PHENBLUE – Research-Supported Fat Interaction Formula*
PHENBLUE® is the top choice for people who not only want to lose body fat, but want to improve their overall health and wellness. With its formulation of 100% Clinically-Researched ingredients, PHENBLUE strives to make dieting more effective and easier for EVERYONE.*
The most important feature of the PHENBLUE formula is the combination sword and shield effect. It contains the patented NeOpuntia®, a compound that has been shown in clinical studies to reduce fat absorption from consumed foods. The other ingredients support a dieter’s efforts to burn existing fat away by boosting energy levels and focus. This makes PHENBLUE unique among diet products of its class. Even prescription diet drugs for which it has become a common alternative do not combine these two capabilities in one medication. With research supporting these ingredients, PHENBLUE can make a very useful addition to your weight management arsenal.*
PHENBLUE is a dietary supplement that can be legally purchased online without a doctor’s prescription. It is manufactured in the United States, within a facility that is in full compliance with the FDA Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP) regulations. PHENBLUE does not contain dangerous stimulants like ephedra or synephrine, nor does it contain any prescription drugs.*
The Science Behind the PHENBLUE Formula
NeOpuntia® (Prickly Pear)
NeOpuntia®, which is one of the best-known fat binders, is a form of opuntia ficus-indica that has been greatly studied for its impact on weight loss and related conditions. As a result of the findings of this research this ingredient was selected as the top substance for the formula.
In one major study* the results indicated that when patients with metabolic syndrome were using NeOpuntia, they were able to improve their blood lipid parameters that were associated with cardiovascular risks.
A second study of randomized clinical trials showed that supplementation of opuntia ficus-indica can lead to notable reductions in body fat percentages, as well as total cholesterol and blood pressure. While it did indicate that further research was still required at that point in time, there was definite promise shown in the link between using this ingredient and lowering several health risks, including a decrease in the percentage of body fat on the user.
A third study showed that when this ingredient was used, there was an increase in the amount of fat that was excreted. The participants in the study were healthy adults, and what this research indicated was that less fat from food was being absorbed by the body and more was being sent out in the body waste when opuntia ficus-indica was supplemented.

Among the ingredients in the PHENBLUE formulation that have been selected in order to make it a powerful and yet safe diet supplement, is caffeine anhydrous (1,3,7 trimethylxanthine). This ingredient is widely used in weight management products due to its scientifically studied ability to achieve an effective fat burning reaction in the body, and because it can work as an appetite suppressant, as well. It has also been proven to boost energy levels and alertness. That research can be found in several large and highly reputed studies published in peer reviewed medical journals.
As a part of the complete PHENBLUE formula, caffeine anhydrous can become a highly effective factor in any successful diet program. In order to achieve the best results from its use, it should be combined with a healthy, reduced calorie diet strategy, as well as daily exercise that is appropriate to the dieter’s fitness level. When all of these elements are combined, this ingredient can help to generate faster and easier results on multiple levels.
The reason that caffeine anhydrous was specifically chosen for this product is that scientific study* has shown that it is not only safe to be used every day, but that it can also be linked with weight loss that is more rapid and easy than diet and exercise on their own. Moreover, it has also been shown to lower the risk of developing a condition known as metabolic syndrome.

Organic Green Tea (Matcha) Leaf Powder
Organic Matcha Green Tea Leaf powder is one of the reasons that PHENBLUE can say that it contains powerful, clinically proven fat blockers and fat burners. This substance has been studied over decades and has been found to contain a broad spectrum of different health and weight management promoting benefits.
As a fat burner, it can be used as a part of a calorie reduced diet that includes regular exercise (especially cardiovascular exercise) in order to enhance the body’s ability to burn through calories and fats every day.
In one research study*, the team determined that when the ingredient was given to the participants, there was a measurable increase in the amount of energy expended throughout a 24 hour period. At the same time, they also observed that there was a significant reduction in the 24 hour respiratory quotient. Equally, the participants who took this substance were also found to have a higher norepinephrine (adrenaline) level than those who took a placebo.
As promising as that study was, it wasn’t alone in demonstrating the potential benefits of this ingredient. In other research**, supplements were given to participants who then experienced fat blocking (lipase inhibition) within the pancreatic and gastric systems. At the same time, they also experienced heightened thermogenesis. What this meant was that while there was a reduction of the absorption of fats from food by the body, they were equally burning body fats at a greater rate as the body temperature was rising and they were being used as fuel for that extra heat.

Theobromine is the last of the ingredients that makes up the PHENBLUE formula. It is now well recognized for the benefits that it produces not only on its own, but also when combined with some of the other ingredients that make up the formula for this product. Among the benefits that it provides to dieters includes energy enhancement that is maintained for a longer period of time than other stimulants, helping to avoid energy spikes and crashes. That said, it is also known to be helpful as an appetite suppressant.
Energy boosting and appetite suppression are both very helpful benefits for people who are attempting to lose weight, as it can help them to remain driven throughout even the busiest days, so that workouts can be completed at high performance levels, but still it also ensures that the user will be less likely to overeat because hunger levels won’t stand in his or her way.
In one study* on the effects of Theobromine, it was revealed that when the use of this ingredient was compared to that of a placebo, as well as when it was combined with the use of caffeine. This study involved two separate, consecutive experiments that involved daily use of the ingredients. What it determined was that using this ingredient offered a measurable difference that could be quite beneficial to dieters.
