Via Ananas Review - Does This Weight-Loss Supplement Work?
Diet products either work or they don’t. Period. Let’s find out which one Via Ananas is. We decided to turn our attention toward ingredients, side effects, clinical research and customer service quality. Additionally, we sorted through hundreds of user reviews and comments. Then, we condensed and summarized to give you the info you need.
What is Via Ananas?
Via Ananas is a fat burner containing pineapple, microcrystalline, cellulose, silica and magnesium sterate. The recommended serving is two capsules per day, supposedly resulting in weight-loss. The blister packs makes it easy to take anywhere.
There’s no information as to when Via Ananas hit the shelves, but the parent company, Stambouli Enterprise, has been operating for more than 40 years. The supplement is sold through multiple online retailers. We like the longevity of the company and that is contains some natural ingredients, but read on…
Side Effects – “Not So Good?”
The first concern was Via Ananas side effects. “When the main ingredient is pineapple, one thinks is basically safe,” said our Research Editor. “But if the formula causes negative reactions, dieters may simply walk away from it.”
“My mouth became dry and I had an upset stomach,” stated a user.
”I did start to get a little moody while taking it,” said a consumer.
Some customers tried the supplement and didn’t experience adverse reactions.
“This is my 5th day using Via Ananas and I am not having any symptoms or side effects,” commented a dieter.
“No side effects so far, everything is good,” stated another.
Ineffective Ingredients – “No Results?”
One of the concerns mentioned by customers in the forums was the ineffectiveness of Via Ananas ingredients. ”No changes at all in my appetite or my weight”, said one dieter.
“I tried it and didn’t see any real differences in my weight,” stated a user.
“Tried it for a week and it’s useless,” reported a customer.
While some customers didn’t like the lack of results, we found some users noticed the effects.
One user said, “I tried it and it works. Lost some weight”
“Pretty good product, I noticed some results,” commented another.
We’re researched thousands of supplements and have found that all it takes is something minute, like ineffective ingredients, to limit the chances of long-term success. If the formula in Via Ananas doesn’t produce results, it’s a bit concerning.
The Science – “Not Solid”
When we visited the official website, we found information relating to the benefits of Via Ananas, but no scientific research proving the supplement helps with weight-loss. There are studies about the compound found in pineapples, bromelain. According to Department of Pathology, Duke University Medical Center, “the potential efficacy of bromelain…has not yet been tested rigorously.”
At DietSpotlight, research is a critical part of the review process. If there are no studies, we become skeptical about it.
The Bottom Line – Does Via Ananas Work?
So here’s our final thoughts on Via Ananas. Well, we like the longevity of the company and that we found some favorable customer comments, but the lack of scientific research makes us a bit skeptical about this one. We’re also concerned about customers talking about negative side effects and a formula not producing results.
Are you wanting to jump start your weight-loss journey? If so, consider a supplement containing some clinically-tested ingredients and no reports of adverse reactions.
Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Dietspotlight Burn. The supplement contains some clinically-tested ingredients and has been shown to work. We couldn’t find customers talking about negative side effects, but we did find that some are seeing great results.
Plus, the makers of Dietspotlight Burn are so confident in their product they’re offering new customers a Special Trial Offer. This is always something we like to see.

What You Should Know
Via Ananas is a diet pill with a very interesting name. We were able to find the Chinese slimming pill on various websites, a step in the right direction as Chinese diet products are often hard to find. There is just one ingredient in the diet pill – pineapple. There is no information about how pineapple is supposed to increase weight loss on the official website. We also found no testimonials from dieters who’d lost weight using Via Ananas. We did find an official website, list of ingredients, directions for use and a contact page for the company behind the product.
List of Ingredients
- Magnesium Stearate
Pineapple, the sweet fruit from Hawaii, is more than just a tasty food product. According to the makers of Via Ananas, pineapple can also be used as a weight loss ingredient. We know pineapple contains quite the punch of vitamin C, but vitamin C does not boost metabolism or reduce hunger. Bromelain appears to be the active weight loss element in pineapple. Bromelain breaks down protein and acts as a digestive aid. As digestion improves the body is better prepared to break down foods, absorb all the necessary healthy nutrients and flush out (thanks to the high fiber content) the remaining food stuffs without storing it as fat for later use.
We stumbled upon a Via Ananas website by Via Tonic that claimed that company was the original creator of the supplement. There are counterfeits, according to Via Tonic, that may not contain the same ingredients as the original product.
- Ingredients for Via Ananas are listed on multiple websites.
- The product can be purchased online, though not from trusted websites.
- Pineapple is a healthy addition to any weight loss diet.
- Pineapple has no fat burning effects.
- There are multiple companies selling products with the same name.
- We have no idea how much pineapple is supplied per dose.
Via Ananas is not your average weight loss supplement. The active ingredient is pineapple, supplying Bromelain. Bromelain aids in digestion so the body stores less fat, but you cannot expect to lose weight simply by taking the supplement. You need to eat right and exercise. If you choose a supplement to boost metabolism, make sure the ingredients are safe and proven to have some positive impact on weight loss. We cannot say, without doubt, that Via Ananas is safe or effective.
