What is Sensolin?
Sensolin is an all-natural blood sugar and weight loss support supplement that claims to be able to provide appetite-suppressant effects in order to help control and manage your diet and weight.
It is billed as an effective alternative to synthetic ingredient-filled supplements that might have dangerous or uncomfortable side effects, and the company behind Sensolin has gone to great lengths to illustrate this difference very clearly.
The main product website claims that Sensolin is able to provide support that may allow you to:
- Eliminate Crashes After Eating
- Control Insatiable Hunger and Cravings For Sugars and Carbs
- Increase Your Ability To Lose Stubborn Body Fat (Especially In The Midsection)
- Increase Mental Focus
- Control Insulin Resistance
Obviously, for those who suffer from ailments or symptoms such as uncontrollable cravings, Insulin resistance, or high blood sugar, this supplement could represent a fantastic product that could really do a lot of good for a lot of people.
Before we know for sure that it can, however, we need to know more about the product and it’s ingredients, as well as more about the manufacturers themselves. Let’s take a look at the latter now by taking a close-up look at the company behind Sensolin.
Who Makes Sensolin?
Sensolin is manufactured by Truth Nutriceuticals, a company which itself seems to be owned by Melbourne Beach, Florida-based company The Better Foundation LLC. The company offers several other types of supplements on it’s main website, and from the look of things, they’ve been around at least since August of 2016.
A quick look around the website seemingly reveals a few things about the company. For one, they directly state that “there is zero hype in the content you’ll review on our site”, and they mean it.
Unlike quite a few companies in the supplement industry, there doesn’t seem to be an array of potentially misleading or overtly bold claims about the products effectiveness, nor is there any sense that the company is trying to reel you in for a quick buck.
Of course, none of that really matters at all if the product itself doesn’t end up working for you. So, how exactly is Sensolin supposed to help you achieve your blood sugar and weight loss goals? And how effective are the ingredients? Let’s take a look at these key areas next.
How Is Sensolin Supposed To Work?
According to the manufacturer, Sensolin can be effective for everyday usage. The website states that there isn’t any need to cycle the product periodically, as you would do with certain other types of medications and supplements when their effectiveness wears off. The company also claims that there are no side effects that come along with regular usage of the supplement.
The website states that Sensolin is best taken with your two main meals, equating to 3 pills per meal. Up to 9 pills may be taken each day to achieve “optimal performance”, however.
What Ingredients Does Sensolin Have?
Sensolin is fairly unique in that it only includes 3 ingredients in its formula - some similar products tend to have a lengthier list in many cases. One of the company’s chief claims is that they use no synthetic ingredients or “fillers” of any kind. The company asserts that they used “decades of independent research” as a guide when developing their formulation, which includes the following ingredients:
- Berberine HCL
- Chromium Picolinate
- Ceylon Cinnamon Oil
Let’s take a closer look at each of these, starting with Berberine HCL.
Berberine HCL: According to WebMD, Berberine is a chemical that can be commonly found in several plants including European barberry, goldenseal, goldthread, Oregon grape, phellodendron, and tree tumeric. The substance has been used in traditional medicine for many years, and WebMD’s information page for the chemical states that Beberine has shown to be “possibly effective” for reducing blood sugar levels in patients with diabetes.
Earlier research is also listed, showing that the substance seems to help individuals lose about 5 pounds after taking it for 12 weeks.
Chromium Picolinate: Chromium is a mineral that is known as an “essential trace element”, due to it’s importance (in small amounts) to human health. It appears that Chromium might be effective for treating diabetes, again helping to lower blood sugar levels in the body. WebMD states, however, that the jury is still out on the minerals potential benefits for those suffering from obesity.
For instance, the site states that while some limited research suggests that chromium might improve weight loss for some, the amount of said weight loss is probably “not clinically significant”.
Ceylon Cinnamon Oil: This oil comes from a tree, the bark of which has many medicinal properties. According to WebMD, however, there is insufficient clinical evidence to show whether or not this oil is effective for reducing blood sugar levels in the body.
So, bringing this all together, the science is fairly clear on the first two ingredients. Both have been shown to be at least somewhat effective for treating the effects of diabetes and obesity in adults. The third ingredient is a bit more inconsistent in terms of verifiable claims, but at worst, there don’t seem to be any potential pitfalls to it’s inclusion in the formula.
Speaking of which; do any of these three ingredients come with the potential for hazardous side effects? Let’s find out.
Any Possible Side Effects With Sensolin?
The good news here is, since there are only three ingredients included in Sensolin’s formula, and each one is all-natural, there aren’t many potential side effects to watch out for.
For Berberine, WebMD states that women who are breastfeeding or pregnant should not use the supplement. It also states that newborns are susceptible to the chemical, and that it should not be given to them either.
Finally, because Berberine can lower blood sugar levels, anyone suffering from diabetes should be careful not to lower their blood sugar to dangerous lows accidentally, in conjunction with another medication.
As for Chromium, it appears that there are few situations where side effects may occur. Again, it is stated that diabetics need to exert caution when taking supplements with this substance in it while also on other medications to control blood sugar levels.
Finally, Ceylon Cinnamon Oil seems to be just about as safe as the variants of cinnamon found in food. However, according to WebMD, it can sometimes cause side effects such as diarrhea, vomiting, dizziness, drowsiness, and others.
It is not clear whether any of these side effects would effectively translate over to Sensoline, but during our research, we were unable to find many reports of users experiencing negative side effects at all, outside of the odd mild upset stomach.

What Are Other Consumers Saying About Sensolin?
Sensolin is a relatively new product, and as such, there aren’t a tremendous number of user reviews out there in the wild just yet. That being said, we were able to find a number of reviews on the company’s main website, as well as on Amazon.com.
These reviews were fairly wildly diversified, with some giving glowing remarks about the supplements effectiveness and others claiming that it did nothing at all.
This is obviously a fairly common phenomenon with just about anything sold online, so feel free to take these limited reviews with a grain of salt. Overall, it seems like there are quite a few vocal, happy users of Sensolin online, which at this early stage is not something many of the supplements competitors can say they enjoy as well.
The Bottom Line: How Effective Is Sensolin?
If we’re being frank, there’s a lot to like about Sensolin, and to a greater extent, its manufacturer. The straightforward, non-used car salesman approach to the tone and feel of the marketing materials goes a long way to build trust in the brand, and the lack of shady business tactics like autoship programs and “proprietary formulas” only serves to bolster our confidence.
The ingredients within Sensolin (and the clinical data we found for each of them) also gives us reason to suggest that the taking the supplement might indeed produce some positive effects with respect to lowering your blood sugar, as well as some positive momentum with weight loss.
That being said, at least one of the ingredients found in the formula (Ceylon Cinnamon Oil) had insufficient evidence to prove that it was truly effective for managing blood sugar levels.
Overall, it’s safe to say that Sensolin is one of the more straightforward, reputable products out there in the wide world of supplements, and it’s also safe to say that Sensolin is likely to be worth a try if you think it might be able to help you in any way.
We feel that the company’s upfront attitude and no questions asked 60-day return policy is enough to warrant giving the product a chance with confidence, and we feel that the clear pride and effort put into the formulation itself, the branding, and the company culture in general is a welcome change of pace from the status quo.

Works for me
I was pleased after three months. My A1C level went down from 7.2 to 6.2. I am going to order more for three more months supply. I have been fighting with weight gain and high sugar levels for a couple of years. I was not on board at first, but the results tell the story. No side effects noticed.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
