Atrafen is an over the counter weight loss supplement that is marketed as being a balanced, high quality formulation. The manufacturer behind this product doesn’t pretend to be a miracle solution to having fat magically leave the body without any effort. Instead, it claims to have focused on quality ingredients and promises it can keep.
This product is meant to help dieters cope with the challenges that can come with healthy dieting. It doesn’t promote extremely rapid weight loss that will only cause the metabolism and hormones to suffer, leading weight to rebound. Instead, it helps to ensure that results will be faster than what dieters would be able to achieve on their own, but to a manageable and maintainable level.
The official website for this product states that Atrafen works by boosting the metabolism via thermogenesis. It explains that the thermogenesis process – where the body produces more heat and requires stored fat or food from calories to provide the fuel for that heat – will greatly increase the rate at which the body uses its calories. It also states that this increased calorie burn will continue for a considerable length of time, even if a person has been idle for several hours.
Therefore, because of this lengthy increase in calorie burning, a dieter is supposed to be able to achieve “significant fat burning over time” without the user having felt any different.
The website also says that the product boosts satiety from food while suppressing the appetite. That helps to prevent a user from eating more in order to replace the additional calories that it says will have been burned through the thermogenesis. It claims that this will occur without having to experience crashing, which is commonplace in many diet pills. It claims that using this pill can help a dieter to avoid crashing and the impact that has on blood sugar and hormones.
Unfortunately, at the time of the writing of this review, if the official website supported any of these claims with cited scientific and/or medical studies, they could not be located.
While the official site did offer an image of the product package where the ingredients were listed. This image was very small with poor resolution. It appears as though the blurry text suggested that the formula was made of the following ingredients: raspberry ketones, African mango extract, irvingia gabonensis, acai fruit, green tea extract, resveratrol, caffeine anhydrous, apple cider vinegar, kelp and grapefruit.
