I might have been a little too on the nose with this article title, but the fact is that our bodies are dramatically different machines during the day versus at night. And it just makes sense for some people to have two different supplements for those times. Fact is, millions of people try losing weight every year, and every year millions of people don’t succeed.
A lot of that comes down to not having the right help. So in this piece we’ll break down two of our absolute best-rated Fat Burners to help you make an informed decision for your goals.
What is PhenQ?
PhenQ hit the market years ago with a revolutionary ingredient, α-Lacys Reset. This proprietary ingredient has demonstrated weight and fat loss in numerous studies. Combining it with proven and safe appetite suppressants has kept PhenQ at the top of Men’s and Women’s fat burner lists.
PhenQ Pros and Cons
What is PhenQ PM?
It probably doesn’t surprise anyone, but PhenQ is also the maker of PhenQ PM. This makes it both a great compliment to PhenQ, but also shows it’s a quality supplement in its own right. It works by keeping you better rested so that you can attack the next day without having to hit the fridge at midnight.
An astounding study recently determined that better, longer sleep could result in over 8 lbs. of weight loss a year. This study cited reduced calorie intake, but others have also noted improved metabolism the following day.
PhenQ PM Pros and Cons
As you may have noticed, the biggest difference between PhenQ and its PM counterpart is that they fill two distinct roles for our bodies. In the daytime formula, you have active stimulants, thermogenic compounds, and fiber to keep you feeling fuller, longer.
The nighttime formula, on the other hand, is designed to keep your body nutrient-rich and boosted with sleep-time hormones, like serotonin. This combination isn’t designed to keep you energized–it’s designed to help keep you sleeping! As we noted above, better sleep can result in myriad positive health outcomes, not the least of which is weight loss.
Ingredients in Common
Given their disparate functions, you might expect that these two don’t have many ingredients in common. And you’d be right; they only have one.
Technically, Chromium is an “essential mineral” that all humans need to function. But the levels the body needs are quite small. On the flip side, the more a body supplements with Chromium, the better their insulin response is. This results in lower cravings for sugar, and better metabolism of carbs when they are eaten.
PhenQ Unique Ingredients
Now for a peek behind the PhenQ daytime formula’s curtain.
The big-hitter, here. Lacys Reset has been studied and researched for years, with consistent weight loss in study participants. What’s more, it’s even demonstrated actual fat loss.
Capsimax is made with the proven thermogenic compound capsaicin. In some studies, capsaicin has demonstrated passive fat-burning in doses a third of that in PhenQ.
We’ve touched on thermogenics in this piece, but for a quick refresher, caffeine is the original passive fat-burner–not to mention it can fuel your workouts and keep you focused.
For decades we’ve all been told about the benefits of a high-fiber diet. But few people realize that the right fiber, like from the Nopal Cactus, can actually decrease your appetite–safely, effectively, daily.
An amino acid that many modern diets may be lacking, Carnitine helps keep the body processing nutrients more efficiently–meaning less food for the same energy.
PhenQ actually includes this important mineral twice–once as part of the Lacy’s Reset formula, and again on its own. That’s because Magnesium has powerful insulin sensitivity affects, meaning your body will burn sugars more often and more effectively.
PhenQ PM Unique Ingredients
Many of us aren’t aware that some of our sleep disturbances are actually sleep apnea precursors. That’s why PhenQ PM has L-Arginine, which boosts Nitric Oxide, preventing these precursor symptoms.
Another amino acid, L-Lysine has been extensively studied because it improves quality of sleep in clinical research. This means you wake up less often, and feeling more energized in the morning.
I’ve found Theanine in everything from T-Boosters to Nootropics–and well that I have! This amazing compound reduces anxiety through a process called Anxiolysis, which studies have proven can improve sleep without sedation–no feeling groggy the next day.
Full name? 5-HydroxyTryptophan. As in, the stuff in turkey that makes us sleepy. It’s been extensively researched because it not only helps us get to sleep quicker, it actually leads to more REM sleep.
Vitamins B1, B5, B6, and B7
We’ve all been there–we can’t sleep and that fridge is calling to us. What some of us may not know is that an underlying cause of this could be low vitamin nutrients in our blood stream, especially the B Vitamins.
A mineral that actually found in grains and other crops, more and more research is finding credit to the claims that it can help with lower anxiety and better sleep.
Vitamin C can’t do everything, but it does a lot! Including recent studies into how it affects our sleep patterns. I always remind my readers, though, that because Vitamin C is water soluble you can’t just take it once in the morning and be done–you should take it multiple times a day.
The literal fuel for our cells and nervous system, getting Choline into our bodies before sleep can mean better metabolism–while we’re laying down–and even improved metabolic reactions on waking.
Neither PhenQ nor PhenQ PM have any known side effects. I should note, however, that some of the ingredients in PhenQ may not be right for pregnant or nursing women, especially the caffeine anhydrous.
That being said, I always encourage anyone I coach to talk to their primary physician before beginning a workout or supplement routine.
Prices and Offers
The makers of PhenQ and PhenQ PM don’t really want a lot of competition between their products. They both come with 60 day money back guarantees, and their best options for purchase are both buy-two get-one free.
It doesn’t feel right to pick a winner, here, as they both serve such drastically different functions. If I had to pick one, I’d ask the individual what their current weight loss routine is like. If you’re already having great workouts, your having no trouble sticking to a diet, but you need a night-time aid, then PhenQ PM is for you.
Buf if you’re like most people who need a nudge to get into a routine, an assist keeping cravings down, and you want proven thermogenesis throughout every day, then PhenQ is the clear choice. Ideally, you could use both, but if that’s not an option, you’ll get better and faster results with the original formula.
