Well you know, since Airborne came out, everyone seems to be getting on what I think of as the "Fizzy Lifting Drinks" bandwagon - for some reason I guess people think that it works better or it's more fun or something.

Apparently, what makes it 'fizz' is the bicarbs and sodium in them. I haven't gone to the website to check the nutritional information but there are three ingredients that are sodium-based - anyone trying to cut down their sodium intake (high blood pressure, hypertension, etc) would probably be wise to stay away from this kind of product or at least ask their physician.

Huh - I just checked the Dexatrim site and they don't even list this yet...I did find it on's site - $13 retail for 20 'servings' - that's VERY pricey - wait a second - according to the "Supplement facts" a serving is TWO tablets, so one box has a mere TEN servings...even more pricey! :o

And there IS a lot of sodium in this - 450mg per serving is a LOT of sodium (see my comparison below).

Also - if it contains 'real green tea' (I fail to see why these companies make such a big deal about the green tea being in can get PURE green tea for MUCH MUCH less money - it's not like green tea is RARE or hard to find...hoo boy...) why isn't it listed in the ingredients? My guess is that the tea is one of the "Natural and Artificial flavors" - they consider it a mere FLAVORING. Tells you how much of that 'real green tea' is actually IN the product, if it's considered just a 'flavoring'.

Also, if it's the nutritional supplements or whatever you are looking for, there is FAR less of those ingredients in these than in the regular Dexatrim Max tablets - comparision:

Thiamin (B1) - Powder (2 tablets): 0.525 mg 35%DV; pills (1 caplet): 15 mg 1000%DV

Riboflavin (B2) - Powder: 0.600 mg 35% DV; pills: 17 mg 1000%

Niacin (B3) - Powder: 7 mg 35%; pills: 200 mg 1000%

Vitamin B6 - Powder: 0.700 mg 35%; pills: 10 mg 500%

Vitamin B12 - Powder: 2 ug 35%; pills: 60 mcg 1000%

Pantothenic acid - Powder: 3.5 mg 35%; pills: 25 mg 250%

Eleuthero Root Extract (Asian Ginseng) - Powder: 100 mg; Pills: 250 mg

Cost per serving - Powder (at $12.99/box of 10 servings): $1.30 per serving
Dexatrim Max Caplets ($22.99/bottle of 75 servings): $0.31 per serving!!!

I'm not endorsing either ONE of these products, but I mean jeez...the fizzy tabs cost 5 times MORE with a lot less of the vitamins and stuff in them, not to mention a TON of sodium...just to get an idea of how much sodium is in these puppies - here are the sodium counts for some foods I consider to be on the salty side:

McDonald's French Fries, large order: 330 mg
Fritos Original Corn Chips, 1 oz serving: 170 mg
Taco Bell original Taco - 350 mg
Dexatrim Max 2.0 tablets - 450 mg

Of course I'm sure that all the other diet pills will be coming out with a "fizzy" version eventually...another case of the same old stuff being wrapped up in a shiny new package... :rolleyes:

Thanks for that easy let-down Mrs.Jim. Bummer too! Just another company trying to make money off of my problem by producing more useless pills.
