Darko Cvetkovic created Proactol in 2012, and the company’s headquarters are located in San Mateo, California. Proactol is a very sketchy company right off the bat with its unprofessional website, and unappealing packaging for its biggest selling product, Proactol XS. In the past they have had other products such Proactol Plus, which has gotten awful customer reviews to say the least. The new products ingredients contain Chitosan, Hypromellose, and Magnesium Stearate. The website does not have an ‘about us’ section, nor any customer service options because they clearly want nothing to do with the customer. If you are looking to purchase this product it will cost you $60.00 not including shipping for a bottle that will last you a measly ten days. With its lengthy claims and shallow promises on their homepage, I would think twice before buying into the lies that this company is trying to feed you.
Do Dieters Lose Weight On Proactol XS?
Proactol claims that the product is all-natural, and has no animal by products, to make it safe for vegans and vegetarians.* Their main punch line comes with the ingredient called Chitosan, which is supposed to bind fat molecules in your stomach so your body does not absorb the fat. The company claims you will still lose weight without any diet or exercise regime due to how the Chitosan will absorb the fat regardless of what foods your body is trying to digest.
All over their confusing website they make claims to how their product has been tested in over 40 different scientific studies regarding the effects of weight loss when taking Chitosan, yet they do not offer any insight to the studies past their claims.* Somehow this does not surprise me, as they do not even offer a solid money back guarantee, a meager thirty days is it. This product is simply a diet pill with no outside diet regime, or exercise routine, and I promise that you will be sorely unsatisfied and it will not work for you.
The testimonials from outside sources are enough to have me running for cover. There were no horror stories thankfully, but the common theme throughout the reviews was that the product did absolutely nothing at all. For how expensive these diet pills are, you would think they would do as they were advertised, and make the weight come right off. With no customer service support, it makes the product extremely hard to return, which will have you out of $60.00 really quickly.
Is Proactol XS Easy To Follow?
The product recommends that you take two pills, three times a day with each meal. First of all, only eating three meals a day does not help you lose weight. In many cases the recommendation is at least 5 healthy small meals when trying losing weight, so this is a red flag right away. Of course it is easy to take pills, and have no diet restrictions or exercise routines. Anyone on planet earth could do this, so their vibrant claims are simply claims and will do nothing more for you. The bottle comes with 60 pills, and you are supposed to take 6 a day, which will only last you 10 days. Holy cow, that is so expensive for a diet pill that has been said to do absolutely nothing! Due to the pill doing absolutely nothing for the customer, there has been no side effects noted which adds onto the pile of “nothing” that Proactol XS will do for you.
It does not come as any surprise to me that their social media activity is non-existent, and there are no support groups to be found anywhere. This company does the bare minimum for its customers, and simply provides them an expensive bottle of nothing, that will only burn a hole in their wallet. I would highly recommend staying away from this brand in general, and do your research thoroughly before giving them your credit card information. They make lengthy claims about the ingredient Chitosan, but do not give the customer any real meat behind why this ingredient is supposed to work. They recommend buying the products directly from the site, which comes as no surprise either because there are no customer testimonials, or outlets of relief when you are unsatisfied with this diet pill. I call this product and company a big scam, and would not go anywhere near it with gloves and a ten-foot pole!
