NightTime Slim is a PM diet pill for men and women that claims to burn fat during sleep, accelerates metabolism and burns calories while at rest and promotes REM and sleep continuity. This OTC weight management sleep aid is a product created by NatureWise.

The Supposed Benefits

According to the official product page, when this NightTime Slim review was written, benefits of this supplement included:

  • Burns calories as you sleep
  • Burns fat with a “clinically proven fat burner”
  • Enjoy sleep that is deeper and more restful
  • Curb midnight cravings
  • Weight loss support that is safe

There are no studies to backup these claims that the manufacturer has made. It should also be noted that the NightTime Slim formula hasn’t been studied or proven effective. Essentially, everything that NatureWise says about this formula is unsubstantiated.

NightTime Slim Ingredients

The formula is composed of the following ingredients:

  • Capsimax Cayenne Pepper Fruit Extract

Propriety Slimming Blend:

  • Coleus Forskholii Extract
  • Green Coffee
  • Raspberry Ketones
  • Bromelain

PM Relaxation Blend:

  • L-Theanine
  • L-Tryptophan
  • Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid
  • Melatonin

According to NatureWise, Capsimax is “clinically shown” to increase resting calorie burning and curb appetite. That said, while there have been studies that have examined capsaicinoids supplementation and its effects on metabolism, there is limited research regarding its effects on appetite and human studies are lacking.

The point being, while NatureWise is not wrong in stating that Capsimax has been “clinically shown” to increase calorie burning and curb appetite, it also didn’t provide studies to backup these claims nor did it clarify if this clinical evidence was related to humans or animals. The bottom line is that this claim is misleading.

Will You Burn More Calories While You Sleep?

It is unlikely that you will burn more calories than you naturally would without taking this dietary supplement. Although NightTime Slim does contain certain ingredients that may aid fat burning and boost metabolism, such as green coffee and Capsimax, usually these are best utilized when they are combined with cardio exercise, which is the exact opposite of sleeping.

That being said, it does contain certain ingredients that may help with relaxation to aid in sleep. Still, there’s no proof that taking NightTime Slim will help with your weight loss goals in any measurable way.

If you are interested in taking a PM diet pill to help you with your weight management goals, this is something that you should discuss with your doctor as they may be able to help you find a solution that makes sense to your lifestyle and current state of health.

Re:Active T5 Super Strength is a nonprescription weight loss pill that is designed to help a dieter to be able to shed excess fat in a way that will be more efficient than they would be capable of achieving if they were to rely exclusively on exercise and dietary changes.

According to the official webpage for this product, on the DesirableBody website, this product works by increasing the rate of fat burning while exercising, and by regulating the metabolism and energy levels in the body.

In order to understand whether or not this product has the potential of actually working as well as it claims, and to know that it will be safe for an individual to use, it is important to look at the ingredients and to speak to a doctor before purchasing these pills and especially before taking them.

At the time that this review was written, the official webpage for the product provided not only a complete list of the ingredients that make up the product, but it also identified exactly how much of each substance could be found in the complete formula. The ingredients were as followed: caffeine, L-tyrosine, naringin, L-tryptophan, bitter orange powder, green tea extract, pyridoxine hydrochloride, and magnesium stearate.

At first glance, it becomes clear that this product is heavily reliant on stimulants in order to be able to produce the benefits that it claims. Though stimulants can, indeed, help to temporarily increase the metabolic rate, speed up fat burning associated with cardio exercising, and it can certainly increase energy levels, they are also notorious for producing side effects among many dieters.

In this case, the stimulant levels are actually quite high, as the caffeine, alone, is included at a level that is about the same as a cup and a half of coffee, and it is far from the only stimulant in this product. That amount of caffeine, taken at once, can cause jitters, anxiety, heart palpitations, increased blood pressure, headache, and other side effects. Even among coffee drinkers, some people struggle with this level of caffeine in a pill as it is not sipped gradually over time, but is taken all at once. Moreover, it is not the only stimulant.

Green tea contains some caffeine, and bitter orange powder is a very powerful stimulant that contains synephrine. It is powerful enough that the FDA (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has released a consumer warning that cautions people against using it because it can produce potentially dangerous effects in some people.
