Don’t Take Risks! 5 Natural Japanese Diet Products
We all know that dieting is a marathon, not a sprint, and there are no magic bullets out there– no matter what some companies tell you!
That said, there definitely are some products out there that can support you as you diet. Whether it’s tea extracts, fiber, yeast, or even clothing, there are plenty of safe and healthy ways to give your weight loss efforts a boost.
But, there’s a reason to be a little spooked about buying diet supplements online, especially from overseas. We often hear reports about unethical companies selling fake products, or manufacturers including dangerous, unreported drugs in supposedly “natural” pills.
This could be why Japanese diet products are so popular worldwide. Japan’s strict safety and commercial regulations, as well as their standards for quality, ensure that products are safe, pure, and regulated.
Here are five safe and healthy product ranges to help you in your weight loss efforts! For this article, I have selected only products from major brands with great reviews from Japanese customers.
Fancl Calorie Limit and Perfect Slim
Fancl is one of Japan’s most trusted brands They might be best known outside Japan for their amazing skincare products like the Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil, which is consistently our bestselling skincare product at Wonect, but their diet and health line is also mega-popular. In fact, Fancl was the brand that made green juice so popular here!
Calorie Limit is definitely the most popular, and is designed to (you guessed it!) limit some of the calories you eat from being absorbed. It contains extracts from metabolism-boosting green tea, plus mulberry leaf and kidney bean, which are both said to block carbs. It also contains gymnema sylvestre extract, an ingredient that has been shown to prevent cravings for sweet foods and have other weight loss effects.
Perfect Slim, on the other hand, is designed to boost your energy and metabolism so that your body burns more energy throughout your day. It green tea catechins, piper longum pepper, and l-carnitine. I took and reviewed Fancl Perfect Slim for this blog– you can check out my review here!
I gave a thorough run down of the full Svelty range in my recent complete guide to the line. This is one of our most popular range of weight loss products with our customers because they’re high quality, affordable, and best of all, they take a range of different approaches to weight loss that all work around ensuring your body is performing at great condition. Whether it’s harnessing the carb-blocking power of yeast, or ensuring your stomach flora is performing at olympic levels, the Svelty range is definitely worth looking into.
Thier most popular product with our customers is is Pakkun, a yeast-based supplement that is designed to break down carbs before your body can absorb it.
DHC Diet Supplements
DHC is one of the best known manufacturers of health care products in Japan — they’re in every pharmacy. Personally I swear by their super affordable and effective Vitamin B mix for skin issues. Of course they make a range of diet products, including their popular Protein Diet range of food and drinks.
DHC Diet Power contains a great mix of diet-boosting ingredients, including coleus forskolin extract, l-carnitine, white kidney bean extract, fermented bagasse, α-lipoic acid, citrus aranium extract powder, valine, leucine, and isoleucine. In other words, it’s covering a lot of bases!
This one is perfect for anyone not sure what kind of diet supplement to take. It contains a mix of carb blockers, metabolism boosters, amino acids, and fiber, so you know you are getting a good range of effects.
DHC Force Collie also contains coleus forskolin extract. Never heard of it before? It’s a botanical extract that can help boost metabolism and encourage fat loss. Like the Fancl Perfect Slim supplement, the manufacturer recommends combining this with some light exercise for best results.
Also, some studies have shown that it works even better for men, so for any gentlemen who are tossing up between this and Fancl Perfect Slim, I’d recommend this one!
Yamamoto Kampo Flow Series
Kampo is the name of Japanese herbal medicine, which has been practiced in Japan since the 7th century. There are three types of teas designed to minimise salt, fat, and sugar. The Fat Flow Tea is the most popular amongst our customers. It contains a blend of tochu tea, cassia seed tea, barley, brown rice, oolong tea, pu’er tea, mulberry leaf tea, licorice, green tea extract, and kelp. Reviewers say the blend tastes delicious, meaning it’s super easy to make it a habit.
If you’re looking for a weight loss boost, try including a cup of these teas with your meal. It’s also said that slowly sipping warm liquids like tea or soup before or during meals helps you feel fuller, too!
If you’re not into taking supplements at all, Japan has a huge range of rollers, massages, and creams that are said to help aid weight loss.
One of the more comfy and low-effort ones are the above compression socks for sleeping. These are long socks that have gentle compression to help improve swelling and bloating in the legs. Some also claim that over time they also train the legs to look slimmer, kind of like waist training (but not as restrictive!)
If you’re wondering, yes, they’re the same kind of the thing you might wear on an airplane, but a lot cuter looking. Like compression socks, they start a little firmer around the feet, and then gradually gets looser towards your knees and thighs. This helps encourage circulation and prevent fluid retention, making your legs appear slimmer. They’re also great for people with sluggish circulation (cold hands and feet, anyone?), or anyone who has tired legs and feet after working on your feet.
There are a whole range of lengths and types, and a few different brands that make them, but Slim Walk and Dr Scholl Medi Qtto are the two most popular. They have warming types for the winter, and cooling types in the summer, so they don’t just help the appearance of your legs, they can help you feel more comfy in bed too!
