Slim FX by AX: the truth, an independent review
Age: 26, student, runner (~50miles a week), strength training at one times a week.
Training since 6 years, training with supps since 4 years.
Other fatburners and PWO´s experience: SlimXtreme, OxyElitePro, StimulatX (MeTIQ based), DS Adrenaline, Jack3d, PES Shift and much more..
Only supps currently are:
Xtend (2 scroops before and after wortkout)
Slim FX serving: immediately upon waking, 2 pills on empty stomache.
Raiting: Slim FX 7/10 (old Slim Xtreme 9/10)
The energy I get in the first 2 hours on FX comes on very smoothly and clean, the full effects kicks after 40min.
Good drive and motivation too. Im my opinion the mind-muscle-connection on 1,3dimeth and other PEA products is better.
There is never ever the "superman-feeling" like on SlimXtreme, but enough energy to have a soild workout.
Raiting: Slim FX 8/10 (old Slim Xtreme 10/10)
In this category FX works fantastic all day long, I can eat, but must not.
If I have a sensation of hunger I eat only a little and than: feel fill.
Raiting: Slim FX 2/10 (old Slim Xtreme 10/10)
Greatly disappointed in this category. I am a student and hoped I can use Slim FX as a study aid.
On FX I have a ittle bit of a headache and trouble concentrating, I can not concentrate on one thing (scientific work at pc, write a housework...),
even after my workout I´ve problems. Therefore FX is not a option as a study aid...will try it with nootropics later.
For training workouts the concentraion is good, for mental working not.
Raiting: Slim FX 3/10 (old Slim Xtreme 9/10)
Greatly disappointed in this category too. There is defenetly a mood lift afer 30-40min, but the mood lift I
get with my morning coffe and 1g Tryosine on a empty stomach is much better. Rest time on FX I feel ok/normal,
but not in a great mood, its more a "cold" mood. The come down after 4-5 hourse is very nice, it puts me into
Maybe its not enouth PEA in one Pill.
- enhance libido (because of the rauwolscine?!)
- no negative sides!- and i think thats something special on the market, if you compare it with 1,3dimeth based products
PRO´s (for me):
- best appetitt supperessant on the market without a crash
- very clean and smooth energy for about 5-6 hours
- unique feeling and is unlike any other energy product on the market
- (almost) no side effects
CON´s (for me):
- I am very dissappointed with mood enhnachment and mental clarity
- sick and jittery feeling (with 2 pills), majorly until 2-3 hours after dosing in the morning
- problems with the dosage: 1 pill isn´t enough, with 2 pills I feel sick!
- no dopaminergic feeling like on SlimXtreme, its more an adrenaline feeling which sucks im my opinion
(feels same like too much coffeine at the beginning)
- no duration of 12 hours, I can only feel it clearly 6 hours
- headache and trouble concentrating = no study aid
Overall raiting: Slim FX 5/10 (old Slim Xtreme 10/10)
Its a good alternative in comparison to the other products on
the market, but its never ever a "wonder pill".
For me SlimFX has not more than 50% of the original SilmXtreme, because
its not a mild norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor.
Still much work for AX with the next version....

Nice little review there.
The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES
12-04-2011, 03:10 PM
Thanks guys... I´ll report again in one week...
Serving: 2 pills in the morning
12-04-2011, 04:19 PM
Thank you for the thorough review... I just ordered some last week....should be here soon. I'll have to see if I notice some of the patterns you mentioned. Excited to try it!

If you would eat a little something before taking 2 caps in the morning it would probably help with the jittery feeling. It may also extend the 5-6 hours of energy to say...8. Just a thought.

Slim FX will never be a stable for me, it's "too mild" for xtreme GTD (Getting Things Done) where SX in this regard were "pharm medication" for getting off your ass. Plus, I liked the xtreme lack of fatigue (sleeping for 4 hours for like a week). btw, SX was never a stable (too strong in the long run) but at least it made SENSE when you took it for a couple days in a row, for achieving the impossible in your life.
Fyi, ymmv, don'ttrythisathomekids, currently I'm on a smaller dose on SX "stacked" with 1 pill of Slim FX + a few grams of aniracetam, with stuff like taurine, inderal, and fish oil to help the 'cardiovascular system' and blood pressure and today I live on low calorie energy drinks and electrolytes (be careful with too much insulin stimulation from food!) and this is actually VERRRRY nice, if ever there was "THE zone" you could work/be in, I've humiliated it already...

Which stimulant x did you use? the latest release?
it sounds like this might be the better option for you in regards to energy and focus.
the extreme positive of the slimfx which you noted is the appetite suppression. energy also is a key factor, but it is also a key factor in stimulant x.
sorry to hear the sfx didn't go as well as you had hoped. I would try stimx based on the factors you wish to obtain.

Ax announced that from the FX testers group they concluded that FX was 'bout ~70% of the "old SX", I won't argue with that but just say the remaining "30%" was probably what MADE the difference.
For newcomers FX is a nice long-lasting stim, however for the SX diehard's , FX won't do it.....

I find it funny that no one (reps in particular) is trying to give the OP any advise on what he could possibly try to make his experience with SFX any better.

At AX, we'd rather have the honest reviews, it shows both ends of the spectrum. Not everyone is going to respond to every product on the market. Look at creatine, some people seem to get a good boost in strength from it, whereas others do not. Yet creatine is one of the most extensively studied products on the market.
Also, his review was fair, and his big areas in ratings that were low were the Mood and Focus/Concentration. That is something that tends to be on the user and how well they respond/react to different ingredients. Food can definitely play a factor here, but as a team we have no intentions to run the "Blame Game" on the OP and decide it's his issue rather than him not particularly responding well to the supplement.
The other issue is with comparing what was to what is. The product is going to be different because this version was formulated with different ingredients. Unfortunately, the old product was pulled and will no longer be around or ever come back, this is Slim FX and what is, and is what's hear to stay.

Trust me I know far too well about what was.

Thank you for the review, I needed that so to take this pills. Great work for AX.
I completely agree with the comments, that SlimXtreme would never come back and of course it can't be like the last version. There was something so wrong and so beautiful about SX.
Thank you all. I'll have mine maybe next week and I'll leave my feedback here.
