SmartSlim ReviewSmartSlim is a thermogenic dietary supplement from manufacture Doctors Design and is part of its Weightlab Series. This herbal supplement has been formulated to burn fat, suppress hunger and cravings, improve mood, boost energy and enhance focus.

According to the official product page when this review was written, SmartSlim is a “one-of-a-kind” product that combines powerful botanicals from various sources to work with your mind and body to “get weight loss moving forward.”  So, are these really the best diet tablets for you?

The ingredients in the SmartSlim formula include Green Tea, Bitter Orange, Velvet Bean, Sweet-scented Geranium, Sacred Lotus and Nutmeg. All of these ingredients are combined in the formula’s proprietary blend, of which there is 443 mg per 1 capsule serving. It should be noted that the amounts of each ingredient found within the proprietary blend have not been disclosed.

In regard to efficacy, ingredients such as bitter orange and sweet-scented geranium oil contain alkaloids that can stimulate thermogenesis (a form of fat burning) in some people by raising metabolic rate. This can boost the removal and oxidation of fat from adipose tissues stores. The power of this action is believed to be increased by caffeine, which is present in green tea.

Meanwhile, velvet bean may help to increase the availability of dopamine, and sacred lotus can mimic the act of dopamine. The thought is that this has an effect on eating behavior.

While research has been conducted on these ingredients, their effects on the body and weight loss, further study is required. You should know that there is no clinical proof that any of the ingredients in SmartSlim will lead to long-term measurable weight loss.

You should also know that the combination of synephrine (the natural occurring stimulant found in bitter orange) and caffeine can increase the risk of stimulant-related side effects, including sleeplessness, jitters, restlessness, anxiety, rapid heartbeat etc. It may also increase the risk of high blood pressure, fainting, heart attack and stroke. When taking this product, it would be in your best interest to avoid ingesting beverages or foods containing caffeine to limit such risks.

Do keep in mind that when it comes to taking SmartSlim, you should first speak with your own doctor and obtain his or her advice before using this dietary supplement for weight loss. It doesn’t matter that other doctors endorse this product. The advice and recommendations of doctors who may be associated with this product should not outweigh the advice of your own healthcare provider.
