TrimFit Review - Does This Fat Burner Work? Are potentially unsafe ingredients and side effects deal breakers?

By Summer Banks on Aug 28, 2016
TrimFit Review

Over half of diet program on the market have absolutely ZERO scientific backing. Let’s see if Trimfit is one of those. Our attention will turn toward ingredients, side effects, clinical studies and customer service quality. Additionally, we’ll analyze hundreds of comments and reviews. Then, we’ll summarize and refine to give you the info you need.


What is Trimfit?

First off, Trimfit is a fat burner containing forskolin 125mg. There is also mention of Advantra Z, green tea and kelp on certain websites. The recommended serving is two capsules per day, which supposedly promotes weight-loss. You can take the supplement on the go, one benefit.

There is no information as to when Trimfit was released, but the company behind it is Leading Health Supplements. You can buy it from Amazon, but we found no other retailers selling the formula. We like that the product contains no synthetic ingredients and it seems affordable, but read on…

Potentially Unsafe Ingredients –”Causing Issues?”

The first negative that concerned us about Trimfit ingredients was the fact that they might not be safe. “If there is any question as to whether or not you are at risk by taking a supplement the answer is simple, don’t take it.” said our Research Editor.

According to research and expert advice, Advantra Z, or synephrine, can cause side effects similar to ephedra. The risk of adverse reactions is even higher if the stimulant is combined with caffeine, as is the case with Trimfit.

“Iodine [kelp is a source] can cause significant side effects in some people. Common side effects include nausea and stomach pain, runny nose, headache, metallic taste, and diarrhea,” reported the National Institutes of Health.

Though there is some question as to whether or not Trimfit is safe, there are dieters who had something positive to say. As one shared, “This product is good if you need a cleanser or your bowel is not regular. ”

Side Effects – “Makes You Feel Different?”

Dieters commenting on Trimfit reactions claim there are some issues with sleep and pain, among others. “I don’t like the effect Trim Fit supplements have on me. It was the same feeling as taking the ephedrine based supplement. I felt nervous and jittery all the time, I couldn’t sleep and my muscles ached,” reported a user.

“I took your Trim Fit product for two weeks and they upset my system,” commented a customer.

“When I use Trim Fit, I become irritable,” stated a consumer.

Reports of side effects were common, but not everyone had the same experience. According to a dieter, “You will not have any bad experience or uncontrolled bowel movements.”

Our research and experience concludes that something small, like side effects, could put the brakes on long-term success. If Trimfit causes negative reactions, will dieters want to use it?

The Science – “Based on Research?”

We found some information on Trimfit online, but nothing about clinical research. This is concerning, considering the product contains beneficial ingredients such as forskolin and green tea. At DietSpotlight, locating science to back claims is one of the biggest parts of the equation. If there are no studies, we don’t bother with it.

The Bottom Line – Does Trimfit Work?

So, should you run out and purchase Trimfit? We like that we located some positive comments and that the supplement contains some natural ingredients, but we have reservations about the lack of scientific research linking the formula to weight-loss. Plus, we’re concerned that the product contains a potentially unsafe formula and it may cause side effects.

If you’d like to drop those extra pounds, we recommend going with a product containing ingredients backed by published clinical research with no reported side effects.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. The supplement consists of a formula containing a four-ingredient proprietary blend, which has been shown in studies to help boost metabolism and accelerate fat loss. Dieter comments on the web show people seeing excellent results and there’s no one talking about negative side effects.

Also, the company that makes Leptigen is providing a Special Trial Offer, a good sign of confidence in the supplement.

How Does TrimFit Compare?

Previous TrimFit Review (Updated October 2, 2014):

What You Should Know

There are a couple of products known as TrimFit on the market. One well-known product called TrimFit contains Trysinex, a proprietary blend, and is meant to target fat loss in the waist area. A clinical study at the University of Connecticut showed that results were achieved in 8 weeks. Quest TrimFit is another weight-loss supplement that synergistically blends ingredients to promote natural and progressive weight loss.

It is sometimes difficult to determine which TrimFit product is being explained or reviewed. Research carefully to know what product you want and make sure you get the right one.

List of Ingredients

TrimFit contains Trysinex, a patented blend of polysaccharides and esterified fatty acids. Other ingredients are tapioca and gelatin.

Quest TrimFit contains Tonalin (Conjugated Linoleic Acid), Advantra-Z (Citrus aurantium), Green Tea (Camellia sinensis), St. John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum), Trim-Zyme Enzyme Blend, Kelp (Fucus vesiculosus), and Lipoic Acid.

Product Features

TrimFit should be used in combination with a low-calorie diet and a good exercise program. The user should take 2 capsules twice a day, 30 minutes before a meal, with 8 oz. of water or juice. The effects of the ingredients are not well-known, since the ingredients in Trysinex are not disclosed.

The website for Quest TrimFit does not give directions for use. The ingredients in Quest TrimFit work together to help you lose weight. Tonalin (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) inhibits the enzyme lipoprotein lipase from breaking down and storing fat. Advantra-Z (Citrus aurantium) is a digestive stimulant that raises the resting metabolic rate without negative side effects. Green Tea (Camellia sinensis) is an antioxidant that improves digestion and lowers cholesterol. St. John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum) increases serotonin, which in turn decreases cravings and stabilizes mood. Trim-Zyme Enzyme Blend provides the enzymes needed to break down and assimilate food properly. Kelp (Fucus vesiculosus) contains vitamins and minerals, including iodine, which assists the thyroid in controlling metabolism and weight. Lipoic Acid is an antioxidant that helps the body utilize glucose.


  • A clinical study of TrimFit showed results after 8 weeks of daily use.
  • No caffeine or stimulants.
  • TrimFit is suitable for diabetics.


  • Has a lack of before/after photos.
  • Has no money-back guarantee.
  • Has no free gift with purchase.
  • May cause side effects.
  • Likely to regain weight if you stop using the product.
  • Products with the same/similar names may be confusing.


Knowing what you are taking is important with any supplement. It is difficult to recommend either TrimFit product when there is information missing with both. Neither appears to be FDA-tested. It is also difficult to find user reviews or pricing information. Most importantly, knowing exactly what ingredients you are putting into your body is important for dieting safely.

TrimFit Questions & Answers:

We dug around for information on Trimfit so we could give you this detailed FAQ.

What are the side effects of Trimfit?

Trimfit side effects, according to some reviews we found, may include jitters, insomnia and muscle aches.

What are the ingredients in Trimfit?

The only Trimfit ingredient we could verify is forskolin. We did find mention of guarana, Advantra Z and kelp on a single website that doesn’t appear to be associated with the supplement.

Does Trimfit work?

There are no clinical studies into Trimfit and there’s no official website to make claims that there is. If forskolin is the only ingredient in the formula, you may not see the results you’re looking for. The only research we found used a tiny group of people to test 250 mg. There was a small increase in weight-loss, but the results are not considered significant because the pool of participants was too small. This formula only supplies 125 mg per capsule.

If you’re thinking about changing out Trimfit for a supplement that’s supported by some amazing reviews, you may want to consider one like Leptigen.

How much does Trimfit cost?

You can expect to pay about $20 for 60 capsules, or a one-month supply. You can pay about the same amount for a product that supplies the same number of pills at 250 mg each.

How should I take Trimfit?

You take one capsule in the morning and another in the afternoon.

Can I take Trimfit if I have a health condition?

We suggest giving your physician a call if you are under 18 years old, taking prescription medications, have a medical condition, are nursing, pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant.

What do users like about Trimfit?

We found very few reviews for Trimfit, but the ones we did find claimed they liked the improvement in bowel function.

What do users NOT like about Trimfit?

The complaints we found claimed upset stomach and jitters were a problem.

Who is the company behind Trimfit?

We found no official website and the only name on the bottle is Trimfit. If there is another company behind the supplement there’s no information on that business.

Are there any reports of weight-loss when using Trimfit?

We found no customer reviews that claimed weight-loss when using Trimfit.

How do I contact Trimfit customer service?

Trimfit customer service is available by phone at 1-866-379-0232, according to the product label.

Does Trimfit come with a guarantee?

There’s no official website, but Amazon may allow returns. Check with customer service before placing your order for specific details.

Do you know of any special deals or discounts on Trimfit?

No, we found nothing about special deals, discounts or promotions for Trimfit. We have noticed quite a bit of buzz around Leptigen’s Special Trial Offer, which is only the cost of shipping and handling. Click here to give it a try.

    if you use trial products be prepared to received a hefty charge per bottle in exactly 14 days from time of order, so if you only want the trial you will get full bottles and then a new shipment charged to you before you have used it for the trial period..it comes to almost 150.00

    TrimFit. You are a BIG BIG SCAM
    I called and canceled my order and you still sent it. And sent me a bill charge for $9.92 when it was suppose to be $4.95 . What’s that for if not a SCAM. I’M turning it over to the attorney general in canceling my credit card. How you get what’s coming to you for doing this to people .


    Robin McCallum

    I totally agree with this review. I had a total of almost $150.00 charged to my bank account for ‘trial’. That was after I’d specifically emailed them to tell them I had better not be charged any more.

    I can not take this but I have no idea how to return it I can not find a number to call them to find out how to return this.
    please let me know how I can return my trimfit and get my money back


    Stephen (Editor)

    Try calling the company directly at 1-866-379-0232, Renea.



    This company is a scam. I have tried every number provided even the above listed invalid number. If the company cared they’d have a true customer service option. These pills TrimFit Garcinia Cambogia made me very sick. All i wanted to do is the right thing and call and cancel. However, the numbers provided are useless. 1-866-379-0233 (invalid) 1-888-240-9246(rings then goes dead no options) 1-888-539-5209 (rings then goes dead no optipns). I will be turning this over to the better business burial and local attorney general. I however have already taken the proper measures to keep them from getting any additional money from me.


    Candace (Editor)

    Thanks for the info, Melissa.



    I signed up for a free trial yesterday and after reading other people’s comments I tried calling both numbers but no luck,did any of you guys ever got hold of these people,I’m trying to cancel my free trial.


    Robin McCallum

    Watch your bank account (or credit card), you’ll have no luck canceling and then you’ll see another charge (besides the ‘only’ shipping cost).



    The product did not work for me either. And I’ve been trying to figure out how to contact the company to return the product and get credit for it. I found the above information and tried all the phone numbers. The phone number that finally got me a real person who gave me an RMA # to return the most recent shipment for a credit to my credit card (they have a 30 day money back return policy) was the 888-240-9246 number.


    Your Name

    This is the right number!!! I had no problem returning the product and didn’t get charged again!!!



    Yep, same thing happened to me. Major scam!


    Your Name

    I have called the number located on the bottle, and since reading have called multiple other times just to see if fluke.

    This company has shady practices. They offered a one month supply of Garcinia Cambogia for $4.95. I ordered it. when it arrived, there was no invoice or packing slip – just the bottle of pills. Yesterday, I saw on my credit card statement that they had charged me $49.95. I called the number on my Statement and it is a pager for St. Michael’s Hospital. I entered my number twice and no one ever returned my call. I then called the number on the bottle which was answered as customer service. I was told that you were sent a 30 day supply but if you didn’t call them within 14 days you were then charged the full price. This information was NEVER communicated with me. I ordered on line and I read the “fine print” and there was nothing in there that said this or I would never have ordered this product. I will be writing a letter to the Better Business Bureau about this company and posting negative reviews on their social media pages. I have challenged the charge with my credit card company and will fight to the bitter end to have my monies refunded.



    I went on the website to check it out.. There IS a small link at the bottom on the page BEFORE YOU EVEN PUT IN YOUR CC INFO THAT CLEARLY STATES TERMS AND CONDITIONS, but everybody nowadays NEVER TAKES TIME TO READ ANYTHING before they give all their info away… It CLEARLY STATES TO READ ALL INFO CAREFULLY BEFORE PURCHASING… It CLEARLY STATES that if you DO NOT CALL TO CANCEL within 14 days, YOU WILL BE BILLED FOR THE $79.95(roughly) AND ENROLLED MONTHLY THEREAFTER… All you people these days just CLICK, ADD YOUR INFO, CLICK, CLICK PAY AND WANT IT NOW… Never reading, or doing any research, then always claiming to be A VICTIM… I went to the bottom of the page, read ALL the TERMS AND CONDITIONS, saw it was TOTALLY NOT WORTH IT, went to only ONE additional Web page to do a tiny bit of research, and made an informed decision that it is clearly not worth trying.. How’s about you people START TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS AND QUIT ALWAYS WHINING, BITCHING AND PLAYING THE VICTIM CARD BECAUSE YOU’RE USED TO COMPLAINING AND BEING HANDED EVERYTHING LIKE A CHILD… GROW THE EFF UP.


    Your Name

    it gets charged before 14 day trial is over Jason! It starts counting from order date not by the date of shipping or estimate of arrival, so it doesn’t make a difference if you call on a 14 day trial! It has to be done before or you get charged!


    Your Name

    Came on a little strong there Jason. Your right but a little strong there buddy.
