Garcinia Cambogia, Commiphora wightii, Gymnema sylvestre, Terminalia Chebula, Trigonella foenum-graecum.
A detailed herbal monograph for Garcinia Cambogia is posted on Himalaya Herb’s website. Despite being popular in many dietary supplements for being a potent anti-obesity agent, it is not backed by many clinical trials. The only reference they give is for one study done in 1996. Commiphora wightii was the subject of a 1988 clinical trial that suggests the ingredient can be a treatment for hyperlipidemia. This condition occurs when lipid levels are abnormally elevated. Gymnema sylvestre has been associated with one clinical trial involving studies of diabetic patients. The results showed the drug could possibly balance their blood glucose homeostasis. Terminalia chebula’s benefits are not backed by any studies provided by the website. Trigonella foenum-graecum also has not been clinically tested according to their website, and is also found in shampoos, hair oils and foot creams.

Once somebody inquires about the ingredients of this product they will quickly realize it produces few benefits related to fat loss. AyurSlim claims it can reduce cravings for sweets and reduce the accumulation of fat in the body. These statements have only been researched under Ayurvedic standards. Because of the lack of information supporting these claims, this product should be avoided. Ayurvedic ingredients are not as well-researched as other ingredients found in similar products.
