Slimbetti Active Xtreme – another scam

Posted 05 March 2013

A consumer laid a complaint with the ASA submitting that according to Slimbetti’s website, the two main ingredients are “Irvingia gabonensis” and green tea. There are limited studies for the ingredient Irvingia gabonensis on its own as quoted on the respondent’s website, but the complainant was unable to find a study where these two ingredients were combined, or combined in the same concentrations as is the case in this product.

Dr David Nye substantiated the product for SlimBetti. However the ASA Directorate was not satisfied that the weight loss claims made in the advertisement were appropriately and unequivocally verified as true and applicable to the product as a whole when consumed at the recommended dose and ruled against the claims for the product.

Readers will be aware that the same scam artists responsible for the other SlimBetti products, and previously SlenderMax, namely Jasmine and Chris GrindlayRead the rest

    i have been using slimbetti and also i received a free hoodia gel which apparently suppost to supress my appetite and help me lose weight, im using it for a month now and havent lost a kilo with it, in fact, i just decided to eat less on my own, and cut down on my supper and i found that helped me but the tablets never helped me one bit to even supress my appetite cos i still feel hungry

    WOW! so interesting, and I’m glad I stumbled upon this page. I had the exact same issue as Samantha. I bought the Slimbetti ThermoBurn – used it for a week EXACTLY as indicated, but it never suppressed my apetite. It did not make a difference at all! I almost went out to buy another of their products in the hope that something else might work. I wonder now what they actually put in these pills?!?! Unfortunately al lot of people will now fall for this scam and waste their money. I’m going to throw away what’s left of my pills.

    I totally agree with you ladies iv been using slimbetti active extreme for a month and haven’t seen a change yet,i mean from what they say about it I’m afraid so many people are falling for it I’m really disappointed!

  • Mandy

    I ordered a one month supply only to find they sent me a three months supply after using the product for two weeks realised i am still feeling hungry, my appetite not suppressed as claimed. They even indicate the weight loss may be so extreme that dosage must be decreased, that the line i fell for and halo not working at all.

    Thank you ladies,I also fell for the line that the weight loss may be so extreme that I might have to reduce the dosage,I was just about to go and buy the active xtreme,a big thank you to you ladies once again

    It popped up on my Facebook feed today. Link is above. Sounded too good to be true so I thought I’d check it out. The rule still applies… if it sounds too good, it is.

    Got phoned and was told of product and how amazing it was. I was using the tablets as prescribed and was feeling ill overheating internally and joints started getting sore. I stopped taking product and it took 2 weeks before my body started feeling right. Product is a scam I didn’t lose 1st. Just felt sick about what it was doing internally
