Trying The New Xenadrine – Does It Work?

Does Xenadrine work? Or actually, does Xenadrine STILL work!

About a dozen years ago I was dating a personal trainer who suggested I try Xenadrine. It really helped me with losing the last few pounds back then.

The original Xenadrine contained Ephedra. That product “ephedra” has long been banned in the US.

I guess I was lucky. I lost weight and my energy increased dramatically, but my boyfriend made me stop after 4 weeks because he was worried about the side effects of extended use of Ephedra (even before the government got involved and banned it)

I have put on a few pounds over the years and was struggling to lose weight. I surfed on to a weight loss forum where some people were talking about Xenadrine.

After a little research I realized that most people didn’t understand there are actually 2 Xenadrines. The one from 12 years ago (that had Ephedra) and the new formulation (Ephedra free).

I decide that the only way to find out if the new Xenadrine is as effective as the old one was to actually order some and try it. (Especially considering that most of the Xenadrine reviews are for the old product).

So, I’ve ordered the pills and created this blog to document my experience with the new, Ephedra-free Xenadrine. I’ll be especially aware of any side effects. The first version did make me jumpy, hyper and a little cranky. Many people said this was from the Ephedra. I guess I’ll find out shortly.

UPDATE: Not nearly as effective as the old stuff. I’ve tried a few other supplements and programs as well. I’ve talked some other people into contributing to this blog and I’ll be posting more things related to diet, losing weight, supplements and getting shape over the next coming months.

Thanks for dropping buy

Surrounding 5-htp Max

Is life a struggle? Are you feeling tired and depressed? Do you wanna know how you can go back on top of things without taking prescription drugs? Well read on…

Insomnia, anxiety, weight, and depression loss are all conditions that 5HP will help to treat. This supplement works differently on everyone so do not be disheartened if you do not have the same results as someone else. It is also a very good idea to re-evaluate your condition after 3 months by stopping the supplement for a month.


When used to address mood swings and depression, medical professionals generally agree that taking a 100mg dose of a 5HTP supplement with a full drink of water before meals is most effective. If these are chronic conditions, it is considered safe to use 5HTP on a long-term basis. If you are taking a 5-htp supplement for mood swings and depression associated with PMS, start taking the supplement one to two weeks before the opening of the menstrual cycle’s onset.

Irritability, unstable mood and depression can likewise be caused by insomnia. Insomnia has long been associated with low melatonin levels. 5-htp supplements benefit insomnia by helping produce more serotonin. This is converted to melatonin in the brain’s pineal gland. Those having trouble getting enough rest typically get the best performance from 5htp supplements by taking 100mg to 200mg about half an hour before they wish to sleep.

It makes no difference what you’re treating the dosage is still the same, starting with a low amount of 50mg. If you do not feel any change after a while then it is reasonable to increase your dosage to 100mg. I would strongly recommend that you check with your GP if you wanna take a higher dosage than this as you can start to feel side effects.

Some side effects can be observed if you take a high dosage of 5HTP but usualy only occurs with dosages over 300mg. You need to be mindful of how you’re feeling and be alert for these side effects, another reason to assume a break after 3 months. You may notice while taking the supplement a feeling of nausea, stomach cramps, nightmares, and the absence of libido. For some people it can only be wise to take the supplement as it can make them worse. They include pregnant women, people with high blood pressure, lung disease, anorexia and if you suffer with haemophilia.

Also if you’re taking anti-depressants, cancer treatment and antibiotics as well as some other drugs then you shouldn’t take 5HTP as these will already be increasing your Serotonin levels so in effect you’ll be overdosing on it which may result to Serotonin Syndrome which can be quite serious.

Be patient and do not expect immediate results because it can sometimes take up to three weeks to enter your system before you notice any real changes in how you feel.

It is recommended that you get your daily dosage at night time, so go into a routine taking it about an hour before going to bed. By doing this, it allows your brain to build up your Serotonin level ovenight and also helps to serve as a good night’s sleep. You will wake up the next morning refreshed and ready to begin a new day.
