Thermatrim Plus Review
Thermatrim Plus Facts
- Thermatrim Plus is a Slimming Solutions own brand
- Slimming Solutions are a British company
- Each bottle contains 60 capsules – one month’s supply
Thermatrim Plus is a diet pill marketed by British company Slimming Solutions and is just one in a very extensive range of weight loss products. It comes highly recommended by Slimming Solutions customers but outside this area, it has not attracted much customer attention.
Thermatrim Plus is a diet pill that claims to boost your metabolism and decrease your appetite so comes under the general description of a fat burner.
Fat burners can work for weight loss but unsurprisingly it all depends on what is contained in the pill. Boosting the metabolism is a popular claim in the diet industry and can cover everything from vitamin pills to amphetamines.
The stimulant side effects commonly associated with fat burners do not suit everyone so you do need to know in advance about the ingredients and the effects you can expect.
Unfortunately, the Thermatrim Plus advertising doe not include any information about the ingredients. It is described as an “herbal way to lose weight” but beyond that, you will have no clue about what you are taking or whether it will be suitable for you. This pill may be the best thing ever but this lack of information does not help convince anyone.
Thermatrim Plus is on sale from Slimming Solutions, a UK company based in Tyne and Wear. Slimming Solutions carry a wide range of weight loss products, have been in business for 13 years and are a reputable company we have heard of.
Their other products include clothing such as Spanx underwear and Trinny and Susannah Magic Knickers as well as a whole range of diet pills. These include some diet pills we have covered in previous reviews such as Metabo Extreme and Medoslim.
Thermatrim Plus is a Slimming Solutions own brand and is exclusive to the company.
It offers four key features although you will notice that only one mentions what this product actually does.
- Award winning company
- Great Savings with £10 off rrp today
- Hugely popular weight loss product
- Boost metabolism and combat sugar cravings
How To take Thermatrim Plus
Take 1 capsule twice per day, 1 after breakfast and 1 mid afternoon (do not take after 4pm). Do not exceed 6 months continuous use.
In order to hydrate our unique blend of herbs, we recommend that you drink 6-8 glasses of water per day.
This supplement is not suitable for vegans or vegetarians so does contain animal products.
Beyond this, there is very little information about how this diet pill works and what you can expect from it. There is nothing to link this supplement to a manufacturer either.
However, Vitalabs – a US based supplements manufacturer who specialise in private label products for companies do sell a slimming pill called Thermatrim EF to the trade so it is highly possible that Thermatrim Plus will be the same product.
The major problem with Slimming Solutions Thermatrim Plus is that it lacks an ingredients list. This is of major concern. Like most people. we would be very wary of taking something without knowing what’s in it.
Thermatrim Plus Concerns:
- Total lack of information about the ingredients
- Chitosan could cause side effects if you suffer from seafood allergy
- No independent customer feedback
What Does Thermatrim Plus Claim To Do?
According to the product information;
Thermatrim helps boost your metabolism, reduce your appetite, and also contains a built in night time formulation.
It is described as a;
best selling combined day and night formula to help put your body on a 24/7 weight loss cycle.
We are frankly struggling to understand how this “night time formulation” can work if you do not take the capsules after 4.pm.
According to Slimming Solutions, “Thermatrim Plus is herbal help to lose weight”.
So What Is Thermatrim Plus and What Are The Ingredients For Thermatrim Plus?
We searched around and found an ingredients profile via research but can only offer a general overview due to the lack of amounts quantities and product information provided. There is 500mg contained in each capsule.
Please note that there may be other ingredients contained in the formula
- Chitosan: Sugar obtained from the shells and bones of shellfish including crabs, prawns and lobsters. It is sometimes used in weight loss supplements because it is believed to help gastro intestinal fat binding. However, research suggests it works no better than a placebo.
- Guarana: Natural South American berry, which contains higher levels of caffeine than coffee. Has a strong stimulant effect similar to caffeine and when combined with green tea there is some evidence it can help promote weight loss
- Chromium Piccolinate: This trace mineral is believed to promote muscle growth and fat burning so a popular diet pill ingredient however there is no evidence that proves it actually does this. Chromium is present in a normal diet and scientists believe there is no need to take supplements.
There are some concerns about a link between chromium and cancer. Source: http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/tc/chromium-topic-overview
- Garcinia Cambogia: has been investigated for its role in weight loss and appears to have some positive short-term effects.
There is some evidence that it can help people feel full and it may have potential for fat reduction and the treatment of diabetes but research is currently ongoing.
So What Does All This Mean?
Thermatrim Plus is a diet pill that may have an effect upon your metabolism as the advertising suggests, but with the total lack of ingredients information provided by the company, we cannot say for sure.
The ingredients we have mentioned here should be safe if they are not in too high quantities but again we do not know how much of each ingredient is contained in the 500mg of each capsule. There may also be additional ingredients.
We do not advise anyone to try this supplement until more information about what is actually in it.
Does Thermatrim Plus Have Any Side Effects?
This is anybody’s guess but it may cause an allergic reaction if you are sensitive to seafood. Although seafood allergies are supposed to react to the flesh of the animal, we don’t advise you try this theory out.
Too much caffeine is well known for causing a range of side effects including:
- Head aches
- Elevated heart rate and blood pressure
- Garcinia Cambogia can cause nausea and head aches
- Chromium Piccolinate can lower blood sugar levels and has been linked to liver disease and kidney problems
Caution: Avoid if pregnant or breast-feeding. Do not take if you are allergic to seafood or have any health issues around the liver or kidneys. Avoid if you suffer from high blood pressure or a heart related health condition or diabetes. Do not take it, if you are on medication due to possible interactions. You should avoid this supplement in general because of the lack of ingredients information.
Any Thermatrim Plus Reviews From Customers?
There are lots of positive Thermatrim Plus Reviews on the Slimming Solutions website. According to the company, this diet pill has an average rating of 4.64 (out of 5) and has received 968 ratings.
This good impression is spoilt because you cannot actually see all these 968 reviews, just a few positive and undated comments.
A Typical 4 star comment is;
Product took a few weeks to work but it is great, I’ve lost 7lbs in 3 weeks. I got no side effects which is great.
In addition, a 5 star review;
have just finished my first bottle of this and have so far lost 1 stone, will be back for more!
We are not saying that these reviews are fake, only that Slimming Solutions have only chosen positive comments to show.
Elsewhere there is no customer feedback available for this product.
So Does Thermatrim Plus Work?
Thermatrim Plus may work to help you lose weight, there again, it might not. Without a full ingredients profile or any independent customer feedback, we don’t advise you to try it for yourself.
Where Can I Buy Thermatrim Plus?

What About A Guarantee
Slimming Solutions do not offer a money back guarantee.
We do not like feeling duped into buying a supplement based on the seller just telling us it will work, but this is what is happening here. Slimming Solutions have made some claims such as promising 24/7 weight loss but have not backed this up with one shred of evidence.
The lack of any ingredients information is shocking and we can only hope you get to see a label on the bottle once you receive your pills otherwise any side effects are going to be difficult to treat should you experience side effects.
In view of the lack of information there is no way we would take this diet pill ourselves. It is an easy decision. We reject Thermatrim Plus.
