QuickSlim-30 Review - Does This Detox and Energy Booster Work?
No joke – over 50% of diet products simply don’t work. So what about QuickSlim-30? Well, we at DietSpotlight did one of our in-depth reviews, examining the ingredients, side effects, clinical research and customer-service quality. Then we focused on all sorts of user comments and remarks that are posted online. At this point, we summarized and compressed everything to give you the facts you need.
What is QuickSlim-30?
First of all, QuickSlim-30 ingredients are aloe vera, fo-ti, goji berries, reishi mushroom, spirulina, fructus mori, alisma, grape seed, green tea, sweet tea vine, hawthorn berries and lotus leaf. This over-the-counter supplement is claimed to flush out waste and toxins, boost energy levels, increase metabolism and circulation, elevate mood and help you drop two pounds per week. You simply take one capsule each morning before breakfast (with eight ounces of water). No special diet or exercise is mentioned.
It’s unclear when QuickSlim-30 pills were first released into the diet market. However, we did notice that the company behind this weight-loss product is Gold Vitamins (Gold Vision Inc.). You can purchase this formula conveniently online. There are even some before and after photos presented on the main website. Also, it contains various natural herbs, but read on…
Side Effects – “Concerned Yet?”
One issue we have is with QuickSlim-30 side effects. “After reading some customer feedback, it’s clear that this weight-loss supplement can lead to unwanted adverse reactions such as nausea, upset stomach, jitters, headache, fast heartbeat, sleeplessness and intestinal issues,” reported our Research Editor.
One user posted, “QuickSlim-30 makes me very nauseated and causes abdominal discomfort. No thanks.”
Then again, not all customers mentioned side effects. One person stated, “QuickSlim-30 does reduce my appetite. I snack less when taking this stuff.”
Another commented, “On the fence still. Been taking this supplement for about two weeks. Have not seen much results yet.”
Minimal Results – “Waste of Money?”
Another concern we have is with minimal weight-loss results. For instance, one customer said, “Not seeing any actual effects from QuickSlim-30 pills. Maybe this product just doesn’t work for me.”
However, a different user said this, “Not bad results from QuickSlim-30. I do have some minor side effects though.”
“This product makes me use the bathroom more. Not sure if that’s what it’s supposed to do. I will give it some time and see what happens,” mentioned another.
Our research has revealed if there is some particular part of a weight-loss supplement or diet program that is especially troublesome (side effects, minimal results, high price) the probability of long-term success is low. So, if QuickSlim-30 does in fact cause adverse reactions in a lot of people, this could be a serious problem.
The Science – “Any?”
At DietSpotlight, we need to see some actual science that backs up the diet product we’re reviewing. As for QuickSlim-30, this formula does contain some green tea, which may help boost metabolism. However, the actual amount used is not disclosed. Therefore, it could be quite minimal. Unfortunately, there are no clinical studies presented to support this weight-loss supplement.
The Bottom Line – Does QuickSlim-30 Work?
Okay, now the moment you’ve been waiting for. This is our bottom line on QuickSlim-30. To start, we like that this diet product contains herbal ingredients. It’s also nice to see that this weight-loss formula can be used anywhere. But we have some concerns about this supplement because it’s not backed by any actual science. Furthermore, we’re leery of the side effects it can cause.
If you’d really like to get started shedding some pounds, then we advise you to go with a diet product that does not cause any harmful effects, contains clinically tested ingredients for weight-loss and gives you plenty of bang for your buck.
Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Leptigen. Its formula is a proprietary blend of four key ingredients, which have been shown in published clinical research to help accelerate fat loss and kick-start metabolism. You should also know that we can’t find any negative user reviews, and the comments we found online indicate people are seeing great results. Plus, you don’t have to worry about harmful side effects.
The makers of Leptigen are so certain of their product they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is a good sign.
