Xentrafen is a diet capsule developed by NexGen Biolabs.
According to the bottle, users can expect to experience “maximum strength weight loss and appetite suppression”, but customer reviews suggest they are just as likely to experience side effects.
This is not surprising because Xentrafen is a stimulant-powered diet pill that is unlikely to be suitable for the average person who needs to lose weight, but could be a viable option for bodybuilders and other athletes who have built up a tolerance due to years of stimulant use.
- Provides powerful appetite suppression
- Incredible fat burning

How the Claims of Xentrafen Hold Up
A lot of the claims NexGen make for this product don’t hold water. It would be nice if the formulation were capable of improving thyroid function because the thyroid produces hormones the body needs to control the metabolism.
None of the ingredients in the formulation can do this though. Diet pills that provide this feature invariably contain ingredients that provide iodine. Xentrafen does not have any.
In fact all of the ingredients are stimulants. This means the promised energy boost should put in an appearance. Stimulants are also good for improving mental focus and can boost the metabolism.
A faster metabolism burns calories more quickly and helps the body get to the stage where it needs to begin burning fat. Targeting fat in stubborn areas is an appealing idea, but it would be incredibly hard to do.
Each capsule provides 337mg of a proprietary blend.
The Xentrafen proprietary blend contains unspecified amounts of:
- 1,3,7 Trimethylxanthine
All six ingredients are stimulants. A lot of diet pills contain stimulants. The most popular one is caffeine and science shows it has the ability to boost the metabolism and encourage fat burning. However, it’s not good practice to combine several stimulants in the way NexGen have done here.
Not surprisingly, Xentrafen contains caffeine, but its listed as 1,3,7 Trimethylxanthine. Synephrine is a stimulant obtained from a citrus fruit (citrus aurantium), schizandrol is a Chinese herb, yohimbine comes from the bark of an African tree, and NN-Dimethyltyramine and 5-Hydroxytryptophan are also plant extracts.
5-Hydroxytryptophan is alleged to be an appetite suppressant as well as a stimulant, but further study is required. Yohimbine is often added to bodybuilding supplements because it’s believed to accelerate fat burning while also protecting against loss of muscle mass.
Xentrafen Customer Testimonials
A few average customer reviews read:
Xentrafen Potential Side Effects
Xentrafen contains a number of stimulants, so it will not be suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding a child. Anyone else who is thinking about using this product should play it safe and discuss the matter with a doctor prior to commencing supplementation.
Xentrafen Pricing and Availability
Xentrafen is no longer available via the manufacturer’s website. Walmart appears to be the only company still marketing the product and it’s possible to buy a 60-capsule bottle for $23.99.
NexGen fails to provide a money back guarantee.
The Final Judgment
Is Xentrafen capable of supporting weight loss? The answer is probably yes, but the way the product works presents cause for concern.
Most people can handle small doses of caffeine and other stimulants, if they couldn’t energy drinks would never have become so popular.
Xentrafen contains a 375mg cocktail of stimulants, though, and that’s something very different. Pills of this nature invariably carry an increased risk of side effects and customer reviews show Xentrafen is no exception.
Products of this nature are not worth considering unless you are a hardened stimulant user and, even then, it’s still a wise precaution to seek medical advice prior to taking a supplement like this for the first time.
