Many weight loss supplements contain ingredients that are synthesized in a lab. Some of these synthetic derivatives can be harmful to the liver and kidneys. Many people remember when the original formulation of Hydroxycut was pulled from the shelves after several people suffered serious liver injuries, jaundice, and elevated liver enzymes.
Healthe Trim ingredients are claimed to be natural and pharmaceutical grade. A close examination of the 15 plus Healthe Trim ingredients shows that it is free of dangerous substances, Healthe Trim’s ingredients include herbs, green tea, and fruit and berry extracts that act synergistically to boost metabolism and increase energy.
So, what exactly are the ingredients in Healthe Trim and how do they work to promote weight loss? The Healthe Trim website lists five “essential ingredients” and a number of other compounds.
Healthe Trim Ingredients
The main ingredient is Hoodia gordonii, a natural appetite suppressant. It is made from a flowering cactus that is indigenous to Southern Africa. Long known to eliminate feelings of hunger, African bushmen ate the cacti to keep from feeling hungry on long trips through the Kalahari Desert. The specific active compound that exerts these anti-hunger effects was isolated in 1977.
Green tea leaf extract is rich in polyphenols and purportedly increases thermogenesis (fat-burning) and fat oxidation. It also contains Caralluma fimbriata, another plant that prevents cravings or hunger pains. Both of these natural plants have been consumer in South Africa and India for hundreds of years.
Another important Healthe Trim ingredient is Resveratrol, which has been getting a lot of press in the last 5 years. It’s one of the reasons doctors recommend red wine: red grape skins contain small amounts of resveratrol. There are numerous scientific studied suggesting that this flavonoid, which is naturally found in red grape skins, has potent anti-aging properties. It has been lab-tested as a compound to prevent disease ranging from cancer to Alzheimer’s, and resveratrol is known to increase cellular energy production.
The fifth key ingredient is coix seed. Also known as Job’s Tears, this plant is rich in fiber and is purported to lower cholesterol.
Healthe Trim also contains several other ingredients that boost metabolism and energy. These include:
Poria Cocos: a medicinal mushroom used in traditional Chinese medicine
Cassia Seed: a popular addition to Chinese teas
Lotus Leaf: a traditional Chinese compound used to ‘invigorate’ the blood
Water Plantain: useful for boosting fat loss
Cumquat: a citrus fruit high in vitamins
