Trim with tonic
True Toniq, the Boulder-based creators of Brain Toniq, are debuting a second beverage. This one, called Trim Toniq, curbs the appetites of its drinkers.
Trim Toniq is one of the first appetite suppressants without stimulants like hoodia and caffeine.
Instead, it uses herbs and natural compounds with appetite-lowering affects. It includes eight active ingredients, including Achyranthes Aspera, Irvingia gabonensis, coca leaf extract and conjugated linoleic acid.
Trim Toniq is available at www.truetoniqs.com and at some retail outlets.
