What You Should Know
Ultra Slim FX is a weight loss supplement with some very good ingredients and some ingredients that are completely ineffective. Rarely do we find one supplement with the right formula to naturally boost weight loss without harmful side effects. Green tea and chromium are strong ingredients with years of clinically research backing up weight loss claims. The other ingredients, however, are based more on myth than fact.
List of Ingredients
Chromium, Glucomannan, Cocoa Extract, Green Tea Extract, Hoodia Gordonii, D-Glucosamine HCL and Citrus Naringin.
Hoodia is the first ingredient we want to approach. Hoodia, an extract of a South African cactus, hit the weight loss market with claims of severe appetite suppression. The folklore surrounding the ingredient told a story of South African hunters using the extract to stave off hunger while on a long hunt. When the weight loss industry heard the news, everyone added Hoodia to his or her supplement. What dieters do not know is authentic Hoodia is rarely exported out of South African and most supplements have no Hoodia in them at all. Clinical research has also shown no reduction in hunger when real Hoodia was consumed.
The good ingredients are there to balance out the bad. Green tea, 500 mg per serving, is a major player in the Ultra Slim FX supplement. The dose is high and it provides just enough caffeine to boost metabolism. If Ultra Slim pushed this supplement as a green tea based diet pill, they may have better support.
Chromium is also a great ingredient commonly used to regulate blood sugar levels. There has been controversy over how well chromium works for dieters, but the science behind the ingredient is strong enough for us to support its use.
We were afraid Citrus Naringin was a derivative of Bitter Orange, but it turns out the ingredient is derived from grapefruits. As a good source of bioflavonoids, we see no weight loss benefit. Ultra Slim FX sells for $19.77, far less than most weight loss supplements. There is no mention of an auto-ship program, free trial or guarantee. There are also no testimonials on the website.

Green tea can be purchased for less than $19.77 and that is probably what the dieter should choose in place of this supplement. Green tea is the best ingredient and without testimonials or a free trial, the dieter must trust in a manufacturer who clearly has only sales in mind.
