Boots Alternatives Diet Aid is marketed as a weight loss pill that will help your efforts in shedding extra pounds. These efforts may include committing to a diet that is healthy and lower in calories and engaging in regular fitness-appropriate exercise. The manufacturer does not claim this product will work magically on its own.

The marketing for Boots Alternatives Diet Aid is targeted toward people who are new to taking OTC diet pills. With that in mind, the primary focus with this weight loss supplement is to ensure that it will not cause any side effects.

However, reviews suggest that this over-the-counter (OTC) diet pill is too mild to have results that are worth your time or money. Nevertheless, even though the product itself has never been studied, the only way to get an idea of its potential efficacy is to take a look at its ingredients. 

Boots Alternatives Diet Aid Ingredients

When this Boots Alternative Diet Aid review was written, the primary active ingredients within the formula were:

  • Dandelion root,
  • Kelp,
  • Boldo

With only three ingredients, and none of them being or containing stimulants, it is likely that adverse effects will be rare and minimal for most healthy adults who take this product.

According to the package, this dietary supplement must be taken with a calorie-reduced diet in order to see its best results. As it is exceptionally inexpensive, many people find that it is an appealing way to “test the waters” of diet pills. 

How this Product Might Affect the Body

The Boots website does not provide very much information as to how the Boots Alternatives Diet Aid actually works.

Be that as it may, by looking at the main ingredients, it seems that this product is not much more than a water pill. In other words, its primary function is to eliminate excess water from the body. For instance:

  • Dandelion root extract does function as a gentle diuretic so that additional water weight is temporarily flushed out of the body. This can lower fluid levels in the body, but not actual fat. Fortunately, dandelion also helps to restore the potassium levels in the body that can plummet due to diuretic use.
  • Kelp is a type of seaweed that may contain varying amounts of iodine and algin, which can function as a laxative to help pass stool through the body, and can cause a similar from of temporary weight loss as dandelion root.
  • Boldo extract also functions as a mild laxative.

As previously mentioned, it is important to note that there is no clinical study that shows that Boots Alternatives Diet Aid, or its individual ingredients, result in weight loss through the reduction of fat in the body.

That being said, there does not seem to be any reported side effects from taking Boots Alternatives Diet Aid. This Boots diet supplement is also caffeine-free, which makes it a good choice for people who are sensitive to stimulants. However, as it can cause frequent urination or bowel movements, it is important to drink sufficient water when taking this product to avoid dehydration.

What Else Should You Know?

In case you do purchase these weight loss pills, it is worth noting that the Boots Alternatives Diet Aid does not come with any guarantee from the manufacturer. If you find that it does not assist in reducing your body fat, you will have lost the money you spent on the product.

Moreover, as Boots Alternatives Diet Aid essentially an OTC water pill, keep in mind that any weight loss experienced will not be permanent as you are only losing water, not body fat. Additionally, it’s always a good idea to talk to your doctor before you taking any dietary supplement for nutritional, health or weight loss reasons.

*Update – As of August 2019, Boots Alternatives Diet Aid could no longer be purchased online and has likely been discontinued or rebranded as another product.

Avaprex review

Avaprex is an As Seen on TV weight loss supplement that is marketed as being an alternative to prescription weight loss medications such as Adipex and Phentermine. The official website that was created specifically for these pills claims a number of different benefits from which dieters are supposed to be able to benefit.

The site makes it very clear right at the start that while these are meant to be highly effective diet pills, Avaprex is not a product that is safe and appropriate for all dieters. For example, it points out that it is meant only for adults who are aged 18 years old or older, and it is not considered to be safe to use for pregnant women or mothers who are breastfeeding their babies.

For the first few months that the product existed, the creators of the official website went to the extent of listening not only the names of all the ingredients that are included in this product, but also included the quantities of each substance when taking in the recommended servings of 2 capsules at a time. At the time this review was written, however, it had designated its formula as proprietary and listed the quantities of only some of its ingredients, instead of all of them. One dose of two capsules contained: 300 mg of raspberry ketone, 200 mg of green tea, 100 mg of caffeine anhydrous, and a proprietary blend of 600 mg containing apple cider vinegar, grapefruit, kelp, acai fruit, African mango, and resveratrol extract.

While the site has gone to the effort of providing this information, which does make it easier for dieters to be able to decide whether or not these ingredients are safe and appropriate for their dieting expectations and health needs, the down side is that the majority of those ingredients are unproven, at best.

Of that entire list of ingredients, only caffeine anhydrous and green tea have a certain body of scientific and clinical evidence to support their use as a part of a diet pill. The rest of the ingredients are considered to be entirely unproven, unlikely to be beneficial, or have only preliminary research to support claims made about their weight loss benefits.

For this reason, it would be challenging to be able to recommend Avaprex over other products on the market that are supported by a more substantial body of research published in peer reviewed medical journals.

ZendaSlim is an over the counter weight loss pill that has been formulated to make it easier for dieters to be able to reduce their fat levels in a way that is faster and easier than diet and exercise alone. This is an exceptionally common claim in the health and wellness industry, so it is important to investigate a product that makes this type of promise, before actually purchasing it and starting to use it.

The official website for these diet pills has underscored the idea that it is “doctor endorsed and recommended.” At the time of this review, there was, indeed, one doctor’s name that could be found on the website in the form of an endorser of ZendaSlim. What was interesting about this individual’s endorsement, at the time of the writing of this review, was that the picture of the doctor who was supposed to have been the endorser is not the same as the image of the man that is linked to the endorsement page. It is unknown whether the link image is a generic photo simply to represent the idea of a doctor who would recommend the product, or whether this is someone else who has remained unnamed but who backs this pill. Either way, it doesn’t leave a feeling of confidence behind on the side of the viewer.

One positive note is that the website takes the additional step of providing a list of all of the ingredients contained within ZendaSlim, including references to studies that have to do with those various substances. The ingredients that make up this product include: Green Coffee Bean Extract, Green Tea Extract, African Mango Extract, Apple Cider Vinegar, Grapefruit, Caffeine, Acai Berry Extract, Resveratrol Extract, and Kelp.

While there are studies cited with respect to these ingredients, when actually looking at them, it is clear that many of them have a slim chance of actually providing any weight loss benefits to the dieter. Acai berry extract and resveratrol extract, for example, have been associated with some of the largest weight loss scams in the history of this category of the industry. Grapefruit has never been directly connected with fat loss. Green coffee bean extract and African mango extract are both greatly hyped ingredients that have never been adequately studied on human subjects for dieting purposes. All of their claims are unproven.

Caffeine and green tea extract are both supported by legitimate medical studies and can help to reduce the appetite, boost energy levels, and enhance fat burning.

NatureWise Raspberry Ketones Plus is a diet pill that is available without a prescription and that uses one of the ingredients with the greatest hype in this industry to help to sell itself and to produce the results that it claims to provide.

This is a formula that is meant to be taken every day, either before or after meals. Raspberry ketones aren’t the only ingredient in this formula that are associated with a great deal of hype. In fact, this product contains a range of different substances that have been near the top of the “hot” list of ingredients in this industry, regardless of whether or not they have been studied or proven to work.

Among the ingredients that make up the NatureWise Raspberry Ketones Plus formula are: African Mango Extract, Acai Berry Fruit Extract, Green Tea Extract, Resveratrol, Apple Cider, Vinegar, Kelp, Grapefruit Extract, and Raspberry Ketones.

Its official advertising claims that NatureWise Raspberry Ketones Plus is a formula that will act as a fat burner, as well as an appetite suppressant and an Adiponectin (hormone) regulator. It promises to help dieters to be able to break down their body fat at a more rapid pace than they would be able to achieve on their own.

The marketing explains that fillers and binders are not included among the ingredients in this product, which can be appreciated by many dieters. When examining the active ingredients in this product, it is clear that there are some that have been studied with some positive results in the weight loss sector – such as green tea extract (assuming that it has been used in adequate quantities) and there are some that have been associated with scams and fraudulent claims, such as acai berry fruit extract and resveratrol. Those two substances, when it comes to weight loss, have not been proven to do anything. They can be healthy supplements, but while it is nice that they will help to contribute to overall health, that is not necessarily the purpose of this product and their inclusion shouldn’t be mistaken for anything beneficial in terms of body fat reduction.

One positive note about this product is that regardless of whether or not it has any weight loss benefits at all, it does appear to have some healthy potential advantages, including the fact that it contains antioxidants and other healthy nutrients, and it contains some substances that could help to lower bad cholesterol levels.
