TrimSpa's® dietary supplement products are formulated to accommodate different weight loss needs. For best weight loss results, TrimSpa® recommends using their dietary supplements in addition to a healthy eating plan and exercise program.
The TrimSpa® product line includes Trimspa Ultra®, Trimspa Energy® and Trimspa X32®, which contain the botanical appetite suppressant Hoodia gordonii. Trimspa Metabospa® is a non-Hoodia based weight loss supplement, formulated to promote thermogenesis and increase the metabolism. TrimSpa® has conducted clinical studies of their weight loss products.
Hoodia gordonii extract isn't a diet stimulant, like Ephedra or Phenfen. Instead, hoodia sends a signal to the satiety center of the brain that the body is not hungry. A placebo-controlled, double-blind study showed that subjects who were administered Trimspa Ultra® had an average weight loss of 2.2 pounds in 4 weeks.
Trimspa Metabospa® contains Metabonex®, a patented ingredient that includes the adrenal hormone DHEA (3-acetyl-7-oxo-dehydroepiandrosterone). "As people age, 7-oxo- DHEA levels decrease, as does the body's metabolic rate," states the manufacturers, in their website. "The U.S. patented ingredient, Metabonex®, increases these levels and induces thermogenic enzymes at multiple levels to promote caloric efficiency."
In a placebo-controlled, double-blind study, 23 subjects were administered either Trimspa Metabospa® or a placebo, along with a controlled daily diet (1800 calories) and exercise plan (60 minutes of cross training) over an 8 week period. Findings revealed that the Metabospa participants lost 6.3 pounds as compared to 2.1 pounds for the placebo group.
TrimSpa® recommends that you consult with your physician prior to using their products. They also recommend that their products not be used by women who are pregnant or nursing.
