About Slimfy

By HighYa Research Team
Published on: Aug 28, 2014

Slimfy manufactures a line of weight loss products that promise to use a “breakthrough” formula of organic ingredients to help you lose weight faster and more effectively. And by “confusing your body’s natural responses,” we’re told their supplements can also help you avoid building a tolerance to the ingredients.

How’s it work? According to Slimfy, you’ll take each of their three Stage supplements for 30 days, which, along with exercise and a healthy diet, can help you achieve your weight loss goals faster and easier.

But hold on: The reality is that natural weight loss supplements are a dime a dozen nowadays, and if you’ve spent any time researching them you can become numb to all the hype and overblown claims. But when it comes to Slimfy, do these same points apply, or is it really an “elite weight loss program?”

Since writing our original review, Slimfy’s CEO reached out and provided us with additional insight and a better understanding into their supplement, their business model, and much more. Here’s what we learned:

What Happens During Each Slimfy Stage?

Overall, the Slimfy Progressive Weight Loss System works over three stages:

Stage 1: Detox & Body Cleanse

Here, you’ll kick things off by using the supplement’s detoxifying and fat-burning agents to cleanse your liver and urinary tract. We’re told these ingredients will also improve your mood and suppress your appetite while speeding up the weight loss process over the next two stages.

Stage 2: Enhanced Weight Loss

Next, Stage 2’s fat burning and fat blocking ingredients will continue suppressing your appetite for help keeping the weight off. Specifically, the company tells us this is “one of the most potent and effective natural weight loss products available on the market today.”

Stage 3: Weight Loss Maintenance

After losing weight, you’ll want to maintain your results with Stage 3’s ingredients, which will continue suppressing your appetite and progressively helping you reach your goals. According to the company, Stage 3’s results are “proven by international studies.”

Alright, we’ve talked about what the manufacturer promises to deliver with the Slimfy 3-stage weight loss supplement program. But, exactly which ingredients do they use? Based on the clinical evidence, can you realistically expect to experience any of these benefits?

What Ingredients Does Slimfy Contain? Are They Effective?

Note: Before diving in, it’s important to mention that all of Slimfy’s ingredients are part of proprietary blends. As such, no individual dosages were listed for their ingredients on the company’s website when writing our review.

With this in mind, here’s what we’re told is contained in each of Slimfy’s weight loss supplements:

  • Stage I: Uses green coffee bean extract, hydrangea, milk thistle, organic ginger, and saffron extract to provide general detoxification, increase metabolism, support digestive function, improve mood, and more.
  • Stage II: Uses green coffee bean extract, raspberry ketone extract, pure trans – resveratrol, organic maqui berry, CoQ10, and saffron extract to accelerate fat burn, suppress appetite, increase energy and libido, boost motivation, and more.
  • Stage III: Uses organic African mango extract, green tea extract, Caralluma Fimbriata, CoQ10, and lychee extract to increase metabolism, block fat, control cholesterol levels, and more.

According to their box insert, you’ll take 1 tablet of Slimfy twice daily with a full glass of water, approximately 20-30 minutes before your two largest meals of the day. But even if you follow their directions to the letter, will these ingredients help you lose weight?

Overall, according to WebMD’s summarization for each of the above ingredients, we’re told there is insufficient clinical evidence showing that they can reliably provide weight loss results in humans.

Now, this isn’t to say there isn’t evidence that these ingredients won’t provide any benefits. For example, WebMD indicates:

  • Milk thistle may help decrease total blood sugar and cholesterol, and (when used consistently for four weeks and combined with several other ingredients) may also help reduce heartburn.
  • Ginger may help reduce nausea and osteoarthritis-related pain.
  • Saffron has been shown to improve symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.
  • CoQ10 may address age-related vision loss, congestive heart failure, diabetic nerve damage, high blood pressure, prevent heart attack and more.

Tom tells us that not all of Slimfy’s ingredients are intended for weight loss; for example, some are intended to improve mood, others are related to appetite suppression, and so forth. Relying again on WebMD’s summarization of the available clinical evidence, they don’t seem to support these benefits, either.

But, what about all the clinical references on Slimfy’s Research page?

The Difference Between Clinically Studied & Clinically Proven

We’re not going to bore you to tears in this section, but we feel it’s necessary to quickly make an important distinction here between clinically studied and clinically proven. Why? Because in addition to what’s found on Slimfy’s Research page, the company’s CEO also sent us a list of 20-something studies to support the claims for many of their ingredients, so it’s something that needs to be addressed.

In a nutshell, clinically studied means what it says; that something was studied in a clinical setting. However, this term doesn’t necessarily reference the outcome of the study (for example, whether or not a supplement was shown to be effective).

Clinically proven, on the other hand, indicates that there is a large body of evidence—hundreds, or perhaps even thousands, of studies reflecting similar outcomes—showing that something is effective, based on repeatable results.

Here’s the point:

To this extent, yes; many of the citations referenced on Slimfy’s Research page, as well as the studies sent to us by the company’s CEO (or even ones you’ll find through a quick online search), may indicate a positive correlation between some of its ingredients and weight loss/mood/appetite suppression.

However, when answering the question, “Is this ingredient likely to help me lose weight?” one, two, or even a handful of studies doesn’t necessarily provide enough data to draw a conclusion. Instead, this takes a whole body of evidence; which is precisely what WebMD looks at when indicating if a supplement ingredient is “effective,” “possibly effective,” “possibly ineffective,” and so forth.

From this perspective, WebMD indicates that many of these ingredients don’t have the necessary clinical support to label them as effective (or possibly effective) for weight loss.

For a much deeper dive into this topic, be sure to read Think That Clinical Study Is Legit?

How Much Does Slimfy’s 3-Stage Weight Loss Program Cost?

According to Tom, Slimfy’s supplements are currently priced as follows:

  • Single Bottle: $77.60 per bottle
  • Buy 2, Get 1 Free: $51.73 per bottle (total $155.20)
  • Buy 3, Get 3 Free: $38.80 per bottle (total $232.80)

Important note: These prices are based on special offers and promotions available through different marketing campaigns, which are subject to change and do not necessarily reflect what’s shown on Slimfy’s website. In addition, you can gain access to additional specials (such as free standard international shipping, or $25 off express international shipping) by signing up to receive Slimfy promotions by entering your email address.

During checkout, the Slimfy website will automatically check a box for shipping protection, which includes benefits like product replacement if lost, expedited same-day shipping, premium "Indestructo" shipping box, shipping insurance, environmentally friendly packaging, and more), which comes with a $2.99 additional charge. If you’re not interested in these benefits, be sure to unclick this box.

Slimfy is also available through Amazon.com.

If purchased directly through the company, all unopened bottles of Slimfy come with a 90-day refund policy, less S&H charges. According to Tom, most of their customers are located overseas, and they cover more than 50% of the high cost of shipping. As such, he notes that customers will still come out ahead from a S&H perspective when processing a refund.

In order to request one, Slimfy’s customer support can be reached at (855)-5-SLIMFY (+1 (305) 587-2230 for international customers) or support@slimfy.com.

What Are Customers Saying In Their Slimfy Reviews?

Since writing our original review, 9 HighYa readers have provided feedback about their experiences with Slimfy, giving the company an average rating of 1.4 stars. What are they saying?

Overall, while one customer claimed to have had a positive experience, the most common complaints seem to revolve around no results, high prices, being sent additional supplements without ordering them, and difficulty obtaining refunds.

However, on Amazon, Slimfy’s entire 3-Stage system had an average rating of 3.5 stars at the time of our research, based on 90 customer reviews. There, most compliments appeared to reference effective results (even for those who couldn’t lose weight using other methods) and improved mood. On the other hand, as is common with most nutritional supplements (not Slimfy, specifically), the most common complaint was the failure to achieve results.

Bottom Line: Will Slimfy’s 3-Stage Supplements Help You Lose Weight?

Slimfy’s CEO was gracious to take the time and explain all the details of his company’s supplements and business model, so we’d like to thank him for helping us—and HighYa’s readers!—get a much better idea of what their supplements are all about. In our experience, actions like these speak volumes about a company’s underlying ethics, so we have no doubt that Slimfy is a legitimate company with customer satisfaction at the top of their mind.

With this said, while you might have a great customer experience with Slimfy, does this mean that you’ll achieve any meaningful weight loss results from their supplements? While we didn’t test their products firsthand, based on the available body of clinical evidence for each of their ingredients, as summarized by WebMD, there doesn’t appear to be a strong link.

On top of this, most physicians and fitness professionals recommend that eating a sensible diet and exercising regularly are the only tried-and-true methods of losing weight and keeping it off. And from this perspective (again, based on the available clinical evidence), it’s unclear just how much Slimfy’s ingredients will boost your results.

Everyone’s body works differently though, so it could be the case that the ingredients found in Slimfy’s supplements will provide you with what you need to achieve success in your weight loss journey (whatever that means for you). If not, the company seems to stand by their product with a 90-day refund policy.

Did you try Slimfy’s supplements? Just one, or the entire 3-Stage system? Did you experience results? Do you feel it provided a solid value? Whatever happened, talk about your experience in your review below!

    This is very surprising

    I'm very surprised with all previous reviewers saying it's a scam. I understand that people who are satisfied with some products almost never take additional step and leave positive reviews but let's be serious. I'm an actual Slimfy's customer and I saw these posts and decided to get involved. I shared my success with my two sisters and they are both using Slimfy now, also with great results.

    One thing that could make some people confused is a lack of the initial information from Slimfy after they deliver their products. You have to reach out to them, call or email, and that's another hiccup on their end, I didn't know that their customer support is opened only Mon - Fri between 9.00 - 17.00. I was trying to call them on Saturdays and Sundays, this didn't work. Eventually when I was able to get their support on the phone I was amazed how kind and thoughtful these people are. Honestly I had a chance to deal with many US companies in the past (I work for American company in Geneva), But these guys are super helpful. And some of them are even nutrition experts. I'm till this day emailing with couple of them getting valuable tips and guidance.

    Concluding I just want you to know, that this product in fact worked for me and any confusion or concerns were resolved right after I spoke with the customer support. By the way, another tricky part was to find the international calling number, for some reason they list only Domestic US Toll Free, the international number is +1 305 587 2230.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    This product is Amazing.

    I have a very busy life with a full time job and 2 kids to take care of and this fit's right into my routine. Also, the customer service and nutritional coaches that Slimfy has on staff are so nice and made it easy for me to lose weight by providing me with all the necessary tools and a nutritional program that works.

    I am looking forward to losing more weight with this product and doing business with them. 10 lbs down in just 2 weeks. I've seen great results so far!

    I tried many different products all which were all rubbish. 3 months ago I bought my first Slimfy (red, green and blue). At first, I was taking it wrong, started with two tablets of two different colors the same day, I wasn't sure if that correct so I check the pamphlet included and realized I was doing it wrong. Just to double check I called them, spoke with one of their representatives who explained to me the entire process, as well as emailed me very useful nutritional tips.

    I called them few more times and every time my experience was beyond exceptional. With Slimfy and minor adjustment to my eating habits I was able to drop major part of my weight, the weight I was trying to lose for years. A few days ago, I ordered another set of the 3. (this time I called and asked to combine green one and 2 blue). It wasn't a problem at all.

    Amazing product, Wonderful Experience!

    I just recently finished all three stages of Slimfy and I can tell you my experience was amazing! Of course, I had to give up some bad eating habits and add more physical activity to my daily routine but at least I managed to get back to my normal weight.

    The coaching service which was provided free of charge by the company was helpful as well. You learn something new every time you talk to one of their nutrition specialists. It was great it was included for free! Who does it nowadays? A+

    Communication with the company was really easy for me - I've noticed there is no insane directory and pressing this or that button to dig into the menu - you just get connected right away. I liked it!

    I will definitely buy their products again for the quality and the outstanding support!

    I have recently started the 3 months program with Slimfy, and I am extremely satisfied with the results. After the first week, I lost 3 kg and the difference could be already noticed. I surely see the weight goal will be achieved sooner than the end of the 3 months.

    I've been using Slimfy supplements for awhile now for my weight management. This is by bar one of the best companies I've ever dealt with. The quality of supplements is great - non-GMO, vegetarian, made with organic ingredients. No delays in my monthly shipments, which makes it easy to follow the regiment. I never used their customer service yet since there were no issues for me. Thank you Slimfy!

    It worked for me.

    I ordered Slimfy few weeks ago via their website, and their website seemed complicated a little to me but I still managed to place an order.

    The product arrived at my door in 2 business days as promised. I started taking it as instructed twice a day 20-30 min before the meal.

    Their nutrition coach explained to me the whole routine, which is by the way is amazing service, no one else in my past experience with other products provided nutrition coach after you purchase a product.

    In the first two weeks I haven't experienced much of weight loss, but it did curb my appetite , improved my mood and energy thought the day. At the end of first stage almost at the start of stage two, that's when I and people surrounding me started noticing the difference.

    Right now I am repeating the cycle second time, I am almost reaching my weight loss goal and I am very excited and most important I am proud of my self making this big change in my life.

    One concern with this product, that it is kinda expensive, but it did worked for me. I am rating this 4 stars only because of the price of this product, the rest I would rate it 5.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    • By Valerie E.,

    • Verified Reviewer

    My friend (who works as a fitness trainer) recommended Slimfy to me. For three months of taking the capsules, I shed 4 kg. After the break, I will start the next course. The reaction from my body was most encouraging. Previously, until the end of the working day, I was hardly able to make it to the end each day - I was always fatigued and suffered from headaches. Now I am cheerful, optimistic, and happy during the day!

    Where is my Refund?

    • By Angea,
    • Kenya,
    • Jul 9, 2015

    The form I used to order the product made no mention of a secondary charge for the Stage II bottle either. Someone had rang saying my account would be debited back but now customer service has gone quiet. Have received the bottles alright (did not want the second one as I am not over weight or anything. I just needed a bit of help over and above my exercise and good eating regime). The second bottle is forced on you and clearly the refund takes forever to be made. Buyer beware. Would not recommend for the price. Time will tell of effectiveness.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
