Zantrex 3

Zantrex is a weight loss supplement with the additional benefits of an appetite suppressant and a high energy xanthine based stimulant. It does not contain ephedra which is a big positive for this product but it still gives you all the energy you want whilst trying to attain your weight loss goals.
This product was originally marketed in Europe with a great deal of success. It has replaced the ephedrine based products which are now obsolete and a thing of the past.

Zantrex has tended to be marketed in a different way to other weight loss products. You tend not to see the tired old before and after pictures but more of the scientific clinical data that proves it is effective and will work.

So, if you are looking for something to boost your energy levels and get you past the ordinary dieting problems then why not take a look at Zantrex 3

Firstly this post looks like pure marketing blurb, what with the various links to commercial sites.

No repuatable post should be pushing a any specific seller of suppliments.

Secondly the incredients of some of these combination arrangements are very convering.

I would strongly recommend that anyone seriously considering taking supliments looks for scientific research (and avoid any research promoted by resellers, and look with suspicion on animal only studies - as they can be totally non-indicative of results with humans).

Thirdly the claims of this "wonder-supliment" combination are concerning, as is its ingredients-list.

Xenadrine in its original form contained ephedrine - which while it did effect metabolism was shown to cause heart-problems in some individuals, and possibly contributed to cardiac death in some people; and I have seen its use condemned by several cardiologists.
I am not aware of any independant testing done on the new formulation, either as to side-effects or as to effectiveness; so you are staking on thin ice if you trust their wild claims.

Finally their suggestion that this "helps depression" is conerning.
Depression is a complex disorder that may be caused by many factors -
and only in milder cases should supliments be used.
Tyrosene use in particular should be cautioned, as its use as a training aid has
questionable backing in research (one study showed no benefit), but
its as the effect of tyrosine appears to be pharmacological, it should be used with caution;
particularly on people taking depression MAO medications.
PEA: Phenylethylamine (PEA) is in early evaluation.

In short if you do suffer from depression you are far better off taking supliments with extensive _human_ testing over a long period of time, and with few if any side-effects.
Examples of this would be high Omega-3 suplimentation, St. Johns wart and possibly
Sam-E (with slightly more risks). Even bright-light therapy has been well researched in Europe (but is contra-indicated for those suffering from any bi-polar disorders).

Similarly creatine has been linked to some more minor side-effects (severe cramps, water loss, etc) which should be watched for when taking this supliment.

If you are taking unresearched combinations of compounds - each of which that are not fully tested, you are using yourself as a petri dish...Xenadrine (ephedrine) & Typtphan are just two cases to point - both earlier pushed by the diet supliment industry...
How many more are out there....?

As allways caveat emptor (buyer beware!) - there are some excellent supliment compounds available - with some very good research behind them, but be carefull of unsubstantiated claims - especially for combination supliments, and do your research (with full research artices - non-product related links) on each and every compound you are taking!
