Slimquick for Women Diet Pill Review (1)

Slimquick is a diet pill that is targeted to female users. Claims include that it's scientifically formulated, and that "SlimQuick is the world's first advanced fat burner designed specifically for a woman's body. This revolutionary formula is the result of nearly a decade of fat-loss research analysis and is truly unlike anything currently available."

Slim Quick markets several different products including the original Slimquick, Slimquick Night Time, Slimquick Extreme, Slimquick Hoodia, Slimquick Cleanse, Slim Quick Drink Mix, and Slimquick Naturals. Each of these products is marketed with a slightly different purpose, but the main common goal is weight loss for women. We will be reviewing the main product Slimquick.

Slim Quick claims to be back by "science", however, I'm unaware of any real science such as clinical studies to back up their claims. In any case, we will take a detailed look at the ingredients of Slimquick, which contains 6 key complexes, with each aimed at supporting fat loss through their individual mechanisms. Below, we'll take a look at the ingredients in each of the six complexes of Slim Quick for women. If you have used Slimquick, please share your review of it here.

Slim Quick Nutratherm Thermogenic Complex

This is the main complex of Slimquick, and contains 5 different ingredients including Green Tea Leaf Extract, caffeine, Cocoa bean extract, Yerba mate extract, and Clary Sage extract.

Green tea has long been used by the Chinese as medicine to treat headaches, body ache, poor digestion, and improve well-being and life expectancy. Green tea extract is bioflavonoid rich, and one of its main uses is fighting free radicals in your body. Green tea extract is also a common ingredient in many fat burners - it helps with thermogenesis and helps the metabolism of fat. Read more about green tea extract here. Green tea is also a source of caffeine.

Caffeine - we all know what caffeine is. So no more needs to be said.

Cocoa bean extract - Traditional chocolate is derived from the cocoa bean, which is one of the most concentrated sources of flavanols, a subgroup of the natural antioxidant plant compounds called flavonoids. There are abundant evidence that moderate consumption of chocolate, especially dark chocolate may prevent against development of cardiovascular disease. [1] Cocoa bean is also another source of caffeine.

Yerba Mate is a standard ingredient in most fat burners. This natural herb work to enhance thermogenesis and increases oxidation of body fat. Other than its thermogenic properties, Yerba Mate is high in antioxidants, helps increase energy, boosting immune system, and a host of other natural health benefits. Yerba Mate is a herb that contain a gentle form of caffeine, it also supplies vitamins, minerals, and 15 amino acids. Research suggests that yerba mate may aid with sleep irregularities and joint pains. Many people drink yerba mate to boost energy without the side effects of coffee.

Clary Sage extract - Clary sage is also known as Salvia Sclarea, which is a potent adenylate cyclase activator - meaning that it increases the enzyme action of forming cylic AMP (cAMP - cyclic adenosine monophosphate) from ATP. Increased cAMP increases lipolysis - or the breakdown of fat. It shows some promise, but we'll have to take a wait and see attitude.

As you can see from the list of 5 main ingredients in the Nutratherm Thermogenic Complex, most of these ingredients are a source of caffeine. So you can be sure that with each dose, you're getting plenty of caffeine.

Slimquick Estrotrim Hormone Balancing Complex

There are 2 ingredients in the hormone balancing complex including soy isoflavones and vitex agnus-castus. Soy isoflavones come from the soy bean, and it provides various health benefits including providing relief for menopause symptoms, protects against breast cancer, and also has a favorable effect on bone mass for postmenopausal women. There is a large body of clinical studies which have found soy isoflavones to have many health benefits.

In one study performed at the Seoul National University in Korea, 34 young women were studied to investigate the effect of soybean and isoflavone intake on bone mineral density and its change among young Korean women over a period of 2 years. Bone mineral density was measured 3 times each year using dual x-ray absorptiometry at the lumbar spine and femur. During the study period, they found that bone mineral density increased significantly. During the study, average daily intake of soybean was 39g, and intake of isoflavones was 8mg. By longitudinal mixed-model regression analysis, bone mineral density increased 0.26% per 1 mg of isoflavone intake per year. The study concluded that soybean and soy isoflavones has a positive effect on bone mineral density. [2]

During my research, I came across a large number of such studies, but I also found several studies which found no apparent benefit of soy isoflavones - directly contradicting the other studies. For example, one study done at the Schools of Public Health and Medicine at the University of North Carolina concluded based on their study results that a soy isoflavone-rich supplement appears to have little or no effect on bone in young adult women with normal ovarian function during the course of their one year study. [3] At this point, there seems to be much more studies which find soy isoflavones to have beneficial effects for bone density.

Soy isoflavones are also found to provide various health benefits for postmenopausal women - there is also numerous studies done on this subject as well. In a study performed at the Sao Paulo state university in Brazil, 80 women participated in a double blind, randomized, placebo controlled study. The female participants reported 5 or more hot flashes per day. They received either a 250mg soy extract or a placebo each day. At baseline and the end of the study, lipid and hormonal profiles, as well as vaginal, mammographic and ultrasonographic parameters were measured. After 10 months, they found that there was a significant reduction in frequency of hot flushes among isoflavone users (3.1 per day) when compared to those on placebo (5.9 per day). They concluded that the soy isoflavone extract exerted favorable effects on vasomotor symptoms and good compliance, providing a safe and effective alternative therapeutic for postmenopausal women. [4]

Efficacy of Vitex agnus castus L. extract Ze 440 in patients with pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS).

50 patients with pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) participated in a Vitex agnus castus study. The patients were treated daily with one tablet (20 mg native extract) during three menstrual cycles. The main effect parameter was the validated Moos' menstrual distress questionnaire (MMDQ), and secondary parameters were a visual analogue scale (VAS; self-assessment) and a global impression scale (GI, self-assessment).

At the end of the study, PMS-related symptoms were reduced by treatment. There was a significant score reduction (42.5%) of the MMDQ as the main effect parameter; however, symptoms gradually returned after treatment ended. The number of days patients sustained PMS symptoms was reduced slightly from 7.5 to 6. They concluded that patients with PMS can be treated successfully with Vitex agnus-castus extract, as indicated by clear improvement in the main effect parameter during treatment and the gradual return after cessation of treatment. [5]

Vitex agnus castus is native to the Mediterranean region. It has been used for various medicinal purposes, including treatment of of menstrual difficulties for over 2,500 years. It is also widely known as Chaste tree - it was originally used as an anti-libido medicine by monks to remain celibate. There are numerous clinical studies which have shown Vitex agnus castus to help in the management of premenstrual stress syndrome (PMS). [5] [6]

Instead of spending money on another diet pill, why not spend much less and learn the true method of long term, healthy weight loss that will lead to permanent weight loss results.
