Skinny Mini – Elevates your metabolism without jitters or side effects. Beats food cravings. Lightens your mood. Aids the detox process
Why You Might Buy It: Nice looking brand.
Why You Might Not: There is not a lot of information on this product. It’s an Amazon product
Our Opinion: We feel that there are better diet products on the market.
Skinny Mini is a supplement manufactured in the USA by World Genetics Nutrition and the company claim it’s the first “100% female-specific health and weight loss solution” that provides weight loss and detox benefits combined.
If the marketing information is to be believed, the product was nine years in the making and is perfect for the detoxification needs of hard-working women.
The promised benefits include:
- Elevates your metabolism without jitters or side effects
- Conquers food cravings
- Lightens your mood and increases focus
- Detoxifies your body
What Is Skinny Mini and How Does It Work?
Diet pills that elevate the metabolism cause the body to burn calories faster. When people have the ability to “conquer” their food cravings it becomes easier to eat less food.
The combination of appetite suppression and a faster metabolism can help cause the internal energy shortage that is necessary to make the body start burning its fat.
When the body if free from toxins, energy levels increase, the metabolism gets faster, and weight gain is less likely to become a problem. The benefits of a good detox are many and far-reaching.
Two capsules provide:
- Vitamin C (10.09mg)
- Vitamin B3 (50mcg)
- Vitamin B6 (100mcg)
- Vitamin B12 (60mcg)
- Phase 1 Antioxidant Cell Support Matrix (940mg): L-Glutamine, Green tea leaf extract, black tea leaf extract, raspberry ketones, cinnamon bark extract, bitter orange fruit extract
- Phase 2 Metabolism Amplification Matrix (298mg): Caffeine anhydrous, conjugated linoleic acid, L-Arginine
- Phase 3 Mood Enhancing Matrix (220mg): N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine, phenethylamine HCI, 5-HTP (from griffinia seed extract)
Let’s start with the vitamins. Vitamin C is an important vitamin and antioxidant. It boosts the immune system, can rid the body of toxins, and helps prevent disease.
The three B vitamins offer many virtues, both individually and combined, and one of the common denominators is an ability to boost energy levels by helping the body to extract calories from food.
World Genetics Nutrition fails to explain what the Phase 1 Antioxidant Cell Support Matrix is supposed to do, but the name of the proprietary blend suggests it’s supposed to provide antioxidants and both of the forms of tea provided can do this, as can raspberry ketones.
However, all these ingredients also boast fat burning capabilities, and bitter orange provides a fat burning stimulant called synephrine.
The other inclusions have virtues to offer as well but we fail to see why all of them have been combined. However, the antioxidants provided by the proprietary blend should offer protection from the damaging effects of free radical toxins and benefit the health in many ways.
The Phase 2 Metabolism Amplification Matrix is probably intended to boost the metabolism. Caffeine can do this, as can conjugated linoleic acid (CL). The role of L-Arginine is not so clear, but its presence may help prevent anxiety.
The Phase 3 Mood Enhancing Matrix contains three ingredients that may help it live up to its name, but looking at the capsule contents as a whole we are not really seeing any of the ingredients we’d expect to see in a formulation intended to provide a detox, such as milk thistle or dandelion root. Nor do we see anything likely to conquer food cravings.
Some average customer reviews read:
Side Effects and Health Issues
Skinny Mini is not intended for people under 18-years-of-age. Nor is it a suitable option if you are pregnant or nursing.
Women who have existing health problems will need to get their doctor’s okay before commencing use of this or any other brand of supplement. The same warning is extended to anyone who is planning on using Skinny Mini alongside medication.
Purchasing Options and Considerations
World Genetics Nutrition only offers very limited shipping options. Apart from the US, the only countries they ship to are Canada, Italy, Mexico, and the British Virgin Islands. Skinny Mini is also available via Amazon.com, but only to people who have US addresses.
Skinny Mini does not have a money back guarantee.
The Bottom Line
Although Skinny Mini contains ingredients that will provide antioxidants that may help purge the body of toxins, the lack of any powerful detoxifying ingredients makes it a poor option for people who are seeking a product that can provide this benefit. The product also fails to wow us as weight loss aid.
True, it has some green tea, and green tea is a good diet pill ingredient, as is caffeine, and there’s some CLA as well.
Unfortunately, many customers say the formulation failed them, and we have to question the value of some of the positive reviews because customer feedback also suggests World Genetics Nutrition may have been giving away free bottles of Skinny Mini to encourage people to help them build their volume of reviews.
If there were a money back guarantee it may be worth giving this one a go, but there is not and we can’t help but feel that, by trying to be a jack of all trades, this is a product that is master of none.
