BioRhythm Slim to None Review
BioRhythm Slim to None, claims it eases mid-section bloating and water retention while promoting regular bowel movements. Sounds good right?
Then again, many competing detox products make the same promises.
So is there any reason you should choose Slim to None over those other products? Read on and see what my research found out.
What Are the Ingredients?
Slim to None uses twelve ingredients in two blends.
Colon Cleansing Blend (650 mg)
Buckthorn bark is a traditional European treatment for constipation. Many people use it as a laxative to cleanse their gastrointestinal tract.
Flax seeds have soluble and insoluble fibers that regulate bowel movements and eliminate unwanted toxins. As an added benefit, flax seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids which promote heart health.
Bentonite clay is another popular detox ingredient that absorbs and removes toxins from the body. It also promotes healthy bacteria growth in the digestive system.
Cascara sagrada is a stimulant laxative that stimulates the muscles of the lower intestines, resulting in regularity and looser stools.
Peppermint leaves help speed up how quickly food is emptied from the stomach and passed through the digestive system, allowing you to eliminate toxins and waste more efficiently.
Slippery elm has been used for centuries to treat stomach problems. It contains mucilage, a substance that becomes a slick gel that coats and soothes the stomach and intestines. It also contains antioxidants that fight inflammatory bowel conditions.
Aloes are laxative medicinal plantsthat expel toxins and waste, resulting in a healthier colon and intestinal tract.
Senna is a natural laxative that increases smooth muscle contractions. This results in more regular bowel movements and toxin eliminations. Senna also increases the fluid excretion of the intestinal tract and softens stool.
Bloating Relief Blend (225 mg)
Uva ursi is a shrub that has been used for centuries as a mild diuretic. Modern studies show it works in the intestine tract, acting as a diuretic and improving intestinal health by fighting against harmful bacteria. Uva ursi also facilitates weight loss.
Milk thistle contains both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, promoting greater overall health while protecting the cells from injury. Many people claim it also lowers cholesterol levels and treats various liver problems.
Boldo leaf increases urine flow, helping to eliminate excess fluids. It also kills harmful bacteria and treats bladder infections.
Burdock acts as an antioxidant, protecting the body from infections while enhancing metabolism.
How Do I Use It?
Take one capsule prior to going to bed for 7 – 14 days. For optimal effectiveness, take another capsule upon waking up with an empty stomach. Make use to take at least 8 oz. of water with each capsule.
Do not take for longer than 14 consecutive days.
Are There Possible Side Effects?
The ingredients in Slim to None can cause mild side effects such as nausea, diarrhea, indigestion, gas, and stomach discomfort. Senna and cascara sagrada can also cause cramps. Also, boldo leaf can cause liver damage and block bile ducts in large doses.
It should be noted that buckthorn bark has been known to cause serious side effects if used for more than eight days. These side effects include low potassium, heart problems, and blood problems.
Any concern over possible side effects could be alleviated if BioRhythm decides to provide information on the individual dosages for each ingredient in Slim to None.
How Much Does It Cost?
The best online deals for Slim to None are from the following vendors:
• GNC.com: $49.99 for one bottle (60 capsules)
• LuckyVitamin.com:$39.99 for one bottle
• BodyBuilding.com: $49.99 for one bottle
BioRhythm offers a return policy on unopened products but doesn’t provide any money back guarantee once you open and try Slim to None.
BioRythm’s Slim to None looks like a useful tool for cleansing the body and losing a little weight. The ingredients are effective and most of them don’t have serious side effects. The price is also reasonable for the quality of ingredients.
However, the lack of any money back guarantee is disheartening.
Though Slim to None appears to be an effective detox product, I can’t recommend it. There are many other detox products on the market that are cheaper, more effective, and provide a money back guarantee. Try one of those products before Slim to None.
