Turbo Slim 2 slimming actions

boite-turbo-slimTURBO SLIM 2 ACTIONS MINCEUR is a slimming pill that claims to be able to block 50% of the calories in your diet.

If this claim proves to be true, then believe us, you’re probably looking at a miraculous weight-loss drug that will rid you of your weight problems for good.

In the course of this survey, we’ll see whether Forté Pharma has finally found the ideal solution to combat the harmful effects of fatty meals, and to meet the expectations of all those who are unable to control their cravings for fatty, tempting foods, and are torn between temptation and maintaining a healthy weight.

Forté Pharma produces other weight loss supplements under the Turbo slim label, but this is the latest.

The manufacturer claims that its new pill has achieved a 90% consumer satisfaction rate.

So, true or false?

Test Turbo slim

Turbo slim is one of the few weight loss supplements manufactured by a French laboratory: Forté Pharma.

A quick online search shows that Turbo slim is sold on Forté Pharma’s official website, as well as on those of a number of retailers.

However, we discovered that the manufacturer also produces another supplement called Calorilight, which appears to be the international version of Turbo slim 2 actions minceur.

What are the differences between the two?

From our research, it seems that there are none.

You can read the Calorilight test by HERE.

Back to our product.

The manufacturer recommends taking 2 capsules in the morning with breakfast.

However, it clearly states that Turbo Slim cannot give any effect if it is not combined with a proper diet. In our experience, this simply means that you have to go on a diet.

What we find fault with Forté Pharma’s Turbo Slim :

  • Lack of complete information on the mechanism of action;
  • The absence of clinical studies to approve its efficacy;
  • The absence of a money-back guarantee (money-back guarantee).

Forté Pharma: the manufacturer of Turbo Slim

Forté Pharma, whose official name is les laboratoires Forte Pharma s.a.m., is a foreign company registered with the RCS. Based in Monaco, the company’s business is “non-refrigerated warehousing and storage”. The company was founded in 2001.

The French version of Forte Pharma’s official website has several sections: univers minceur, univers énergie, univers santé. In the section we’re interested in, the slimming universe, you’ll find several products, for women, for women over 45 and for men.

Turbo Slim is one of the products for both women and men.

Forté Pharma has distributors in almost every region of France. On the site, you’ll find a tool to locate the distributor nearest you.

What Turbo Slim says it can do for you

Turbo slim 2 actions minceur is essentially designed for consumers who want to control their appetite and snacking cravings.

How is it supposed to work?

As its name suggests, Turbo Slim works in two ways:

  1. Control hunger;
  2. Burn calories more efficiently.

Want to find out more? So would we!

Only Forté Pharma won’t give us any more details.

The official website provides no information on the exact working mechanism of its supplement ingredients.

The problem is that all weight-loss drug manufacturers say the same thing and make the same claims, but few have any evidence to back up these claims.

Faced with this lack of information, we’re inclined to believe that Forté Pharma is one of those laboratories that doesn’t provide details simply because their supplement isn’t capable of delivering on its promises.

What are the ingredients in Turbo slim?

Once again, Forté Pharma has not seen fit to provide you with the exact composition of the slimming pills you’ll be taking daily for over a month!

Here’s the only paragraph that talks about the ingredients of Turbo slim on the official website:
Turbo slim contains 5 active ingredients:
This is a Japanese brown algae rich in protein (up to 21% of its dry weight), vitamins (A, B2, B12, C). This seaweed is ideal for stimulating growth and strengthening the body.

In terms of nutrition, this seaweed is used as a dietary supplement thanks to its richness in calcium (13 times more than milk), iron, magnesium and omega 3.

In addition to its nutritional properties, a new property has just been discovered in Japan that appears to reduce the accumulation of fats in the body: fucoxanthin.

This substance, which gives wakame its brownish appearance, stimulates fat oxidation and the synthesis of docosahexaenoic acid.

Docosahexaenoic acid helps reduce bad cholesterol, thus preventing cardiovascular disease and obesity.

2. ZINC :
Zinc is an important trace element for the human body.

It is involved in the proper functioning of several organs.

It is especially prescribed for people with skin problems.

It is said to stimulate the immune system, prevent macular degeneration and reduce acne symptoms.

This is an excellent trace element that brings multiple benefits to the body.

It is now included in many weight loss pills on the market. Indeed, it has been suggested that chromium helps regulate carbohydrate metabolism by working with insulin.

Be warned though, if the dose of chromium is less than 25 µg, it’s completely useless and won’t make any difference.

Unfortunately, it’s very easy to put a tiny bit of chromium in a pill and say it contains chromium, when in fact it has no nutritional value whatsoever.

Even in recommended doses, this nutritional value remains highly controversial, notably by the French Food Safety Agency, which clearly states:

  • There is no evidence to suggest a possible reduction in the risk of obesity and insulin resistance insulin resistance linked to chromium consumption in the general population;
  • That the metabolic effects are largely dependent on the form of intake, suggesting pharmacological effects linked to chromium picolinate rather than nutritional effects linked to the trace element itself;
  • Data on the safety of picolinate have not allowed a safety limit to be set;
  • The potential toxicity of long-term supplementation, depending on the form of intake, cannot be ruled out.

Afssa does not recommend chromium fortification of foodstuffs for the general population, whatever the form of intake.

4. BERIKETON (raspberry extracts):
Despite its sophisticated name, this is simply raspberry ketone, increasingly found in slimming supplements.

We have dedicated an article to raspberry ketone, which you can consult here.

Raspberry ketone is a raspberry extract containing phenolic antioxidants.

This extract promotes the secretion of adiponectin, a molecule involved in lipid and glucose metabolism.

It also acts against insulin resistance.

We should note at this point that extracting this substance is very costly, so it is generally synthesized in laboratories while preserving its slimming effects.

Tea is known as a natural fat burner.

Rich in caffeine and catechins, green tea increases the body’s energy expenditure and fat oxidation.

The two substances it contains act on noradrenaline levels.

Is Turbo Slim effective?

We might have been able to answer this question if we had the exact quantities of Turbo slim’s ingredients, but as the official website is woefully lacking in detail and sometimes even basic information, it’s impossible to say that Turbo slim can help you lose weight.

We still condemn this premeditated lack of information and continue to believe that a confident manufacturer will do its best to clearly display the composition of its product.

Side effects of Turbo slim

We have no information on the possible side effects of Turbo slim.

The lack of details on exact quantities makes it impossible for us to know whether you risk an overdose in certain ingredients if you take this pill.

Turbo slim is not recommended for pregnant or breast-feeding women. This warning also applies to people undergoing specific medical treatment. Its use is prohibited for children and minors.

How to buy Turbo Slim?

You can order Turbo Slim directly from the official Forté Pharma website, which will direct you to one of their partners where you can make your choice.

Forté Pharma does not offer a money-back guarantee for its supplements.

This is not usually the case with quality weight loss supplements, because if you trust the product you manufacture, you offer the guarantee! What’s more, we know that what works for one person may not work for another. Our metabolisms are different, as are our bodies’ reactions.

      Nanou, bonjour,
      Thank you for visiting!

      In fact, we’ve never dealt with this method based on ready-to-eat meals delivered to your home: we’re more oriented towards testing slimming food supplements (pills, etc.). Please come back more often to see if a test has been developed.

      Have a nice day.
