Hoodiadrene is a nonprescription diet pill that is marketed for weight management and claims to provide metabolism support for both men and women. It is also advertised as having a “complete scientific formula.” Created by Newton-Everette Neutraceuticals, LLC, it is yet another supplement product that has jumped on the unproven hoodia bandwagon.
The trouble is that hoodia has barely been studied on humans to determine its safety and efficacy as there has been only one study of this herb done in people. That said, it may be that this particular hoodia product might stand out from the others that have failed to live up to their promises, due to the other ingredients within the formula.
To understand whether or not this may be the case, however, 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 Hoodiadrene Formula
When this Hoodiadrene review was written, the formula included:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin B6
- Pantothenic Acid
- Cocoa Seed Extract
- Yerba Mate Extract
- Grape Seed Extract
- Advantra Z Extract
- N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine
- DMAE Bitartrate
According to the manufacturer, Z-Plex is a thermogenic that has the ability to help burn body fat without muscle tissue loss and boost strength and energy. It supposedly works with visible results without dangerous side effects.
The suggested use is to take 3 capsules (one serving), 3 times each day, for the first 10 days. It is recommended for the pills to be taken 30 minutes prior to meals. If this dosage is well tolerated, after the initial 10 days, users are instructed to reduce their dose to 2 capsules, 3 times daily. However, if after the first 10 days, 9 capsules per day prove too much for a user’s individual metabolism (e.g. they lose weight too quickly), they can take 1 capsule, 3 times daily. It is also recommended that those using this diet pill follow a regular diet and exercise program “to make Hoodiadrene work even harder!”
In spite of the claims that the manufacturer has made about this product, there is no scientific evidence to support them. Even though many of the ingredients have been clinically researched, none of them have been proven or approved as a weight management treatment.
Also, Hoodiadrene contains 45mg of caffeine per 3 capsule serving. This means that for the first 10 days when you take 9 pills, you will be receiving 135 mg of caffeine per day from these pills. While this likely isn’t enough caffeine to bother those who are not sensitive to stimulants, it is worth noting that the suggested use recommends taking the pills before meals. As such, your last serving will be before dinner. Taking caffeine this close to bedtime may be problematic for some users and could disrupt their sleep or result in insomnia.
Ultimately, Hoodiadrene is just another unproven hoodia diet pill product. Nonetheless, if you are keen to give it a try, first consulting with a healthcare professional is recommended.
