FenTrim is a diet pill produced in the USA by Sutra Health. The company also markets a number of other weight loss products but, other than the fact that they are based in Utah, very little is known about the company. The label on the bottle provides a website address, but the site is no longer functioning. Sutra Health now appears to prefer to do all their marketing via Amazon.com, so the only customer support methods available are those provided by Amazon.
Although Sutra Health’s marketing material does not state FenTrim is designed to be a Phentermine substitute, the similarity between the names, could confuse customers into thinking this is the case. The fact that the tablets are predominantly white, with blue specks, is also likely to cause confusion because the prescription-only appetite suppressant Phentermine has the same distinctive appearance. Customer feedback confirms many Amazon customers have already fallen into this trap, causing them to bemoan the inadequacies of FenTrim and state it does not compare to the real thing.

What is FenTrim and How Does it Work?
Judging by the claims made, FenTrim appears to offer a combination of appetite suppression and fat burning. Diet pills of this nature are extremely common. The formulation also promises extra energy, which probably comes courtesy of the formulation’s caffeine content. If the ingredients used are strong enough to support the claims, and are included in sufficient quantity, the pills should help the user to lower their calorie intake, while also increasing the amount of calories they burn, causing the body to begin burning its fat to attain any extra energy it needs.
Each FenTrim tablet contains 525mg of a proprietary blend.
No inclusion rates are provided, but the blend contains:
- Synephrine HCI
The fact that no inclusion rates are provided makes it impossible to predict what the tablets may or may not do, but L-Phenylalanine is an amino acid that is sometimes used for treating depression. Although it is often included in weight loss supplements it has never been proven to offer this benefit.
Theobromine is a mild stimulant sourced from cocoa. Many claims are made for its abilities, both as an appetite suppressant and as a fat burner, but once again scientific evidence is lacking. Caffeine is also a stimulant. It has proven abilities and, for this reason, it is a key ingredient in Red Bull and other energy drinks.
Synephrine is a stimulant as well and apart from providing extra energy it can boost the metabolism and encourage fat burning. Unusually large doses can be dangerous though, so the lack of inclusion rates here gives cause for concern. L-Taurine is often used to improve mental performance, and L-Carnitine is sometimes used as a fat burner, as is DHEA; but overall the blend does not inspire confidence because it appears to be more focussed on providing stimulation than fat burning or appetite suppression.
The majority of comments left via Amazon’s feedback system suggests the product works, but some reviewers mention they have received discounts in exchange for their reviews. Other reviews extoll the virtues of a totally different product called PhenApex that is made in Utah by GS Labs, not Sutra Health. Both of these factors cast a very big shadow on the validity of the reviews.

As highlight at the top of this review, the “Phen” or “fen” prefixed diet pills are represented best by Phentaslim.
It is no coincidence that some of the most respected reviewers and authors in the diet pill industry rate it as their best product.
