We take a further look at Trim and Slim Tablets to find out more about this supplement.
Trim and Slim Tablets from Dream Remedies is a very simple looking weight loss supplement. It is advertised as part of the Dream Remedies Hourglass Range and it contains just Green Tea Extract as its one active ingredient. There are also some filler ingredients such as bulking agent modified maize starch.
Although we are not very impressed with filler ingredients, if you are going to have only one active component of a supplement, it might as well be a good one and Green Tea is certainly that.
Green tea is naturally high in antioxidants and phenols and there is some evidence that it will help promote fat burning. Green tea has proven health benefits and the antioxidants, epigallocatechin gallate (ECGC) and polyphenols found to have anti obesity and fat burning properties because of the effects upon the metabolism.
Although there is a case for saying if you are going to take green tea you might as well drink it as tea, not everyone enjoys the taste so taking a supplement may be a good alternative.
Green tea shows up in numerous weight loss supplements but not usually as the sole ingredient, like this.
Take one tablet a day with your evening meal.
Dream Remedies is a UK based company but provide little contact information, which is a matter for concern.
Despite an extensive search, we were unable to find out where this company is based. There is no customer services phone line, no address for returns or mailing and the only way you can contact Dream Remedies is via email.
We always prefer to see transparency about companies. After all, when you buy online you have to trust the company you are dealing with before you hand over your credit card details. You need to trust that any supplement you buy will be safe and reputable too. A clear physical address helps create this trust, information that is sadly lacking about Dream Remedies.
Dream Remedies market a wide range of supplements to target numerous issues including bad breathe, arthritis, anti ageing and eye care. The company also market enhancement products such as Man Up Penis enhancement and Impotence Gel as well.
All issues are covered and we found that breast enhancement products Instant Boob Job cream and Boob Job tablets are part of the 50s style Hourglass Figure range and in very similar packaging to Trim & Slim Tablets.
We have never heard of any of the supplements on sale from Dream Remedies. None of them come with much information and there is zero information about where the supplements are manufactured.
Worryingly the customer has no way of knowing whether the production of the tablets conforms to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice).
GMP guidelines provide minimum requirements that a pharmaceutical or a food product manufacturer must meet to assure that the products are of high quality and do not pose any risk to the consumer or public.
It is highly possible that Dream Remedies Trim & Slim is imported and has been manufactured without this basic control but again as with so much about Trim & Slim there is no further information.
According to Dream Remedies, Trim and Slim Tablets have eight key benefits to weight loss:
The information continues:
Trim and Slim pills have been clinically proven to ensure you lose weight the safe and natural way! Trim and Slim weight loss pills stop hunger and cravings instantly; ensuring you lose weight super-fast! Your appetite will be suppressed, and your metabolism will be increased, guaranteeing maximum weight loss! You will be amazed with the results!
Clinically proven? Have these tablets ever been clinically tested? If they had been clinically tested we would have expected to have seen details about this in the product information.
In addition, does green tea really suppress the appetite? We think that this seems unlikely.
Hourglass Trim and Slim is advertised as a fat burner and appetite suppressant however there is no information about ingredients beyond naming them. Therefore it is impossible to gauge how effective this diet pill will be.
Trim and Slim also contains added ingredients to add bulk to the tablets:
Dream Remedies do not tell customers how much green tea is contained in the tablets. There are no details about the green tea and whether this supplement contains high or low amounts of caffeine. We imagine low caffeine seeing as the instructions are to take it with your evening meal but this fact is unclear.
It is hard to believe that this is a premium quality supplement with such a lack of basic information and we cannot see it working in the way as described.
We have been unable to find any feedback for this supplement so we cannot bring you any true-life experiences. Dream Remedies do not provide any health advice or warnings either.
According to the product information, this supplement only contains the one active ingredient. However, the big question is just how much green tea is contained in each tablet?
There are some side effects to green tea and in high amounts, it can be dangerous. In rare cases, green tea supplements have led to liver problems.
Possible side effects are related to the caffeine content and include:
In addition high levels of green tea can reduce the absorption of iron from blood and lead to anaemia.
Not suitable for individuals under 18.
Avoid if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
Ask your doctor for advice before taking if you are on prescription medication because green tea can cause drug interactions.
Seek medical advice first if you have an underlying medical condition. For example, green tea may affect diabetes medication.
There are some customer comments posted on the Trim & Slim product page found on the Dream Remedies website. They are all positive but we cannot guarantee they are independent.
I have lost over a stone by taking these pills, I can’t believe it! I 100% recommend trim and slim to everyone trying to lose weight!
Other comments are equally impressive and possibly too good to be true. Although Trim and Slim is on sale via Amazon, it has not yet generated any customer reviews.
The gaps in product information make it impossible to be able to know just what this diet pill will do. There are just too many unanswered questions about the contents of the tablets, the type of tea used and the manufacturing process to be able to say for sure.
There is some evidence that green tea extract may support weight loss, Some tests suggest that it may be most effective when drunk as tea rather than taken in supplement form. One clinical test found that that taking 375mg of green tea over 12 weeks may lower cholesterol levels.
An analysis which looked at several studies into green tea concluded that the antioxidant ECGC combined with caffeine has a small positive effect on weight loss and weight management.
However we cannot see that taking green tea alone will cause the dramatic fast weight loss described in the advertising even if you combined it with diet and exercise.

We are not very impressed with Hourglass Trim and Slim Tablets from Dream Solutions. There is very little information about this supplement. We have no way of knowing where it is made and whether production conforms to safety legislation and we have no way of knowing the contents of each tablet.
Although the information states that it contains green tea, without knowing the amounts you really have no idea whether this supplement is too weak to be effective or too strong for safety.
We are always cautious of companies that hide their address and contact details. Dream Solutions have done just this and this is a matter of concern. This company sell many novelty products including breast and penis enhancement tablets and although we are not judging them on this, we are getting the impression that their supplements may not be of the highest quality.
We feel that Trim and Slim is just not up to scratch. There are countless other green tea supplements on the market and green tea as a drink so if you wanted to try for yourself, you could find better quality alternatives.
We love the charm of the 50s retro packaging but do not feel that this point alone is a reason to buy this supplement. It is an easy decision. We reject Trim & Slim Tablets.
