Trim-Right is a nonprescription diet supplement that is marketed as being an appetite suppressant along with being a metabolism enhancer that will allow dieters to be able to get rid of their excess weight. The official website for the product makes a number of bold claims that are very common in this industry, but it will take further investigation to know whether or not the product can actually live up to those promises.
Trim-Right Key Ingredients
To begin examining the product before trying it, it is important to look at the Trim-Right ingredients. The manufacturer says that this product is made up of 100 percent natural substances. While it makes big statements about shrinking the appetite and boosting the metabolism for faster fat burning, it doesn’t make any mention of side effects. This leaves a very positive impression of the pill but does make one wonder whether or not it is too good to be true.
Among the key ingredients in Trim-Right are:
- Green Tea Extract
- Apple Cider Vinegar
How These Ingredients May Be Beneficial
If these ingredients look familiar to you, this is likely because they can be commonly found in many OTC diet pill formulas, not only Trim-Right. Each one has been clinically researched and they are frequently touted in the weight loss industry as being advantageous to those who are keen to drop pounds.
Here’s a closer look at each one:
- Guarana is primarily a stimulant that has thermogenic properties. This helps to increase the body’s ability to burn fat because it is using more energy to produce body heat. This is a temporary effect and is usually only measurably effective when combined with cardio exercises.
- Green tea extract contains a number of different chemicals – including caffeine – that can help to increase the rate of fat loss. However, in order to accomplish this goal, a large quantity of green tea must be taken every day. More importantly, in most studies, the weight loss that did occur was not statistically significant. What’s more, the official website for Trim-Right does not disclose the amount of each ingredient that are included in the product. Because of this, it is impossible to know whether enough green tea extract is included in the formula to produce any benefits.
- Capsicum is a substance that is found in hot peppers. It is actually the substance that gives them the hot taste. Among the reactions that it produces in the body is to increase the temperature, creating a thermogenic effect and faster metabolism. This may help to increase fat burning when combined with cardiovascular exercise.
- Apple cider vinegar can act as an appetite suppressant and can help to reduce water retention. Some believe that it might help to even out blood sugar levels, as well. That effect could, in theory, help to keep some food cravings under control as blood glucose isn’t rising and falling as dramatically.
Quality Ingredients, but Proof of Efficacy is Lacking
The bottom line is that while theses ingredients have been studied and some have shown some potential promise in helping to support weight loss efforts, the reality is that none of them have undergone significant study to prove their efficacy or their safety. Furthermore, the Trim-Right formula has never been studied, so there is no way of knowing if the amounts of the ingredients it has used deliver any real benefit at all.
In addition to using this product in combination with a healthy calorie-conscious diet and regular exercise, it is also recommended that you first consult with your healthcare provider, particularly if you have a medical condition.
August 2020 Update
As of August 2020, it appears that Trim-Right has been discontinued. It could still be viewed on Amazon UK where it was once for sale. However, it is listed as being “currently unavailable.” Furthermore, the official website for this product is gone, another indication that this diet pill is no longer being produced.
Although this news may be discouraging if you had hoped to try this product, on the plus side, there are other diet pills available on the OTC weight loss supplement market that contain the key ingredients in Trim-Right.
That being said, just remember that what was said in the original Trim-Right review above still holds true today. None of these ingredients are clinically proven so take care to avoid weight management aids that contain them and make bold and radical claims about these substances.
Finally, keep in mind that guarana contains caffeine. Therefore, if you are sensitive to stimulants and have selected a nonprescription diet pill that includes guarana, remember that it is a stimulant and can cause unwanted side effects, including jitters and sleep disturbance, effects that could be made worse when combined with other stimulant substances (e.g. caffeine anhydrous, green tea, green coffee bean, kola nut, bitter orange/synephrine/citrus aurantium, etc.).
