Hi folks, you know me, I am always keeping an eye open for the newest and easiest weight loss items out there. This time I was chosen as one of the lucky few reviewers to review Reduxa, Inc.’s Fat Burner capsules. My interest was peeked when I noticed that among the proprietary ingredients in Fat Burner, were Green Tea Extract and Raspberry Ketone… both of which I’ve heard were shown to help with weight loss and burning fat.
Here is a product description of Fat Burner by Reduxa Inc.:
Reduxa Fat Burner Thermogenic Weight Loss Dietary Supplement, Metabolism and Energy Booster Made in USA
This product contains a proprietary formula designed to maximize weight loss by boosting fat loss and improving energy level that is safe and effective for men and women.
Garcinia Cambogia Extract has been known to hasten weight loss efforts, where some researchers claim that it can double or triple one’s weight loss. With proper dieting and exercise, the average person taking garcinia cambogia extract lost an average of four pounds a month. It is also known to work great for emotional eaters. Those who participated in the study showed an increase in their serotonin levels; hence, it may also improve mood and sleeping patters. It works by blocking fat and suppressing appetite.
Green Tea Extract contains compounds called catechins that may affect how your body burns calories and metabolizes fat, thereby helping in weight loss.
Guggul Extract helps boost metabolism and is believed to reduce cholesterol.
Raspberry Ketone is an aromatic component present in raspberries and other fruits. Scientists had previously shown that it causes fat breakdown. It prevents and improves obesity and fatty liver by stimulating the metabolism.

Let me start off with this, my disclaimer, I am testing this out without altering my diet much, nor with adding exercise to my routine. So my results, as usual will be less than most of you who would/could make a conscientious effort to change your lifestyle while using the assistance of these capsules. Most of you know my physical limitations, do to my health issues (to keep it brief, I will just say Chronic Pain & Health issues), this is why I have not made as much of an effort as most of you would do to lose weight.
With my short stature the smallest of weight changes can make a huge difference in my size. I have recently gained weight with the holidays with the addition of a new prescription, replacing my Gapapentin with Lipitor (for nerve pain from both the fibromyalgia and my pinched/damaged nerves). I was lucky fighting the medications weight gain, having the for knowledge of my Mothers weight gain when her doctors tried her on Lipitor, when they tried my skinny Mother on it she gained 35 pounds almost over night! Lucky for me I only gained 15 pounds in 3 months on it, luckily for me, I’ve been off the Lipitor and back on Gabapentin for almost a month now. Yay, perfect timing for my trying out the Fat Burner Capsules.
I ordered the Fat Burner Capsules on Amazon.com and they arrived quickly and in great shape, I was surprised at how speedy they were at getting these to my house. The capsules are about 500 mg Capsules, not too very large, they are red and white in color. I found the capsules easy to swallow, and I took them as directed, 1 capsule a day in the morning 30 minutes before a meal…. I took mine at Noon time, since breakfast, well I admit it, I am terrible about eating, fixing breakfast. I am however more likely to eat lunch at noon time. Lol After taking this proprietary blend, I haven’t found myself too jittery or burping up taste of the tablets, nor had I found myself with an upset stomach. So far so good right? 🙂
Now I must say that I was still on my Lipitor for about a week and a half as I cut down on the dosage to get off from it and on to my Gabapentin once more, so this too did, slow down my progress with the Fat Burner. Other than that I found that I had more success experimenting with the times of the day that I took it. For me I found that I could handle the ingredients in the Fat Burner even upon taking it in the Afternoon, 30 minutes before Supper time. I still could sleep well, at least for me, the capsules were not overly stimulating as some diet supplements are, so I had no problem with them at all.
All in all as the time had progressed, the weight gain from the Lipitor was halted on the Fat Burner, YAY! And for the past 2 ½ weeks (give or take a few days) I have managed to lose a total of 5 lbs! I am 1/3 the way there to my weight before my doctor put me on that prescription that caused my weight gain! Now to put this all in perspective for you, this IS really significant for me, it usually takes me 3 times as long (as it took to put the weight on) for me to lose the weight… in other words since I gained that over 3 months I would normally expect to lose the weight that I gained in 9 months…. and at this rate I could lose it in 2 more months.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
