There seems to be quite a buzz generating about a relatively new product on the market called Phentaslim. So I’m diving into a review to see if there is any truth behind the positive fat loss claims I’ve heard floating around on forums. I also owe it to you – my readers – to let you know of any interesting products that may help you reach your weight loss goals that bit quicker
One of the first things that hit me when I visited the Phentaslim official site was the distinct lack of any of the usual hype. Unlike many diet pill products that make wild claims or offer free samples in order to hook you up to a re-bill scheme that you just simply can’t get out of – there was nothing like that at all on the Phentaslim site, which frankly was a refreshing change!
So, could it be that Phentaslim is going to provide a clinically proven weight loss support system that basically everyone wanting to get in shape is looking for?
When looking into the efficacy of a product the first thing to look at its claims. The next stage is to then look at the ingredients to see if these claims can be backed up. Unlike many diet pills that seem to claim that they can practically give you a celebrity body overnight, listing a whole host of ridiculous benefits, in other words a “magic pill”, Phentaslim simply makes three main claims.
- Increased metabolism
- Increased fat burning
- Enhanced mood and performance
These three aspects are what ultimately a good weight support supplement should be offering. Unfortunately, many claims go far beyond these and simply can’t be backed up. Later I will be digging a little deeper to see Phentaslim has any clinically proven ingredients that will provide these key benefits.
One of the most astounding statements on the official site was that Phentaslim makes it perfectly clear that you are not going to experience amazing (if any) weight loss just by taking Phentaslim on its own. Rather, it claims to accelerate your weight loss when it is taken alongside a sensible, healthy diet and a moderate amount of exercise.
For me, this is quite a legendary statement, and it goes a long way in giving Phentaslim a huge boost in their credibility!
Who’s Behind Phentaslim?
The company behind Phentaslim is called Optimum Nutra Inc and specializes in a variety of health support supplements. They also distribute internationally, so products are shipped over to the UK as well, and not just focused on the US.
There is also a contact page for Phentaslim and direct dial phone number should you need to contact them -this is a very positive sign as it means that they are not hiding behind P.O. Box addresses, or operating out of some dodgy warehouse somewhere in Utah.
I scoured the Internet and all my secret sources to find a complaint or a bad review about Optimum Nutra but came up with nothing bad at all – now that’s a first!
What Are Phentaslims Ingredients?
The ingredients is the part where most diet pills trip themselves up. However, I see no shady use of words like “proprietary blend” with Phentaslim they also have clearly stated the amounts of each ingredient used. This seems to be a rare combination - just straightforward, clear and transparent ingredients!
So let’s see if the ingredients are indeed clinically proven to support weight loss. Without further ado here is what Phentaslim contains:
Guarana Seed 100mg: this is a proven appetite suppressant, it is naturally rich in caffeine and is known to promote and increase in awareness, alertness and lifts your mood.
Caffeine Anhydrous 100mg : whilst there is some evidence that this can make a difference to weight loss through increasing metabolic rate, it can make a big difference to actually curbing your appetite which in turn helps to combat the fatal habit of snacking. It also promotes an increase in alertness, much the same as the Guarana seed does.
Green Tea (4:1 extract) 100mg: there is clear clinical evidence that the catechins contained in green tea are able to promote significant weight loss provided that they can be absorbed in sufficient quantities into your system. If absorbed in the correct amounts they have shown to provide an increase in body temperature without undesirable side effects such as increased heart rate and high blood pressure which leads to palpitations and strain on the vital organs. Clinical trials on green tea have shown that there is an increase in the breakdown of fat deposits, lowering of blood pressure and even a lowering of cholesterol.
Raspberry Ketones 200mg: these have been recently brought to the spotlight by the celebrity Dr Oz who hailed Raspberry ketones as a “miracle fat burner”. There have been many Raspberry Ketone products released since Dr Oz made his statement that have not contained enough of the active ingredients to be effective, however, 200 mg is a sufficient quantity to see some good results.
Cayenne 50mg: is derived from capsicum extract and is the main ingredient responsible for increasing the bodies inner temperature which in turn raises the metabolism and helps to burn more calories. Another approved diet pill called Capsiplex has a great deal of success with this, but as this is used alongside other ingredients in Phentaslim, it should have a far more powerful effect!
L-Tyrosine 200mg: this is a naturally occurring amino acid present in many high protein foods and is essential for processing protein into your system. Evidence has shown that sufficient amounts of L-Tyrosine may help in combating fatigue and improve recovery times after workouts.
L-Carnitine 250mg: this is another amino acid and is often taken on its own as a way of breaking down fats in the body and effectively flushing them out of your system. A good argument for adding it into Phentaslim would be that it could help reduce muscle shrinkage that can be associated with slimming so that you retain a more sculpted physique instead of looking gaunt.
Phentaslim also contains 100% of the recommended daily allowance of the essential B vitamins which are vitamin B1, B2, B6 and B12. It is this combination of the vital vitamin B elements that is able to support the other ingredients in delivering an increase in metabolism, along with being able to maintain healthy skin, hair and muscle tone through healthy and balanced cell renewal.
What I Like About Phentaslim
Firstly and most importantly the ingredients appear to stack up. The quantities are disclosed and are sufficient to do what Phentaslim is claiming. The ingredients are also backed by clinical trials, which is vital when assessing a weight maintenance support product. Everything contained in Phentaslim is also 100% natural and I have not heard any reports of undisclosed ingredients that may be dangerous to you.
The website also states that the makers of Phentaslim are so confident that you will like the product that they are willing to back this with a 30 day, 100% money back guarantee. If a product is good then a manufacturer should have no hesitation in offering a money back guarantee as their refund rate should be low. This would indicate that Phentaslim are pretty confident that you will be happy with the product.
I absolutely love that this is not a dodgy free trial and re-bill offer as well. They are even offering free shipping on orders of two bottles or more – again this appears to be a very rare offer indeed!

What I Don’t Like About Phentaslim
Usually I can find plenty that I don’t like about a diet pill, whether it be undisclosed ingredients, not revealing quantities, dodgy re-bills or simply that there are no clinical trials or any scientific evidence whatsoever that the ingredients would have any effect on weight loss. However, I am struggling to find anything to dislike about Phentaslim!
I suppose if I wanted to be really picky (which I tend to be) then the only small bugbear would be the use of “Phen” in its name as this immediately gives the impression that somewhere in the ingredients there is phentermine (which is not the case). Phentaslim should also not be taken after 3 PM as well, as it does contain caffeine which is a stimulant and not recommended for a good nights sleep.
It should also be noted that Phentaslim does contain a small amount of gelatin in the capsule casing. Therefore, making it unsuitable to be used by vegetarians. However, Phentaslim do clearly state this on their official site and also state that if you are pregnant or nursing you should also avoid taking Phentaslim as well. This is pretty standard advice with any diet pill, even those that only contain natural ingredients as Phentaslim does.
Apparently there have been quite a few glowing reports from Phentaslim users who have indicated increases in energy levels and healthy, notable weight loss. It now remains to be seen if the relatively new Phentaslim will attract a celebrity following as some of the other proven weight loss supplements have!
At A Glance:
- Uses “Phen” in the name
- Not to be taken after 3 PM
- Not suitable for vegetarians
I am quite astounded that I have eventually managed to review a diet pill that has as much potential for helping you lose weight as Phentaslim does! The ingredients are all clinically proven and are provided in the correct quantities so as to actually produce a positive effect without any nasty side effects.
As the manufacturers of Phentaslim are offering a full money back guarantee it is also a risk free supplement as well, so if you are looking into using a slimming aid to increase your weight loss efforts then using Phentaslim could be a very valuable tool to your armory!
TIP: If you purchase more than one bottle you
