It seems new supplement companies spring up all the time – some with just one product and others, like Vida Divina, with a whole range of them. We thought we’d look into Vida Divina Atom, but first we had to get past everything that made it look like this company was more about multilevel marketing than about the products themselves.
And once we’d got past all the MLM information (starter kit prices begin at $120 and go all the way up to $1200 for ever-increasing amounts of their detox tea) we finally found some facts about Vida Divina Atom – and here they are.
Vida Divina Atom is much more of an energy booster and appetite suppressant than a fat-burner if the ingredient list is anything to go by.
We’re told each capsule contains over half the recommended daily dose of caffeine, meaning there’s the possibility of overdosing when taking the suggested dosage of 2 caps a day.
And we’re told all sorts of other exciting things about Atom … until we read just a little bit lower where it says Vida Divina makes no product or medical claims.
In general, there’s the digestion problems, diuresis, and restlessness brought on by the caffeine in Vida Divina Atom, plus increased heart rate, blood pressure, rapid breathing, tremors, and delirium. And there’s also the potential for skin, kidney, and liver damage.
If you’re a Vida Divina affiliate, 60 capsules will cost you $40. If you’re a customer of that Vida Divina affiliate, those same 60 capsules will cost you $60.
Vida Divina can’t quite make up its mind what Atom is. A fat burner? Energy booster? Weight loss supplement?
We can find enough energy-boosting caffeine in Vida Divina Atom for users to risk an overdose, and yes, appetite suppressants such as Glucomannan could justify calling Vida Divina Atom a weight loss supplement.
But as for the other ingredients in its proprietary blend, many seem to have more to do with blood sugar levels than burning fat.
So we’re not sure why anyone should buy Vida Divina Atom in the first place, and until we are, we’re going to reject it.

Vida Divina Atom seems to contain a mishmash of appetite suppressants and stimulants – most of which we’ve come across in our researches, but then again, there’s ingredients like Cha de Bugre, Carulluma Fimbriata, Banaba, and Guggul which we’ve never seen before.
We’ve also never seen anyone, anywhere, claiming you can lose 60 lbs or more in a month, but one of the sellers on Facebook does just that, crediting such a weight loss to a combination of diet and Vida Divina products – including Atom.
From the website, “SUGGESTED USE: For an Energy boost. Take one capsule 1 to 2 times daily 15 minutes prior to consuming food or as Directed by a health care professional.”
It doesn’t say anything about its supposed fat-burning or weightloss properties there.
On the basis that a weight loss rate of one or two pounds a week is considered safe, we’re not sure it’s possible to voluntarily and deliberately lose two pounds a day over an extended period like that, and survive.
It makes us think that the seller making this kind of claim knows very little or (more likely) absolutely nothing about weight loss and is only in it purely for the money. Much like the company itself, maybe?
The website tells us,
“May help to burn fat
May assist with weight loss”
“This Revolutionary Thermogenic Capsule Has Properties That Helps Suppress Your Appetite, While Providing Up To 8 Hours Of Natural Sustainable Energy.
Turn Your Body Into A Metabolism Boosting Fat Burning Machine!”
But then the whole effect is kind of spoiled when directly beneath that we read,
“*VIDA DIVINA® MAKES NO PRODUCT OR MEDICAL CLAIMS”
It depends on what you want it to do: if you want an energy boost but lack the energy to pour yourself another cup of coffee, then the caffeine in Vida Divina Atom will definitely raise those energy levels for a spell.
On the other hand, if you want to turn your body into that promised Metabolism Boosting Fat Burning Machine, from what we see of the ingredients that might not happen for you.
Then again, the Glucomannan, if there’s enough of it, could just be the appetite suppressant you’re looking for.
So as far as whether Vida Divina Atom works or not, all we can say is maybe, maybe not. And a lot depends on what you want to use if for.
Some of the following ingredients have different uses, so what we’re going to do here is just list the potential uses they’d have if you’re taking Atom.
We start with:
And in the proprietary blend, we’ve got:
And then we have these ingredients, which look more like they’re used in the manufacturing process.
Most of the ingredients in Vida Divina Atom can bring on some kind of side effect, but what we can’t tell you is what effects can be brought on by any kind of combination of these ingredients.
And since many of these ingredients are in a proprietary blend, we have no idea of the quantities involved.
So here are the ingredients in Vida Divina Atom, and their potential side effects:
Chromium: Can cause skin irritation, dizziness, impaired thinking and judgement, loss of coordination, and mood changes. High doses have been linked to other problems including blood disorders, and damage to the liver and kidneys.
Caffeine: Can cause digestion problems, nervousness, restlessness, raised heart rate, headaches, and sleep problems.
And in the proprietary blend, we’ve got:
Hoodia cactus concentrate: Can interfere with blood pressure and blood sugar levels, bring on increased bleeding, digestion problems, nervousness, and potential liver damage.
Glucomannan root (if they really want to call it that): Can cause digestion problems, interfere with blood sugar levels, and require a change in any medication schedule.
Green Tea leaf: Reduced the absorption of iron from food, and can cause digestion problems, sleep problems, headache, nervousness, confusion, dizziness, and convulsions.
Theobromine: Can bring on digestion problems, faster heartbeat, headaches, sleeplessness, skin reactions, and is a diuretic.
Guarana seed: A diuretic that can bring on digestion problems, restlessness, raised heartbeat and blood pressure, tremors, and delirium.
Cha de Bugre leaf powder: Can interfere with blood pressure, and can cause dry mouth, insomnia, and anxiety attacks.
Maca root: Can act like estrogen in the body.
Caralluma Fimbriata: Can cause basic digestion problems.
L-Theanine: Can lower blood pressure, reduce appetite and bring on headaches, dizziness, and difficulty in concentrating.
Banaba leaf: Not much is known about this extract in terms of long-term safety, but it is known to lower blood pressure.
Pomegranate fruit powder: Symptoms of sensitivity to pomegranate can include itching, swelling, runny nose, and breathing difficulties.
Guggul: Can bring on digestion problems, skin rash, itching, and hiccups.
Bovine gelatin: Can bring on digestion problems, and allergic reactions.
Rice powder: We haven’t found any side effects yet.
Vegetable manesium (sic): Why don’t these people learn to spell their ingredients? In large doses this can harm the skin and the liver.
Silicon dioxide: Because the particles can be so small, it’s possible for them to cross the blood-barrier. Other potential problems if taken over time can include kidney stones.
Here’s the caution and warning from the Vida Divina Atom website,
“CAUTION: Do not exceed recommended dose. This product is not intended for pregnant or nursing mothers, children under the age of 18, or individuals taking prescription drugs.

If you have questions about the advisability of taking this product, consult your physicians prior to use.

“WARNING: This product contains 217 mg of caffeine per serving (equivalent to 2 cup of coffee).”
There are quite a few independent reviews for other Vida Divina products on Amazon, but every time we check the sales page for Vida Divina Atom, we’re always invited to be the first to review this item.
Elsewhere on the web, it’s pretty much the same story – except for that single review from a “verified reviewer” on a sneaky sales page which seems to know us by name, even though we’ve never visited it before.
We don’t like that. We don’t like it at all.
And in line with that kind of sneakiness we’re looking at someone who claims to have lost 20 lbs. in six weeks. With “little to no exercise”. We can’t help wondering how healthy they were at the end of week six. If, of course, they’ve been telling the truth.
It sure does. If you’re a customer of one of Vida Divina’s affiliates, you have a, “one hundred percent (100%) ninety-day (90) money back guarantee”.
Then again, if you’re one of Vida Divina’s affiliates, you can get a refund on products which remain in resalable condition, but, “The refund shall be ninety percent (90%) of the purchase price”.
Shipping and handling charges will not be refunded.
For such a young MLM company, there’s an awful lot of Vida Divina product already on shopping portals like Amazon and eBay. Whether that’s canny marketing or disillusioned distributors, we can’t say. But one Amazon seller has had the grand total of 55% positive reviews in the past 12 months.
Then of course, you could always make your purchases through a Vida Divina affiliate, but since there’s a lot of emphasis on the money side of the business, don’t be surprised if you’re pestered to join a downline. And pestered. And pestered.
