Redotex review (update may 2018) 17 things you need to know electricity worksheets grade 6

##

Redotex claims to contain the basic ingredients the body needs to burn excess fat, so we had to get right into the research behind them – especially when we’re reading more negative buzz surrounding this product than anything else. Norpseudoephedrine (d-norpseudoephedrine HCl)

This anorectic agent (also known as cathine) is taken as an appetite suppressant. This psychostimulant drug of the amphetamine family is a “Schedule III drug under the Convention on Psychotropic Substances. In the United States, it is classified as a Schedule IV controlled substance.” [1]

“Once ingested, aloin increases peristaltic contractions in the colon, which induces bowel movements. Aloin also prevents the colon from re-absorbing water from the gastrointestinal tract, which leads to softer stools.” [3] Tri-iodothyronine

This is a hormone made from the thyroid gland, but is found naturally in seafood, bread and table salt. Tri-iodothyronine is said to be the most powerful hormone – having affects on body temperature, growth and heart rate. [4] Atropine Sulfate

Injections of this ingredient are used to treat bradycardia (heart rate exceeding 60 beats per minute) and “second-degree heart block Mobitz type 1 along with “third-degree heart block with a high purkinje or AV-nodal escape rhythm.” [6] Diazepam (Valium)

The research behind these ingredients are sound – but good luck finding anything backing this formula. In fact, these ingredients seem intimidating enough WITH scientific research and clinical studies backing it, let alone with absolutely no information at all.

Redotex has been around as far back early 1980(s). Although the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) in the USA does not encourage the distribution of the product as it is believed that redotex supplements cause all sort of impediments including depression, high blood pressure, obsession and austere diarrhea.

Although the manufacture behind the supplement doesn’t seem to provide much of a warning, the FDA writes: “A health hazard evaluation by CDB of the product Redotex has revealed that the use of Redotex poses a health hazard, especially when taken without adequate medical supervision. The irrational combination of these thyroid, diuretic, stimulant and tranquilizer drugs may cause serious and potentially fatal adverse reactions. These would include alteration of metabolic rate, increased heart rate, lowering or increasing of blood pressure, loss of body electrolytes by diuretic action, as well as confusion and hallucinatory states.” [10]

eMedicineHealth adds, “You should not use this medication if you are allergic to diazepam or similar medicines (Ativan, Klonopin, Restoril, Xanax, and others), or if you have myasthenia gravis, severe liver disease, narrow-angle glaucoma, a severe breathing problem, or sleep apnea.” [9] Is Redotex Safe?

If you’ve been reading this review up to this point you can probably answer this one yourself. There seems to be more negative information on this product than anything else – including official warnings, studies and published reviews. “Dangerous Diet Pill”

Endocrine Society pointed out the dangers of diet pills that weren’t FDA approved and sold outside of the US. It concluded, “Redotex diet pills can cause immediate, profound and possibly life-threatening symptoms with even 2 doses. These pills contain a supra-therapeutic dose of T3, and are combined with stimulants that may exacerbate the thyrotoxic effects of T3, whereas valium can mask some symptoms.” [11]

“Of 34 total Redotex calls received, 55.9% came from the 14 Texas counties that border Mexico. Of the 22 reported Redotex ingestions, 77.3% of the patients were female and 45.5% 20 years or more. Of the 17 ingestions involving no coingestants, 52.9% were already at or en route to a health care facility, 41.2% were managed on site, and 5.9% was referred to a health care facility. The final medical outcome was no effect in 23.5% cases, minor effect in 5.9%, moderate effect in 11.8%, not followed but minimal clinical effects possible in 47.1%, and unable to follow but judged to be potentially toxic in 11.8%. Most Redotex calls to the Texas poison center system originated from counties bordering Mexico.” [12]

Claimed benefits and actual results are two completely different things. In this case, some people are seeing results – but at what cost? We dug into the ingredients to find any evidence supporting the claims, as well as studies backing the formula.

The New England Journal of Medicine linked this ingredient to “sparing lean muscle” in participants who fasted for 80 hours. “We conclude that the decrease in serum T3 concentrations during fasting spares muscle protein. Fasting is accompanied by a lower set point of TSH secretion, which remains sensitive to changes in serum thyroid hormone concentrations. [14] Aloin

Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology concluded that their “knowledge of the therapeutic benefits and risks of some herbal medicines used in Mexico is still limited and efforts to elucidate them should be intensified,” in reference to this ingredient. [15]

ScienceDirect wrote, “Dietary supplementation of aloe components ameliorates intestinal inflammatory responses in a DSS-induced ulcerative colitis rat model. In particular, aloesin was the most potent inhibitor. Further studies are required for a more complete understanding of the specific mechanism of the action of these supplements.” [16] Diazepam

There is some evidence out there of “spared memory function,” with ScienceDirect writing that, “diazepam spares some forms of memory as does amnesia induced by neurological impairment.” [17] Again, not linking any of the ingredient’s benefits to the claims of the product. Details on Redotex and Weight Loss

There is a study published by Obesity Facts, backing Norpseudoephedrine (cathine) for the treatment of obesity. “Cathine appears to be an effective weight-lowering agent for adjunct treatment of obesity, but additional clinical studies on its efficacy and safety are required.” [18]

A study published by EJE on Tri-iodothyronine and energy expenditure wrote, “low T3 concentrations add to metabolic adaptation in underweight patients with AN. During weight gain, increases in T3 are associated with increases in REE, which is independent of FFM. Both results are evidence for a physiologic role of T3 in modulation of energy expenditure in humans.” [19]

Treating obesity requires more than just focusing on the disease alone, it extends further to how the mind is controlled in a relationship with the body. So, trying to lose weight with anorectic drugs like Redotex is more like a dangerous gamble – you could end up losing more than you bargained for.

Phentermine is widely accepted as hunger suppressant, also containing the thyroid hormone called Tri-iodothyronine. The difference is, although phentermine is considered an Orlistat pill, it should never be taken outside serious non-medical thyroid conditions. Phentermine itself is a stimulant. Perfect examples of drugs containing phentermine are Acxion, Mefenorex and Terfamex. Redotex vs. Acxion

Acxion, just like Redotex, is a Mexican dietary pill containing phentermine and used for weight loss. This supplement also contains amphetamines, which are laxatives that have effects on the nervous system. Redotex has this laxative in it as well, but Acxion is legally accepted in the United States – where as Redotex is not.
