Women’s Best produce a number of health and fitness products and are very keen to tell the world their supplements are made by women for women.
They also state their products are unlikely to work as well for men.
Slim is their appetite suppressant and, although the idea of diet pill that has the power to practice sexual discrimination is interesting, its just sales talk. The capsules only contain one active ingredient—glucomannan—and it works the same for a woman as it does for a man.
The Advertised benefits are:
- Contributes to quick weight loss
- Diminishes the appetite
- Makes you feel full for longer
- Supports fat metabolism
The first three claims are true for glucomannan—when it is used in the correct way—but claim number four is misleading.
Experts at the European Food Safety Association (EFSA) have examined the results obtained from numerous studies and confirm glucomannan has value as a safe and natural appetite suppressant, but it does not directly influence fat metabolism.
Any fat that is metabolised will be due to a shortage of calories within the body.
Glucomannan can help create the shortage, but it does not actively encourage the process of fat metabolization.

What is Women’s Best Slim and How Does it Work?
Women’s Best Slim is a diet pill that contains glucomannan. It’s a natural fibre taken from the roots of a plant called elephant yam. The fibres have the ability to soak up large amounts of water and become extremely swollen. When this happens in the digestive organs the presence of the swollen fibres crates a feeling of satiety that reduces the desire for food.
Although the EFSA acknowledges the value of glucomannan as an appetite suppressant, they also state it needs to be used in a certain way.
According to the EFSA good results will require:
- Three (1000mg) doses of glucomannan per day, which must be taken 30 minutes before the 3 main meals of the day.
- The doses must be taken with one to two glasses of water.
- Glucomannan must be used alongside a calorie controlled diet.
Women’s Best Slim Ingredients
According to the information on the manufacturer’s website, Slim provides 3.002mg of glucomannan.
We are presuming this is per day rather than per capsule and we are also hoping the point that has been added after the number “3” has been placed there in error. If it really is 3.002mg, the dose will be too small to have any positive effect, but if it is 3002mg, and we suspect it is, the amount will be about right.
[info]Usage Instructions One capsule is required in the morning and two at dinner. Both doses should be consumed with a large glass of water, and Women’s Best say optimum results can be achieved by consuming a further two to three litres of water throughout the day.
This is a good point to raise a couple of concerns. First of all, if each capsule really does contain 1000 mg of glucomannan, the lunchtime dose is double the amount the EFSA recommends and could fill the stomach with such a large amount of swollen fibre it may cause discomfort, pain, or more serious problems.
Secondly, the EFSA states glucomannan must be taken half an hour before the three main meals of the day. Women’s Best are only suggesting taking the product twice each day and they fail to provide any instruction on the timing.[/info]
Women’s Best Slim Customer Feedback
The manufacturer’s website does not have an area where customers can leave feedback. We searched for mentions of the product on internet forums and blogs, but drew a big, fat blank.
Side Effects & Health Issues
The sales page fails to state if side effects are likely to be an issue, but the second dose of the day may be double the amount that is recommended by the EFSA, so we urge all potential users to discuss the matter with their GP prior to commencing use of this product.
Where To Buy Women’s Best Slim

Women’s Best also sell Slim as part of a “weight loss bundle” that contains their fat burner (Burn) and a tub of Slim Body Shake (meal replacement). Their blubber blasting bundle has a price tag of $99.90 (£76) and contains a few extras. There’s a free shaker, a weight loss plan, two e-books (Home Workout Routines + Gym Workout Plan), and a $10 gift card to use when placing the next order.
Slim is not backed by a money back guarantee.
The Bottom Line
Glucomannan is an appetite suppressant with proven value. It’s a good ingredient, but we have doubts about this product, and the manufacturer’s guidelines are not in keeping with the recommendations made by the EFSA. We like the fact that Women’s Best have chosen such an effective ingredient, but we dislike the way they say it has to be used.Women’s Best Slim is a potentially good product gone horribly wrong.
If you are looking for a highly effective appetite suppressant then PhenQ is an excellent choice. PhenQ can help reduce hunger and prevent your body from taking on too many calories.
PhenQ is also a very powerful fat burner and can also help to block a portion of fat from the food you consume from being digested.
