Boombod comes in a postbox-friendly box containing 21 separate packages, each with a single-gram dose of glucomannan, with additional ingredients to give users a bit of a boost. The powder is mixed with water, then drunk like a shot. Just make sure you have a glass of water straight afterwards to ensure the glucomannan doesn’t expand before it reaches your stomach! The only real downside is that Boombod does not offer a money-back guarantee.
So we just had to look more closely at this UK-based product – and this is what we found.
There’s a lot going for glucomannan, in the appropriate dosage – it has been used in Asia for centuries for all sorts of health problems. On this side of the world, it’s now being used mainly to help with weight issues. It works by expanding inside the stomach to give the impression of fullness, so taking it before a meal means you’re not going to eat so much. Added to the glucomannan in Boombod are vitamins and other ingredients to help you through the morning, afternoon, and night, which is why the daily dose comes in three packs.
Glucomannan can lower blood sugar levels, which might cause complications for diabetics.
Side effects brought on by the other ingredients can include digestion problems, headache, tiredness, and discoloration of urine and feces.
You can purchase Boombod 7-Day Achiever for £29.99. However, there are often buy-one-get-one-free offers, so you may be able to get two weeks worth of Boombod for the same price as one, depending on when you purchase.
Boombod comes in a postbox-friendly box containing 21 separate packages, each with a single-gram dose of glucomannan, with additional ingredients to give users a bit of a boost. There’s the Morning Energizer, the Afternoon Motivator, and the Night Rejuvenator.
The Morning Energizer contains, among other ingredients, iron, magnesium, and vitamin C that “contributes to normal Energy-yielding metabolism”.
Afternoon Motivator contains ingredients which include zinc, vitamins B1, B6, and B12, which “contributes to the reduction of tiredness & fatigue”.
Finally, the Night Rejuvenator contains selenium, vitamin D3, and biotin that “contributes to the maintenance of normal skin & hair”.
All of which, according to the before-and-after photos on the website, will melt a muffin top down to hardbody in just four short weeks.
It’s a three-stage process, adequately illustrated on their “easy to make” page, from which we quote here:
Take each shot 30 minutes before meals in the morning, afternoon, and night.
1) Empty one sachet into a dry, medium-sized glass
2) While stirring, fill a 1/4 of the glass with cold water to dissolve (Stir for 5 secs)
3) Don’t mess around! Drink shot straight away.
What isn’t so obvious, because it’s in small white writing lost in a pink strip going across the page, is that we’re advised to “follow each shot with a glass of water”. The way the page is laid out, that vital piece of information is easy to miss. And not following each shot with water could lead to the glucomannan expanding before it reaches where it’s supposed to expand. That could be lethal.
There’s also a quick 12-second video right below those instructions, walking you through the above process. It’s also on YouTube which, in five short weeks, racked itself up nearly 120,000 views.
Boombod is “a simple, quick and tasty way to lose weight without feeling hungry”.
The website contains a video (1 minute and 39 seconds in length) explaining how and why the product works.
We know the glucomannan will swell up inside a user’s stomach, so from that point of view, yes, it works. As for the other ingredients, much is going to depend on whether or not they’re the appropriate dosage for people with different body weights.
Its ingredients are scientifically proven to aid weight loss and you are covered by a full 60-day money-back guarantee from a trusted company, making Phentatrim a very popular choice in the diet world.
Phentatrim is the best thing to hit the supplement market in a long time, with thousands of customers already seeing the benefits. That’s why it's our editor's top pick.

Instead of going through the morning, afternoon, and nighttime doses separately again, we’re just going to look at all the ingredients at once here. It’s worth mentioning that these are side effects that are mentioned in relation to each ingredient, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you will experience any of them. The only real danger is the choking hazard associated with glucomannan if it expands before it reaches your stomach – so we must reiterate that you need to drink a glass of water after taking each shot of Boombod.
So far there are over 100 reviews on the Boombod website, which appear to be fairly positive. They also seem to have a pretty impressive social media following, with more reviews and testimonials from customers.
No, you can only get a refund on unopened products, which is not a money-back guarantee.
If you change your mind about your purchase and haven’t opened the box then you’ve got 14 days to return your order, as long as you’re eligible for a refund. To find out if that’s the case, you have to get to the refund policy web page, which isn’t as easy as it sounds. We just found ourselves getting sent to the sales page over and over and over again.
From the official Boombod website. Which is simple enough for UK customers, but for those in the US it’s a case of logging into a UK website, putting in your order, waiting for shipping – and hoping Boombod doesn’t get nabbed by customs or impounded by the FDA when it reaches North American shores. Canadian buyers may be facing customs charges. Shipping is free to UK customers, but a shipping fee is charged for other countries.
It is also available to buy in Holland and Barrett stores.
We really like the ingredients list for Boombod. Glucomannan is an ingredient that is proven to suppress the appetite, and the other ingredients aren’t bad either – plenty of vitamins, plus some zinc and manganese.
The one drawback is that there is no money-back guarantee with Boombod, just a standard returns policy on unopened products, so if you try it and find it doesn’t work for you, then there is no refund forthcoming.
The price seems quite steep at first, but there is often a buy-one-get-one-free offer on the official website, and suddenly the cost becomes much more appealing.
So whilst we feel that Boombod 7-Day Achiever contains some decent ingredients that are proven to suppress the appetite, you have to do so knowing that you aren’t protected by a guarantee like you would be with some other products.
