ProbioSlim Review: Does It Really Work?

Written By : Rohit Dwivedi, M.D.   ✓ Fact Checked

ProbioSlim is a probiotic that claims to increase beneficial bacteria and fat oxidation in your body, which can improve digestion and help you lose weight.

(Last Updated on March 4, 2022)

Everyone has trillions of bacteria living in the digestive system. There are the good guys, probiotics. Then there are the bad guys, antibiotics.

In order to keep us healthy we need to ensure that our digestive system stays balanced. Probiotics help repopulate the good bacteria in the gut. These bacteria help keep you healthy. They may also stimulate the immune system. This can increase your ability to defend against any nasty visitors.

In order to thrive probiotics need food. This comes in the form of prebiotics. This is normally a type of fiber that the body cannot digest.

With an ever increasing amount of supplements on the market for digestive health, Probioslim sought to produce “an innovative supplement to not only provide comprehensive digestive support, but also help you lose weight safely and naturally”.

I wonder how this product works? Read this review.

What Is Probioslim?

This product is made by Smartbiotics, a trademark of Nutraclick LLC.

The company was founded by Daniel Wallace in 2009. A graduate of Harvard, Daniel marketed third-party health and beauty brands online. This led to the founding of NutraClick as a technology-driven health and wellness products company.

The product is a supplement in capsule form. It claims to promote healthy digestion, improve intestinal flora and help you lose weight.

Time to see what the company offers and how it may work.

Products List

There are two options:

  • Probioslim: contains a premium formula combined with one of the most efficacious and resilient probiotic strains with advanced weight management ingredients for holistic healthy living.
  • Probioslim Advanced: a blend of probiotics, prebiotics and a “Super Lypolytic Blend” to aid weight loss.

Lactospore

A strain of probiotic. This may help ease constipation, bloating, gas and diarrhea.

Super EGCG Green Tea Leaf Extract

EGCG, or Epigallocatechin gallate,is a type of a catechin which is found in green tea. It is thought to be the active chemical component of green tea. It may be responsible for the antioxidant and fat burning properties of tea.

Green Tea Leaf Extract(50% Caffeine)

Contains caffeine and catechins. These may help with weight loss.

Kiwi Extract

Can help protein digestion. It may also help upper tract gastrointestinal digestion.

Fig Extract

An antioxidant that may have a mild laxative effect.

Papaya Extract

Papaya is a tropical fruit that is widely available. This fruit has been used in traditional medicine many years. It may reduce blood glucose levels.

Chrophyll

May help suppress appetite.

The Probioslim Advanced also contains:

B Vitamins

May contribute to the development of obesity.(8)They also play a role in the release of energy from the foods that we eat.

Sphaeranthus Indicus and Garcinia Mangostana

These together maybe effective in weight management.

PreticX

This is a prebiotic. It can help the good bacteria (probiotics) do their job.

The company states that:

Every ingredient in ProbioSlim has been rigorously researched and vetted by our Harvard- and MIT- trained scientists

There is however no detail of who these scientists are or the results of their research.

How Does ProbioSlim Work?

how it works

The company states that their “premium formula”:

Combines one of the most efficacious and resilient probiotic strains with advanced weight management ingredients for holistic healthy living.

They claim that LactoSpore helps ease symptoms of diarrhea, constipation, gas, and bloating. It may also promotes the growth of beneficial flora. This may reduce harmful bacteria in the digestive system.

LactoSpore is a proprietary probiotic formulation owned by the Sabinsa Corporation. It contains Bacillus coagulans bacteria strain.

The company cites a clinical trial that showed improvement in conditions such as bloating, vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain and stool frequency.

The fig, kiwi, and papaya extracts in this product are prebiotics. These feed the billions of bacteria contained in each capsule.

There does not appear to be any evidence that Lactospore and prebiotics will help you lose weight.

The addition of green tea leaf extract may help you lose weight as part of a reduced-calorie diet. Caffeine may give you energy and control your appetite. This may help you burn fat.

There is some clinical evidence that the individual ingredients may have some benefit to health. They may even assist with weight loss. There is however no clinical trial on the efficacy of this product as a whole.

Cherlo writes:

Been taking this for 2 years. It helps my IBS and also very good for bloating. I would recommend this 100 percent for anyone with stomach issues. I have lost 24 pounds since I started. It is very soothing for the colon.

Some people do not experience any weight loss. They are however very happy with the digestive benefits they feel.

Brenda Singleton writes:

ProbioSlim is good for my indigestion problems. I have not lost weight taking the product. However it helps with my bloating and acid reflux problems. This product has been great for those problems I have suffered with and I will continue to use Probioslim.

There are also many people that are not so happy with their experiences. Again some people only wanted the product for its probiotics. There are many that say it does not work at all. Despite doing his research before purchasing

Ben Dashti writes:

For me this product did not do as advertised. I’ve read other reviews prior to purchasing which convinced me to purchase it. To be honest it did Absolutely Nothing. I didn’t care much for the weight loss aspect. I was really hoping it would help with bloating and maybe increase my bowel movements (probiotics). Unfortunately, I was only left with disappointment.

Many people report adverse side effects on their digestive system. Others have commented that is stops working with prolonged use.

RTH from Nashville reports:

Made me feel great for the first month. I lost weight, had tons of energy and went to the restroom regularly and then all of a sudden it stopped working. I became severely bloated, tons of bad gas, no energy and worst stomach issues then before I started taking this pill. I now have to go see a gastrologist I would not recommend.

ProbioSlim Review: Final Verdict

probioslim supplement review - verdict

It would appear that there is not a huge amount of evidence to back up the claims that the company makes in respect of their product for weight loss.

The probiotics and prebiotics may help with digestive issues. It would appear from customer reviews that this is not the case for everyone. There are reported side effects from some customers.

Green tea and caffeine may help with weight loss. There is some clinical evidence to support this. To see significant results you would need to follow a healthy diet and exercise.

As with many other products on the market, this does not appear to be a magic pill. It will turn you into a super slim version of yourself overnight.

You might want to give it a try for the digestive benefits, and hope that the weight loss aspect works for you. After all, we are all individuals and react differently to things.

Alternately you spend your hard earned cash on a gym membership and up the exercise with a healthy diet.

  1. I just took my first probioslim this morning. Iam gonna go get me some exercise by walking. I have my fingers crossed it works for me.

  2. Absolutely will [not] buy! No clinical evidence, unclear money-back guarantee, ridiculous price point. Please note–we’ve decided we won’t even take this product even if it’s offered for FREE.

  3. Started taking ProbioSlim Advanced and immediately experienced a severe case of diarrhea for several days. As a side effect, I definitely do NOT recommend taking this product.

  4. Hey! Hello, I was took that one Probioslim. Just used take one daily with drink water only. Then at work. But later few weeks I got weight lost. Wow. I like that. But where another $79.00 for that? I real missed that. I real want come back. Cuz of my weight crushed me. Ouch! I will check on Amazon . Smile.

  5. I’ve been so tired of being tired so today was my second day in trying ProbioSlim and my energy level has bumped up 100% I’ve gotten so much done in the last 2 days that I haven’t done in the last 2 months my husband is also doing it and he feels like for the first time his bowels have completely emptied he was diagnosed with a slow emptying Bowl & gets so bloated & in 4 days he feels so much better plus his energy also has bumped up big time too…
    So far so Good Thx ????

  6. I haven’t really lost any weight but my appetite did go away but when I did eat and took the pills I felt super bloated and very uncomfortable. I was also getting headaches in the back of my head so I have stopped taking the pills and will take my receipt and get my money back from at least one bottle since I purchased two.

  7. I love this product , it help me with my IBS .it really help with bloated n gas n constipation . I just bought 4 boxes from Walmart. There cheaper there it’s 19.99 a box.

  8. I just started taking Probioslim, it makes you very hot while exercising, which is a good thing!
    The con is, I’ve had issues with heart palpitations, it’s coming from the caffeine in the ingredients.
    Other than that… I cannot find any info on exactly how much probiotics is in the 30 pill package. The other pills I was taking was 40 Billion CFU.

    Does anyone know?

  9. So i’ve always had weak stomach as a kid growing up I learned what triggers my reactions but this year I seemed to be slower and I gained fat and feel my body changing. I also had loss of energy so I knew I needed to try something. ProbioSlim stood out at Walmart to get my digestion back in shape for me to begin exercising again. I started with 1 pill at breakfast and instantly felt the energy just skyrocket not only that but I felt the need to eat more so I did and I worried because usually that caused me problems to begin. I was surprised I didn’t feel bloated after eating more than usual and I even went exercising and felt with a lot of energy after that I even felt inspired cleaned the home played guitar for hours had good sex (they have other interesting products). The only thing is that I worried I didn’t have to go use the restroom until the next day… so I was kind of uneasy about taking another pill the next day I wondered if there is any side effects on the long run too much caffeine or energy mixed with appetite but then slow ? must be me or need more liquids? anyway, that’s where im at.

  10. I have been taking one a day for three days. Each time I take a pill, my stomach gets extremely upset. This morning I woke up with a very upset stomach and severe diahhrea . I do not recommend this product.

  11. THIS STUFF ALMOST KILLED ME. VERY UPSET STOMACH, AND NO DAIREEHA, CRAMPS GALORE. mISSED 6 DAYS OF WORK BEAUSE OF THIS.MY SON COMPLAINED ABOUT THE SYSPTOMS BUT NOT AS SEVERE.
