Phena-Lean is an “extreme diet aid with fast release technology,” or so says its manufacturer Anabolic Warfare. More to the point, it is a dietary supplement that has been developed as a weight loss aid for dieters and individuals who want to build muscle.

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
- Citrus Aurantium
- Paradoxine Grains of Paradise
- Lean GBB
- 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:
- 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.
XyLEAN promises to help you with appetite suppression, energy and focus. A dietary supplement from Lexona Labs, this nonprescription diet pill has been formulated to assist you in losing weight, increasing energy, and being more focused.
According to the official XyLEAN product page, this diet pill helps you to “lose weight faster than ever before by providing you with “three major keys” to aid your weight loss goals. These three keys include: appetite suppression, water retention and energy/focus.
The company claims XyLEAN helps you to achieve appetite suppression through a Phase 2 Carb Controller its formula contains. According to Lexona Labs, this ingredient helps you to avoid over eating, snacking and cravings while also managing to lower blood sugar and help to block carbohydrate uptake. As for helping with water retention, the formula contains theobromine, which the company says acts as a diuretic to increase water movement, a vasodilator to increase blood flow, and a stimulant for added energy.
That being said, when this XyLEAN review was written, the following were all the ingredients that could be found within its formula: Caffeine Anhydrous, Phase-2 Carb Controller, Beta-Phenylethylamine HCl, Hordenine HCL, L-Theanine, Synephrine HCL, Octopamine HCl, Theobromine.
What you should know is that almost all these ingredients are stimulants, including Caffeine, beta-phenylethylamine HCl, synephrine HCl, hordenine HCl and octopamine HCl.
The second aspect about XyLEAN you should know is that none of its ingredients (or the product itself) has been proven clinically effective at causing or aiding in weight loss. Therefore, even though it does contain several ingredients that are highly regarded in the over-the-counter (OTC) weight loss industry, this does not mean that the product is safe, effective or proven.
In regard to safety, as XyLEAN is chock-full of stimulants, be advised that taking this diet pill could result in unwanted effects, including but not limited to: insomnia, jitters, anxiety, restlessness, mood changes, headache, upset stomach etc.
More importantly, this product combines caffeine, synephrine and octopamine. Both synephrine and octopamine are natural occurring stimulants in bitter orange/citrus aurantium. The FDA has warned that combining caffeine with synephrine can increase the risk of dangerous cardiovascular effects, even in healthy individuals.
While you are likely to get an energy boost from XyLEAN due to its stimulant content, do ensure that you speak with your healthcare provider before taking this dietary supplement as it may not be safe for everyone.
Furthermore, it may also be in your best interest for you to consider choosing a potentially safer alternative tablets for weight loss that do not combine caffeine with synephrine and/or octopamine.
LC20 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.
Seeking extreme weight loss? Prime Labs Thermo Burn claims to provide this benefit by supporting appetite suppression, energy levels and weight loss. Part of Prime Labs’ Elite Series, Thermo Burn has been designed to work with your existing diet and exercise routine to help you achieve results.
At the time that this Prime Labs Thermo Burn review was written, the formula was composed of Green Coffee Bean, Raspberry Ketone, Garcinia Cambogia, Caffeine Anhydrous, Green Tea.
For optimal results, it is always important to take any product as directed based on the manufacturer’s suggestion or as directed by your healthcare provider. For Thermo Burn, the suggested use is to take 1 capsule twice daily, 20-30 minutes before a meal with an 8 ounce glass of water.
The three main ingredients in this formula are caffeine (also found in green coffee bean and green tea), raspberry ketone and garcinia cambogia.
Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant that can raise blood pressure and can also act like a diuretic, increasing the frequency of urination. However, these effects are not typically common in people who take caffeine regularly. It is likely effective for increasing mental alertness and may also help to improve athletic performance. Some research has also found that caffeine may decrease appetite in some people.
Garcinia cambogia is thought to help prevent fat storage, suppress appetite and increase exercise endurance. Although it is not known if these effects occur in humans. As for raspberry ketones, it is thought to help increase the rate at which the body burns fat and may reduce appetite. That being said, just like garcinia cambogia there is no scientific evidence that raspberry ketone improves weight loss in humans.
While it is highly unlikely that you will experience extreme weight loss with Thermo Burn, you are likely to feel its stimulant effects as it contains caffeine, and substance that contain caffeine, green tea and green coffee bean. Although this could lead to benefits such as enhanced mental alertness, it may also lead to unpleasant side effects, such as anxiety, jitters, restlessness, headache, heart palpitations, rapid heartbeat, insomnia, and digestive upset.
Individuals who are sensitive to caffeine, or who consume other products containing caffeine while taking this diet pill, are at an increased risk of these adverse effects.
Be sure to speak with your healthcare provider before taking Prime Labs Thermo Burn, especially if you have an existing health condition and/or are currently taking any medications (prescription or non-prescription) or other herbal supplements.
Xenadrine Ultimate is a dietary supplement designed for weight management support. It promises powerful weight loss and claims to deliver on this promise with a formula containing ingredients that have been scientifically researched. Its primary function is to boost metabolism and help keep you energized.
Xenadrine Ultimate is composed of two different complexes. There is a Weight Loss and Metabolic Intensity Complex (Robusta Coffee Bean, Caffeine Anhydrous, Yohimbe Bark), and a Xenadrine Ultimate Complex (Garcinia fruit, L-theanine, Spearmint Leaf, Autumn Olive Fruit, Ashwagandha Root and Leaf).
The key ingredients in Xenadrine Ultimate are believed to be ideal for weight loss and each has been scientifically researched. For instance, studies have found that green coffee bean (robusta coffee bean) may be an effective fat burner and energy booster. Garcinia cambogia may help with fat burning, appetite suppression and fat blocking. Caffeine may help with appetite suppression, boost mental alertness and can maximize fat burning when combined with physical activity. Ashwagandha is believed to help decrease the stress hormone, which can help prevent emotional weight gain. Spearmint leaf aids in digestion.
Although the official product page for Xenadrine Ultimate does provide links to studies for some of the ingredients it uses in its formula, be advised that none of them have ever been clinically proven effective for producing measurable weight loss.
There is 200 mg of caffeine per serving (2 capsules). Therefore, the full recommended dose will mean you are ingesting 400 mg of caffeine per day, which is slightly more than 4 regular mugs of coffee per day. This much caffeine can lead to an increased risk of unwanted side effects, especially if other caffeine or stimulants are ingested while taking this product. These effects may include: insomnia, sleep disturbances, restlessness, anxiety, rapid heartbeat, headache, etc.
For best results, take two capsules twice per day, 30 to 60 minutes before your two main meals. Use for 60 days with exercise and diet and stay hydrated by drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. Avoid snacking between meals and don’t take the pills within 5 hours of bedtime.
That being said, it is recommended that you first assess your tolerance with Xenadrine Ultimate. For the first 3 days you start taking the pills, only take 1 capsule twice per day, 30 to 60 minutes before your main meals. From day 4 and onwards, if you are tolerating the dose well, you can up it to 2 pills, twice per day.
Prior to taking Xenadrine Ultimate, consider speaking with your healthcare provider. This is particularly prudent if you have an existing medical condition or are currently taking medications.
