[Product Review] Superfruit Slim; Part One

18th May 2013

Details

02-sfs

I was approached a little while back, and asked if I wanted to try out a dietary supplement, by the name of Superfruit Slim. I did a little research into the supplement, and its ingredients, and decided to try it out after seeing how much guarana seed and Green Tea extract was in it. My psychiatrist suggested, last summer, that I increase my non-existent green tea intake. It’s supposed to be very good for general health, and weight loss in particular. He even said that if it’s green tea extract, it does exactly the same as drinking your green tea.

(Which is excellent news, as I’m a coffee fan, and this comic explains perfectly how I feel about tea.)

So yes. I decided to give it a go.

Packaging/Product

I received my package last week. I was very impressed with the packaging itself. There were no glaring marks on the outside stating that it was from any online herbal remedy stores, or anything of that nature. (Trust me, I’ve had it in the past. I was pretty sure that one of my packages from a supplement store was going to be confiscated by Royal Mail for containing illegal drugs, it looked so bad.)

01-packaging

I don’t know why I fuzzed my name and address out. It’s on my who.is, anyway. But moving swiftly on. You can see the actual bottle at the top of the page. Shows acai berries, raspberries, and mangoes on the label. Gives the supplement facts on the right-hand side in an easy-to-read black-on-white box, just like the nutritional information on food.

03-ingredients

The bottle has your typical “sealed for your protection” seal inside the lid.

04-protection

And inside that, the little cotton wool ball to stop the pills bouncing around or whatever it’s for (I honestly have no idea!) and a little silica gel pouch. The actual pill shown for illustrative purposes: approx 0.875″ in length.

Impressions So Far

I’ve been taking the pills as directed (one in the morning, one in the afternoon) for just over a week now, and I can honestly say I’ve found a marked improvement in my energy levels.

I don’t feel anywhere near as tired in the middle of the day.

Unfortunately I can’t comment much on the claims of it decreasing appetite, as I’ve had pretty much none for the past two months anyway. But I’m definitely enjoying the fact that I don’t want to go and lie down in the middle of the day right now. I can get through almost a normal day’s hours without wanting to curl up next to the cat.

Which is a marked improvement, let me tell you.

Alas, it doesn’t do anything for depression, manic swings, or anxiety, so I’m still having to cope with them, but I’m at least getting a little more work done around the house. I believe I tweeted today about doing my dishes before midnight…?

Which says a lot in and of itself.

I’ll do a full, proper review of how I feel they’ve helped, if at all, once the full container has been used at the end of the month (not the end of May; probably sometime closer to June 5 or 6). But so far, I’m feeling positive.

    Does the energy wear off around a certain time? Because there were some pills that I’ve used in the past and the energy kept me going till past 11pm

    • I've had pills like that, too! These ones aren't as bad; they definitely keep me awake longer than a cup of coffee does, but it doesn't affect my sleeping pattern, for which I'm glad. Obviously, the later I take them, the later the effects last until – I find that taking them as stated on the instructions, no later than 5pm, means that the energy has worn off in time for bed time. 🙂

      Hope that helps!

    How have they worked for you so far? there are practically no user reviews of the product to be found online!

    • They're working out fine so far! I'll be doing a full review of how I feel they've helped in the first or second week of June – once I've finished the full 30 days' worth of tablets. 🙂 So hopefully that'll be of more help for someone looking for an unbiased review of whether they actually work or not.

      • Cupcake

        Looking forward to reading your review. Have you last any weight during the few weeks of taking them or just gained more energy?

        • Hi, Cupcake! The second review's up now here – I feel like the tablets definitely helped me lose the weight that I lost (overall I've gained just over a pound, if I can count?! Haha, too lazy to go check.) in the weeks that I lost, but I lost inches in a month that I wasn't expecting, which I think is far more significant, considering I did gain a little weight.

          The increased energy was a great deal of help. 🙂 Considering how much I had to run about this past month, what with therapy and everything, I don't think I'd have actually gotten through it without the SuperFruit Slim!

    Does anyone know how many pounds these pills combined with diet and excerise daily, help you loose weekly?

  • Holly

    I lost 7 pounds in 2 weeks on this but then I gained 2 the following week. Energy levels were fantastic but then by the 4th week I was having stomach pains. I found that I had to eat something quite filling to avoid pains which doesn’t make sense to eat more when ur trying to lose weight, unless anyone can explain it to me? I know that generally losing weight can be a struggle that you fluctuate but did anyone else find thid when taking them?

    • Sorry to hear that, Holly! I don’t know what to say, either, as it wasn’t something I experienced. However, re: eating more to lose weight, sometimes that does make sense – when I first joined Weight Watchers, I almost had to double my food intake to lose weight! Eating too little is almost as bad as eating too much. It’s harder if/when you’re not following a specific food plan, however, to know if you should up your food intake or whether you’re eating the correct amount. Sorry I don’t have any better answers for you. (If you’re having serious problems, I’d say ask your GP, or see a dietitian – they’d both be able to help you out with the stomach pains, I’d hope.)
