Why is there Alcohol in Slenderiix?

Slenderiix Homeopathic Tincture

(A tincture is typically an alcoholic extract of plants.)

Homeopathy is a 200 year old medical discipline with a proven track record of both safety and efficacy. Due the foundational principles of using natural substances in an infinitesimal dose within a diagnostic method of “like curing like”, there are no known contraindications to pharmaceutical drugs. Homeopathic preparations have been regulated under the law since the inception of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, authored by Senator Royal Copeland, M.D., a practicing homeopath, in 1938. (40)

Homeopathic preparations are recognized as drugs under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (“FD&C Act”), 21 U.S.C. § 201 et seq. Section 201(g)(1) of the FD&C Act, 21 U.S.C. § 321(g)(1), which defines the term “drug” as “articles recognized in the official United States Pharmacopoeia, official Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States, or official National Formulary, (i) or any supplement to any of them . . . .” (40)

Slenderiix employs a modernized approach to homeopathy, blending individual proven remedies into one cohesive formula to effectively address all imbalances which contribute to abnormal weight gain. Contributing factors include hormonal responses to excessive stress—whether dietary, emotional or environmental; capacity for cellular detoxification, neurotransmitter communication, stable hunger patterns and freedom from addictive behaviors, all of which contribute to systemic flushing of abnormal fat stores, when balance in achieved. Slenderiix was successfully tested in over 10,000 patients prior to ARIIX obtaining exclusivity and beginning in-house beta testing and clinical observation.
