Weider Burn Slim is a weight loss supplement that is predominantly on sale in the Philippines, and it is based around garcinia cambogia and green tea, two ingredients that are extremely popular in supplements. Weider is a well-known brand founded by Joe Weider, who is often regarded as the father of bodybuilding. According to the company information, the brand was established in 1936, so it is a well-established name in the supplements world.
In this in-depth review, we cover everything you need to know about Weider Burn Slim.
Weider Burn Slim is a weight-loss supplement on sale solely in the Philippines as far as we can see. Although it is advertised as coming from Weider Global, an international supplements company with its roots in the USA but operating also in Asia, there is zero information about manufacture or even it really is part of their organisation. Many people selling Weider Burn Slim are connected with a Philippines based MLM Company called AIM Global.
Leaving this confusion aside, Weider Burn Slim does not look much good. There is a lack of ingredient information and it is expensive. If you take three capsules a day as advised, your bottle will last only 10 days.
Potential side effects may include bloating and abdominal discomfort, gas, nausea, diarrhoea, headaches, or fishy body odour (l carnitine). It may also cause caffeine related side effects such as restlessness, anxiety, and insomnia depending on the (unknown) amount contained in this supplement and your own tolerance.
Weider Burn Slim is more expensive than it first appears. Each bottle contains 30 capsules but as you are advised to take three a day, this works out at only 10 days supply.
We have seen this supplement advertised on Lazada – the Philippines equivalent of eBay for 1400 PHP ($27.00 USD).
We have also seen it on sale from one AIM Global distributor for 1100 PHP ($23.00).
Weider Burn Slim is a weight-loss supplement that is predominantly on sale in the Philippines. According to the product information, it comes from Weider Global Nutrition, so you would imagine that this means Weider Asia Co.Ltd, a joint venture company between the two countries and based in Seoul South Korea.
Weider Burn Slim contains garcinia cambogia as the principle ingredient. This is a sour fruit that is well-known across Asia for its sour taste, but it is best known as a supposed miracle weight-loss ingredient.
Garcinia is high in hydroxycitric acid (HCA) which research suggests may have a carb-blocking effect. It seems to prevent a digestive enzyme called citrate amalyse from working effectively and, because this enzyme’s role is to break down carbs in order for the body to add fat, the idea is that preventing this from happening will help weight loss.
In addition, garcinia cambogia may help increase serotonin levels and so help prevent comfort eating as well as improve mood.
The other main ingredient is green tea extract. Lots of people take green tea supplements (as well as drinking the tea) because it is crammed full of antioxidants and can create a natural fat burning effect.
This supplement also contains conjugated linoleic acid, amino acid L carnitine, and white kidney bean extract. These three ingredients are combined in unknown quantities in a proprietary blend, which again does not provide any information about quantities. This information is printed on the box, but you will have no idea if it is strong enough to do anything at all or likely to cause side effects.
Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is derived from dairy products and beef, and is a group of fatty acids found in linoic acid. It may be effective for weight loss and many people believe it is a natural fat burner. L carnitine is also found in protein derived from meat and dairy and plays a role in energy production. White kidney bean extract is known as a natural starch blocker if taken in sufficient quantities.
All this sounds pretty good, but it is let down by inadequate product information.
Take 1-3 capsules daily.
You will not find Weider Burn Slim on sale in the USA or the UK. It does not show up on the Weider Global website. We assumed that this was because it was manufactured by Weider Asia, a subsidiary company of Weider Global.
We decided to check out the Weider Asia website to find out more, but what we found was less than impressive. The website has been under construction since 2013 and, although there is some brief product information, Weider Slim Burn is not mentioned as a Weider Asia supplement.
Where it does show up is in relation to a company called AIM Global, a supposed partner of Weider Global Nutrition. AIM global, or Alliance in Motion, appears to be an MLM Company operating in the Philippines.
We certainly have our alarm bells ringing with this supplement. It only seems to be on sale in the Philippines, has involvement with an MLM company, and the lack of adequate information about its background is a matter for concern. Is it even manufactured by Weider Asia? We just don’t know.
We previously reviewed Weider Fat Burners, a weight loss supplement on sale to the US market.
One company selling on Lazada the Philippines equivalent of eBay states the following claims:
Other advertisers make more extravagant claims based on individual ingredients. Such as these:
Garcinia Cambogia Extract:
Green Tea Extract:
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA):
Although clinical testing into the ingredients has found possible benefits, it is a total exaggeration to claim that Weider Slim Burn will live up to these claims.
According to the product packaging, this supplement is a Weider Super brand award winner and is manufactured by Weider Global Nutrition. We would have liked to have seen some evidence that this is true.
It is impossible to assess just how well this supplement will work when the majority of the ingredients are in completely unknown quantities.
What is certain, is that it will NOT work as described. Taking this supplement will not help you prevent cancer and prevent fat storage or any other of the overblown claims.
In our opinion, it is unlikely to help you lose much weight, but of course, if you combine it with a weight-loss diet and exercise program, you may notice some improvement.
That said, green tea and garcinia cambogia, the only two ingredients which come with any information regarding quantities, may have a slight effect. Green tea works best when paired with added caffeine, but is a generally good ingredient because of its high antioxidant content. Garcinia cambogia has been found to help weight-loss, but the size of the effect is very small.

We saw some before and after pics posted by some of the MLM distributors trying to sell this supplement. These all look impressive, but we feel they are unlikely to be genuine.
Elsewhere we were unable to find any customer reviews from people who have actually tried this supplement.
There is no money-back guarantee on offer for Weider Burn Slim.
Weider Burn Slim is only on sale in the Philippines. You can find it from people involved with AIM Global – an MLM company based in the Philippines. It is also on sale from independent retailers on Lazada, the Philippines equivalent of eBay.
We are not impressed with Weider Burn Slim. We would have been more positive had we actually seen some proof that this is a genuine Weider supplement, but despite extensive searching, this information was just not available. Instead, it seems to be connected with a Philippines MLM company called AIM Global and sold via a network of distributors. It is also on sale from an auction site similar to eBay.
The supplement itself does not look too bad. We like the individual ingredients and they may help support weight loss. The downside is that there is a total lack of information about the quantities, so it is impossible to know whether Weider Burn Slim will work or even whether it will cause side effects. There is no independent customer feedback available either.
Finally, although the price looks OK, on closer inspection, it is actually very expensive. Take as advised and each bottle will last only 10 days costing you well over 3000PHP (about $69) for a month’s supply.
We do not trust this supplement. It is certainly not worth the hassle of having it shipped over from the Philippines and if you are based in the Philippines, Weider Burn Slim is one to avoid.
