“If you don’t lose weight, you don’t pay!” This bold promise is the first thing I saw on the official Sliminex website. Naturally, I was intrigued; but also skeptical. Unless it’s backed by a powerful formula, Sliminex may not deliver the promised weight loss.
Unfortunately, online information is limited, so finding the truth about Sliminex took a lot of work. But here’s what I did find:
Green Coffee Bean Extract – prevents the body from absorbing fat and increases metabolism. Research shows that green coffee bean extract reduces body weight, BMI, and body fat. 
Raspberry Ketone – breaks down fat cells and helps the body burn them faster. It also regulates adiponectin, which boosts metabolism.
Saffron Extract – reduces appetite and sugar cravings. It relieves stress and improves mood, too.
Green Tea Extract – increases fat burning and energy. Green tea extract also reduces appetite and blood sugar. In one study, green tea reduced body fat, body weight, BMI, and waist circumference. 
Garcinia Cambogia – suppresses appetite and enhances fat-burning. Hydroxycitric acid (garcinia cambogia extract) burns carbs before they turn into fat.
L Carnitine – supposedly speeds up metabolism and promotes weight loss. Research is limited or inconclusive.
Konjac – this fiber reduces hunger and promotes satiety by expanding in the stomach.  Another name for konjac is glucomannan.
Trimethylxanthine – boosts energy, promotes thermogenesis, and reduces cravings.  Thermogenesis is a process that causes faster calorie burn.
Is Sliminex Safe and Effective?
I don’t know if Sliminex has safe, effective dosages. The official website does not provide any ingredient amounts; total or individual. Sliminex has effective ingredients, but without recommended dosages, it will be ineffective. Sliminex has three caffeine sources: green coffee bean extract, green tea extract, and trimethylxanthine. If it contains a large caffeine dosage, it may cause these side effects:
Sliminex has natural ingredients and most are safe. But I am concerned about hydroxycitric acid. Recently, several diet pills caused serious health problems and even death. It’s believed–but unproven–that hydroxycitric acid is the culprit.
Sliminex User Reviews
Sliminex does not have many online user reviews. However, the company has received some negative feedback on complaint sites. Consumers say they were overcharged, misinformed, or misled by deceptive advertising.

Sliminex has effective ingredients. I don’t know if it has safe, effective dosages. It may have an unsafe ingredient (garcinia cambogia). Customer reviews and online information are limited, which is disconcerting. Natural diet pills can be fake or dangerous. The more you know about Sliminex, the better.
I don’t recommend using Sliminex. It is overpriced and ambiguous. Instead, try a well-known diet pill with clinically proven, safe ingredients and recommended dosages.
