My Name is Taiylah and I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to be the guest author for this PhenQ review because it’s the supplement that changed my life.
You wouldn’t believe it if you could see me now but, up until two years ago, I used to be clinically obese. I hated it.
All those guys nudging each other and sniggering when they looked at me, the comments I used to hear people saying behind my back, and always feeling sweaty and out of breath.
I was fat and miserable and no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t make any progress with my attempts to lose weight.
The diet pills I tried didn’t work and one brand made me terribly ill.
To be honest, I didn’t expect much when I bought my first bottle of PhenQ and it had just been launched so there weren’t many reviews.
The reviews I did find were very encouraging, but I still may not have bought PhenQ if it wasn’t for the guarantee. Back then nobody was offering a 60-day money back guarantee.
To cut a long story short, I could feel the tablets working right from the start.
I was no longer bothered by hunger pangs between my meals and it became easier to eat smaller portions.
My energy levels increased, which helped encourage me to get more exercise, and I felt much better in myself.
I only lost two pounds on the first week……
That might not sound like much but it was progress so I was over the moon.
The second week I lost four pounds and, as I settled into my new routine of eating less and taking long walks I was losing three to five pounds per week.
By the time I’d lost my first stone I was feeling fitter and healthier so I swapped walking for jogging and things really started to take off.
Earlier this year I went on holiday and met someone and, after a whirlwind romance, we got married.
I am now happier and healthier than I have ever been in my life and I know all of this was made possible on the day I hit the “Buy Now” button and ordered my first bottle of PhenQ.
What Is PhenQ?
PhenQ is a multi-functional diet pill that is designed to offer cover all the bases and provide people who wish to lose weight with all the tools they need to achieve weight loss success.
Customer reviews left by tens of thousands of happy customers show the scientists and nutrition experts responsible for developing the PhenQ weight loss formulation have done an excellent job.
When the product was launched in 2015, it made a very big splash and, in a matter of months, became the most successful and talked about diet pill in the world.
Who Makes PhenQ?
PhenQ is manufactured by Wolfson Berg. The company is a global contract manufacturer of private label health and wellness products and has over 30 years of experience in the supplement industry.
All their products are produced in state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, under the close scrutiny of the Wolfson Berg medical and scientific advisory board, and the quality standards are incredibly high.
Wolfson Berg’s reputation and experience in the supplement industry is second to none.
The company is a key player in the field of supplement consultancy and more than 100 brands, across 10 countries, rely on Wolfson Berg for all their private labelling and supplement manufacturing needs.
This is no fly-by-night company and the outstanding success of PhenQ is but one of many reasons why Wolfson Berg continues to be a respected world-class supplement supplier.
How Is PhenQ Different from Other Diet Pills?
Although there are a few other diet pills that are designed to provide support in multiple areas, most of them fall well short of the mark.
One of the main things that makes PhenQ so different is it succeeds where other brands fail and actually does what its supposed to do.
PhenQ supports dieters in five ways:
- By suppressing hunger
- By accelerating fat burning
- By preventing the formation of fresh fat cells
- By boosting energy levels
- By providing mood enhancement
Let’s take a look at why the fact that PhenQ is the real deal is such a big deal:
Make no bones about it, if you want to lose weight you will need to reform your eating habits because it’s all the bad things you put into your mouth that caused your weight to become a problem in the first place.
That’s going to mean making more sensible food choices including saying goodbye to favourite foods that are high in sugar and fat.
It’s also going to mean you will have to make do with smaller food portions at mealtimes and resist the urge to snack.
Want the truth in a nutshell? For most people, doing this is going to be hard as hell.
Nobody likes to feel hungry, and sticking to a calorie-controlled diet means you are likely to feel hungry a lot. Especially in the early stage of your diet.
Hunger urges can distract you from your work, affect your concentration, stop you from sleeping, and make you feel miserable 24 hours a day.
That’s why so many dieters throw in the towel and decide they will settle for being fat.
The fact that PhenQ contains powerful appetite suppressing ingredients, and one that’s been added specially to prevent sugar urges, allows it to silence growling stomachs and make hunger urges go away.
That means you will never have to settle for being fat ever again.
Accelerated Fat Burning
The reason calorie-controlled dieting is so important is because the reduction in calories causes the body to become so short of energy it has to start looking for an alternative source of calories.
That means using its backup supply. That’s all those calories it has already stored away in those neat little packages called fat cells.
When used with a low-calorie diet, the appetite suppressing ability of PhenQ would be enough to cause fat loss on its own, but it may not be fast fat loss so the formulation is designed to accelerate the process by increasing the basal metabolic rate and providing thermogenic fat burning.
The basal metabolic rate (BMR) affects the body’s calorie burning speed and, when the BMR is increased, the body starts burning extra calories.
All the time. Even during the hours of sleep. Those few extra calories soon mount up.
Thermogenic fat burning is a name used to describe a process that causes the body to lose energy as heat.
This process is ongoing. That’s why human flesh feels warm. Thermogenic fat burning diet pills cause the body to become slightly warmer and lose a little more heat. The heat that is lost is produced by burning calories.
Preventing the Formation of Fat Cells – Fat Blocking
The appetite suppressing and fat burning capabilities of PhenQ should ensure a calorie shortage that has the body burning fat pretty much 24 hours a day but nothing is perfect.
It’s conceivable that there may be times when the calorie-counting goes awry and the body gets a few too more calories than it needs and could store them as fat.
Though not much, that fat would need to be burned off later.
Nobody wants to take three or four steps forward and then one step back, so the PhenQ formulation is designed to prevent this from happening.
Boosting Energy Levels
Calories are the body’s fuel, so it stands to reason any interruption in the supply can result in fatigue.
Food-provided calories can be processed and put to use a lot faster than the ones that have been locked away in the fat, so the PhenQ formulation contains ingredients that provide extra stimulation and help prevent feelings of weariness.
The energy boosting ability of PhenQ will also be useful for anyone who wishes to further increase the calorie shortage in their body by getting extra exercise.
Most diet pill manufacturers never give this a second thought, but dieting can be an emotionally draining experience.
Even when you have managed to avoid the sugar and hunger urges, avoiding favourite foods and tasty flavours you’ve been enjoying for years can be a pretty miserable experience.
No wonder so many dieters say their diets are getting them down. Wolfson Berg has addressed this fact by adding some mood enhancing ingredients.
A Look at the Ingredients in PhenQ
Each PhenQ Tablet provides:
- a-LACYS RESET (25mg)
- Nopal (20mg)
- Capsicum Extract (From Capsimax) (8mg)
- Niacin Powder (From Capsimax) (4.5mg)
- Piperine Extract (From Capsimax) (3mg)
- L-Carnitine Furmarate (150mg)
- Caffeine Anhydrous (142.5mg)
- Chromium (From Chromium Picolinate) (10mcg)
- Calcium Carbonate
a-LACYS RESET – Metabolism Booster
a-LACYS RESET is a revolutionary new ingredient that’s been scientifically proven to boost weight loss and it’s presence in the formulation accounts for a lot of PhenQ’s power.
a-LACYS RESET is a fat burner that works by boosting the metabolism and increasing thermogenesis.
Think of it as spanner that can “reset” your metabolism and adjust the thermostat in your fat burning machine to get the engine running hot.
Countless clinical studies attest to its power and a-LACYS RESET also has the ability to burn through body fat while increasing muscle mass. This is a rare ability. It’s an important one too.
In the normal state of affairs, the calorie shortage necessary for weight loss can cause a slight reduction in muscle mass.
That’s not good because muscle tissue requires a constant supply of calories to maintain it. So any loss of muscle mass can diminish the body’s ability to burn fat.
The fact that a-LACYS RESET actually increases muscle mass is a real bonus and the participants in one study achieved a 3.8% improvement in muscle mass. This was accompanied by a 7.24% decrease in body fat.
Nopal – Appetite Suppressant
Nopal is a cactus extract that’s recognized as being one of the best natural appetite suppressants in the world.
Its use in this role can be traced back hundreds of years. Indian tribesmen used to chew on chunks of nopal cactus flesh to ward off distracting hunger pangs during long hunting trips.
Nopal is also rich in amino acids that can help nourish the muscles, but one of the most interesting things about the ingredient is its ability to block the absorption of dietary fat.
Every gram of fat that is eaten normally provides the body with nine calories.
That’s a lot and calories can mount up quickly. However, research shows nopal has the ability to reduce fat absorption.
Putting this in simple terms, supplementing with nopal allows you to poop away a few extra calories instead of absorbing them.
Capsimax – Fat Burner
Capsimax is an award-winning capsicum extract that’s obtained from red chilli peppers and has been specially designed to burn fat without causing a burning sensation in the stomach.
It’s a powerful ingredient that’s gained a lot of respect for its ability to provide strong appetite suppression and intense fat burning but, although the key ingredient is capsicum, the blend also contains a little niacin and some piperine.
The amazing thing is, instead of simply stating the PhenQ formulation contains Capsimax, Wolfson Berg have placed precise information on the label that shows the three ingredients Capsimax contains, along with their quantities.
Capsicum extract is the main ingredient—no surprise there—and research proves this fiery fat burner’s ability to increase diet-induced thermogenesis and lipid oxidation.
And there’s more.
Capsicum suppresses the appetite as well.
The other two ingredients in Capsimax are niacin and piperine.
Niacin is a B Vitamin that can boost energy levels, improve mental focus, stimulate the release of human growth hormone, and provide many other benefits. Piperine is a black pepper extract that improves the bioavailability of other ingredients.
L-Carnitine Furmarate – Fights Fatigue
Research conducted in Rome suggests supplementing with L-Carnitine may be a good way to manage fatigue.
This versatile ingredient is also capable of fighting depression and enhancing the mood. L-Carnitine offers extra value in a weight loss formulation such as this because it’s a fat burner too.
Like many of the other ingredients in PhenQ, this potent caffeine provider serves multiple roles.
Ask anyone what caffeine is good for, and the first thing they are likely to say is providing energy. They’d be right.
The energy-boosting capability of caffeine is second to none and it also improves mental focus and defogs the mind.
However, although some people may be aware caffeine is a proven fat burner as well, the fact that it can suppress the appetite is not so widely known.
Chromium Picolinate – Balances Blood Sugar Levels
Chromium is a valuable mineral found in wholegrain foods, vegetables, and meat.
It’s been added to the PhenQ formulation because it has the ability to prevent the battle between blood sugar and insulin that often occurs just after a meal and can result in cravings for food that is rich in sugar or high in carbohydrate.
Although there are other ingredients that provide chromium, research suggests chromium picolinate is the most powerful option.
Calcium Carbonate – Accelerates Weight Loss
Another mineral that can help you to lose weight.
Research conducted on obese adults shows calcium has the ability to accelerate weight and fat loss when used alongside a calorie controlled diet.
The same research shows calcium also inhibits fresh fat cell formation.
The Correct Dosage and How to Get the Best From PhenQ
Although many diet pills are designed to be taken three or four times per day, PhenQ is so powerful two doses per day is enough to provide 24-hour weight loss support.
Only one tablet is needed each time. The first one should be taken with breakfast and the second one with lunch.
If you want to get the best from PhenQ you will need to avoid skipping doses.
That kind of thing can be habit forming. You need to be burning fat 24/7 so that you are constantly moving forward.
If you are serious about losing weight, you will also need to take a serious look at your diet, cut out all the foods that are high in fat and sugar, and replace them with healthier options.
Bearing in mind the power of the product, exercise is not strictly necessary but increasing your level of physical activity is a good way of obtaining even better results.
Praise For PhenQ
When I bought my first bottle of PhenQ it was still a brand-spanking-new product so there were only a few reviews available. That was over two years ago.
Since then PhenQ has succeeded in helping more than 200,000 people to lose weight and there are so many positive reviews, if you printed them all out and bound them, anyone who looked at your bookshelf would think you’d been buying a new set of encyclopedias.
You don’t need a degree in biochemistry to see the tablets contain a powerful formulation of ingredients, but it’s always confidence building to read that a product works as well in the real world as it appears to do on paper.
PhenQ is product that people like to be associated with …. it’s Instagrammable
Here are few PhenQ reviews I selected at random:
Buying PhenQ and Finding the Best Deal for You
Fortunately, the fact that PhenQ has got such a good reputation has not encouraged Wolfson Berg to push up the price.
A 30-day supply of tablets costs no more than most other options and is actually cheaper than a few of the other products I paid for only to find they didn’t work.
You can only buy PhenQ from the official site. Wolfson Berg doesn’t add any extra charges for shipping.
If you have a lot of weight to lose, I suggest you place an order for three bottles of PhenQ because it will enable you to get two extra bottles free of charge. Sometimes Wolfson Berg adds a free companion product as well.
The PhenQ website also occasionally has flash sales that allow you to bag a discount of up to 20%.
The offers usually expire quickly though. So if you get lucky and visit the site while the offer is there, I suggest you don’t dawdle too long before placing your order. A 20% discount is very good.
There are a lot of diet pill options available and I know from my own experience many manufacturers trick people into buying their products by telling a pack of lies.
I was duped into buying their snake oil time and time again before I bought my first bottle of PhenQ and I’m sure many other people reading this review will have had similar experiences.
I love this product and I recommend it 100%, but I know how hard it is to place your trust in any diet pill, no matter how good the reviews.
I was the same and may never have placed my first order if it was not for the 60-day money back guarantee.
Before I learned to trust the product, I trusted the guarantee.
If you still have your doubts I suggest you do the same.
