Super Citrimax Review - Does This Dietary Supplement Work? Are efficacy and side effects deal breakers?

Editor's Review: 3.3 / 5.0

super-citrimax-product-imageI paused before I hit the “publish” button on this one, because my conclusion was a bit of a shocker. Super Citrimax caught our attention recently with its fat-burning claims. We decided to take a look at the ingredients, side effects, clinical studies and customer support. Then we perused hundreds of dieter reviews on the product. Here is a condensed and summarized version to give you the info you need.

EDITOR'S TIP: Combine Super Citrimax with a proven fat burner such as Leptigen for better results.

What You Need to Know

First of all, Super Citrimax is a dietary supplement containing a mixture of hydroxycitric acid (HCA), chromium, potassium and gymnema sylvestre. The formula supposedly supports weight-loss and burns fat when taken regularly – meaning up to 6 pills per day. Super Citrimax can be found online for $15-$20 for 90 capsules.

A product of the Puritan’s Pride line from the parent company Nutrition Now (started about 20 years ago), Super Citrimax is a cost-effective way to supplement your diet. It’s available in health stores and on Puritan.com. We like the affordable cost and the use of natural ingredients, but read on…

Efficacy – ”Does it Work?”

The first concern we have with Super Citrimax ingredients is its efficacy. “If you ingest up to 6 capsules of Super Citrimax per day, you expect to lose fat,” said our research editor, “but many users claim that the pills don’t do anything for them.”

“Does not do anything,” said one user.

“Supposed to help me lose weight,” said another, “but it did not do that at all!”

Scroll below for one of the best products we’ve seen in 2015.

Side Effects–”Another Concern”

As with many weight-loss supplements, Super Citrimax has been known to cause a few side effects along the way. “I took this product as suggested and it provided no benefit as far as I could tell, it did however seem to give me a stomache ache,” said one customer online.

“I took for a few days and experienced a really bad headache. Stopped for about 1 week, and started taking again and headaches returned,” said another.

Our research shows that even one non-desirable trait in a product can stunt long-term success. If Super Citrimax does induce headaches and cause other problems for customers, that could be a big problem.

The Science – “Clinical Backing?”

There is some clinical research pointing to success for some of Citrimax’s ingredients, like chromium. The problem is that gymnema sylvestre has not been proven to work and potassium, which also takes up room in the supplement, won’t make you lose weight either. The product as a whole hasn’t been clinically tested either, which always gives us cause for concern at DietSpotlight.

The Bottom Line – Does Super Citrimax Work?

So, here’s the final take on this one. We thought Super Citrimax might be a good product at first, but it didn’t quite stand up to the scrutiny. We like the longevity of the company and the low price, but the possibility for side effects and the lack of clinical research add to our concerns, so we don’t necessarily feel comfortable recommending this.

If you want to see substantial results from a fat burning product, we suggest you look for one that uses cutting-edge ingredients and has been clinically studied.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2015 is one called Leptigen. It blends four different high-powered ingredients to help burn fat and boost metabolism. The formula has been clinically proven and we can’t find any word of adverse side effects. The reviews, from dieters one the web, also point to great success.

The makers of Leptigen are offering a Special Trial Offer to anyone interested in the product, and that is always a good sign.

    Bought Nature’s Plus Citrimax/1000mg. Been on it for 2 months now. Did not lose a single pound. I work out (with intensity) consistently and have cleaned up my diet with NO results. Will hve my thyroid checked.

    Is this product good for a person with type 2 diabetes

    I took super citrimx (750 MG) for 5 days in total and I can confimn that it inhibits hunger. I took one tablet a day for three days and never felt hungry until later in the evening. I increaded the dosage to two tablets on the 4th day and it gave me a pounding and frieghtening headche. I skipped the 5th day after the headcahe scare but took one tablet on the 6th day, felt fine and had to force myself to eat something, for I never felt hungry that day at all. It tastes nasty and I have no more intention of continuing to take it — I do not have a weight problem, I merely was testing to determine its efficacy.

    I have been taking citrimax for the past two months. I am also taking hypertension medication. Does citrimax elevate blood pressure in any way? I want to continue my cetrimax program but I don’t want to risk elevating my blood pressure in a harmful way. Thank you (concerned)

    I have taken Super Citrimax for 5 days and I am not sleeping well. Does this product have a stimulant in it??
    Is it safe to take with Lamictal and nesefadone?? I’m thinking the Super Citrimax mixed with the other medication I’m taking may not be a good fit for me.

    I’m a bit concerned now because I bought interhealth brand super citrimax and I’m reading They do not guarantee their product, they have no success testimonials on their Web site, I’m just all around concerned w/ the thought of I waisted my money. I wasn’t satisfied w/ the fact that they sell this product yet they don’t seem confident( in my opinion.) I say this due to the lacking evidence and lacking confidence that they display in the product they make. Not to mention they don’t even give an ingredients list. It’s like they’re hiding something.

    where do you buy it



    I buy my at our local grocery store Ralphs, although they also carry it at CVS Drug Store. The prices for it vary so I look for it when it’s on sale and stock up. The calorie count per 8 0z ( approx 1/2 bottle) is 10 cal and only 1 gram of sugar (some flavors have 0) and only 2 grams of carbs!



    It is also sold at Whole Foods Market for around $23

    I ingest Super Citrimax in the drink Fuze Slenderize and it workes very well for me. I lost about 27 lbs in 3-4 mths. have more energy and feel great. I have hypothyroidism but take Armour (which is a natural product) so can’t speak to how it works with Levothyroxine which I refuse to take.



    I also drink Fuse Slendorize and like you have stated it has Super Citrimax and Chronium also. Chronium is also supposed to aid in weight loss. I have lost weight and inches but am waiting to go to my Drs appt to see how much.



    How often do you drink it? I just started two days ago.



    Hi Vicki it’s great you lost 27 lbs. Can you tell me how much Fuze you drink in a day and if you changed your diet or exercised . Thank you.

    Super CitriMax, with ChromeMate, in the right dose, taken faithfully, will help you lose weight. There is solid research to prove this. Amazon sells a book that will tell you exactly how much to take as well as many places to find the supplements. The book is ‘The Natural Fat-Loss Pharmacy’ by Dr. Harry Preuss. Amazon also sells the supplements. I was taking the Now Foods Super CitriMax and seeing no results and realized I was forgetting to take them sometimes so went back to read the book again. When I started carefully taking what the research indicated I needed to take to be effective, I started really losing weight – 25 lbs in 5 months when I had not been able to lose anything for the longest time. I’ve been fighting the pre-diabetes diagnosis for the past couple of years so I know why the battle has been so hard. This supplement helped me finally over the very large wall. My doctor is very pleased with the results and with the supplements.


    Your Name

    What is the exact name of the chromate. Did bottle read chromate?

    I am on a hypothyroidism med. Levothyroxine. The litature that comes with it says not to take any diet pills. Does anyone know if these natural supplements are dangerous? I don’t get a clear answer from my Dr.



    I have taken Citrimax for years for decreasing my blood sugar levels. It works so well, it is not harmful, it is a natural substance from a fruit and it helps curb your appetite. It is so great if you are diabetic. It is not harmful. I would take it anytime. It is good for your body.

    Strange. I bought Super CitriMax on the internet. It’s a Swanson product. I haven’t taken any of it yet so can’t recommend it or say anything about it, except it is available on line.



    I purchased Super Citrimax at Vitamin World and have been taking this product for about one month now. It seems to work very well. You appetite decreases and never feel hungry. At first, I was reluctant to take any OTC products as I wasn’t sure if it’s safe for the body. I can say that I have lost weight and waist inches. I am considering taking Super Citrimax along with Tonalin CLA….maybe that will give me additional energy and block any fat cell intake. Good Luck!



    What a coincidence! I’m taking Super Citrimax and Tonalin CLA that i bought from Vitamin World. I’m almost at my ideal weight but have a few more pounds to go.



    Where did you find the best place to purchase this? I am currently on Herbalmagic. What a rip that is. Way too much money. I live in ONtario.

    Thank you.


    May I ask how much weight you lost and in what time frame. Also, are you dieting from foods and exercising or just taking the product. What is daily dose? THanks


    so right now i have been taking super citrimax and i do feel less hungry so im guessing its working lol anyways while taking this product did you change your diet and workout habits??
