Does VitaSmart Twiggy work though? Will it help to fill you up and stop you overeating or reaching for that biscuit tin, or is another in a long list of products that just does not work? We look at it in more detail in this review.
VitaSmart Twiggy is an appetite suppressant drink, manufactured and sold by VitaSmart. It comes in powder form, which is then mixed with water to be drank between one or three times a day, depending on your weight loss needs. It claims to help consumers lose weight, reduce cholesterol and sugar in their blood, and will support all diet plans, including the Keto and Atkins diet.
There have been no reported side effects for this supplement. However, there are risks associated with glucomannan, the main ingredient. This includes choking and intestinal/esophageal blockages if not taken with the correct amount of water. It can also cause bloating, wind, and diarrhea. If you suffer from diabetes, it is important to seek medical advice before taking this as it can lower blood sugar levels.
VitaSmart Twiggy costs £19.90 on Amazon. This appears to be the only place outside of the Czech Republic where it can be purchased. From the official website, VitaSmart Twiggy costs 239 K? (£8.23).
Ok, so it contains two ingredients that we know will work for weight loss. There’s no doubting just how effective glucomannan can be for making consumers feeling full for longer. However, this is an incredibly high dosage, and in the past, a warning has been released by Health Canada, warning against it being taken without a minimum of 250ml of water, as it could lead to blockage of the throat, esophagus, or intestine, or choking. It also states it should not be taken immediately before going to bed. Whilst the instructions do state 250ml cold water, there is always the risk that some consumers do not follow them properly, and there is no warning against the possible effects. There is also no evidence of any sort of money-back guarantee.
Taking into account these risks, the lack of warnings, and no way of getting your money back if you aren’t satisfied, we do not recommend VitaSmart Twiggy 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.

VitaSmart Twiggy is an appetite suppressing weight loss drink made by and sold by VitaSmart in the Czech Republic. It has just two key ingredients – glucomannan and cinnamon, and the description on Amazon claims that ‘Twiggy® contains the most glucomannan (1500 mg) and the strongest cinnamon extract in one sachet’. Whether this is true or not, we do not know.
VitaSmart is a company based in the Czech Republic. They are a family run company, set up in 2015 by a couple named Christina and Tomos. According to their website, they began it after Christina researched diet and wellbeing whilst pregnant with their son. She wanted to improve her diet and immunity without spending lots of money on various pills and drinks. She was also concerned about the number of food supplements imported into the Czech Republic from other countries, which were rebranded and repackaged, so customers weren’t one hundred percent sure of what was in them.
They manufacture and sell the Twiggy drink in three different flavours – natural, citrus mix, and forest fruit, as well as a collagen supplement.
This is what the Amazon listing for the product says.
- The lose weight, reduce cholesterol and sugar in your blood. Enjoy and feel the amazing drink that helps control your appetite.
- Twiggy® contains the most glucomannan (1500 mg) and the strongest cinnamon extract in one sachet.
- No matter which weight loss plan you are following (keto, Atkins,…), Twiggy® is a right choice to integrate into your day to help you feel fuller for longer.
- Use 3 sachets a day if you want to lose weight more or whether you take just 1 a day to help you maintain weight. Twiggy® will help you achieve your goal! Drink 10-20 minutes before a meal to suppress the appetite.
- Twiggy® is free from: artificial colours, flavours, starch, milk, lactose, soya, gluten, wheat, yeast. No added sugar or salt. GMO Free.
It will work, because glucomannan is a fiber which absorbs water in the stomach, leaving you feeling fuller for longer. You’ll consume fewer calories, and in turn, will lose weight. Cinnamon is also known to have some positive effects on appetite suppressant and weight loss.
These ingredients are per sachet of VitaSmart Twiggy.
None have been directly linked to this particular product. However, too much glucomannan can cause minor gastrointestinal problems such as bloating, wind, and diarrhea. If you suffer from diabetes, it is important to seek medical advice before taking this as it can lower blood sugar levels.
As with all supplements, seek advice from a health professional if you take any prescribed or over the counter medication, suffer with any health conditions, are pregnant or breastfeeding.
We were unable to find many reviews for the product, however, this may be because it is only sold in the Czech Republic and due to certain laws, many of the websites are inaccessible. There is just one review on Amazon, and this suggests that it works:
I am absolutely happy with this product. Great flavour! I reduced my weight and I keep it same and I don’t eat sweet anymore. I can 100% recommend.

We cannot find any evidence that VitaSmart Twiggy offer a money-back guarantee or returns policy of any description. However, on the website, there is a rather lengthy description of how to make a complaint if your product is delivered damaged by PPL (their consignment company, it appears), which includes taking photos from various angles.
Outside of the Czech Republic, it appears that VitaSmart Twiggy can only be purchased on Amazon, for £19.90. If you are a resident of the Czech Republic, you can buy it from the VitaSmart website or from certain pharmacies. They will also ship to Slovakia.
