What You Should Know
VitaThin is a Health Depot USA supplement with tons of affiliate information online, but very little information from the company. We could not find an official website for VitaThin or Health Depot USA, but we did find a storefront on Sears.com, which was surprising figuring the poor product description and lack of support for weight loss claims. The supplement is SOLD and SHIPPED by Health Depot USA. This supplement is NOT endorsed by Sears, it just looks that way.
List of Ingredients
- Green Tea
- Psyllium Husks
Dieters look for supplements that support metabolism and help curb that appetite that makes dieting seem so impossible. VitaThin makes vague claims about just how it works for the dieter, but the ingredient list screams loud and clear.
Hoodia is supposed to be the appetite suppressant, but there are clinical trial proving Hoodia does nothing to curb appetite. The active ingredient in Hoodia is P57, which the liver metabolizes before it reaches the brain to signal a feeling of fullness.
Green tea is a great ingredient with tons of clinical support. It’s too bad that VitaThin doesn’t list how much green tea is in the supplement. Without the right amount of green tea the dieter might as well steep a cup of green tea and call it a diet supplement.
Psyllium husks are a source of fiber – included for two reasons. First, fiber tends to cause a feeling of fullness. The feeling is caused by a slowed digestive system. Second, psyllium is a natural laxative. You MUST drink lots of water when taking psyllium to help it move out of the body. Too little water and you could suffer from constipation.
Chromium is another appetite suppressant. It may help control blood glucose response to food so the dieter doesn’t feel that carbohydrate craving between meals. Again, no amount leaves the dieter without the information they need to trust the supplement works.
- Available for sale online.
- A short list of ingredients is found in the product description.
- No formal ingredient list or label is available online.
- The company offers no official website.
- Listed on Sears marketplace, but not sold by Sears.
There is no reason for a dieter to trust VitaThin. The product description is nothing more than a list of keywords and ingredients and there is no label to prove any of the listed ingredients is actually in the supplement. The company also uses the Sears marketplace as the main selling portal instead of using a company website. This may be a ploy to gain trust, but dieters should never trust a company that hides ingredients.
