The ingredients found in this product are the following: raspberry ketone, African mango extract, acai fruit, green tea extract, resveratrol, caffeine anhydrous, apple cider vinegar powder, kelp and grapefruit powder.
Raspberry ketone’s abilities to aid in weight loss are still unclear as far as scientific research goes, but I know from previous experience that they do boost energy significantly. Acai fruit, on the other hand, has proven to help with weight loss, but the effects have been found to be very mild. The same goes for resveratrol. Green tea extract and green coffee bean extract both have good track records when it comes to weight loss as well, although I find them to be more of a stimulant than an appetite suppressant.
Overall, the ingredient list is very comprehensive compared to most others on the market, although the dosage of the ingredients is generally lower than what was used in studies. Still, the product has some impressive research behind it and can cause fat loss through a variety of mechanisms.
When using this product myself over the course of one month, I did notice some pretty significant effects. The most prominent was the energy boost. I find that if I take this supplement any later than 3 or 4pm I have trouble sleeping at night. And although they claim it doesn't cause jitters, I found that I was a little jumpy during the first week or two. As far as curbing appetite, this product delivers here as well. I found the optimal dosing schedule to be one capsule before breakfast and one before lunch. When taking it this way, I typically have a high protein breakfast around 8am and by lunch time I'm still not hungry.
Atrafen is higher priced than some other options out there, coming in at a little over $1/day when taken twice daily. That said, I can tell that the quality of ingredients is high, and they are even registered with the FDA... something that is extremely rare in this industry. I'll gladly pay extra to know I'm taking a quality product. And best of all, it works. If not, you're also offered a money back guarantee. While this supplement is not a "pure" appetite suppressant and contains several stimulant fat burning ingredients as well, I can safely recommend this product as my #1 choice among appetite suppressants.
