Neora, formally known as Nerium has created the NeoraFit weight management system, that's said to be a simple as 1,2,3. That's because this is a combo of 3 different powdered supplements, taken in the morning, afternoon and evening. In this unbiased review you'll discover the ingredients in the three Neora supplements and their research. So, is Neora Fit a scam or the real deal? Leave a comment below and let me know what you think.
What Is Neora Fit
NeoraFit is a simple 3 part system that, the company maintains will help you feel healthier and reach your ideal body weight. Here's a video the company has put out to explain the system:
The 3 supplements in the system are said to “work around the clock” to:
- support a healthy metabolism
- support processing of fats
- flush toxins from your body
- help you convert white fat to brown fat (which helps burn more calories)
- help you achieve a calm mind
What Are NeoraFit Supplements?
There are 3 supplements that you take with breakfast, at lunch and after dinner.
1. Slim + Skin: a powdered collagen supplement, taken at breakfast that's said to support weight loss, brown fat production, energy and focus and collagen production.
2. Block + Balance: This is the lemon-flavored lunchtime supplement that contains both probiotics and prebiotics. The Block + Balance supplement is said to help you with digestion, immune function, brown fat production, reduce cravings and bloating and help you process fats better.
3. Cleanse + Calm: This is the evening supplement. It's a powdered supplement you mix with water or tea. The Cleanse + Calm supplement is said to balance your intestinal tract, flush out toxins, and support bowel movements. This supplement may work as a laxative as it contains powdered aloe vera juice. In addition, Cleans + Calm contains an ingredient called “Happy Banana” which the company says will calm you down and help you sleep.

What Are The Weight Loss Ingredients?
Here are what I feel are the weight loss ingredients in each of the NeoraFit supplements:
- Indigestible maltodextrin (fiber)
- Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs)
- Guar gum (fiber)
- Green coffee bean (see review)
Block + Balance
- Fructo-OligoSaccharides (fiber)
- Inulin (fiber)
Cleanse + Calm

- Konjac extract (fiber)
- Aloe vera juice powder (laxative)
- Pectin (fiber)
- Spinach powder (appetite suppressant)
What Is Happy Banana?
Happy Banana is an ingredient in the Cleanse + Calm supplement. While the Neora doesn't specifically tell what Happy Banana is, it's possible this ingredient is used to help you sleep. Some research has shown that eating fruit – including bananas – can raise melatonin levels. Melatonin can improve circadian rhythms and help you get to sleep a little bit faster. Could this be why Happy Banana is in the NeoraFit system?
What Is Nippi Fish Collagen?
There is no fish called the nippi fish. Rather Nippi is a company that Neora gets its collagen from. The Nippi company – which was founded over 100 years ago – has branches in both Japan and Canada. Nippi fish collagen peptides are tasteless and odorless and derived from fish skin and scales which are usually discarded, so it's environmentally friendly.
Neora Fit Research
Clinical proof could not be located. While the company website has before after pictures of people who have had good results, this is not the same as clinical studies that compare Neora Fit to a placebo. No research on any of the 3 products in the NeoraFit system could be located. That's not to say the supplements don't do anything. It's possible they have effects. For example, many of the ingredients do have antioxidant properties.
Why Does It Contain Nicotinamide?
Nicotinamide is the other name for niacin (vitamin B3). Nicotinamide has become popular in the world of anti-aging medicine due to its ability to raise NAD+ levels in cells. NAD+ is a key player in the ability of cells to make energy. As we get older our cellular NAD+ levels decline. Some think boosting NAD+ by using nicotinamide may improve energy and reverse some signs of aging.
The Neora company makes no claims about raising NAD+ levels.

Who Makes Neora Fit?
The company is called Neora LLC. It has been in business since 2010. Previously, the company was called Nerium International. It is a multi-level marketing (MLM) company where people can purchase products directly from distributors, called Brand Ambassadors as well on the business website (Neora.com). The company is located at this address: 4201 Spring Valley Rd Farmers Branch, TX 75244-3631.

According to the Better Business Bureau, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) sued Neora in 2019 over allegations that it was an illegal pyramid scheme. They further alleged Neora promoted their memory supplement, Neora EHT to help brain trauma, Parkinson's, and memory problems like dementia and Alzheimer's disease. See the Neora EHT review for more insights. See the BBB website for more information about the company, customer complaints, and FTC lawsuits.
Neora Fit & Brown Fat
Both the Slim+ Skin and Block + Balance supplements are supposed to help with brown fat production. Brown fat burns more calories than white fat so it's more desirable to have. Humans mostly have white fat, which doesn't burn many calories. Having more brown fat may help with weight loss. So, can Neora Fit enhance brown fat production? There are two ingredients that may shed light on this.
The Block + Balance supplement contains nicotinamide (vitamin B3), better known as niacin. In one study, researchers observed the mice given niacin had increased body temperatures and greater metabolism of their brown fat. But, in this study, researchers used a specific type of niacin called nicotinamide riboside. Neora Fit contains another type of niacin called nicotinamide (niacinamide). While it's possible niacinamide would improve brown fat metabolism the same as nicotinamide riboside, it would take more research to prove. Keep in mind this was a mouse study. Does niacin help brown fat metabolism in humans?
The Cleanse and Calm supplement contain moringa leaf extract. In one investigation moringa was shown to change white fat into brown fat. However, this occurred in isolated cells. Does Moringa transform white fat into brown fat in people? It will take more study.
Neora Fit vs. The Competition
To the company's credit, there aren't any similar supplements on the market to compare it to. This makes it challenging to know if it's better than others like:
- Shakeology (review)
- Herbalife Formula 1 Shake (review)
- Plexus Slim Hunger Control (review)
- Thrive Weight Loss Patch (review)
That said, some of the ingredients in NeoraFit are also found in other supplements. That, tells us other companies also think they are worthwhile. Here's a short list of NeoraFit ingredients that are also found in other supplements:
- Konjac is also found in Lipozene (review)
- Inulin and green coffee are also found in It Works Skinny Brew Coffee (review)
- Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) is found in Yacon syrup (review)
- Collagen is also found in Dr. KellyAnn's SLIM Collagen Coffee (review)
How each of these competing supplements compares to NeoraFit is unknown until head-to-head clinical studies are performed.

NeoraFit Pros & Cons
Here are the pros and cons of Neora Fit. These are my opinions. You're may be different.
|Easy to purchase||No clinical research on Neora Fit|
|No swallowing pills||It's expensive|
|Easy to mix with water/juice||Legal battles with FTC|
|Program is easy to follow|
Does Neora Fit Work?
To me, NeoraFit looks like an expensive fiber and probiotic supplement. While it's possible the unique blend of ingredients work better together to boost health and provide superior weight management, it will take clinical proof to know for sure.
