What You Should Know
When a world-renowned physicist was alerted to the fact that his health was in grave danger due to his weight, the result was the product known as VivaSlim. VivaSlim is offered in two different types; the original formula and VivaSlim Chocolate, a dark chocolate containing ingredients that claim to help you lose weight. While we found a handful of online retailers that offer these two products, we were unable to locate a company or product website for VivaSlim. The company the makes VivaSlim is VivaTRU, which also markets a number of other natural products for a variety of purposes.
We are concerned about the fact that we are unable to find a corporate presence for this product on the Internet. We did find references to a VivaSlim website in some of the information we located, so it appears that the company website no longer exists. We believe this does not instill confidence in the company or the product, and also means that important manufacturer policy information like money back guarantees, customer testimonials and complete ingredient lists are hard to come by.
List of Ingredients
The ingredients in the VivaSlim product include Minatrol™, Momordica, Fenugreek, ForsLean®, CF Formula, Gymnema Sylvestre, Gugulipid®, Bioprene®, Vanadyl Sulfate, Magnesium Citrate\Malate, Chromium Polynicotinate in a vegetable-based capsule.
Fenugreek is an herb that can aid in the regulation of blood sugar and glucose levels in the body. It is also high in fiber, contributing to a healthier digestive system and making you feel fuller so you eat less. Momordica is another herb that can contribute to healthier blood sugar levels. Biopren increases the body’s thermogenic response, possibly allowing you to increase metabolism and burn calories at a more efficient rate.
The chocolate version of VivaSlim contains similar ingredients to the original formula, but comes in a rich dark chocolate piece that claims to also curb a sweet tooth. Dark chocolate is said to be rich in antioxidants, which can fight the free radicals in our environment that can accelerate the aging process and heighten the risk for a variety of diseases.
- The product claims to be all natural and toxin free.
- VivaSlim was developed to stimulate the thermogenic process.s
- Lack of an online presence means customer testimonials, money back guarantees and free samples are hard to come by.
- The product does not contain proven ingredients like Advatra Z and hooodia gordonii.
- VivaSlim is only available at a handful of online retailers.
While an all natural, toxin free formula is definitely a positive step in meeting your weight loss goals, we don’t believe the VivaSlim formula has the proper oomph to help you meet your goals. With a lack of an online presence and effective ingredients conspicuously absent in the ingredient list, we believe there are better products available to sink your diet aid dollars into. The dark chocolage VivaSlim could be worth a try if you crave sweets, however.
