Review Summary
Solo Slim® is a weight loss formulation designed to “help individuals lose weight and put ease into slimming down.” The product claims to “begin working almost immediately after you begin taking it.” This manufacturer asserts that its supplement boosts metabolism, curbs cravings, and allows consumers to continue “eating the foods you love.” Weight loss with this product is said to require “no effort, no hassles, and no fuss -- just an easy way to shed those unwanted pounds.”

When phrases like “no effort” and “easy way” are mentioned in connection with a weight loss product, it immediately raises a red flag for us. Long-term weight loss and maintenance is usually an ongoing process, and generally involves behavioral changes that must be followed for a lifetime. While some weight loss approaches are certainly easier than others, we do not feel that any credible weight loss plan involves “no effort.” Moreover, we feel that some of this product’s ingredients may provide questionable effectiveness and undesirable effects. We will analyze this product for its ability to assist overweight consumers in permanently shedding unhealthy excess weight.

Ingredients at a Glance
This formulation may contain some of the following ingredients: Konjac Glucomannan, Lotus Leaf Flavonoids & Alkaloids, Citrus Aurantium Synephrine, Hawthorne Hyperosides and L-Carnitine Tartrate.

Ingredients in Focus
The ingredient Citrus Aurantium Synephrine, a form of Bitter Orange, is of concern to us due to its potential blood pressure-raising effect. It has been said that most forms of this ingredient contain an isomer called Phenylephrine, otherwise known as the ‘m’ form of Synephrine Phenylephrine, which apparently is often used in nasal decongestants, is said to narrow blood vessels and raise blood pressure. We prefer the patented Advantra-Z® version of Bitter Orange, which apparently was found not to contain Phenylephrine.

One expert stated, “Because Advantra Z® contains only the “p” form of Synephrine, manufacturers of diet and fitness products can assure consumers that their products incorporate a holistic bitter orange extract that contains a more stable and safe form of Synephrine.” Be advised, the ingredient Hawthorne reportedly may “increase the force and decrease the rate of heartbeats.” According to one expert, this may worsen heart conditions. Finally, while the appetite suppressant Glucomannan may be quite helpful in producing a fiber-based feeling of satiety, we feel that appetite suppressants that address the brain are more effective.

Diet Lifestyle
Unfortunately, this manufacturer seems to insist on a “quick and easy” marketing angle, and therefore makes no mention of diet or exercise. We believe it is important that consumers be aware of the need for ongoing healthy diet and exercise for long-term results. We consider it somewhat irresponsible for manufacturers to claim that weight loss does not require a conscious effort. We think is especially important for consumers to be prepared to keep the weight off through permanent behavior changes.

Positives
• Does not contain Caffeine
• Is “Ephemeral Quadra-Free”


Negatives
• Does not seem to include the most optimized form of Bitter Orange
• Could contain a more powerful appetite suppressant
• Claims of “effortless” weight loss seem exaggerated


Final Thoughts
In our opinion, this product seems to use exaggerated claims in combination with somewhat substandard ingredients. We believe that for a dieter to get the maximum advantage, a potent metabolism booster and appetite suppressant are required.

As previously stated, we have heard positive reports about the patented version of Bitter Orange, Advantra-Z®. This ingredient has demonstrated an ability to burn calories safely and effectively. Advantra-Z® is said to be especially compatible with Hoodia Gordonii, an appetite suppressant that sends a message of satiety to the hypothalamus of the brain.
