Looking at some diet products can be painful, especially if there’s no scientific backing for the formula. Let’s find out if Healthe Trim is in this group. We dove right into the ingredients, side effects, customer service and research. With facts gathered from reading hundreds of dieter experiences, we have what we need. We summarized and refined to give you the bottom line.

Healthe Trim Readers: Click here to find out why we're giving away samples of our product, Leptigen.

What is Healthe Trim?

Firstly, Healthe Trim is a weight-loss formula that contains hoodia gordonii, green tea, hydroxycitric acid and caralluma fimbriata. [1] There’s no information on bottle size, but users claim one order lasts less than two weeks if you take three pills daily, as suggested. You can take the supplement anywhere and that’s good for dieters.

Healthy Life Sciences, the makers of Healthe Trim, was started in 2009. Customers have the option of using a money-back guarantee and the supplement is made in the USA, two benefits. We like the informative customer service department and easy online ordering, but read on…

Healthe Trim Side Effects – “No Thank You?”

The first problem we noticed with Healthe Trim ingredients was reports of side effects. “There are some good ingredients in this supplement,” offers our Research Editor. “The trouble is that something in the formula is causing customers to feel bad.” [2]

“They made me feel nauseous and jittery i couldn’t keep taking them. I kept trying to drink more water, but it didn’t help,” a buyer reports.

One dieter says,” I took the recommended amount at the recommended time and I had a stomach ache and felt kind of weird.”

We have to look at all sides of the story – so how about some positive experiences? One user shared, “I think the placebo effect is in play because I want them to work, but I have no negative side effects.” [3]

Another suggested a way to kick the adverse reactions. He said, “I would take them with something like a protein bar in the morning. I would suggest this to anyone who has been experiencing negative side effects.”

FTC Case – “Wowsers!”

The FTC opened a case against Healthe Trim in 2014. According to the file, the company was making claims without scientific support. The ruling resulted in Healthy Life Sciences being banned from marketing the supplement based on unrealistic promises.

A writer at the FTC says, “According to the FTC, the only thing consumers lost when they bought Healthe Trim was money.” [4]

The FTC case explains, “In radio and television ads, Dwyer and HealthyLife Sciences claimed Healthe Trim was clinically proven to cause weight loss, and would suppress users’ appetites and boost their metabolisms to help them lose weight without exercising or changing their daily routine.”

The issue may be big or small, but all it takes is one problem, like faulty statements, to stop the dieter from achieving long-term results. If Healthe Trim causes side effects and if the company made unrealistic claims, that’s enough to wash our hands of the product. [5]

The Science – “Proven Results?”

Healthe Trim is clearly not backed up with clinical proof, as discovered by the FTC. Green tea is a strong ingredient with support, but that’s not the case with the rest. Even if Healthe Trim were tested, the official website shows nothing. The researchers at DietSpotlight look to science for the facts and when it doesn’t exist that’s problematic.

The Bottom Line – Does Healthe Trim Work?

Let’s rev up our engines and speed right into the facts. Healthe Trim was quite intriguing. We were happy with the helpful customer service department and there is a money-back guarantee, but we don’t feel satisfied enough, when we compare the pros and cons, to support this one. The FTC settled a case against Healthe Trim and the makers of the supplement regarding false claims and the BBB rates the company with a “D+”.

When the time comes and you’re ready to head down the road to weight-loss, our suggestion is simple – find a supplement with proven ingredients and a decent price. If customer service is supportive and helpful that’s a huge plus.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Leptigen. This formula has those proven ingredients in a four-part proprietary blend and it is proven to help spark metabolism and ignite fat loss. The customer service department is easy to reach and the price is affordable. There’s no talk of negative side effects and results are outstanding, according to dieters who’ve tried it.

Also, it’s with confidence that the company behind Leptigen is offering a Special Trial Offer, not your everyday benefit.

Previous Healthe Trim Review (Updated July 11, 2014):

What You Should Know about Healthe Trim

Healthy Life Sciences offers a weight loss / energy supplement called Healthe Trim. The product's official website claims you can get "high school skinny" while taking the product. Healthy Sciences also offers Healthe Plex, Healthe Shield and Healthe Pulse. All products claim to work well within the body without the unnatural jitters often associated with other weight loss and supplement products. Additional information on Healthe Trim, and other Healthy Life Sciences products, can be received via email.

List of Healthe Trim Ingredients

Thermo Energy Booster: green tea, hoodia gordonii, caralluma fimbriata and essential nutrients. Resveratrol, chromium picolinate, green tea leaf extract, hoodia gordonii, caralluma fimbriata, coix seed, poria cocos, cassia seed, lotus leaf, water plantain, methionine, mulberry leaf, gymnema sylvestre, eleutherococus senticosus, pyruvate and trace minerals.

Product Features

Healthe Trim uses a thermo energy booster as itís weight loss base. The energy booster includes caffeine, via the green tea, to boost energy levels. A loss of energy can be common during weight loss. Hoodia gordonii does not increase energy but some manufacturers include the ingredient to reduce hunger. There is very little scientific support of hoodia gordonii. According to the website literature, the ingredients work on a more cellular level to boost fat metabolism. Lotus leaf is one of the ingredients that is supposed to increase fat burn. Again, there is no research proof to support this claim offered on the website or found online. The Healthe Trim supplement is to be taken once a day. One to two capsules can be taken in the morning before breakfast. It is suggested that at least two to three glasses of water be consumed each day with the supplement. This is a little lower than normal suggestions of at least 64 ounces of water every day. Before eating after taking Healthe Trim, the user should wait at least three hours. The product is priced at $54.95 for one bottle which lasts 30 days. There is a 30 day money back guarantee on the product.

Advantages Healthe Trim

  • Healthy Life Sciences offers ingredient information on the product.
  • Some ingredients, like Green Tea, can promote weight loss.

Disadvantages of Healthe Trim

  • There are no links to scientific research supporting the ingredient claims.
  • Healthe Trim could cost more than some people are willing to pay at $54.95.
  • May cause nausea and jitters. (See reader reviews.)
  • There is no free trial of Healthe Trim currently available.

Conclusion

Losing weight is all about increasing energy and staying focused. Some of the Healthe Trim claims are supported with proven ingredients like Green Tea. Others, like hunger prevention via Hoodia, are not supported. All-in-all, users may seem a small boost in energy if they are not used to taking caffeine supplements or drinking caffeinated drinks. Otherwise, this product looks pretty generic and there may not be too many extra pounds lost and "high school skinny" may not be a reality that is attainable through the products use.

Healthe Trim Scientific Abstracts:

Hoodia Gordonii

Decreases in food intake (12%-26%), dependent upon the dose, were noticed at doses of 100 and 150 mg/kg body weight (p < 0.05). Appetite was suppressed for 6 hours and intake of food was restored within a 24 hour period following the treatment’s end. There was no change in blood glucose, and insulin levels were not substantially affected. Metabolic and hormonal alterations because of treatment with Hoodia gordonii could be a factor for its anorectic activity. [1]

Resveratrol

There was substantial weight-loss -6.82 kg (95% confidence interval -8.37 to -5.26) noticed in the group taking orlistat-resveratrol supplementation in comparison to -3.50 kg (-5.05 to -1.95, P = 0.021) in the placebo group. Significant reductions in body mass index, fat mass, leptin, waist circumference, triglycerides, and leptin/adiponectin ratio were noticed within the mixture. In conclusion, the orlistat-resveratrol mixture was the most effective treatment for weight-loss. [2]

Green Tea

Catechins in the tea were found to greatly reduce body weight and substantially maintain body weight following a period of weight-loss. Suppression of this effect by those taking caffeine regularly (>300 mg per day) was not clinically relevant. The minor effect of catechins in Caucasian participants (microcirc=-0.82 kg) in comparison to Asian participants (microcirc=-1.51 kg; P=0.37) failed to reach clinical relevance as well. The interaction between caffeine consumption and ethnicity was a strong moderator (P=0.04). Epigallocatechin gallate-caffeine combination has a minor beneficial effect on weight-loss and weight maintenance. The results from the study indicate that habitual caffeine consumption, as well as ethnicity, could be moderators, as they both have an influence on the tea’s catechins. [3]

Hydroxycitric Acid

G Cambogia subjects, at 16 weeks, experienced substantially decreased visceral, total and subcutaneous fat areas in comparison to the placebo group (P<0.001). No significant adverse effects were noticed at any point during the testing, and there were no substantial differences noticed in body weight or body mass index at the 12th week. There were, however, the minor numeric reductions in body weight as well as body mass index in males. In conclusion, G Cambogia decreased abdominal fat buildup in patients who displayed the visceral fat accumulation type of obesity. No rebound effects were noticed. It was then expected that G Cambogia could be a helpful tool for the prevention as well as the reduction of visceral fat accumulation. [4]

Caralluma Fimbriata

By the end of intervention (30 and 60 days), lipids, blood glucose, and dietary intake, anthropometric measurements, and assessment of appetite were carried out. Hunger levels and waist circumference were substantially reduced during the observation period in the experimental group. There was a noticeable tendency towards a greater reduction in body weight, hip circumference, body fat and energy intake, and body mass index between assessments, although not substantially different than the placebo group. Caralluma extract seems to reduce appetite and decrease waist circumference when compared with placebo throughout a 2 month period. [5]

Healthe Trim is a simple weight-loss supplement with an ingredient list that reads far too much like hundreds of other formulas. Even if one or two of the ingredients were beneficial, without a product label we have no idea if there's enough.

it makes me hungrier take my card number off do not send more do not pass go i swear these bogus companies see me coming and they say dummy will buy this

Rhonda Trammell

Once the company charges you.. It’s all over.. They charge you the full charges on the 11th day ( you have 10 days to check it out- doesn’t matter how long it took to be shipped to you (5 days- so imhad 5 days to check out) It ‘s “business” days when they ship it out, but calender days that you have to check it out- including weekends. When I got them on the phone I told them I wanted to cancel it ( I thought I was returning the one for 14.95) he ” cancelled” it and I asked him if I had to return the bottle. He said I could for a full refund or be could give me a return auth number. I told him just charge me half and I would keep the bottle. I found out today while reviewing my cc statements they had charged me the full 148.00. So I called today to tell them the guy never mentioned I was paying half of the 148.00 and I thought it was half of 14.95- it was a misunderstanding. So because its within the 30 day unconditional guarantee period.. I will opt to send them all back when I get them so please give me the return auth number. I went all the way up to management and they said too bad for me.. I already agreed to half.. They understand it was a misunderstanding but they said it was MY responsibility to make clear to the agent that we were talking about the 148.00 total charge. I said I didn’t even know I was charged that until I saw my cc statement today. He again said tough sh$&. You already agreed. I said you can’t tell me that this is the kind of company that realizes there was a misunderstanding and you won’t do any thing about it and he said “yep, that’s what I’m telling you”.. This was a manager.

Don’t waste your money on this garbage! It made me feel so sick that I couldn’t even get out of bed! The nausea and headache was more than I could handle. I couldn’t even open my eyes. I started taking 1 with lots of water. Healthe Trim is trying to kill all over-weight people with this garbage. Sign up at a local gym and watch what you eat instead.

Cleta Somogyi

Great post! Nothing new for me to change on my site, but its nice to have confidence when something is reaffirmed!

jaz

I see many directions on how to take it. What is your recommendation?

Morgan Singlton

Hello.This article was extremely motivating, especially since I was looking for thoughts on this subject last Friday.

Vicky CO

I just started taking Healthe Trim yesterday. I took 1 at about 8am and then ate breakfast at around 10am. I then ate lunch at 1:30 and took my next pill at 2:30. I went to bed at 11pm, and it took me about an hour to fall asleep. I then was restless all night long. I woke to my kidneys hurting, but I decided to take another pill this morning. Yesterday, I definitely felt the jitters, and like I wanted to jump out of my skin. Today, not as much, but again my kidneys are achey? I only need to lose about 15-20lbs. I am 5 feet and weigh about 135. I would like to be high school skinny, but not real sure if I can take the achey kidneys for much longer. Anyone else have that same side effect? I ordered them about 2.5 weeks ago, but just started taking them, so not sure if I should return them for a refund or keep trying to take them. I would like some positive feedback as well from others who have used this supplement for weight loss. Thank you!

Lost 30 lbs with Healthe Trim. If you are having side effects cut down to one pill in the morning. Drink lots of water too. Love this product

brian jones

These guys are professional CON artists!!! They will take your money and the product does NOT work!!!! Stay far,far away!! Bought 2 bottles at a discounted price to see if it worked. Nowhere did it say on the offer that we were signing up for recurring charges. 3 months later they take $100 out of our checking acct. We called and they were very rude and said they would only refund us half the money! Tough!!!!

Heather Abel

I have been on Healthe Trim with Raspberry Ketone for a couple of weeks now. I also work out and have been eating very healthy. Somehow, I feel like I am retaining tons of water and so I did a little online research. I am getting off this stupid PILL immediately. Terrible product.

Christina

Don’t take if you have caffeine sensitivity at all. Cost me a trip to emergency room after taking high school skinny.

Heather

I have been on healthe trim since monday and my feelings have not changed. I feel like my body is going to jump out of my body, I feel so sick to my stomach. So I came online to see maybe there is something I can do to help all this go away. I drink nothing but water and I only take 1 pill in the morning. I really don’t mind the body jumping out cause I work out and that goes away. But this me feeling sick I can’t do. I work with clients and I can’t be feeling sick like this. Does anyone have anything else that I could do? I drink nothing but water and I do it healthy foods also. Please help me everyone or anyone.

lisa

I took it for a couple weeks and ended up with heart palpatations and PVC’s. I had to get all these tests run and change my meds up. They said it was this product…just be cautious

Ellie

Thank you. The palpatations were my main concern. I will not use this product.

Anonymous

All i have to say about this product is I LOVE IT! Ive been taking it for about 3 months now, yes it gives you jitters when you first start using it, as the directions say if it does that to you start off with 1 pill a day, i did that and i continue to take it that way (1 pill in the morning and 1 around 2) I love the energy it gives me, i didnt notice the weight loss IMMEDIATELY but no complaints here, it DOES TAKE TIME! As it says “Individual weight loss may vary” I work out twice day and notice that it helps me tremendously! I DO notice weight loss and will definitely continue with the product, i LOVE that it keeps me away from all the bad sugars because YES i am a soda-holic! I totally gave the soda up and love the consumption of more water, its whats best!! I love the product and i will continue with it, it takes time to get used to it smile

oreo

Did it make you dizzy? Im on my second day and feel really weird is that normal?

Kelly

Don’t order this crap! It doesn’t work. Good ol diet and exercise is what is needed, not this.. there is no magic pill.

Additionally, if you order this product, they set you up on auto pay. If you fail to cancel your auto pay, because you forgot about it like I did, they will not refund your money! Here’s the deal. Auto pay hits my account, I contact them immediately. I finally talk to someone once the product arrives so I can ship it back, and was given instructions on how to return the product. The charge on my account was $91. I got an email today refunding me $27. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kelly

I have been itching alot and not sure if it is the pills. I have been on this for one day. I took one in the morning and one in the afternoon. In the evening I started itching and could not sleep because of it. Still this morning I am itching. Is anyone having the same issue?

Maria

i have been using this for a while & it works great. my energy is up, im less hungry & all that good stuff! my stomach never hurts or anything! if you follow all the directions, youll get what’s promised. go on to healthytrimcoach.com and it tells you everything you need to know. drink plenty of water & READ THE DIRECTIONS!!!!!!!!

chrissy

Dont order this craps it will kill you

Ione

Thinking about ordering HT, but thought I’d check out reviews.How in the world could anyone go ahead and order after reading all the negative reviews?? If any products affect your body in a negative way they should not be taken. My body is the temple of God, and I will try to refrain from harming it. I guess if I want to lose a few pounds, I best start exercising more and eating better. I wonder why most every diet pill comes with the instruction that include “proper diet & exercise”. This is most likely the way dieter’s lose their weight anyway.

Anonymous

Your body is a temple of God and you won’t harm it…yet, somehow you have managed to inhale enough food to harm your body with the effects of obesity to the point of you researching quick fixes and diet pills. Your body is far from a temple of God and you, my friend, are a hypocrite. Put down the food and visit a gym with your God given temple.

jen

i’ve been taking this product for a few days and i started out taking one in the morning and one in the evening. i don’t attempt to increase the amount because it makes be so sick and jittery. I feel really hungry on the product but when i try to eat something my stomach starts to hurt really bad. All im drinking is water. I don’t reccomend this product. I’m gonna try to get a refund.

Kami Jensen

This is a terrible product. I gained 7 pounds in 2 weeks with following the directions, talking to one of their “ha ha” diet coaches and excercising one hour daily. The worst part of this product is that the diet coaches encourage you to stay with it so you make it past the 30 day guarentee and they don’t have to give you your money back. This product does not work and I had the same problems with my liver and kidneys that others have had on it.
