DietSpotlight Burn is a diet supplement manufactured in the USA by DietSpotlight. According to the official website, just two pills per day can provide safe, effective weight loss and help you “discover what you can achieve”.
DietSpotlight are keen to let potential buyers know the weight loss enhancing ability of the main ingredient (Meratrim) can be supported by two clinical studies, but we were only able to find details about one.
It was conducted at the University of California and, although the participants lost weight, they were forced to adhere to such a low calorie diet they could have lost weight without help from a supplement.
What is DietSpotlight Burn and How Does it Work?
Like numerous other diet pills on the market, Burn is designed to suppress the appetite and boost the metabolism. If the pills can achieve this the combination of less calories going into the body and more being burned for energy may cause an energy shortage that will cause the body to begin burning its stores of fat.
One capsule provides:
- Meratrim (400mg): A proprietary blend that combines unspecified ratios of sphaeranthus indicus (East Indian Globe Thistle) and G. mangostana (mangosteen). Indian globe thistle is an under-researched herb that may have anti-diabetic qualities. Mangosteen is a tropical fruit extract that is often used as a health drink. The American weight loss Guru, Dr Oz, conducted a study that appeared to show mangosteen can help with weight loss, but the study was a carbon copy of the one conducted on Meratrim, at the University of California, so the women involved would have lost weight anyway.
- Green Tea Extract (200mg): Research shows green tea assists weight loss by boosting the metabolism and encouraging thermogenic fat burning.
- Chromium: (100mcg): A popular diet pill ingredient that can reduce sugar urges by helping ensure blood glucose levels are kept on an even keel.
- Natural Caffeine USP (75mg): Caffeine is a proven fat burner and metabolism booster. It’s also a stimulant, so its presence may help prevent diet-related fatigue. However, the amount provided here is slightly less than you would get from a cup of coffee.
DietSpotlight Burn Customer Feedback
Although DietSpotlight provide a number of testimonials that are alleged to have been written by satisfied customers, feedback obtained from such a biased source cannot be relied upon for accuracy. Customer opinions published at third-party websites suggests the product may work for some, but not for others.
A few average customer reviews read:
DietSpotlight Burn Side Effects & Health Issues
Burn is not intended for women who are pregnant or nursing a child or for anyone who is less than 18-years-old. The FAQ page on the official website says some users might experience mild headaches and/or increased heart rate.
It this happens supplementation must be ceased at once. People who have existing health issues are advised to obtain the approval of a doctor prior to commencing supplementation. The same advice is offered to people who are using medication.

The Bottom Line
We are far than convinced about the abilities of Meratrim, but green tea and caffeine have the ability to support weight loss.
Chromium is a good diet pill ingredient as well, so if people use the pills alongside diet and exercise they will surely see improved results. However, although the presence of chromium may help with sugar urges, the formulation lacks any powerful appetite suppressing ingredients; so all burn has to offer is a faster metabolism and some help with fat burning.
Most dieters need help controlling their hunger and this particular diet pill cannot provide this important support.
Burn is also a super expensive product that costs around twice the price of the leading diet pill brands so it cannot be seen as offering good value for money.
