Slimming Toe Ring Review – Does This Weight-Loss Ring Work? Are effectiveness and lack of comfort deal breakers?PUBLISHED: 08/13/2015 | BY: TORY GRAY, SENIOR REVIEWER
There’s a lot of enthusiasm surrounding Slimming Toe Ring, so we decided it was time to narrow down the facts in a detailed review. Our review examined effectiveness, comfort and the company. We also browsed hundreds of buyer comments and reports from retail websites. We compiled the information to give you a boiled-down version.
What You Need to Know
Firstly, Slimming Toe Ring is a set of silicone rings that fit around the big toe. Each one has a magnet that is supposed to work as acupressure to reduce hunger and support weight-loss. You wear the set all day so portability is not an issue.
Slimming Toe Ring is a product of Sodial. The set is affordable and widely available on the web – a positive sign. There are some supportive comments and no negative side effects have been reported, but read on…
Effectiveness – “Not Really”
Users are not sold on Slimming Toe Ring. No matter how many days the silicone and magnetic products are worn, weight-loss just doesn’t happen in most cases. “No matter how little a product costs, if it is not effective consumers will not be happy,” offers our Research Editor. “Slimming Toe Rings retails for less than $2, in most cases, but why would dieters waste money for no results?”
“I wore these for a week at least. No weight loss whatsoever!,” offers a dieter.
“The product is a scam. I used it for a few weeks, and all it did was hurt my feet,” says a consumer.

Lack of Comfort – “Ouch”
If a product is not comfortable to wear or if it causes pain, consumer support will fall quickly. Reports of pain come up time and again.
“Even though they were a perfect fit, walking on the hard little magnets was painful!! They kept rubbing the skin raw!!,” reports one buyer.
They feel extremely gross after wearing a few minutes,” claims a dieter.
Another consumer says, “Uncomfortable, doesn’t do anything but hurt my toes. “
Our research indicates if there is a problem with a weight-loss product like ineffectiveness or lack of comfort, this could lead to lesser long-term results. If Slimming Toe Ring does not work, this is an issue to consider.
There’s no official website or information on the company behind Slimming Toe Ring so “science” is not part of the equation. We were unable to find any studies supporting the weight-loss claims made by Sodial, the creator of the product. DietSpotlight believes clinical research is a critical component. If support does not exist, it could be.
The Bottom Line
After reviewing Slimming Toe Ring it was easy to come to a decision about the product. Though there are a few issues we appreciate, like the price and some positive customer comments, we felt it unwise to give this one a thumb up. There is no official website and information on the manufacturer does not exist.
If weight-loss is your end goal, our research suggests you go to a product that brings with it a cost-effective solution and clinically researched and proven ingredients.
From all of our research, we’ve chosen Leptigen as one of the leading products in 2015. Its formulation includes four ingredients backed by published scientific research supporting claims of a boost in fat loss and metabolism. No negative side effects are mentioned and people are commenting on their exceptional results.
The company behind Leptigen has faith in the product, so they are offering a special trial offer – a pleasing sign.

What You Should Know
These days everyone is trying to loose weight! There are so many products advertized, ranging from the cheap to the expensive. Here is a cheap one – The Slimming Toe Ring. The Slimming Toe Ring is loosely based on the ancient art of acupuncture, which is in itself, is a studied and detailed approach to health. There are certain acupuncture or meridian points on the body that govern digestion and Slimming Toe Ring claims to use these points to help the pounds drop off. Slimming Toe Ring is a non-allergic silicone ring that you wear on your big toe or toes.
Slimming Toe Ring claims that by wearing the rings, and changing nothing else in your diet or habits, the pounds will simply melt way. It sells for $19.95 and there is hurry up and by this product now feeling from the web site. The web site, which has a gimmicky feel to it, also shares that the Toe Rings can bring peace and balance to your life in addition to weight loss. Included in the $19.95 price tag are two toe rings, one for each big toe. The web site has a special claiming this price is only good through May. The offer makes the product seem like a late night infomercial offer.
List of Ingredients
The Slimming Toe Ring claims to apply pressure to certain acupuncture points that in turn will cause weight loss. In addition to weight loss Slimming Toe Rings claim that the magnets will encourage your core muscles to work harder though out the day. The rings slip on your big toes and magnets in the rings supposedly align with acupuncture points and keep them stimulated all day. They affect points on both the big toe and second toe. There is no further explanation than this available on the web site and there are a couple of very short testimonials praising the powers of the rings.
- One time fee
- Relatively safe – no side effects.
- No real explanation of how it works.
- No research or true testimonials to back up product.
- Gimmicky web site
- Product is reviewed as a gimmick.
Acupuncture is an ancient form of healing created in the East, thousands of years ago. It takes 4 or 5 years to get licensed to practice acupuncture and a lifetime to truly understand it. Although serious acupuncture treatment along with diet and lifestyle changes likely could help you lose weight, it seems doubtful that the Slimming Toe Ring is the Magic Bullet. The web site and online reviews leave this product feeling a little like a weight loss scam.
