Slim Xtreme Review

Editor's Review: 3.5 / 5.0

What You Should Know

Slim Xtreme claims the dieter can lose up to 20 pounds in as little as 4 weeks. The official website seems to be located at Burn20.com, but the site looks more like a review page than an official manufacturer or product website. Another website, Diet66.com lists the ingredients as well, so this product could only be sold through affiliates. There are testimonials and before and after pictures available from one dieter who lost weight in just 11 weeks.

List of Ingredients

Burn 20: Bitter Orange, Cassia Seed, Mulberry Leaves, Jobstears Seed, Medical Amylum.

Diet66: Bitter Orange Fruit, Cassia Seed, Mulberry Leaf, Jobstears Seed, Medical Amylum, Konjac Root, Lotus Leaf, Semen Coicis, Bamboo Shoots, Tarragon Leaf, Psyllium Husk.

Product Features

At first glance, the testimonials are very powerful. The dieter can look at the in progress pictures and see how the dieter slimmed down while taking the Slim Xtreme supplement, but the ingredient list does not support the weight loss claims.

Bitter orange is a strong stimulant related to Ephedra. The ingredient became wildly popular after Ephedra was banned, but is does not have the same effect as Ephedra in the body. Ephedra worked to decrease appetite and increase fat burn, but the side effects were life threatening. Bitter orange carries some of these same side effects, such as increased blood pressure and potential liver damage, but the FDA has not banned the ingredient as of 2011.

Cassia seed is clearly a laxative as the description on the website listed one of the medicinal uses as constipation treatment. Laxatives are often included in weight loss supplements to cause diarrhea or increased bowel movements which can temporarily reduce weight. The weight loss is all water weight and will return as soon as the dieter stops taking the supplement.

Mulberry leaves have been proven to help control blood sugar levels when taken before meals. When blood sugar rises and then falls, as the digestion process of carbohydrates is completed, hunger can strike. This is a good ingredient to include in any weight loss product.

Jobstears seed is barley once the shell has been removed. The seeds have a diuretic effect, which can lead to dehydration. There is no weight loss benefit to this ingredient though it is listed as an appetite suppressant.

The final ingredient, according to Burn20, is medical amylum. This is a starch that is supposed to help fill up the stomach to reduce appetite though no verifiable information could be found on the ingredient.

A one-month supply of Slim Xtreme can be ordered for just $14.99.

Advantages

None.

Disadvantages

Different websites list different ingredients.

Many of the ingredients are diuretics or laxatives.

Some ingredients have very little information online.

Conclusion

We cannot trust a supplement with no official website and multiple websites listing different ingredients. Bitter orange is not safe for everyone, but there are safe weight loss supplements to choose from.

    In the Fall of 2010 and into the winter of 2011 I tried Slim Extreme and loved it!! If I could sell it I would have. I went from 140lb to 126lb within a month. I stopped taking it b/c i was pleased with my loss and it was not cheap. I noticed i was gaining some weight back after a few months and so I desided to try it again and was then disappointed b/c it did not seem to work. In January of this year I desided to try it again as my weight went back up to about 142 lb. I lost the weight again on the product. Last month I went to purchase another bottle and found the web site to be shut down. I was so disappointed!!! I love Slim Extreme!! The only side effect I noticed was canker sores and being very thirsty. The canker sores stopped immediately when I realized you can not have coffee with this product. So I changed my timimg on the pill and coffee. As far as thirst? Increasing my intake of water is a good thing. What I like about Slim Extreme is it does NOT make me have increased bowel movements. I really hope they bring this prodfuct back.

    The U.S. Marshals have seized several dietary supplements that the FDA says contained Sibutramine, the active ingredient in Meridia, a drug that was withdrawn in the US in 2010.

    According to an FDA video, “the ingredient sibutramine , which was pulled from the prescription drug market for increased risk of heart attack and stroke, has been found in weight-loss products. ”

    But despite warnings, the FDA says a company called Globe All Wellness was distributing dietary supplements containing Sibutramine from their Hollywood warehouse. The business was raided by the U.S. Marshals this week.

    On the company’s Facebook page they have pictures of the products that were seized by the government including, SlimXtreme, SlimXtreme Gold, Slim Plus, Slim Lee, Gel Slim, Slim Drops and Colonew.

    Last year, the Department of Health and Human Services warned the owner of Globe All Wellness that he was violating the law by selling supplements that contained the banned substance but he allegedly continued selling them.

    After many attempts to reach Globe All Wellness’ owner, Eran Hamami, he told NBC 6 counterfeit versions of his product are giving him a bad name and that most of the pills seized by the government did not contain sibutramine.

    The FDA warns that this is serious.

    i’ve heard and read that the slimxtreme had a FDA RECALL last year because they used unsafe chemical ingredient so why it’s still on the market? did they change the ingredient? or its the same ?
