Zotrim is an over the counter diet supplement that is made up of a three ingredient formula that is designed to make weight loss faster and easier. These ingredients are all natural extracts, which the manufacturer markets as being a notable feature. There are a number of different claims made by the manufacturer regarding the types of effects that this product will have that will help with dieting.
The official Zotrim website lists a great deal of information to try to explain the ways in which it works, what it contains, and its purpose. The primary claims are that it is a metabolism booster, an appetite suppressant, and a fat burner. Essentially, it claims that a dieter will feel fuller faster and longer, while burning calories more effectively. To achieve this, the product would require an extremely powerful formula.
The ingredients that make up the Zotrim formula are: yerba mate, damiana leaf extract, and guarana seed extract. The first ingredient is extremely common in weight loss supplements. It is from a south American plant that is believed to have powerful antioxidant properties. Though some limited studies have shown that this substance can help in weight loss, many over the counter supplements that contain the ingredient fail to combine it with damiana leaf extract, which – according to the research – is required in order to produce positive weight loss results.
Unlike some of its competitors, Zotrim has actually included both yerba mate and damiana leaf extract in its formulation, which is quite promising. Together, they help to prevent fat cells from building up in the body. Therefore, while the dieter will still need to focus on exercising and reducing calorie intake every day, by taking this product – assuming that it contains the ingredients in adequate quantities – it has the potential to encourage faster fat burning.
Guarana see extract is also very popular in nonprescription weight loss supplements. It is also sometimes found in energy drinks because it is a very powerful stimulant. Though this can bring about a temporary increase in the metabolic rate which may be helpful when combined with cardio exercise, it also comes with the risk of a long list of different side effects, ranging from jitters and shakes to headaches, nausea, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, and others.
The official website for Zotrim is very open about the risk of side effects and makes recommendations regarding starting on a lower dose and building up as the body becomes accustomed to the effects. Although the risk of side effects is an unpleasant one, this is a notable and responsible effort by the manufacturer to ensure that its product reaches the right people.
