We come to an understanding that the only thing that makes a fat burner better than others is not the amount of ingredients it has but simply does it work in a safe way or not. And so far Phenadrine has been promoted on the market that it’s the leading pill in weight loss. After several enquires we recently received. We decided to put Phenadrine to the assessment and see if it really does what it says. We also considered to put the value of reference PhenQ fat burner in the comparison chart. Simply because in 2015 it got #1 best seller fat burner in UK, therefore it is used as a parameter to our rating.

- The mechanism of action and potency of ingredients.
- Impact on the physiologic function and potential weight loss.
- Possible side-effects and frequency level of each.
- Independent user review and their feedbacks based on minimum one month usage.
- Where to buy and availability on the market

A More Detailed Review on Phenadrine
We understand that you simply can not find an ideal diet pill every thing has a downfall and it really depends on the individual’s goals to determine and decide which fat burner he/she should go for. Phenadrine was very clear on that we have all the hardcores stimulants you can think of in one pill. And that you should deal with that. Which we find a good honest way to market their product and not twirling around with the safest pill. However they didn’t mention how hardcore are their stimulants…
The label on bottle states it is the ‘World’s strongest diet and energy aid’ and while we think this is exaggerated, there is no doubt that APS Phenadrine contains strong ingredients that are known for causing health problems and FDA warned about these ingredients many times.
We find it’s very important to be aware of standard-setting of fat burning mechanisms and intense workout initiators. And so far where science is concerned, without any commercial nonsense Phenadrine has nothing to do with the fundamental premiss of working with the physiologic body function. What it simply does. it enforces external stimulants on the normal body function which disrupts the normal physiological and psychological functions and this can get initial great results on the first week with positive and optimistic feedback. BUT unfortunately when any chemical that works against the natural human functions and totally relays on extrinsic stimulants. It backfires!
The body simply goes into the defensive mode, providing high tolerance rate to stimulants and Phenadrine at that time, is as good as inhaling air but with side-effects.
Each ingredient if analysed in a solo state, Phenadrine contains 6 active ingredients (that worth the mention):
Caffeine: is a stimulant that may temporarily support lipolysis, the breakdown of fat. Caffeine aids in fat loss by speeding up the bodies metabolism. As the body metabolizes caffeine, the breakdown of fat happens, this process decreases the amount of fat stored throughout the body. What is also agreed upon is that caffeine, a mild diuretic, will cause you to lose a little water, thus making the number on the scale go down. A more potent effect on weight loss is its ability to increase energy use in exercise. But saying this without even considering the adverse effects which cannot be denied might put users on moderation of this element.
1,3-Dimethylamylamine (DMAA): is structurally related to the amphetamine class which commonly includes prescription drugs such as Adderall and Vyvanse, the amphetamine class is also a CNS stimulant. DMAA as of June 2012 was no longer being used as a supplement ingredient by supplement manufacturers (after issue of an FDA warning letter). Due to it’s major side-effects on the heart and chest. Thus all products were withdrawn from the shelves of retailers in the USA and major countries in Europe.
Acacia Rigidula Extract (leaves) (200mg): Acacia rigidula is a shrub that grows in parts of Texas and Mexico. And BMPEA, which is related to the stimulant drug ephedrine, is the latest speed-like chemical to taint dietary supplements, researchers say. In 2004, the FDA banned the stimulant Ephedra after it was linked to fatal strokes and heart attacks, heart palpitations, seizures, and psychiatric problems. So Acacia Rigidula is not a vitamin, a mineral, an herb or other botanical, or an amino acid as promoted!
N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (NAT): To make dopamine, the body uses L-Tyrosine. N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine provides the body with a highly bioavailable form of L-Tyrosine. The enzyme Tyrosine Hydroxylase transforms plain Tyrosine into L-Dopa.
Extend-Rx™ (Naringen/Bergamottin) (Fruit):If you’re a tea drinker, you’re no doubt familiar with Earl Grey. Its distinctive aroma and subtle flavor make it one of the most popular teas in the world. Earl Grey’s characteristic fragrance comes from bergamot (Citrus bergamia), a type of orange that grows in the Calabria region of southern Italy. The essential aromatic oil in bergamot peel is also used in perfumes and prized in aromatherapy for its ability to reduce anxiety.
Icariin: It is also sometimes referred to by its active ingredient as Horny Goat Weed. It has also been shown in one rat study to increase Testosterone levels at a rather high dose, and moderate dosages are shown to be beneficial for bone health.
NOTE: Acacia Rigidula cannot be legally marketed in Europe unless the sellers demonstrate that it does not present a risk, or mislead, the consumer so along with DMAA, is technically another illegal ingredient contained in this supplement.
Why Phenadrine not to be trusted?
- It provides ingredients, most are with bad reputation from FDA grounds. And some are illegal to be marketed in some countries due to it’s harmful effects.
- Poorly rated on any customer oriented platform like Amazon (check ratings at end of this review).
- It includes DMAA which is banned by most sporting authorities, including the World Anti Doping Agency and it will show up as a positive in dope testing. Plus it is illegal in the USA for safety reasons and the FDA is attempting to remove these products from the market.
- No actual clinical studies presented to support this product and its weight loss claims.
- The side-effects should be highly taken into consideration (discussed)
Phenadrin Side Effects
Most supplement companies have removed DMAA from their formulas. This should tell you something. If you are going to use Phenadrine by APS, you should be aware of its potential to cause side effects such as:
- Liver damage.
- High blood pressure.
- Racing heart.
- Excessive thirst.
- Panic attacks.
Where Phenadrine is sold?
Currently it is being promoted on Amazon which is not doing so well because of the negative review. So they decided to establish their own official website and which look poorly designed and lousy customer support. So they heavily relay now on their ecommerce website.
Phenadrine testimonials and reviews on Amazon and forums
Whenever you buy a weight loss product, the best you can hope for is that it doesn’t work but with Phenadrine it’s fat burning results might look interesting on the first week. Once the mentioned side-effects kicks in, the overall impression changes. We do not recommend Phenadrine as a weight loss aid and strongly advise all consumers to avoid any product that contains DMAA (by any name) or Acacia Rigidula. The FDA has issued warnings about both ingredients and the FDA exists to protect consumers’ health. To denounce the abilities of Phenadrine as a weight loss provider would be unjust. Although we do have some reservations about it due to not being backed by actual clinical studies. Unlike PhenQ that had several clinical studies and been tested with it’s positive implications on the fat burning journey.
As with any supplement, check with your physician prior to use. Do not use any weight loss product if you have any current or previous medical condition of any kind. Such conditions may include but are not limited to high or low blood pressure, stroke, arrhythmias or palpitations. Any heart, thyroid, or liver condition.
