 30 capsules costs £29.95 per bottle so this supplement is not too expensive.
You can buy bundles of packages from StripFast for a reduced price. For example, the “Ultimate FatBurn” package comprising of:
StripFast are also looking for people to sell their products and offer sales packages, which look pretty good. These are straight retail opportunities and not MLM marketing or pyramid selling.
There are two levels of resellers. Junior Resellers – Individuals who wish to sell products in their spare time to generate an additional income, usually to friends, family, etc.
Premium Resellers- Individuals who have their own business (sunbed shops, salons, gyms, or even a normal shop), or people who are self-employed (hairdressers, nail technicians, personal trainers, beauticians, etc).
You can also but StripFast Platinum RX on various auction and sales sites including eBay and Gumtree.
Prices vary. One eBay seller is offering a multi-package (1 bottle of StripFast Platinum RX plus the fat burner, LipoRX, for £45.00
StripFast Platinum RX is not available directly to customers outside the UK.
We are not very impressed with StripFast Platinum RX. Although the company look reasonable and offer a good-looking guarantee, the ingredients contained in the capsules are a major concern and may cause side effects. Bitter Orange extract is potentially dangerous and we cannot understand why Dicalcium Phosphate is the principle ingredient because it does not have an application for health or weight loss.
At £29.95 for 30 capsules, we feel that this supplement does offer good value for money and although the reseller’s package looks reasonable, we do not feel that this supplement will actually work. At the end of the day, that is a major consideration.
We cannot approve this supplement, so we do not recommend Stripfast 5000 Platinum RX to our readers.
