Phenamax capsules are a weight loss supplement that has an official website, from which the manufacturers claim that customers who have used this product have lost from 10 to 25 pounds within the first month of use. It also states that weight loss is maintained when the user continues to take this product for a period of 3 to 5 months.
Among the key ingredients within the Phenamax formula is green tea extract. This is among the most common substances found in over the counter diet products because some studies have shown that it can boost the rate of the metabolism. Unfortunately while this may be true, many nonprescription product manufacturers fail to take the care needed to actually use enough of this ingredient that it aligns with the studies that have shown that it can be effective. Therefore, all too frequently, green tea extract products are too weak to actually produce any beneficial effect for weight loss.
Moreover, as green tea extract is such a common primary ingredient, it would take a lot for Phenamax capsules to be able to stand out from among its competition. In order to do this, it has also added yerba mate, guarana, cha de bugre, and citrin to the formula. Some of these ingredients contain stimulants. Considering the fact that green tea also contains a stimulant – caffeine – individuals who are prone to adverse reactions to this type of substance, may want to speak with their doctors before taking the pills. Side effects to stimulants are similar to those experienced if you have too much coffee to drink, such as headache, jitters, insomnia, or even a rapid heartbeat or palpitations. For this same reason, it is advised that other caffeinated products be avoided while using this diet pill.
The official website offers a free fourteen day trial of the product for $1. It is recommended that this offer be accepted with care, however, as the company does collect your credit card information in order to charge the dollar for the Phenamax. If the product is not returned within two weeks of the original order date, you will be automatically enrolled in the auto-ship program and your credit card will be charged $69.95 for a month’s supply of the pills (very expensive when compared with other products with similar ingredients), which will be mailed to you. This program* will continue every month until the program is cancelled.
The directions for this product are that two capsules should be taken every day with a minimum of 8 ounces of water.
*Buyer BEWARE! Auto-ship and auto-billing programs like the one described above are often very difficult to cancel. Many people have to resort to cancelling their credit cards just to stop being billed by these companies. You should try to avoid programs like these at all costs, even if their prices are low.
