Does anyone know how to verify if it is real?

I am reviewing what fat loss drugs and menopause have and don't in common. Why doesn't menopause cause fat loss if it produces constant sweating as say a drug like DNP. Does the sweating come from an increase in a woman's basal metabolic temperature?

Normally the caps are green and yellow....when you take it the first sign its real is you will pee yellow....after that your core temp will rise a degree or more....sweating your ass off is another sign...it can be a pretty miserable exp for some...not so bad for others...but it works for sure...

What causes excessive sweating during a hot flash epidsode?
The main trigger of excessive sweating during hot flashes is not understood but it is generally thought that decreasing estrogen levels which cause hormonal and biochemical fluctuations are responsible. More specifically, hot flashes are the result of the hypothalamus´ (the heat regulatory area of the brain) overproduction of heat. During menopause, declining estrogen levels cause the hypothalamus to discharge chemicals that cause skin blood vessels to expand so that heat can be released, which results in excessive sweating during a hot flash episode.Hot flashes and other vasomotor symptoms (those related to the constriction and dilation of blood vessels) such as dizziness and heart palpitations are less intense and regular following menopause and the majority of women will stop experiencing hot flashes after five years. Unfortunately, for some women, excessive sweating and hot flashes can persist for up to 10 years.Excessive sweating hot flashes are one of the more problematic symptoms of the menopausal transition and so it is vital to take measures to limit their impact. Below you can find information about simple ways of dealing with excessive sweating hot flashes.
And lifted from an article by Anthony Roberts, but generally a good description of what's going on w/ DNP:
In reference to the sweating,
To understand why I was feeling like I was, you need to understand that DNP is amitochondrial uncoupler. This means that it works by uncoupling oxidative phosphorylation, which increases the body's temperature and metabolic rate.Mitochondria are usually called the cell's powerhouse, as they convert foodstuffs into ATP (AdenosineTriPhosphate), which in turn powers your muscles. DNP actually depletes your muscle's ATP, thus requiring your mitochondria to convert more energy from food molecules, and thus create more ATP to replace what was lost.In addition, it makes foodstuffs less efficient as the mitochondria now give more of it off as heat in lieu of turning it into ATP. This may also modulate fatty acid synthesis and inhibit muscle contraction. This is most certainly how DNP exerts its effects, since while it's doing all of this, it's actually lowering your thyroid function, causing you to feel lethargic and tired all the time. To combat the lethargy, I was taking stimulants, but I was still tired most of the time.
