Slimsticks is an over the counter appetite suppressant and diet supplement that was developed by a company called Inovate Health Ltd. That company formulated this product in order to help dieters to be able to achieve a greater feeling of fullness that will last over a longer span of time, in order to make it easier for them to avoid overeating.

This product is meant to trick the brain into thinking that a dieter has eaten more than he or she actually has. The idea behind this effect is to make it easier for a dieter to stick to an eating strategy that involves the consumption of fewer calories, but without suffering from feelings of hunger as a result of those food choices. If the product works as the manufacturer claims, then it will help the user to feel full more quickly from a smaller amount of food, and then to maintain that feeling of being satisfied by his or her meals for longer.

The official website for Slimsticks says that a user will be able to “eat less”, “reduce your weight,” and “manage your weight.” The ingredients are supposed to achieve this by expanding in the stomach, without actually being digested. This makes it seem as though the stomach is fuller than it actually is because it may contain a substance, but that substance is not digestible.

The Slimsticks come in the form of a packet that needs to be mixed with water until it is dissolved. The user can then drink the formula, which would likely be an appealing method for taking this product for people who struggle to be able to swallow a pill. These drinks are supposed to be consumed three times every day – one before each meal. There are 40 calories in every packet, and they are currently available in three flavors: vanilla, strawberry, and double malt.

The primary active ingredients within the Slimsticks formula are konjac (also known as glucomannan) and oat and palm oils. It is the konjac that is the substance behind the claims of expansion in the stomach to provide a feeling of fullness.

While the official website does mention studies that would support the use of konjac for appetite suppression, there has yet to be any solid evidence that links the use of the ingredient with actually losing weight. Therefore, while it may expand in the stomach, it has yet to be proven effective in decreasing a dieter’s daily caloric intake to the point that he or she would actually lose weight.

Xenamine is a nonprescription weight loss supplement that is manufactured by a small company that is known as InnerVital. The official website for this product refers to these diet pills as fat burners and says that they will burn fat more quickly than any other supplement on the market. It also allegedly provides appetite suppression and metabolism boosting, though at the time that this review was written, the official website didn’t cite any medical studies that would indicate that there is any scientific research to support those claims.

That said, just because a product hasn’t been researched as a whole, it doesn’t mean that it won’t work. Therefore, after consulting a doctor, it is recommended that anyone considering the use of this product actually look into the ingredients and the research that has been conducted on them either together or individually. It is best to look for studies that are conducted by independent and reputable organizations, such as universities, that have not received funding by companies that stand to gain by positive results.

At the time that this review was written, the ingredients in Xenamine, which were listed on the official website, included: chromium, caffeine anhydrous, and a proprietary blend of hoodia cactus powder, caralluma fimbriata extract, glucomannan, green tea extract, theobromine, guarana, cha de bugre, maca extract, L-theanine, banaba, pomegranate powder, and gugglesterone.

At first glance, it is easy to see that a great deal of the results that are produced by this product are based on stimulants. There are several stimulant ingredients in this formulation. This doesn’t necessarily mean that it isn’t a good product, but it could cause unwanted side effects in many dieters. Moreover, it should also be noted that several of the ingredients in this list are not at all scientifically proven but are successful at the moment exclusively due to media hype. This does not say much about the ability of the Xenamine company to select proper safe and effective weight loss supporting ingredients other than the interest of that business in making money from consumers who have not done their homework when looking into their diet pills.

Finally, it should be noted that with a list of ingredients as long as this one, even if the substances that were chosen were each shown to be effective by research – which many of these have not – there still may not be enough to actually produce the type of effect that is being promised. For example, this proprietary blend is made up of a total of 992mg. Since studies showing that green tea extract successfully for weight loss used 500mg, and as it is fourth ingredient on the list, it is mathematically impossible for the manufacturers to have used enough of that ingredient to match the type of results that were experienced in the reputable research.

Slimlite Skinni Chews are another type of nonprescription weight loss product that has been developed for the market of individuals who would rather an alternative to the traditional capsule and tablet format. In this case, the formula is taken in the form of a chocolate flavored chew. That said, it is important to point out that the claims of this product are that it will give the dieter a way to avoid eating high calorie, fatty, or sugary snacks that can destroy a diet’s effectiveness.

For that reason, while it is sold in a similar way to weight loss pills, it could also fall into the “guilt free snacks” category. While they do help to satisfy hunger so that hunger pangs will be reduced, they don’t do this by reducing the need to actually eat, as is the case with pills that shrink the appetite on its own. Instead, the sensation of being satisfied comes from the action of actually eating them and going through the motions of consuming something, despite the fact that they don’t contain any calories.

The formula for Slimlite Skinni Chews has been designed to include an appetite suppressing ingredient, but that substance has not been proven through scientific study. More specifically, it includes glucomannan. This is a substance that is found in many nonprescription diet pills, despite the fact that it hasn’t ever been linked to measurable weight loss through reputable medical research. The idea behind glucomannan is that it will absorb fluids in the digestive tract, causing it to swell so that it will take up more space and create a feeling of satiety. Still, even if this works, it hasn’t been shown to lead to fat loss among its users. Moreover, there are some unwanted side effects that have been linked to the use of products that contain this ingredient.

That said, if the process of actually eating Slimlite Skinni Chews does cause a dieter to feel less hungry and avoid other snacks and foods that would contain more calories or diet-busting ingredients, then it could be well worth it, assuming that the specific dieter does not experience any side effects from the glucomannan. Moreover, this may also be appealing to people who have a hard time swallowing pills, as it does not require them to do anything other than chew up the product as they would with any other kind of normal food. Making it much easier to take.

Appexit is a non prescription weight loss pill that has been created in order to assist dieters in dropping the excess pounds faster and easier through more rapid fat burning and a suppressed appetite. This product is manufactured by a company called Advantage Nutraceuticals, which is based in Florida.

The marketing for this product suggests that it can provide dieters with a long list of helpful benefits that can be appealing to a wide range of different dieters. Among them is that this product does not contain any stimulants. This is an important point as a very large number of over the counter diet pills do contain stimulants, and while they are known to provide temporary increases to fat burning and the metabolic rate while raising energy levels, people with sensitivities could also experience unwanted side effects from them. Therefore, the fact that they are absent may be highly attractive to some individuals.

When Appexit is purchased from the official website, it comes with a money back guarantee that remains active for ninety days after the purchase date. This is quite a solid guarantee, particularly as even empty bottles can be returned. At that time, the purchase price and not the shipping or return shipping costs will be refunded. Furthermore, customer reviews on a number of different sites have been primarily positive when it comes to the advantages associated with using this product. Those points both help to reduce the risk that the product will come with unexpected side effects or that it will not help with weight loss at all.

There are, however, some drawbacks to the use of this product. These are that there are only two active ingredients that make up its formula – neither of which has been proven in a reputable human study. ChromeMate (chromium picolinate) is meant to help to maintain even blood sugar levels, which could help to reduce the risk of food cravings (particularly when it comes to sweets) but this hasn’t been proven to actually generate weight loss. Glucomannan is a water soluble fiber that swells in the stomach to produce a feeling of fullness and while the official website talks about a successful eight week study, there was no mention of who conducted it or what methods were used. It should also be noted that there was mention of a publication about glucomannan in the Journal of Clinical Nutrition, but that was an article and not a scientific study, and the issue, title, and date were not identified.

FiberTron 10 is a weight loss capsule that is marketed as being a “maximum strength” product to help to decrease fat levels on the body. It is one of many diet pills currently on the market that advertise as being the most effective for losing weight.

A bottle of 225 capsules of FiberTron 10 retails for $49.95 at the time of this review. The directions for taking this pill say that you should be consuming a tremendous ten pills every single day (twice per day, five at a time). This means that one bottle contains only enough capsules for 22 and a half days. For this reason, the cost of these pills is significantly higher than the average competition with similar ingredients, which cost just slightly less than one bottle of this product, but for an entire month’s supply. One benefit to using this product, though, is that there is a 100 percent money back guarantee offered for this product as long as it is ordered through the official website.

The primary ingredients in the FiberTron 10 formula are simply glucomannan and plantago ovata. These two ingredients are said, by the manufacturer, to work to help block fat from being absorbed into the body and stored, and suppresses the appetite, so that the dieter is inclined to consume fewer calories every day. The official website says that this product is very powerful, but also quite safe. The site provides a detailed explanation of how the ingredients work in the formula to help to promote weight loss, with the use of a chart to support the description.

The site states that the two ingredients in FiberTron 10 work together to absorb the fat that has been processed by the body and send it through the intestinal tract to be expelled as waste, instead of being absorbed into the body. As the ingredients and the fat take up a lot of space, it makes the stomach feel as though it is fuller for a longer period of time and therefore discourages the hunger sensation from returning as quickly.

The website also features an FAQ page that is handy for answering a number of common questions that consumers may have. The fact that there are only two active ingredients in this formula helps to make sure that they are included in adequate levels to ensure that they actually do what they say they will. The website features a 1-800 number for added customer support.

The drawbacks of this product is that it can lead to bloating and excessive gas. Moreover, there are no before and after pictures of FiberTron 10 users to illustrate its effects. The manufacturer of this product makes no specific recommendations to change diet or exercise habits.
