Raspberry Ketone Plus is among the products that is taking advantage of the most recently hyped weight loss ingredient that has taken over for acai berry as a fat burning supplement that has not been proven. This particular nonprescription diet pill claims to provide the dieter with the benefits of raspberry ketone that had previously gone unrecognized.
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.).
Bradeson Naturals Thermogenic Energy & Focus is marketed as a metabolism booster that can increase muscle strength, support appetite suppression, boost energy and enhance mental focus. It is a weight management aid from Bradeson Naturals.
For those who wish to take this OTC diet pill to help them with their weight loss efforts, the suggested use is to take 1 capsule twice a day 30 minutes before a meal with a full glass of water. It may also be taken as directed by the user’s healthcare provider.
Hoodiadrene is a nonprescription diet pill that is marketed for weight management and claims to provide metabolism support for both men and women. It is also advertised as having a “complete scientific formula.” Created by Newton-Everette Neutraceuticals, LLC, it is yet another supplement product that has jumped on the unproven hoodia bandwagon.
Fat-Away is a product manufactured by Extreme Health Products and that is marketed as being the “most advanced natural weight loss technology” that is currently on the market. This is not a rare claim in the nonprescription weight loss industry.
This product is designed to be a fat burner, which means that if it works, it will help the body to be able to burn through calories more quickly than it otherwise would without the use of the product. These products – among those that work – typically need to be combined with cardio exercise in order to be their most effective.
Appatrol is another form of nonprescription supplement that was designed to help dieters to be able to lose weight. It is based on the primary ingredient of caralluma fimbriata, and was created on the principle of traditional Ayurvedic medicine. This product is manufactured by a company called NaturaMed Health.
Slim Bomb is a nonprescription diet pill that is by no means new to the industry. It is made by a manufacturer called Slimming Solutions and it has been sold for about a decade. The company refers to this product as an herbal product, as it brings together a combination of various natural ingredients.
Trimdextra is another over the counter weight loss product that claims to be the best option available for dieters to lose extra fat more quickly and easily. This one is a newcomer to the marketplace, having only been released in 2013. It is nonprescription and is available for purchase online.
BURN XT is a thermogenic fat burner for both men and women who are seeking increased fat loss, appetite suppression, increased energy and who want to burn more calories. It is produced by Jacked Factory and claims to contain science-backed ingredients.
4Life Carb BLX is a weight loss pill that is available over the counter, with claims that it will stop the body from being able to digest fat. Though simply looking at the name would suggest that this is a carb blocker, when the marketing literature for this product is consulted, it is clear that it is meant for stopping fat absorption.
This is a rather confusing situation as the name of the product and its function don’t seem to align. This indicates that the product was strategically named to draw attention to itself in the popular low-carb dieting market, despite functioning differently, or perhaps it was once a carb blocker that was reformulated to be a fat blocker instead.
