What You Should Know
Javaslim is a relatively well-known weight loss supplement dieters can purchase from various online stores. The supplement is associated with an As Seen on TV ad system that markets products using television commercials and infomercials and then sells the product to consumers for a short period. Most of the products last only a short while before suddenly disappearing from the shelf. Javaslim uses a popular ingredient green coffee bean extract, but that’s not the only coffee extract in the mix.
List of Ingredients
- Green Coffee Bean Extract
- Coffee Arabica Fruit Extract
- Brucea Javanica Fruit Powder
Javaslim contains three ingredients and all those ingredients are derived from the coffee plant. Green coffee bean extract is rich in chlorogenic acid. Chlorogenic acid has been shown to reduce blood pressure and body weight in two small studies. The weight loss study included just 16 participants, much less than necessary for the results to mean anything in the medical world.
According to Intramedic Research, the company behind Javaslim, there are randomized, clinical trials showing weight loss when dieters take the active ingredient in the supplement – green coffee bean extract. As of August 2010, there were no human trials showing a definitive connection between green coffee bean supplements and weight loss. Most clinical trials completed to date administer the active ingredient via coffee, not a capsule and the trials are extremely small and lack control and proper design. The studies are also irrelevant because the Javaslim label lists green coffee bean extract in a proprietary blend. The dieter has no idea if the therapeutic amount is included in the formula.
Brucea Javanica is an extract that has been used for years to treat malaria, genital warts and cancer. Recent studies into the properties of the herb and how it kills cancer cells have resulted in clinically significant steps toward understanding possible medical uses for Brucea Javanica, but there is no indication the extract promotes weight loss or suppresses hunger. There is no mention why it is added to Javaslim.

Javaslim is not a caffeine-heavy fat burner known to cause negative side effects like jitters or shakes and the price is much lower than other weight loss products. Consumers must understand that most clinical trials on weight loss supplements last around 12 to 16 weeks. Many last even longer than that. Giving Javaslim, or any other supplement, a good run requires that same dedication.
