Xenadrine XT, a very popular weight loss supplement, is manufactured by Cytogenix Laboratories. Characterized as being a stronger than the Xenadrine formula, this version does not contain any ephedrine, a controversial substance with a high degree of neurotoxicity, which can be found even today in some weight loss supplements. This product brings as novelty a higher dose of caffeine, which, according to the manufacturers, stimulates the process of burning fats by creating an extreme thermogenic effect and increasing the metabolic rate. Also, it provides extra energy for the body, to sustain it during the intense exercises. The biggest advantage of this product is that it contains clinically studied ingredients.

Xenadrine XT is recommended for healthy people who want to lose weight, but in the same time they are going to adopt a calories low diet, and an active life style, with more exercise. But work out is necessary for everyone. Otherwise, this dietary supplement rich in caffeine will not have the desired effects, or more than that, it will have negative side effects. This product is not intended for people with heart problems, for minors, for people whose bodies cannot tolerate caffeine, for people who suffer from insomnia, or for pregnant women.


1) Xenadrine XT Quick Facts

Xenadrine XT was created to speed up the weight loss process with the use of a mostly herbal composition. The main ingredient in this formula is the caffeine, a recognized stimulant for fat burning. In its natural state, it can be found in coffee, tea, soft and energy drinks, but this supplement includes a large dosage of the energizing substance, which has the ability to stimulate the fat burning process and is designed to greatly increase the energy level. On the other hand, the caffeine makes this product being not recommended for people with health problems or minors. The best course of action would be a medical examination before starting treatment.

According to the manufacturers, this weight loss supplement must be gradually taken. In the first day, you have to take one capsule, once daily. On the next two days you have to take two capsules, once daily and afterwards, if your body reacts normally, you can take two pills twice daily.


2) Details on Xenadrine XT Ingredients and Uses

Xenadrine XT contains the following ingredients: Caffeine Anhydrous, Green Coffee Bean Extract, Sage Leaf, L-Theanine, Yohimbe Bark Extract, Rhodiola Root Extract, Magnesium Stearate, Sirica, Gelatin Capsule, and Sulfite Ingredients.

3) Does Xenadrine XT Work and it is Safe?

Xenadrine XT is a multivitamin formula which not only provides nutritional support during a slimming diet. This dietary supplement also contains ingredients that act on fat burning artificially.

The caffeine anhydrous is a thermogenic ingredient which is known to increase the muscle strength. Also, the caffeine supports fat burning because firstly, it boosts your metabolism. Secondly, it gives you the energy to exercise intensively. But in the same time, caffeine dehydrates, and the adverse effects of this ingredient require a high consumption of water, especially if you are used to drinking coffee or energy drinks.

The sage leaf is native to the Mediterranean region, and it is also a diuretic ingredient. It is used since antiquity for being a hypoglycemic, placebo-controlled and estrogenic agent. The sage leaf improves the metabolism, acting against fat.

This supplement is a very popular product, but it’s also very controversial. The manufacturers realize that it can be dangerous for some people, so they recommend taking it gradually, to assess your tolerance: one capsule once daily for the first day, two capsules once daily on days two and three and only afterwards, on day four and beyond, 2 capsules twice daily (30 to 60 minutes before the two main meals).

There are some testimonials on the product website. Most of them describe situations in which people have lost 30 lbs. and 50 lbs. in just 18 weeks. According to them, these results can be obtained by combining the Xenadrine XT with a low-calorie diet and an exercise program.


4) Xenadrine XT Benefits & Results

  • Combined with a low calorie diet and hard work out, it provides rapid results
  • It is not very expensive, compared with the price of other weight loss supplements
  • It contains caffeine, a recognized fat burner and representing a strong stimulus for your metabolism
  • It increases energy levels of your body


5) Precautions of Xenadrine XT Use

  • Xenadrine XT contains a high dose of caffeine, which raises risks of supplement administration
  • Dieters should not take caffeine in another form
  • It does not work for everyone and for some people can have negative side effects (insomnia or heart disorders)
  • If is taken for too long, this supplement can encourage the caffeine addiction


6) Xenadrine XT Cost

The product cannot be bought on the manufacturer’s website, but there are some links to the main supplier’s websites, and a box has 120 pills, (enough for a month, according to “how to take Xenadrine XT”). A box of this supplement has a moderate cost compared to other weight loss supplements. The manufacturer’s website does not provide a free trial offer, so before buying this supplement, you will not know if your body tolerates it or not If you are not satisfied with the product, it’s your problem because the manufacturer does not provide a money-back guarantee.


7) Xenadrine XT Directions

Xenadrine XT can be ordered online, on the websites of suppliers, or can be purchased directly from supplement stores. There is not a large difference in price compared to other supplements (a box of the supplement contains 120 pills and it is enough for one month).


8) Conclusion

Xenadrine XT can be an extraordinary help in the burning fats process, but it will definitely not work if it is not combined with a drastic and healthy low calories diet and more exercise. It is a weight loss supplement that works fast (providing more energy and encouraging a proper functioning of the metabolism), but the high caffeine content involves many risks, so a medical examination is indicated before starting to take the supplement. If you are sensitive to caffeine, this is not the best choice in terms of nutritional supplements. There are natural weight loss alternatives good for you.

I took Xenadrine for 11 weeks but after I stopped, I started to gain weight again. I do not think it\’s worth the money. Honestly, it\’s like all slimming products.
