Monologue

Dr. Wallach explains how the new Youngevity product "Slender FX" acutally works.  Outlining how the product mimics a hormone called leptin that the body produces when it senses starvation.  So when people count calories and diet the body actually produces more leptin.  Which in turn intstructs the body to store more of it's nutrients as fat.  Primarily storing the fat in the abdomin and buttocks regions of the body.  The "Slender FX" mimics this hormone thus faking the body into not storing fat and in turn burning stored fats.

Pearls of Wisdom
