I was interested by the mention of Best Slim the other day, so I decided to look into the supplement to see if it really works. I dug around looking for side effects, ingredients, clinical research and customer service. Then, I tried to find a collection of user reviews online. Finally, I condensed and refined to give you the bottom line.
What You Need To Know
To begin with, Best Slim is a supplement made with a blend of cassia seed extract, coicis extract, mulberry leaf extract, lotus leaf extract, mustard extract and medical amylum. The user is to take 2 pills daily with meals. Best Slim supposedly supports weight-loss. One plus to this particular supplement is that it is easy to take.
Best Slim is “made in the USA” by Best Group USA. That’s interesting because the description below the product name is written in Vietnamese. The pills seem easy to take and they aren’t as expensive as some other supplements we’ve come across, but read on…
Ingredients – “None Listed?”
The first thing that bothered us about Best Slim ingredients is that they aren’t listed on the official website. “Under no circumstance should someone buy a supplement that doesn’t list its ingredients openly,” says our Research Editor.
The supplement costs about $35.00 for 60 capsules, which would be a month’s supply. If the ingredients list we found from another source is correct, that would be $35.00 worth of laxatives. None of the listed ingredients directly support weight-loss.
Legal Standing – “Bad”
Upon searching the product online, we discovered an FDA safety alert for Best Slim. Apparently, the makers of failed to list sibutramine on the label. This ingredient is banned ingredient because of potential side effects.
Best Slim with an expiration date through 2016 has been recalled and Bestslim.net is no longer available. Advanced Best Slim is still available on the Best Group’s website.
If even one element of a weight-loss supplement is a little bit off, the chances of long-term success are pretty slim. If Best Slim is not honest and open about ingredients, the dieter may want to keep looking.
The Science – “Validated?”
Not surprisingly, there isn’t any science to back up Best Slim’s claims. In fact, several of the ingredients have been proven to have a laxative effect. Furthermore, sibutramine has been linked to potentially harmful side effects. We at Diet Spotlight place a lot of value on scientific research. Supplements that ignore this don’t rate very highly for us.
Bottom Line – Does Best Slim Work?
Is Best Slim worth a shot? Should we race out for some? It’s difficult to trust a company that sneaks a banned substance, like sibutramine, into a supplement, so we are hesitant to give the green light. The Best Group is not open about the current formula for Advanced Best Slim. Lastly, the cost of $35.00 is not warranted for a laxative-based product.
If you need to burn fat or shed unwanted weight, we suggest looking for a product that is shown to work, rather than spending money on ingredients that won’t help you reach your goals.
Among the best supplements we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. It offers a proprietary blend of four ingredients that are clinically proven to help spark your metabolism and fat-loss. It doesn’t come with risk of harmful side effects. User reviews around the web are great too.
The makers of Leptigen are offering a Special Trial Offer right now, so there’s confidence in the product.
