Fen Fast is a diet pill produced by an American company called Intechra Health. Its synthetic formula is supposed to help its users lose between 15 and 25 pounds monthly, by reducing appetite and triggering thermogenesis, the natural weight loss mechanism of the body through which fats are burned away in a very short period of time. The ad sure sounds promising, but does this wonder pill really work? Is it safe for the users?
Fen Fast is a direct reference to another famous diet pill, Phentermine, which, despite working really well, had a couple of side effects so dangerous that it had to be removed from the market and prescribed only in extreme cases of obesity. The daily dosage recommended by the manufacturer is of 4 pills, two in the morning, before breakfast and the other two just before lunch.
All the main ingredients of Fen Fast are synthetic:
- DL-Phenylalanine, a chemical form of the amino acid Phenylalanine acting as an appetite suppressor and an energy booster;
- 1, 3, 7 Trimethylxanthine (another fancy name for caffeine anhydrous), believed to increase the metabolic rate especially in combination with physical exercises;
- Hordenine Hci, an alkaloid of phenylethylamine that is believed to improve the mood, while taking the mind of the user off from food, yet also known to increase blood pressure and heart rate;
The only problem with this wonder pill is that the fat burning process is extremely weak, unless watching your diet and combining it with an exercise routine.
• Increased energy level;
• Promises to help you lose up to 24 pounds a month;
• Appetite suppressant.
• Relatively expensive ($64 a pill containing mainly caffeine);
• No transparency from the producer with regard to the quantities of ingredients or their safety;
• No money back guarantee;
• The handling and shipping fee is quite expensive compared to most of the other diet pills from the competitors;
• Boosts the adrenaline level so much that it may make the user feel too stressed to eat;
• Has many unpleasant side effects (headache, nausea, vomiting, anxiety, increased blood pressure and heart rate, restlessness and insomnia when taken too close to bedtime);
• Works well only in association with proper diet and physical exercises;
• Debatable clinical evidence of the efficiency of this pill.
The few positive reviews available are from customers who combined the pills with exercise and customized diet.
Others, on the contrary, argued against their efficiency and reported disturbing side effects, associated to the very powerful stimulants in the pill. “I did not experience the boost of energy associated with Phentermine or the appetite suppressing effect. It just made me irritable, probably because I had a hard time sleeping at night”.
Or “It didn’t work like stated in their advert. It lasted a short time and upset my stomach and made me feel jittery”.
A very disappointed customer wrote:
“I had no physical change at all, nor any feeling of any effect from product usage in one month. I lived and learned and do not recommend anyone waste their money the way I did”.
As harsh as it may sound, when you draw the line and weigh the pros and cons of this over hyped caffeine pill, you realize that it is just a mediocre diet pill, sold as a legal substitute of the illegal Phentermine drug, which promises more than it can deliver and is definitely not worth its price.
