A weight loss supplement “backed by science”, TAISlim can be a little indescript about what exactly that research turned up. “Unmatched scientific vigor” sounds nice, as long as it refers to weight loss. With a whole “weight loss system” including shakes, drinks, and a liquid weight loss formula, selling for $219.95, TAISlim better be freaking amazing!
Where Are These Studies?
We’ve heard about “science” every time we read about a new diet pill, and most of it turns out to be bunk. In this case, TAISlim describes a specific study conducted over 3 months randomized, placebo controlled, and double blind of course. At the end of the study, subjects who used TAISlim were able to lose 4 times as much body weight, 6 times as much body fat, and six times more inches.
Is this study legitimate?
We have our doubts. It was probably sponsored by the makers of TAISlim, making it potentially biased, okay totally biased. There has never been any published study so far that has ever tested an over the counter diet pill, unless of course you count Alli. However, we can see why you might lose weight if you’re replacing meals with these drinks and protein drink mixes. We still expect that TAISlim will provide at least one blend with clinically proven weight loss ingredients.
Which Ingredients Are You Relying On?
TAISlim’s liquid formula does have some weight loss ingredients that are a little more clear (and usable even if you don’t replace half your meals). It uses teas ranging from green tea to black and white teas, all of which are capable of promoting healthy fat burning combined with antioxidant benefits, and TAISlim has plenty of other antioxidants such as Himalayan goji fruit.
Combined with healthy amino acids such as l-tyrosine, which hopefully support lean muscle mass, these ingredients could definitely increase metabolism.
Is TAISlim Enough?
With several different products and a huge combined price tag (you are expected to buy all of the products), it’s hard not to expect a lot from TAISlim. Does TAISlim live up to our expectations for it? That remains to be seen. TAISlim only has one formula that has the conventional weight loss ingredients we look for if you want to achieve long term results.
However, we could see using the other blends to get you started on the war path, as long as you don’t use them for too long. You don’t want to become dependent on protein drink meal replacements just to maintain your weight.
