Nuphedrine is being advertised as a weight loss supplement that is supposed to increase your metabolism and suppress your appetite by taking 3 capsules per day. Nuphedrine claims to have 3 active weight loss ingredients…Advantra-Z, Real Certified Hoodia and Slimaluma. Hmm…
The pack has made several requests for an investigation on Nuphedrine so here it goes!
|The Claim||The Problem (Dishonesty)|
|Advantra-Z is clinically proven to increase metabolism to burn calories.||There has been no actual clinical proof published on the effects of Advantra-Z.|
|The Claim||The Problem (Dangerous Dishonesty)|
|Red Alert: The makers of Nuphedrine explicitly claim that it’s active ingredient Advantra-Z does not increase heart rate and has no negative side effects on the cardiovascular or central nervous systems.||Advantra-Z is just a fake name for Synephrine which has many dangerous side effects such as rapid heart rate, hadache, agitation and heart palpitations. In some cases it can also cause angina pectoris, kidney damage, increased eye pressure and reduced blood circulation to the heart & extremeties. The other stimulants in Adnvantra-Z can increase these effects. There are also reported cases of heart attack and stroke linked to this ingredient. Buyer Beware!|
More Bad News…
Based on comments on forums and complaint boards Nuphedrine customers simply don’t appear to be losing weight. I am also seeing a few customer service issues especially concerning what I call “deceptive billing”. Basically some people are being enrolled into an autoship program without their knowledge where they’re automatically charged every month and sent more Nuphedrine.
Basically, it appears to be yet another one of those agressive marketing organizations that I love so much.
So What Can You Do to Lose Weight?
Well, “not changing your diet” simply isn’t going to cut it! I wish I could snap my fingers and make you skinny.
The truth is that you have to change the way you eat and get the right kind of exercise.
Nuphedrine also claims to reduce cravings (kind of weird since you don’t have to change your diet). This is also something a pill won’t do. But a lot of my pack has found that cravings are often caused by eating the wrong foods. If you start eating the right foods, most cravings go away on their own.
