We take an in depth look at Slim Vits to find out more.
We are extremely concerned about Slim Vits. This supplement is just not safe. The listed ingredients in unknown quantities look bad enough but added to this; remember that it probably contains additional ingredients too.
Take this supplement and you are gambling with your health.
The fact that it is manufactured in China is also very worrying. Chinese diet pills are well known for being dangerous and containing added ingredients, most commonly Sibutamine that do not show up on the label. That this supplement contains bitter orange extract as one if its listed ingredients is also a concern.
Not all Chinese diet pills are bad. Recently the Chinese Government has stepped in with some legislation to tighten up on the diet pills industry. All supplements that conform to safety standards carry a Blue Hat logo. Slim Vits does not display this vital logo so you have no assurances whatsoever about ingredients or safety.

Potential side effects include chest pains, heart palpitations, increased heart rate, increase in blood pressure, headaches, total loss of appetite, jitteriness, insomnia, thirst, dehydration, stomach discomfort, diarrhoea, constipation, increased risk of heart attacks/strokes, and may cause birth defects if taken while pregnant.
1 month’s supply (amount of capsules not disclosed) costs £24.99, €34.99 or $39.00 and includes shipping.
Many people find it hard to believe that anything offered openly for sale can be dangerous, especially from well-known sites such as Amazon but make no mistake; the diet pills industry is unregulated. There have been cases of people dying following taking supplements like this.
Yes, some people have been pleased with weight loss results but in our opinion, it just is not worth the health risk.
We can find no redeeming points about this supplement so it is an easy decision.
We reject Slim Vits.

Slim Vits is a weight loss supplement that is advertised as an appetite suppressant and a way to change your health, body and mind!
It contains five ingredients and although the ingredient quantities are not provided in the product information, this supplement looks strong.
The principle ingredient appears to be Bitter Orange extract. This ingredient, also known as citrus Aurantium, contains a powerful stimulant called synephrine which increases the body’s stress hormones and causes the “fight or flight” response. This is believed to be effective for weight loss because it increases energy levels and decreases appetite.
Bitter orange is often used as a legal replacement to ephedrine in supplements but it does come with health risks. It increases heart rate and blood pressure, so this supplement will not suit you if you have a heart or blood pressure related medical condition.
In addition, Slim Vits contains Cassia Seed extract – a powerful laxative, Jobs Tears seeds a native Chinese plant believed to reduce cholesterol, and Mulberry Leaf Extract best known as the food for silkworms. However Mulberry leaf may also lower blood sugar levels and there is some evidence it may be useful as a treatment for diabetes.
The final ingredient is Amylum – another word for starch and possibly included to bulk up the weight loss capsules.
There are no directions provided about how to take Slim Vits. It looks as if you will be on your own with this supplement.
Overall, we have concerns about this ingredients profile. Bitter orange can be extremely dangerous in high quantities and cassia seed is a strong laxative that is known for causing diarrhoea. It seems likely that Slim Vits will cause some unpleasant side effects from the listed ingredients. In addition Chinese diet pills are notorious for including added ingredients, which are even more dangerous.
Slim Vits is manufactured and sold direct from China. There are thousands of supplement manufacturers in China and in many cases, these supply sellers based in countries such as the UK, USA and Europe.
Slim Vits is slightly different in that the company sell direct to customers worldwide.
The company’s address is:
Slimvits, Suite A601 – 17295, ecommerce Service Base, Gongyuannan Rd, Nanshan District, Shenzhen, 518070, China.
Despite the company’s location, international postage is assured and takes between 6 -12 days.
However, Slim Vits is also available via some third party sellers.
There are many rather strange claims made on the Slim Vits website. This supplement will give you a way to:
Save up to £50 a week on your groceries – FACT
Presumably because the appetite suppressing qualities cut down on the need to buy food!
It explains this point further:
Due to the big slap in your cravings face, with this amazing natural appetite suppressor SlimVits is taking the World by storm. On average you will save £200 per month on your food shopping for the price of a Slim Vits bottle £34.99
For the Price of a fast food meal for two, spending just £34.99 on SlimVits is this not worth a change to your health, body and mind.
The advertising explains the role of bitter orange extract:
Bitter orange contains is similar to epinephrine for weight loss but without the risks of taking ephedrine and totally 100% Legal, which act on the adrenergic receptor to constrict blood vessels and increase blood pressure and heart rate = a Youthful metabolism.
We cannot see how increasing blood pressure and heart rate equals a youthful metabolism. This is more likely to cause a heart attack than make you feel younger!
Even less convincing is a row of newspaper logos displayed on the front page of the product website. These include the Herald Sun, the Sun, the Star, Die Zeit and USA today. The initial impression is that Slim Vits has been mentioned in these publications but in small print, it just says, “Slim Vits Customers read these papers.”
Unsurprisingly there is no real information about this supplement.
Don’t take the risk in finding out. Slim Vits is a dangerous diet pill supplement with an inadequate ingredients profile and it probably contains additional ingredients too.
Reputable Chinese supplements are supposed to display a Blue hat label as an assurance of quality. Slim Vits does not display this logo so has obviously not been manufactured to basic safety standards.

Slim Vits may cause side effects and some customers have mentioned these.
Worst pills ever… ended up in the hospital after only taking 10 days.
The appetite suppression effect seems extreme too and it seems this supplement will keep you awake at night.
Second day of taking them felt a bit strange on the 1st day and couldn’t sleep at night. I can honestly say I wasn’t hungry at all … I had to force myself to eat an apple … I really couldn’t stomach trying anything else. Drink plenty of water with them because I was extremely thirsty.
It is 3AM and I have just been on the phone to NHS Direct because I have been having severe heart pains which is very scary and I am worried. I have not had any of these problems before taking these pills…

This is a typical positive comment.
Some customers feel that the supplement works for weight loss but have concerns about the side effects,
Have to admit that this is the most effective product I have ever used to curb my appetite, I can actually not eat for a whole day and don’t feel hungry…. however, after using it for 4 days, I cannot sleep at night and I got spots on my face and my heart beats really fast. Maybe it is not for my body type. So be caution when decide to buy it.
Many customers have mentioned side effects,
Be careful of these, it’s got something in that it doesn’t tell you about its a stimulant and made my heart race like strong caffeine ,and only when I got them it says not recommended for ex addicts ! They do not work and do not have enough information, don’t waste your money, I regret buying them!
