List of Ingredients
Chromium, Proprietary Fat Burning Complex – 3-Acetyl-7-Oxo Dehydroepiandrosterone, Evodia, Yohimbe Bark Extract. Proprietary Sustained Energy Blend – Rhodiola Rosea Extract, Caffeine, Vinpocetine and Bioperine.
Aside from Chromium, which we can assume is the appetite suppressant used in Natural Trim, all other ingredients are listed as part of proprietary blends. Proprietary is a simple way to include ingredient names that may be proven and trusted without telling the dieter how much of the ingredient is added to the supplement formula. We tend to avoid products unwilling to share ingredient specifics.
The first proprietary blend is the Fat Burning Complex. 3-Acetyl-7-Oxo Dehydroepiandrosterone, also known as 7-Keto is thought to promote weight loss without the side effects associated with DHEA. DHEA converts to 7-Keto in the body. Animal studies have proven a slight increase in weight loss, but animals has a far different genetic makeup than humans and no human trials have been completed regarding weight loss and 7-Keto. Evodia comes from a seasonal tree and if often used in alternative medicine to treat stomach ailments. Evodia is known to increase appetite, which does not help a dieter lose more weight. Yohimbe is a stimulant that increases heart rate.
The Sustained Energy Complex in Natural Trim contains caffeine, a natural stimulant. Rhodiola Rosea Extract is a slight stimulant and mood elevator. Vinpocetine is an interesting ingredient that is often used as a memory-enhancing supplement. There is a long list of potential side effects from taking Vinpocetine including nausea, dizziness and anxiety. Bioperine is simple black pepper and is supposed to increase fat burn though this effect is not proven. Natural Trim sells for $50.00 for a one-month supply.

If a dieter is going to pay $50 per month for a weight loss supplement, the claims made by the manufacturer should be proven. Testimonials and before and after photos do not always provide enough support for a supplement’s claims to convince a dieter to spend money on a specific product like Natural Trim.
