SlimShotz is a berry flavoured weight loss drink that you make by adding the powder to a glass of water, and according to the advertising, it will seriously reduce your appetite. Use as recommended and the company will give you a refund if you don’t feel the difference in 7 days. This sounds great, so is SlimShotz worth a try? We find out.
Primal Cure is a British company based in Redditch. The company’s mission is to support health, wellbeing, and longevity. They also run a program called Double the Goodness, where they provide nutritional support to children in the developing world.
SlimShotz is a glucomannan supplement that comes in the form of a berry flavoured drink to be taken 3 times a day, 30 minutes before each meal. It is conveniently packaged in stick sachets that you just add to water and mix, and each box contains 21 sticks so is equal to one week’s supply. It is expensive at £14.99 per week (£59.96 per month), but if you are dissatisfied or find it does not work, you can return it to Primal Cure for a refund.
SlimShotz comes from British company Primal Cure and is made in the UK.
Potential side effects may include abdominal cramps, bloating, nausea, and increased bowel movements.
It is important to speak with your doctor before using if you have an underlying medical condition or are taking prescription medication, in case of interactions or adverse effects.
SlimShotz is expensive if you are looking to use long term. Many people take glucomannan supplements over a period of months, so do this with this supplement and it is going to be pricy.
Buy from the official Primal Cure website and each packet of 21 sachet, and one stick serving costs £14.99. This is sufficient for one week’s use if you take 3 times a day as recommended. Take for a month it adds up to £59.96.
You can obtain a reduction by signing up to the “Subscribe and Save” option on the website. This is an auto-ship agreement that sends you fresh supplies, and bills your bank or credit card automatically. The price for this option is £11.99 per box, so it does save money. However, these types of agreement can be tricky to cancel and although this is covered in the terms and conditions, we read through these rules and it all seems very confusing. There does not seem to be a simple “cancel the agreement” option.
Delivery within the UK is a further £2.99 (free on orders over £35.00). International shipping is available, but you will need to contact the company first.
You can also buy SlimShotz via Amazon for the same price. This works out a little cheaper if you have Amazon Prime, so can benefit from free shipping.
SlimShotz is a weight loss supplement that you take as a drink by mixing powder to water. Each serving is conveniently packaged in a stick sachet, so you don’t have the hassle of a large tub or messing about with powder. There is only one flavour – which is just named as “berry”, but looking at the ingredients list, is based on cranberry.
SlimShotz contains glucomannan as the principle ingredient. This is a natural fibre derived from a plant called the Konjac, and when added to water or ingested, it swells up to many times its original weight, forming into a gel-like substance. This is effective for weight loss because it causes the user to feel fuller for much longer on less food.
Glucomannan is one of the very few natural ingredients approved by the European Food Standards Agency (EFSA) as being effective for weight loss.
SlimShotz also contains Inulin, a starchy substance present in fruit and vegetables, and there is also added zinc and vitamin C. Check out the ingredients tab for more information.

Primal Cure looks to be a reputable company with a wide product range of supplements, cosmetics, minerals, and vitamins aimed at improving general health and wellbeing, as well as weight loss. SlimShotz was launched onto the market in August 2018.
The company was founded by Steve Bennett, described as an entrepreneur, author, adventurer, and health guru. There is a Primal Cure Live TV channel you can watch on the website or via Sky Channel 670, which offers health advice and the company also takes part in charitable donations with their own Double The Goodness programme.

“Every time you pour yourself a shot, we provide a nutritional supplement to a malnourished child”
The key features are as follows:
There are also 12 other health benefits. SlimShotz contributes to the normal function of:
This last point is further explained:
“In trials, is has also been clinically proven that more than 4g of Glucomannan per day contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. As your 3 daily servings of SlimShotz combine to provide 5.1g, you can take advantage of this wonderful health benefit!”
Yes, we think it will work. Glucomannan is a proven ingredient that can help weight loss, because it reduces hunger pangs and improve digestive issues. The fibre is good for the probiotics in your stomach – it has a prebiotic function which helps nourish your good bacteria so may improve digestive issues, and because glucomannan is a mild bulk laxative, it can remedy constipation and make you more regular. In addition, glucomannan can help reduce blood sugar levels and cholesterol levels.
Most scientific research has looked at a daily serving size of 3000mg-4000mg, the figure that the EFSA has considered optimal. At 5.1mg per day, in SlimShotz, this seems a little high compared to most supplements and is probably unnecessary.
Whether SlimShotz will work for you will probably come down to whether you enjoy drinking the shots, and if you can persevere with this supplement. In our opinion, SlimShotz should be an effective but expensive way of taking a glucomannan supplement.

SlimShotz may cause side effects including:
It is important to ensure that you add plenty of water to the powder to ensure that it reaches the stomach where it can expand safely, or it could cause blockages.
There are customer reviews for SlimShotz. We took a look at the official Primal Cure website and on Amazon where there are a handful of reviews.
Comments are generally favourable on the Primal Cure website and include:
Gets rid of the hunger pangs for few hours when fasting.
A little expensive but the product is working I am losing weight
These do reduce appetite. I’m just not very good at remembering to use them long enough before meals
The Amazon comments are more mixed. There are favourable comments:
Exceptional product. It’s has helped shaped my healthy diet and not only shifted a few pounds so I’m back in my pre-summer jeans, but feel great too
Not bad. Does take the edge off.
Some customers noticed no difference:
Followed extremely strictly and i can honestly say for me it did nothing!!
One customer who suffers from IBS, experienced side effects:
Ordered these after watching the primal channel and thought I’d give them a go……….. If you suffer from IBS like myself… Be careful… After 2 days of taking them I suffered from severe cramps and nausea for about 5 days so I stopped taking… Couple of months later I thought I’d try again just to see……… And again after 2 days was in agony with sickness… Needless to say I binned them………. If you’re looking for a quick weight loss fix… Don’t…
There is a money-back guarantee and it looks very good. According to the advertising, “Feel the difference in 7 days or get your money back”.
Here’s what the company says about it,
“If you try Primal Cure supplements and don’t feel the difference, they’ve arrived faulty (oops) or you’ve just changed your mind, just let us know within 30 days of receiving the goods, and return the original packaging with your order number and receipt of goods as proof of purchase.

You can buy SlimShotz via the Primal Cure website or TV channel. It is also on sale via Amazon.
We are impressed by SlimShotz. This looks to be a good quality supplement that will probably work as described, and if you can face drinking it three times a day 30 minutes before meals, it probably will help you lose weight. Glucomannan is an effective appetite suppressant with very few side effects, so this looks to be a safe and effective method of weight loss.
However, we do have some concerns. There seems to be no real reason why this drink should contain such a high serving size of glucomannan when it is unlikely to make any real difference to the final outcome. In addition, it is expensive if you take it long term, as is recommended by most clinical research. We were also disappointed by the Terms and Conditions which do not make cancelling the Subscribe and Save option very easy.
We like Primal Cure and are impressed by this British company, the TV channel, and the charitable donations, but we are less keen on this supplement. We can see most people trying it for a week and just giving up on it and although it may work for some users, we think it is a bit too fussy and overpriced to recommend to the Watchdog readers.
