The ingredients are mainly fruits and vegetables, including pomegranate, apple, kiwi, teng Huang fruit, Jerusalem artichoke and potato. It's hard to see why a product with these ingredients could be dangerous.

However, since there is no specification of the quantity and per cent of each component, it should at least raise some questions.

I would be weary due to the fact the both, I quote from Wikipedia. European Union and the United Kingdom has banned the product from being distributed. Why? Due to the fact it contains sibutramine, which is basically dispensed orally to treat obesity -- basically to supress hunger. "The FDA and European Medicines Agency is reviewing it and it is classified as a Schedule IV controlled substance in the United States. In 2010 the FDA noted the concerns that sibutramine increases the risk of heart attacks and strokes in patients with a history of cardiovascular disease.

Frequently encountered side effects are: dry mouth, paradoxically increased appetite, nausea, strange taste in the mouth, upset stomach, constipation, trouble sleeping, dizziness, drowsiness, menstrual cramps/pain, headache, flushing, or joint/muscle pain. Sibutramine can substantially increase blood pressure and pulse in some patients. Therefore regular monitoring needs to be performed.

The following side effects are infrequent but serious and require immediate medical attention: cardiac arrhythmias, paresthesia, mental/mood changes (e.g., excitement, restlessness, confusion, depression, rare thoughts of suicide). Symptoms that require urgent medical attention are seizures, problems urinating, abnormal bruising or bleeding, melena, hematemesis, jaundice, fever and rigors, chest pain, hemiplegia, abnormal vision, dyspnea and edema.

Currently, no case of pulmonary hypertension has been noted, although related compounds (such as Fen-Phen) have shown this rare but clinically significant problem.

Studies are ongoing into reports of sudden death, heart failure, renal failure and gastrointestinal problems. Despite a petition by Ralph Nader-founded NGO Public Citizen, the FDA made no attempts to withdraw the drug, but was part of a Senate hearing in 2005. Similarly, Dr. David Graham, FDA "whistleblower", testified before a Senate Finance Committee hearing that sibutramine may be more dangerous than the conditions it is used for." If you would like more information just on sibutramine you can go on either Google or wikipedia.

Different ads indicate super slim not super slim pomegranate does super slim refer to super slim pomegranate?

Both Super Slim and Super Slim Pomegranate come from the same manufacturer and on websites that advertise the Super Slim products there are warnings about the same side effects. Both diet pills are dangerous. The use of the term 'super slim' in the name of a product has no meaning other than to lead you to believe that the use of the product will, in some way, render the user thin. It is an inference, not a statement or a promise. The product can't legally make any claims to its ability to create slimness in a person so their only way to make you think that is in the name; you are the one that makes a connection to slimness where there is none. It's an incentive for you to pay a lot more money for a product that's the same thing on supermarket shelves. It's an advertising gimmick. I could just as well call my product 'Super Slim Hot Fudge Whipped Cream Butterscotch Marshmallow Ice Cream Sundae'; there are people that would buy it assuming that it was non fattening. Pomegranate juice is pomegranate juice and I'll bet that there are many, many better buys than 'Super Slim' that need no health warning at all.
