What You Should Know
TruDerma sells four products for weight loss and weight maintenance – TruHCG, TruTrim, MangoDrin and DermaSlim. Each product claims to help the dieter achieve weight loss goals, but none of the products are backed with clinical research. We looked through the entire website and despite claiming to be clinically proven, there are simply no links or references to clinical research published by a peer-reviewed journal.
The dieting market is a multi-billion dollar business. Companies can create a website and a fantastic product label in a matter of months. The FDA does not review these products, so it is up to the dieter to research all ingredients and potential side effects.

TruDerma does not offer a lot of information on the products sold on the official website. We found no ingredient lists and no testimonials. There are no before and after photos or clinical research. The ingredient lists we found were located on third-party websites for companies. If a company is going to gain support and trust from the visitor and potential buyer, they need to offer some concrete information on supplements.
TruHCG is paired with a dangerously low-calorie diet. TruTrim claims to contain Ephedra. MangoDrin contains a cousin to ephedra and a mood-altering ingredient. DermaSlim is a lotion that claims to slim fat, but fat slimming lotions do not cause weight loss.

TruDerma is a flashy company with several weight loss solutions. They claim to have clinical support for the products, but that clinical support is not listed anywhere on the website. The products are quite expensive and the fact that TruDerma claims to use ephedra is a red flag. Dieters should not take ephedra for weight loss as it is linked several cases of heart attack and death.
