Ephedra has been banned for safety reasons, so does this supplement really contain this banned ingredient and live up to the dangerous claims? We take an in depth look at Hellfire EPH 150 to find out more.
We are concerned about Hellfire 150 EPH. Despite this supplement being available from numerous sellers, there is no real information about its background. Innovative Laboratories, the so-called makers, are not listed as a US company.
In fact, the closest we got to the source was finding a distribution company who in turn only provide an email address for trade enquiries. We think that Hellfire 150 EPH is imported so may not conform to GMP (good manufacturing practice) or basic safety guidelines.
The good point about Hellfire 150 EPH is that it does not actually contain ephedra – although this point is misleading. Customers believing they are buying an ephedra supplement are going to be disappointed if this is what they are looking for.
Side effects may include irregular or rapid heart beat, stomach upset/ pains, nausea, vomiting, jitteriness, sleep problems, anxiety/ irritability, high blood pressure, racing heartbeat/ heart pounding, dizziness, headache, frequent urination, bloating, skin rash, and increased risk of kidney failure, seizure and heart attack.
This depends upon the retailer, but a typical price is one bottle of 100 capsules for $29.99.
Ephedra is not on the ingredients list. Instead, it contains a branded supplement containing a cactus fibre called Ephedran deliberately named to create a misleading impression.
That said, Hellfire 150 EPH still does not look safe. The few customer feedback comments mention side effects and with yohimbine as one of the principle ingredients, this supplement is potentially dangerous.
It is important to keep safe when buying supplements online. The diet pill industry is unregulated and some of what is on offer can be a serious threat to health. We feel that Hellfire 150 EPH may fall into this category.
It is an easy decision. We would not take this supplement ourselves or recommend it to anyone else so there is no way we would ever add this to our approved list.
Hellfire EPH 150 has the scary look! The clue is in the name. After all, your doctor or physician is never going to write out a prescription telling you to take Hellfire for two weeks!
Some diet pills come with names that sound like prescription medicines but this one is unabashedly walking on the dark side of the supplement world.
If you are looking for a diet pill to deliver energy, euphoria and extreme weight loss and you don’t care about safety and potential side effects, it looks as if Hellfire EPH 150 ticks all the boxes.
The principle ingredient is a branded blend of ingredients called Ephedran. This sounds of course like ephedra – a plant extract taken from the plant species Ephedra Sinica – known in Chinese medicine as ma Huang.
Ephedra? Ephedra contains ephedrine a chemical that works as a stimulant and appetite suppressant with a similar molecular structure (and effects) of amphetamine. Supplements containing ephedra were banned in the USA in 2004 in response to adverse effects and deaths associated with ephedra supplements.
Hellfire EPH 150 contains trademarked brand Ephedran but this part of the formula does not appear to contain any ephedrine related ingredients so thankfully it does not live up to the ephedra inspired name.
Instead, the product information reveals it only contains C. Fimbriata- a type of cactus, which has appetite-suppressing qualities. This shows up in many supplements and has performed well in clinical testing although it needs more research.
This does not mean that this supplement is safe. Hellfire also contains two other branded formulas called StimMax and ThermoCore, which are more worrying.
Begin by taking one capsule per day. For best results, take twice daily.
DO NOT take within six (6) hours of bedtime.
NEVER EXCEED more than two (2) capsules in a 24-hour period.
Do NOT take for more than 45 consecutive days without a 20-day break prior to your next protocol.
Hellfire EPH 150 comes from a company called Innovative Diet Labs. There is zero information about them save that a distribution company called BN Distribution is the sole distributor of Innovative Diet Labs products.
Sticking our neck out here we suspect that these supplements are imported from China and probably do not conform to GMP (good manufacturing practice) and basic safety controls.
The ingredients list may not correspond to the product information. Despite extensive searching for details of Innovative Diet Labs, we drew a big fat zero.
If this company really exists, it does not appear to be based in the USA. Innovative Diet Labs supplements are available online from many cut-price online supplement companies and eBay. They are not on sale from any of the major reputable companies such as GNC or anyone else you are likely to have heard of, so come with no safety guarantees.
The advertised benefits of Hellfire EPH 150 include;
There are some alarming claims,
Innovative Diet-Laboratories is known to put the HEAT on competition, and now, the metabolic masterminds behind their HARDCORE products have collaborated their efforts to create an enigmatic energy blend designed to torch your metabolic ability, combust calories, and fuel the euphoria and mental focus that make it easy to fine tune your physique.
Engages an incinerating synchrony of fat searing, focus fuelling ingredients to crank your body up to a metabolic broil.
And, is described as,
A belly melting energy blend designed to torch your metabolic ability, combust calories, and fuel your euphoria and mental focus that makes fine tuning your physique an easy feat.
This sounds painful! It could be just advertising hype or it is possible that this supplement contains additional ingredients that we do not know about or dangerously high levels of Yohimbine.
With the lack of information about manufacturer and the shadowy Innovative Diet Labs, we cannot find anyone to contact regarding the ingredients list.
If you want to lose weight and are willing to put your health on the line, Hellfire may help you lose weight. After all, if you are suffering from side effects, you will probably lose your appetite. Added energy and stimulants also help temporary weight loss.
However, we would not advise anyone to take unknown quantities of yohimbine or to take a diet pill like this, which may have additional ingredients that are not even listed.
According to the ingredients list, this supplement does not contain ephedra. Ephedra is banned and has been illegal to sell (and buy) since 2004.
However, there is no way of knowing what this diet pill really contains. We believe that it is imported and Chinese diet pills often come with added ingredients that don’t show up in the product information.
According to the product advertising, the ingredients profile is as follows. Each capsule is equal to one serving.
Ephedran Brand Extract (150mg):
Although it is hard to find customer feedback for Hellfire, a Watchdog reader has contacted us complaining of some pretty alarming side effects including vomiting, pounding heart and severe pain following taking this supplement. This fits in with the side effects of Yohimbe.
Other potential side effects may include:
There is not one health warning provided in the product information. This does not mean that Hellfire is safe. It just means that people selling this supplement do not know or care what is actually in it.
The diet pill industry is unregulated. Just because a supplement is openly on sale does not mean it is necessarily safe.
Not suitable for individuals under 18.
Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding.
Definitely avoid if you have any medical issues such as high blood pressure, heart condition, glaucoma, kidney problems.
Do not take if you are sensitive to stimulants.
See your doctor for advice, before you take this supplement.
There is not much feedback for Hellfire. It is often sold on eBay so most feedback relates to speed of the delivery and customer service rather than the product itself.
However, one retailer (I Supplements) has displayed some feedback comments. One customer called Crystal reported,
I have used many fat burners over the years but DO NOT LIKE this product. It made me very shaky, sweaty, and gave me goose bumps. I felt “out of it” and spacey with this product. Will not order again.
Another customer liked it,
This product is very good it is wonderful because doesn’t make you agitated… full of good energy through entire day up to 16 hours this product gives you wonderful mood and infinite amount of energy . Will recommend to any of you out there to try this out. Do not take more than one.
A customer who had just bought it, believed she was buying an ephedra diet pill, so had been misled by the advertising,
Am waiting to get my order. I had great success with ephedra based diet supplements about 12 years ago. The weight just seemed to melt off. It worked better than prescription diet pills I’d taken years earlier because you don’t build up a tolerance with ephedra.
There are no guarantees with this supplement.
You can only buy Hellfire online. It is available from a variety of sellers on eBay and also on sale from some of the smaller online supplement companies that specialise in ‘strong’ ephedra style products.
If you are in the USA, you can find Hellfire on sale from I Supplements.com – one of the better looking retailers in this category. One bottle of 100 capsules cost $29.99.
With this company, you can make savings on larger orders. Two bottles costs $58.99, Three bottles costs $87.99.
You can also buy Hellfire via eBay. Prices range from around $25.99 to $40.00. In the UK, you can find Hellfire for around £35.00 for 100 capsules.
