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.

I'm only on Day 3 of taking it but so far I am not impressed. Does it take a while for this stuff to kick in? I'm still hungry and I'm still tired. When will I stop craving food and get that surge of energy that makes it easier for me to work out? I'll post again later to let you know if things improve....

Nuphedrine is a bit pricey but worth the money. I've tried another diet pill that I got at gnc and i swear they were placebos, i didn't feel anything. You will def notice Nuphedrine working, it's actually pretty strong. You won't mistake this stuff for placebos.

I ordered a couple of boxes of nuphedrine for my husband and I. We're about to place another order and wanted to recommend this product to anyone between 35 to 40 trying to lose weight. We tried and tried but kept bouncing up and down. Finally have something to curb our hungry and give us enough energy to go all day. And it's helped with our sleeping, since we are more active during the day, we sleep better throughout the night. A definite unepected plus. Feeling better as each day passes. This is how life is supposed to be :)

I did not think nuphedrine was going to be as strong as it is. Very potent product, can't believe it's sold over the counter.

I ordered the pills on Saturday night regular shipping and they arrived last night (USPS). Quicker than the standard 7 days. I took my first dose this morning and I don't feel the usual hunger pangs that I normally do by this time. For the first time in a long time, I'm NOT HUNGRY! YaY! I need to lose about 15-20 lbs and I hope this works. I'm excited. I work out faithfully anyway and I'm just using this as a supplement. I'll keep checking in every week. BTW, my pills are blue.

SoraT........I took the real nuphedrine for about two months and it was great. Then I made a huge internet noobie mistake by ordering what i thought was nuphedrine from eBay. Just like the price the product was just a CHEAP knockoff. It came in a bottle with a paper label. It looked really dirty. I did not open this and returned it but had to reverse the charges on my card because the ebay seller was a scammer. The real pills come in packets like you mentioned and they have the name on the pill. the real product is great, got my second order and still losing weight! Whooo Hooo! :)

Seems to me most (not all) posts about it not working or having side effects were taking a wrong colored pill. Nuphedrine does NOT come in a bottle. They are in packets of 3 each. The box is just like the one on the website, silverish in color with blue dots. The pills are just like the ones on the website, blue pill with a blue cap that has white letters "Nuphedrine." These are the correct pills.

It's easy to lose weight but hard to keep it off. I just want to eat all the time but this supresses my apettite.
