The Unique History of the Original Fastin
Fastin is a diet pill that hit the market as an appetite suppressing medication that contained phentermine. The creators of the drug, Smith Kline Beechman, chose to remove Fastin from the market in 1998.
The distributor and manufacturer of Fastin chose to reformulate the drug and take advantage of now named brand. The new Fastin was released to the market under the same name but without containing phentermine this time around.
The Misleading Nature of the New Fastin
Fastin manufacturers knew there was market for Fastin, but without the backing of a medical company, they could not release a prescription level medication. Instead, the Fastin needed to be transformed into a supplement. But, the company failed to let customers and consumers know of the change in formulation. On the contrary, they used the fact that the medication was once available only by prescription to boost their marketing campaign.
At the heart of the misleading nature is Phenylethylamine HCL. The original Fastin contained Phentermine HCL, not Phenylethylamine HCL.
The delusion continues when the product claims to contain 37.5 mg of their active ingredient. There is clearly a need to piggy back off the popularity of the Phentermine Fastin which contained 37.5 mg of Phentermine.
The Business Behind the Product – Fastin
Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals is the company that currently produces and sells Fastin. They are still registered for business in the state of George (check here), which is a good thing, but CEO / CFO / and Secretary Jared. R. Wheat, was also a previous agent for American Weight Loss Clinic, Inc which is not longer in business for undisclosed reasons. Dissolved? Cancelled? Terminated?
While the company prides itself on Fastin being the end all of diet pills, the company remains the sole proprietor for Lipodrene, Lipodrene Xtreme, Anavar, Dianabol and Stamina-RX.
To top off the problems, the website is broken down and poorly written. Can anyone say 12-year old “programmer”?
The Standard Return Policy
When looking closely at the return policy, we see nothing special. The company will allow the return of unopened bottle of Fastin for the first 90 days. While this is normal, the money back guarantee is the best.
The Truth About the Free-Trial Autoship
For the forward thinking consumer, Fastin offers an auto-ship program. You will never again have to worry about running out of those diet pills AND for the small price of $139.90 every two months, you can lose weight too! What? The introductory bottle of Fastin is there to draw in the customer with the break even price of $8.95. After that, be prepared to pay high dollar for a diet pill that is based upon false premise. This is one of the most expensive diet pills on the market.
To top it all off, the “fast” shipment will get to your door in 14 days. Thinking about canceling that autoship, you better work fast.
The True Ingredients in Fastin
The base of this diet pill is Phenylthylamine in the proprietary complex. While PEA is good when part of a supplement with other great ingredients, the Fastin’s weak use of PEA and a touch of caffeine is simply a joke. Supporting Fastin is hard when:
- Their marketing practices are full of holes and lies.
- The PEA complex is weak at best.
Fastin Review Conclusion:
The manufacturer and distributor of Fastin is dishonest to say the least. The marketing campaign is based upon the deception of consumers who took the original Fastin. Entrusting your body and weight loss to a company that must lie to reach their sales goals may not be a great idea.
Tip: Try A Pharmacological Diet Pill
The specialty lab that manufacturers Phentramin-d might not have fancy marketing like Fastin does, but it’s a safe, effective, quality product that boost energy and suppresses appetite like prescription Phentermine.
