ASA Ruling: Supreme Slim

Continue Reading 0

I argued to the ASA that Supreme Slim:

  • Could not prove that the mix of ingredients in this product would result in weight-loss
  • That the claim that the product was completely herbal was a lie
  • That it tries to give the impression that it is registered with the Medicines Control Council
  • That the name "Supreme Slim" is misleading – "slim" gives the impression that the product can result in weight loss.

How did the ASA rule?

A new weight-loss product has been released onto the South African market: Supreme Slim.

Comment: 

  1. This product claims to result in weight loss, but we are unaware of any studies that show that this product is effective.
  2. This product uses ingredients common to other weight loss products – ingredients have not been shown to be effective in weight loss.
  3. The ingredients in this product have been used in various combinations in other failed weight-loss products: why would they suddenly be working effectively in this product?
  4. When consumers health, money and safety is concerned, we can only argue for proof for the product, for without proof, we have to argue that it is no more than a scam.

I was told about a new product called Supreme Slim the other day. http://www.supremeslim.co.za/ [no longer active]

At the bottom of the webpage it states that the Chairman and CEO of Wellness Forever which is marketing Supreme Slim is Charles Bothma. Near the top of the page it gives a cell number for orders: 079 108 1182

If you check out an old webpage of Simply Slim: http://www.simplyslim.co.za/index.php?option=com_sobi2&catid=27&Itemid=90  [no longer active] you will see that there’s a Charles Bothma with the same cell number: 0791081182  Registered Number: S1141.

It turns out that these are different products, and Supreme Slim was brought out by an Charles Bothma who worked for the notorious Simply Slim company but started marketing his newly developed product while working for that company!

The original Supreme Slim webpage — made virtually identical claims to the original claims made by Simply Slim including not needing exercise and … Read the rest
