Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel Key Features

With a name like that we immediately had our suspicions that it might originate from China, for some reason, it just sounds Chinese, doesn’t it?

Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel Key Points

  • Comes from China
  • Untested and unproven
  • Uses some strange ingredients

After some careful research, our doubts were proven right when we traced it back to a supplier from China. This is nothing unusual; there is a massive industry in China churning out all manner of fake and copied products, as well as some weird and wonderful concoctions with all manner of ridiculous claims.

How to Take Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel

The advice is to take 1 capsule per day, so you are getting 36 days supply of 650mg of these ingredients.

So, where will Meizitang fit into all this? Is it really some incredible diet pill that not many of us know about yet, or it simply another scam product with no real controls over manufacture?

Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel Concerns

  • Fake testimonials
  • No company details are shown
  • No clinical evidence
  • Company based in China

What does Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel claim to do?

There seems to be a large number of Meizitang websites around, making all sorts of claims, but the official one looks to be As usual, we have a close look at the site and see what we can unearth.

As soon as we land there we notice the very amateur look of the site, we’ve seen this before and it’s not a big problem. In fact, some of the worst diet pill scammers use some awesome looking websites so it’s never an indication of the quality of the product.

Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel Advert

Ok, we have a nice bold red headline, lose 10+ lbs. a week!!!

This would normally be enough to stop us right here and give this the rejected stamp. A claim like this is usually totally unproven and frankly irresponsible. A loss of 10 pounds every week would be classified as dangerous by any medical professional worth their salt, so to see it on a site flogging diet pills should never be believed or trusted.

The free worldwide shipping looks good as well; let’s take a closer look at this later.

Moving on we take a look at the content on the front page. Its then our initial doubts were well and truly confirmed. Whoever wrote this content has a very low grasp of the English language, and in particular grammar. Here are a couple of pearls of wisdom:

Meizitang adopts many kinds of natural plants that possess the function of slimming and keeping nice figure.

…to enable the fat in the taken food not to be absorbed by the body

Really? We always wanted “keeping nice figure! And what about all that “taken food”?

Ok, it’s not fair having a snipe at peoples grammar etc., but there’s a serious point here. We are trying to establish where this diet pill is shipped from and who the company behind it is, so these mistakes would suggest we are dealing with the actual factory shipping out of China. This gives you very little protection or comeback if anything ever goes wrong, so should be taken seriously.

Does Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel work?

Well the testimonial says it does, but as we have shown, these have simply been stolen from another product that is using dodgy looking testimonials themselves.

There is zero evidence offered that this product works, either for the product itself or for the ingredients.

phentatrim bottle
The most popular appetite suppressant in 2020 is Phentatrim.

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.

Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel Ingredients

Unfortunately it’s a very poor website with very little information actually presented, however, we did find the following:

  • Extracts from ZiSu 25%
  • Extracts from oriental water plantain 13%
  • Extracts from cassia seed 10%
  • Extracts from Fuling 17%
  • Medical Amylum 35%

36 capsules per pack (650 mg x 12 pills x 3pcs)
Size: 12.4 X 16.9 cm for one pack

So what exactly are these ingredients? Well, it would be good if they let us know but that’s about all the information you get! There are no clinical studies presented either into the ingredients or the product itself, worse that they don’t even tell us how much of each ingredient is included in each tablet. This is another big no-no.

It seems these are all Chinese medicinal herbs, so let’s see what we can find out for ourselves shall we:

  • ZiSu (Perilla): This is a natural herb, but we can find no evidence at all as to its weight loss abilities. We found some detailed information on Wikipedia, but not much more. Source
  • Oriental Water Plantain (Alisma): Ok we are getting somewhere now. “Chinese medicine herb used for edema, diarrhoea, strangury, vaginal discharge, dizziness, painful urination, seminal emission, night sweating, lumbar pain.” Source
    Once again nothing to do with weight loss but you might find it works for some other personal problems! Another interesting fact: the Irish believe that it will ward off fairies!
  • Cassia Seed (Senna Obtusifolia): Also known as Chinese Senna, it is used in traditional folk medicine. It is usually used for its laxative effect, which might suggest its inclusion in this product. It is also said to be helpful for the eyesight. Source
  • Fuling (Zha cai): This is some sort of pickled mustard plant used in Chinese cooking. No evidence as to its slimming abilities. Source
  • Medical Amylum (Starch): Put very simply this is common starch that is found in many foods, including potatoes, wheat, maize and cassava. It is also used for papermaking and as a thickening agent. It’s a very cheap product that is normally used as a filler. In all likelihood, it is used in this product to simply try and make you feel fuller. Source

So there we have it, a random mix of extracts of Chinese herbs. Would you be happy taking this mixture with no further evidence as to what they do (or do not do) in combination with each other?

Nope, neither would we!

The main problem so far is that Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel is not indicating how much of any of these ingredients are contained in the product. This is a big problem as anyone doing any research cannot see if it will be effective or not. There is simply not enough information available to make an informed decision.

Never buy or consume a product where there is no indication of what is in it!

Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel Side Effects

No studies have been done either into the effectiveness of Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel, or indeed if there are any side effects from ingesting the mix that they have come up with. There could possibly be long-term damage to the body; at this stage, it is impossible to say one way or the other.

Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel Customer Feedback

Well, this is where it gets interesting. These scammers normally know that a whole load of positive reviews on the website “trick” people into thinking the product actually works.

But we found a new one here, these guys are actually using reviews from another website and passing them off as their own! Not only that but the ones that they have stolen are from a product we have reviewed before, and we showed that these customer reviews were dubious, to say the least!

We reviewed NUVORYN and showed how they were doing some really dodgy things with their reviews, but these guys have stolen them and are using them as their own.

Meizitang and nuvoryn similar testimonials?

This is a new low for us, is there no depth to which these scammers will lower themselves in order to blatantly con people?

This is not the only one they have used; they actually have 5 pages worth of fake reviews on their site.

Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel Money-Back Guarantee

Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel comes with a 100% money-back guarantee. However, the company doesn’t state how long customers have to return the supplement.

Where To Buy Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel

Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel costs $24.99. Each bottle comes with 12 capsules and lasts six days.

It can be bought online direct from the main merchant, which appears to be Meizitang Botanical Slimming. There are also several other sites selling the same product, we suspect they are buying the product from China in wholesale quantities and selling it on that way. None of them are real businesses with any sort of contact details in order to deal with them in the event of any problems.

Several of these other sites claim to be the official one as well, but for the purposes of this review, we are only dealing with

Please bear in mind that there are no contact details at all for this company, apart from an email contact form. There is no phone number or address shown on the website.

Watchdog Verdict

Pretty easy one this. Meizitang fails on just about every level possible. Suspected unproven ingredients, fake reviews, and no contact details, the list goes on.

One of the worst we have reviewed so far, even the Utah diet pill scammers could learn a few more tricks from these guys. Overall, we do not recommend Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel to our readers.

  1. I took these pills they work!!!! 100 percent just be sure to drink lots of water and workout eat right and you wil be find.

  2. I also used Meizitang in 2006 so long time ago. I lost 20 pounds (10kg) in a month. I was stunned with the result. I stopped after reading some reviews stating that because its is from China, unregulated and untested you never know what is in it. Apparently there was rat poison found in one but this ‘apparently’ may be as believable as this article here, where lady states for example Meizitang stole testimonials from other company ONLY because she came across other website first… Really?? If all her research was done in such devious, irresponsible manner we may as well say this whole article is not valid altogether.
    Coming back to Meizitang – The biggest concerns is sibutramine – drug used in the past to treat heavily obese people under strict doctor’s watch. Unfortunately because of this I read about few deaths when girls thought it will be great idea to take few meizitang tablets a day…
    Also – you will get heart palpitations with it, big problem to fall asleep, constant thirst (I learned to drink still water back then and cannot live with it since), but the worst I guess was that it also messes up with a head and psyche a bit..
    Although it gave me amazing results since 2006 I did not have courage to come back to it. Too dangerous to put in your own body.
    Instead of getting something which will work for few months (jojo effect is a bummer in here) teach yourself how to eat!!! by learning from naturally thin people. Buy yourself Paul McKenna’s ‘I’ll make you Thin’ who made that research for you, stop starving your body or putting chemicals in it and start living according to your body’s needs. Works for me, will work for you. Good Luck x

  3. The product itself does help to lose weight. The problem is the product coming from China, they are fake, and not authorized for import to the United States. They will be intercepted at Customs. The product I used from the U.S. was good and I lost weight (about 15 lbs) and kept it off as long as I took them. If the product is coming from China, do not buy it.

    1. This product you talk about it produce in china not in USA and many sellers in USA buy it from china and reselling in USA. Not every think made in USA be good and not every think made in china be bad . I bought garcinia from USA 25$ but is like water and I bought garcinia from Thailand 3$ i lost 3 kilo in month without exrsies.

  4. I found then on a wesite claiming they ” carry over hundred of brand and thousand of selection from trusted manufacturer and supplier in USA, Canada and Asia.Meizitang Botanical Slimming Soft Gel Capsule diet pil is made from selected natural slimming botanical formula for beauty-making and the active extracts from jobstears and Lotus Leaf. Meizitang Slimming Capsule or Meizitang Botanical Slim Softgel is produced in SFDA approved GMP factory.” So Are these more safe???

  5. I am selling MZT products online and I have many satisfied customers and repeatedly buy from me.Yes there are many sellers out there selling fakes , but we sell genuine products and the consumer must know how to differentiate the real from the fakes so that they are not scamed. There are a few features on the packaging that you must look for in order to know that you are buying the real one.

    1. Hi Jay,

      Thanks for the information provided. I have been taking MSV for a while and they are absolutely fabulous! The real ones anyway. I have run out and am desperate to purchase as many as I can get? Are you still selling them…..
      Pleeaaassseee say yes please!!!!

    2. I’m in Perth WA. I used these a few years ago and they definetly work. I can’t buy online as the web pages freeze when I’m checking out. Is it a problem delivering to Australia?

  6. These pills do work….
    I lost about 10 lbs a month without exercise. But they kinda work too good lol… I no longer craved anything I didn’t even feel the need to eat anymore. I just wanted to drink water all the time… I do use them to JumpStart my diet I’ll take it for two months and it helps me stop eating sugar and foods that contain lots of fat and drink a lot of water… I usually take a turn after 6 months and have to start over again. Lol
    Its a problem I’m working on but overall I would take it again.

  7. I started taking these pills 4 days ago and I have lost a few pounds already. I bought them at this Mexican store in Dallas and they seem to be legit. I don’t get headaches but tonight I started feeling chest pain and shortness of breath along with cottonmouth. My craving went away and for some reason I started to itch all over. I don’t work out so this may be a problem for some of the side effects. I’m thinking about taking one every other day until I get to the size I need to then I’m done.

  8. Where is everyone getting the REAL meizitang. I took them a couple years ago and did wonderfully for me. Not sure why I stopped. I am hunting for a safe place to order them from. WHERE O WHERE can I find them?

  9. whenever I want to lose weight I go searching for Chinese diet pills which contain sibutramine. I know of the dangers but that is the only thing that ever helps me to lose weight. Had a baby 1 year ago and I gained 20 lbs. I lost 20 lbs in 2 months.

  10. Man o man…. I love meizitang. I can’t wait to try the strong version but they are so hard to get. So next time I get paid in buying a whom crate full of them

    1. Hi, I live on the Gold Coast and yes they work! But yes they can give u headaches and thirst let me know if you want to buy any?

    2. Yaaa I want some where can I get them from because the official website you can’t buy them from them any more ?

  11. Well to be honest this is a lie… I myself use this product and as well I sell them and NY clients have had great results pictures of my clients on fb

    1. where can I buy Meizitang pills? There are so many website that offer the pills, but I’m concerned about buying fake ones. Thanks.

  12. I would recommend people to NOT take these. I was using them and within days experienced sharp chest pains and heart palpitations. That scared me. So, in good conscience I thought I’d warn anybody interestesd in these pills.

  13. I used these pills for about half month and they did give me results i lost 6 inches off my hips and 4 inches of my waist. The first day i took the pill i had really dry mouth and i drank 4 liters of water (gallon) i did not have any hunger at all nor cravings, i did notice that the first night i could not sleep because of rapid hear beat and i had a lot of energy. i stooped taking them because it made my immune system crash and it made a normal cold into a big deal (ended up in the hospital) yes it makes you loose weight, but no its not healthy to loose weight so fast. it make you metabolism faster and the bad thing is that it burns everything not just whats not needed but what you body needs. The pills make your hunger go away but lets be honest your body needs glucose (energy) to live, no food= no glucose= No ATP to your brain. which in other simpler terms your slowly killing normal functions to your body. i hope that what happened to me, helps others choose wisely.

  14. Hi every one. is it possible to tell me where to purchase this product. My hormone doesn’t let me loose weight so I just want to try the product pls help

    1. It is possible to get them – I have some if you would like to buy and try them. I paid $20/package of 36 (I think there are 36 pills.. it’s something like 5 weeks in a pack). I know a ton of people that had great results on this so I had gotten a few packs – only it didn’t take that many for me to lose the weight I wanted to lose!

  15. I lost 10 kilos in 3 months when taking these tablets. The real ones are BRILLIANT. However the fake ones are far to common and do absolutely nothing. My first two batches were amazing and i lost weight so easily while eating whatever i wanted, but when i tried to buy them again, i got fakes and ended up wasting $90 so it can be win or lose unfortunately.

  16. DO NOT USE THIS! Results are definite perhaps because there is either something a like or traces of amphetamines within this product.
    During my use of the product I had seizures 3 three times, and I don’t have any medical conditions at all, I’m only 20… and definitely don’t suffer from epilepsy or anything to that affect.
    This product has unlisted consequences and is not worth the risk!!

    1. You should avoid any diet pills at that age – your brain isn’t fully developed yet and your hormones and metabolism haven’t settled! If you do continue to try different pills, PLEASE don’t let it get to 3 seizures before you quit taking something.

  17. I lost 30 lbs in 2 months on these with watching my calorie intake and light excersize. I also experienced the dry mouth and reduced appetite. I know first hand that the do help you loose weight. It was a great jump start but I don’t think it is healthy by any means. Cutting your calories, eating your fruits and veggies along with lean proteins, and some excersize is your best bet to keep it off. You can’t take these pills forever. Loosing weight and keeping it off shouldn’t just be a diet. But a lifestyle change. I did experience stomach pains in my upper right abdomen after stopping the pills. It would happen when I ate anything fatty or greasy. The symptoms I experienced where what I was told were “gallbladder” symptoms. I never once had this problem until after taking these. I’m not sure if my stomach wasn’t used to absorbing the fat after taking the pills for 2 months, but it is just weird the pains started 2 weeks after stopping them. Please look into weight watchers or the HER program instead resorting to a pill!!

    1. The same symptoms for me. The pain on my right side was horrible. I also experienced bloating. Night sweats, cotton mouth and extreme thirst.

    2. I had the Same thing happen but worse !!! I developed gallstones and I had to get surgery to remove them it was a very painful experience was hospitalized for 1 week and had 3 visits to the emergency room learn from my mistake yes I lost about 30 pounds in 3/ 4 months but look at me now u have no gallbladder!!!! Was it worth it no any time I would eat I would throw up get this pain I had atracks I couldn’t take the pain plz don’t take them PLEASE IF ANYONE HAS GOTTEN GALSTONES PLEASE LET ME KNOW UR STORY!!!!!

  18. Hello, I took the pill almost 2 years ago and I lost around 15 pounds, I felt really good and it helped me stop random eating and I only drink water from then till today, but I did notice some sleepless nights and I have gotten many issues with my body today. I can’t breath at night sometimes , and my heart darts to race or slow down and it’s hard to breath. I also have a hard time using the restroom now and I get stomach pains. Those are the main issues, I did lose weight tho and right now since I can’t use the restroom , I feel so bloated and huge all the time and no matter what I do I can’t lose weight. This pill is the only thing that helped and I wanna do it again so bad but I’m scared for the outcomes again, and I am currently under acne medication 🙁 it sucks so bad because I have a left over bottle of the pills and I just wanna take them!

  19. I just bought mine from this website and now after reading all of this im scared to take them 🙁 does anyone know if these are real???

    1. HECK NO! Never take any diet pill when breastfeeding! Never take ANY KIND OF MEDICINE except Prenatal Vitamins when breastfeeding!

  20. I’ve been taking this for 6 days now and will stop immediately. During the day, and most especially at night I have been going from being so cold I shiver, to sweaty and over-hot. I do not have a fever, I am not ill. It’s made me unable to have a good night’s sleep and this has been the only change I have made. I ordered Phentaslim because of my own research and this website. I think it will be safer and will give me results. Thank you Watchdog!

  21. I know lots ppl who taken this product with good results, but im diabetic and have high blood pressure, even on meds for that, so i was afraid to try, but i bought anyways, and 1 week in ive lost 8lbs and 2% body fat. I am watching what i eat and do exercise everyday. I do find it helps control appetite and yes i get the dry mouth too! they even make a stronger version, and yes ive heard of all the fake pills, so dont order online find someone who sells them, i found on craigslist.

  22. Wow lots of comments…I sell these pills here in san antonio,tx. All my customers have not had any side effects except the cotton mouth. 🙂 I do not know how to ship out n get paid except a money order in the mail…hope evryone finds the real ones cause those other ones sound like bad side effects:(

    1. Hi Rosie,
      Can I order these pills from you? IF your in Texas I trust that more than China. please email me to let me know how I can order from you

    2. Where in San Antonio are you. I am interested in buying. I live in Indiana but my sister lives in San Antonio south side on 281 South.

    3. Hi Rosie,im interested in buying mzt if you still HV some, please feel free to contacme with details n prices

  23. I have been taking them and they do work but hope these tips help.
    Make sure u cut the first pill in half and the liquid is sopposed to be browinish not white.
    I have passed thru some fake ones especially from the website which I think its a scam its not even the real one because those things are fake and they refused to give me my money back.

    Second drink lots and lots of water if not the pill wont work and maybe thats why some get headaches and pain.

    You also need to make sure and take in the morning before a meal. Douring the day you might not get hungry but you still need to eat.

    If you feel your heart pounding that means like any other weight loss pill that it is not right for you.

    And last do not take more than you should.

    I have made all these mastakes on taking this pill but now i am very happy with the product and do recomend but I know it is not for everyone.

  24. I’ve read all the posts and no one has said where to by them from. I have been on them for 2 years, they do work however I take them as they assist with my muscle spasms and pain as they help. I have run out and can’t get hold of the lady who buys them for me as she’s gone on holidays. Can someone please help me find a ligit site to buy real ones please.

  25. Iv been on these 3 days i havnt been hungry but iv only losed à pound should i b loosing more weight could somone tell me please

    1. Hi u have to be patient not everyone looses weight the same. Just make sure to drink lots of water and take in the morning before u eat

  26. COULD SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL ME A LEGITIMATE SITE I CAN BUY MEIZITANG FROM IN AUSTRALIA?? I live in Australia and can not find a real website to buy them from or that deliver to Australia. I’d also like to be able to use paypal.

  27. I have been taking them for three months the first month I dieted n exercised and lost 20 lbs the following months I have eaten fast food on weekends but healthy during the week. Meals consist of fruits veggies ground turkey chicken wheat grains and lots of water. Every once in a while a non caffeinated soda. Seems to do me well clothes feel loose. Don’t feel bloated like I use to. No problems at all only symptom I had was cotton mouth in the beginning but not anymore. This stuff works great and really curves my appetite. Sat one point I went 36 hours with out eating. That was my choice at the time. I won’t say where I got the pills for fear that someone will be a snitch and report it. But I know they are real. I don’t have those headaches like everyone else or the heart pains. If u pay attention to the comments you will notice a trend that all the good ones state the only side effect was the cotton mouth. What is your friend sugary drinks are not. I recommend this pill. But as they say at your own risk

  28. a friend of mine recommended me these pills because shes been losing weight like crazy and ive been taking the softgel pills for more than a week now & lost 2KGs which is CRAZY because its very hard for me to lose weight. even before taking the pills, i do workout alot & it makes me want to vomit during my workout session. as i am typing this, its really hard for me to breathe.
    yes, it helps you to lose weight but after reading everyones comment, i might stop taking them.

  29. I have read the responses, and a lot of people are asking where to buy them and not getting a response. I would also like to know where to buy the authentic ones. I’ve tried ioffer like someone suggested, but its not available. It’s also not available on amazon. Could someone please let me know where to buy the authentic version. Thank you! I would really appreciate it.

  30. I’ve been talking these a week now, only 1 a day. Lost 5 lbs. The 2nd and 3rd day had slight headache and couldn’t sleep very well. Very dry mouth, so drinking lots of water. These don’t make me hungry at all. Will continue with this bottle and feeling good now.

    1. Hi Bev
      What website did you buy yours from? I am having trouble with a few not letting me. I also am scared of fake/scam websites. Would love to know where, I am in Australia 🙂

  31. Okay, firstly, yes these pills are illegal in Australia, and if found customs will destroy. Secondly, they contain far worse than sibutramine – essentially they are mostly made up of a cheap poorly produced amphetamine. Yep, worse than ice. I took them for one and a half months and in that time lost about 5kg purely due to not eating. I became paranoid, did not sleep, had sores all over from scratching. Then slipped into a drug induced hypomanic episode of which 8 months later I’m still recovering. Don’t risk your health.

  32. This product does contain sibutramine. Please do research on the ingredients & know your health status before taking this product.

  33. On second thoughts… Forget this! I don’t have a death wish just yet. Heart pounding??
    I hope every1 who have left these negative reviews r in good health!

  34. I took these tablets once a day combined with a chicken, red meat and salad diet aswell as protein shakes and lost 50kgs in 4 months. Over the next 6 months I stopped taken them and resumed a normal and unhealthy diet and I have since gained 8 kgs (yes that may be bad but 8kgs over 6 months vs what I lost is ok to me)
    I have started them again to loose another 30kgs after giving my body a break and can’t wait to loose this weight and get down to 80kgs..

    I take these tablets while being monitored once a fortnight at the doctors for blood tests to make sure everything stays ok with my health while doing it!!

  35. i tried this mzt pill about 2 or 3 years ago. At first i ate 1 pill a day and it was just okay. I started to take 2 pills a day when i was on vacation. when i got back from vacation for some reason i start to feel something was not right with my body. About 3x or more my heart felt hurt like somehow tied and couldn’t breath nor speak for about couple seconds. On top of that, every time i try to consume this pill ever again or even see it, i feel like my brain and body not willing to accept it. For some reason, i feel like wanting to throw up.

    I still have some of this MZT pills with me but never consume it again. I dont recommend this pill to anyone.
    Yes it does help people to loose weight, but then remember you are putting your health in risk.

  36. I have a hormonal imbalance and nothing had worked for me before. Other pills I’ve tried would make me jittery so I would stop taking them right away. These pills did not work immediately for me. It took almost 2 months before I lost 5 lbs. I’ve now been taking them for about 7 months now and have lost 40 lbs. I’m still taking the pills but it seems like I’m no longer losing weight but I haven’t gained it back either so I’m still happy 🙂

    1. I Was given some by a friend and lost about 10lbs. Ordered from the same site since November 2013 but never recieved the order. When Tracked, it was still at customs but never received any letter to inform me of the Package. Tried contacting seller but very difficult to get a response since you can only contact by email with no forwarding address or telephone number.

  37. i ordered mine from ioffer seemed alot cheaper than most and got the old version which ppl tell me is stronger and more expensive. i asked my doctor why was reductile banned he said coz a few people got heart attacks from it. but he said if you abuse anything its bad for you. he said more people go to emergency room for vitamins over load than steroids. he said if i wanted to try them go for it, he isnt goin to stop me but he has to warn me that if abbused can cause heart attack. he checked my blood pressure and was fine so he said your good to go and to come in once a month so he can monitor it. he said he knows wateva he says i was still goin to get them so the least he can do is monitor it. im still waiting on the pills from ioffer but friends have bought it from there and highly recomend it …. im at 130 kgs atm and 190 cm im hoping to be 110 for my wedding in november ill let you know if it works

  38. YES they work because of the subitramine, NO they are NOT Natural again the Subitramine, if you are okay with that and are willing to take the risk its your choice but those are the facts look for them on the FDA website or type Botanical Slimming and FDA in the search engine, I took them and lost 20 lbs not knowing but suspecting that they were not natural, all i ate was fast food and didnt move a muscle except to eat :/ I did start eating better after i finished taking them and moving more but i still gained every single pound back!! I have been wanting to take them again but I am scared of just gaining the weight back again and I have a baby now so I dont want to take something that might take me away from him!!

  39. Hi
    I ordered the pills meizitang strong version.
    They do look for me serious they give a refund and you can pay with PayPal as well
    I’m waiting for the pills to arrive

  40. Have just begun on this pill, have seen with my own eyes the transformation, my aunt has lost 45kgs in about 6 months, so im impressed. Im not hungry, a little extra energy during the day, and havent had any bad side effects as yet.

    So far so good.
    Will keep updated.

  41. Hi i got these tablets and after reading some reviews that state tablets have the ingredient subitramine I’m very hesitant as I am currently taking aropax.
    Can anyone give any advice on this please!

    1. Hi Caroline,

      There have been some reports that many of the diet pills coming from China include Sibutramine. This ingredient has been banned in most countries since 2010 due to evidence arising that it can cause heart defects in people. Many of the Chinese diet pills are unregulated and have no indication of the ingredients within them so the best advice is to steer well clear. We did a full investigation into the problem of Chines diet pills here:

  42. Hi,

    I have seen these tablets on Amazon which makes me think that they are okay, has anyone order these from Amazon?


  43. I personally do not like the review. I lost weight personally on MZT then MSV which is the stronger version 180 to 147 lbs and my brother 367 to 243 lbs in 9 months. In our cases we changed a few bad eating habits such as a lot of fried food and eating late…we also worked out a little. I worked out 2 times per week for 45 minutes and at first my brother could do too much but as he lost he was able to be more and more active. For his it was VERY life changing, he was over weight his whole life, he even wore a size 40 in middle school so imagine how that was for a kid. I would definitely tell people to reseach because their are more fakes than real but the real is effective and they work. The more you work with them the more they will work for you. I know people that lost 10-15 lbs in a month by just taking them but just imagine what they could have lost by walking or doing something. I think this supplement is great.

    1. hi!… do you recall the website where you bought them from? I want to buy them but I’m reading a lot of real vs fake reviews so I would not like to buy the wrong ones.

    1. Hi bunny,
      We would suggest reading our review and checking out some of the comments on here from other consumers. The feedback has been fairly negative and so may wish to look at other products.

  44. These pills have been tested in Australia and have been found to contain Subutramine which is a prescription only drug. I believe it is the main ingredient in Reductil.
    This is not in any way a natural substance and MUST NOT be used by people with any health conditions especially with the heart. It raises blood pressure and causes heart palpitations. These side effects can be fatal in someone with even a mild heart condition or high blood pressure.

    1. Yes these tablets do contain subutramine and one of the side effects I found when taking these was it actually reduced the serotonin levels in the brain not good! and I found I did lose a lot of weight but seem to lose muscle mass as well which left me flabby

    1. Can cause really bad headaches sleeplessness rapid heart rate just simply not good for the body and everyone responds differently not worth taking!!!

  45. I have been taking the pill for a month and I lost 6 pouds. It takes my hungry away at nights and makes me thristy. (I am forced to drink more water and that helps as well) I think the results vary for everybody. I do try to work out some times but is not often enought to give credit to the gym for the 6 pounds I lost. I am not planning to take it forever, maybe just for another month. I didn’t purchase them from any website, a friend of mine gave me a couple of bottles because she order too many bottles by mistake.

  46. And I order from mazitang . Com botanical. But they look can fake to me because I have a friend she lost 15 pds in one week but the pills she is taking are glossy and bigger then my so maybe that’s why I’m not loosing weight

    1. MIT first Ones were fake, supposedly my next order from pbbsucces were real. i didn’t lose pound in a week, bad headaches and couldn’t sleep at night i quit taking

    2. Very true, I have done the same I ordered from site and they were not real. Plus the marking on the pill is way off compared to the real ones.

  47. I also bought these soft gel tablets and when i tracked the order with an post in ireland it stated that the package arrived water damaged and contents missing,now i have been back and fort emailing the company as i have paid for the items but am getting no where fast with this hoax company,PLEASE DO NOT ORDER OFF THIS SITE BY ANY MEANS OR YOU WILL BE LEFT OUT OF POCKET

  48. Please, please!!!!! I do not take them , I took them for about a month, after stopping taking them my heart started to pound on my chest. Instead of losing weight, I gained 2 kg, I am not happy at all

  49. crazy thing, is that i have tried the pills and they do work. I kept a pretty clean diet too, eating healthier than ever and consuming lots of water. Thats what helped me alot. Now, there is a lot of websites that are scams, thats the sad part.

  50. Hello All… I started taking these pills over a month ago, I’ve lost alot of weight. But now I’ve been off the pills for about a week now, and im starting to feel bad… Sleepy, bloated, constipated, cotton mouth, my heart has been pounding in my chest and stomach. (fyi I work out everyday, 3 meals day, no bad food/soda ) So i dont think i will ever take this pills again, they work different for others…….

    1. I have heard that when people stop taking them they do feel horrible. Thinking that’s not worth it that’s for sure.

  51. I had a bestfriend who started to take these pills and in 1 year she dropped 90 pounds that is to also say she would take 2 pills instead of one and I think her eating habits had a lot to do also with it she used to have wieght problems and this helped her but I don’t think it is good to drop so much wieght in such little time I had tried them out for a month and lost about 10 pounds but when you stop taking them you have to try and control your eating habits again

  52. The pills help reduce your appetite,and I know someone that used them and dont exercise and still lose weight after still eating whatever they wanted. Yes some of the stories may be false but there are some that have actualy lose weight. I think this pill would be ok for short term use not everyday of your life. I also have used this pill and have lose 5 lbs, will order again but not take them everyday.

  53. Thank you for your research. I was skeptical at first when my cousin told me about her taking these. She had told me she had lost 60lbs in 3mos. Granted its not very healthy to lose weight that fast. But she really had a weight problem. So I bought some for myself and its been barely a month and I’ve lost 15lbs. I have been struggling with my weight for over 8yrs almost 9. It didn’t matter if I exercised and ate right I would always hit a plateau. These pills combined with my diet and exercise were the boost I really needed. As far as one of the most noticeable side effects its Cottonmouth. Which in return makes you drink lots of water. Before I wouldn’t even get close to drinking a gallon of water a day. But with these pills and my cottonmouth water is all I ever drink. All day! I cut out soda except for once a week, which is on my cheat day when I will eat whatever I want (not a buffet but a burger meal) with that said, it worked for me. But like with Any diet pills they all have a different effect on a case by case basis.

    1. Hi Ariana,

      We really appreciate your feedback and we are very impressed with your own results. We can only review products on the information available to us at the time, and in the case of Meizitang we simply found far too many negatives to put it on our approved list. This is not to say it doesn’t work for some people, as in your case, and we are truly happy to see the results you have got.

      We are more than happy to receive great stories like yours, even for products we reject. Hopefully this shows that we review all the products in a fair manner and even when we see something that doesn’t fit with our findings we are still happy to publish it.

      Good luck with the rest of your journey and thanks again for sharing your story. 🙂

    2. Ariana, where did you purchase the pills you bought? From that website? Or did you get them somewhere else? I would like to try, despite the watchdog reject. I just don’t want to buy from a fake website. Please let me know, thank you.

    3. Ariana, I strongly agree!! I order mzt pills two weeks ago and it truly cuts my cravings for sweets and over eating however it does give me cotton mouth and that helps me to drink more water also truly this pill is better then taking any other diet pill it even gives me more energy.

    4. my weight was always 98kg to 96kg ,how hard I’ve diet always a yo yo .recently for the past 3 mth I’ve taken this product and I am now 83 kg .I am also worried about the side effect so I went to check my blood so far my cholesterol level is good no more above ,my sugar good.and overall all is ok.5kg a mth without any exercise is consider good and now I just take it one pills after a week or two to see if I might gain back but so far ,OK.

    5. i have been taking these pills for four days. in those four days. i have not been hungry. i eat during the day, but lat at night while im trying to sleep, i get very hungry. then the worst part is i have been have a very sore pain across the middle od my back. i will stop taking them now and go back to taking just my raspberry ketones. but in four days i have lost 2 pounds. I take one inthe morning when i wake up. eat a sensible diet have not been exercising. but the bad hunger pains at night are terrible and the serious back pains is why i will stop taking them.

    6. Where did You purchase from which site, because some sites real and a lot more are fake. I Order from pbbsuccess and have bad headaches and couldn’t sleep real good I’ve heard the real ones are good, But hard to find
      thank you

    7. Forgot to mention I took them for one week first four days felt great then headaches started and couldn’t sleep at night quit taking immediately. So the real question is are they real or fake I don’t know. But they supposedly passed the insert of the real ones.
      My opinion is buyer be very careful any first symptom of a side effect quit immediately!

    8. I got the same results, I went from 190 to 150 in 5 months. And like you got Cotton mouth, but I stopped taking them when I got to my weight I wanted. My brother in law took them as well and lost over 40lbs. He got really skinny and stopped taking them as well he didn’t workout and he ate semi decent, and also had cottonmouth. It works but like watchdog this is rejected due to all the claims and unknowns of what is in the pills.

    9. Dear Kat
      where did you order them I have tried them before they are fantastic but too many fake websites now i need the original ones could you please tell us the website’s name?

  54. just wnated to say thank you for this review. i know alot of people who have tried this product. granted theyve gotten some great results. but what works for 1 person may not work for another.. not to mention the ingredients..there are alot of weight lost pills that can cause more harm than help. so im happy i read this.. thank you
