“Fast and powerful long term weight loss within 10-14 days (guaranteed),” promises Zendaslim’s website.

Many weight loss supplements promise “fast weight loss,” but Zendaslim gives you an actual timeline — you should lose significant weight within 2 weeks. If you don’t, the company has a money back guarantee.

My first reaction was to believe the claim and recommend Zendaslim. But then I started to wonder if it was too good to be true. I researched the ingredients, analyzed the claims, scavenged for user reviews, and checked out the guarantee. Here’s what I learned…

How Is Zendaslim Supposed to Work?

The company made my job of researching the ingredients easy by providing references for each one. Besides being helpful, it showed me the company used research to make their product.

Green coffee bean extract – In a 2012 study, participants lost an average 17 lbs. while taking green coffee bean extract.[1] The secret ingredient is chlorogenic acid, which stimulates metabolism, suppresses cravings, and inhibits fat production.

Green tea extract – One study showed participants lost fat and weight by taking green tea extract for 6 weeks. Then, they stopped taking the extract for 2 weeks and were able to maintain their weight loss.[2] Green tea extract is high in EGCG, an antioxidant that burns fat and lowers blood sugar.

Apple cider vinegar – After taking apple cider vinegar, obese people decreased their waistlines, BMI, and visceral fat. Almost every one experienced an increase in energy, too.[3] Apple cider vinegar seems to work by improving insulin sensitivity.

Grapefruit herb powder – Adding grapefruit to a diet can aid weight loss, one study discovered. In the study, participants consumed grapefruit before a meal. Metabolic function improved and insulin resistance decreased.[4]

Caffeine – Clinical research shows caffeine promotes weight loss through thermogenesis and fat oxidation. Besides helping people lose weight, it also helped them maintain their weight loss.[5]

Acai berry – According to research, acai berry may reduce glucose, insulin, and cholesterol levels to improve metabolic disorders. However, the study only had 10 participants and each one consumed 200 g acai berry daily.[6] There is no way Zendaslim can provide this much in a few capsules.

Kelp – Kelp is rich in iodine, which enhances thyroid function. Zendaslim.com links to sites with information about kelp. But the company doesn’t provide research linking kelp to weight loss and I couldn’t find any either.

Resveratrol – One study found resveratrol breaks down fat cells and reduces fat deposits. However, the study was conducted on adipocytes, not humans.[7] Until more studies are done, the claims about resveratrol and weight loss are unfounded.

The Dosages

In each study, participants consumed a specific dosage each day. This is the amount researchers agreed was safest and most effective.

To recreate study results, Zendaslim needs the clinically proven dosages. The only problem is the company doesn’t tell consumers what dosages they use. So, you have to buy Zendaslim blindly; hoping the company included safe, effective amounts.

This isn’t fair to the consumer. If you’re paying, you should know exactly what you’re paying for.

Recommended Use

The website says Zendaslim has 60 capsules, but the label says there are 90 in each bottle. Take 1-3 capsules per day before breakfast, lunch, and/or exercise. You can take all the pills at once or one at a time.

Drink a large glass of water when you take Zendaslim and at least 8 glasses of water a day. Not only does water aid weight loss, it prevents caffeine-induced dehydration.

The company suggests taking Zendaslim for 3 months. For best results, consume a healthy diet and exercise on a regular basis while taking it.

Was Zendaslim Really Made by Doctors?

Zendaslim.com’s homepage boasts, “Doctor endorsed and recommended.” The link to the ingredient page is titled “Doctor Formulated.”

Saying a doctor made Zendaslim is supposed to add credibility to the product. However, not all doctors know how to make supplements or know what makes a good supplement. A pharmacist has much more expertise in this area.

In addition, the claim only adds credibility if it’s true, but I couldn’t find any information which convinced it is true. There isn’t a list of doctors who endorse and recommend Zendaslim. Nothing is said about the doctors who supposedly helped make Zendaslim.

If this claim is true, I don’t know why the company doesn’t provide any evidence. If the claim is untrue, I question how reliable other claims are.

User Feedback and Opinions

Unfortunately, users have not left feedback for Zendaslim online. The official website provides a form so consumers can send inquiries by email, but there isn’t a comment form.

There are testimonials on the site, but I don’t know if they are from real customers. Even if they are, only positive opinions are displayed, which makes me suspect bias because even the best weight loss supplements receive some negative feedback.

Who Sells Zendaslim?

Zendaslim.com is the only place to buy this weight loss supplement. The company doesn’t distribute it through other website, companies, or stores.

• 30-day supply (1 bottle) – $44.10
• 90-day supply (3 bottles) – $98.10
• 180-day supply (6 bottles) – $137.10

Shipping through USPS First Class Mail costs $4.95 and delivery takes 1-5 business days. Shipping with USPS Express Mail costs $24.95 and takes 1-2 business days.

Zendaslim is shipped internationally through USPS Priority International. The cost is $17.95 and delivery takes 6-15 business days.

All orders come with a tracking number.

The Money Back Guarantee

“You may return any unused item purchased from us for any reason within 120 days of your purchase,” states the company’s Terms & Conditions.

Wait a second…Originally, they said customers will lose weight within 10-14 days guaranteed. “Guaranteed” means you get results or you get your money back. But as soon as you use Zendaslim, you are no longer covered by the guarantee.

This guarantee is shady and the information is presented in a misleading way, which takes advantage of trusting consumers.

Will Zendaslim Give You Your Money’s Worth?

Zendaslim has several clinically proven ingredients, it’s true. But these ingredients are ineffective unless the required dosages are used. I doubt Zendaslim has all the required dosages because some are much too large for 3 capsules (e.g. 200 g acai berry).

I’m also concerned about all the misinformation on the site. The company claims Zendaslim was made and recommended by doctors, but there is absolutely no proof. They say consumers are guaranteed results, but as soon as you use Zendaslim, the guarantee is void.

Taking all this into consideration, I think Zendaslim is overpriced. I recommend buying a weight loss supplement with proven ingredients and required dosages. Also, buy from a company that makes legitimate claims and provides proof.
