TrimSpa is commonly used for helping with weight loss. This weight-loss supplement is found in several different products, and each product contains a different blend of active ingredients (such as caffeine, glucomannan, hoodia, and green tea extract). It is not exactly known how the various TrimSpa products work, but it is known that many of the products contain stimulants (which can suppress the appetite and boost metabolism).
What Is TrimSpa Used For?TrimSpa® is a group of supplements used for weight loss. There are several different TrimSpa products available, and each product contains a different blend of active ingredients.
With obesity rates increasing (see Obesity Statistics), many people are searching for "quick fixes" for weight loss. Although an ideal weight-loss plan focuses on gradual weight loss by eating a healthy diet and increasing physical activity (see How to Lose Weight), many people have difficulty following such plans (or feel they need extra assistance in their efforts). Before turning to drastic measures, such as weight-loss surgery, many people consider using weight-loss pills, especially if they have unsuccessfully tried to control their obesity (and exercise and diet have been ineffective).
How Does TrimSpa Work?At one point, TrimSpa contained ephedra, although ephedra has since been banned due to safety concerns. Now, ephedra-free versions of TrimSpa contain many different active ingredients, such as caffeine, glucomannan, hoodia, and green tea extract. Each TrimSpa product has a different blend of several active ingredients. In general, it is not exactly known how (or if) most of these ingredients work, although some of these ingredients may work as stimulants. Stimulants work for weight loss by suppressing the appetite and increasing metabolism.
Most TrimSpa products contain hoodia, an ingredient that has been suggested to suppress the appetite (although this claim has not been supported by any reliable scientific evidence).
