What You Should Know
Accelis is just one of the many completely holistic diet alternatives on the market today. People are becoming suspicious of many chemical-laden diet supplements due to the side effects and lawsuits that seem to be very frequent in the past ten years. Accelis is all natural and made mostly from teas and other plant compounds.
Accelis bills itself as a stimulant free weight loss supplement that can help you lose an average of 10 pounds quickly. A high selling point is also the fact that you don’t have to eat a handful of pills each day. Instead, just one tablet each night is all you need. Accelis claims to be a glucose-controlling supplement. Glucose is a basic simple sugar that delivers energy to you cells. Your cells work hard to regulate your glucose levels and when there is too much glucose in your bloodstream, it can lead to an increase in body weight. Accelis supposedly encourages glucose to be used in the muscles for energy instead of being stored as fat.

Accelis has Lagerstroemia speciosa (Banaba Eextract) as its main ingredient. This extract has been studied by many different groups for use in controlling diabetes. It has been shown to lower blood sugar levels in animals and humans with diabetes. However, clinical studies undertaken in 1999 didn’t prove it to be effective in non-diabetics. Banaba extract contains corosolic acid which has been shown to support healthy blood sugar levels.
Accelis has no stimulants and many people who are sensitive to caffeine find this very appealing in any diet supplements. Even though a large number of the ingredients are teas, they are completely caffeine free.
- No caffeine or other stimulants.
- Just one pill per day.
- No appetite suppressants or fat burners are in the ingredients list.
- No conclusive evidence for weight loss or other benefits in non-diabetic users.
- Official website seems to be gone.
- Bottle has 20 servings. Not quite a 30 day supply
Accelis does seem to have potential for increasing your metabolism due to all of the green and other tea varieties that are included in its formula. The problem is that they don’t have caffeine, which negates some of their fat burning properties. The benefits for those with diabetes may be worth looking into but for most of us, this product probably won’t have many noticeable effects. As of this writing, the official website vanished which is never a good sign.
Accelis says you will lose an average of 10 pounds quickly but it doesn’t quite say how fast. We need to assume they mean after you take the entire bottle over a 20-day period. As with many of the herbal supplements on the market, to really have them be effective you will need to alter your diet and use the supplements in conjunction with a healthy exercise regimen.
