BIOptimax Review - 5 Things You Need to Know


Looking at some diet products can be painful, especially if there’s no scientific backing for the formula. Let’s find out if BIOptimax is in this group. We decided to conduct an in-depth review, scrutinizing the ingredients, side effects, clinical studies and level of customer care. We additionally examined countless dieter comments from all over the web. Lastly, we compacted all of the facts to give you the info you need.

What You Need To Know

First off, BIOptimax is marketed as a “24/7 nutritional supplement” that suppresses appetite and burns off excess body fat. It can be taken one to three times a day and is suitable for women and men of all body types. As for the key ingredient used in this diet product, it is hoodia gordonii. According to the bottle, you can shed up to four pounds in only two days. There are no stimulants used in BIOptimax pills. This is a South African cactus plant extract that contains P57 (a molecule that is supposed to make you feel full). The cost is $50 per bottle.

This weight-loss product was first released back in 2010 and it does not contain any harsh stimulants. Some customer reviews are posted online for this diet pill and no prescription is needed to acquire this supplement, but read on…

Fad Diet Ingredient – “Be Aware?”

The first thing we look at with supplements like this is the formula. BIOptimax ingredients may not be as strong as the dieter would like. “BIOptimax only contains hoodia gordonii,” says our Research Editor. “If you are waiting to lose weight with this one, you may be disappointed.”

According to one customer, “I have been taking it almost a week now and have not lost a pound yet. I think it is a scam!”

Another user commented, “Sorry guys, I have been on this for a month and have lost ziltch! nada! don’t waste your money.”

Customer Complaints – “Too Many!”

We found quite a few user complaints and negative responses posted online for BIOptimax pills. One dieter stated, “I have also gained about 7 pounds in 5 days after taking this product. Do not buy this.”

“I have taken it for about 5 days now and have gained about 9 pounds…it is ridiculous. It increased my hunger,” said another customer.

After doing plenty of research, we’ve concluded that if there is an individual facet of a diet pill or fat-loss program that is very difficult or concerning (a painful/difficult exercise routine, too many customer complaints, fad weight-loss ingredients) the real chances of long-term success are very little. This means if BIOptimax causes disappointment, this could be a big problem.

The Science – “Effective?”

While doing some online research, we have realized that there is no real science provided to back BIOptimax diet pills. No clinical studies are presented at all. We at DietSpotlight need to see some published support that proves BIOptimax actually helps with weight reduction or we simply can’t recommend the supplement.

The Bottom Line – Does BIOptimax Work?

Well now, are we racing around trying to find this on shelves? Although it’s nice to see that BIOptimax uses a natural key ingredient, we wouldn’t feel comfortable encouraging you to purchase this supplement for weight-loss. First off, it has not been proven to help with fat reduction. Secondly, there is no longer an official website found for BIOptimax pills. Also, you are very unlikely to get a refund if this diet aid does not work as claimed.

If you want to shed more pounds and see faster weight-loss results, we recommend you select a diet formula that is both safe and contains key ingredients that are backed by clinical studies.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Dietspotlight Burn. This weight-loss formula uses a blend of four proven ingredients that have been shown in published scientific studies to help ignite metabolism and enhance fat loss results. We can’t pinpoint any negative discussion of side effects and customer reviews posted on the web express people are seeing excellent results.

Also, the makers of Dietspotlight Burn are so confident in their product they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is a good sign.

  •  Hated the product.
    harry Joseph (Verified User)

    Please stay away from this company !
    They just another of the rip-off companies that are out to take advantage of the elderly and the sick but they do it with a smile. BIOptimax sent me a leeter explaining the benefits of their Krill oil capsules. They pretented to be this progressive company that was only trying to help me out. Suffering from severe arthritis i fell for the line so I ordered an initial introductory bottle of krill oil. Next thing I know they billed me 2 months later for a three month supply of krill oil. The next month they billed my credit card again. I wanted to stop this madness so i returned the package hoping for a refund that never came. I called Optimax customer service more than 10 times but each time I would get the run-around from. This tell allot about a company when they are hard-pressed for a refund of a measly $50. I say STAY AWAY. They are another oone of the Mafia backed companies that are out to take adantage of the sick and the elderly, beware.

  • any other method

    is there any other method of paying other than credit card system

    Kelli (Verified User)

    I have been taking the bioptimax acai product for over a month. I have been eating more salads and fruit and hula hooping on top of being a stay home mom and watching twins-I haven’t lost one pound!!! I am VERY disappointed!! I’m about to call to send it back! DO NOT ORDER!!!!!!

  •  I have not lost a pound
    marcela (Verified User)

    I have not lost a pound, in fact I am constipated and gained at least 3lbs, I am sending it back!!

    • Marie

      It took 7 days to receive the product. I have been taking it for 4 days. I lost 2lbs. the second day and have also been constipated for the last 2 days. I have gained 3lbs. since I have been constipated. It is no longer eliminated waste. I am concerned and am thinking of returning the product. A cleanser is not suppose to cause constipation and now I am experiencing stomach cramps. I am not sure if I want to return it just yet. I am going to try to lighten my diet to see if the constipation will be eliminated.

  • berry capsule

    I am living in Kuwait so how can get Bioptimax acai berry capsule please give me reply

  •  Do exercise and avoid this product.

    To all who gained – what did you expected? To stuff yourselves with junk and fried food and magically lose weight? If you have even a small amount of common sense, you would understand that if everything would be the way they claim, there would be no Biggest Loser, Weight Watchers, LA Weight Loss or Jenny Craig. BiOptimax can HELP you lose weight but it’s not going to lose it for you. You have to do some work too, in fact – a lot of hard work. Watch what you eat, how much you eat, try to fit some exercise in your schedule, and if you do all this then you will succeed with or without BiOptimax.

  •  Hated the product
    Kate (Verified User)

    I ordered this and it took a very long time to be delivered. When it finally came I was very excited to try it since I believed I would lose 2 lbs in a day. I have taken it for about 5 days now and have gained about 7 pounds…it is ridiculous. It increased my hunger. I am so disappointed in this. Do not buy it.

  • shantel

    sorry guys, i have been on this for a month and have lost ziltch! nada! don’t waste your money.

  •  Saying about ingredients.

    I have ordered this product and have not yet received it. It hasn’t been that long yet though. I just want to remind everyone that we all need to add healthy diet and exercise to any weight loss program. That is the bottom line. Anything that “makes” you drop weight suddenly will also allow you to put it back on if you haven’t gone about it the right way. Also, I am very educated on the Acai berry and it is NOT to be marketed as a weight loss ingredient. It is the super food and is for overall better health. I would not bite on any of these other products that are promoting the Acai for weight loss.

      Don’t bother. It doesn’t work. I actually gained weight AND was eating sensibly and doing tons of work in the garden for a week.

    Michelle (Verified User)

    I order this product end of Dec/Jan and it only arrived 6 days ago..It took forever to get here. I am now on my 6th day and I am not seeing any great results yet..perhaps 2 lb.

    I read about this product in a Magazine and the girl who told her story said she didn’t exercise or change any of her eating habits…well I can’t see how that is true because even to loose 2 lb I had to change my eating habit, and even by eating a little more at the weekend 1 lb went back on. I am by no means a big person or hugely over-weight, I gave up smoking 2mths ago and gained over a stone in weight. I will continue on with this product, I can say from the cleansing point of few It does allow one to go regularly. 🙂

    I am hoping this product does what it says. Looking forward to great results this week and a boost in energy levels would be nice too.

    • Anonymous

      Day 9 and no change 🙁 even the cleansing has slowed right down…Very disappointed with this product. I am well aware how good Acai berry is but not from a weight point of view.
      It amazes how this girl lost 9 lbs in one week by eating whatever she wanted and not doing any form of exercise. She must have got paid some money to promote this product!

      This is my personal experience and a friend who has tried various versions has found the same thing. 🙁

      Good luck!
