NV Clinical claims to be the fastest way to lose weight via a clinically backed supplement. It’s mentioned that 2 clinical studies have shown NV Clinical to be effective in just 2 weeks.
It features 2 proprietary blends, one of which is for their Weight Loss Complex, the other for their Superfruit Complex. The website doesn’t offer much information on this brand, though they do add an ingredient list and they offer direct purchases. Its spokeswoman is the reality TV star Tami Roman; she claims to have lost 7 pounds in 2 weeks, and a total of 25 pounds in total. So are there any reliable results from this brand? How effective were the results from the clinical studies? To discover all this and more, you can read this comprehensive NV Clinical review.
|Indian Sphaeranthus Flower||Mangosteen rind||Caffeine Anhydrous||Cranberry Extract|

|Polyvinyl Alcohol||Macrogol||Red 40||Talc|
|Titanium Dioxide||Blue 2||Stearic Acid||Croscarmellose Sodium|
Indian Sphaeranthus Flower: Herb with several claimed benefits. There’s not enough evidence to show if it’s effective in any way. The College of Pharmacy performed a study which showed not enough information exists about the:
“clinical, toxicity, and phytoanalytical properties”
Insufficient evidence exists about its use or possible side effects. There’s also no studies performed on what an accurate dosage should be for safety.
Mangosteen Rind: Tropical fruit commonly used as a natural diarrhea treatment. Web MD mentions that in terms of medical benefits there’s:
“no scientific information”
There’s also not enough information available to showcase whether or not it’s safe.
Caffeine Anhydrous: 225 mg of dehydrated caffeine are offered in a 3 capsule serving. At the 2 suggested servings you’re getting 450 mg of caffeine, which is 50 mg more than the recommended daily limit. This ingredient is used as a way to produce energy and increase metabolism. Caffeine only has short term weight loss benefits, and in long term use it loses all its positive effects other than being able to prevent sleep. Possible side effects may include:
Goji: A red fruit that is native to Asia. It’s said to treat diabetes, fever, eye problems, and diabetes. Since it’s a berry, it has similar nutrients to other berries. It’s also used as a way to lose weight, but not enough studies have been performed to show this benefit.
The FDA has sent companies warning letters about making false health claims about Goji berries.
Red 40: A dye with no nutritional value, it’s only added as a way to make the product more colorful. It’s also been criticized by some for causing ADHD. The Center for Science in the Public Interest tried banning this dye over concerns of it leading to tumors and for its toxic effects.
It was once banned by Norway, Switzerland, Denmark, Belgium, and France due to health concerns.
Blue 2: Blue food dye used inside of capsules. It can be harmful to the respiratory tract when inhaled. It’s also an irritant to the eyes and skin, when handling it it’s advised to use safety goggles and gloves to avoid contamination.
There are 2 forms of food dye which have been criticized due to their potential toxic effects.
As far as weight loss, the current science says that neither of the 2 ingredients added in the Weight Loss Matrix have been proven to be effective or safe.
There’s still a lack of evidence on the use of these additives. The company also fails to provide any explanation as to why any of these ingredients exist. So the quality suffers from the use of either unverified or unnecessary additives
The company sells their 120 capsule bottle for $39.95 plus $9.95 shipping and handling. At the full recommended amount of 6 capsules a day, the daily cost is:
$49.99/20= $2.49 for a days’ worth.
For unknown reasons the company has failed to describe their ingredients, nor do they provide the 2 clinical studies they claim this product has.
Without these key details, this product remains a costly brand which has not been proven to work. Many of the ingredients are added to coat the pills, and there’s’ also added potentially harmful food coloring. The added superfruits aren’t for weight loss, and the only 2 weight loss ingredients have no backing from sites legitimate health and medical websites.
2 Clinical Studies
The front of these packages declares 2 clinical studies have shown that NV Clinical is effective for weight loss.
The direct quote is that:
“Key ingredients backed by 2 clinical studies”
These studies are never shown anywhere. I couldn’t find them linked or even mentioned at all. It’s unknown if they tested a few of the ingredients or all of them. Without these key studies it’s impossible to determine if the makers are telling the truth.
The website is really limited on information. There’s not much in terms or proof, though there are multiple claims.
Clinical studies can sometimes be biased or difficult to follow. Some studies are performed on only a handful of people which isn’t representative of a full population.
Other studies may have an extremely limited amount of calories or perhaps strenuous exercise. It’s too many factors which may promote more weight loss than simply just the ingredients added.
Their official spokeswoman is Tami Roman, and the website admits her loss of 25 pounds and 7 pounds in 2 weeks is not typical for all customers.
The website also mentions that she exercised and ate only 1350 calories a day for 15 weeks. This is a form of starvation that is greatly under the advised average of 2,000 calories a day set forth by the FDA.
Web MD mentions that the daily caloric intake to maintain weight should be:
19-30: 1800-2000 calories a day.
31-50: 1800 calories a day.
19-30: 2400-2600 a day.
31-50: 2200-2400 calories a day
This is advised for sedentary people; moderately active people need to include up to 200 calories or so more. Extremely active people add almost double that.
For the average woman between 19 and 30 who’s not active and wants to keep weight, it’s advised to get at least 1800 calories. Tami Roman ate 1350, which means she still ate 450 calories less than the smallest allowed calories for a sedentary young woman. She also included exercise, which can be another great determining factor in weight loss.
It’s unknown if her caloric restriction was the sole reason for weight loss. It’s also no verified how many calories she lost via exercise.
The official website does not mention the company name, nor do they explain where their customer service representative can be reached.
After some research it was revealed they’re owned by PMA Fulfillment, which is a company that delivers products. They can be reached through the following:
Phone Number: (480) 829-0131
Address: 8601 W Washington St Suite 200
Tolleson, Arizona 85353
The company mentions they offer returns within 30 days, but that the $9.95 shipping to and from isn’t paid off.
It’s unknown why the official website is secretive about the company name.
Here’s a few of the common reported opinions available online:
“Not only did I not lose weight I gained”
“did not lose anything and I workout”
“Horrible. Makes you feel like you will pass out”
“doesn’t work even if you follow the diet and exercise plan”
There are many complaints from people who actually gained weight. Some mention that they included diet and exercise and yet they still failed to see any results.
People also report symptoms, and there’s many people claiming this product is running a scam.
There’s a lot of interesting points to consider about NV Clinical:
NV Clinical has been largely criticized by customers for it causing side effects, not being effective, and some mention they gained weight.
The company also fails to provide their claimed clinical studies. Also, their spokesperson only lost weight via an incredibly restrictive calorie reduction. The brand features many additives which are not proven to be effective for weight loss. The added 450 mg of caffeine is above the advised daily limit for safe caffeine consumption as well.
