Apidexin Review

There are a few diet pills marketd by using similar names to prescription diet drugs.  Clearly, Apidexin is one of them.  Apidexin uses what is clear marketing hype to name its product using the well know prescription diet pill Adipex by adding “in” to the diet drug name and switching the p and d in Adipex.  The truth is that Apidexin is just another over the counter supplement diet pill (and is not a prescription).  Moreover, the ingredients in Apidexin are similar to many other over the counter diet pills.  Apidexin’s name may likely confuse a lot of dieters.  Take caution Apidexin is not the same as the Adipex diet drug.

Addionally, Apidexin’s incredible weight loss claims seem too good to be true.  Claims of weight loss greater than 2 pounds per week run counter to the FTC’s red flags of diet products to avoid.  Adipexin health claims include “stronger than Prescription Weight Loss Medications” and lose “4-7 Pounds Per Week Effortlessly?”  Now can a dieter really lose 4-7 pounds per week with Apidexin? And is it likely that its blend of “clinically proven” and patented (or patent-pending”) ingredients really outperform prescription weight loss medications when it comes to weight loss clinical studies?

To begin, the terms “patented” and “patent-pending” do not on their own show that a weight loss product actually works. Of course, diet pill marketers use these terms to market their weight loss products, while it’s a common misconception that the patenting process involves some sort of critical showing or proof of a product’s effectiveness in losing weight.  That’s not the case at all.  A patent is simply a legally-recognized grant of property rights over an invention,  formula, or design and does not equate to a diet product that really “works” for everyone.

Clearly, Apidexin “clinically proven” claims needs to be taken with caution as there is no clinical data that indicates the specific blend of ingredients in Apidexin is effective nor is there evidence to indicate it “outperforms” prescription weight loss drugs.   Moreover we could not determine if the amounts of the Adipexin ingredients correspond to amounts used in the clinical study cited, or if they are used for marketing “label dressing” purposes.  As a single capsule dose of only 500 mg of these ingredients, it is patently obvious that much of the Adipexin ingredients are present in dosages too low to have a meaningful effect.

Adipexin lacks real credible published human trials evidence to support its health claims. Have you used Apidexin? Please feel free to post your comments and read what others have had to say about this product!

Not withstanding Apidexin obvisouly incredible weight loss claims , let’s review Apidexin’s weight loss ingredients including.

1) Fucoxanthin: While we have reviewed several diet products containing this ingredient, many with claims of scientific studies backing them up; research we conducted shows (Br J Nutr. 2008 Jan 11;1-5) that fucoxanthin has extremely low bioavailablilty in humans, wherein the body does not absorb it easily.   However, we did find credible studies that were performed on rats or mice; and clearly we could not find these “incredible” human based studies published anywhere credible.  Obvisouly, one might surmize that the “clinically proven” claims at best should be questioned.

2) Razberi-K™, here the Apidexin web site states that in a study (Morimoto et al, 2005), test subjects were fed a high fat diet to induce obesity while treated groups were also fed an additional 1 or 2% raspberry ketone. The treated groups gained less body fat than the control groups. However, the test subjects in this study were mice, and not humans (see Life Sci. 2005 May 27;77(2):194-204. Epub 2005 Feb 25).  Clearly, a single, small positive animal study only works to confirms is the need for more studies; first with animals, and then on humans.  Again, this weight loss ingredient did not show the sort of credible scientific human studies to validate Razberi-K’s weight loss effects in humans.

3) GuggulEZ100™; when it comes to guggulsterones, and specifically the E&Z guggulsterones, which have been used in weight loss aides for years, our research revealed there was a small amount of evidence that indicates guggulsterones may also have value as a fat burner (see J Postgrad Med. 1995 Jan-Mar;41(1):5-7) specifically by increasing thyroid T3 hormone levels.   However, data validating guggul’s cholesterol-lowering characteristics is contradictory; an earlier study indicated it did (see J Assoc Physicians India. 1989 May; 37(5):323-8), while a later study published in The Journal Of The American Medical Association showed it did not.   The Apidexin web site also states that guggul can support a fine skin texture by decreasing the appearance of blemishes,  however, we did not find scientific studies to support this claim.  While our research did reveal some evidence that guggul may help with a severe type of acne called nodulocystic acne (see J Dermatol 1994:;21:729-31) we did not locate other more meaningful research.  And while Apidexin also claims that Guggul EZ 100 won’t strip away your muscle like other weight loss products our research could not find any clinical trials to validate this.

4) Thermodiamine™ also know as evodiamine is a Chinese fruit that some claim burns fat by increasing the body’s metabolism, as well as reducing the body’s ability to store fat.  While these health claims ought to be “scientifically” proven. Our research shows they haven’t been scientifically proven in humans. And while there have been some promising “in vitro” studies and some done on rodents, the question reamins if this product has positive weight loss effect for humans (see Planta Med. 2001 Oct;67(7):628-33 for more details).

4) Forslean® standardized for forskohliin, a common weight loss ingredient and beyond all its marketing hype about its fat loss ability, our research found that the weight loss effects of coleus forskohlii have only been established in a few small animal studies. And Human studies (see, Journal of Obesity Research August 2005, “Body Composition and Hormonal Adaptations Associated With Forskolin Consumption In Overweight and Obese Men”), did not yield overwhelming weight loss results.   One study (see, Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition. 2(2):54-62, 2005) even summarizd that… “Results suggest that CF (coleus forskohlii) does not appear to promote weight loss but may help mitigate weight gain in overweight females.”

5) Lipolide-SC™; standardized for sclareolide, or clary sage extract however we’re sorry to say that our research did not uncover any independent clinical human trial evidence to support clary sage extract’s amazing fat-blasting benefits.

6) Infinergy DiCaffeine Malate®; a combination of caffeine and malic acid, here Adipexin claim this “special form” of caffeine is more effective than regular caffeine, any while caffeine’s fat burning characteristics are well established (see Am J Clin Nutr. 1989 Jan;49(1):44-50, Am J Clin Nutr. 1980 May;33(5):989-97), we could not find published research to indicate that this form of caffeine is any more effective.

7) Bioperine® is simply used to improve the bioavailability of certain ingredients.

I’ve had no luck with adipxin diet pills, they do not work. unfortunately i only found these adipexin consumer complaints after buying adipexin diet pills (see more at

Apidexin Refund
So I sent back my Apidexin a while ago for a refund because it didn’t do anything for me and they finally gave me my money back. It took them about a week after it arrived, but I got it. So for those of you that were wondering if they would hold up, they did. However, I did use a delivery confirmation with it as they suggested, so I knew when to e-mail them and start asking questions.

Alright, I started taking Apidexin a week ago. My opinion: total crap. Though it did clear up my skin! ha. But I gained 2 lbs, and have only lost it because I’m fasting. It claims you can lose 4-7 lbs but I don’t know how unless it’s just water weight. I’m paranoid about water weight, gained or lost. So that obviously didn’t work for me. It gave me a little energy boost the first day or so, but not much of anything after that. It didn’t do much for my apatite, either.

Luckily they have a money back guarantee and I’m sending them back tomorrow for a refund. I’m rather disappointed. 🙁 I really hope pr0mise_m3 is having more luck than I did!

I’m thinking I’ll try Fenterdren next. Anyone heard anything about it?

I ordered the Apidexin Monday night and it got here Thursday! I took one yesterday and noticed the energy boost from it. Which is a big deal for me because almost nothing does that for me anymore. I always drink a ton of water, but I didn’t notice it dehydrating me like most diet pills do for that big first week loss. So far the only down side I’m seeing (granted, it’s only been a day so I know there will be more) is if I take it and don’t eat I get really dizzy. I have a syncope anyways, so I’m a lot more prone to this than most, but it’s really annoying. I don’t like feeling like I HAVE to eat something. There’s too much pressure. But this morning after I took it I had a breakfast bar, and the dizziness went away.

I have to lose AT LEAST 10 lbs by the end of the month. If this can do that, I’ll be happy. But so far it’s looking good. I have a really hard time with pills and such, as I’ve said before, and these don’t really have much of a smell/taste at all. They’re capsules and you take one before breakfast and one before lunch.

I’ll update after a week (or sooner depending on how it goes) and so on with results!
