Slim Force 7 Supplement Review: Buyer Beware!

Slim Force 7 Supplement Review: Buyer Beware!

Editor’s Update (June, 2015): After searching, it would appear that Slim Force 7 has been discontinued.

Slim Force 7 is a text-book example of exactly what you should avoid in a weight loss product. Let’s put the ingredients aside for a moment, and consider that the advertising of this product has been referred to both U.S. and Canadian regulatory agencies for not responding to a NAD inquiry (the National Advertising Division of the Council of Better Business Bureaus) regarding product claims that have no evidence to substantiate them.

And the folks selling Slim Force 7 have no problems throwing some real whoppers out there. Some of the more comical ones? They claim their product will…

“… make you lose weight eating anything you like, without letting you ever get fat again.”

And that you can lose weight very quickly…

“…in the first 3 weeks it’s possible to lose up to 2 pounds a day, without any effort.”

This is completely ridiculous, of course. There is no substance on the planet that works this well; not even the most potent prescription weight loss drugs. Neither of these two are my favorite, however. In my opinion, this one takes the cake…

“Slim Force 7 is a weight loss product that has been the subject of many studies and research. Recent studies have shown that the 6 fruits and the algae contained in it, combined together, are able to stop fats from depositing and help to eliminate them daily. This results in the most rapid weight loss ever seen in a completely natural product.”

Riiiiiight.

Slim Force 7 is the subject of exactly ZERO studies and published research. And there are no studies that show that an indeterminate amount of 6 various fruits and 1 algae “stop fat from being deposited.”

And what are the ingredients, exactly? According to the web site…

“The Slim Force 7 treatment consists of grapefruit, lemon, orange, mango, pineapple, and pomegranate acids plus one fat burning algae.”

Really?

Pomegranate, for example, contains small amounts of ascorbic and citric acids, and tiny amounts of boric acid. Citric acid is a common ingredient in any food product that requires a “sour” taste, and ascorbic acid is more commonly known as Vitamin C. Nothing here to suggest pomegranate acids have incredible fat burning powers. Same for the remainder of the ingredients.

Frankly, these guys could have gotten a little more creative here. Grapefruit, for instance, contains a flavonoid called narignin that has been a staple ingredient in weight loss ingredients for years, mostly for its ability to lower cholesterol levels. Bitter orange can be standardized for synephrine. It’s not an ingredient that shows much more than the most subtle weight loss effects, but its inclusion would at least indicate the retailers have completed some basic research in formulating their product.

6 fruit acids and 1 fat burning, yet un-named algae?

Give me a break.

And remember… there certainly is no evidence to indicate that this 7 ingredient blend of indeterminate strength and potency works together synergistically to deliver results above and beyond the sum of each individual one.

So let’s sum up Slim Force 7…

  • None of the claims are based on anything remotely resembling evidence. It’s for this reason that the aforementioned NAD inquiry was sent.
  • The retailers have out and out lied about the research status of this product.
  • The description of the mechanics of the product’s effectiveness is incredibly vague; this is often a sign of a “scam” product.
  • There appears to be absolutely no thought put into the formula. It’s as if the retailers thought, “hey, let’s capitalize on the superfruit craze and make some money”. Delivering some value in their product seems to be of lesser importance. It’s relatively easy to create a product with some merit (i.e. throw a little caffeine and green tea together with a couple of blood sugar moderators and a nootropic), but these guys haven’t even bothered to do that.

Bottom line? As for any product, the onus is on the retailer to substantiate his/her claims. They haven’t done so. If recent studies really did validate this product, don’t you think they would have been paraded front and center?

Give Slim Force 7 a miss. Seriously.

  1. Do not buy this product if you even have one thought that you might return it. I returned this on May 1st and have yet to receive my refund. I’ve contacted customer service over 12 times and have been promised every time that emails are being sent and that I should receive my refund in 7-10 business days. I’m now having to take steps with my credit card company to get my money back.

  2. I give your customer service a zero. We placed an order about 4 months ago. You had to back order for so long we canceled the order and requested a refund. We’ve called and emailed multiple times. Still no refund. Not very good for business!

    Editor’s comments: Just to clarify Violet, Slim force 7 is not our product; we do not sell or fulfill ANY products. So it’s not “our” customer service you are complaining about, but that of the SF7’s retailers.

  3. Slim Force 7 ripped me off. I ordered from them. Then they back ordered the product. It took so long so I asked for a refund. It’s been 4 months. No refund. I would never do business with them again. I wonder how many other people they have not refunded what the owe them?

  5. I ordered it 2 months ago and tried to cancel the order because it wasn’t getting to me. Well they completely ignored my email and it was sent to me anyway. From what I’ve read, it really doesn’t work. I’m not even sure I want to try it or have it in my possession.

    I went to the hospital because they made me sick within 3 days of taking them. I’m very disappointed – not only in the product, but in the customer service! What a joke! Do not buy this crap!

  9. This product is nothing but a placebo it has no benefit at all. I tried eating normal like the ad said and I tried dieting while taking it. I might has well have taken a sugar pill. I wasted about $90.00.
