Phentramine Uses

When people have unsuccessfully tried to control their weight, they often consider taking weight loss supplements such as Phentramine. This herbal supplement contains several active ingredients, but it is unclear as to how exactly it works for weight loss. Studies have not shown Phentramine to be safe or effective for this use, and Phentramine uses in children may not be safe.

Phentramine Uses: An Overview

Phentramine™ is an herbal weight loss supplement. Please note that this product is not the same as phentermine (notice the slight difference in spelling), a prescription weight loss medication.
 
With obesity on the rise (see Obesity Statistics), many people are searching for "quick fixes" for weight loss. Although the ideal weight loss plans focus on gradual weight loss by eating a healthy diet and increasing physical activity (see How to Lose Weight), many people have difficulty following such plans or feel they need extra assistance in their efforts. Before turning to drastic measures, such as weight loss surgery, many people consider weight loss pills, especially if they have unsuccessfully tried to control their obesity and exercise and diet have been ineffective.
 
Phentramine has not been shown to be safe or effective for weight loss. In addition, the name is quite deceptive, as it sounds (and looks) like phentermine, a prescription weight loss drug that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
 

How Does Phentramine Work?

It is not known how (or even if) Phentramine works for weight loss. Bitter orange is a stimulant that is often used in weight loss supplements to replace ephedra, which was banned due to safety concerns. However, there is no evidence that bitter orange is any safer than ephedra. Guarana, another active ingredient in Phentramine, contains a significant amount of caffeine, which is also a stimulant. It is not known how (or if) hoodia or the other active ingredients work for weight loss.
