About Zantrex Black

When compared to the Red and Blue formulations, Zantrex Black claims to be a new, accelerated, rapid-release formula that provides quick, “high-velocity” weight loss results. On top of this, Zantrex Black is claimed to be formulated for maximum potency and extreme energy.

Because it’s summertime, it’s likely that you want to gain the perfect, swimsuit-ready body you’ve always wanted. After all, no one can blame you for wanting to look your best. But to find out whether or not Zantrex Black is the best way to accomplish this, we took a hard look at the supplement’s claims, and what you can realistically expect from taking it.

Important Details About Zantrex Black

At its most basic, Zantrex Black contains a proprietary formula of ingredients that are claimed to help you burn fat and lose weight, increase your energy, and decrease your appetite. However, unlike other Zantrex formulas, the new Black version is claimed to rapidly release into your system in order to provide you with the fastest effects possible.

With this in mind, Zantrex Black’s proprietary ingredients include the following:

  • Protein 0.5g
  • Niacin 30mg
  • Zantrex-3 Proprietary Blend 1,160mg
    Yerba Mate (leaf) Extract, Guarana (seed) Extract, Trimethylxanthine, Damiana (Turnera diffusa var. aphrodisiaca) (leaf) Extract, Green Tea (leaf) Extract, Kola (seed) Extract, Schizonepeta (flower) Extract, Black Pepper (fruit) Extract, Rhodiola crenulata (root) Extract, Asian Ginseng (root) Extract, Maca (root) Extract, Cacao (seed) Extract, Black Tea (leaf) Extract

According to the Zantrex Black product page, you should take 2 liquid-filled softgels 15 minutes prior to each meal, along with a full glass of water. If necessary, you can take 1-2 additional softgels at a time throughout the remainder of the day to experience a “significant energy boost,” although the company recommends that you don’t exceed 6 softgels during a 24-hour period.

Important note: Under the details section of the Zantrex Black webpage, it also claims that you should not take more than 4 capsules per day. While this may be a typo, this is something you’ll definitely want to confirm in advance.

Zantrex Black Pricing & Refund Policy

Each bottle of Zantrex Black contains 84 softgels and is priced at $39.99 plus $6.95 shipping and handling.

Zantrex Black comes with a 30-day return policy, less shipping and handling charges. In order to initiate the process, you’ll need to contact customer service at 800-898-5153.

Keep in mind that Zantrex Black is also available through a variety of third party retailers such as GNC, Amazon.com, CVS, and many more.

What’s the Bottom Line About Zantrex Black?

As with any other nutritional supplement, weight loss or otherwise, if you’re expecting “magical” results with Zantrex Black, you’ll likely be disappointed. However, can this supplement help to boost your overall weight loss goals? Maybe, but keep the following in mind before placing your order:

Price

With 84 pills per bottle and a manufacturer’s price of $39.99, this works out to about 14 days before you’ll need to refresh. While this is certainly less expensive than some of the other weight loss supplements we’ve reviewed, this still means you’ll be paying about $80 per month, assuming you take 2 softgels before each meal (6 per day).

Ingredients & Effectiveness

Overall, there is very little evidence showing any of the ingredients contained in Zantrex Black can actually burn fat, and what evidence does exist is inconclusive. Because of this, you shouldn’t expect to take Zantrex Black and just watch your body begin shedding fat.

However, because this supplement contains a fair amount of stimulants, these can help curb your appetite and reduce your calorie intake, thereby potentially helping you to lose weight.

Customer Reviews & Negative Side Effects

Zantrex Black appears to have a mixed online reputation, with some of the most common compliments referencing increased energy and reduced appetite. However, most complaints referenced negative side effects related to the high level of stimulants, including stomach ache, headache, dizziness, and skin flushing.

With this said, due to the high amount of stimulants contained in Zantrex Black, if you’re especially sensitive to these types of ingredients, you may want to avoid the supplement altogether. Even if you’re not sensitive, you will probably want to avoid taking it close to bedtime in order to get a good night’s sleep.

Keep Your Expectations Realistic

As we’ve mentioned in most of our weight loss supplement reviews, the only proven method of losing weight and keeping it off is through regular exercise and a healthy diet. While supplements like Zantrex Black may help give you an extra boost, whether through appetite suppression or providing extra energy during your workouts, they are only intended to enhance the benefits of exercise and diet, not to replace them.

Bottom Line: As long as you only expect Zantrex Black to help support your exercise and healthy diet habits, this supplement may help provide the extra boost you need. However, if you’re on a tight budget or are sensitive to stimulants, you may want to look elsewhere.

    Will never take it again!

    I would not recommend this to anybody. The headache is not worth it, OMG, I just took some Tylenol and it eased away within 20 minutes. Don't take this unless you want a BAD headache. I felt shaky, it didn't give me any energy, it decreased my hunger, but heck, that probably gave me a bad headache too. I don't think anything on the market is safe. The hospital said that weight loss pills don't work, they just give you bad side effects, and to me, if you gotta deal with crap like that, it ain't worth it.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Allergic reaction

    I had a horrible allergic reaction three times, and the last two were really bad. I finally narrowed it down to it being caused by the Zantrex Black. Heart palpitations, extreme nervousness, turned beat red with a rash. My head felt like it was on fire. Thank goodness I had Benadryl on hand for two bad episodes; I thought I was going to die. I won't be ever taking this product again.

    I had to rate, so I gave it one star only because that was the lowest I could rate it at.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I started Zantrex Black yesterday. I felt perfectly fine all evening besides not really being able to sleep and was extremely dehydrated even after drinking five bottles of water, which from what I have been reading seems to be normal.

    I woke up this morning and took two pills on an empty stomach. Twenty minutes later I felt really hot and flushed like I was going to pass out, then I was extremely nauseous with bad cramping pains and my cheeks and nose are beet red. After it subsided, I felt fine for about three more hours, but then to my surprise, it happened all over again.

    I'm pretty sure it is the Niacin in it that is making people feel this way. It is meant to flush out your system quickly and make you sweat out toxins. As far as weight loss goes, I do feel lighter, but I think it may be from the extra water intake and cutting out high calorie caffeinated drinks. I only recommend this product to individuals who actually eat three times a day, otherwise, you will be dealing with some nasty side effects.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Amazing, true story.

    I tried Hydroxycut and cleanses and slim this and slim that. I started weighing 154 lbs and am a 5ft 5in woman, so curvy to start. In two weeks with NO diet and light exercise, I have lost 10 lbs. So I am now 144 and counting. I am taking six a day. No negative side effects.

    I just started taking Zantrex Black today. I took it at 4:50, and it's now 7:40 and I'm not sure if my stomach is supposed to feel like this. I feel hungry but sick at the same time. I feel nauseous and tired. I had a burst of energy to where my sister could barely understand me when I talked. I was just wandering if anyone else had these symptoms and if it went away after a few uses? I want to lose weight but being healthy and exercise alone doesn't work for me. I need an extra boost.

    I started taking Zantrex Black at the beginning of January. My weight loss goal is 40-45 pounds. I did a lot of research on diet and weight loss pills. I think it’s all a scam, to be honest.

    Anyway, I took two capsules before lunch on a Wednesday, and it did give me a boost of energy and curved my appetite. I don’t believe you need diet pills or supplements to lose weight. I believe that if you stop eating fast food and junk food like sweets, candy, fried foods, and “crap food” as my husband calls it, and add an exercise program, you will lose the weight.

    I didn’t have any negative results other than just one. The capsules gave me so much energy that I couldn’t sleep. I’ve been awake for over 24 hours, and I’m still not tired. This is nuts. I’ve read reviews where people have had hot flashes, rapid heart racing, even where in some instances they had to be rushed to the hospital. Take it at your own risk!

    Diet pills alone aren't a solution, but...

    I've never taken just this alone. I can't get to the gym, and eating right at the moment is nearly impossible. I bought a new house, camping there, living in two places 75 minutes apart, got two children that only want fast food, so I knew I was in trouble.

    I've been taking this pill 15 minutes prior, two carb blocker pills (if eating lots of starch or sugar, which I try to avoid at all cost), and two green tea pills to help speed metabolism. Pizza, Chinese, Taco Bell, a few healthy meals in between, and I have lost 5 pounds in past month. Just imagine if I ate right. I follow South Beach, borderline Atkins at times. So the fast food is so opposite and I would have gained 5-10 pounds in that month if I didn't religiously take pills.

    Again, I take this as a combo with others. And this does cut my appetite, which is a blessing.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

      I tried these pills last year when I needed to drop ten pounds. I aim for 10k steps a day and try to stay around 1200 calories. So I'm dieting. Recently, I had a lot of sodium intake. I'm 144lbs and I need to get back down to 134lbs.

      I'm sure the pills will work side-by-side with my fit bit routine. I'm so excited to see the results again. I just need to stay away from my chips. I recommend following the directions, dieting and walking it out.

    Best I ever used.

    I started taking these pills but with a system that works and the right type of diet and it has helped me lose 15 pounds in three weeks. I would recommend this pill but only if you are committed to your diet and exercise because it really did accelerate the weight loss and now even my wife, and other family members and friends, are jumping on board.

    Trust me, this is no ad, and I am not a spokesperson or even an athletic type of person, so I know it really works. So with that in mind, if anyone wants to know just email me and I will tell you how this pill really helped me.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Don't recommend

    • Hendersonville, TN,

    When I took the first dose, I felt fine. I am not sensitive to caffeine because I drink a lot of coffee through out the day. When I took the second dose, it felt as though my face was swelling and stinging. I looked in the mirror and my nose was swollen and face was very red. I have to take 3-5 Benadryl tablets to counter act the reaction.

    They really need to let their customers know that this is a side effect. I didn't have a racing heart, or stomach cramping or pain, but the swelling and burning and allergic reaction is something the customers need to know about.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    A nightmare

    I took two pills this morning around 8:15 am, I was on an empty stomach. About 15 minutes later, I began to feel very hot (like a hot flash but 10 times more). My face, chest, hands, and arms were very hot, and my skin so red it seemed as if it was going to explode. My face, lips, ears, tongue, arms, and hands began to itch like crazy. I felt tightness in my chest, and my heart rate was racing and with very fast palpitations. I got a terrible headache, and my blood pressure was very high. I had to go to Urgent Care to see what was wrong. I have to follow up with a cardiologist. I would never recommend this product, Zantrex Black, to anyone.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Do not take this diet pill!

    I purchased Zantrex Black because it was on sale and I wanted to try a diet pill. I took one pill and a little while later I couldn't think straight. I got so confused. My tongue felt like it was swollen and I couldn't pronounce my words. I felt like I was having a stroke. Please be aware of side effects that are not listed.

    I needed to give it a one-star rating for this review to be posted.
