Some Quick Information About Slim Sip

Slim Sip is a 1-ingredient product – it contains glucomannan konjac. Glucomannan is an expansive fiber that thickens and expands upon contact with liquid. It is this thickening/expanding effect that makes it quite an effective ingredient for weight loss.

The idea for this product is that when you consume the glucomannan, it then expands inside your stomach causing you to feel full, thus making you less likely to overeat. That’s literally the be all and end all for this product. There are no fat burning or metabolism boosting ingredients inside this product at all, the only way you’re going to lose weight is with continued long term usage; the glucomannan should help you consume less food overall which may result in very gradual weight loss. We say “..may result in” because this product will not work for everyone.

You may be wondering what the difference is between Slim Sip and plain-old glucomannan pills? Well, there basically is no difference. Slim Sip is just a more convenient way to consume the glucomannan. If you can handle taking pills you’re better off saving yourself a bit of money and going for that.

Our Slim Sip review team have stated that this is in no way shape or form a cutting edge weight loss product. In fact it’s actually one of the most mediocre weight loss drinks we’ve seen. For the price point of this product we’d ideally have liked to have seen it rammed full of awesome ingredients!

Does Slim Sip Work?

We do not think this product will be a good weight loss drink for everyone. Firstly, the product don’t contain anything that will boost your metabolism or actively burn body fat. The only thing it will do is suppress your hunger (length of time is totally dependent on the individual).

Losing weight with this product will more than likely be a long-term project, this is because the product leaves the rate of which you can lose weight down to your own metabolism; if you have a slow metabolism you can forget seeing fast results with this product, it’s not going to speed it up at all. We believe that to see any results with this product, you will need to be drinking three sachets per day for at least 2-3 months. At three sachets per day that means one £14.99 pack will only last for 10 days.. sustaining Slim Sip for the amount of time required to see results can be an expensive endeavor.

Our Slim Sip review team have also said that once users discontinue usage of Slim Sip they may see weight quickly return as their appetite returns. For anyone who struggles with yo-yo-ing weight this product is probably not for you.

What Are The Slim Sip Ingredients?

We have found the following ingredient information from the website:

Acidity regulators: citric acid, sodium bicarbonate; konjac glucomannan, flavor, anti-caking agent: magnesium oxide, sweeteners: sucralose; beetroot (Beta vulgaris L.) juice powder, acesulfame K.

Our Slim Sip review team has stated that this product literally is a one ingredient product. The Konjac Glucomannan is the only active ingredient that contributes to weight loss within this formula, the rest are non-actives to make the drink taste and mix better.

While Glucomannan is good for weight loss, this formula is very very minimal for such a highly priced product.

What Are The Slim Sip Side Effects?

We have found the following potential side effects from using Slim Sip:

  • Diarrhea
  • Flatulence
  • Bloating [1]

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

What does Slim Sip claim to do?

Slim Sip state two main things on their label.

  1. Great for weight loss
  2. Helps reduce your weight (With a total daily intake of 3g Glucomannan & when used in the context of an energy restricted diet)

While statement number 2 is correct, statement number 1 makes the product seem like the product makes weight loss easy.. it does not.

Users should know that this product isn’t exactly a ground-breaking cure for obesity. When using Slim Sip you’ll still need to use the product with a perfect calorie-controlled diet over a period of several months to see any tangible results.

Are There Any Reviews From Customers?

We have found the following Slim Sip Review testimonials:

Flavour: Blackcurrant | Verified Purchase
Hmmmm. It doesn’t really work. They are supposed to fill you up. A bowl of jelly would just do the same. Expensive for what they are. If you want to loose weight. Go to slimming world. In 2 weeks I lost 9 pounds and it cost me £10 for the classes. Healthy eating

Flavour: Strawberry | Verified Purchase
Yes these are good but I ordered some in tablet form and felt they worked better. I did still feel like picking at food with the drinks.

Flavour: Blackcurrant | Verified Purchase
Awful, didn’t make any difference at all

Where Can I Buy This Product?

You can buy Slim Sip in most health food stores as well as online.

Our Conclusion.

To conclude our Slim Sip 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. Despite the clever marketing and sleek branding, this product isn’t a miracle product.. in fact it’s quite underwhelming when you look at what it really is (well branded glucomannan).

Ultimately the product is expensive and not very effective at delivering short-term fat loss results. As this product doesn’t contain any fat burning ingredients at all users shouldn’t expect speedy results, rather the weight loss from this product will be gradual and over multiple months of persistent usage.. the weight may also return once you stop using them.
