Previously known as Banital, Benetol is a weight loss product that makes many of the same promises that it did before slightly changing its name. Like many other weight loss products and diet pills, Benetol claims to be able to suppress your appetite while increasing your body’s metabolic functions to help you burn fat and get in shape.
But if these claims are no different than those being made by a countless number of other weight loss products, why should Benetol be the one that we choose? Let’s a take a closer look at the product and see if there’s anything special about it that sets it apart form the crowd.
Benetol is produced by Naples TBSI Inc., which operates in Florida and has marketed the product under the name of Banital in the past. There does not seem to be much information regarding the company available online, but it seems that Naples TBSI is not accredited by the Better Business Bureau and that the name of the company’s CEO is Tim Schliesser.
Benetol’s official website seems to no longer be available, so information from the source of the product is scarce. However, it seems that the Benetol line actually consists of two products to be taken together, Benetol’s 4 in 1 Weight Loss Formula and Benetol’s Quick 7 Cleanse. Users are instructed to take three Quick 7 Cleanse pills before breakfast and one 4 in 1 Weight Loss tablet an hour before each meal.
Benetol’s 4 in 1 Weight Loss Formula is comprised of ingredients that are allegedly capable of detoxifying your body to help you lose weight in several ways: by inhibiting starches from being absorbed into your body, regulating blood sugar levels, preventing fatigue and boosting your metabolism.
Benetol’s Quick 7 Cleanse formula is designed to act as a gentle and quick colon cleaner, with ingredients designed to benefit your digestive system as well.
Benetol claims to be clinically tested and proven, but there doesn’t seem to be any evidence anywhere to prove that this is really the case.
Benetol’s 4 in 1 Weight Loss formula is comprised of White Kidney Bean Extract (Phaseolamin), Banaba Leaf, Peppermint Leaf, Tangerine Peel, Lemon Verbena Herb, Licorice Root, Chicory Root Tonic, Ginger Root, Cinnamon Bark, Green Tea Leaf Extract, Chamomile Flower, Fenugreen Seed, Aloe Vera Leaf, Chitosan, Glucomannan, Gymnema Sylvestra Leaf, Citrus Aurantium, Lycium Berry and Bitter Melon Fruit.
Quick 7 Cleanse formula is comprised of Raspberry Leaf, Cayenne Pepper, Ginger Root, Buckthorn Bark, Goldenseal Herb, Rhubarb Root, Fennel Seed, Citrus Pectin, Oat Fiber, Beet Fiber, Apple Fiber, Pea Fiber and Vegetable Cellulose.
Side effects of using Benetol include dramatic bowl movements, upset stomach, dehydration and abdominal pain.
Benetol offers a 30 day money back guarantee.
The type of cleanse that Benetol looks to offer users has not been condoned by the health community as being an effective or even a safe way to lose weight
Apparently, when you purchase Benetol from the official source, you are automatically registered with the company’s “Weigh Less Pay Less Club”, which renews your order and bills your credit card each month without even having to request authorization. Of course, Benetol’s website has made claims that customers could cancel this feature whenever they want, but users have expressed frustration with what a difficult process this apparently is.
Taking laxatives such as the ones found in Benetol’s Quick 7 Cleanse formula for an extended period of time may result in your bowels becoming dependent on the products’ aid, leaving your body incapable of producing bowel movements without their help.
Benetol — or Banital, as the product was previously known as — is a weight loss supplement designed to curb your appetite and boost your metabolism, while regulating your blood sugar levels and cleansing your colon to make your body a clean, healthy place where effective weight loss can occur quickly and easily. While Benetol’s formulas do contain some good ingredients, many aspects of the products have not been clinically tested, and the health community warns against turning to quick cleanses as an easy way to lose weight, claiming the method to be dangerous and ineffective in long term weight loss.
Even with its name change, it seems like Benetrol does very little to distinguish itself from countless competitors who all claim to be capable of the same weight loss effects. One of the only things that makes Benetrol unique is the cleaning process that it offers users: a weight loss method that the health community believes to be neither safe nor effective. Considering the amount of other options that are potentially safer and more effective, it is hard to recommend Benetrol to anyone looking to lose weight in a safe and healthy way.
