Hi, just wondering if anyone has any info on whether the following things really have any benefit in a weight program. A friend of mine gave me a few samples of a packet of citrus drink you put with water that have the following:
Calcium Pyruvate
Chromium Picolinate
Garcinia Cambogia
Vitamin B-6, B-12, B-3, C
Garcinia Cambogia
Burdock Root Tea
Licorice Root Tea
Fennel Seed Tea
Peppermint Tea
Stevia (sweetener)
Purified Water and Preservatives

Packet is about 2Tsp. of liquid you mix with 8 oz. of water.

Thanks in advance for any info!!!!!!!

I can offer some information ( a little bit anyway) about the chromium picolinate (sp?). It is made to speed up the metabolism. Trouble with it...you have to take it for the rest of your life. If you stop, the metabolism goes with it. Commonly found in a lot of over the counter diet aids.
