ReFirm Review - Does This Supplement Line Work? Are side effects and lack of results deal breakers?

By Summer Banks on Sep 02, 2016
ReFirm Review

This week, I obsessed over every aspect of the weight-loss line Refirm. We’re always up for reviewing a product that interests dieters, so we took a close look at ingredients, side effects, customer service and clinical support. Our focus extended to hundreds of consumer comments on the web and in forums. We then compiled the facts, condensed and summarized to give you the info you need.


What You Need to Know

Firstly, Refirm is a line of weight-loss supplements that have ingredients like caffeine, green coffee bean, garcinia cambogia, raspberry ketones and green tea leaf, in the AM formula. The PM version contains nothing that will help you lose more weight. When taken daily, the product is supposed to boost metabolism so you get lighter. Though there are multiple pills to take, you can travel with them without a problem.

The product, released by Complete Nutrition sometime after 2004, appears to use all-natural ingredients, a big benefit. Supplements can be bought on the official website or through local stores. We like the “A+” BBB rating and the variety offered by the company, but read on…

Side Effects – “Serious?”

Our first issue pertains to Refirm side effects. We found the same problems popping up time and again. “In the supplement market you will find products that contain a massive amount of stimulants,” says our Research Editor. “When you take too much of a good thing, nothing but trouble results.”

“Today is my first day and I am NOT liking the jitteriness it is giving me with the AM pills,” offers a user.

“Have experienced the jitters, almost like a hotflashes feeling, headache, & contious weird aftertaste burping??. Not to mention the overuse of the restroom,” claims another.

The effects can last beyond the first day. “The second day and on for the next 4 or 5 days it made me feel weird all day. Jitters. Foggy mind. Headache. Bad mood. Ect. I stopped taking it. It did nothing for me but made me feel like crap,” says a buyer.

Lack of Results – “Just Not Effective”

If Refirm ingredients cause dieters to feel bad, at least they could work to help them lose more weight. According to some people who’ve used the supplement, that’s not the case. “Im very disappointed.. I have been following all directions and watching my diet closely.. I have not lost even 1 lb.. save your money its not a good product…,” a user explains.

“I’ve been on ReFirm for 3 weeks. With a healthy diet and exercisin three times a week. I have lost 0 lbs. This severely frustrates me to no end,” says a dieter.

Through research, we’ve found it takes only a little issue, like lack of results, to offset your chances of long-term success. If Refirm products don’t work, it won’t last long on the dieter’s shelf.

The Science – “Validated?”

There are tons of products available from Refirm, but nowhere on the website are there clinical studies proving the ingredients work. We quickly found support for caffeine and green tea, two of the more effective in the formula. We also found that PEA can cause increased blood pressure, heartburn, insomnia and nausea. Raspberry ketones, on the other hand, are nothing more than a “fad”. DietSpotlight prides itself on using science to give supplements a fair shake. If the research is not there, the support isn’t either.

The Bottom Line – Does Refirm Work?

So, what’s my final take on this one? Our look into Refirm was quite interesting. We like that Complete Nutrition has been in the business for 11 years and some of the ingredients in the formulas can help boost metabolism, but we can’t recommend the supplements because of the chance of side effects and lack of results. We’re also concerned that the headquarters is located in a shopping center.

If it’s time to knock off that extra weight, we suggest going with a supplement formulated with clinically-proven ingredients with no side effects and plenty of customer support.

Among the best supplements we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. The formula is a simple four-part proprietary blend supported by published clinical research showing it can help to jump start metabolism and fat loss. There’s no mention of negative side effects, but there’s plenty of talk about dieters seeing great results.

Also, the makers of Leptigen are confident in the formula, so they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, not your average bonus.

How Does ReFirm Compare?

Previous ReFirm Review (Updated June 13, 2014):

What You Should Know

ReFirm is a weight loss supplement kit with AM, PM and Belly Fat Tablets. A similar set up to that of Plexus Triplex. All tablets are packaged in the same kit with instructions, so you know exactly which supplements to take during each day and night. There is a one-month supply in each box. We found the supplement listed on the Complete Nutrition website. The label reads that the supplement is manufactured exclusively for Complete Nutrition.

Product Features

As a dieter, you’re looking for a safe, effective supplement that works by increasing your metabolism and decreasing your hunger. Common among fat burners, like Xenitol or Perfect Garcinia Cambogia, we found these ingredients to be quite interesting. There are proven ingredients like green tea extract and caffeine that help increase metabolism, both of which are found in ReFirm, but we were unable to find an appetite suppressant. Typically, the best appetite suppressants help control blood glucose levels to curb carbohydrate cravings, like chromium. While we like the fact that a couple proven ingredients are found in ReFirm, we don’t like the fact that all ingredients are packaged in a proprietary blend. We have no idea how much caffeine or green tea is included and that’s just in the AM supplement. The PM supplement contains ingredients like Senna, Cascara Sagrada and Dandelion Leaf. The first two ingredients are stimulant laxatives and the last is a diuretic used to push water out of the body. These ingredients should NOT be used as part of a weight loss plan.

  • Ingredients are listed on the official website.
  • Caffeine and green tea are proven to increase heart rate and possibly increase weight loss.


  • There are no amounts for any of the ingredients.
  • The PM supplement contains stimulant laxatives and diuretics.


ReFirm is a three-pill weight loss supplement with an AM, PM and Belly Fat tablet. The active tablets, AM and Belly Fat, both contain stimulants and the PM supplement contains laxatives and diuretics. Supplements with no ingredient amounts are not safe for dieters because they have no idea how much caffeine or other stimulant ingredients they’re taking.

    Can you take refirm if you are on medication for high blood pressure?

    I visited Complete nutrition for the first time. The clerk(Justin) has been there for 2years. He was very knowledgeable about & confident about their products. He even gave me samples on everyone inquired about. So I’m trying the chocolean chews , the pm by refirm , the craving block & the reclaim smart smoothie. The chews started out working well. I had no appetite from 6:30p until I went to bed. I don’t wanna mix the products BC I want to know what’s going to work. I’ll take it from there on whether I’ll actually purchase anything. Sorry to hear a lot of ppl has waisted their money. GET SAMPLES folks. Read Read Read reviews. You have to remember they want your $. Diet fads are notorious for ineffective products. What’s the hurry? Do your homework. The Internet is packed w/info. Research the ingredients in this stuff! Nobody has $ to waste especially w/ no results. I have a weeks worth of samples, that is enough time for me to know if the product works & if not I’ve lost NOTHING!

    Which one did u decide on? I was thinking of getting refirm.


  • 3

    I used their products prior to my wedding to lose a little weight, but anything they make that has caffeine in it really must have a lot. I ‘m a regular coffee drinker and even giving up the coffee, I can still feel the effects 13 hours later after taking them and they keep me up at night (again that is taking the pills at 11 am and going to be at midnight)


  • 4

    Are each and every one of these safe that comes in the starter kit


    Cameron (Editor)

    Some dieters report light headedness, mild belly discomfort and jitters. Refer to the review for more info.

    I bought refirm the whole complete system plus the 30 days of vitamins its been 2 weeks have not lost 1 single pound. I work out 5 days a week and eat very healthy only wanted to tone and lose 10 lbs. it is not working for me at all. I spent 240.00 it is a waste of money.


  • 6

    I got the whole kit, the cleanse, the extra bottle of tone pills & the protein powder..enough for complete 60 days worth.. bought it on sale for a whopping $210… I lost 8lbs on the 10day cleanse alone. Started the refirm am, after lunch & pm stuff yesterday… excited to see what happens next 🙂 no negative effects yet. No nausea or jitters. It has curbed my appetite & it makes unhealthy foodlike hamburger helper taste bland so I don’t want it after I taste it.. been eating protein & veggies & workin out 3 times a week mostly running…


  • 7

    I need to know of a cheap place to get this refirm at



    I bought the ReFirm NOW program 3 weeks ago and so far I’m very satisfied I feel way more energized and focused, my appetite is controlled and most importantly the night formula helps me sleep It’s not s pill like the older ReFirm and the success coach at the store was very educated and personable. I have already lost 8lbs I would recommend ReFirm to anyone trying to lose weight

    Sarah Sheehan

    I thought the price was way high. I’ve had problems taking the cleanse. It’s supposed to “cleanse” you before the Refirm but I actually stopped going for 3 days when I started it. Having trouble just finishing that. Is the pack of Refirm returnable if not opened?


  • 9

    I bought the refirm program and I took it the first day and felt fine. The second day and on for the next 4 or 5 days it made me feel weird all day. Jitters. Foggy mind. Headache. Bad mood. Ect. I stopped taking it. It did nothing for me but made me feel like crap. It cost me $120 and that was a huge waste of money. It sits in a drawer. I’d like to take it to boost a little weight and fat loss but it’s not worth the way it made me feel. Wish I could get my money back but they won’t. I don’t recommend this product


  • 10

    i bought the refirm am enhanced bc i heard on the radio about the scientifically proven weight loss. ive tried every pill out there, i really liked oxyelite pro, but they took that off the market. the ingredients look great, green coffee, garcinia cambogia, rasberry ketones, white kidney bean etc, all have been promoted on the dr. oz show 🙂 i have been trying to lose this last 10 lbs for months, so i will keep you updated weekly. it is frustrating that i cant find any info on the studies or success stories online about it.


  • 11

    I started refirm am pill Monday January 20th 2014 n pm drops I find myself very hungry even after eating so idk must be doing something not curving my appite tho ??? :/



    It has been making me really hungry too!


    Your Name

    I took the am in the evening and the sleep aid. My mouth got dry and my throat got sore. I woke up feeling go so I ate breakfast. I took the AM and went to work. I was barely at work for an hour I got the runs. Then, I started getting hot like I was having hot flashes. My head started hurting plus I threw up. I could not focus and was shaky. I feel I had a reaction. I thought maybe I took it wrong I called the 1800 number they could not explain it. I was told I could return it and to ask the people at the store if anyone else has had the same problem. I think it is bad that she had no explanation. I have heard the product works but be careful you might have the same reaction like I did.


  • 12

    Im on day two of Refirm Now and with a thermal genic you have to eat a good breakfast and lunch before you take your AM and Afternoon c
    Supplements. It helps with the shakes and nausea so if your getting shaky try eating protein, I do a few boiled eggs. Having Raw fruits and Veges help too! Eat every 2-3 hours even if your not hungry. Make a yummy pot of soup, tuna salad etc! Plus don’t forget your water with lemon! Good luck



    I’m on day four n I find myself very hungry like cant get enough to eat help lol yikes my stomach won’t stop growling



    I took an am pill and I’m still shaky….it’s over 12 hrs later !!!



    I started out with jitters as well. The biggest thing with this is you have to eat even if you aren’t hungry! The more calories your body is burning also means more to eat. Otherwise your getting side effects and still not burning fat only storing it!

    Question: bought this prior to bladder suspension surgery. It’s been 5 days and thought I could start in it. But now I’m concerned about the ingredients causing a reverse action on my surgery…pretty much had complete pelvic reconstruction. I’m still very sire and this product is making me urinate even mire. Worried ESP about the PM laxative and diuretic. I didn’t consult my urologist. Any comments please…advice?



    My wife is taking it natural laxitive it won’t have you on the toilet constantly it
    will clean you out though


  • 14

    Honest to God, works! I have been having a terrible time losing weight. My poppies girlfriend bought this kit but she didn’t like them so they were passed down to me. I’ve been taking them for a week straight and am dropping pounds daily! Lower the price.. and you have me for life. I’m going to be sad when they’re all gone because I can’t afford more.. but I plan on starting plexus when that happens. If you got the dough.. do it!!!

    I really like refirm. Tomorrow will be day 7. I haven’t weighed myself in a week. I’m eating a proper diet. Working out everyday. Hopefully I have shed a few pounds



    After I went through the 1st month I lost 13 lbs but the second month there was no reduction in my weight. I think I spent a lot of money for nothing.

    i work at complete nutrition and if you are getting stomach cramps its from the antioxidants we have a new refirm with less you should be able to trade it in for new one


  • 17

    Wondering what diet I should follow to truly lose the weight


    Cameron (Editor)

    Well, Sally, a low calorie, low fat diet will greatly improve your chances of weight loss. The product doesn’t recommend a particular diet to follow.

    I just started the refirm product to help me lose my last 25-30 pounds a little faster. Even on sale I spent over $170! The AM pills knock me over, they must have a ton of caffeine in them. I take them after breakfast and I zoom for hours. They make me feel out of control even. My hands shake and I start sweating and my heart feels like it is racing. That is why I started looking on the internet for comments about the product and found this site. I have to admit I didn’t do much research before buying and the rep. at the store never mentioned the diuretic or the stimulant laxative and never mentioned what would happen when you took them. So THAT was a big surprise on the first morning, the afternoon and the evening. After reading this article I am a little nervouse about continuing to take the product. I was doing well on my diet without any suppliments but I had started to slip some and hoped this would help instead of working out even more and eating less. I can’t handle the AM pills and I am not liking the laxative and water pill part either. I already drink a lot of water and I am now going to the bathroom every 5 minutes and super thirsty. I did lose 5 pounds in the first 4 days but that has scared me more than anything because it is too much too quickly. The other pills that they sold me called TONE, are just like the fish-oil pills that I take for my cholesterol anyway. Just goes to prove that it doesn’t cost anything to lose weight unless you try to cheat!



    with diuretics you need to eat high in potassium if not no telling what might happen. I take the a.m and it doesnt make me feel like that. it makes me feel full and not hungry. I dont eat as much as I did.



    I am right there with the Brenda. The morning pill zooms me to the point that I can’t focus….the rest of it I am doing ok with. I think I am going to take the package back and get non stimulate support.



    I spoke to a rep he informed me there are two AM pills one the equal of two cups of coffee and the other 5 or 6 cups. I was going for the 5 or 6 cups of coffe, he told me the 2 cups of coffee is the one for me. He also said if I didnt feel anything I can come in and trade it in at no cost for the other one. It sounds like you started with the 5 to 6 cups of coffee AM pill. Do you normally drink that much of caffiene a day?
