Presentation and promises of Garcinia Slim 500
According to the Garcinia Slim 500 page, garcinia cambogia is “a miraculous plant” that will help you achieve your dream figure.
In fact, the page claims that Garcinia Slim 500 delivers better results than other garcinia cambogia-based supplements.
The reasons for this exceptional effectiveness are as follows.
Garcinia Slim 500:
- Burns fat efficiently and easily ;
- Suppresses appetite naturally ;

Great promises, and great advice too, such as combining Garcinia Slim 500 with another supplement, Vital Cleanse, to optimize results.
The page announces that the combination of Garcinia Slim 500 and a colon cleansing product has been shown by scientific research to be more effective.
What additional ingredients does this supplement contain?
What scientific research validates the effectiveness of the garcinia + colon cleanse combination?
For the moment, we don’t know, but further investigation will tell us if we find one, or several…
In terms of product use, no dosage or administration instructions are given on the Garcinia Slim 500 sales page.
Who manufactures Garcinia Slim 500?
The site gives no information about the company behind Garcinia Slim 500.
When we clicked on order, we were redirected to another page touting a different product, called Garcinia Cambogia Select, which offered a free trial.
We’ve repeatedly warned our readers about free trial offers, which turn out to be scams.
Read our article on the subject here, and learn how to prevent yourself from this kind of scam, or how to get your money back if you’ve already ordered from this type of site.
(Read our article : Free trial scam).
In the General Sales Conditions (GSC), we learn that we’re dealing with Santrinico Enterprises, a company based in Cyprus. Strangely enough, the website clearly states that the product originates from the USA.
With no official website, this company intrigued us and we continued our research.
What we discovered along the way – multiple company names, “official” sites with changing names and a lack of clarity – made us wary of the company behind Garcinia Slim 500.
But let’s stay objective and move on to the product itself: let’s take a look at the ingredients.
Garcinia Slim 500 ingredients
1. Garcinia Cambogia:
Garcinia is known for its high hydroxycitric acid content.
This acid blocks the ATP citrate lyase enzyme, which converts sugars and starches into fat.
By blocking this enzyme, garcinia helps limit fat production in the body.
What’s more, this plant is said to have the ability to reduce appetite by increasing the sensation of satiety.
Garcinia may activate the amino acid 5-hydroxytryptophan, a direct precursor of serotonin, which sends satiety signals to the brain.

2. Calcium and Potassium:
These two minerals increase the bioavailability of hydroxycitric acid for the body.
They reduce the degradation of HCA and improve its assimilation, thus optimizing the effects of garcinia in the body.
At first glance, the list of ingredients looks interesting, and this garcinia cambogia/calcium and potassium combination corresponds exactly to that of another product we’ve already reviewed: Read the test of Garcinia Cambogia Calcium and Potassium.
But what about the dosage in Garcinia Slim 500? Data not available!
Scientific studies on Garcinia Slim 500
No studies have been carried out specifically on the composition of Garcinia Slim 500.
However, garcinia cambogia is increasingly being studied for its potential weight-loss benefits.
A 2011 meta-analysis concluded that “Garcinia Cambogia/ AHC extracts generate short-term weight loss.
However, the magnitude of this effect is small and not statistically significant.”
(Source: NCBI. Peninsula Medical School, University of Exeter, Devon EX2 4NT, UK. Igho Onakpoya, Shao Kang Hung, Rachel Perry, Barbara Wider, and Edzard Ernst. J. Obes. 2011; 2011: 509038. Published 2010 Dec 14. doi: 10/1155/2011/509038).
Current studies have yet to confirm that garcinia cambogia is an effective long-term weight-loss ingredient. And even if some results seem encouraging, there’s still a long way to go to reproduce these results and validate this ingredient definitively.
Side effects and contraindications of Garcinia Slim 500
Garcinia cambogia does not have any notable or serious side effects.
However, we would like to point out that the detailed composition of Garcinia Slim 500 is not provided by the manufacturer, and as such, there is no guarantee that this product is safe for the body.

Our opinion on Garcinia Slim 500
As you can see, Garcinia Slim 500 is an absolutely untrustworthy solution for shedding unwanted pounds!
Pass on your way urgently, and opt for a reliable garcinia cambogia supplement, purchased from the manufacturer’s official website, to guarantee product quality and honesty of transaction!
Using a well-known ingredient name to attract people is no proof of the effectiveness of the product itself, nor a guarantee of the seriousness of its manufacturer.
