The Importance of EFSA
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) is an agency of the European Union that provides independent scientific advice and communication on existing and emerging risks associated with the food chain, created by European Regulation 178/2002.
The Authority’s work covers all matters with a direct or indirect impact on food and feed safety, including nutrition. For more information about EFSA’s tasks on nutrition and health claims, click here .
The European Commission has adopted a list of 222 EU approved health claims for use on foods, which are permitted for use in commercial communications to consumers. Regulation 432/2012 (establishing the list of approved health claims) was published in the Official Journal on 25 May 2012 and came into effect on 14 June 2012. The list itself will come into effect six months later, on 14 December 2012. The permitted health claims are available to be checked on line on the Community Register.
The move gives legal clarity to food business operators as to claims which can be made, subject to compliance with the stated conditions on the use of each particular claim. In addition it will give consumers confidence in that the claims have been rigorously assessed and approved at a European level and avoids claims that are misleading.
From 14 December 2012 on, products carrying claims, which have been rejected by EFSA would need to be withdrawn from the market (within the European Union).
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) says that Konjac, the main ingredient in Slimjac™, has been demonstrated to help you eat less, help with weight loss and weight management as part of a healthy eating plan.

A number of independent clinical studies also show that people taking Fabuless™, another ingredient in Slimjac™, not only eat less but also feel pleasantly satisfied after eating.

What is Slimsticks?
Slimsticks is a Strawberry flavour weight management aid that helps you feel instantly full, which delays hunger so helping you to feel fuller for longer and to eat less.
Slimsticks contains Konjac, an EFSA approved ingredient, which comes from Konjac plants grown in Japan and South East Asia.
With feeling hungry and ‘lack of will-power’ cited as the main reasons why we fall so regularly off the diet wagon, Slimsticks can really help by quickly getting to work to help stop you thinking about food.
Slimsticks will help you to:
- Eat Less
- Reduce your weight
- Manage your weight
Slimsticks allows you to take control of your food intake and your weight. Not only does Slimsticks help you eat less but it also:
- Has no side effects
- Aids portion control
- Comes in a convenient and discreet stick for ultimate portability
- Comes with no complex meal programme or strict routines
- Allows you to still eat the food you enjoy
Once taken, Slimsticks can help you quickly feel full as well as reduce your appetite, cut out the snacks and prevent yo-yo dieting. It is an effective way to achieving a healthier lifestyle without the need to constantly diet or having the inconvenience of sticking to diets that restrict what you eat.

How Slimsticks works
Slimsticks is a very powerful weight management tool that starts to work as soon as you take it.
Slimsticks works in two phases.
Once Slimsticks is consumed, the konjac expands in the stomach making you feel full very quickly. With more liquid consumption the feeling of fullness continues.
This is physical reaction and not a placebo effect.
After three to four hours once fully absorbed into your lower intestinal system, the palm and oats oils get to work. Your brain senses undigested fat (see What’s in Slimsticks) telling you are still full or not too hungry. In technical terms this is known as the ‘Ileal brake mechanism’ and this satiety effect stops you over eating.
Slimsticks then finally digests through your colon.
Uniquely, these two phases work independently but complement each other ensuring that Slimsticks can help you reduce your weight or used to manage your weight as part of a healthy eating plan.
We strongly recommend drinking two additional glasses of water as this ensures Slimsticks reaches your stomach quicker, immediately expanding the Konjac and so starts to work faster.
With more liquid consumption the feeling of fullness continues because it feeds the Konjac, drinking plenty of liquid keeps hydrating and expanding the Konjac so keeping you feeling full.
What’s more Slimsticks is caffeine free and has no adverse side effects
How to take Slimsticks
Take one Slimsticks three times a day approximately 20 minutes before mealtimes.
Whilst you can take Slimsticks by mixing with water in a glass, we have found that the best way of taking Slimsticks is to empty the contents of one sachet into an empty 500ml water bottle, add roughly 100ml of water or skimmed milk (tastes really great with skimmed, Soya or Almond milk. Like a mini milk shake). Screw the top back on and shake well until the powder is fully dissolved and drink immediately.
It is very important to then fill the bottle with water and drink fairly quickly.
This way Slimsticks quickly reaches your stomach, begins to expand and so starts to work straight away.
If you don’t drink it straight away the Slimsticks will begin to thicken, which is what it is designed to do once it reaches your stomach.
Drinking around two litres of fluid a day will help expand the Slimsticks, keeping you feeling full as well as stopping you from constantly being tempted to snack so you are more likely to eat less.
After a short period, and because of the timing of taking Slimsticks, you will find that the palm oil and oat oil is still effective when you take your next Slimsticks. Because of this overlap the sense of fullness continues.
This is what makes Slimsticks so unique and is unlike any product on the market.
