Question
Posted by: Johan | 2010/11/08

Nuphedrine

I would like to get a professional opinion of a product called Nuphedrine. The ingredients are (from a promotional website):

What are the ingredients of Nuphedrine® ?
Pure, certified, 20X South African Hoodia. Advantra-Z®  in the 30X potency and Slimaluma® . That’ s all –  no fillers and no cheap ingredients.

Can this possibly be effective?

Dear Johan
I really cannot say if Nuphedrine will assist with weightloss or not, because there is no indication what Slimaluma contains??? Going by the name "Nuphedrine" it is possible that this Slimaluma may contain a form of ephedrine or pseudo-epinephrine or synephrine, which can be can be potentially harmful. These components can cause a long list of negative side-effects (dependence, addiction, tremors, insomnia, palpitations, irritability, psychotic reactions). These products have been banned in many countries because of their negative side-effects, which include addiction and dependence. Then there is the Hoodia component which may or may not contribute to weightloss. Just at present there is a controversy raging about Hoodia and no one knows if the products on the market actually contain pure Hoodia extract or not. In addition, I have not yet seen the results of controlled clinical trials conducted with pure Hoodia extract. Until we receive such results and they show that Hoodia does help with weightloss, I cannot recommend its use. Rather use a low-fat high-fibre diet and plenty of regular exercise to lose your weight without harming your health.
Best regards
