Phen24 is a new brand of slimming pills which is grabbing increasing attention in the weight loss market in the new year 2017 mainly due to its unique and catchy name. The term “Phen” is highly misleading, but used by many manufacturers for covert marketing purpose.
Phen24 – A quick weight loss aid?
The name Phen reminds anybody of thermogenic fat-burner substance Phentermine which was well-known for super fast weight loss and was later banned for some dangerous side effects that it may cause.
Today the name Phen just means super fast weight loss as none of the present Phen pills have Phentermine. All diet pills that start with the name Phen are expected to aid quick weight loss as people associate the word Phen with quick slimming.
Phen24- Diet supplements that work Day and Night to help you lose weight!
But does Phen24 deliver what it guarantees?
The name Phen24 is really very interesting, read on to know whether the slimming supplements justify their name.
The Phen 24 Formula
As the name Phen24 suggests, they are pills which are said to aid slimming round the clock. They come it two types
- Phen24 Day pills
- Phen24 Night pills
Day pills are expected to work during the day in the following ways
- help you to burn more than usual calories by increasing your daytime metabolic rate
- boost your energy levels to motivate you to do more physical activities and thus burn fat
Night pills are expected to work during whole night as follows
- Reduce food cravings in the evening and thus control food intake
- Increase night time metabolic rate and aid weight loss even while sleeping!
- Help you have better sleep which is always considered important for weight management. Good sleep also controls production of Cortisol and Ghrelin hormones, the hormones that contribute weight gain by activating hunger senses.
Is Day and Night concept a real thing in weight loss process?
Definitely a big YES, daytime we burn more calories and while sleeping less calories are used.
Our days are filled with all tasks, targets, physical activities, run arounds and so on.. No wonder why we burn more calories during a day. Our metabolic rate will be at its peak when we are physically and mentally very active.
But when we rest, even metabolic rate rests. Resting or sleep time metabolic rate is always lesser than day time metabolic rate. We burn less calories while sleeping. This is the reason why doctors advice us to eat less at night. If we eat heavy meals before sleeping, all unused calories will be converted into fat and in turn we gain fat and weight.
Phen24 looks like one of a kind
Unlike other pills on the market, Phen 24 diet supplements are intended for continuous weight loss.
You do not need energy boosters while sleeping!!
Almost all diet pill manufacturers ignore the importance of a good sleep in weight management. In fact insomnia or sleeplessness is one of the common side effects of many slimming supplements.
They all have energy boosting stimulants which if you consume at night may result in sleeplessness which may also lead to the production of some hormones that trigger hunger senses resulting in more eating and weight gain. The result is, you lose sleep and gain weight!!
Phen24 seem to be different slimming pills that are intended to work day and night with your weight loss process without depriving you of quality sleep.
Does Phen24 address night time weight gain issue effectively?
In addition, as mentioned earlier, insufficient sleep triggers production of more cortisol and ghrelin hormones which may contribute to additional weight gain as they activate your hunger senses and make you eat more!
In contrast, sufficient sleep corrects metabolism disorders and motivates you to eat healthy amount of food and keeps you very active and enthusiastic throughout the day. Sleep is a key factor in weight management.
Among the popular diet supplement in the market today, it is only Phen24 that differentiates between day and night and has separate pills for day and night.
Phen24 Night pills are said to promote relaxation and restful sleep which will automatically make our body healthier and ready for weight loss. Therefore Phen24 pills appear to have addressed the issue of weight gain due to sleeping disorders in a proper way.

Day Pills Ingredients:
These pills have 8 ingredients namely Caffeine, Guarana Extract, Cayenne Powder, Phenylalanine, Iodine, Manganese, Zinc Citrate and Copper Sulphate as per the official website.
- Caffeine is a well-known stimulant and metabolism booster as well as appetite suppressant. It is a common but effective ingredient used in many of the slimming supplements the market. [Ref]
- Guarana extract is another popular ingredient with high concentrated caffeine which is mostly used in energy supplements. It works the same way as caffeine works as it has natural caffeine.[Ref]

They are said to reduce acidity, improve blood circulation, lower cholesterol, cure diarrhea and are being tested as various types of pain relievers with highly encouraging results. It is also a proven appetite suppressor and metabolism booster used in many weigh loss supplements. [Ref1] [Ref2]
- Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that is said to suppress appetite by stimulating the release of cholecystokinin, an intestinal hormone. This hormone sends a signal of being full to our brain and thus makes us feel satiated even when we are not full. This can help us in controlling food intake. [Ref]

Can Phen24 Day pills effectively help you lose weight?
The main three ingredients in Phen24 namely Caffeine, Guarana Extract and Cayenne Powder can really boost metabolism and even suppress appetite when used in sufficient amount. These are proven to aid slimming.
The other ingredients are not proven to aid or support weight loss to a large extent. As most of us consume Iodized salt in our food, extra intake of Iodine does not seem necessary.

Have these pills made weight loss process so simple and easy to achieve?

The only positive thing is they have some proven ingredients with minimum side effects. You can always check other reviews and read some of our useful weight management articles.
People looking for weight loss aids normally want to lose some extra pounds quickly. Many determined people achieve their short term weight loss goals. But most of the over-weighing people remain so over a long period of time as they cannot be on slimming pills or such quick fixes all the time. It is the human tendency to lose some weight quickly with some quick weight loss aids and then gain it back after sometime usually within a year.
