About BikiniBOD

Made for women, by women, BikiniBOD is an all-natural weight loss supplement that curbs cravings, burns more fat and calories, and helps you achieve your ideal figure. How?

By using 100% vegan, plant-derived ingredients to suppress appetite, boost metabolism and block the formation of new fat, reduce bloating, and give you glowing skin and hair.

All you have to do is take one capsule of BikiniBOD 15-30 minutes prior to your first meal, and then another 5-6 hours later if necessary! Which is why the company calls BikiniBOD “the ultimate beauty body formula.”

Every day, it seems like another weight loss supplement makes its way to market, promising big results using all-natural ingredients. But as you might already know, most of these fail to live up to customers’ expectations.

Will you experience the same with BikiniBOD, or is it really the breakthrough the company claims? We’ll answer all your important questions by starting with BikiniBOD’s most important aspect: its ingredients.

Will BikiniBOD’s Ingredients Help You Lose Weight?

BikiniBOD’s manufacturer didn’t provide a product label on their website, but they did provide a list of ingredients. These include:

Bitter orange extract, garcinia cambogia, yohimbe bark extract, uva ursi, raspberry ketone, biotin, caffeine, superfruit extract, green coffee bean extract, green tea

Other than the fact that they’re included in BikiniBOD, what do all these ingredients have in common? There’s insufficient clinical evidence showing that any of them can provide any measurable weight loss benefits, or provide any of the other claims made by BikiniBOD’s manufacturer.

In fact, garcinia cambogia, raspberry ketone, and green coffee bean are so popular in weight loss supplements—but consistently fail to provide any results—that we wrote in-depth exposés about them to warn consumers before they spend their hard-earned money.

But consider this: Even if BikiniBOD’s ingredients were clinically proven to provide some kind of weight loss benefits, the company doesn’t provide a label, so there’s no way to know how much of each the supplement contains—or whether or not this would be enough to provide results in the first place.

Our opinion? If BikiniBOD’s ingredients work at all, they won’t provide you with any additional weight loss, outside of eating right and exercising regularly.

If BikiniBOD’s ingredients don’t help though, will they hurt?

Potential BikiniBOD Side Effects

According to the BikiniBOD FAQ, their caffeine content is “about equal to that of a medium cup of premium roasted coffee.” As such, unless you’re especially sensitive to caffeine, this alone shouldn’t cause any concern.

However, when you combine this caffeine with bitter orange, you may have some potentially severe side effects on your hands. Why?

WebMD claims that, “Bitter orange is possibly unsafe when taken as a supplement for a medical purpose such as weight loss. Bitter orange, particularly when taken with stimulants such as caffeine or caffeine-containing herbs, increases the risk for high blood pressure, fainting, heart attack, stroke, and other severe side effects.”

Similarly, yohimbe, when “taken by mouth, is possibly unsafe. Yohimbe has been linked to reports of severe side effects including irregular or rapid heart beat, kidney failure, seizure, heart attack, and others.”

Perhaps this is why the company states that you should not exceed three capsules of BikiniBOD per day.

Granted, this is all our opinion, although it’s rooted in clinical science. But from a real-world perspective, are BikiniBOD’s customers getting results?

Are BikiniBOD’s Customers Experiencing Positive Results?

Taking a look at the testimonials and before/after pictures on the BikiniBOD website, you might think it’s a sure thing that you’ll lose weight with the supplement. But what are customers saying elsewhere online?

BikiniBOD had a 4.4-star rating on Amazon at the time of our research, based on 32 customer reviews. There, common compliments cited effective appetite suppression and boosted energy, but without any jitteriness.

On the other hand, the most common complaint seemed to revolve around failure to work as advertised. Some also experienced jitteriness from BikiniBOD’s stimulants.

Outside of Amazon, there weren’t any online reviews for BikiniBOD at the time of our research. But whether you buy through Amazon or directly through the company, how much will you pay for BikiniBOD?

BikiniBOD’s Price & Refund Policy

While there are a variety of different packages you can purchase (e.g. that also include shirts, water bottles, and more), a standalone 60-count bottle of BikiniBOD supplement will cost you $49.99.

If ordered directly through the company, all US orders include free shipping and come with a 30-day no-questions-asked refund policy.

Pro tip: Keep in mind that refunds are not available for international orders, apparel, or accessories.

If you’d like to request a refund, your only option is to send an email to service@bikinibod.com (no phone number was listed at the time of our research).

Now, before we wrap things up, you may have noticed that BikiniBOD.com is a Doctor Trusted website. What exactly does this mean?

Why is BikiniBOD.com a Doctor Trusted Website?

DoctorTrusted.org is an independent company that utilizes a network of real doctors to “save consumers from internet fraud and unethical practices in the health and fitness e-commerce industry.” How do they do this?

We won’t cover everything here, although most of their focus seems to be on a company’s business practices (e.g. offering fair return policies, displaying contact information, etc. – for in-depth information, be sure to read their Code of Conduct page).

But when it comes to the efficacy of a company’s products, Doctor Trusted only focuses on their claims that “set reasonable and realistic expectations for the consumer,” which must be “reasonable and based on science or evidence of traditional use.”

In other words, Doctor Trusted didn’t verify that the ingredients found in BikiniBOD will actually work as advertised—only that there is some science showing the advertised effects could take place, regardless of whether this science took place in a non-peer reviewed study or a Petri dish. Or, it could simply be that they’ve been used in traditional “medicine” at some point.

Bottom line? Just because BikiniBOD is Doctor Approved, this doesn’t mean that you’ll lose any weight using it, or that you won’t experience any unwanted side effects.

Should You Buy BikiniBOD To Help You Lose Weight?

We’ll start off by stating that as a company, BikiniBOD seems to stand behind their supplement with a 30-day refund policy, so you can always return it if you’re not satisfied.

Will this be you? When it comes down to it, this all depends on your expectations.

Do you think that BikiniBOD will directly cause you to lose weight, above and beyond dieting and working out? If so, you’ll probably end up being disappointed.

On the other hand, are you expecting BikiniBOD to help give you some extra energy at the gym, which could improve your workout results? If this is the case, then BikiniBOD might end up being worthwhile.

In fact, you can see this play out in BikiniBOD’s Amazon reviews, where very few women actually referenced losing weight—even among those who rated the supplement five stars. And even among those who did claim to lose weight, it was almost always just a couple pounds, which could easily be attributed to water weight.

Did you decide to give BikiniBOD a try? If so, did you start shedding pounds immediately, or did you only experience an increase in energy? Whatever it was, tell us about it by writing a review below!
