Fedramine has an extensive website, well organized and full of information. They also offer a 30 day money back guarantee that only requires you to contact the company within the 30 day period and get an RMA number for returns. It also contains a few popular fat burning ingredients such as citrus aurantium, guarana extract, caffeine, and green tea.
If you ordered just one bottle of fedramine, a return will probably work out fine. But with orders of 2 bottles or more, both bottles must be returned unopened and in resellable condition. In other words, you don’t actually get to try the product at all with any order of more than one bottle. While the ingredients themselves are descent, the amounts are not up to par. It seems the company uses just enough of each ingredient to list it on the bottle, but not nearly enough to make a difference. For example, the minimum dosage of manganese per day to avoid deficiencies is 2.5-5.0mg.
A microgram is a much smaller unit of measurement, and so 400mcg doesn’t even come close to preventing deficiency. To actually contribute to weight loss or anything else, the body needs considerably higher doses of different ingredients. With a 316mg proprietary blend and 8 different ingredients, that equals out to an average of 39.5mg of each ingredient, if those ingredients are in equal quantity and the product uses no fillers. However with a proprietary blend of popular but run of the mill ingredients, there is an extremely high likelihood that most of the mix is taken up by fillers anyway.
Overall Impression of Fedramine:
Fedramine uses some popular ingredients. But they are run of the mill ingredients, and they don’t use enough of any of the ingredients to be effective. Your risk of side effects associated with caffeine goes substantially down. But your potential weight loss results also go substantially down. If this were a $5 supplement, I would say no harm, no foul. But at $69, it is a monumental waste of money.
