Youngevity® Announces the Launch of Slender
For Immediate Release
June 26, 2006
A Groundbreaking Addition to the Dietary Supplement Market
SAN DIEGO, CA– International Nutritional Products Company
Youngevity® announced today the addition of Slender Fx™, a scientifically
formulated all-natural weight management supplement, to the
company’s pre-existing line of nutritional supplements and cutting-edge
personal care and wellness lifestyle products.
Slender Fx™ contains a highly bioavailable proprietary blend
of viscous polysaccharides, shown in test studies to reduce
plasma leptin, which regulates the storage of body fat. In conjunction
with a reduced calorie diet and a committed exercise regimen,
Slender Fx™ works to support the body’s fat burning capacity
while providing increased energy potential.
The Centers for Disease Control reports that 65 percent of Americans
are overweight with estimates documenting one in four as obese.
In 1960-62, the average man weighed 166.3 pounds; by 1999-2002,
that average had escalated to 191 pounds, with the average woman's
weight jumping from 140.2 pounds to 164.3 pounds. Moreover,
while 85 percent of Americans say physical activity is pertinent
to good health, only 26 percent participate in rigorous activity
for at least 30 minutes each day.
“Slender Fx™ is a significant addition to our product line and
could make a substantial difference to a person’s lifestyle,”
said Steve Wallach, President of Youngevity®. “We are very excited
to introduce an instrumental component to the dietary supplement
market that supports healthful and safe fat loss for the long
term when combined with a balanced diet and committed exercise
