TrimSpa produces dietary supplements meant for weight loss, and they are marketed by a company called Goen Technologies, and manufactured by Abbott Laboratories. You may be thinking to yourself, “I know the name, ‘TrimSpa’ but how?” Well, Anna Nicole Smith used to be a rep for TrimSpa, which pushed their sales tremendously. Formerly, in their diet pills, ephedra was one of the ingredients, which is now banned in the United States as an unlawful substance to use in any diet products. This all happened in 2008, and the company ended up filing for bankruptcy protection and selling all of their assets, eventually leading to short term closure.* In 2013, under new owners, TrimSpa came out with a new product called “X32” and they claim no ephedra is present – in its place is Hoodia Gordonii.
The Ingredients in the X32 Diet pills: Chromium, Glucomannan, Cocoa Extract, Tyramine, Theobromine, Green Tea Extract, Epigallocatechin gallate, polyphenols, Hoodia Gordonii, Glucosamine HCI, Citrus Naringin, and Vanadium.
When looking to get ahold of the company via phone, I discovered they were only available via e-mail: [email protected]. To my surprise, they are not registered with the Better Business Bureau, and that strikes me as odd since coming back from their ingredient scandal.
Do Dieters Lose Weight On TrimSpa?
This diet has been in the limelight for many reasons, and they have not been all positives. The customers who purchased the “new and improved” diet supplement X32 from TrimSpa were sorely disappointed, as a large majority of them said it literally did nothing for their weight loss, energy, or appetite. Apparently the old formula was way better for weight loss, there was only one problem (illegal ingredients).*
“Doesn't really affect appetite at all. More like expensive low dose caffeine pills. Not at all like the original Trimspa, from 2003, I took in high school.(Anna Nicole was the spokesperson and the pills were red) I'm disappointed. The original formula made me feel full without even eating anything.” Cheri*
“Only one star because you have to put in an order to leave a review.This is with eating right and going to the gym. Only lost 2 1/2 pounds (which is no difference weight loss from before i took trimspa). Think I was better off before. Also instead of suppressing my hunger, I actually felt hungrier than before the pills. Definitely a waste! On my second bottle of trimspa (only because I had already bought it). Will definitely keep you informed.” Ty Pino*
Is TrimSpa’s X32 Easy To Follow?
This company is tricky, and you have to watch out for their auto ship program you will get enrolled in if you order from the website. Quote: “This amazing formula has been clinically demonstrated to improve weight loss results over diet and exercise alone. If you keep the product, you will pay just $59.95 for your trial, and then you'll receive your new supply of TRIMSPA® X32® for $59.95 plus $9.95 S&H every 30 days, and you can cancel at any time.” So as you can see, there is more that meets the eye than just taking the X32 diet pills each day. They are also rather expensive for the results people have not seen, so they might have thought they could make an extra dollar or two from people who forgot to cancel the auto ship or just didn’t know about it.
On the website, they talk about all of the scientific studies done in regards to revamping their formula, but they fail to show any studies on the website. How do we know these studies were actually done? Side effects from customers have been noted to be: insomnia, anxiety, jitters, and heart palpitations.
This diet pill X32 has seen better days, and so has TrimSpa. Anna Nicole Smith was a huge advocator for the product back in the day, but since the bust and reconstruction of the formula, the company just has not been able to recover like it could have. Many customers are just unhappy overall with how the product makes them feel, as well as the lack of weight loss that occurs when taking this product. The side effects are not something anyone would welcome, as well as the lack of scientific evidence to back up the new formulation and why it is supposed to work. With a meager 30-day money back guarantee, and untouched social media sites, the future is looking bleak for TrimSpa. With no posts since 2014, and not even 1,000 likes, this company has most definitely seen better days. I would not invest my time and money into this diet product when looking to lose weight, because the results just won’t come as expected. When shopping or simply looking for dietary changes in order to improve your health while losing some unwanted weight, look for a reputable company that has a good customer base to back up the claims.
