This product was previously sold as "Swisse Ultiboost Appetite Suppressant".
It does what I need it for.
Even though it says this product has been discontinued, I managed to find it at my local pharmacy. I was only interested in this product as a supportive tool to curb my snacking in between meals. So I applied patience and common sense. I expected this product won't work immediately, and I planned to give it 2-3 days. To my pleasant surprise, it actually worked for me on the first occasion. Obviously, this is NOT some magic pill to make hunger disappear. What it did was help me feel full quicker and longer after my main meal. I took 1 pill 30 mi...ns before meal as directed, and after I ate dinner tonight, I felt my usual appetite for a snack or dessert. But 30 minutes later I lost the urge. So I was happy that it did this upon first use. So again, this is not a pill to magically delete hunger. You still have to eat as normal but it curbs the snacking urges in between, if you give it time about half an hour after your meal. Patience here is the key.
Little to no evidence, the entire company is morally bankrupt
Swisse have not been known as a company that values evidence, facts, science, truth or reality.
Why? Because there's no reason to, the marketing department comes up with the products and there really is nobody to tell them otherwise. Australia has effectively no checks. Most of Swisse products require one online form ticked off to get approval. No evidence their products work, in fact most of them can't, don't or can possibly do real harm.
There was an article written in The Saturday Paper where an ex employee was working the job of providing ...the 'evidence' for the products. This person's instructions came from the marketing dept after they had made the product and then the evidence was added to the product info later on.. This company was taken to great heights by a man allegedly known to some of his peers as someone who may have liked to enjoy a few powdery substances from time to time. Don't know if they were boosting anything, but i've heard they were known for their ability to surpress hunger.. Unlike this product.
Purchased in August 2006.
it does not work
it s expensive and it does not work for me. I am still hungry and it does not pressed my hunger which I was still hungry after my lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. I have problem with controlling my appetite although I did not crave for sweet. I just feel hungry and really hope this pill could work for me but it did not.
The first appetite suppressant that really works for me and I have tried quiet a few. Garcinia combined with green coffee worked in a very subtle way. XLS medical didn't work for me whatsoever. I am a foodie combined with a craver + emotional eater, so my food cravings are very powerful. I love good food, try to keep away form junk as much as I can. After a month of uncontrolled eating I gained 4 kilos. Swiss hunger control already helped me lose 2 kilograms. I am still working on losing another 2 and maintain my weight at 48 kg (My height is 154 cm). I decided to order a couple of Swisse online.
Best Suppressant on the market!
I am currently on the 5:2 diet and the pills are really helping on the two 500 calorie days. No hunger what so ever! Brilliant! I am 5ft 3 and my starting weight was 9 stone 10. My aim is to reach my goal of 8 stone 10, I've just reached the 9 stone 4 mark! could not recommend more!
No change in hunger for 3 weeks ......its crap
i took this for the first time and according to instructions for three weeks. It hasn't done a thing to reduce my appetite.
I'm baffled at the comments that say that it's worked for them and that they have lost weight. I would suggest one of two things with these people, they've been "paid" for such comments or just good old fashioned hard work has helped them lose weight, not the tablets.
I've lost weight the hard way now, by just gritting my teeth and being a hungry angry b*#ch.
It's the first time I've bought such a product, but I wanted to try it to curb snacking after dinner. I tried one first after lunch, and within 10minutes I felt like I'd eaten half a loaf of bread - it doesn't magically make you not want to eat, you just feel like you've over eaten already. It stayed that way for 3 or so hours - not quite the time period people are looking for. For now, I don't mind having spent about the price of a coffee per day to cut out the night time snacking.
just started today
Like my title says I tried one tablet today.I had one 20 mins before eating a snack for lunch.Noticed I didn't need to finish all my lunch.I felt fuller quicker.Still feel full several hours too.Although I do feel a bit queasy.Maybe its covering my hunger pains I should feel now.Will write another review in a few weeks.
makes me feel a bit queesy
don't bother - if I could give it 0 stars I would.
It doesn't do anything, Seriously. You will be as hungry as as if you have taken nothing. If it worked everyone would be buying it and Australia wouldn't be as fat as it is now..Have a cup of coffee that will work much better.. for a little bit at least
It doesn't work!
hunger levels dropped
I've been eager to try out this product for a while now and came to my sense to purchase it. I paid $49.95 for 50 capsules, so ATM I'm taking one pill in the morning before breakfast, and the other before dinner , and I find that I'm not feeling hungry as I usually do, so for breaky I'll just have a piece of fruit! I've noticed my snacking habits have also changed i don't seem to snack on anything , I try to drink a lot of water during the day as well as exercise regularly. I'm only on day 3 now and I'm seeing that I'm not over eating and I can barely finish my plate, I know it's early stages but I'm looking forward to see or notice some results within the month! MUST BUY! it's great
