Leaner: The Herbal Way

-A +A

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, around 30 percent of the adult population across the country is obese. That translates to about 60 million people walking around with more than just a few extra pounds. It’s also reported that over 50 million people go on diets each year. Unfortunately, diets are notorious for being unsuccessful. Today many people are turning to herbal remedies to take a more natural approach to weight loss.

“We offer a safe and effective way for people to get control over their weight,� explains Valerie Hoffman, a certified herbalist and the president of Sunrise Herbal Remedies (
http://sunriseherbfarm.com), located in Redding Ridge, Conn. “Our herbal weight loss system is a natural approach to losing weight and the response we have gotten back is wonderful.�

This popular approach to natural weight loss is called the Skinny Mini Get Fit Weight Loss Kit. This herbal remedy weight loss kit comes with everything one needs for a successful weight loss journey. The system uses traditional herbs that are known to boost the metabolism, reduce fat, eliminate cellulite, assist with cravings, and increase energy.

“This program is designed to help people safely lose one to two pounds per week,� says Hoffman. “While losing weight there’s the added bonus of the person seeing improvements in health and their well being, including having brighter, clear skin, white eyes, more energy, an improved mood, and much more.�

This plan is so effective because it helps to improve the metabolism, while at the same time removing fats, toxins and cellulite.  The design of the program also works to break the addictive cycle that so many people have on eating carbohydrates.

The difference in this natural herbal weight loss program and so many others is that this is not a diet. People still get to eat and never feel deprived. They just take the herbs that their body needs in order to help them use the fuel efficiently.

“People love our natural approach to getting healthy,� adds Hoffman. “They no longer have to feel they are on a strict diet, being deprived, or following a boring routine. They simply learn to enjoy eating good food and let the herbs work to help them along the way. Everything in this kit is a gift from Mother Earth’s garden, and you can’t beat that.�

“Dandelion has always been one of my favorite herbs and it’s an important ingredient in this weight loss kit,� explains Hoffman. It is useful as a safe diuretic because it is so rich in potassium and many other vitamins and minerals such as iron, manganese, phosphorus, protein, vitamin A, cobalt, magnesium, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin C and more. “This wonderful plant has so many uses and yet is often neglected in our society,� adds Hoffman. “The primary use of the dandelion plant is for its superior liver cleansing qualities. The plant is a powerhouse of nutrients!�
