This is our Tavala Trim review. A supplement from Tavala which comes in two forms: powder (for drinking) and capsules for supplementing.
It is claimed to help with the following:
- Suppressing Appetite
- Boosting Metabolism
- Increasing Fat Loss
- Enhancing Energy Levels
But how well will it work for you?
In this review, we look closer at this supplement to see how effective Tavala Trim really is.
Below, we look closer at the ingredients in this supplement along with our views on side effects and what could help improve it.
This is what you need to know:
Tavala Trim Capsules
There are two versions of Tavala Trim, powder and capsule form. Both contain the same fat burning ingredients.
There are some differences, but these do not affect the results, ingredients like rice flour are there to keep the capsules together.
They’re there to help each respective form of Tavala Trim work in their own way.
The active ingredients remain the same.
Tavala Trim Ingredients
- Proprietary Blend 440 mg
- 1,5-Dimethylhexylamine HCl
- Phenylethylamine Hydrochloride
- Green Tea Leaf Extract
Unfortunately, all of these ingredients in Tavala Trim are all part of a 440 mg proprietary blend.
Although we know what they are, we don’t know what dosage they are. This means you don’t know how effective it is overall. We only know what they do, their dosage will indicate how well they do it.
It’s a problem with transparency, and it doesn’t look good for Tavala Trim.
Although there are some good ingredients, there are also some which may potentially cause side effects.
We’ll get into all that later. First let’s just look at the main ingredients:
Also known as Octrodrine. This is a risky choice in Tavala Trim.
Octrodrine was originally used for nasal congestion, but somehow made its way into fat burning supplements.
The main reason being is because it works as a stimulant. It can help boost your energy levels which can help you to train harder in the gym and to an extent raise your metabolism.
However, it also has several side effects tacked onto it which could cause issues. This is due to it being similar to the banned substance ephedrine.
We’ll cover this in more detail in our Tavala Trim side effects section later.
This however, is a much better option in Tavala Trim. Caffeine is a natural stimulant and arguably the best option on the market for improving your energy levels.
Not only that, studies show that caffeine can help promote energy, metabolism, focus and even power output. It can help you burn more calories while also improving your performance.
We’re glad to see it here in Tavala Trim.
This however, is not a welcome option in Tavala Trim. Synephrine (also known as Bitter Orange Extract) does not only have much research on it – it has risks to cause side effects.
There are some claims that it can help to promote energy and fat loss, however, there’s also a lot of evidence of it causing side effects.
In our opinion, it’s not a nutrient that we would like to see in a weight loss aid.
This isn’t a good addition to Tavala Trim either.
Phenylethylamine is an amino acid that is thought to help improve mood and focus. However, studies show that it is broken down too quickly after absorption for it to activate.
This means you won’t get much benefit from using it. More research is needed into Phylethylamine to find out how to get the most out of it.
Green Tea Leaf Extract
This is a much better choice in Tavala Trim. Green Tea is great for fat loss. It works by the antioxidants in this herb – specifically the catechins.
The catechins in Green Tea help to promote your overall levels of the fat burning hormone norepinephrine. The more of it you have in your system, the more support you have to burn fat.
It also contains trace amounts of L-Theanine which can help to improve focus to some extent. It’s a great addition to Tavala Trim.
What could help improve Tavala Trim?
- Green Coffee Bean
- Cayenne Pepper
We think these three would help Tavala Trim significantly. Here’s why:
Green Coffee Bean contains Chlorogenic acid which can help cut down the glucose in your liver. Your body uses this glucose for energy, without it, it encourages your body to burn fat as a resource instead.
Cayenne Pepper would also be good in Tavala Trim. Cayenne Pepper can help to promote fat loss by increasing your body temperature and starting a cooldown process in your system which burns more calories. It can also help improve appetite suppression.
Glucomannan can swell in your stomach to help you feel fuller for longer. This can help you keep track on your diet and consume less calories.
Side Effects – Is Tavala Trim Safe?
Your main concerns here are the 1,5-Dimethylhexylamine HCl and the Synephrine.
They both have the same problems – stimulant-related side effects.
To sum them up, we’d say the potential side effects for Tavala Trim include:
- Mood Swings
- Energy Crashes
- Raised Heart Rate
- High Blood Pressure
Nothing too serious, but enough to stop you exercising and ruin your workout.
Be careful taking Tavala Trim, if you have any concerns, we suggest speaking to your doctor or a health consultant before using it.
This goes especially if you have any preexisting conditions or suffer from any allergies.
We have several complaints when it comes to Tavala, both with the product and with the service.
When it comes to the product, we believe the ingredients are lacking to some extent and it would help to remove the proprietary blend and the ingredients that may cause side effects.
The second problem we have is with the service itself. According to reports, Tavala practice an auto-ship policy.
These can pose issues. Auto-ship subscriptions reorder the product at the end of every month and are easy to forget about. It can cause problems by receiving products that you didn’t want.
We always advise against subscription based models and auto-ship supplement schemes.
Tavala Trim Reviews
As you can see, Tavala Trim is a supplement that needs a lot of work to make it a more effective weight loss aid.
Ideally, we’d like Tavala Trim to be more transparent about the dosages and to remove some of the more dangerous options in their supplement like the Synephrine and 1,5-Dimethylhexylamine HCl (Octrodrine).
We’d also like to see some more effective fat burners in here like Green Coffee Bean and Cayenne Pepper.
There’s a lot of work that needs to be done to this supplement.
