What You Should Know
The weight loss product Calotren is a protein supplement manufactured and distributed by Top of the World Distributors. Calotren seems to claim to be a metabolic supplement that is suitable for both overweight users and users looking to improve their metabolic health. Interestingly, Calotren seems to come in both liquid and capsule form. A 30-day supply of the supplement retails from the manufacturer for approximately $65.00, making it a moderately expensive regimen to maintain. Instructions for Calotren use indicate that a full course of the supplement is intended to last 90 days, yielding weight loss and a more toned physique.
Both the liquid and capsule forms of Calotren are protein-based formulations. The product contains no ephedra or caffeine, both of which have been found to over-stimulate the metabolism and potentially cause rapid heart-rate and “jitters.” The official product website goes out of its way to point out that Calotren does not “stimulate, starve or trick” your body. While that does sound appealing, the further product claims are a bit ambiguous, implying that Calotren acts as a “support” for the body’s natural fat burning cycle, while also boosting stamina in non-overweight users. This ambiguity, both as to the product’s applications and its active ingredients, strikes us as a bit off. The mysterious Calotren protein also claims to benefit wrinkled skin.
List of Ingredients
The active ingredients of liquid Calotren are: Oxygenated water, Collagen Hydrolysate (Bovine Source), Aloe Vera, Glycerin, Potassium Sorbate, Natural Raspberry Flavoring, Methyl Paraben.
The active ingredients in capsule Calotren are: Collagen Hydrolysate (Bovine or Marine Source – your choice), Aloe Vera, Vegetable Glycerin.
Inactive ingredients in both forms of the product: Gelatin, Magnesium Stearate, Stearic Acid and Microcrystalline Cellulose.
Calotren is intended to be taken once per day. Take either a single tablespoon or four pills of Calotren in the evening before going to sleep. For most effective results, do not eat anything three hours prior to taking the product and, if taking the pills, use only a glass of water to wash them down. This is so that your body can begin using the Calotren while you sleep. Top of the World Distributors also claim that taking Calotren in the morning or before exercising will give users increased energy.

While we certainly appreciate that Calotren does not contain caffeine or other potentially harmful stimulants, we’re not really impressed by what it does contain. We are also weary of any product that claims to help with weight loss, boost energy and clear up wrinkles, all in one package. We’d love to believe in Calotren, but the official website offers no user testimonials or before-and-after photos. With so many proprietary products on the market for the same price, we’d hold out for something that can offer more sophisticated lab research and an approach that is specifically targeted towards weight loss.
