Accelis is a weight loss product that promotes itself as being one of the most convenient to take and 100% stimulant free. There is a lot of information to be found regarding Accelis both on their website and independently.The official website is extremely professional looking and well made and includes a video presentation of their commercial. There is a good, comprehensive FAQ section and an invitation for the user to be featured as one of the product’s ‘Weight loss Makeovers’. Being used as an Accelis success story, the customer has the ‘possibility’ of compensation and the chance to be in magazine advertisements and on T.V. Although the website doesn’t have a separate testimonial section, some of them can be viewed on the ‘Weight loss makeover’ page and the commercial. In terms of clinical evidence, the makers of Accelis cite studies that were done on the key Accelis ingredient, which is Corosolic acid, derived from a plant called Lagerstroemia Speciosa found mainly in the Philippines. The makers of Accelis also mention a clinical trial in which the participants taking their product lost on average 10.65lbs over 8 weeks, which is a medically safe amount to lose for most people.
Accelis – Product Description
As noted before, the key ingredient in Accelis is Corosolic acid, which is included in the products proprietary blend. Corosolic acid has the effect of supporting blood sugar levels in the body, achieving a healthy level of glucose, essential in aiding weight loss. Other substances included are three types of tea, green, oolong and white, all of which are decaffeinated. Chamomile and passionflower extracts are added to aid in relaxation, plus there is an amount of Soy phospholipids, a substance thought to prevent certain types of cancer.There are a lot of non-medicinal ingredients that make up each capsule including gelatin, soybean oil, beeswax, shellac glaze and colouring. The pill comes in a ‘soft gel’ form, which allows for a faster absorption of the ingredients and may be easier for some consumers to take than other types of pill. The manufacturers recommend that 2 gel caps are taken with water at night which, due to the absence of stimulants and the addition of relaxing herbs, will not affect the quality of sleep.

Accelis – The Bottomline
Although it is nice to see a stimulant free product, the flip side is, is that it is very ‘low performing’. So, even though Accelis is relatively inexpensive, costing on average $22.95 for a 20 day supply (the price varies depending on the retailer), it would be a waste of money for something that did not work. This product may be a good supplement for anyone aiming to lose weight through diet and exercise, and it would certainly benefit those who needed something to help them relax at night.
