The official website of Slim Gum claims that it is the only patented chewing gum in the entire world that has been created for the promotion of weight loss for dieters. This product is meant for individuals who are tired of trying diet pills and are looking for another solution that will provide them with effective results.
What is Slim Gum?
This is a sugar free peppermint gum and is meant to combine fresher breath with a weight loss solution. It is manufactured by a company that is relatively well known and that has a solid reputation, called L.A. Muscle. The product is sold from its official website, as well as from a few online marketplaces and a small number of drugstores in England.
The manufacturer was first created in 1999 and has been producing a number of different supplements, ever since. Though its primary focus is sports supplements, it also has a few others. At the time of the writing of this review, no reports of scam or rip off products from L.A. Muscle could be found.
What Do Customers Say?
Customer reviews have said that Slim Gum has a very pleasant flavor. It is somewhat unique from other forms of chewing gum
products, as it has two sides. One side is green colored and has a rougher texture than the non-colored side.
Slim Gum Ingredients
According to the directions from the manufacturer, four pieces of gum should be chewed every day ahead of having meals or any snacks. The purpose is to help to keep hunger under control. Every package of Slim Gum contains 10 pieces. This means that one package will last for two and a half days if the directions are followed. A box of the product contains 12 packages, which means that one box will last for 25 days.
The ingredients in Slim Gum are not very different from those that are often seen in common over the counter diet pills. These include green coffee bean extract, chromium, L-carnitine, green tea extract, biotin, and thiamine. It is clear that this product is created primarily as a stimulant. Though these can help to cause a temporary boost to the metabolism, stimulants of this nature are also connected with a number of different uncomfortable side effects, and they are not appropriate for everyone. Potential side effects connected with stimulants include headache, jitteriness, nervousness, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, insomnia, and others.
It is highly recommended that a doctor be consulted before considering the use of this product.
November 2021 Update
Slim Gum reached its peak popularity shortly after its launch, and then faced intense scrutiny and controversy. By 2012, the UK advertising watchdog had ruled against manufacturer LA Muscle’s TV campaign advertising the product. It stated that even if some of the claims met the approval of the European Food Safety Authority
(EFSA), there were other claims – particularly those linking metabolism boosting to biotin consumption – that were confusing and misleading, particularly when taking the unclear dosing instructions into consideration.
At the time of this update, the LA Muscle website no longer listed the product. Third party retailers and marketplaces were also out of stock for this product, suggesting that it has been discontinued. What initially appeared to be an interesting but gimmicky fad product seems to have proven itself to be just that.
