All Day Slim Facts
- Based on Garcinia Cambogia (HCA)
- Claims to be a fat burner and appetite suppressant
- Offers a chance to win $1500 in exchange for a positive testimonial
First impressions are very good, the website is very well designed with clever use of design and colours to give a healthy, friendly feeling.
But that the initial joy turns swiftly to utter sadness…..All Day Slim is available on a “Try Before You Buy” basis, in other words it’s a trial. But as per all these “trials” they are not free.
It might sound great in principle but all it mean is that it is delayed billing, you get the product delivered and then you are billed 14 days later at a cost of just under $80. At the same time you are also signed to receive the product every 30 days thereafter.
We really cannot understand why anyone would offer a product in this way unless it was to give the false impression that someone is getting a fantastic deal, only to be hit with charges later on.
Normally this would be as far as we would go with a product like this, any mention of a “trial” and a product goes straight on the rejected list, but in the interest of fairness and objectivity let’s see what the product itself is all about.
All Day Slim Warnings
- Can only be bough on a “trial” basis that eventually costs nearly $80
- No evidence it can work
- Lacks ingredient profile
- Poor feedback from consumers
What Does All Day Slim Claim To Do?
Apart from being revolutionary All Day Slim claims to be a metabolism booster, an appetite suppressant and a fat burner. It is said to do this by taking an intelligent “body and mind” approach.
It claims to do this by working on the mind to control your appetite, so you can eat the food you love but only in small portions. The body will also optimise its own fat burning abilities to decrease fat storage and increase fat burning for more energy.
So to put it simply, All Day Slim works on the body and the brain.
You are supposed to take All Day Slim 30-60 minutes before a meal. It is then said to line the stomach to make you feel full. This fullness then sends signals to the brain saying you are not hungry. So now you can eat your favourite foods but less of them.
The ingredients are then claimed to lower Insulin levels, which is said to tell the body to stop storing fat and start burning it. It is also said to lower the stress hormone, Cortisol, which they say, regulates the bodies urge to binge.
Lastly stored fat is unleashed and metabolized for fuel, giving an all day energy reserve.
So What Is All Day Slim and What Are The Ingredients For All Day Slim?
Despite having a lovely looking website, unfortunately it is very lacking in any detail. We could find hardly any detail of what is in All Day Slim, there are a few words saying it contains Assam Gelugur Fruit Extract, Orange Peel and Beeswax.
No ingredient quantities are given, no daily dosage details and no indication of how much of anything you are getting.
It seems that all the claims are built around the Assam extract, with the other two ingredients offering a supporting role.
- Orange Peel (D-Limonene): This is a concentrated oil extract from the skins of citrus fruits. Claims to be an anti-oxidant and is here to help the body absorb the Assam. Most of the data we found referred to its use as a cleaning product, making paint products and giving fragrance to things like candles.
- Beeswax: Used in this situation as a binder for the other ingredients. There is some evidence it may help protect the stomach.
- Assam Gelugur (Garcinia Cambogia): The ingredient that all the claims are made around. Assam extract is a fruit commonly grown in south-East Asia and central Africa. It has traditionally been used to make food taste better as it is structurally related to Citric acid, which is a sour flavour ant.
The active compound is Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA), which is said to be useful in weight loss.
It is said to inhibit an enzyme in Rats leading to reduced food intake and body weight. Unfortunately the studies done on real humans are not as convincing.
The Journal of Obesity did a systematic review to examine the efficiency of HCA in reducing body weight in humans, using all the available data from proper clinical trials. The results were very mixed with the conclusion being:
It is concluded that the RCTs suggest that Garcinia extracts/HCA can cause short-term weight loss. The magnitude of the effect is small, and the clinical relevance is uncertain. Future trials should be more rigorous and better reported.
Another review of studies was done by Examine.com who concluded:
Although there is some limited potential for (-)-Hydroxycitric acid as a weight loss aid, the magnitude of effect is quite low (up to 2kg over 3 months) and the benefit is unreliable; making it hard to recommend this compound as a fat burner or anti-obesity agent.
So the jury is out, there is no convincing evidence just yet to show that HCA is effective for weight loss.
So What Does All This Mean?
It’s not looking promising so far, if you get past the fact All Day Slim is a “trial” and take a hard look at the ingredients then there is not a lot to find. The total lack of any in depth information on the merchant site is very disturbing.
Yes there are some nice graphs but without any links to clinical trials to back these up then it can only be taken at face value. We could find no evidence of clinical studies involving the main ingredient, which they have called Leptisol.
Even if any evidence was presented to prove that Leptisol is effective then without clear indications of the exact dosages to be taken then it is not possible to make an informed decision as to whether it would work.
Does All Day Slim Have Any Side Effects?
The research conducted by the University of Exeter into all the studies they could find on HCA showed an incidence of:
Gastrointestinal adverse events were twice as common in the HCA group compared with placebo in one included study.
This would suggest that dosages of a certain level might lead to adverse stomach upsets. Perhaps this is the reason for adding beeswax to the ingredient profile to negate this effect? Without detailed facts it is not possible to say if All Day Slim has any potential side effects.
Caution: This supplement should only be taken by over 18 year olds and should be avoided if a pregnant or nursing mother, or have a pre-existing medical condition.
Any All Day Slim Reviews From Customers?
Again another search and we discover a raft of complaints against the product. Most people complain about being misled by the “trial” which is something we have come to expect. This is precisely why we campaign so vociferously against any sort of “trial.” Most people find it is exactly the opposite.
On the website itself they are encouraging people to submit their “testimonials” showing positive effects in exchange for a chance to win $1500. We do not agree with this form of promotion as in some instances it has led to people faking testimonials and weight loss in order to win the money. There is no suggestion that is the case here, but it could be seen to encourage fraudulent activity in some individuals.
So Does All Day Slim Work?
There is no clear evidence to suggest All Day Slim could be effective for weight loss. The lack of positive feedback since it was launched has been disappointing to say the least. The experts are distinctly divided over whether HCA promotes weight loss in any significant amount and without knowing the daily dosages then you have no idea whether there is enough in there or not.
Where Can I Buy All Day Slim?
All Day Slim is available from the main merchant website, however the checkout does not seem to be working at the time of review. We have a feeling the product may have been taken off the market in recent times. The company appears to be Lepton Labs LLC based in Nevada.
What About a Guarantee?
There is no guarantee as such, just the “trial” offer which as we have seen many people have been duped by. We would much rather see a product being offered at a fair price with a normal guarantee that is easily claimed.
DO NOT BUY ALL DAY SLIM!
A “trial,” no ingredient profile, no clinical references and no guarantee add up to a sorry mess.
With all the clinical studies casting doubt on the main ingredient being effective for weight loss as well then it is pretty easy decision to make.
