There’s a lot of variety out there when it comes to meal replacement shakes and we’re not just talking about the brands themselves. Everyone is trying to mark up the ingredients they use in a way that gets you excited to buy. But sometimes we get mixed signals…
“Scientifically Formulated” are words we’ve come to recognize on every single shake out there because the alternative that jumps to mind (some random person mixing crushed vitamin A tablets with Ovaltine mix) just doesn’t happen. Every shake out there is going to be formulated by scientists, but what about less obvious claims?
There’s a lot of funny trademarks when it comes to “huger-blockers” that are currently out on the market. Products touting fancy names like Slendesta, Appemine, Phenphedrine, or Slimtastoleanlinical (okay, I made that last one up.) Those of you familiar with our product, might recognize Slendesta because it’s what we use in our shakes. So why did we choose this particular one over any others?
Q. How long did it take to create the IdealShape meal replacement shake?
A. From beginning to end was 4 months.
Q. What kind of research went into choosing our ingredients?
A. We did not realize how difficult it would be to find a natural hunger blocker. It took about 6 weeks to find a patented, proven, and natural appetite suppressant. It was critical for us that it had numerous clinical trials to back its claims. Thanks to a manufacturer who we wanted to partner with, they led us to this ingredient.
Q. Are there any negatives about using Slendesta.?
A. There are a lot of hunger blockers out there that have been linked to some negative side-effects, but Slendesta hasn’t had any reports along those lines. Because a large part of it is from something we eat naturally, there seems to be less chance of complications. Some side effects of other hunger-blockers we found included headaches, agitation, rapid heart rate, and heart palpitations.
Something we found is that many hunger-blockers use ‘ancient chinese medicine’ methods of helping you lose weight, and while we’re not going to disregard them as holistic; it’s important to note that extracts from foods that our bodies are not used to have a higher chance of negative side-effects. Plants that may have helped for hundreds of years in China are still new to our bodies. They can have entirely different effects and sometimes those can be very negative.
