About SlimXo Clitramine
SlimXo Clitramine is claimed to be a breakthrough, scientifically formulated weight loss supplement that can help overweight and obese people lose up to 3X more weight than dieting and exercise alone, by binding to soluble and insoluble fat during digestion and flushing it out.
According to the manufacturer, SlimXo Clitramine’s exclusive formula helps suppress your appetite, reduce cravings for calorie-deficient foods, increase your energy, reduce your stress, and strip away the pounds, even if you hate exercise, without altering your daily routine. Because of this, SlimXo Clitramine calls itself “the most effective and powerful weight loss formula on the market.”
SlimXo Clitramine Ingredients
In order to accomplish this, SlimXo Clitramine is claimed to include the following ingredients:
- Gum Acacia – Contains glycoproteins and polyscaccharides that may help lose weight.
- Cactus Root – High in vitamin C and other antioxidants, which may help reduce aging while losing weight.
- Trigonella – Contains natural proteins that could help boost your body’s weight loss.
SlimXo Clitramine claims to have appeared on Dr. Oz, Daily Mail, and BBC, and to be clinically proven without any known side effects.
It can be devastating to work hard, eat right, and exercising regularly, only to find that you’re not losing weight, despite your best effort. But can SlimXo Clitramine provide you with the weight loss boost you need? Consider the following:
Will the Real Clitramine Please Stand Up?
First and foremost, keep in mind that the primary compound in this supplement is named Litramine, not Clitramine. Litramine is the supplement referenced on Dr. Oz’s May 7, 2014 episode titled “Flush Fat Fast,” although both appear to be trademarked, but there’s not any information provided on the SlimXo website that would indicate how Clitramine is different than Litramine.
Important Missing Information on the SlimXo Clitramine Website
In addition to not providing any information about it’s differences with other Litramine supplements, the SlimXo Clitramine website also doesn’t provide a product label, so there’s no way for you to know if the listed ingredients are all the supplement contains, or the amount of each of these ingredients it contains.
With this said, Dr. Oz recommended looking for “100% pure” on the label, and that you should take a total of 3 grams per day (1g after each meal). In reference to this, the SlimXo website indicates that it’s “100% natural” but not “100% pure,” and doesn’t let us know how much each dose contains. Interestingly, there are 60 capsules of Clitramine in a bottle claimed to last 30 days, so it would seem SlimXo is not following Dr. Oz’s recommendations.
The Dr. Oz Effect
Speaking of Dr. Oz, the number of Litramine supplements available on the market has exploded since his show aired in May, which has led to something that’s become known as the Dr. Oz Effect.
With this said, SlimXo Clitramine’s URL was registered in October 2014, which might mean that the manufacturer is simply jumping on the bandwagon. We’ll talk more about this in a moment.
Clinical Evidence for SlimXo Clitramine’s Claims
Product labels, dosing instructions, and celebrity endorsements aside, the only clinical evidence available online for Litramine appears to center around a 2012 German study that concluded, “Compared with placebo, IQ [Litramine] also showed significantly greater reduction in BMI, body fat composition, and waist circumference. IQ [Litramine] was well tolerated with no adverse reactions reported.”
On Dr. Oz’s show he noted that the study, which was published in the journal Obesity, claimed that over the course of 12 weeks, patients taking Litramine lost about ½ of a pound more per week, or about 5.3 pounds more over the course of the study.
Keep in mind, however, that this is the only clinical study available for Litramine, and doesn’t reference SlimXo Clitramine’s formulation. On top of this, it also doesn’t back up the manufacturer’s claim that SlimXo Clitramine can help you lose 3X more weight.
Finally, although “Dr. Richard Pletcher” claims on the supplement’s website that his patients lost an average of 5 to 8 pounds per week using SlimXo Clitramine, it’s clear that, based on the clinical results above, these individuals were using Clitramine as part of a diet and exercise program. However, there’s no indication as to what portion of their weight loss was attributed to the supplement, and how much was attributed to healthy lifestyle habits.
SlimXo Clitramine’s Selling Tactics
Next, the SlimXo Clitramine website uses what we here at HighYa refer to as the “classic” weight loss website format, which is something we discussed extensively in our How Weight Loss Ads Convince You to Buy article. This includes an image of an attractive model in the upper left hand corner that makes you think, “I want to look like that.” Then, you’ll read that, “Due to recently being featured on T.V. we cannot guarantee supply. As of [X Date] we currently have product IN STOCK and READY to ship within 24 hours of purchase,” making you feel a sense of urgency.
Finally, the company relieves this urgency by showing you how to get your own supply (e.g. convincing you to sign up for their trial). In other words, considering the lack of tangible information provided by the manufacturer, it appears the SlimXo Clitramine website is designed more to trigger emotion than it is to inform.
SlimXo Clitramine Pricing & Refund Policy
SlimXo Clitramine is only available via a 14-day for $4.95, which will send you a 30-day supply (60 capsules).
If you don’t cancel your trial and send the bottle back to the manufacturer within 14 days, you’ll be charged $79.97 for your original bottle, and will continue receiving a fresh bottle of SlimXo Clitramine every 30 days as part of the company’s autoship program. Each of these times, your credit card will be charged $79.97 until you call to cancel.
In order to cancel your trial, you’ll need to contact customer service at (888) 297-0964.
Important note: In our informed opinion, it’s usually best to stay away from products offered only through free trials and subsequent autoship programs, which is something we outlined in our What is an Autoship Program? article.
Can SlimXo Clitramine Help You Lose Stubborn Weight?
Chopping to the Point: Considering SlimXo Clitramine’s newness to the market, the very little amount of clinical evidence there is showing Litramine to be effective, and the fact that the supplement is only sold through a free trial, we’d recommend speaking with your physician about more effective (and perhaps less expensive) methods of losing stubborn weight.
