Slim FX is advertised as a wonder pill that will provide 12 hours of energy, great mood and low appetite. It is recommended as a stimulant for athletes, but also for anyone who needs enhanced energy and weight loss induced by suppressing appetite. The original FX combination of ingredients offers enough to support its claim – several powerful mood enhancers and a huge quantity of caffeine from two sources. The product is also supposed to work in several stages, so that the energy is maintained throughout the day, without painful crash at the end and normal sleep at night. The manufacturer promises very quick results when it comes to weight loss and no side effects.
How does Slim FX Work?
The main ingredients of Slim FX are stimulants and mood enhancers:
Caffeine is a well known central nervous system stimulant and common ingredient in most energy supplements.
Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid found in many foods that can act as a mood enhancer. Aspartame is also high in phenylalanine, so people who are taking aspartame as artificial sweetener should be careful with the dose. Phenylalanine should not be taken by pregnant women and children because it can cause anxiety, jitteriness, and hyperactivity.
Guaranine is an extract of plant guarana from Brazil. It is a powerful stimulant containing twice the concentration of caffeine of coffee.
Griffonia simplicifolia is a plant-based mood enhancer which acts by boosting body production of serotonin.
1-MeTIQ™ (1-Methyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline) is another mood enhancer used to treat symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Still under research.
Rauwolscine, also known as isoyohimbine, is a central nervous system stimulant. It can be used as a local anesthetic and a mild aphrodisiac. It has also been found to boosts body’s ability to burn fat.
Does Slim FX Deliver?
With its combination of powerful stimulants and mood enhancers, it is impossible for Slim FX not to offer significant energy boost and great feeling of well-being. If that energy is used for increased exercise, it will probably help with weight loss as well. Some of the ingredients also assist in body’s ability to burn fat by boosting metabolism, another sign that the Slim FX is the real deal.
How Much Weight Will I Lose?
There are very few reviews by product testers, and one of them claims to have lost six pounds in a very short time. Time will tell if this is the normal effect of Slim FX, after more users had a chance to have a go.
The manufacturer warns that the product should be used only by healthy people older than 21. It should not be used by people who are under any medication without consulting their doctor. Large quantity of caffeine in this product might affect some people who are sensitive to this stimulant.
Pros and Cons
1. Powerful energy booster
2. Great mood enhancer
3. All ingredients are approved and tested
1. Unknown, since the product has not hit the market yet
Slim FX is the new product untested on the large number of users, so its true effects are still unknown. But, the combination of ingredients show the potential of this product to deliver what it promises – great energy, focus and feeling of well-being. The potential for significant weight loss is good, if taken as a pre-exercise stimulant, but this promise by Xtreme is still to be verified by the users once the product is widely tested by the users.
