There are countless diet pills on the market that promise rapid weight loss with very little effort on your part and Adiphene is one of them. The question is does it really work? Can Adiphene help you lose weight?
First, let’s see what Adiphene actually is.
Adiphene is a supplement that contains 5 different types of ingredients
Bitter orange is thought to be the best substitute for the ingredient ephedra and can also help suppress appetite.
Chromium picolinate can increase insulin sensitivity.
Guarana Extract is rich in caffeine and increases energy levels and mental alertness.
Ginseng panax root extract aids carbohydrate metabolism and can stabilize blood sugar levels.
Cacao extract increases the metabolism of fats and is thought to inhibit fat storage.
Cinnamon extract, which apart from slightly increasing metabolic rate, can also reduce insulin resistance and control blood glucose levels.
Cayenne capsicum helps the body burn more calories by producing heat and forcing the body to consume energy to cool itself down. It also allows the active ingredients of Adiphene to reach their destination inside the body.
The product contains 3 fat metabolizers: Ginger Root Extract, Vitamin B6 and L-carnitine HCL.
Chitosan reduces the absorption of dietary fats, by binding to them and carrying them through the digestive system.
Glucomannan, also known as Konjac root, is an appetite suppressant, which absorbs water and fills the stomach giving you a feeling of satiety.
So, What Does All This Mean?
It means that Adiphene makes some interesting claims. It promises to boost your metabolism, give you more energy, reduce fat absorption, increase fat burning and help you eat less. Are these claims true?
Unfortunately, the issue is more complicated than that. Let’s take metabolism, for example. Even though, Adiphene does contain ingredients that have been proven to increase metabolic rate, the effect is actually negligible. At most, you may be able to burn a few dozen extra calories per day. If you really want to increase your metabolism, you need to exercise more.
The same goes for fat-metabolizers. The ingredients may slightly facilitate fat burning once it occurs, but fat burning won’t even begin, if you are not in a calorie deficit.
There are 2 ingredients, however, that have the potential to be effective for losing weight. These ingredients are Chitosan and Glucomannan.
Chitosan can limit fat absorption in the body. This means that even though you eat fats, these calories “don’t count”, because they simply pass through without getting absorbed. However, you need to keep in mind that Chitosan only bind a percentage of the dietary fats you consume, so it doesn’t give you permission to eat unlimited amounts of fats or calories.
This is by fat the most effective ingredient of Adiphene that is also backed by science. In one study lasting 16 weeks that involved 200 overweight and obese subjects; it was found that glucomannan has the ability increased satiety. The participants were divided in 3 groups: the first one was taking a mixture of psyllium seed husks (3g), the second 1 gram of glucomannan twice daily and third was the placebo group. The groups lost, 9.96 lbs and 10.14 lbs respectively on average, and the control group only lost 1.75 lbs.
Adiphene does contain ingredients that can speed up the weight loss process. If you combine it with a moderately hypo-caloric diet and some kind of exercise, you can get much faster results.
