Trim Toniq

Trim Toniq takes the edge off being hungry. We do this not through the use of caffeine, or stimulants. Just natural herbs and compounds designed to help you reduce how much you eat each day.

Questions about Trim Toniq

What's in Trim Toniq?

Trim Toniq is the world's first true botanical-based non-caffeinated, non-stimulant appetite suppressant beverage. It is unique because it uses no caffeine, no hoodia, and no artificial anythings (including sweeteners) to get its effect.

Trim Toniq works by combining eight active ingredients to work together to help lower the desire to overeat. These ingredients include Achyranthes Aspera and Irvingia gabonensis seed extracts, coca leaf extract, ginsenoside, astragulus, and inositol.

The need

We live in a time when obesity has reached epidemic proportions. It is, by all metrics and all schools of thought, the plague of the 21st century.

While there are many reasons behind obesity, one of the most overlooked is simply overeating—the habit of eating portions of food that are more than our body's need for that particular day,. This habit, once it's entrenched, is generally repeated at virtually every meal and snack.

This habit is responsible for growing list of symptoms associated with carrying around more weight than our bodies are designed for. This list includes heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, cancer, sleep apnea, varicose veins, and liver malfunction.

Trim Toniq's ingredients are designed to help you eat less food each day.

Where can I buy it?

Trim Toniq is new as of March 10th, 2011, so we are just starting to get stores involved. For now, please purchase Trim Toniq here on the site. We also list each retailer at our Where to Buy link. If your state does not yet have any locations, please help us by asking your local store to carry Trim Toniq and direct them to this site; we'll put them on our retail list immediately. If you yourself are interested in becoming a distributor for your area or campus or workplace, contact us.

What makes it different than energy drinks, or Water with Vitamins?

1. the huge amount of ingredients we use.
2. the effectiveness—Trim Toniq is the real deal.
3. We use no process sugars, such as cane sugar, corn syrup, or fructose.
4. We use no toxic "diet" artificial sweeteners, such as Nutrasweet, aspartame, Splenda, or any other fake ingredient.
5. Our formulation cost.

So why does Trim Toniq cost more than most drinks?

We use extremely expensive herbs and concentrates (some over $240 per pound) in Trim Toniq, and use effective amounts of each.

How is Trim Toniq sweetened?

We use a combination of Stevia, Monk Fruit, and cranberry and chokeberry extracts. This keeps the sugar content to just 3 grams per can, and the total calories to just below 30.

Are there any animal products in Trim Toniq?

No. Trim Toniq is completely vegan, containing only herbs and plant compounds. We are also gluten free.

Your can states that you have "Natural Citrus Extracts." What does that mean?

Our citrus extracts come from a blend of cranberry, chokeberry, and guava.

Why did you choose an aluminum can?

There were three main reasons. The first was the protection offered by the manufacture's process. We flew out to Ball Corporation's aluminum beverage can plant in New York and watched their can-coating process that they use on the inside of every can. It means that at no time does Trim Toniq touch any aluminum, ever. It's similar to the high-end frying pans that have aluminum on the bottom (to spread heat), but stainless steel on the inside—just as food never touches the aluminum, Trim Toniq doesn't either. The second reason was recycling. Ball offers cans that are up to 45% pre-recycled aluminum. Also, consumers are more prone to recycling cans than bottles or plastic, so we knew that most would not end up in the landfill. Our third reason was for shipping; we knew that Trim Toniq would be extremely popular with those that use and order from the Internet a lot, and we needed a container that could withstand shipping without a lot of costs to the customer.

In 2009, Americans recycled nearly 55.5 billion aluminum cans last year, increasing the recycling rate to 57.4 percent - its highest level since 2000. Many of us are now recognizing the value of infinitely recyclable aluminum cans – choosing a beverage in an aluminum can and then recycling it is one of the easiest ways beverage companies and consumers can help reduce their environmental footprint. Consider:

• Cans have the highest recycling rate of any beverage container in the U.S., far higher than glass and plastic.
• The average aluminum can is made from 68 percent total recycled content, the highest of any beverage container.
• Cans go from the recycling bin to store shelves within 60 days.
• Making cans from recycled metal takes 95 percent less energy and 95 percent less greenhouse gas emissions than using new metal.

What does Trim Toniq taste like?

It's delicious. Its main flavor is the black chokeberry, a very dark red berry that has significantly high amounts of phenolic flavonoid phyto-chemicals called anthocyanins. Total anthocyanin content in the choke berries is 1480 mg per 100 grams, and proanthocyanidin concentration is 664 mg per 100 grams. Scientific studies have shown that consumption of berries on regular basis offers potential health benefits against cancer, aging and neurological diseases, inflammation, diabetes, and bacterial infections.

The oxygen radical absorbency capacity or ORAC (measurement of antioxidant strength of food items) demonstrates chokeberry with one of the highest values yet recorded— over 16,000 micro moles of Trolox Equivalents (TE) per 100 g.

How do I get the full benefit?

The way to get the most out of Trim Toniq is to be sure you get at everything in the can. Meaning: we put so much active ingredient into each 8-ounce serving that basic physics won't allow it to all stay in suspension. So, to get at any sediment that occurs (and you want it for full efficacy), gently tumble the can up a few times before opening. Or, after it's been opened and while there is still some Trim Toniq left in the can, just stir the can in the air in a circular motion (this can be done fast or slow) before pouring or drinking the rest.

We are a nutrition-driven company, more than a marketing-driven one. We'd rather have to teach people on how to get at all of the efficacious herbs and compounds than to make a weak drink.

Who invented Trim Toniq?

Trim Toniq was designed by author Scott Ohlgren, who'd been writing books on the diet-health connection for the past 14 years.

How often can I drink Trim Toniq?

We suggest 1-3 cans per day.

Is Trim Toniq carbonated?

Yes, slightly.

Does carbonation leach minerals from our bones?

No, carbonated water does not leach minerals from our bones. Two short articles that talk about this issue: here and here. Here's another from Dr. Andrew Weil, MD.

Is carbonated water somehow worse for humans than plain water?

The short answer is no.

Periodically, the question of "Is carbonation ok for me?" comes up. The question stems from two concerns that have been floating around the Internet:

1. Does carbonated water weaken bones or leach minerals?

2. Does carbonated water have too much sodium?

On bones: there isn't a shread of scientific evidence that points to carbonated water having any effect, at all, on bones. Nor is there any conceivable means by which it could. Carbonation is simply carbon dioxide—CO2—which is a natural and extremely important part of human biology; it is our main way of balancing internal pH.

It is believed that the original fear around bone loss and fizzy drinks came from an ingredient used in some sodas, called phosphorous. Phosphorous may in fact leach calcium from the body. But Trim Toniq doesn't contain a speck of it.

On excess sodium: again, there's no correlation at all with carbonated water and sodium. There is zero sodium in Trim Toniq.

How many calories are in each can?

There are less than 30 calories in each container.

Where is your water from?

The water used in brewing Trim Toniq comes from one of the purest sources of water in North America. The upper Minnesota spring bubbles up from an underground prehistoric glacial lake filtered through granite over hundreds of years, and was used by early settlers to replenish their water supplies. It is also the same source of water that local micro-breweries in the area have used for over 150 years. We then put it through a reverse osmosis filtration system. It is extraordinarily clean water, which is one of the reasons Trim Toniq tastes so good.
