The Secret to The South Beach Body

About Vanna Belt

As an Instagram fitness star, Vanna Belt promises that her line of signature products—along with a healthy diet and regular exercise—can help you achieve a hard, tight, fit physique. Specifically, she claims her products are “the secret to the South Beach body.”

To accomplish this, we’re told Vanna Belt’s products can help “set real results into motion” by addressing stubborn problem areas like the stomach, hips, thighs, and buttocks. And by featuring different formulations, we’re told her creams can provide around-the-clock maintenance.

Look, even after you’ve reached a comfortable weight, there’s no denying that it can take a lot of work to get back to your ideal look. But is there anything about Vanna Belt’s products that will boost your results? That’s the main question we’ll help you answer here.

What Products Does Vanna Belt Offer?

Overall, there are five different products within the Vanna Belt lineup:

Trim-V Supplement

According to the company, their Trim-V supplement contains a blend of nutrients that enhance mood and feelings of wellbeing, along with thermogenics to help convert fat into usable energy. This way, we’re told it can help you shed fat while taking control of your mental performance.

According to the supplement’s label, Trim-V contains the following ingredients:

  • Vitamin B1 (as thiamine mononitrate) 1.5mg
  • Vitamin B2 (as riboflavin) 1.7mg
  • Niacin (as niacinamide) 20mg
  • Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine hydrochloride) 4mg
  • Vitamin B12 (as methyl cobalamin) 30mg
  • Pantothenic Acid (as calcium pantothenate) 10mcg
  • Chromium (as chromium polypicolinate) 600mcg
  • Proprietary Blend 545mg: Beta Phenylethylamine, Caffeine Anydrous, Theacrine (as TeaCrine), Octopamine HCl (as Octopalean)


When reading about Gel-V on Vanna Belt’s website, your eyes might have gone cross-eyed from all the unnecessarily complex wording.

In a nutshell, this proprietary formula (or “medicinal-grade plant complex,” as the company calls it) promises to deliver nutrients that improve circulation, neutralize free radicals, boost metabolism, and even repair stretch marks. Ingredients include (only active ingredients are hyperlinked):

Camellia sinensis leaf extract, Fucus vesiculosus extract, Centella asiatica extract, menthol, camphor, alcohol, glycerin, carbomer, triethanolamine, citric acid, aqua, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, FD&C Yellow No.5, FD&C Red No.40, and FD&C Blue No.1.

According to the Vanna Belt, Gel-V can smooth, hydrate, and beautify the skin on your stomach, hips, thighs, buttocks, and other problem areas. Simply apply a thick spoonful directly to the skin three times daily, 3-5 times per week.

V-Glow features a similar formulation, but is intended to act as a bronzer, while Gel-V Hot promises to elicit a “warming sensation upon contact and penetrate to intensify treatment.”


A rubber and latex-based device that’s more or less shaped like a hand, with 9 rotating spheres on the underside. When used to knead the skin, Vanna Belt claims it delivers a stimulating massage, while boosting circulation, increasing absorption, and effectively eradicating cellulite.


Available in sizes XS through XXXL, Vanna Belt tells us their V-Belt shaper uses a blend of soft cotton and flexible spandex to provide “physical reinforcement” and to restore skin elasticity (V-Belt 2.0 is intended for those with longer torsos). We’re also told it can be worn all day, in conjunction with the use of Gel-V, when working out, and even at night.

Vanna Belt’s V-Vest uses a similar principle but is shaped like a vest in order to provide more coverage area and to reduce more unsightly bulges. Taking it one step further, V-Body promises to “tackle unsightly bulges on all fronts, from all angles.”

Finally, V-Belt Arms and V-Belt Thighs are designed to “isolate and target” each area, although no specific benefits are mentioned.

V-Belt and V-Belt 2.0 are available in different V-Kits, which include one V-Belt, along with a tube of Gel-V, Gel-V Hot, and a V-Glove (depending on the kit you choose). You can also purchase a V-Band Kit that includes one tube of Gel-V, three color-coded resistance bands, door anchor, two cushioned-grip handle attachments, 2 ankle attachments, and a nylon carrying bag.

V-Lifestyle Guide

According to Vanna Belt, their V-Lifestyle Guide is based on a nutritionist-certified 8-12 week plan and promises to take the guesswork out of calorie counting and vitamin and macros ratios. Or, as the company calls it, a “360-approach to sculpting the best version of yourself.”

In addition to the Nutrition Guide, you’ll gain access to an online V-Lifestyle Calculator, which promises to deliver all the customized nutritional coaching you need to reach your goals.

Whew! Now that we’ve covered Vanna Belt’s product lineup, let’s find out what the evidence has to say about the results you’ll achieve with them.
