OxyMax is a thermogenic fat burner that is produced by Performax Labs. Dieters who are looking for long lasting energy and all day appetite suppression may be keen to try this over the counter weight management aid as it is advertised to provide these benefits as well as improved thermogenesis, mood enhancement, and limit fat growth.
A Thermogenic Formula
The OxyMax ingredients when this review was written included the following:
- Caffeine Anhydrous
- Eria Jarensis Extract
- B-Phenylethylamine HCl
- Hordeum Vulgare
- Paradoxine Grains of Paradise
- Nelumbo Nucifera
- Coleus Forskohlii
- Black Pepper
- Rauwolfia Vomitoria
OxyMax does contain thermogenic ingredients including Caffeine, Eria Jarensis, hordenine (hordeum vulgare), and phenylethylamine, all of which are stimulants that can boost metabolism. That said, while this may help a person to get the most out of their exercise, none of these ingredients have ever been proven effective for weight loss.
The suggested use for this product is to take 1 capsule immediately after waking up on an empty stomach. After assessing your tolerance, a second tablet can be taken 6 – 8 hours later. No more than a maximum of 3 capsules should be consumed in a day. It is also recommended for sensitive users to take the capsules with food.
OxyMax Is Likely to Cause Jitters
Like many of the top rated weight loss pills that you’ll find in the OTC weight loss market, especially those dedicated to thermogenic enhancement and fat burning, OxyMax contains caffeine. More specifically, it contains 250 mg per 1 capsule serving.
This is concerning, because even though it is recommended that you first assess your tolerance, the maximum dose is 3 capsules per day, which would be a total of 750 mg of caffeine. This is far above the 400 mg daily dose that the FDA says is not generally associated with dangerous or negative effects for most healthy adults.
On top of that, OxyMax has combined caffeine with other stimulant ingredients, further increasing the risk of unwanted side effects from jitters and insomnia to anxiety, rapid heartbeat and beyond.
Due to the high stimulant content in OxyMax, it would likely be best to avoid taking this diet pill, especially if you have a medical condition. However, if you are not sensitive to stimulants and feel that it might be okay for you, it is still important that you first run your interest in taking this product by your doctor before you try it.
