Probioslim (ProBio Slim, Pro Bio Slim) Reviews
When suffering from digestive problems, the first thing most people turn to, are dietary supplements. Most of them promise relief of digestive issues such as constipation, IBS or trapped wind by improving the intestinal flora. Products such as the Ultimate 10 Probiotic, Enzymedica Pro-Bio 90, or Hyperbiotics’ Pro-15 are all based on the notion that adding probiotics to your menu can greatly improve the functioning of your digestive tract. Probioslim is no different, but takes things a step further: apart from providing your gut with probiotics to balance the bacteria, it also promotes healthy digestion and helps you lose weight by speeding up your metabolism.
What’s Probioslim and how does it work?
Probioslim is a dietary supplement, based on the combination of probiotics and prebiotics. Its innovative action relies on the combined action of the probiotics, which return the gut flora to its normal balance, and prebiotics which serve as nutrients, so the probiotics can safely multiply.
Rich in fiber, coming from kiwi, papaya and fig extracts, it’s supposed to return your gut flora to its original balance, as well as help you get rid of any digestive problems. The notion behind Probioslim is that health problems such as constipation or IBS are caused by irregularities in the gut flora – too much of the “bad” bacteria – which can be regulated by introducing probiotics. Probioslim relies on an innovative probiotic, known as LactoSpore, which is supposedly superior to any other probiotic, as it’s not destroyed by the harsh stomach environment and can safely pass to your intestines. Further enriched with green tea extract, a known antioxidant and supposedly, a metabolic booster, Probioslim promises not only relief from digestive problems, but also weight loss.
The innovative combination between the probiotics and prebiotics comes in a 60-capsule bottle that will cost you $69.99 (plus $4.99 for shipping charges). Most customers opt for the 14-day free trial (though you’ll still have to pay $2.99 for shipping). However, beware the fine print, saying that the free trial would automatically make you a member of Probioslim VIP Program – they’ll send you a full 60-capsule bottle 18 days after your initial order and charge you $69.99, if you don’t cancel it.
Probioslim do have a 30-day money back policy, but many customers have actually complained about not being able to get in touch and get their refund.
As most dietary supplements, Probioslim makes huge promises, backed up by science. There’s indeed evidence that stomach and digestive problems, including obesity and weight problems, are caused by an imbalance of the gut flora. However, there’s not enough evidence to back up the idea that these can be prevented or treated by simply adding a probiotic to your dietary plan.
Moreover, according to research, the particular probiotic, introduced in the product – the LactoSpore – is hardly superior to any other type of probiotics, offered on the market. Reviews and customer feedbacks are still scarce and mostly negative. What seems to be a large issue for most clients is that they can’t get in touch with the company to cancel their subscription, following the free trial.
Also, though green tea has been identified as an ingredient that might moderately boost your metabolism, Probioslim does not include any information as to the amount of the ingredients, featured in the product. The extracts and type of probiotic are simply listed on the bottle, without any explanation as to the concentration. Also, keep in mind that dietary supplements are not tested by the FDA for efficacy, or even whether they contain what they say they contain.
So, in conclusion, there isn’t much to back up Probioslim’s claim to help improve digestive tract flora, speed up your metabolism or help you lose weight. On the positive side, however, there aren’t many side effects and the product seems relatively harmless, so, if you’re struggling with digestive problems, it might be worth to give it a try.
