Activ8 X Review

Activ8 X Facts

  • Manufactured by AMAS Enterprises Limited, UK
  • Low returns and good customer feedback
  • Includes AVX Diet plan free with every order

We have recently been asked to take a look at Activ8 X diet drops by a visitor to our site. Having taken a brief look at this previously we thought it was about time to do a full in-depth review.

Manufactured by AMAS Enterprises Limited (part of the Anderson Mann Group), who are registered in Macclesfield, Cheshire in the UK, they product health products. Their “flag ship” product is Activ8 X which was launched in Europe in 2011 and they claim sold out within just two weeks.

The official website has recently been improved and much improved from the previously poorly constructed site that was cluttered with a number of basic spelling mistakes. All the basic and somewhat essential information is now available, such as the full “terms and conditions” page, so it’s a lot clearer now what the full conditions of sale and money-back guarantee is.

There is a direct sales line and contact form on the official site and there is an easy to use online chat facility so you can easily get in touch with them.

The diet drops are placed under the tongue using the pipette for one to two minutes to allow absorption through the membrane directly into your blood stream. The Activ8 X daily diet plan (AVX Diet Plan) on the official website outlines a comprehensive eating plan thats easy to follow. Having said that you can use the drops with other popular diet plans such as Atkins, GI Diet or South Beach Diet.

For those vegetarians or vegans you will be glad to know that the diet drops are suitable.

What Does Activ8 X Claim To Do?

This supplement claims to use brand new drop technology to deliver 21 clinically proven weight loss ingredients. Not only is Activ8 X simple to use but can be used with any diet plan of choice.

The manufacturer goes on to claim the benefits of the diet drops include:

  • The drops go directly into your system for extra powerful & swift results
  • Weight loss is achieved in the right way so it’s easier to maintain after your diet has ended
  • Does not contain any caffeine or unnatural ingredients making it a clean safe slimming aid

What is the AVX Diet Plan?

AVX Diet PlanAs is typical with diet drops, and the same here, you get a free diet plan included that is recommended to follow. This is called the AVX Diet Plan and is a comprehensive 64-page plan that teaches a long-­term, sustainable approach to healthy eating.

Heavily tested alongside Activ8 X Drops by volunteers over a 6 month period this plan has been shown to work and provide sensible and meaningful weight loss.

Alongside the plan, customers receive free access to the AVX members area where lots of recipes, tips and general advice is available.

So What Is Activ8 X and What Are The Ingredients For Activ8 X?

Although the website states are 10 clinically proven ingredients there are actually 21 ingredients in these diet drops. How these ingredients promote weight loss is outlined on the “how it works” page.

Let’s take a look in more detail at the ingredients:

  • Capsicum: Extracted from the Chilli pepper and responsible for the spicy taste and red colour. It is said to increase the bodies core temperature in order to boost metabolism.
  • Green Tea Extract (EGCG): Another very popular weight loss ingredient and for good reason. Evidence suggests that along with a number of health benefits weight loss is one of them. A certain amount and type of green tea has been shown to increase metabolism and promote fat burning.
  • Chromium: What is probably the most popular ingredient found in many diet pills as it’s said to help burn and boost energy levels. The National Institute of Health did some in depth research into ALL the published studies claiming Chromium can help lose fat and came to this conclusion:

Chromium supplements are sometimes claimed to reduce body fat and increase lean (muscle) mass. Yet a recent review of 24 studies that examined the effects of 200 to 1,000mg a day of chromium (in the form of chromium picolinate) on body mass or composition found NO significant benefits and

In several studies chromium’s effects on body weight and composition may be called in to question

  • Grapefruit Powder: Soluble fiber that is said to have powerful detoxifying and health properties.
  • Pyruvate: Has been said to aid in the conversion of sugar and starches into energy to increase the availability of energy and promote metabolism. Some evidence to support these claims has shown supplementation of high amounts (around 5gms per day) has not shown any significant change in body composition or exercise performance.
    Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15797672
  • Garcinia: Dried fruit rind of Garcinia cambogia that contains hydroxycitric acid (HCA) that has been used for centuries in Southeast Asia to suppress appetite.
  • Grape Seed Extract: Derived from grape seeds and has large amounts of Vitamin E, linoleic acid and resveratrol. Evidence to suggest it may be beneficial for heart related conditions, such as heart disease, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
    Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grape_seed_extract
  • African Mango: Derived from the seeds of the Irvingia Gabonensis with two trials that have shown the link between African Mango and weight loss. In one study the average weight loss of those taking African Mango was 28lbs compared to 1.5lbs in the placebo group.

After looking at the “clinical studies” page we managed to find the other two ingredients, these are:

  • Panax Ginseng: A slow growing plant that grows in the Northern Hemisphere. Said to be able to increase energy, as it is a mild stimulant. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ginseng
  • Beta-alanine: A non-essential amino acid commonly found in diet drops. Suggested to increase sport performance by delaying lactic acid build up during exercise.

So What Does All This Mean?

Activ8 X has a few promising ingredients seen in other approved diet pills but there is no indication of the quantities on the official website. That said, the AVX Diet Plan provided alongside the diet drops gives consumers a comprehensive and sensible diet that’s easy to follow.

Does Activ8 X Have Any Side Effects?

The good news is there is no caffeine in the drops so you’re unlikely to suffer from jittery side effects. If taken in the recommended dosage, it’s unlikely that any of the ingredients in these drops will cause any negative side effects.

Caution: You’re advised to seek professional medical advice if suffering from a pre-existing medical condition. As with most diet pills you should avoid taking if pregnant or a breastfeeding mother.

Any Activ8 X Reviews From Customers?

We were pleasantly surprised to see a number of positive customer testimonials on the official website and on a few independent testimonial sites. Unlike many testimonials found on other diet drop websites, Activ8 X customers include full names, where they are from and a picture. The testimonials have also been independently verified by a 3rd party testimonial verification service (provencredible.com).

We should mention that customers who send in a review or feedback can receive discounts on future orders.

Where Can I Buy Activ8 X?

Activ8 X diet drops appear to only be available online from the official website. With 1 month’s supply costing £49.95 to 6 month supply costing £199.99, free shipping is available on all orders with only Paypal accepted for online payment. There is the option to pay via cheque or postal order though, a rarity these days.

Each order comes with the free and comprehensive AVX Diet Plan.

What About a Guarantee?

There is a 200-day money-back guarantee, one of longest guarantees we have seen to date! You do have to use the drops for at least 10 days after which the manufacturer claims you’re entitled to money-back.

Watchdog Verdict

We have seen so many diet drops that it’s hard not to approach this review with some bias. Even still we have to say we are impressed with Activ8 X.

The drops on there own maybe similar to some other companies, but the AVX Diet Plan is incredibly detailed and value for money (even on its own!). The company have a good standing and coupled with a VERY low return rate then we can see how Activ8 X can live up to its claims.

Whilst initially concerned by the the “independent testimonials” found on similar looking independent sites, there are a significant number of positive customer testimonials available.

The guarantee looks great too, offering a solid 200-day money-back guarantee, one that is one of the longest in the industry.

If you’re looking for an diet drop that comes with a sensible and varied diet plan then Activ8 X could be the product for you.

    I’ve used these.. they work. Bottom line.

  2. kate says:

    i have used these drops and not always stuck to under 1200 calories ,taken regular exercise and have lost two stone the first time i used them.and a stone and a half so far in two months

  3. Maureen says:

    I used these drops for 5 months and I can tell you they do work. I lost 5 stone (from 13st to just under 8st). The problem is people expect miracles. They think the drops will work alone without counting calories and regular exercise. I’m sorry but there isn’t anything legal that does this! If you want to take the drops, a lot of dedication with diet and exercise, then you will see results, it just depends on how committed you are. They are not a miracle product but they Do work. I was alway hungry on my diet and the drops helped curb my appetite. I’m shocked to see negative reviews! Really it doesn’t surprise me, as I got a friend of mine them who continued eating curries, greasy food, chocolate, and didn’t exercise. She was sad she didn’t lose weight?? Really??

  4. Vicki says:

    I took activ8 for 2 days lost 6 pounds but my blood pressure has gone up. Has anyone had similar side affects as im not sure if its a coincidence or not. As i really want to carry on taking the drops. Some one please help :(

    • Tere says:

      Vicki – I’m thinking of buying activ8 but was a bit worried about your comment about your blood pressure – did you find out if this was caused by the activ8? Were you also on a diet when you lost the weight? 6lb seems an awful lot of weight to lose so quickly – I only really want to lose a stone overall, but need some help in getting started I think:)

  5. Shannon says:

    I’ve heard great things about Activ8 X so I am giving it a try. The shipping took 2 weeks, but I received it yesterday. Today is my first day. I noticed that both times I took them I got a headache, but it didn’t last long. It didn’t bother me much.

  6. Solange says:

    Hi all,
    Any of you is in the US? I just got my Active8X and started my diet yesterday but have lots of questions. One of them is, any of you have good ideas for lunchtime? I ask because the only time I have to eat it is while driving from one job to the other. It means that I can only eat sandwiches or puréed soup. Do you think that is ok?
    Please let me know if you are here. Best to all

  7. Shannon says:

    Well today has been 10 days, which is when they guarantee weight loss. I have lost……… nothing! Sigh. I’m not losing faith yet though… I really, really hope they work for me soon.

    • Raisa says:

      Hi,
      Any updates on the weight loss? Have you changed your diet at all and doing any exercises? Would love to know, I am thinking of purchasing this product.

      • Shannon says:

        Day 20 and I lost 3 pounds. I only needed to lose about 8 to be in a healthy BMI so 3 is not bad. I will take it. It’s better than nothing. And no, I do not exercise (which would help, I know, I just hate it too much). I am not giving up yet. We’ll see what I’m at after a full month.

        • Shannon says:

          Been a month. I gained 2 lbs back for a total of 1 lb lost. Not sure if I personally endorse this product. It does not seem to really work, at least not for me.

          • Kimko says:

            Hi Shannon, I’m sort of with you on this – I only lost a total of 4lbs. I do watch what I eat and walk for at least 20 minutes a day (because like you, I am sort of on the fence with exercising.); I’m not sure it’s worth it for the money you pay.

  8. kay says:

    Hi todays my firsr day takeing active 8. I weighed in 12stone 2lbs. Went gym spinning and toneing class. Will update a week today of my progress

  9. kay says:

    Can some one please tell me. Can i take ali slimming pills along side active 8

    • Activ8 X Support says:

      Hi Kay, it should be fine to take Alli Slimming Pills along-side if you wish. However it would be wise to check with your GP first to be on the safe side.

  10. kay says:

    Hi sorry for the late update i now weigh 11stone 12lbs which is great. Ive been eating sensibly and been exercising 5 days a week. Will keep posting results

    • Kimko says:

      So what you are telling me is that you have lost 12lbs in just 8 days??? That doesn’t sound to healthy. Or, it just sounds a bit dodgy.

      • Kaitlyn says:

        She said she weighed 12 stone, 2 lbs before – since a stone is 14lbs, that’s the same as 11 stone, 16lbs. At the time of this posting she said she’s down to 11 stone, 12 lbs, so she lost a total of four pounds in eight days – still a lot, but not dodgy.

  11. kay says:

    Hi can you tell me can the drops be taken more than 3 times a day.

  12. Misha says:

    Hello all,

    I’m amazed to read about all of the pounds being shed in a matter of weeks so wanted to know if you are all doing lots of exercise and calorie counting to achieve this??? I’m more a moderate exercise kind of girl and I generally watch what I eat; will this work for me?

  13. kay says:

    Hi Misha i have found that with exercise you do tend to loose more weight. Ive dropped down to 11stone 9lbs this week. With 5 days exercising at the gym. It just wasnt possible with out active 8

    • Tina says:

      Kay, I’m in the U.S and am not clear as to what ” 11 stone 9lb ” means. I am considering this product but confused by # of lbs people are losing and the time its taking them. Not that I’m expecting a miracle, but I do need a boost to get me started. I have been stuck at a fluctuating 199 lb – 205 lb for about 3 yrs now with a starting weight of 240 lbs. I am very interested in the diet plan that is included, so any info you or anyone could give me would be very much appreciated.

  14. Aj says:

    I purchased the active 8 products about 2 years ago, at first i felt that my bp would go up, i lost some weight then i put it back on.

    I’m gong to place another order and fingers crossed- will update you on how it goes.

  15. lainey says:

    I have just received my Active 8,took first dose tonight.I have read some comments that some people find it tricky leaving it under the tongue,i found it fine, but did do it while l looking in the mirror so i could see how many drops i took..A bit confused on how many drops to take,so took in between them alll and has fifteen..will update next week on any weight loss..fingers crossed. :)

  16. TC says:

    Hi all,
    Glad to read all your comments. I received my order today and will begin the diet tomorrow . I shall keep you posted on how things evolve. Good luck guys!

  17. Nellse says:

    Does this pill give you energy as well or just curb appetite? And is this safe to use with a thermogenic like Lipo-6 UC? Thank you.

    • Activ8 X Support says:

      Hi Nellse, yes the product contains ingredients which will help to increase your metabolism which in turn will boost your energy levels. Yes it should be fine to use with that product as the ingredients of both products don’t appear to conflict.

  18. Carole says:

    Started taking the Active 8 x drops today, weighed in at 179lb, using them alongside the Slimming World Plan, more interested in whether these drops curb my sugar fixation as this is my downfall to weight loss, obsessed with chocolate, cakes and biscuits!

  19. Annie says:

    I’ve been taking these drops for a week now and have lost 6Ib. Very pleased!

  20. Anne says:

    I bought Activ8X around two months ago as I needed to lose some fat off my belly and hips before my holiday in Spain. I was planning on using the drops with the 5:2 Fast Diet but I really liked the look of the AVX Diet Plan which came with the Activ8 X drops, so I decided to use that instead. I have managed to lose most of the fat off my belly and hips so I’m feeling really confident about wearing my new binki’s on holiday :). Just arrived at my hotel now – can’t wait to hit the beach later!

  21. hisham says:

    can I take this with the xl.s medical ??? and is the xls medical good ??

  22. Anita says:

    Just waiting for my order to be delivered very excited need a committed diet regime because I have zero will power but my scales say 13 stone 5 lbs and that ain’t good. Will keep you updated x
