What’s the difference between Skinny Body Max and the Original Skinny Fiber?

The original formula of Skinny Fiber contains digestive enzymes, glucomannan, caralluma, and cha de bugre. The new Skinny Body Max formula includes all of those ingredients except cha de bugre. The creators found ingredients that were more effective than cha de bugre so they removed it and added FIVE new weight loss enhancing ingredients.

This effect usually subsides within a week or two of starting the product. Increasing your water intake during this time helps. Glucomannan may also interact with certain medications [6].

7 – Probiotics

Probiotics are live microorganisms that are included in foods (i.e. yogurt, drinks, etc.) and in dietary supplements.

How it Works:  According to NIH, “many microorganisms help our bodies function properly. For example, bacteria that are normally present in our intestines help digest food, destroy disease-causing microorganisms, and produce vitamins. Large numbers of microorganisms live on and in our bodies. In fact, microorganisms in the human body outnumber human cells by 10 to 1. Many of the microorganisms in probiotic products are the same as or similar to microorganisms that naturally live in our bodies.” [22]

Effectiveness For more than twenty years, studies suggest that probiotic therapy can help treat several gastrointestinal ills [23].

Added Benefits: Probotics may also delay the development of allergies in children and treat and prevent vaginal and urinary infections in women.

Side Effects: Probiotics have proven to be safe in healthy adults. In some cases, mild digestive symptoms such as gas were reported. People with serious underlying medical conditions should get a physician’s approval before taking probiotics since reports linking them to infections have been reported.

Bottom Line: Multiple studies suggest that probiotics can help various areas of health.

Digestive Enzymes

digestive enzymesDigestive enzymes assist the body in the breakdown of food. The human body makes approximately 22 different enzymes and Skinny Body Max contains seven different ones:

  • Amylase is an enzyme that helps digest carbohydrates. It is produced mainly in the pancreas and the glands that make saliva.
  • Protease is the digestive enzyme needed to digest protein and eliminate toxins.
  • Lipase is an enzyme that the body uses to break down fats in food.
  • Glucoamylase breaks the bonds near the ends of large carbohydrates, releasing maltose and free glucose.
  • Papin is an enzyme derived from papaya that digests large protein molecules to smaller peptides and amino acids.
  • Cellulase is an enzyme that acts on the cellulose (fiber) portion of carbohydrates and is not produced by the human body.
  • Bromelain is an enzyme derived from pineapple that digests large protein molecules to smaller peptides and amino acids.


Suggested Use:

How do you take Skinny Body Max? The product instructions read to “Take this product (2 capsules) with at least 8 ounces (a full glass) of water or other fluid, 30 minutes before meals.”

Based on my vast experience with the original Skinny Fiber product, I recommend taking 2 capsules with 12-16 ounces of water about 45 minutes before meals. Why? Because water is what activates the glucomannan fiber in this product so drinking a little more water, in my opinion, helps the product achieve maximum effectiveness. Waiting a little longer also helps ensure the glucomannan has had time to fully expand in your stomach and that appetite suppressing qualities are fully engaged.

Many product users – including myself – have found drinking 12-16 ounces of water with the product 45 minutes before your two largest meals yields optimal results, especially with a healthy diet and exercise.
