How (and) does it work?
Here we examine how it works and if it does work at all. They supplement functions by diminishing hunger. The idea being that with a person feeling less hunger or not as much hunger as the person usually feels, the client is prone to eat less. If the client eats less, the body has less food and by extension carbohydrate to digest and so the unused part of food which is usually stored in the body as fat is reduced. This supplement contains a natural substance called Garcinia Cambogia which has the unique function of reducing the effectiveness of Citric Lyase which is the enzyme which aids the body in converting excess carbohydrate to fat. If this enzyme’s function is inhibited then the body converts less carbohydrate to fat . HCA is also increased in quantity and effectiveness by this supplement and this functions in reducing fat and triglycerides levels in the body. All these functions help to reduce the fat content of the body. This supplement also contains other natural substances which help the general wellbeing of the body. Customers and clients have given this supplement very high marks for efficacy and so we can safely say that based on clients reviews and comments this supplement does work.

What’s bad about it?
This supplement does contain shell fish derivatives and so people allergic to sea food certainly cannot make use of it. This is sad. It also is available only online and in the USA. This writer feels that plans should be underway by the company to spread their nets abroad as people are interested in this supplement .
Sletrokor ticks a lot of boxes and it has a lot going for it. The customer reviews are superb, the guarantee on the product is excellent, the fact that it has FDA approval is confidence boosting and many other good things can be said about the supplements. The feedback from scientific and academic trials has also been sterling and so we can be safe to say that for now, with existing evidence Sletrokor is the supplement to beat when it comes to weight loss and shedding of excess body fat.
