Slendatrim Facts

  • Marketed by Vitegrity based in Florida, US
  • Each bottle of SlendaTrim contains 180 capsules
  • SlendaTrim contains vitamins and minerals

SlendaTrim is a US diet pill marketed by Vitegrity who are based in Florida. The pill is manufactured in the USA and contains 100% natural ingredients. It comes with some powerful and punchy advertising but despite that customer feedback is very hard to find.

If you are among the billion people across the world who are overweight or obese, a diet pill like SlendaTrim is a tempting proposition.

According to the SlendaTrim advertising, this supplement is the;

All Natural Number One Rated Thermogenic Fat Burning & Weight Loss Compound Available on Today’s Market

It is aimed at people who “need to lose serious weight and achieve serious change” not just shed a few extra pounds.

This supplement includes a blend of appetite suppressant ingredients including Hoodia and Glucomannan as well as natural antioxidant rich green tea extract, vitamins, minerals and more that may improve health and have an effect upon your metabolism.

Essentially, the basic principle of SlendaTrim is that it will help you burn fat and at the same time suppress your appetite so targets two of the major weight issues.

According to the advertising, SlendaTrim uses five key features to help you lose weight:

  • Burn away unsightly fat
  • Feel satisfied with less food
  • Boost your drive and energy levels
  • FDA approved and made in the USA
  • Guarantee or your money back

How to Use SlendaTrim

To use SlendaTrim take 3 capsules twice daily with a full glass on water. Take once in the morning after breakfast and another three capsules prior to your afternoon meal.

(We are not sure if they mean at lunchtime or in the early evening, as we have never actually met anyone who has a regular afternoon meal.)

SlendaTrim provide plenty of satisfied customer testimonials on the website plus numerous images of thin people and flat stomachs. Although this supplement is not gender specific, it is aimed primarily at a female market judging by the images.

In fact, the only image of a man on the website is a picture of a fully clothed male doctor in a white coat. Not very impressive.

We are not so sure about the FDA Approved statement either. To our knowledge the FDA do not approve OTC diet pills and the small print on the foot of the site clearly states;

Representations regarding the efficacy and safety of Slendatrim have not been scientifically substantiated or evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Vitegrity are based in Florida and according to the website are a family business but provide no further details about this point.

The company address is:
970 Lake Carillon Dr.
Suite 300
St. Petersburg,
Fl 33716
888-875-4789

There do not appear to be any issues or complaints about Vitegrity from customers. Worryingly before you see the price of the supplement on the product website, you have to submit your full contact details including email and phone number.

This gives the impression that SlendaTrim may be a scam auto bill company but reading through the lengthy terms and conditions, this does not appear to be the case.

However, this feature is very annoying and will put off potential customers.

Slendatrim Concerns:

  • Advertising seems far-fetched
  • Advertised guarantee seems unlikely to be honoured
  • No reason why this product only targets people who are extremely overweight

What Does Slendatrim Claim To Do?

According to the advertising, SlendaTrim is a “Confidence, Energy, Fat Burning Thermogenic Booster”
that will deliver;

Mind Blowing Results

You are “Invited to Try Today, Results in 60 Days Or You Don’t Pay” We like the sound of a good guarantee so this is a great point in SlendaTrim’s favour.

The advertising is aimed at you if you are seriously overweight.

If you are within 5 pounds of your perfect weight, hey, SlendaTrim may not be the right product for you. SlendaTrim is for those who need to lose serious weight and achieve serious change

So What Is Slendatrim and What Are The Ingredients For Slendatrim?

SlendaTrim is a fat burner combined with an appetite suppressant. Sometimes diet pills with this dual action contain high amounts of stimulants, which suppress your appetite as a side effect. However, SlendaTrim uses ingredients that specifically target this issue.

Although the SlendaTrim advertising does not provide ingredients amounts, this information is available on the product’s label and is per serving size of 3 capsules.

  • Irvingia Gabonensis (AKA African mango seeds) (150mg): This fibre rich natural seed extract has shown some good effects for weight loss when added to diet and studies suggest it may help reduce cholesterol levels.
  • Glucomannan (300mg): Water soluble dietary fibre sometimes used as an emulsifier and food thickener and in more recent years as an aid to counter obesity. Glucomannan swells up in the stomach and creates feelings of satiety. Although further research is required, it looks to be a promising ingredient. Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6096282
  • Chromium (200mcg): Trace mineral present in a normal diet and here in safe quantities. Research has shown that high quantities of chromium can cause dangerous side effects.
  • Hoodia (200mg): Once considered the answer to obesity, the appetite suppressing qualities of Hoodia have now been discredited. It has undergone extensive medical research and is proven to be ineffective for weight loss. May cause side effects. To see more about Hoodia take a look at our investigation.
  • Green Tea (300mg): Green Tea is a source of antioxidants including ECGC a potent polyphenol. . It may have numerous medical benefits. Reports have shown that green tea extract intake is associated with increased weight loss due to stimulating thermogenesis. However, health advice is to drink as tea to achieve the best results. Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17201629
  • Citrus Aurantium (10% total amines 35mg) (350mg): This stimulant raises the heart rate and increases blood pressure. It is believed to stimulate the breakdown of fat and boost the metabolism but there is a lack of clinical evidence to prove this.
    It should definitely be avoided if you suffer from any heart related health conditions. Take a look at our Citrus Aurantium article here
  • Bioperine (3mg): Patented black pepper extract that is used to enhance the effects of other ingredients
  • Calcium 500mg: Essential mineral that is necessary for life and makes up your bone structure and teeth. Calcium is found in a healthy diet such as milk and vegetables.
    Medical advice is that no more than 600mg should be taken as a daily supplement because excess calcium causes the body to absorb less.
    The advice is to eat plenty of calcium rich foods throughout the day. This 400mg a day is in excess of health guidelines. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calcium

Other ingredients include a number of Vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12 and D3).

So What Does All This Mean?

SlendaTrim contains some healthy ingredients that may have some benefit to weight loss. We like the fact that it contains a range of vitamins and unlike many other supplements chromium is here in trace quantities, which is safe. However, the Hoodia content is a matter for concern as is the high dosage of calcium. In addition, this supplement contains Citrus Aurantium, which is known to have dangerous effects upon the heart and blood pressure.

Despite these concerns, the Citrus Aurantium content is actually quite low and overall this supplement looks safer than we expected.

Does Slendatrim Have Any Side Effects?

We have been unable to find any independent customer reviews so we cannot bring you any true-life experiences.

However Hoodia is known to cause nausea, vomiting and skin irritations in some people and even small amounts of Citrus Aurantium may cause elevated blood pressure and heart rate if you have these sorts of health issues.

Overdoing the calcium can cause constipation and bloating but taking the supplement with food may minimise these effects.

Caution: Avoid if pregnant or breast-feeding. Do not take if you suffer from a heart related or blood pressure health condition. If you are on medication, seek the advice of your doctor before you take SlendaTrim in case of drug interactions.

Any Slendatrim Reviews From Customers?

The only SlendaTrim reviews we could find were on the SlendaTrim website so we cannot guarantee that all of these are independent and we do not know if the company have chosen to show only positive reviews, which is likely. Both men and women seem fairly happy with this product.

Elsewhere things are not as straight forward. SlendaTrim is on sale from Amazon, for example but nobody has appeared to try it.

So Does Slendatrim Work?

We think it may work a bit and it may help you lose some weight. You may find that Glucomannan suppresses your appetite and the pill may have some effect upon you metabolism. Results are not likely to be earth shattering but yes, it may do something.

We have certainly seen a lot worse.

Where Can I Buy Slendatrim?

You can buy SlendaTrim direct from the product website but you may need to give all your details before they allow you to see the price, which is annoying.

The basic kit costs $39.97 and will last a month. This includes one container of SlendaTrim (180 capsules) plus a 60 capsule bottle of Vitegrity green tea supplement.

Two months supply – two containers (180 capsules) of SlendaTrim plus I free bottle of green tea costs $75.94.

The best value deal costs $159.88 and is four bottles (plus 2 free) of SlendaTrim, one 60 capsule container of Green tea and includes free shipping to US addresses.

Sometimes other bonus gifts and special offers are available too.

Standard shipping (5-7 business days) is $7.95.
Priority shipping (2-3 business days) is $14.95.
Next Day (next business day) is $29.99
International is $29.99

As well as the USA, the company ship to: Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and United Kingdom.

You can also buy SlendaTrim via Amazon.com where one bottle of 180 capsules costs $39.97.

What About A Guarantee

Yes, there is a 60-day money back guarantee on offer. However when we looked into this on the website terms and conditions, the page was unavailable so don’t hold your breath on this one. Elsewhere there was zero information about how to claim your guarantee and sadly we don’t believe the company will honour it.

Watchdog Verdict

There are actually some good points about SlendaTrim. We like some of the ingredients and we like the way they have combined the fat burning idea with an appetite suppressant. It is unlikely to be “mind-blowing” but it may assist with modest weight loss.

We are not impressed with the offer of a guarantee that seems unlikely to be honoured and not so keen on the style of the website. There is just something about it that looks like a scam and it is probably putting people off.

We also did not appreciate having to search for a full ingredients profile or being unable to see the price without entering our details.

It is frustrating because it is close to being good. The price is reasonable and you can sometimes receive added freebies, which is always welcome. If Vitegrity would just cut out some of their wild claims, sort out the guarantee, and drop a few of the ingredients perhaps we would have had a winner on our hands.

    Great Review I was just about to purchase this product until I found this awesome review

  2. Matt Williams says:

    I am very disappointed with this Slendatrim, this product is awful, leaves and awful taste in your mouth in about 30 minutes after taking it my skin becomes flush and burns. I contacted the company about getting a refund with no luck :( I have filed a complaint with my credit card company. Buyer beware of this product

  3. Sandy Ellis says:

    Slendatrim is not a good product it screwed up my menstrual cycle for two months and that wasn’t the worst of it my breath was awful while I was on this product. It might be helpful for men but it truly is not a good product for women

  4. Terri James says:

    It has done nothing for me but tear my stomach up!! I quit taking it because I can’t work while taking Slendatrim, I would be setting on the bowl all day. I can not understand how this stuff is allowed to be sold to people.

  5. Julie Paulson says:

    A complete waste of time and money. It did nothing it claimed to do.
    I’m so dissapointed. I took the pills just as prescribed. Lived on salads, yougart and fruit well under 1200 calories. Joined a gym and exercised 2 xs a week and didn’t loose a single pound. I also swim everyday. I am in the process of fighting the company about getting my money back, so far no luck..

  6. Monica Brandon says:

    Have seen no improvement. And I am not a lazy slob hoping this was the miracle pill to help me lose weight while sleeping. I exercise and try to easy right And still didn’t notice anything except Explosive Diarrhea while taking Slendatreim . Total Waste Of Money.

  7. James Fatpaccioli says:

    absolutely the worst thing ever. gained 11 pounds in two weeks taking Slendatrim exactly how it is prescribed. also had the worst breakout ever in my life. almost two months later, i am still trying to get my skin cleared up. been 12 days since they received my return. was told i would be refunded in 15 -20 days from the day they received it. called again today and they said it would be another 25 – 30 days before i would be refunded. What a joke

  8. Janet Keane says:

    Firstly I did not lose any weight but secondly the side effects are intolerable. Due to the caffeine I have palpitations all the time, tremors, anxiety and nervousness ,dry mouth all the classic side effects of too much caffeine plus awful smelly painful gas. I have stopped taking them, a waste of money.

  9. Dawn Glenman says:

    The products is useless, and the side effects are the worst. I think Slendatrim puts your health at risk.

  10. Suzzy Franks says:

    This product is awful. Waste of money and effort. When I was using this product every day I would get terrible migraine headaches and diarrhea. I kept thinking it was caused by something else so I gave up caffeine, changed my diet and exercise routine but the headaches persisted. Finally I stopped using Slendatrim and the headaches went away. I thought it was just me and gave it to my husband to try and the same thing happened to him. So again we gave it to my father in law and he got headaches from it too and had to quit taking it. Don’t use this it’s not worth it.

  11. Nelly Nervous says:

    It doesn’t work. Just makes you discharge lots of oil, uncontrollably from your rectum it is a horrible product adult diapers are a must when taking Slendatrim.. And the return policy Is the worse, fighting with them for 6 weeks to get a refund !!

  12. Travis Lapdog says:

    I was very hopefully for this product. After one week of taking Slendatrim I sent it back and also contacted the manufacture. This made me absolutely sick to my stomach! horrible stomach pains! Would not buy again…..

  13. Bryan Spearman says:

    Slendatrim made me throw up was taking it for two days, I was taking only 1 pill a day also made my heart flutter alot. I will not be using this any more. I just flushed them down the toilet

  14. Dante Dymtrow says:

    Slendatrim is AWFUL . Uncontrollable diarrhea while taking it. I distoryed a new suit taking it .

  15. Nancy Vincent says:

    I never write reviews but Slendatrim was so bad something needs to be done. This product gave me no energy, no appetite suppression, it did absolutely NOTHING Except Hot Smelly Flatulence!! I would never recommend it to anyone. Do not waste your money on this product.

  16. Maria Leap says:

    Slendatrim a brutal product on yout GI track It made changes in my bowel function Fatty/oily stool, oily spotting, intestinal gas with wet discharges, I had feeling of needing to have a bowel movement right away +increased number of bowel movements, and poor bowel control . I call about a refund and total them about the side effects and some clown named Travis in the customer service said “well it sounds like you are losing weight too me” what a response. I have filed a complaint with the Florida Attorney General to look into the scam product .

  17. Kate Conners says:

    Severe headaches and diarrhea up to 48 hours after taking… Had to call in to work one night! After 2 days of taking Slendatrim I sent it back and have been trying to contacted the manufacture with no luck about a refund. This made me absolutely sick to my stomach! horrible stomach pains! Destroyed two pairs underwear and my favorite thong.

  18. Leanne says:

    I have done SO MUCH reading. Thank goodness for sites such as yours. Thank you.

  19. Tammy Lowdell says:

    Purchased Slendatrim 1 week ago. Took the pills at 6am and decided to go running at 7 am HUGE MISTAKE ! The diarrhea started 2 miles into my jog, Totally embarrassed myself it was running down my legs. I had to hide behinded a tree until my husband picked me up. This STUFF is nothing more then a bad laxative.

This STUFF is nothing more then a bad laxative.

  21. Brett Peters says:

    Consider yourself lucky. At least you were by yourself. I was doing a slideshare powerpoint presentation and I was wearing a mic during a conference presentation in front of 200 plus folks. 2 hours after the first dosage of this product I felt something going on with my stomach. It was 8:30 AM. Presentation at 10 AM. I knew I was in trouble. I was 10 minutes into my demo. when the mic picked up the gurggling noises. The audience could here it. It sounded like a bulldozer crashing into a mudslide. Five minutes later and my tan pants exploded with what looked like a Brown Oil Spill. I was completely embarrassed. I stopped the show, clenched myself, and moved as fast as I could off the stage. The show was stopped for clean-up for 20 minutes. I was beyond horrified. I was invited back on stage by the show promotters but there was no way I could show my face again. I have not been able to live it down at work with my colleagues.

  22. Cherri Jackson says:

    Slendatrim is not helpful loaded with way too much caffeine and calcium, it makes you nervous and has a laxative effect on the body because of the high calcium concentrate. My friend who is a Dr said it should be pulled from the market after reading the bottle

  23. Amy Spears says:

    Didn’t work for me and they keep me awake all night, I could’nt go to sleep at night after only taking one in the morning.
    After 1 days I felt like I was severely hungover with severe GI distress. Not happy at all. What a waste of money.

  24. Laura Dawson says:

    I thought I would try Slendatrim even though it had many negative reviews. It does not work. I actually gained weight. It did interfere with my sleep pattern and bowel movements ( runny wet diarrhea) but I still kept taking it, hoping it would work. It didn’t. I would say save your money, but others said the same thing and I didn’t listen.

  25. Alexa Manning says:

    No luck with Slendatrim very disappointed with the experience

  26. Tubby Boy says:

    It’s a Scam the auto ship hit my credit card for $350. What a joke

  27. Val Breker says:

    Slendatrim was very abusive to my intestines very disappointed with the experience. Seems to be more of a laxative in a weight-loss product

  28. Jane Jollman says:

    I have been taking this for about 3 weeks. A week ago I started having terrible gas, bloating, stomach cramping and running to the toilet. I had never had these symptoms before. I’m not taking anymore.

  29. Joan Lewis says:

    I ordered Slendatrim. It did not arrive, but I was informed by my post office that a customs charge had to be paid of £13.15 in addition to the postage charges I have already paid. Not acceptable. I have emailed slendatrim at the email address I received from shipping and unsurprisingly, the email was returned. I am also unable to access their website. I will be reporting them to Trading Standards and anyone else I can think of, as this is obviously a scam

  30. Nickie says:

    Used this product per the instructions for 3 weeks. No results! When I called to return, the lady on the phone made is sound like it was my fault that the product didn’t work, that I either was taking it incorrectly or did not take it long enough. And come to find out that their ‘unconditional’ guarranty does not include the origininal shipping and handling or the return postage, so I’m out $25.00. Do NOT buy this product or from this company.

  31. Heather says:

    The first two capsules as instructed, within 20 minutes I was shaking with heart palpitations, the product sent me to A&E. I have no sensitivity to caffeine however the doctor who saw me describes these as a “very high dose”. I was feeling anxious for hours, would not reccommend these to anyone. I am sure there is something very dodgy in Slendatrim beware of these tablets.

  32. Randy says:

    I have received my order, but I have since thrown them in the bin, after doing abit of research on the internet through Diet Watchdog. The side effects are definitely not worth the risk to your health, nor has the contents of the tablets been proved to aid weight loss. Research the product before you buy the rubbish.
