Zantrex-3 is a nonprescription diet pill that is designed to provide people who are trying to lose weight with “546% more weight loss than the leading ephedra-based diet pill,” says the description on the official website for the product. That same description goes on to say that this claim is “based solely on Zantrex-3’s active weight-loss component,” which doesn’t sound like it means anything and the site doesn’t go on to explain what it is implying with that statement.
For that reason, it is very important to take a closer look at Zantrex-3 before actually going on to try it. To start, taking a closer look at the initial claim is important. After all, ephedra is a banned substance in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and much of Europe, among other countries. Therefore, there isn’t a leading ephedra-based diet pill, as they are illegal to produce, sell and purchase. As a result, there aren’t any statistics against which Zantrex-3 can actually compare its weight loss claims, which implies that this data may be unreliable and sketchy, at best.
The manufacturer that produces this diet pill is Zoller Laboratories. No official website could be found for that company, though it does operate one for the product, itself.
Aside from making dubious claims about statistics sourced from an un-cited location, Zantrax-3 has also found itself in a bit of discomfort when it was part of the scandal faced by Snooki, the reality TV celebrity, who suggested that she had experienced significant weight loss after using these diet pills, only to have it revealed that she was being paid to endorse them and that her weight loss had nothing to do with taking these supplements.
The website goes to great lengths to talk about how wonderful its active ingredients are, how powerful they are as fat burners, and how effective they are, but it doesn’t actually cite any studies that would suggest that reputable research has been conducted on those substances to link their use with weight loss and to prove that they are safe to use on a regular basis.
At the time of the writing of this review, the ingredients listed in the product’s proprietary blend included: yerba mate, guarana, trimethylxanthine, damiana, green tea extract, kola seed extract, schizonepeta extract, black pepper extract, rhodiola crenulata extract, Asian ginseng root extract, maca root extract, cacao seed extract and black tea extract.
The majority of those ingredients – including four of the first five – are stimulants. It is highly likely that many dieters will experience unwanted side effects from using this product.
