Slim Sip is one of several health and fitness products produced under the New Image Health brand name—owned by shopping channel retailers, High Street TV Group Ltd.
High Street TV Group appears to be a reputable company and a good level of customer service is offered via email, telephone, and online chat, but questions still arise.
Bearing in mind the fact that the company is responsible for marketing everything from clothing to DIY and gardening products it seems highly unlikely that they will have the knowledge or the knowhow to manufacture dietary supplements.
It is more feasible that the product is bought-in from elsewhere, which begs the questions: who is the real manufacturer and what is the standard of their production facilities?
What is Slim Sip and how does it Work?
Slim Sip is an effervescent diet drink that should be taken before eating to suppress the appetite. It contains just one active ingredient— glucomannan.
Glucomannan is a fibrous extract taken from the roots of the konjac plant. The fibers provide very few calories and cannot be digested, so glucomannan is unlikely to contribute to weight gain. The fibers also have the ability to absorb large amounts of water, which causes them to expand considerably. [Pubmed – WebMD]
The expanded fibers then fill the stomach to create a full feeling that causes the stomach to signal the brain and inform it no more food is required—thus suppressing the appetite, while also leaving only a limited amount of space in the stomach for any food that is consumed.
- Vegan friendly product
- Helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels
- Only 9 calories per serving
- Clinically proven to help you lose weight as part of a healthy eating plan
The European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) studied the appetite suppressing abilities of glucomannan and concluded there is a “cause and effect relationship” between Glucomannan and weight loss in the context of an energy restricted diet.
Certain other studies indicate glucomannan may also have the ability to help control cholesterol levels.
Slim Sip Media Focus
Slim Sip is manufactured by a company that specializes in selling via the TV shopping channels so—not surprisingly—they have produced a professional-looking and effective TV advert to help promote their product.
Slim Sip Customer Feedback
Customer feedback is split right down the middle with around 50% of users endorsing its use and a similar number complaining Slim Sip didn’t work for them or stating they did not like the taste.
“It doesn’t do what it says the drink isn’t clear like it shows on the advert the taste is horrible but I carried on at the end I was still the same weight I wouldn’t recommend it at all it was a waste of money”
“Just started on these but they really help keep my portions down and I feel very full after a smaller meal.”
“Taste horrible and do no good don’t waste money on this item. taken them 5 days and can feel no difference still hungry and the taste of powder makes u want to be sick.”
“I started to use this product in the run up to my wedding and found it was very helpful in shifting some weight. I never got hungry and found I ate less. I will be buying some more now I am back from my holidays and want to lose the last stone or so!! Highly recommend.”
Slim Sip Side Effects & Health Issues
The manufacturer suggests that anyone who has an existing medical condition should seek medical advice prior to using Slim Sip. The same advice should probably have been offered to pregnant and nursing mothers, but Slim Sip is a simple product that contains one natural ingredient that is unlikely to cause problems so side effects are highly unlikely.

Those wanting to experience the benefits of Glucomannan should look closely at the 5:2 Fast Formula – an effective capsule based supplement that contains Konjac Root and also essential vitamins and minerals.
The 5:2 Fast Formula is a ‘best in class’ product and should be seriously considered.
