PhenMax375 – A Phen375 Pale Imitation

Phenmax375 CanadaPhenMax375 is a fat burning diet pill made in America by YoungYou Corporation.

According to the marketing material, it presents a “brand-new approach to thermogenic weight loss” and uses potent ingredients to deliver fast weight loss and decrease the waist circumference.

However, it’s hard to see what this new approach is because all the ingredients used in the PhenMax375 formulation are diet pill regulars.

Another point of interest is that it sounds very much like Phen375 – the market leading dual action fat burner and appetite suppressant.

Advertised Benefits

  • Super thermogenic high energy formula
  • Helps to burn fat all day long
  • Helps take your your weight loss to the max
  • Helps regulate hunger
  • Reduces your daily calorie intake
  • Boosts energy by increasing natural fat metabolism and hormones
  • Works well for both men and women

What is PhenMax375 and How Does it Work? 

PhenMax375 is primarily designed to function as an appetite suppressant and fat burner. It’s also intended to provide extra energy. This is something most dieters will be in need off, especially if they are spending a lot of time at the track or in the gym.

YoungYou don’t provide any information about how any of the promised benefits are likely to be achieved and the formulation does not appear to have been independently tested, so there is no proof that it will work.

However, if it can do the things it’s supposed to do, PhenMax375 should make it easier for dieters to stick to their calorie controlled diets, while also ensuring they burn their stores of fat to get extra energy.

Key Ingredients

All of the ingredients used in PhenMax375 are housed in a proprietary blend (765mg). No inclusion rates are provided, but two capsules contain:

  • B-Phenylethylamine HCL: An organic compound that’s alleged to be good for boosting energy levels and supporting weight loss, but there is a lack of scientific evidence to support such claims.
  • Garcinia Cambogia Extract: A tropical fruit that provides hydroxycitric acid (HCA). This chemical has the ability to prevent new fat cells from forming. It also appears to be good for curbing hunger urges.
  • L-Carnitine Fumarate: Provides the amino acid L-carnitine, which helps the body produce energy. It’s also credited with many other abilities, but offers the most value to people who are L-carnitine deficient.
  • Caralluma Extract: A respected appetite suppressant that’s obtained from a species of cactus. It’s ability to take away hunger was put to the test by researchers in India and it’s hunger suppressing reputation appears to be built on solid ground. However, the study participants were given 1g of caralluma per day. The amount provided here is much less. The PhenMax375 proprietary blend is 765mg and Caralluma shares capsule space with five other ingredients.
  • Green Tea: A proven metabolism booster and thermogenic fat burner, green tea is also an extremely healthy ingredient that may protect the heart from the damage caused by heart attacks and strokes.
  • Guarana: A berry extract that provides caffeine. Guarana is good for providing long term energy, so the fact that it’s often added to energy drinks should not come as a surprise. Caffeine is a proven fat burner, so the presence of guarana in the formulation may also help provide some of the promised weight loss.
Usage Instructions – has to taken with a large glass of water, within 20 minutes of eating breakfast, and a healthy eating plan and regular exercise are recommended. Unfortunately, YoungYou appear to be confused about the dose. The marketing material on their website states only one pill is required per day. The back of the bottle says it’s two.

Customer Feedback

Customer feedback is a mix of good and bad.

A few average PhenMax375 customer reviews read:

“Decreased my hunger and helped me to lose 7 pounds in 14 days. No side effects.”
“I used this product for 8 weeks and it didn’t do a thing. What a load of crap!!!”
“Gave me plenty of energy and curbed my appetite too.”
“I’m sorry to say this didn’t work for me. Absolutely no results at all.”

PhenMax375 Side Effects & Health Issues

YoungYou stress the importance of seeking medical advice prior to using any brand of dietary supplement.

Where To Buy PhenMax375

It’s Possible to buy PhenMax375 from the manufacturers website and from Amazon. Each bottle contains 60 capsules. Customers who buy via Amazon can expect to pay around $26 per bottle. Buying directly from the manufacturer will bring the price down to $22.50.


There is no money back guarantee.

The Bottom Line

Although the formulation contains some good ingredients, the inclusion rates may be too low to provide adequate results and customer feedback suggests it does not work for many users.

This is not a point in the product’s favor because anyone who is disappointed by PhenMax375 will be unable to get their money back. At this point it’s worth mentioning PhenMax375 is a copycat product intended to attract the attention of people hoping to buy one of the most respected diet pills in the world—Phen375.

Phen375 real reviewThe name PhenMax375 even suggests it may be a higher strength version, but it’s not, and Phen375 is only available from It’s not made by YoungYou, but it does have a money back guarantee and plenty of good customer reviews.

PhenMax375 is slightly cheaper, so it beats it as far as the price goes, but will be unable to match it in results and, when it comes to weight loss, it’s the results that count.

Herbex Fat Burn Review with positives and negatives

Herbex fat BurnHerbex Fat Burn is produced by a leading manufacturer in South Africa. It is part of the Herbex Complete pack

The pack contains 3 products, all of which can be purchased directly from the official Herbex website – based in South Africa.

Purchasers who order the three together, as a “complete pack” will save money, but Herbex products are not going break the bank to begin with and taking so many products alongside each other may not wise.

Herbex Pack Contents

  • Fat Burn Tablets (60 tablets)
  • Slimmers Fat Burn Tea (Amount not stated)
  • Booster Fat Burn (50ml bottle)

The information provided about the Complete Pack is very vague. A box of Fat Burn Tablets contains 60 tablets.

Anyone taking the recommended dose of two capsules per day would find each bottle was good for 30 days.

Herbex diet products Canada

That’s normal for a weight loss product. Slimmers fat burn tea is sold in boxes of 20 or 40. If a box of each size is provided, the tea would last for 30 days as well, but the amount provided is not specified. If a lesser quantity is supplied the tea bags will run out before the tablets. It is also unclear how long the diet drops are likely to last.

The ingredient profile is based on 1ml, but 270 drops are needed per day. This sound like a lot. Even if the three 90ml doses did provide 3ml of Booster Fat Burn, the drops would still run out sooner than the tablets.

Herbex Fat Burn Alleged Benefits

  • Improved immune system
  • Faster metabolism
  • Boosted fat burning

Ingredient Potential

Fat Burn Tablets

One tablet provides:

  • Camellia sinensis extract (126.50mg): Green tea, pure and simple. The antioxidants provided by green tea can boost the immune system and improve overall wellness. More importantly for a product such as this, green tea is also a proven fat burner.
  • Zingiber officinale (125mg): This is just ginger. Ginger is often said to be a fat burner, but more study is required.
  • Capsicum frutescens (50mg): An extract taken from capsicum pepper. Research shows capsicum has the power to boost weight loss by accelerating the metabolism and encouraging thermogenic fat burning.
  • Eleutherococcus senticosus (30mg): A herb that can be good for boosting stamina and preventing fatigue.

Slimmers Fat Burn Tea

Each cup contains:

  • Rooibos tea (880mg): Taken from the leaves of an African shrub, rooibos tea seems to be offer a number of health benefits, including accelerated fat burning.
  • Black tea (600mg): In some ways there is very little difference between green tea and black tea because they are both taken from the leaves of the same plant. However, the leaves used to make black tea are subjected to processing techniques that cause them to become darker. This enriches the flavor, but it also appears to rob the leaves of some of their natural fat burning abilities.
  • Cinnamon (120mg): Cinnamon is alleged to have fat burning abilities, but there is a lack of research to support the claims made about it’s ability to help people to lose weight.
  • Zingiber officinale (120mg): Another dose of ginger. The tablets contain it and Booster Fat Burn does too.
  • Astragalus membranaceus (40mg): A Chinese herb that is alleged to be useful in many ways and is even said to be capable of prolonging the life.
  • Garcinia cambogia 60% extract (40mg): A tropical fruit extract that provides hydroxycitric acid (HCA). The ingredient has an excellent reputation as a weight loss booster, but the HCA content needs to be 60% or more. This is the case here, so its inclusion is not without value. 

Booster Fat Burn

Booster fat burn does not contain anything that cannot be found in the other two products.

1ml of Booster Fat Burn contains:

  • Camellia Sinensis (21mg)
  • Eleutherococcus senticosus (18.75mg)
  • Zingiber Officinale (14.25mg)
  • Astragalus Membranaceus (12mg)

Usage Instructions

Breakfast – One Fat Burn tablet should be taken with a glass of water. After this, a second glass of water has to be consumed that contains 90 fat drops of Booster Fat Burn. This is followed by a cup of Slimmers Fat Burn Tea. This is prepared by immersing a tea bag in a cup of boiling water and allowing it three minutes to brew.

Afternoon – The afternoon dose consists of a glass of water that contains 90 drops of Booster Fat Burn, followed by a second cup of Slimmers Fat Burn Tea.

Evening – The fat burning tea is not required during the evening, but another two glasses of water will be needed. One to wash down a Fat Burn tablet, followed by a second glass that contains 90 drops of Booster Fat Burn.

Herbex Fat Burn Side Effects & Usage Issues

Due to the combination of ingredients involved, and the way they products are used alongside each other, we suggest all potential users seek professional medical advice before using Herbex Fat Burn Complete Pack.

Buying Options

At the time of this review, the Herbex Fat Burn Complete Pack was only available from the manufacturer’s website and the price was USD$ 17 (R214.19).


No money back guarantee is available.

The Final Judgment

Juggling with three products per day does not sound like fun. Taking a pill or two, two to three times per day, is much easier; so Herbex Fat Burn Complete Pack does not compare well to competing products.

People who use the Complete Pack in the recommended day will likely feel less hungry though. Who wouldn’t when they were forced to fill their stomachs with so much extra liquid per day?

It seems unlikely that anyone who feels overly sleepy first thing in a morning would relish the idea of going to so much trouble. The need to “pop to the loo” would also likely to be increased considerably and this may be a problem for anyone who does not spend their days at home (housewives, homeworkers etc.).

On a more positive note, there are some good ingredients involved so, bearing in mind the low price, some people may still wish to give this one a try.

ThermoKal Review with Positives and Negative

ThermoKal CanadaThermoKal is a food supplement developed in the USA by Metabolic Nutrition. It’s designed to function as an energy-providing fat burner that can help people become leaner without any loss of muscle mass.

It is not unusual for some degree of muscle loss to occur while dieting. This can be a big problem for bodybuilders when they are trying to lower their percentage of body fat in an attempt to get “cut” for an upcoming competition. For anyone who falls into this category, ThermoKal has obvious appeal, but Metabolic Nutrition state their product is not just for bodybuilders.

They claim it is suitable for anyone who needs to burn extra calories, get rid of body fat, and have increased energy throughout the day.

The company also points out the pills do not contain caffeine and claim this allows them to get to work on stubborn stores of body fat without causing the “uncomfortable stimmed out feeling” that other fat burners do. That’s all well and good, but although the formulation is caffeine-free it contains several other stimulants. The claim that the formulation will be ideal for “anyone who is stimulant sensitive” simply cannot be upheld.

What are the top 10 best working fat burning substances

The Claims Made For ThermoKal

  • Delivers a long-lasting energy boost
  • Powerful sustained thermogenic fat burning
  • Maintains hard-earned muscle tissue
  • Helps you get the muscular physique you deserve

The Ingredients and the Benefits They May Offer

Each (1 capsule) dose of ThermoKal provides:

  • Chromium (400mcg)
  • Vitamin B3 (20mg)
  • Vitamin B6 (4.25mg)
  • Vitamin B12 (100mcg)

The presence of chromium comes as not surprise. It’s one of the most commonly used diet pill ingredients on the planet. Chromium has value because it helps prevent the overly elevated insulin levels that can trigger a severe drop in blood sugar levels. This is a useful ability because low blood sugar triggers a desire for sweet food.

B Vitamins are an equally common diet pill inclusion because they help ensure an efficient metabolism.

The formulation contains a further eight ingredients, but inclusion rates are not available because they are housed in a proprietary blend (700mg):

  • TeaCrine: A patented theacrine extract. Theacrine is a stimulant that is believed to possess abilities that are similar to those provided by caffeine.
  • Yohimbe: A stimulant derived from tree bark (yohimbe tree). It is often added to bodybuilding supplements because it’s believed to be support the growth of healthy muscle tissue. Yohimbe has also acquired a reputation as a fat burner, so it’s becoming an increasingly popular diet pill inclusion.
  • Kinetiq: A patented ingredient sourced from a species of fruit (citrus aurantium). The power component is a stimulant called synephrine. Science has proven a link between synephrine usage and fat burning, but the wisdom of combining such a powerful ingredient with so many other stimulants is questionable.
  • Berberine: One more stimulant to add to the mix. It has been suggested berberine may help keep blood sugar levels on an even keel, but there is no scientific proof to show that this is so.
  • Evodiamine: Does this blend really need yet another stimulant? Apparently so. Evodiamine has proven fat burning abilities, but only for rats. Science has yet to prove it can work for humans as well.
  • Paradoxine: A proprietary blend of ginger extract. It may have value as a fat burner, but evidence of this is limited to just one study.
  • CapsimaxCapsimax: A proprietary blend of chilli pepper extract. When it comes to fat burning, chilli pepper is a hot property, but it’s fiery nature can make it hard on the stomach. Capsimax utilizes a special “OmniBead” technology that makes easier to digest.
  • Black pepper extract: Black pepper contains a component called piperine that has the ability to help other ingredients be absorbed more efficiently.
How to use – The best way to use ThermoKal is to incorporate it into a weight management program that includes a low-calorie diet and regular exercise. One pill is needed every morning. If no side effects are experienced, another pill is required six to seven hours later.

What Customers are Saying About ThermoKal

Extensive online searches failed to discover any customer reviews for this product.

Possibility of Side Effects

ThermoKal is not suitable for women who are pregnant or nursing a child. Metabolic Nutrition recommend all potential users seek a doctor’s approval before using this product. Bearing in mind the amount of stimulants involved, this is very good advice.

The Best Place to Buy ThermoKal

ThermoKal is only available from the manufacturer’s website. There are 60 capsules per bottle and the price is USD$ 35.99 (CAD$ 47.10) plus shipping.


ThermoKal does not have a money back guarantee.

The Final Judgement

As far as weight loss goes, Capsimax is the most promising inclusion, but it is only one of 12 ingredients, so it seems probable its abilities will be hampered by a low inclusion rate.

ThermoKal should work well as an energy providing supplement though. With so many stimulants thrown into the mix a good energy buzz is practically guaranteed. The pills could work well for people who are hoping to intensify their efforts in the gym, but if you are seeking stimulant-free weight loss, ThermoKal is not the way to go.

Trimplex Elite Review with customer comments

Trimplex Elite CanadaSeveral people have contacted us asking for a Trimplex Elite review. We always try to oblige our site visitors but in this case it was a difficult task. The official product website is no longer functioning, so anyone who visits will get an error message.

On our search for the official website we also found several other sites that looked like they may have been created by the manufacturer of the product, but they all turned out to be affiliate-run sites. Some of them had “Buy Trimplex Elite” buttons that linked into official website.

Others simply sent site visitors to pages selling alternative products. The product is still available to buy via Amazon’s French site, but it’s costly to buy and is unlikely to be shipped to addresses based outside of France.

Digging deeper, we discovered some customer complaints that cast doubt on the way the manufacturer has conducted business in the past. Needless to say, this set the alarm bells ringing. On the one hand, the comments made could have been posted by diet pill competitors, but it is also possible that the product developed such a bad vibe the manufacturer decided to throw in the towel, take down the official website, and get rid of existing stock via Amazon.

What the Trimplex Elite is Supposed to Do

Trimplex Elite ReviewAccording to the affiliate sites, Trimplex Elite is intended to support weight loss in several ways.

  • Accelerating the metabolism
  • Suppressing the appetite
  • Boosting fat burning abilities
  • Increasing energy levels

Many brands of diet pill are sold with similar claims, but that is not surprising. The metabolism governs the way the body uses calories. A slow metabolism uses calories slowly and increases the chance of weight gain. A fast metabolism uses calories more quickly and this may cause the body to run short on calories. Especially for people who are already following a calorie-reduced diet. When the body runs out of calories it burns fat instead. Energy boosters are added to diet pills to prevent diet-related fatigue.

Trimplex Elite Review

The Key Ingredients and Their Potential 

The inclusion rates are not available but, according to one website, Trimplex Elite contains green coffee bean extract and raspberry ketone. Neither of these ingredients will boost energy levels though, so it is possible the pills contain other ingredients as well.

Green coffee bean extract contains a metabolism boosting agent called chlorogenic acid. It has a good reputation for delivering results and is often considered to be potent enough to use as a standalone weight loss provider. Raspberry ketone has also earned the respect of dieters all around the world, and has won the favor of the American weight loss guru, Dr. Oz. It provides a double-whammy of benefits by suppressing the appetite and helping the body to start torching its fat.

Usage Guidelines – Two pills are required per day—one before breakfast is eaten and another one before eating dinner.

The Best Place to Buy Trimplex Elite

As far as we can tell, the only way buy Trimplex Elite is to visit, but it is unclear how long this will remain the case and it is only possible to purchase it with a companion product. The package costs €100 (USD$ 112).

Customer Comments

Most of the affiliate sites feature glowing testimonials that make the product seem like a good diet pill to buy, but the only reliable source of feedback is Amazon and the customer complaint sites.

A few average reviews read:

“I ordered a free bottle of Trimplex Elite and had my card billed for over $140 a couple of weeks later. Apparently there’s some small print that says you have to pay for the product if you don’t say you don’t want it within 14 days of placing your order. It took the buggers over 3 weeks to get the pills to me–what the f*^K?”
“These capsules are a scam. Do not buy this product. It does not work and it costs a bomb.”
“No weight loss at all. These pills are not fit for purpose. Do not buy.”

Side Effects and Other Issues

The two ingredients disclosed are good for providing safe weight loss, but Trimplex Elite may contain other ingredients as well. Anyone who orders this product should get their doctor’s approval before they begin using it.

The Final Judgment

Trimplex Elite appears to contain a couple of respected diet pill ingredients, but the inclusion rates are unknown and lots of past customers have made complaints about Trimplex Elite and the company marketing it. These two facts alone suggest Trimplex Elite is not one of the better options for anyone who hopes to lose weight. However, bearing in mind the limited options available to people who want to buy Trimplex Elite, further evaluation is pointless.

PhenElite Review – With Customer Comments Positive and Negative

PhenElite ReviewPhenElite is a diet pill sold via

The label states the pills are “manufactured for Boost Marketing”. We found the company website and discovered the firm is based in Michigan, USA, and specializes in marketing their clients’ products via Amazon.

They are not a manufacturer; and neither the PhenElite bottle nor the Amazon sales page state the name of the company responsible for creating the pills.

This presents cause for concern because there is no way of knowing if the pills are produced to the high levels of standard expected by the FDA and other regulatory bodies that have been established to protect consumer health.

How PhenElite is Designed to Work

The pills are designed to help people to lose weight by:

  • Enabling them to burn fat faster.
  • Boosting the metabolism.
  • Breaking down stubborn fat cells
  • Minimizing hunger cravings
  • Enhancing energy levels

Customers are told the product will give them the healthy body they deserve. They are also promised the effects will be visible in just a few days. There is no explanation provided about how any of this will be achieved.

Usage Instructions – The label states one to two capsules are required half-an-hour before meals. The capsules should be taken with 8oz of water. The product needs to be used alongside a sensible diet and exercise program.

PhenElite Ingredients

Two capsules provide 1200mg of a proprietary blend but the present blend is very different from the original one.

The differences are so great they may as well be different products, but the caffeine in the present blend should be capable of providing the promised energy enhancement (presuming enough is included) and it is also a proven fat burner and metabolism booster.

African mango can suppress the appetite and raspberry ketone can as well. Both are also respected fat burners and so is acai. Green tea is also one of the better ingredients. Its ability to burn fat has been proven and it provides antioxidants that encourage good health. The value of apple cider vinegar and grapefruit powder is disputable. Both are said to support weight loss, but neither has abilities that have been adequately proven.

The Bottom Line: The blend contains ingredients that are known to have abilities that could help it achieve all of the promised results, but it also contains ingredients that are less credible and the proportions and percentages are not provided. It is impossible to predict how these pills will work just by looking at the information provided.

Is There Any PhenEliteCustomer Feedback?

There are over 7000 customer reviews on Amazon. Around 55% of them award the product top marks, but 16% of customers say the product let them down.

The rest of the reviews fall somewhere in between. Although 16% may not sound particularly damming, it means over 1100 customers consider the product a fail. It is also possible some of the five-star reviews may be biased because many of the reviewers admit they were given free diet pills in exchange for their write-up.

A few average reviews read:

“Me and my man both started using these pills four weeks ago. I’ve lost 8 pounds and he’s lost 6. We’ve both found it easier to do without our snacks and our energy levels are much higher than before.”
“Wow! These pills are TOTAL TRASH. I can’t believe I let myself get fooled again. I took them for a month and never experienced any benefits at all.”
“I have to admit PhenElite stopped me from feeling hungry. I have lost around 15 pounds since I first started using them. They work. I’m happy. I can recommend.”
“I absolutely do not recommend these pills. They made me feel extremely sick and it lasted all day. Please don’t waste your money on something that can make you feel so horrible.”
“I’m a 25 year old female and I took these pills for 30 days. I ate healthy foods, I exercised a lot. I only lost 2 pounds. There’s something wrong here. I can’t believe these pills are rated so highly.”

Some Safety Considerations

Customer reviews suggest side effects are not uncommon. Some customers say use of the pills resulted in hart burn and other minor negative reactions. Others report more frightening problems and one customer said he thought his heart began racing so fast it terrified him. Bearing this in mind, anyone who is considering using the pills would be wise to check with their physician before doing so.

PhenElite Review Conclusion

The lack of inclusion rates makes it impossible to predict how these pills are likely to perform and the presence of such plentiful customer feedback means nothing. On the face of it, feedback would seem to suggest the pills may work for some people and not for others. But things are more complicated because the blend has been changed.

We have no way of knowing how long ago the change was made, but it is possible most of the present feedback refers to the old formulation. The present one may be superior, or it could be 10 times worse.

Where to Buy PhenElite

Boost Marketing only distribute PhenElite via Each bottle of pills should last for 30 days and the price is $24.99 (£20.60). A money back guarantee is promised, but its duration is not specified.
