Below, we take an in-depth look at SlimBiotine, to see whether this weight loss/probiotic supplement has the ingredient balance to pull off both of these effects at the same time.
SlimBiotine is a probiotic and weight loss supplement that is sold on a dedicated product website run by Fisico Incorporated. Visitors to the SlimBiotine website are greeted with an odd (and excruciatingly long) presentation warning about the dangers of artificial sweeteners; actually finding the part of the website that sells SlimBiotine is bizarrely difficult! Upon reaching the real sales page, customers are told that this product sources its probiotic bacteria from soil and plant matter, an unusual choice that apparently means that the bottle does not need to be refrigerated (as normal). SlimBiotine is said to induce weight loss, improve the digestive system, lower blood sugar levels, and raise sensitivity to insulin.
Probiotic supplements rarely cause side effects, and those that are encountered are normally quite mild. Some customers may experience gas, bloating, or diarrhoea in the first few days after trying a probiotic supplement, although these symptoms should subside after a few days. It should be noted that we essentially consider the probiotic effects of this product to be minimal at best; if this is true, customers should realistically expect no side effects whatsoever.
SlimBiotine is incredibly expensive when compared to other probiotic products out there. A 60-capsule bottle costs $49.95 plus $5.95 in shipping, a huge amount when you consider that this is supposedly a one-month supply! Bulk options are available, but these realistically just cause customers to sink more money into this pricey product. For those interested, purchasing three bottles from the official SlimBiotine website costs $129.95 and purchasing six bottle costs $239.95 (both with free shipping). SlimBiotine is only available to buy on the official SlimBiotine website.
SlimBiotine is a probiotic and weight loss supplement that uses a pure source of healthy bacteria “cultured right from the earth”. This unusual probiotic source is said to be more effective due to the fact that it is synthesised in an entirely natural way, helping it to survive the harsh conditions of the stomach and reach the gut. SlimBiotine is a relatively expensive probiotic/weight less option, and is currently only available to purchase online.
This product is produced and sold by Fisico Inc., a manufacturer that claims to be based in the USA (although certain aspects of their official website indicate that they may be based elsewhere). The presentation of the official SlimBiotine website and other mysterious details about the company give the initial impression that this promotion is a scam, although closer inspection suggests that the company is legitimate and broadly trustworthy. Fisico enjoys a high rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and seems to have a good reputation for fulfilling returns and dealing with complaints. The company can be contacted here.
The direction for use are as follows: For best results, take one (1) capsule 20-30 minutes before your two (2) biggest meals of the day. Do not exceed two (2) capsules per day.
SlimBiotine claims to act as both a probiotic and weight loss aid. The formula uses an unusual probiotic mix that the manufacturers claim is sourced from soil. The process of taking probiotic bacteria from earth and plant matter is said to make the mix more “natural”, and thus more likely to survive the harsh conditions of the stomach and reach the gut. One the product reaches the gut, the probiotic bacteria found in SlimBiotine “immediately get to work on fighting the bad bugs that mess up your metabolism and cause your body to hoard fat”.
The ingredients list also contains 2 extra additions (cinnulin and GS4). These weight loss ingredients are said to significantly lower blood sugar and cholesterol, decrease body fat, and increase insulin sensitivity.
SlimBiotine seems to pride itself on the fact that it sources its probiotic bacteria from soil and plant matter, although the evidence taken from the actual ingredients list suggests that this serves only to make the product weaker than it needs to be. No less than three of the strains found in the mix are (predictably) soil-based bacteria that have never been associated with gut health or immune system-boosting benefits. In addition, the otherwise-detailed ingredients label fails to disclose basic information on the numbers of CFUs found in the product, which makes it impossible to estimate just how powerful or concentrated the probiotic mix is. Given this absence of information and the seemingly-lazy way the product has otherwise been put together, we would guess that the probiotic benefits of using this product are minimal to non-existent.
Although the product contains ingredients that should help to lower blood sugar levels and raise insulin sensitivity, the only ingredient it relies on to help customers lose weight is plain old cinnamon. Although cinnamon has occasionally been linked with possible weight loss benefits, we would strongly suggest that a 250mg sprinkling of cinnamon is no less likely to induce dramatic weight loss than the cinnamon buns you can consume at home!

The ingredients used in SlimBiotine are listed below. The ingredient quantities listed below are correct for 1 capsule. Although ingredient quantities are listed, readers should note that the numbers of CFUs are not. CFUs (which stands for Culture Forming Units) are the measure of how effective the probiotic supplement is, and spans approximately 1 billion CFUs to 50 billion CFUs, depending on the quality of the product. When the number of CFUs is not listed, this may act as an indication that the product contains insignificant or unknown quantities of bacteria.

We were not able to find many comments discussing SlimBiotine online (the four listed below represent pretty much all of them). Those that we could find were generally mixed; a couple of customers have expressed great satisfaction with the product and its effects, whereas the other two claim to have experienced no meaningful benefits.
I have used it for 30 days and no change.
This is just another dietetic with a taste of cinnamon doesn’t work, after you buy it you don’t here from them until it is time to get more.
I have been taking the product for nearly 6 months, and I am very happy with the fact that my life long constipation is no longer a problem.
I have been taking slimbiotine for two weeks and have had great success. I have lost weight and feel much better.
According to the official SlimBiotine website, all purchases of SlimBiotine are protected by a 90-day money-back guarantee (less shipping and handling). Customers are told they may contact the company to organise a refund, and the evidence we’ve seen on the Better Business Bureau (BBB) suggests that the company typically complies in good faith with customer requests.
SlimBiotine appears to only be available to buy on the special product website dedicated to it. Different deals are available depending on the quantity customers are looking to buy. One 60-capsule bottle (a 30-day supply) costs $49.95 plus $5.95 in shipping on the official website. Bulk-buy options are generally more cost-effective – 3 bottles of SlimBiotine costs $129.95 and 6 bottles cost $239.95 (with both coming with free shipping).
SlimBiotine may look interesting at first glance, but its various problems vastly outweigh its benefits.
The manufacturers proudly claim that their probiotic bacteria is sourced from all-natural plant and soil sources. For those unfamiliar with probiotics, this is actually a very strange claim, and this is reflected in the strains that we can actually see in the ingredients list. Although many of the usual suspects are in there (like L. Acidophilus), this product also contains a few bacteria that are not-known for their probiotic effects in the slightest. A cynical reviewer would suggest that the company can claim that the bacteria are “preserved in their natural state”, simply because they have been chucked into the mix with little regard for separating out what works from what doesn’t (perhaps this is also why they are unable to provide basic CFU-quantity information on the packaging). It seems lazy and it certainly doesn’t make for a good product.
The weight-loss ingredients are no more impressive, leading us to conclude that this product likely does little to nothing. When you consider how expensive SlimBiotine is (around $55 in total for a month’s supply), it seems like a scandal.
As manufacturers go, Fisico Inc is otherwise very responsible. The company offers an excellent 90-day money-back guarantee on all purchases of SlimBiotine, and we have seen decent evidence that the company issues refunds with little complaint. However, this fact is not enough to save SlimBiotine from a scathing review – it simply just isn’t a good product to begin with!
Overall, we do not recommend SlimBiotine to our readers.
