Adios Review - Does This Supplement Really Work? Are availability and unproven ingredients deal breakers?
Why are people talking about Adios? We took an in depth look to create a comprehensive review, focusing closely on the ingredients, scientific research studies, customer-service quality and side effects. We also analyzed user comments from various online sources. Finally, we condensed all of the data we found to provide you with the facts.
What is Adios?
To begin with, Adios is marketed as an herbal weight-loss remedy. The manufacturer recommends it be used in combination with a low-calorie diet and exercise. The ingredients include butternut bark, dandelion root, boldo leaf, and bladderwrack thallus. The included instructions recommend taking between one and four tablets daily with meals.
Adios is made by Diomed Developments which is located in the United Kingdom. They’ve been in business since 1967 and were founded by a physician. You can find their products online and in the UK, but read on…
Availability – “Outside of the UK?”
Our first concern is how difficult it is to get Adios for dieters who aren’t in the UK. According to our Research Editor, “Purchasing supplements from another country means the safety measures in place for those within the United States are not in place. This isn’t always a concern, but consumers should be aware that regulations differ from one location to another.”
According to one consumer, “I had a friend ship it to me and it was a nightmare to get.”
Another said, “I wanted to try it but I couldn’t get anyone to send it to me.”
Others liked it when they had access. One dieter said, “I was traveling on business and gave it a try. It seemed to work but then I couldn’t get another bottle once I got home.”
One woman didn’t mind the availability issue and said, “I’m always in England so I can just buy it when I’m there and it works great.”
Another said, “MY husband picks it up for me when he visits family, availability isn’t an issue for me.”
Unproven Ingredients – “How Effective are They?”
Many of the active Adios ingredients are not well documented for weight-loss properties. The one that has some well-known association, dandelion, is primarily a diuretic and weight lost with it tends to be short term.
One upset dieter said, “I lost a little weight initially but then I gained it right back.”
Another said, “I did lose weight right off the bat but then nothing at all even though I finished the whole bottle.”
Some found the results acceptable and said, “I lost what I needed to so it worked fine for me.”
Others were happy with their results, “I always use this when I need to lose a few pounds quickly.”
Another dieter said, “I lost the five pounds I needed to for the date I had scheduled. It worked great for me!”
According to our research, quality ingredients and the ability to obtain a product easily are very important to consumers. Details like this matter in one’s overall impression of a supplement. If Adios is hard to get and doesn’t work as claimed, the dieter won’t stick around for long.
The Science – “Not Proven”
At DietSpotlight, we want to see proof that the combination of ingredients is going to promote weight-loss. Those in Adios are not supported by scientific research and the company offers no specific studies on their product.
The Bottom Line – Does Adios Work?
Should I race out for a bottle of Adios? We wouldn’t clear the shelves on the basis of what we’ve seen. We are hesitant about giving it the green light when the ingredients aren’t proven and it’s so difficult to obtain.
If you really want to drop those extra pounds you may want to check out a supplement that has ingredients that are backed by scientific testing. A strong customer service department that makes ordering easy and a price that makes a weight-loss commitment possible are also important.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is Leptigen. It is made of four key ingredients that have well documented clinical tests to indicate they may help increase fat loss and boost metabolism. It’s made in the US, is backed by some amazing customer testimonials and the price is right.
The makers of Leptigen are so excited about their product they are offering a Special Trial Offer, which is a great opportunity for dieters.
Previous Adios Review (Updated September 20, 2013):
What You Should KnowAdios is a weight loss supplement exclusively produced in the United Kingdom, claiming to stimulate weight loss. This is provided the dieter eats a controlled diet. The entire supplement claims to be naturally derived and does not state it has any side effects, minus allergic reactions to some of its main ingredients. It is widely available in stores in the United Kingdom, but its availability in other countries is currently unknown. Adios claims to help dieters lose weight if combined with a low calorie diet and exercise, but further information could not be obtained. It is mainly marketed as a natural supplement that may help dieters lose additional weight. For dieters seeking solid, research-backed pills, offering natural supplements may not be enough to gain their interest.
IngredientsAdios has two brands, Adios and Adios Max. Its regular formula contains Fucus Dry Extract, Boldo Dry Extract, Dandelion Root, Butternut, Lactose, Sucrose, Sodium Starch Glycollate, Talc, Pre-Gelatinsed (sic) Starch, Magnesium Stearate, Titanium Dioxide, Red Oxide, Yellow Iron Oxide. Its Max formula contains Fucus Dry Extract, Lactose Monohydrate, Sodium Starch Glycollate, Calcium Hydrogen Phosphate Dihyrate, Talc, Magensium Stearate, Kaolin Light, and Acacia.
Product FeaturesAdios boasts it contains natural, non-synthetic ingredients that promote weight loss and well-being. It only appears one ingredient contains significant weight loss benefits backed up by science, Fucus Dry Extract. Fucus is another name for the kelp extract Bladderwack, which is sometimes used in thyroid treatment because it contains a substantial amount of iodine which is shown to help reduce the symptoms of thyroid disorders. It is mainly used to correct metabolic slowness as a result of a dysfunctional thyroid. It is usually recommended for use only if you suffer from a thyroid disorder however, and supplementing your diet with this ingredient if your thyroid is functional may present some problems. Otherwise, its other ingredients contain no weight-related benefits and some may actually present issues for people with liver or heart problems. Dieters are advised to speak with a physician before considering this diet supplement.
