What You Should Know
Teenslim, according to their website, is the first diet supplement directed towards teenagers that offers optimal diet support by balancing metabolism, decreasing weight, and cleansing out harmful chemicals from the body in order to achieve a healthy balance in the body. This herbally-based formula claims that it contains natural, potent ingredients which specifically target all problematic areas in developing teenagers, and that it is therefore a sound solution for teenagers struggling to lose weight. The ingredients found in Teenslim also claim to work to balance hormones and mood levels, which are common problems for teenagers.
As a quick note, diet supplements are generally discouraged for use by teenagers because they are still developing; however, Teenslim claims that it specifically uses ingredients that do not disrupt this balance. Currently available online for $34.95, it also comes with a money-back guarantee and positive testimonials, which will convince many teenagers to try this product. They do not provide any evidence about how its ingredients interact with the teenage body, which we will attempt to evaluate.
Not Listed on Official Site: Foeniculum Vulgare, Garcinia Cambogia, Commiphora Mukul, Fucus Vesiculosis, Arctium Lappa, Gallium Aparine, Eleutherococcus Senticosis, Gymnema Sylvestre. It is not clear if these are all of the ingredients contained in the product, and teen dieters are advised to meet with a doctor before using this supplement.
Teenslim only features natural ingredients, living up to claims that it is a 100% natural product for teenagers. Teenslim also claims that it will balance metabolism and weight without disrupting a teenager’s developing body, which leads to a very important concern. All of these ingredients are found in nearly all diet products that are not recommended for teenagers. Teenslim’s safety is a huge factor here, and parents are advised to meet with a doctor privately before beginning this diet regimen.
Upon closer inspection, most of these ingredients are well known in the diet industry, but Garcinia Cambogia is a potent ingredient that helps increase energy and decrease appetite. It is not a cure all, however, and is not guaranteed safe for teenagers. It could provide some benefits if used properly and under direct doctor supervision.

The Bottom Line
Teenslim may entice younger dieters, but there are only some benefits, and some aren’t even proven safe for teens. Teens will benefit more from a safe diet and plenty of exercise, neither ofo which compromise their health or safety. Don’t rule this out, however — it might be useful as a last resort. Also, remember that overweight teens can be extremely self conscious and emotional, so maybe a diet aid like Teenslim isn’t really the best idea.
