NuPhedrine

A combination of Advantra-Z and real South African hoodia

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Please note, the product DietsInReview.com has reviewed is available at Nuphedrine.com. There is confusion amongst consumers about the color and packaging of the pills. In 2008, Nuphedrine changed manufacturers, and in the process updated their packaging and the color of the pills. The current Nuphedrine product is sold in a box with individual packets inside.

Nuphedrine is a highly-sought after, but highly controversial diet supplement. It contains two key ingredients which have been implicated in aiding weight loss: Advantra-Z and Hoodia. Advantra-Z is a patented form of synephrine or citrus aurantium, a similar product to the now banned ephedra. Hoodia is a cactus plant that hails from South Africa where it has long been used as an appetite suppressant for tribal men on long treks through the countryside. It has recently gained enormous popularity in the US. Nuphedrine also contains Slimaluma, a patented product that is also supposed to suppress appetite.

Nuphedrine is not supposed to cause any side effects. It does not contain any stimulants like caffeine or taurine.

PRO
  • Nuphedrine may help to jump start a weight loss program
  • Nuphedrine’s auto-shipment program is voluntary, not automatic
CON
  • Nuphedrine is not approved by the FDA
  • No scientific evidence that Nuphedrine results in weight loss
  • Pure hoodia is very difficult to come by
  • May cause many side effects
  • Not a longterm solution to weight loss
  • Hoodia also suppresses thirst
INGREDIENTS

Nuphedrine contains certified, 20X South African Hoodia, Advantra-Z in the 30X potency and Slimaluma.

Here is a breakdown of the three ingredients of Nuphedrine and how they work to help you lose weight:

Advantra-Z alone is supposed to help you burn an extra 500 calories a day with its 30X "Extra Strength" concentration. Advantra-Z claims that it enhances weight loss, increases lean muscle mass, improves athletic performance and suppresses appetite.

Hoodia contains a compound called ‘P57’, which is a molecule that makes you feel full. But only pure hoodia contains this special molecule. Many studies have shown that even though a product may claim it is pure hoodia or certified hoodia, it is not the real thing. The hoodia contained in NuPhedrine is concentrated 20 times and has a standardized guaranteed 20:1 ratio rating.

The third ingredient in Nuphedrine , Slimaluma is sends signals to your brain while you’re eating telling you that you’re full. Given its effects on satiety, a little amount of food can go along way in tricking you into feeling that you’ve eaten enough to quell your appetite even though very little food has been consumed.

ADMINISTRATION

It is recommended that you take three capsules of Nuphedrine per day. Two capsules should be taken in the morning on an empty stomach or 1-2 hours after eating. The third capsule should be taken at mid-day to help get you through the evening.

DIET and EXERCISE

There are no specific dietary or exercise recommendations while taking any Nuphedrine but the company does recommend that you follow a sensible eating and exercise plan.

CONCLUSION

Nuphedrine may be one of the most popular weight-loss supplements on the market with its triple combination of South African Hoodia, Advantra-Z and Slimaluma. But diet experts, health professionals and individuals who have lost weight and successfully kept it off will attest to the proven fact that weight loss cannot come in a bottle. If it were that easy, there would not be the obesity epidemic in this country like there currently is.

If you are curious about Nuphedrine, speak to a medical professional before you take it, particularly if you have any prior health conditions.

You are wrong Yoli. You've been scammed. The product you received from nuphedrine.com is actually miracle burn. The person running nuphedrine.com is also running realnuphedrine.com. It doesnt take a brain surgeon to look at the nuphedrine.com site and the miracle.com site to see that they are the exact same product. I did some research and found it best written on a forum. I would like to clarify what has happened to Nuphedrine because their is alot of confusion. The Nu Nuphedrine stuff in the boxes is actually a product called miracle burn with less ingredients than the original Nuphedrine formula. . The Nuphedrine website is owned by marketing company that used to promote Nuphedrine . Their contract was canceled because of a dispute with the Manufacturers . On 3/15 of this year , the pirates converted Miracle Burn into Nuphedrine and started shipments last month from Anthony , New Mexico and opened as P.O. box in El Paso , Texas. The original Nuphedrine has always been in a 60 capsule bottle, contained 20 ingredients and was developed nearly 2 years ago. The owners of the popular website are being sued and will probably have to stop producing the new 90 capsule boxes. The authentic Nuphedrine has Sunrise Health LTD of Fanabe Spain on the label and has always shipped from Florida . The popular nuphedrine website did not carry any product in stock until 3/15 . Traditionally , all their orders were also shipped from manufacturer's warehouse in Florida . The telephone number that has been on the bottle for the past 18 months is the manufacturer in Florida . Anyone who purchased Nuphedrine on the old website last month and received a 90 capsule box with no bottle has received a different product.

I am almost through my first box. I will be ordering more. I have tried many diet pills, many with hodia. This product absolutely takes the craving away. I am feel hungry but because I don't have the craving, I eat responsibily. And yes, it brings my energy level up, but only slightly. Good Luck

Hi All, "REAL" Nuphedrine capsules look blue and green. Many companies, like nuphedrinedirect are selling counterfeit nuphedrine. If you have concerns and you're not sure, may I suggest you go to http://www.realnuphedrine.com/ where they explain about the counterfeit stuff. The "REAL" website to order from is nuphedrine.com. I received my nuphedrine in 5 days after ordering from the real site. I just started them on today (Tuesday, 5/28/08). My starting weight is 165 pounds as of today. I hope to lose about 35 - 40 pounds. I will keep you guys posted with my results. Good luck to everyone!!!!!

I order three boxesd off the Nuphedine website(better deal) . In each box are indivually wrapped 3 blue and olive green capsules .On the blue end the Nuphedrine is written in white. I haven't seen any results whatsoever. It amazes me how many different colors the pills are.I am thinking someone is making a fool out of all of us.

nuphedrine.com is selling distributing miracleburn with nuphedrine printed on it. if you buy nuphedrine from nuphedrine.com you are actually getting miracleburn. you can go to miracleburn.com to see that it's the exact same product being sold on nuphedrine.com. the real nuphedrine is red and white and is twice daily. nuphedrine.com is a scam.

I bought Nuphedrine from ebay. It's a half blue, half white capsule. I can honestly say it does absolutely nothing for my appetite. I am still absolutely starving most of the day. Do not waste your money, please! (The only thing it did do was keep me awake at night if I took one after 3pm.)

real nuphedrine is white and red. what you all are getting is miracle burn. you need to visit www.nuphedrinedirect.com. if you go to miracleburn.com you will see that what you all are getting is miracleburn and not nuphedrine.

It's me again, it's 22/5/2008 today, and so far I haven't even lost any weight at all, not even 1pound, I even tried to double my dosage for the last week, and still nothing worked, it did nothing to my appetite, but I don't dose off that easily at work anymore, I'm thinking about finishing the first box and if that doesn't work I'll return the rest, I wonder if I can still get my magazine subscription? By the way, margaret, how did they pay you back? by sending a check or just credit it back on your credit card? coz I used my credit card to buy it.....

I ordered my Nuphedrine from their website. Mine came in a box and my pills are blue. I took two yesterday and they made me so sick, severe nausua, headache, shakiness and I felt like I was going to pass out. I tryed one pill today and I still felt ill. I wish I had done more research. I do not recommend this product to anyone. I will be returning for a refund, will let you know how that goes.

My pills are blue and transparent (but the powder stuff is blue). So it looks blue and blue. Where did you order your pills? I recommend everyone to order them straight from the company.
