SlendGlow Review – 4 Fat Burning Benefits of Botanical Extracts

On 10th March 2021, BE International started a Privilege buy program for it’s new product call Belixz SlendGlow.

Slendglow by BE International

SlendGlow is a formulation containing herbs which are traditionally used for weight management.

It is fully made and imported from Osaka, Japan.

SlendGlow was officially launched in Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Brunei in April 2021.

When I heard BE International is coming out with a product meant for weight management, I was very excited.

As a women, who doesn’t want to loose weight and have a nice figure, right?

I believe men also want to loose weight and have a nice figure.

What exactly is SlendGlow?

What does it do and what are the benefits of this product?

To answer the above questions, I did my research by studying the SlendGlow product packaging and product catalog in detail and also read all the reference notes on the internet.

The reason I am writing this article is for me to document my findings and to share them with you.

If you are looking for a solution to help with your weight management, hopefully SlendGlow from BE International will be right for you.

Let’s begin!

What is SlendGlow trying to solve?

Every time BE International launched a new product, it did so trying to solve a problem in the market.

For SlendGlow, it is clear that the product is meant as a solution to the issue of obesity.

All of us know obesity is a problem in the world.

But do you know the latest data on obesity?

Let’s check out what the World Health Organization (WHO) has to say about obesity:

Worldwide obesity has nearly tripled since 1975.

World Health Organization

The latest data on worldwide obesity is staggering!

“In 2016, more than 1.9 billion adults, 18 years and older, were overweight. Of these over 650 million were obese” – (WHO obesity and overweight key facts)

Until 2017, over 4 million people die each year as a result of being overweight or obese. – (WHO health topic, obesity)

How would you define an adult who is obese? How would you define an overweight adult?

Again, to answer the above questions, I will quote the information published on WHO website.

Overweight and obesity are defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that may impair health.

Body mass index (BMI) is a simple index of weight-for-height that is commonly used to classify overweight and obesity in adults.

It is defined as a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of his height in meters (kg/m2).

For adults, WHO defines overweight and obesity as follows:

  • overweight is a BMI greater than or equal to 25
  • obesity is a BMI greater than or equal to 30.

BMI provides the most useful population-level measure of overweight and obesity as it is the same for both sexes and for all ages of adults.

However, BMI should be considered a rough guide because it may not correspond to the same degree of fatness in different individuals.

What causes the rise in obesity?

We know that obesity is a real issue but have you thought about what causes the rise in obesity?

The following are what I understood from doing my research online.

Obesity is a modern day problem. Two to three decades ago, obesity is not such a big issue.

The question is why?

The issue has to do with our modern day diet and eating habits.

Let’s look at the diet and eating habits of our parents or grand parents:

1) Eat mainly organic and fresh foods

Some of our parents or grand parents used to plant green vegetables in the village or kampung for their daily consumption.

They even raised their own chicken in backyard chicken coop for poultry and fresh eggs.

2) Low intake of saturated fats

People in the olden days do not consume much of saturated fats.

What are saturated fats?

According to Medline Plus:

“Saturated fat is a type of dietary fat. It is one of the unhealthy fats, along with trans fat. These fats are most often solid at room temperature. Foods like butter, palm and coconut oils, cheese, and red meat have high amounts of saturated fat.”

3) Consume more complex carbohydrates

Back then, people do not have easy access to fast food. Therefore, most of the food they ate are complex carbohydrates such as fruits and vegetables.

4) Lower calories

Since they can’t get fast good easily, the food they consumed have to be cooked and prepared during breakfast, lunch or dinner time which took time and effort.

No easy access to fast food means they don’t tend to over eat therefore reducing their daily calories intake.

5) High in fibers

When they are consuming more fruits and vegetables, it automatically increases their daily fiber intake.

6) Natural seasonings and fermentation process

The food was prepared with less salt, sugar and oil.

7) Conventional cooking methods

Back then, food were prepared using steam, braise and blanch.

These were simple and energy efficient cooking methods.

Modern cooking equipment such as home kitchen oven, air fryer, home deep fryer etc were not easily available.

People on the older days tend to do more labour intensive work. They also tend to indulge more in outdoor activities.

It is clear that the lifestyle of our parents and grand parents is very much different compared to our current diet and lifestyle.

Let’s look at our modern diet and eating habits:

  • We eat more processed fast foods because they are plentiful and easily accessible
  • High intake of saturated fats
  • We are consuming more refined carbohydrates
  • We are also consuming higher calories or energy-densed food
  • We are consuming less in fibers
  • The food we consume has more preservatives and additives in seasonings
  • We use modern unhealthy cooking methods such as deep frying, air fry, grill etc.

Our modern lifestyle is also more sedentary. We don’t spend much time out doors because most of our time are spent inside an air conditioned office where we sit in front of the computer for long hours.

Our children are also spending more time indoors playing games on their smartphones.

It is not surprising the world is experiencing a rise in obesity.

SlendGlow product approval

Since SlendGlow is a weight management / slimming product, many people may be apprehensive to take it.

To be honest, I am one of such person.

The good news is, SlendGlow is a product which has received approval from the health authority in Malaysia to be sold in the market.

From my understanding, it took more than 3 years for BE International to receive the approval from the authority.

SlendGlow has received the approval from National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency (NPRA), Ministry Of Health Malaysia or Bahagian Regulatori Farmasi Negara, Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia (KKM).

SlendGlow Registration Number with NPRA is MAL20056037T.

How to purchase SlendGlow?

If you are interested to buy SlendGlow, it is recommended for you to register as a member of BE International and place your order direct with the company.

Check out the article below for the member’s benefits.

4 benefits of SlendGlow

In the following section, I will cover the benefits of taking the Belixz SlendGlow weight management product by studying the catalog in detail.

The benefits highlighted are:

  • Fat burning booster
  • Appetite control
  • Fat blocker
  • Carb blocker

1. Fat burning booster

The first benefit of SlendGlow is as a fat burning booster. This is done through 2 processes:

i. Enhance heat production (Thermogenesis)

ii. Promote fat metabolism (Lipolysis)

In the first process, botanical extracts are used to promote the browning effect of white fat cells to increase heat production and increase energy output.

SlendGlow with durian

Thermogenesis or the process of heat production in living organisms is influenced by the number of mitochondria in our fat cells.

Mitochondria are commonly known as “the powerhouse of the cell”.

The botanical extracts in SlendGlow helps to increase the number of mitochondria in our white fat cells.

When that happens, it turns our white fat cells into brown fat cells. The brown fat cells are where the body heat production and fat burning happens.

The process of turning our white fat cells into brown fat cells is a natural process.

However, as we grow older, the amount of brown fat cells decline therefore slows down our fat burning process.

I believe that is why as we grow older, it is harder for us to get rid of excess fat on our body.

If you are interested to learn more on the above subject, you can read the research paper published on Nutrition & Metabolism web site call “Flavonoids as inducers of white adipose tissue browning and thermogenesis: signalling pathways and molecular triggers“.

To read the technical research paper, click here.

The second process, botanical extracts are used to help to promote fat metabolism or lipolysis.

The extracts help in the breakdown of fats by burning fats storage and using it as a source of energy.

This is achieved by using ingredients such as:

  • Black ginger extract
  • Green coffee extract
  • Oolong tea extract
  • Green tea extract

The botanical extracts above are scientifically proven to help reduce visceral fat and subcutaneous fat.

2. Appetite control

The second benefit of SlendGlow is to help with appetite control.

For us to understand how botanical extracts can help to control our appetite, we need to know “Leptin“.

What is Leptin?

Leptin or fat controller communicates to the brain that you have enough stored fat, which controls your appetite and signals the body to burn calories.

Therefore, for someone that wants to loose weight, having leptin in their body is a big help.

Unfortunately, leptin in our body has been hijacked by our eating habits.

Let me explain.

People who has an issue with obesity, their body does not recognise “satiety”

Satiety is the feeling of fullness and the suppression of hunger for a period of time after a meal.

The feeling of satiety occurs due to a number of bodily signals that begin when a food or drink is consumed and continue as it enters the gut and is digested and absorbed.

British Nutrition Foundation

For people who are obese, their body will keep craving for food even though they have enough fat storage.

This leads to overeating which will lead to more fat production.

When you have more fat tissues, more leptin is produced.

However, the level of leptin is overwhelming, causing the development of leptin insensitivity.

How can we overcome leptin insensitivity?

We do so with the help of botanical extracts.

Botanical extracts help improve leptin sensitivity so that the brain recognizes satiety and signals the body to burn calories.

Botanical extracts may also help control food craving by suppressing out appetite.

The type of botanical extracts available in SlendGlow which can help with the above are:

  • Black ginger extract
  • Green coffee bean extract
  • Garcinia cambogia extract

3. Fat blocker

The third benefit of SlendGlow botanical extracts is act as fat blocker.

SlendGlow can help to block fat in 2 ways

i. Block fat digestion and absorption

This is achieved through the utilisation of green tea extract (catechins).

Grean tea extract can help to suppress fat digestion and reduce fat absorption in our intestines leading to lesser fat accumulation in our body.

Green tea extract can achieve the above by stopping lipase.

What is lipase?

Lipase is any enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of fats (lipids).

In other words, lipase is an ezyme needed to digest fat.

When lipase is presence, more fat molecules are digested and absorbed into our body.

If we can stop lipase, wouldn’t that stop the digestion of fat in our body?

I believe the green tea extract in SlendGlow is intended to do that.

Tea catechins will inhibit lipase to reduce fat digestion and fat absorption.

When that happens, less fat molecules are digested and absorbed.

The undigested fat is excreted through our feces.

ii. Block fat production

The second way the botanical extract in SlendGlow acts as fat blocker is by inhibiting the formation of matured fat cell from stem cells and reduce fat storage in our body.

The above process is achieved using green coffee bean extract and also green tea extract.

4. Carb blocker

The fourth benefit of SlendGlow is act as carbohydrate blocker.

This benefit is really amazing especially for Asian because we eat rice everyday in our diet.

The botanical extracts in SlendGlow help to inhibit carbohydrate digestion and reduce its absorption into our blood stream.

Lesser carbohydrate absorption means lesser fat accumulation in our body.

Why do we want to inhibit the absorption of carbohydrate?

We want to reduce the absorption of carbohydrate to control the glucose or sugar spike in our body.

If the sugar is not being used, it will be stored in our body as fat.

The increased blood sugar, if not utilised by the body, builds up as fat.

www.medindia.net

What are the botanical extracts in SlendGlow used to inhibit carbohydrate absorption?

The botanical extracts are:

  • White kidney bean extract
  • Mulberry leaf extract
  • Garcinia cambogia extract

My SlendGlow results

On the 10th of March 2021, I bought a carton of SlendGlow when BE International had the privilege buy campaign.

There were only 2900 cartons of SlendGlow available for Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Brunei.

Each carton has 10 boxes of SlendGlow and each box has 30 sachets.

All the stock was sold out within 2 hours!

I was lucky that I managed to buy a carton.

I received my SlendGlow to following week.

Below is a video I made while unboxing my very first carton of SlendGlow by BE International.

Slendglow unboxing video

After I’ve unboxed SlendGlow, I took it immediately after my dinner.

A lot of my friends have asked me.

“Why are you taking SlendGlow since you are so thin already?”

I told them the reason I am taking SlendGlow is because I want to have a flat tummy.

Since the implementation of the Movement Control Order (MCO) in Malaysia back in March 2020, I noticed my belly has been getting bigger.

I didn’t like that because a bulging belly is not so nice when I wear pants or tight skirt.

If you are a women, you’ll know what I mean.

That was my goal of trying SlendGlow…to flatten my belly and to have a reduction in my waist measurement.

Couple of weeks ago, I bought a digital scale.

The scale is able to provide readings such as:

Weight – Measure my total body weight

Average fat – Measure the percentage of body fat mass (weight of the fat) in my body

Visceral fat – Measure the fats found in the abdomen and surrounding vital organs. These fat largely goes unnoticed. High visceral fat level may lead to conditions such as high cholesterol, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

BMI – The is an index to determine if you are in the healthy weight range for your height. 

To monitor any reduction on my waist, I have also taken the measurement of my waist at my elbow level.

Below are my personal experience taking 2 sachets of SlendGlow everyday for the first 7 days.

All the while I wanted to get rid of my belly fat, but it was quite difficult for me although I am a skinny person.

Online marketplaces

Lately, a lot of my blog readers have asked me if they can buy SlendGlow from 3rd party online marketplaces.

My answer is simple, DON’T!

BE International has never authorised anyone to sell SlendGlow on 3rd party online marketplaces such as Lazada, Shopee, Qoo10 etc.

On August 2021, BE International has issued a notice below.

Fake Shiruto Notice

You can read the notice on BE International official Facebook page here.

Shiruto is one of the top selling functional food product from the company.

BE International have received many complains from the public in regards to cheap Shiruto listings on online marketplaces.

BE management took some time to gather information and evidence to build up a case.

Now it has been confirmed, there are people selling fake Shiruto in the market.

Subsequently, BE International has made a police report and issued legal notice to the 3rd party online marketplaces to take down all of the company’s product.

If you see anyone selling BE’s product on online platform, be very careful because you may be unknowingly buying fake product.

Don’t take the risk!

It is not worth buying cheap SlendGlow from online marketplaces because you do not know what is inside the content.

Therefore, register as a member and purchase the product direct from BE International.

Writing this article will be an ongoing project. As I find new information from my research, I will continue to update this page.

    Hi! Is it safe for breastfeeding mothers?

    • Lynn 11/04/2021 at 11:15 am - Reply

      Hi Sofia. I do not recommend SlendGlow for breastfeeding mothers. If you want to regain back your body shape before you had your baby, a better solution is the Aulora Pants with Kodenshi. The pants can be worn during and after your confinement period.

    And can we take 2 sachets per day?

    • Lynn 18/04/2021 at 3:41 pm - Reply

      Hi Jo. SlendGlow is to be taken after your lunch and dinner. Best is not take any food or snacks in between meals so that you do not overconsume daily calories. If you feel hungry, I would suggest you take Slendezmeal drink which has low calories.
