Suppresses calorie absorption
SWEDEN-Mcdical researchers at
the University of Kuopio, in Fin-
land, have discovered (accidentally)
a new weight-loss formula. The new
discovery appears to enable an over-
weight individual to lose pounds and
fatly tissue without conventional di-
eting or exercise.
Scientists made the discovery while
searching for a formula to lower
cholesterol. In a controlled study of
a test group of people, cholesterol
levels remained unchanged but the
doctors were astounded to find that
every patient who used the formula
lost weight. The published report of
this study stated, "A highly signifi-
cant decrease in body weight was
seen" in patients who received the
The formula was then tested at an-
other prestigious European univer-
sity hospital: Again, all patients lost
weight even though they did not
change their eating habits. The re-
port detailing this study, published
in the British Journal of Nutrition,
stated: "Body weight was signifi-
cantly reduced even though the pa-
tients were specifically asked not to
alter their dietary habits". One pa-
tient in this study lost more than 30
According to one informed source,
the active ingredient comes from a
100% natural botanical source and
contains no drugs or stimulants. When
taken before mealtime it bonds with
the food you eat and ' 'ties up'' calo-
ries, especially those from tats, sup-
pressing their absorption.
A significant portion of the calo-
ries ingested therefore pass through
the digestive system unabsorbed. Ine
body has to get energy to replace the
lost calories, so it starts to burn stored
fat, which can result in rapid body
weight loss. Clinical testing has
verified the safely of this formula for

sule form in the United States under

I want my friends to be with me.
I want to be happy.
Not to grieve.
