LOS ANGELES — Representing the first product of its kind in the category and a distinct alternative to dysfunctional functional beverages, Drink Me Slim is being introduced as the only caffeine-free appetite suppressant and fat-burning drink available today.
Packaged in convenient 3-ounce, 10-calorie bottles that can easily be carried in purses, jackets, gym bags, briefcases and backpacks, Drink Me Slim beverages are ideal for consumers yearning to manage their portions – the ultimate key to long-term weight control – and burn additional fat during exercise workouts. MSRP is $3.29 per bottle.
The new brand is being introduced this Spring, first in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and then soon thereafter in Los Angeles. The company is in discussions with a wide array of national distributors and retailers and is expected to announce additional major market locations shortly (Drink Me Slim is exhibiting at Expo West in Booth 6819).
Berry-flavored Drink Me Slim is also available for purchase on the Drink Me Slim website, with several prominent etail partners expected to soon carry the novel product as well.
Created to offer consumers a delectably efficacious alternative to the countless unreliable and even unhealthy weight-loss and fat burning beverages that have flooded the market during recent years, Drink Me Slim is not only completely free of caffeine, but is powered by a proprietary blend of five proven appetite-suppressant and metabolism-boosting natural ingredients:
- Green Tea – A timelessly popular drink first used to treat ailments in ancient China, green tea today has been widely shown to help suppress appetites and even help lower one’s risk of developing heart disease or certain types of cancer.
- Garcinia Cambogia – Deemed the holy grail of weight loss by Dr. Oz, Garcinia Cambogia extract (hydroxycitric acid or HCA) has been clinically proven to promote fullness, reduce appetite and inhibit fat production. Added benefits include a decrease in belly fat, a mood-balancing increase in serotonin and the management of the stress hormone cortizol. Garcinia Cambogia is derived from a small, pumpkin-shaped fruit native to Indonesia but also grown in other parts of Asia and in Western and Central Africa.
- L-Carnitine – A nutritional supplement known to boost metabolism and serve as a mild appetite suppressant, L-Carnitine is widely regarded as perhaps the most effective fat burner available today. Carnitine is a nitrogen-containing compound that assists in fat metabolism and is responsible for transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria so they can be used for energy production.
- Fibersol 2 – Clinical studies have repeatedly shown the health benefits of increased fiber intake, especially in helping those facing weight management, digestive and diabetes-related issues. Researchers from the U.S. National Cancer Institute reported recently that increased dietary intakes of fiber are also associated with helping combat cardiovascular, infectious, and respiratory diseases.
- Chromium Picolinate – Often used in alternative medicine to promote lower cholesterol or improve the body’s use of glucose, Chromium Picolinate works in tandem with insulin produced by the pancreas to metabolize carbohydrates.
Drink Me Slim is also free of high-fructose corn syrup and provides 100% of the recommended daily amount of vitamins B-12 and B-6, along with 50% RDA of vitamin C. Consumers should consume three bottles per day before meals for optimal results, including one bottle 20 to 30 minutes before exercising. The product is recommended for consumers aged 12 and up.
According to an article on the Mayoclinic.com site, energy drinks containing sugar may contribute to weight gain, while excess caffeine can result in tension, irritability, insomnia, rapid heartbeat and increased blood pressure. Drink Me Slim is free of both sugar and caffeine, while providing effective ingredients such as L-Carnitine and Garcinia Cambogia in a much more appealing form than bulky supplement pills. All of which explains why Drink Me Slim is already taking off as the ultimate natural, caffeine-free chaser.
“Our goal in developing Drink Me Slim was to create the first caffeine-free appetite suppressant and fat-burning shot-sized beverage on the market and to ensure that it remained every bit as tasty and healthy as it is effective,” said Drink Me Slim co-founder and CEO Christopher Dyson. “We’re extremely heartened by the initial reaction to the product among both women and men, most of whom – like me – had spent years investing in weight loss and energy enhancement products loaded with calories, sugar and caffeine, driven by hype, and decidedly unappetizing to consume. We look forward to a very successful launch in Texas, a state trying to cope with a very high obesity rate, and Los Angeles, which has helped set health trends in the country for decades.”
