TriSlim Diet Pill Review
What It Is
TriSlim is one of the newer weight loss
products on the market today that is undergoing heavy marketing.
If you have been looking for a diet product you have likely become interested in seeing a new product being
However, when you visit their official website it seems very familiar. After spending some time on the website,
you will likely start connecting the product to another diet pill and it may be the same company.
There will be more on this later. Aside from this marketing, does TriSlim actually offer any weight loss
effects? To find out let's consider what the product has to offer.
- Green Tea
- Hoodia Gordonii
Chitosan is supposed to be a "fat attractor" that prevents your body from absorbing some of the
fat you ingest through food. However, there isn't a lot of research to
back up these claims. A few studies hint at some noted benefits, but only in amounts of 3 grams per day.
Green Tea is a proven weight loss ingredient. Clinical studies have shown that Green Tea can
increase metabolic rate.
Nowhere on the website do they give you an official listing of the
ingredients, just a sales copy that includes the 3 ingredients above. As a result, they don't say
how much of each ingredient is included in the pills. Nearly 95% of companies don't include the proper amounts of
ingredients in order to provide effective weight loss results.
When it comes to considering the company, things start to get interesting. TriSlim's website looks
similar to another diet pill, The Amazon Diet. This isn't to say that The Amazon Diet and TriSlim
are the same company, but their marketing tactics are very similar. Although The Amazon Diet has since
The shadiest practice that TriSlim employs in their marketing is the use of a "free trial", also known as an
autoship program. You won't notice the autoship enrollment option right away on their
website. Rather it is hidden in the "user agreement" link below the form that you fill out for your "free trial", a
link that is difficult to see.
Autoship programs are very tricky. When you sign up for them the
company starts to send diet pills every month automatically and charging your credit card. When you try to cancel
the program, it is often very difficult. There have been some horrific experiences in which people were charged
$150, received a $300 overdraft charge and weeks of phone calls before a refund was received. Not all companies are
going to be this difficult, but often some headache is involved. Basically, the autoship program is a way for the
company to sell you the product before you realize you don't want it.
Some companies are open when talking about their autoship programs, but it is terrible when companies such as
TriSlim make you think you are getting a free trial when you are really enrolling in
their autoship program and being stuck in a contract that is very difficult to get out of.
Especially when you aren’t aware you're getting into the contract in the first place.
When you order TriSlim's free trial you have 15 days, five days shipping plus the ten-day free trial, to call
and tell them you aren't satisfied with the product. Then the process follows what is described in their "user
agreement": "If you are happy with your results from this 10-day free trial, we will automatically enroll you
in our TriSlim Discount Autoship Program for $49.95 per month (40% discount), billed and shipped quarterly, plus
$15.95 shipping, billed automatically to your credit card."
Everything is done quarterly. This means you know the moment your free trial is finished you will be charged
$166 on your credit card for three months worth of product and shipping. And how can you tell if a product is going
to work in just ten days?
In addition to this, the company also has other shady marketing
tactics including posting TV show logos and stores to add supposed credibility, even though the
product has never appeared on any of them. They also have the same countdown clock on the top of their page that
The Amazon Diet had, trying to rush you into making a purchase decision. Of course, the clock restarts whenever you
refresh the page. So enough of their shady marketing practices, you basically get the idea and you see what TriSlim
is really about.
Pricing and Guarantee
The price isn't listed on their website and they don't give you the option to buy a single bottle. You can only
sign up for their "free trial". The 3-month supply they ship is about $150, so that comes out to about $50 a
bottle. Even without the shady marketing, $50 a bottle is a bit much for a product with
an ingredient profile such as theirs.
The company claims to have a one-year money back guarantee. They even claim to pay a three-month supply of
another product if you aren't satisfied with your purchase. Given the company's reputation from their marketing
tactics, I doubt the guarantee is real.
Is It Worth It?
The ingredient list is weak and they don't give you amounts. The marketing is shady.
The price is high and the guarantee likely isn't real. Therefore, don’t fall for the company's
trap. There are plenty of other weight loss supplements on the market with proven ingredients, in the
proper amounts and come from a reputable company. Don't buy TriSlim.
