BioSlim is marketed as the most powerful, most healthful weight loss system ever created. Hailed as a medical breakthrough, BioSlim supposedly works by normalizing your body’s physiology naturally, to help get you to your most perfect weight.
In contrast to programs based on drugs, surgery, ephedra or other gimmicks, BioSlim claims to work with your body, never against it, to achieve its “amazing” results. Where other programs try to trick your body into losing weight for a while, the claim for Bio-Slim is that it works by making real, permanent healthful changes. The manufacturer states that after over 15 years on the market — and over 1 million customers helped — BioSlim is the only natural, truly effective way to lose weight quickly, safely and permanently!
This over-blown advertising is a major red flag because any manufacturer that talks this boldly about their dietary supplement product being that effective for weight loss, can never backup their claims with scientific evidence.
A Nutritional Supplementation Program
BioSlim’s nutritional supplementation program is quite aggressive. You start with 12 days of something called “Accelerator”, then switch to a combination of “Vita/Min Plus” and “SlimTone Formula”.
As for the ingredient list, you get a full range of vitamins and minerals and a whole slew of herbs and other ingredients like pyruvate complex, to help you with your program.
The activity plan has been designed to be quite simple with no heavy exercise regimens required. The request is to only increase the activity level of your everyday life. Overall, the program seems to have been designed so that regular people can stick with it.
There’s a BioSlim program for adults, and another for kids who can’t take pills. The kids’ version focuses on education and includes special chewable wafers. The adult kit comes with video, books, support, etc., in addition to 6 weeks’ worth of the nutritional formulas, membership in their website’s MyBioSlim service, and access to their “Doctor’s Hotline,” which is a real doctor’s office, amazingly enough.
No Evidence It is Effective
The cons of this otherwise good sounding diet pill and weight loss program is that BioSlim is a brand name for a product that contains two popular “weight loss” supplements, pyruvate and synthetic chromium (chromium polynicotinate). Pyruvate is a compound that occurs naturally in the body and can be found in foods like red wine, cheese and beer.
Proponents claim it can speed up metabolism, but mainstream medical research has not shown this to be the case. It is probably not helpful or harmful, just expensive. Chromium is needed for insulin metabolism and plays a role in the body’s energy production. It is found in mushrooms, broccoli and potatoes. Chromium deficiencies are extremely rare in humans and taking increased supplements containing chromium may lead to serious side effects.
Additional Product Information
The main BioSlim Ingredients Include:
- Green Tea
- Chromium Polynicotinate
Since BioSlim offers a full line of weight loss products, it is best to visit the official website for a full ingredients description of each product.
Keep in mind that all statements that the manufacturer has made about BioSlim have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. Moreover, BioSlim diet pills are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
BioSlim July 2020 Update
Currently, there is a BioSlim dietary supplement for weight management, but it is not the same BioSlim diet pill that was reviewed above. It appears that the other product and its complementary nutritional supplementation program for adults and its program for kids, is no longer in existence. This isn’t much of a loss, considering there was no medical evidence to backup the claims that were made about the product and its ability to deliver effective weight loss.
That being said, as for the BioSlim product that can be presently purchased (you can find it on Amazon for $24.29), it has been created by Sunova. Still, don’t get your hopes up about this supplement, either, because its ingredients include:
- Garcinia Cambogia
- Green Coffee Extract
- Piper Nigrum Extract (black pepper)
Although black pepper has been used to increase the bioavailability of the other two ingredients, neither garcinia cambogia nor green coffee have been proven effective for weight loss or proven beneficial as a weight management aid.
In other words, the claims that Sunova BioSlim can help burn fat, boost metabolism, improve blood circulation, reduce cravings and naturally detoxify the body are unfounded. Therefore, just as it would have been wise to avoid taking the other BioSlim, it would likely be in your best interest to avoid Sunov’s as well. Instead, you may want to consider a more quality and reliable OTC diet pill product to aid you in your weight loss efforts.BioSlim,
