QuickTrim Burn & Cleanse is formulated as a 3 part system: an AM formula, PM formula, and general cleanse. They supposedly work together in order spark thermogenic reactions within the body while also flushing out toxins and harmful buildups from the body. The product is meant for a 14 day use cycle, during which they promise weight loss results. While the descriptions we’ve heard sound great, we can’t help but be skeptical. The other QuickTrim products we’ve reviewed have not live up to their Kardashian sisters hype. But that being said, we want to be fair and every product should be given the chance to prove itself. In that spirit we decided to examine and review the QuickTrim Burn & Cleanse to see if it was any different from its sister products.
How Does Quick Trim Burn & Cleanse Work?
Looking through this product’s ingredients, you’ll find that it uses quite a few diuretics. Initially, it seems that you’re getting a great formula meant for cleansing your body, getting rid of toxins, and even burning away fat. But if you look closer, you’ll notice that while their ingredients might be right, their amounts are not. Like many fat burners out there, much of the fat burning potential comes from the caffeine content, but sadly for this product, it doesn’t have the 400mg dose needed to provide any thermogenic results. The same goes with its green tea content and several of its other ingredients. Though its detoxifying agents seem to hold promise, QuickTrim Burn & Cleanse falls apart when its fat burners are called into question. Like the other Kardashian endorsed QuickTrim products, we cannot recommend this product.
Caffeine Anhydrous- When administered in the correct amounts, this ingredient can trigger fat burning, thermogenic reactions.
Capsicum- Though used for its thermogenic effects, this Cayenne pepper extract only acts as a mild fat burning effect at best.
Metabromine- Derived from the theobroma cacao tree, this ingredient is used for promoting weight loss and in some cases, providing a euphoric effect.
Cocoa extract - A natural antioxidant derivative found in chocolate, cocoa has been used to promote many antioxidant benefits. However, it does not actually promote weight loss.
Bioperine- This patented form of black pepper is used to enhance the absorption of other ingredients within the overall product. But even if absorbing all of this products fat-burners perfectly wouldn’t give you the results you’re looking for.
Blueberry- This common food has recently jumped on the superfruit band wagon. Blueberries are full of vitamins, antioxidants, and some good fatty acids. It is actually more powerful in antioxidant power than acai. But it does not cleanse the body or promote weight loss.
Blackberry- Another “superfruit,” this ingredient is rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and other powerful nutrients meant for various purposes. But it hasn’t been proven to promote weight loss.
Trans-Resveratrol- Coming from grapes and red wine, some have suggested that this powerful antioxidant could be responsible for both weight loss and other health benefits, but recent studies have shown that this ingredient passes through the body too quickly to be absorbed.
White Willow Bark Extract- White willow bark is derivative of salicylic acid, working as a natural aspirin to reduce inflammation and pain. Most likely its included to curb the side effects of this product’s caffeine content.
Acai Fruit Extract- Despite all the positive attention this “superfruit” has been receiving in the media, it’s not as effective as you might think. It is lower in antioxidants than something as basic as a blueberry. But even if it did, antioxidants still don’t produce weight loss results.
Green Tea- This thermogenic form of caffeine is also rich in antioxidants like EGCG. However, one should keep in mind that it requires at least 400mg of this ingredient to trigger an fat burning properties.
Raspberry Ketones- A patented natural fat burner, this ingredient has been tested in rats and shown to reduce weight gain even with a high fat diet.
Banaba Leaf Extract- Though shown to be effective for regulating blood sugar and blood glucose levels, Banaba leaf extract is most notable for its ability to reduce cravings and avoid crashes.
Sclareolide- An antifungal compound, this Chinese herb has been used in some cases as an antithrombotic and antidepressant. But we haven’t seen it used for weight management.
Acetyl-l-carnitine- This natural amino acid might help feed muscles with nutrients but it does not actually burn fat.
Black walnut hull- Known to fight intestinal parasites, this ingredient has become a relatively common ingredient in many cleanses.
Grapefruit seed- A natural superfruit rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and other powerful nutrients, this ingredient is infamous among dieters. However, the grapefruit itself does not burn fat.

Pumpkin Seed- Rich in anti inflammatory benefits, vitamins, minerals, proteins, and monosaturated fats, this ingredient has also been known to lower cholesterol levels.
Myrrh Gum Powder- This ingredient has been used for its antiseptic properties and in clearing up colds and breathing problems. But it has not been used for cleansing.
Hyssop- Used as a natural convulsant due to its effect on the central nervous system, it has been used in a number of traditional ethnic rituals. However, it does not promote weight loss or cleansing.
Gentian Root- Gentian Root has been used for gastric, tonic, anti-febrile, anti-helmintic, and choleretic cholagogue benefits. However, it has not been used for cleansing or weight loss.
Elecampane Root- An expectorant and antiseptic, this ingredient is used to treat respiratory and digestive problems.
Prickly Ash Bark- This natural addition has been used for upset stomachs, sore throats, aching muscles, skin infections, and various other conditions, but not for weight loss or cleansing.
Yellow Dock Root- Traditionally regarded as a blood purifier, yellow dock root is primarily used to cleanse toxins from the body.
Oat Fiber- Oat fiber has been used to balance blood-lipid levels. It also binds bile and promotes its excretion while also promoting greater regularity.
Cascara Sagrada Bark Extract- Commonly used to address constipation, it has been used for bowel cleansing to some degree.
Aloe Ferrox Resin Concentrate- This natural and effective digestive aid promotes healing within the stomach as well as in the skin.
Rhubarb- Commonly used for its fleshy petioles, this ingredient has been used as a common laxative and has astringent effects on the body.
Prune Powder- A natural superfruit rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and other powerful nutrients meant for many purposes, this ingredient has yet to be linked to weight loss.
Senna Leaf- This leaf has been used as an anti-inflammatory and laxative. It can cause laxative related problems. However, it does not really cleanse.
Carob- Also used as a chocolate substitute, this ingredient has been used for its antioxidants, but not for weight loss.
Apple Fruit- Apples are rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and other powerful nutrients meant for various purposes but they do not fight fight on their own.
Tamarind Extract- Rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and other nutrients, Tamarind however isn’t noted for any weight loss properties.
Date Fruit- Though very nutritious, this fruit hasn’t been shown to lead to weight loss.
Fig Fruit- Possibly meant to help cleanse the digestive tract, figs haven’t been proven to help manage weight.
Buchu Leaf- Though a natural detoxifier, this diuretic can be harmful if used on its own. If used correctly, in combination with the right cleaners in general, it can have a healthy detoxifying effect on the body.
Cornsilk Stylus- This natural ingredient is beneficial for the urinary tract as a mild diuretic.
Couchgrass Rhizome- Known to be used when treating rheumatic disorders, skin conditions, urinary tract, bladder, and kidney disorders and infections, this ingredient doesn’t actually have weight loss application.
