Sletrokor: Fronts An Overly Hyped Ingredient Profile That Barely Works


August 9, 2017 // In Supplement Scams // By saab

Sletrokor is a weight loss supplement that boldly claims to be “voted as the number one weight loss pill of 2017.” Essentially, these pills are also said to be made from 100%, all-natural ingredients that work well on delivering results such as suppressed appetite, regulated blood pressure, healthy cholesterol levels, and enhanced metabolism. Listed at $59.99 for a month’s supply, Sletrokor definitely is one pricey diet pill. Made from ‘all-natural’ ingredients, Sletrokor swears to deliver promising results; now the question is, how true are these claims?

 

The TL;DR to this post is that Sletrokor is not worth the money. These weight loss pills rode the bandwagon and boasted a formula that is made of ingredients that are only popular because of the hype. If you are looking to shed off those extra pounds, do check out or weight loss section.

 

 

Sletrokor’s formula: Hot or Hype?

 

At a glance, Sletrokor’s label fronts a formula that is full of familiar names recently gaining popularity when it comes to promoting weight loss.

Sletrokor proprietary blend, 1500mg

 

1500mg to be divided into seven different ingredients does seem to be underdosed. However, let’s still give Sletrokor the benefit of the doubt and have a closer look at their ingredients:

 

Legume protein concentrate (Phaseo vulgaris) - Phaseo vulgaris, otherwise known as white kidney bean extract, is a dietary carbohydrate blocker. Commonly called “phase 2”, it has been found to be somewhat effective in reducing the absorption of carbohydrates when consuming carb-dense meals which can alleviate body fat gain. However, note that while this extract might seem effective, its potency seems a little unreliable. As for the standard, 445mg of phaseo vulgaris appear to be effective at carb blocking. Looking at Sletrokor’s 1500mg prop blend, it seems impossible that they have included a full 445mg of this ingredient into their formula.

 

Chitosan - A type of sugar obtained from the outer skeleton of shellfish, chitosan is primarily used to treat obesity and high LDL levels. However, according to WebMD, there have been conflicting evidence in regards to the efficacy of chitosan in both weight loss and alleviating high LDL levels. For the dosage, a standard of 1350mg is typically administered, thrice daily.

 

Cider vinegar - Apple cider vinegar is another weight loss home remedy that is gaining popularity lately. The hype is probably the main reason why this ingredient is present in Sletrokor’s formula. However, there have been no published studies to scientifically back apple cider’s efficacy on weight and fat loss.

 

Garcinia cambogia - Otherwise known as Malabar tamarind, garcinia cambogia is a small fruit used in traditional cooking, but has very limited medicinal usage. Again, this is another ingredient that is gaining popularity in the weight loss world as a lot of supplements are riding the hype of using garcinia cambogia as a weight loss agent. However, according to examine.com, this fruit’s efficacy as a fat burner does not seem to extend to humans. Additionally, this double-blind study conducted to show garcinia cambogia’s efficacy on weight loss failed to show any beneficial influence.

 

Gymnema sylvestre - Commonly known as ‘miracle’ fruit, gymnema sylvestre is an herb native to southern and central India and Sri Lanka. It has been touted as a medicinal plant in Asia as it has been found to contain a number of different chemicals that might have pharmacological properties. However, its pharmacological use is still subject to research.

 

Cascara sagrada - More commonly called as bearberry, cascara sagrada is a plant native to western North America. This herb is known to aid in constipation for its laxative effects, which is probably the reason why this ingredient is present in Sletrokor pills. However, it has been noted that consumption of cascara sagrada might lead to electrolyte imbalance and dehydration. Additionally, this herb may interfere with heart stimulant medications and diuretics.

 

Aloe vera - A house plant commonly used to topically alleviate burns, aloe vera is recently gaining popularity as a weight-loss agent. While preliminary studies have shown benefits on using aloe vera as a weight loss agent, its mechanisms don’t seem as potent as other supplements. Moreover, there has only been one human clinical trial conducted wherein 300mg of aloe vera was used twice daily, and it remains unsure whether or not this is an optimal dose.

 

 

Sletrokor offers never-ending promotions just so people would bite into buying their pills

 

Sletrokor  would pretty much do anything just to lure people into buying their supplement. Just take a look at the following screenshots:

This one was taken on a Wednesday, where the site offers a huge 40% off of their products valid only that day (2nd of August). Great discount, right? 40% is definitely a huge saving.

 

But wait - it doesn’t stop there because I went back again to have a look at their site the next day and here’s what I found:

The 40% discount has ended. However, they came up with another promotion which is a “$20” gift card which can be used on your purchase. $20 savings - not bad, right?

 

I’m not saying that discounts are bad, in fact, it’s nice to save on some stuff every once in a while. But in Sletrokor’s case - something fishy is going on. Just imagine how much money they are actually spending on making their supplements if they’re ‘generous’ enough to give out discounts on the savings? And I highly doubt that they are sacrificing profit just to please customers.

 

 

Sletrokor boasts “substantiated results,” lists a bunch of ‘articles’ to back claims on their website

 

Sletrokor wants to make their claims extra believable and so they have posted a number of links to support their ridiculous claims. However, these URLs are either blog posts or articles and are not actual published clinical studies.

Sletrokor is also sold in Amazon and the reviews are not so good

 

Aside from Sletrokor’s official website, these weight loss pills can also be purchased on Amazon. However, most of the reviews about this supplement aren’t exactly good, reflecting the buyers’ disappointment. Here, have a closer look at some of the reviews published on Amazon:

Some images from Sletrokor’s website can also be found elsewhere on the web



Sletrokor features a lot of photos on their website to support their claims. However, it turns out that these photos don’t JUST belong to the Sletrokor website, as they can also be found elsewhere on the internet. Here, check some of these screenshots out:

The female model for Sletrokor is apparently also modeling for other weight loss pills - in the EXACT same outfit and posing.

And God knows whose transformation photo this one really is….



The Bottomline

 

Sletrokor is a weight loss pill that is possibly ineffective. Overpriced at $59.99 for a bottle, this supplement uses a bunch of overly hyped ingredients to possibly find a reason for the expensive price tag. However, most of these overly hyped ingredients only come with promises but no clinical trials to support the claims. Don’t be easily lured into  believing that this stuff deliver amazing results just because of the hype.
