Bottom Line…

The package design lacks shine and gloss. This does not detract from overall product quality because the product makes use of standard label making technology. The label is well made and clear dosing guidelines are provided. The label does an excellent job of stating the products purpose and intended use.

Product formulation is excellent and does, as the label claims, exploit the latest scientific research on weight-loss.

The products ability to induce efficacious body composition change while providing energy and simultaneously reducing hunger cravings is ideal. The absence of harsh stimulants make this product an ideal choice for persons sensitive to stimulants.

The price of the product make it an ideal value. It is clear that an emphasis was placed on product quality and value as opposed to label manufacture. Focusing on things other than product development would raise the price of the product while providing the consumer with nothing of extra value. Would rather pay more for a fancy label, or would you rather keep your money and instead get great results?

This product is an excellent value.
