Nuephedra

The safer alternative to now banned Ephedrine.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Nuephedra, also known as Nuphedrine, is a supplement designed to speed weight loss by suppressing appetite. It is the safer alternative to the now banned Ephedra and Ephedrine. Nuephedra, which has not been approved by the Federal Food and Drug Administration, contains the herb, Hoodia, which comes from a South African plant that has been used for hundreds of years to suppress appetite and thirst. Nuephedra claims to be the only form of Hoodia that has been clinically tested in America. The supplement also contains Slimaluma which is a trademarked ingredient that is supposed to help you not overeat. Nuephedra also contains another trademarked ingredient called Advantra-Z which is supposed to speed up metabolism by burning 500 or more calories each day. Advantra-Z contains the active ingredient "Synephrine," which is part of the ephedrine family.

The supplement does not contain any chemical caffeine, ephedrine or taurine which is a stimulant found in many energy drinks currently on the market.

One study cited on the product's website proved that the median weight loss over 28 days was 10 pounds, with an average decrease in body fat of 3.3% by taking Nuephedra. No side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, jitteriness, or change in sleep habits were reported during this single study over a 28-day period.

CONCLUSION

Like any unregulated dietary supplement, Nuephedra comes with its risks and uncertainties.

Definitely consult your doctor before beginning a diet pill regimen like Nuephedra.

It works as long as you incorporate some type of exercise at least 3 or 4 times a weeking. Even walking for like 30 minutes. When I took it and didn't exercise, it didn't really work as well.
