ImageDexatrim, one of the most popular names in appetite suppressants, has been used for more than 25 years... and that is not necessarily a good thing. According to their site, this drug free, natural diet supplement is multifunctional, suppressing your appetite and increasing your base metabolic rate to help the body burn fat and calories more quickly.

At one time, there was ephedrine in the product, but the controversial ingredient was taken away a few years ago. People who wish to purchase Dexatrim have five choices to select from: Dexatrim Results, Dexatrim Results Ephedrine Free, Dexatrim Natural No Caffeine, Dexatrim Natural Ephedrine Free and Dextatrim Natural Green Tea. All Dexatrim dietary supplements contain herbal extracts and minerals from around the world. Consumers are instructed to take one dose three times a day.

Depending on which product is used, the caplets should be taken before or with a meal. Take too much and it can be harmful to your health, according to disclaimers.

Dexatrim does point out that their diet aid works best when utilized in accord with a sensible meal plan and regular exercise. Once you've implemented all three factors in your lifestyle, they say you'll see results in one to two weeks. However, you could probably achieve the same results with diet and exercise alone.

One important fact to note is that when Consumer Health Digest ranked the best diet supplements of 2005, Dextraim ranked 30... out of 30. For metabolism enhancement, it earned 2 out of 5. For weight loss potential, Dexatrim received 2 out of 5. For appetite suppression, it received 1 out of 5. For ingredient quality, Dexatrim finished with 2 out of 5.
