PhenQ v Phen375. Both products are known for their power to deliver good results, but only one product can emerge victorious. It’s true Phen375 has been around for a little bit longer than PhenQ, and has a lot of fans that think its the #1 weight loss product in the world. But the newcomer, PhenQ, delivers a powerful punch and, when it was released (2015) its ability to deliver quick results made it an instant winner with dieters the world over and it quickly became the best selling diet pill of the year.
Die-hard Phen375 fans always point out PhenQ contains a relatively new ingredient (a-LACYS RESET) and say it hasn’t been around long enough to for people to be sure it won’t cause any side effects. Members of the PhenQ camp counter this accusation easily by pointing out the ingredient is a combination of Alpha Lipoic Acid and Cysteine, and hammer the point home by stating neither one has been linked to side effects. In fact, some PhenQ fans believe the presence of a-LACYS RESET is the reason for PheQ’s phenomenal success.
Old versus new. Phen375 v PhenQ. We’ve seen a lot of diet pills come and go through the years and know its ability that counts, not how many years are on the clock, so we think this is going to be a pretty close thing.
Round 1: The Price
At the time of battle (June 2016) PhenQ was sporting a price tag of £45.95, but Phen375 was marginally more competitive at only £45.54. There’s not a lot in it, but its enough to move Phen375 into the lead.
Round 2: Guarantee
Both products have a money back guarantee, but the Phen375 guarantee is only for 30 days. The PhenQ guarantee is 60 days. That’s twice as long, so PhenQ doesn’t just even the odds it steals back the first place.
Round 3: Manufacturer Credibility
A guarantee means nothing unless the company offering it is likely to honour it and make good if customers ask for their money back. Phen375 was launched in America by RDK Global. PhenQ was initially developed in Europe by BUQ Group. Both companies are considered to be leading manufacturers, share a reputation for producing winning formulations, and have never been blacklisted by a mention on any of the internet scam boards or complaint sites. We declare this round a draw.
Round 4: Ease of Use
Dieters who use Phen375 need to take two capsules two times a day, but PhenQ appears to pack twice the punch because only one capsule is required twice per day. The capsules are slightly larger though, so it could be that the newcomer has an unfair advantage and, in the interests of fairness, this one has to be a draw.
Round 5: Health Issues
Once again, both contestants are equally matched. Neither diet pill has acquired a reputation for causing side effects, so it’s another draw.
Round 6: Fat Fighting Abilities
It’s already been quite a battle. Phen375 had an early victory in the first round, but round two proved it was no match for the young contender’s incredible 60-day money back guarantee. Since then the two products have gone head to head in a further three rounds and no progress has been made on either side. This is one of the most important rounds of the battle and each product need to show what it can do.
Phen375 offers appetite suppression, but so does PhenQ.
Phen375 is a fat burner but, once again, so is PhenQ.
But now it gets interesting.
RDK Global’s product increases the metabolic rate to help the body burn more calories. BUQ Group don’t make this claim, they counter with a promise that PhenQ can boost energy levels and then state it improves the mood as well. They then throw in a couple of more promises, stating PhenQ can prevent new fat cells from forming and block the digestion of dietary fats. Those are big claims to make, and RDK cannot compete, but the world of diet pills is renowned for its hype. Saying and doing are two different things, so we have to declare this round another draw.
Round 7: Blend Potential
This is the acid test. If anything can separate the men from the boys its a quick glance at the formulation, but once again both products have ingredients that should guarantee success, so nothing is going to get any easier.
The European version of Phen375 contains six ingredients, but the American version adds two more.
- Caffeine Anhydrous
- Chromium Picolinate
- Cayenne Pepper
- Dendrobium Nobile Orchid Extract
- Citrus Aurantium (US Formula only)
- Coleus Forskolii (US formula Only)
PhenQ contains seven active ingredients
- L-Carnitine Furmarate
- Chromium Picolinate
- Calcium Carbonate
- Capsimax Powder
- a-LACYS RESET
Both products contain some ingredients that are the same.
- L-Carnitine to improve insulin sensitivity and help burn fat (learn more at Examine.com).
- Caffeine to pump-up energy levels (learn more at Livestrong)
- Chromium to regulate blood sugar levels and control the desire for sweet food (learn more at Dr. Axe).
- Calcium to limit fat storage (learn more at WebMD)
They also share an ingredient that is similar. Phen375 contains capsicum. It’s got a lot of potential as a fat burner and also speeds up the metabolism. PhenQ contains Capsimax. It combines the powers of capsicum with other respected ingredients, including black pepper extract, which will allow them to be absorbed more easily.
It’s the middle of the final round and things still seem pretty close, but this is where PhenQ starts to drive for victory. It contains two more ingredients. One of them (a-LACYS RESET) is a powerful fat burner. The other (nopal) is a cactus extract that delivers a double-whammy of benefits by providing appetite suppression and fat blocking. The only other ingredient in Phen375 is the orchid extract Dendrobium Nobile and, although its can aid the digestive process, it is unlikely to support weight loss.
PhenQ emerges victorious, but it was a close match and although Phen375 lost in the end being the second best diet pill is no shame and, if Phen375 was fighting on its own territory, those extra two ingredients could make all the difference.
