Slim Bombs Slimming Tablets

By | October 25, 2010

Slim Bombs herbal slimming tablets fall into the category of fat burners. The official website offers little product information, but makes dramatic claims about the results that can be achieved. According to the site, dieters can lose weight very quickly, without lifestyle changes, just by using their pills.

Slim Bombs are supposed to help increase metabolism and energy levels, burn fat through thermogenesis, and suppress appetite. The ingredients, as well as the claims, are similar to those of many other herbal fat burning formulas.

Active Ingredients
The ingredient list is not posted on the official website. This list has been compiled from the web pages of other diet pill companies and consumer reviews.

  • Bioperene
  • Biotin
  • Bee Pollen
  • Brazilian Cocoa
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Cha de Bugre
  • Chitosan
  • Garcinia Cambogia
  • Ginseng
  • Guarana seed
  • Gotu Kola
  • Green Tea Extract
  • Pantothenic Acid
  • Spirulina
  • Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, and B12
  • Vitamin C

The ingredient list is long and it seems to contain every herb and extract ever included in a fat burning formula. Of course, it is impossible to tell whether and how much of each of these ingredients is actually contained in the formula for Slim Bombs.

Potential Side Effects
Since Slim Bombs contains caffeine in several forms, possible side effects from the use of this product may include: headaches, nausea, dizziness, rapid heart beat, increased blood pressure, restlessness, anxiety, and insomnia. It should be noted that the use of Slim Bombs is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing, individuals who are sensitive to caffeine, individuals with known heart problems or high blood pressure, or for people taking MAOIs, NSAIDs, or certain other medications.

Efficacy
In the absence of clinical evidence and in light of mixed consumer reviews and an unverified list of ingredients, it is difficult to determine the potential efficacy of this product as a fat burner and appetite suppressant. It would appear to be somewhat effective, given the warnings and the fact that it contains caffeine.

Recommendations
The Slim Bombs brand of slimming tablets is not recommended as a weight loss aid due to lack of clinical studies, few and mixed consumer reviews, exaggerated claims, uncertainty about the ingredients list and warnings for people who should not take it.

Alternative Herbal Appetite Suppressants
Slimming products containing pure extracts of the South African Hoodia Gordonii are the most powerful appetite suppressants available without a prescription. Diet pills listing Hoodia as the only ingredient are not known to cause any negative side effects. Interested consumers should learn more about Hoodia Gordonii.
