Thermogenic fat-burners usually contain some form of stimulant, which means they should not be taken in the evening if you want a good night’s sleep. But NDS Slim-Tox has gone a different way; it is stim-free and actually claims to aid restful sleep along with weight-loss and appetite suppression. The sleep aspect certainly seems to work, the ingredients will most likely help you to sleep well, but the same can’t be said for the fat-loss claims. NDS Slim-Tox is quite an expensive product too, unless you can get by on smaller dosages.
We take a look to see if Slim-Tox really can aid weight loss.
With such a large variety of ingredients, this diet aid can also claim a number of different purposes, hence why it is described as versatile by the manufacturer. Slim-Tox contains several natural laxatives, which can aid weight loss through increased bowel movements, although this is not permanent weight loss. Customers should ensure they consume enough water throughout the day to avoid dehydration and constipation.
With several ingredients that treat digestive problems, including gas and bloating, this could also improve the consumer’s silhouette. There are also several herbs that are known to aid sleep and relaxation, which can be useful when taking stimulant supplements during the daytime. As sleep is also important for regulation of stress levels, and for maintaining a healthy metabolic rate, this could provide better conditions for weight loss.
In terms of its effects upon weight loss, this diet pill is not likely to have much of an effect. However, the combination of ingredients could benefit those who exercise regularly, as they aid sleep and are thought to reduce pain and swelling.
Laxatives can cause diarrhoea and loose stools. If you do not drink enough water when taking NDS Slim-Tox you could develop constipation. Stomach pains, gas and bloating are also possible.
There are ingredients in this product that could increase the chances of miscarriage, so do not consume this product if you are pregnant or trying to conceive.
One bottle of NDS Slim-Tox costs $59.99 plus $7.95 shipping.

The manufacturers of Slim-Tox provide a detailed description of how the product works, including a recommendation to pair it with one of a selection of their thermogenic products.
Slim-Tox™ provides support for sleep (Chamomile, Melatonin) toning (CLA, Safflower Oil), appetite control (Garcinia Cambogia), digestive health (Psyllium Seed Husk, Lactobacillus acidophilus) and adrenal and thyroid function (Holy Basil).* Slim-Tox™ is an essential diet product because it reinforces your daytime dieting efforts by providing an added night time dieting support. With a thermogenic used during the day (Cardio Cuts®, EvoLean®, Intensify® XTREME, or LipoRUSH® DS) to help with energy and for dropping the pounds, Slim-Tox™ can be used at night time, and help your thermogenic work even better the next day. You can also use Slim-Tox™ if you are cycling off stimulants/thermogenics, but still want to support and maintain your dieting efforts. Its formulation helps put healthy bacteria into your body for better overall digestive processing and health, which helps cleanse the body and rid your system of bad fats and foods. Another benefit of Slim-Tox™ is that it supports adrenal and thyroid function, which helps fight exhaustion and fatigue the next day. Slim-Tox™ helps support you in achieving your health, fitness and weight loss goals.
Slim-Tox does seem to aid sleep and digestion. However, we do not believe that it will aid weight loss in any significant way– there are simply not enough ingredients that will promote this. Garcinia Cambogia and Guggul may aid weight loss, but the clinical evidence is still contradictory, and their potency is unclear.

Slim-Tox has a stimulant free formula, making it ideal for night time use. Whilst consumers are advised to start with one capsule per night, taken before bed, they can increase their dose to three capsules, to be taken together. The ingredient quantities listed are per three capsules. The product consists of several proprietary formulas, and so there is not information available for the individual quantities of each ingredient.
Laxatives can cause diarrhoea and loose stools. Consumers who are not drinking enough water could develop constipation. Stomach pains, gas and bloating are also possible.
There are ingredients in this product that could increase the chances of miscarriage, and so pregnant women, or those trying to conceive should not consume this product.
The company provides the following warning for customers who are using Slim-Tox:
Keep out of reach of children. For adult use only at bedtime. This product contains Senna. Read and follow directions carefully. Do not exceed recommended dose. Not intended for use by persons under the age of 18. Do not use if pregnant or lactating. If you are under the care of a physician, taking medication, or have a medical condition (such as high blood pressure), consult your physician before taking this product. Do not use if you have or develop diarrhoea, loose stools, or abdominal pain because Senna may worsen these conditions and be harmful to your health. Consult your physician if you have frequent diarrhoea. Do not use in conjunction with alcoholic beverages, when driving a vehicle, or while operating machinery. Do not use if tamper resistant seal is broken. Store in a cool dry place. Avoid excessive heat.
GNC.com have a section for customers to leave reviews. For this product, there are only three, although they do all give the product a good ranking of four or five stars.
I take one pill after my last meal of the day. It really helps with weight loss (it works better if you exercise using an elliptical bike for example because I’ve tried it) but the side effect I experience is colon irritation although it surely helps with digestion and excretion. I recommend it for sure! I’ve lost weight than with any other GNC product I’ve used!
I took 2 capsules every evening for a month. I was looking for a product to help with bowel movements. This product helped with that, but it also gave me energy in the morning. What a wonderful plus!
This was my second time trying this type of product. the previous version the employee at gnc sold me was called Detox and I was forced to return it because of the awful smell! but the changed it out for this one which was the newer one and I must say it’s only been 5 days and I wake up feeling more refreshed and no issues with running to the bathroom every 5 mins!
Customers can add tags to their reviews to summarise pros and cons of the product. One customer tagged ‘tastes bad’, whilst another tagged ‘irriated colon’, but other than these two comments, the tags are all positive.
For deliveries that are incorrect or missing an item, customers need to contact the company within two days of delivery, and the company will send out the correct products.
Unopened and unused items may be returned within 30 days of the order date for a full refund or exchange of ‘the purchase price, minus the shipping, handling, and/or other charges.’ Customers need to include the original invoice in the package for accurate returns.
Each bottle of 90 capsules of Slim-Tox costs $59.99 from NDS Nutrition. Shipping is flat fee of $7.95.
The product can also be purchased from GNC.com, at a price of $59.99 per bottle. As usual, GNC.com offer a slight discount to GNC members, with the member price for Slim-Tox being $56.99. The delivery charges for GNC are a flat fee of $3.99, a small saving compared to the NDS Nutrition offer.
Overall, we would not recommend Slim-Tox as a weight loss aid, as there is simply not enough evidence to suggest that it does significantly impact upon weight loss. However, as a sleep and digestion aid, it appears to work fairly well. Because some of the ingredients relieve mild pain and reduce swelling, dieters who are exercising regularly may consider it because it will relieve some of the aches following exercise, as well as promoting regular sleep and digestive patterns.
Pregnant women should not take this product, because of several ingredients that could increase the risk of miscarriage.
Slim-Tox is also incredibly expensive, unless the consumer finds that a small dose is all that is required for the desired effects.
