Thinz is a weight loss product in the form of a pill that is manufactured by Alva-Amco, which is also known for its production of over-the-counter medications, nutritional supplements, and medical devices. Thinz is only one of over twenty different brands that have been created and manufactured by Alva-Amco. Their other over-the-counter products focus on issues such as skin problems (anti-fungals, psoriasis medication), as well as analgesics, and diuretics.
With Thinz, the claim is that it is an effective weight loss aid. In fact, there are three different Thinz products, each with a different marketing angle. These three products are: Thinz Carbofast Dietary Supplement Caplets, Thinz All-Natural Capsules, and Thinz All-Natural Caplets.
The marketing materials for Thinz products say that all three of these products have all-natural ingredients, that they suppress the appetite, that they provide an energy boost, and that the metabolism will be able to process fat more effectively. On top of this, the Thinz Carbofast Dietary Supplement Caplets also claim to inhibit the body from additional fat storage.
The ingredients lists in the all-natural Thinz drugs are not long, which – if the ingredients are properly chosen, is actually a great deal more promising than many other supplements with long lists of ingredients, but not enough of anything to make a difference.
Thinz Carbofast Dietary Supplement Caplets contains white bean extract, green tea leaf extract, turmeric extract, croscarmellose sodium, dicalcium phosphate, magnesium stearate, maltodextrin, microcrystalline cellulose, pharmaceutical glaze, stearic acid, and talc. This is by far the product with the longest ingredient list.
Thinz All-Natural Capsules contain chromium, riboflavin, green tea leaf extract, gelatin, magnesium silicate, pharmaceutical glaze, non pareill seeds, titanium dioxide, and turmeric. While it does seem promising that this pill contains 480 milligrams of green tea leaf extract, which can make it quite effective (as many diet pills do not contain even half of the required amount of green tea in order to be effective), it may concern many that this drug contains chromium, and so much of it. Experts at the Mayo Clinic say that there is not enough scientific evidence to show that there is any proof for the claims being made about this ingredients, and other medical professionals are saying that it has been linked with renal failure in rare instances, and that it interferes with neurotransmitters. Lab studies on animals have also shown that chromium can cause DNA damage.
Thinz All-Natural Caplets contain riboflavin and green tea leaf extract. Essentially, this pill is the equivalent of drinking about fourteen cups of green tea every day. It may have some mild weight loss benefits.
The only Thinz product sold on the manufacturer’s website is Thinz Weight Loss Program. These diet pills contain alfalfa, cayenne pepper and green coffee. The actual amounts of these ingredients are not disclosed, thus it is difficult to determine whether they will be effective in helping someone lose weight. According to the official website, Thinz Weight Loss Program pills should be used in conjunction with ThinzEdge eating plan.
