New Ephedra alternative aimed to promote weight loss

Ephedra and Ephedrine based diet products have recently been banned which has lead to the marketing of various alternatives. The manufacturer of Accuslim claim that their product has four patents relating to the use of one of the ingredients as a thermogenesis stimulant (increases body temperature causing fat to be consumed), increasing weight loss by allowing lipolysis (release of stored fat) , increasing lean muscle mass to total body mass, improving athletic performance and suppressing the appetite. It is being hailed as an alternative to Ephedra without the side effects of increased blood pressure and heart rate.
