Like alot of Americans, I want to lose weight. And I don’t want to exercise or eat healthy, I just want to take a magic pill that just sheds the weight away. Of course we all know that this is not possible, but it never hurts to dream right? Well, when I came across Zantrex 3 in Walgreen’s, and they actually say you can lose weight without doing anything! You probably thinking their is a catch, but there isn’t, they actually have done a clinical study on their product to show its effectiveness at burning fat without exercise or diet.
What is Zantrex 3 Blue Bottle?
Marketed as a rapid weight loss formula, Zantrex 3 promises to give you extreme energy and help with weight loss. According to a study published on their official site and on the label, Zantrex 3 users saw an average weight loss of 546% more than “Americas #1 selling ephedra based pill”. They don’t actually state what that pill is and when we tried to get more information on this clinical study on their website, their was no information listed.

While Zantrex 3 does a good job of selling and marketing their product, it hasn’t come without a price. Doctors have weighed in on the potential dangers and side effects from taking a supplement such as Zantrex 3, which is not subject to FDA scrutiny (similar to all other OTC supplements). They caution that taking a product like this may have hidden consequences which could be detrimental to your health, even frowning on reality TV star “Snooki’s” endorsement of it. But of course they’re going to say that, they’re doctors for crying out loud!
So the bottom line is you want to know whether or not it works. We took a look through several other weight loss review sites, and poured through discussion and forums to see the results other users were getting before we decided to take our shot at it.
The majority of users that I came across were getting some small side effects from Zantrex 3, most notably headache, trouble sleeping, and flushed skin. My guess as to what’s causing these side effects would be because it contains the stimulants caffeine and yerba mate.
Ingredients in Zantrex 3
Zantrex 3 Blue bottle works through a combination of proprietary ingredients, split up into 2 categories; weight loss and energy. The ingredients you should be concerned with for weight loss include:
- Yerba Mate
- and Damiana
and the ingredients listed for energy are:
- Trimethylxanthine (fancy word for caffeine)
- Guarana Extract
Their are about 24 other ingredients listed in Zantrex 3, but these are the primary ones used. The full ingredient list includes: Green Tea Extract, Kola, Schizonepeta, Black Pepper Extract, Rhodiola Crenulata, Asian Ginseng , Maca Root, Cacao Seed, and Black Tea Extract. Their are some others listed, but they are mainly fillers and additives for coloring and product freshness.
My Results From Taking Zantrex 3
I’m not really a big guy to begin with, but I could definitely stand to lose about 15 pounds. I’m already active, but my diet sucks, so I needed to stay off of the pizza and beer for a few days to not skew the results. The dosage instructions on the Zantrex 3 blue bottle say to take 2 capsules, but I always like to start off with just one or 1/2 the dose to see how my body responds.
It’s a good thing I did that because after about an hour I started to feel the same side effects that were mentioned from the other users. I think for me though, the side effects started to wear off kind of quickly, because i didn’t feel it for more than an hour or so. I did feel a tremendous sense of energy, almost as though I could run a 5 k with no problem at all.
After taking the Zantrex 3 blue bottle for about a week, I noticed that I dropped about 5 pounds, and the side effects were non-existent. Over time, I think that the effectiveness starts to wear off, but it definitely works to give you a big kick in the butt to get you motivated to work out.
Zantrex 3 is cheap enough to try out, without worrying about breaking the bank. I got it for just $20 at Walgreen’s, and when compared to some of the other ephedra based fat burners I have tried, I think it works better than most. It seems like most of the people that did not get any good results from taking it did not combine it with any diet and exercise, which is obviously crucial to anyone who is looking to lose weight over the long term, and keep it off.
By the way, the makers of Zantrex 3 also came out with a different formula which is supposed to be more potent than the original blue bottle, check out our review of that one here.

Been using for two weeks definitely feeling boost in energy. Lost five pounds happy with results.
Zantrex 3 blue bottle.
It works!!! i took zantrex 3,the blue bottle, for two months, and in my first month I lost 25 pounds!! i did start hitting the gym,and watched my junk food intake, but other than that,nothing different. Took the red bottle, and did not like the way it made me feel! the blue bottle works, and I didn\’t have any crazy side effects,a nd I lost the weight without really even knowing I was!! perfect for this busy mama of 3! i love it!!
It works! I lost 10 pounds in about 2 months without dieting or excercise. Don’t give up after finishing just one bottle though, after the second bottle (60 capsules) the pounds started coming off.
I started zantrex 3 fat burner (red bottle) this morning, 10/15 at about 9:00am. I took my last I 2 for the day at 4:00. My appetite was low today, I was NOT hungry today:) So it allowed me to think more about what I should eat versus what I would usually want or crave. I had a bowl of special k this morning and a spinach, chicken salad with red wine vin and ex virgin olive oil for supper, I wasn’t hungry at all around lunch so I couldn’t bring myself to eat. I started my diet last Tuesday and I weighed 204lbs, I weighed yesterday and was 199lbs, then I started Zantrex this morning, did about a mile of walking and weighed myself at 8:30 pm and I now weigh 195lbs. The answer is YES I did lose 4lbs today. I have lots of energy and my mood was a lot better. I was able to clean my house, tend to my 6 month old and go shopping with my grandmother today for about 4 hrs without tiring and without crashing tonight. I know it sounds to good to be true but I didn’t sit on my but and do nothing, like I said, I stuck to my diet and did a bit of exercise. Point being this product definitely is working for me. I would however recommend that if you have a spastick heart or anything like that, then only take one when you would normally take 2. I hope this was helpful for someone, and at the end of this when I reach my goal of 145lbs, I will post before and after pics:) Good luck
ENTRY 1. Oct 4, 2013 (FIRST TIMER)
I’ve read plenty of reviews, on ZANTREX-3–blue bottle, and I must say that the feeling is like no other, if my words get a little jibberish that’s because I just took the 2pill dosage recommended. so it’s been about 30mins, however, I felt the sensations 10mins after I took it, I felt the back of my head get heavy, as if I had some HAPPY DRUG at the doctor’s office, BUTTTTT, without the GIGGLES, lol, also I felt a “Hey um not hungry feeling, in my belly” — mind you I woke up STARVING this morning, I am going to have breakfast after this message to you guys, Instead of me having the 2 sausage sandwiches from my favorite fast-food joint, I figure I’ll have a mini bagel – the size of my palm & a 32oz cup of homemade fruit water that I prepared last night, consisting of 5 watermelon chucks, 2 slices of cantaloupe, & 2 mint leaves, ah think–I’ll throw a boil egg in there, lol. (I’m 5″7 / 225lbs / 44yrs young blk woman) I purchased my blue bottles this morning —it was a double pak–by1get1free @$19.88 Walmart SUPERCENTER.
oh yeah here’s another thing that I’m doing–I’m a big TV person, so I will be standing in front of it, & excervise 1hr a day—I figure I gotta start somewhere, what the heck it beats me just lay’n down all day & eating for no reason, lol. (*I don’t have nor did I set a certain goal– I’m gonna just wing it, & see what happens.) I HOPE THIS HELPS, I’LL SEE YOU GUYS WITH ANOTHER blue bottle REVIEW IN TWO WEEKS.
DISCLAIMER: I’M NOT AN EXPERT, I SUGGEST THIS REGIMENT FOR ME ONLY, TRY IT AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Hi, I’ve been taking the red bottle for about a month. At first it gave me really bad side effects for a week and now it’s fine. I haven’t seen any results but it does give me energy, which I love. Today I purchased the blue bottle and I won’t be using the red one anymore since everyone says blue works better. How long should I wait to switch over to blue? Will it be ok if I start using it tomorrow? I took one red one early this morning.
Rob Miller: Hey Tim,
It shouldn’t be a problem to switch the next day, but I would advise you to err on the side of safety, and wait 2 or 3 days before taking the Blue.
I started 4 days ago at 220 today I’m 209 ! Idk how its possible lol but I love the results ….btw idk if its just me but it made me poop and urine alottttt.. I guess thats where the weight loss came from lol !!!!
well I have took zantrex 3 I seen result fast yes it give you extreme energy it also makes my heart beat fast give me headache but I lost my weight ……I got off my birth control shot now I gain 20 pound and its more in the belly I been trying them green tea that dr oz had on his show and boy I tell u that shit does not work im going to get me a bottle tomorrow the blue bottle works
So about 2 days ago I started taking the blue bottle I currently and 5’4 and weigh about 170 I used to weigh 135 and would love to get back there. I gained the freshman 15 and then some. I did a lot of research on this am here are some things I have learned. The red bottles have ephedrine in it and the blue don’t. The FDA doesn’t approve weight loss pills with that in there. So if your taking the red ones just be careful. Also the red ones are for people who athletes or work out a lot so if you are taking the red and just sit down on the couch or at a desk all day the red ones arnt for you. I am an athlete but I don’t want to put the ephedrine in my body so I have taken the blue ones. I haven’t really had any side effects and here’s why. I drink a lot of water when I take it and I make sure I dont immediately sit on my butt after I go for a little walk or go to the gym. These pills are supposed to give you energy to do stuff and move around, so move a little. The people that see the best results are the ones who move around even a walk or something small. The pills have made me more hungry but that is because it increases metabolism. So to curve that I drink more water and i have noticed i have been eating smaller portions because i get fuller feelings sooner. In 2 days I have lost 2 pounds. And so my recommendations are
1. Don’t take the red unless you are active (I am an athlete and I don’t even take them)
2. If you take them drink plenty of water (makes sure you won’t feel dizzy)
3. Move! (Right after you take the pills don’t just sit down move around a little it’ll keep you from feeling nauseous)
4. The burning feeling will subside, make sure you drink plenty if fluids!)
5. Avoid sugary things! Candy! Any thing that is supposed to help you lose weight doesn’t work well with sugar and fats.
6. Always consult a doctor especially if you are taking other medicines or on other weight lose pills (that’s dangerous!)
Ill keep you updated on my progress good luck all!
I just started the blue bottle yesterday today is my second day and I feel great. I have completely changed my eating habits so sugars, junk food, extra calories. I did feel the energy yesterday which was great and I also did cardio for about an hour. I have never felt this good. I will keep you posted!
