ProbioSlim is a product by NutraClick and the main goal of the product is to help you lose weight through improving your digestion and speeding up your metabolism, but can it also be considered the best probiotic for diabetes?
But with a variety of negative reviews, lots of side effects and other shady information regarding this product, it might not be the best purchase, or so I thought…
ProbioSlim Probiotic Full Review & Opinion
Here’s my experience with ProbioSlim after taking the product, here’s how it worked…
ProbioSlim Ingredients and Probiotic Strains
Here’s the list of all the listed ingredients in ProbioSlim:
- Bacillus Coagulans,
- Green Tea Leaf Extract,
- Kiwi Extract,
- Fig Extract,
- Papaya Extract
This is the first shady aspect of this product, as you know, we always start off our reviews by looking at the number of strains and the CFU count of a probiotic.
With ProbioSlim NONE of that is available to us, essentially it keeps us guessing and that’s definitely something I DON’T want to do, when it comes to my health.
Regarding the strains, the only listed strain is Bacillus Coagulans, which I did fin quite beneficial, at least from the aspect of improving and taking care of my bloated tummy…
Unfortunately, Bacillus Coagulans is spore-forming, which is a double edged sword and it’s also the reason why it’s not one of my prefered probiotic strains.
Regarding the weight loss aspect of this probiotic, I did like the Green Tea Leaf Extract, as that’s been proved time and time again to be effective for weight loss.
Recommended daily dosage – ProbioSlim Probiotic
The directions on the ProbioSlim packaging say and recommend to take one capsule in the morning with breakfast and another one in the afternoon with lunch.
Considering my side effects, I’m not sure if their directions are correct (I will talk about this later), for now I recommend that you test and experiment to see what dose works for you.
Just make sure to not go over 2 capsules per day.
ProbioSlim Probiotic Benefits
Let’s first off take a look at all the benefits that ProbioSlim lists on their website:
- Natural weight reduction
- Replenishment of good bacteria in gastrointestinal tract
- Balancing skin PH levels promoting a healthy skin
- No constipation, gas or bloating
- Elimination of bloating, constipation and gas
- Provide energy boost for your day
And now in regards to what I actually experienced.
Natural weight reduction – YES! Two reasons for this, I’m guessing mainly due to the caffeine – which made me want to move and be more active, unfortunately it also made me a bit stressed and due to that I was on the toilet more often.
Both contributed to losing weight though, so I’m going to give props to the product for that.
Regarding the skin improvement, digestion improvement and elimination of bloating… I’m sorry to say, but I experienced absolutely no benefits in that region, which is a bit unfortunate since I’m more interested in my gut health than losing weight.
ProbioSlim Probiotic Side Effects
Side effects, uhh where do I even start…
Let me start by saying that if I knew about all the side effects that come with this product, I’d never even have bought it in the first place. Not even to test it!
First off the caffeine – I love my coffee, but I don’t drink a ton of it, maybe a cup per day, but while following the recommended dose and took 2 capsules per day, I experienced crazy side effects.
I was not aware of how much caffeine this has, it’s crazy.
The first day of taking these capsules, my heart was racing like crazy, I had chest pains and I was paranoid like crazy, it felt as if I was about to have a heart attack!
I then took a look at the packaging and noticed the hundred different warnings for when you’re taking these capsules… no alcohol, no driving, etc… A big turn off!
Anyway, the next day I had to give up coffee and reduce my consumption to only 1 capsule per day, to avoid the side effects.
I also had digestive problems due to all the stress caused by caffeine…

Review of ProbioSlim Probiotic
If I had to rate this product from 1 to 5, I’d give it a 2, and it seems I wouldn’t be the only one, since this product has over 50 complaints online!
The reason for my negative review is because this product should never been placed in the probiotic category!
I love probiotics because they help me in improving my health and well being, not because they make me lose weight after being pumped up and full of caffeine…
My experience was extremely scary and I stopped taking the product after a week and sent it back – luckily they at least provide refunds.
Overall I wouldn’t recommend it, because there are MANY other, better and also more affordable options on the market, that will ACTUALLY help you improve your health.
