Both of these products shout about their ability to help you lose weight, so which one should you spend your hard earned money on?
In our comparison article, we examine the most important qualities of a weight loss pill which you need to think about when making your choice.
We have looked behind the labels to answer the debate over which is the best fat burner: Leanbean or PhenQ?
In the process we considered the following categories:
• Company reputation and product background
• The servings
• The ingredients and dosages
• Side effects
Once we have examined each of these, we will pull everything together and decide which is the winner.
If you’re in a hurry and don’t have time to read the below, be sure to check out our pick of the best fat burner supplements on the market right now.
So, let’s not waste any more time and get started on our comparison.
To get started, we are going to have a look at a general overview of these two supplements.
• Designed for women
• Endorsed by surfer Bree Kleintop
• All natural ingredients
• Encourages fat burning
• Helps weight loss
• No useless ‘filler’ ingredients
• Curbs appetite
• Manufactured and sold only by PhenQ
• Pharmaceutical grade quality
• Boosts energy
• Burns fat
• Regulates appetite
PhenQ is marketed towards both men and women.
And when it comes to the overall reputation Leanbean caught our eye due to the big name endorsements.
Whilst PhenQ does have some before and after pics on its website. The depth of reviews and video results with Leanbean suggest users have had the best results with this female fat burner.
One of the most important thing to have a look at when deciding which fat burner to choose, is the strength and regularity of the dosage.
It is all very well taking one pill in the morning, but that has likely passed through your system and stopped having an effect by mid- afternoon.
The most effective weight loss supplements direct you to take their product at regular intervals throughout the day.
This ensures you are always feeling the fat burning benefits, not just for a couple hours in the morning or evening.
A bottle of Leanbean contains 120 capsules which is enough for a month supply. They direct you to take their capsule 4 times per day with food and lots of water.
A bottle of PhenQ contains 60 capsules which is also a month supply. You are directed to take 2 pills per day. One with breakfast and one with lunch.
They also state you mustn’t take PhenQ after 3pm as it can interfere with your sleep. This raised our eyebrows a little bit, the product must be high stimulants if you can’t take it after mid-afternoon.
By offering more capsules in a months supply and twice the dosage of PhenQ, clearly Leanbean is the winner here.
So we have taken a look at the overview and servings, now we are going to compare the ingredients in more detail. First, let’s have a look at the labels.
There are a few similarities between the ingredient lists but not many.
Both Leanbean and PhenQ contain a form of black pepper, chromium and capsicum.
Black pepper (piperine) can reduce the absorption of fat from our diet. Chromium and capsicum have appetite reducing and metabolism boosting properties respectively.
At first glance, it is clear that Leanbean has not only more ingredients, but much higher doses of them too.
PhenQ includes 150 mg of caffeine which can boost energy and also help with fat loss. A downside of this is that it can make some people feel jittery and also keep you awake at night.
Leanbean doesn’t use any caffeine anhydrous or common stimulants, which means it is suitable for anyone at any-time of day.
We like how Leanbean includes popular natural fat burning ingredients like green tea and turmeric. It also uses an effective source of the hunger busting fiber: glucomannan.
The highest dose ingredient in PhenQ is calcium carbonate, which is supposed to prevent fat accumulation.
However, they quote a study to support this claim that used 800 mg calcium per day, whereas their formula only contains 625 mg. This is a definite mark down for PhenQ.
Both Leanbean and PhenQ use mostly natural ingredients.
However, as with all dietary supplements, if you have allergies you may not be completely safe from potential side effects. In this case it’s important to read the bottle thoroughly before buying any weight loss product.
As we mentioned earlier, PhenQ has quite high amounts of caffeine, which can be problematic for those who are sensitive to stimulants.
Caffeine can cause anxiety, sleeplessness, stomach aches, rapid heart rate and nausea.
Leanbean uses no stimulants but there is some caffeine within green tea. So if you are very sensitive you may feel an effect from that.
Garcinia cambogia and glucomannan can rarely cause stomach upsets, but for most people these issues don’t persist for too long, especially if remember to stay well hydrated whilst using the product.
Last but certainly not least is our price comparison section.
Leanbean is priced at $59 / £35 / €40 for a bottle containing a one-month supply. It can only be purchased from the official website.
PhenQ is priced at $69.95 / £51.69 / €58.65 for a one month supply bottle. PhenQ can also only be purchased via their official website.
It is pretty clear that Leanbean is the best value here.
Not only do you get 4 capsules per day for a month, but Leanbean is $10 cheaper too.
Conclusion – our final thoughts and recommendation
Well here we are at the end of our comparison review of Leanbean vs PhenQ.
We have seen that both supplements have their benefits, but when it comes to quantity and quality of ingredients, dosage and price, Leanbean has to be our overall winner here.
It really is a clean sweep across each and every category.
We don’t like how PhenQ has low dosage ingredients aside from caffeine and fewer serving regularity.
This means it isn’t suitable for everyone and also cannot be taken in the late afternoon otherwise it disrupts sleep.
It is also more expensive than Leanbean for fewer capsules.
So, in conclusion, Leanbean is the best fat burner when compared to PhenQ in our opinion.
