Weight Loss (Slimming Tablets)

African Mango

This is an extract from the seeds of a fruit that grows in West Africa called African mango. The botanical name is Irvingia gabonesis. This fruit is known for its capacity to contribute to weight loss. Apparently, some tribes in Cameroon and Nigeria which consume this fruit regularly are well-known for their trim bodies.

People who took African Mango regularly 2 to 3 times a day reported significant weight-loss. However, it is reported this weight-loss did not continue after losing the first 6 to 7 Kgs of taking these slimming tablets.


Green Barley Plus

This is an extract made from green barley, usually sold in powder or capsule form. Green Barley Plus is one of the better known brands available in the market. In addition to green barley, each capsule also contains other additives like powdered biodynamic brown rice and kelp which have extra nutritive benefits.

Although the FDA has allowed barley to be mentioned in product labels and the benefits of barley are many, the actual efficacy of green barley for helping with slimming has not been yet proven.



These slimming tablets have the capacity to help body burn calories which results in weight-loss. Silvets are manufactured by various companies and contain natural ingredients like acai berries, guarana, green tea, cayenne powder and L carnitine tartrate.

The natural ingredients contained in Silvets work together to reduce appetite, increase energy levels even though you are eating less and guarana for example, enhances burning of body fat. L carnitine tartrate also has a similar effect, and green tea actually changes the body metabolism so that it burns fat instead of carbohydrates.


Garcinia Cambogia Actives

There are many slimming tablets in the market which use garcinia cambogia and it actually can be quite confusing. One of the most popular brands however, is Garcinia Cambogia Actives. In addition to being mainly composed of garcinia cambogia, these tablets also contain green tea, guarana, cayenne pepper, black pepper and green coffee, which are all natural extracts known for their role in weight-loss. The advantage of all these ingredients that they are naturally-produced, so there is little possibility of side effects.


Acai Berry Extreme

Acai berries which are native to Brazil are well-known for their weight-loss properties. Available on Amazon.com, this health supplement claims to be good for weight loss and deep cleansing. The antioxidant properties of acai berries are known to be more powerful than other berries like cranberries, raspberries, blackberries or blueberries.

Acai berries have cholesterol controlling properties as well. Therefore, it is a useful slimming tablet that you can take which will not only help you lose weight, but improve your general health.


The Dynamics of Slimming Tablets

The basic action of slimming tablets are more or less the same. The high soluble fiber content in the seed of African mango is supposed to create a weight-loss action in the body. Acai berries are well-known as effective antioxidants and they help to burn fat. Garcinia Cambogia Actives is a multipurpose supplement in that garcinia cambogia is good for treating health problems related to joint pain, poor digestion, painful ulcers, edema, and menstruation problems.

We also have other brands like Silvets which is a combination of all these ingredients and Green Barley Plus which is combined with garcinia cambogia resulting in weight-loss properties as well as some additional health benefits.

Different products may behave differently with different individuals, so it would be wise to try each one out and eventually you would probably find out a particular supplement that suits you best. What is required while taking slimming tablets is a daily dose of a tablet a day and a huge dose of patience, because some tablets will show results only over a period of time.

Benefits and effectiveness

While there is much being said for and against slimming tablets, we don’t want to stand in judgement of people who have a real problem and are trying to do something about it. Slimming tablets have their advantages and limitations. African Mango for instance, seems to have limited effectiveness. Acai berries seem to be the most effective and Acai Berry Extreme seems to be a well-researched product.

On the other hand there are other brands like Garcinia Cambogia Actives, Green Barley Plus and Silvets that have varying effectiveness, where some users expressed satisfaction and others did not. Although slimming tablets mainly benefit us in the form of weight-loss, there are several other benefits as well:

  • The main function of slimming pills is weight-loss
  • Most slimming pills also contain antioxidants which result in cleansing the body
  • Digestion is improved
  • Garcinia cambogia is added to most slimming pills which also provides relief for joint pain, ulcers edema and menstrual-related problems
  • Increased energy levels due to increased metabolism

Before you start on slimming pills, do consult your doctor, who will rule out any side-effects from reaction to any existing medication.
