AbRelax3, to eradicate soft bellies!
“Say goodbye to that ugly tummy that’s ruining your life! That’s what ABRELAX3, these triple-action, tricolored slimming capsules, are all about!
On its website, we see that this slimming supplement will not only help us lose our extra kilos, but also the fat accumulated in stubborn, hard-to-reach areas.
But what does it actually do?
What does AbRelax3 contain?
Are its ingredients really effective?
Which laboratory is behind this slimming cure?
The following investigation will answer all these questions.
Visit Promises of AbRelax3
On the official website, a short video gives an overview of what you can expect from AbRelax3 :
- Spectacular results;
- A clinically tested product;
- A supplement that revolutionizes everything we thought we knew about weight loss;
- Eliminates water and fat ;
- Activates metabolism;
- Regulates blood sugar levels.
Consumers testify, in this video on the site, to weight losses of a volume of 38kg in 21 weeks, 19kg in 2 months, or 32kg in 5 months.
So, is AbRelax3 really going to revolutionize the slimming supplements market and give us back a slimmer, leaner figure?
But first, let’s start with the source: who’s behind this supplement?
AbRelax3, by Ab VitaPlus or…
Remember the Perfoline company?
Well, we’ve discovered that behind Ab VitalPlus, the company behind AbRelax3, is Institut Nutritia, which in turn leads us to Perfoline.
Three names, one address and a single field of activity: distance selling from specialized catalogs!
The name Perfoline has long been associated with scams. Its lack of reliability and seriousness stems from its recurrent payment problems, its unconfirmed debits from customers’ bank cards, the complications and non-advent of refunds for returned products, etc….
AbRelax3, one tablet, 3 layers of Colors – 3 Active Ingredients
AbRelax3 capsules come in 3 colors, each corresponding to a specific ingredient and targeted action. AbRelax3 consists of :
1. CYNARINE :
This ingredient is found in artichoke leaf extract.
Artichoke has many well-known properties: it’s a natural diuretic, helping to reduce water retention and support healthy kidney function; and it’s a mild natural laxative, facilitating the elimination of toxins.
Artichokes can therefore effectively help you lose WATER weight.
AbRelax3 explains that:
“Its objective is to reinforce the impermeability of your tissues. Water no longer passes through the tissues of your belly and is eliminated naturally.”
We’d like to focus on this very point, as there is no scientific evidence or hypothesis to support this statement. Artichokes do NOT waterproof tissues!
2. CHROMIUM :
This is an essential trace element whose mechanism of action is not yet fully understood.
What we do know is that it increases tissue sensitivity to insulin, leading to normalization and stabilization of blood sugar and insulin levels.
Chromium also plays a role in fat and protein metabolism, and could help reduce fat formation by decreasing fat mass in favor of muscle mass.
Last but not least, chromium may act on the sensation of hunger, helping to avoid the classic craving trap that plagues people during their weight-loss programme.
Did you know? A study carried out on 15,000 people over a 10-year period, evaluating different dietary supplements, showed that those containing chromium were more effective than others.
On the website, we’re told that AbRelax3 :
“contains active chromium to bring relaxation and well-being and to reduce cortisol secretion.”
No clinical or scientific evidence of chromium’s effect on cortisol…
Beware, however, of chromium overdose.
In this context, here’s a 2009 report on chromium from the Agence Française de Sécurité Sanitaire des Aliments (AFSSA):
(Source: AFSSA. Agence Française de Sécurité Sanitaire des Aliments. Saisine n°: 2007-SA-0315. Published January 19, 2009).
3. GREEN MATERIAL :
This South American plant contains caffeine, and is accepted by French health authorities as an adjuvant (i.e. an ingredient that reinforces the effects) of weight-loss cures, notably because of its appetite-suppressant effect.
Caffeine’s effectiveness in weight loss is scientifically recognized.
It activates the metabolism, thus increasing the body’s calorie expenditure.
For more details on this plant, we invite you to read our following article.
We agree with AbRelax3 about the metabolism-boosting effect of green mate, but there’s nothing to back up the claim that this ingredient :
“Fights excess fat scattered around your gut and most importantly prevents it from reforming.” as formulated on the site.
Scientific studies about AbRelax3
On the official website, you can find a link to a clinical study conducted in 2013 to test the slimming effects, possible adverse reactions, and tolerance of AbRelax3 capsules.
The results of this study showed that AbRelax3 enabled:
- An average weight loss of 0.8 kg at D15 and 1.1 kg at D30;
- A centimetric waist loss of 0.8 cm at D15 and 1.2 cm at D30 on average;
- A centimetric loss in the hips of 0.3 cm at D15 on average;
- A borderline significant centimetric loss in the thighs of 0.2 cm at D30 on average;
- No adverse reactions were reported during the study.
Very mixed results, and nowhere near as spectacular as advertised in the video!
The study itself remains relatively irrelevant, since it is open-label and intra-individual. Each volunteer is his or her own witness!
What’s more, the report on the progress and results of the study contains no scientific authentication whatsoever, just simple Excel spreadsheets!
Side effects Contraindications of AbRelax3
According to the above-mentioned study, AbRelax3 capsules have no adverse effects. No contraindications are listed on the website.
In the absence of precise dosage information, we urge our readers to be vigilant when taking a supplement containing caffeine.
Despite its effectiveness, high doses of this ingredient can cause serious side effects, such as insomnia, anxiety disorders, palpitations…
Consult your doctor if you notice any unusual signs.
And while the site does not advise against using AbRelax3 for pregnant or breast-feeding women, we do urge you to exercise extreme caution. In fact, we strongly advise against taking any type of dietary supplement when pregnant or breast-feeding.
Finally, we recommend drinking plenty of water when taking a diuretic.

Digging a little deeper into the conditions imposed by the site, we found a so-called retraction clause stipulating that :
Ab VitalPlus sarl undertakes to reimburse to the user who has exercised his right of retraction within the legal period of 14 days from receipt of the package the sums incurred, including shipping costs, as soon as possible.
A little further on, we find :

It is our right to ask whether the warranty is for 6 months or 90 days?
Testimonials of AbRelax3 users
Testimonials seem to be very mixed, with a loss of 2 kg in 2 months, for example, accompanied by 2 hours’ exercise a week and a strict diet.
The general trend in AbRelax user reviews is difficult to discern, given the small number of reviews and the disparities between users’ statements.
Our opinion on AbRelax3
On the face of it, this product contains ingredients known to be effective for weight loss. However, the dubious reputation of its manufacturer, the honeyed testimonials we’d like to believe, and the unsubstantiated results of irrelevant studies with no confirmed scientific validity, lead us to warn against this product.
There are several products containing green mate and cynarine in their composition that represent a safe and healthy alternative to this product. Don’t hesitate to find out more before making your choice.
