What You Should Know
Accu-Trim Beads are a weight-loss bead that has based itself on a variation of the Chinese practice of Acupuncture. Accu-Trim beads claim to use the same principals as Acupuncture without the needles. Accupuncture and Acupressure teaches that there is energy flowing throughout your body at all times and that there are certain points on your body, that when stuck or pressed on, work with certain parts or organs of the body that will regulate the way they work. They also claim that science has mapped out these energy flows that are called meridians.
The makers of this product claim that, since in the Far East the ear is considered “The Gateway to Health” because of it’s many acupressure points, the Accu-Trim Bead is placed on your ear for maximum benefits. The main benefit claimed is weight loss.
List of Ingredients
AccuTrim Beads are apparently sold by Accu-Trim Centre, but there is no company history or information on the website. You can make a toll-free call and speak to someone, but they don’t tell you who they are or if they are qualified to give medical or weight loss advice over the phone to a client they do not know. There is an article on the website that claims that Accu-Trim Centre did perform a clinical trial involving men and women, but the article itself does not give us time or date of place of this clinical trial, nor who actually wrote the article. We do not know if it’s an actual third party verification of such.
Accu-Trim Beads are not a supplement, so there are no ingredients. From the pictures on the website we have deduced that they are small silver beads that are placed on your ears and worn throughout the day to help with cravings and metabolic function. Since there is no real clinical research placed on the website, we’re not exactly sure how these beads works, besides being in a place on the body that is supposed to have health benefits according to the Chinese practice of Acupressure and Acupuncture. It’s a lot of promises for a product that is actually quite expensive. It also doesn’t seem to tell you whether or not you use one bead each day or if you reuse the same bead.

Accutrim Beads are certainly a different approach to weight loss. If you’ve had positive experiences with acupuncture in the past, it could be something to look into. However, most dieters will probably opt for something a little more proven and a little less “new age.”
