What You Should Know
Slim Xtreme Gold is a weight loss and cleansing supplement that seems to have a missing manufacturer. We did find mention of Global Wellness in some online literature about Slim Xtreme Gold, but the website for that company does not list Slim Xtreme Gold as a current product. We did find, however, that several online vitamin and supplement companies sell the product for various prices averaging about $50 a bottle. Without a viable manufacturer to link to the supplement, the product may contain ingredients not listed or it could be another product with just a new label and marketing portfolio.
List of Ingredients
Bitter Orange Fruit, Cassia Seed, Mulberry Leaf, Jobstears Seed, Medical Amylum, Konjac Root, Lotus Leaf.
The descriptive literature explains the Slim Xtreme Gold product as being a weight loss supplement “now” with cleansing. This means there must be a natural laxative in the supplement somewhere, so we will take a look at that when we investigate the ingredient list.
Bitter Orange Fruit is the first ingredient and is likely the most abundant in the supplement. Bitter orange goes by several names including synephrine and citrus aurantium. The supplement description claims bitter orange is commonly used to fight mild insomnia, but the fact is this ingredient is stimulant. There have been claims of fainting, increased heart rate and disorders of the heart associated with bitter orange. Nowhere in the Slim Xtreme Gold literature is this ingredient revealed as a stimulant.
Cassia Seed is described as a natural laxative. The information we found verifies this ingredient does have laxative properties so this is the cleansing ingredient and it comes in as the second most prominent ingredient. That is pretty powerful.
Mulberry Leaf is listed as another potential laxative, but the information we found for the supplement lead us to believe the ingredient was better used to control blood sugar levels when taken in one gram doses before large meals.
Jobstears Seed, or Job’s Tears Seed, is listed as having the ability to help the bowels move as well. That makes three ingredients with cleansing properties and only one stimulant. This supplement is reading more like a colon cleansing supplement than a weight loss supplement. Medical Amylum is a starch that could have cleansing properties. Konjac Root is simply glucomannan another fiber. Lotus Leaf is the final ingredient which lends anti-diarrheal properties.
- Bitter orange may increase heart rate and metabolism.
- Multiple laxatives and fiber sources.
- Bitter orange may cause unhealthy side effects including increased potential for heart attack and stroke.
Slim Xtreme Gold is not a safe weight loss product. There are no proven weight loss ingredients and the supplement has more laxatives than most dieters would like to take.
