Introduction

Does this “all-natural fat burner” really have what it takes to melt away that stubborn belly fat? We’re told that it can produce healthy weight loss using all natural ingredients – sounds great, but is that really the case?

In this Apidren review, we’re taking an in-depth look into this product to establish what we believe consumers can and cannot expect from it.

Readers please note that statements on this page are fair comment based on observation. This content is produced on a matter of public interest.

What Is Apridren?

Apidren is a self-proclaimed weight loss pill produced by a US-based sports nutrition brand named Advantage Nutraceuticals, LLC (trading as Apidren).

Apridren is available via the official website (www.apidren.com) and Amazon. It may also be available through other supplement stores.

One bottle of Apidren costs $49.95, contains 60 capsules and will last users for approximately 1 month based on the directions of consuming 2 capsules per day.

While the official website is still active, Advantage Nutraceuticals marked as “out of business” on the Better Business Bureau – as a result, we are unable to gain further insight into their trading reputation or access any customer reviews on the company themselves.

Arguably one of the more popular diet pills on the market, Apridren is a product targeted towards those who are looking to lose weight quickly.

Unlike most other fat burners that contain work by elevating user metabolic rates to increase the rate of fat burning, Apidren only contains a 400mg proprietary blend of two active, non-stimulant ingredients: Sphaeranthus Indicus extract and Garcinia Mangostana extract; both of these ingredients together are better known as the popular weight loss formulation Meratrim.

Consumers of Apidren are told to expect effects such as fast weight loss results and reduced belly circumference (we believe they hinting towards the product burning belly fat specifically, though we may be mistaken).

Does Apidren Work?

Based on our research into this product, we believe that Apidren may be useful for the purposes of losing weight provided consumers use it correctly and set their expectations accordingly.

We believe that there is a lot of misinformation floating around about Apidren, so it’s important for us to clear that up first. The Apidren diet pills are by no means a miracle fat burning formula – the product does not contain any ingredients that will directly and independently “burn body fat” or suppress user appetite levels to any significant extent.

With that being said, it may be helpful for weight loss for a certain percentage of users, but unfortunately the effects will not be 100% consistent for everybody who uses the product.

The main study conducted into using a blend of phaeranthus Indicus extract and Garcinia Mangostana extract (Meratrim) for weight loss showed that when 800mg was used daily for 8 weeks in conjunction with a low calorie diet, certain test participants lost weight. For clarity – that main study was financed by the company that makes Meratrim, so there is obviously some conflict of interest.

The bottom line is, Apidren won’t magically melt away your body fat. It is best viewed as a weight loss support product, rather than a quick fix to an unhealthy lifestyle that has caused you to gain weight. As long as you’re willing to put yourself on a low calorie diet and regularly exercise, there’s no reason why you won’t see weight loss results using Apidren as a helping hand.

Our Final Verdict On Apidren

To conclude our Apidren review, it’s a bit of a mixed bag – there are things that we like about it and things that we aren’t too blown away by.

There is some evidence to suggest it may help support weight loss, but when it comes down to it, Apidren is just an expensive Meratrim pill. We think that so much more could have been done while formulating these diet pills; overall it just seems a bit lazy repackaging an already-popular proprietary blend that can be bought for cheap as a generic.

Apidren state that the proprietary blend inside the product is backed by clinical studies, however when looking further into these studies we found that only a certain percentage of participants lost weight.

If you’ve got determination and willpower to lower your daily caloric intake and exercise regularly, Apidren may be a useful tool to help you reach your weight loss goals, just remember it’s going to take some time.
