The manufacturer of Phen375 does reveal its ingredients, but not the amounts present in the formulation. The ingredients are:
1,3,7-Trimethylxanthine: This is the chemical name for caffeine, the most common ingredient in over the counter fat burners and weight loss products. This compound is found in many weight loss supplements because it is a recognized fatburner with clinically proven benefits for weight loss (e.g. Am J Clin Nutr. 1989;49(1):44-50; Am J Clin Nutr. 1980;33(5):989-97). Caffeine can cause headaches, diarrhea, anxiety, jitters, insomnia and increased heart rate.
1,3-Dimethylpentylamine hydrochloride: This ingredient is also known as Geranium extract, 1-3 Dimethylamlyamine and DMAA. It functions as a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant. Although originally developed as a nasal decongestant by Eli Lilly, methylhexaneamine has been marketed by certain companies as a dietary supplement in combination with caffeine and other ingredients, under trade names such as Geranamine and Floradrene, to be used as a thermogenic or general purpose stimulant. Methylhexaneamine itself has not been studied intensively and its pharmacological profile has not been evaluated. Its stimulant effects on the CNS are less pronounced than those of the related compounds amphetamine and ephedrine. Methylhexanamine has a structural similarity to amphetamine, and even greater similarity to propylhexedrine, which may account for its similar mode of action to these compounds. In New Zealand, methylhexanamine (under the name 1,3-dimethylamylamine or DMAA) is an emerging active ingredient of party pills. Side effects including headache, nausea and stroke have been reported in recreational users of these products.
Dehydroepiandrosterone: This compound is commonly called DHEA. In the promotion of weight loss, DHEA does not appear to be particularly effective. Few side effects have been reported when DHEA supplements have been taken orally at the recommended doses. Side effects may include fatigue, nasal congestion, headache, acne, or rapid/irregular heartbeats. In women, the most common side effects are abnormal menses, emotional changes, headache and insomnia. Individuals with a history of abnormal heart rhythms, blood clots or hypercoagulability, and those with a history of liver disease, should avoid DHEA supplements. As a hormone precursor, there have been a few reports indicating side effects possibly caused by the hormone metabolites of DHEA. Some of these side effects include possibly serious cardiovascular effects such as heart palpitations.
L-Carnitine: This is an ingredient commonly found in weight loss pills. Carnitine plays a key role at the cellular level in the metabolism of fatty acids to provide energy. Studies to date have not convincingly demonstrated that carnitine supplementation can significantly boost calorie burn. This is a naturally occurring nutrient that has been taken for hundreds of years and is likely safe for normal individuals. However, there may be certain side effects associated with L-carnitine such as upset stomach or nausea. Some sources report that a fishy odor in the urine, sweat and breath can occur, but that is probably only associated with a high dosage of the compound. Individuals with cancer or HIV should not take L-carnitine without prior medical advice. This is because L carnitine may interfere with the activity of medicines used in treating these diseases. L carnitine supplements have been known to increase the frequency and/or seriousness of seizures for people that have a history of them. It has been theorized that the reason for this may be because L carnitine promotes increased cellular activity and energy, which in turn may trigger the “switch” which causes a seizure episode. There is not sufficient information as to whether there are any L carnitine side effects for women who are pregnant. Therefore it is advisable to avoid L carnitine unless directed by a doctor. There is some research which suggests that L carnitine supplements might also possibly interfere with the secretion of the thyroid hormone thyroxin.
