Phentramin - D Review

Phentramin-D Overview

Phentramin-D is a weight loss pill that acts as an appetite suppressant to help with weight loss and also claim to increase energy and boost metabolism levels. Phentramin-D is available without prescription in tablet and capsule form and is used as an, to controversial weight loss pill; Phentermine. Phentramin-D is to be taken in conjunction with exercise and a healthy diet.

How does Phentramin-D work?

The main ingredient of Phentramin-D’s is Dimethyl-pentylamine-hydrochloride which the maker of this pill claim is an appetite suppressant however this claim lacks scientific evidence. Also included is a substance named Sympathomimetic amine, which also suppresses the appetite and encourages increased metabolism and enhanced calorie burn.
When your appetite is reduced by these ingredients, you are less likely to overeat which should result in a reduced calorie intake. This lower calorie intake combined with the increase in metabolism will encourage weight loss.

The Side Effects and Bad Points of Phentramin-D.

The makers of Phentramin-D do not offer a money back guarantee for this product which means, if users are not satisfied by the results, they cannot demand their money back.
Phentramin-D’s packaging is also purposefully made to look like a prescription medicine, perhaps in an attempt to make their wild claims of massive weight loss more credible. Potential customers should be aware of this and also of the fact that, the actual amounts of included ingredients are not disclosed to the customer. This means that there is no way of knowing what your money is buying in terms of weight loss ingredients.
At $69.00 a bottle, Phentramin-D is also considered an expensive option when choosing a weight loss solution.

Additionally, some unpleasant side effects may be experienced when usin

Phentramin-D. These include:

• Sleep related disorders including insomnia
• Changes in mood including irritability
• Dryness of the mouth


Because of the lack of any money back guarantee and the expensive price tag of Phentramin-D, it is inadvisable for customers to hand over money to try this product. Manufacturers should be confident that their product will have results, the lack of guarantee shows that the makers of Phentramin-D are clearly not. The fact that this product is offered as an alternative to Phentermine, a prescription only drug, yet does not disclose the amounts of ingredients as Phentermine does, also should set alarm bells ringing.
Add to this, unpleasant side effects including mood changes and sleep disorders and you will see that Phentramin-D is probably not a sensible way to shed pounds. Dieters are advised to seek a doctor’s advice and research alternative weight loss methods before embarking on the Phentramin-D diet plan.

How can Weight Training Help Me?

Weight training involves lifting weights and using resistance devices to cause your muscles to contract in response. There are many benefits for those who partake in weight training and a couple of misconceptions that hopefully this article will resolve.

The Facts

The benefits of weight training include:

• Helps to build strength and stimulates muscle growth.
• It makes you happy! Weight lifting releases feel good endorphins in the brain, which helps to alleviate harmful feelings of anxiety and depression.
• Reduces the risk of Osteoporosis by strengthening bones and increasing bone density.
• Makes you less likely to suffer from back ache or back problems because weight training strengthens ligaments and tendons, making them less likely to be strained or pulled.
• Improves your posture which can instantly make you look slimmer.
• Speeds up the metabolism by up to 15%, allowing greater calorie burn which leads to weight loss.
• New found strength will build confidence and is great for your self esteem.
• Can actually reverse mid-life metabolic decline, making you feel younger and slimmer.
• Your immune system will benefit and will be able to fight off disease and infection far more successfully.
• Will improve your balance and co-ordination which will benefit you in other exercises and sports as well as in your day to day life.
• Weight training decreases your chances of developing diabetes.

The Fiction:

• Many women believe that weight training is strictly for men and that they don’t have the physical strength to do this type of exercise. This is not true at all, everyone can benefit from weight training, regardless of gender.
• Another common misconception is that weight training will give woman obscenely large muscles. Again this is very far from the truth. Weight training can only give women toned muscles. Women simply do not produce enough testosterone to develop huge muscles. This image probably derives from pictures of female bodybuilders who may use supplements and devote a lot of time competitively training. Women will not get anywhere near this type of result by doing an average weight resistance work out.
• It is often presumed that aerobic and cardiovascular exercise is preferable to weight training due to the larger amounts of calories burned when actually, for every pound of muscle gained by weight training, 50 more calories are burned every day. Weight training increases your body’s ability to burn calories... even when you’re sleeping.
In summary, weight training reduces your chances of developing a number of health complications, increases your metabolism and your potential to burn calories, helps you stay slim and healthy and can be enjoyed by both men and women. Perhaps it’s time to give weight training a try and see the results!

Questions About Avatrim?

"Clinically proven," says Avatrim's web site. But it's not. At least, not yet. And maybe not ever - it's too soon to tell for sure. It's not unusual for a weight loss product's manufacturer and/or retail marketer to claim that it is made from a "revolutionary formula" like Avatrim's does, and some really are quite new. Avatrim isn't one of these, however. In addition, Avatrim's web site does not contain any information about clinical trials ever being done on the the product, much less any research results.

Avatrim contains:

Green tea extracts. In Avatrim's favor, this substance has been scientifically proven to cause a small to moderate increase in metabolism, thus burning fat and calories more efficiently at the cellular level. It also limits the conversion of carbohydrates into glucose (sugar). But green tea is mostly known and used by millions of people world-wide for it's nutritional, antioxident, and cancer-prevention properties. It's also enjoyed simply for its natural, herbal taste. The least that can be said about green tea is that it will do a user no harm. At best, it's one of nature's rare miracle foods. The problem with Avatrim is that the amount of green tea contained in the product is unknown.

Biotin. This is a form of vitamin B that has been a component in fat burners, as one review site puts it, "since dinosaurs roamed the Earth." It's very healthy, but not exactly revolutionary as Avatrim's site claims its ingredients to be. How much biotin is contained in Avatrim? Unknown.
L-Carnitine. This amino acid plays an important part in the body's function and health. Among other things, it helps burn fatty acids - a necessary action for the body to provide itself with energy. The problem with Avatrim's inclusion of L-carnitine in its formula is that there's no evidence to suggest that artificially increasing the body's level of this amino acid is of any help in weight loss. How much L-carnitine is contained in Avatrim? Unknown.
Piper nigrum. You may not realize it, but you probably have this substance on your dining room table - it's just black pepper. Just like some fat burners use red chili peppers to generate calorie-burning inside the body, Avatrim's creators use the black variety that is not quite as hot, but still efficient as a seasoning and as a fat burner. How much pepper is contained in Avatrim? Unknown.

Avatrim passes FDA standards in its manufacturing and sales; it does no harm to users. It's also unknown if the Avatrim formula is effective in weight loss. In another year, after the product has developed a "following" and a clinical profile of results, perhaps this can be determine. Until then, it's simply too close to call.

A quick look at Phen375's bottle will tell you exactly how much L-carnitine is contained in each tablet: 508 micrograms. Daily values for its other ingredients haven't been established, but still all these ingredients are listed and have a tried-and-true history of being top-rated as fat burners. One thing is certain: Phen375's formula includes these powerful fat burners that are safe for most adults. What you can expect from this product's truly revolutionary formula is the very best help with your weight loss goals available today without prescription.


This so-called weight loss supplement can be found in drug stores, supermarkets, health food stores and on the Internet. Although it doesn't warrant the "do not use" label from reviewers as a clearly-documented dangerous substance, Accuslim does have three major problems associated with its use: (1) It has very unpleasant side effects, (2) It doesn't work as a weight loss aid, and (3) Its advertising contains false and misleading claims.

Accuslim, in the maufacturer's verbal hype, is billed as the "super sexy diet pill" and is obviously aimed at women who would love to associate themselves with being both super and sexy. In addition, its advertising claims that the ingredients in Accuslim are somehow a completely new discovery. These two claims make Accuslim a powerful draw for younger women who are only too happy to plunk down their cash and credit cards to achieve an alluring look through some new diet breakthrough, and who are very unlikely to either read the bottle label or research the ingredients.
The facts are that the ingredients in Accuslim are anything but new. "Citrus Arurantium" is merely the fruit of a citrus tree - usually called bitter orange - that is commonly used as orange flower perfume bases, flavorings, as a central nervous system stimulant and as an appetite suppressant. Accuslim's formula is similar to many other weight loss supplements that crammed the shelves after the FDA banned the sale of products that contained the dangerous stimulant drug, ephedra (ephedrine). Accuslim may be "ephedra free" as it claims, but so is every other over-the-counter weight loss supplement since ephedra has been illegal in the US for a decade - hardly a new development! Formulas containing bitter orange, however, also cause FDA concerns because of its tendency to cause potentially serious side effects and because of its lack of true effectiveness, despite manufacturers' claims. According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine's 2008 review, bitter orange has NOT been proven to be safer for use as a diet aid than ephedra, nor is there any clinical evidence that show it is effective in weight loss.
Reading Accuslim's label may convince unsuspecting potential buyers because of its list of exotic herbal ingredients like green tea, rosea, vanadium, ginseng, eleuthero, and garcinia. The truth is that all of these ingredients combined in the recommended dose of 1-3 tablets before meals contain more caffeine than is generally considered to be safe because of its stimulant and addictive traits. Heavy coffee drinkers are particularly aware of caffeine's very unpleasant withdrawal symptoms that are identical to the addictive drugs amphetamine and methamphetamine!
Accuslim's side effects include:
Nervousness, restlessness
Increased blood pressure
Irregular heart rate
Stomach cramps
It's easy to summarize the problems associated with Accuslim: It doesn't help users lose weight, but it does make them feel bad. Why bother when there are alternative solutions available as weight loss supplements that really work, and that contain no harmful or uncomfortable side effects?
Chief among those solutions is Phen375! Reviewers consistently report that Phen375 is safe and effective as a weight loss aid and produces NO unpleasant side effects. Unlike Accuslim, Phen375 really is a new weight loss breakthrough; since its release on the Internet market in 2009, it has earned testimonials from users and a remarkably high re-order rate. It contains no caffeine, is made from pharmaceutical-grade ingredients in FDA-approved laboratories, and its manufacturers make no false or misleading claims about its all-natural contents and their effects. Clearly, Phen375 is the best, safest, and most effective choice to help dieters achieve their weight loss goals.
