PhenQ is a non prescription Phentermine diet pill that has really taken the concept and propelled it into overdrive.
Phentermine (the original prescription only drug) was created in the 1950’s and yet still retains this aura and appeal.
Adipex-P and Panbesy branded versions are much sought after even though they are near impossible to obtain without a doctors prescription anywhere in the world and also have a propensity to cause side effects.
PhenQ on the other hand is a product of the 21st century, it is the invention of private industry and so avoids the machiavellian almost disdainful conduct of the pharmaceutical industry.
According to Bauer Nutrition their Product can help people to slim down and get in shape by enabling them to surmount all the issues that are likely to stand between them and their weight loss goals.
If all the claims Bauer makes hold true, PhenQ should be able to:
- Target existing body fat by triggering the fat burning process
- Support calorie-controlled dieting by providing appetite suppression
- Offer protection against the calories in fatty foods by providing fat blocking
- Help users to stay positive about their diet by providing mood enhancement
- Prevent diet-related fatigue and support healthy exercise by boosting energy levels
In theory such a multifaceted approach to weight loss should deliver good results, and Bauer are so confident about their diet pills they claim they will provide a level of weight loss support that would normally entail the use of several products. Again, looking at the way the pills are designed to work, the theory holds good and the fact that Bauer has decided to back their big claims with a 60-day money back guarantee is enough to make us sit up and take notice.
What’s In It – Active Ingredients
- a-LACYS RESET
- Capsimax Powder
- L Carnitine Furmarate
- Chromium Picolinate
- Calcium Carbonate
The main ingredient, a-LACYS RESET, is a proprietary blend that contains alpha-lipoic acid and cysteine. It’s a relatively new ingredient, but the data provided by the studies conducted so far suggests it is also a powerful one.
The researchers conducting one study recorded weight losses of 3.44% and noted an accompanying 3.8% increase in muscle mass. Their findings are interesting because dieting can often result in a loss of muscle mass. The fact that a-LACYS RESET encourages the opposite effect may make PhenQ a particularly viable dieting option for bodybuilders and other “sporty” individuals who have worked hard to gain muscle and are loathe to sacrifice the fruits of their labour.
Capsimax Powder is also a proprietary blend and with a name like “Capsimax” the fact that it contains capsicum should not come as a surprise. Capsicum can provide appetite suppression, but its thermogenic properties are its main claim to fame and some studies suggest supplementation with capsicum can increase calorie expenditure to such an extent that the body burns calories 12 times faster than normal. The other two ingredients in the blend are Vitamin B3 and black pepper. Vitamin B3 is known to be beneficial for the metabolism, and the piperine alkaloid in black pepper can further support thermogenesis, while also ensuring other ingredients are absorbed more easily.
The roles played by the rest of the ingredients are probably more supportive in nature, but the overall benefits offered by the blend as a whole appear to support the claims Bauer makes for PhenQ.
- L Carnitine Furmarate is an amino acid that can enhance the mood
- Chromium Picolinate can help balance blood sugar levels and stimulate fat burning.
- Caffeine provides an energy boost, improves concentration, and also has value as an appetite suppressant
- Calcium carbonate and nopal are fat blockers that assist weight loss by offering protection against dietary fats (a common cause of weight gain)
Some typical customer comments read:
Are There Any Side Effects
Negative issues are unlikely, but Bauer states that their product is unsuitable for certain user groups: People who are under 18, individuals with existing health problems, anyone who is taking medication, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding a child
The Bottom Line
Bauer Nutrition make some big claims for PhenQ, but the formulation contains some powerful ingredients that should be more than capable of delivering the promised results. Customer reviews also suggest the product can change lives (and waistlines) for the better. We would be highly surprised if anybody needed to claim against the money back guarantee, but it’s good to see one in place. In our opinion PhenQ leads the market.
Buying Options, Where To Buy
At the time of this review it was only possible to purchase from the official website. It is likely this will remain the case because Bauer takes a hands-on approach to marketing all of their other products and this is a habit they are unlikely to break.
Each bottle of PhenQ contains a 30-day supply of pills. The RRP varies from country to country – there are translations of the site into German, French and Spanish
Bauer offer generous discounts and, at the time of this review, it was possible to buy for just £26 / $38 / €35 per bottle if the buy 3 get 2 free offer was taken up – there is also a 30 day money back guarantee and free shipping.
