Maybe you found yourself indulging in one or two more Christmas goodies , than you’d care to admit…
Or maybe you’re someone that has struggled with your weight for what seems like forever…
Regardless of how you started, if part of your new year’s resolution is to lose a few pounds… you’ll want to keep reading.
Because new research has found that a certain hormone inside your body RIGHT NOW could be the #1 reason you’re overweight.
And once scientists found a way to “turn down” this hormone they saw INCREDIBLE results.
In fact, in one study participants lost an astounding 23 pounds !
See, this breakthrough solution has been the subject of four clinical studies. And in every single one, men and women DROPPED pounds of stubborn fat.
O ne study in particular – saw truly remarkable results. Scientists gathered 61 overweight and obese adults, and split them into four groups. Two groups took a placebo pill (designed to do nothing). The other groups took a natural “fruit extract” every morning.
S ee, scientists had learned this fruit extract NATURALLY helps people shed their excess fat by turning DOWN this “fat” hormone.
The folks taking this fruit extract :
See, I know how frustrating it feels when you try losing weight – and nothing seems to work .
But it’s NOT your fault . It could all be because of a “fat” hormone called leptin.
See, leptin ’s job is to let your brain know when you’re no longer hungry, so you’ll stop eating. Simply put, when leptin is high, it sends the signal that we’re full. And when leptin is low, it signals that we’re hungry and need to eat.
But the problem comes when your levels of leptin are constantly high. Because high levels of leptin can cause your brain to STOP responding to it.
So , it no longer receives the signal that you’re full… or that you need to stop eating. E ven if you just ate a large amount of food.
It’s like your brain thinks you’re still hungry … So , you keep overeating !
High leptin could be the REAL REASON why dieting hasn’t worked for you in the past .
But luckily, my colleague Dr. Gerhauser , has found the best way to lower leptin and ENHANCE weight loss in his ground-breaking formula.
It’s called Cu r cuTrim .
And it’s full of natural compounds designed to LOWER your leptin and boost weight loss.
Like the West African Veldt Grape – this is the “fruit extract” that helps turn down leptin. It’s what, in one study , helped men and women lose 23 pounds in 8 weeks…
In another double-blind, placebo-controlled study including 67 overweight men and women, researchers found that those taking the West African Veldt Grape extract lost an average of 16 pounds in just eight weeks !
WITHOUT changing their diet or exercise plan!
This groundbreaking formula also includes curcuma – an Indian spice that reduces leptin-increasing CRP to help achieve lasting results…
One study took 226 diabetic men and women. Every morning, half took a 1500 mg dose of curcuma and the other half took a placebo.
Then, after 3 months, they returned to the lab to get their results. Those taking curcuma saw an incredible 47% reduction in their leptin levels.
As they continued taking curcuma every day, results got even better … A fter 6 months, their leptin levels to plummet ed an astonishing 70%.
See, by combining these potent weight loss nutrients in the right forms and doses, you can finally take control of the fat hormone …
And reveal the leaner, more attractive body that’s hiding right now.
The only catch? CurcuTrim is hands down, the best and only way to get these powerful weight loss nutrients all in one place.

Cissus quadrangularis, also known as Veldt Grape, is one of the most unusual plants in my garden. I have it contained in a hanging basket, but when a piece is knocked off, it will readily root on the ground. Cissus prefers to climb and will wind its way into the tree limbs if allowed. In early fall, the plant has small insignificant white flowers and, occasionally, small red berries that are are sterile.
The plant, Cissus quadrangularis, has been used as a medicinal plant since antiquity.
I grow this plant from the middle of September to the middle of May in my (glass-roofed) greenhouse (and/or sunroom). Minimum temperature in the greenhouse is set to 65 degr F, maximum set to 70 degr. but will be higher on sunny winter days. This plant spends the summers outside in NJ zone 6b.
It is a fast grower and small pieces root readily.
My plant is 4 years old and in a hanging basket in the filtered sun of a Vitex tree. Presently it's in the growing season and each branch gets about 1 inch longer a week. The pot is full of branches that got over 2 feet that I've broken and just thrown back in the pot. They root very easily. Here in zone 9 I only bring it into my garage for protection when winter temps drop below 38*. It's only bothered by an occasional snail that makes it up the tree to the pot and gnaws at it. It's not pretty, but interesting just the same and part of my succulent collection.
