Banital is one of the most popular weight loss products to hit the recent market. In part, it's because people see it through TV infomercials, discounting the fact that they have to use an expensive auto ship to keep you buying at $79.95 and the fact that they provide no real information. This being said, there are various disconcerting facts about Banital. But they draw people in using the idea of a double your money back guarantee, and no it's not like Al on Home Improvement. They know exactly what they're doing.
Phaseolus vulgaris -an extract of the white kidney bean, this is mainly meant to block the absorption of carbs. Now typically, consumers seem to see results with around 750mg or more. However, scientific studies have not really been devoted to this. This being said, it seems science may need to catch up. But they don't actually have the right amounts thereof.
Green tea -the most popular extract on the market, green tea has been used for fat burning as well as for its antioxidant benefits. Typically speaking, they give you a breakdown of 50% EGCG and 50% caffeine to give both benefits. You would need 400mg of that breakdown to promote real weight loss and fat loss. However, they use about 45mg EGCG and don't disclose the full amounts of anything. So realistically speaking, you aren't going to get the benefits thereof.
Peppermint leaf -meant to soothe an upset stomach, this does not promote weight loss.
Cinnamon bark -meant to promote regulated blood sugar, the results thereof would be extremely small at best and they don't have the clinically proven amounts.
Lemon Verbena extract -mainly meant to soothe stomach upset.
Chamomile extract -a glorified sleep aid, it does not promote weight loss.
Ginger root -meant to soothe stomach upset, it does not promote weight loss.
Licorice root -meant to soothe stomach upset, it does not promote weight loss.
Tangerine peel -known for its obvious antioxidant benefits, it does not really relate to weight loss.
Chicory root -supposedly meant to soothe stomach upset, it does not promote weight loss.
Gymnema sylvestre -it has been known to control blood sugar. But it requires a high amount they don't have, and it works much better when combined with chromium and garcinia cambogia.
Fenugreek seed -meant to soothe stomach upset, it does not promote weight loss.
Aloe vera -aloe vera is mainly known for its ability to heal cells inside and outside the body. It does not promote weight loss.
Bitter melon -mainly meant for the stomach, it does not relate to weight loss.
Citrus aurantium -the ultimate alternative to ephedrine, it requires around 250mg typically speaking. But they definitely don't use that much, treating it like legal ephedra now, which allows around 25mg, because that doesn't promote weight loss results.
Lycium berry -mostly known for vitamin content and possible benefits to stomach upset, it does not promote weight loss.
Chitosan -it comes from the shell of crustaceans, and many would say that it actually blocks fat. Consumers report this typically with amounts ranging around 1000mg. They don't have this.
Glucomannan -this is a clinically proven appetite suppressant derived from konjac root fibers. This means that basically it blows up in your stomach to fill up most of it with 8oz of water. However, it requires 1000mg or more, and they don't have this or else they would show it off.
At $79.95, can you say expensive? They try to offset this by offering a “double your money back guarantee.” But realistically speaking, this doesn't come through. There are so many requirements and otherwise that realistically, nobody can make that. First of all, they require that you actually get it recommended by a doctor, and no doctor would recommend this.
We would not recommend buying this. If you have already done so, make sure to get it back well before the 30 day real money back guarantee. They make you use it for at least 4 months if you are going for the double your money back guarantee. But you won't get that. So it's best to just go for the 30 day.
