BmiSmart I-Remove ReviewBmiSmart I-Remove is an over the counter weight loss product made to provide dieters with support in reaching their weight loss goals. It is made of all natural ingredients and claims to use only substances that have been farmed in an environmentally conscious way.

The ingredients are all sourced from plants farmed in Asia and Europe, says the brand’s official website. Moreover, all the suppliers use farming methods that are environmentally conscious. The site’s explanation doesn’t extend any further to show what exactly that means, but it is certainly something that would appeal to many consumers. The various ingredients are obtained with leaves, fruits, roots and seeds from plants that are “grown in pristine regions” worldwide. Again, it does not provide any specific detail regarding what that means, though they do indicate that every product undergoes rigorous safety and efficacy testing.

The website indicates that by taking this diet pill, a dieter could lose up to three times the amount of weight that they would have lost while unassisted. It is designed to function as a fat binder, which means that it is supposed to stop the body from being able to absorb the total amount of dietary fat the user consumes in his or her meals.

The product’s main ingredient is Litramine, which is a proprietary ingredient that combines prickly pear cactus with acacia. The combination produces a fiber complex that is meant to bind with dietary fat so that the molecule becomes too large for the body to absorb it. The amount of fat not absorbed by the body is then sent out with the rest of the body waste. The website claims that this product block up to 28.39 percent of fat from being absorbed. That said, it doesn’t appear to have any scientific proof that its use actually leads to weight loss in humans. A large study published in a peer reviewed medical journal that would link the use of Litramine with meaningful weight loss could not be found at the time this review was written.

Interestingly, the ingredients in BmiSmart I-Remove are listed as being opuntia ficus-indica (prickly pear) leaf extract and acacia group-gum as well as gamma-cyclodextrin. The natural ingredients in this product are clearly from the gum of a plant and the leaf of a plant. It is unclear as to why the marketing for this product also suggests that it uses fruit, roots and seeds, when it does not.

BioFitea Herbal Dietary Tea Review

BioFitea Herbal Dietary Tea is an over the counter supplement that is taken in the form of a beverage instead of a pill like a capsule or tablet. This product is meant to help dieters who are trying to lose weight but at the same time, it is also geared toward individuals who are seeking a better fitness level, as well.

This product is sold on a number of different websites, but at the time this review was written, its own official website or a page on an official manufacturer website could not be located. This makes it rather difficult for a consumer to be able to inform him or herself about the product through the manufacturer’s own information. That said, for the purposes of this review, information was gleaned from what was shared on retailer and online market websites where the product was being sold.

According to the product description used for BioFitea Herbal Dietary Tea on Amazon.com, a user of this product will be able to improve his or her weight loss efficiency by “flushing fats and toxins.” That said, it does not make any additional effort to explain what that means or how it is meant to happen as a result of the ingredients in the product. The description also states that using it promotes a healthy digestive system. Again, aside from the claim itself, no additional information or explanation is provided.

This product’s description suggests that either it is meant to work as a fat blocker product or it reflects a rather strange lack of understanding of the way fat loss works in the body. If that fats that it claims to help a person flush are dietary fats found in foods, it means that the product claims to include ingredients that stop the body from absorbing some dietary fat from consumed foods, causing it to travel through the body and head out with the waste, undigested.

On the other hand, if it is claiming that fats stored on the body are somehow detaching and are entering the digestive tract only to be flushed away, then it is a strongly deceptive statement and should not be believed at all.

Unfortunately, the description did not contain a full list of the ingredients in this product. It identified only senna leaves, which are known to work as a type of laxative. Laxatives do not promote fat loss. Instead, they produce only temporary weight loss by causing water loss and relieving constipation. The weight soon returns once the body is rehydrated.

Green Coffee Plus Review
Green Coffee Plus is one of dozens upon dozens of diet pills based on this very popular ingredient which gained the majority of its attention when it was mentioned on an episode of the Dr. Oz daytime talk show program. Unfortunately, the statements made about this ingredient were not only unproven at the time, but they have been disproven since its airing.

Dr. Oz faced a federal Senate committee as a result of having made this and several other similar claims about unproven ingredients. This hasn’t stopped the ingredient from being highly popular as is reflected in the existence of products such as Green Coffee Plus.

That said, it’s important to note that just because the research isn’t there to prove that Green Coffee Plus can work, it doesn’t mean that it won’t. However, without the research into the ingredients and this specific formula combination, it’s not possible for a dieter to know whether or not the ideal quantities are being used, what benefits could be expected, what interactions could occur with other ingredients, medications or medical conditions, or how much is too much and causes the product to become toxic.

The official website for Green Coffee Plus claims that there will be a number of benefits to dieters using this product. For one thing, they claim that there aren’t any fat cells that can “resist” green coffee bean, the main ingredient in this formula. It also states it will help a dieter to lose up to 16 pounds per month, to repair the metabolism, to regulate blood pressure and to improve skin condition.

These are not only unproven claims but they are also quite difficult to believe considering their broad spectrum and their very nature.

While no research was cited in the description of this product on the official website, many of the claims made about it reflect the results of a moderate sized study that was in fact conducted. However, as positive as the results of that study appeared to be, they have been determined to be unusable because the methods used by the researchers turned out to be tainted.

As a result, it’s very difficult to believe the claims made about this product as they appear to lean on research with unusable results. The information they appear to rely on is not considered to be trustworthy by the medical community. It is highly recommended that a doctor be consulted before using this product.

TRIMTHIN X700 ReviewTRIMTHIN X700 is a weight management capsule designed to help people to be able to achieve their goals more effectively by overcoming the barriers in their way. The key to the success of this product is in its proprietary formula which is based entirely on pharmacological grade clinically researched ingredients.

The manufacturer of this product, an American company called Intechra Health Inc, has an official website. On that site, there is a sizeable section dedicated to TRIMTHIN X700, one of it’s most effective products for energy. It describes the product, how it should be taken, how it works and what ingredients are included in the formula. The ingredients are all described in detail including descriptions of research with cited sources linked to the peer reviewed industry journals in which the studies were published.

These ingredients are composed of energy boosters, fat blockers, fat burners and appetite suppressants. These create a solid tool kit for dieters to use along with their healthy, nutritious eating plan that is properly calorie restricted, and a regular exercise regimen suited to their fitness level.

The reason is that each of the types of ingredients in this formula help users to overcome different types of obstacles to their weight loss strategies. For instance, fat burners help to accelerate the calorie burn overall but particularly during and following a cardio workout. Fat blockers help to improve a dieter’s efforts to eat right because it reduces the absorption of dietary fats from the foods they eat. Appetite suppression reduces or even eliminates food cravings. This makes it far easier to stick to a calorie restricted diet because a dieter can make better food and portion size choices.

The ingredients are combined into a proprietary formula called the TRIMTHIN X700 COMPLEX. It includes: Dimethylaminoethanol Bitartrate, Green Tea, Caffeine, Green Coffee, Conjugated Linoleic Acid, Xanthinol Nicotinate, Cnidium Powder, Eleuthero Powder.

Intechra Health manufactures TRIMTHIN X700 at a cGMP facility. This means it has met or exceeded the good manufacturing practices of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and has earned its certification. This assures consumers that a high priority has been placed on quality and safety in the making of this product.

To use these diet pills according to the manufacturer’s directions, they are taken 2 at a time. Two are taken a half hour before breakfast with an 8 ounce glass of water. Another 2 are taken a half hour before lunch in the same way. No more than 4 should be taken in a day and the pills shouldn’t be taken within 5 hours of going to sleep as they do contain stimulants.

Absolutely Full is a diet supplement that is available online without a doctor’s prescription. It is made and sold by a company called Absolute Nutrition, which sells a range of different types of health and wellness supplement.

In this specific case, the diet pill is designed to provide dieters with relief from food cravings, appetite suppression, the ability to achieve a feeling of fullness more quickly, and improved satisfaction from smaller meals. Overall, this is describing one effect that can benefit the dieter in several different ways.

That said, the description of the product also suggests that it functions by stopping too many calories from being able to enter the bloodstream. It’s not entirely clear how those two functions – appetite suppression and calorie blocking are connected.

That said, the product becomes easier to investigate and understand when taking into consideration the fact that it contains only a single active ingredient. That substance is called LuraLean proplomannann. That ingredient is actually a form of dietary fiber that is not entirely unlike glucomannan, which is another dietary fiber which is commonly used in diet pills meant for suppressing the appetite.

Moreover, those two ingredients are both taken from the same genus of plant: Amorphophallus. They both work in a similar way in that they are both consumed dry along with a lot of water. The water is then absorbed by the fiber, turning into a gel-like substance. However, people who like this ingredient say that the effect of this ingredient is notably more powerful than that of glucomannan. Science has yet to support this claim.

There are three main ways in which proplomannan is believed to be likely helpful to dieters. The first is that it expands in water, causing the stomach to stretch, which makes the stomach send signals to the brain to say that it is full so that hunger pangs are not necessary. Next, it also absorbs bile acids within the small intestines so that they cannot be used to break down dietary fats. This means that fewer food fats are digested and more are sent right out with the waste. Thirdly, it slows down the rate at which the stomach empties. The longer it stays full, the longer the feeling of fullness lasts. This also reduces sugar cravings because it decreases the spiking and crashing of blood glucose levels.

Before using this product, it is important to speak with a doctor as it is not safe and appropriate for all dieters.

Nuvagenic is a weight loss pill that has been in the spotlight on a number of different occasions, but it hasn’t necessarily been receiving this media attention because of the help that it has been providing customers. Instead, there have been several waves of customer complaints that have flooded the internet at different times, in which they have expressed frustration over the side effects of the product, the lack of benefits, and a number of other struggles that they have faced.

What is very common about the reviews that this product has received from customers is that a large number of them would not ever purchase this product again. Still, reviews – while helpful – are not the only factors to be considered when you are thinking about a product to help with weight loss. Therefore, before making a final judgment about Nuvagenic, it is a very good idea to conduct some research with a much greater amount of depth.

The official Nuvagenic diet pill website is quite familiar to most people who have looked into at least a handful of this type of product. The reason is that it uses a kind of template that is exceptionally commonplace within this industry. It is very clear by looking at this website that the primary concern of the manufacturer is to make a sale, and that providing the dieter with the information that he or she will require in order to make a proper decision for his or her weight loss and health is secondary.

The claims made by the website about this product are that it speeds up the rate of weight loss, it provides metabolic support, it decreases fat levels (and makes a specific point that it reduces belly fat, which is odd, as there is no pill that can control the area from which fat will be reduced), and it says that it “nourishes overall health”. For the last point, it was making reference to cholesterol levels.

The lack of information provided on the website did not offer a complete list of ingredients that make up this product. The only ingredient that is mentioned on the site is African Mango (also known as irvingia gabonensis). It could be that this is the only active ingredient within this pill, but as of the writing of this review, the website never specifically said that.

Moreover, the research that has been conducted on this ingredient is quite limited. Though it has shown some promise in certain areas, that has been demonstrated only in limited, preliminary studies. At best, it can be said that African mango is worthy of further study.

Sliminex Green Coffee is an over the counter diet supplement that was once called simply “Sliminex”, but is has recently completed an overhaul of its formula and, clearly, its name. This is a product that is sold primarily on its own website and, to a lesser extent, on some smaller supplement websites. There are very few third party sites that offer these supplements.

The official website does provide a limited description of Sliminex Green Coffee, but it is clearly geared toward selling the product and not as much toward informing the user. There aren’t any studies cited that would indicate that the formula, as a whole, has ever been tested, and the research conducted by the creators of the product wasn’t identified, making it difficult to know whether the claims made about the ingredients are based on medical science or whether they are simply promises made by a company that is hoping to sell a product.

The promises with regards to Sliminex Green Coffee state that taking this pill will give a user’s body the “boost it needs for peak performance.” It identifies benefits such as increased body and lean muscle mass, as well as higher energy levels and improved cardiovascular health maintenance, on top of a reduction in body fat as the ways that this “boost” will be provided.

Overall, this means that this product would fall into the vast category of weight loss pills in the fat burner and metabolism booster categories. There are hundreds, if not thousands of pills that make similar types of claims. While some of them can be exceptionally helpful to dieters – particularly those that are following a reduced calorie and increased activity level strategy – others aren’t nearly as good as they claim to be.

For that reason, it is a good idea to understand the ingredients contained within a product such as this, before simply believing the manufacturer’s promises. It is also a very good idea to speak with a licensed physician about the use of this product and whether or not it is safe and appropriate for you.

At the time that this review was written, the ingredients that were listed in this product formula were: satiereal saffron extract, green coffee bean extract, trimethylxanthine, garcinia cambogia, raspberry ketone, green tea extract, konjac root, and L-carnitine. This makes it clear that this formula is based primarily on the effects of stimulants, and ingredients made popular by Dr. Oz, but that he has since said was a mistake to recommend.

Medoslim is an over the counter diet pill that was created to assist individuals who are seeking additional help in being able to lose and manage their weight. The official webpage for this product claims that it uses fat binders and that it “burns fat reserves in stomach, bottom, and thighs”. It also promises that the user will experience a delay in cravings recurrences.

The official webpage for the product, on the Tower Health (Medi-Direct International Ltd.) website did not provide a complete list of ingredients for the product at the time that this review was written. However, it did identify prickly pear as its main ingredient. This leaves the dieter to assume that the only active substance in this product is prickly pear. However, the description of the product also commonly refers to “ingredients”, that is, the pluralized version of the word. This would suggest that there are other active ingredients that have not been identified on the site.

That makes it very difficult for a consumer to try to understand the product and whether or not it may be appropriate or safe for use. A dieter can’t use that site to check to see if it contains any substances to which he or she may be allergic, and it makes it impossible to research whether or not there have been any large, reputable studies to support the use of the various components of the formula for weight loss.

Without being able to understand what is actually contained within Medoslim, the next resource available to understand whether or not this product may potentially work is through customer reviews. Unfortunately, on both the official webpage and on other websites that sell this product, there are mixed reviews, so it is difficult to know whether or not people are actually happy with what they have experienced. It looks as though there are just as many people who are pleased with the product as there are those who are unhappy with it.

Among the main complaints that users have shared about Medoslim is that they feel that its price is too high to make it worthwhile. At the time of this review it wasn’t possible to buy a single bottle on the website, as there was a 2-for-1 sale running. It showed that the usual price for the product was £49.99 (nearly $80, at the time of this review). Depending on usage (which is based on goals and weight), one bottle could last for as little as 13 days.

Proactol Plus, now also called Proactol XS, is an over the counter weight loss supplement. It has marketed itself extensively throughout the internet and it does have its own official website. This has allowed it to include itself among the ranks of some of the top diet pills within the fat blocker category of the nonprescription diet supplement market. Though this does not necessarily mean that it has been proven to work, it does suggest that there is something about this product that is working in its favor, and that it may be worth looking into before making a purchase.

This type of product is also known as a fat binder. These pills have been made to contain ingredients that will adhere to the fat molecules found in food that has been consumed by the dieter. By bonding to them in that way, it makes the molecules too large for the body to be able to absorb them. Therefore, they remain undigested and leave the body with the rest of the waste.

The official website for Proactol Plus claims that this diet pill goes above and beyond fat binding and acts as an appetite suppressant, as well. At the time that this review was written, the claim was that these pills worked by reducing fats absorbed by the body in a method that has been “backed by over 40 studies”. That said, not one of those studies was actually identified on the website through a title, a name of the organization that conducted them, the journal in which they were published, how many participants there were, or even if placebos techniques were used. This renders the claim all but useless to someone considering this product, as those studies could have been conducted by the manufacturer, itself on tiny, non-representative groups of people.

The Proactol Plus appears to have undergone a change, over the last while. Though the original marketing for this product had discussed the merits of opuntia ficus indica as one of its ingredients, that substance doesn’t appear to be listed among the ingredients in the product, anymore. It seems that the formula is made up of chitosan (biopolymer N-acetyl-D-glucosamine and D-glucosamine) that has been extracted from aspergillus niger mycelium.

Unfortunately, according to the Mayo Clinic, that ingredient – while unlikely to be dangerous – has not been adequately studied to be able to make solid claims about its potential benefits in the form of a diet pill. This calls into question, once again, the value of the forty studies that this product mentions on its website.

Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite is a nonprescription weight loss pill that is among many with similar names by this brand. It claims to provide “powerful weight loss” through enhanced focus, energy, and “super-thermogenesis”.

As this product contains a high level of stimulants, it is a very good idea for dieters to speak with their doctors before beginning its use. It is not appropriate for everyone, and its stimulant content will cause many dieters to experience side effects such as nervousness, shakes and tremors, higher blood pressure, a rapid heartbeat, heart palpitations, sleep struggles, and others. To the credit of the manufacturer, this site does caution users that everyone has a different tolerance level to stimulants, so this product should be taken with care and it is not right for all dieters.

Though the marketing does not say so specifically, the wording and images on the official webpage suggest that it is meant primarily for male dieters. While the website claims to have conducted two studies on the ingredients within this formula, the lack of information about the study does not suggest that it was conducted by anyone outside of MuscleTech (the company behind the Hydroxycut brand) and it doesn’t identify the number of people who were involved, so it is unclear as to whether or not it was enough to show that it is both safe and effective.

The ingredients within the Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite formula include: caffeine anhydrous (270 mg), green coffee extract, coleus extract, L-theanine, cocoa extract, and yohimbe extract. There are stimulants in several of these ingredients and the amount of caffeine, alone, is already the equivalent to more than 2 cups of coffee. Considering that this is taken all at once instead of being sipped throughout the day, this indicates that there is a high chance that many dieters will, indeed, suffer from the types of side effects mentioned above.

That said, if taken in advance of a cardio workout, many dieters will be able to burn fat more quickly and easily than they would with exercise alone, and the added energy could give exercisers a boost to help them to power through workouts more effectively, without suffering from fatigue that could drain their motivation.

Therefore, for the dieters who have a high stimulant tolerance, this could be helpful alongside their cardio workouts. However, Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite should be taken with care in order to ensure that the benefits will outweigh potential drawbacks.
