With diet drops claiming to offer better absorption rates to deliver weight loss ingredients than traditional diet pills, we discover the real facts so you can make an informed decision.
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.
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:
As 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.
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:
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
After looking at the “clinical studies” page we managed to find the other two ingredients, these are:
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.
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.
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.
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.
There is a 35-day money-back guarantee. You do have to use the drops for at least 10 days after which the manufacturer claims you’re entitled to money-back.
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 35-day money-back guarantee.
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.
