Although patches were once quite rare in the weight loss industry, they are becoming much more commonplace recently, but Shape Patch Slimming Patches added themselves to this category back in 1992, well before this type of product was mainstream. The promise behind this product is that it will help a dieter to lose weight with less effort, and that it will be accomplished without the need for swallowing pills. The manufacturer of this specific product is calling it an all natural alternative method of weight loss as well as a method of keeping the weight off, through the suppression of hunger pangs.
The manufacturers claim that the ingredients – which it states are all natural – when combined to become the Shape Patch Slimming Patches formula, function as a type of stimulant to the thyroid gland, which allows the user to experience an energy boost, while the metabolic rate also rises and the appetite shrinks. Because of this, it claims that this product will help a dieter to eat less and burn more calories, at the same time. In fact, it promises that in the first half month of use, the user will experience between 4 and 8 pounds of weight loss.
Supposedly, this product stands out from other slimming patches because of the exclusive herbal extraction process that allows the properties of each ingredient to remain intact. That said, when looking at the ingredients that make up the formula, it is likely that it really wouldn’t matter what technique was used for obtaining the extracts, it likely wouldn’t be any more effective. The reason is that the ingredients are not scientifically proven and are based more on weight loss fads than any actual human evidence that they assist in losing weight. Moreover, there is no evidence that the patch will allow this product to be transported to any part of the body in which it would be effective, even if the formula was perfect.
The ingredients listed in Shape Patch Slimming Patches are: hoodia, garcinia cambogia, and bladderwrack. A one month supply of this product was $49.95 plus shipping at the time that this review was written. Though this is competitive with other products that contain similar ingredients, there is no more evidence that this one would work when compared to the other ones.
It is highly unlikely that, upon consulting a doctor, a recommendation would be made for the use of this product.
