New Supplement Combines Five Trusted Ingredients
CHATSWORTH, CA, October 12, 2006—Natrol Inc., a leading manufacturer and distributor of branded nutritional products, today launched Slenderite™, a unique supplement combining five top-selling ingredients that support weight control and healthy lifestyles. The ingredients in Slenderite -- Phase 2 Starch Neutralizer®; EGCG (Green Tea); Caffeine; Chromium Picolinate and 5-HTP -- help support healthy weight loss when used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and exercise program, and also help to maintain a positive outlook while dieting.*
According to Eric Schick, Vice President of Marketing, “Slenderite contains five key ingredients that are well-known and trusted by consumers. In fact, retail surveys show that consumers often have the same ingredients in their shopping carts, but in separate supplements. Slenderite provides consumers with the convenience of one product containing all five ingredients to support their weight loss goals.”
Phase 2® is an all-natural, self-affirmed GRAS ingredient from Pharmachem Laboratories, Inc. that has been clinically shown to delay the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates. Phase 2 works by inhibiting the digestive enzyme responsible for converting starch into simple sugars the body can absorb.*
EGCG is a powerful antioxidant contained in green tea. Researchers believe it works synergistically with caffeine to promote fat oxidation. Slenderite pairs EGCG with caffeine, which may help burn excess calories and boost metabolism.*
Chromium picolinate is a source of the essential mineral chromium, which helps the body metabolize carbohydrates, fats and protein for energy. Chromium, working together with insulin, is also a vital part of the body’s natural mechanism for maintaining healthy blood glucose levels that are already within the normal range.*
Clinical evidence suggests that 5-HTP enhances mood, an action that is attributed to balancing levels of serotonin. Many people experience a poor outlook and irritability while dieting, and may not be able to stay on their diets as a result. Through balancing serotonin levels, 5-HTP helps dieters adopt a positive mindset for success that can help them stay on a diet long enough to achieve their desired weight loss goals.*
