Quicktrim was a group of 4 different weight loss and cleansing products (ranging from pills to powdered drink mixes) that were created and endorsed by the famous Kardashian sisters.
Funny enough, it is these products that got them into legal trouble in the end. According to the USNews article, 4 users of Quicktrim were not satisfied at all with the results they got and they filed a $5-million lawsuit against Kardashian sisters.
The original Quicktrim products were: Extreme Burn, Fast Cleanse, Burn & Cleanse 14-day Diet System, Celluslim. You notice that we’re talking in past tense about Quicktrim. This is because this product is no longer sold on the official website. As a matter of fact, the official Quicktrim website no longer exists. And from reading comments online from ex Quicktrim users, many of them are unable to reach Quicktrim by phone or mail in order to get their refunds.
Ingredients found inside these products were caffeine, piperine, white willow bark and green tea inside the thermogenic complex and also some of the stimulant laxatives such as senna, cascara and rhubarb inside the night cleansing formula.
Ingredients of Quicktrim products were closely investigated by few nutritional and fitness experts and the critiques were very harsh. For example the amount of caffeine inside the daily dose of “Burn and cleanse 14 day diet system” is equivalent to 4 cups of coffee! Experts were most irritated by the fact that manufacturers didn’t disclose the exact amounts of caffeine and other ingredients on the label.
“I don’t think anyone should take these products” – one of the experts (Fugh-Berman) said.
Quicktrim side effects
It is obvious that side effects are possible with all those stimulant ingredients inside Quicktrim. Too much caffeine can cause you to feel irritable for no reason, anxious, panicky etc. If you happen to take these caffeine-packed pills alongside your cup of coffee, you’re just asking for more trouble in form of heart arrhythmias, high blood pressure and such.
Stimulant laxative ingredients present inside Quicktrim can cause constipation because your intestines eventually become dependent on those ingredients and can’t function well without them.
Quicktrim Kardashian pills – is it recommended?
To our knowledge, Quicktrim has been discontinued from the market (at least in USA) as their website is no longer available. However it looks like Quick Trim products are available for purchase in the UK at Rowlands Pharmacy website. Apparently Kim Kardashian went to the UK and kept promoting her product, despite the lawsuit in USA. Also there is a new EU website set up for the Quick Trim products. What we noticed is that new line of products is a bit different than the original Quick Trim products.
It is up to you to decide if you will buy this product or not. We advise you to look for other alternatives, though.
