What You Should Know
Xtreme Trim RDS-X is a thermogenic supplement manufactured and sold by Vitamin World. The ingredient list is available on the official website via a product label. Thermogenic supplements often contain large amounts of caffeine to stimulant heart rate, which is the case for Xtreme Trim RDS-X. High levels of caffeine can inhibit sleep patterns for 12 hours so taking the supplement in the afternoon can cause the dieter to feel tired, even after sleeping through the night. The ingredient list is long and packed with proprietary blends that hide the true amounts of some crucial ingredients.

It is highly unlikely that the average dieter has any idea how most of the ingredients in Xtreme Trim RDS-X work in the body. The burn blend is simple. Caffeine boosts heart rate and metabolism, but there is 195 mg of caffeine in the supplement. Caffeine has a 12-hour life in humans. This means it takes 12 hours for the body to process the caffeine and heart rate to slow down. If the dieter takes the supplement in the afternoon, it will affect sleep patterns.
Green tea extract is a fantastic antioxidant with strong clinical support for weight loss. Unfortunately, there is not enough green tea to boost metabolism. The average clinical study includes 300 to 350 mg of green tea. This supplement contains 59 mg per serving.
Vitamin World tries to thrown in a couple of well-known ingredients to support weight loss claims. Hoodia gordonii, for instance, is listed with the Melt Blend. Hoodia does not melt anything, let alone fat or calories. It is supposed to control hunger, but clinical research proves otherwise.
While willow bark is a natural pain reliever, but that has nothing to do with weight loss. Years ago when Ephedra was legal, white willow bark was included as part of an herbal ECA stack. ECA, or ephedra, caffeine and aspirin, is a proven combination of weight loss ingredients, but ephedra is illegal for use as a weight loss ingredient in the United States and some other countries.
