Mosaic Nutraceuticals Completes Development of Hoodia Appetite Suppressing Candy Chew

DALLAS, May 12, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Mosaic Nutraceuticals (MCNJ) announced today that it has completed composition and preliminary testing of the Leanlicious(C)(TM) candy chew. Leanlicious(TM) contains an extract of Hoodia Gordonii Succulent (cactus) . Testers report the Leanlicious(TM) candy chews taste great and produce a substantial reduction in appetite. Prior to making Leanlicious(TM) available for distribution, Mosaic will conduct additional testing to establish guidelines for responsible use of this product.

Hoodia Gordonii is a leafless, spiky succulent native to South Africa. It is reported that the San Bushman have been using parts of the plant to stave off hunger for over 25,000 years. Researchers believe that Hoodia Gordonii misleads the brain to believe that it has just eaten, significantly reducing the feeling of "hunger". Hoodia Gordonii is a natural plant-based nutritional supplement.

President of Mosaic Nutraceuticals, Charlie Townsend said, "We are committed to the safe use of this candy chew as an assist to people seeking to control their appetites and lose weight safely and naturally.
