Feel like you always tend to gain weight in the same spots? Wouldn’t it be great if you could decide exactly where you lost weight? That’s what Giant Sports Products is promising with Dexamine.
Dexamine is a diet pill advertised as “a monumental advancement in the science of specific fat remodeling.” Using natural ingredients, Dexamine attempts to target fat burning around your waist. In fact, Dexamine says it decreases your waist by up to 2.2 inches in 2 weeks.
Of course, “up to 2.2 inches” also includes “zero inches.” To find out where in this range Dexamine is likely to take you, I did some extra research on this diet pill.
Who Makes Dexamine?
Dexamine is manufactured and sold by Giant Sports Products, a New Jersey-based company specializing in sports nutrition supplements.
Unfortunately, Giant Sports doesn’t give us much information about themselves. The “About Us” page on GiantSportsProducts.com continually refers to “these 2 guys” who are never named or identified. In fact, for all the text on the page, there’s nothing remotely concrete said about Giant Sports.
This is a common gimmick in the supplement industry. Instead of telling us who’s behind the company, or how long the company’s been in business, we get filled in on the company “vision.” But that doesn’t tell us anything about the quality of the product.
I’m not saying Giant Sports Products is hiding for a reason. However, I always trust companies more when they fully disclose who they are and what they do. Let’s hope the Dexamine formula is more forthcoming than its makers.
What’s in Dexamine?
Dexamine is a 455 mg proprietary blend with 10 ingredients. This is a pretty small proprietary blend for so many ingredients, which makes me fear many ingredients won’t be included in their proper doses.
However, I’m going to look at the actual ingredients before I make a determination about the formula.
As an inexpensive and moderately effective stimulant, caffeine is a major part of many diet pills. It stimulates greater action in the central nervous system, which raises internal body temperature and boosts metabolism. This also creates extra energy.
Also known as lyceum, goji berry is a Chinese fruit high in fiber and minerals. This suppresses your appetite by helping you feel fuller for a longer time period. Goji berry is also considered an adaptogen, which means it improves exercise endurance.
Black tea is derived from the camellia sinesis plant. It raises energy levels, improves mental alertness, and prevents obesity-related complications like heart disease and stroke. In combination with other ingredients like caffeine, it’s believed to induce weight loss. However, there are no studies testing black tea’s effects as a weight loss supplement.
Green tea is another popular weight loss ingredient. It works much like caffeine, burning fat and boosting metabolism by stimulating the central nervous system. It also contains high antioxidant levels, which powers the immune system and keeps you healthy while trying to lose weight.
Advantra-Z is yet another powerful stimulant. Based on synephrine, Advantra-Z is considered a “chemical cousin” to the now-banned weight loss ingredient ephedra. According to advertisements, Advantra-Z provides all the weight loss benefits of ephedra without the side effects. However, synephrine is still considered “possibly unsafe” when taken for weight loss.
Dexamine contains some powerful stimulants. However, without exact ingredient amounts it’s impossible to know if Dexamine will be effective. Green tea, for example, is needed in 300 mg daily doses to trigger weight loss. That would take up a large part of the Dexamine proprietary blend if it’s included in its proper amount. Even then, other ingredients would likely be in ineffective doses.
This is why I always prefer diet pills that don’t use proprietary blends.
Can Dexamine Cause Side Effects?
Another problem with not knowing Dexamine’s ingredient dosage is that it makes me unable to judge side effect severity. I can tell you which side effects are associated with certain ingredients, but without ingredient amount, it’s impossible to say whether these side effects will be severe, moderate, or present at all.
However, because Dexamine contains some powerful stimulants, you may experience:
• Rapid heartbeat
• Increased risk of heart attack and stroke
Caffeine and green tea can cause these side effects, but Advantra-Z is likely behind the severity. Due to Advantra-Z, I wouldn’t recommend taking Dexamine if you are stimulant-sensitive.
Where’s the Best Place to Buy Dexamine?
Dexamine is available in the United States, Canada, and Australia. If you’re in the U.S., you can find the following pricing options for Dexamine:
Price: Available to members only
This isn’t a bad price range for a diet pill of this kind. In fact, most diet pills with these ingredients tend to be $20-$30 more expensive.
Should You Try Dexamine?
Dexamine contains powerful ingredients with an affordable price tag. However, given the proprietary blend and the inclusion of Advantra-Z, I wouldn’t recommend this product for everyone. If you do buy it, know you’re taking a gamble.
