What You Should Know
Diet Dots are a weight loss supplement that is tiny and tasty. Unlike other supplements, these Diet Dots are to be chewed and not swallowed hole. Dieters are supposed to chew the dots three times a day, with three dots being one serving. The product description on the official website claims dieters need to take the Diet Dots for at least eight weeks and choose a reduced calorie diet and exercise plan to optimize results. We were hoping the ingredient list would be spectacular, because Diet Dots offers a unique name and delivery method. Unfortunately, the ingredients are not proven nor effective at curbing hunger as claimed.
List of Ingredients
Vitamin B12, Acai Extract and Citrus Aurantium.
Diet Dots claims to help the dieter curb hunger and exercise with a healthy boost of energy. The healthy boosst may not be as healthy as Diet Dots would like the dieter to believe. The energy boost comes from Citrus Aurantium or synephrine. This ingredient can be listed by other names as well including Bitter Orange and Bitter Orange Extract. No matter how many names manufacturers give synephrine, it has the same effect on the body. Increased energy is one side effect, but so is increased heart rate and blood pressure for some dieters.
Many times, weight loss products will list supportive clinical trials to back weight loss claims. In the case of synephrine or Citrus Aurantium used in Diet Dots, that is not the case because synephrine may cause more harm than good. Studies have linked synephrine to vasoplasm, stroke, ventricular fibrillation and myocardial infarction. Those are the studies weight loss companies do not want dieters to find. There are also no known studies supporting weight loss claims associated with synephrine.
Vitamin B12 is a harmless ingredient that may naturally boost energy, but the effect is short-lived as Vitamin B12 is flushed from the body within a short period. The final ingredient, acai berry, is linked to detox supplements and anti-oxidants. Acai berry is a strong anti-oxidant, which makes it a wonderful addition to any weight loss or healthy dieting plan, but there are no known weight loss benefits associated with the ingredient.
Diet Dots sell for $10 per 300 tablets. This supply will last 33 days when taken as directed. That makes Diet Dots one of the least expensive weight loss products on the market, but the formula is also one of the least effective.
- Diet Dots are inexpensive.
- The ingredients are not the most effective.
- Clinical studies link synephrine to a variety of negative health effects.
The main ingredient in Diet Dots is synephrine. For the dieter, taking synephrine is like risking heart related side effects for a chance at weight loss; a chance that has not been proven. Diet Dots will not decrease appetite because there are no appetite suppressants in the formula despite website claims of curbing hunger.
