Dexatrim Max Complex 7 is from a company that has a long and successful history in developing diet supplements. Unfortunately, many of the ingredients they have used in the past have subsequently been found to be harmful. This reduces confidence in the ingredients they use presently. Further, while many of the ingredients that are included, such as the tea extracts, have proven clinical benefits others do not. Even those ingredients that may be beneficial are listed in the proprietary blend and therefore the exact amounts are unknown. This makes it impossible to determine if those amounts are sufficient to provide results. Finally, while individual ingredients have some clinical proof the overall product does not.
