Valentus Slim Roast is a range of coffee inspired weight loss and health drinks sold via multi-level marketing. Some of the coffees look OK, but this product range seems overpriced and is a hassle to buy. The flagship supplement is Slim Roast Italian, which is available on Amazon but is extremely expensive and not very well reviewed by customers. We can’t see much point to buying Valentus Slim Roast when there are so many better supplements on the market – and some far better tasting coffee as well!
We take a look to see if these coffees can actually do more than just pick you up in the mornings.
Valentus Slim Roast is a brand of coffee intended to boost health and weight loss. Out of the 14 products, Slim Roast Italian looks the best bet. It includes green tea plus Garcinia cambogia and Phaseolamine (based on white kidney bean extract). In our opinion, this one may have some benefit for weight loss.
The coffees are expensive though. You can pay as much as $64 for a pack of 24 servings of Slim Roast Italian. The other products in the range are similarly priced. With no money-back guarantee and very little product information, Slim Roast seems overpriced, especially as you are supposed to make it part of your daily routine and drink it on a permanent basis.
Valentus Slim Roast may cause side effects depending upon your own physical make up and the supplement you choose.
The most common side effects are likely to be related to caffeine and other stimulants and may include jitteriness, insomnia, increased heart rate and blood pressure, mood swings, tremors, and headaches.
DMHA, which is present in Slim Roast Optimum, can cause heart palpitations, elevated blood pressure, and nausea.
Phaseolamine and Garcinia cambogia, which are in several of the formulas, can cause mild side effects such as abdominal pain and changes to bowel movements.
There are 14 products in the Valentus range, so there are numerous ingredients that may not suit everyone. Always check through the ingredients list before you buy and speak to your doctor before using if you have an underlying medical condition or are taking prescription medication.
Valentus Slim Roast is expensive and is not straightforward to buy. Because it is sold via multi-level marketing you have to buy through a distributor, and as ever you have a range of options depending upon whether you want to buy it once, set up a regular order, or become a distributor yourself. Amazingly, prices are not provided on any of the distributor websites, so who knows!
You can buy Valentus Slim Roast Italian via Amazon though, where it costs a whopping $64.00 for just 24 stick sachets. The other Valentus products in the range are not currently available on Amazon.
Valentus Slim Roast offers you a way to enjoy a “new kind of health, vitality and endurance” through a range of beverages. The word Valentus means Prevail.
There is a choice available. Slim Roast Optimum is marketed as an appetite suppressant and as a way to feel good. This contains ingredients that help increase nitric oxide in the body to boost exercise and blood flow.
Slim Roast Italian contains added weight loss ingredients such as Garcinia cambogia, green tea, ginseng, and more. There is Valentus Trim with added raspberry ketones. There are also coffee blends to boost immunity or energy levels.
Most products are packaged in sticks that you just break open and add to boiling water like ordinary coffee. However, Slim Roast Optimum comes in a tub containing 10 servings. There are 14 products in total to choose from.
Break open the stick sachet, or add a scoop of powder to a cup and pour on boiling water. Most supplements in the range are designed to be drunk one or two times a day. Avoid using too close to bedtime because of the caffeine content.
Valentus is a multi-level marketing company, so if you like the products you can sign up and start selling them yourself.
The company offer a range of business packages, but be warned, it is expensive. Alternatively, you just buy from a home distributor. Valentus supply their distributors with very professional-looking websites, and these are easy to find. In fact, most searches for Valentus lead you to a distributor site.
Valentus tried to expand into the UK market – it was registered and launched in 2015 but was dissolved in April 2017. Trading standards became involved when representatives continued to sell Valentus in the UK after the company was dissolved, as it was classed as trading illegally. However, Valentus may be available to European customers.
There is not much difference between the claims of the various weight loss coffees. Despite the different ingredient profiles, they all seem to do much the same thing.

- Nourish your body to support weight loss

formulated with natural appetite suppressants and ingredients to help detoxify your body, Prevail Trim™ is a great addition to any weight management program.
None of the coffees are the miracle products they claim to be, but if you enjoy the flavours and use in combination with diet and exercise you may lose some weight.
Italian Dark Roast seems to be the most popular. This may give your metabolism a boost – with the combination of the natural caffeine in coffee added to green tea extract, which is a proven combination for fat burning. There is also ginseng, so it may improve mood, and a white kidney bean extract called Phaseolamine, which may help prevent hunger pangs. Garcinia cambogia may have a mild carb-blocking effect too.
Overall, Italian Dark Roast may provide general support to weight loss. The other products look fairly similar but, in our opinion, this looks like the best of the bunch.
With a combination of proven ingredients, superb customer service and a 60-day money-back guarantee, Phentaslim is making big waves in the diet world.

Serving size for most of the Valentus range is one stick of powder. Slim Roast Optimum is equal to one 3.5g scoop. You add the powders to boiling water in the same way as ordinary instant coffee. Individual ingredient quantities are not provided.
Many of the coffees contain green tea extract. Green tea is high in a group of antioxidants called catechins. Studies have suggested that catechins increase thermogenesis (fat burning) in the body, whilst caffeine increases energy expenditure by boosting the metabolism slightly for few hours. When green tea and caffeine are taken together, as here, it can be an effective pairing for weight loss.
Italian Dark Roast contains ingredients that may help block carbs and increase feelings of fullness. These include Phaseolamine, a fibre derived from white kidney bean extract and is a natural appetite suppressant. It can also block carb absorption because it helps suppress digestive enzymes. Garcinia cambogia is a natural carb blocker too, and although research has been mixed, it may add to the weight loss effect.
Prevail Trim contains raspberry ketones and green coffee bean extract. Green coffee bean contains chlorogenic acid, which appears to inhibit glucose from entering the bloodstream.
Slim Roast Optimum contains beta phenylethlamine, known as PEA, which can have a temporary mood-boosting effect. There is also a psychoactive central nervous system stimulant called 2-amino-6-methylheptane. This is better known as DMHA (dimethylhexylamine). DMHA is often abused by bodybuilders – the FDA have major concerns about its use in supplements.
Valentus Slim Roast may cause side effects depending upon your own physical makeup and the supplement you choose.
The most common side effects are likely to be related to caffeine and other stimulants and may include:
DMHA can cause:
Phaseolamine and Garcinia cambogia can cause mild side effects such as:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. It is important to remember that these coffees are dietary supplements, so read through the ingredients list before you buy. Discontinue use in the case of side effects and seek medical advice if necessary.
We found over a hundred reviews for Slim Roast Dark Italian Coffee on Amazon. Customer opinion was split evenly between people who loved this coffee and those that didn’t.
Positive reviews included:
I started drinking this coffee 9 days ago, and I’ve already lost 5 lbs. It gives me energy, and it curbs my appetite, less craving for sweets. I also feel relaxed throughout the evening, I feel it actually helped control my anxiety too. Overall I’m very happy with this product.
I’ve been using for just over a month and it has helped curb my appetite. I’ve lost 12 lbs so far. Good stuff.
Negative reviews include:
Made me feel like I was on drugs! I had cotton mouth after drinking. So not much different then any other appetite suppressant
Made me jittery and made me agitated
After using all 24 packets of the Slim Roast Italian Coffee I found it did nothing for me that it advertised. I couldn’t tell the difference in my mood, appetite or brain focus with this product than a regular cup of coffee. And it didn’t help with any weight loss either.
There does not seem to be a money-back guarantee.
You can buy the complete range of Valentus Slim Roast products via a distributor website. Some Valentus Slim Roast supplements are also on sale via Amazon USA. Valentus Slim Roast is no longer legally available to customers in the UK.
We like the idea. Combining a coffee with weight loss ingredients seems like an easy way to take a supplement, but we do have major concerns about some of this product range.
First up, some of the ingredients seem extremely powerful, so side effects are likely. In addition, the product information is inadequate – you will not really know what you are drinking. For example, DMHA is a stimulant that the FDA considers dangerous, yet is present in Slim Roast Optimum. There is very little product information and nothing to warn customers. An additional danger with this type of supplement is you may forget it is actually a supplement and start drinking it as a normal coffee.
That said, thinking this is a normal coffee seems unlikely at a whopping $64 for just 24 sachets. You can probably improve on this price by going through a distributor, but many customers will find doing this a hassle.
Finally, Valentus Slim Roast does not come with a money-back guarantee, so if you do buy this and find you don’t like the flavour of the effects, you cannot claim a refund.
There are definitely better, cheaper, and safer products on the market. We do not recommend Valentus Slim Roast.
