What You Should Know
Target Slimming is a weight loss capsule with a social media page on Facebook. There is a brochure uploaded on the product page with a complete list of ingredients. The page is small with only a few followers, but there is no real information about the company behind Target Slimming. There does not appear to be an official website, which is another red flag when it comes to buying a weight loss supplement from the Internet.
List of Ingredients
Black Tea Extract, Ginger Root Extract, Guarana Seed Extract, Grape Skin and Seed Extract, Grape Seed Extract and Dill Weed Extract.
Who is behind Target Slimming? It appears the company is based out of South Africa. The Facebook page for the supplement offers contact information and a “gmail” email address. This means there is no storefront of supplement website to visit. The price is listed as R250.000. This is about $35 US.
We found the same information listed on Facebook through an online community where sellers post information and buyers respond. The ad is copied verbatim on Facebook.
Aside from the fact that no one should order a supplement with no company, no online order portal and no website, let’s look at the ingredient list.
Black tea and guarana are stimulants. If the black tea is standardized for EGCG, it could have a greater impact on metabolism. There is no mention of caffeine on the label, but black tea and guarana are both sources of caffeine.
Ginger root may help ease stomach discomfort, but it’s not going to increase weight loss or suppress appetite. Grape skin and grape seed extract offer numerous health benefits, but none that pertain to weight loss.
Dill weed extract is an antioxidant that may help protect the body from cell-killing free radicals.
- Contains caffeine – proven to support weight loss and increased energy.
- Ingredients are listed online.
- There is no company behind this supplement.
- The only information available is an online ad and a Facebook page.
Target Slimming is not a new supplement, but it is one we would skip. This product is not based in the United States. It could contain ingredients that are illegal in the United States. We did not find a website, or any posts on the Facebook page other than question from a fan about who makes the product.
The ingredient list is not that bad, compared to many diet pills we have reviewed, but it does not contain an appetite suppressant. The total amount of caffeine is not listed and, again, we have no idea if the ingredient list is complete. Skip Target Slimming and move on to a proven weight loss supplement.
