What You Should Know
SliMax claims the dieter can lose 20 pounds in just 30 days with a proprietary blend of effective weight loss ingredients. The official website offers a complete ingredient list, contact information and testimonials. We found no before and after photos, so anyone could have written the testimonials on the front page. Just because a product claims to be all-natural does not mean the ingredients are safe and effective for weight loss. There is a brief description of each ingredient and how it works in the body, according to the creators of SliMax.
List of Ingredients
SliMax Proprietary Blend: Coix Lacryma Seed, Bamboo Shoots, Tarragon Leaf, Plantago Depressa Seed and Lotus Leaf.
Coix Lacryma Seed is a natural diuretic. SliMax claims the ingredient can lower body lipids or fats. There are no clinical studies listed for Coix Lacryma Seed, nor is the common name listed. The picture shows a flower, but gives the dieter very little information.
Bamboo Shoots have been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years. Bamboo is fiber-rich. It could help the dieter feel less hungry between meals and even reduce the volume of food the dieter eats at a given meal, but it will not help the dieter eat healthier.
Tarragon Leaf is a familiar spice for many chefs. It is known to have a calming effect on the gastrointestinal system, but no weight loss benefits.
Plantago Depressa Seed is psyllium husk. Psyllium husk is a source of fiber and a bulk-forming laxative. The dieter needs to drink plenty of water to prevent constipation when taking this ingredient.
Lotus Leaf is the final ingredient in SliMax. Lotus may help reduce cholesterol levels in the blood, but it is not a fat burning ingredient as described on the SliMax website. Fat burners are stimulants that increase heart rate and Lotus is not a stimulant.
There is no green tea or caffeine in this supplement. These ingredients, along with chromium, are proven to help fight the weight loss battle. Clinical studies are important to support the validity of a supplement like SliMax.
- SliMax lists all ingredients on the official website.
- The product is sold directly from the manufacturer.
- The dieter takes only one supplement per day.
- Ingredients are not clinically proven to improve weight loss.
- No caffeine, chromium or green tea included in the formula.
- No exercise or diet tips come with the SliMax supplement.
SliMax reveals everything the dieter needs to know, the formula just doesn’t live up to dieter expectations. There are no proven ingredients, so the dieter should take a chance on another supplement with clinical studies backing the formula. Those supplements exist and they are safe and effective for weight loss.
