We take an in depth look into NV Clinical to find out
NV Clinical is a weight loss supplement that many people in the USA have heard of following a TV advertising campaign.
It offers a fast start to weight loss, helps you see noticeable differences within the first two weeks and promises to increase your energy levels right away.
NV Clinical contains mainly fruit extracts in a proprietary blend called NV Super Fruit Complex.
Fruits include cranberry, Goji, Litchi, pomegranate and Bilberry, all ingredients that contain antioxidants and vitamins so may provide general health support. It contains grape seed extract too believed to have numerous health and weight loss benefits.
This part of the formula also contains caffeine so you notice an energy lift to this supplement depending upon your caffeine tolerance. Each serving contains 225mg of caffeine so will be similar in effect to just over 2 cups of coffee.
The final component of this formula is Turmeric – an Indian spice best known for its bright yellow colour. Turmeric may also have benefits to weight loss.
The second formula contained in NV Clinical is the NV Weight loss Complex.
This contains just two natural ingredients a flower extract called Indian Sphaeranthus and an Indonesian fruit called Mangosteen.
Indian Sphaeranthus is a herbal medicinal plant – also known as the East Indian Globe Thistle. This is best known for skin irritations but there is some evidence that when combined with Mangosteen it may help break down body fat.
This ingredient pairing has undergone a clinical study and results seem to suggest that it enhances weight loss by up to three times when compared to a placebo.
NV is a well known US brand which comes from Canadian based supplements company .Wellnx Life Sciences.
Other Wellnx brands include Slimquick – we covered Slimquick Gummies in a previous review. There is also Ultimate Supplements and Phytogenix.
Wellnx have a poor track record in the Diet Pill industry with a string of high profile lawsuits filed against them which has cost them million dollars in fines.
Fraudulently marketed several products promising rapid weight loss and enhanced beauty
And claimed that their products had ingredients that they did not and fabricated consumer “testimonials” extolling the benefits of the products.
We covered NV Diet in a previous review and were not impressed with what we saw.
Other NV product, NV Sprinkles – a chromium supplement you sprinkle on food. The NV name is a clever play on words, used here to mean “Envy”
Take the first serving (3 caplets) in the morning with breakfast & the second serving (3 caplets) 6 hours later with an afternoon meal or snack, each time with 8oz of water.
If you are sensitive to caffeine, start gradually by taking 1 caplet per serving in the morning & afternoon on the first day, 2 caplets per serving in the morning & afternoon on the second day, & 3 caplets per serving on the third day & beyond.
Do not exceed 6 caplets in a 24-hour period.
NV should be used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet & regular exercise program.
Do not take NV within 5 hours of bedtime. Read the entire label before use & follow directions.
Basketball Wives star Tani Roman is the NV Clinical poster girl and the star of the TV advertising campaign. In a magazine interview, she states that NV Clinical and an exercise regime helped her lose 7lbs in two weeks.
According to the advertising on Walmart:
The fast weight loss supplements contain a special complex that will help you take off that unwanted weight…give your body a new shape and look
Key Ingredients Backed by Two Clinical Studies
However, there are no further details about this. Nobody selling NV Clinical provides any proof to back up these claims of clinical evidence.
NV Clinical is a general-purpose weight loss supplement that contains two proprietary formulas so we cannot provide a full ingredients breakdown of quantities.
Each serving is equal to three capsules.
NV Weight Loss Complex (400mg):
NV Superfruit Complex (309 mg):
The weight loss formula is the active part of the blend and there is some evidence that Mangosteen / Indian Sphaeranthus helps weight loss although exactly how it works is not explained in the clinical evidence. We feel this needs further investigation before anyone can guarantee that it works. That said it may do something and it seems safe.
The claims that this blend is unique are not true. We have seen Mangosteen / Indian Sphaeranthus in another product called Meratrim and it seems that NV have used some of Meratrim’s clinical evidence in their own advertising.
The Superfruit Complex may have some benefit to health although it is important to note that the dominant ingredient here is caffeine (225mg) leaving only 84mg shared out between the other ingredients.
In our opinion, you would probably get much greater benefit by simply including more fresh fruit into your daily diet.
NV Clinical looks pretty safe which is a real point in its favour.
NV Clinical looks pretty safe but it may cause potential side effects including :
Not suitable for individuals under 18.
Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding.
Seek advice from your doctor first if you have any existing health issues or are taking prescription medication.
This supplement may cause drug interactions
There are customer reviews for NV Clinical.
Some customers are happy. This reviewer felt that it needed to be combined with a healthy eating and exercise plan as well as another NV product.
These pills (along with the sprinkles) have helped me lose over 25lbs. You do have to exercise & eat better. However this is the best system I’ve ever tried
I had this product before and it really works. You just have to keep the weight off yourself
Not everyone is satisfied and there is a high amount of negative opinion:
This product does not work! It’s high caffeine concentrated pills. Nothing special. You could drink strong coffee all day and have the same effect.
This product did not cut appetite like I thought
It did not work. It was a waste of money.
The good point is that nobody has mentioned any adverse effects.
NV Clinical may have a slight effect upon weight loss and if you use it in combination with a diet and exercise plan, you may find it offers some support.
However, this will probably be down to your own efforts rather than the effects of this supplement and we cannot see it working in the way as described.
Although this supplement is backed by two so called clinical trials, one of these was carried out on rats for another company (Meratrim) simply to assess side effects. The trial quoted by the advertising where people lost weight following taking 400mg of the contents of the weight loss blend, lacks any real information about how it works.
In addition, the Superfruit Blend is misleading. The principle ingredient is caffeine not fruit extracts and in our opinion, you would probably get the same effects from eating some fruit and drinking some coffee.
You can buy NV Clinical from a range of outlets across the USA including Walmart stores.
It is also available online.
1 bottle of 60 caplets (20 servings or 10 days supply) costs $19.88 from Walmart.
It is available from other suppliers including Amazon USA for around the same price depending on seller and availability.
NV Clinical does not come with a money-back guarantee.
NV Clinical is well known to US customers following a TV advertising campaign and the fact that it is on sale in the shops and stores such as Walmart makes this a familiar brand. However, there is nothing that is classy or reputable about it even if it is endorsed by a minor celebrity.
NV have claimed that this supplement has undergone two clinical trials, which is misleading because these appear to have been carried out for a rival company called Meratrim.
In addition, Wellnx has run into numerous legal battles and have been severely fined for making unproven and misleading claims about their supplements. In some cases, ingredients have been added to supplements without showing up on the label.
That said, it seems likely that this supplement is safe. Customers have not complained about side effects and some have felt that it has supported weight loss. There were some positive effects in the clinical testing and although these have not been fully explained, it may mean that NV Clinical may do something to support weight loss.
However, we are sceptical. Wellnx have a pretty bad track record and we cannot really see why this supplement should be any different.
Overall, we feel that NV Clinical looks alright and is probably safe but in our opinion, it is just not good enough to add to our approved list.
