Natrol Slenderite Review
Starting out with a claim that it MAY increase metabolism, not will, but may, Natrol Slendrite goes on to promise that their product will help improve mood, metabolize fats and proteins for energy, and neutralize carbs. They focus on the idea of being based on EGCG, a component of green tea, and 5-HTP. They even provide you with a specified meal plan and exercise plan to maximize your results. But one might wonder, with such a strict plan if that is actually their plan to help you lose weight rather than the actual diet pill.
Ingredients and Mechanism of Action
Apparently, Natrol Slenderite includes green tea, caffeine, phase 2, chromium picolinate, and 5-HTP. But nowhere do they provide a label or otherwise a complete ingredients list.
Unfortunately, they do not provide quantities of said ingredients either and no other ways to justify their claims. Chromium picolinate requires at least 200mcg, green tea at least 400mg, Phase 2 requires at least 200mg, and 5-HTP is actually not a weight loss ingredient at all, but a mood enhancer. The likelihood that Slenderite uses these quantities of each of these ingredients with the fact that they do not disclose them is unlikely. It is unlikely at best that Natrol Slenderite will promote weight loss with these components.
Natrol Slenderite is not safe to take if:
- You have a pre-existing medical condition such as heart disease
- You have a family history of medical conditions such as heart disease
- You have caffeine sensitivities
- You have high blood pressure
- You have a liver condition
- You are using an MAO Inhibitor
- You suffer from glaucoma
Possible Side Effects
- Irregular heart beat
- Loss of appetite
Overall Impression of Natrol Slenderite:
Natrol Slenderite retails for $22.99, meaning at $22.99 paying employees, shipping costs, packaging costs, and costs of manufacturing the product and ingredients, they are still making a significant profit. So that means, the actual ingredients probably cost around $0.50. Being that Phase 2 for one is a patented ingredient, and green tea is cheap, but not that cheap, Slenderite is unlikely to help you with anything. We would therefore suggest a product that costs more than $0.50 to make.
