People pickle plums all over the place – from Poland to the Philippines, where it’s possible to purchase Optrimax Plum Delite and it’s also available in the USA, too. But why pickle plums? What potential weight loss benefits could there possibly be? Good question. Let’s find out.
This is a whole pickled plum, complete with stone. It’s been soaked in some kind of pickle juice for more than six months, but the company don’t give any details about their, “unique concoction”. During the pickling process, green tea and Pu-er tea are added to said concoction.
Because we have no idea of what any of these plums have been pickled in, or what quantities of green and Pu-er tea are involved, the best advice we can give you is this: don’t stray too far from a bathroom, and keep plenty of reading material (or movies on your phone) to hand – you’re going to need them.
From distributors on Amazon, anywhere between $65.00 and $73.50 for a 30-day supply. That’s a plum a day, or so. From distributors on eBay, be prepared to pay $75.00 upwards for the same amount of plums. And also be prepared to wait a while for an eBay delivery, because most of the sellers seem to be located in Thailand or the Philippines.
Optrimax Plum Delite is sold as a weight loss product, with colon cleansing properties. One school of thought says cleansing colons is a good thing, while another says doing that can clean out more of the good bacteria in there than absolutely necessary, and therefore is not such a good thing.
Either way, a handful or two of Californian sun-dried prunes can have the same kind of laxative effect, albeit less immediate and dramatic – and all for a lot less money and a whole heap less of that pickle-pucker taste.
So although a pickled plum-based laxative and colon cleanser might sound great in theory, that’s all we’ve got to go on – the theory.
In practice, then, we’re going to pass on Plum Delite and save ourselves a few miles of bathroom tissue as well. Therefore, we do not recommend Optrimax Plum Delite to our readers.

We wish we knew more about these probiotics Optrimax are referring to. And we wish we knew what kind of pickling mixture they’re using, as well.
And if we’re being really honest, the Pu-er tea could do with a little more of a detailed description, too. All we know is that it’s fermented thanks to the application of bacterial and fungal cultures, and then left to ripen. Apparently counterfeit Pu-er tea is quite common, but what the difference between that and the real thing is in terms of weight loss remains to be seen.
From the website, “Directions Take 1 serving after lunch or dinner. For better results, drink a full glass of water after consuming. Drink at least 1.5L of water.”
Essentially, the only ingredients of Optrimax Plum Delite we know very much about is the plum itself, and the green tea, and we’re not really that sure about either of those two.
From the website,
“Healthy Detoxification For Light-Weight Sensation!
And then there’s,
“Say ‘NO’ to ways that just go against our body’s natural mechanisms! Suppress the natural appetite! Collapse the natural mechanisms! Block the natural digestions!”
It would seem to work as a very enthusiastic laxative, so for those first few days perched on the pot, you’d find yourself losing a lot of weight.
But after those plums have done their particular trick, it’s hard to say how much additional effect they’d have.
Just for the fun of it, though, we’ve included some reviews from people claiming to have lost a dangerous amount of bodyweight in a dangerously short time thanks to Optrimax Plum Delite elsewhere in this review which you’re welcome to believe, if you wish. Or not, if you want.
From the website, “Each and every plum is handpicked when they are 70-80% ripe to assure that only the most succulent plums are chosen. These quality plums are then meticulously pickled over 6 months in a premium concoction using special vats for a proprietary good taste.
Micro-punctures made in the skin prior to the pickling process optimize the pickled taste and allow thorough permeation of the probiotics and tea mix for maximum effects thereafter.
Plums provide a zero-fat source of fiber with good taste.
Probiotics help fight against harmful bacteria and maintain a desirable balance of beneficial bacteria in the guts, helping to maintain a healthy digestive system.
Green Tea and Pu-er Tea mix is specially added to the unique concoction.”
Oh, and Optrimax Plum Delite is “Certified Halal by Taiwan Integrity Development Association”
It depends on how much caffeine there is in the Pu-er tea – you might just find yourself getting a case of the jitters.
One thing’s for certain though, you’ll likely be too distracted by the other effects of Optrimax Plum Delite to notice.
From the website,
“Plum Delite is a preserved plum that is formulated with probiotics and a tea mix, to aid detoxification and support weight management. It is generally not encouraged for pregnant ladies or breastfeeding mothers to lose weight during this time, as their bodies have to provide nutrients for their child.
We recommend these ladies to start Plum Delite after delivery and after they stop breastfeeding.”
“Plum Delite is not a medicinal product and will not have any interactions with your medications. Plum Delite has the effect of encouraging bowel movement. Hence we do recommend that Plum Delite is taken at least 2 hours apart from your medications, to allow the body to absorb the medications.”
Oh, yes – there are some wonderful reviews, which we promised earlier we’d share with you. Bear in mind, though, they’re from the kind of site and Facebook page specifically created to sell Optrimax Plum Delite, so you might find them just that little tiny bit biased.
To my awe, after a week, I lost 10 pounds (4.5kg).
After weighing myself and seeing the astounding results, it’s surprising that it can be true to its claim — NO DIETS, NO EXERCISE. My confidence in myself and the product soared, after I dropped 40 pounds (18kg) in 3 weeks!
I dropped 80 lbs (36kg) after 3 months of continually taking Plum Delite.
After these claims, we thought it wise to go check Amazon, where the reviews tend to be slightly more balanced, and found:
Very expensive laxative.
That’s going to depend on the merchant. You’ll have to check with them. Sorry, we can’t help much more than that.
There’s Amazon, eBay, distributors in North America, Pacific regions, and Dubai.
Just look for Best World Lifestyle and try not to get talked into joining a downline.
Not unless that’s what you really want.
