What You Should Know
According to the Nutrilite website, this company was one of the first to come up with the idea of nutritional supplementation, thanks to its founder, Carl F. Rehnborg. After Rehnborg’s discoveries and development of the Nutrilite supplement line, two of the company’s distributors went on to found Amway. Today, Nutrilite products are sold exclusively through Amway and Quixtar distributors. When customers try to purchase products directly through the Nutrilite website, they are automatically sent to the website for Amway and Quixtar.
Nutrilite offers a variety of product lines, including weight loss formulas. The Diet and Nutrition line includes a body system kit, beverages, meal replacement products, low calorie snacks and a variety of supplements. One supplement, Nutrilite Slimmetry, caught our eye because it claims to boost weight loss efforts with definite results. We will take a closer look at this formula to see if it can deliver on its promises.
List of Ingredients
According to the Quixtar website, the ingredients in Nutrilite Slimmetry include green tea extract, yerba mate extract, birch extract and coleus forskohlii extract. Based on our initial assessment of this ingredient listing, it appears that this product would primarily be used as a thermogenic to boost metabolism and promote fat burning.
Green tea extract is an excellent thermogenic ingredient, because the caffeine within will boost the metabolism effectively and the substance is loaded with antioxidants for a powerful nutrition punch. Forskohlii is also thought to be a thermogenic substance for weight loss, although it tends to work better in combination with other ingredients rather than on its own. Yerba mate is also used in a number of weight loss supplements because if its apparent thermogenic properties, although its effectiveness is disputed by some weight loss experts.
At the time of this review, a two-month supply of Nutrilite Slimmetry costs $39.90, making this a reasonably priced weight loss supplement. Quixtar also offers a generous 180-day money back guarantee on all purchases.
- Nutrilite has a long reputation in the supplement industry.
- The products are reasonably priced.
- One distributor of the products offers a 180-day money back guarantee.
- The ingredients in the formulas may not be the most potent available.
- We were unable to find customer testimonials for the products.
- Products are not directly available through the company website.
- The many links involved in the ordering process can make purchases somewhat tedious.
Overall, it appears that Nutrilite makes some decent products for a reasonable price. However, we prefer companies that sell their products directly, rather than relying on independent distributors to handle this part of the business. In addition, we have some doubt as to whether the formulas in the Nutrilite product will provide the greatest value. Customers who shop around may find more potent supplements at a similar price.
