Minci Shot, a new take on artichokes!
If you’re a fan of teleshopping shows, you may have come across MINCI SHOT, the artichoke-based weight-loss program.
Artichokes again, and always artichokes, you say!
Yes, the Laon artichoke.
In fact, one of our most common cooking artichokes has been in the news for some time now, for its so-called slimming properties.
Minci Shot is one of the artichoke leaf extract-based slimming products that have invaded the market.
The exact origin of this product is difficult to trace, as the official website is a distribution site run by Euroshopping, a subsidiary of the Téléshopping group.
We have been unable to identify the laboratory behind Minci Shot.
The Promises of Minci Shot
Minci Shot presents itself as a “ready-to-use program for rapid slimming”, and as a “fast and effective” cure.
On the home page of the retailer’s website, you can see the results of clinical tests highlighting Minci Shot’s effectiveness. We invite you to take a closer look at what’s written below.
We can see that the study was carried out on 16 people, and that the loss of 2.3 kg was achieved by 1 person; the loss of 4.3 cm of waist circumference by 2 people. We’ll let you make up your own mind.
And the clinical tests prove it:
MAXIMUM LOSSES OBSERVED (C) IN JUST 14 DAYS!
Up to -2.3 kg weight loss (a)
Up to -4.3 cm in waist circumference (b)
Up to -2.9 cm on hip circumference (a)

Minci Shot – the Composition
I can’t find the composition of these slimming drinks on the website!
AND for us, it’s a golden rule: transparency is essential to guarantee consumers clear, simple and easily accessible information.
We find it unprofessional and unfaithful to hide or make difficult to reach the ingredients contained in a product.
But let’s continue on the basis of composition, which we managed to find on another teleshopping site.
The Ingredients of Minci Shot:
Minci Shot is made up of the following ingredients: Dry artichoke extract from Laon 5%; Dry artichoke extract 17%; Pineapple extract.
1. ARTICHOKE EXTRACT:
Let’s be clear: extract ofartichoke extract and artichoke extract are the same thing.
The Laon artichoke is a local artichoke, not an exotic artichoke with extraordinary properties.
Artichokes contain several substances. Together, they give this vegetable the properties attributed to it:
- Cynarin :
Dicaffeylquinic acid produced by artichokes. It is an antioxidant with a curative effect on the liver and gallbladder;
- Antioxidants :
Substances useful for health prevention;
- Fiber :
Essential for intestinal transit;
- Magnesium :
The body does not produce magnesium. The body must extract it from food. The recommended daily intake is 300mg, or 6mg per kilo of body mass;
- Chromium :
Essential for maintaining blood sugar levels ;
- Vitamin C:
Recommended daily intake is 75mg for women and 90mg for men;
- Folic acid or vitamin B9:
Daily intake is 300µg;
- Biotin or vitamin B8:
This vitamin has several functions in the body, including the production of fatty acids and the metabolism of amino acids and fats.
Daily intake of this vitamin differs according to gender (female or male), age group and state of health (pregnant, breast-feeding…) ;
- Manganese :
Toxic in high doses;
- Niacin (vitamin B3), thiamine (vitamin B1) & riboflavin (vitamin B2) ;
- Vitamin A :
Essential for preventing cognitive decline.
This complex of active substances acts as a natural diuretic, effectively helping to prevent water retention.
Artichoke also promotes healthy kidney function.
Artichoke leaf extract also increases the secretion of bile, which is synthesized by the liver and stored in the gallbladder until it mixes with food to facilitate digestion and assimilation.
By accelerating bile secretion, artichoke reduces the amount of water in the body.
The combination of the two diuretic effects of artichoke leaf extract could help you lose weight. However, you will be losing water, NOT fat.
The mild laxative properties of artichoke leaf extract reinforce the diuretic effect to accelerate water elimination, which may slightly speed up the weight loss process.
To sum up, the weight loss resulting from an artichoke-based treatment is a loss of weight by excretion, which in fact manifests itself as a loss of water rather than a loss of fat.
2. PINEAPPLE EXTRACT:
The pineapple extract present in Minci Shot drinks adds flavour to the product, giving it the taste of pineapple.
