Below we take an in-depth look into Tavala Trim, to see whether this stimulant-based weight loss drink is all it claims to be.
Tavala Trim is a weight loss product that contains a number of stimulant ingredients, such as caffeine, synephrine, and DMHA. It works by raising the customer’s heart rate, forcing the body to work harder even whilst resting (thus burning fat). This pricey product comes in the form of a powder that is designed to be mixed with water for a morning drink, although customers can also purchase the same mixture in capsule-form if they prefer.
Tavala Trim’s side effects are significant and serious. Ingredients like DMHA and synephrine are thought to cause heart palpitations, high blood pressure, and insomnia, with synephrine also being explicitly linked with causing heart attacks and strokes in healthy patients. Caffeine intensifies the effects of both, and can also additionally cause jitters, headaches, irritability, and sleeplessness. Almost all of the customer comments we found mentioned experiencing heart-pounding side effects whilst using Tavala Trim.
On the official Tavala website, a 28-day supply of Tavala Trim costs an astonishing $70 (plus an additional $4 in shipping costs). Prices from independent distributors may differ, although it appears that they purchase their own stocks of Tavala Trim for a similar price. Don’t expect to find this product on sale for much under $70.
Products like these may be marketed in a glitzy and professional way, but that doesn’t make them any more effective or desirable.
Although the stimulant effect of this product could work well in theory to burn fat and suppress appetite, its many potential side effects are likely so harmful as to make it intolerable. Almost every customer comment we found mentioned experiencing side effects in one form or another, with many highlighting the kind of heart palpitations that could be dangerous.
In addition, this product fails to disclose its ingredient quantities, posing further risks to customers. Customers will also be paying upward of $70 per month for the privilege of putting themselves at risk, making this one of the more expensive fat burners out there.
The company that has designed and manufactured this product is also a problem in of itself. Despite offering a reasonable money-back guarantee for customers, this company works in the same way as almost all other MLMs – by exploiting naïve distributors for their labour and money. By creating substandard products, they essentially create a world where everyone – from distributors to customers – ends up losing (except for the company’s founders and leaders of course).
We don’t tend to advise using stimulant-based weight loss products at the best of the time, but if you insist on doing so, you could find a cheaper and more respectable option than Tavala Trim.

Tavala Trim is an expensive weight loss drink that claims to be inspired by “cutting-edge developments in health and nutritional science”. Using a combination of caffeine, DMHA, and other ingredients, this stimulant-based concoction aims to burn fat via thermogenesis. Each drink is pink/purple in colour and is flavoured with elderberry.
This product is manufactured by Tavala, a multi-level marketing company based in the USA. Tavala operates a stylish website and has a penchant for marketing highly expensive dietary supplements for a more style-conscious type of customer. Most of the profits made by Tavala appear to be driven by their many independent distributors, who stand to make around 10% off of each sale they make on Tavala’s behalf.
The directions for use are as follows:
The carefully-branded MLM approach of Tavala is the brainchild of its founder, Boyd Wathen, a serial entrepreneur who has also headed similarly-minded organisations like TruVision Health, Divee, and Plexus Worldwide. The company can be contacted via the details supplied on its official website.
Tavala Trim is a flavoured powder that is designed to be mixed with water to create a weight loss drink. Using stimulant ingredients, this product aims to raise the metabolism, suppress the appetite, burn fat, and provide energy and focus. The product was also supposedly designed in reference to recent breakthroughs in science and nutrition, leading the manufacturers to claim that using it will “lead to a healthier and happier lifestyle”.
With its heart-pounding mixture of stimulants like DMHA, synephrine, and caffeine, this product likely works well to suppress appetite, burn fat, and boost energy. Green tea also has a proven track record of inducing mild weight loss, making this mixture potentially effective as long as each ingredient has been provided in sufficient quantities.
It’s worth mentioning that strong stimulants like these tend to cause significant side effects that many customers may find intolerable. Products like these are only effective if customers can stand taking them!
The ingredients found in Tavala Trim are listed below. Unfortunately, the manufacturer fails to list all ingredient quantities for the ingredients used in this product, which can make it hard for customers to work out whether the mix works, The quantities that are listed are correct for 1 sachet or 1 capsule (5g) of Tavala Trim.
This product is likely to cause significant side effects that render it one of the riskier weight loss tonics to consume regularly.
Tavala Trim’s key ingredient, DMHA, is chemically very similar to a banned substance called DMAA. Although it remains unclear how safe DMHA is due to a shocking lack of research on it, it remains likely that it creates many of the same worrying side effects as DMAA, including heart palpitations, high blood pressure, heart attacks, and strokes.
Side effects associated with the use of synephrine include an increased heart rate and increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, fainting, and even heart attacks and strokes in healthy patients. The Mayo Clinic has recommended avoiding the use of Bitter Orange extract because, in their opinion, the risk of using the product is not worth the pay-off of any potential weight loss. The effects of synephrine and other bitter orange extracts are enhanced when combined with caffeine.
Side effects of caffeine can include headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness, and insomnia. The various stimulants found in this product will likely interact with the caffeine to increase and intensify its positive and negative effects.
One final concern is that the formula uses a needlessly high dose of Vitamin B6 – although this ingredient is not thought to be harmful in normal circumstances, such a large quantity can cause flushing, brain and nerve problems, vomiting, loss of appetite, headaches, tingling, and sleepiness.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. If you are taking any medications or are unsure about the suitability of this supplement for you, consult your doctor before purchase.
We were only able to find a handful of comments made about Tavala Trim, mainly in Youtube video comment sections and other forums. Working out how people truly feel about this product is tricky, as there are many “positive” reviews that are actually posted by independent distributors who seem desperate to sell their current stock. Almost all real comments mention serious side effects, with sellers often recommending drinking the tonic slowly and carefully.
I ordered a sample and experienced anxiety and an increased heart rate. My friend has lost approximately 40 pounds using this product, with no exercise. She looks amazing and feels great but I won’t be purchasing this product due to the side effects I experienced.
I have taken Tavala Slim for 6 months and haven’t lost a damn thing, it’s garbage and a waste
The first few days I started I felt a little sick and jittery. It’s cleansing the toxins out. I was also drinking it to fast. I’m way sensitive to any type of caffeine so….natural of not. But once I started being better at the water I did fine! I only drink half the packet the first couple weeks. Then went to full packet. Control with it helps a lot!
On the official Tavala website, the company’s “policies and procedures” section mentions a customer satisfaction guarantee. If any customer remains dissatisfied with their purchase, they are free to return the unused portion to the company for a full refund (minus shipping and handling). All returned products must be returned with the original purchase receipt within 60 days of the date of purchase. The same deal does not apply to distributors, who must return any unsold product in a re-saleable condition. Distributors returning unsold products will only receive 90% of the value of their returned stock.
Tavala Trim is only available to buy on the official Tavala website, although there are many independent distributors willing to sell the same packs locally (or on their home-made websites/eBay pages).
