Avesil is a diet pill that is available over the counter and that has been a part of the nonprescription weight loss market for some time now. It has gained a considerable popularity among dieters and has seen the greatest popularity in the United Kingdom, despite the fact that it is available in many countries around the world.
However, it is important to investigate Avesil further in order to understand whether or not it actually works as opposed to simply basing any decisions on sales and popularity, alone.
Limited Valuable Information Available
According to the official website for this product, Avesil is supposed to help a dieter to:
- Burn fat faster
- Increase energy levels
- Reduce their appetite
That being said, the way in which this is meant to be accomplished was not clearly identified on the official website at the time of this review. In fact, the style of the website is quite similar to that of many other nonprescription diet pills. It is low on information while being high on a push to sell.
While obviously the goal of any business is to make money by selling its products, there is a big difference between the transparent selling of a quality product and simply pushing a lot of bloated advertising at consumers that is filled with unsubstantiated claims.
Avesil Auto Shop Program
The concept behind Avesil is that the dieter signs up for a 12 day free trial, at which point he or she provides credit card details (to pay for shipping and to enroll in an auto ship program). The clock then starts ticking right away and after 12 days the next shipment of the product – at full price – is sent out.
This amount is charged to the credit card that is provided at the time of the free trial. This is a common tactic by many nonprescription diet pills, but in the case of Avesil, many users have reported that it is extremely hard to be able to get out of the program, regardless of whether or not they were satisfied with the first 12 days of product. There are reports from at least one reviewer that stated that the individual was required to cancel the credit card to block the bills from continuing to come in from this scheme.
Are The Ingredients Worth It?
The Avesil formula is made out of a proprietary blend that is a combination of:
- Decaffeinated green tea
- Ashwagandha extract
As it is a proprietary blend, the manufacturer has not revealed any of the amounts of the ingredients that were used. This being the case, even if the best ingredients were chosen, it would be impossible to know whether or not there was enough of them to make any difference in weight loss or if so much had been used that side effects could occur.
Part of the problem is that while some of these ingredients have been studied, none of have been studied enough to determine their true efficacy and safety for weight management and none have received FDA approval. Even caffeine, which research has found can increase metabolic rate, has never been proven to be an effective treatment for weight loss.
If you are thinking about trying Avesil, it would be prudent to first speak with a healthcare professional before taking it. This is particular important if you have an existing health condition, are taking other medications to treat a health condition or are pregnant or nursing.
June 2020 Update
Presently, Avesil cannot be purchased online, even though there are still several reviews and images of this diet pill that can be easily found with a simple web search. There is a very good chance that it has been discontinued or has been rebranded. That said, since there was very little truth behind the product claims and it was accompanied by a sneaky auto ship program, its unavailability and likely discontinuation isn’t exactly a loss to the industry.
Be Wary of Auto Ship Products and Programs
As discussed in the above Avesil review, this product is not the only one that is linked to an auto ship program. Make sure that the diet pill products or diet programs you purchase or choose to try for free are not automatically linked to one of these programs. It’s one thing if the company makes an auto ship option available for those who would prefer the convenience of this feature, it is another if it is forced upon you. Always protect your best interests and be sure to read all the policies, terms and conditions and fine print before making a purchase.
