SlimJOY Capsules is designed to promote weight loss and lower the absorption of fats and carbs. The product also contains a branded ingredient called ID-alG, a seaweed extract believed to affect digestive enzymes and reduce appetite. We investigate whether SlimJOY Capsules actually works!
In this review, we are going to have a closer look at the SlimJOY Capsules, and see if it is really effective in producing the results it claims.
The manufacturers claim that there are 8 ingredients in this supplement, however, 2 of those are just fillers so we are not sure why they are saying they are exclusive ingredients. They claim that 1 capsule taken before a meal will block 54% sugars and 58% of fat from a meal, which should lead to a decrease in appetite, although it is unclear where they get these figures from. They also say they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
The individual or even the total ingredient quantities are not listed so it is hard to tell how effective they will be, if at all.
Potential side effects may include some gastrointestinal symptoms such as bloating, gas, and stomach cramps, as well as increased urination, reduced blood sugar levels, a decrease in blood pressure, and nausea.
SlimJOY Capsules is a supplement that is intended to block some of the sugar and fat that you eat from being absorbed by your body, whilst also stimulating your thyroid with iodine.
One of the main ingredients of SlimJOY Capsules is Cinnamon Bark Extract, which is thought to help regulate blood sugar levels by preventing fluctuations in blood sugar levels.
By preventing blood sugar spikes, cinnamon bark is supposed to improve energy. For instance:
Cinnamon can inhibit numerous digestive enzymes, such as alpha-glucosidase (Source), sucrase (Source), and potentially pancreatic amylase (although the only results were confounded with acarbose)(Source). Via inhibition of these enzymes, cinnamon can decrease the influx of glucose into the systemic circulation and avoid overly significant insulin spikes.
However, Cinnamon Bark extract can lead to hypoglycemia and other issues. As well as that, this ingredient has only been found to work when taken in larger doses up to 6g a day, and we have no information about how much of it is included in each serving of this supplement, so it would be wise to avoid it.
The product also contains a branded ingredient called ID-alG, a seaweed extract believed to affect digestive enzymes and reduce appetite, but this is lacking in evidence to support its use as a weight loss aid. It also contains red vine leaf extract (or Vitis vinifera L folium), and a few vitamins and minerals.
If you struggle with reducing your sugar or fat intake and want to lose weight, then this product might appeal to you. It could potentially offer some support if taken occasionally, for example before a large, heavy meal, but we would not advise someone to take it all the time. It could lull you into a false sense of security and actually encourage you to eat more, expecting this supplement to take it all away. Although ID-alG may have a slight carb and fat blocking effect, it will not block everything and so you may actually find you start putting on weight rather than losing it, with this supplement. That is even if there is enough of this ingredient in the product to have any effect at all, which we do not know.
SlimJOY Capsules are sold by a company called Sensilab who appear to be based in Luxemburg, although returns are sent to Slovenia, and they only deliver to the UK – which is all rather confusing and not very reassuring!
They make lots of other weight loss supplements in both capsule and drink forms, as well as Booty Gels for weight loss and to reduce cellulite. They say their products contain scientifically validated natural substances of the highest quality, designed to nurture our bodies and spirits.
Sensilab can be contacted at Sensilab d.o.o, Verovškova 55a, 1000 Ljubljana, member of Sensilab S.A. Luxembourg – or by e-mail: [email protected]
SlimJOY Capsules claims to block 58% of fat and 54% of sugar from everything you eat by stopping them from being absorbed by the body, as well as also stimulate your thyroid with iodine. They say that sweets and hamburgers will no longer stick to your hips, buttocks and belly!
They then say that by reducing overall sugar and fat absorption you will have steadier blood sugar levels, so you will notice a decrease in appetite.
We think it is unlikely that SlimJOY Capsules will work exactly as described. It is possible that it could help to block some sugar and fat, however there is a lack of any real proof currently to support its use for weight loss, and most of their claims have been based on animal experimentation rather than solid clinical evidence.
Also, the ingredient quantities are likely to be low as they are not disclosed. Cinnamon in particular needs to be in doses as high as 6g to have the required benefits of regulating blood sugar, which it isn’t here.
Added to that, even if this supplement does work, it doesn’t mean it will work for everyone. Unless you already struggle with over-eating fatty foods, you are unlikely to notice much difference. This supplement will not work as a fat burner or help you lose weight.

The ingredients of SlimJOY Capsules are listed below. There are no quantities provided for each of the ingredients, so it is impossible to say how effective they will be.
Although cinnamon bark is usually considered safe, some people may develop some gastrointestinal problems such as:
It can also lead to hypoglycemia and other issues.

We have not been able to find any reviews for SlimJOY Capsules, independent or otherwise, despite the fact is for sale on Amazon.
The company do claim to offer a money-back guarantee, however the terms and conditions state that although a money-back guarantee is only offered for claims within 30 days of purchase, you must ‘follow the course’ before claiming that you are not satisfied. So they seem to be saying that you must take a whole bottle, which will last 30 days and then request your money back, even though you will then be out time to try and get the money-back guarantee!
Added to this, they also say that they have to agree to it in writing after you have submitted a reason for them to investigate. So, unfortunately, we think it is rather unlikely that the money-back guarantee will be fulfilled.
SlimJOY Capsules can be purchased from the official website as well as Amazon UK.
SlimJOY Capsules contains a number of ingredients that are unlikely to help much with weight loss, as there is not enough clinical evidence to back up their use as weight loss aids.
Added none of the ingredient quantities are given at all, which we do not like as we cannot tell the likelihood that any of them will work to have the desired effects. It makes it impossible to say whether this supplement will work and help a consumer lose weight. However, it is likely that the ingredients are in low doses because otherwise, the brand would be likely to share them.
Added to this, a consumer will only take 2 doses a day of this supplement so it not taken with every meal, which is not ideal as any effects won’t be continuous.
The company say that they offer a 100% guarantee if you are not satisfied with the product. However, the terms and conditions state that although a money-back guarantee is only offered within 30 days of purchase, you must ‘follow the course’ before claiming that you are not satisfied. So, are they saying that you must take a whole bottle, which will last 30 days even though you will then be out time to try and get the money-back guarantee?
Added to this, they also say that they have to agree to it in writing after you have submitted a reason for them to investigate! This all concerns us rather a lot.
“Ordered Products may be returned by the Buyer in respect of defective/unsatisfactory product or packaging and the order bill only after Sensilab agrees in writing. The Buyer is obligated to use the products as per the instructions provided and strictly follow the course before claiming dissatisfaction with the said products.”
“..the Buyer shall submit a reason of the alleged defective products to Sensilab for investigation.”
Due to all of these reasons, we simply do not recommend SlimJOY Capsules to our readers.
