CoffeeTrim is a diet pill manufactured in the USA by Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals. It’s produced in capsule format and unitizes a standardized green coffee bean extract that’s been “independently tested for purity and strength to deliver the highest quality”. It’s also supposedly “almost caffeine free”.
Green coffee bean extract is a popular ingredient that can be found in many diet pill formulations and is often used as a standalone weight loss provider.
Most of the major diet pill manufacturers have a diet pill that’s powered exclusively by green coffee bean extract, so CoffeeTrim has a lot of competition and is not in any way a unique product.
Apart from the name on the label, the only difference between most of these products is likely to be the price.
CoffeeTrim is at the lower end of the scale as far as price goes but, at the time of this review, there were no customer reviews and no money back guarantee.
Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals was founded in 1979, so the company has been around for a number of decades, but it has a history of run-ins with the FDA, and two of their products, Fastine and Lipodrene contained an ingredient that was not approved as a food additive or sanctioned for use in dietary supplements. The FDA issued a warning letter about this in April 2015.
CoffeeTrim Alleged Benefits
- Inhibits the release of glucose
- Boosts the metabolism
- Manages weight naturally without stimulants
The only active ingredient is green coffee bean extract each capsule provides 400mg, so each (2 capsule) dose will deliver 800mg. The extract Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals has opted to use provides 50% chlorogenic acid. This is in keeping with the majority of products of this nature.
Chlorogenic acid is a fat burning chemical that can be found in all coffee beans when they are in their natural state (green).
The roasting process coffee manufacturers use to darken the bean and enrich the flavour causes most of the chlorogenic acid in coffee to be lost. This is the reason why green coffee bean extract is considered a big gun in the dieting world and ordinary (roasted) beans are not.
Although the potential of the ingredient was largely ignored for a great many years, it’s popularity grew almost overnight after it received a favorable mention on a TV show hosted by the American weight loss expert, Dr Oz.
Thanks to his intervention, Green coffee bean extract has become one of the most popular diet pill ingredients in the world, but it does not offer a good enough range of benefits to be used as a standalone ingredient.
Chlorogenic acid, is primarily a fat burner, and it also helps keep blood sugar levels under control, but it does not offer appetite suppression, so anyone taking CoffeeTrim may still overeat and/or have to fight the hunger pangs that are arguably one of the worst things about dieting.
No customer testimonials were available at the time of this review.
CoffeeTrim Potential Side Effects
Green coffee bean extract is usually well tolerated by the majority of users, but it does contain a small amount of caffeine and this may make CoffeeTrim a poor option for people who do not tolerate stimulants well.
As with any other dietary supplement, CoffeeTrim will not be a suitable for women who are pregnant or nursing a child.
Anyone who has existing health issues, or is planning to use the supplement alongside medication, is advised to seek their doctor’s approval prior to commencing supplementation.
The Cost Per Bottle
Dieters who hope to lose weight faster by using CoffeeTrim have two options. They can either buy directly from the Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals website or choose to purchase via a third-party supplier, such as Suppz.com and Best Price Nutrition. There is a big difference in the price though.
Customers who buy directly from the manufacturer can expect to pay $29.99 for a 30-day supply of pills. A lot of third-party suppliers charge around $15.
There does not appear to be a money back guarantee.
Like all diet pills, CoffeeTrim will only work if it’s used in conjunction with a low calorie diet, so people using the product will need to cut down on their food.
This will no doubt cause hunger pangs, but the pills do not contain any strong appetite suppressing ingredients to keep food cravings under control, so people using the product will either have to grin and bear it every time hunger strikes, or use a separate appetite suppressing product.
Most good diet pills boost the metabolism and encourage fat burning, while also controlling hunger.
Unless they are blessed with incredible will power and mental fortitude, the majority of dieters will need this extra help and CoffeeTrim cannot provide it, so it’s never going to be one of the best pills on the market.
