What You Should Know
Yet another caffeine-free fat burner has hit the market claiming to be the next big product to solve dieter’s problems once and for all, Ultimate Trim. The official website appears like more of an infomercial than a supplement portal, but all the necessary information is available with a little look around. We found a complete list of ingredients in label form and direct ordering. The dieter does not have to worry about the stimulant effects of caffeine, but there is a caffeine derivative in the formula, so stimulation is where the weight loss originates.
List of Ingredients
Vitamin B6, Folate, Vitamin B12.
Proprietary Blend: Caralluma Fimbriata Extract, Caralluma Fimbriata Powder, Green Tea Leaf Extract, Rhodiola Rosea Root Extract, Theobromine, ATP Disodium and Cayenne.
Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12 are energy producing vitamins. While they work to produce energy in the body naturally, they will not boost metabolism.
The proprietary blend is the meat of the supplement. Caralluma has a few clinical studies backing its effects on appetite. There is even a reference from the National Institutes of Health on the Ultimate Trim website.
Green Tea Leaf is the mother of all fat burners, but we have no idea how much is in Ultimate Trim. Everyone has access to the same clinical studies, so why hide the fact that you’re including a clinically proven amount? Green tea, unless decaffeinated, will contain caffeine.
Theobromine is in the caffeine family. It does have stimulant effects on the body though the effects or less than that of caffeine. Ultimate Trim did not claim to be stimulant free, just caffeine free.
We love the fact that Ultimate Trim offers clinical studies for some of the ingredients in the formula. The studies are listed on outside websites and completed by some pretty important journals and government bodies.
- All ingredients are listed on the Ultimate Trim website.
- Some ingredients are proven.
- Clinical studies listed in the product description.
- May not contain enough green tea extract.
- Still contains a stimulant, just not caffeine.
It is always funny when a company states a product is caffeine-free as if that is a selling point. Sure, caffeine causes side effects for some people, but it does not cause negative side effects like synephrine or ephedra. There are tons of stimulants that Ultimate Trim could have included, just not caffeine.
The formula is pretty sound and there is clinical research for some of the ingredients, but the company makes a huge mistake by hiding some of the ingredients in a proprietary blend. We would love to know how much of these ingredients are included.
