Thinz is a brand of diet products created by Alva-Amco, who manufacture medical devices, supplements, and over the counter pharmaceuticals. The official Alva-Amco website claims they have been selling products to pharmacies and supermarkets in North America since 1904, and now have products available internationally. Thinz is one of over 20 brands created by Alva-Amco. Some of their other products cover areas such as anti-fungal, psoriasis, and diuretic-analgesics.
Thinz claims to be “the leading diet aid brand for over 50 years” and offers three separate products in its line. There is the Thinz All-Natural Caplets, the Thinz All-Natural Capsules, and the Thinz Carbofast Dietary Supplement Caplets. The all natural Thinz products claim to give you an energetic feeling, suppress your appetite, and help your body metabolize fat. The Thinz Carbofast product claims to suppress your appetite, boosts fat metabolism, and also discourage your body from storing excess fat.

Thinz is a very mild diet product. The main ingredients are green tea and chromium which are proven to speed metabolism slightly. The green tea has naturally occurring caffeine, which is what may give you an energetic feeling.
The official website has the full label of the product listed in .pdf format, which is very nice for users looking to see full product ingredient lists. You can view the serving sizes, full list of ingredients, and all other typical label information. There isn’t much to Thinz, which some people may like. Thinz comes in three different products but they are very similar in composition, which could be slightly confusing for some.
- Thinz is very mild.
- Thinz has a simple formulation, and full ingredients are given.
- Doesn’t contain many powerful fat burning ingredients.
- There are no testimonials or studies posted on the official website.
- Little information is given on the manufacturers product support policies, such as product returns or customer inquiries.
Thinz is an extremely mild diet product. Most diet products will contain dozens of ingredients that will work together to help your body increase its metabolism and help burn fat. Thinz is basically a green tea pill with a few other ingredients thrown in. Thinz is sold in drug stores such as CVS/Pharmacy and is fairly cheap at $9.30 for 32 capsules. The problem we have with Thinz is that it just doesn’t contain any of the more popular fat burners on the market. With so many advanced diet control pills out there, this one just isn’t up to par. However, as a general health supplement, it probably couldn’t hurt to take the daily does of green tea provided by Thinz (of course, a cup of green tea could be just as effective.)
