Hoodiadrene is a nonprescription diet pill that claims to be the solution that dieters are seeking to help them to eliminate their weight loss struggles. It is yet another supplement product that has jumped on the unproven hoodia bandwagon.
Although the main ingredient has yet to be shown in clinical study on humans to be safe and effective when it is taken in a pill, perhaps this product stands out from the others that have failed to live up to their promises. To understand whether or not this may be the case, it is important to have a closer look at the complete formula, as well as the experience of using this product, as a whole.
The ingredients in Hoodiadrene’s formula include: hoodia gordonii, as well as green tea extract, synephrine in the form of ADVANTRA Z, cocoa extract, acetyl L-tyrosine, yerba mate (20 percent caffeine), dl-methionine, ginger root, quercetin, fisetin, DMAE, and grape seed extract. Immediately, it is clear that beyond the hoodia in this product, it is greatly based on stimulants, as it contains many powerful ones such as synephrine and yerba mate.
This should cause some dieters to take greater caution before choosing Hoodiadrene, as it means that there is a risk of uncomfortable side effects, such as jitters, anxiety, sleeplessness, and others. Also, the FDA has released a warning about synephrine, as it has been associated with some powerful and unpleasant side effects. The hope is that further study will provide greater information regarding whether or not it can be safely used and, if so, how.
The product is clearly powerful enough that the directions on the package recommend easing into its use over time to help to lower the risk of strong side effects. For the first ten days of use, the user is directed to take 3 capsules at a time, three times per day (for a total of 9 capsules). They should be taken a half hour ahead of meals. If that amount causes side effects, though, the directions recommend knocking back the number of pills to two capsules, three times per day.
If the full amount is taken, at 9 pills per day, that means that the 50 capsules in each container will last for only 5 and a half days. At the reduced dose, it will still only last for just over 8 days. This means that, at best, a month’s supply will cost 143.82, but if the full dose is used for the first ten days, it will cost a massive $168.52.
For a diet pill that is based on unproven ingredients and that comes with a risk of uncomfortable side effects, a price tag like that seems very difficult to swallow.
