Here is the link for it. It might be called SlimSeduction instead.

I looked at the ingredients and there was only one ingredient that I didn't recognize:

Guggul - Guggulsterones (This information was provided by them, not by a third party)

Guggulsterones have been used in ayruvedic medicine in India for thousands of years. Guggulterones, or guggulipids, extracted from to Comiphora mukul plant are believed to help regulate thyroid function, which in turn among other functions regulates metabolism.

Research studies using guggelsterones showed a reduction in triglycerides (fats) and LDL (bad) cholesterol as well as increases in HDL (good) cholesterol7. Further studies have shown similar effect of guggulsterones related to reduction of body fat8.

It looks like a pretty standard diet pill to me, containing ingredients that haven't been proven to be effective and may be potentially dangerous (synephedrine).

Guggulipid - According to Berkeley Wellness (University of CA) it has potential in reducing cholesterol, but their statement about thyroid function is quite different -

Quote:
Pregnant women and people with thyroid disorders, as well as those on medications such as calcium channel blockers, should not take guggulipid, nor should women with menstrual problems. Possible side effects include excessive menstrual bleeding. Digestive disorders, such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, have also been reported.
I wonder why the company is claiming it can regulate thyroid function

The pill is loaded with stimulants. Yerba mate, guarana, and green tea are sources of caffeine. Advantra Z® (10 % synephrine) is bitter orange, a strong stimulant that works like ephedra in the body and is on the Consumer Reports dirty dozen list of most dangerous supplements. Dandelion is a diuretic, so maybe if you pee off a pound you'll think you lost weight. Calcium has been shown to be helpful in weight loss when from dairy sources, not supplements.

I'm totally confused how any of this creates a passion pill

I don't know! I was wondering the same. Although, it is usually self esteem of those that are overweight that results in decreased sexual drive rather than the weight itself. Weird claims

Thanks for your input. A friend asked me about this pill this morning and I told her I would see what I could find out. I for one prefer to do this the old fashion way, its how I lost the first 57 and its how I will loose the rest.
