What You Should Know
Meta Slim is a somewhat unknown diet supplement. There is no central website marketing it and very few reviews are available on the internet. Where it is available, it is advertised as an all-natural weight loss product. Meta Slim contains no ephedrine, but instead uses the thermogenic properties of Green Tea Extract, Bitter Orange and Cayenne Pepper. These are popular ingredients, part of many weight loss products available today. Green Tea Extract is very common. However, right now, there have been no studies posted on the long-range results of using Bitter Orange and it appears that it may have many of the same effects as the banned ingredient ephedra.
Meta Slim’s ingredients include ginger root, cayenne pepper, bitter orange (citrus aurantium), yerba mate extract and green tee extract.
A package of 60 Meta Slim capsules retails for just under $20 and it is available from several stores on the internet. Meta Slim does not boast any unique ingredients – it is another combination of commonly used weight loss ingredients. Green Tea Extract is a stimulant that is said to increase metabolism and aid in fat burning. Meta Slim’s Bitter Orange may give some users cause for concern. This supposedly safe substitute for Ephedrine (currently banned) does seem to produce the same side effects. Dieters with heart trouble or high blood pressure should probably avoid Meta Slim (or any diet product that uses Bitter Orange). There is no evidence that Bitter Orange is an effective weight loss supplement. Cayenne pepper is said to increase thermogenesis and stimulate weight loss by increasing metabolism. Yerba Mate is a mild stimulant that is said to be safer than caffeine, however current studies are being done on a possible link between Yerba Mate and liver disease.

After looking at it more closely, it becomes apparent that Meta Slim offers nothing new to dieters. It looks like a re-packaging of several popular stimulant ingredients. There is no central advertisement for it and there are no studies or testimonials to demonstrate its effectiveness. Further, some of its ingredients (Bitter Orange and Yerba Mate) could potentially cause or aggravate health problems. Especially for those with heart conditions, it would be best to look for a different supplement than Meta Slim.
