At sideeffectsofdietpills.net we like to see diet products that think outside of the box. THINgloss is definitely an example of one of these products. Created by April Morris, from the TV Show “Shark Tank, THINgloss is a lip gloss that purportedly doubles as an appetite suppressant. Does the science check out with THINgloss? Can THINgloss help you lose weight or is it just a waste of money?
In this review, we’ll take you behind our research and analysis of THINgloss.
Just how THINgloss purportedly works is a mystery to us. The website’s claims do not make much sense. According to the website, THINgloss purportedly works by providing an aroma to your brain that controls appetite. The only ingredients in THINgloss that are associated with providing a strong aroma are peppermint and vanilla. Peppermint and vanilla are both great smells but no scientific research backs their ability to suppress the appetite through aroma. After all, if peppermint and vanilla provided such appetite suppressing aromas, every lady with the smelly candles would have a six pack.
The main ingredient in THINgloss appears to be hoodia gordonii. Hoodia gordonii is an extract from Africa and is found in many diet pills. Supporters of hoodia gordonii claim that it can help suppress the appetite. There are two big problems with Hoodia. First, there is no scientific research backing hoodia’s weight loss capabilities. A diet pill ingredient without any credible scientific backing is a worthless ingredient. Secondly, there are have been reports of fake hoodia on the market. THINgloss claims to have certified hoodia, but so does every other diet pill out there. It is difficult to know which hoodia is fake, and which hoodia is real.
Other ingredients in THINgloss include:
- kola nut-can proide some health benefits but don’t expect much weight loss help
- vitamin E-great for skin
- DMAE-great for skin
THINgloss Side Effects
THINgloss is comprised of all-natural ingredients. It is stimulant free and is not associated with any jittery like side effects. THINgloss appears to be as safe as a diet product comes. THINgloss should be combined with regular exercise and a healthy diet.
Does THINgloss work well enough to buy?
There is nothing in THINgloss that leads me to conclude that it can help provide weight loss. The main reasons being:
- there is no scientific research backing a lip ointment being able to help you lose weight through a topical treatment
- the ingredients in THINgloss are not backed by any scientific research to provide weight loss.
Although we like April Morris in ”Shark Tank”, her product does not appear to be a diet product that is worth purchasing. There are much better diet pills out there that are backed by real science.
THINgloss will set you back $26 including shipping and handling. Each purchase includes a THINbody 7 day detox kit.
