These fast diet pills claim to offer the following benefits:

  • All day energy

Support Your Weight Loss Goals with Registered Trademark Ingredients

When this Phena-Lean review was created, this diet pill was supposedly designed with fast release technology and a superior blend of ingredients that delivers powerful, all-day energy to help support an individual’s weight loss goals.

  • Vitamin B3
  • Phena-Lean Blend

The Phena-Lean Blend, which consisted of 596 mg per 1 capsule serving, was composed of these ingredients:

  • Caffeine Anhydrous
  • Di-Caffeine Malate
  • L-Theanine
  • Citrus Aurantium
  • L-Tyrosine
  • Theobromine
  • Ginseng
  • N-Isopropylnorsynephrine
  • Paradoxine Grains of Paradise
  • Lean GBB
  • Rauwolscine
  • Huperzine A

According to the official product page for Phena-Lean, Paradoxine and Lean GBB, two trademark ingredients, trigger thermogenesis and lower body fat to help the user sweat, burn calories and drop water weight.

Meanwhile, caffeine anhydrous, Di-Caffeine Malate and L-theanine boost focus, blood flow, energy and metabolism while at the same time lower fatigue and upset. Studies have found that caffeine can help to improve cognitive performance, mood and alertness.

Additionally, the manufacturer credits N-Isopropylnorsynephrine with breaking down fat for energy and Bitter Orange for promoting weight loss by lowering appetite and increasing metabolism.

Phena-Lean Side Effects

The suggested dosage is to first assess your tolerance by taking 1 capsule in the morning with food. After you have assessed your tolerance, you can take an additional capsule before lunch. That being said, users are cautioned not to take more than 2 capsules per day.

The reason that users are cautioned to first assess their tolerance is that Phena-Lean contains multiple stimulant ingredients, including caffeine and synephrine. Although stimulants can help to increase energy, metabolism and mental focus, they can also increase the risk of unwanted side effects, such as:

  • Jitters
  • Restlessness
  • Anxiety
  • Headache
  • Mood changes
  • Digestive upset
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • High blood pressure

Due to the ingredients in Phena-Lean, it would be in your best interest to avoid this product if you are sensitive to stimulants or if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in the formula. Additionally, if you have a known medical condition, if you are currently taking medications or herbal supplements to treat a health condition or you are pregnant, nursing or trying to become pregnant, you should speak with your healthcare provider before using this diet pill.

LC20 Lean Cuts

LC20 Lean Cuts ReviewLC20 Lean Cuts is a dietary supplement from NG Nutra. Containing a blend of ingredients, its formula has been designed to help in every aspect of getting lean and ripped with extreme focus and energy. Helping you to achieve your fat burning goals at a faster rate it claims to offer benefits, such as fat incineration, metabolic enhancement and mood support.

When this LC20 Lean Cuts review was created, the formula was composed of three complexes, each containing multiple ingredients as follows:

Mental Focus, Energy and Metabolism Boost Complex: Caffeine Anhydrous, White Willow Bark Extract, Yohimbe HCL, Capsimax®, Huperzine A, Choline, Advanra Z, L-Carnitine Tartrate, N-Acetyl L-Carnitine HCL, L-Theanine. This complex supposedly helps to create the ideal combination for ultimate fat burning, energy and concentration with no crash.

Estrogen and Water Retention Complex: Dandelion Root, Diindolylmethane, Uva Ursi. These ingredients supposedly work together to help reduce water retention and help balance hormone levels by decreasing estrogen levels.

Insulin and Thyroid Complex: Potassium Iodide, Chromium Nicotinate Glycinate Chelate (TRAACs). These ingredients are believed to help make sure that thyroid output is supported and also helps to regulate healthy blood sugar levels.

The suggested use is to take 1 capsule in the early morning on an empty stomach and 1 capsule every afternoon on an empty stomach. Each capsule should be taken with 12 ounces of water. Users are instructed to first assess their tolerance levels by starting with 1 pill the first day to see how their body responds before taking the full 2 capsule daily dose.

While there is no denying that LC20 Lean Cuts contains a variety of ingredients, many of which are well known in the over-the-counter weight loss diet pill market, there are a few drawbacks to this dietary supplement.

For starters, there are far too many ingredients within the formula for each of these ingredients to provide any significant benefit. Secondly, this diet pill contains a notable amount of caffeine, with 395 mg of caffeine per 2 capsule serving, which is about equal to 2 to 4 eight-ounce cups of coffee. While this amount of caffeine can be tolerated by many healthy adults, those with sensitivity to stimulants may want to avoid taking LC20 Lean Cuts.

Moreover, even if you are not sensitive to stimulants, you may still increase your risk of unwanted side effects, such as jitters, anxiety, sleeplessness, heart palpitations, etc. if you ingest other caffeinated foods or beverages while taking this diet pill.

Finally, none of these ingredients have been scientifically proven effective or safe for managing your weight or causing weight loss. What’s more, if you find that you do rapidly slim down from taking LC20 Lean Cuts, there’s a good chance this is due to the loss of water weight, as this product does contain a few diuretics including dandelion root and uva ursi. Water weight will return.

You would be wise to consult with your healthcare provider before taking LC20 Lean Cuts.

Justice Nutrition Melted

Justice Nutrition Melted ReviewJustice Nutrition Melted is a thermogenic that has been designed to help curb your appetite to provide you with clean focused energy throughout the day without causing a crash or jitters. Melted Thermogenic is a product from Justice Nutrition and is made in the USA.

When this Justice Nutrition Melted review was created, the formula was composed of Sodium, Caffeine and the Melted proprietary blend: Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT), Bitter Orange, Dynamine, Yerba Mate, GBB-EEC, Theanine, Vinpocetine, Rauwolscine, Huperzine A 1%.

For optimal results, the suggested use is to take 1 capsule in the morning with food. It is recommended for users not to take more than 2 capsules per day or within 5 hours of bedtime.

Of all these ingredients, the two that have received a lot of acclaim from the manufacturer are MCT and Dynamine (Methylliberine). According to the official product page, MCT helps lower cholesterol, lowers blood sugar levels, improves brain and memory function, boosts energy and endurance, and improves weight management. Dynamine, on the other hand, supposedly increases energy, elevates mood, intensifies focus and works quickly.

That said, while all these benefits were listed, there were no studies provided to backup these claims. As such, there’s no proof that these ingredients provide these benefits. Moreover, even if studies do exist, a few study results are not enough to prove the efficacy or safety of an ingredient.

This product does contain stimulants. More importantly, it contains both caffeine and bitter orange, which has a natural occurring stimulant known as synephrine. While these stimulants are relatively harmless on their own, when they are combined, they can cause serious side effects, even in healthy individuals. The reason is that synephrine functions as a catalyst for caffeine, which means that it enhances its effects, both good and bad. Therefore, the combination has the potential to raise blood pressure and can even cause fainting, stroke and heart attack.

Due to the fact that Justice Nutrition Melted has both of these ingredients within its formula, it would be best to avoid taking this product altogether. There are other safer thermogenic diet pill products available that might be a better option without the added risk.

That being said, if you really feel that Justice Nutrition Melted could offer you the right support for you weight management efforts, do consult with your healthcare provider before taking it. This is especially important if you have an existing health condition, are currently taking any medications, or are pregnant or nursing.
