Trim-Maxx Review - 6 Things You Need to Know


Don’t laugh, but well over 50% of diet products simply don’t work. So what about Trim-Maxx? There’s been a great deal of talk about these products, so we took the time to write a thorough review, examining the ingredients, side effects, customer care and scientific research. Furthermore, we scrutinized all sorts of dieter comments from the internet. Finally, we summed up all the facts and details in order to give you the info you need.

What is Trim-Maxx?

To begin with, Trim-Maxx is a line of herbals from Body Breakthrough, Inc. This company focuses on supplements for diet, antioxidant protection and aphrodisiac purposes. [1] [2] As for the ingredients used, they include locust plant, gynostemma, lyccii berry leaf, lemon, Chinese white ginseng, cranberry, orange peel, hibiscus flower, Chromemate and Citrimax. Trim-Maxx is available in several pill and tea formulas. These products claim to help with internal cleansing, fat loss, increasing energy levels and reducing retained water weight, when taken daily. The cost is $7.99 to $12.99. [3]

Trim-Maxx has been around since 2010. These products are available on dealer websites like Amazon. The formulas do not contain any chemicals, a great sign. Since certain natural ingredients are used in Trim-Maxx, some antioxidants are provided as well, but read on…

Lack of Results – “A Problem?”

Our first issue with Trim-Maxx ingredients was that there were few reports of results. According to our Research Editor, “There is no documented science presented to support the weight-loss claims regarding Trim-Maxx herbal teas and supplements. That means customers may not see what they expect.” [4]

According to one dieter, “Trim – Maxx does not work at all in my opinion. I would not recommend this product to anyone.”

“Just another junk product on the internet, the whole thing is a scam they hook you with the free samples,” said another customer.

Customer Complaints – “Uh Oh”

After reading through plenty of user reviews for Trim-Maxx products, it’s clear that a lot of customers are not happy. In fact, one user said, “What a complete disappointment!”

Another complained, “I bought this in hopes of losing weight and lost nothing. It didn’t seem to do much of anything for me, except have me go to the bathroom.”

Through our extensive research, we have concluded that if there is a certain aspect of a weight-loss supplement or diet system that is very burdensome (lack of clinical studies, numerous customer complaints, unpleasant taste) the probability of real results for the long term is quite low. Therefore if Trim-Maxx leads to a lot of negative issues, this could prove to be a serious problem.

The Science Behind Trim-Maxx – “Backing?”

There is no actual science presented to back Trim-Maxx and its weight-loss claims. While these products all appear to be “herbal supplements,” this does not mean they’re actually effective. Here at DietSpotlight, we need to see documentation of clinical results or we cannot give our support. [5]

What Users Are Saying

“Very good tea. At first I wasn’t sure about it but after I drank it.. Really makes you feel cleaner inside. Makes you feel less bloated, especially if you just ate junk earlier in the day etc.”

“I really like the product. I just think that it’s a little bit expensive.”

“It’s alright”

The Bottom Line – Does Trim-Maxx Work?

Well now, what do we have to say this time? While we appreciate that Trim-Maxx contains herbal ingredients and is free of chemicals, we do not feel comfortable recommending these teas and pills for weight management. After all, there is no real proof that these products actually work as claimed. Moreover, numerous customers have complained of no weight-loss effects at all. There are even user complaints of side effects.

If you need to lose excess body fat more quickly, we encourage you to go with a supplement that contains clinically proven ingredients, does not cause side effects and is supported by positive user reviews.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Burn HD. Its formula is a unique combination of four proven ingredients, which have been shown in documented clinical studies to help increase fat loss and elevate metabolism. We can’t locate any complaints of harmful side effects and user reviews posted online indicate people are seeing real results.

Also, we found that the makers of Burn HD, in a show of confidence, are offering a 2-Week Sample, which is a good sign.

What You Should Know About Trim-Maxx

Trim-Maxx is a diet pill; it is laxative-based and meant for cleansing and weight loss. It is also available as tea bags, a popular alternative to taking a pill. The pills and tea were developed and are sold by Body Breakthrough, Inc. Neither the company nor the product has its own website, but it can be bought on many other sites, including general sites like amazon.com and dieting, nutrition, or vitamin sites.

List of Ingredients in Trim-Maxx

Trim-Maxx is composed of Locust Plant (cassia angustifolia, also known as Senna), Gynostemma (pentaphyllum), Lyccii Berry Leaf, and cinnamon.

Product Features

Trim-Maxx is a natural product, made from natural ingredients. It contains no chemicals or caffeine. It is meant to cleanse your body of toxins and help get rid of gas pockets. The product is made with cinnamon, which gives it an appealing flavor. This is why many users prefer the tea bags to the pill, because it is an enjoyable way to take the product. The tea can be sweetened to the user's taste, or drunk as iced tea, with the same effect. It is recommended that you drink one cup daily before bedtime. The tea has no calories, fats, carbohydrates, or proteins; it does contain 5 mg of sodium. When you first start using Trim-Maxx, you should begin with smaller, diluted doses. The laxative effect may take some time for your body to adjust to, so you should not start out too fast. Starting too fast may lead to abdominal cramping. Over time, you can increase the strength of the doses and thus increase the desired effect. Senna, the laxative ingredient, may not be for everyone. If you have stomach pains, diarrhea, or loose stools, you should discontinue use and call a doctor if symptoms continue. Check with a doctor before use if you have a medical condition, are pregnant, are nursing, or are taking any medications. Trim-Maxx Plus is also available; it is the same tea with anti-oxidants added. It comes in a lemon flavor as well as the original cinnamon.

Advantages of Trim-Maxx

  • Users like the cinnamon flavor.
  • Price is ok; about $11.50 for 70 bags online.
  • Easy to use.

Disadvantages of Trim-Maxx

  • Has a lack of before/after photos.
  • Has no money-back guarantee.
  • Has no free gift with purchase.
  • Does not highlight the importance of healthy diet and regular exercise.
  • The laxative effect can be uncomfortable and inconvenient, requiring you to be near a bathroom for several hours and/or causing abdominal cramping.

Trim-Maxx Conclusion

Trim-Maxx does not stand out as being different from other laxative products. The laxative effect may help lose weight but can cause discomfort, especially early on, and is not always the most healthy way to drop pounds. This is an herbal-weight loss supplement, but it is not thermogenic.

  • Safe to use pregnancy Products

    I love this product. Is it safe to use it during pregnancy?

    • Dana, RN

      Laxative use is not recommended during pregnancy as the contractions it causes in the colon, may also cause uterine contractions, which may put you into labor. My best advice would be for you to check with the Doctor before you take anything while you are pregnant. Hope this helps!

    Is working perfectly 4 me. But you if u continue eating a lot, you wouldn’t loss nothing. And you need to walk or any exercise. This not magical!!!.

  • Britt

    The fact that your review says Trim MAXX been around since 2010 is inaccurate. I brought Trim-Maxx from a Korean grocery store.in ’99 & used it off & on for 6 Yrs, now I’m regretting that I stopped because Hydroxy Cut didn’t do anything but blow my stomach up, then I broke out in hives which took a mth to go away. When I started using Trm-Maxx there was 2 flavors & strength, regular & maximum strength. The maximum strength.is a berry flavor, that came in a purple box @ the x..I have been using off & on since 1999., like all natural dieters tea, it’s use is to supplement your diet, not as you make changes.

  • Das

    I love trimmed tea a good clenser

  • maximus

    This product I’ve started using a couple of says now,its really potent with its toilet factor…Its exactly what I need for my early morning call to cleanse my body to start my day….I didn’t get the diet plan and would really like to .. Thanks

  •  Helped in CONSTIPATION !
    Anthony (Verified User)

    I am anaemic. With anaemia there is severe constipation. I use trim maxx daily and it works. I am no longer a sufferer of constipation. As for weight loss you need to control your diet.

  •  This is bad business and I want my money put back into my account.

    I ordered trim max on Nov.1,2013 n I received an email stating my order has been mailed. Today is Nov. 7,2013 an I have not received my order. I called USPS and they told me that the people at trim max did not bring them the package to delivery. I have called all day and evening and left messages no one has called me back. This is bad business and I want my money put back into my account.

  •   I love love love it.
    Diana (Verified User)

    I’ve used trim max tea for over two years and I love love love it. I have IBS and it’s worked better than Rx meds I was taking. I’ve stopped taking my meds and just drink the tea every night before I go to bed. With a balanced diet it also helps me to lose weight. If u just drink the tea and not change the way u eat then like every diet products it will not work. If u don’t put work into losing weight then u won’t get results. So don’t blame the product for your lack if trying.

  •  Best thing I ever tried
    Leslly (Verified User)

    i would not recommend this product to anyone

    • Your Name

      Too bad for you..this product really works

      • Thickey

        I’ve been using Trim – Maxx for the past few weeks and it really works for me. It’s a great cleanser and I feel great. You can’t expect to get results just by drinking the tea.. obviously you must change your diet and exercise.
