What Is Adios Max?

Adios Max is a self-proclaimed slimming aid produced by a UK-based company named Diomed Developments Ltd. One pack of Adios Max slimming pills costs £14.99, contains 100 tablets and will last users for approximately 2 months.

This product is available via the official website (www.adiosdiet.co.uk), Amazon and eBay. It is also available in most UK health food stores.

Adios Max is a following to the original Adios Tablets. While it seems very similar to the original Adios diet pill, the formula is actually somewhat different. Where the original had 4 different ingredients in its formula, Adios Max only retains one of those ingredients – Bladderwrack.

As the product name heavily suggests, this product is targeted towards those who are looking for weight loss results. Consumers are told that the product is a “traditional herbal aid for slimming”.

Does Adios Max Work?

Based on our research into this product, we believe that it may be useful for the purposes of weight loss, but only if used correctly.

Just to be clear, Adios Max alone will not directly burn body fat or suppress your appetite to any significant degree (note: the manufacturers never claimed that it would).

Diomed Developments Ltd have been very conservative on the claims they make for their product and for good reason, there isn’t that much evidence to suggest the ingredient inside Adios (Bladderwrack extract) really works. The main theory for this product is that the ingredient inside contains a high amount of Iodine, a substance that is critical for thyroid function. By taking Adios Max, it is possible that your metabolic rates may increase.

Adios state that the product should to be taken by those who are already actively dieting and exercising – it should be treat as a ‘helping hand’ rather than your only means of losing weight.

We have found the following disclaimed hidden at the bottom of the Adios website:

“Adios and Adios Max tablets are traditional herbal medicinal products for use as an aid to slimming (as part of a calorie controlled diet and with extra exercise) exclusively based upon long-standing use as a traditional remedy.”

The brand also provide exercise tips via their website, which is helpful.

What Are The Adios Max Ingredients?

We have found the following ingredients via the Medicine.org.uk listing page:

Each coated tablet contains: 120mg of Extract From Bladderwrack Thallus (Fucus Vesiculosus L.) (5:1)

Non-active ingredients: Lactose Monohydrate, Sodium Starch Glycollate, Calcium Hydrogen Phosphate Dihydrate (E341), Talc, Magnesium Stearate, Titanium Dioxide (E171), Kaolin light, Sucrose, Acacia and Shellac.

Is Adios Max Suitable For Everyone?

Based on our research into this product, we do not advise anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding to consume Adios. This product is not suitable for those with bleeding disorders as bladderwrack may slow blood clotting. If you have an iodine allergy you should avoid this product. Do not take this product 2 weeks prior to surgery.

Is Adios Max Safe?

The formula does not contain any banned or dangerous ingredients; we do not believe it poses any risk to consumers.

What Are The Adios Max Side Effects?

We have found the following potential side effects to the adios tablets:

  • Could cause or worsen some thyroid problems
  • Gastrointestinal discomfort
  • Diarrhea [1][2]

Note: these side effects are possible but may not be the typical user experience.

Are There Any Adios Max Reviews From Customers?

We have found the following Adios Max review testimonials via Amazon:

These really do work alongside a balanced and healthy diet and I haven’t had any negative side effects as per other comments. I have lost 10lbs.

This does help…but you have to do exercise with it – it’s not a magic pill. If you eat healthily and exercise everyday whilst using these, you will notice weight dropping faster than usual.

Our Final Verdict On Adios Max

To conclude our Adios Max review, it’s a bit of a mixed bag – there are things that we like about it and things that we aren’t too blown away by.

The manufacturers claim Adios Max is a ‘herbal aid for slimming’, but we’re not totally convinced – while there are some studies that show bladderwrack can help stimulate the thyroid (thus boosting user metabolic rates) the evidence is patchy and there’s nothing available to suggest that Bladderwrack will work for 100% of users.

If you’re just starting out with weight loss supplements then perhaps Adios Max is a good choice, however if you’re looking for an “advanced” weight loss pill then you’ll probably need to look elsewhere.
