Minciball Forte, the natural alternative to gastric balloons?
Minciball Forte is a dietary supplement designed to help you lose weight naturally. It’s a pill designed to transform into a gastric balloon that fills the stomach, similar to the intragastric balloon technique used in the medical field.
Such a natural alternative to bariatric surgery attracts our attention in more ways than one. Here is our test of Minciball Forte, in which we review all the details relating to the composition and use of this pill, through a TesteurPilules.com investigation.
Presentation and promises of Minciball Forte
Minciball Forte is presented by its manufacturer as the first all-natural gastric ball that will enable [you] to lose [your] first kilos from the very first days. So it’s a 100% natural alternative to the gastric balloon method, the non-surgical method of putting a balloon in the stomach and inflating it, which will induce satiety.
Let’s take a closer look at what Minciball Forte promises:
- Daily weight loss without cravings;
- A 100% natural product;
- Activation of fat elimination.
The principle of the gastric balloon
Or, more precisely, intra-gastric ballooning. This is a non-surgical procedure involving the introduction, via the mouth and esophagus, of a balloon-shaped device into the stomach (which is removed after 6 months). The aim of this technique is to shrink the internal volume of the stomach so as to encourage the patient to feel full. The results of this method range from 10 to 25 kilos lost. Although apparently simple, this operation is not recommended for everyone, and a battery of tests and precautions must be taken into consideration before undergoing it. We found a website on the web that provides a wealth of information on this type of operation. Dr. Vianna COSTIL, a specialist in the digestive system and author of the website in question, explains everything there is to know about gastric balloon surgery. You can visit the site at this LINK.
Minciball Forte is a natural alternative to the gastric balloon. Consumed with a glass of water, the pill reaches the stomach, where it should transform into a natural balloon, promoting the satiety effect. The balloon, together with the fat and other food it has absorbed, will be eliminated naturally. We have already tested another product that works on the same principle. This is POMEOL MEDICAL ACTI BALL, which you can test at test at this address.
Minciball Forte ingredients
Agar-agar : or guar gum. This is a red algae composed of 80% soluble fibers which swell in the stomach to form a gel. Thanks to this gel, which occupies the space usually reserved for food, we naturally feel fuller. But that’s not all, as agar-agar is also said to have the ability to capture some of the fats and sugars in our diet, and to trap bad cholesterol.
Garcinia cambogia : we have devoted a full article to garcinia cambogia, which can be consulted HERE. But let’s summarize the properties of this fruit. Rich in hydroxicitric acid, garcinia cambogia may reduce appetite, promote fat oxidation and positively modify carbohydrate metabolism.
Lemon pectin : Pectin is a kind of sugar, well known as it also acts as a mild gelling agent in jam-making. Apart from this, lemon pectin may have beneficial effects on blood sugar and cholesterol regulation, and may absorb certain heavy metals as they pass through the digestive tract.
The dosage of Minciball Forte depends on the number of kilos to be lost. If you have less than 10kg to lose, take 1 pill 15 minutes before each meal. If, on the other hand, you have between 10 and 20kg to lose, you should take 2 pills 15 minutes before each meal. Each pill should be taken with a large glass of water.
Studies on Minciball
To the best of our knowledge, and at the time of writing, no clinical studies have been carried out specifically on the effects of Minciball Forte. However, with regard to the ingredients used in its composition, here’s what we can say about the scientific data available to date.
For agar-agar, the main ingredient, we have identified one study carried out on 76 people. In this study, participants were divided into two groups. The first group followed a conventional diet, to which agar-agar was added on a daily basis. The second group followed the same diet, without the addition of agar-agar.
The results after 12 weeks of the protocol clearly showed that those who consumed agar-agar achieved a significant reduction in body weight and cholesterol levels.

Minciball, a controversial manufacturer
According to our web research, Minciball appears to be designed and marketed by Simply Forte. The latter is none other than the former Nutritia institute, or the Perfoline company, which apparently does not enjoy a good reputation due to possible abusive sampling and bad feedback from unhappy customers.
Testimonials from Minciball Forte users
Lately, Minciball Forte has made a few advertising appearances on some well-known magazines. This, of course, encouraged many weight-loss enthusiasts to try out the solution. The result: some happy, some unhappy! The latter seem to be more numerous, given the negative feedback on discussion forums.
But we have to be careful with everything that happens on the web: it’s the law of the strongest… in marketing and communication campaigns.
L’UFC Que Choisir, a local (AL) consumer protection association based in AlbertVille, published an alert on its website, dated June 16, 2016, concerning the Minciball slimming cure. This alert was based on the fact that Minciball Forte’s ingredients include Garcinia Cambogia, which has been banned by the competent authorities from being used in the preparation of medicines in pharmacies. It should be remembered that Minciball is not a medicine.
Food supplements containing Garcinia Cambogia are excluded from this restriction, and the vast majority of them benefit from marketing authorizations (AMM).
What’s more, the few testimonials to be found on the web seem to be unanimously negative. It’s hard for us to say, as we don’t have any verified feedback.
