B-Slim Review - Does This Weight-Loss Supplement Really Work?
Why is it that so few diet products are backed by science? Let’s find out if B-Slim is one of the good ones. We did one of our in-depth reviews, focusing closely on the ingredients, side effects, scientific research and overall customer service. Furthermore, we spent many hours reading through user comments posted online. At this point, we compacted all of the facts and responses we found to give you the information you need.
What is B-Slim?
First of all, B-Slim is marketed as an herbal weight-loss formula that does not contain any artificial colors or flavors. The ingredients include Hoodia Powder (20mg), Green Tea Extract (10mg), Apple Cider Vinegar (405mg) and Garcinia Cambogia (30mg). This supplement aims to detoxify the body, keep your appetite in check, burn off stubborn belly fat and increase metabolism. In order to use it, you need to take one capsule 30 minutes prior to breakfast and lunch. Also, you are encouraged to drink at least eight glasses of water a day.
B-Slim is a South African weight-loss pill that does not appear to be available to people outside of the country. We are unsure when this supplement was first released, but it is sold online via the official website. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee and a bottle will last for 30 days, but read on…
Fad Supplement Ingredients – “A Concern?”
We are concerned about the fad B-Slim ingredients, such as Hoodia Gordonii and Apple Cider Vinegar. According to our Research Editor, “Although these are used in a number of over-the-counter products, neither has been proven to help with weight-loss.” 
One customer said, “It certainly does not work for me. No weight-loss at all!”
“Not sure B-Slim does anything at all. Been taking it for three weeks now,” commented another customer.
Too Many B-Slim User Complaints!
We found a number of user complaints posted on the web, some regarding B-Slim side effects. One person stated, “Gives me nausea and stomach pains, so I quite taking it.”
“This product does NOT help you lose weight. Just gives me gas,” mentioned another individual. 
Our intensive research has revealed that if there is one particular part of a weight-loss pill or diet program that is especially bothersome (fad supplement ingredients, too many user complaints, steep price tag) the probability of real success is low. In other words, if B-Slim does lead to a lot of unhappy customers this could be a serious issue.
The Science – “Any Clinical Proof?”
For us at DietSpotlight, we prefer to see some real science that supports the diet product. In regards to B-Slim, it’s nice to see that this supplement contains Green Tea, which can help boost metabolism. However, each serving only provides 10 milligrams, which is not enough to make a real difference. The primary ingredient found in B-Slim is Apple Cider Vinegar, which has not been proven to help with fat loss. 
The Bottom Line – Does B-Slim Work?
Now the moment you’ve been waiting for: our bottom line on B-Slim. First off, we like that this diet supplement contains herbal ingredients and there are some positive customer comments posted on the official website. Then again, we have some reservations because it’s not really supported by any clinical trials. Also, we’re concerned about the fads used in this product, as well as the negative user reviews we found online. 
If you’d like to shed more pounds, then we encourage you to go with a product that contains clinically tested ingredients, is easy to purchase online and is supported by numerous positive customer reviews.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. This supplement uses a proprietary blend of four key ingredients, which have been shown in documented clinical testing to help accelerate fat loss and ignite metabolism. We have not found much talk of unpleasant side effects and dieter comments around the web reveal people are seeing substantial results.
The makers of Leptigen are so satisfied with their product they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is a good sign.

B-Slim: What You Should Know
According to the official website for B-Slim, it is a weight loss system that will revolutionize the 21st century. Employing medical discoveries termed cutting edge, the manufacturer's own research division has come up with a combination of scientifically formulated ingredients that promise to give the consumer exactly the kind of vitamins and minerals they need to lose weight without dieting, and to banish between meal cravings. B-Slim offers to provide the user with a fast acting, completely safe way to lose the weight you need to turn heads while eating the foods you love to eat.
There are a number of formulas on the market which add an array of herbal components, however the main ingredient seems to be Hydroxycitric acid (HCA).
B-Slim Product Features
B-Slim is an herbal product that is intended to be part of an overall weight management program including exercise and careful eating. The ingredients in B-Slim are promised to reduce appetite, control craving, eliminate bloating, improve digestion, increase fat metabolism, regulate blood-sugar level, and relieve constipation, as well as giving the user more attention, improved energy, and a renewed sense of confidence. It should be noted that although the official website references clinical studies to back up these claims, those studies seem to have been done by the company itself. B-Slim can be purchased as both a powder which can be mixed with water, or in capsule form. Neither the official website or any other online sites where the product is available offers free samples of the product, although the official site does offer a money back guarantee.
- B-slim comes with a 30 day, money-back guarantee.
- The official website for B-Slim features positive customer testimonials.
- B-Slim can be purchased on a number of herbal medicine sites in both powder and capsule form.
- The main ingredient in B-Slim, HCA, has no clinical trials to back up its claims of weight loss.
- B-Slim offers no free trial offer.
- B-Slim should not be taken by pregnant or breastfeeding women.
- B-Slim does not contain any proven fat burner or appetite suppressant.
- Some forms of B-Slim come with a suggestion that additional supplements be taken for best results.
B-Slim is one of many diet and weight loss products which offer a wide array of promised results without objective research to back up those claims. While B-Slim has the advantage of its own official website there is very little actual information given there as to the complete list of ingredients and exactly how they aid in weight loss. In addition, a number of herbal sites where B-Slim is available suggest that the product be taken with additional supplements to keep blood sugars levels normal, reason enough to be cautious before trying this product. With other safer, more researched weight control products readily available the consumer would be wise to skip B-Slim altogether.
