Atom is a dietary supplement developed by a Vida Divina. The company is based in America and sells products via third party distributors.
The company and the products doesn’t have much exposure except for these third party websites and is probably more of an opportunistic seller than a research and development based supplement manufacturer like much of the competition.
The Vida Divina products are often a poor match for the higher quality alternatives available and seldom drum up a sufficient level of interest from the consumers they are designed to target.
That does not mean we are suggesting Vida Divina’s products should be dismissed out of hand, but it’s true to say they have not exactly taken the world by storm and many people in the desired target group are unlikely to know Atom exists.
Here is the manufacturer’s take on what Atom can do for you:
- May help with fat burning
- Boosts energy
- May assist weight loss
Method of Action
Atom is intended to function as an energy provider and/or a thermogenic fat burner. Supplements that provide the latter benefit are designed to produce a slight elevation in body temperature that causes extra calories to be lost from the body in the form of heat.
Key Ingredients and Blend Potential
Each Capsule Contains:
- Chromium (100mcg): A trace mineral that prevents the post eating insulin level fluctuations and blood sugar spikes that may trigger a desire to snack on sweet food.
- Caffeine anhydrous (200mg): A popular diet pill ingredient that boasts proven thermogenic fat burning capabilities and is excellent for providing extra energy and mental focus.
The rest of the ingredients are in a proprietary blend and no individual inclusion rates are provided.
Atom Proprietary Blend (496mg):
Green Tea: Diet pills that don’t contain green tea are few and far between. It’s a very popular diet pill ingredient. The reason for its popularity is pretty simple. Clinical trials show that it works.
Guarana: A tropical berry derivative that is rich in caffeine but releases it nice and slow to provide extended benefits.
Hoodia: A cactus extract. Hoodia is alleged to be an appetite suppressant, but it’s value is often disputed and the ingredient should never be confused with nopal cactus extract (has an excellent reputation for getting results).
Caralluma Fimbriata: Another cactus extract that’s claimed to offer hunger suppression. It’s got a slightly better reputation than hoodia, but comes a poor second to nopal.
Glucomannan: A natural fibre that absorbs water and swells in the stomach sufficiently to make it feel full. This causes people using it to lose interest in food. Three 1g doses per day has proven to be effective in clinical trials. The entire Atom proprietary blend is less than 500mg so it cannot possibly contain enough.
Theobromine: A mild stimulant found in cocoa. It’s not a powerful as caffeine, but there’s evidence to suggest it may have a positive effect on the mood.
Cha de Bugre: A tree extract that’s a popular weight loss aid in Brazil.
Maca root: Often called Peruvian ginseng, Maca is a plant-derived stimulant that has acquired a reputation as a libido booster.
L-Theanine: An amino acid that appears to be capable of providing relaxation without sedation.
Banaba leaf: Although banaba leaf helps lower blood glucose levels, chromium has a better reputation and makes banaba’s presence here surplus to requirements.
Guggul: A stimulant derived for the sap of a tree. Guggul is often alleged to be good for weight loss, but more study is needed.
Pomegranate: Pomegranates are highly nutritious and the fruit’s naturally high fibre content means people who eat it may find it helps reduce their level of hunger. However, there is no evidence to suggest pomegranate fruit extracts can work in the same way.
The Vida Divina website does not provide any information about how to use Atom as a diet pill. However, people who are seeking an energy boost are told to take one capsule two times per day.
We were unable to find any customer reviews at all.
Side Effects & Health Considerations
Atom contains a lot of ingredients, most of which are provided in unspecified quantities.
There is no way of predicting how the various compounds will interact with each other and the absence of reliable customer reviews means it’s not possible to discover if the formulation has caused problems for past customers.
With this in mind, we suggest all potential users get a doctor’s approval before using this product.
Where To Buy Atom
The Vida Divina website does not offer a shopping cart or buy now buttons. People who are interested in buying the company’s products have to do so via a third part site.
However, there don’t appear to be all that many that have pages on the websites devoted to Atom specifically.
Atom is sometimes available via eBay and Amazon though. There is no way to be sure it’s the genuine product, but it’s certainly possible that some is sold this way. The price for a 60-capsule bottle can vary a little, but $55 is about average.
It’s going to be difficult to find a source of genuine Atom in Australia and other places far from its origin. We make a recommendation at the end of this review that you will find interesting no matter where you live.
There is a 90-day money back guarantee.
Atom contains the same amount of caffeine as a couple of cups of coffee.
The formulation also provides several other stimulants and, although the inclusion rates are not provided, it seems likely their combined abilities will provide some extra oomph and contribute to Atom’s value as an energy provider.
If the capsules are used alongside a strict diet and (hopefully) some form of exercise or sporting activity, they should also be capable of supporting people who are trying to lose weight.
The caffeine content alone should help ensure this but, good as it is, green tea’s value here is not known because unless a sufficient amount is included it will not bring much to the pot.
The lack of inclusion rates is big problem with most of the other ingredients as well. It makes effective product evaluation impossible.
Customer who take a chance on this product are supposed be able to pull their money back via the guarantee if they need to, but we wouldn’t want to take the chance if it was resting on the refund working out. There are much better options available.
