Every now and then we think it would be interesting to see what’s going on elsewhere in the world when it comes to supplements, and just for fun we decided to check out the scene in Great Britain. And the first product we found was, of course, from British Biologicals. It’s a weight-loss supplement called MediSlim. So far, so good. So we visited the British Biologicals website and discovered they weren’t actually based in Britain at all, but in Bangalore, India. And rather than specialising in weight loss supplements, they were much more involved with developing nutraceuticals for targeted groups and to help with specific conditions.

We couldn’t help wondering if they’d got a whole heap of leftover ingredients for something else they’d created and were just using them up to mix up a batch of MediSlim instead of throwing it all out.

So we looked a little deeper into British Biologicals, and this is what we found.

What You Need To Know About MediSlim

Available in natural and vanilla flavouring, MediSlim is a 16-week meal replacement therapy, working by reducing appetite and increasing fat breakdown and metabolism.

To keep users healthy while consuming fewer calories, MediSlim contains 27 essential vitamins and minerals, we’re told.

Unfortunately, we’re not able to tell you what those vitamins and minerals are, and in what quantities because nowhere on the website or on the rest of the internet is there a verifiable list of ingredients.

What Are The Side Effects Of MediSlim?

We’re not certain about side effects except for those possibly brought on by the four ingredients listed on the MediSlim website.

These can include anything from digestion problems, to dizziness, to mood swings, to problems with the liver and kidneys.

And since we don’t know how much of those ingredients are contained in MediSlim we don’t know what the chances of suffering from those side effects can be.

And as for all of those 27 essential vitamins and minerals and any possible side effects, who knows?

How Much Does MediSlim Cost?

We’ve found one company that will send MediSlim to the US and charge $32.65 per pack, plus $6.00 shipping fees … or for those closer to the factory, you’re looking at between Rs 500 and Rs 550.

Our Verdict On MediSlim

This is quite tough, because looking at British Biologicals’ website we can’t help wondering where the “British” part comes in. But we’re quite impressed by its “one of India’s 50 Great Workplaces” certificate, as well as the company’s corporate social responsibility policy – something we’ve never seen before when reviewing supplement products. And we like that. We like it a lot. And we’d like to see more of that when visiting supplement companies’ websites, please.

But we’ve got to be cautious if we’re recommending anything, so even though it’s a socially responsible company its only weight loss product doesn’t full us with confidence.

Much of that is down to the lack of information about ingredients, and how well they work, but we’re used to looking around the internet until we find verified information like that for other supplements.

However, this time round, the only information we could glean about MediSlim’s ingredients was from a website which featured an incredibly long list of uses for the product which included hair loss, AIDS, breathing problems in premature infants, Alzheimer’s and incontinence.

They also listed 158 side effects and 173 drug interactions, as well as many more ingredients than those four “fat-burning components” and those 27 essential vitamins and minerals.

Which just goes to show you shouldn’t trust everything you read on the Internet.

So while ignorance might be bliss in some cases, this case isn’t one of them. We’d rather know more – much more – about MediSlim before recommending it to anyone, so instead of suggesting you even think about trying it, we’re going to reject it, at least until we know more about it.

MediSlim Review

MediSlim is a 16-week meal replacement therapy, observed to reduce weight by up to 10 kilograms, or just over 22 pounds, in that time. You should substitute one meal a day with 40 grams of MediSlim mixed either with whole milk, skim milk or if you’re really counting those calories, plain water.

MediSlim Facts

  • British Biologicals state that their aim is to “develop disease specific nutrition formulas for conditions that can be cured directly by the intake of nutritional supplements, or can complement medical treatment to reduce hospitalisation and aid quick recovery”.
  • The company creates many products, not just for nutrition, but also to support health aspects such as the management of cholesterol, epilepsy and diabetes, as well as women’s and children’s general health. Other supplements British Biologicals create support gastrointestinal, respiratory and reproductive health.
  • MediSlim is a radical departure from British Biologicals’ product line since it’s the only one designed to deal with weight loss.

Supposedly – but we’ve got no confirmation either way – MediSlim contains all the essential nutrients we need, such as protein, complex carbohydrates, fibre, vitamins and minerals to keep uses properly nourished during those 16 weeks.

How to Take MediSlim

From the website: “Replace with anyone major meal, preferably dinner – 2 scoops (40g) in a cup (240 ml) lukewarm skimmed milk, provides 224 kcal/serving.”

And not surprisingly, British Biologicals suggest that “diet and exercise will give better results” – but then all supplement companies always should, shouldn’t they?

MediSlim Concerns:

Try as we might, we simply can’t find:

  • any credible information about the product itself;
  • any credible information about its ingredients;
  • any credible information about its effects.

To say we’re concerned is an understatement here.

What Does MediSlim Claim To Do?

According to the British Biologicals website, MediSlim is, quote: “a comprehensive meal replacement formula with natural fat burners, protein and complex carbohydrates, fibres, vitamins and minerals, which facilitates quick weight loss. It blocks fat by curbing appetite and reduces cravings. In addition, it increases thermogenesis (the burning of fats and release energy).”

Does MediSlim Work?

We have absolutely no idea. Maybe the quantities of the four ingredients listed on the British Biologicals website really do help users lose weight, but since we don’t know what those quantities are (or what those “27 essential vitamins and minerals” might be either) all we can say is … maybe.

What Are The Ingredients of MediSlim?

The only four ingredients we’re certain MediSlim contains are these four “fat burning components” listed below, and what they’re supposed to do, taken from the information available on the British Biologicals’ website:

  • Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA): Suppresses fatty acid synthesis, increases fat breakdown & suppresses hunger. Reduces total lipid levels. Inhibits CHO to fat conversion.
  • Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA): Increases Lipolysis (fat breakdown) in adipocytes. Reduces the fat cell size. Increases cell death of adipocytes.
  • Soy Protein Isolate: Affects satiety & reduces excess fat, total & LDL cholesterol levels. Improves insulin resistance & fat metabolism.
  • Chromium: Controls blood lipids, lowers LDL cholesterol & increases HDL cholesterol.

Does MediSlim Have Any Side Effects?

Unfortunately, because there’s no verifiable ingredient list available that we can absolutely trust, we’re limited to looking for potential side effects of the four known ingredients British Biologicals says they use.

Whether these ingredients are in quantities which can cause the side effects listed here, we can’t say, but we think it’s better to let you know what the possibilities are.

HCA can cause dizziness, dry mouth and problems with the digestive system.
CLA can also cause digestive problems, but there are indications that it can increase fat within the liver.

Soy can also cause digestive problems, but it can also bring on skin irritation, headaches, dizziness, nausea, mood changes and impaired thinking, judgement, and coordination.

Chromium has been linked to blood disorders and damage to the liver or kidneys.

MediSlim is not advisable for pregnant women and children. People with thyroid problems, metabolic disorders and those who are critically ill should consult physicians for MediSlim therapy.

Are There Any Customer Reviews For MediSlim?

Not on Amazon (you could be the first to write one there if you wanted) … and none on the British Biologicals website … but there are some glowing reviews of MediSlim at – but since they’re trying to sell MediSlim, we’re not that surprised to find them there. We’re just surprised we can’t find anywhere else.

Does MediSlim Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?

A guarantee? Not from the British Biologicals website, but then again, you can’t buy MediSlim from there anyway.

You’ll find many online retailers willing to take your money but we can’t actually find one offering to return it to you.

Where Can I Buy MediSlim?

You won’t find any on Amazon, where they tell us MediSlim is currently unavailable, and you won’t find any on eBay either.

But there’s always Net Meds, Easy Medico and India Mart.
