We will have a close look at V24 Weight Loss Gummies, to see whether they really work and to see if they are safe to take.
V24 Weight Loss Gummies is a supplement that claims to make weight loss fun. They use Glucomannan as the primary ingredient to suppress the appetite. However, a lot of gummies need to be consumed each day to get the required amount of Glucomannan to have the desired effect, which means one bag of 60 gummies only lasts 5 days!
The company claim that the product is sugar-free, however they do contain artificial sweeteners which have been found to be potentially bad for your health and can cause side effects, especially with long-term use.
The product is manufactured by a company called Team V24, who also make protein shots. The company appears to be based in the UK, however we have been unable to find any more information out about them and there is no address on their website or seemingly anywhere else. We did ask them a question via Facebook Messenger as to where they are based but we received no reply.
Glucomannan works by absorbing water in the stomach, making it really important to drink plenty of water when taking the product otherwise you could experience constipation and stomach cramps. As glucomannan is a fibre, it is likely that its use will increase the rate of bowel movements. Diarrhoea may also occur. Glucomannan also affects blood sugar levels. Diabetics should consult their doctor before taking any glucomannan-based product.
Artificial sweeteners (Maltitol and Sorbitol) can cause nausea, gas, diarrhea, stomach cramps, or anal irritation. People with diabetes should remember that they are carbohydrates and therefore have a glycemic index. While not as high as sugar, they still have an effect on blood glucose.
V24 Weight Loss Gummies are incredibly expensive. They cost £22.95 from Amazon UK, or £40.00 for 120 gummies on the official website.
If taken at the maximum dose, one 60 gummy pack will only last 5 days.
Glucomannan is the only ingredient in this product that will reduce appetite when used in sufficient quantities, and so could theoretically aid weight loss with continued use over a prolonged period of time. However, to get the required dose of Glucomannan, 12 gummies need to be taken daily which is a lot. It is likely that consumers will find it had to remember to take them 3 times a day before meals and it also makes them very expensive. The company also do not offer a money-back guarantee which is disappointing.
Maltitol and Sorbitol are sugar alcohols which can cause side effects, and the product also contains E numbers and flavourings, all of which are not good for our health.
Added to this, one bag of 60 gummies will only last you for 5 days if you are taking the recommended dose, so we do not recommend V24 Weight Loss Gummies to our readers.
Its ingredients are scientifically proven to aid weight loss and you are covered by a full 60-day money-back guarantee from a trusted company, making Phentatrim a very popular choice in the diet world.
Phentatrim is the best thing to hit the supplement market in a long time, with thousands of customers already seeing the benefits. That’s why it's our editor's top pick.

The main ingredient in these gummies is Glucomannan, a water-soluble dietary fiber that is extracted from the roots of the elephant yam or konjac. It is supposed to provide a number of health benefits, mainly due to its amazing ability to absorb water. It is due to this that many experts are of the view that glucomannan helps support weight loss.
Many studies show that supplementing with glucomannan helps control weight gain, but it is important to bear in mind that these benefits show up when you pay attention to your diet and exercise regularly. The combination of good diet, exercise, and glucomannan not only helps lose weight but keeps it off as well. By including glucomannan in your diet, you will be promoting a feeling of fullness. The fiber swells up in your gut and makes you feel fuller, which in turn keeps you from consuming additional calories.
When taken alone, it may not be that effective. The Journal of the American College of Nutrition published a study in 2012 and stated that it did not lead to a statistically significant weight loss.
To have the desired effect of weight loss, a consumer must remember to take these gummies 3 separate times a day and eat 4 gummies which is a lot, and even then they might not work. Some reviewers have mentioned that they are hard to chew so do you really want to be taking 4 gummies, 3 times a day? You will also be consuming calories from this supplement from the artificial sweeteners which are not ideal if you are trying to lose weight.
It is claimed that V24 Weight Loss Gummies can help you to achieve your weight loss goal. They also suppress the appetite and keep you feeling fuller for longer.
If the full dose is taken every day then these gummies could potentially help with some weight loss alongside a healthy diet and exercise regime. However, they would need to be taken over a longer period for them to have any effect, and at £22.95 for a 5-day supply, the majority of people are not likely to keep taking them long enough for this to happen.
It is not clear the amounts of each ingredient as it is not listed anywhere. However it is suggested that taking 12 gummies each day provides 3g of Glucomannan, so it appears that one gummy provides 0.25mg of Glucomannan.
Glucomannan can cause side effects if enough water is not consumed alongside it. These include constipation and stomach cramps.
Artificial sweeteners (Maltitol and Sorbitol) can cause:
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women, or those under the age of 18.
Consumers who are taking prescribed medications should check with their doctor before taking this or any dietary supplement.
Excess consumption of polyalcohols may have a laxative effect. Do not exceed recommended dosage. Colourant E-129 may have an adverse effect on activity and attention in children.
There are some reviews on Amazon UK, the majority of which are 5 stars and they do appear to be genuine from looking at the product on the website Fakespot.
However, many customers mention the product satisfying their sweet craving rather than reporting any weight loss after taking them, which seems like an expensive way to satisfy your cravings.
An example includes:
They work well and taste nice along with a good clean diet, these will help with your sugar cravings for sure.
No, they do not appear to offer a money-back guarantee.
You can buy it from Amazon UK for £22.95 for 60 gummies, or from the official website for either the same price, or £40.00 for 120 gummies.
