Sinetrim Facts

  • Sinetrim is made by BioGenetic Laboratories – a subsidiary company of Isatori
  • Each bottle contains 45 servings – just 22 days supply
  • Comes with a diet plan based on the Mediterranean diet

Sinetrim is a multi purpose weight loss supplement that may act as a fat burner and carb blocker combined. It comes with a free healthy eating plan based on the Mediterranean diet, which is touted as a healthy lifestyle option just about everywhere.

The Mediterranean Diet contains fruit, veggies, wholegrains, seafood and little red meat and is regarded as one of the best lifestyle diets in the world.

This supplement is designed to support this diet and is high in antioxidants and weight loss ingredients designed to help you burn fat and prevent carbs from adding to your weight.

The principle ingredient is a branded supplement called Sinetrol. This is made by a French company and sometimes shows up in weight loss products – it is not available to buy over the counter in its own right.

Sinetrol contains oranges and grapefruit extracts, described, as Mediterranean that the makers say will enhance the release of fatty acids. It also contains Guarana a South American fruit extract that contains caffeine so should provide an energy lift following taking.

According to the product information, Sinetrol is rich in polyphenols and flavenols (types of antioxidants) that directly contribute to breaking down fat. The formula also contains White Mulberry fruit extract, which may be effective at reducing the absorption rate of carbohydrates. There is some evidence that White mulberry is a natural carb blocker.

The final part of the formula is green tea extract, which is believed to increase the speed of the metabolism because of its high levels of antioxidants. Green tea is well known for providing healthy support to weight loss and has many health benefits.

Antioxidants are chemicals that block the oxidation of other cells and can inhibit the action of free radicals – rogue cells that can cause illness and diseases.

The three components of this diet pill look pretty good. We love natural ingredients derived from fruit and we like seeing clinical evidence that back up the claims of advertising.

The Sinetrim product information provides links to clinical evidence but the downside is that much of the explanation provided in the advertising is very hard to understand.

However, the ingredients profile looks safe and as it is backed with clinical evidence, it looks convincing.

How to Take Sinetrim

Take one serving (2 capsules) twice daily with a full glass of water, preferably on an empty stomach, about 30 minutes prior to meals.

Take one serving upon waking (before breakfast), and take a second serving between lunch and dinner.

Please read the entire label carefully before use and follow the diet plan.

Sinetrim is made by Bio Genetic Laboratories a US supplement company based in Colorado. In turn, Sinetrim comes under the umbrella of companies owned by Isatori Inc. This is a major US supplement company with a presence on the US stock market.

Biogenetic Laboratories are a reputable company who do not engage in any dodgy billing practices. The company has a lively Facebook presence where you can find out about BioGenetic supplements and engage directly with the company.

Sinetrim Concerns:

  • The product information is confusing. Are we being blinded by science?
  • There is nothing in this supplement to justify the price tag. It could be a waste of money
  • Although it comes with a free diet plan, we have been unable to see full details. Is it as good as advertised?

What Does Sinetrim Claim To Do?

We confess to being blinded by science with some of the explanations about this supplement. According to the advertising,

The main ingredient, Sinetrol, is rich in polyphenolic compounds, including flavonoids from narigin, narirutin, and hesperidin along with anthocyanins, such as cyandin 3 glycoside, derived from special Mediterranean citrus fruits consisting of orange, red orange, and grapefruit.

It continues;

The lipolytic activity displayed by Sinetrol due to its ability to inhibit phosphodiesterase confirms reductions in abdominal fat, waist size, and hip circumference measurements. Lipolysis is a catabolic process leading to the breakdown of triglycerides stored in fat cells (adipocytes) causing the release of free fatty acids (FFA) and glycerol. The flavonoids in Sinetrol have been reported to promote fatty acid oxidation, which means that FFA’s are being used to produce energy.

We are always concerned when the explanations about supplements are not written in plain English. Surely if the company wanted us to understand, this would have been written in a way that most of us could follow.

However, there are eight key features:

  • Reduced Abdominal Fat
  • Reduced Waist Size
  • Reduced Hip Circumference
  • Increased FFA Release
  • Decreased Body Weight (Weight Loss)
  • Decreased Overall Body Fat
  • Reduced Inflammation
  • Reduced Oxidative Stress

The product information provides references to the various clinical trials but no direct links. You are going to have to be keen with plenty of time on your hands to check these out.

However, the results are summarised for you:

CLINICAL STUDIES on the key ingredients, used over 12 weeks, suggest it may help you:

  • Reduce abdominal fat by up to 9.73%
  • Reduce inches off your hips and waist
  • Increase free fatty acid release over 9x times

So What Is Sinetrim and What Are The Ingredients?

Sinetrim is a multi purpose diet pill that may provide general support to weight loss. Each serving is equal to two capsules.

  • Sinetrol XPUR Mediterranean Citrus Extract (450mg): This contains grapefruit extract, sweet orange fruit extract, blood orange fruit extract and Gurana. There are two quoted clinical trials for this trademarked supplement. One to test effectiveness, the other to test safety. No adverse effects were observed and in the test for effectiveness, two groups of just 10 people were given Sinetrol to test for its lipolytic (breaking down of fat cells) effect. This was measured by how many free fatty acids were released. The control group lost 5.2 kilos of weight collectively over 12 weeks compared with the 10 people in the placebo group who lost just 2.2 kilos so the SINETROL obviously did work for this group. According to the clinical information, these results suggest that SINETROL has a strong lipolytic effect, which is made possible by inhibiting cAMP-PDE (the messengers in the body that regulate sugar and lipid metabolism).

  • White Mulberry Fruit Extract (Morus Alba) (200mg): According to the clinical investigation referenced in the advertising, Mulberry (morus alba) is shown to reduce the absorption rate of carbohydrates, thereby reducing the amount of sugar that could potentially build up and convert to fat. White Mulberry is also a source of antioxidants. However, in truth, clinical testing has been limited and mainly relates to animal testing. While mulberry may have health benefits, according to some sources, ‘mulberry for weight loss is not only unproven but implausible.’

  • Green Tea (decaffeinated) (75mg): There are numerous clinical studies that have been carried out on green tea. Clinical research has found that green tea has proven health benefits and the antioxidants (ECGC and polyphenols) found to have anti obesity and fat burning properties because of the effects upon the metabolism. The herbal derivative from green tea leaves, Camellia Sinensis is reported to decrease high levels of fat, like cholesterol and triglycerides, in the blood (hyperlipidemia) while boosting energy and metabolic rate.

So What Does All This Mean?

Sinetrim looks to be a safe supplement. The branded ingredient Sinetrol has been tested for safety and we have been unable to find any real health issues with Mulberry or Green Tea. However, there is no real evidence that it will work in the way as described. The quoted results for the Sinetrol trial were taken after 12 weeks and only resulted in 5.2 kilos (11.46lbs) shared between 10 people, working out at just over 1lb each in three months.

However, the high antioxidants of green tea and mulberry may provide support to weight loss.

Does Sinetrim Have Any Side Effects?

There do not appear to be any side effects to taking this supplement and there are no health warnings provided in the product information.

Caution:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid supplements if you are pregnant or breast feeding.

Do not take Sinetrim if you are taking medication – the supplement contains grapefruit extract, which interacts with most medicines.

Speak to your doctor first if you have a medical condition such as diabetes because Sinetrim may change blood sugar levels.

Any Sinetrim Reviews From Customers?

There is no independent customer feedback available for Sinetrim so we cannot bring you any true-life experiences about taking this supplement.

So Does Sinetrim Work?

We cannot see Sinetrim causing the advertised weight loss results. The quoted figures of, ‘Reduce abdominal fat by up to 9.73%’ for example are fairly meaningless without other information. ‘Up to’ could mean anything and the clinical test into Sinetrol suggested that it did do something but that the results were fairly minimal. Losing a pound in 12 weeks is not impressive.

However, the high levels of antioxidants may help support your weight loss so if you use this in combination with a diet and exercise plan you may find that it helps. Although we have been unable to access the provided Mediterranean diet plan, if it follows the usual pattern of fresh food over processed meals and high amounts of fruit, vegetables and oily fish, it will probably cause you to lose weight.

It is highly likely that adopting a Mediterranean style diet will help you lose weight regardless of whether you take this supplement.

Where Can I Buy Sinetrim?

Sinetrim may be available from retail stores such as GNC, Vitamin World and the Vitamin Shoppe. You can also buy online via their online outlets.

You can buy Sinetrim direct from the BioGenetic website. One bottle of 90 capsules (45 servings or 22 days supply) costs $39.99.

What About A Guarantee

No guarantee is on offer.

Watchdog Verdict

There is nothing very special about Sinetrim. We like that it seems safe and comes with some details about clinical results but when you look into these, they are less than impressive. The principle ingredient Sinetrol caused on average just 1lb weight loss over 3 months so it hardly seems worth bothering with.

That said fuelling your body with extra antioxidants is good for health so you may find this supplement does provide some support for your weight loss and increases your health and metabolism; great for health and for weight loss.

If you use this supplement in combination with the Mediterranean diet, you may lose weight if you stick to it. We have been unable to access the Sinetrim version of the Mediterranean diet but we feel that this will probably be the key to weight loss rather than this supplement.

To save money you could just buy a book and follow the diet without the supplement and you probably will get results.

Sinetrim is expensive. At a cent under $40 for three weeks supply, this supplement is pricey and we cannot see how it justifies this price. Customers appear to share this opinion because there is zero feedback.

Although Sinetrim has some good points, our opinion is that it is just not good enough to add to our approved list, so it is an easy decision. We reject Sinetrim.
