Meratrim is a new weight loss product made of a proprietary blend that is believed to accelerate the fat shedding process in just a few weeks. Meratrim is a non-stimulant formula believed to give results just by taking 800 mg of it a day. The official website offering the product does support its claim by showcasing a clinical study showing people were able to lose a significant amount of weight within 8 weeks.
For effective loss in weight the user will have to commit to a maximum on 2,000 calorie diet a day and 30 minutes’ walk program for 5 days each week. If Meratrim does work as they claim, that would be excellent news. This is what we are going to find out in this review.
List of Ingredients
Meratrim is a weight loss formula made of a blend extracted from a fruit and a flower. The fruit extract involved in the formulation is called Garcinia mangostana and the flower is Sphaeranthus indicus.
In a double blind placebo controlled clinical study conducted in India, it was shown that within 8 weeks, participants that took the blend of Garcinia mangostana and Sphaeranthus indicus were able to lose an additional 8.3 pounds in comparison to the placebo group.
Other ingredients used in the blend are the vegetarian capsule (vegetable cellulose), silica, rice bran and microcrystalline cellulose.
The manufacturer of Meratrim also took the time to underline the fact that the product does not contain artificial coloring, starch, salt, sugar, egg or fish products, lactose, citrus, milk, yeast, wheat, soy or preservatives. Meratrim is suitable for vegetarian.
- Made of 2 important natural ingredients
- Clinical studies do show that it can really help lose weight
- Does not contain any artificial ingredients or anything with the potential of causing allergies
- Formulated to be vegetarian friendly
- The product is relatively expensive
- The manufacturer does not explain how exactly the different ingredients react to cause the loss in weight
- It is not clear whether it is the low calorie diet requirement or the supplement that is really causing the loss in weight
For best results it is imperative that the user reduce the amount of calorie intake. This may result in lower blood sugar and that may not be good news for the weight loss aspirant. Always check with a healthcare professional to find out if it is ok for you to be on a low-carb.
Also pregnant women and those nursing should avoid this product.
The big question about Meratrim is what proves that the weight loss is not due to the low-card diet rather. To be sure, maybe you should first start the low-carb diet without using the supplement. If you are able to get results then you might not need to buy the product. If the low-carb diet doesn’t get you significant results then you can go ahead and order the supplement to see if there is any improvement.
One thing to note here is that Meratrim is relatively expensive compared to other similar product. You might want to consider others first before trying this one.
