Vasayo describes V-Slim as follows:
MANAGE YOUR WEIGHT IN A HEALTHY WAY!*
Many weight management products on the market today take a narrow focus to weight control. Not V-Slim: Weight Management! This comprehensive formula boasts multiple ingredients to reduce cravings, boost metabolism, slow cortisol production, and maintain healthy blood-sugar levels. All this while providing a delicious and hydrating taste experience!
GET THE RESULTS YOU’RE LOOKING FOR
We all want to look and feel great, but life often gets in the way. Work, school, family, and more place seemingly endless demands on our time and attention. We get it. If maintaining optimal body weight were easy, we wouldn’t have needed to create V-Slim: Weight Management.
But the fact is that more than 2/3 of Americans are overweight or obese. We’ve created this product to help those who no longer want to be a statistic. Many have preached that being overweight can be remedied by simple math: calories-in vs. calories-out. Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. Proper weight control is a complex issue, with factors like stress, hormone imbalance, and appetite suppression playing key roles in achieving a healthy weight. The good news is V-Slim: Weight Management is designed to address each of these areas.

This product boasts some pretty awesome ingredients. From the proprietary extract from the caralluma fimbriata they’ve named Slimaluma to the gymnema Sylvester, to the coconut juice powder, Vasayo has really hit this one out of the park!
Being the curious cat I am, I decided to do a full investigation into each of these ingredients and figure out WHY they were added. Cause “why” is probably my favourite question.
Let’s get down to business!
Caralluma Fimbriata – or Slimaluma!
Caralluma fimbriata extract comes from a popular, edible cactus native to India. This cactus is a diet staple of the Indian people, it is often eaten as a vegetable, or preserved like pickles! It has also been used in times of famine or during long hunts to ward off hunger pangs. Caralluma fimbriata has also been used extensively in traditional medicine, for maladies such as ear infections, to wounds, to vomiting, and even epilepsy!
Double blind randomized controlled clinical trials have proven that caralluma fimbriata extracts in conjunction with garcinia cambogia and gymnema sylvester were the only plant based extracts to show effectiveness in weight management and weight loss through appetite suppression.
Coconut Juice Powder
This one suprised me, but then I realized it was simply freeze dried coconut water! And seriously, coconuts are magical. Over 4,000 years of history can’t be wrong! People in many cultures revere the coconut for its many positive medicinal qualities. Coconut water/ coconut juice is know for it’s ability to boost nutrition, beauty, and hydration.
Coconut water, tapped from young, green coconuts, provides 5 electrolytes; sodium, magnesium, calcium, potassium, and phosphorus – a similar electorlyte profile to human blood, making it an excellent candidate to help replace lost hydration. It’s naturally fat and cholesterol free, while being rich in B vitamins. It helps to fill nutritional gaps – especially potassium, as many humans don’t get nearly enough potassium in their diet!
Has been called “Mother Nature’s sports drink”. And for good reason, coconut water is an easily digested source of carbohydrates in the form of naturally occurring sugars and electrolytes. It has fewer calories, less sodium, and more potassium than sports drinks. And none of the processed yuckiness. Studies have shown coconut water to better at replacing lost hydration than comercially produced sports drinks.
The reason hydration is so vital to weight management and overall health is that our bodies have a marvellous ability to detoxify and cleanse, but dehydration hampers this ability. Without enough fluids, our livers and kidneys are unable to perform optimally. Coconut water can definitely help!
You’ve probably heard of this one, BUT, did you know it’s also known as malabar tamarind, or that it’s roughly the size of a grapefruit and looks like a reddish pumpkin that is native to India and South East Asia. This is another one that has been used in traditional and Ayurvedic medicine – the sour taste of garcinia cambogia was used as a digestive aid.
Garcinia cambogia has been shown in studies to boost fat burning and reduce appetite by blocking an enzyme used in the creation of fat. It can also hep your body to use glucose more easily – helping to stabilize blood sugar levels. This wonder plant can also boost serotonin levels, which makes you more happy, and less hungry! Other studies have shown garcinia cambogia to improve cholesterol levels – lowering tryglicerides and LDL, while raising the good cholesterol HDL.
This shrub like plant is native to India and Africa, and has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine. This extract is best know for it’s ability to suppress the sweet receptors on the tongue! It can also reduce the experience of cravings for sweets, while regulating appetite.
Gymnema sylvester has been used to lower blood sugar levels, reduce the amount of sugar absorbed by the intestine, lower bad cholesterol and stimulate insulin production in the pancreas!
A study proved the appetite suppressant power of gymnema by giving subjects the herb or a placebo – the subjects who took the herb one hour before eating ate less food than the subjects who took the placebo!
Chromium is an essential mineral, in that it is not made by the body and must be obtained through the diet. It enhances the effect of insulin and improves the uptake of glucose into the cells so it can be metabolized for energy. The United States has a higher number of people with chromium deficiency than any other country in the world, because soil levels of chromium are depleted and the remainder of the mineral is lost when foods are refined, especially sugar and flour.
Chromium plays a role in fat metabolism, mainly by lowering cholesterol – namely triglycerides. It can also reduce carb cravings! A study proved that after 2 months of supplementation with chromium, patients were experiencing significantly reduced carb cravings.
Oh, and as an added bonus, chromium supplementation is popular in fitness circles because it has been shown to reduce fat mass, increase lean body mass and to help facilitate fat loss!
(Chromium is also in Vasayo Core Essentials!)
Also an essential trace mineral that must be obtained through the diet, and has one of the lowest absorption rates of all minerals. Vanadium helps to regulate blood sugar by mimicking insulin activites in the blood. This is another mineral widely used in sports nutrition to help improve body composition and lean body mass.
Vanadium, like gymnema sylvester, deters sugar from being absorbed in the intestine, and instead directs it to the muscles to be used a fuel. It may also increase feelings of satiety, and modify the metabolism of glucose, which in the long term helps to prevent the growth of fat cells.
hydration – why it’s a big deal
I talked at length about coconut water and how it helps your hydration, and for good reason. Water is implicated in every bodily function, and as we become dehydrated, our metabolism slows down. Not only have we slowed our metabolism down, we slow our muscles down too – they are by far the biggest burner of calories. Once our body has entered a dehydrated, or even slightly dehydrated state, our body’s ability to use fat is also restricted.
It makes a lot of sense why Vasayo would endeavour to increase our hydration to help with weight loss!
Blood sugar levels and weight loss
Our bodies only need/can handle a certain level of sugar in our blood. This sugar comes from the digestion of the foods we eat, and things we drink – a diet high in refined foods and refined sugars can cause havoc on the blood sugar levels. Especially processed sugar and processed carbohydrates – these nutrient deficient foods have no fibre to help slow the digestion causing a spike in blood sugar.
Once we exceed the allowable level of sugar in the blood, our bodies kick into overdrive, and the pancreas releases insulin to help reduce the sugar levels by sending the sugar into our cells – but if the cells and muscles are already filled with sugar, the sugars are sent as fat to the liver and stored as fat on the body.
Once the blood sugar levels out, you experience what’s known as the sugar crash! We’ve all had them. You feel tired, irritable, HUNGRY and ready for more sugar! And back into the vicious cycle you go.
Over time, the body cannot keep up to the high pace of insulin production and insulin dysfunction occurs. Insulin dysfunction can trigger fat storage and make weight loss all but impossible.
You still with me? Good!
This is a great products that will help many many people with weight management. Wether that means losing the last 10 lbs after the baby, or losing 50 lbs to get back to a healthy weight. Vasayo V-Slim will help you maintain, and feel good about yourself while you get there! There’s no crazy diet to follow, there’s no heavy work-out regimen, there’s just honest to goodness ingredients that will work together with a healthy way of eating to help you achieve your goals!
This isn’t a miracle drink that will shed the pounds, BUT it will help your body work as it should to burn fat and be healthy!
The biggest question: How’s it working for me?
Great! I have been on V-Slim since January 20th, when we got our first shipment! I started the new year at 145 pounds, and as of today, February 3rd, I am down to 138.4 – This doesn’t sound like a massive amount of weight loss, but for me, that’s substantial as I have been struggling to lose any weight for over 6 months! Not only have I lost a few pounds, my body structure is changing for the better, I look slimmer, stronger and healthier.
This weight for me is high, I’m most comfortable around 125 lbs, but due to some health struggles recently, I have not been eating as well as I should or taking as good care of myself, so the ability to lose so excess weight without starving myself, or working myself to the bone is really awesome.
