According to the Avatrim diet pill’s website “Avatrim’s advanced ephedrine-free formula is powered by a revolutionary blend of green tea and other potent thermogenic compounds clinically proven to increase the body’s metabolic rate and energy expenditure to help promote reductions in weight and body fat.” Sounds good to me, but will this diet pill really do all this?
Green Tea-A common stimulant, green tea has been shown to boost your energy levels and may help increase your metabolism.
Biotin-A vitamin that is needed to form fatty acids and glucose, biotin also helps metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.
L-Carnitine-A nutrient that helps turn body fat into energy. And though safe, L-carnitine has been shown to have little effect on improving fatigue or helping with weight loss.
Alpha-Lipoic Acid-Also known as ALA, Alpha-Lipoic Acid is found in spinach, potatoes, broccoli and few other natural foods. It is an anti-oxidant that has been used to help people with diabetes but has not been shown to help with weight loss.
R-Lipoic Acid-Another antioxidant that has not been proven to aid weight loss.
Sounds good in print, but where’s the proof?
At face value, the ingredients in Avatrim sound pretty great. After all, vitamins like biotin are used by the body to help metabolize carbs, fats, and proteins and l-carnitine is used in the body to help turn fat into energy. Too bad that none of these effective-sounding ingredients do much at all when it comes to helping people lose weight. Basically, the only ingredient in Avatrim that has been proven to be of any use when included in a diet pill is green tea-and it’s most effective when combined with other good ingredients, which Avatrim is apparently lacking.
The marketing push for this company is to prove to you that their product has been researched and is a new, unconventional way to help you lose weight. What these marketers must not realize, then, is that we have seen all of this before. For example: The Avatrim diet pill contains green tea. So, these marketers claim that Avatrim is scientifically proven by citing a bunch of studies about the effectiveness of green tea. The problem with this is that there are no studies showing that Avatrim is an effective diet pill and green tea is most effective when combined with other good ingredients (which are lacking in Avatrim). So just because there are studies that show green tea can help with weight loss doesn’t mean that Avatrim will too. Plus, there are also a few testimonials that are obviously fabricated and are even paired with some blatant stock photos. I don’t know about you, but I’m not believing any of this!
For a one-month supply of Avatrim, you pay $19.95. As you order more bottles, you get a price break and can order up to a six-month supply for $79.95.
OK, I’ll cut this company some slack: they do have a pretty good guarantee. You can return your purchase for up to six months after buying it, minus shipping and handling, of course. It doesn’t matter if the bottles are opened or not.
Besides having a decent guarantee, there is nothing about Avatrim that convinces me that it is different that all of the other bogus diet pills out there. The ingredients in Avatrim are not proven to help with weight loss, and when it comes down to it, the quality of the ingredients determine the quality of a diet pill. There are so many place to buy diet pills, but for Avatrim, it’s a thumbs down.
