Dexatrim

Supplement has been around for more than 25 years.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

As one of the most recognized names in dieting for more than a quarter century, Dexatrim offers an all-natural appetite suppressant that allows your body to burn fat and calories at a quicker rate than without.

There are several different Dexatrim products with varying ingredients. These products include Dexatrim Max Complex 7, Dexatrim Daytime Appitite Control, Dexatrim Max Slim Packs, Dexatrim Natural Green Tea, and Dexatrim Extra Energy.

Dexatrim is a drug-free supplement, since the removal of FDA-banned ephedrine.

While the brand is highly recognized, a 2005 study listed Dexatrim last out of 30 diet supplements because of poor results in boosting metabolism, weight loss potential, suppressing appetite and quality of ingredients.

PRO
  • In use for more than 25 years
  • Ephedrine free
  • Gluten free
CON
  • Studies show poor results
  • No FDA approval
DIET and NUTRITION

Dexatrim suggests that its diet supplement is most effective when combined with a balanced diet and consistent exercise. It's argued that the same results can be found when you simply eat right and exercise.

You can find Dexatrim in several different varieties, including Dexatrim Max Complex 7, Dexatrim Daytime Appitite Control, Dexatrim Max Slim Packs, Dexatrim Natural Green Tea, and Dexatrim Extra Energy.

Past varieties include Dexatrim Results, Dexatrim Results Ephedrine Free, Dexatrim Natural No Caffeine, Dexatrim Natural Ephedrine Free and Dexatrim Natural Green Tea.

EXERCISE

Recommends it, but nothing specific given.

ADMINISTRATION

For the best results, it's recommended that you take Dexatrim in the morning or early afternoon, 30 minutes before a meal or with a meal. It's recommended that you avoid taking Dexatrim at night, because it may make falling asleep difficult for some.

CONCLUSION

The verdict is mixed. Many people have used Dexatrim over the years with success. But with so much competition now, there may be others appetite-suppressing supplements available that are more effective. Also, as with all supplements, Dexatrim must be combined with portion control and exercise to be fully effective.

It is a waste of money. I still was hungry and it did not work at all. It is not a miracle pill. I wish I had my $19.95.
back.

I was doing research for a friend and found out..
Yes, dexatrim has been around for many years, but it has been pulled from the shelves twice from the FDA. Yet it still finds it's way back on the shelves with new ingredients.

very, good appetite suppressor, i just bought the pills today, and took 2 after my workout and breakfast. I had to literally make myself eat about 9 pm. something small of course,but so far its working well. i used dexatrim back in the day when it contained the ephedra and it helped me lose all my baby weight. I just had my 5th child 6 months ago so i'm hoping i will get the same effects as the old dexatrim without the side effects. so far so good, i'll write back in a few weeks with any success to report

I was Dexedrine for a year, (prescribed by my doctor) which is basically the same thing. For taking off the weight yeah works wonders, really I think I was down 30 Lbs in two months, BUT after being on it that long I was up every morning sick, and now have to eat yogurt ever day to build my stomach lining back up. Please be carful using products like this one?? eat a lot of yogurt if you are going to use it?.:)

Shut up

I feel safe about using something that's been around for a longtime. I still remember the commercial from when i was a kid.


CurlyQ

I don't know, it doesn't sound it rates too high. Theres a lot of other stuff out there that i've heard better things about.


deborah

I'm of the "tried and true" philosophy. It's been around forever and i feel like i've used it just as long. Works fine for me.
