Do slimming capsules actually work?
That’s probably the question you have every time a new diet fad comes around. From teatox drinks to psyllium husk additives and conventional diet pills, there are a lot of products out there in the market that claim to be the answer to your weight loss troubles. Every person has a different experience with each, and you should always question the effectiveness of any slimming supplements so you can get all the facts before you commit to a new health regimen.
The product in question today is a beauty offering called Detoxi Slim Plus. There are (rightly) always concerns over slimming products, but we wouldn’t be featuring these in today’s review without having the good faith that the ingredients listed on the bottle are safe, but it’s always worth digging a little deeper. There’s a lot to be said about these dietary supplements, so this Detoxi Slim review is broken into sections to make it easier for you to understand every aspect of the products.
Before we get into the product review, please note that slimming pills are NOT a substitute for exercise and a healthy diet. You also should not be taking any supplements or weight loss management pills if you have any existing health conditions. Even if you feel you are in perfect health you should book an appointment with your doctor and discuss things directly with a health professional before using any supplements at all.
If you start to feel faint, have shortness of breath, or feel depressed then ensure you stop taking any supplements and seek immediate medical assistance.
Keeping that in mind, let’s talk about Detoxi Slim.
What Detoxi Slim Is and How Detoxi Slim Works
There are two variations of Detoxi Slim capsules: Detoxi Slim Original and Detoxi Slim Plus. They both function as detoxifying agents, but the latter is slightly more potent and yields faster results. For a comparison, one woman on the original capsules might lose around 3 kg in one week, while another on the Detoxi Slim Plus could potentially lose up to 5 kg in one week.
At the very basic level, these capsules are essentially diet supplements, but they don’t contain manufactured, and non Thailand FDA approved chemical compounds. They’re made from organic ingredients that be all accounts are safe, and they’re all listed on the bottle, which you can look up individually if you have any concerns. Every ingredient has detoxifying properties, and together they form these capsules that flush out your digestive tract of all those toxins that soak up all the unhealthy fats, slow your metabolism, make you bloated, etc. With the help of these supplements, you’ll be able to break down fats at a faster rate, absorb less fat, and have regular bowel movements. Additionally, less fat absorption and improved metabolism decreases cellulite, which are the fat deposits that have pushed through your connective tissue underneath your skin.
Another one of the Detoxi Slim effects is that it keeps you fuller longer, which is really helpful since it reduces your chances of eating more than the recommended calories per meal, or give into cravings. Say goodbye to midnight snacks and that second and third helping of white rice!

How to Take Detoxi Slim
A lot of slimming products out there need to be taken before every meal to suppress your appetite, thereby decrease the amount of food needed to make you feel full. It’s a hassle, especially when you’re at work or have weekend plans to try new restaurants in town, but luckily, Detoxi Slim capsules only have to be taken once a day in the mornings.
Take the maximum of two pills in the morning with water. It’s your choice of taking them either before or after your first meal, though it’s definitely more convenient taking them before breakfast, whether you have breakfast at home or take something to go on the way to the office. You get it out of your way while you’re still at home, and you don’t have to bring it with you to work.
Detoxi Slim Side Effects
Diet supplements tend to have some less than ideal effects on your digestive system, especially because your body is readjusting to supplements that change the way you eat. Side effects can include bloating or constipation, or having to use the bathroom much more than you’re comfortable with. The Detoxi Slim softgels have apparently been designed while keeping such common side effects in mind. For the most part, Detoxi Slim testimonials across the web have indicated experiences of dry mouth. There have been other reports by users of light-headedness and increased heart rate, if you start to feel unwell then stop taking the supplements immediately and seek medical assistance from your doctor or health professional.
There is also a possibility that Detoxi Slim may cause a reaction when paired with other medications or supplements, so it is best that you seek advice from a medical professional if you are on other meds. Even if you aren’t and just have some concerns, please always remember that it is better to speak to a doctor before you take these types of weight management products.
How to Spot Fake Detoxi Slim Capsules
Unfortunately, there are lots of people who have used the brand name as a scam, claiming to be the same authentic supplements but for extremely cheap. Most people can’t tell the differences between the labels of the fake and real bottles, since they’re both very similar.
Instead of just checking the bottles, the best way to tell if the capsules are fake is by actually opening the bottle up. For the Original Detoxi Slim capsules, they should be white with white powder inside, while the Detoxi Slim Plus softgels are a yellow-green color.
It is our understanding that it is these fake batches of Detoxi Slim that specifically contain “Sibutramine”, a substance that it is not listed as an ingredient on the latest bottles and therefor should not be present, that have appeared in news stories.
There are also stores on Lazada selling “Detoxi Slim Perfect Legs” and claiming that this is the same product with new packaging and sachets. Upon inspection these products are manufactured by a company called JB Cosmetic Co LTD. The original Detoxi Slim are STILL being sold in bottles and are manufactured by JP Natural Cosmetics Co LTD. So it would seem that JB cosmetics and the sellers of “Detoxi Slim Perfect Legs” are purposefully trying to deceive consumers.
Where to Buy Detoxi Slim
Wondering where you can get your hands on these slimming capsules? The non-controversial Detoxi Slim Plus Softgels can be found on Lazada and directly for sale here on Pretty Me. The Original Detoxi Slim can also be searched on Lazada from the many various merchants who list both these products on the shopping platform.
If you have any questions about these products, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below, but please always consult a health professional before taking any new supplements and immediately stop taking them should you feel unwell.
