Phentaslim is a weight management supplement that promises to make the user “look slimmer and feel more confident”.
It is produced by Optimum Nutra and the name “Phentaslim” suggests they may be hoping to attract customers who are searching for an easy-to-get-hold-of alternative to the prescription-only weight loss drug Phentermine.
However, the company makes no comparisons between their product and the drug, and do not mention Phentermine in their marketing material. The sales page’s main focus is on the benefits it can provide.
Advertised Benefits Include:
- Reduces body fat
- Suppresses hunger cravings
- Supports mental performance
- Helps you feel more energised
- 100% Natural & Safe
Weight loss Method
Unlike Phentermine, which provides appetite suppression only (albeit very powerful appetite suppression), Phentaslim appears to have been designed to take a twofold approach to weight loss by combining appetite suppression with improved fat burning capabilities.
So in theory the product should help the user to lower their calorie intake, by cutting down on food, while also increasing their calorie burning capabilities to such an extent the body will be forced to begin burning its fat. The formulation has also been designed to provide extra energy to help ensure the dieting process does not result in lethargy and loss of zest for life.
Ingredients Used & Probable Benefits
Two capsules provide:
- Green Tea (375mg): Green tea assists weight loss by speeding up the metabolism and triggering thermogenic fat burning. It is a proven weight loss provider and the dose here should be sufficient to provide some good results.
- Caffeine (270mg): A popular stimulant that can provide a quick energy boost and also acts as an appetite suppressant and metabolism booster. Its prowess in these areas has helped it to become a very popular ingredient in energy drinks and weight loss supplements alike.
- L-Theanine (225mg): An amino acid that appears to have the ability to increase alertness. L-Theanine can also be useful for helping to manage stress levels.
- L-Carnitine (200 mg): An amino acid that is often used as a fat burning trigger mechanism. It is also believed to speed-up recovery after exercise.
- L-Tyrosine (200mg): An amino acid that is sometimes used in nootropic formulations to provide improved mental focus. L-Tyrosine is also becoming an increasingly popular appetite suppressant.
- Panax Ginseng Root (120mg): A potent Chinese herb that supports good health and can be used to treat many ailments. Optimum Nutra has included it here to support the immune system and boost mental alertness.
- Guarana seed (100mg): A fruit-based caffeine provider that can be particularly effective for supplying ongoing energy.
- Magnesium (80mg): A mineral that supports healthy bones and teeth and is important for ensuring normal muscle function.
- Cayenne Pepper (50mg): A hot property in more ways than one, this chili extract can speed up the metabolism and cause calories to be burned at 12 times the normal speed.
- Zinc (15 mg): Often used in testosterone boosting formulations, zinc is also useful for ensuring energy levels do not run low—especially during periods of exercise.
- Black Pepper Extract (6mg): Contains an alkaloid that can help the body to absorb other ingredients more efficiently.
The formulation also contains several B vitamins. Together and individually they provide a number of different benefits and all share the ability to support efficient metabolic function.

Potential users who have existing health issues, or are taking medication, will need to seek medical advice prior to commencing supplementation.
