We look into RegeneSlim to find out whether or not it will help you lose weight and is safe. In an industry known for scams, nothing is certain, however convincing it may look.
- Good-looking website
- No customer feedback
- Insufficient ingredients profile
- Made in the USA by Regeneca
- Contains two trademarked formulas Chromate and Super Citrimax
- Endorsed by an American Reality TV Star Taylor Armstrong
RegeneSlim is a relatively new diet pill on the market but despite that looks very slick and professional. Supposedly working as an appetite suppressant and energy enhancer you take one capsule twice a day in order to “lose weight” and feel great”. Endorsed by an American Reality TV Star Taylor Armstrong, RegeneSlim looks as if it may work despite the lack of convincing evidence. First impressions are important, however dig a little deeper and this begins to look less convincing.
RegeneSlim is a US diet pill that contains two trademarked formulas – Super Citrimax and ChromeMate plus some extra ingredients, not fully explained. Worryingly there has been an FDA issue with one of these non trademarked ingredients and this combined with a lack of customer feedback makes this diet supplement looks a bit suspect and untried.
RegeneSlim is manufactured by Regeneca, a division of Vivaceuticals Inc who develop and distribute Nutraceautical products. Regeneca manages three supplements in the range; RegeneSlim, Regeneboost and RegeneBlend. RegeneSlim is their most high profile product and aimed at weight loss.
With RegeneSlim you just take two capsules daily and lose weight apparently without changing your lifestyle. There are no instructions about how to support the weight loss which we find puzzling because diet pills are only ever part of the successful weight loss story and most reputable companies recognise this.
RegeneSlim contains a range of trademarked ingredients combined with their own formula and although the advertising is glossy there is no clinical proof that this diet pill will work or is even safe. More worryingly RegeneSlim ran into a problem recently with the FDA over one of the ingredients of the diet pill. An ingredient Dimethylpentylamine HCL also known as methylhexanamine was declared as dietary supplement by Regeneca but according to the FDA, had not been evaluated for safety. The FDA sent a warning letter to Regeneca in December 2012 saying;
there is inadequate information to provide reasonable assurance that such ingredient does not present a significant or unreasonable risk of illness or injury. Introduction of such a product into interstate commerce is prohibited under 21 U.S.C. 331(a) and (v)
This chemical ingredient may pose a risk to health and it appears that RegeneSlim is still in contravention of US law because it remains in the list of capsule contents.

What Does Regeneslim Claim To Do?
RegeneSlim makes all the usual diet pills promises. According to the advertising, losing weight with RegeneSlim is as easy as 1, 2, 3. The three steps are to take 1 diet pill, 2 times a day and 3 – feel better! You are assured that you will “have more energy” “Lose weight” and “be Healthier”.
The two patented ingredients ChromeMate and Super Citrimax are said to promote “lean body mass” and “curb appetite” and the diet pills have been formulated with “your lifestyle in mind”.
The big problem is that although the RegeneSlim website looks professional and glossy it all seems a little superficial. Supposed benefits to taking RegeneSlim are listed as:
- No Lifestyle changes
- No Strong Cravings
- No Pre packaged foods
- No Weekly Meetings
- No Embarrassing Weigh ins
- No Food restrictions
The celebrity, Taylor Armstrong is featured on the website. She was a contestant on a reality TV show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. However she has not endorsed this diet pill or been quoted as actually taking it herself. We must ask, does she even know about this use of her picture?
For readers outside the US, Taylor Armstrong is known for her Beverly Hills lifestyle and various personal problems. Pictured in US OK magazine there have been questions asked about her health and mental state following her abusive husband’s suicide. According to online gossip magazine, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills:
star Taylor Armstrong has had an incredibly tough year – and it shows in her gaunt face and bony chest.
It seems likely her personal problems have causes this unattractive weight loss and not RegeneSlim
According to other unproven testimonials on the RegeneSlim website, weight loss is extreme. 7lbs in one week, 35lbs in 3 months and 55lbs in less than 8 weeks. Dangerously excessive weight loss and all without making changes to lifestyle or diet. We do not want to believe it!
So What Is Regeneslim and What Are The Ingredients For Regeneslim?
RegeneSlim is a diet pill that apparently works as an appetite suppressant and energy booster. Ingredients include:
- Chromate – A trademarked chromium supplement and a common ingredient in US diet pills. It is said to increase lean muscle and burn body fat and is being investigated for its role in the prevention of diabetes. There are safety concerns about chromium supplements due to a possible link with cancer and the UK Food agency came close to banning chromium supplements due to health concerns.
- Super CitriMax – A patented fruit extract taken from the South Asian fruit Garcinia Cambogia sometimes called Gambooge. This extract has been investigated for its role in weight loss and although it appears to have some short-term effects, it has not been thoroughly tested. There have been problems with side effects including headaches, skin rash and gastrointestinal problems and further research is necessary. A trial in 1998 proved that Garcinia Cambogia worked no better than a placebo.
- HCA – hydroxy citric acid. Found in Garcinia Cambogia and considered to work as an appetite suppressant. May help regulate insulin levels.
- Kola Nut – nut containing caffeine and the origin of the cola as in coca cola.
- Green Coffee Bean – “flavour of the month” weight loss ingredient that has been featured on the Dr Oz show. Can promote modest weight loss. Contains caffeine.
- Methylphenethylamine – variant of Dimethylpentylamine and methylhexanamine and an ephedrine based compound with health risks. RegeneSlim have been contacted by the FDA about this ingredient which may pose a threat to safety.
- Synephrine – synthetic version of bitter orange extract. Can cause an increase in heart rate and blood pressure.
- Guggulsterone – common ingredient in body builder supplements. May be beneficial in anti cancer treatment due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
- Tyramine – naturally occurring trace elements from amino acid tyrosine. Can cause side effects in some people and is known for creating the “cheese effect” – the migraine that some people experience after eating cheese. May increase blood pressure but is also being evaluated for possible medical uses including the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease.
- Additional caffeine
So What Does All This Mean?
RegeneSlim is a fairly extreme diet supplement with very high caffeine content. It also contains ingredients that will not necessarily promote weight loss and may cause side effects and a risk to health.. .It will probably help you lose some weight simply by making you feel too “wired” to eat. This is not a safe diet pill. The FDA has already threatened the manufacturer with legal action over an unapproved ingredient and their poster girl Taylor Armstrong looks ill and gaunt rather than attractively slim and healthy. This diet supplement does not look safe.
There is no clinical proof and the company looks suspect. The huge amounts of weight loss maybe true or not but losing such excessive quantities of weight in such a short time are not advised.

Any Regeneslim Reviews From Customers?
So far, there have been no independent customer reviews for RegeneSlim. This is a fairly new diet supplement on the market and it appears that no one has actually tried losing weight with RegeneSlim yet.
So Does Regeneslim Work?
It may help you lose some weight. You will undoubtedly notice the effects of the pills due to the high caffeine content alone. HCA is well known for reducing the appetite according to some consumers who have tried it. Whether or not the ingredient amounts are in sufficient quantities to create the appetite suppressant effect is not known.
Some of the ingredients have been clinically evaluated for weight loss but in all cases, results remain inconclusive. However, Super Citrimax has been tested and found safe for human consumption. Chromate and chromium supplements have yet to be fully evaluated and are being tested for a link to causing cancer.

What About A Guarantee
There appears to be no money back guarantee on offer.
RegeneSlim has the appearance of being a caffeine strong diet pill that may help you lose weight but may well cause some side effects. It is not very established on the market and has not yet received any customer feedback.
Some of the ingredients look worrying and the chromate content is a matter of concern. Added to this, the FDA have questioned Regeneca the manufacturers over the inclusion of Methylphenethylamine due to safety issues about its role as a dietary product.
It is also very expensive and does not appear to be very popular. The Facebook page has no customer interaction and it is hard to even find out the recommended retail price.
