Boots Triple Action Slim Aid Review
Boots Triple Action Slim Aid is part of the Boots own-label weight loss range. Other supplements in the range include Boots Carb Control (carb blocking product) and Boots Triple Action (fat blocker). Boots Triple Action Slim Aid is designed to work as a combined appetite suppressant and fat burner.
The formulation also contains some energy boosting ingredients that may help combat any feeling of fatigue that may result from reducing the daily calorie intake.
How Boots Triple Action Slim Aid Works
Appetite suppression is provided by the use of kelp and potato extract. Kelp is probably the more powerful of the two; it suppresses the appetite by acting as a bulking agent.
In common with other bulking agents, kelp works by forming a gelatinous mass in the stomach that dulls the appetite by creating a feeling of fullness.
This helps the user to eat less food and reduce their calorie intake.
The Boots Triple Action Slim Aid blend appears to rely on green tea as the main fat burner.
The blend also contains several ingredients that should boost the metabolism, help ensure the body gets the most from the energy sources available to it, and burn off fat as efficiently as possible.
Each Boots Triple Action Slim Aid tablet provides:
- Green Tea Extract (270 mg): Green tea is healthy ingredient that can promote good health, and has a longstanding reputation as a fat burner.
- Kelp (150mg): Kelp is believed to suppress the appetite by working as a bulking agent. It is also a source of Iodine (known to have a beneficial effect on the thyroid). Thyroid health is essential for a healthy metabolism so kelp is often used to try and promote efficient fat burning.
- Standardised Potato Extract (300 mg): Research conducted on rats indicates potato extract may delay the gastric emptying process and suppress the appetite.
- Vitamin C (40 mg.): Vitamin C is essential for good health, but can be easily lost from the body. This serving here provides 50% of the recommended daily dose, so it is certainly a valuable, if somewhat surprising, inclusion.
- Vitamin B2 (0.7 mg), Vitamin B3 (8 mg), Vitamin B6 (1 mg), Vitamin B12 (1.25 mcg): B vitamins are known to be very important to metabolic health. All of the ones listed here are diet pill regulars that should ensure the fat burning process works as efficiently as possible.
- Pantothenic Acid (3 mg): Also known as Vitamin B5, pantothenic acid can assist the smooth and efficient release of energy from food.
- Biotin (25mcg): Sometimes called vitamin B7, biotin can provide healthy-looking skin, improve the nerves, and assist the metabolism of energy from food.
The blend also contains a few binders and fillers, none of which are particularly noteworthy.

The Bottom Line
The Boots Triple Action Slim Aid blend seems to be a rather expensive multivitamin from our perspective, and although the one tablet a day may help reduce calorie intake very slightly for one meal of the day, and could very well initiate fat burning, this is likely to be insufficient support.
Most people eat several meals a day and those meals might provide more excess calories than the dieter has lost via use of the tablet.
The obvious answer would be to take a tablet prior to the other meals as well, but this would probably be unsafe because an overly high intake of iodine can be dangerous to the health.
Will Boots Triple Action Slim Aid tablets assist weight loss? maybe slightly, but only for a limited part of the day and many dieters may not have the will power to resist overeating when the effects of the supplement wear off.
So, the bottom line is…
