Chattem Dexatrim is a dietary supplement intended to help the body in reducing stress and increasing the rate of metabolism. Metabolism plays a vital role in weight loss, because it’s the rate at which calories from food are digested into the bloodstream for nutrients. There are many products on the market that claim to be able to help people lose weight, and it can therefore be hard to figure out which are worth buying or using – sometimes products might work but do so unhealthily. It’s important to be able to lose weight in a healthy manner, because overdoing it can lead to problems. In addition to weight loss supplements, it’s necessary to have a good diet and exercise program in place. We’ll review Dexatrim to see if it is a potentially helpful weight loss aid.


Chattem Dexatrim isn’t just a single drug, but comes in a variety of different formulas. Because of this there is no one list of ingredients. However, we found that most if not all versions of this product share some of the same basic formulas. The main ones are Calcium, Chromium, Green Tea Leaf extract and Asian Ginseng. There aren’t any real proven appetite suppressants like Hoodia or any thermogenic ingredients like Avesil to help the body burn fat more easily. We would like more proven ingredients to be used. As it is, the only thing that’s consistent is caffeine. Caffeine is a diuretic that can cause dehydration.

Product Features

Dexatrim pills can be found on many websites, and they have different process depending on the site. However, it generally costs in the neighborhood of $23-26 per bottle. Depending on your view on what actually is in the bottles, this could be expensive or not. At the time of this review, we can find very few good customer testimonials. This we feel to be a bad sign.

  • There are several varieties of the Dexatrim formula suited to different needs; daytime tablets, nighttime tablets and special dietary tablets for people with different requirements.
  • Products are easily to find online – sometimes it takes a lot of research and legwork to find products to purchase or get information about them. The easier it is, the better for the customer.


  • The official Dexatrim website offers information about the product on a basic level, but there’s very little in-depth information about the formula or ingredients or how to make it most effective.
  • There are too many negative testimonials for us to be reassured of this product’s quality.
  • The only main ingredient that holds true throughout all the formulas is caffeine, which is too dangerous for use as a weight-loss aid.


Although appetite suppressants are a good tool to use for weight loss, they shouldn’t be used alone. Also, any good weight loss supplements should use proven ingredients. Dexatrim doesn’t do this, instead relying on caffeine to purge the body of wastes. This only serves as a temporary weight loss aid.
