The ingredients of Sletrokor
Sletrokor is a combination of
- Garcinia Cambogia
- Aloe Vera
- Cascara Sagrada
- Gymnema Sylvestre
- Legume Protein Concentrate
- Cider Vinegar
Here is what we found about the individual ingredients;
GARCINIA CAMBOGIA is the rind of the fruit of Garcinia tree found in India and Southeast Asia. The extract contains a chemical hydroxy citric acid. The latest fad about the Garcinia Cambogia arises from different studies that reveal its appetite suppressant properties. According to WebMD, it might help reduce fat accumulation in the body and increase the exercise endurance. In herbal medicine, it has long been used for weight loss, joint pain, and diarrhea conditions and for the treatment of worm infestations in the gut.
The research results of the connection between Garcinia Cambogia and weight loss have been conflicting. The same site(WebMD) reports that 50% of its dose taken for 8-12 weeks have shown unpredictable results on the fat breakdown and or energy expenditure in overweight persons however the inconsistent results might be attributed to the differences in dose and composition of the extract and the duration of treatment.
ALOE VERA is known as the plant of immortality according to Egyptian culture. An animal study report published in Obesity Research and Practice in December 2008 showed that a kind of plant sterol found in aloe vera has the capability to alter the body composition for better. The September 2013 issue of Nutrition revealed that diabetic patients were given an Aloe Vera supplement experienced weight and fat loss after eight weeks of consumption. The attributed properties of this plant are most likely to be due to its laxative effects on the gut. WebMD cites its blood sugar and cholesterol lowering effects.
CASCARA SAGRADA is a mild laxative, used as dried bark; it is beneficial in cases of joint and muscle pain, gallstones and intestinal complaints.
GYMNEMA SYLVESTRE a miracle plant, used in Ayurvedic medicine for diabetes. It is a laxative, diuretic and digestive stimulant having beneficial effects in decreasing the absorption of sugar from the blood. It does so by increasing the amount of insulin produced by the pancreas. Its place in Indian herbal medicine for metabolic syndromes, diabetes, and weight loss is quite established, however for conventional medicine, extensive research is required.
LEGUME PROTEIN CONCENTRATE Generally derived from legumes, these act as appetite suppressants. Some research studies have also shown their role in lowering cholesterol, serum LDL and triglycerides.
CHITOSAN is a sugar obtained from the outer tough skeleton of shellfish including lobsters, crabs, and shrimps. Its medicinal value is made use to counteract the absorption of dietary fat and cholesterol, thereby beneficial in cases of obesity and high cholesterol.
According to WebMD, there is conflicting evidence of chitosan role regarding weight loss and reduced levels of cholesterol. However, it aids fat loss when used in conjunction with Garcinia and restricted calorie diet.
CIDER VINEGAR is generally believed to help weight loss and recent studies have shown that apple cider vinegar blocks the breakdown of starches, thus making your consumed food a low calorie one. A study at School of Nutrition and Health Promotion at Arizona State University and published in Journal of Functional Foods showed that participants who had a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar mixed with eight ounces of water before meals had low blood sugar levels.
Sletrokor has no additives or stimulants and their claim about the ingredients being ‘100% natural’ is a fair statement.
The mechanism of action of Sletrokor
Sletrokor aids weight loss by
- Reducing hunger cravings and suppressing appetite
- Boost a healthy metabolism
- Brings down cholesterol levels in the blood
- Builds up the levels of Serotonin, the happy hormone
- Brings down the Leptin ratio
- Refurbish immune system
- Maintains blood pressure
The analysis of the ingredients made clear that they indeed have an appetite suppressing and sugar lowering effects in the body. The main ingredients of Sletrokor have general laxative effects, however. Chitosan, when combined with Garcinia, reduces the fat uptake by the body thus a low Leptin ratio is the expected outcome. When your body is at optimal sugars and cholesterol levels with maintained blood pressure, the overall well-being is improved with an obvious vigor in your immune system. Therefore, the statement by the company about Sletrokor bringing rejuvenation to your physical and emotional status also seems quite valid.

Any negative points
Sletrokor claims about weight loss without undergoing any diet or exercise are not convincing enough, as the ingredients listed have exerted their effects in conjunction with moderate exercise and low-calorie diet.
The ingredient Chitosan is a derivative of shellfish. If you are allergic to any of the shellfish, then this product is a NO for you.
The strength of each ingredient in the particular composition is not specified. Some of the customers have reported side effects as cramps and diarrhea whereas some of the customers have reported a suppressed appetite. Overall, the customer reviews are half-and-half either way.
The cost of Sletrokor is about $58.99 but with a discount, you get each bottle at a cost of $35.99 but there is a glitch to this discount. The discount applies if you purchase their ‘best selling deal’ of five bottles at one time. There is neither free samples available nor risk-free trial period. The company only refunds unopened bottles. There have been complaints about their customer service not responding promptly. In a competitive market, the company could have offered a better discount deal without the concealed clause of purchasing their best deals.
If you are embarking on a weight loss program for the first time with an overall healthy metabolism, you can opt for this product to give you a push. For old timers, who are exhausted with the weight loss system, we suggest trying more potent and effective products that promote weight loss with methods other than mere laxative effects.
