Slim Bomb is a nonprescription diet pill that is by no means new to the industry. It is made by a manufacturer called Slimming Solutions and it has been sold for about a decade. The company refers to this product as an herbal product, as it brings together a combination of various natural ingredients.
Trimdextra is another over the counter weight loss product that claims to be the best option available for dieters to lose extra fat more quickly and easily. This one is a newcomer to the marketplace, having only been released in 2013. It is nonprescription and is available for purchase online.
BURN XT is a thermogenic fat burner for both men and women who are seeking increased fat loss, appetite suppression, increased energy and who want to burn more calories. It is produced by Jacked Factory and claims to contain science-backed ingredients.
4Life Carb BLX is a weight loss pill that is available over the counter, with claims that it will stop the body from being able to digest fat. Though simply looking at the name would suggest that this is a carb blocker, when the marketing literature for this product is consulted, it is clear that it is meant for stopping fat absorption.
This is a rather confusing situation as the name of the product and its function don’t seem to align. This indicates that the product was strategically named to draw attention to itself in the popular low-carb dieting market, despite functioning differently, or perhaps it was once a carb blocker that was reformulated to be a fat blocker instead.

Atrafen is a thermogenic weight loss aid from Nutratech that has been developed to work as a powerful fat burner and appetite suppressant. According to the manufacturer’s website, when this Atrafen review was written, the product offers a “comprehensive, multi-system approach to weight loss and appetite suppression” while at the same time preserving muscle, boosting energy and increasing focus.
Atrafen has been designed for both men and women and supposedly “ignites extreme thermogenesis” without causing jitters. This dietary supplement works on both the mind and body to help users burn fat, improve their energy levels and stay motivated.
The ingredients in the Atrafen formula when this review was created were a part of a 600 mg Proprietary Formula. This formula was composed of Raspberry Ketone, African Mango Extract, Acai Fruit, Green Tea Extract, Resveratrol, Caffeine Anhydrous, Apple Cider Vinegar, Kelp, Grapefruit.
To start, none of these ingredients have ever been scientifically proven to cause weight loss. Although the manufacturer did not make this claim, it is important to point this out to eliminate any assumptions you might have about this OTC diet pill.
That being said, Atrafen does contain caffeine, which can be beneficial at enhancing mental focus. Improved mental focus could help support your weight loss efforts. While it will not directly cause you to drop excess pounds, when your mind is sharp and alert, you are more likely to make better dietary choices and may feel more motivated to keep up with your exercise commitments. Moreover, caffeine may help to maximize your fat burning potential when it is combined with exercise.
Still, any benefits that caffeine or any of these other ingredients may potentially provide, will only be of use to you if you follow a healthy diet that is reduced in calories as well as follow a regular fitness appropriate exercise plan.
For optimal results with Atrafen, take 1 pill twice per day, 30 minutes before meals with 8 ounces of water. That being said, although the directions did not specify which meals, it would likely be best to take the pills with breakfast and lunch. The reason is that this product does contain caffeine. Taking it with dinner or too close to bedtime could negatively impact your sleep, especially if you are sensitive to this stimulant.
Speaking of caffeine, also keep in mind that it can cause other unwanted side effects, some of these may include jitters (in spite of what the manufacture may claim), restlessness, anxiety, headache, upset stomach, etc.

MetaboUP Plus is an “exclusive thermogenic blend” that comes from the Obesity Research Institute. An energy enhancing supplement, this non-prescription diet pill boosts metabolism and assists with weight loss by helping to speed up the body’s calorie burn.
Supposedly it helps to facilitate weight loss by promoting thermogensis. This is a metabolic process, which causes the body to burn calories to generate heat. Theremogenesis is induced by diet, exercise and environmental temperature. The belief is that it can benefit weight loss because it gives the body’s calorie burn a boost. Continue reading

Metabolife Green Tea is a diet product that is manufactured by Metabolife International. That company manufactures a range of different supplements under its brand name and is based in San Diego, California.
The company recently underwent a number of legal struggles that came from some false claims that had been made by the company’s founder, and from certain activities by the company to conceal evidence from the Food and Drug Administration, with respect to ephedra, which had previously been a primary ingredient in another product manufactured by this company called Metabolife 356. Ephedra is illegal for use in weight loss and many other supplements in the United States as it has been associated with many powerful side effects and has been linked with at least one death.
