Zantrim is a slimming aid that its creators, eBody, say is a “proven diet pill, developed from the latest research and information in Nutraceuticals.”
Zantrim is said to provide metabolism and energy support, helps to stop snacking and binge eating, and provides a fast stimulation boost. It has been developed to support a dieter’s weight loss goals.
When this Zantrim review was written, each vegetarian capsule contained the following ingredients: Caffeine Anhydrous, Kola Nut, Green Coffee Extract, Guarana Extract, L-Carnitine L-Tartate, Green Tea Extract, D.L. Phenylalanine, Conjugated Linoleic Acid, Vitamin B6, Chromium Picolinate, Vitamin B12.
The manufacturer’s dosage instructions recommend for users to first assess their tolerance by consuming only 1 pill per day. Once they feel they have tolerated this single dose well, they can move on to taking a second capsule daily (no more than 2 pills within a 24 hour period).
Users should take 1 capsule on an empty stomach, 30 minutes prior to eating. If they are taking the full 2 pill per day dose, the second pill should be taken at least 6 hours later but no later than 4 hours before bedtime to prevent sleep disturbances. The manufacturer also recommends drinking a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day, especially on days of exercise.
Zantrim does not hide the fact that it contains stimulants as this is stated directly on the front of the product label. That being said, you should be made aware that it contains a significant number of stimulants, most notably, caffeine. In addition to having 200 mg of caffeine per 1 capsule serving, this product contains guarana, kola nut, green coffee and green tea.
If you were to take the full two pill dose of Zantrim daily, this would be about equal to having a minimum of 4 cups of coffee, factoring in the caffeine ingredient (400 mg) alone. Since the amount of caffeine in the other ingredients, such as guarana (which is said to contain twice the concentration of caffeine found in coffee seeds) is unknown, users should likely expect an increased risk of stimulant-related side effects. These may include, trouble sleeping, jitters, anxiety, upset stomach, headache, heart palpitations, increased blood pressure, etc.
The bottom line is that there is nothing proven about Zantrim other than it contains caffeine, which research has found can enhance mental alertness. It may also help to boost energy and help those who exercise reach peak performance. However, due to the amount of caffeine in this product, one has to wonder if the risk of taking this amount of the substance outweighs its potential benefits.
Ultimately, if you are interested in taking Zantrim, this is something you should bring up with your doctor, regardless of your current state of health.
