Regeneslim Review – can the ingredients in these little capsules really help control your appetite?
Regeneslim is a diet supplement manufactured in the US which combines two trademarked ingredients – ChromeMate and Super Citrimax – with a few additional components.
It claims to offer an impressive range of health benefits – improving insulin function, maintaining blood sugar and cholesterol levels, enhancing cardiovascular health, suppressing appetite, promoting lean body mass and healthy weight management.
According to the manufacturer and the official website, all these benefits will be achieved simply through regular use of the product, without any change to lifestyle or diet.
Are the Regeneslim ingredients scientifically proven?
There is some scientific evidence that ChromeMate (chromium nicotinate), one of the two primary ingredients, may help to maintain levels of blood sugar and cholesterol which are already within the normal range, and may have a role to play in preventing diabetes.
A study in 2007 found Chromium had no significant effect on lipid or glucose metabolism in people without diabetes, although it did benefit patients who were diabetic.
The second primary ingredient – SuperCitriMax – is an extract from the Garcinia Cambogia fruit. The scientific evidence appears somewhat inconclusive at present, although one clinical trial into the effectiveness of the extract on weight loss showed that those taking the extract lost the greatest amount of fat.
Regeneslim contains hydroxycitric acid, from Garcinia Cambogia, which evidence has shown to be an effective appetite suppressant, as well as helping to maintain healthy levels of insulin.
It should be noted that most of the studies on humans have been very small, and further research is needed before the weight loss properties of hydroxicitric acid can be conclusively proved.
Warnings about the supplement
It is the presence of Methylphenethylamine which is most worrying in this supplement since it is thought to raise blood pressure.
The continued sale of the product, with no alteration to its ingredients, suggests the company may be flouting the law. The onus is very firmly on the company to produce scientific evidence proving the safety of the ingredient and the overall effectiveness of the product.
What are the customers saying?
The manufacturer’s website includes testimonials from four apparently satisfied customers who each claim to have lost an incredible amount of weight in a very short time (the most impressive being 58lb in 60 days!).
It’s difficult to find independent customer reviews for this relatively new product, however it is endorsed by American celebrity Taylor Armstrong, who starred in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
No doubt she was handsomely paid for her participation in promoting this product.
Regeneslim review conclusion – Is it worth buying?
This is an expensive product, costing $89.70 for 30 days’ supply, or $179.40 for 60 days. There is no scientific evidence supporting the claims of the manufacturer in terms of either weight loss or health benefits.
The inclusion of an ingredient which has been banned by the FDA, and the manufacturer’s decision to continue selling the product despite a strong warning from the FDA about the potential serious risks to health, should be sufficient to convince anyone considering purchasing this product to think again.
Alternatives to consider…Garcinia Cambogia
The only real ingredient worthy of mention here is Garcinia Cambogia – an effective natural fat burner and appetite suppressant which has shot to fame in recent years thanks to a glowing Dr OZ TV endorsement.
Our advice as always is to choose an ingredient which has good feedback and find a supplement that contains just that, in a good dose.
