Breakthrough News on Weight Loss

Stock up on Ripped Fuel, Diet Fuel, & Metabolift – Clinically Proven, Ephedra-free, Formulas Containing Thermogenic Ingredients to Aid in Weight Loss & Increased Energy Levels

HAUPPAUGE, NY (February 26, 2003), Twin Laboratories Inc. (Twinlab), a leading manufacturer of vitamins, minerals and nutritional supplements, would like to alert retailers of a possible increase in demand for Ephedra-free products as well as those that contain Green Tea Extract.

According to IMS Health Global Services, almost 55% of all adults in the United States were found to be overweight in 2000, and of these adults, more than 22% were obese. Other sources suggest that approximately $30 billion is spent each year on weight loss remedies in the United States including dietary foods and diet-related products and services. In addition, a National survey conducted by the Calorie Control Council in 2000 reported that 51 million people in the United States are on some form of diet.

Several reports regarding Green Tea Extract and its potential link to increased metabolism and weight loss have emerged as a result of clinical studies, including one published by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, which indicated that Green Tea Extract not only reduced body weight, but also significantly increased 24-hour energy expenditure. The authors of this study also concluded that 50 mg of Green Tea Extract (three times per day) has thermogenic properties that promote fat oxidation beyond that explained by the caffeine content alone.

Leading the way in the research and development of clinically tested, diet-centric formulas, Twinlab recently introduced its newly patented Ephedra-free formulas…Ripped Fuelâ, Diet Fuelâ, and Metaboliftâ that contain significant amounts of Green Tea and other natural fat fighting ingredients, offering customers a more natural, alternative way to shed unwanted pounds.

Ripped Fuelâ is geared toward athletic males age 18-34, looking to reduce fat and promote lean muscle mass.

Metaboliftâ products cater to less active women aged 25-49 years old who are looking for a fat fighting catalyst and increased metabolism.
