Power Slim Review - Does this Supplement Work? Are the fad ingredients and ineffectiveness deal breakers?

By Summer Banks on Aug 14, 2016
Power Slim Review

With the recent buzz about Power Slim, we decided to conduct a more thorough review to see if the product is what it claims to be. We looked closely at the ingredients, possible side effects, the science, and user reviews. We also read a ton of user comments and forum threads. Then, we summarized and condensed everything to give you the info you need.

EDITOR'S TIP:

What is Power Slim?

First off, Power Slim is a weight-loss supplement that contains what it claims to be 100% hoodia gordonii. This ingredient originates in South Africa and claims to be an appetite suppressant. It’s thought that the plant contains a chemical known as P57 which imitates the effect glucose has on unnerved cells membrane which pulls it into thinking the stomach is full when it may not be. As such, dieters who use the product are less likely to snack and are more likely to eat less at meal times.

There are multiple websites for products called Power Slim, but none are for this supplement in particular. You may be able to buy it through third-party retailers, but we didn’t find any listings. We like that we were able to find some information, but read on…

Fad Ingredients – “A Let Down!”

The first thing that concerned us was Power Slim ingredients. “Hoodia is a definite fad, becoming popular as a result of exposure in the media,” said our Research Editor. “It is hard to determine which supplements on the market today actually use the real thing and that doesn’t take into account the lack of clinical support.”

We found several websites describing the supplement, but no reviews from people who’ve actually tried it.

Ineffectiveness – “Not Worth It?”

Even though the formula appears to be all-natural, that doesn’t mean is works. Research is lacking, but what has been completed tend to fall on the side of ineffective. According to Web M.D., there is not enough information about this ingredient to know whether or not it is safe.

Our research shows that if a supplement has problems, like if it’s too expensive, causes side effects or is ineffective, dieters just aren’t going to have a high chance of success. If Power Slim just doesn’t work, the dieter won’t stick around for long.

The Science – “Any Strong Proof?”

Power Slim doesn’t provide any links to published clinical research, because there is no official website. There is some science showing that hoodia isn’t the appetite suppressant the media claimed it to be. There’s also the issue that the genuine thing is extremely expensive, which means most products don’t contain it.

The Bottom Line – Does Power Slim Work?

Even though hoodia has received praise from Dr. Oz., science says this supplement may not work. We’re also hesitant because we were unable to find an online presence or information on the company that makes it. We’re just not convinced this is the dieter’s best option.

Looking to drop some weight? You may want to try a clinically tested weight-loss supplement with a healthy balanced diet and regular exercise routine.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is Leptigen. It contains four clinically tested safe and effective ingredients shown to help increase your fat burning power. Throughout our research, we couldn’t find any negative mentions of harmful side effects and we saw many users who reported experiencing solid results. The company behind it offers a website complete with clinical research.

The makers of Leptigen are so certain their product works, they’re providing new customers with a Special Trial Offer, which we love to see.

PowerSlim is a product containing the South African `Hoodia` extract, which causes the onset of weight loss through appetite and hunger suppression. It claims to be made up purely of the Hoodia Gordonii herb, one of the latest ingredients from the Kalahari desert of South Africa. For centuries, nomads and hunters from around the Kalahari desert used to chew on a bitter tasting, cactus-like, local plant to reduce hunger and increase energy when on long hunting trips making deep incursions into the desert. This plant was Hoodia, and its appetite suppression benefits have only been extracted from the plant a few decades ago.

List of Ingredients

The product claims to be made of 100% Hoodia Gordonii.

Product Features

PowerSlim is a tea that contains Hoodia plant extract. More specifically, the substance within Hoodia that leads to appetite and hunger suppression is a chemical called p-57. It is believed that this p-57 in Hoodia imitates the effect glucose has on nerve cells in the brain, hence fooling it into thinking that the stomach is full – when in reality it may not be so. This cuts down the urge to snack on unhealthy foods at different times of the day. According to Hoodia proponents, it is more powerful than glucose in telling the brain that one is full.With PowerSlim Hoodia you should see results within 14 days, as claimed by the manufacturer. Different people see different results in terms of onset of appetite suppression. For some it can occur within the first few days of using Hoodia, and for others it may take more time to build up the active ingredients to a suitable level inside the body before appetite suppression is apparent.

Advantages

  • Helps to control weight loss through decreasing the appetite.
  • Weight loss does not require strenuous exercise plans.
  • Has no known side effect.
  • Purely vegetable based product, making the weight loss process more `natural` as compared to other diet and exercise plans available.

Disadvantages

  • No guarantee that real Hoodia is used in the product.
  • Expensive.
  • Weight gain may occur upon stoppage of PowerSlim use due to revisiting of old eating habits.
  • No healthy change to one`s lifestyle is needed for weight loss, which may backfire later.

Conclusion

PowerSlim can be used to assist dieters in keeping their weight loss strategy under control. Owing to its natural constituent ingredient, which is widely regarded for its benefits, it is a natural method of controlling the appetite. However, one should be cautious in buying the product, as it does not seem to offer a money back guarantee, and there is no certification which states that the product does, in fact, use real Hoodia Gordonii from the Kalahari. What you decide to eat for your meals and how much you exercise will determine how much weight you lose at the end of the day.

    I ordered this product and after waiting 2 months and after many e-mails from them stating that I should get it any day now, I still don’t haven’t received it. I ask them to refund my credit card and they stopped responding to my request. This is a scam. Do not buy this product.
