Slim New is a supplement that promises to make the user lose weight and feel great, but anyone who visits either of the officials Slim New websites (there are two), and wishes to buy a bottle of capsules, will be unable to do so.
The facility isn’t offered, but getting a free trial bottle is easy. It’s just a case of popping your details into the online form and then providing your card details to pay the postage and packaging costs. And herein lays the problem. This looks suspiciously like the automated billing scam.
Automated billing is not mentioned once on either of the sites and there is no mention of further charges. In every respect it just appears to be a free bottle of pills—it’s not.
The bottom of the page on one of the sites has a link to the terms and conditions page and it reveals a lot. The trial period is just 14 days and customers who order the trial bottle are automatically enrolled in an automated billing cycle. It has to be cancelled within the trial period. If it’s not the unwitting customer’s card will be debited for £94.99 on day no. 15. They will also receive a fresh bottle of pills ever month, charged at £89.99 with a further £4.95 on top for postage and handling.
What are the Promises made for Slim New?
According to the marketing material, Slim New is the “#1 miracle fat burner in a bottle”. Professionals recommend it and it’s a “fat burning superstar” when it comes to weight loss. Both sites makes various other grandiose claims and the girl pictured wearing a doctor’s coat and stethoscope has a lovely smile that inspires trust, but in the end its just a lot of hype without any proof to support any of the claims.
Promised benefits include:
- Lose weight automatically without the need to think about it!
- Lose your cravings for food
- Burn stored body fat
- Retain muscle mass
- Stop feeling hungry
- Eat less and feel better
Slim New Pros and Cons at a Glance

Slim New Key Ingredients
No inclusion rates are provided, but the ingredients used in Slim New are:
- Raspberry Ketone: A popular fat burning ingredient that is arguably the best natural ingredient to be introduced to the weight loss market on a worldwide basis. Not all raspberry ketones are equal and the gulf between the reputable and the not so has widened significantly.
- Green Coffee: The coffee bean in its natural (unroasted) state. Unroasted coffee beans contain high concentrations of chlorogenic acid, a compound that can reduce blood sugar levels, speed up the metabolism and trigger fat burning. It’s a good ingredient with proven abilities, but the lack of inclusion rates makes it impossible to say if there is enough of it in Slim New to offer any benefits at all.
- Green Tea: The catechins contained in green tea are believed to possess significant fat burning abilities and some (but not all) studies suggest this is the case. Green tea also provides antioxidants that can be beneficial for the health and offer protection against disease.
- Acai Berries: Like green tea, acai berries contain health-boosting antioxidants. It is also touted to be a natural appetite suppressant and fat burner, but its abilities to do either of these things have never been successfully proven.
- African Mango: A fruit-based ingredient, African mango is usually used as an appetite suppressant and is also believed to contribute to thermogenic fat burning.
- Resveratrol: A grape extract that is known to be an antioxidant and may also increase insulin sensitivity. When insulin sensitivity is increased it causes the glucose levels to fall, therefore reducing the likelihood of excess glucose being converted to fat.
The Slim New sites contain a few testimonials that suggest weight losses of between 8kg and 21 kg are not unlikely. One woman apparently found “the pounds just melted away”, but onsite reviews are often bogus and nearly always biased, so independent reviews always offer a more reliable insight into product performance. In this case no independent feedback could be found.
Slim New Side Effects
Neither Slim New site mentions if side effects are likely to be a possibility or if the capsules are unsuitable for certain user groups, but some of the ingredients have the potential to be problematic so side effects cannot be ruled out. Green tea and green coffee are both sources of caffeine and caffeine side effects can include sickness, dizziness, and palpitations of the heart. Raspberry ketones may cause jitters and elevated blood pressure, and resveratrol can aggravate some medical conditions.
Pregnant or nursing mothers should not take Slim New or any other supplement without medical approval. People with health problems and those who are taking medications should consult with their GP before commencing supplementation.
Where To Buy Slim New
Purchases can be made from the official website – but as stated previously it is the ‘free offer’ that is pushed.
Although the ingredient profile looks good on paper it is difficult to judge with any detail as the quantity of each ingredient is missing. The auto billing free trial scheme is also a major negative. For these treasons we recommend Superfruit Slim as an excellent choice.
Superfruit Slim is highly recommended.
