Why are people talking about ReFirm? We decided to put the spotlight on the ingredients, side effects, scientific research and customer service quality. Additionally, we examined hundreds of user comments and forum posts. Then, we condensed and summarized to give you the info you need.

ReFirm Readers: Click here to find out why we're giving away samples of our product, Dietspotlight Burn.

What is ReFirm?

Firstly, ReFirm is a weight-loss line offering three options to help you reach your goals, including quick results, long-term and complete success. The ingredients are caffeine, green coffee bean, garcinia cambogia, yerba mate, PEA, n-acetyl-l-tyrosine, raspberry ketones, white kidney bean, cayenne pepper, green tea, guarana, wakame, hawthorn berry, cocoa bean, holy basil, coenzyme Q10, vanadyl sulfate and vitamins. [1] [2] [3]When taken daily, the products supposedly boost metabolism, suppress appetite and increase energy.

ReFirm was released by Complete Nutrition sometime after 2004. The official website and trusted retailers sell the supplement line. We like the longevity of the company and that it contains a few natural ingredients, but read on…

ReFirm Side Effects – “Not Good!”

Our first issue relates to ReFirm side effects. “In the supplement market you will find products that contain stimulants,” said our Research Editor. “While they may boost metabolism, there’s also a chance dieters could experience adverse reactions.”

“Today is my first day and I am not liking the jitteriness,” stated a user.

“Have experienced the jitters, headache, & continuous weird aftertaste,” commented another. [4]

According to other ReFirm reviews, side effects aren’t always present. “Good clean energy and no nagging side effects,” reported a customer.

Lack of Results – “Just Not Effective”

Based on user comments, ReFirm ingredients didn’t always help them lose weight. “I have been following all directions and watching my diet closely…I have not lost even 1 lb,” stated a dieter.

“I’ve been on ReFirm for 3 weeks. With a healthy diet and exercising three times a week. I have lost 0 lbs.,” said a customer.

While some users didn’t see results, other reviews of ReFirm talked about their weight-loss.

“I began taking ReFirm as a part of a weight loss supplement regimen and I have noticed a boost in energy, libido and the inches are coming off,” stated a customer.

“It does give me the extra little, I mean tiny, zing to get going and have my body get back to where it has been,” reported another.

Throughout our research, we’ve found that when lack of results is an issue with a supplement, the chances of long-term success are limited. There’s a concern if you use ReFirm and don’t lose weight.

The Science Behind ReFirm- “Validated?”

While there are details relating to ReFirm ingredients, there’s no scientific research showing the connection between the formulas and weight-loss. There’s solid science backing green tea and caffeine, but there’s also studies showing PEA is linked to negative side effects. [5] Also, raspberry ketones is often considered a fad with no clinical backing. DietSpotlight prides itself on using science to give supplements a fair shake. If there’s nothing there, we raise the red flag.

The Bottom Line – Does ReFirm Work?

So, what’s our final take on this one? Well, we like that Complete Nutrition has been in the business for 11 years and some of the ReFirm ingredients are natural, but we’re concerned that there’s no research supporting the weight-loss claims. Also, we’re a bit skeptical due to user comments about negative side effects and lack of results.

If it’s time to knock off that extra weight, we suggest going with a supplement formulated with clinically-tested ingredients with connection to harmful side effects and positive customer reviews.

Among the best supplements we’ve seen this year is one called Dietspotlight Burn. The formula contains four clinically-tested ingredients that have been shown to help jump start metabolism and fat loss. There’s no mention of harmful side effects, but there’s plenty of talk about dieters seeing great results.

Also, the makers of Dietspotlight Burn are so confident in their supplement, they’re offering a Special Trial Offer.

Previous ReFirm Review (Updated June 13, 2014):

What You Should Know about ReFirm

ReFirm is a weight loss supplement kit with AM, PM and Belly Fat Tablets. A similar set up to that of Plexus Triplex. All tablets are packaged in the same kit with instructions, so you know exactly which supplements to take during each day and night. There is a one-month supply in each box. We found the supplement listed on the Complete Nutrition website. The label reads that the supplement is manufactured exclusively for Complete Nutrition.

Product Features

As a dieter, you’re looking for a safe, effective supplement that works by increasing your metabolism and decreasing your hunger. Common among fat burners, like Xenitol or Perfect Garcinia Cambogia, we found these ingredients to be quite interesting. There are proven ingredients like green tea extract and caffeine that help increase metabolism, both of which are found in ReFirm, but we were unable to find an appetite suppressant. Typically, the best appetite suppressants help control blood glucose levels to curb carbohydrate cravings, like chromium. While we like the fact that a couple proven ingredients are found in ReFirm, we don’t like the fact that all ingredients are packaged in a proprietary blend. We have no idea how much caffeine or green tea is included and that’s just in the AM supplement. The PM supplement contains ingredients like Senna, Cascara Sagrada and Dandelion Leaf. The first two ingredients are stimulant laxatives and the last is a diuretic used to push water out of the body. These ingredients should NOT be used as part of a weight loss plan.

Advantages of ReFirm

  • Ingredients are listed on the official website.
  • Caffeine and green tea are proven to increase heart rate and possibly increase weight loss.

Disadvantages of ReFirm

  • There are no amounts for any of the ingredients.
  • The PM supplement contains stimulant laxatives and diuretics.

Conclusion

ReFirm is a three-pill weight loss supplement with an AM, PM and Belly Fat tablet. The active tablets, AM and Belly Fat, both contain stimulants and the PM supplement contains laxatives and diuretics. Supplements with no ingredient amounts are not safe for dieters because they have no idea how much caffeine or other stimulant ingredients they’re taking.

ReFirm is a anti-aging formula from Complete Nutrition. The label claims it's designed for women, but there are no ingredients that are specific to this gender. Interestingly, there is a "Metabolism Boosting Blend."

ReFirm Scientific Abstracts:

Vitamin B12

There is currently significant evidence showing a common reduction in serum and red blood cell folate, serum vitamin B12 as well as an elevation in plasma homocysteine in depression. Additionally, the MTHFR C677T polymorphism which hinders the homocysteine metabolism has been observed to be overrepresented within patients suffering from depression, which lends credence to the association. Based upon the data available, it was concluded that oral intake of folic acid and vitamin B12 (800 microg per day and 1mg per day, respectively) should be helpful in the treatment outcome of depression. [1]

Guggul Lipid Extract

Guggulsterone was found to upregulate the BSEP (bile salt export pump), which is an efflux transporter that is in charge of removing cholesterol metabolites, bile acids from the liver. This upregulation of the bile salt export pump expression by guggulsterone is observed to favor cholesterol metabolism into bile acids, and displays another mechanism for its hypolipidemic activity. Guggulsterone was noticed to have powerful inhibition activities on nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB), which is a crucial moderator of inflammatory responses. This inhibition by guggulsterone has been seen as an effective anti-inflammatory. [2]

Cinnamon

The study concluded by pointing out that consumption of 1, 3, or 6 grams of cinnamon daily decreases serum glucose, LDL cholesterol, total cholesterol, and triglycerides in individuals with type 2 diabetes. This data indicates that the inclusion of cinnamon in a diet for those with type 2 diabetes will decrease risks liked with diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. [3]

Ginger

Ginger contains well-documented anti-cancer properties and its constituents such as ginerols, paradols and shogal are proven to be valuable ingredients known to prevent an array of different cancers. This review concluded that ginger has helpful properties, but more detailed trials and further research is needed in order to determine efficacy. [4]

White Button Mushroom

Following the 1 year long trial period, subjects who were on the mushroom diet (n=36) suggested decreased intakes of fat (- 4.25±6.88g) and energy (mean±[SE] = -123±113 kcals), experienced greater body weight-loss by pounds and percentage (-7.03±3.34 pounds, 3.6%), experienced lower percent total body fat (-0.85±0.53), and waist circumference (-2.6±3.5 inches). In addition to this, subjects experienced lower diastolic and systolic pressure (-7.9 and -2.5 mm Hg). Lipid profiles as well as inflammatory markers improved as well. Following weight-loss at the start, subjects on the mushroom diet maintained said weight. The participants who finished the entire 12 month trial continued to weigh a mean of 7 pounds less than baseline. The results should encourage adults to consume mushrooms instead of red meat as an effective approach to improve weight-loss, maintenance, and health parameters. [5]

I bought the ReFirm NOW program 3 weeks ago and so far I’m very satisfied I feel way more energized and focused, my appetite is controlled and most importantly the night formula helps me sleep It’s not s pill like the older ReFirm and the success coach at the store was very educated and personable. I have already lost 8lbs I would recommend ReFirm to anyone trying to lose weight

sally

Wondering what diet I should follow to truly lose the weight

Cameron (Editor)

Well, Sally, a low calorie, low fat diet will greatly improve your chances of weight loss. The product doesn’t recommend a particular diet to follow.

  Everything is perfect for this product
Stacey Merriweather (Verified User)

I visited Complete nutrition for the first time. The clerk(Justin) has been there for 2years. He was very knowledgeable about & confident about their products. He even gave me samples on everyone inquired about. So I’m trying the chocolean chews , the pm by refirm , the craving block & the reclaim smart smoothie. The chews started out working well. I had no appetite from 6:30p until I went to bed. I don’t wanna mix the products BC I want to know what’s going to work. I’ll take it from there on whether I’ll actually purchase anything. Sorry to hear a lot of ppl has waisted their money. GET SAMPLES folks. Read Read Read reviews. You have to remember they want your $. Diet fads are notorious for ineffective products. What’s the hurry? Do your homework. The Internet is packed w/info. Research the ingredients in this stuff! Nobody has $ to waste especially w/ no results. I have a weeks worth of samples, that is enough time for me to know if the product works & if not I’ve lost NOTHING!

Which one did u decide on? I was thinking of getting refirm.

   I 'm a regular coffee drinker
Edward (Verified User)

I used their products prior to my wedding to lose a little weight, but anything they make that has caffeine in it really must have a lot. I ‘m a regular coffee drinker and even giving up the coffee, I can still feel the effects 13 hours later after taking them and they keep me up at night (again that is taking the pills at 11 am and going to be at midnight)

   waste of money.
Bj (Verified User)

I bought refirm the whole complete system plus the 30 days of vitamins its been 2 weeks have not lost 1 single pound. I work out 5 days a week and eat very healthy only wanted to tone and lose 10 lbs. it is not working for me at all. I spent 240.00 it is a waste of money.

   extra bottle
Felicia

I got the whole kit, the cleanse, the extra bottle of tone pills & the protein powder..enough for complete 60 days worth.. bought it on sale for a whopping $210… I lost 8lbs on the 10day cleanse alone. Started the refirm am, after lunch & pm stuff yesterday… excited to see what happens next 🙂 no negative effects yet. No nausea or jitters. It has curbed my appetite & it makes unhealthy foodlike hamburger helper taste bland so I don’t want it after I taste it.. been eating protein & veggies & workin out 3 times a week mostly running…

  It's supposed to "cleanse"
Sarah Sheehan

I thought the price was way high. I’ve had problems taking the cleanse. It’s supposed to “cleanse” you before the Refirm but I actually stopped going for 3 days when I started it. Having trouble just finishing that. Is the pack of Refirm returnable if not opened?

Patty

I bought the refirm program and I took it the first day and felt fine. The second day and on for the next 4 or 5 days it made me feel weird all day. Jitters. Foggy mind. Headache. Bad mood. Ect. I stopped taking it. It did nothing for me but made me feel like crap. It cost me $120 and that was a huge waste of money. It sits in a drawer. I’d like to take it to boost a little weight and fat loss but it’s not worth the way it made me feel. Wish I could get my money back but they won’t. I don’t recommend this product

rachel

i bought the refirm am enhanced bc i heard on the radio about the scientifically proven weight loss. ive tried every pill out there, i really liked oxyelite pro, but they took that off the market. the ingredients look great, green coffee, garcinia cambogia, rasberry ketones, white kidney bean etc, all have been promoted on the dr. oz show 🙂 i have been trying to lose this last 10 lbs for months, so i will keep you updated weekly. it is frustrating that i cant find any info on the studies or success stories online about it.

  I started Refirm recently.
amanda (Verified User)

I started refirm am pill Monday January 20th 2014 n pm drops I find myself very hungry even after eating so idk must be doing something not curving my appite tho ??? :/

Claire

It has been making me really hungry too!

Anonymous

I took the am in the evening and the sleep aid. My mouth got dry and my throat got sore. I woke up feeling go so I ate breakfast. I took the AM and went to work. I was barely at work for an hour I got the runs. Then, I started getting hot like I was having hot flashes. My head started hurting plus I threw up. I could not focus and was shaky. I feel I had a reaction. I thought maybe I took it wrong I called the 1800 number they could not explain it. I was told I could return it and to ask the people at the store if anyone else has had the same problem. I think it is bad that she had no explanation. I have heard the product works but be careful you might have the same reaction like I did.

  It is my 2nd day on Refirm.
Heather (Verified User)

Im on day two of Refirm Now and with a thermal genic you have to eat a good breakfast and lunch before you take your AM and Afternoon c
Supplements. It helps with the shakes and nausea so if your getting shaky try eating protein, I do a few boiled eggs. Having Raw fruits and Veges help too! Eat every 2-3 hours even if your not hungry. Make a yummy pot of soup, tuna salad etc! Plus don’t forget your water with lemon! Good luck

Cathy

I took an am pill and I’m still shaky….it’s over 12 hrs later !!!

Amanda

I started out with jitters as well. The biggest thing with this is you have to eat even if you aren’t hungry! The more calories your body is burning also means more to eat. Otherwise your getting side effects and still not burning fat only storing it!

amanda

I’m on day four n I find myself very hungry like cant get enough to eat help lol yikes my stomach won’t stop growling

  I'm still very sire and this product is making me urinate even mire. Any comments please...advice?
pam (Verified User)

Question: bought this prior to bladder suspension surgery. It’s been 5 days and thought I could start in it. But now I’m concerned about the ingredients causing a reverse action on my surgery…pretty much had complete pelvic reconstruction. I’m still very sire and this product is making me urinate even mire. Worried ESP about the PM laxative and diuretic. I didn’t consult my urologist. Any comments please…advice?

James

My wife is taking it natural laxitive it won’t have you on the toilet constantly it
will clean you out though

  It works for me.
laken (Verified User)

Honest to God, works! I have been having a terrible time losing weight. My poppies girlfriend bought this kit but she didn’t like them so they were passed down to me. I’ve been taking them for a week straight and am dropping pounds daily! Lower the price.. and you have me for life. I’m going to be sad when they’re all gone because I can’t afford more.. but I plan on starting plexus when that happens. If you got the dough.. do it!!!

I really like refirm. Tomorrow will be day 7. I haven’t weighed myself in a week. I’m eating a proper diet. Working out everyday. Hopefully I have shed a few pounds

Jeanele

After I went through the 1st month I lost 13 lbs but the second month there was no reduction in my weight. I think I spent a lot of money for nothing.

  If refirm could cause sever stomach cramps?
tammy grantff (Verified User)

want to know if refirm could cause sever stomach cramps.started yesterday was up most of night with stomach problems or could i just got stomach bug.

michael

i work at complete nutrition and if you are getting stomach cramps its from the antioxidants we have a new refirm with less you should be able to trade it in for new one

  it doesn't cost anything to lose weight unless you try to cheat!
Brenda (Verified User)

I just started the refirm product to help me lose my last 25-30 pounds a little faster. Even on sale I spent over $170! The AM pills knock me over, they must have a ton of caffeine in them. I take them after breakfast and I zoom for hours. They make me feel out of control even. My hands shake and I start sweating and my heart feels like it is racing. That is why I started looking on the internet for comments about the product and found this site. I have to admit I didn’t do much research before buying and the rep. at the store never mentioned the diuretic or the stimulant laxative and never mentioned what would happen when you took them. So THAT was a big surprise on the first morning, the afternoon and the evening. After reading this article I am a little nervouse about continuing to take the product. I was doing well on my diet without any suppliments but I had started to slip some and hoped this would help instead of working out even more and eating less. I can’t handle the AM pills and I am not liking the laxative and water pill part either. I already drink a lot of water and I am now going to the bathroom every 5 minutes and super thirsty. I did lose 5 pounds in the first 4 days but that has scared me more than anything because it is too much too quickly. The other pills that they sold me called TONE, are just like the fish-oil pills that I take for my cholesterol anyway. Just goes to prove that it doesn’t cost anything to lose weight unless you try to cheat!

Melinda

I spoke to a rep he informed me there are two AM pills one the equal of two cups of coffee and the other 5 or 6 cups. I was going for the 5 or 6 cups of coffe, he told me the 2 cups of coffee is the one for me. He also said if I didnt feel anything I can come in and trade it in at no cost for the other one. It sounds like you started with the 5 to 6 cups of coffee AM pill. Do you normally drink that much of caffiene a day?

ann

with diuretics you need to eat high in potassium if not no telling what might happen. I take the a.m and it doesnt make me feel like that. it makes me feel full and not hungry. I dont eat as much as I did.

Carol

I am right there with the Brenda. The morning pill zooms me to the point that I can’t focus….the rest of it I am doing ok with. I think I am going to take the package back and get non stimulate support.

  IT WORKS !!!
Joe (Verified User)

This actually does work! Ive seen results!
