Dr Oz: Montel Williams’ Diet Supplement

We’ve all heard it before, ways to lose belly fat without diet or exercise. In this segment, Dr Oz brought back Montel Williams to give his Dr Oz Fans a cutting-edge supplement that may just give you a new way to think about dieting. According to Montel, SafSlim, which is a supplement that contains saffron oil, will help you blast away that gut and trim it up before you can say belly blaster! SafSlim is sold on television and coast-to-coast and is endorsed by popular ex-tv talk show host, Montel Williams, who stated the product transformed his body.

Dr Oz: Safflower Supplement for Weight Loss

Safflower is one of the world’s oldest plants. It was discovered in Egypt over 4000 years ago and today is used in cooking oils as well as supplements. Some of its claims include blasting stubborn belly fat and curbing hour appetite.

Montel stated that he tried the product first and then because he believed in it so much, he became a paid spokesperson for SafSlim, a supplement that uses safflower to trim your tummy. The questions are; Is it safe? Will it really change your body forever?

Dr Oz did his homework on safflower, more specifically SafSlim and stated that at first glance, the product seemed too good to be true, so he asked Montel how it affected his body.

Dr Oz: SafSlim – How It Works

Montel state that nine months ago he purchased this product and used it for 11 weeks. Almost immediately, he lost 2-inches off his waist. Montel worked out every day and changed his eating habits long ago, but this product gave him that extra boost. Over the last 40 days, Montel stated he had been traveling and went off SafSlim for a week. An inch came back. When he started SafSlim again, the inch was gone almost immediately. Montel told Dr Oz that he has changed nothing else in his life and saw results, which was why he believed in the product so much. Montel was so impressed with SafSlim, he reached out to the president of the company and asked to become a spokesperson. Montel made it clear that he was never approached, it was him who inquired about it.

Montel mentioned to the audience that he took his shirt off in Dr Oz’s dressing room. Montel wanted to show him how well the product worked. Dr Oz asked Montel to show the audience how well the product worked, so he asked Montel to lift his shirt. (At first, Montel declined, but agreed when Dr Oz said he would show his rock hard abs too.) Montel stated that had only been back on SafSlim for 5 days, but would show the audience his stomach anyway. (Which guy did you think looked better, Dr Oz or Montel?)

Montel asked Dr Oz to taste SafSlim. It was in a shot type glass and he and Dr Oz took the shot. Dr Oz noted the liquid was creamy and tasted like a sherbet popsicle. Montel mentioned that SafSlim came with a spoon and in order to get the full benefits, you should take the recommended 2 Tbsp per day. (Also suggested to take ½ hour before you eat.) Montel noted that SafSlim is not a silver bullet product, you still need to work out and eat right, however, if you take it as suggested, it will work.

Dr Oz: Safflower Oil Diet

-SafSlim product

-Safflower oil supplements: look for about 6 grams of linoleic acid. Also contains omega 6 fat.

-Safflower oil: 2 tsp daily. Look for 7-10 grams to get the key elements you need.

-Eat sunflower seeds: 3 tsps daily.

Dr Oz showed an animation: inside the belly there is fat, which lies on organs. The digested food mixes with bile. You can block fats from being absorbed, but when it doesn’t, fat cells are giving up fat and spewing it out. The big question, what happened to the fat? Where did it go?

Dr Oz: Safflower Oil SafSlim Review

Dr Oz introduced Dr. Martha Belury, who believed safflower does help you get rid of belly fat. Dr Oz was also sure to mention that Dr. Belury received a $10, 000 grant from the company, but only after her studies were completed. (What do you think of that?) Dr. Belury stated that you don’t lose weight, but the fat is gone. Women lost the body fat instead of the weight. How is that possible? Dr. Belury’s study was done in post-menopausal women who were generally obese. According to Dr. Belury, safflower oil contained omega 6 fatty acids, which contained a beneficial effect to trick, or boost, fat cells to get rid of fat.

Being the skeptical doctor that he is, Dr Oz asked experts for their opinion. While he didn’t send the experts the product, he sent the research and the review from the AHA (American Heart Association.) Check out the results below.

Dr. David Katz, MD—no, he didn’t think saffron oil could help blast belly fat
Dr. Caroline Appovian, MD-yes
Dr. Roizen, MD- no, he wouldn’t bother
Dr. Russell Greenfield, MD –maybe. (Way to be decisive, doc!) According to Dr. Greenfield, who was in the studio, when you look at research, there are some challenges to understanding the data. Omega 6 is believed to be pro-inflammatory, unlike omega 3, however, we need them both. Dr. Greenfield noted that you couldn’t really be deficient in omega 6 and if that’s the case, why were there still obese people? (Okay, good point!)

Dr Oz suggested having a healthy balance of both omega 3 and omega 6. Doctor Oz’s bottom line: He has a 30-page research report on the subject and has compelling data to believe saffron oil is doing something. Doctor Oz encourages folks to try it for 3 months to see if it works for you. He is going to try it via sunflower seeds. As expected, he will continue to keep taking his omega 3s. Overall, by using sunflower oils in place of bad fats (trans fats), across the board, it will be a smart thing to do.

Comments to Dr Oz: SafSlim – Montel Williams Diet Safflower Oil Supplement

  1. I’m glad Dr. Oz is featuring this high-linoleic safflower oil supplement today. It worked for me and the people I love. And it’s delicious and very easy to take.

  2. I was a little confused by the article above and needed clarification. Was it for Safflower Oil or Saffron Oil? As the above article mentions both, it could be a typo. Yes, it is a typo. When I visited Safslim’s website they had a lot of great information under the FAQ’s section. I am going to go out and buy this and try it today.

  3. Loraiina, the study that produced such amazing results used high-linoleic safflower oil, and that’s the key ingredient in SafSlim.

  4. PoopiePants says:

    This makes me go poopie in my pants. So much poo has come out of my bum. What shall I do Dr Oz? Please help xoxo PoopiePants

  5. arlene marsh says:

    What about sa

  6. arlene marsh says:

    What about spanish saffron? How do you take this which is in a powder form?

  7. Confusing article…saffron is a very expensive Indian spice that has nothing to do with Safflower oil. Get your facts straight please. This sounds a little like the Alli diet. I think eating sunflowers would be the best way to try this.

  8. It is a typo, Safslim has nothing to do with Saffron. It is, as stated by Diana above, from high-linoleic safflower oil.

  9. i am a diabetic,have copd,high colestrol,acid reflex,high blood pressure,40lbs over weight,BIG belly,artheritas so no exersize,im 63 yrs old,i do have some problems with loose bowels/so do you thinksafslim could help me?ihave tryed EVERYTHING Thank you

  10. i am a 66 yr old diabetic ,stage 2,i am also taking coumadin . Oil, product orseeds please help

  11. I’m with Pat. I would like to know if the Sunflower seeds yield the same results as the Safslim and if s then do we eat the seeds twice a day before meals as well?.

  12. I’ve been on the Safslim and the ab cuts for about a week today. So far I’ve gained a pound and an inch on my waist! Is that normal? Do you gain and then lose or do I need to stop? I have some hope left for this but if I keep gaining i’m going to go nuts. I’m 26.

  13. Dr. OZ do you answer any of these questions that people ask you?

  14. i started my first dosage tonight before dinner ,cant wait to see how it affects my body!

  15. NO, Dr. Oz does not answer questions here–this is “Dr. Oz Fans.” Go to his website to ask questions (and it’s never he who answers, but his staff). What I’d like to know is do the people who manage THIS site ever read the comments, because they need to correct that “saffron oil” mistake. And finally, for the sunflower seeds, Oz said that just eating three teaspoons a day would provide the same amount of safflower oil as SafSlim, and it doesn’t matter when you eat them. It’s getting them into the body that counts.

  16. Cynthia Henn says:

    Is it 3 tsp of sunflower seeds or sunflower kernels??

  17. Hulled sunflower seeds ( shells removed). The Health Nut now carries SafSlim.

  18. Kathleen says:

    Where does the fat go.

  19. O.K., I guess I’m really slow!!! Sorry, but am I understanding that you can just eat the sunflower seeds daily instead of the oil or supplements and it will do the same job?

  20. Started taking SafSlim 2.5 weeks ago — also dieting and walking and sit-up most days – no sugar no bread or pasta — I have lost 11 lbs feel great – most weight seems to be comming off my middle and down one pant size — the thing I notice most is that I am not hungry, and do not creave sugars, which makes it easier to keep to my diet. I also have minor psiorisis and it is so much better and getting better every day????

  21. I started Safslim yesterday, and I am excited to hopefully see results :) I bought some that was tangerine flavored Yum lol lol

  22. Rose Sanders-Plaugher says:

    Can you buy this product at Walmart, CVS or Walgreens? Or do you have to order it over the internet?? I also had a complete hysterectomy last summer. It seems like my hormones are going every different direction I’ve never weighed this much in my life. Please help.

  23. You can’t buy it at the big box stores. Check your local health food store. My store in Susanville CA sells it.

  24. They sell SafSlim at GNC and Vitamin Shoppe in 2 flavors. The tangerine cream fusion tasted like a melted creamsicle (YUM), but if you’re supposed to have 2 Tbsp of it a day, that’s 4 WeightWatchers points on the PointsPlus program! I just can’t afford to lose 4 out of my 26 points to that! I bought raw sunflower seeds to try taking 3 tsp (AKA 1 Tbsp) a day, which is only 1 point. I’ll update if I notice anything good!

  25. Has anyone experienced this product working after 30 day?

  26. You can buy the oil at walmart for around $3.oo It’s in the isle with the other cooking oils. It’s much cheaper to buy the oil instead of the supplements or the seeds cause you only need 2 tsp

  27. Sorry but the oil at Walmart IS NOT the same thing. You need Safflower oil that is high in Lineolic acid. The regular cookig oil is not.

  28. I’m using the oil that Dr Oz showed on his program. Not to mention…the proof is in the pudding and I have lost a 1/2 inch off of my stomach in 3 weeks time.

  29. FRANCINE says:

    i gained 2lbs on the safslim i first bought the 3 dollar oil at walmart to learn it waas the wrong kind so im on the right one and still no results of lost only gain i havent changed my diet only working out do i need to watch what i eat too , cause it didnt sound like that in the women worlds article.

  30. There is an oil that you can get at most grocery stores called Hollywood it is around 5 bucks its naturally expeller pressed no chemicals and is high oleic safflower oil. Although I must say my step mom who told be about this weight loss strategy has always been a large woman and has been using the oil from walmart 2tbsp a day and two tbsp of raw sunflower seeds a day with amazing results she has lost flab from her arms and her breasts have even gone down a bra size she is 62 years old and always been over 250 lbs she lost about 80 lbs using a tony little gazzelle over a few years bringing her to 170 when she found out about this diet she has been losing the inches that would not go away.

  31. Symantha says:

    Just started the Safslim 3 days ago, the taste is great will give follow up in 2 weeks.

  32. emmaleigh says:

    Isn’t it safflower seeds, since it is safflower oil?

  33. I just bought the new pina colada flavored safslim today, have had 2 doses today and have noticed it starting to work on my bowels. The flavor is good, i mixed it with juice to make it go down easier. I did try it without the juice and it was still good, it’s just thick so that ‘s why i mixed it. I’m hoping this will work. Only time will tell.

  34. I bought the 800 mg GLA from a website claiming to be part of Dr Oz’s, “Vitamins Because”.
    3 weeks and I’m still waiting for it to be shipped with all kinds of excuses only via web, they won’t answer the phone.
    So I’m going with Omega 3-6-9 from The Vitamin Shoppe, it has 5 stars ratings.
    Nordic Naturals Complete Omega 3-6-9 also has all 5 star ratings.

  35. Staf Slim removes body fat and increases lean muscle mass..that is why you lose inches but gain weight. Muscle wieghs 3x more than fat. This is why it takes longer to loose the wieght because you are gaining mass (a good thing, muscles that were flabby are now getting firmer). but eventually you will lose the wieght

  36. I just hope I live long enough to witness the weight loss.

  37. How is this different from CLA, also a luneolic product that has been featured on Dr Oz? Not sure if it is a good idea to take the SafSlim and the CLA.

  38. olusanya seun omotade says:

    hi Dr Oz,i am 37 years old.three years ago,i was tummy flatten but now,i have a portruded belly which i see like bad shape.my questions are 1.Is saflim proven to effect?2.If i use it,will it work for me been a black man?3.If used,will it make my tummy/belly flatten permanently?Lastly,what quatity must i use if im placed on it and how can it be sent to me here in Nigeria?what cost is it all for the stipulated prescription of saflim.And finally,can i be a major distributor for saflim or related medications from Dr Oz?glad to know all these on time sir.thanks.oluwaseun

  39. that lady who was like that stuff makes me poopy in my pants is crazy!

  40. Not at all happy with the SAFSLIM product ENDORSED on the Dr. OZ show… To us it is A HUGE SCAM… My wife took this product on the ENDORSEMENT from the DR OZ show with Montel… We have spent “like other viewers” several HUNDRED DOLLARS with NO RESULTS to show…Other than a slimer POCKETBOOK… I don’t plan on watching DR OZ’s program any further and personally think it’s all about the $$$ in his pocket not the public he claims to want to help.

  41. Dr. Oz.I got a free bottle of safslim on line.because i wanted to try it.and i went to pick it up. but they told me that they don’t have it.and that they will not get it.we are on a very tight budget.and i just wanted to try it.i even called around my area to see if i could find it.but nobody has it.i just cannot believe that they put this on to give.and not have it.It’s a shame.
