Zantrex Skinny Stix Review
Zantrex Skinny Stix is a supplement manufactured in Utah by Zoller Laboratories.
It’s produced in powder format and is intended to be mixed with water and consumed as a drink.
The flavour choices are Electric Lime, Tangy Tangerine, and Berry Fusion, but many online stores only appear to stock Berry Fusion.
The powder comes in neat little one-dose sachets that have a stick-like appearance and there are 21 sachets per pack. This is a seven-day supply.
How Zantrex Skinny Stix Are Designed to Work
The manufacturer does not provide much information about the product, but the usage directions suggest it can be uses as an appetite suppressant, an energy booster, or a mood enhancer. Zantrex are also responsible for Zantrex 3

A Closer Look at the Formulation and What it May Do
Each Skinny Stix sachet contains 3.7g of powder, and niacin accounts for around 6mg of the content. It’s a good addition because it can boost athletic performance and reduce fatigue. A proprietary blend accounts for a further 1024mg of the sachet content. The rest of the formulation appears to consist of “other ingredients”.
The Zantrex Proprietary Blend Contains:
- Guarana (seed) Extract
- Coffee (bean) Extract
- Cacao (seed) Extract
- Yerba Mate (leaf) Extract
- Damiana (leaf) Extract
- Stevia (leaf) Extract
- Rice (seed) Powder
- Cayenne (fruit) Powder
- Chlorella (algae) Powder
- Grape (seed) Extract
- Blueberry (fruit) Powder
- Cranberry (fruit) Powder
- Sour Cherry (fruit) powder
- Plum (fruit) Powder
- Strawberry (fruit) Powder
- Raspberry (fruit and seed) Concentrate
- Bilberry (fruit) Powder
- Grape (fruit) Powder
- Blueberry (fruit) Extract
- Bilberry (fruit) Extract
Other Ingredients: Sucralose, Dextrose, Honey Powder, Malic Acid, Silica, Citric Acid, Red Cabbage Powder (for colour), Natural Flavours.
Although some fruits (such as acai, African mango, and garcinia cambogia) can help accelerate weight loss, none of the fruits in the Skinny Stix formulation are known to have this ability. They have probably been added for flavour. Cayenne is a good ingredient though. It has proven appetite suppressing abilities and is equally valuable as a fat burner.
Looking at the ingredients involved, this appears to be a caffeine-powered supplement. Guarana, yerba mate, coffee bean extract, and cacao, are all caffeine providers. This may help the product to boost energy levels, and research shows a link between caffeine consumption and weight loss.
Customer Feedback and What it Suggests
A few average reviews read:
[plain]”The flavour is a little too sweet for my taste, but I used skinny stix for a week and lost 1kg. Kind of an expensive way to do it though.” [/plain]
[plain]”This is a dreadful product. It gave me stomach cramps and jitters, but I stuck with it for a week. It never curbed my appetite and I didn’t lose any weight.”[/plain]
[plain]”Fantastic product! I drink it three times a day and all my hunger cravings are gone. It also given me a ton of extra energy. Totally love it!”[/plain]
[plain]”I still felt hungry all the time and this stuff tastes bad. Go try something else, this is no good.”[/plain]
The flavour seems to be a problem for many customers. A lot of people say the drink is too sweet and sickly, and we read a few reviews written by people who said they noticed a “chemically under-taste”. Some customers say the product worked for them, but other say it did not.
The differing results could be because some customers were eating right and getting plenty of exercise, while others are trying to rely on the product, but the formulation is lacking in “power ingredients” and is unlikely to be particularly strong.

Places to Buy Zantrex Skinny Stix
A seven-day supply of Zantrex Skinny Stix costs USD$ 29.99 (AUD$ 39.90) from the manufacturers website. This is expensive and a further charge is applied for shipping. It is possible to make a slight saving by buying from certain third-party retailers, such as Lucky Vitamin and Walgreens, but many sites do not offer all the flavour options.
After Sales Support
The contact page on the manufacturer’s website provides a contact form, telephone number, and mailing address. So the customer support department can be contacted in a number of ways.
Zantrex Skinny Stix is also backed by a 30-day money back guarantee. Bearing in mind the fact that each pack only lasts for seven days, this should allow customers enough time to evaluate the product and then take action if they are less than satisfied with the results.
Final Round-Up and Conclusion
What we have here is a supplement that will cost over AUD$ 40 per week to use (with shipping). It contains a lot of ingredient that will offer no benefit and the ones that have value are included in unspecified quantities.
The ingredient profile is incapable of providing an idea of how well Skinny Stix is likely to work. Customer feedback offers little help. It is a mix of good and bad and some people say the product made them feel ill.
We cannot totally slam this product by saying it won’t work, but nor can we endorse it. However, we can point out there are superior options available at a fraction of the price.
Recommended Alternative Diet Pill
Although a different type of product to Skinny Stix we recommend PhenQ without hesitation. PhenQ is designed to help it’s users lose the maximum amount of weight in the minimum possible time – and safely.
PhenQ is without gimmick and without hype – it does what it says on the tin. It can be bought direct from the manufacturer and without prescription.
