Below we take an in-depth look at Nutrilite Slimmetry Dietary Supplement to see just how effective it really is.
Nutrilite Slimmetry Dietary Supplement is a product manufactured by Amway, a company based in the USA. According to the manufacturers, Nutrilite Slimmetry Dietary Supplement ‘enhances fat and weight loss when used with a low-calorie diet and exercise’.
Amway can be contacted using the information found on the official website. Customers who have ordered through an independent sales consultant should consult them first with any questions, and for them, contacting the company directly should only be done in the case of poor customer service.
Amway operate as a direct selling business, with independent Sales Consultants selling products and earning a commission on sales. Whilst the company states that this is a low-risk, low cost opportunity for anyone to start a business of their own, we have found that most direct selling opportunities such as this are not profitable for most people. Only the most dedicated will make a living from this type of business plan.
They state that there are three ways to earn money; from the retail margin on products sold, through monthly bonuses based upon sales performance, and through growth incentives (which usually means recruiting other sellers and earning a small commission of their sales as well). Companies that operate using this business plan are often compared to pyramid schemes, especially if they focus more on recruiting more sales consultants over selling products to customers. This scheme requires a $62 registration fee, and new recruits are strongly encouraged to ‘invest’ in a product kit costing $83.99 that contains a range of products and samples.
Take two tablets 20 to 30 minutes before meals, three times per day.
The manufacturers of Nutrilite Slimmetry Dietary Supplement claim that it ‘enhances fat and weight loss when used with a low-calorie diet and exercise’.
The manufacturers also list the following benefits:
This amazing supplement contains four all-natural extracts that have been traditionally used in cultures around the world for their natural properties:
- Green Tea contains EGCG, which is used in a variety of natural weight-loss products. It is believed to support a healthy metabolism.
- Yerba Mate is used to promote a feeling of satiety.
- Birch Leaf has been used to make a tea, while birch sap is believed to have tonic qualities in Belarus, Russia, the Baltic States, Finland, and parts of northern China.
- Coleus Forskohlii is effective at aiding fat loss.
The ingredients used in Nutrilite Slimmetry Dietary Supplement are listed below. The official website for the product does not provided any ingredient quantities, but the amazon sales page includes images of the back of the product’s bottle, which does provide this information. The ingredient quantities below are per serving of two capsules; customers should remember that they are instructed to take 6 capsules per day, and so the daily total will be three times higher than listed here. What is interesting to note is that each ingredient is mixed with maltodextrin, a filler, and so the actual doses of the pure active ingredients are unknown.
Green tea and yerba mate are both sources of caffeine, but they both also contain other compounds that may aid weight loss. Caffeine increases the body’s metabolic rate by stimulating the central nervous system. EGCG, a catechin found in green tea, increases thermogenesis in the body, and this increased heat output burns additional calories. The effects of green tea are relatively small, but significant.One study found that participants who drank beverages high in catechins extracted from green tea (690 mg/d) lost significantly more weight and body fat than those who drank beverages low in catechins (22 mg/d).
The main study that has investigated the use of coleus forskohlii and any link with weight loss showed that the participants did not lose any weight, but at least they did not gain weight. They reported feeling less hunger, but there was not any real or significant appetite suppression, as the calorific value of their consumed meals remained largely the same. Essentially the study showed that Forskolin is not a metabolism boosting ingredient, and that its use led to no weight loss in any regard at all.
Birch leaves appear to be a diuretic, and so could reduce bloating, leading to a slimmer silhouette. However, in general they will not aid weight loss.
There are numerous different side effects that could occur from using Nutrilite Slimmetry Dietary Supplement.
The diet pill contains two potential sources of caffeine, green tea, and yerba mate. Consuming large quantities of caffeine can lead to headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness, and insomnia. Green tea can also cause constipation.
Possible side effects of coleus forskohlii include headaches, a decrease in blood pressure, increased heart rate, heart palpitations, dizziness, blurred vision, nausea, fatigue, lack of concentration, heart burn, indigestion, and stomach cramps.
Birch leaves appear to act as a diuretic, and so will cause increased urination. Their use can also lead to dehydration which causes other side effects, including headaches. Serious dehydration is very dangerous, and so consumers should ensure that they drink plenty of water whilst taking this product.
Not suitable for those aged 18 or under. Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone suffering from any heart related health issues, including but not limited to high blood pressure. Not suitable for anyone who is sensitive to caffeine and other stimulants. Consumers should avoid other stimulants and all other sources of caffeine whilst taking this product to minimise the chances of side effects. Stop use of this diet pill at least 2 weeks before any scheduled surgery.
There are numerous customer reviews for Nutrilite Slimmetry Dietary Supplement on amazon, where the product is sold.
My daughter has been using Slimmetry for about a month with a healthy diet. She has been losing about 2-3 pounds a week without even exercising. The product seems to be working. She does not have any side-effects and feels very energetic. This is my second order.
I felt nauseous anytime I took these pills. I never finished the bottle.
I used it before i liked it ,it was few years again so my sister was using it too she had a really bad pain on lower stomach..near the hips and she went to the emergency room but they couldn’t figure out what it was so I started using again last month and i had the same pain..now my sis and I don’t use it at all and she knows where the pain came from but other than that it works and u can lose weight…any-who ain’t going take it again
I guess this is too strong for me. I notice it that I was more hungry, yes it gave energy but i think because of all the caffeine. i have to mention that i was taking it with nutrilite glucose. so I have to stop it at that rate i was going, I would it gain more weight because I was more hungry. I tried to return it the seller will not take it back. what a waste of money.:(
This product is amazing. With a low calorie diet and exercise it work wonders. It does not give me the shakes not does it make my heart beat uncontrollably like some of these other weight loss supplements.
Customer reviews are split between customers that lost weight whilst using the product, and customers that experienced side effects whilst using the product.
The ingredients list is a mixture of two ingredients that are clinically proven to aid weight loss, and two ingredients that will not aid weight loss. Green tea has strong clinical support, but is still considered to have a ‘small but significant’ effect. Yerba mate also has clinical support. Both are sources of caffeine, which will mildly increase the metabolism, and boost energy levels and alertness. Birch leaf is a diuretic, and so may reduce bloating. However, it will not have any impact upon fat stored in the body, and can dehydrate the consumer.
The two effective active ingredients used in this diet pill could aid some weight loss, but there are other diet pills available that include only clinically proven ingredients, rather than using a mixture of effective and ineffective products.
Nutrilite Slimmetry Dietary Supplement can be purchased from AmWay’s online shop. A single bottle costs $45.45 plus delivery.
Customers can also order the product through independent sales consultants.
The product is also sold on amazon. There are several different stockists that operate through amazon to sell this product, and so prices do vary slightly, although they are all much cheaper than the prices offer direct from Amway. The cheapest we located is $25.46 per bottle, with free shipping.
Each bottle contains 180 capsules, but as customers are instructed to take 6 capsules per day, each bottle only provides a 30 day supply.
There is no money-back guarantee for this product. Customers are instructed to follow the instructions detailed on the invoice that would have arrived with their order. This invoice also includes a return label that should be attached to the outside of the returns package; as it is a prepaid label, consumers do not have to pay to return unwanted items.
The customer reviews and comments reveal that this product does cause a range of side effects. This is unsurprising, considering that the product contains a diuretic, as well as two sources of caffeine, with green tea being used in a high dose. Whilst two of the ingredients used in this diet pill are somewhat effective at aiding weight loss through increasing thermogenesis and boosting the metabolism, the other two ingredients are not proven to aid weight loss at all. Birch is a diuretic, and so gives the consumer the false impression of fast weight loss, but in reality they are only losing water weight, which will be regained quickly after they stop taking Nutrilite Slimmetry Dietary Supplement.
Whilst the manufacturers offer free postage on returns, they do not specify exactly what their returns policy is; they give no maximum period during which returns will be accepted, and do not specify whether they accept opened or used products that are returned to them.
Overall, Nutrilite Slimmetry Dietary Supplement appears to cause a wide range of side effects, but could aid some weight loss for consumers who are lucky enough to not suffer from these side effects. The product is significantly more expensive when purchased direct from the manufacturer, but it is unclear what the returns policy is when the product is purchased from a third party. Overall, we do not recommend Nutrilite Slimmetry Dietary Supplement to our readers.
