Abrexin is a nonprescription diet pill that is marketed as having been developed to help people to lose weight more quickly and easily. It is meant to be used in conjunction with a diet and exercise routine, although the claim is that it will be effective even without an eating program that is highly restrictive or having to complete strenuous exercises.
The manufacturers of this pill say that the majority of the weight loss benefits of this pill actually occur while the dieter is sleeping instead of while he or she is awake. This means that while moderation is observed during the daytime, at night, the focus is on obtaining at least 8 hours of sleep and taking Abrexin to make sure that the weight will come off more quickly and easily.
The idea behind the product is that the distress in the body from failing to achieve an appropriate level of rest causes the metabolism to slow down, making it harder to burn fat. Therefore, the pill was created to encourage better sleep while increasing the metabolic rate so that more fat is burned while the dieter is sleeping.
In addition to the elements of the formula that are geared toward fat burning, it also includes substances that are commonly found in over the counter sleep aids, such as valerian root and melatonin. This is meant to help to encourage a more restful and complete 8 hours of sleep. Indeed, clinical studies have suggested that when people have a better sleep, they find it easier to lose weight, so the real question here is whether or not this product could have any more effect than a (much cheaper) over the counter sleep aid.
The manufacturer of Abrexin says that it uses non-stimulant fat burners that have been clinically proven. Among them, the primary ingredient is lactoferrin under a trademarked ingredient name, ThermoFerrin. It also contains BioPerine black pepper extract, which is known to help the body to better absorb the ingredients of a formula for a greater effect. These are the only two active ingredients within the product.
While it is very promising that the manufacturer provides not only the list of ingredients, but also their amounts, it is unfortunate that they don’t actually identify the research studies to which they refer. There are graphs and claims but no reference to the methods that were used, who conducted the study, how many people were involved, or how long the study ran.
