What is Legion Phoenix?
Phoenix is a 100% natural fat burner from the well-known U.S. company Legion. Phoenix is designed to boost your metabolism, enhance fat burning and reduce hunger pangs.
It’s promised to deliver:
- Faster fat loss results
- Increased metabolic efficiency
- Appetite suppression
Legion Phoenix uses caffeine which is a strong stimulant that can provide the benefits mentioned above. However, caffeine alone is not enough to induce significant levels of weight loss, otherwise all people who drink coffee regularly would be lean and ripped.
Legion Pulse has also omitted some of the best ingredients for weight loss, including an appetite suppressant, a blood sugar regulator, and a thermogenic.
But how will it work for you? We look at the ingredients, customer reviews, and more in the sections that follow – read on if you’re ready to learn more!
Legion Phoenix: Dosage Directions
According to the manufacturer’s instructions, Legion Phoenix dosage is 3 capsules first thing in the morning with plenty of water.
Ideally, fat burners will use 3-4 daily servings to keep the benefits between the doses constant. Taking just one serving of fat burning capsules will give you an effect that will last for a few hours, after which the effects wear off, which means you’re left waiting for the next day’s dose.
Over the long-term, this will give you completely different results than if you were taking 3-4 servings per day; the latter ensuring 24/7 fat burning effects.
Ingredients in Legion Phoenix
Here are the ingredients in Legion Phoenix Fat Burner:
- Vitamin B6 (1.7mg)
- Vitamin B12 (2.4mg)
- Iodine (240mcg)
- Caralluma fimbriata Extract (1000mg)
- Coleus forskohlii Extract (250mg)
- Caffeine Anhydrous (200mg)
- Mucuna Pruriens Extract (153mg)
- Griffonia simplicifolia Extract (98% 5-HTP) (153mg)
- Black Ginger Extract (100mg)
- Grains of Paradise Seeds (30mg)
- Laminaria japonica Aresch Extract (16mg)
To start with, Legion Phoenix has a transparent ingredienet label so you can see what you’re paying for. Props for them for doing this – you’d be surprised how many manufacturers decide to hide ingredient dosages in proprietary blends, so they can cheap out on the ingredients, putting lots of cheap ones and only a trace amounts of effective ones to maximize profits.
Anyways, the ingredient label of Legion Phoenix is clean and cGMP certified. Now, you’ll want to know how will these ingredients work for you? What will they do to your body, and are they safe to take long term?
Well, there’s caffeine in Legion Phoenix. Caffeine is a great fat burner and energy booster, but if you cant tolerate higher doses such as the 200mg that’s found in Phoenix, you might get jitters or other side effects. Luckily, there’s a stim-free version of Legion Phoenix without caffeine.
However, the biggest issue with the formula of Legion Phoenix is not its safety, but in our experience, lack of effectiveness. Not only is it missing some of the best core ingredients – including glucomannan for appetite suppression, green tea extract for fat burning, cayenne seed extract for thermogenesis – it also uses numerous unproven ingredients.
So, what results can you realistically expect from using Legion Phoenix? We dive deep into its ingredient formula and the science behind it below:
Vitamin B6 is involved in neurology and may help boost your mood. It also affects testosterone levels. If you’re deficient in vitamin B6, you may notice a lift in your energy levels from supplementation. It’s true, however, that rarely anyone is deficient in it these days. 
Vitamin B12 plays a role in red blood cell production and oxygen transport throughout your body. Although it has no effect on fat loss, vitamin B12 is extremely important for older people who’re prone to deficiencies.
Iodine plays a crucial role in the production of thyroid hormones, which are important for maintaining your metabolism. As iodine supplementation can cause issues in people with thyroid conditions, it’s best to check with your doctor before supplementation if that’s you.
Caralluma fimbriata Extract
Caralluma fimbriata – a fancy name! What is it really, and what does the science say about it? Caralluma Fimbriata is a form of edible cactus that grows in India and is known for its foul smell. People have used it traditionally to help curb food cravings.
Although some early evidence suggest Caralluma fimbriata may hold some potential in terms of appetite suppression, the plant’s effects on the body when used for longer than 2 months are unknown. Therefore, it’s recommended to avoid long-term use of this ingredient. Caralluma fimbriata is also known to cause stomach pain and other gastrointestinal issues in some people. A better alternative would be a proven appetite suppressant like Glucomannan fiber.
Coleus forskohlii Extract
Coleus forskohlii is a plant that contains an active compound called Forskolin. When ingested, forskolin increases the levels of cAMP molecules in your body.
cAMP is a molecule that signals to certain enzymes and cells in your body to increase stored fat breakdown – basically, making you burn more fat for energy. The effects of Forskolin on cAMP don’t appear overly potent, though, which is why many of the top-rated fat burners don’t use it.
Caffeine is a strong thermogenic and energy enhancer. It binds to adenosine receptors in your brain to promote wakefulness and feelings of motivation and improved focus.
There’s 200mg of caffeine in Legion Phoenix, so make sure you’re not intolerant to the stimulant if you want to avoid side effects.
Mucuna Pruriens Extract
Mucuna Pruriens is a source of L-DOPA, which your brain uses to make dopamine. L-DOPA is commonly used in Parkinson’s patients to offset some of the dopamine loss.
Increasing your dopamine levels won’t make you burn more fat, but it may enhance your mood and motivation to stick to your goals. 
Griffonia simplicifolia Extract
Griffonia simplicifolia is a woody plant that grows in moist parts of West and Central Africa. It is known for containing the active compound 5-HTP, which your brain uses to make serotonin.
Beyond influencing your mood and sleep cycle, serotonin also affects your motor cycle. Your brain maintains a fine and delicate balance between having too little and too much serotonin (neither of which is healthy). This is why supplementation of serotonin-influencing compounds may not always be the smartest idea. Not to mention it will not help you burn more fat.
Black Ginger Extract
Also known as Thai Ginseng, Black Ginger looks darker than traditional Ginger but shares many of its health effects.
Black Ginger’s compounds are primarily used for suppressing inflammation and reducing oxidative stress in the body. However, Black ginger is not proven to increase weight loss in human subjects.
Grains of Paradise Seeds
Grains of Paradise is becoming increasingly popular in fat burners, even though current evidence doesn’t show concrete benefits in terms of weight loss. Yes, there are a handful of studies that have found positive effects of Grains of Paradise on decreasing body mass index, but the ingredient’s optimal dose and lo long-term safety are unknown. We need more studies and study reviews to confirm whether Grains of Paradise is healthy for weight loss or not.
Laminaria japonica Aresch Extract
Laminaria japonica Aresch is a type of seaweed that is mainly used for culinary purposes in East Asia. Apart from being a source of nutrients that are beneficial to our general health, Laminaria japonica Aresch has no use in a fat burner.
Legion Phoenix Reviews and Testimonials
We took to Amazon to see what customers had to say about Legion Phoenix. At the moment, it has 3.9 stars out of over 1,400 reviews.
Here are a few of the Legion Phoenix testimonials that caught our eye:
“Made me nauseous, even after trying a few times; tried with and without food but still didn’t feel good after.” – J.C.
“I have tried this for a couple of weeks now and while I have not noticed any energy boost, it has helped with appetite control quite well. The pills go down easy and no aftertaste.” – M.Shannon
“I eat A VERY good diet and exercise (workout) regularly. I noticed zero difference taking these. And also my review is being hidden which I find a deceitful tactic to sell more useless products and rip people off.” – Cookie1974
Legion Phoenix does contain caffeine, so you may get jitters, nervousness, and palpitations if you’re intolerant to stimulants.
Do not take Legion Phoenix if you’re on anti-depressants. It contains 5-HTP which, when combined with the medication, can lead to serotonin syndrome. If you’re unsure, it’s best to talk to your doctor before using Legion Phoenix.
Cost, Where to Buy, and Other Things to Consider
Legion Phoenix is available to buy on the official website, as well as on Amazon. It costs $37.99 per bottle for one-time purchase.
There’s also an option of saving 10% if you subscribe to monthly delivery of Legion Phoenix.
Although it’s on the pricier side, you do get a full money-back guarantee if you’re not happy with the results from using Legion Phoenix.
Legion Phoenix Review: The Bottom Line
As clean as its ingredient label is, Legion Phoenix only contains a few ingredients that could help you lose fat. Caffeine is the most effective of the bunch, so if you pick the stim-free version of Legion Phoenix, the weight loss effects will be even weaker.
It has L-DOPA and 5-HTP which are great for improving your mood. However, there’s no green tea extract, cayenne pepper extract, chromium, vitamin D, or other essential nutrients that would increase your metabolism and make you burn more calories.
If you’re in for general health benefits and some mild appetite suppression, then Legion Phoenix could work for you. As far as direct weight loss goes, it’s not the best value for money fat burner you can buy today.
