Question Cheat & Eat

Has any body used or have any opinion about the product "Cheat & Eat"? Are the ingredients safe? How about other products of the same type (sugar & starch blockers)?

A dietary fiber derived from chitin, a polysaccharide found in the outer shells (exoskeleton) of shellfish that is an effective weight loss and cholesterol-lowering aid. This insoluble, non-digestible fiber causes the molecular attraction and bonding of up to 12 times its weight in fatty oils- a process called polymerization. The gelled fat polymer is too large to be absorbed through the intestinal wall and travels through the body without being digested.

An Indian Ayurvedic herbal medicine that has come into modern use after two thousand years of folklore use in India for diabetes, and many other uses. The common name, "gurmar," means sugar destroyer. Gymnema is an effective hypoglycemic and anti-diabetic agent. Clinical research suggests it prevents the absorption and activity of glucose molecules through the intestinal tract. It is not a cure and does not substitute for proper dietary habits, but may be beneficial in regulating blood sugar levels in diabetics. The herb produces gymnemic acid, which neutralizes the sweet flavor of sugar if placed on the tongue prior to the sugar. The acid has been broken down into at least four fractions. Hentriacontane, a glucoside, along with gymnemic, acid, are responsible for the anti-glucose properties. Among the basic pharmacological properties of gymnema are antiviral; increases oxygen uptake, increases secretions of liver and pancreas.

Derived from a plant belonging to a large genus of evergreen trees and shrubs native to Asia, Polynesia, and South Africa. It has a long history of use in traditional Hindu medicine to relieve stomach problems, chronic indigestion, and rheumatism. The phytochemical extract of the fruit, (-) Hydroxcitric Acid, or (-) HCA, may help suppress appetite and has been shown to have dramatic effect at the cellular level in accelerating fat burning and inhibiting fatty acid syntheses. This happens because (-) HCA competes with citric acid for available levels of citrate lyase causing less acetyl Coenzyme A to form. This disrupts the synthesizing of fat. use of (-) HCA in a test concluded that the acid could lower fat levels without loss of body protein or lean mass.

VITAMIN C (ascorbic acid)* 25 MG -Aids in the absorption of the Cheat & Eat complex

I have never heard of it before.
What does it do?
Is it a weight loss supplement?
I have no idea what it is but I don't use diet pills or supplements. < I feel like that if I do. Why? because they helped me lose the weight not me. (own opinion)
