Stripfast 5000 Platinum RX
StripFast 5000 Platinum RX is described as one of the strongest fat burners in the UK market, and comes with a guarantee of results or your money back. That sounds good, but some of the ingredients in this diet pill are a matter of concern.

We take a look at Stripfast 5000 Platinum RX to find out more.

Stripfast 5000 Platinum RX Overview

What you need to know about Stripfast 5000 Platinum RX

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.

What are the side effects of Stripfast 5000 Platinum RX?

Common side effects may include nausea, heart palpitations, elevated blood pressure, increased heart rate, headaches, gastrointestinal problems, insomnia, jitteriness, and anxiety.

How much does Stripfast 5000 Platinum RX cost?

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 5000 Platinum RX Key Features

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.

Stripfast 5000 Platinum RX Key Points

  • Company based in Lancashire
  • Each bottle contains 30 capsules (one month’s supply)
  • Available on sale via the product website and eBay

Leaving the health concerns aside, according to the product advertising, there are four key benefits to StripFast Platinum RX. It is described as:

  • One of the UK’s strongest fat strippers
  • Fast acting (within 20-30 minutes)
  • Advanced appetite control and metabolic stimulation
  • Keeps your body in the fat burning zone for hours

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.

How to Take Stripfast 5000 Platinum RX

  • Take 1 capsule per day, mid-morning
  • Drink 2 litres of water per day minimum

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.

Stripfast 5000 Platinum RX Concerns

  • Some of the ingredients may cause dangerous side effects
  • Expensive and does not offer value for money
  • Will StripFast really honour the guarantee?

Stripshake SuperleanAs 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.

What does Stripfast 5000 Platinum RX claim to do?

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.”

Does Stripfast 5000 Platinum RX work?

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 5000 Platinum RX Ingredients

StripFast Platinum RX is a fat burner diet pill. Each capsule equals one dose, which you take once a day.

  • Bitter Orange Peel (200mg): Also called Synephrine or Citrus Aurantium, this stimulant raises the heart rate, increases blood pressure, and is often billed as a way to increase the metabolism in place of banned substance ephedrine. This has made it an ingredient in some weight loss pills because increasing the metabolism is a shortcut to weight loss. However, bitter orange is not safe when taken in supplement form and can cause heart palpitations and a whole range of side effects. It has been linked to causing heart attacks and strokes. Source
  • Trimethylxanthine (pure caffeine) (220mg): caffeine can be effective as part of a weight loss diet because it raises the speed of the metabolism. However, results are not usually long-lasting because the body soon becomes accustomed to the effects. An average cup of instant coffee contains around 100mg of caffeine so this supplement delivers the equivalent of 2 cups of coffee. Source
  • Green tea Extract (45% EGCG) (150mg): Green tea contains the antioxidant, ECGC which is a potent polyphenol with numerous medical benefits. Reports have shown that green tea extract intake is associated with increased weight loss due to stimulating thermogenesis. Contains caffeine. Source
  • Maral Root (50mg): This plant extract comes from a meadow plant found in Russia and Eastern Europe. Animal studies suggest that it may help memory function and mental ability but this ingredient lacks evidence from human studies and side effects are unknown. Source
  • L-Tyrosine (50mg): This amino acid is present in meat and a “normal” diet unless you are a vegetarian. Anecdotally it is believed to improve training and exercise performance. L Tyrosine is an androgenic, which means that it stimulates adrenaline and this function can help reduce the appetite by making you feel too “keyed up” to eat. Some people find this makes them feel “sick with nerves.” Others have no problem See our previous article on L Tyrosine. Source
  • Guarana Seed (12mg): Natural South American berry, which contains caffeine, Guarana. is a common component of diet pills because of its stimulant effect but here in only minimal quantities and unlikely to do much.
  • Dicalcium Phosphate (binder) (400mg): This binder ingredient is commonly found in breakfast cereals and toothpaste and is the principle ingredient of this supplement.
    It does not appear to have an application for weight loss and it can cause gastrointestinal side effects. Source
  • Chromium (40mcg): There is no evidence that taking this trace mineral in supplement form will help promote health or weight loss. Medical advice is to avoid chromium supplements because we obtain adequate chromium from diet alone.

Stripfast 5000 Platinum RX Side Effects

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.

  • Elevated blood pressure
  • Increased heart rate
  • Headaches
  • Gastrointestinal problems

Stripfast 5000 Platinum RX Customer Feedback

Where To Buy Stripfast 5000 Platinum RX

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 Platinum RX Fat Burners (1 month)
  • StripShake Super Lean (lasts 3+ weeks) costs £29.97

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.

Watchdog Verdict

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.

  1. I have had these pills for 5 months. At the beginning, my weight is over 80kg, but now it is amazing to say that I have a nice BMI index with nearly 65kg. Thank the pills.

  2. Hi there I ve been using the stripfast 5000 for a month now no side effects but also no weight loss either. I train four times a week so thought these pills should have some kind of effect. So I moved up to the next range and after 3 weeks of taking I ve put on well over half a stone not impressed at all with these tablets. All I would say is eat right, exercise and you will be fine

  3. I started 23/04/16 weight 70k . 2 shakes a day , 1 rx pill mid a.m. One chick or salmon salad leaves. Have lost three kilo &feel elated at least 2 lites water, but no exercise! l did travel &missed drinks &rx all day & ate bread. I experienced awful indigestion under shoulder, for 2 days. I then ate Sunday dinner. & now returned to diet ,lost akilo. Time scale 23 days. Water essential, no further problem. Age 78

  4. Started taking these on day 3 my body started to burn up and i got panicky and my skin came out on red patches and my heart was racing not be taking these again so scarry

  5. I have taken these for 4 days. On day for 4, after 20 minutes of taking a pill my face felt very hot and puffy, I looked in the mirror and was bright red. I quickly took some anti histermines. Red blotches appeared on my arms. I came over faint and panicky. My heart was racing and felt quite scared. Obviously not everyone is going to react like this. Be aware that this happened on the 4th time of taking them.

  6. Hi. Bought the pills week ago. I feel great. No side effects at all. I sleep well, have more energy, no tummy ache or headache.
    I normally drink galon water a day – so this I still continue.
    I take a pill after healthy breakfast and don’t feel hungry or don’t have carving for all day.
    I can see my body lost few inches and I am happy about it.
    My weight is 57 kg now and I am trying to get 3kg down.
    So the pills might not be great for some of you but if you able to try then why know…you decide.

  7. Hi everyone.

    So I have just brought these and after reading some reviews, I am pretty scared of taking them.
    I really want to lose weight and I find it hard because I get hungry pretty quickly and I just want it all to go.

    What doesn’t help is being 19 years of age and 17st. It’s unhealthy and my last hope is to lose weight using some kind of supplements. I am going to be honest, I will be taking these tomorrow morning to see what they’re like. I hope I get no side affects and I am one of the lucky ones to have no side affects and losing weight like no mans business haha.

    I will let everyone know how I got on tomorrow night!

  8. Well over tried every diet pill you can think of alongside dieting but I will never ever take these again! I’m not a drama queen but I had a severed reaction to these day 1 I was fine day 2 ten minutes after taking I had this trendies pain in my stomach I got lightheaded and dizzy and threw up! Next minute my skin felt like it was on fire I was boiling ! Only for one of the girls in work to see me and panick because I was covered head to toe in hives and a rash !! Had to get friend to run to chemist to get antihistamines just to get rid of reaction ! Like I said I’ve taken other things before and had headaches and jitters ect but never ever been as scared as I was after reacting to these ! I don’t advise them at all ! After I took on day 1 with no reaction I thought I’d be fine but clearly not ! I was lucky I was in work as if I was in my own who knows what could have happened !!!

    I took from May-December 2014, I did lose weight and was the happiest I’d ever been with my appearance.
    However. Upon stopping, I developed major anxiety and depression and have been on anti-depressants ever since. I cannot warn against these enough. It is not worth the weight change.

  10. Hi there folks not every diet suites everyone I bought pills and now have the shake I had no side effects and lost a few inches! Any pill or shake u have to drink 3 to 4 litters a day!! Hence the headaches sickness and dizzy spells but like I said not for everyone for a healthier option I am now on bulk healthier and nicer!!

  11. I started taking them a few days ago. Appetite is definitely suppressed but have been feeling awful. Was sick the past 2 days and feel faint.

  12. I have been taking strip fast 5000 for just under a month I thought it was safe as I bought from amazon I have had no side effect iam on lots of strong medication due to other Heath problems I would recommend this but to me I can’t do any working out so thought I would give this a go I will be honest I myself have had no side effects what so ever apart from can’t sleep now and then but I have lost weight in under a month I have went down 1 dress size and I still have half a bottle left I take one pill every morn after breakfast and I don’t feel hungry for rest of the day but at night as it’s wearing of I start to feel really hungry but normaly I will just have a small bit of toast or bowl of cereal but iam luck if I have 200 calories aday an iam sure as a woman I should be having 1200 calories not a lot of food iam worried about problems because iam on other strong medication but because iam losing weight I don’t want to stop them and I got them off amazon was suppose to be £30 but on sale for under £10 to me this is worth it but please I don’t advice anyone to take these pills as side effect may happen but me personally I have had none as yet but I will continue to take these as long as my weight keeps coming of to I reach my weight goal now and again I may take a shake so iam getting something I buy asda own diet shake cost 3 pound and it’s less calories than slim fast also THIS IS A MUST DRINK LOTS AND LOTS OF WATER IF U DONT THIS WILL CAUSE PROBLEMS with any diet pills drinking water is a must 1 thay won’t work and 2 helps water retention


    I had a severe allergic reaction to these. I’m no drama queen but I was on the verge of calling 999. Within minutes I came out in hives, was breathless and my heart was racing!

    Had I not had a friend with me who was incredibly calm in my crisis I’m sure I’d have panicked more.

    She had me drinking copious amounts of water to try and flush whatever I was reacting to out of my system, and stayed with me till she thought I was safe to be alone. I was left with the world’s worst headache and exhaustion but scared to sleep!

    I have never been so frightened for my life … no diet pill is worth what I went through!!

    They’re now in the bin and I’ll go back to the tried and tested method of dieting … everything in moderation!

  14. Hi I’m on my second week of taking one a day, I’ve only lost 4 lbs but I’m getting a little scared as I’m waking up with headaches & feeling sick. Not griping pains but some sort of rumbling at the bottom of my tum my appetite has reduced but still don’t know if to keep going and hope the headaches an that go away or stop I’ve never taken slimming pills b4 but middle age spread an all that I can’t keep it off like I used to ????

  15. I have taken 1 of these strip fast 5000 capsules and feel faint, have been having jitters and also slight blurred vision. I purchased two months supply and will be sending them back. Not worth the risk or the side affects.

  16. I’m on day 1 of taking the strip fast 5000 platinum fire pills! They have made me feel miserable, no energy what so ever! 🙁 complete opposite of what it says on their site!

  17. I started on these about 2 weeks ago and surprisingly they’re working a treat. I’m drinking lots of water with them and my appetite has gone down loads (which I hoped for) I’m taking 4 throughout the course of the day along with eating well and gym everynight. The weight is coming off easily. I’ll continue to use them until I’m at the weight I want to be.

  18. I have tried strip fast 5000 and felt terrible on them nausea, dizziness, head not my own, shaky, stomach cramps,headaches had to throw them away

  19. I have been taking strip fast 5000 for 3 days, I have lots more energy not craving food but feel thirsty a lot so drinking lots of water and I am sleeping normally, I feel like I will loose weight as not snacking and eating a lot less and as I said loads more energy! I am very wary about taking things like this and have never taken any diet pill before!

  20. I also purchased Stripfast 5000 strawberry shake, from amazon. I have to admit i have had no side affects and it does seem to be working as part of a good diet and exercise plan. As above i take note of your review, but i wonder if the issues described are mainly associated with the Pills?

  21. I purchased from amazon the stripfast 5000 and the strawberry shake. I personally find them to be excellent and do not have any side effects. As well as taking these tablets I drink at least two to three cups of cuppachino’s and have had absolutely no problem sleeping. I take your advice under consideration but as so far every thing is fine and I am losing weight.

  22. They are now selling it on Amazon, and it has 34 reviews from about 3 weeks. The same reviewers also all reviewed a protein shake. The chances of that happening are miniscule, so I am pretty sure the reviews are all fake.

    1. To add to my comment – they reviewed those two products on the same day and that other product has the same number of reviews as the diet pill.
