Why are people talking about Herbal Body Wraps? We wanted to know exactly that, so we checked out the ingredients, side effects and clinical research. We also dug around for hundreds of user reviews to see how it works in real life. Then, we summarized it all to give you the bottom line.

Herbal Body Wrap Readers: Click here to find out why we're giving away samples of our product, Leptigen.

What are Herbal Body Wraps?

To start, Herbal Body Wraps are a means of compression to slim out the body. There are no ingredients in the actual material, but sometimes a cream is included to help facilitate results. You’re supposed to notice a decrease in circumference of the treated area. You can wear it under clothes and travel out of the house.

There are a multitude of companies that offer Herbal Body Wrap solutions. You can easily buy products online from trusted retailers. We like the ease of use and the small price tag, but read on…

Results – “Nothing About Weight-Loss”

First, the Herbal Body Wrap is not associated with weight-loss of any kind. “You may notice a slight change to the treatment area for a short while after using the wrap,” said our Research Editor. “But nothing that will last permanently.”

“This wrap did nothing for me,” was one experience.

A review said, “Didn’t work at all for me.”

We can’t avoid the positive reviews. Some actually saw results.

A user offered, “It actually did shrink my belly area quite a bit.”

Another claimed, “I don’t notice it drastically but I do notice it some bit due to the way some shirts seem to look a little less tight fitting.”

Burn – “The Cream or the Wrap?”

There are reports of Herbal Body Wrap side effects like burning. We’re rather certain this has to do with the cream, which may include hot pepper extract, in most cases.

One user said, “When you put on the wrap it does feel like it’s burning so if you have sensitive skin then I probably would not recommend this product for you.”

Another claimed, “I will say the wrap did seem to burn me a little but not to where I couldn’t handle it.”

Burning for some felt like warmth to others.

A customer said, “Not burning or uncomfortable, just warm.”

“I mostly didn’t know it was on, no tingling or burning sensation,” as another put it.

After years of research, there is clearly a connection between the smallest of things, like a slight burning, and a cut in your chances of success. If Herbal Body Wraps cause irritation, why would the dieter keep using them?

The Science – “Clinical Proof?”

If you’re looking for clinical research into Herbal Body Wraps you won’t find much. The hot pepper has been associated with a small increase in metabolism when taken orally. Plus, it can be used topically to fight muscle pain, but we don’t see a clear connection with weight-loss. The slimming effect is from the compression.

The Bottom Line – Do Herbal Body Wraps Work?

Are we already wearing our Herbal Body Wrap? Well, we like that this product is easy to use and it may help to temporarily shrink or smooth an area, but we are highly skeptical. There is no proof of actual weight-loss, the creams may burn skin and science just isn’t behind the claims.

Are you ready to get started on your weight-loss journey? We believe you can replace a product like Herbal Body Wraps with a clinically tested formula shown to actually help you reach your goals.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Leptigen. We like the simple, four-ingredient blend, that has been scientifically tested. User reviews show some amazing weight-loss results and there’s no burning associated with this one.

Also, we’re thrilled that Leptigen’s makers are so confident in the formula that they’re offering a Special Trial Offer.

I would like to know if the Xtreme wrap-Herbal body wrap gel works

Your Name

I bought into it 3 weeks ago. The first night no weight loss but the skin looked smoother. Additional days and nights used I didn’t loose any fat. You do sweat water weight which comes back.


I am on the first day after I put on the wrap on my arms, I have an excruciating abdominal [ain. Is this normal? if it is, somebody should make people aware before hand. I am in an awful pain. I had to take medication.


I had the same troublessad. After researching I’ve found that people who have been diagnosed with Celiac disease all have the same problem.

Brenda Ramsey

Do you have any information about “It Works Body Wrap”?


i got my first body wrap on mothers day and i been on my period and still on why is going on will me


I tried body wraps in the past. They do work. But you have to help with exercise, diet and drink lost of water.It is not a permanent result . So you need to keep doing it . If you need to loose 10 or less pounds, it is a good booster to reach your goal.


I tried this wrap and the next day experienced severe back pain and abdominal cramps. Does this happen to anyone else?


I used a wrap last Thursday night and on Saturday I started experiencing severe abdominal cramping. it’s as bad as contractions during childbirth. I haven’t been able to get out of bed. i’m dizzy and worried I have done damage to my kidneys, colon or gall bladder. if i’m not better tomorrow, i’m going to have to go in and get an abdominal ultrasound and see wtf is going on? now i’m reading others have had the same cramping sensations. please tell me how to make this pain stop. it is excruciating!!! im trying to drink more water as perhaps I have dehydration from the herbal wrap. help me!!!


I used a wrap and im having the most painful. xperience my tummy is cramping so bad is it normal?


how did you get it to stop as I am having terrible pain!?


I also have had two “gallbladder attack sensations” just four hours after applying the wrap.i dont have my gallbladder anymore but i know what gallbladder attack feels like, and this felt like one.


In the past year I have lost 69 lbs (thanks to lapband surgery). However, my skin is pretty loose on my body and I’d like to know about what Herbal Body Wraps can do for skin tightening. Can they help? If so, about how often would I need to do one?


JONI? Like the DSM?

Mary Sanchez

Can you do your under chin in a wra/p


anyone tried the “It Works” bodywrap? i imagine this would be considered an ‘herbal’ bodywrap. it’s hard to make sense of the reviews as they are mostly by folks that would be ‘rewarded’ in some way by the company.


Notice that only someone SELLING the wraps responds. And of course 100000 % positive!


Alice…. the company does not “reward”. I have lost 5.75″ after 2 wraps. it works! I love the wrap. easy to do & use. They have lots of products. Drop me a line wrapsbytonya.myitworks.com
