Slim Too* - 100 Capsules - 480 mg. There are many reasons why the body gains weight, especially as we get older, our diet, of course is one of the main factors. Our society indulges itself in foods that are high in sugar and fat content. Many times we see products that contain sugar but claim to be fat free. What we fail to remember is that the body stores sugar as fat. Artificial sweeteners, thought to be a safe substitute for sugar are now being proven to be very unsafe and can cause the body to gain weight. Dairy, breads, high meat and sugar consumption contribute greatly to weight gain in individuals. Hormone imbalance is another factor that affects women of all ages, but especially during and around menopause. We tend to slow down as we age, as does our metabolism, and our digestive system. (Stress is another factor that affects the body's ability to maintain a healthy weight.) There are no magic pills to loose weight. But with proper diet, sufficient exercise and using herbs that have been found to be safe and effective for weight loss, we can gradually lose the extra and unwanted pounds. Garcinia is one of the main herbs in this formula. Scientific studies suggest that this herb can be helpful in controlling the appetite, slowing down the conversion of excess carbohydrates into fat by triggering fatty acid oxidation in the liver. This process allows the body to build additional stores of body energy (glucose). Grandma's Herbs SLIM TOO is caffeine free so it works great for those night time munchies and won't interfere with a good nights sleep. Recommendation: Start with 2 capsules with each meal, up to 3 times a day. You may adjust to more if needed. We suggest that you use in conjunction with SUPER LAX to help get a sluggish system moving.
