Unichem Ghana Limited, a pharmaceutical manufacturing and distribution company, launched its natural supplement products on Friday to help in dietary management of obese patients.
Mr Jason M, Country Manager, noted that 70 per cent of Ghanaians are obese, hence the initiative to introduce “slim smart” in Ghana.
“Slim Smart among others is a blend of micronutrients – herbs that are rich in enzymes, support energy enhancement, breaks down fat efficiently and boost metabolism. Other natural ingredients include Green tea extracts that activates the body’s thermogenic fat burning activity, Resveratrol, which boosts the metabolic rate and curbs the appetite as well as Apple cider vinegar that aids digestion and actively suppresses body fat accumulation,” he said.
The product which was launched on the theme: “Lose weight now, ask me how,” was manufactured by Luex, a manufacturing company based in the US two years ago with no side effect. Slim Smart is a natural supplement that contains Raspberry ketones, which comprises clinically proven fat burning capabilities, African mango extract that regulates energy and reduces bad cholesterol and Grapefruit that helps users feel full, leading to natural reduction in calorie intake.
Mr Jason added that continuous use of the slim smart enhanced lifestyle changes and promotes weight loss in sedentary overweight obese adults. “This strategy with healthy balance diet would yield optimal weight loss.”
Other products that were launched includes ferrolex, vitaForce, Bonaplex syrup, Neovita, Free Flex and Man-up advanced formula. The products can be found in Parker, Vita, and Westpoint Pharmacy with the slim smart priced GH? 81.00 and recommended for persons 18 years and above, however, pregnant women are exempted.
