has anyone ever tried or heard of the diet pill called LEan EFX made by farenheit???
just wondering, someone I know swears by them.
ps: I just took my first one today but a bit worried as have never done diet pills.
Judge for yourself:
Thiamine--maybe not a big problem.
I wouldn't take it. Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methylhexanamine
Phyllanthus Emblica: Indian gooseberry. It is on wikipedia too, not as ominous sounding to me.
Bitter Orange: Sounds harmless, but can have similar effects as ephedra.
5-Hydroxytryptophan: Mood elevator, possible appetite suppressant. Check out potential side effects http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5-Hydroxytryptophan
N-Acetyl tyrosine: an amino acid
Ginsing: a stimulant herb. Known to cause similar effects as ephedra in some people, but effects on individuals vary.
1,3,7 trimethylxanthine: one of the chemical names for caffeine!!
Cassia Nomame: an herbal lipid absorption inhibitor. Didn't find much on this in non-herbal sites.
Taraxicum: a Chinese herb used to cleanse the liver. (Broccoli does the same thing!)
Green Tea extract: A known antioxidant that is felt to be helpful in weight loss.
My take to all this: Drink some green tea, avoid the stimulants. STAY on the IP program if you need to still lose weight. Hope this all helps!!
