We’ve all struggled to find the right diet supplement, so we took the time to write one of our in-depth reviews about Herbex, examining the side effects, ingredients, clinical studies and customer care. Plus we focused on hundreds of dieter responses from the internet. Finally, we summed up all of the data and facts to give you the bottom line.

Herbex Readers: Click here to find out why we're giving away samples of our product, Dietspotlight Burn.

What is Herbex?

First off, Herbex is a supplement brand containing green tea, garcinia cambogia, black tea, cinnamon, capsicum frutescens, rooibos tea and astragalus membranaceus, among others. The product line includes Attack the Fat, Detox, Slimmers Tea and Fat Burn. The formulas are free of additives and harmful chemicals. They are supposed to help you lose weight. One benefit is the ease use.

The official website does not reveal when Herbex was founded, however, it mentions that this company ships internationally. Also, there are some success stories posted and contact information is provided, but read on…

Customer Complaints – “What’s The Talk?”

The first concern with Herbex ingredients were customer complaints. “The official website posts user testimonials, so one would think the supplement line is one of the best,” said our Research Editor. “But after a bit of digging, users painted a different picture.”

One customer complained, “I started using Herbex attack fat mix and two days later I developed rash.”

According to another user, “I’m on day 2 and I have really bad cramps and upset stomach and every time I eat I get sick.”

Side Effects – “Be Careful!”

Apparently Herbex diet products can lead to adverse reactions, which is not exactly what you’re looking for in a supplement. Trusted products offer results without many reports of side effects. One customer commented, “Hi, I have just started using Herbex, and I am also experiencing really bad cramps.”

“I started using the Herbex fat burning concentrate. After 2 days I now have the most severe stomach cramps EVER,” said another person.

Our research has revealed that if there is one small part of a diet supplement that’s negative, like mixed reviews, that can be enough to ruin your chances of long-term results. If Herbex supplements do cause adverse reactions and disappointed users, this could prove to be a serious issue.

The Science – “Any Proof?”

Herbex doesn’t provide clinical trial results for their diet products, based upon what we found on the official website. There’s green tea included in some of the supplement, shown to increase metabolism, but i doesn’t point toward these products. We at DietSpotlight need to see clear research that supports weight-loss claims and we just didn’t find that with this one.

The Bottom Line – Does Herbex Work?

OK, give me just one more second of your time. We are glad to see that Herbex included some natural ingredients and the favorable customer comments,  but the lack of solid science supporting weight-loss claims makes us hesitant about thus one. We’re also concerned about customer complaints and talk of negative side effects.

Are you a dieter looking to shed weight? Well, we suggest choosing a product with some clinically-tested ingredients and no mention of adverse reactions.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Dietspotlight Burn. This supplement uses four ingredients, some clinically-tested, and shown to help ignite metabolism and accelerate fat loss. Most users reported no side effects and user feedback found online shows people are seeing great results. We think that’s what dieters are really looking for in a weight-loss supplement.

Also, the makers of Dietspotlight Burn are so confident in this formula that they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is a great sign. You have nothing to lose but weight!

What You Should Know

Herbal medicine sometimes called by the name Herbalism is one of the oldest forms of healthcare around and has been used by many different cultures. 74 percent of prescription medicines are derived from herbs. Many people prefer to use natural herbs and botanicals to treat aliments and to lose weight. Natural herbs are considered to be safe and effective for weight loss and are used to boost metabolism, to control appetite and to aid digestion. Herbex claims to be totally natural and contains no chemicals, preservatives or additives. The company promotes a holistic approach to losing weight as well as support on an ongoing basis from their official website. In addition, Green Tea Hawaii comes in as another interesting product as it is a green tea juice instilled with antioxidants to boost energy levels.

List of Ingredients

According to the official website for Herbex, the formula is made with 33 herbs which have tried and tested.

Product Features

Herbex offers weight loss aids in several different formulas. They range from Slimming Original, Age Group Weight Loss, Boosters and Appetite Controllers. All are formulated to stimulate the metabolism, reduce the appetite, reduce water retention, increase energy levels, improve mood, detoxify the body, metabolize fat, aid digestion and work as a gentle laxative. There are no clinical studies published on the official website to substantiate these claims. Additionally there are no customer testimonials and no before and after photos of anyone who has successfully used the products for weight loss.

Losing weight is a challenge no matter what your age. Balancing family, school, work and career takes a toll on our bodies. Especially since most people seem to be consistently eating on the run. Poor nutritional choices and skipping meals have led to over eating, binge eating and eating disorders. Many seek to find the answer to our overweight society in a pill. Unfortunately one is yet to be discovered that will undo the effects that we all have brought upon ourselves through our over indulgent lifestyles. Dieters may want to keep on looking for that miracle or just button down and do the work that it takes to lose the weight. A balanced of fruits and vegetables, lean meats, whole grains, water and oh yes the dreaded exercise is what it will take to not only lose weight but keep it off for life. Give it a try. You just might succeed. But if not, you always have a safety net of other products that are worth the try. One such is Omni Diet that focuses on a holistic approach by encouraging users to eat 30% protein and 70% plant.

I have a big belly but I’m not a fat a person. Can i use Herbex just to loose my belly? and is it safe?


Hi Mulalo. All users are different and can experience different side effects; please refer to the Herbex official website to see if this product is safe for you.


I used Herbex drops years ago, and they worked for me. Now, I am 57 and have hereditary high BP , and I am on Warfarin after having pulmonary embolism after my hysterectomy. There are a lot of dont’s as far as my diet is concerned either way. As per Warfarin guidance – I should avoid things like vitamin K, however, I can have it in moderation, as long as it is approx. same qty per day, so my meds can be adjusted accordingly. Is it safe to drink just one cup of Herbex herbal tea , and have one helping of the cereal per day ?


Hi! For detailed product and usage instructions, please refer to the product’s official website for more information.


I started using herbex products a year ago but ensured I stick to the diet plan with very disciplined exercise regime. It worked like magic without any side effects. From 104kg to 94kg, a whopping 30kg gone. The trouble now is that people no longer recognise me. My skin has also improved tremendously. My energy levels are at their peak, mentally very alert. I never felt this good in my life. I am a living proof that Herbex works.


How long can i take herbex…cause its been five months using herbex nd there is no difference i do excersice almost everyday.


Hi Vinolia. Sorry to hear about your experience. You can refer to the Herbex official website to learn more how long it takes to see results.

Scorpio girl

hi all..from reading through all of your comments its obvious that there are alot of us wanting to lose extra weight. i am 1.7m tall and weigh around 63kg-my problem area is my thighs which is about 1 size bigger than my upper body. today i started using the Herbex berry concentrate which tastes great, so i know i will definitely finish the bottle. the bottle is 400ml and each dose is 25ml, which should be enough for 16 days. after my second glass, i have been to the loo about 4 times this morning (no1) and 1 No2, which is pretty normal for me, since i normally drink 2lt of water per day. i have had 2 provita toast thingies with peanut butter and a mug of coffee with milk and sweetner at 8am. its 10:30 now and i do not feel hungry or have any pains or aches but i do feel like i have alot of energy. i dont exercise but walk around 13500 steps a day. i also follow a low carb diet, since i have seen the weight pile on when i eat bread and rice.i am not aiming to change my food intake or increase my steps this month, so i can tell if the concentrate is working or not.i will update you all when i am finished with this bottle.


i have been using herbex syrup and tea for 2weeks now, i see no changes and it is not as laxative as it should be.


Your urine was smelling and concentrated because u were not drinking enough water. And for days you were still in the detoxification stage
