The thought of losing weight while you snooze in bed is appealing but will it work and is this supplement safe? Added to this the product website looks a bit dodgy and is raising concerns.
We take an in depth look at Euro Botanicals Sleep N Slim to find out whether this supplement.
Sleep N Slim is a weight loss drink that you take before bedtime. It comes in the form of a liquid which you dilute in a further 8 oz of water, in the same way as you would drink a fruit cordial or squash.
This is unusual in the supplement world but maybe this should not be surprising when looking at anything to do with Sleep N Slim.
The formula is based on the work of so called “anti ageing expert” Dr Ronald Klatz described as a physician, medical scientist, futurist, and innovator.
He is a self styled authority in the new clinical science of anti-ageing medicine and has written several books about this. He is popular in the USA with many people following his teachings in the hope that they can avoid ageing.
Dr Ronald Klatz is a believer in taking Human Growth hormone for anti ageing. This growth hormone is secreted by the pituitary gland, a tiny gland located in the brain which controls, growth, sleep patterns, sex drive and other important functions.
Sleep N Slim contains a blend of amino acids, vitamins and minerals that are claimed to stimulate this important gland into producing more HGH as a natural way to stay more youthful looking. Effects are supposed to increase muscle mass and decrease body fat, improve skin and help promote healthy sleep patterns.
Sleep N Slim comes from an American company called Euro Botanicals who despite the name is based in the USA.
According to the “about us” information, all supplements are manufactured in an FDA approved facility in Texas. The registered address is based at a PO Box in Arvada Colorado so there is very little real information about this company.
The Euro Botanicals website is extremely basic and dated looking. The company information states that Euro Botanicals was established in 1997 and it appears that the website has never been updated since this time.
Clunky and hard to navigate, it does not create a very good impression. Even more worryingly, the site is listed as a threat site and has been listed as having malware. Web security experts urge caution.
We looked into Dr Ronald Klatz and found that he was fined $5000 in 2000 for passing himself off as a doctor in Illinois. His degree from the Central America Health Sciences University School of Medicine in Belize was not recognised by the state.
Looking into this it seems that a MD qualification can be awarded after just 88 weeks of training so it seems that Dr Klatz may not be the medical genius he claims to be!
Add 1 tablespoon of the Sleep N Slim liquid to 8 oz of water at bedtime. It is important to shake the bottle for 15 seconds to thoroughly mix the ingredients before adding to the water. Take before bed 3- 4 hours after eating.
According to the Sleep N Slim product information, the aim of this supplement is to encourage the release of the body’s growth hormones:
The goal of Euro Botanicals was to develop a nutritional supplement product that would work in much the same way as other growth hormone releasers – but naturally.
The information continues:
Stimulating the pituitary gland with natural supplements gives you the benefits of replacement therapy without the high cost.
While it is true that some Hollywood A Listers are believed to take Human Growth Hormone injections, this expensive treatment is not exactly mainstream therapy for most of us!
The advertising claims many benefits:
Sleep-N-Slim can work while you are sleeping to help you:
Sleep N Slim is a supplement that is based on the theories of Dr. R. Klatz in his book and is believed to help increase HGH for weight loss and anti ageing.
Serving size is equal to one tablespoon. Ingredient quantities are not specified.
Other Main Ingredients:
We cannot see how this supplement will increase your body’s supplies of Human Growth Hormone.
The problem is that a person’s natural supply of H.G.H. declines with age and we cannot see this supplement putting back the clock. If this supplement really was the elixir of youth we would certainly all know about it!
A 20-year-old will produce more than twice as much H.G.H. as he or she will at 40 and the losses continue from there, at the rate of about 15 percent per decade. Taking HGH injections may temporarily delay this process but this supplement is very unlikely to do anything at all.
The amino acid blend is based on the findings of the so called doctor Dr Klatz who is not actually a real doctor and although some alternative medicine fans may believe in his theories, scientific evidence just does not agree.
Sleep N Slim may cause side effects. We don’t know the ingredient amounts so have no way of assessing the strength of this supplement.
Potential side effects may include:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Aloe is known to cause birth defects so it is important to avoid this supplement if there is any chance you may be pregnant. Speak to your doctor first if you suffer from an existing medical condition or are taking prescription medication.
Euro Botanicals does not provide any health advice or warnings which is of concern.
We have been unable to find any independent customer reviews.
Sleep N Slim will not work in the way as described. It will not help you sleep and it will not help you get slim or look younger. Although it is supposedly based on the work carried out by Dr Klatz this is no real recommendation.
Dr Klatz has founded the American Academy of Anti Ageing but despite the impressive title and the fact that the organisation awards certificates to so called practitioners and anti aging experts, it has been dismissed as quackery by the medical establishment.
You can only buy Sleep N Slim direct from the Euro Botanicals website.
1 x 16oz bottle costs $39.95. This should be sufficient for around a month’s supply.
Shipping and handling to US addresses costs an additional $7.95
You can also buy 2 x bottles of Sleep B Slim ($79.95) plus a vitamin supplement called Auralife for the combined price of $112.80 including shipping.
Sleep N Slim is not available to customers outside the USA
Sleep N Slim is not covered by a guarantee.
Sleep N Slim is a very unimpressive looking supplement. We haven’t seen a website like the Euro Botanicals website for decades but today it looks poorly maintained and out of date. Even worse it has been listed by web security experts at having malware. None of this gives the customer any confidence that this company knows what it is doing or is safe to buy from.
When it comes to the supplement, it is equally bad. There is zero information about ingredient quantities and some of these are a risk to health. Aloe Vera and Collagen are very dubious ingredients that are known to cause serious side effects when taken internally.
Finally, this supplement is not going to work in the way as advertised. It will not help you sleep. It will not help prevent ageing, build muscle or any other of the claims. Sleep N Slim is based on the work of a man described by many as a quack who uses a pretend medical qualification to pass himself off as a doctor.
It is an easy decision. There is no way we would take this potentially dangerous supplement ourselves so we would never recommend anyone else to try it. We reject Sleep N Slim.
