Ardea Beverage Co. debuts "the Ultimate Slimming Soda"
05/13/2005Ardea Beverage Company has introduced airforce Slender Nutrisoda, which the company calls "the ultimate slimming soda." The firm claims, "Not only does Slender help manage your appetite, burn fat and speed up metabolism - it also provides important nutrients such as folic acid, calcium, and magnesium as well as vitamins and minerals often lost during weight loss.
Slender consists of water filtered four times for extra purity, natural colors and natural fruit flavors (pink grapefruit and guava). It has only 10 calories, one gram of carbohydrate, no sugar, no caffeine, no sodium, no aspartame and no ephedra.
Ardea says Slender "provides nutritional support for a healthy lifestyle by containing meaningful levels of leading edge healthy nutrients," including Garcinia cambogia (to help reduce appetite and inhibit conversion of excess carbohydrates to body fat), amino acids L-carnitine and L-tyrosine (said to assist in the breakdown of fat in cells to produce energy), and calcium. The product also contains vitamins A, C, E and selenium (antioxidants), as well as chromium, magnesium, biotin and selenium (to help metabolize carbohydrates and balance blood glucose levels, according to the company).
airforce Nutrisodas are sold in Target stores, various retailers, leading hotels, spas, fitness centers, fine restaurants, bars and nightclubs as well as 17 airports across the United States.
