What You Should Know
Actrim Plus is sold as a “complete package” to help consumers lose weight. It is manufactured by Arden Healthcare, a company based in the United Kingdom which markets its products worldwide. They offer a range of non-drug based products intended to combat the effects of aging and weight gain. Their website emphasizes that their products are natural – developed from combinations of fruit extracts and other ingredients. Their website is differentiated by market, and allows consumers from around the world to buy their product online.
Actrim Plus is sold in 60 tablet bottles. Since the dosage recommends 6 tables be taken per day (2 tablets after each meal), each bottle represents a 10 day supply of the treatment. In fact, the manufacturer recommends a 10 day course of treatment for each round of weight loss.
While the manufacturer’s website does not provide a comprehensive listing of ingredients, it emphasizes chromium picolinate as the “essential ingredient.” Other fruit extracts are also included, but it is unclear specifically which. Arden Healthcare cites studies which show that chromium picolinate simultaneously builds muscle and trims fat. The website notes that the effects of Actrim Plus are enhanced with regular exercise. Users of Actrim Plus are invited to join an online motivational support program focusing on more than just dietary supplements. The support program focuses on a balanced, positive lifestyle including a healthy diet and exercise.

Actrim Plus distinguishes itself from other similar dietary supplements by offering an online motivational support program that works alongside the course of treatment. The focus on exercise and balanced meals and making small, incremental changes to your life, in addition to just taking the supplement is refreshing and likely to help motivate people interested in losing weight. The detailed website with information about clinical trials and a page of frequently asked questions is also an asset. Many people interested in permanent weight loss, who are willing to make permanent changes to their lifestyle, may find Actrim Plus a useful part of their weight loss program. It would be nice, however, if Arden Healthcare made more specific information about their support program available before committing to purchasing the product.
