View Full Version : Laminaria Extract - Miracle Diet Pill??

So has anyone tried or heard about this 'miracle' diet pill called "Laminaria Extract"?? Well, 'miracle' according to the manufacturers and the reviews i've seen by the (i-assume-to-be-legitimate) testimonials!

Ok, so i've decided to try it. How can I not when people swear black and blue that it "melts fat off you, between 1-2 pounds per day"?? Sounds too good to be true and I figure for around US$40 that it's worth a try. Got them in the mail today, so starting tonight - 1 with breakkie and plenty of water.. etc.

I haven't seen any recent articles about it and am wondering why? Does it just not work? I've read so many positive stories, but then again, who knows if those people work for the company or not. Well, i'm gonna see for myself.

Let me know if anyone's heard about this stuff, or better yet, tried it!

DON"T DO IT!!!!!!! I have watsed so much money on that stuff. I stayed to their directions exactly with no results. NONE. After you buy it you're allowed to enter the 'for members' area, where they say that for some people it may take longer for their bodies to react to it. I bought 4 months worth of the stuff. No results. Then, maybe a year later I bought the, what is it called- the laminaria plus?? something like that. I thought maybe I needed a better boost. I just don't learn from my mistakes. Don't waste you're money. What I heard is that the laminaria is just a heavy dose of iodine. If you want to try something similar get kelp with iodine in it at a health food store. The iodine and minerals in the pills could kick your thyroid into gear, which would then get your metabolism up to speed. However, it seems this would only actually work if you had a hypothroid in the first place. In my case, that's not the prob. Eating too much is :)

If it really worked, they would be selling it on every street corner of every city across the world. :)
