In the diet industry, don’t mistake marketing for effectiveness. We did one of our in-depth reviews of Fruta Planta, looking closely at the ingredients, side effects, scientific research, and customer service. Plus, we read hundreds of testimonials from all over the internet. Then, we summarized and condensed it all to give you the info you need.
What You Need to Know
First off, Fruta Planta is a Chinese weight-loss supplement that claims to help you lose weight by improving digestion. It contains lemon, bitter melon, papaya, mangosteen, spirulina maxima and fruit gum. As best we can tell, you’re supposed to take a single capsule once per day with a large glass of water.
We don’t know who the business is behind this supplement or how long they’ve been in business. We like the company’s natural ingredients, but read on…
Product Warning – “From the FDA?”
The first concern we had with Fruta Planta ingredients was interaction with a government office. At first glance it appears to be an all-natural formula. However, the FDA has warned against using it and others like it, because many Chinese weight-loss supplements contain sibutramine, not listed on the label. This drug has been removed from the market for safety reasons. It is a harmful stimulant. “Since you cannot be sure Fruta Planta does not have this in it, it is wise to avoid it,” said our Research Editor.
“Did not work. I didn’t lose weight at all” said one user.

Negative Side Effects – “A Problem”
Even though the formula is supposed to be all-natural, if it does indeed contain the harmful ingredient, it’s no wonder we saw so many reports of negative side effects. Many people reported stomach pains, dehydration no matter how much water they drink and extreme constipation.
One user said, “I am extremely disappointed and if I could leave no stars I would. I have tried contacting the seller to get a refund or a replacement and no one has responded to me.”
“Terrible product, it made me really sick!,” said another.
Our research indicates that if there’s part of a diet program that’s difficult, like the harsh side effects, then users will not likely stick to the program long-term.
The Science – “Clinical Backing?”
We were not able to find science on many of the ingredients in this formula. However, the proof we did find on the spirulina actually showed it promoted weight gain, which is not what we want to see from a weight-loss supplement. At DietSpotlight, support is critical and when it’s not available, we see a red light.
The Bottom Line – Does Fruta Planta Work?
Are we racing through the streets to buy up this natural supplement? We were looking forward to reviewing Fruta Planta because it appeared to be a solid company. We were disappointed to see a number of complaints about the product doing nothing to promote weight-loss and, in some instances, causing some potentially harmful side effects. This is why we have reservations about suggesting this one to dieters.
If you’d like to lose weight, we recommend choosing a supplement that gives you safe and effective ingredients, no side effects and value for your money.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2015 is one called Leptigen. It is made with a proprietary blend of four clinically proven ingredients known to help increase metabolism and fat burning power. Over the course of our research, we weren’t able to find negative comments or side effects. We did find quite a few reports that dieters were seeing some amazing results.
We’re thrilled to see the makers of Leptigen are so confident in their product they’re giving new customers a Special Trial Offer.
