Diet Magic Review
Diet Magic Facts
- Described as Diet Magic, by Symmetry
- 30 capsules per bottle
- Complicated cycles of use
Diet Magic is a metabolism boosting diet pill that also supposedly suppresses the appetite. It is manufactured by Symmetry, and is available from the official website, dietmagicoffer.com. The website makes plenty of claims about the product, many of which we find to be misleading or just straight up lies.
The website claims that the product is safe, and all natural. The inclusion of the ingredient Geranium Flower is the cause for concern here, as it is a common false name for 1, 3-Dimethylamylamine, an amphetamine derivative that has been banned by the FDA. This product is neither safe, nor naturally derived from Geranium stems or flowers, as is often claimed.
The website also claims that all of the ingredients in Diet Magic are on the FDA’s GRAS “generally recognised as safe” lists. As DMAA is a banned substance, this is definitely not true.
Diet Magic Concerns:
- Auto-ship program
- Potential Nasty side effects
- Contains Banned substance DMAA

So What Is Diet Magic and What Are The Ingredients For Diet Magic?
The official Diet Magic website provides two different pages discussing the ingredients of the product and detailing how they work. The descriptions of the ingredients used below are our own, and in some cases, seriously differ from the claims made by Diet Magic.
- Vitamin B6: Vitamin B6 has several important functions in the body, including ‘allowing the body to use and store energy from protein and carbohydrates in food’. Whilst taking excess amounts of vitamin B6 will not infinitely improve this ability, a deficiency could make it more difficult to lose weight. Vitamin B6 is naturally present in a wide variety of foods, including meat, cereals, bread and vegetables, and is often included in fortified breakfast cereals.
- Calcium: Calcium is known primarily for the role it plays in bone strength. However, calcium has also been linked with weight loss. Studies have found that increased levels of calcium in the body are associated with increased fat burning. It is seen to greatest effect when extra calcium is incorporated into the daily diet through consumption of dairy, whilst maintaining a calorie deficit, but some effect can also be seen through calcium supplementation. The differences were small, but over time accumulate to be a significant amount of extra weight loss.
- Magnesium:Although important for various bodily functions, magnesium does not directly aid in weight loss attempts. Increased consumption of magnesium may led to an increased amount of free testosterone in the body, which in turn could play a role in reducing body fat and increasing lean muscle mass in the body.
- Chromium: This is used primarily to lower fasting blood sugar levels and to lower insulin levels in people who have type 2 diabetes. In terms of its potential effect upon weight loss, it is possible that taking chromium picolinate by mouth for 2 to 3 months might produce a small weight loss of about 1.1 kg. Obviously this is an incredibly small amount of weight loss, but studies are still inconclusive.
- Dark Chocolate Powder: Cacao extracts are thought to help to boost the metabolism and act as a mild stimulant, but there is little evidence to suggest that this is a strong ingredient that can impact upon actual weight loss significantly.
- Geranium Flower (GaranaX): Some companies claim that 1, 3-Dimethylamylamine is extracted from Geranium Stems, but it is most likely that it is a lab-synthesised product, derived from amphetamines. Primarily used as a nasal decongestant, this product is also advertised as a dietary aid, as it is thought to act as a stimulant and an appetite suppressant. Its use as a weight loss supplement has been banned in several countries because of the side effects and several deaths that have been associated with its use. Its use as a nasal decongestant has also been banned by the FDA.
- Green Tea Extract: Green tea is high in a group of antioxidants called catechins. Studies have suggested that catechins and caffeine both increase energy expenditure by boosting the metabolism temporarily. However, the metabolic increase caused by green tea is limited. One study found that the use of green tea was not enough to counteract weight gain following a very low calorie diet.
- Phenylethlamine HCL (Trace Mineral Blend): Also known as PEA, this ingredient is derived from the amino acid phenylalanine. It is thought to increase alertness, aid in concentration and focus, and may also enhance mood, which are all arguably traits that dieters need help with in succeeding with their weight loss attempts.
- Caffeine: Numerous studies have shown that caffeine boosts energy levels and alertness, as well as mildly boosting the metabolism, causing a small increase in the number of calories used by the body. The effects shown in studies are small, and some studies are inconclusive.
- Vanadium: Some studies suggest that Vanadium may help diabetics to use insulin; however the studies were small, and the results may not apply to people who are not diabetic. For the majority of people, Vanadium will likely play no role in weight loss. The doses used in the studies are also likely to be much higher than the dose included in this diet pill.
So What Does All This Mean?
Whilst this ingredients profile may sound like it is an effective weight loss combination, it is most definitely not a safe mixture, primarily because of the presence of ‘Geranium Flower’, which is named elsewhere on the website as 1, 3-Dimethylpentylamine. These are two names for the product DMAA, which has been banned by the FDA since 2013, following numerous cases of adverse side effects being reported, including ‘psychiatric disorders, heart problems, nervous system disorders, and death.’
Other than this, the diet pill does contain some ingredients that are safe and proven to increase a person’s metabolic rate and to increase boost weight loss, i.e. caffeine, green tea and chromium.
Does Diet Magic Have Any Side Effects?
1, 3-Dimethylamylamine significantly increases blood pressure and heart rate, as well as being linked with causing stroke, heart attack and death, even in healthy people who have used the supplement. Other side effects may include shortness of breath and tightening in the chest, seizures, neurological problems and psychiatric problems. More information about the product, and the FDA’s ban upon it, can be found here:
This product also contains caffeine, and so could cause headaches, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, heart palpitations, increased urination, jitteriness, dizziness, dehydration and insomnia.
Not intended for use by persons 17 years or younger without the supervision of a health professional and parent/guardian.
Not for use of persons who are pregnant/nursing, caffeine sensitive, suffer from high blood pressure, heart disease, difficulty urinating, psychiatric condition, depression, recurrent headaches, a medical condition or are taking MAO inhibitor or ADHD drugs.
Do not take with cold medicine/drugs containing Pseudoephedrine, Ephedrine, PPA or caffeine-containing products.
Consumption contrary to warning may cause adverse health effects. If unpleasant effects occur, discontinue use.
Any Diet Magic Reviews From Customers?
There are numerous customer testimonials on the official website, but these are obviously selected to make the product appear to be a viable and safe weight loss aid. We could not find any other customer reviews on independent retail websites.
My husband was so excited… I lost 10 pounds my first two weeks on Diet Magic and 15 total for the month. I love the extra energy and no more cravings.
Finally a product that works for me! I’ve lost 17 pounds so far using Diet Magic. It is great to get back in my favorite jeans. I have confidence in Diet Magic because I can take it without bad side effects so I am willing to share it with others. Just about everyone I know wants to lose some extra pounds. This product is going to help a lot of people. BLESSINGS!
I noticed a drastic decrease in my appetite as well as my energy level on the first dose. After only two short weeks of taking Diet Magic, I lost 10 lbs. I will be down to my target weight in no time.
So Does Diet Magic Work?
The customer testimonials suggest that the product works incredibly well and without side effects. However, the ingredients profile suggests that many customers will end up suffering from side effects, even if they are also experiencing weight loss. We find in general that people who are losing weight seem more willing to ignore side effects, even those that should lead to the product no longer being used.
Where Can I Buy Diet Magic?
Diet Magic can be purchased from the official Diet Magic website. One bottle contains 30 capsules, and costs $51.95. A six day trial pack costs $13.45.
There is also a preferred customer program, which is just a nicer way of phrasing ‘auto-ship program’. This is a monthly subscription program, and costs $41.35 a month. The website states there are no contracts and that customers can cancel anytime, but customers of auto-ship programs in general often struggle to cancel them, or forget that they are subscribed and keep receiving the product when they no longer want the product. Here at diet pills watchdog we recommend avoiding auto-ship programs.
What About A Guarantee
The official website states that there is a 100% satisfaction guarantee, and that returns are 100% hassle free. However, as the website also states that the product has a 100% FDA quality formula, we are not sure to what extent these guarantees can be trusted.
It is impossible to approve of a product that is being sold in the US and claims to customers to be selling a product that is safe and adhering to all FDA guidelines, when in reality they are doing the exact opposite. By making misleading and fraudulent claims, especially about the banned ingredient DMAA, the manufacturers of Diet Magic are taking advantages of customers trust in the company, and they could be endangering customers and their health.
Add in that the manufacturers of Diet Magic are also offering an incredibly expensive product, and a discount when signing up to their autoship program, which could leave customers out of pocket. Diet Magic is also an unsafe product, because of the ingredient Geranium Flower, which is actually the banned ingredient DMAA, which can cause a wide range of side effects, including shortness of breath and tightening in the chest, seizures, neurological problems, psychiatric problems and even death.
Obviously, Diet Magic is watchdog rejected, and we would encourage anyone who already uses the product to stop using it immediately, for the sake of their health. Whilst it may cause significant weight loss, the risks associated with its use are not worth it!
