Ultimate Trim Review - Does This Fat Burner Really Work?
Diet products either work or they don’t. Period. Let’s find out which one Ultimate Trim is. We at DietSpotlight wrote one of our detailed reviews, scrutinizing the ingredients, side effects, clinical research and level of customer service. We additionally read hundreds of user comments from all over the internet. At last, we summed up all of the data we collected to give you the information you actually need.
What is Ultimate Trim?
To start with, Ultimate Trim is touted as an over-the-counter weight-loss supplement and fat burner. It basically contains cayenne, b vitamins, ATP disodium, green tea leaf, theobromine, caralluma fimbriata and rhodiola rosea extract. This diet product is supposed to help boost metabolism, suppress appetite, increase energy levels and elevate mood. Both diet and exercise are encouraged with this product in order to see optimum results. You need to take this capsule formula daily with water.
The maker of Ultimate Trim capsules is Organica Research, LLC. This company is located in Oakton, VA. This supplement is stated to be free of caffeine. Also, it does provide some antioxidants to help ward off damaging free radicals, but read on…
Fad Ingredients in Ultimate Trim – “Concerning?”
The first concern we have is with Ultimate Trim ingredients. According to our Research Editor, “This supplement contains fad diet substances such as cayenne and caralluma fimbriata, which have not been proven to aid with weight-loss at all.”
One customer reported, “I’ve used the entire bottle. Nothing. No weight-loss at all.”
However, a different user said, “Maybe increases energy a bit. Not sure about reducing appetite.”
“Not my favorite. I have tried other green tea diet supplements that work. This stuff is just okay,” posted another.
Lack of Availability – “Another Issue”
Another issue is lack of availability. It appears that this diet product has been taken off of the market. For instance, one customer stated, “Ultimate Trim is gone. Must have been discontinued. Can’t find it anywhere online.”
Then again, a different user said, “Bought these a few years back. They do increase my energy.”
Another posted, “Had some Ultimate Trim side effects from this. Made my stomach hurt and felt nauseated for hours.”
According to our research, if there is a certain facet of a diet supplement or weight-loss program that’s very bothersome or concerning (fad supplement ingredients, lack of availability, side effects) the probability of long-term success is rather low. Therefore if Ultimate Trim is in fact impossible to purchase at this point, this is a serious dilemma.
The Science – “Any?”
To begin, Ultimate Trim does contain some green tea. This ingredient has been shown to boost metabolism and improve fat loss. However, this supplement also contains fad diet components that have not been linked to weight-loss. At DietSpotlight, we prefer to see some actual science or research that supports the product we’re reviewing.
The Bottom Line – Does Ultimate Trim Work?
So, should you pull out your credit card and order a bottle of Ultimate Trim? Well, we like that this diet formula does not require a prescription and it’s easy to use/take anywhere. On the other hand, we have some reservations about this weight-loss product because it’s not backed by any solid science. Moreover, we’re concerned about its lack of availability.
If you’d like to drop more weight, then we encourage you to find a product that is backed by solid clinical research, is easy to purchase online and gives you plenty of bang for your buck.
Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Leptigen. This supplement contains a combination of four ingredients, which have been shown in documented clinical research to help increase fat loss and kick-start metabolism. At this point, we have not discovered any customer complaints, and user remarks posted online reveal people are seeing wonderful results.
The makers of Leptigen are so positive about their product they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is uncommon.

Ultimate Trim - 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.
Advantages of Ultimate Trim
- All ingredients are listed on the Ultimate Trim website.
- Some ingredients are proven.
- Clinical studies listed in the product description.
Disadvantages of Ultimate Trim
- 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.
