Apidexin is a novel combination of ingredients which is allegedly a fat burner, but we've yet to be convinced, especially as there is no clinical trial data to judge its effectiveness. The product claims you can lose "4-7 pounds per week effortlessly" and "lose up to 400% more weight" (than what and in what timeframe aren't stated), but without the studies to back it up, we can't give Apidexin much credence.
The product claims to promote only fat loss, not general weight loss (including muscle, fat, water, and bone mass). In fact, Apidexin's manufacturers claim it contains ingredients "clinically proven to increase Lean Muscle Tissue." These include eight patent pending ingredients that allow it to burn fat--not block fat absorption as some for the most effective slimming pills do. It includes:
- Bioperine - a substance that can speed up the rate of fat absorption
- Razberi-K - a substance that allegedly help the body reduce fat levels
- Infinergy - Dicaffeine Malate - allegedly increases the body’s metabolism, while introducing higher energy levels
- Forslean 95% Forskohliin - can increase lean muscle tissue
- Lipolide-SC - a substance that can burn excess levels of fatty deposits
- Guggul EZ-100 - supposed to optimise thyroid gland function and also aids blood levels
- Thermodiamine 98% evodiamine - reportedly aids in the oxidization process
- Wakame Seaweed 10% Fucoxanthin - allegedly increases the metabolism
We're skeptical about the claims. There are limited studies about some of the ingredients, that they may promote weight loss, but this particular formulation has not been independently tested, and things like varying preparation methods or dosages may adversely impact the weight loss properties of Apidexin compared to its constituent parts. The amounts of each ingredient are not disclosed, so it is impossible to compare the dosages in Apidexin to the studies on the constituent parts and make a broader judgment about effectiveness. With so many ingredients, levels of each are likely small, which may diminish any effect it has.
In short, Apidexin may have some effectiveness, but given the lack of information provided, we simply can't tell--we'd stick with more proven weight loss supplements backed by clinical trials.
Side effects: "Fat burners" such as Apidexin are classed as stimulants and can cause restlessness, insomnia, and increased heart rate. We're concerned by claims like their Infinergy - Dicaffeine Malate "produces ephedra-like results without the side effects and "crash" of caffeine."
Prices: The standard price for a single bottle is $50 for a one-month supply--this is manufactured and shipped from the US, but it is easily available in the UK from around £30.
