Abrexin is a weight loss product that is advertised as a fat burner that works during the night while the user is asleep. Though there are many of these currently available on the market, rarely do they ever come with any clinical proof that there is any additional fat burned while the individual is sleeping. Often, the manufacturers of these products will add ingredients such as diuretics or laxatives to their formulas in order to help to flush out additional fluids stored in the tissues or increase the amount of bowel movements that the person will have in order to mimic the effect of weight loss.
However, those ingredients were not found to be in the Abrexin formula. What was found within the ingredients list of this product was black pepper, lactoferrin and something called GP shield, which was not identified, but is used to insulate the lactoferrin so it travels to the intestine and does not get broken down by stomach acids.
Lactoferrin is the primary ingredient in the Abrexin diet pills. This is a protein which is important to many of the body’s functions, including in supporting the immune system. It also has a number of antibacterial properties when it is found in milk (colostrums). That said, as healthy as this may or may not be, it has never been shown to produce weight loss as a whole, fat loss specifically, or thermogenesis (which is the process of burning more calories in the form of body heat).
The black pepper extract – also known as bioperine – is an ingredient that is found in a large and growing number of weight loss supplements. In Abrexin, it is used to help to better absorb the other ingredients. There has been some recent evidence that has indicated that clinical studies are saying that the body temperature may increase through its consumption. However, these same studies have also shown that the impact on the body’s temperature is not sufficient to actually burn enough calories to result in significant weight loss.
Though the GH Shield’s ingredients have not been identified, the marketing materials for Abrexin say that it is used to stop the stomach acids from breaking down the lactoferrin. The reason that this is important and what the GH Shield actually is have not been identified by the manufacturer. Doctors will rarely recommend that dieters take products where the ingredients are not fully disclosed.
Unfortunately, this information in combination with the fact that no clinical research has been provided to show that this product will have any impact on weight loss makes it very hard to recommend this product. With so many other products on the market making the same claims, it’s easier to turn to one of the alternatives.
